Health managers are seriously concerned about the service implications of the latest HSE exit package which they say is clouded in confusion and has a completely unacceptable timescale which will not enable them to prepare contingency plans to ensure continuity of services. Maureen Browne reports.
The paradigm of care needs to be changed to adopt methodologies appropriate to the needs of the population and to improve patient experience, if we are to maintain and improve quality while taking out cost, write Dr. Peter Lachman, Lead International Faculty RCPI, and Paul Rafferty, Quality Improvement & Organisational Consultant.
The new hospital groups could utilise an Academic Healthcare Centre (AHC) model to provide overarching governance structures for the relationship between hospitals within the groups and their relationship to their primary academic partners, Prof. John R. Higgins, former Chair of the Strategic Board for the Establishment of Hospital Groups, told a meeting of the HMI South Region in the South Infirmary/Victoria University Hospital, Cork. Maureen Browne reports.
In HIQA we recognise that the regulation of residential and residential respite services for children and adults with disabilities provided by the HSE, private organisations or voluntary bodies will present challenges for providers and managers, writes Phelim Quinn.
Mark Solon suggests that health managers can be proactive in making their own retirement arrangements – whether through additional voluntary pension provision, savings and investments - or by adjusting their expectations of when they plan to retire and the type of retirement they want to have.
The HMI is the professional body for healthcare managers across all sectors of the health services in Ireland. Its overall aim is the development of standards of management competence and practice. We inform, educate and involve members and stakeholders in professional development and networking activities.
