Mission & Margin is the Business of Healthcare

About the Business of Healthcare

BOH began publishing interviews in January 2017. Each season includes 3 – 7 interviews on a complex healthcare issue and the mission and economic value of solving that problem. 

 Now publishing its 13th season, the BOH library consists of 47 published interviews with senior leaders from across U.S. healthcare.   Audience members are leaders from across healthcare: hospitals & health systems, physician practices, pharma, device, and senior living organizations, as well as government and commercial payers and the buyers of healthcare for large U.S. employers.

 BOH estimates 118,000 decision makers are responsible for 80% or more of the ‘Buy’ and ‘Sell’ sides of U.S. healthcare.  As of November 2018, 19,373 of these decision makers participate in the BOH audience. It is for this audience that BOH was purpose-built to identify and help propagate proven innovations elevating healthcare Mission & Margin more rapidly.  Content is published in video, podcast and written article formats.

 To ensure objectivity, the BOH Editorial Board maintains editorial control and approves each Interview. Interview ratings and comments from audience members guide Editorial Board policy.
