Healthcare reform is trending across the globe. Many countries and jurisdictions are moving to a value-based health care system, one where generating increased value for patients is the main goal. At its core, value-based health care is all about obtaining better health outcomes per dollar spent. And to maximize this value for patients, leading organizations are moving towards a value-based procurement system, one that ensures lower costs and more direct care for each individual. But how does a value-based procurement system differ from traditional models? And could it allow your organization to more effectively provide care?

Join Dr. Gabriela Prada as she explores value-based procurement, and explains how the model represents a shift from traditional procurement approaches that focused on cost-containment, and instead seeks value beyond cost minimization. Value-based procurement is mandatory within the European Union and it is being encouraged by the Ontario Government. Other provinces in Canada are also following this trend. Don’t miss this chance to hear why this is quickly becoming the model of choice, and how your organization could benefit by adopting this strategy.

Webinar Highlights
