The Centre for Healthcare (CFH) at IIM Udaipur originated to provide a platform for rigorous healthcare research in India from a management perspective. The objective was to bring together academicians from management, public health, health economics, practitioners, and research active medical professionals to understand and solve fundamental issues in healthcare in low and middle-income countries (LMIC). The CFH focuses on projects related to primary healthcare, nutrition, and healthcare enablers such as technology and data.
The role of IIMU’s Centre for Digital Enterprise (CDE) is to create and sustain a dynamic environment for thought leadership in all aspects of digital transformation. CDE enables IIMU to focus its various activities relating to digital transformation across programs and academic disciplines, to create new initiatives and partnerships, and to expand research opportunities.
Speaking on the upcoming event, Prof Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur, said, “As we begin to complete activities around our 10th Anniversary, I am delighted to see the collaboration of two of our Centres on a subject of such importance. It is in line with our objective of fostering thought leadership in management across domains such as digital and healthcare. As we work toward achieving our Vision 2030, we hope to see more such path-breaking initiatives being undertaken.”
