This panel of senior public leaders across the world will discuss whether we may be ready for change including more patient centric healthcare systems, sharper monitoring of patient outcomes, establish payment models that do not promote volume, but value and better patient health and be ready to invest behind long needed digital standards to learn more and faster from practice across nations.
• What would it take to drive change, rather than returning to Status Quo?
• What are the barriers for leading policy-makers to step up and change the regulatory and legal environment to reduce waste and systematically improve the value delivered to patients?
• In which countries do you expect to see most progress?
• What is the role of the international community, organizations such as WHO, OECD, World Bank and others?
This session presents the PromCat initiative, an experimental implementation of a value-based ecosystem incentivizing transparency on patient health gains following cataract surgery. The French Ministry of Health and the National payer selected the project through a national program testing innovative healthcare delivery and payment models. PromTime is the architect and third-party coordinator of the PromCat ecosystem, which encourages transparency on patient outcomes and open benchmarks of medical teams. The PromCat initiative uses the machine-readable version of the ICHOM standard set for cataracts to improve interoperability with medical software and facilitate large-scale implementation. The PromCat initiative involves national and regional health authorities, the French Ophthalmology Committee, intraocular lens manufacturers, and the French Federation of Patients and Health System Users.
Nursing staff work in almost every stage and setting of health and care, serving as the vital link between doctor and patient. As such they have an important role across a wide range of public health interventions. Their knowledge and skills and their relationships with patients and the population makes them important advocates in their care and integral part in preventing illness, protecting health and outcomes that matter most to patients.
As such the session aims to showcase the role nurses play in delivering patient-centric care and highlight the importance of recognising, measuring and rewarding the value nurses bring to patients’ outcomes improvement.
The session will look at how the integration of medical and social care can address and improve patient services and outcomes by eliminating hospital readmissions and as a result reduce cost for the healthcare system. Speakers will discuss the enablers and barriers associated with such implementation.
Remote monitoring is becoming a standard in cancer patients after the positivity of 7 randomized trials showing improvement of quality of life, symptom burden reduction, and survival.It can be used for toxicity of treatments management, for relapse or complications detection and for supportive and palliative care delivery. Criteria of choice of the instrument are in discussion and will be published by the European Society of Medical Oncology in a few months. It will provide criteria of security, efficacy and practical information for medical team to improve the spread of validated solutions.
In countries like India, South Africa, and Ghana, diabetes has emerged as a major driver of both health outcomes and long-term costs. Yet their health systems are not yet well-equipped to meet the needs of people living with diabetes. As these countries chart a path toward Universal Health Coverage, they will need to expand programs to prevent and manage diabetes. This session engages innovators at the forefront of the movement. We will hear from the perspectives of a patient, provider, and payer on the challenges and opportunities they face in their work.
The session will provide an update on the Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) project which is funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative and started a year ago. H2O is a private-public partnership that sets up a multi-jurisdictional ecosystem to incorporate patient-reported and other health outcomes into health care decision-making in four European countries. It initially focuses on diabetes, cancer, and inflammatory bowel disease, evaluating and selecting meaningful outcome standards in a way that ensures broad acceptability among all stakeholders. H2O provides digital tools for patients and a dashboard for providers. It develops a governance system that gives patients control over their data and allows for ethical data sharing. In our talk, we will also present ways to get involved in this initiative.
The session will provide an insight into the ICHOM Benchmarking platform and will discuss the platform’s objectives and functioning, explain the value it brings to care providers and patients’ outcome improvement as well as address possible concerns.

Please join Elizabeth Teisberg, Alice Andrews and Scott Wallace of the Value Institute for Health and Care (University of Texas at Austin), and Dr. Paul M. Wallang, MD, of St. Andrew’s Healthcare for a highly-interactive discussion of the care transformation underway at St. Andrew’s Healthcare in England. Driven to achieve the health outcomes that mattered most to their patients, an ambitious team of clinicians at St. Andrew’s fundamentally restructured care delivery and is driving ongoing improvement through insights from carefully measuring outcomes. This session will be limited to 40 participants, advance registration is required, and participants should expect to spend approximately one hour reading the case before the session.
Total number of attendees – 60

The workshop will start with a plenary session where ICHOM CEO and Directors will provide an overview on the 2021 initiatives, including machine-readable sets, standard sets that are being developed, the framework for harmonising standard sets and an overview of the ICHOM new data dictionaries - SNOMED, LOINC, ICD10. Then delegates will be invited to select one of the below breakout rooms for the continued conversation and questions to ICHOM.
