To promote the pursuit of value in health care delivery in the U.S. by identifying high- and low-value clinical services, tracking the use of such services, and helping to ensure that consumer preferences are incorporated in health care decisions.
  • The consortium will work with researchers to identify the strategies that lead to better value, such as health beneļ¬t designs that incentivize the use of high-value services and discourage the use of low-value services.
  • The consortium will also create a learning community to facilitate collaboration and dissemination of the work in these groups conducting research on value in health.


The consortium is co-directed by George Miller, PhD, an Altarum Institute Fellow, and Mark Fendrick MD, a VBID Health principal and director of the University of Michigan V-BID Center.
