Value based healthcare at the UCLA Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Value based healthcare at the UCLA Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

This movie is the UCLA vision for chronic disease management. The concept of patient value is introduced, and quantified as a Value Quotient or VQ. It measures individual patient value (composed of Disease Control, Quality of Life, and Productivity) and the number of dollars spent per unit of value. In addition, the latest advances of science and technology are translated into daily clinical care, all with the aim of increasing value and decreasing costs. Patients are part of the team of health care professionals, and are rewarded through less costly health plans. This program has now started with a prototype chronic disease: inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis). Contact: ibdcenter@mednet.ucla.edu.
