Who should attend

EHIMP attracts participants from all areas of the healthcare value chain and guides them towards greater innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to plan and deliver health services to meet emerging global needs. The programme is aimed at health leaders who can affect innovation in their workplaces, such as executives who are at or progressing towards C-suite level at a health provider, authority or insurer, or health professionals in leading roles.

The programme is also targeted at policymakers and senior leaders from health industries such as pharma, med-tech, and IT, who are influential in the sector's innovation.

About the course

Please join us on this 4th revised edition of the EHIMP-programme which brings together executives from the entire healthcare supply chain and across countries and healthcare systems. Two modules in London and Copenhagen and online participant centered case-discussions in between.


Major forces are slowly reshaping healthcare into a truly 21st century data-driven, patient-centric paradigm. These involve a convergence of technology, organisational and policy trends. Given the mounting demands on health services from megatrends such as an ageing population and “known-unknowns” such as climate change, standing still is not an option. Around the world, health care leaders need to rethink the way services are designed and delivered. New thinking is being driven by four basic interconnected trends:

  • Growing digital connectivity (e.g. remote care, wearables, internet of things)
  • Revolution in data availability and data analytics
  • Focus on value rather than cost (e.g. value-based healthcare, risk sharing payment models)
  • “The new patient” - informed, empowered patients and co-production of innovations

While they offer huge opportunities, this landscape poses challenges to different players in the health system. Technology developers and suppliers, healthcare funders and providers, policy-makers – and us as healthcare users – need to respond. Relationships in value chains are being reshaped, new ideas about wellness are emerging. A different healthcare ecosystem is being built.

Throughout the course we examine how these forces play out at two levels:

  • Coordinating innovation and change across the value chain
  • Managing and strategising around innovation


  • Understand the emerging healthcare challenges, the complexities of health systems, how the health sector differs from other industries in relation to innovation needs and processes
  • Engage with and challenge participants from different business backgrounds and cultures across the health sector to gain new insight into your business or organisation
  • Identify opportunities for innovation and change within and across health sector organisations, including your own
  • Improve your innovative and entrepreneurial thinking
