A BALANCING ACT: PROFIT VS. SOCIAL GOOD IN HEALTHCARE DELIVERY
Traditionally, healthcare - like education - has fallen under the domain of the public or private, non-profit sector. How, then, do for-profit businesses enter into this space and maximally benefit the overall healthcare system while also capturing the necessary value for themselves? In fact, is this sharing of benefits inherently problematic, with any focus on profit detracting from the charitable impetus to save a life? Panelists from the for-profit world will discuss what role the private sector should play in delivering quality, affordable healthcare in resource-constrained communities, and how they strike a balance between doing good and making money.
