CEO Checklist for High-Value Health Care

A new report from the participants — mostly CEOs of hospital systems –of the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care is out,  sharing lessons compiled on how to achieve better health care outcomes at lower costs. The report is intended to generate discussion about how to collectively transform the health system at the individual organization level. The report uses this framework to list ideas for the CEO and other leaders, providing brief case studies illustrating their effectiveness:

1. Foundational elements:

  • Governance priority
  • Culture of continuous improvement

2. Infrastructure fundamentals

  • IT best practices
  • Evidence protocols
  • Resource utilization

3. Care delivery priorities

  • Integrated care
  • Shared decision making
  • Targeted services

4. Reliability and feedback

  • Embedded safeguards
  • Internal transparency
