Session Abstract – PMWC 2018 Silicon Valley

Session Synopsis: It is critically important that we all aim for the best possible outcome of care at the lowest possible cost. Value-based healthcare matters to both patients and providers. Value-based healthcare models have the potential to overturn traditional patient care models. Yet, the industry is facing challenges when implementing this new approach. To better understand how other countries are progressing towards value-based healthcare we have a planned a session with a series of global representatives that will discuss their learnings.
