Better health and less expensive ways to that are always good. .But innovation requires change and change is contrary to the very nature of medical culture. The principal unstated mission of any large organization is to reproduce itself. That means that the practices of any hospital, for example, are mostly the same, day after day, which is a good thing, if what they are doing is good. But not so good when what they are doing is not helping and even hurting, the patients. But no one is really in charge of a culture. It is simply what emerges out of all the little, individual acts, repeated day after day. PP has tools to insinuate your innovation into that practice of everyday medicine.
Palisades Partners knows David and Goliath and how to throw the occasional stone. And we know Sisyphus: everyday you have to push toward the insurmountable without rest. Innovation happens at snail's pace and in an instant. Just depends on who is telling the story. For the entrepreneur or manager, it is usually a long, tortuous slog. But for the medical practitioners, the innovative technologies just sort of appear one day. And the good ones make a real and immediate difference.. The incongruity of timescales is only one of the cultural differences that impinge on success. Do you know the others?
We all know that the current medical environment is both filled with risk and with reward. But many don't think about how it is filled with mythology and misunderstanding, at some of the most basic levels. Recognizing where prejudice drives practice and the rational fails in the face of reality produces a real opportunity to create a compelling narrative for innovation. People working in medicine every day are virtually always to busy too reflect on their work critically and ditto for the industries that serve medicine. We have and can turn that to your advantage in the marketplace...today. Contact us to discuss your needs and hear what PP can do to help.
