As we look to the future, the healthcare industry is at a critical juncture. The rapid development of theories on how to deliver safe, person-centred care means that we can no longer rely on the excuse that “healthcare is different” from other industries and cannot be reliable and safe. People are now demanding safety and reliability in the care they receive, and they want to be treated as people who happen to be ill rather than as a number or a disease.

From designing for patients to coproducing with people

By Peter Lachman | Nov. 26, 2019 |

The last month has been pretty busy for me as the ISQua conference took place in Cape Town. This affords me the opportunity to reflect on the key lessons that came out of the conference that may apply to the Irish Healthcare system. There is more than enough for more than one article so I probably will use the concepts over a few, writes Dr. Pater Lachman.

By Peter Lachman | Jul. 24, 2019 |

I recently spent a few days in Beijing at the invitation of the National Institute of Hospital Administration (NIHA), to attend a workshop on the Healthcare Accreditation in the Asia Pacific.

Engaging in Brazil

By Peter Lachman | Jun. 28, 2019 |

This is the first of three blogs on my travels to Latin America in late May – early June.

 

My visit to Latin America started in Sao Paulo, where I presented at ACSC, and the CBEX Symposium, followed by sessions at CISS 2019 (International Congress of Health Services) and the IBES event, which were both part of the 2019 Hospitalar Fair (International Trade Fair).
