Healthcare providers and patients often encounter two types of problem – outcomes that are not as good, and/or costs that are higher than, they  both should and could be. Until relatively recently these two variables have not been routinely linked and measured as value, as they are for other transactions where benefits and costs have to be balanced against each other. This due to a number of constraints, some obvious, others less so. The objectives of this site are to provide access to learning resources to help identify and understand these constraints, and to show how they can be resolved through the development of appropriate analytical and managerial systems.
