Welcome to Health Care—Thinking Globally, a new blog from the team of health care professionals at Maini Consulting Group. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be posting our thoughts and advice on doing business in the global health care arena.
Among the many topics we’ll discuss are planning and getting new international ventures off the ground, meeting the special staffing and organizational challenges inherent in emerging markets, improving financial and operational performance in locales with differing ways of doing business, as well as modernizing and upgrading care quality and patient safety in the face of tradition-bound health care practices.
We’ll also give you our take on significant health care developments and news from around the world, and talk about global health care policy and financing, insurance model issues, and government and regulatory affairs.
We intend to stay away from the purely theoretical, and stay grounded in real-world health care practice and business issues. Each of the Maini Consulting Group partners has years of on-the-ground experience in senior executive roles at U.S. and international health care organizations, and we hope our insights will be of direct interest and real practical help to you, our peers in managing international initiatives and facilities.
Health care is practiced best in collegial environments and, in that spirit, we hope you’ll share your own experiences, thoughts and differences in Comments to our posts. We love to “talk shop,” because such discussions have often led to new best practices in our own organizations. We also encourage you to stay connected by subscribing to the RSS feed of new Health Care—Thinking Globally posts, or having the blog delivered to you directly via email. Thanks from all of us at Maini Consulting Group.
