Forward thinking: Strategies to enable value-based healthcare in Canada

October 20, 2020  - 12:00 p.m. (ET)

Featured Speaker:
Arthi Chandran, Vice President, Health Economics & Outcomes Research, BD
Lena Cuthbertson, Provincial Executive Director, Office of Patient-Centred Measurement, British Columbia Ministry of Health
Ron Johnson; Vice President, Information Services & Rural Health (CIO) at Eastern Health

The unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted Canadian healthcare and heightened the need to bring innovations forward through different channels to demonstrate healthcare outcomes for the patient, hospitals, and health systems. Value-based healthcare (VBHC) is a patient-centred approach to health system design in which value to patients and health outcomes drive decisions about healthcare delivery. VBHC is still in the early stages of adoption in Canada and globally.

This session will explore models of value-based procurement implemented around the world, enablers to value-based healthcare (VBHC) adoption and highlight successful Canadian strategies. Drawing on global industry experience, BD will highlight key factors to enabling adoption and then highlight two innovative approaches to addressing some barriers to adoption in Canada.

Lessons learned will be showcased from the province of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Eastern Health about the importance of impacting policy development and involving industry in the journey to support the shift to a value-based procurement strategy from a more traditional procurement process to enable VBHC.

Collaboration between BD and British Columbia’s Patient-Centred Measurement program will demonstrate the benefits of a value-based agenda to address the challenges and problems faced by clinicians and patients related to peripheral vascular access, the most common invasive procedure performed in hospitals.

We anticipate these examples will inform and foster an ongoing dialogue about promising value-based healthcare initiatives in the Canadian context.
