What is 3V?

The Oxford Centre for Triple Value Healthcare is a small social enterprise that supports health systems achieve optimal outcomes for populations and individuals given the resources available.

We do this through …

The Dissemination of Knowledge
Learning and Skills Development Programme
Deploying Solutions

… and in doing so support health systems to increase Triple Value (population, technical and personal value), thereby helping to improve outcomes and make better use of the resources available.

We focus on the issues faced by populations with common healthcare needs, irrespective of whether the people in need are already known to the health system.

Our Focus

The issues we focus on are determined by where opportunities for the greatest value improvement in a health system can be found, for example:

  • disease groups, such as people with cardiovascular disease

  • population groups, such as older people

  • healthcare system challenges, such as managing urgent care

About 50% of any surplus we make will go to good causes. We are open to suggestions about what those good causes could be. Our preference is to support organisations in countries with developing economies to adopt Triple Value.

We will report annually on the ways in which we have supported good causes.

The remaining 50% of surplus will be divided equally between investing in R&D and shared among staff as part of our aim to operate as a mutual.
