Why this programme?

What is the added value of following the online 'From idea to Health Business' programme?

You have an innovative idea that could transform the healthcare industry. Now you need to nurture it, develop it and take it to market. In this online programme, you’ll learn how to turn your idea – whether it’s for a new medical device, drug, organisational model or process – into a sustainable business model that meets a need in the healthcare sector.

You’ll examine your idea from every angle and determine its potential to become a successful business. You’ll explore who your stakeholders are, what needs your business will meet – and how you can make your offer stand out. You’ll then bring this information together to form your ‘health idea selfie’ – a business plan that will help you to professionally present your idea.

This is an online journey that you study at your own pace. When you successfully complete the programme, you’ll gain a certificate.

This programme is a partnership between the Health Sciences & Business Institute of KU Leuven and Vlerick Business School – and Imperial College London. It’s sponsored by EIT Health – that aims to stimulate and professionalise entrepreneurship in our life sciences and health innovation ecosystems.

Vlerick expertise in Healthcare Management

  1. Medicines: how much should they cost?

    Although medical progress is allowing us to treat more and more diseases, innovative medicines tend to be expensive. Expenses are rising constantly in the healthcare sector as a result, putting accessibility and affordability under pressure. Which criteria does the Belgian Commission for Reimbursement of Medicines apply and what could be improved? These questions are answered in a study based on RIZIV data, in the framework of the Roche Chair at the Vlerick Healthcare Management Centre.
  2. Flexible working in hospitals: how to make it a success

    Flexible working is all the rage these days, and hospitals can't escape the trend either. The white paper ‘Flexible working in hospitals: OM and HRM perspective’ by our MINOZ research centre is the fruit of last year's efforts. It examines what flexible working means for the organisation and the employee, how the two perspectives can be brought into balance and which forms of flexible working are relevant for hospitals. Illustrated with practical examples, it offers food for thought for organisations which would like to introduce flexible working themselves.
