The Future of Health Care: Unlocking & Supporting Value

Today’s breakthrough medicines have transformed how we treat and cure some of the most complex diseases facing patients. Unfortunately, patients often have to fight to access these innovative treatments. In response to this issue, the movement toward a system that focuses on value and outcomes for patients has gained even more momentum in recent years.

On September 19, 2017, The Value Collaborative partnered with Bloomberg to convene CEOs, experts and thought leaders to discuss how stakeholders are working together across the health care ecosystem to unlock and support value in the future of health care. Panelists at the event talked about how groups are working together to better define value, what steps need to be taken to create an infrastructure that can support a value-driven system and what is currently being done to ensure that the movement toward better value for patients and the system continues amidst a changing policy landscape.
