Hi Ellen, Nice to get know you here! I don't belong to SCIP. But I think I am one of the senior MI people out of Shanghai. Hope to keep close communication with you and the potential collaboration in future.
Thanks for welcoming to SCIP. Can you recommend any websites or publications, books about doing international company research on the web. There are a number of companies I would like to research as well as service providers such as interior designers and general contractors in Brazil, Estonia, Lithuania and other markets.
Thanks for your interest. The Swiss Healthcare ist undergoing a few changes snce the last ten years. With the new implemented diagnosis related groups, more hospitals will have to close if they do not adapt or make new strategies. This also means that hospitals will have to focus on competition. My thesis says, that an hospital is not focussing on competition and therefore this is not integrated in the strategy. My questions are: is this of importance for the future of the swiss hospital and which CI-tools good be used the best to avoid problems and make the market position stronger.
The analysis is ongoing and the results of interwiewing can be expected in two weeks
As you already know i'm living in Switzerland. I'm working in the Health Care Industrie and writing my dissertation about CI in the hospitals of Switzerland. So if you have some ideas or interesting aspects about this issue in your country....please let me know
Thank you very much
I have some of those books, others don't
Thanks for sharing. I'll look into it.
Very good advice, that Blog you mentioned.
Thank you very much
Be sure I'll mention you on the aknowledgments of my writtings
thank you for your warm welcome.
Seems that everybody in this group are very kind and friendly.
I think that's great. This kind of friendship can be most valuable to all of us.
Well I'm not really an expert in the field, as you mentioned. I'm trying to become one, if time allows me...
I love the CI field and to be something new I'm researching the Web 2.0 field because here in Portugal it's not very used yet by companies, well at least with their consent. So, I'm trying to show that if properly used, Web 2.0 can be very valuable to our companies so they can compete with foreign organizations.
If you know some materials that can assist me in this task I'll be very pleased with the help.
Thank you for your welcome, Ellen. I am a former colleague of Martha Matteo, Ph.D. (Boehringer Ingelheim, SCIP) who took time off to raise a family and care for aging parents. I am applying to grad school for my second master's in communications/information design. While reconnecting with Martha, she introduced me to this group. I look forward to reconnecting with my CI roots! Elaine
I am from Frankfurt, Germany. But Wiesbaden is "just up the road" so to speak (at least for US standards).
It still feels strange not to be going to SCIP'08 this year, but it's for the better. It looks like I will be making another trip to Germany soon. My mother is in the hospital again -- this time with heart related problems. She's only been home for a little over a week from her last stay. Not good!!
Hi Craig, I'm new to this, but I am very open to sharing and learning in our profession. I'll look forward to seeing you at SCIP! We are struggling to deal with my Dad's failing health presently which is taking a lot of energy, esp on Mom whose 90, and with him for almost 61 years. Best, Ellen
