Leading transformation and resilience in healthcare

Leading in Times of Constant Disruption

With the global pandemic, the delivery, receiving and payment for healthcare services has changed forever. Telehealth, movement to outpatient, unclear government regulations, and artificial intelligence are but a few of the trends that have now become the norm. And the business of healthcare must change as well. Healthcare business leaders must acquire new knowledge and skills in order for their organizations to survive and thrive in these tumultuous times. The change also presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those who can embrace this time of fundamental business transformation. 

Traditional education and training have not prepared healthcare professionals for this new environment. In response to this need, we have developed this unique program. Now is the time to acquire the new knowledge and skills necessary to thrive and lead in the evolving healthcare landscape.
