VBHC Academy at Swansea University: MSc Advanced Health and Care Management - Value-Based Pathway


There is a growing requirement for health and social care systems to adopt a value-based capability; in order to lead organisational and system-wide transformation. The future challenges call for a radical new approach, underpinned by prudent principles, to lead change, harness new disruptive technologies and contest the purpose, value and location of existing service provision for patients.

Through its VBHC Academy, Swansea University is unique in offering a masters level degree with a specific pathway in the principles and application of Value-Based Healthcare in health, social care and the life-science sectors. Its aims to enable individuals to immerse themselves in the new paradigm of Value in health and care; how to implement it in practice at a population and individual level, capturing outcomes that matter, utilising digital technologies, applying new costing models, innovative procurement approaches and adopting a total pathway-of-care approach. Participants will develop the necessary skills to implement an innovative Value-Based strategy within an organisation.
