In the era of value-based health care, providers are increasingly focused on delivering greater value, which is a function of quality and cost.

Already, significant strides have been made in providing frontline clinicians with tools and information to continuously deliver better-quality care. However, little progress has been made in giving providers practical, easy-to-use tools to effectively control costs.

On October 26, 2017, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Kedar Mate—the chief innovation and education officer at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement—will discuss the importance of providing frontline clinicians with better tools to control costs. Mate will focus on:

  • Why providing clinicians with cost-control tools is so important
  • Why clinical analytics systems that provide cost information are rarely integrated with care processes
  • Major challenges with existing cost-control methods, which are time and resource intensive

Mate will also describe continuous value improvement (CVI), which is a new approach for helping clinicians control costs. He will describe how this method differs from other approaches, and will share a case study of how one major provider is seeing impressive results from CVI.

If your health system is focused on delivering greater value but lacks good tools to help clinicians better control costs, join Kedar Mate and HBR on October 26.
