Value-Based Healthcare Starts With Improving Outcomes


Tue Mar 29 13:00:23 CDT 2016

The move toward value-based healthcare is gradually restructuring healthcare to better reward providers and healthcare delivery systems that can provide care in ways that improve clinical outcomes while lowering overall costs.


As an acknowledgement of this shift in healthcare, Medtronic recently sponsored the Insight Center, hosted by New England Journal of Medicine and Harvard Business Review. 2015's Insight Center was  “Measuring Costs and Outcomes in Healthcare.” Medtronic is proud to be participating as both a sponsor and as a keen stakeholder in this discussion.


We define value-based healthcare as an effort to develop and deploy products, services and integrated solutions that improve patient outcomes per dollar spent in the healthcare system by improving the quality of care and/or reducing the associated expense. Most importantly, the value derived from the quality of care isn’t determined at a specific point in time that focuses on transactional value. Instead, value is measured holistically over a longer time horizon and in ways that are meaningful to the patient. Learn more about our point of view on costs and outcomes.
