Measuring what Matters: Leading Value -Based Health Care reform in Australia

Measuring what Matters: Leading Value -Based Health Care reform in Australia

An Event Series

The goal of health care is to create value by improving the outcomes that matter to people and communities for the costs of achieving those outcomes.

This series featured Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) pioneer Elizabeth Teisberg and the team from the Value Institute for Health & Care coming together with health care leaders from around Australia, to learn how to measure the outcomes that matter, including where to start, what measures to use, and how to begin using available tools for data collection.

Participants were introduced to Capability, Comfort, and Calm ™ framework, which simplifies and streamlines outcome measurement and evaluation. Then through facilitated discussion with leading government decision-makers in Australia, participants were supported to improve their understanding about the approaches to VBHC implementation being pursued in the Australian context, and to contribute to the policy reform to enable Value-Based Health Care in Australia.

Learning and policy objectives:

Leaders were supported to:

  • know where to start, what to measure and how to calculate associated costs.
  • understand and know how to use the tools available for outcome measurement, cost calculation and data allocation.
  • understand how clinical registries can be used in outcome measurement.
  • explain the Capability, Comfort and Calm framework for outcomes measurement.
  • discuss how VBHC measurement is similar to, and different from, approaches already used in Australia.
  • consider how VBHC outcomes measurement integrates with the work of government agencies and departments and make recommendations for action in the system.

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) is the independent peak membership body and advocate for the Australian healthcare system and national voice for universally accessible, high quality health care in Australia.
