The Business Case for Prehabilitation | EBPOM London

"It was successful early on within the National Health Service.. [because] you could eliminate the cost of some unhelpful, unnecessary tests... referrals to other "-ologists"... in our system that works, because more work is just more work. It's not more money."

Is the business case for prehabilitation a "slam dunk", as some enthusiasts claim? If so how do you measure value versus volume, is value always a subjective term and can the balance between the two be addressed? How does the NHS's "internal market" compare to the US's fee for service environment? Furthermore, where are the sensible limits of prehabilitation, how far do we take it before we move forward to an operation?

This piece has been available to EBPOM London attendees since it was first recorded in the earlier part of the year. For exclusive access to other similar pieces now and in the future please visit
