The mission of the Johns Hopkins Systemwide High Value Care Committee is to improve patient care quality while eliminating wasteful practices across the health system. The committee is led by Redonda Miller, M.D., M.B.A., President of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Renee Demski, M.B.A., Vice President of Quality. Physician leads for this committee are Trushar Dungarani, Lenny Feldman, Pamela Johnson and Amit Pahwa.
Comprising representatives from all six hospitals (Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, Howard County General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital) and the Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, this committee aims to refine utilization of diagnostic testing, procedures and treatments.
Principle constructs include dissemination of successful high-value initiatives, identification of new opportunities for cost-conscious care and appropriation of resources to support local project implementation.
Submit an Idea or Successful Initiative
- Any individual in the health system with an idea for a new project to reduce wasteful practice is invited to submit their proposal through the high-value care suggestion box.
- Successful high value initiatives implemented at one of our hospitals or community practices can be submitted to the committee for consideration of system-wide dissemination.
