Health System Portfolio Management: How decisions are made, why we should care and what we should know (Conference in English) By Nick Sanders, Associate Professor of Management, Technology and Strategy at Grenoble Ecole de Management.
Why are some breakthrough, lifesaving treatments not offered by a health system while others are? How can effective management of decision-making within national systems address the questions ‘my health’ and ‘our health’ as a unified and equitable system objective?
Health is a universal need that has infinite and axial demand, whilst systems that supply this demand have limited resource. This conference will explore challenges and constraints faced by decision makers in Health Systems. It will introduce key methods and models that shape decision-making processes within health systems, decisions that are often impacted by social, political, economic, cultural and demographic dynamics.
