BRINGING VALUE-BASED HEALTHCARE TO LIFE

Healthcare is changing — more patient driven, more value emphasis. At Medtronic, we are championing a transition to value-based healthcare, which means developing and deploying products, services, and integrated solutions that improve care and reduce costs. We’re working with leading healthcare thinkers and practitioners such as Harvard Business Review. Together, we’re creating conversations and initiating collaboration to support value-based healthcare around the world.

Our recent efforts with Harvard Business Review include:

HBR Webinar Series

Each webinar features global healthcare experts discussing key information and promising approaches to address pressing issues in healthcare. A recent example is The Case for Bundled Payments in Health Care featuring Robert S. Kaplan and Michael E. Porter.

HBR Insight Center articles

These articles focus on pivotal topics relating to value-based healthcare. HBR features new ideas and perspectives from thought leaders from around the world to inform and reflect on healthcare theories, research, and pilot programs.


Measuring Health Care Costs and Outcomes is Key to Improving Value

Historically, volume — meaning the number of patient visits, tests, and procedures – has driven health care reimbursement. This model is unsustainable in today’s world and is undergoing transition from a volume-based system to one that rewards better patient outcomes at lower costs. The transition depends on new ways to evaluate costs and outcomes. Recently, Medtronic and Harvard Business Review hosted a forum where health care leaders discussed innovations, best practices, and key issues related to the transition. Learn about their insights that are helping to pave the way.


FOCUS ON VALUE-BASED HEALTHCARE INCREASES WORLDWIDE

The complex and varied ways healthcare is delivered and paid for has made it difficult to get a true sense of how to achieve better outcomes at a lower cost. How can we collectively find solutions that will guide the industry toward value-based care? Medtronic sponsored an event with Harvard Business Review to bring together top healthcare leaders to explore this important topic. The conversation included discussions on:

  • Defining and measuring outcomes
  • Determining accurate costs
  • Identifying key drivers of change
