Course Description

Do you want to play your part in shaping the future of health and care? Do you want to drive and implement Value-Based systems; where health, social care, third sector and life science work hand-in-hand to create the best outcomes possible for patients and service users as well as the bottom line?

There is a growing requirement for health and 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.

With a unique format that is sympathetic to the role of professional learners from health, social care, third sector and life-science industries, it uses and applies the knowledge gained to benefit the individual and the system.

The aim of this Master’s is 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.

You will develop the necessary skills to implement an innovative Value-Based strategy within an organisation.
