Are we overbuilding?
Planning is important. When hospital groups, health systems, government ministries, and others endeavour to build a new health care facility, they have an earnest desire to meet the future healthcare needs of the local population. However, with changes in integrated care, healthcare IT, the treatment of chronic diseases and other factors, are we building too much too fast?
Ms. Paula Wilson, President and CEO of Joint Commission International (JCI), shared about trends in healthcare and the changing role of hospitals in one of the plenary sessions on 13 September at Hospital Management Asia 2018.
