Summary/Abstract

Healthcare providers are focused on the care of their patients, as they should be, but oftentimes this means that various other priorities, including the business side of healthcare, get put on autopilot. While this approach is certainly understandable, given the rising pressures and limited resources providers face, it’s not beneficial to the hospitals themselves or the larger global healthcare economy long-term. Ironically, it seems that as healthcare providers advise their patients to take a proactive approach to overall personal health and well-being, they themselves sometimes struggle to keep their own organization “healthy”.
