Journal Club

Under the aegis of the Health Enterprise Management (HEMA) Alumni Organization, the inaugural HEMA Journal Club was held at the Allen Center on Wednesday June 1, 2011. The concept was originated by Professor Joel Shalowitz and is modeled on similar activities in graduate medical education. The purpose of the Club is to foster intellectual exchange about healthcare management among alumni, faculty and students.

The HEMA Program will continue the Journal Club on a quarterly basis. We welcome comments from alums about other programs and if you would like to have a Club meeting over the summer.

  • The Anthem-Cigna & Aetna-Humana Mergers: A Post Mortem

    Sep 14, 2017

    Earlier this year, two federal courts issued rulings blocking the mergers between Anthem and Cigna and between Aetna and Humana. This panel brings current and former Kellogg faculty together who all played important roles in these cases, both as testifying experts and behind-the-scenes analysts representing both sides of both mergers. The panelists will discuss the key economic issues in the cases and how the healthcare system might have evolved if the outcomes had gone differently. They will also consider what is next in store for the health insurance industry. Registration is open - Register today!
