V-BID Center Granted Nat’l Forum Public Policy Award
The National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention annually recognizes individuals and organizations who have made exceptional contributions to heart disease and stroke prevention by effecting policy change on a national, state, or local level.
The University of Michigan Center for Value-Based Insurace Design (V-BID Center) was recently honored with the 2017 National Forum Public Policy Award for “advancing value-based care and prevention through legislation and executive policy making. The Center’s development of policy proposals and persistence in educating policy makers has led to action by both Congress and the Administration, resulting in more people benefiting from high-value health care.”
John Clymer, Executive Director of the National Forum, presented the award to V-BID Center Director, A. Mark Fendrick, MD, in Washington, DC, last week. Previous recipients include Partnership for Prevention, Claudia Louis of the American Heart Association, and Senator Tom Harkin.
