More About the Course
Vital Signs explores commonly held beliefs about health care, leads participants through a process of “rethinking” these beliefs and explores new approaches to the future of health and health care. Participants are exposed to key areas — from business models and incentives to policy, roles, technology and data — that need rapid evolution or disruption to enable a vital, inclusive health ecosystem. Additionally, participants are challenged to consider alternatives to existing healthcare delivery models. Ultimately, participants will gain a greater appreciation for the role they can play in reimagining health and healthcare delivery.
