Visit to Narayana Hrudayalaya
As a part of an outreach-cum-planning event, the IIMBx team comprising PRAs, video editors and studio team, along with the Manager and MOOCs Chairperson, paid a visit to Narayana Hrudayalaya (NH) on 11th August, 2021. This was a day-long visit that was aimed at getting a good grasp of management processes and operations in a hospital set-up. The visit began with the team’s interaction with Dr Devi Shetty, Chairman, Narayan Group of Hospitals, who spoke about the challenges of healthcare systems and how organisations like Narayana Hrudayalaya are adapting to rapidly evolving needs of patients, especially in the post-Covid scenario. This was followed by a tour of the facilities around the hospital and the health city including OPD, Paediatric Cardiac ICU, Nursing Stations, Emergency Ward, Cancer centre etc facilitated by Mr. Nagaraja Pani, Program Manager Chairperson’s Office NH. There were also interactions with senior management personnel which gave the team a comprehensive picture about the need for improved training for healthcare and hospital personnel in modern-day management practices.
The IIMBx team is soon planning to launch a Certificate course in Hospital Management.
