    Dear Friends,

    Its been a long journey of 15 years for HOSMAC. Since the time HOSMAC was

    founded, I have always believed that there was a gap for information in our in-

    dustry. Since then while,we went about setting up HOSMACs business, in small

    ways we were always making attempts to bridge this gap.

    The last few years have seen rapid growth and the information need gap

    suddenly has increased. We at HOSMAC have been feeding information to you

    in some way. Our first initiative was the HOSMAC Pulse, which received much

    appreciation from the select audience which it addressed. But with the grow-

    ing e-world, we had to get something which addressed you daily and hence we

    launched Healthcare Business alerts. These alerts have been growing steadily

    with more and more of you subscribing to the same.

    It was now time for us to get into the next level and cover a larger audience

    who could benefit from our initiatives. Hence, what you are holding now is the

    result of extensive research and thoughts put together. Due to our experience of

    working with you, we realised the areas of information that you seek. Here in the

    first issue of Healthcare Executive we have dealt with one of the most important

    aspect in healthcare Infrastructure. The magazine will have a theme for every

    issue and all topics of that issue would be around that theme. In the forth com-

    ing issues you will see more of the various themes which will focus on important

    aspects of your business.

    Our investment towards ensuring that you get the best from around the

    world has taken us a step further and we would also showcase some of the

    best practices from around the world. In this issue you will read about Lenders

    Engineers concept from Harvard Business Review. We will continue to strive to

    get such valuable content to you and share with you news and happenings from

    around the world.

    We have a long way to go in order to satisfy your hunger for knowledge. But

    the beginning has been made and I am sure that we would only grow together

    from here. Your support and inputs would be vital for us to help you in making

    smarter business decisions.

    I would be waiting to hear from you on making this better with every issue.
