Since 2008, more than 21.100 international health care professionals followed Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) education at The Decision Institute. In co-creation with the founder of the VBHC concept – Prof. Michael E. Porter, Ph.D. (Harvard Business School) – The Decision Institute has developed a number of methodologies to implement the Value-Based Health Care from different perspectives: The medical condition, patient values, the care cycle, outcome measures, organization design, health costing, and value proposition. Through our masterclasses and VBHC Green Belt Track, we provide ‘tastings’ of these methodologies, by which you can internalize the concept and get enabled to start improving your own health care delivery.
