HEALTH CARE TRANSFORMATION

LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

The Health Care Transformation Leadership Program is a collaboration program between the Australian Centre for Value-Based Healthcare, the Australian National University and the Value Institute for Health & Care at the University of Texas in Austin. This is the first time an education program focused on value-based health care has been offered in Australia.

This program involves four different learning opportunities including online tutorials, a two-day workshop, facilitated learning sets and tailored mentoring programs. This program will build skills and knowledge of health services leaders, managers, clinicians and patients to successfully lead change and deliver high-value health care in Australia. It will do this by enabling participants to distinguish between value-creation and value-division in healthcare, identify medically-relevant segments of patients and describe delivery solutions to meet their needs, discuss strategic imperative for measuring health outcomes and costs and describe why communications and relationship-building are required to deliver high-value care at a scale.

Webinar title: Implementing high-value health care
Date: July 23rd, 9:00 am – 10:30 am (dates to be confirmed)

Information: The purpose of health care is to improve the health outcomes of the person and family being served. This session shows an example of a team that improves outcomes by changing their care and its measurement of patients’ results. You will explore the power of shared aspirations to provide caring, relationship-centred services that achieve better results for patients and families, and thus high value—better outcomes for the money spent.
• Define value creation in health care services
• Examine how health care delivery affects health
• Explore how strategy, culture, and measurement are used together to support health system change

Webinar title: Creating value for individuals and families
Date: August 20th, 9:00 am – 10:30am
Information: Health care value is created when an individual’s health outcomes improve. This session analyses an example of team-based care that offers a combination of medical and social services to create a more holistic solution, and through its health successes drives down overall costs of care. You will explore the importance of understanding both explicit and unarticulated needs to develop high-value solutions for care and in life outside of clinical settings.

• Examine the use of Experience Group™ methodology to identify patients’ shared needs

Webinar title: Measuring what matters
Date: September 24th, 9:00 am – 10:30am
Information: Measurement focuses on managerial attention, so it is critical to measure what matters most to patients and clinicians. This session will look at an example where measurement enabled significant improvement for patients as well as support for the professionalism of clinicians. You will learn the Capability, Comfort, and Calm Framework™ to measure outcomes that matter to patients and build solutions that accelerate this change.

• Identify how to start an outcome measurement program

Webinar title: Evaluating costs for strategic decision-making
Date: October 22nd, 9:00 am – 10:30am
Information: Successful health care transformation depends on financial sustainability. This session will look at the impact of different approaches and assumptions about measuring costs and how these may change managerial decisions or priorities. You will explore the relationship between care delivery and cost, and how to use this information for strategic decision-making.
• Compare costing at the individual patient level to other methods for attributing costs.
• Evaluate the benefits of costing at the individual patient level.

Webinar title: Leading teams towards transformation
Date: December 3rd, 9:00 am – 10:30am
