Aligning Outcomes and Spending: Canadian Experiences with Value-Based Healthcare

The aim of this Executive Brief is to provide a Canadian perspective on value-based healthcare (VBHC) and how these concepts are being applied across the country. It draws on a review of academic literature, surveys, and case studies. To inform the Brief, profiles of six Canadian initiatives that embody key elements of value-based healthcare, such as tracking and linking outcomes and costs, were developed.
