Symposium 1: Beyond Quality to Value

Day 1 , 12 October 2017 , Thursday

Level 1, Exhibition Hall 1B
Dr Anant Jani
Executive Director, Better Value Healthcare,
Honorary Research Fellow,
Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, U.K
University of Oxford


Anant’s experience in health care started when working with Sir Muir Gray on the QIPP Right Care programme in the England Department of Health. This involved helping localities across England to design and implement high value population-based healthcare systems, including building the first national system for stroke prevention for patients with Atrial Fibrillation, which was a joint venture with NHS England and Public Health England.

Anant is working on the value based healthcare theme within the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and is interested in understanding and implementing value based healthcare, particularly focusing on the Triple Value framework:

  • Allocative value, determined by how the assets are distributed to different sub groups in the population
  • Technical value, determined by how well resources are used for all the people in need in each sub group
  • Personal value, determined by how well the decision relates to the values of each individual

Before working in healthcare, Anant was a molecular immunologist studying gene regulation and epigenetics in B and T cells. He completed his undergraduate studies at Brandeis University and his doctoral studies at Yale University.

At a time when demand for healthcare services is increasing and resources available to deliver care are stagnant or decreasing, we must look to a new paradigm to ensure we can continue delivering care to the same, and ideally better, standards to the patients and populations we are accountable to. In these challenging times, a focus on quality and safety is necessary but not sufficient. We must shift our focus to a value-based healthcare paradigm, which will help us deliver better outcomes while optimizing resource utilization.
