The 19th Healthcare Industry Meeting, which opens tomorrow on the Barcelona campus, is titled "Value Creation and Value Sharing." In the current economic context, the healthcare industry is facing constant pressure to control health expenditure. This is a structural crisis that requires structural changes. One of the major victories of the 20th century has been the lengthening of our lives and here healthcare systems and the health industry have been at the center of the achievement.

Our healthcare systems have to change in response to the miracle they have produced. Now, more than ever, we have to ensure that we define a sustainable long-term strategy that leads us to use the available resources in the best possible way to guarantee their contribution to value creation. We need to seek new business models that facilitate coordination among all agents involved and foster value sharing to leverage the contributions that new organizational models and new technological and pharmaceutical products can bring to patients' health.

The IESE Healthcare Meeting, sponsored by The Boston Consulting Group, offers a first-class platform for the exchange of perspectives among top executives, academics and healthcare professionals. It will combine keynote speakers, who will share their insight into the current state and the future of the sector, with several panels that will allow participants to share experiences and impressions about the key topics in today's healthcare industry.
