“This book will challenge your thinking about the type of behaviours and traits we need to meet the demands facing healthcare. Although we have elements of collaboration, healthcare is still in silos. Now we have the opportunity to create an engaging model of care that can inspire and drive change with true patient centricity, improved patient outcomes, and a healthcare model that is sustainable.”- Mr Arthur Mitsioulis, Managing Director, OPIS HEALTHCARE
