Innovation in Health Care Delivery Systems

The Healthcare Initiative is a campus-wide initiative, led by the McCombs School of Business, to develop programs designed to help society address the challenges of health care delivery and to create a community of scholarship on topics at the intersection of health care delivery, innovation, and information. The McCombs School of Business has a history of being concerned about innovation. Our intent is to bring our focus on innovation, information management, organizational/operational systems, and entrepreneurship to bear on this important societal issue, to reach across disciplines by developing:

  • Events that bring together scholars from across the campus and UT System, to exchange ideas and discover ways to work together.
  • Research that connects top scholars within and beyond UT together with the local and regional health care community, to focus the latest research on today's -- and tomorrow's -- greatest challenges.
  • Partnerships that enhance our understanding of the latest challenges in health care delivery and where research and practice can come together to make a real and lasting impact.
  • Curricula that will develop tomorrow's leaders and innovators.
