Why don’t healthcare providers want efficiency/optimization consulting? Hospitals need the money. This is my passion and I don’t understand why it doesn’t sell.

Many don’t have the money and the industry inherently struggles with the competing priorities of clinicians and operations. Also in my experience almost all are super behind on HIPAA compliance.

Yeah I think its just hard to get consulting dollars prioritized over everything else that they are up against.

smart

Not in the field, but it probably not because of money. People would pitch 100% contingent work if there was interest and a lot of low hanging fruit, but cost was the barrier. That said, I don’t know the reason though...

Yeah that’s a good point.

If this is your passion, then go figure out what you're getting wrong. Having worked in hospitals/that environment, your statement is already raising red flags for me about your understanding of the healthcare system.

Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
