Value-based Procurement in Healthcare

Date:  Thursday, January 24, 2019   Time:  3:00 PM – 3:45 PM Atlantic Standard Time

Facilitator:  Kara LeBlanc, Category Manager, Service New Brunswick

The aim of value-based procurement is redefining evaluation methods in tendering processes that result in increased diffusion of medical technologies, improved patient outcomes and reduced costs over the long-term. The adoption of value-based procurement is not yet widespread across Canada.

Kara LeBlanc will present her masters research on the topic of value-based procurement in healthcare. The presentation will include a review of case studies from European countries, key conditions under which certain approaches to value-based procurement in Europe worked well, and implementation considerations for New Brunswick, Canada. 

Join Kara as she describes how conditions in Europe versus New Brunswick highlight specific implementation factors for the Province to consider. 

Kara LeBlanc is a healthcare procurement professional at Service New Brunswick on the Strategic Procurement Health team. Kara has presented her masters research on value-based procurement at HSCN's 2017 Conference, MEDEC's 2017 speaker series, and medical supplier leadership teams.
