ABSTRACT: Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) is transitioning to a model of care that reflects the principles of value-based healthcare. By co-designing a new system in partnership with our consumers and staff, we are driving better health outcomes and experiences for clients.
In February 2017, we started developing a model for value based oral healthcare and in October 2018, we commenced our proof of concept at The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne. Client and staff feedback has been overwhelming positive thus far indicating that we are on our way to creating an oral health system that improves the health outcomes that matter to clients.
