Is there a dearth of healthcare innovation in the US, and healthcare management training in particular? Well, you might be tempted to say, it’s harder than you think. Right? Regina Herzlinger, a Harvard Business School professor, wrote in HBR a couple of weeks ago about the problem of innovation in the industry, which accounts for about a fifth of US GDP. Productivity in healthcare DROPPED an average of 0.8% per year between 1990 and 2007. I tend to rant about the rampant waste in America’s health system. I’ll take a back seat and let Ms. Herzlinger tempt you with more tempered prose: HBR Article link.
