Who we are | ICHOM – International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement

The people behind ICHOM

We are grounded in a theoretical framework

Our approach is built on a solid framework developed at Harvard Business School by Professors Michael E. Porter and Elizabeth O. Teisberg. In 2006, Porter and Teisberg wrote the well-known book, Redefining Health Care, which outlines the argument for using health outcomes data to redefine the nature of competition in health care.

We are rooted in strategy

One of our founding organizations, The Boston Consulting Group, was the first to introduce competitive strategy to the business world. Their team offers more than 50 years of experience, a professional culture, and a rigorous approach to addressing challenges.

Code of Business Conduct

Our Code of Business Conduct (COBC) sets out basic requirements for conduct by all who work at and for ICHOM. It has been designed to reinforce ICHOM’s culture, acting as a guide to support ICHOM staff in taking decisions in our day-to-day work with colleagues, clients and partners and to show our external partners the principles and practices that underpin how ICHOM carries out its work. Finally, it serves as a foundation for our policies, standard operating procedures and guidelines. The COBC can be found by following this link.
