Value University to teach healthcare professionals how to improve care

University of Utah Health Care will offer healthcare professionals a free online leaning platform, Value University, to help them achieve the Triple Aim of improved value and care at lower costs. The program, developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will use University of Utah processes. "Classically, healthcare providers are not trained in any of the competencies around what improving value actually is and means," said Robert Pendleton, M.D., chief medical quality officer at University of Utah Health Care, in an announcement published by Hospitals & Health Networks. "We're sharing what we've learned about what centering healthcare around patients truly means in an efficient package that people can access at their convenience." Announcement
