About this event
The third and final webinar of the ‘Future of Value-Based Healthcare in Ireland’ series, this webinar focuses on how Ireland can create more patient focused healthcare initiatives in the context of value-based healthcare.
Increasingly, it is recognised that patients in Ireland have a key role to play in improving the quality of the health service they receive by participating in the design and delivery of the service themselves. Meaningful consultation with patients can help providers understand the quality of care a patient receives in areas such as effectiveness of treatments.
This free to attend webinar is chaired by Business Post columnist and former Health Service Executive Director General, Tony O’Brien, and will explore how to ensure value-based healthcare initiatives are patient-centred. The panel of experts will examine how the Irish health service compares to other countries on the integration of patient experience into clinical care, how we improve the routine collection of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in our health service, and the barriers to the greater integration of patient experience into healthcare and service planning.

About the ‘Future of Value-Based Healthcare in Ireland’ webinar series
All healthcare systems today are under pressure to spend their resources wisely and efficiently. Ever more often the concept of ‘value-based healthcare’ is discussed as an idea to improve resource allocation. Value-based healthcare, a broad term that describes efforts to maximise quality of care and health outcomes relative to expenditures, is an important trend with the potential to reshape the healthcare landscape. Although there is significant interest in value-based healthcare in Ireland, lack of clarity around outcome definitions, regulations, measurement, logistics and other considerations have slowed its uptake.
This three-part webinar series aims to facilitate discussion and introduce new perspectives on value-based healthcare, what this looks like in an Irish context and what value-based health arrangements, such as a greater focus on disease prevention, outcomes and patient centricity, mean for the Irish health services.
