Vicki Smith-Daniels, faculty chair of graduate business programs in medicine and professor of operations and supply chain management at the Kelley School of Business, joined America’s Work Force radio host Ed “Flash” Ferenc on April 16th for a discussion about healthcare. Smith-Daniels talked about making doctors better leaders, the need for innovation in today’s changing healthcare environment, and how the new Business of Medicine MBA program will help practicing physicians lead change in their organizations.
“This program is about creating physician leaders who can bring change,” Smith-Daniels said, “and that change hopefully will give better patient outcomes and give better care at lower costs.”
Ferenc noted that Cleveland is a hot-bed for healthcare in Northeast Ohio, with more than 51,000 medical professionals in the metro area.
“Cleveland has always been an innovator in many different ways,” Smith-Daniels said, “and is also bringing in new innovation today in a lot of the life science partnerships with many of those hospital systems you’ve mentioned already.”
