Value-Based Health Care consistently features among the topics of most interest to iFHP members. Across the globe the pressures of changing demographics, the rise of complex conditions and advances in expensive therapies all create a pressing need for more understanding of the potential of VBHC.

iFHP’s inaugural VBHC Study Tour – developed in partnership with the VBHC Center Europe and based on material co-created by Michael Porter – provides members with a unique opportunity to study the latest thinking in VBHC while being exposed to award-winning practices from leading VBHC practitioners.

At the end of the two days, which include multiple Harvard Business School case discussions and contributions from inspirational keynote speakers about the newest insights and developments in VBHC, participants will be invited to sit the online VBHC exam to achieve the highly regarded VBHC Green Belt Certificate.

Still in Amsterdam, the group will then spend a day with international data-set experts ICHOM discussing implementation practices, looking at how to organisationally move towards a more outcomes-focused healthcare model.

Time will also be spent in discussions and workshops exploring new thinking about VBHC payment models. Take a look at the future pipeline of technologies and therapies being developed for VBHC.
