The HBI will create a practitioner-facing knowledge portal that features a journal and multimedia content that will present the research conducted at the Institute, as well as research from other sources, to the healthcare community at large. The journal will translate high quality research in terms of business insights to the healthcare community.
The Knowledge Portal will consist of the following elements:
- Video and audio content, blogs, and research archives accessible to the public
- An Impact Journal (electronic) that features short, focused articles on healthcare issues with access distributed electronically to members and affiliates of the institute
- Editorials and content and policy articles from affiliated researchers and practitioners.
The journal will amplify the benefits of the research, education, and service offerings of the HBI by helping the Institute reach a wide audience of senior executives in organizations in the healthcare space, VCs and startups, researchers, policy makers, clinicians, and educators with an interest in healthcare.
The journal will present the research conducted at the Institute, as well as research from other sources, to the healthcare community at large. The journal will translate high quality research in terms of business insights to the healthcare practitioner community.
