Private Sector and Global Health: ORTEC and North Star Alliance

What defines the leading corporate health programs? How are companies across sectors thinking about innovation, sustainability and the future of their work? Learn from the 2013 Business Action on Health award winners as they discuss their current programs’ effectiveness and their goals for the years ahead.

Recently, GBCHealth announced a new video interview series called Talking with Experts that explores some of the ways in which private sector firms are addressing pressing global health issues through innovative programmes and collaborative partnerships across the public, private, and humanitarian sectors. As part of this series, Lambert van der Bruggen and Geerhard de Vries from ORTEC, one of our longtime partners, had the opportunity to discuss how ORTEC and North Star Alliance are doing just that.

The interview series follows ORTEC’s recent recognition as the 2013 Technology for Health Award winner at the GBCHealth Business Action on Health Awards, for their work on “COMETS”, a client registration and health monitoring system that enables us to access client health information, and track epidemiological trends, across our network of clinics.

The interview explores the role of business engagement in public health and how partnerships across the public, private, and humanitarian sectors can support innovation and create shared value for all parties involved.

GBCHealth also released a case study, recently featured in their Case Study of the Month publication, which is available for download on their website.
