Disruptive business: Paypal’s Peter Thiel on technology entrepreneurs
In his upcoming book, “Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future,” Peter Thiel looks back on his own experience as a startup investor and a cofounder of PayPal and Palantir to draw lessons about successful entrepreneurship and innovation. Thiel argues that successful people find value in unexpected places and that entrepreneurs and society benefit most when businesses create something new rather than copy existing models.

In this event — the first in a series on disrupters in the tech sector — Thiel will discuss these ideas and others with AEI’s James Glassman. This conversation, followed by an audience Q&A, will give the audience a unique peek into the mind of one of the most successful tech entrepreneurs of our time.

Online Business Technology Helps with Healthcare Staffing

hospital staffingThe medical healthcare staffing solutions field has branched out considerably in the past century. There have been hospitals and doctors since the Ancient Greeks but doctors are no longer the jack-of-all-trades they were like in the past. There are neurologists, dermatologists, radiologists, cardiologists, and many, many more types of doctor today. But it’s not just doctors that have branched out; actual medical facilities have changed and branched out from simple hospitals. There are physical therapy facilities, dentist’s offices, family clinics, and more. A hospital might have a number of facilities like these as a part of their building, but independent offices and facilities can be found all over. Regardless of whether it’s a hospital or an independent facility, they all require qualified, experienced staff in order to run smoothly and efficiently while providing the medical service the general public needs.

Finding the proper staff for a medical facility can be an arduous task depending on how the facility goes about its search. It certainly doesn’t hurt to search locally using local papers and such, but unless the facility is located in or near a big city, the required expertise might not be available in the local area. Setting up a website can greatly help extend the reach of a search, but for the best results, a medical facility looking for staff should look into using a staffing agency such as http://www.katondirect.com. The Medical Staffing Network is an experienced agency that has decades of experience in finding medical facilities the staff they need to properly function. Both hospitals and independent medical offices can greatly benefit from the experience and connections a staffing agency can provide, especially when it comes to highly skilled fields like anesthesiology. It’s certainly not a requirement to use such a service, but not using one is a great way to deprive a medical facility of an access point to experienced, qualified employees.
