Research Australia invites its members to join this Health Economics Roundtable.

There is growing interest in alternate ways to fund healthcare, with many in government and the health sector exploring value-based care models. The National Hospital Reform Agreement Addendum 2020-25 sets a pathway for long term reform. Value-based care aims to align payment incentives with health system objectives to achieve better value by driving improvements in quality and slowing growth in spending. This Roundtable will explore value-based care and its implications for the health and medical research community.
