Value-Based Healthcare Canada
Building a Path to Patient-Centred Health Systems
Canada’s healthcare systems are under exceptional stress. We must improve patient care and outcomes, cost transparency, and capacity to meet current needs and serve future generations. Value-based healthcare (VBHC) is an international framework that can help achieve this by focusing on self-reported outcomes and quality of life.
Value-Based Healthcare Canada leads evidence-based research to support implementation and integration of VBHC in Canada.
