New Report reviewing Pay-for-Success Models
Researchers from the PreCare project have finalised a new report, which provides an overview of Pay-for-Success (PFS), an innovative financing and contracting model for improving social outcomes. The report focuses especially on the potentials of PFS models to promote innovative, outcomes-based health services.
Access the new report here: Pay for Success Literature Review - A PreCare Report
The PreCare initiative
The report has been developed as part of the PreCare initiative, which focuses on developing preventive health care solutions. Key tasks in the project include the development of a health data platform and the establishment of
an E-doctor organization based on the Epical Care Model (ECM). The project has received funding from Innovation Fund Denmark and includes partners from Region Zealand, Odsherred Municipality, Roche, DTU, Urgent Agency, and Manchester Business School.
MSC contributes to the PreCare project with knowledge on population health management, value-based healthcare, and Pay-for-Success (PFS) models. Moreover, CBS participates in the development of education and communication material based on the experiences from the PreCare project. Professor Esben Rahbek Gjerdrum Pedersen is the core MSC participant in the project.
