Value-Based Healthcare Toolkit

January 2020

Value-based healthcare (VBHC) is about linking how much money is spent on healthcare programs or services over a patient’s journey to the outcomes that matter most to patients – rather than focusing primarily on the amount of services, or on specific processes or products.

VBHC aims to deliver services that are high value, scale back or drop those that are not, and/or re-balance the mix of services to improve the ratio of outcomes to overall costs. The goal is better outcomes at the same or lower total cost. It is a leading approach to improving patient and health system outcomes around the world.

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide information and guidance to those who are interested in learning about VBHC; those who are thinking about implementing it; and those who are ready to assess and improve their current VBHC initiatives.
