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.
The call for abstracts will be released in early 2020 and further information can be found on the conference website .
Applications for sponsorship are open now.VBHC Conference Sponsorship Prospectus
