DEFINING VALUE

Definitions of value in health care draw on the seminal work of Porter and Teisberg, as the health outcomes that matter to patients relative to the resources or costs required, over a full cycle of care. Around the world, definitions have been expanded to recognise, for example, technical, allocative and societal value as well.
