Twenty-five per cent of real country growth is related to health improvement," said Andrés Valenciano, the new Director of the Central American Healthcare Initiative (CAHI). "If we improve health, we will improve social progress in the region," said INCAE Rector Enrique Bolaños. Costa Rica Vice President Ana Helena Chacón stated, "If we are not innovative, transparent, and if we fail to increase healthcare coverage, we will not be able to achieve great things."

Nearly 140 people gathered for the presentation "Organizational Change and Innovation in the Healthcare Sector", conducted by CAHI with support from INCAE Business School on February 8th at the Corobicí Crowne Plaza Hotel in San José. The central idea was to analyze the keys to progress in the region's healthcare systems, better reach to the base of the pyramid, and foster innovation in an industry dealing with highly demanding customers and vital emergency situations.
