Achieving value-based healthcare involves a paradigm shift from the bureaucracy-based status quo, to population-based, personalised healthcare.
Such a shift requires a focus on triple value, systems, and culture. Better Value Healthcare can help you achieve this paradigm shift through its training and organisational development offerings.
Population and Personalised Paradigm
|The aim is effectiveness, quality, and safety outcomes||The aim is triple value and greater equity, through:
|Good service for known patients||Personalised service for all the people affected in the population|
|Improvement through competition||Improvement through collaborative systems and networks, with patients and carers as equal partners|
|Transformation attempted by reorganisation and more money||Transformation by culture change and digital knowledge services|
|Clinicians act as the users of their institutions’ resources||Clinicians feel they are the stewards of the population’s resources.|
To achieve this paradigm, we need to engage in three new activities:
- Ensuring that every individual receives high personal value by providing people with full information about the risks and benefits of the intervention on offer
- Shifting resources from budgets for populations in which there is evidence of overuse or lower value, to budgets for populations in which there is evidence of underuse and inequity
- Develop population based systems that: address the needs of all the people in need; implement high value innovation funded by reduced spending on lower value intervention; increase rates of higher value intervention funded by reduced spending on lower value intervention
This process will require: a change in culture, training in new skills and concepts, and the development of a new type of organisation – population based systems.
