Study programme
learn & Connect

An intensive study programme designed specifically for health plan senior leaders to broaden their understanding of the world’s health systems and payer strategies. The programme provides a unique opportunity to forge relationships with colleagues and experts from all over the world. This year the event will be facilitated virtually in the first half of the year, with the concluding segment hosted at member companies.

In 2021 we took our group of leaders on a virtual study tour giving each member the opportunity to connect and learn from health systems in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA. For 2022 we are planning to create a programme for members which is part virtual in Q2 2022 and then will bring the group together for physical meetings in Europe and the East Coast of the USA in Q4 2022.

Between May and June 2022, the programme will be facilitated online, taking in the New Zealand, Australian, Middle Eastern and South African markets. Starting with virtual visits, a range of regions can be “visited” in an efficient and risk-free way.

In October 2022 the programme will recommence with hosted in-person visits to three European members. Leaving Europe, the group will then cross the Atlantic to Washington DC, the centre of American health policy making. While in Washington, the cohort will visit Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Total Health, as well as an exciting selection of political and non-political groups at the centre of US health policy making. These will include Harvard Medical School, the Institute for Clinical & Economic Review, and FTI Consulting’s Center for Healthcare Economics & Policy.

The week in the USA will conclude with a visit to UPMC, one of America’s leading integrated non-profit health enterprises and head quartered in Pittsburgh, PA. Pittsburgh itself has long been a centre for health innovation and new thinking, and delegates will be able to meet with local disruptors and other innovators in the health space.

Fees for EDP 2022 will be £10,500.

In 2022 our Executive Development Programme will revert to a physical programme bringing together aspiring leaders from our members to learn about various healthcare systems and issues around the world.

The first segment of the course will allow those in the group to spend time at member offices in Europe and the Middle East. Our programme aims to maximise time spent actively learning, but combined with the opportunities to learn from each other in the cohort group. The first part of the programme spans two weeks.
After regular virtual interactions we then re-convene the group in Q4 to explore in more depth the Australian & New Zealand healthcare eco-system. Following a week spent in this region to intend to take the group to the USA and the heart of US Health & Policy in Washington DC. The impact of the US system can never be underestimated and members will have the chance to both learn from members in the US and health and policy experts

Those enrolled on the programme learn valuable global industry knowledge, but additionally form strong connections with peers across the world. Where we see common issues, but also common solutions globally, this is an invaluable network.
