Our work is based on the premise that the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery can be improved by applying appropriate business principles. The Healthcare Delivery focus area, part of WDI’s Healthcare Initiative, develops models for delivering healthcare in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

We offer research and advisory services in the following areas:
We employ an approach that involves a client-specific combination of WDI staff, and University of Michigan faculty advisors and top-level MBA student teams from the Ross School of Business, who contribute field research and strategic thinking to the development of relevant, viable, and implementable solutions to specific challenges. This approach enables WDI to deploy a lean team that leverages existing resources to increase the return on our partners’ investments and allows WDI to remain nimble and focused on identifying innovative solutions that draw on multidisciplinary expertise.
