Michael Porter, Janet Woodcock, Peter Senge Among Speakers at Inaugural Innovation in Healthcare Symposium
Date:1/19/2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 1, 2011, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Biological Engineering, Center for Biomedical Innovation, and Engineering Systems Division will host the Innovation in Healthcare Symposium: Systems Thinking from Discovery to Delivery at MIT's Kresge Auditorium. The day-long event, sponsored by Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, will be a forum to stimulate new ways of thinking about and addressing today's greatest healthcare challenges.

"The nation needs a new way of thinking about the healthcare system," says Michael Porter in his book 'Redefining Healthcare.' "Neither the problem nor the solution will be found in any single aspect of the system or in any single actor."

Globally, healthcare is one of the great societal and economic challenges of the 21st century. With healthcare spending approaching nearly one-fifth of the world economy, access, quality and the cost of care are all major issues.

"The opportunity to sponsor this symposium is a wonderful way for Merrimack to celebrate our 10th anniversary," says Robert Mulroy, Merrimack Pharmaceuticals' president and CEO.  "We are convinced that the future of healthcare innovation lies in the ability to think outside of our individual disciplines. Our goal with MIT, on February 1, is to educate and inspire tomorrow's innovators."

The Symposium will consist of four multi-disciplinary expert panels structured around three major topics:  improving healthcare delivery to patients, reversing the declining productivity of biomedical research, and applying lessons learned by other industries to guide a transformation of our healthcare system. The fourth panel will be a question-and-answer session composed of young leaders currently working in the healthcare field discussing how the issues raised by the previous panels impact their work.
