    The US Navy Surgeon General presented a talk on the US Navy experience in moving toward value-based care at the 5th Latin American Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in São Paulo, Brazil, October 14, 2019.

    The Forum brings together healthcare professionals from across Latin America to share best practices and exchange experiences regarding the provision of healthcare.

    Vice Admiral C. Forrest Faison, III, Surgeon General of the US Navy, spoke on the Navy’s experience with delivering value based care by moving practitioners out of the clinics to provide healthcare to sailors where they work, building patient loyalty through success defined by patient goals and leveraging mobile technology to increase flexibility and convenience for patients.

    “Taking care of Sailors and their families, changing how we do that to remain relevant, engaged and involved in their care. Providing care that will result in better outcomes aligned to what they consider important in their lives and ultimately better outcomes allow them to do what they need to do to protect our nation,” said Vice Admiral Faison. “Value based care and the other things we have done, will allow me to look into the eyes of every mother and every father of every sailor serving in uniform today and tell them, we will care for your son or daughter and do all in our power to keep them healthy and one day, return them home safely and alive.”

    The US Navy regularly cooperates with partners across Latin America in providing medical support and humanitarian assistance. A few recent examples include US Navy medical practitioners working side-by-side with their Brazilian Navy counterparts on Brazil Riverine humanitarian medical missions, promotion of medical readiness in Honduras and Peru and, along with partners and non-governmental organizations, staffing the hospital ship USNS Comfort which has been operating in Latin America and the Caribbean since it left port in June.
