Initiative for Health Systems Innovation
The MIT Sloan researchers investigating healthcare solutions have a common belief—that fixing health care is as much about good management as it is about good medicine. Members of the MIT Sloan faculty are integrating operations management, applied economics, organizational behavior, system dynamics, accounting, marketing, and finance into their solutions, and their innovations are having an impact on both the management and delivery of healthcare.
Through this pioneering thought leadership, HSI serves as a valuable resource to the worldwide health industry and accelerates the creation of systems that proactively manage health and create high-quality health outcomes at affordable costs.
