Consumer Driven Healthcare Innovations

May 19, 2010 marked the second highly successful lecture of the Scienta Health Series

Harvard Business School Professor Regina Herzlinger, dubbed "Godmother” of consumer-driven healthcare by Money, delivered a provocative and eye-opening talk on the current state of the North American healthcare system and what is needed to initiate much-needed reforms.

While happy that healthcare will become available to millions of uninsured Americans, Professor Herzlinger fears many measures in recent U.S. healthcare legislation will further boost already excessive healthcare costs. She argues the only way to bring down costs and make healthcare more readily available to Americans is to allow them to choose and purchase their own health plans.

In an interview with Andrew Coyne for Maclean′s Magazine, Professor Herzlinger expounded on her views on North American healthcare. To read the Maclean′s article, please click here: Regina Herzlinger – Macleans May 2010.

Professor Herzlinger′s talk drew attendance from various fields, including healthcare practitioners, Ministry of Health officials, and business leaders. To see photographs of the event, please click here: Herzlinger event May 2010

Your Organization’s Health – a Wise Investment

Downtown BusinessIf you genuinely believe your people are your most important asset, you will know you cannot afford for them to be giving less than their best.

Presenteeism in your organization – physically at work but delivering impaired judgment, supervision, quality, productivity or customer service – is a serious hidden drag on your competitiveness.

Progressive leaders know it pays to have healthier employees. Direct benefits include reduced healthcare costs, improved attendance and productivity. Indirect and harder to measure are the effects of poor lifestyle habits — lack of sleep, stress, poor nutrition, inactivity — on critical thinking, decision-making, customer interaction, creativity and more.
