Launching the Center’s 8th Global Business Forum today

The last two weeks flew by with preparations for our 8th Global Business Forum “Money and people – the currencies of healthcare” and inspiring meetings with our global partners in Germany, the US and Switzerland. New Focused Forums in Madrid, Los Angeles and New York are on our horizon while leaves are starting to fall in the City of Lights and summer sun is still enlightening our spirits.

In the weeks before our annual forum interactions with participants, speakers and moderators become a regular routine. And tonight, we finally kick off our 8th get-together at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris. While efforts in these days are pulling on all our resources it makes us proud to hear from previous participants that they “cannot recommend the forum highly enough. It is a thought provoking and solution finding forum that brings together the doers and shakers of the health community and it is a fabulous networking opportunity.” Thanks to Dr. Raphaela Kitson-Pantano for her credits!

New partners are continuously joining the community we have built over the last ten years. I’m excited to announce that H4D (Health for Development) has recently become a partner of our forum and will provide insights into innovative approaches to remote consultation for better access to care. This week we designed a tailor-made executive training on integrated care at the Columbia Global Center in Paris for eHealth Africa. We learned a lot about the daily challenges they face in their work and are excited to have them join us as well.

Please check out the final agenda. As healthcare paradigms are shifting new strategies and players are entering the market. Be prepared!

Please stay tuned for any updates @HCMatColumbia and @katharinajanus!

Thanks to our new partners and supporters:
