Message from the Executive Director

Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation

A Voice for Value-Based Health System Decision Making

Dave Barrett

The Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation (the Centre) connects the Ivey community —students, alumni, faculty and staff — by serving as a gateway for research, education, and outreach activities between the business school and greater health care industry. This powerful alliance of key Ivey stakeholders enables the Centre to positively impact the business of delivering health care around the world through the promotion of value-based health system decision making. The Centre strives to be a provocative thought leader in the application of business strategies and innovative processes to enhance the efficiency of health systems and value delivered to patients.

As Executive Director of the Centre, I welcome you to our website. Our hope is that through your engagement with the content of this website, you will be encouraged to contact us to discuss how we promote health care related educational programming at Ivey, facilitate collaboration of our diverse faculty expertise in an effort to help solve health care issues locally and globally, and work externally from Ivey to educate and support practitioners in their efforts to enhance the health care system.

I speak for all our distinguished alumni, faculty, staff and students, in welcoming you to the Centre. We hope you become a part of our efforts and community.
