Adjusting to a new normal: How to have mercy on yourself while working at home with kids
Demographic and economic shifts are causing strain on global healthcare systems by increasing health needs. Healthcare costs are growing and putting pressure on budgets and there is a clear need to slow the growing share of healthcare costs of GDP.
Value-Based Healthcare is about maximizing health while decreasing the effort required. In traditional volume-based healthcare, we measure actions and tasks, while in value-based healthcare, we measure health. In Finland, where improved health has been achieved with fewer costs this method is seeing tremendous success and interest.
Helsinki University Faculty of Medicine has partnered with Reaktor and Gesund Partners to create an open free online course aimed at healthcare professionals, public health policymakers, and medical students. The creators of this course firmly believe that making this course freely available for everyone interested in this topic will ultimately enable wellbeing and health for all of society.
This course has been launched in Finland in the context of Finnish healthcare with the backing of partners in the life sciences industry: Novartis and Janssen from Johnson & Johnson. They wanted to partake in the project to share insights with professionals navigating the everyday challenges of public healthcare and budgets.
We have now taken up the challenge of bringing this free online course to the European context and are looking for partners willing to back this mission. Would you be interested in becoming one of the patrons of this course, and help to create consensus and knowledge about the transformation in healthcare?
The fundamentals of Value-Based Healthcare is an online course created by Reaktor and Gesund Partners in partnership with the University of Helsinki.
The course itself is an entry-level course on the topic of Value-based Healthcare, allowing you to add value to your customers and other stakeholders, and create a common language around the topic. The course has been designed for students, physicians, nurses, policymakers, hospital directors, municipalities, pharmaceutical companies, and anyone who would like to find out more. Participants will get practical case examples and the information they need to form part of the conversation on shaping the future of healthcare.
