MSU students from China visit CoxHealth

Students from Missouri State University’s Executive MBA program visited the Cox South campus on Tuesday, touring the hospital and meeting with senior leaders.

The group is made up of Chinese EMBA students studying at Missouri State University. Through the EMBA program, students with extensive business experience receive classroom training and interaction with successful local businesses. The majority of the EMBA class members are managers from a variety of industries in China.

Students met with CEO Steve Edwards as well as Mitchell Cox, CoxHealth’s director of corporate projects and planning, and Scott Rogers, system director of performance integration and innovation.

Participants learned about CoxHealth’s organizational structure, logistics and use of technology, including electronic medical records, e-visits and telemedicine for rural areas. The class also learned about pharmaceutical purchasing and the general administration of the hospital.
