An article in NEJM Catalyst compares and contrasts value-based health-care systems in Massachusetts, the Netherlands, Norway and England, revealing structural differences and variation in programs’ emphasis. This provides insights on how policymakers and providers can speed up implementation of value-based care.
The authors conclude:
“There is a general drive across all of the studied systems toward a more value-based health care, although there is a considerable variation in VBHC implementation status among the systems. Our study shows that strengthening government involvement in driving change, focusing on continuous IT improvements to ensure the availability of outcome data across the full care cycle, and instituting a VBHC culture among providers may prove to be pivotal in accelerating the implementation of VBHC across different health care systems.”
