GMED 5097 - Delivering High Quality, Cost-Effective Healthcare: Preparing for Your Role as Physician Leaders

Ever wondered how much that CBC actually cost? Or why a band-aid costs $12 in the hospital? Is it possible to deliver cost-effective care that is comprehensive? Using a series of cases to explore quality in healthcare, small groups will be guided through some of the quality measures being used to “grade” physicians and hospitals for care, with an introduction to costs of care. Clinical scenarios will be used to illustrate key concepts in quality, and participants will be challenged to address the role of physicians in delivering both quality and cost of care delivered.
