Winners VBHC Dragon

The Value-Based Health Care Dragons’ Grant & Endorsement was introduced in 2018 due to the high level of applicants that signed in for the VBHC Prize. Within this pool of applicants a lot of breakthrough initiatives were found with great potential and on their way to become a real game changer in patient value creation. However, they are not yet nominated by the international jury of the VBHC Prize because they still need to develop their initiative further.

As VBHC Center Europe we want to endorse those initiatives that still need some shaping and grant the VBHC growth diamonds that need scale-up in order to accelarate their VBHC initiative. By bringing together higly experienced early-adopters of the Value-Based Health Care concept and pioneering early stage initiatives we want to stimulate those initiatives to develop further and to become a potential VBHC Winner in the future.
