A Healthier Wales the Welsh Government's Plan for Health and Social Care sets out the need for services to change so they can meet the challenges of the future and help deliver the best results for patients in Wales.
It indicates that the NHS needs to find new, flexible, and smarter ways of providing services. In particular, health and care services should deliver better outcomes that matter to people. By talking to people about what they want, and what treatment might or might not be able to achieve, health care becomes more personalized and people feel more involved in decisions about their own care.
In most healthcare systems clinical data is routinely collected, however, patients have limited opportunities to provide information on their own perception of outcomes, symptoms, priorities, and experiences.
The Value in Health Programme is here to help solve this. Please explore our website to find more information about how.
