With a training session for clinical care leaders in Los Angeles last week, we’ve now completed four such sessions, training a total of 170 clinical care leaders on new practices that improve health outcomes while reducing costs. See here for a detailed overview of the first session in Philadelphia, courtesy of the 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund there.
These training sessions, which previously took place in Philadelphia, Hartford, and Portland (OR), are part of our Pioneer Employers activities. They demonstrate the traction that our work has generated over the last two years.
More importantly, they show how – in collaboration with the Center for the Health Professions at UCSF – we can make progress on an issue of vital public concern. As experts across the political spectrum agree, rising health care costs threaten to bankrupt families, doctors and other providers, large and small businesses, and government at all levels. Thus, we must find ways to slow the growth in costs without sacrificing quality.
