Inter-institutional cooperation

Public-public and public-private partnerships

Public sector: The Professional Master’s Program in Health Organizations Management (MPGOS) since its implementation has regularly received and trained students in all areas of knowledge, linked to various public health care and management institutions such as hospitals, basic units (including the Family Health Strategy), secondary care units (outpatient clinics), the Ministry of Health, and municipal health departments, foundations to support health services, thus contributing to qualified staff training in management in all its aspects, as well as in the process of evaluating health technologies with efficiency and technical competence.

MPGOS has maintained a close relationship with Departments, Secretariats and Committees of the Ministry of Health, such as the Board of Management and Incorporation of Technologies in Health (DGITS), the National Committee for the Incorporation of Technologies for SUS (CONITEC), the Department of Science and Technology (DECIT), developing studies related to the evaluation and incorporation of technologies for the SUS, through the elaboration of scientific evidence opinions and other products, according to letter of agreement signatures with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), working together with Hospitals via PROADI-SUS and other agreements, resulting in multilateral benefits (MPGOS, Ministry of Health, MPGOS students, society).

MPGOS has intended to provide support to some state health departments as consultancies in issues related to management in its many aspects, support the managerial demands arising from the judicialization linked to new health technologies, as well as receiving and training students with specific training demands of regional interest.

Philanthropic sector: The MPGOS has approached health institutions in the philanthropic sector, either directly receiving students who are professionally associated especially to Santas Casas, or through agreements for the qualification of professionals from institutions of other Brazilian states, such as Santa Casa de Campo Grande/MS (SCCG), in which the MPGOS will recently offer the Masters in the “Off Campus Class”, qualifying the Institution’s staff in the practices and knowledge of Health Management, and providing support for the central objective in the creation of a Professional Master’s Program of SCCG.

Private sector: The MPGOS has attracted many professionals from the private health sector, receiving and qualifying students who have relations with supplementary and private health institutions, qualifying them for health management based on management tools appropriate to the corporate environment, generating efficient results with potential for technology transfer to other sectors. The Program has also been sought by professionals related to the functional body of health industries such as pharmaceutical laboratories and medical equipment, and since the first selection process has trained several of them; many have received promotions or career replacements after the MPGOS.

Technological innovations, research and development: The Program has a formal association and integration with the Ribeirao Preto Technology Park – SUPERA®, a successful experience between the University of São Paulo, the Local Government of Ribeirão Preto, the State Government of São Paulo and Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications. This initiative has generated innovative products developed within the scope of projects presented and executed by some of MPGOS professional masters linked to SUPERA®. FAPESP and CNPq have been supported many of these projects generating considerable social and economic impact.
