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. 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.
