Optional Pre-Conference Workshop

Understanding and Applying Value-Based Procurement Within Today's Health Systems

Monday May 29 2017 • The Westin Bayshore Vancouver • Vancouver, BC


Procurement decisions in Canada have traditionally been based on lowest cost.

The recent shift to value-based health care demands a shift to value-based procurement. This shift requires consideration of factors beyond price (including health outcomes, broader societal benefits, as well as benefits for clinicians) to make decisions on the products and services that bring the best value for money for health care systems.

Governments in Canada are understanding that this shift is necessary to support health care sustainability efforts and are setting expectations for change.

Competitive Dialogue is a framework that supports the practice of value-based procurement. It is a form of negotiation that allows for flexibility in cases where other procedures are not likely to lead to satisfactory procurement outcomes. Competitive Dialogue has been recognized in the latest European Union directives from 2014 as an opportunity to advance value-based procurement.

Why you should attend

In this full-day workshop, you will learn from national and international leaders in value-based procurement practices and will have the opportunity to:

  • explore the role of value-based procurement within value-based health care systems
  • gain insight into the value and application of competitive dialogue
  • gain an understanding of the compatibility of competitive dialogue with the legal framework in Canada and learn strategies for mitigating any potential risks
  • learn about a framework and a tool to support the practice of value-based procurement
  • work through value-based procurement case studies to understand the processes and practices involved, lessons learned, and key success factors
