Business School (HBS) announces Emerging
Issues in Healthcare, a new executive education program taking place
March 3-5, 2013 on the HBS campus. This unique program will examine
forces that are shaping the future of healthcare and how leaders can
prepare their organizations for inevitable changes in the industry.
Emerging Issues in Healthcare will be led by faculty from across
Harvard University. The program will be presented in a unique format
that brings together diverse perspectives and expertise for engaging and
thoughtful dialogue among participants.
"Emerging Issues in Healthcare is part of a comprehensive
portfolio of healthcare industry-specific executive education programs
that are part of the HBS
Healthcare Initiative," said Das Narayandas, James J. Hill Professor
of Business Administration and Senior Associate Dean and Chair of
Executive Education and Publishing. "The program's broad and inclusive
approach to addressing a range of issues will create a dynamic learning
environment that is a hallmark of the HBS experience."
The program curriculum explores five
key areas: science, regulatory and finance reform, new technology,
obesity and service innovation.
"Participants will learn from each other and the faculty about the
ramifications of health issues like rising obesity rates," said Richard
Bohmer, MD, Professor of Management Practice and faculty chair of Emerging
Issues in Healthcare.
"Advances in science and technology are changing how we deliver
healthcare. This program will help pull these major influences together
for a larger view of the changing healthcare landscape and what leaders
in the industry can do to respond to changes."
Faculty will facilitate an open dialogue among participants that
encourages debate and discussion about critical healthcare issues,
complemented by HBS's renowned case study method.
"We are expanding the learning experience by including open forum-style
sessions that will generate a very lively and engaging dialogue on some
very knotty issues in healthcare," said Bohmer.
"We will probe issues in a way that will allow participants to hear
different perspectives and explore novel ideas and solutions that might
address these very important issues."
This new program is designed for individuals with more than ten years of
experience in either clinical or nonclinical roles. Participants are
welcome from all sectors of the healthcare industry including care
delivery, insurance, biotech, pharma, devices, diagnostics and
