Value-Based Healthcare

Value-Based Healthcare Canada (VBHC Canada) is a research centre dedicated to building an evidence-base for the systematic implementation and integration of Value Based Health Care (VBHC) approaches across Canada. 

It is an independent, pan-Canadian initiative launched by the Conference Board of Canada.  We work with key stakeholders from private, public, not-for-profit, healthcare delivery, and academic sectors, to tackle the daunting problem of how to improve patient care and outcomes while containing healthcare costs.

VBHC Canada endeavors to be the Canadian champion for the VBHC movement, which means being the driver for applied research and stakeholder connections in support of advancing VBHC approaches and system level impact across Canada’s health systems.  

The Centre serves as Canada’s liaison with international organizations and initiatives, including the World Economic Forum’s Global Coalition for Value in Healthcare, the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), and others.

About Value-Based Healthcare 

Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) is an international movement that seeks to achieve the best outcomes for patients at the most reasonable cost by placing self-reported health and quality of life at the center of healthcare decision-making. It informs a framework for restructuring healthcare systems, with the goal of optimizing value to patients and systems.
