I am excited to welcome you to Transforming Outcomes, a blog dedicated to highlighting the importance of skin, preventing complications, and improving patient care. This is an opportunity for us to expose you to the true essence of 3M and help you drive change within healthcare.
When I left clinical medicine nearly 20 years ago, I did so with the continued drive to make a difference in people’s lives. To create and commercialize solutions to the challenges we managed and researched every day in the hospital. And, I came to 3M because of the breadth and depth of technology we have at our fingertips and how we apply that science to solve problems in healthcare. Now, as we bring in the world class wound care portfolio and expertise of KCI to the 3M family, I am even more excited about working together to deliver better outcomes with enhanced patient experiences.
Through this blog, we hope to engage in a conversation with those of you on the front lines of healthcare, challenge your thinking about the biggest problems in medicine, and deliver insights to lead to better care and improved health of our communities.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believeAnatole France
Welcome and enjoy the conversation.
