The Value-Based Healthcare and Procurement Journey: How Can We Accelerate Adoption for Better Patient Outcomes and Sustainability?
Several challenges affect the transformation to and adoption of value-based healthcare (VBHC) and procurement. Despite the high interest, investment and training that have occurred, widespread VBHC adoption has been hampered by a limited understanding of how: outcomes and sustainability will be measured, budgets are affected and change will be effectively introduced and managed.
In order for innovations to be more rapidly adopted, they must align with the healthcare system to support better patient outcomes. As with most new approaches, there can often be over- and/or under-estimation of some of the adoption challenges. The factors, enablers and approaches that can help accelerate the adoption of initiatives (including VBHC and procurement) are identified.
