Value-Focused Care



Value-Based Care Program

Inadequate access to the right care, provided by the right people, in the right time and place, and the resultant high cost and often sub-optimum quality of care are major problems and are at the heart of much of the inequity in healthcare throughout the U.S. The Value-Based Care (VBC) Program is a Stanford Health Care Program aimed at improving the delivery of high-value care while reducing the cost of healthcare.

Cost Savings Reinvestment Program

The Department of Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery strives to deliver high-value care. This involves continuously improving the quality and safety of care, and also reducing costs where possible. The Cost Savings Reinvestment Program (CSRP) is a program that benefits both the School of Medicine and Stanford Health Care by sharing some of the realized cost savings from physician-led improvements. Although these funds cannot be used as any form of salary support or compensation for physicians, they can be used at the discretion of the departments to fund the purchase of supplies, research, or continuing education.
