VALUE-BASED HEALTHCARE — A SOLUTION TO RUNAWAY COSTS

The ever-rising costs of global healthcare are not sustainable. We need to fully understand the problem, and then implement value-based healthcare, a solution that addresses costs and puts patients back in the center of care.

BUNDLED PAYMENTS — BRINGING VALUE-BASED HEALTHCARE TO LIFE

Robert S. Kaplan and Michael E. Porter, professors at Harvard Business School, argue that changing how we pay for healthcare is key to reform. They explain why a bundled payment model is superior to other methods. Paying providers a single bundled payment for all care delivered for a specific condition across the entire episode of care will improve outcomes and lower costs. 


Harvard Business Review published a summary of the case made by Porter and Kaplan in the webinar. This short article provides a good overview of why bundled payments make sense.
