Sneak Preview Kaiser Permanente’s Business Cases – Insights from a start-up leader – Secure your seat for Paris in September!

Time is limited – allocating our personal and financial resources is key. Whether you are running a business, a household or your own show you might have found yourself in the situation of reflection whether you should dedicate more time to increase the available resources (“make money”) or manage the existing budget and take care of operations (“manage your business”). If you’re raising funds for a healthcare start-up this means balancing interests between shareholders and the constraints of a start-up reality. We are excited that Angelo Moesslang, CEO of InGeneron, Boston, will provide insights into his daily business life in his keynote.

Welcoming Spectrum Therapeutics as a sponsor of the Center’s 8th Global Business Forum in Paris, announcing new sessions and speakers – come and join us!

Have you recently gone somewhere where you have never been? Have you talked to somebody who gave you a new perspective? Acquired new knowledge that changed your perception? I went to Odense, Denmark, recently to visit a greenhouse. As a hobby gardener and German quality aficionado I learned that quality standards in our Northern European neighbor country are even higher and stricter. No pesticides. No artificial anything. Chapeau!

The plants being cultivated in the beautiful countryside of Odense are cannabis plants. Since we have been researching the medical applications of cannabis for the past year, we were interested in visiting one of the major producers and were impressed. For us medical cannabis is one innovation among other drugs, devices and management approaches in healthcare. Therefore, we invited Spectrum Therapeutics to join our 8th Global Business Forum “Money and people – the currencies of healthcare” to be held on September 11-13, 2019 at the Columbia Global Center in Paris and are very excited that they will become a sponsor of our Annual Forum.

[PERSPECTIVE BY @katharinajanus & @HCMatColumbia UPDATE] Cultural sensitivity in market strategy development, 8th Forum agenda news, press & upcoming conferences

Alia iacta est – the die is cast. Europe has voted and we have a result. Landscapes are shifting, old-established values and parties are challenged (again) for the betterment of Europe’s future. And while dices will continue to be shuffled around, the future is here to stay. Who is that future and how are we going to design it responsibly? I ask “who” because it will be a people-driven movement that has already unfolded as we see well-established parties losing importance and those gaining ground that respond to future norms and values such as protecting an environment we can live in healthy & happily. I ask “how” because I experience recently that the face-to-face exchange regains importance in multi-cultural contexts. People talk to each other again.

You can download the original French version here.

Katharina Janus, the global healthcare domain expert, has set up her base camp in Paris. She is specialized in three areas of expertise: the development of strategies for large multinationals, the organization of professional encounters and conferences, and healthcare market access in many countries. In conversation with Katharina Janus, president of the Center for Healthcare Management.

Do you prefer to be called Ms. Manager or Madame Professor?

Today a successful professor always has to have the qualities of a good manager, but not every manager necessarily has to become a professor. So, I prefer Madame Professor which I believe I became as a result of my creation of new knowledge while always pursuing applied research that has value in practice and for the betterment of people’s care.

[PERSPECTIVE BY @katharinajanus] On Europe: a thought that needs to become a feeling

As I am preparing to hold a conference in London next week I am getting increasingly sentimental and rational at the same time. Brexit has not even seen its aftermath – we are dealing with the before and ever continuing situation of turmoil in which a bank transfer from France can easily take a week if it is executed at all, and then only in Euro because wiring British Pound has become – it seems – like wiring Renminbi. We’re on the best way back to medieval age and European leaders are happily sailing towards doomsday. When leaders don’t know any more raise your voice: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has,” said Margaret Mead, a 20th century role-model and character. She was both a student of civilization and an exemplar of it. To a public of millions, she brought the central insight of cultural anthropology: that varying cultural patterns express an underlying human unity.

Enlighten Yourself this September in the City of Lights – Registration for the Center’s 8th Business Forum is now open

Do you know why Paris is called the City of Lights? Paris is a gorgeous city that glows every night – 20,000 light bulbs are charged with the task of lighting up the Eiffel tower and there are more than 296 illuminated sites to enjoy when the sun sets. But the legacy of Paris is much more than just sparkle and shine. Paris was the birthplace of the Age of Enlightenment and was known as a center of education and ideas throughout Europe. The city inspired poets, philosophers, engineers and scientists. The stethoscope, hairdryer and the calculator are just some of the wonders invented in Paris. Of course, the fact that Paris adopted street lighting much earlier than other cities did help the nickname of ‘City of Lights’ stick. But it has less to do with wattage and more to do with intellectual prowess.
