WELCOME TO THE 16TH ANNUAL YALE HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE!
The Yale Healthcare Conference is a joint effort between the Yale School of Management and the Health Professional Schools at Yale University. This annual student-led event brings together professionals, scholars, and students to engage in informative conversation focusing on identifying solutions to contemporary healthcare issues.
In light of current events, the Yale Healthcare Conference has shifted its focus away from our original scheduled program, entitled "The Healthcare [R]evolution: Is Affordability Achievable?" We are excited to adapt our content in light of this emerging global health challenge, and are eager to highlight the many contributions being made to the COVID-19 Pandemic by healthcare professionals around the country and around the world.
JOHN D. THOMPSON DISTINGUISHED VISITING FELLOW AWARD
The faculty, students, and alumnae of the YSPH Health Management Program are proud to celebrate and honor the memory of Professor John D. Thompson with the John D. Thompson Distinguished Visiting Fellow Award. The award pays tribute to Professor Thompson’s contributions as an educator, researcher, and mentor in health administration, including his pioneering work in healthcare finance and hospital quality of care. This year, we are proud to present this award to Dr. Katherine Baicker.
John D. Thompson (1917-1992) was a professor at Yale’s Schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Public Health, and is perhaps best known for his role in the development of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) for hospital reimbursement. A true innovator, Professor Thompson was an early advocate for the application of quantitative data in health policy formulation. Today’s healthcare management students and leaders continue to be inspired by his compassion for patients, dedication to research, and belief in the power of data. The John Devereaux Thompson Academic Development Fund was created in his honor.
