Come and join us for our 7th Global Forum in Paris and submit your innovation to our first INNOHACK

As the founder and managing director of the Center for Healthcare Management I am pleased to invite you to our Forum “Strategy in times of change” on September 12-14, 2018 at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris. Now in its 7th year the Center’s Forum brings together global decision-makers in an intimate setting. Previous participants rave about the interactive, content-rich and personal experience: https://goo.gl/t3f4H7

After Hamburg, Washington DC (in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente), Berlin (sponsored by the Bosch Foundation and further multinationals), and Paris we return to Columbia University’s Global Center. This year we invite proposals for an “INNOHACK” in each of the categories (to submit your idea please use the following https://goo.gl/U8nqti).

The format of our Forum is a “conf-shop”, a mix of a conference and a workshop, which is designed as an innovative context to activate the creative side of a workgroup, foster new business visions, but at the same time test their validity, select them and implement the most solid and effective ones. We will select ideas for topics and organize them into round table sessions to be addressed at the conference. The call for innovations will be open until March 31st, 2018 and selected innovators will be notified by April 30th, 2018. Get in on the discussion before you come to the conference! INNOHACK themes will be moderated by our team of global experts:

In addition, we will feature the following pre-conference hot topics:

  • Migration effects on global healthcare systems
  • “Emotional” politics and consequences on global health policy

You can read about our past forums and learn more about what global thought leaders who attended think about our style of conferencing:
The Center’s Forum was a fantastic platform to meet with national and international leaders, and to discuss best practices for overcoming challenges. It was also an excellent opportunity to discuss the larger discourses that underlie these topics, such as access to healthcare as a whole.
Peter M. Fleischut, SVP and CTO at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, USA
“The process that we have employed here in the Care-Tank allows us to be able to do a better job in identifying solutions that exist in major markets and that are applicable to other markets.”
Ron Kuerbitz, former CEO, Fresenius Medical Care North America, now CEO of agilon health, Long Beach, USA
So this forum … seems to focus more on discussions of the participants in brainstorming and defending or proposing ideas. And I think that’s a much more interactive type of forum.
Frank Maddux, CMO of Fresenius Medical Care North America
I think it (the forum) provides a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and interaction, which is both interesting and unique.
Michael Sparer, Professor, Columbia University New York
I just get knowledge that I didn’t otherwise have and I get a chance to share knowledge with people who are interested in what I’ve got to say about our experiences at Kaiser Permanente.
Murray Ross, VP of the Institute for Health Policy, Kaiser Permanente USA
It’s this wonderful opportunity to learn from others and compare notes and not be spoken to but to listen and share.
Walter Kopp, President, Medical Management Services USA
… Literally every time somebody opens their mouth here – it’s a good use of my time
Lawrence Brown, Professor, Columbia University New York
…But to have them (ideas) articulated so well and so meaningfully and in such a short period of time – I think is really powerful.
David Roye, Head of Orthopaedic Paediatric Surgery, Presbyterian Hospital New York
I highly appreciated the openness and positive tone along the meeting, which I left with a sense of partnering with the right institution, and look forward to a strengthened cooperation.
Oriol Lacorte, General Manager Iberia, Zimmer Biomet, Barcelona, Spain

This kind of conference is practical for us. It provides ideas how we organize ourselves to deliver on all three of those missions, i.e. the science level, the application of innovation in a pragmatic way and the ability to create models and systems of care delivery that allow this to be scaled across an international set of boundaries.
Frank Maddux, CMO of Fresenius Medical Care North America

Executives are invited personally and represent all stakeholder perspectives. The total number of participants is limited to ensure effective networking and matchmaking opportunities in a confidential setting. About 50% of participants join us from the United States, 40% from Europe and about 10% from Asia and the Middle East.
This year we are excited to welcome Medimpact, a leading pharmaceutical benefits provider in the United States, as a new silver sponsor of the Forum.
