New Journal Sponsored by Top MBA Programs Tackles Critical Healthcare Management Issues

Health Management, Policy and Innovation Targets Scholars, Industry Executives and Policymakers

Raleigh, N.C.—A consortium of leading business school programs 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 tackling health care challenges, both in the United States and beyond,” said William Mitchell, HMPI’s editor-in-chief and professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Business. “

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, 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.”
