The transition to value-based care models is generating some of the most urgent and exciting conversations on the global digital health landscape. Every country has unique circumstances and legacy health systems that will influence how it navigates the shift to patient-centric models that focus on the quality of care delivered rather than the volume. The experiences of APAC countries, whether they are just setting out on this journey or have already achieved a degree of success, show that while contexts vary, they share many of the same challenges in realizing their value-based care ambitions.
HIMSS presented a set of policy recommendations for advancing value-based care at a virtual roundtable held on November 17th, 2021. This discussion was attended by representatives from governments and regional health authorities from nine Asia-Pacific countries: Australia, Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Japan, Pakistan, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand. As the roundtable was held under the Chatham House Rule, the participants quoted in this report have been de-identified.
