What is Value Management

Value Management is a multidisciplinary approach that enables clinical, care and finance teams to apply quality improvement methods with combined quality and cost data at team level to deliver improved patient outcomes, experience and value.

The Value Management Collaborative launched in November 2019 and is currently seeking to embed and spread this approach within six participating NHS Scotland boards. This national improvement collaborative is led by Healthcare Improvement Scotland's ihub, working in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).


What we do

The core method of value management consists of the following components:

  • a box score which organises real time data on performance (quality), capacity and cost
  • a visual management board which displays data over time, linked analyses and related improvement work, and
  • weekly multidisciplinary huddles where teams meet to discuss data, share learning and plan improvement work.
