Time: 9th April 2020, 12:00pm – 01:00pm

The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to present the next in our ongoing series of free webinars. Join Kalin Scott Chief Innovation Officer at Helgerson Solutions Group (HSG) as she discusses the ‘Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP): Reforming the system to tie value and quality to funding.’ HSG is focused on helping companies, providers, payers and governments make the move to value in health care. They are committed to helping organisations improve health and social care outcomes and deliver care cost-effectively.

New York State has 25 groups across the state working on the New York State Department of Health’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. These are known as Performing Provider Systems (PPS) which are similar in function to Australian Primary Health Networks. The PPS is an alliance of clinical and social service providers focused on improving the quality of care and overall health for Medicaid and uninsured populations. The PPS work with chosen partners such as nurses, behavioural health providers, home health care agencies and a wide range of community-based clinical facilities, treatment centres, social services and community organisations, primary care physicians and medical practices.

In her webinar, Kalin will provide examples of innovative approaches that PPS have developed through the DSRIP program to deliver value based health care resulting in genuine improvements to patient outcomes.

Value-Based Health Care Conference
Time: 23rd March 2021, 9:00am – 26th March 2021, 4:00pm

The inaugural Value-Based Health Care Conference will be held in Perth in March 2021 to raise awareness of value-based healthcare (VBHC) and the work being done in this area across any/all disease types or conditions. VBHC focusses on delivering the outcomes that matter most to patients at the optimal cost. This approach is already transforming whole health services e.g. NHS Wales, the Dutch health system and has been adopted by some of the largest health care providers worldwide e.g. MD Anderson.

The aim of the conference will be to showcase and celebrate Australian value-based healthcare innovation, initiatives, implementation, research, and training from all areas of the health care system, with discussion on topics as diverse as cancer, stroke, dental health, and more. Focus will be given to practical applications of VBHC, rather than a theoretical approach, with innovative opportunities for involvement and discussions about how to put VBHC into practice and the conference will also feature the inaugural Australian Value-Based Health Care Awards.
