What is value-based health care? The person-centered concept focuses on quality of care, provider performance and the patient experience. This is directly aligned with CIUSSS West-Central Montreal’s philosophy of Care Everywhere, which emphasizes the delivery of the right care at the right time, with the right outcomes in whichever location is most appropriate, safest and most convenient for the recipients of health care and social services.
