This Week in Medical Travel Today…
I once had a boss describe his attitude towards a project we were working on as “wildly, cautiously optimistic.” That’s kind of how I feel the content of this issue reads.
On the one hand you have organizations forming new alliances aimed at raising professional standards and boosting consumer confidence (and business), and thought leaders discussing how telehealth can promote better patient care and experiences (and business). But on the other hand, there are tales of concern and woe related to the viability of expanded hospital networks and the leading causes of facilitator failure.
The mix is an interesting reminder that the pitfalls of the industry are as plentiful as the opportunities.
Yours with tempered enthusiasm,
