Site Spotlight - Value Based Health Care: Setting the scene for Australia

Value Based Health Care: Setting the scene for Australia

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) has recently launched the Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care.
The Centre’s first paper discusses Australia’s alignment with a value-based approach and identifies enablers that it sees as part of a coordinated national strategy.

"Value based health care: setting the scene for Australia by AHHA Policy Director Kylie Woolcock recommends a national, cross-sector strategy for value-based health care in Australia supported by: access to relevant and up-to-date data; evidence for value-based health care in the Australian context; a health workforce strategy supporting models of care that embrace a value-based approach; and funding systems that incentivise value."
