Geraldine Jordan, Portfolio Lead said:

"Applying the value management approach brings a number of benefits for the participating boards at both individual team and whole system levels.

"I'm looking forward to working with the boards on value management to support clinical, care and finance teams to apply QI methods with cost and quality data to deliver improved value for patients, systems and the people who work in them.

How did the Value Management approach originate?

NHS Highland, working in collaboration with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), has been developing a value management approach that provides practical interventions for clinical, care and finance teams to identify their key opportunities for improving quality and value and apply quality improvement methods to act on these.

The overall approach has three core components:

  • Creating the conditions for quality improvement through organisational culture, leadership and infrastructure interventions.
  • Team, ward level quality and value improvement interventions and coaching.
  • Quality improvement and coaching capacity and capability building.
