Research Area 2: Reducing waste and low value care
Our research team have had a busy year working on a scoping review for research stream 2.2: lower cost delivery of effective and appropriate services. The scoping review has allowed us to gain insight into the current research evidence on alternative models of service delivery (e.g. care provided in the home instead of in hospital).
The next step for our research team is to prioritise the alternative delivery arrangements for further investigation. We are seeking input from key stakeholders and leaders in the field on the delivery arrangements considered to be of highest priority for closer investigation. We also need input on whether there are other promising alternative delivery arrangements, not already identified in the scoping review, which should be further explored. Through this work we hope to identify opportunities for system gain where effective and potentially lower cost alternatives exist.
If you would be interested in participating in our prioritisation process, or you would like some more information, please contact Polina Putrik at [email protected] or Rebecca Jessup at [email protected].
Redefining Healthcare – Value-Based Health Care on 8–9 October 2018, Brisbane
This workshop will explore concepts and frameworks of value-based care delivery, such as understanding patient segments, identifying opportunities to improve current services, measuring meaningful outcomes, accelerating learning in clinical teams and achieving new payment models. As leaders across health care embrace the concept of value, many are seeking ways to accelerate transformation within their organizations. Please join Professors Elizabeth Teisberg and Scott Wallace from the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin for a two-day interactive dialogue among leaders in value-based health care.
