Word From The Editors

On behalf of the editorial team – Regina Herzlinger (Harvard), Kristiana Raube (Berkeley), Kevin Schulman (Duke), Lawrence Van Horn (Vanderbilt), and myself (University of Toronto) – I am delighted to introduce the relaunch of HMPI. HMPI’s goal is simple: We will draw from the research and experience of scholars and practicing leaders to provide relevant insights for public and private organizations in the international health sector. Our articles will address management practice, health sector policy, and health sector teaching. In advancing practice across these areas, HMPI will publish work on innovation, supply chains, global health, strategy, entrepreneurship, policy, incentives, and other topics in the dynamic health care sector. HMPI will also regularly publish and highlight teaching materials. Along with our articles, which will focus on key implications for practice, we will link to additional background materials that provide rich depth and context.

HMPI is sponsored by the Business School Alliance for Health Management (BAHM). BAHM is an international consortium of MBA programs with a health sector focus. In achieving the goal of providing relevant insights for practicing managers, HMPI is central to BAHM’s mission of harnessing our collective energy, intellect, and resources to solve today’s healthcare problems and address opportunities to advance health care that are emerging around the world.
