  • General Management Programme for Healthcare Executives (Batch-1) Module-4

    Programme Directors    : Profs. Shankar Venkatagiri & Rajluxmi V Murthy

    Programme Dates           : 4, 11, 18 & 25 February 2017

    Programme Venue         : M-12, IIMB Campus

    Programme Overview   : The well-being of a population requires the coordinated participation of hospitals and healthcare institutions, pharmaceutical firms and their products, diagnostic services, healthcare technologies, informatics, insurance providers, entrepreneurs and finally, the community of healthcare recipients.

    Expenditure on healthcare is on the rise in India. Having reached the $100 billion mark in 2015, the spending is set to triple over the next 5 years. Consequently, there is a massive requirement for trained management professionals in healthcare. As with many other sectors, employees who are competent in their lines of work are identified to step into the shoes of managers. In the case of hospitals, senior doctors and nurses are charged with responsibilities that were not part of their training at college.

    The GMHE is a part-time certificate program that is aimed at high performing individuals in the healthcare domain, who are looking to transition from a functional role to a management role. This sectoral program is modelled on the highly successful Executive General Management Program (EGMP) offered under IIMB’s executive education programs for over a decade. The GMHE has been designed and developed by IIMB in partnership with apollo MedSkills, the skills arm of apollo hospitals. The academic content will be delivered by IIMB faculty, clinicians / administrators from some of the pre-eminent hospitals and healthcare service providers. There will also be frequent interactions with practioners from allied disciplines such as pharmaceuticals and insurance, which today play an important role in determining the success of healthcare delivery models. Participants in the GMHE will have ample opportunity to develop core business skills and competencies that are pertinent to their chosen domain within healthcare. They will involve themselves actively in case discussions, practicums, and interactive exercises in the classroom. The program’s activities will help participants in networking with peers from diverse backgrounds.

The Specialty of GMITE is bringing together participants of various backgrounds, skills and experiences; and develop crossfunctional skills through an intensive curriculum taught by the IIMB faculty.

  • Big Data Analytics (Batch-1) Module-5


    Programme Directors    : Profs. Dinesh Kumar, Shankar Venkatagiri & Pulak Ghosh

    Programme Dates           : 17 -18 February 2017

    Programme Venue         : M-11, IIMB Campus

    Programme Overview   : A triad of terms captures the essence of “big data”: volume, velocity and variety. The volume and pace at which data is created can challenge existing computing infrastructure. For example, every flight of a Boeing 777 can generate up to 1 terabyte (~1000 gigabytes) of data. Making sense of this data is imperative for decision making and troubleshooting. The theory of bounded rationality proposed by Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon is evermore significant today with the increased complexity of business problems; the human mind is constrained in its capacity to evaluate alternatives, given limited time to make conclusions.   

    Organisations large and small are forced to grapple with problems of big data, which challenge the existing tenets of data science and computing technologies. Techniques in predictive analytics rely heavily on the validity of statistical concepts such as independent and identically distributed (IID) random variables and the central limit theorem (CLT). When dealing with big data, the validity of these assumptions becomes questionable. Straightforward tasks such as interpreting descriptive statistics have their share of issues. We begin to question the utility of summary measures and diagrams.

    Algorithms that work well on “small” datasets crumble when the size of the data extends into the gigabytes. Time series techniques must be revamped to handle streaming data in continuous time. Social media messages have data formats that are unfit to be represented by traditional databases. While these may appear to be difficult problems, there has been a tremendous progress in big data analytics. For example, columnar databases have significantly boosted query speeds. File systems can seamlessly distribute datasets on multiple hard drives, and facilitate analytics on them in real time. Finally, the free and open source nature of several big data platforms promotes rapid adoption.
