Comprehensive Care International and SHI Consulting Announce Partnership for Effective Integration of Research into Clinical Planning and Design



    TORONTO, July 21 /CNW/ - Comprehensive Care International (CCI) and SHI
Consulting Inc. (SHI) outlined their vision to create a sustainable
operational advantage for hospitals worldwide. Through a combined CCI/SHI
partnership, clients can access a complete range of resources in clinical,

programs, and the development of research infrastructure.
    "This partnership will allow us to provide a much broader range of
services to our clients," says Katherine Jones, president and CEO of CCI. "The
coupling of our innovative clinical programming with SHI's focus on helping
organizations realize success in health research creates a unique value
proposition: together, we will help hospitals worldwide build international
reputations for medical excellence and a competitive edge in knowledge
creation, translation and commercialization."
    "Ultimately our goal is to accelerate the speed at which science leads to
enhanced clinical capabilities and better patient outcomes," adds
Borys Chabursky, president of SHI. "In partnership with CCI, we aim to work
with healthcare organizations to develop context-specific health research
enterprises that build a pervasive culture of innovation and ensure that
innovative approaches to medicine are an integral part of the patient
experience."
    The expanded service offering will be available to all international
markets and will be particularly relevant in regions such as the Middle East,
North Africa and South Asia, where changing demographics and rapid economic
growth have created a demand for heightened access to advanced clinical
services that reflect the unique characteristics of local populations.

programming, the new CCI/SHI team will work with thought leaders in healthcare
practice, administration and research in order to publish and share new ideas
