Health Thought Leadership Network Members

Bentley’s Health Thought Leadership Network (Health TLN) is a collection of more than 60 faculty and staff members spanning 25 offices, centers and departments. This incredible range of experience and expertise allows the Health TLN to build on Bentley’s strengths as a business university to do transdisciplinary research in health and health care, all through a business lens.

Bentley faculty conduct health research in four distinct areas: Patients and Consumers, Systems and Information, Outcomes and Measures, and Technology and Innovation. The Health TLN supports this research through an annual collaborative retreat, health research skills workshops, sponsorship of external thought leaders on campus, outreach to external stakeholders and alumni, grant support and training, research resources, and project seed funding.
