ABSTRACT: As a follow-up to a 2017 global study on governance, interviews with four health care leaders spotlight how university hospitals and aligned universities can bridge different cultures to promote collaboration and advance innovation within their institutions. The leaders describe ideas they use to
strengthen alignment across clinical care, research and education as well as create environments that stimulate entrepreneurial performance and results.
As their institutions face the impact of national health care reform, a selective portfolio approach featuring centers of excellence is deployed to serve key patient groups, achieve financial goals and withstand competition. These thought leaders share why it is critical to develop the next generation of leaders and provide medical education techniques adapted to new clinical practices and team-based learning styles.
