Given the relevance of using cost information to support the VBHC agenda focused on bundled payment models, CUF – Portuguese private healthcare provider – joined VOH.CoLAB to test and validate an efficient TDABC methodology for Knee Osteoarthrosis Surgery in two hospitals.

The collected data accounts for a 2-years follow-up period (400 patients) and includes both clinical- and patient- reported outcomes, following the ICHOM Standard Set for Hip & Knee Osteoarthritis.

For a transparent assessment of costs and time in the value chain of each hospital’s care delivery approach, direct observations are held by VOH.CoLAB researchers, clinical teams and Quality & Operations team.
