The Value-Based Innovation Framework: A New Way of Doing Business in Ontario

William will discuss the role of the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist (OCHIS) in supporting the shift to value-based health care, a key enabler of health innovation adoption and diffusion. He will provide an overview of the value-based innovation framework, which encompasses all activities and services under the purview of OCHIS, helping the organization to achieve the objectives of improving patient outcomes, optimizing impact of investment in health innovation, and scaling health innovation companies. He will specifically address the role OCHIS plays in empowering demand-drivers to innovation, increasing the receptor capacity of health service providers and the system, generating evidence and facilitating evaluation that accelerates the development and validation of health innovation, and empowering innovators to use Ontario as a reference customer that can both support growth and scale-up of their businesses. He will also speak on OCHIS' signature program the Value-Based Innovation Program, providing a new way for our health system to procure and adopt innovative technologies and processes that ensure greater value for Ontarians.

International Perspective from Denmark

Skype Video Conference—Lars Dahl Allerup, Region Hovedstaden, Denmark

During this session, Lars will join via skype video to discuss emerging models in Denmark. These models demonstrate how to procure for value, along with countries shift to a true value based health care model. Denmark represents a national progressive approach that, takes into account, the need for better value from the system; from improved patient outcomes, to system sustainability and economic development. The country is moving beyond simplistic risk-sharing procurement agreements to those that truly seek to understand the full bundle of value that can be achieved. Moving toward a value-based approach like this requires political will, effective governance and incentives for the system, robust and meaningful digital health information, and effective processes for innovation procurement, adoption and dissemination.

Industry Panel: Opportunities for Driving Toward Value in Procurement

The industry leaders will explore how procurement is an effective enabler of innovation and value based health care, driving patient outcomes and economic development at the same time. They will identify ways that industry can work with other stakeholders in effective win-win partnerships on new models of health care procurement and delivery.

The speakers will explore how to define value, the role of procurement from varying perspectives, and new models of engagement they are seeing that drive value. Specifically, the speakers will discuss how designing the system from a value-based perspective drives sustainability, quality, and improved patient outcomes, all the while delivering economic benefits.

Moving to Value Based Health Care: Emerging Models of Procurement and Delivery: Bundled Payments and Integrated Care Pathways

During this session, we will explore how emerging procurement methodologies like integrated care pathways and bundled payment models help achieve the merits of value based health care, improving patient outcomes while at the same time improving sustainability. In fact, many argue that bundled payment models and integrated care pathways are a necessity to truly drive value based health care. These models go beyond risk sharing agreements to understand the full cycle of care and associated costs that impact patient outcomes.
