Scientific discoveries, next-generation technology solutions, medical advances, payment reform, and new models have the potential to dramatically transform health care delivery. Staying at the forefront of innovation requires constant vigilance, and for health care leaders, it requires an understanding of the latest opportunities and challenges, as well as their potential impact. In this highly interactive program, you will engage with Harvard University faculty as you discuss topics ranging from stem cell therapies and the obesity epidemic to accountable care organizations (ACOs) and technology-based care.
Through joint exploration with faculty and industry peers, participants will identify key issues emerging in the health care industry. By exploring these ideas with colleagues you will be better equipped to form a vision and plan for the future of your organization.
The nature of this program is to examine the latest technological, scientific, organizational, and financial innovations in health care through a series of real-world case studies, relevant lectures, and dialogue. This new HBS offering explores five core areas: regulatory and finance reform, new science, reconfiguration of health care service models, managing innovation, and new technology.
Emerging Issues in Health Care is designed for experienced clinical and nonclinical senior leaders across the health care industry, including health care systems, community and regional hospitals, academic medical centers, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), and insurance companies. This program also is appropriate for senior executives of large established companies in the health care technology and equipment, pharmaceutical, and medical device sectors.
