"Measuring Health Care Quality"
Conference and "get together" with Denise Silber, eHealth specialist, co-hosted by the HCF and Institut Montaigne
What do we really know about the quality of the health care we receive? Which systems most closely measure the results of healthcare providers? Are the principles of quality management applicable to medicine? How does Information Technology play into the picture? These questions are of vital interest to all. So please come join us as we welcome guest speaker, Denise Silber, HBS MBA '79, at the Institut Montaigne on April 8 2009.
Denise Silber, an eHealth expert and entrepreneur, and American in Paris, is the founder of Basil Strategies consultants, providers of eHealth and eMarketing services., as well as the Association for the Quality of Healthcare on the Net. Public speaker and author, Denise has written three reports on healthcare quality for the Institut Montaigne. The most recent publication "Measuring Health Care Quality" provides 1) an impressive set of data regarding the failure of healthcare systems around the world to apply the highest standards of care and 2) some simple proposals for the way forward
The event will start with the conference at 6:30pm, to be followed immediately by a small cocktail.
Venue : Institut Montaigne
The Harvard Club of France (HCF) is a non-profit organization (association 1901) that serves the interests of Harvard and the more than 2500 members of the alumni community in France. Our goals are threefold:
The HCF is also deeply committed to helping Harvard outreach locally. Alumni volunteers conduct college interviews with undergraduate applicants and provide counseling, and the Club actively solicits donations to the Harvard French Scholarship Fund, which has helped over 100 French students pursue their studies at Harvard's various faculties. Both of these forms of alumni support have contributed to fostering a stronger European presence at Harvard and to strengthening Harvard's image in France.
The priority of the Executive Committee for 2008-2009 is to propose a slate of activities and events for our members that will cover a very broad range of interests: politics, arts, sciences, law, economy, environment, and education.
We will also bring more of Harvard to our members by organizing more events with Faculty and distinguished graduates of the university who travel to France.
All these activities will be organized in close coordination with the other Harvard alumni associations in France: the HBS Club de France, the Harvard Law School Association in France, the Association des Anciens Boursiers Sachs à Harvard and the Harvard French Scholarship Fund. We will make sure that we leverage as effectively as possible the time of all volunteers involved to best serve the alumni community in France.
