Priorities in value-based healthcare

Aug 16
CEDA welcomes Dr Stephen Duckett and industry stakeholders to discuss trends and priorities in value-based healthcare.

Dr Nigel Lyons, Deputy Secretary, Health Systems Strategy and Planning, NSW Ministry of Health
Dr Zoe Wainer, Head of Public Health and Medical Director, Bupa
Leanne Wells, Chief Executive Officer, Consumers Health Forum of Australia

Event overview

How do healthcare providers and governments improve patient outcomes while reducing cost in the context of an ageing population, increasing needs and expectations, and within a tighter fiscal environment?

Value-based healthcare seeks to improve health outcomes that matter to patients by changing how we receive and provide care and using insights to further inform expenditure, clinical models and the experience of receiving and giving care.

This event will examine:

  • Opportunities for a more sustainable healthcare system through value-based procurement, where purchasing decisions are based on overall value rather than cost alone;
  • Greater integration of care teams and better use of existing services and technologies;
  • Achieving scalability of existing initiatives to better address chronic health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes; and
  • International examples and best practice in delivering value-based healthcare.
