Value-based procurement (VBP) is a journey, not a sprint. It’s about putting the patient at the centre of quality affordable healthcare through changes in procurement practices for medical technologies. Patient outcomes drive value and sustainability, not just price. The bigger picture indicates that VBP will create system cost saving through benefitting patients, rather than trying to attain the reverse – a win-win outcome.
Transforming from our price-based sourcing model to a value-based approach requires the sharing of goals and collaborative effort from all stakeholders – doctors, patients, procurement professionals, MedTech professions.
