Speaker: Jacque Mallender, international health and public policy economist and health evaluation practitioner

Is there enough money? Are we using resources well? Are we able to help those who most need it? How can we secure funds for improvement? Health and care professionals face these difficult questions on a daily basis. They know that the answers can have a direct impact on health outcomes, the experience of care for patients and staff, and ensuring that limited funds are stretched as far as possible. Can economics help to answer some of these questions? During the seminar Jacque explores the economic paradigm of the NHS, and how economics can help grow value through cycles of improvement.

Speaker: Professor Timothy Hoff, Visiting Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College; Professor of Management Health Systems and Health Policy, D’Amore-McKim School of Business, Northeastern University.

This seminar will focus on analysing several key innovation strategies health care organisations in the United States pursued in response to challenges and opportunities caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  These strategies include transforming access to care for patient populations, integration of technology into health care work flows, redefining health care workflows, and reimagining the needs and preferences of patients for their care.  Specific lessons for health care managers will be identified and discussed.  In addition, the seminar will also speculate on what the embrace of health care innovation means individually for enhancing managerial competencies and personal development moving forward.
