NSW HEALTH: LEADING BETTER VALUE CARE

NSW Health has released two case studies as part of the Leading Better Value Care (LBVC) program, part of NSW Health’s overarching strategy to accelerate the implementation of value based health care. Visit the NSW Health website to learn more about value based healthcare in NSW.

In November 2019, Wagga Wagga Base Hospital in MLHD was selected as a pilot site for the LBVC Bronchiolitis initiative. The pilot was designed to promote standardised treatment and escalation processes based on the NSW Paediatric Guidelines and avoid unnecessary and potentially harmful interventions.
