It was a pleasure to host Dr Chintan Maru, Director at the Global Development Incubator and Executive Director of Leapfrog to Value, as guest presenter for our latest live webinar.
Here are the details of the session and the recording is available below:
Leapfrog to Value: How low- and middle-income countries can embrace value-based care on the path to universal health coverage.
Health systems around the world suffer from a crisis of distrust; patients question the quality of government clinics, and newspapers expose private hospitals for peddling unnecessary procedures. These are symptoms of volume-based health systems that focus on the quantity of care delivered rather than quality or outcomes. Many countries are accelerating down this path. Hospital construction surpasses growth of primary care infrastructure. New insurance schemes expand access to inpatient treatment, without equivalent expansion of community-based prevention. These approaches create lasting structural flaws which increase costs without delivering desired results. As countries commit to universal health coverage, there is a narrow window to chart a different trajectory toward the common goal of achieving the best health outcomes for the resources invested.
- Characterize the challenge of volume-based health systems.
- Introduce the value-based care framework.
- Point to practical ways to incorporate value-based care principles into current work.
This webinar is intended for healthcare providers, payers, and policymakers in all low and middle income countries.
