Say you want to train everyone at a hospital on a best practice or keep them informed on what you're doing so that they can help. You probably won't succeed if you keep your ideas to yourself.
Welcome back to our regular round-up of five healthcare news articles that you need to be reading this week. Sometimes there are more than five. (Okay, most times.)
This week we seemed to read over and over that what makes an initiative work - or fall apart - is how much collaboration goes into it. Sometimes that means working within a single provider to optimize the supply chain processes or patient care training.
And sometimes that means reaching out to other healthcare providers to pool resources or - horror of horrors - working with regulators to improve everyone's healthcare.
