The MTAA Value-Based Procurement Forum

Every state and territory, and private hospital system has some form of procurement of medical devices in place. But how do we know that those processes are delivering value for patients and the system, rather than just the lowest cost?

There has been a lot of discussion about value-based healthcare in Australia and around the world, but how can this be applied to the purchasing and utilisation of medical devices in hospital systems so that healthcare and benefits for patients are optimised? These and many other questions will be discussed at the upcoming Value-Based Procurement Forum, hosted in Sydney.

T – Transform – discover what’s needed to drive value

I  - Implement – understand challenges in implementation

C – Culture – learn how to influence culture change from low prices to value

K - Kick-off – find out how to get started
