The Student High Value Care Initiative is a student-led organization founded in 2015, dedicated to improving value and decreasing cost of care for patients. Unnecessary testing and treatment can often cause harm, both physical and financial. Student High Value Care Initiative members form collaborative teams and tasked with identifying points of low value care and implement novel interventions to decrease overuse in the hospital. Institutional, data, curricular support and mentorship are provided for student teams. Students work closely with Dr. Hyung (Harry) Cho (Director of Quality, Safety, and Value for Hospital Medicine, Chair of High Value Care Committee), Dr. Mona Krouss and other faculty from the Mount Sinai Hospital High Value Care Committee.
