Your Partners in Health

The Value Institute’s multidisciplinary expertise  gives us the ability to delve into the initiatives Christiana Care pursues to achieve medicine’s Quadruple Aim.

We have three programattic areas designed to support a learning health care system, on in which science, informations, patient-clinian partnerships, incentives and culture are aligned to promote and enable continuous real time improvement in both the effectiveness and efficiency of care.

At Christiana Care Health System the Value Institute removes the structural barriers that have traditionally been built to separate the health care system by fully engaging clinicians, patients and health care data in the research process. The knowledge gained leads directly to enhancements of the system of care that our neighbors value.
