The “Hospital Management: The Simulation” online programme is a realistic exercise that effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving healthcare environment organized by SDA Bocconi School of Management in partnership with Columbia University.
As the pace of change in healthcare continues to accelerate, managers must be leaders, adept at navigating the changing marketplace, and legal/regulatory and clinical worlds. The core objective of the Hospital Management Simulation is to provide a unique opportunity to experience the pressing challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making of a competitive multi-hospital environment.
This simulation is a concrete and realistic exercise that effectively stimulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving, now more than ever, hospital environment.
The simulation will take place on the following days:
1 December 2021: 13.00-20.00 CET
2 December 2021: 13.00-20.00 CET
3 December 2021: 13.00-20.00 CET
4 December 2021: 13.00-20.00 CET
SPCC is joining this simulation as part of the “Improving Efficiency in Cancer Care: 2020-2021 Project” and will offer to 20 selected applicants the possibility to enroll free of charge to this programme.
“Hospital Management: The Simulation” a programme by
Improving Efficiency in Cancer Care: 2020-2021 Project has been developed by SPCC (Sharing Progress in Cancer Care) in collaboration with All.Can and SDA Bocconi School of Management.
The scope of the project is to develop a collaborative research and educational project targeted at heads of clinics and healthcare professionals on cancer care efficiency.
The project objectives are the following:
1. To build an international curriculum developed thanks to the organization of a series of educational webinars (started in December 2020 on “Spotlights on Improving Efficiency in Cancer Care”. The webinars are dedicated to the development of efficiency projects in different geographical areas in the world, leveraging previous contents by All.Can, ESO and SPCC
2. To develop a review paper on methodologies to evaluate outcomes in the field of cancer care efficiency. The efficiency concept will be considered and measured from a systemic, population and individual health perspective. It will be built on previous research work conducted by IHE (The Swedish Institute for Health Economics) and All.Can.
3. To select three ongoing programmes with a focus on efficiency in cancer care (e.g. PROCHE) and scale those up in the clinics.
4. To assess the impact of selected projects and align them with the All.Can efficiency definition metrics and inform with updates.
5. To engage with external stakeholders and policy makers on evidence-based recommendations resulting from the paper.
