EIT Health launches High Value Care Forum

The EIT Health High Value Care (HVC) Forum aims to help transform health care systems and become a leading voice for high value care in Europe.

EIT Health today announced the launch of its new initiative, High Value Care (HVC) Forum, set-up in partnership with both academic and institutional organisations with the aim of leading efforts in high value care in Europe. The forum will provide support for those in the health care industry to drive change within multi-stakeholder, multidisciplinary organisations, offering:

  • Education and training for health care professionals; patients, families and carers; and decision-makers and policymakers.
  • Best practice sharing so that health care providers and national/regional health systems can learn from each other on how to successfully implement high value care.

The HVC Forum will include a library of case studies from HVC pioneers across Europe, in order to gather lessons learned and inform future activity. There will also be training opportunities to provide a strong and well-tailored curriculum for health care professionals; patients, citizens and carers; and policymakers.

The launch of the forum comes on the back of significant research undertaken by EIT Health into the advancements of health care systems in implementing organisational change to pave the way for the restructuring of health care delivery towards outcomes that matter most to patients. This culminated in the creation of the Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) handbook that describes the key steps health care providers can take to fully realise the opportunity presented by VBHC.
