About HMI Lab

The increasing and ageing population, greater numbers of people living with long-term conditions, and growing demand for more advanced healthcare and more expensive technologies: these are just a few of the challenges that health systems are currently facing.

In this context, there is a growing fear that current healthcare systems are not sustainable. Management is one lever that can help solve these issues, and healthcare organisations are currently facing the challenges of both transforming management practice and implementing and appropriating new management techniques. The Health Management Innovation (HMI) Research Centre is an initiative that aims to help these organisations in this process.

The Centre is dedicated to the research of managerial innovations and the delivery of Health Care Services. This covers technology, performance management, organisational design, human capital, financing, business models etc. that can allow, on the one hand, to improve the quality of care and, on the other, to increase the sustainability of Health Systems.

Bringing together the expertise of our faculty and many external international associates, the objective of the HMI Centre at ESCP Europe Business School is to contribute to current academic knowledge and emphasise the practice of health-related organisations.

Our research stance is clinical in the sense that it aims to deal with issues encountered by practitioners with the help of academic knowledge and methods. Our experience proves that applying research methods can help managers solve complex operational problems by shedding new light while creating valuable academic knowledge.

The HMI Centre's activities will, therefore, add value to our corporate and government partners by:

  • Addressing operational problems and helping identify appropriate solutions
  • Fostering practice exchange with the aim of helping actors to appropriate good practices
  • Advising on issues related to health management
