Nir Menachemi has spent his career living at the intersection of healthcare and business.
“What interested me as I created my research career were issues that presented both clinical and managerial challenges. For example, issues like improving quality, reducing medical errors, or adopting information technology. Each of these topics has clinical and business implications in healthcare organizations,” explains Menachemi, who is a professor of health policy and management.
