Getting started with Value-Based Health Care
What is the essence of Value-Based Health care? The best care for the patient. Care that aligns with the medical necessity and the patient’s needs and thus really helps. Based on these needs, a specific treatment plan is developed for the patient, in consultation with the patient’s relatives and informal caregivers if necessary. So as well as focusing on “what’s the matter” also focus on the question “what matters to the patient?”.
