What is Value in Healthcare?

Professor Martin Elliott

Value is the importance, worth or usefulness of something. In healthcare, it has been argued that the only value that matters is that to the patient. 

This lecture considers this hypothesis and the relationship between clinical outcome and cost of treatment.
