Healthcare Management & Policy
Healthcare Management & Policy
Doha & New York
Through a series of academic lectures, field visits, and interactions with senior healthcare leaders coming from diverse backgrounds, this Specialization aims to deepen comprehension of complex managerial and policy challenges that health systems face and equip students with the cutting-edge tools that will allow them to make better decisions and guide their organizations through the realities faced in today’s health systems.
In Doha, we will focus on Healthcare Management and will introduce foundational frameworks for understanding the interactions between the key players of a healthcare system. We will explore the key strategic decisions of healthcare organizations, discuss how operational process design can function as a key enabler of strategy and introduce approaches that can guide the development of patient-centric services.
We will also examine how digital transformation in healthcare is driving change and innovation in both managerial decision-making and delivery and explore the role of entrepreneurial efforts.
Throughout these discussions we will emphasize the key challenges of leadership in modern healthcare organizations and how to succeed in empowering employees. Our discussions will be based on examples from different healthcare systems worldwide and we will further observe in action several of the discussed concepts and tools at leading local organizations. In New York, we will focus on Healthcare Policy and explore its utility, components and indicators. Further, we will cover the basis and principles of health economics and the incentives to pay for care delivery. We will also discuss how the healthcare sector is financed from private and governmental resources, and how to set priorities and forecast expenditures.
The economic evaluation methods in healthcare will have their share in this week as we discuss the measurement and valuing of benefits of new treatments. Finally, we will discuss the future of healthcare, in particular machine learning and its expected paradigm shift in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
Throughout this week, we will organize visits to major healthcare providers in New York, where senior leaders will deliver presentations and discuss their experience in leading those institutions.
