The concept of ‘value’ in healthcare – maximising the outcomes which matter to people at the lowest possible cost – is increasingly seen as a key lever for supporting the delivery of high quality sustainable healthcare. The challenge is how to do this in practice – both at an organisational and system level.
It is hard to argue against the theory of value-based healthcare – it needs to become the focus for clinicians and finance alike as they look to deliver high-quality sustainable healthcare services. But how do you translate the theory of value into practice? This is what the Institute has been exploring with its partners over the past few years.
We support our partners to implement and improve patient-level costing and deliver value-based healthcare through our four key themes: confident costing, translating data, driving value and innovation.
