International Symposium October 2017

Turning value theory into practice – an international perspective

04 October 2017

Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, London

*All presentations are available to download at the bottom of the page

Our first International symposium held in October 2016 was a great success with seven different countries providing a top-level view of their approach to costing and value-based healthcare. 

This year we will continue with the theme of delivering value-based healthcare, but explore more of the operational level in international systems, looking practically at ‘Turning value theory into practice – an international perspective.’  Delegates will hear from six different countries on how they are practically embedding value-based healthcare at both the individual and population level:

  • Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden
  • New South Wales Health, Australia
  • Santeon, The Netherlands
  • CIUSS West Central Montreal, Canada
  • Gesundes Kinzigtal, Germany
  • Healthcare Costing for Value Institute value challenge pilot, UK

Senior finance professionals and clinical colleagues from Institute member organisations*, as well as international delegates, are all welcome to attend the symposium.

Achieving the best value from every pound spent on healthcare has always been a core focus of the UK National Health Service. Getting the most from any healthcare budget must focus on managing the limited resources that are available more effectively so that we can deliver the best possible outcomes for patients. To state this is simple, but the enormity of the challenge itself is very real for anyone working in healthcare today.  The Institute provides a platform for support and ideas exchange with a focus on applying the theory of value-based healthcare in practice and maximising the value of patient-level costing information. 

*1 free senior finance place and 1 free clinical place per member organisation.  Additional places for member organisations are available for a small fee.  If you would like to check if your organisation is a member or if you are interested in joining the Institute, please contact
