Value Based Health Care

”Health care historically has been a very siloed field that’s organized around medical specialties – urology, cardiac surgery, and so forth – and around the supply of these specialty services. The patient is the ping-pong ball that moves from service to service” – Prof. Michael E. Porter, MD

Why do you need value in health care?

Professionals in healthcare face many challenges today. We believe that Value Based Health Care (VBHC) is the answer to meeting those challenges. It is a framework for restructuring health care systems around the globe with the overarching goal of value for patients through the full cycle of care.
