From the Editor’s Desk


Dear Readers,


Greetings from Symbiosis!


Any industry, focused on growth and advancement, rigorously seeks out the information, as how technology is leveraged by the stakeholders for providing a safe and quality care to the dependent clientele,


It is the technology, quite often becomes the differentiator between the trendsetter and the traditional business set up.


I am extremely happy to be associated with the publication of Symbiosis Health Times on the occasion of XVII National seminar on Hospital and Healthcare Management, Medico legal Systems and Clinical Research,


This issue has made an' attempt to bring close association between faculties from the different verticals of health care as well as industry experts.


The article on palliative care highlights the stress in improving the quality of life of rising aged population at an affordable cost. The HR managers in any corporate world are always engaged with eliminating the redundancy and at the same time optimizing the scarce resource by enhancing the job satisfaction at all levels. The article on factors affecting job satisfaction level among hospital staff is a real eye opener.


Articles and abstracts conveying various issues on creating awareness as diabetes, Quality enhancement through lean six sigma, inventory control in hospital, team building in hospital, personal protective equipment in dental practice, knowledge bytes and wellness quotes are worth reading.

I am sure, that the information given in this publication, makes an attempt provide an insight, about the happenings in the health care industry.

I personally thank my team mates from all the committees for making the journey successful.
