The AMC Vanguard Group Mission
In a world of increasingly limited resources, the AMC Vanguard Group’s mission is to formulate for each institution—and where appropriate, collectively—a set of tactical steps aimed at addressing key challenges in financing, delivery of care, and quality of care and addressing issues that impact the three-part academic medical center model of world-class teaching, innovative research and state-of-the-art clinical care.
In collaboration with Brookings, the AMC Vanguard Group will identify best practices among participating institutions, gather expertise and key insights from private and public stakeholders, and disseminate these findings using a variety of deliverables (ranging from co-branded white papers and research products to conferences and public presentations) that work to position academic medical centers as national leaders for delivering better care at lower cost.
