Detailed Programme

The boot camp consists of two stages and takes place in two locations – London and Leuven. Throughout the boot camp, you’ll explore frameworks and concepts and apply them to your idea.  As you build your business plan, world-class industry experts and academics will challenge it – helping you turn it into a robust, commercial offer.

The boot camp includes three content blocks:

  • Value Creation in Health Markets
  • Value Capture
  • Value Delivery

After each block, you’ll have the opportunity to refine your idea with the help of coaches and experts. You’ll also present your idea to your fellow participants and get valuable feedback.

Week one: London
In this first week you’ll focus on problem solving. You’ll assess the full potential impact of your technology or idea and how it creates better and healthier lives. And you’ll carry out field research to assess the value of your idea – how it could benefit patients and improve process.  You’ll work on your communication skills by testing yourself in the Imperial Impact LabTM.

Week two: Leuven
The second week of the boot camp takes place in Leuven with a.o. a visit to Health HouseTM. This inspirational setting is the ideal place to explore cutting-edge health technology enterprise and its ecosystems. You’ll focus on designing your business plan and learning how to secure the best sources of funding for your venture.

At the end of the boot camp, you’ll pitch your final idea in front of a Dragon’s Den style jury of venture capitalists, business school professors and health sector experts.

  1. An IT roadmap for hospitals: one size does not fit all

    Digital technologies have become indispensable in the healthcare sector. They help to achieve better and cheaper healthcare. Policymakers are focusing strongly on eHealth and collaboration between the various players in the healthcare ecosystem. Belgian hospitals have already spent too long using IT purely as a support tool, however, with all the associated consequences. It is essential for them not to miss the boat. Professor Brecht Cardoen and professor Bjorn Cumps explain how a tool which was developed in collaboration with hospitals and their stakeholders can help.
  2. Hospital networks: quo vadis?

    Hospitals are increasingly joining forces in networks of different types, sometimes with other healthcare players. This is an unmistakable trend, but forming networks is also an important strategic decision. How can hospitals ensure the right decisions are taken, both today and tomorrow, guaranteeing a robust, resilient and versatile organisation in the long run? Changes are rapidly succeeding one another, but who knows what healthcare will be like fifteen years from now and what the best set-up would be for these networks? No one can predict the future. However, despite all the uncertainties, a scenario analysis can help in the decision-making process.
