Healthcare costs are rising rapidly, while budget constraints are struggling to keep up with increasing demands. This has made it imperative to get more value from healthcare investments. Aging populations and increasing numbers of individuals with chronic diseases are straining the resources of governments worldwide. In response to these challenges, the focus has shifted to value-based healthcare (VBHC), where under spotlights are treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction.

VBHC represents a shift from the traditional fee-for-service (FFS) model which encourages healthcare providers to provide more services without tracking patient outcomes. In contrast, value-based care rewards quality over quantity and encourages providers to prioritize patient outcomes, care coordination, and population health management. However, the variability in measuring patient outcomes, defining values, and selecting performance metrics invites further discussion, highlighting the complexity of this approach.

Information Technology (IT) plays a significant role in facilitating change across different fields. However, it is crucial to comprehend the exact role that IT plays in the adoption of VBHC. It is important to understand what influence IT has on the process of VBHC adoption.


Main questions:

  • What is value-based healthcare and how can it be effectively implemented in Slovenia?
  • How can healthcare providers be incentivized to adopt value-based care practices?
  • What role do policymakers play in addressing financial uncertainties during the transition to value-based models?
  • What steps can be taken to ensure that value-based care models prioritize prevention and chronic disease management, particularly in underserved communities within the country, to reduce healthcare utilization and improve overall health outcomes?
  • What role does innovative IT play in enhancing value-based care initiatives?


The event will open with a welcome speech from dr. Valentina Prevolnik Rupel, Minister, Ministry of Health. Our keynote speaker, dr. Patrik Georgii-Hemming, Head of Medical Information at the world-renowned Karolinska Hospital in Sweden, will then share the hospital’s positive and less-than-positive experiences in implementing value-based healthcare practices. Karolinska Hospital is one of the world’s leading institutions in adopting the VBHC approach.

His presentation will be followed by a round table discussion, which will include:

  • Dr. Patrik Georgii-Hemming, Karolinska Hospital, Sweden
  • Dr. Petra Došenović Bonča, School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana
  • M.Sc. Anže Droljc, director of business development, Better
  • Nina Remškar, member of the Cabinet of the Minister of Health

The moderator of the round table will be dr. Miro Gradišar, professor of Business Informatics at SEB LU.
