Thanks Melanie! That is a big challenge to try to ‘figure out how healthcare executives think”! And, I appreciate how you don’t want to become one of the and buy into their philosophy! Me either. One type of data they are probably interested in is money, funding for all that the healthcare system is involved in! I sometimes hear from staff that they feel ‘money is the bottom line’ yet the executives say that is not true, we are there for the patient. It’s a challenge for everyone to stay in business today and to be honest about the bottom line.
