10 Ideas Driving The Future Of Social Entrepreneurship

The 10th Annual Skoll World Forum. which brought together several hundred of the world s leading social entrepreneurs to Oxford, has just wrapped for another year. The Forum serves as a useful barometer for how the climate of social enterprise is changing.

When it launched in 2004, it was all about celebrating the unknown social entrepreneurs, helping give them global recognition and credibility, and a platform to engage with policy leaders and large corporations.

In that task, it has succeeded brilliantly over the past decade, social enterprise has become mainstream. Jeff Skoll picks out the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Muhammad Yunus in 2006 as a watershed moment, followed equally significantly in the following year by the award to Al Gore.

How is it that if no-one is for these things, and everyone is against them, these problems continue?

So 10 years in, what s the current thinking? What new big idea now dominates the agenda and concerns of the Forum participants? And where do they think this field is going?

Broadcaster Ray Suarez expressed it eloquently when he said, Nobody ever comes out and says they are in favor of starving children, or inadequate sanitation, or war and conflict. And yet they persist. So how is it that if no-one is for these things, and everyone is against them, these problems continue?

Everyone at the Forum was in some way wrestling with that question. Whether it was this year s Skoll awardee Carne Ross, whose organization Independent Diplomat is seeking to turn the closed, rigged game of international diplomacy on its head, or Salman Khan s Khan Academy whose new model of free, online tuition is re-shaping how education is delivered, system change is the new game in town.

In Dare to Imagine, the film from the Forum s Opening Plenary, a theoretical physicist, a publisher, a neuroscientist, a technologist, a social financier, and a young science prodigy speculate on the next 50 years ahead. All agree on one thing that the old, incremental way of tackling problems won t work anymore; that we need to radically imagine new ways of coming together to deal with the accelerating world of change. But the film is also profoundly optimistic never before have we had so many ideas and tools to help us cope with this change.

Who better to address this issue than Ashoka (where I work) founder Bill Drayton, the man who was among the first to set out the very concept of social entrepreneur ? Drayton outlined to a packed room his view on what Ashoka considers the next big idea in moving the field what he calls Framework Change, In Drayton s view, to fix our broken systems, we need to accelerate the number of changemakers in the world, and ultimately get to a world in which everyone is a changemaker. That message really seemed to resonate at this year s Forum.

A significant number of discussions highlighted the vital role of young people. Bill Drayton estimates that about 700 of the 3,000 social entrepreneurs in the Ashoka network work directly with youth in some way ,and that helping young people develop the life skills to flourish in this new world is critical to solving the problems we re facing. In particular, helping a child master cognitive empathy was cited by Drayton and others as a foundation skill that could set up a child for life, and speakers such as Taddy Blecher of CIDA and Sandy Speicher of Ideo showed how such models are working in India, South Africa, Peru and around the world.

In this year s Forum, I sensed a strong undercurrent of feeling that scaling impact need not be the same thing as scaling the organisation. Partnerships, franchising, scaling through influence and encouraging imitation: These were all strong themes that emerged in many conversations. Whether this was a response to a reduced funding environment or a strategic choice based on new more effective ways of delivering impact, there was real optimism about the new models emerging. I saw dozens of deals and partnerships being brokered around me. I believe in collaborating to the point of pathology, says Willie Foote, CEO of Root Capital. And he should know from a tiny start-up only a few years ago, Root Capital has now mobilized over $500 million to support farmers in developing countries. If pathological collaboration is Foote s mantra, I say amen.

I believe in collaborating to the point of pathology.

It s always fun to talk about tech, but this year tech was at the heart of conversations on disrupting systems. Whether on how apps helped monitor human rights in the Arab Spring, to discussions on how mobile phone technology is transforming financial services in Africa and insights on tech disruptions in education caused by new models such as Khan Academy. Premal Shah spoke about how Kiva is seeing loans coming from emerging markets into the U.S. defying our assumptions on the traditional north/south relationship. The democratizing power of tech, and ability to impact political situations such as the Arab Spring, was also highlighted, which bring us to

There was a universal agreement that empowering people as far down the chain as possible is key to the system change that we are witnessing. Whether this is was through technology giving people unprecedented access to real-time information, to apps that can transform anyone into a blogger or journalist orcommentator, the days of the few commanding the many (even if those few are brilliant, enlightened social entrepreneurs) is coming to an end. There was a rising view that lean, flexible, teams are going to eat the lunch of the old dinosaurs, and that s as true for NGOs and social enterprises as it is for corporations.

Are NGO, the corporation, and the government agency reaching the end of their shelf life in their current form? Sarah Severn from Nike spoke about integrating sustainability into the DNA of the business, and Maura O Neill, Chief Innovation Officer of USAID spoke about re-engineering the aid model in language any corporate CEO would recognize. It s getting hard to tell who was the NGO and who was the corporate leader. And that s a great thing.

The Forum has always brought together leading social entrepreneurs in conversation with corporate and political partners. But this year I glimpsed the emergence of a new beast prowling the halls: the self-identified social intrapreneur. the change maker who is working within an organization or the political system. From pioneering executives such as Gib Bulloch at Accenture Development Partners to his counterparts at Unilever, Mckinsey, and many other firms, these individuals are creatively finding ways to turn their own organizations into change agents. And it s clear that they are warmly welcomed by the social entrepreneurs we need change agents within large corporations as well as outside. Will there one day be a Skoll World Forum on Social Intrapreneurship? For my part, I hope that soon people won t even notice the difference.

As the Forum passes its tenth year, many leaders of the social enterprise movement are approaching or into their 70s or older. A poignant moment occurred during a panel discussion when Bill Strickland, Paul Farmer and former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, titans of this movement, were asked about succession planning and how they saw legacy. Interesting, all answered that they found saw their legacy in teaching, mentoring, and inspiring others. One torch can light many fires was a common theme. And the fire doesn t have to be spread just within the organization none of them saw succession planning as simply being to find someone to step into their immediate role.

A 10 year anniversary is a great moment to look back, take stock, and then imagine the future. The field of social entrepreneurship has blossomed since the Forum launched and the ideas which a decade ago seemed so radical are now the norm in campuses and boardrooms across the world. If this Forum is anything to go by, the next 10 years are going to be even more disruptive and exciting than the last.

What is the future of the RCM business in India? #top #entrepreneurs


#rcm business

#

Healthcare is undeniably India s largest sector nowadays in terms of both revenue and employment. Healthcare as a whole comprise hospitals, medical devices / equipments, outsourcing, medical tourism and health insurance.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India, a multinational professional service company has estimated that the overall Indian healthcare market today is worth US$ 100 billion and will likely to grow at a CAGR of 23 per cent to US$ 280 billion by 2020.

The Indian medical tourism industry is pegged at US$ 3 billion per annum, with an estimated 230,000 medical tourists arriving in the country. This is expected to double sharply in the next four years to US$ 6 billion.

The healthcare segment has attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 3.41 billion between April 2000 and December 2015, according to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

With this sharp increase, India requires 600,000 to 700,000 additional beds over the next five to six years, indicative of an investment opportunity of US$ 25-30 billion. Given this demand for capital, the number of transactions in the healthcare space is expected to witness a sharp increase in the near future. Increase in number of transactions means a healthy rise in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) provided the RCM company adapts a holistic approach to the process and provide a complete solution. Those firms that follow this practice will be in a position to grab larger share of market in the future.

Other than this, the outsourced market in the healthcare segment is estimated to be around US$ 8 billion, a majority of which is in the US, followed by India. In a flourishing trend, most of the US Healthcare providers are outsourcing their non-core processes like RCM to third-party service providers in other English speaking countries, where India is choosen as a favourabe destination.

The competitive advantage that India has is her large pool of English speaking, talented, well trained professionals with good analytical skills which is essential for BPO indusry, not to mention the cost competitiveness compared to other English speaking countries. The matured medical education system in the country is also widely appreciated abroad.

Eventhough, apprehensions existed few years back about India s ability to handle complex US healthcare process, now they have been removed, as the RCM players have invested wisely for training and upgradation of systems with in the organisation.

So far the major RCM companies in India have been focussing on large sized hospitals in US, the less than 500 bed mid sized hospitals are untouched. This niche market will become attractive in the coming years for RCM companies to work on.

With the internal development in healthcare business with in the country along with the outsourced businesses, the RCM business in India has a tremendous growth opportunity in the coming years.

What is required to grab a major pie of this business is to keep investing money and time to employ / train periodically the healthcare management personnel and invest on the advanced technology to store, manage and analyse, data which helps in automating the RCM process. With these in place, no stopping India as a future leader in Revenue Cycle Management.

Merkel: Europeans now have to fight for their own future #politics, #merkel: #europeans #now

#

While campaigning, Merkel says Europeans can’t ‘completely’ rely on US, others

Steffen Seibert, Merkel’s spokesman, addressed the comments at a Monday news conference in Berlin.

“The chancellor’s words stand on their own,” Seibert said. “They were clear and comprehensible.”

Nevertheless, Seibert said Merkel remained “a deeply convinced trans-Atlanticist.”

“Those who have accompanied Chancellor Merkel journalistically for a long time know how important the German-American relations are,” Seibert said. “They are a pillar for our foreign and security policy and Germany will continue to work on strengthening those relationships. Second point: Chancellor Merkel has said before that Europe has its fate in its own hands.”

Wary meeting

Trump failed to reassure European leaders about his commitment to combating Russian aggression with his remarks at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

The speech, delivered last Thursday resurfaced questions about Trump’s position toward Russia and drew attention again to the federal investigation in Washington.

In the address he pointedly instructed member nations to increase their defense spending.

I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!

NATO leaders chafed at Trump’s lecture, which did not acknowledge member states’ recent increases in military spending nor did it include a reaffirmed US commitment to the alliance’s mutual defense pledge, in light of Trump’s disparaging comments about the alliance during his campaign.

Then at the G7 summit on Friday and Saturday, leaders including Merkel failed to convince Trump to commit to stay in the Paris climate deal.

Trump tweeted from Sicily on Saturday that he would make a final decision next week, and the US took a separate stance on climate from the other nations in the official G7 communique.

Stark contrast

Merkel met with former US President Barack Obama in Berlin prior to the NATO summit on Thursday.

Along with Obama, Merkel has been one of the most prominent voices from Western nations countering nationalist movements of the kind represented by the Brexit campaign and Trump’s policies.

At the Sunday campaign event, Merkel said that Europeans would continue to work in friendship with the US, the UK and others wherever possible, including Russia, but stressed her view that Europeans must be self-reliant.

“We need to know that we have to fight for our own future and destiny as Europeans,” Merkel said.

She went on to express solidarity with the UK against terror, following a deadly attack at a concert in Manchester, England, last week.

If her party is successful in German elections this fall, Merkel would stand for a fourth term as chancellor. Merkel closed out her Munich speech drinking a mug of beer surrounded by supporters doing the same.

CNN’s Sara Mazloumasaki and Nadine Schmidt contributed to this report.

Business Law

    Overview, structure, opportunities
  • 2 Entrance requirements
    English and prerequisites
  • 3 How to apply
    Intakes, application forms, dates

Law is a fundamental business discipline. Its study allows you to develop a wider perspective on both the business and regulatory landscape and specialised expertise that will not only enrich your business career but can also lay the foundations for successful postgraduate studies in law.

On this page

Introduction

A major in Business Law will provide you with a solid understanding of the Australian legal system and how it impacts on business and commercial transactions. The units studied give detailed consideration to the law relating to contract, torts, corporations, agency, partnership, fiduciary obligations, taxation, banking, finance, intellectual property, competition, consumer protection and international trade.

Course description, features and facilities

The Business Law major focuses on the fundamental relationship between law and business and is ideal for those planning careers in a wide range of business areas including professional accounting, business management, international trade and industrial relations.

It will equip you with important skills in teamwork and in written and oral communication as well as high-level analytical, problem solving and research skills. You will learn how to recognise, analyse and, where possible, avoid many of the legal problems that can arise in the course of common business transactions. Further, and perhaps more importantly, where such avoidance is not possible, you will acquire knowledge and skills that will empower you to intelligently request, understand and act on legal services and advice. These are vital business skills that are relevant not just to business in the context of the Australian legal system but also in the context of the legal systems of the many other ‘common law’ countries around the world. Thus, as the accountability and personal liability of professionals, business managers and public servants continues to grow, a strong grounding in business law is increasingly being seen as an attractive attribute for potential employers both nationally and internationally.

All units in this major are taught by the full time academic staff of Western Australia’s leading Law School so students will not only obtain exposure to some of this state’s leading academic lawyers they will also have the opportunity to make use of the UWA Law Schools’ state-of-the-art libraries and research facilities.The fields of study covered in this major can also be taken as option units in first or second year outside of this major.

Student profile Jessica Vu

Studying Business Law has allowed me to learn about commercial businesses – how they run, how they’re structured, and more importantly how the laws affect them, both within Australia and internationally. It has been a great introduction to law, with the real life case studies and oral presentations in class allowing me to develop my writing and presentation skills.

Not only has the major been an interesting and fulfilling part of my degree, but I’ve made so many friends from taking the same classes with like-minded people. Making connections with people in the same field has helped not only my personal development, but possibly future career developments as well.

Structure

UWA’s streamlined course structure allows you to pursue studies in a wide range of areas and to take one or two majors in your degree. Your second major can be from a similar field to your first (degree-specific) major, or from a different area or degree entirely.

As well as the units specified in your major, you will study broadening units outside your main area of study and may be able to take a number of elective subjects as well.

You can explore the structure of this major in detail in the University Handbooks.

CDC – Cancer – NPCR – Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records #program, #cancer

#

Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records

Cancer reporting from ambulatory providers to state cancer registries is a new public health objective for Stage 2 Meaningful Use.

Meaningful Use Overview

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, enacted in February 2009, includes many measures to modernize our nation’s infrastructure, one of which is the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The HITECH Act supports the concept of electronic health records-meaningful use (EHR-MU), an effort led by the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC). HITECH proposes the meaningful use of interoperable electronic health records throughout the United States’ health care delivery system as a critical national goal.

CMS establishes the criteria that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals as well as critical access hospitals must meet to qualify for Medicare and/or Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive payments as they adopt, implement, upgrade, or demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology. ONC establishes the standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for EHR technology that will support implementation of the Stage 2 criteria described by CMS. The criteria and standards for Stage 2 Meaningful Use Final Rules released by the ONC and CMS were published in the Federal Register on September 4, 2012.

More information on meaningful use and public health can be found on CDC’s Meaningful Use Web site.

Cancer and Meaningful Use

  • Outlines the EP objective, measure, and exclusions for reporting to a state cancer registry.
  • Table B5 summarizes the Stage 2 objectives and measures.
  • Table 8 provides clinical quality measures, including several for cancer.

The ONC Stage 2 Meaningful Use Final Rule addresses the cancer registry reporting standards. ONC adopted the Implementation Guide for Ambulatory Healthcare Provider Reporting to Central Cancer Registries, August 2012 [PDF-1.9MB] to certify that EHR systems meet the criteria described in the Stage 2 Meaningful Use Final Rule.

ONC has released a new Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Voluntary 2015 Edition EHR Certification Criteria. This notice of proposed rulemaking introduces the beginning of the ONC’s more frequent approach to health information technology certification regulations. The 2015 Edition EHR certification criteria proposed in this rule would be voluntary. In conjunction with this new proposed rule, CDC has issued an updated implementation guide, Implementation Guide for Ambulatory Healthcare Provider Reporting to Central Cancer Registries, HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), Release 1.1, March 2014 [PDF-2.0MB], that addresses technical corrections and clarifications for interoperability with EHRs and cancer registries.

Additional documentation and clarifications can be found in Cancer Reporting Clarification Document for Electronic Health Record (EHR) Technology Certification [PDF-832KB] .

Cancer Reporting

Population-based cancer surveillance is critical for cancer control activities aimed at reducing cancer morbidity and mortality, the second leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of death in Canada. Population-based public health central cancer registries (CCRs) across the U.S. and most of Canada are mandated to collect complete and timely cancer diagnostic, treatment, and outcome data from hospitals, physician offices, treatment centers, clinics, laboratories, and other sources. Recent shifts from hospital settings toward ambulatory health care settings for cancer treatment are increasing the importance of non-hospital health care providers’ data for cancer surveillance. As health care providers adopt modern EHR systems, the opportunity to automate cancer registry reporting from health care provider settings also is increasing and becoming more feasible. Certified EHR technology can improve the process by identifying reportable cancer cases and treatments to the provider and facilitating electronic reporting either automatically or upon provider verification.

Through a collaborative effort with the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, state CCRs, Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise, and other organizations, CDC developed the Implementation Guide for Healthcare Provider Reporting to Central Cancer Registries. This document contains the necessary specifications for the implementation of standardized data transmissions from a health care provider EHR to the CCR. A single method will allow efficient and accurate transmission of cancer information while reducing the burden on EHR system-specific or registry-specific implementations.

The Implementation Guide provides the business rules and specifications for EHR systems to—

  • Identify reportable cancer cases.
  • Identify the specific data elements to be retrieved and included in the cancer event report.
  • Create a valid Health Level 7 Clinical Document Architecture, Release 2 (HL7 CDA R2) cancer event report.
  • Transmit the cancer event report to a CCR over a secure electronic transmission mechanism.

Guidance for State Cancer Registries, EHR/EMR Vendors, and Providers

  • Identifying Critical External Partnerships Physician Reporting Planning Document [PDF-279KB]
    Identifies and describes useful external partners for implementation of MU activities.
  • Identifying State EHR Vendors Physician Reporting Planning Document [PDF-162KB]
    Guidance on how states can identify EHR vendors, Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), and Regional Extension Centers (RECs)/Regional Assistance Centers (RACs), including, but not limited to, surveys, trade Web sites/magazines, and associations.
  • Counting Physicians by Specialty [PDF-391KB]
    Guidance on tracking the total number of physicians reporting for MU and non-MU-related cancer reporting.
  • Transport Options [PDF-309KB]

The units studied give detailed consideration to the law relating to contract, torts, corporations, agency, partnership, fiduciary obligations, taxation, banking, finance, intellectual property, competition, consumer protection and international trade.

Course description, features and facilities

The Business Law major focuses on the fundamental relationship between law and business and is ideal for those planning careers in a wide range of business areas including professional accounting, business management, international trade and industrial relations.

It will equip you with important skills in teamwork and in written and oral communication as well as high-level analytical, problem solving and research skills. You will learn how to recognise, analyse and, where possible, avoid many of the legal problems that can arise in the course of common business transactions. Further, and perhaps more importantly, where such avoidance is not possible, you will acquire knowledge and skills that will empower you to intelligently request, understand and act on legal services and advice. These are vital business skills that are relevant not just to business in the context of the Australian legal system but also in the context of the legal systems of the many other ‘common law’ countries around the world. Thus, as the accountability and personal liability of professionals, business managers and public servants continues to grow, a strong grounding in business law is increasingly being seen as an attractive attribute for potential employers both nationally and internationally.

All units in this major are taught by the full time academic staff of Western Australia’s leading Law School so students will not only obtain exposure to some of this state’s leading academic lawyers they will also have the opportunity to make use of the UWA Law Schools’ state-of-the-art libraries and research facilities.The fields of study covered in this major can also be taken as option units in first or second year outside of this major.

Student profile Jessica Vu

Studying Business Law has allowed me to learn about commercial businesses – how they run, how they’re structured, and more importantly how the laws affect them, both within Australia and internationally. It has been a great introduction to law, with the real life case studies and oral presentations in class allowing me to develop my writing and presentation skills.

Not only has the major been an interesting and fulfilling part of my degree, but I’ve made so many friends from taking the same classes with like-minded people. Making connections with people in the same field has helped not only my personal development, but possibly future career developments as well.

Structure

UWA’s streamlined course structure allows you to pursue studies in a wide range of areas and to take one or two majors in your degree. Your second major can be from a similar field to your first (degree-specific) major, or from a different area or degree entirely.

As well as the units specified in your major, you will study broadening units outside your main area of study and may be able to take a number of elective subjects as well.

You can explore the structure of this major in detail in the University Handbooks.
