In both developed and developing economies, health care has become a top national priority, as demand for quality and universal access collides with stressed finances, political polarization, and heightened social demands. The need to deploy resources rapidly and effectively while improving outcomes and controlling costs has never been greater. At the same time, innovative ventures have emerged in health care delivery, insurance, and technology in India, Europe, Latin America, Africa, the United States, and other regions across the globe, often aligning the public and private sectors. These innovations represent both business opportunities and important contributions to society.
Business Innovations in Global Health Care is a new program that will enable entrepreneurs and health care leaders to examine these ventures and apply them in their own countries and around the world.
Illustrating the importance of effective management and innovative models, this leadership development program compares and contrasts global health care ventures that "do well" and "do good." You will acquire a deeper understanding of how to manage the risks, complexities, and challenges associated with implementing new health care models around the world.
This new offering features a range of international case studies, small group exercises, and dynamic discussions. You will examine effective models of successful health care organizations in developing and developed countries, including those that created breakthroughs in telemedicine, drug testing, integrated clinics and pharmacies, and patient communities.
Business Innovations in Global Health Care is designed for senior executives of large established health care organizations, as well as health care consultants, investors, and managers. Individuals and teams are invited to apply.
