A global definition for Value

Value-based care works to improve the health outcomes of patients while optimizing health systems to reduce health care costs.

Value-based care puts patients at the center of health systems, with a focus on creating healthy societies. Michael Porter define value as the outcomes that matter to patients and the costs to achieve those outcomes.





G20 called for the creation of the Global Innovation Hub for Improving Value In Health. “Well-functioning, value-based, inclusive, and resilient health systems are critical to move towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC). 



Housed in the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health, the Hub’s secretariat begins operation as a fully fledged organization dedicated to the mission of improving value.
