mission

The Chair of Innovation & Value in Health develops teaching and research activities focused on Value-Based Health Care (VBHC), a standardized approach comparing patient outcomes in real-life. Our VBHC graduate program trains dedicated leaders in conducting change through health ecosystems driven by patient health gains. The Chair develops academic research in VBHC at the interface between health economics and innovation management. As part of the University of Paris School of Medicine – one of the largest and most selective in Europe – the Chair participates in the organization of a series of VBHC conferences to accelerate the transformation of healthcare systems.

Teaching

The Graduate Program in Value-Based Health Care offers a unique training approach to help leaders driving organizational change and making high-value care a reality. Inspired by action-learning dynamics, participants reveal their entrepreneurial energy with tools & techniques, case studies, role plays, immersion visits and team projects. This part-time graduate program of two days per month is an outstanding opportunity for participants to expand their international network with world-class experts. This program welcomes a diversity of profiles ranging from health care professionals, payers, providers, industry managers, health policy makers, and leaders from scientific bodies and patient associations. Challenge yourself, meet talents, fuel your mind and graduate. All in one semester.

research

The Chair’s research projects focus on Value-Based Health Care. We calibrate PROM & PREM instruments such as the Q-PASREL that measure the quality of the patient-surgeon relationship and its impact on return to work. Another research project on cataract surgery (PromCat) evaluates how public reporting of patient outcomes improves the average score of patient health gains and reduces inappropriate care. We also surveyed patients in 4 EU countries to determine what quality indicators matter most when choosing or evaluating a medical team. The European Union (EIT Health) commissioned Prof. Gregory Katz as Academic Director of the report published in 2020 entitled Implementing Value-Based Health Care in Europe: Handbook for Pioneers.

Conferences

The Chair actively participates in the organization of a series of conferences on Value-Based Health Care with experts from around the world. We invite health system leaders to share their experience in how VBHC is transforming practices and informing payment models and policy reforms. In 2018 a conference was organized in partnership with the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), with the participation of Professor Michael Porter (Harvard Business School). In 2023, the Chair will organize a VBHC Summit in Paris, in partnership with ICHOM.
