The executive program on innovative solutions in health policy, technology and management: University of California, Berkeley, the King’s Fund, London and UPF’s CRES, Barcelona
GHLF energizes health care executives/leaders through cutting edge, globally-sourced solutions and debates with experts on health care policy, technology and management issues. The Global Health Leadership Forum is currently accepting applications and nominations for its 2012 cycle. Participants have lauded the wisdom in health economics which informs most of the topics. The network of past alumni includes 200 health care leaders from 53 countries over 8 years. Application is on-line through the website.
Note that we are offering a total of $2000 discount off of the Berkeley and London sessions if registration is received and paid for by February 15, 2012. Also, due to enthusiastic feedback, we are again offering an optional Kaiser Permanente field trip directly after the GHLF—April 22-25, 2012. Save time and travel costs; discount from GHLF and KP for attending both.
Although most participants have chosen to go to both sessions and receive an earned certificate, applicants may choose to go to one session only.
Focus includes recent innovations in insurance design and payment methods, delivery, care integration, public-private investment partnerships, technology solutions for tele-health and consumer engagement, lessons in health systems strengthening from Asia and the Americas, and leadership styles and strategies. The session includes field trips to two innovative healthcare sites and an option to visit Kaiser Permanente.
