The healthcare talent shortage is probably the key influential factor that is affecting and limiting organizational excellence in the industry. As nations prepare for problems associated with fast ageing populations, provision of efficient healthcare delivery becomes increasingly important. More pressure and emphasis have been placed on providing quality care for citizens.

Hotel of the Month – The Westin Langkawi Resort, Malaysia

Need to retreat to a paradise? Retreat to The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, surrounded by the idyllic natural setting of the magical Langkawi Island. Malaysia Healthcare patients have been visiting this beautiful resort to recuperate and rejuvenate after their medical procedures. 

Situated on 500 meters of private beachfront, our resort offers a retreat from the rigors of travel, yet is only one kilometre from the main harbour of Langkawi, three kilometres from Kuah duty-free shopping centres, and 20 minutes from the Langkawi International Airport. Leave behind the hectic city life and enter a sense-awakening oasis that refreshes and de-stresses the mind and body. A great wellness location and a favorite among our patients! The aromatic scent of White Tea candles, a touch of nature in the decorated botanicals, refreshing drinks, and the invigorating cold towel service will fill your visit with unforgettable memories long after you leave.

Google’s Eric Schmidt on Business Culture, Healthcare & Technology!

A great interview by McKinsey & Co with Google’s Eric Schmidt! Google’s executive chairman shares his strategies on hiring, running meetings, designing “mobile first” business models, and addressing joblessness and education reform. On page 5, Mr. Schmidt gives his thoughts on healthcare and how everything should be simplified when we see a doctor and recommends storing our healthcare in a USB dongle or a Personal Health Record (PHR).

Malaysia Healthcare patients have been using a portable Personal Health Record (PHR) called the iPHER for a number of years that carries all their PHI which includes, medications, lab tests, diagnosis, immunizations, alternative procedures, digital images, dental records, ophthalmic care (lens and contact prescriptions) and DNA any where in the world with no need to access the Internet to view the information. Malaysia Healthcare currently uses this PHR to reduce medical errors and create continuity of care for their medical tourists.

Our thanks goes to Mr. Schmidt and Google for finding new ways to simplify our visit to our healthcare providers!
