24 apr Value Based Healthcare Prize 2014
On April 10th, 2014, the first edition of the Value Based Healthcare Prize took place. The first prize, a Harvard style business case, was won by project “Meetbaar Beter”.
The prize for the most exceptional initiative in collaborations went to Jippa, a collaborative by VUmc, CZ, Radboud UMC and Tilburg University. The project includes almost half of all Dutch hospitals in their efforts to implement and test a decision aid for treatment for early stage prostate cancer, and involves many stakeholders wihtin these hospitals. Jippa aims to implement shared decision making for a large group of patients, thereby involving patients in the creation of value. The project originated from a collaboration between a university, two hospitals and an insurance company, and now has a reach of over 40 hospitals.
