Join us as we discuss how health authorities, providers and systems in BC can respond to the challenge of optimizing value in an era of increasing fiscal restraint, increasing demand and funding reform. How can healthcare organizations achieve sustainability with the requirements to improve quality of care while also achieving recurring cost savings? Value Optimization – moving away from an annual budgeting exercise of tactical savings to developing a 3-4 year road map to achieve both financial and clinical sustainability.
