What is Value-Based Healthcare and How Can We Support Our Clients?
At NHG, we employ VBHC approach in solving real-life questions and challenges that our customers encounter. NHG is experienced in implementing VBHC principles and methods in multiple settings, ranging from creating VBHC strategy to implementing ICHOM Standard Sets in individual hospitals and building national level benchmarking.
“At NHG, we have been passionately working on value-based healthcare (VBHC) projects for a long time and learned that there is plenty of outcome data already available which is simply not used. A great starting point on path towards value-based healthcare is to start using this already available outcomes data to improve patient outcomes.” – Vesa Komssi, Executive Vice President at NHG.
To employ VBHC in practice, we often need to collect outcome and cost data, supported by the key process metrics, to provide meaningful information at all levels from patients to clinicians, hospital management, payers and health care systems.
Our offering includes for example:
- VBHC strategy
- Integrated patient pathways
- Outcome metrics definition
- Data collection
- Data visualization and BI dashboards
- Continuous improvement
