NOAHE Rounds III Session 2: Value-based health care – beyond theory
Value-based health care (VBHC) has gained momentum in recent years as a way in which we can improve health care and the sustainability of healthcare services. It has attracted controversy and debate with some commentators skeptical not only about the relevance of the theory to their own systems and the definition of value itself, but also whether it is truly feasible to implement. This presentation explains how the principles of VBHC are being applied in Wales, UK. There will be a focus on the rich and broad potential of patient-reported outcomes in enhancing care from the consultation room through to the planning of services and adoption of medical devices and medicines. The content may be of interest to patients, clinicians, health care managers, policy leads, and health economists.
Dr. Sally Lewis is a GP practicing in the Welsh valleys. She entered a career in medical management in 2011 and was appointed as Assistant Medical Director for value-based care in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in 2014. Still practicing as a GP, Sally is now National Clinical Lead for Value-Based and Prudent Healthcare in Wales, and Honorary Professor at Swansea School of Medicine. Her current interests include the utilization of value-based principles to allocate resources in publicly funded systems, patient-reported outcome data, and digital transformation.
