Charles Laverty on the critical impact of medical innovation in US competitiveness and public health.

Last week at the European Bifurcation Club meeting in Porto Portugal, ABS co-founder and chief medical officer Dr. Mehran Khorsand presented the ABS bifurcation stenting platform. We met many other dedicated doctor and professionals who are devoting their energy, time and money to creating life-saving and enhancing innovations that will benefit us all. This is why medical innovation is different and deserves to be treated differently.

For all the things that divide us as a nation, medical innovation should stand as a beacon for cooperation. We agree on the problems facing aging population and medical issues that affect too many people like obesity, cancer and heart disease. We agree that Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid are in trouble and that health care costs need to be addressed. Yet from financing to regulatory approval to employment law to tax policy, we miss opportunities to work together.

As mentioned in this article about an earlier post, we need to stop viewing medical innovation and medical innovators as something to be exploited and instead treat them as a critical national asset that benefits each and every one of us, our family and our nation. This is a great place for the Trump Administration and Democratic leaders to work together on an issue that benefits everyone.

Charles Laverty on better ways to be a manager

Having your own business, or running someone else’s, is a huge responsibility.  This is also something that takes up your time and energy in so many ways.  Some boss’s need to become a better manager.

Most bosses are busy throughout an entire day.  They don’t have much time to actually devote to improving the manager skills.  If managers can take a little time to put towards this very important part of their business, if will surely pay off.

Making a few changes to the basics will help.  Just small simple changes with employee interaction will prove great results.

There is no one style fits all for a manager

There is no one fits all style of managing.  You have to develop and hone in on what will work for your skill set.

If you have a motivated and upbeat staff, then this will prove to be valuable.  This will probably even give you employees who exceed target expectations.

As a boss, it is up to you to lead the team.

Tax cuts will help saves lives

Who’s Killing Who?

Charles Laverty on tax cuts to save lives
Charles Laverty on tax cuts to save lives

The new government at hand is starting to take a role in lowering taxes.  In particular, for both large and small businesses.  They might see a tax cuts at about 15 percent.  This is just a bare bones project that is needed to help with research and development funds that are required to keep companies doors to remain open.

Tax cuts can help with innovation

If we do not have pharmaceutical companies implementing new avenues to help with illnesses and without the companies who manufacture medical devices continuing to invent new technology, we as a society will loose out in this benefit.  So in saying, this will in turn cost lives not save them.

I go more in depth on this subject.  Please read more about this topic here.
