​​​Leading Better Value Care (LBVC) is one of the programs that is accelerating value based healthcare in NSW. It involves clinicians, networks and organisations working together on high-impact initiatives to improve outcomes and experiences for people with specific conditions.

The first eight initiatives were selected for Tranche One in 2016 and implementation started in 2017-18. They are:

Osteoarthritis chronic care program Osteoporosis re-fracture prevention Chronic heart failure Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Diabetes mellitus Diabetes high risk foot services Falls in hospital Renal supportive care

In 2017 local health districts nominated five more initiatives which are being implemented from 2019-20:
