Value can be a subjective term so, to help frame it, please consider the following characteristics as those that would contribute to a valuable standard:
Has a strong evidence-base
Has a strong relationship to patient outcomes/clinical care
Supports a health care organization’s achievement of patient safety and quality of care
Has benefits that outweigh the costs
Supports a health care priority that impacts quality and safety
