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.

What’s new this year

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.

What will you walk away with?

Awareness

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.

Action

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.

We will kick off the summit with an invigorating talk on value-based health care (VBHC). This will set the stage for interactive learning about possibilities and practical options for implementing and scaling VBHC principles, from projects to transformational policy decisions.

9:15 a.m.

This summit marks the public launch of VBHC Canada, an action-oriented research initiative led by The Conference Board of Canada in collaboration with partners from the private, public, not-for-profit, and academic sectors.

We will outline VBHC Canada’s 2019–2022 strategic plan, including the priorities that will be addressed through timely and responsive investments, our progress to date on advancing VBHC in Canada, and opportunities for the next two years and beyond.

Thoughtful commentators will elaborate on the potential of this strategic program to span sectors and jurisdictions. Health providers will highlight system-level cost savings, innovative suppliers will showcase personalized approaches to care, and patients will demonstrate how VBHC approaches can improve health outcomes.
