Get results. Put patients first.
Help make our healthcare system more sustainable for all.

To fight rapidly increasing costs, health decision-makers and stakeholders worldwide are turning to value-based healthcare (VBHC). VBHC is a system that seeks to improve long-term patient results by paying providers according to patient health outcomes, not the number or variety of services provided.

Some countries and regions are further along in adopting value-based healthcare than others. Attend the second annual summit of VBHC Canada to find out who the leaders are in putting patient interests at the core of health decision-making. And find out how you can help sustain your organization over the long term while giving patients the full-cycle care they need.

We have created an exciting summit, featuring a national and global complement of speakers and health leaders. During our full-day event, they will share their VBHC journey success stories, perspectives, and valuable insights on how to move the needle on VBHC adoption in Canada.

What’s new this year

This year’s summit will include the public launch of VBHC Canada, a Conference Board of Canada-led initiative that coordinates value-based healthcare activities across Canada.

The summit will also profile VBHC initiatives in Canada and around the world to highlight and discuss global strategies and adoptions.

Join us to:

  • See what success looks like from those who have already successfully implemented VBHC programs worldwide
  • Examine models of care that bring out the best for our patients and reduce per capita costs
  • Hear front-line perspectives of Canadian patients and providers
  • Take an active part in designing a five-year roadmap to VBHC success in Canada

Join us on April 23, 2020 for a groundbreaking summit of healthcare ideas.
Help deliver more value for patients, for providers, and for Canada. Register today.

This summit’s keynote will draw together experiences and lessons learned from value-based healthcare efforts across several jurisdictions. It will help you imagine VBHC’s possibilities and set the stage for the day’s sessions—a rich series of talks and panels on measurement, collaboration, and procurement—that focus on how a value-based system can be realized in Canada. VBHC is possible. Get motivated to join our global VBHC community on the journey to make it happen.

9:15 a.m.

Find out what we’ve been up to. Since its launch in May 2019, our VBHC Canada team has been acting on its three strategic objectives: to lead and coordinate capacity-building efforts; to develop and document VBHC implementation processes through demonstration projects; and to produce and synthesize evidence to guide policy decisions and systems change.

VBHC Canada is a research initiative led by The Conference Board of Canada in collaboration with partners from the private, public, not-for-profit, and academic sectors. Hear about our progress to date, what we’ve learned from our strategic activities, and our plans for the coming year.

Some of the best examples of measuring, reporting, and rewarding value come from countries with highly developed systems of disease registries, as well as outcome-based reimbursement for specialized care. And the backbone of these systems comes from access to accurate and comprehensive data.

Analyzing health data is the best way for decision- and policy-makers to measure how well treatments are working, identify where both care and processes can be improved, and ultimately make value-based reimbursement models work.

    During this session, you will:
  • see what real-life success looks like for the VBHC model;
  • hear what gaps and opportunities for data collection exist for Canada on both a national and provincial level;
  • explore with our panel what it will take for Canada to measure, report, and reward value in five-plus years by designing a roadmap to success.

The most successful examples of VBHC in systems outside our own have been done gradually, and after careful consultation with health providers, patients, and other key stakeholders such as insurers. In contrast, more radical attempts at healthcare reform made without the buy-in of these groups have been met with criticism, which has undermined support for them.

Achieving buy-in from both the makers and beneficiaries of healthcare policies is a critical enabler of VBHC. This session will explore various stakeholder perspectives on the VBHC model—what it takes to secure involvement, where to start, and how we can work together to get there.

In VBHC models, procuring for outcomes and solutions is vital. Some international jurisdictions—and European countries in particular—are shifting their procurement philosophy and practices away from price-based models and toward value-based ones. What can Canada learn from their examples?

Get a global briefing on value-based procurement during this world café. Find out how VBHC squares with the practicalities and processes of procurement, including through risk-sharing methods, remote monitoring, and implementing health outcomes criteria into payment systems.

What will it take to achieve VBHC? How do we create system-level change while allowing for local flexibility? How do we ensure that equity, diversity, and inclusion will be part of this evolution?

Our closing keynote will show how, with collaboration and knowledge-sharing, Canada’s providers, suppliers, patients, and stakeholders can help realize a truly VBHC-driven system—in the next five years, ten years, and beyond. You’ll leave this session with a clear view of the future of VBHC in Canada.
