Diego Glancszpigel: Unicist Quality Assurance in Healthcare

This lecture on the Unicist Standard applied to Healthcare Quality Assurance is fostering an upgrade in quality in the business.

Envisioning quality assurance requires a mind opening attitude. It requires thinking about reality and its context to define the necessary objects to achieve the objectives.

To have a reliable knowledge, in order to produce results, it is necessary to have installed redundancies in processes. Designing objects implies increasing the amplitude of the unified field one is working on.

This requires a higher level of knowledge on the actual reality. It is necessary to have assured quality in order to grow. But the sound knowledge of the context is necessary in order to assure quality. Therefore this lecture works as a mind-opener.

The unicist ontology of Innovation Blindness in Marketing: The growth killer

The development of unicist technologies and their implementation processes required the research of innovation blindness to develop strategies to avoid it.

Change blindness is a well known and experimented subject. The research was developed by different educational institutions: http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/change/people.shtml

Innovation blindness is an unconscious response of individuals who do not perceive the proposed change, when the conditions to make use of it are not given.

The avoidance of energy consumption to introduce a new task in an individual’s brain is the functionality of innovation blindness.

Causes of innovation blindness

There are social and individual causes.

Social causes

1) When there are utopias implicit in the innovations that are out of reach for a group or society.
2) When the innovation does not respects the myths of a culture.
3) When the innovation disrespects the taboos of a culture.
4) When the innovation modifies the ethics of a culture.

Individual causes

1) When it modifies an individual’s habits.
2) When it modifies the ethics of an individual.
3) When the “functional recreation” by a user requires a level of knowledge the individual doesn’t have.
4) When the ego or the “business” of an individual is affected.
5) When an increase of responsibility of the user is required and s/he has no need to assume it.
6) When an increase of internal freedom of the individual is required.
7) When it stimulates guild or fear of the user.
