Recognition in Delivering Value-based Healthcare
This recognition aims to increase the profile and understanding of value-based healthcare by honouring an organization, or team, that is deliberate in changing the way that care is delivered, resulting in improved patient outcomes. This means that patients are being optimally cared for at the right time, in the right setting and at the right cost.
2019 Recipient: Western Health and Central Health
The recognized project, “Optimizing Care of Frail Elderly Residents in Long Term Care”, was a collaborative initiative of Western Health, Central Health and the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH). The goal was to implement best practice in the care of frail elderly residents in Long Term Care facilities throughout Western Health and Central Health.
As a result of this project, and through dedicated efforts aligned with the LEADS framework, Western Health and Central Health created value for patients and caregivers, as well as clinicians and health systems, enabling better care provision and better use of resources. The approach continues to cultivate broad understanding on the application of value-based healthcare, and is driven by a focus of continuous learning and improvement.Click here for the full article
