Value-based Payments in Cancer Care Symposium

7-8 December 2021

We are pleased to present the work of the Centre of Research Excellence on Value-based Payments in Cancer Care. We are bringing together key Australian and International thinkers and policy makers for two mornings of stimulating presentations and debate on how Australia can move towards a value-based health system, in cancer care and beyond.

On Day 1 CRE researchers will present work on new ways of understanding healthcare costs, provider behavior and measuring quality and outcomes. The panel will discuss what policy-makers need from research to ease the path to value-based payment reform.

On Day 2 we are pleased to welcome our plenary speaker Professor Ezekiel Emanuel from the University of Pennsylvania who will provide his insights into US-based payment reforms. Our expert panel led by Distinguished Professor Jane Hall will then discuss the stepping stones to a better performing health system.
