healthcare - cost - money - premiums

Ayesha Khalid, Surgeon, Harvard Medical School and MBA graduate from the MIT Sloan Fellows Program:

The discussion posted below was recently published in the MIT Sloan School for Management Experts program.

Ayesha Khalid, surgeon at Harvard Medical School and recent MBA from the MIT Sloan Fellows Program, is at the intersection of disruptive innovation in healthcare and the digital health experience. Dr. Khalid previously pioneered groundbreaking research in sinus disease including muco-ciliary clearance and outcomes following surgery. She is now a passionate believer that disruptive innovation in healthcare requires collaboration, not competition.

Using a systems thinking approach, Dr. Khalid wants us to suspend our belief that adding more process to our healthcare system will add back “health” and “care” to a broken system. Instead, this compelling talk provides an imaginative way to approach the redesign of our health care system to one that promotes “health” and works “systematically” for the patient.

A sinus surgeon at Harvard Medical School and recent MBA graduate from MIT, Ayesha Khalid is a healthcare innovation enthusiast involved with entrepreneurial ventures at the intersection of healthcare innovation and digital technologies. She has pioneered groundbreaking research techniques in inflammation and sinus disease and is working to create different funding paradigms to accelerate clinical research.
