Webinar: International Collaborations as Part of AMC Strategy

December 12, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Maintaining healthy operational revenue and margins in hospitals has become increasingly challenging; hence, most Academic Medical Centers (AMCS) are developing new revenue streams to supplement their traditional sources. Developing international programs and advisory services can be one of the ways AMCs can generate alternative revenue while extending their education, training and research missions.

Using cancer care as a case study, we will explore strategies around collaborating with the right international partners, ways that international collaborations create new relationships, strengthen existing ones and allows for sustainability in an ever-competitive environment. Some institutions have chosen to open facilities overseas, but there are other ways to extend the brand of an AMC through advisory services without significant capital investment and the associated risk.
