As the founder and managing director of the Center for Healthcare Management I am excited to announce our next Forum “Strategy in times of change” on September 12-14, 2018 at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris.

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.).

The Forum is designed for global executives in healthcare business and strategy to discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities shaping the industry. Working hand-in-hand with leading thinkers from around the world, the event provides attendees with an ideal forum for networking as well as rigorous analysis and foresight.

This year’s topic will look at “strategy in times of change” and consider macro topics and global trends in the industry as well as micro issues such as employee engagement strategies on the shop floor as they are related to health information technology and artificial intelligence. On the journey from the bird’s eye perspective to the life inside healthcare organizations the assessment of effective demand in global markets is crucial. The Forum – now in its 7th year – has been conceived to help the world’s top healthcare executives seize the moment. Previous participants rave about the interactive, content-rich and personal experience:

The draft agenda is now online.

You can read about our past forums and learn more about what global thought leaders who attended think about our style of conferencing.

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 SCOR global reinsurance and also ALLIANZ private health insurance as a new gold sponsor of the Forum; Medimpact, a leading pharmaceutical benefits provider in the United States, as a new silver sponsor and Morgan Consulting Resources as a new bronze sponsor. The department of health policy and management of Columbia University New York will sponsor the drinks for our reception and my consulting network ENJOY STRATEGY Germany will sponsor the flying buffet.
