Executive Health Innovation Management Programme

To redesign a healthcare system fit for the 21st century we must change how its leaders manage innovation, define strategies, take decisions and implement them.

Making Innovation Happen

Providing new insights and proven frameworks, the Executive Health Innovation Management Programme prepares top executives to face the demands of the evolving healthcare challenges—in Europe and beyond. The programme draws on the outstanding faculties of three top business schools to create an enlightening, academically rigorous, and highly practical learning experience.

Precision medicine, value-based healthcare, patient-centric care. These are just some of the innovations that promise to reshape healthcare in the next 20 years. But healthcare is only slowly and partially embracing such innovations. Why is this the case?

First, these innovations are not just new technologies or new ways of organising and financing healthcare – they require the combination of both. This makes them inherently complex and challenging. And because of this, these innovations cannot be introduced by single players in the healthcare sector. They require collaboration across healthcare value chains. Take value-based healthcare for example. This offers great potential to deliver high quality and affordable healthcare but it can only be realized through close coordination between multiple parts of the intricate value chain – technology suppliers, healthcare providers, and payers. The insight and expertise of all these players is needed to develop new value-based healthcare models.

Designing and delivering 21st century healthcare will need combinations of technical and organisational expertise from the public and private sectors to be brought together and work in close coordination.

Drawing on the latest thinking and real-life cases, EHIMP is probably the only international executive programme attracting participants from all parts of healthcare, guiding them towards greater innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to plan and deliver health services to meet emerging global needs.

"Very good programme! This is out of comfort and provocative!"
Participant 2018

What drives innovation in healthcare today? Throughout the course we focus on understanding the key drivers of innovation in healthcare – how they offer opportunities for novel solutions and smarter organisation, but also bring risks for incumbent players.  Examples include data-driven healthcare, the empowered patient, patient-centric care, digital connectivity from patients to pharma/devices and to care provider.

This programme will help participants to be true change agents and speed up this process of innovation.

The programme is offered by Imperial College Business School, UK and CBS Executive, Denmark in collaboration with IESE Business School, Spain.

Course Content

For any manager in the health sector there is no doubt that innovation is key to the future sustainability of his or her organisation. Managers already face many challenges – changes in demographics, the explosion of new technology in the med tech, life sciences and digital sectors, the need to care for populations that enjoy longer lives but increasingly experience long term chronic diseases, the need for organisational and process innovations to improve quality and safety but also maintain affordability.

The focus of the EHIMP is to prepare leaders in the healthcare sector for the future and equip them with the knowledge they need to lead the changes in the existing systems and the development of new services and solutions.

The course is delivered in three modules, each lasting a good three days. These are based at Imperial College Business School in London (modules 1 and 3) and CBS Executive at Copenhagen Business School (module 2). Each offers a mix of class sessions which explore the drivers of healthcare innovation, the key challenges for their realisation and how to address them.  We introduce you to the analytical and managerial tools that are needed. We include live case studies of practical implementation of healthcare innovations as well as company visits.

The three modules focus on inter-related sets of drivers:

  • Transformation of the value chain and its innovation challenges. Key issues include integrated care, patient-centric care, the new role of data, disruption by new players.
  • Digitalisation and its agenda for innovation in large firms and for entrepreneurs. Key issues include digital transformation from different perspectives, the role of start-ups in digital health.
  • Redesigning healthcare – the shared agenda of business and care providers. Building on lessons from modules 1 and 2, we explore the challenges and opportunities for transforming the healthcare value chain.

Class sessions are interactive and draw on the active contributions from participants on their own challenge and experiences.

In addition to classes on specific innovation areas, each module has sessions on management and leadership skills, design thinking, corporate venturing and innovation implementation.

Throughout the course you will work on your own selected ‘executive challenge’, discussed and shared with peer participants and faculty.

Online components of the course assist participants by providing the basic knowledge and help them build the best possible learning outcomes. The course also provides access to key learning material within healthcare innovation such as key reports and research literature, and videos.

A major benefit of the course is the networking possibilities it offers among senior healthcare professionals from across the value chain, from Europe and beyond.

The executive challenge gives you the opportunity to bring a relevant, real-time strategic, operational or personal business challenge to the programme and receive individual feedback and recommendations from a team of high-level peers. Participants tap into the knowledge, experience and networks of their teammates to develop an action plan. You also benefit from personalised support during preparation through a highly structured, facilitator-led problem-solving approach.

“Great insight and teamwork on the executive challenge”
