A Value-Based Care (VBC) system is being implemented by the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) to help the nation's healthcare delivery system overcome several difficulties.

When effectively implemented, the VBC will give residents access to basic healthcare that is of high quality and that is egalitarian, according to the NHIA.

The VBC system will also include provisions for spending money on preventative measures to enhance population health.

Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NHIA, made this announcement at the start of a 5-day workshop put on by the PharmAccess Foundation in collaboration with "Leapfrog to Value" and the Christian Health Association of Ghana.

The VBC will advise you on where to focus your efforts for the greatest results, and that is what we want to do, he added. The VBC will be a part of the National Health Insurance Scheme's (NHIS) quality plan to change how healthcare is provided and paid for, Dr. Okoe Boye stated.

He continued by saying that to improve the delivery of healthcare in Ghana, the NHIA has recently implemented digital technologies, such as the mobile NHIS renewal system.

The "CLAIM-IT" application, which enables hassle-free digital claim submission by providers, has also been launched under the program, he continued.

According to Dr. Okoe Boye, the digitization of the procedures has allowed the NHIA to analyze and display its data to support decision-making for enhancing the scheme's sustainability.

He said, "The digitalized procedures enable us to combine all the data we have on Ghanaians who visit hospitals. He claims that the adoption of Value-Based Care will be largely dependent on data analytics and the digitization of the NHIA system.

The present difficulties in managing health insurance have increased the demand for VBC, according to Dr. Peter Yeboah, executive director of the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG).

Dr. Gifty Sunkwa-Mills, Operations Manager at the PharmAccess Foundation in Ghana, stated that the Value-Based Care model will give providers access to outcomes and cost data once it is implemented.
