Value-Based Health Care Prize 2018


Recognize, inspire and celebrate

The Prize’s philosophy is to recognize, support and embrace initiatives that redefine health care. Each year, one excellent initiative is awarded the VBHC Prize, a prestigious award that boosts this initiative in many ways. Three Excellence Awards are awarded to outstanding initiatives in the categories Patient outcomes, Collaboration and Cost-effectiveness.

The Value-Based Health Care Prize was awarded for the fifth time in 2018. The VBHC Prize 2018 was awarded at the VBHC Prize Event on April 26th, 2018 at Landgoed de Salentein in Nijkerk.
