Deeble Issues Brief No. 32: Re-orienting funding from volume to value in public dental services

Dr Shalika Hegde

Deeble Issues Brief No. 32: focusses on funding reforms that will be required to achieve value‑based health care for public dental health in Australia. Using Dental Health Service Victoria’s learnings from a value-based health care implementation and funding model reform, this Issues Brief draws on local and international examples that provide the rationale and evidence for funding reforms that maximise value and outcomes for patients, funders and the health system.
