Prof. Dr. Fred van Eenennaam has bundled the existing information to write a methodology based on the principles of Value-Based Health Care by Harvard Professors Porter, Teisberg and Kaplan, and has had a lot of feedback from international colleagues. The methodology is based on starting the dialogue with medical professionals, care providers and executives on Patient Value. With practical tools, workshops and pressure-cooker sessions, a hands-on approach is provided to ‘change’ the view of the organization and its employees.
The resulted methodology is described in the following articles:
- Note 5: Outcome Measures: Practices and methodologies
- Outcome measures and Patient Initial Conditions (only available in Dutch)
For more information, watch this video about health care cost:
- Michael E. Porter and Robert S. Kaplan, Harvard Business School professors and authors of the HBR article “How to Solve the Cost Crisis in Health Care,” explain why providers must start with proper measurement. (2012)
If you are interested in learning more about the Value-Based Health Care methodology, we would like to refer to The Decision Institue. The Decision Institute has a lot of experience on teaching about the methodology and organizes monthly Masterclasses and Workshops.
