May 11, 2017

Toron­to, ON – A con­sor­tium of lead­ing busi­ness school pro­grams, which includes the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment, today intro­duced a new quar­ter­ly jour­nal, Health Man­age­ment, Pol­i­cy and Inno­va­tion (HMPI), to address recent devel­op­ments and poten­tial solu­tions to com­plex­i­ties with­in the dynam­ic glob­al health sec­tor.

“Our goal is to har­ness the insights of schol­ars, busi­ness lead­ers and pol­i­cy­mak­ers to sup­port pub­lic and pri­vate orga­ni­za­tions tack­ling health care chal­lenges, both in the Unit­ed States and beyond,” said William Mitchell, HMPI’s edi­tor-in-chief and pro­fes­sor at the Rot­man School. “HMPI focus­es on inno­va­tion, sup­ply chains, glob­al health, strat­e­gy, entre­pre­neur­ship, pol­i­cy, incen­tives, and oth­er top­ics with impli­ca­tions for man­age­r­i­al deci­sion-mak­ing today.”

The first issue fea­tures arti­cles by schol­ars and thought lead­ers such as Regi­na Her­zlinger, Har­vard Busi­ness School; Dr. Kevin A. Schul­man, Duke Uni­ver­si­ty; Kris­tiana Raube, Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia Berke­ley; and R. Lawrence Van Horn, Van­der­bilt Uni­ver­si­ty, as well as Dr. Bill Frist, the for­mer U.S. Sen­ate major­i­ty leader, and Kevin A. Lobo, a grad­u­ate of the Rot­man Exec­u­tive MBA pro­gram who is chair­man of Stryk­er Cor­po­ra­tion.

HMPI is spon­sored by the Busi­ness School Alliance for Health Man­age­ment (BAHM), an inter­na­tion­al con­sor­tium of 16 top MBA pro­grams with a health sec­tor focus. Build­ing on HMPI’s ini­tial 2012 launch by an edi­to­r­i­al team led by David Dra­nove at North­west­ern Uni­ver­si­ty, the online jour­nal con­tains short essays and research pieces curat­ed by HMPI’s edi­tors and edi­to­r­i­al board.

“The relaunch of this online jour­nal ties into BAHM’s efforts to advance excel­lence in health man­age­ment edu­ca­tion, schol­ar­ship and thought lead­er­ship,” said Schul­man, BAHM’s pres­i­dent and an HMPI author and edi­tor. “We look for­ward to work­ing not only with our mem­ber schools but oth­er lead­ers of the health sec­tor to address the press­ing chal­lenges faced here and in glob­al health­care mar­kets.”

The Rot­man School of Man­age­ment is locat­ed in the heart of Canada’s com­mer­cial and cul­tur­al cap­i­tal and is part of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to, one of the world’s top 20 research uni­ver­si­ties. The Rot­man School fos­ters a new way to think that enables our grad­u­ates to tack­le today’s glob­al busi­ness and soci­etal chal­lenges.  For more infor­ma­tion, vis­it
