Value-Based Healthcare from a Mentice Perspective

By Göran Malmberg CEO on May 12, 2016 10:56:24 AM

Value-Based Healthcare is snowballing its way into the gateways of many healthcare systems across the world. We believe that simulation used for refining and verifying interventional skills should play a significant part in shaping the future for Value-Based Healthcare. In this blog article, I will discuss Value-Based Healthcare from a Mentice perspective; continuous skills development and assessment using high fidelity simulation solutions.

A look back at healthcare and simulation in 2012

By Göran Malmberg CEO on Dec 21, 2012 4:16:00 PM


Most analyst expectations for 2012 were highly pessimistic and we can now conclude that the actual development during the year turned out better than expected. In the health care arena, a couple of things, mainly in the United States, stood out.

The hospital “Pit Crew”

By Göran Malmberg CEO on Oct 24, 2012 4:27:00 PM


I am a frequent reader of the Interventional News and most recently I read the issue distributed at the CIRSE congress  [1]  in Lisbon a couple of weeks ago. One of the articles that caught my attention was discussing the use of comprehensive checklists implemented per discipline and in this case targeting interventional radiology. [2]

Tracking return on investment to improve patient safety

Almost every day we read about demands on our healthcare systems to cut expenditure. One of the most common strategies to do this is through the consolidation of hospitals, thus creating larger care units to spread fixed costs and expand patient access to services.

How Many Deaths Are Due to Medical Error? Do we have the right numbers or are we guessing?

By Göran Malmberg CEO on May 14, 2012 4:44:00 PM

Just over a decade ago, the patient safety movement gained strength in the United Kingdom and the United States as both countries were publically humiliated with high profile cases of medical mistakes which led to investigation and two key reports being published in 1999 (The Institute of Medicine’s  To Err is Human [1]  in the US) and in 2000 ( An Organisation with a Memory [2]  in the UK).

Why patients should care if their doctors are using simulation to learn

By Göran Malmberg CEO on Mar 9, 2012 6:10:00 PM

We all read in the newspapers that our hospitals have to cut costs, have not enough trained personnel who also sometimes have to work extreme hours. In Europe we are trying to get working hours down to below 10 hours per day, in the United States residents’ working weeks have to be maximum 80 hours a week! In parallel, medical disciplines are getting more and more advanced with the use of new equipment, new techniques as well as advanced medical devices.
