New programme targets healthcare management in Qatar


(MENAFN- Gulf Times) A new executive education programme co-designed by HEC Paris in Qatar and Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar – both members of Qatar Foundation – will target healthcare professionals with the aim of driving systems-level management expertise and accelerating patient outcomes in Qatar and across the region.
The Executive Certificate in Healthcare Management and Policy has been designed to optimise practitioner understanding of effective healthcare strategy, systems, operations, and innovation at an integrated, systems level. In essence, it delivers system-wide efficiencies and enhanced outcomes for patients in the region.
Healthcare leaders and decision-makers participating in the programme will take two five-day modules beginning January 2022. The first module is delivered in Doha and focuses on healthcare management, exploring critical leadership challenges in modern organisations and strategies for empowering employees. This session introduces foundational frameworks for interaction between healthcare system players, strategic decision making, operational process design as a strategy enabler and approaches to guide development of patient-centric services. It will also examine how digital transformation drives healthcare innovation and explore the role of entrepreneurial efforts.
The second module is delivered in New York, where participants will focus on the function, components and indicators of healthcare policy and the basis and principles of health economics and incentives to pay for care delivery. It looks at healthcare financing, priorities and forecast expenditure as well as the measurement and evaluation of new treatments benefits. The future of healthcare, and the role of machine learning in optimising diagnosis and treatment of diseases will also be explored. The session will also feature visits to major healthcare providers in New York.
The programme concludes with an experiential learning project that sees participants work closely with a real-world healthcare organisation to solve a specific managerial or policy challenge.
HEC Paris in Qatar dean, Dr Pablo Martin de Holan, said:“Healthcare spending frequently exceeds 10% of advanced economies' GDPs yet does not necessarily translate into satisfactory levels of population health. These systems often struggle to ensure timely and affordable access to quality care.”
Weill Cornell Medicine in Qatar dean Dr Javaid Sheikh described the new programme as a significant step forward in providing Qatar's healthcare executives with comprehensive and integrated knowledge that spans all aspects of customer-centric healthcare delivery and innovation, as well as the operational, management and policy dimensions of sustainable growth.
