Jorge Moll is a businessman and leading cardiologist in Brazil particularly in Rio de Janeiro. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Rede D’Or Sao Luiz, a network of hospitals connecting up to 32 hospitals across the country. Moll is an idealist in medicine, as he elaborated in the Health Trends and Impacts of Health Management in Brazil.
The Inspiration to Private Medical Development
According to Moll, the 1970s and ‘80s saw Rio de Janeiro as the epicenter of medicine in Brazil. He was however concerned when the quality of services in medicine began to dwindle due to the public nature of many health institutions.
He was also not happy with the introduction of the SUS model which unified everything and removed the particular identities from the different hospitals. The hospitals, therefore, lost their quality for proper diagnosis and medical excellence. He built the first three institutions to fill this gap, and they were the Copa D’Or, Barra D’Or, and the Quinta D’Or. Learn more about Jorge Moll at Google Scholar.
Difficult False starts
Despite a difficult start full of debts and resistance, Jorge Moll managed to grow in the midst of operators who made huge amounts of money from plain consultancy and gave very little in terms of revenues to the hospitals. In their 2016 reports, Moll explains that they managed to raise substantive revenues for the state and saw improved profits altogether. It’s a social responsibility they feel proud of in their practice.
The Future of Healthcare in Brazil
Dr. Moll presented the Total Health Management System where virtualization gets an alternative from the operator services. He believes in the provision of healthcare without wastage of resources and personnel as well as timely and quality medical cover. He leads in the provision of respected and serious medical options, at affordable costs.
The future, explains Moll, is to ensure that the Network loses no clients due to the economic crisis affecting Brazil and believes that if the same is not curbed, many people will opt for the SUS, or change plans, therefore going for even poor services and less quality medical care.
