The Proper Dose
Technology can reduce the risks and costs associated with the delivery of medications at hospitals worldwide
A doctor operates on the wrong leg. A nurse leaves a sponge inside apatient’s chest cavity. A heart surgeon bypasses the wrong artery.

And more often than we would like to think.
Spain Is Open for Business
Politics Aside, Spain Offers an Appetizing Opportunity for Investors 2016 has been a tough year for Spain. After two elections and 10 months without a government, the center-right People’s Party, led by Mariano Rajoy, was finally able to grab the reins of power, albeit without a majority of seats in parliament. Another election could be in the offing as early as May. Beneath the political tumult, however, the economy is quietly humming along. The IMF has lifted its estimate of Spain’s economic growth to 3.1 percent for 2016, making it the envy of the developed world.
