The THTex Difference 

The Telfer Health Transformation Exchange (THTEX) is a unique initiative in Canada that brings together clinical innovators, industry leaders, and business academics to understand, learn, share insights, and make an impact on how our health care system is being transformed through a collaborative platform.  

“For our school [Telfer School of Management] to be impactful and relevant in the healthcare sphere, it should have a strong connection with health care system. The Exchange provides such a connection by bringing together clinical thought leaders and management faculty and student in health programs at Telfer.”

“The unique thing about the Exchange is that it takes a ‘bottom-up’ approach where we’re trying to engage a cohort of clinical innovators who sit in every hospital, every clinic, who feel somewhat isolated, somewhat frustrated that they don’t have access to the opportunity to bring their ideas to bear. The Exchange links them to a CoP model with business academics who bring a business/management knowledge to the table.”
