NUHS is the first healthcare cluster in Singapore to look into adopting the Value-Driven Outcomes (VDO) framework in 2015 to drive value-based healthcare. Two years later, the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Singapore adopted NUHS VDO initiative and introduced the National Value-Driven Care (VDC) initiative to drive value-driven care across all public healthcare institutions.
“Using data to drive more value in our healthcare system will be one key priority. A good example is NUHS’ ongoing Value Driven Outcome project. By collecting, benchmarking and analyzing various quality and cost indicators, and providing the data to healthcare professionals, it enabled them to identify cost-effective clinical practices, reduce unnecessary variations and improve both cost and quality outcomes.”
