Health decision-makers and stakeholders worldwide are turning to value-based health care (or VBHC) to counteract the effects of rapidly increasing costs. VBHC seeks to improve long-term patient outcomes and make health systems more sustainable by putting patient interests at the core of health decision-making.
VBHC is beneficial to patients, providers, payers, suppliers, and society as a whole. Widespread adoption is in its early stages globally, but in Canada there has been little progress toward a value-oriented system. Attend the Summit of Value-Based Healthcare Canada and take part in the discussion about VBHC adoption in Canada.
This year’s summit will include the public launch of VBHC Canada, a Conference Board of Canada -led research and convening initiative that coordinates value-based health care activities across Canada.
The summit will also profile VBHC initiatives in Canada and around the world to highlight and discuss global strategies and adoptions. Many health providers in Canada and elsewhere are already testing VBHC. Examples include models of care that emphasize value-add, value-based approaches to delivering diabetes care and studies to improve patient outcomes and reduce per capita costs for specific diseases.
Understanding the key components of VBHC is vital to its successful implementation. Explore how your organization can integrate these components into your policies and procedures, and see how important they are to helping patients get the care they need while sustaining your organization over the long term.
Hear from experts and peers who have already implemented VBHC initiatives. The lessons they have learned will prompt new ways of thinking to help us deliver more value for patients, providers, payers, and other stakeholders.
