Value-based healthcare is a model where providers, such as hospitals and physicians, are paid based on health outcomes against the cost of their delivery (Porter, 2010). This is in contrast to fee-for-service, capitated approaches, and activity-based funding where payment is dependent on the volume, factoring in case complexity, of healthcare services provided to people. For instance, public mental health services in Australia are largely funded through block grants.
