We have organized forums in cities around the world, using an interactive approach that relies on real-time and team-based content capturing and evaluation supported by various moderation and visualization techniques. The acquired knowledge and insights lead to fresh and promising approaches to longstanding and unresolved challenges in management. They have also helped to achieve political and regulatory changes globally.

Annual business forums Focused forums
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.
This forum offers the opportunity for me to bring some new ideas to the processes and methods that we would use as we begin to develop our strategic innovations that we want to embed within our company.
I think the forum provides a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and interaction which is both interesting and unique. It’s a much more interactive type of forum.
… Literally every time somebody opens their mouth here – it’s a good use of my time.
… But to have ideas articulated so well and so meaningfully and in such a short period of time – I think is really powerful.
Thank you for the tremendous hospitality. You did a great job at focusing the group. Please let me know if I can do anything to help you as we go forward and I appreciate the work that your Center for Health Care Management is doing.
The topics were very diverse, the agenda was very well put together, the panel discussions, the workshops have generated a lot of interesting discussions. Everybody is participating. It was a very valuable couple of days. I really enjoyed it. I’m very glad to be here. It was excellent.
This conference is a great opportunity to meet international experts with different backgrounds and discuss current, relevant topics; share experiences and develop new ideas for current and future business opportunities.
The exchange was fantastic, and I learned a great deal in just 2.5 days. What I found most useful is hearing the international perspectives on how to improve patient care and how to really move technology and systems all for the betterment of the people we serve.
I really enjoyed this conference for many reasons: the most because it is a very interesting group of people that have been brought together by Katharina and her team to share ideas across globally. And I liked the format, the way that we present some information and then sit down to really brainstorm about it to come up with some common ideas. I’m a big fan.
I liked most the special format of the forum: I was pleased to have so much dialogue and exchanges. It was very pleasant to experience that people are all very open, participating and authentic.
It’s really been a pleasure to meet thought leaders from all over the world and learn about what’s different in their health systems and also the common challenges we face. I learned a lot from others about ways they’ve found to tackle those challenges and things I can take home and apply in my work.
It was a really good mix of people in various fields and therefore, we had a very different conversation than the ones I have had in previous conferences.
The most exciting is that there are lots of senior management and leadership people coming from various industries. We contribute and we share experiences which gives people a very different perspective. So I am thrilled to be here, I’m really delighted to be here. It is way beyond my expectation.
This is the 6th forum that I have attended and I can’t say that there is one that I like better than another, but I love them all. What I get out of it is having so many different mindsets, skillsets, professions in the healthcare industry represented in the same room. There is no other meeting like this.
It is a great event where we can bring together different thinkers and leaders in healthcare and management and clinical work to share new ideas, build new relationships, and network. Although I work in a multinational it is for me a really good opportunity to work with people from very different backgrounds and even more diverse backgrounds that I would often even get at my workplace. So that opportunity for diverse thinking among diverse people is the key reason why I like to come to any of these events.
The unique thing about the forum is that it draws together senior physicians, clinicians, executives and industry. That’s not a diverse set of opinions that you get involved in very often. To be able to talk about things that are globally applied but with that industry audience is something I have not experienced before.
The most interesting part was to meet people with such different backgrounds from different companies, organizations and different skills. And I learned a lot about healthcare management because I’m from the operating part of the business and that was really enlightening for me.
This meeting was very interesting because we created new relationships between different countries and we have different perspectives about topics which are relevant now and probably also in the future for healthcare management. Thanks to Katharina Janus and all the team.
What I enjoyed the most is a comfortable, safe place for the free exchange of ideas amongst a diverse group of people with deep experience and vast knowledge in healthcare.
The diversity of experience, the different countries we’ve got, the diversity of topics going from how does the French health system work and what pilots they are looking at, to hand hygiene technology, and how to get employees to change how they think about technology.
This is the event for high-level content and a great exchange with other stakeholders in the healthcare industry.
I really enjoyed the interaction with the group and meeting very interesting, fascinating people who are all very passionate about healthcare and making sure that we exchange ideas so that we can make improvements to how we provide healthcare – whether it is in the US, in Europe, Asia or the Middle East. It is a wonderful place to collaborate and to learn about newly emerging ideas in healthcare.
The ability to dig into some other areas of healthcare was very interesting for me and it is always a result of great organization, a great mix of people, location – so very happy with the conference.
It was an excellent forum for exchange amongst different health care professionals from around the world. The exchange and discussions were highly insightful and brought together different industry perspectives and latest trends in healthcare management. I truly enjoyed the healthcare forum.
