Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] and the Bermuda College announced the fifth presentation in their Eco Lunch & Learns series on Thursday, March 28 from 1.00pm to 2.00pm at the Bermuda College, in The North Hall, Room G301.

A spokesperson said, “Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] and the Bermuda College are very pleased to announce the fifth presentation in their Eco Lunch & Learns series on Thursday, March 28, 2019.

“Bermuda’s healthcare costs are on an unsustainable path. Healthcare costs are projected to hit 1 billion in the next five years. Government now spends more on healthcare than any other sector, including servicing our debt.

“Laure Marshall is a healthcare analytics professional that has been helping hospitals understand their performance through data for the last 10 years. She has worked with NHS hospitals in the UK and hospitals in the US. Laure now works in Bermuda at Nova Limited, building analytics tools for Bermuda’s hospital system. Laure sits on the board of the Bermuda Health Council.

“Laure explains, ‘As a healthcare analyst, I keep up to date on healthcare reports on Bermuda’s population. There are a lot of very high quality reports out there that I think few people outside of healthcare are aware of. These reports demonstrate that the state of healthcare in Bermuda is very precarious. I hope that this presentation will inspire locals to access these reports to learn more for themselves, and also to engage in finding solutions to fix our broken healthcare system.’

“During her presentation, Laure will provide insights into why healthcare in Bermuda is so expensive by summarizing information available in public reports published by the Ministry of Health, Bermuda Health Council and Department of Statistics. This data provides an overview of Bermuda’s health status and how Bermuda’s health outcomes compare globally. Laure’s study reveals how our health impacts what healthcare services we utilise and how that utilisation impacts healthcare costs.
