The goal of health care is to create value by improving the outcomes that matter

to people and communities for the costs of achieving those outcomes. Join Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) pioneer Elizabeth Teisberg and the team from the Value Institute for Health & Care. Together with health care leaders from around Australia, learn to measure the outcomes that matter, including where to start, what measures to use, and how to begin using available tools for data collection.

Participants will get to know the Capability, Comfort, and Calmtm framework, which simplifies and streamlines outcome measurement and evaluation. Then, through facilitated discussion with leading government decision-makers in Australia, improve your understanding about the approaches to VBHC implementation being pursued in the Australian context, and contribute to the policy reform required to enable Value-Based Health Care in Australia.


By the end of this event series, health leaders should:

  • know where to start, what to measure and how to calculate associated costs.
  • understand and know how to use the tools available for outcome measurement, cost calculation and data allocation.
  • understand how clinical registries can be used in outcome measurement.
  • explain the Capability, Comfort and Calm framework for outcomes measurement.
  • discuss how VBHC measurement is similar to, and different from, approaches already used in Australia.
  • consider how VBHC outcomes measurement integrates with the work of government agencies and departments and make recommendations for action in the system.
