Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Venue: Room P-419, Level 4, P Block – Science and Engineering Centre, QUT
Date: 08 October 2018 9:00am to 09 October 2018 05:00pm

Join Professor Elizabeth Teisberg, co-author of Redefining Health Care, and her colleagues Profs. Scott Wallace and Alice Andrews for this two-day, highly-interactive workshop on implementing value-based health care.  The workshop curriculum will reflect the latest innovations studied at the Value Institute for Health and Care at the Dell Medical School in Austin, Texas.

Places for this workshop are strictly limited and registration is exclusively available only to delegates of the World Hospital Congress. If you have not yet registered for the Congress, register here - please note registration for this workshop does not include registration for the World Hospital Congress.

Participants in the workshop will learn why value-based health care is essential and how to begin creating and implementing high-value care.  The workshop format combines case discussions of successful high-value care models with overview presentations and implementation frameworks that participants can readily deploy.  Participants will explore implementation cases from Europe and the United States, including the musculoskeletal care center at the new University of Texas Dell Medical School. Participants will learn about organizing care around medically-relevant patient segments, identifying opportunities to improve current services, measuring meaningful outcomes, accelerating learning in clinical teams, and succeeding with new payment models.

If you are making the transition from volume-to-value, we hope you will join us.
