Through a rigorous selection process developed by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), potential hubs are assessed using a value-based healthcare maturity assessment to assess the maturity of innovation hubs in progressing towards a value-based approach to healthcare.

The Coalition’s goal is to share and learn from best practices, support new partnerships, and provide a platform to guide the implementation of value-based healthcare worldwide. These hubs are innovating and providing new ways to improve healthcare systems for everyone’s benefit. We hope that they can help us shape this global conversation.
