Detailed information about this course:


Faculty Lead: Prof. Jan Hazelzet, MD PhD

Overall aim: To provide participants with an overview of all aspects of value-based-health care (VBHC) as theorised by Prof Michael Porter, Harvard Business School, and Prof. Elizabeth Teisberg, Value Institute for Health and Care. Where value is defined as the outcomes achieved for patients relative to costs. This means measuring provider and patient reported outcomes and costs in a standardized way. But there is more than this. Patient engagement, more specific shared decision making and co-creation, team collaboration and continuous improvement of the care path used are as important. This will be illustrated with clinical examples of multiple organizations. The program consists of 15 lectures and will deal with all the aspects of value based healthcare.

Halfway the week, on Wednesday August 21, before the start of the course, a network lunch will be organised for all VBHC course participants. Details will be provided to course participants in August.

CME accreditation for this course is pending.
