In recent days, due to the Covid-19 emergency, our health system has been called to respond to the strong pressure of the drastic increase in demand. Although the great efforts made by all the actors involved have reduced the dramatic impact of this emergency, the need for a profound restructuring of care and assistance services is now evident. Among the organizational models that address this need, Value-Based Health Care (VBHC) is among the most discussed. The determining factors for the success of the model are the alignment of all the stakeholders on a common goal, namely the value for the patient and the integration between the providers. There are many studies in the literature that focus on the ongoing transformation of the health systems of many countries into Val ue-Based systems, a clear picture does not yet emerge regarding the issues of implementation and the resulting benefits. Starting from the trend-starting articles on Value-Based Health Care, the work aims to create a theoretical framework through which to explain the advantages deriving from the application of the model compared to the current health emergency.
