Innovation in Health care and dancing into the night
By Shikha Sharma
A short bus ride in the morning took us to Universidad Catolica Argentina , the morning air was wonderfully fresh and invigorating …at the University sitting in a huge hall we heard the social collaborative efforts happening in Buenos Aires …..and post that we got an opportunity to play peer consultants to a company trying to bring innovation in the healthcare practice in Buenos Aires ….which was ….the right to dignified and loving death ..
In Buenos Aires the terminally ill and others who have a measured lifespan are taken to the hospital
In last 100 days of their life , where in the cold environment of the hospital room , surrounded by ticking gadgets and unknown faces they spend their last days .. This company is trying to bring the concept of staying home in the last days with the family and yet getting the best of the medical care by visiting Nurses  and Doctors .the Challenges they are facing are immense , firstly they provide this service completely free , so the entire cost of the service is being borne by the entrepreneurs themselves …..the patients love this service , the family is so happy that they offer small donations but the larger concept is still struggling to get the Goverment attention , despite the fact that the it Brings a Huge saving to public funds . Which are in any case at a precarious low ..
Our group had a good mix of Doctors and people in the Medical Industy , so many charts were made and plans were drawn up ……..
For the evening we donned our BMW  white T shirts and were off to watch Polo .
Polo we learnt had originated in India and brought by the British to Argentina . The eveing was spent in jiving away well into the midnight ……..There was a live professional rock band and surprise of the evening was ……well our very own BMW Forum Rock Band , our rock stars from the forum came complete with bandanas , masks and all , and I personally loved the improvised Guitars …..
