Rising health care costs are driving governments, health care professionals, insurance companies, and other stakeholders to find new ways to maintain or increase quality of care while keeping costs as manageable as possible. Value-based procurement (VBP) of innovative medicines is a promising model to achieve this.

Webinar Highlights

VBP involves pricing pharmaceuticals based on health outcomes; combining drug procurement with other health interventions; and collaboration between pharmaceutical companies, payers, patients, and health care professionals.

The Conference Board of Canada examined five cases of value-based procurement in different jurisdictions and presents them as case studies. During this webinar, Darren Gresch discusses the four general lessons of the case studies.

These lessons are tied to:

  • The importance of patient health outcomes
  • Transparency and trust among stakeholders
  • Appropriate measures and metrics
  • VBP champions
