Value-Based Healthcare Starts With Improving Outcomes

Better Value Begins with Better Outcomes

The move towards 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 is sponsoring the online Insight Center hosted by the New England Journal of Medicine and Harvard Business Review. This year’s Insight Center is “Measuring Costs and Outcomes in Healthcare”. Medtronic is proud to be participating as both a sponsor and as a keen stakeholder in this discussion.

At Medtronic, 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.

Join the conversation at the Insight Center and register for the upcoming webinars.

Aligning Value POV

Governments, insurers, and hospital systems are struggling to address unmet healthcare needs without impeding economic growth or further increasing healthcare costs. Many of these issues can be addressed by aligning value among the stakeholders in the system.
