Jorge Moll was one of the three hundred healthcare executives attending the 2017th National Health Confederation (CNS) in Rio. Other prominent healthcare management scientists chosen to give keynote speeches included Claudio Jose Allgayer and Paolo Chapchap. Dr. Chapchap serves as the CEO of the Sirio-Libanes D’Or Sao Luiz Hospital. Here’s a recap of what the veteran hospital management gurus had to teach. Follow Jorge Moll on Facebook.
Of Infinite Needs and Limited Resources
Paulo Chapchap opened the stage by acknowledging the remarkable jobs done by developed nations in allocating more funds to their health sectors. Dr. Paul observed that in many European nations, the health sector is allocated up to 10% of the country’s GDP. The physician, having served over 20 years in the industry, knows the hurdles and challenges facing hospital managements all too well. Dr. Chapchap goes ahead to use the so-called ‘strength triangle” theory proposed by the late William Kissick, a health management authority from the Wharton University.
Every hospital grapples with the problem of how they strike a balance between infinite needs and limited resources. Winding up, Dr. Paul called on his peers to quit wasting valuable money on unimportant things and instead funnel those funds towards overhauling the ancient healthcare management systems running most, if not all, of the hospitals you find everywhere.
Jorge Moll Wows!
After a much-deserved coffee break, the 300 business executives came back to a brilliant presentation from Jorge Moll. Jorge Moll is a celebrity figure at the event being the founder and a director in well over 30 hospitals in Brazil. Jorge was melancholic as he explained how it all just started as a small exam institution to become a behemoth conglomerate comprised of hundreds of accredited and excellent hospitals. The accomplished cardiologist remarked how he’d seen Rio go from being the center of medicine in the nation to the appalling state Rio’s healthcare sector is today. Greedy business persons played a part in the worsening health sector as they inflated the costs of essential diagnostic tools and other hospital services. Jorge is, however, very optimistic about the future as more hospitals embrace the culture of being socially responsible. Visit Wikipedia to know more about Jorge Moll.
