Value-Based Cancer Care
Implementing data-driven value-based cancer services across Victoria.
Currently, healthcare in Victoria has financial incentives that focus on episodic service delivery instead of patient outcomes. This can lead to disconnects between service providers across the continuum of care.
Value-based care promises to deliver health services where and when they are needed most, minimising low-value services, and maximising those that deliver the best possible outcomes.
“It is time for system wide change. This means moving away from the medical focus of ‘treat at any cost’ to adopting a patient-centred approach related to what patients need and want.”
