    Healixia lunchmeeting: Value Based Healthcare


    In this session, we will explore how value-based healthcare (VBHC) provides a philosophy and instrument to redirect our healthcare system. 

    Prof. Brecht Cardoen, Vlerick business school & KU Leuven, will sketch the theoretical framework on VBHC and its implementation. Prof. Dr. Jo Lambert, UZ Gent, illustrates this with real life examples from her own practice.
