Value Innovation Communities


How do you bring outcomes-based care to your health economy effectively and efficiently?

The Value Innovation Communities (VIC) Programme is a new way of providing affordable expert support and advice to local health economies on contracting and delivering outcomes-based care. ICHOM (the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement), Cobic and Capsticks are collaborating in this Programme to guide local commissioners and providers through how to use outcomes as a currency and craft the contract in which they sit, and how to implement such a contract so that frontline care can better recognise and deliver the outcomes that matter.

With limited funds for transformation, commissioners and providers alike need a quick and affordable way to bring outcomes-based care to their areas. Such support would:

  • Be affordable within local commissioning/transformation budgets
  • Bring experience and learning from the forerunners in outcomes-based care in the NHS and applicable lessons from abroad
  • Describe clearly and directly to local stakeholders the case for moving to an outcomes-based currency
  • Help local leaders use outcomes as the common purpose for collaboration and integration of care
  • Provider a peer-to-peer learning environment
  • Be flexible enough to adapt to local issues and environments
  • Make best use of and up-skill in-house staff
  • Work to a programme management format to keep momentum going

The Value Innovation Communities Programme aims to deliver just such support. See here for further information.
