Alumni profile: Manoj Patel

 

social media

Director of Clinical Innovation | Healthcare Holdings Limited

As a child Manoj Patel spent several months in hospital. This exposure to healthcare ultimately led him to becoming a doctor. But Manoj was not content with treating one patient at a time – he wanted to see system changes that would impact upon multiple patients at once.                                               

Manoj studied medicine at The University of Auckland and was awarded a Fulbright Platinum Triangle Scholarship in Entrepreneurship to study for an MBA at Harvard Business School. These experiences gave Manoj a unique set of skills, which allow him to be effective in designing and implementing new healthcare solutions.

While studying at the University of Auckland Manoj was also heavily involved with Velocity. His Velocity experience helped him gain confidence to pursue an unconventional career path of a doctor operating in the business domain of healthcare.

Manoj is currently the Director of Clinical Innovation for Healthcare Holdings Ltd, the parent company for MercyAscot Hospitals and Mercy Radiology. In this role he combines his experiences as a doctor and the business skills from a Harvard MBA to re-imagine healthcare services.

“The health industry is a playground for those with an innovative outlook. There is an interesting tension between clinicians delivering care and administrators managing services. Being able to straddle both camps gives me a unique perspective on how to do things better.”

Manoj Patel graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.
