Transcript (slightly modified)

How are physicians being educated on the multiple value framework tools being developed?

I think that we are in the early days around the development and the application of value frameworks in a variety of different areas. For clinicians, to me, there are 2 important things. They ought to be part of the conversation around value. They ought to do it through their societies, but also as clinicians, even as individuals.

I think to have a good understanding of the ways that patients, payers, and policy makers think about value so that, again, they can contribute to that discussion. So I think that how they’re being educated now is pretty haphazard. I think this is continuing to grow in importance at academic meetings and at policy meetings, but the average clinician really hasn’t heard much about value frameworks yet. So we’ve a lot of work to do.
