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
This programme will be delivered in a hybrid format, combining traditional in-person and virtual training. You can choose the best option that suits your learning objectives.
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 strategizing around innovation
You will explore how your organisation’s position within the emerging healthcare ecosystem might evolve. What interdependencies are critical, how might the balance of power change, what are the implications of innovations and how can I manage? We focus both on short-term disruptions and longer-term evolutionary trends which impact business models.
Healthcare is a complex system with complicated value chains. To understand the changes going on in your own sector there is much to gain from identifying the innovations and restructuring going on elsewhere in the value chain or wider environment. This course helps you achieve this by bringing together participants from across the healthcare ecosystem.
In addition to the lectures and case studies, the programme includes an Executive Challenge component where participants bring their own relevant strategic entrepreneurship or operational business challenge.
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
