29. Value by Design: Identifying Promising Innovations in a Canadian Context

Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) is becoming a leading approach for organizing healthcare to transform health outcomes. It links dollars spent to outcomes that matter to patients, rather than to the volumes of services, processes or products that may or may not achieve those outcomes. There are many approaches that fall under the rubric of VBHC; and this session will profile three: outcomes-based contracting; bundled care models; and accountable care units. Participants will learn from healthcare leaders who have implemented these innovative models across the country, drawing on CFHI case profiles. The session will also seek to establish a common understanding of the goals of VBHC and introduce a set of assessment criteria for VBHC initiatives that can be used in decision-making and program development. Finally, it will allow participants to discuss their ideas and insights about opportunities to advance VBHC in Canada; including the various policy and system barriers and enablers for change
