MEASURING OUTCOMES AND
COSTS

The concept of value should not be thought of as a simple equation. The health outcomes that matter to patients are multidimensional, including factors much broader than traditional clinical indicators. The resources or costs must reflect the actual costs of the care delivered to a patient over a full cycle of care.

The routine collection, sharing and analysis of outcomes and cost data and other relevant information will be enabled by an integrated health information infrastructure, enabling both patient and population-level health information. This includes not only the hardware and software of health informatics systems, but also the standards governing such systems and organisational capabilities to use them effectively.
