ImproveHealthCare: Promoting Health Systems Literacy


Medical education in the United States does a poor job of addressing larger health system issues that affect every health care professional's ability to deliver care to their patients. ImproveHealthCare seeks to help new physicians become engaged in improving health system performance by hosting patient-centered case discussions and Web-based educational modules focused on health care access, quality, and disparities. It has achieved moderate success so far; continued Fund support will allow for organizational stability and an expanded reach. The proposed project includes assembling content from case studies and filmed lectures to create a formalized curriculum; hosting an annual symposium for medical students; supporting students' health system improvement projects; and organizational development to expand capacity and scale.
