Value-Based Health Care masterclasses:

  • Offer innovative methodologies that have been academically validated by an international advisory board.
  • Offer practical approaches based on best practices from the United States, Germany, Sweden, and more.
  • Are focused on talking less and doing more: hands-on experience.
  • Address participants’ own experiences and dilemmas.
  • Have BIG/KNMG accreditation.

After participating in one of the masterclasses you have:

  • A better understanding of the Value-Based Health Care concept.
  • A better understanding of the implementation methods.
  • A decision tool for the application of Value-Based Health Care.
  • Learned from challenges and experiences of like-minded professionals in other organizations.
  • A good start for your organization or department.

Whether you already have experience with VBHC or not, all healthcare professionals are welcome. Are you still a Rookie in the field of VBHC? For a small fee, a short introduction of one hour about VBHC is given prior to each master class, so that all participants can discuss with each other at the same level.
