Implementing outcomes-based healthcare Brussels

The International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM) in collaboration with EFPIA and will host a full-day seminar in Brussels on how to drive healthcare systems towards becoming more outcomes-based, patient-centred and efficient through the standardised measurement of patient-relevant health outcomes.

Throughout the day, expert presentations will guide you through the theory and practice behind measuring health outcomes, how ICHOM standard sets in different disease areas are constructed. You will hear several practical case-studies on how the consistent measurement of outcomes can improve care for patients, which as a result will also help ensuring smart spending of healthcare budgets. 

The day will end with two panel discussions - the first with stakeholders from the Belgian perspective and the second with EU-level policy makers and stakeholders - both discussing how to put this model into practice on a larger scale, the barriers to implementation and how national and EU policy makers could help further this agenda in order to improve patient care while making healthcare systems more financially sustainable. Please find enclosed the final agenda for the event.
