Become a Distinguished Partner of the Center’s 8th Global Business Forum in Paris

We invite you to join us for the Center’s 8th Business Forum “Money and people – the currencies of healthcare” to be held on September 11-13, 2019 at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris.

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 personal connections as well as rigorous analysis and foresight.

This year we will dedicate one entire day to “people” and healthcare professionals in particular and one day to “money” and finance in general. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • What will the future shape of the healthcare workforce look like? How will roles & responsibilities change?
  • What’s the continued impact of health information technology and artificial intelligence on healthcare organizations and employee engagement?
  • Money flows where incentives are high-powered and transparency is low. Are we paying for better care or carefully designed management tools?
  • Are ventures in healthcare the adventures of the future patient?
  • Is private equity driving managerial decision-making?
  • What are trends in market access, finance and drug pricing and how does policy impact implementation strategies?
  • How can we learn cross-nationally in order to design a sustainable financial structure of a future healthcare system?

The Forum – now in its 8th 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:

Executives are invited personally and represent all stakeholder perspectives.
