From volume-based to value-based health care, Umair Aslam, e-Health Lead, MSD

Imagine a healthcare system where the healthcare providers, including hospitals and physicians, are paid based on the patient health outcomes and not on the number of healthcare services they deliver. Value-based healthcare is seen as a way to address the rising healthcare costs, while at the same time achieve the ultimate goal of «Patient-Centered Care» and higher quality. These are just some of the questions that Umair addressed in this talk about how the shift from a «Volume-Based» to a «Value-Based» model could change the healthcare sector forever.
