Healthcare Value session

Although tremendous progress has been made over the last 40 years, health services continue to be challenged by increasing need and demand without the provision of additional resource. These challenges include variation in access, quality, cost and outcomes.

To maintain health services globally, and continue improving population health, there is an urgent need to transform health services to deliver triple value:

Allocative value: allocate resources to different groups equitably and in a way that maximises value for the whole population.

Technical value: improve the quality and safety of healthcare to increase the value derived from resources allocated to particular services.

Personalised value: base decisions on the best current evidence, careful assessment of an individual’s clinical condition and an individual’s values.
