At QURE Healthcare, our vision is to improve healthcare quality worldwide. The same services and tools that we provide companies, care providers and payers to optimize quality of care are also instrumental to domestic and international policy makers.
Investments in health are wasted and ultimately have minimal impact when little is known about the health care landscape or how to prioritize spending. Using QURE’s CPV® vignettes, QURE enables informed policy decision-making through the provision of timely and relevant data and analyses.
Health system decision makers need information about the existing quality of healthcare in order to pinpoint areas and opportunities for improvement. QURE provides data on the baseline level of care, variations in care, and changes that occur over time with policy interventions. CPV® vignettes address a diverse spectrum of diseases and preventive care to provide a panorama of the quality across an entire health system. This is invaluable information for prioritization of policy and programs.
QURE’s unique tools can be used to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of policy and health interventions. This has far-reaching implications for decision makers at all levels. Before investing in a health intervention for an entire country or region, CPV® vignettes can validate and compare several interventions to see which has the largest impact on improving quality and decreasing cost. In the U.S., as healthcare expenditures continue to grow, CPV® vignettes complemented by pertinent cost data help guide policy makers choose appropriate courses of action that are cost-effective.
