VBHC seeks to improve long-term patient outcomes and make health systems more sustainable by putting patient interests at the core of health decision-making.

Publicly accessible information and data are core tenants of value-based healthcare (VBHC) to help build transparent health systems. To that end, VBHC Canada developed an interactive data repository that highlights innovative VBHC activity across the country.
