Program Objectives

The global healthcare delivery models are facing intense competition due to technology advancements, operational complexities, scarcity of skilled resources, stringent quality standards, increasing customer expectations and new health issues.

There is a gradual shift in strategy and business model by few healthcare enterprises globally from the supply-driven healthcare system to the patient-centered healthcare system. The metrics like profitability, turnover, number of patients served, accessibility of surgeons, etc. are no longer the only accepted and relevant measures of success or failure. There is a need for shift in orientation towards ensuring favorable patient outcomes during and after the treatment. The idea of value-based healthcare is driven by the focus on setting up Integrated Practice Units, measuring outcomes and costs at the patient level, bundled pricing, choice of locations, geographic expansion and information technology platform. Value is defined as the health outcomes achieved that matter to patients relative to the cost of achieving those outcomes.

This program is driven by Michael Porter’s works “Redefining Health Care” that focuses on the application of the fundamental principles of value-based health care delivery. This program focuses on the key practices and models around value-based healthcare delivery as well as their use primarily in the context of India.


The pedagogy involves case studies of global value-based healthcare delivery organizations like Cleveland Clinic in the USA, LifeSpring Hospitals in India, Joslin Diabetes Centre in the USA, Schon Klinik in Germany on Measuring Cost and Value, and ThedaCare in the USA.

The key topics include:

Supply-driven versus Patient-centered Healthcare Systems
