[Source: Research & Innovation] In many of the world’s health systems, uneven access to care is matched by soaring costs and fragmented systems that put stress on both providers and their patients. With finite budgets and increasing costs, the status quo is unsustainable. What many are calling for is fundamental change, with a shift away from systems that are siloed by medical specialty to integrated systems that consider and treat patients holistically. This is the promise of value- based health care. This roundtable discussion will launch a global assessment of value-based healtcare and bring together stakeholders from the EU institutions, WHO and OECD representatives, medical society, chronic disease and therapeutic organisations, patients’ groups, national authorities.
