Governmental bodies have a responsibility to ensure general accessibility and affordability of highly qualitative healthcare for its citizens. This is becoming increasingly challenging, as populations age and the prevalence of chronic illnesses grows and science progresses. Because of this, healthcare demand increases and expenditure is expected to rise to 30% of GDP by 2030.
How can you, as a government, contain healthcare cost, without compromising its quality and accessibility?
Value-based healthcare is the optimal and sustainable balance between high quality of care, high quality of life and manageable costs. This balance can be optimised when all stakeholders make well-informed decisions that drive value. But that is not all.
Even when consumers, providers, payers, life science & research institutes have access to valid, trustworthy and reliable information, they can only make decisions within the framework of the healthcare system in which they operate.
Governments can make or break value-based healthcare by shaping policies. Policies that align stakeholder interests and incentives, allow for outcome or population based financing, and shift accountability from individual healthcare organisations towards healthcare networks along patient journeys.
In order to shape these policies, and to monitor accessibility and quality of healthcare, information is needed. We have extensive experience in combining quality registries, patient reported outcome measures and costing benchmarks, that provide insightful information for this purpose. This includes thorough transparency autorisation models.
