Value Institute Spring Symposium 2016 – Bridging the Gap: Connecting Data to Decisions

In a transformative era when reimbursement models are rewarding quality improvements in medicine, Christiana Care is well-positioned to bring evaluative science to clinical practice because of the research of the Value Institute.

“If we are going to be successful in achieving optimal health for our patients and exceptional patient experience, as well as maintaining organizational vitality, we need the Value Institute,” said Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH, president and CEO. “They are a critical partner in all that we do.”

Dr. Nevin praised the Value Institute’s focus on achieving excellence in patient-centered care at the Value Institute’s Spring Symposium, June 10 at the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center. More than 200 participants gathered to celebrate the growth and success of the Value Institute, celebrating its fifth anniversary this year.

Participants learned about representative research to improve clinical outcomes for patients and the creation of a collaborative clinical/research culture devoted to health care delivery science applied across Christiana Care service lines.

“This is a form of external validation, showing that our work is significant and is being shared on a national platform,” said Eric V. Jackson Jr., M.D., MBA, director, Center for Health Care Delivery Science, and associate director of the Value Institute.

Symposium participants also heard about the many presentations at national and international medical meetings and numerous publications by members of the Value Institute team.
