Value Based Health Care Workshop

Date: 20 May 2021 9:30am to 25 May 2021 01:30pm

Pre-conference Workshop  - Measuring Outcomes that Matter

Join the Value Institute for Health & Care at the University of Texas at Austin for a virtual workshop on measuring health outcomes that matter to individuals and families. Facilitated by internationally renowned Professors Elizabeth Teisberg, Scott Wallace, Alice Andrews, and Kathy Carberry from the Value Institute for Health and Care at the University of Texas at Austin, this intensive workshop will provide an in-depth look at a key element of value-based health care - how to measure health outcomes of care.

This program is designed to build the skills and knowledge of health services leaders, managers, clinicians, and patients to successfully lead change and deliver high-value health care in Australia, with an interactive, virtual format that combines case discussions of successful high-value care models with overview presentations and implementation frameworks that participants can readily deploy. The workshop consists of four, half-day virtual sessions designed to be interactive and build connections among participants.  

The first two days will explore why value-based health care is essential and how to begin creating and implementing high-value care. Participants will learn about organising care around medically-relevant patient segments, how to identify health outcomes that matter to these individuals and families, and why understanding the actual cost of care delivery is essential strategic decision-making. These sessions will conclude with a case study about public oral health care in Victoria and the importance of communication for mobilising culture change.

The last two days will move deeper into the skills required to measure health outcomes. These sessions will stress implementation of the principles of outcomes measurement, including where to start, what measures to use, and how to map a care path. Participants will get to know the Capability, Comfort, and Calm framework, which simplifies and streamlines outcome measurement and evaluation. They will also discuss overcoming barriers to measurement, as well as how to support a learning culture that enables continuous care delivery improvement.
