Value-Based Health Care in mental health services
Together with payor and providers we have established a Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) trajectory that is suitable for mental health. With this VBHC trajectory called ‘Anxiety and Depression’, i2i contributed to the affordability and accessibility of mental health care.
How? i2i analysed the treatment of anxiety and depression; we investigated, for example, patients’ treatment intensity, the degree of relapse and the completion of the treatment. Our benchmark reports were used during intervision meetings: mental health professionals exchanged experiences and learned from each other. Themes that were discussed: how do we ensure that clients end up with the right practitioner? When do we, as practitioners, know whether a client’s treatment can come to an end? These are educational processes that provide many insights into increasing the value of care for clients.
