Improving healthcare value - the use of disease registries
Since 2009, The Boston Consulting Group has been studying disease registries as a potential model for value-based health care, an approach to controlling health care costs that emphasizes maximising value, defined as patient outcomes divided by costs.
A group of senior health-care leaders in Sweden asked BCG to analyse the country’s disease registries and evaluate the opportunities and costs involved in expanding the registry model to include other conditions.
The study that took place concluded that by investing $70 million annually in disease registries, data analysis resources and IT infrastructure, Sweden could reduce its annual growth in health-care spending from an estimated 4.7% to 4.1%.
