Great it you're tech-savvy, well enough to take in the info & action it on your own at home BUT
I've got a PhD, a high IQ, & been tech-savvy since the 70s but when I'm really ill I'm 'as thick as two short planks'

They need to build #hospitals & employ #humans, not buy more tech. Have you ever been through a week where someone in your organisation didn't need the tech they use #troubleshooting?
Has your tech ever gone-down?
Now imagine, you're not very well & you have to sort it out.
Brexit lost us a lot of clinical staff. The staff in hospitals now are worked to the point of breaking & beyond. The answer isn't more tech. Tech needs to be integrated into a highly effective service with enough resources to cope.

A thread on #HCG #Hospital 🧵

This Cancer Speciality Hospital is all set to enter the "Growth without CAPEX Mode"

I would also like to thank some of the Fund Managers/ Educators for sharing their knowledge.

It's the 4th Hospital Stock in my Portfolio.

IMPROVING YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AS A SERVICE PROVIDER DAY 1

Many service providers have found it difficult to distinguish themselves as they remain lost in the crowd.

#people #customerservice #restaurant #banks #hospitals #hospitalityindustry
They are unable to have a unique selling point hence consumers see them as not different from others who provide the same kind of service.

Over the next few days, I will be sharing tips on what can help you carve a niche for yourself in the midst of a lot of competitors.
First is that you must provide good and quality service. As a service provider, you must never get to a level where consumers complain about your service.

If you are Quick Service Restaurant (QSR), you must ensure that your food is delicious.

I want to share an analogy & call to #Hospitals to #ProtectHCWs. 2+ years yet hospitals leave workers open to PREVENTABLE death & disability. They need to held to task & REQUIRED to properly & fully protect their workers. Please join me & share this. #HCWs #Covid #LongCovid (1/3)
#HCWs DESERVE government protections, as do patients! It is unethical for them to continue to skirt proper air filtration & personal protective equipment MINIMUMS. @OSHA_DOL are you listening? #OSHA #P100 #respirators #Ventilate #HEPA #LongCovid #CovidIsNotOver #MaskUp (2/3)
Providing P100 respirators, increasing proper indoor air filtration, & testing workers regularly will help attract & retain staff. In addition to it being the RIGHT THING TO DO! Questions? Contact me #DoTheRightThing #LegislateProtection #ProtectHCWs #Nurses #ProtectRNs (3/3)

We need to talk about why Sidibe v. Sutter, the federal antitrust case whose trial started this week, is important, worth your attention & bigger than @SutterHealth. 1/10
It was filed by businesses who bought health insurance for employees. They're suing the $13B health system arguing it has used monopoly power to drive up their costs--both care for members & premiums/copays--by at least $411M over the yrs. Background: bit.ly/3HJT4Rr 2/10
The suit says Sutter does this a few ways. One is by forcing health insurers to include ALL its #hospitals in their networks if they want ANY of them. So even if you just want Crescent City & East Bay, you've got include SF, Modesto, etc. 3/10

⚖️ LEGAL LOOKOUT 1: We’ve read with interest the amicus brief below filed by 24 health policy experts in the @texmed v. @HHSGov lawsuit, as we filed one, too.

Without any further digging, though, we can see off the bat that a majority of the so-called experts who signed

onto this brief are funded by the #insurance industry.

We respect and cherish the fact that everyone party to a significant #policy debate like this one over #regulatory implementation of the #NoSurprisesAct has a voice.

But, a question to @RonaldKlain, @SecBecerra, and

@BrooksLaSureCMS: How can you reconcile the fact that the administration’s #regulations rely on these bankrolled academics and experts while also claiming that these regulations help #patients and our #healthcare system? This is an alternative reality.

In July of 2021, the @CDCgov announced a decrease in US life expectancy of 1.5 years, the biggest one-year decline since #WWII. Even before COVID-19, however, the US has seen several years of declining life expectancy in the past decade. #ph260720 #COVID
cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom…
Meanwhile, we see a widening gap in medical care between those with high and low status, leading to much larger declines in life expectancy for black and brown populations during #COVID19. How do you think these gaps came to be? #ph260720 #Healthcare
#hospitals continue to #Innovate and improve their medical care, following charters to improve health and care for the needy. However, they often fail to address the non-medical needs of their community, the “social determinants of health” #ph260720 #CommunityHealth

We issued the following statement this a.m. on the @UHC-@zackcooperYale-@Yale #surprisemedicalbill "research" scandal.

Time for another 🧵 on current state of #COVID19 in Greater #Cincinnati. Short summary of all - #CovidIsNotOver and the data point to presence of #DeltaVariant in our midst. Every indicator going in wrong direction. What can you do? #MaskUp #GetVaccinated. Ok here we go ...
Incidence (new cases per population per time) and R (measure of transmission) are both in problematic territory. Below see Hamilton Cty and 14 Cty region. Incidence highest since May, R remains >1 indicative of exponential spread. Increases all across region.
We also illustrate incidence by county according to @CDCgov thresholds. This measure multiples the daily incidence by 7 for a weekly incidence. See counties in region below. All now at least in yellow zone - where universal indoor masking is recommended. #MaskMandate

Britain has more job #vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need #migrants and millions of them. #Brexit was a con. Watch this 1½-minute video. Read my report on Facebook: bit.ly/3jutvuf LinkedIn: bit.ly/3hjBHLf
It's not just vacancies. Britain has more JOBS than Britons to do them. That's why we need millions of migrants. It really is that simple. Why else would the government offer 3 million Hong Kong citizens the right to come to the UK? Leave voters were misled... big time.
Our country has an ageing population, and a low birth rate. So, the truth is that we have to import young people and skilled (and many unskilled) people to do the jobs that we don’t have enough Britons to fill. The government, of course, knows this only too well.
