The concept of value-based healthcare is increasingly a driving force in health systems across the world. The impact of the financial crisis of 2008 on ever-growing healthcare costs has healthcare organizations seeking innovative solutions to improve performance, control costs, and most importantly to produce value for patients and healthcare professionals. Different schemes are proposed and applied to transform healthcare organizations from traditional schemes, into high quality and cost-effective healthcare operations. The implementation of new value-based strategies is complicated by many factors such as incentives – intended or unintended – as well as having to consider the value chain and continuity of health care to effectively measure outcomes of healthcare interventions.
Health Management educational programs have been emerging to identify the key competencies needed to meet these challenges. We have identified the most significant competencies that affect the implementation of value-based strategies, and training methodologies to achieve related learning outcomes.
The University of Central Florida and the Gulf Medical University have established a partnership to collaborate developing learning technologies, materials and methodologies to increase the speed of diffusion and the accessibility of professional development tools.
After this session the participants will be able to:
- Understand key perspectives on value-based strategies in healthcare
- Examine key competencies required to lead value-based healthcare organizations
- Determine the best approaches to prepare healthcare teams for a change to value-based performance.
