Laboratoires Prodene Klint becomes sponsor of the Center’s Forum in Paris – will you join us as well?

We are excited to welcome Laboratoires Prodene Klint S.A. from Paris, France, as a new sponsor and partner of the Center’s 7th Business Forum: “Strategy in times of change”, to be held September 12-14, 2018 at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris. Spots are filling rapidly now and we hope you can join us.

As the leading Forum for global decision-makers we offer a range of inspiring topics and cases for discussion as well as the opportunity to make global connections during extended breaks, lunches and our kick-off reception on September 12. Here is a sampling of the agenda that we have planned:

September 13:
Cédric Arcos, General Director of the Ile-de-France Region will welcome us to Paris, followed by a panel that will enlighten us about current trends in France and Europe (Antoine Malone, Director at the French Hospital Federation; Etienne Minvielle, Professor and Chair at EHESP; Carlos Jaime, Country General Manager Intersystems and President of the Digital Health Commission).
A Keynote panel and moderated roundtable workshop on the impact of policy reforms/ health system changes on behavioral aspects and resulting macroeconomic indicators such as mortality and medical inflation follows which features senior insurance executives as well as country specific experts.
In the afternoon we will discuss practices of hand hygiene and obstacles for achieving compliance. The day will close with a panel on 50 years of care management and clinical integration. Global executives will question the ongoing discussion and related progress in different countries.
September 14:
We will start the day with a keynote panel and moderated roundtable workshop on employee engagement strategies as digital health and artificial intelligence become an integral part of business. Discussants provide a range of perspectives – from Germany’s former minister of health Daniel Bahr (now Allianz) to one of the leading US human resources consulting company’s founder and CEO Paula Morgan. Chris Stenzel of Kaiser Permanente California as well as Alexander Vogel of Allianz Germany will provide hands-on insights into their organizations.
The international flavor continues as we talk about cultural trends in business decision-making and their impact on effective demand before lunch. A keynote panel on profiles of healthcare systems in different countries and how to work with (and for) them will analyze incentives and risks for providers in the context of advanced analytics, consider social determinants of health in different countries and develop trends in system categories and characteristics in the afternoon. We will conclude with a model for care design in the 21st century, elaborating on how organizations drive change and systems are crossing borders.

The detailed agenda is now online.

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. 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:
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.
