Transforming Surgical Care – Make Value-Based Care a Reality


Given the U.S. healthcare system is rapidly changing, it is paramount for healthcare providers to shift away from volume-based care and implement value-based care. Measuring efficiency can provide a surrogate measure of value. The definition proposed by Professor Porter makes value-based care measurable and actionable: improving outcomes and reducing treatment costs.

Leveraging two example surgical procedures – hernia repair and rotator cuff repair and based on the experiences of Boston Hernia and Avant-garde Health, we summarize the core steps to improve outcomes and reduce costs. Equipped with these proven methods and tools, we will be able to further transform surgical care and make value-based care a reality.
