Value Based Healthcare Regional (Online) Community Conversation

Ref: UWA12525

Date: 12 May 2021 @ 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM

In partnership with the Continuous Improvement in Care - Cancer (CIC Cancer) and HBF, the CCIProgram will be supporting two Community Conversations that will feed important information into the 2021 Value Based Healthcare Conference.

The goal of value-based healthcare is to improve patient health outcomes while reducing the overall cost of healthcare. Globally it is gaining momentum and transforming clinical practice, service delivery, payment, and policy to achieve the best outcomes for patients.

The Conversations will provide an opportunity for consumers and community members to discuss key factors related to value based healthcare, its potential impact on health consumers and what is most important to them. This information will provide an important summary of consumer priorities that will feed into the inaugural Value Based Healthcare Conference, held 27th - 28th May.

The aim of the conference will be to showcase and celebrate value-based healthcare (VBHC) innovation, initiatives, implementation, research, and training from all areas of the health care system, with discussion on topics as diverse as cancer, stroke, dental health, and more. A Community Conversation is the starting event of the Conference, the first in a series of three discussion forums, which will allow consumers to provide valuable input to the concept of value-based healthcare implementation.

The recommendations arising from the consumer session will feed into the health professional focussed sessions on VBHC in primary care and the wider health care sector.
