In an era where digital transformation is revolutionising every sector, the healthcare industry stands at a significant crossroad. With Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) at the core of this transition, the role of accountants is evolving dramatically. This book brings these pieces together to guide accountants and interested readers through the changing landscape.

The book begins by demystifying VBHC and introducing the concept of digital health. It examines how the digital transition is impacting accountants in the healthcare sector, outlining their shifting roles from traditional data processors to strategic advisors. The chapters delve into a broad range of topics including performance evaluation, operational budgeting, capital investment, and the need for adaptability in dealing with technological advancements. Alongside this, it showcases how these changes are shaping the future of accounting in healthcare and the skills necessary to navigate these novel pathways.

Targeted primarily at accountants, financial professionals in healthcare and health sector leaders, this book also serves as an accessible guide for those new to the subject. The readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the intersection of healthcare, accounting and digital technology, appreciating the value that adept accountants can bring to the VBHC journey. The book comes complete with real-world case studies, illuminating the complexities and rewards of VBHC's digital transition.
