The healthcare industry, especially the delivery system, is undergoing immense changes due to internal shifts and external forces both economic and legislative. In order to improve both the delivery of care and the economics of this industry, there is a great need to learn from other industries and apply systems and processes that have been tried and tested in other sectors.
Leaders in the healthcare industry, many of whom will emerge from business schools, will need to understand the various components and stakeholders in this very complex industry and to make sense of the many moving parts in order to succeed and lead transformation. This understanding is necessary to analyze how the components along the care continuum fit together currently and, more importantly, to explore how they can be reconfigured and re-engineered to create value for the population. Guest faculty will include well respected leaders from various settings within the healthcare delivery system.
