Jorge Moll Believes In Modern Technology For Hospitals

November 27, 2017 • fitfam

Patient care is one of the most critical aspects of the work of hospitals. Innovation continues to change the way patients are treated, and digital technology is now a big part of different processes in a hospital. Tools created for doctors to help them examine patients while retrieving a complete medical history. Modern technology introduces more voice controlled devices and possibilities of bed-side scans ( Gone are the days when patients had to wait a long time for their doctor to find out all about their medical history by deciphering some other doctor’s handwriting on a little card. Modern technology is now more prominent than ever in hospitals, and medical centers and scientists are working on advancements every day.


There are several benefits of continuing introduction of modern technology in hospitals, and Jorge Moll knows it very well. He is the owner of the most significant hospital group in the country (Scholar.Google). He is very passionate about introducing this kind of technology to as many hospitals in Brazil as possible. It is because there are several improvements between the doctors, their patients and other non-medical staff that makes hospitals run smoothly every day.


Doctors can collaborate more efficiently and quickly share relevant information about patients, reducing the amount of time people have to wait for treatment. The doctor can increase the time spent with the patient, and the attention can be focussed on the person rather than on the files back in the office. They can find the information quicker and on the spot, making the patient less anxious and more comfortable.


Jorge Moll believes that tablets and smartphones are now an essential part of hospitals and the only way to help medical staff adapt to this new way of patient care is to introduce it slowly and give them time to get used to it.


This way doctors will be encouraged to collaborate and share their knowledge on a more active basis, and the patients will feel more at ease as well. Modern technology will also allow the new medication to reach patients and help them sooner since it will speed up the research, testing and distribution process.

Roberto Santiago has Developed the Manaira Shopping Mall into A Timeless Retail Gem

October 25, 2017 • fitfam

Today, malls are big business in many countries around the world. The situation is no different in Brazil. Many like shopping malls because they encourage family and communal bonding. Additionally, they are the true definition of a one-stop-shop. All sorts of products and services are found within the precincts of malls. Consequently, it is highly commendable that Brazilian entrepreneurs, Roberto Santiago had the foresight to develop a mall close to three decades ago. Located in the city of Joao Pessoa, the mall still holds the title of the largest mall in the state of Paraiba.

Roberto Santiago has always been an entrepreneur at heart. While the Business Administration graduate from the University Center of Joao Pessoa briefly worked at Café Santa Rosa, he soon realized that he was not cut out for employment. Soon after he founded his first business, Cartonnage.

Roberto Santiago decided to develop the Manaira shopping mall in 1987. That year, he purchased a prime plot of land in the city and commenced construction on the large facility soon after. The mall took a total of two years to construct and stood at over 100 thousand square meters. Owing to the dozens of shopping stores at the mall, it quickly became an attraction among Joao Pessoa’s residents owing to the versatility of products and services that it possessed. Since 1989, the mall has only been expanded on one occasion, in 2003, to add a new gourmet area.

Above all the Manaira shopping mall guarantees relaxation and entertainment. There is a wide range of entertainment options at the mall including a gaming area for children, a bowling alley, and about a dozen movie theatres. The movie theatres are particularly popular among the public as a few of them are exclusively 3D theatres. With these amenities and the large crowds that frequent the mall on a daily basis, any visitor is guaranteed unrelenting indoor entertainment.

Hungry? No problem, the Manaira shopping has a raft of eating options. Like most other malls on the planet, it features a food court stocked with numerous affordable meal options. However, the mall also differs from others in that it has a broader array of dining options, including fine-dining restaurants and a very popular gourmet area opened in 2014.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Roberto has built on his success with the Manaira shopping mall to expand his business interests. Today, he runs a number of other business in different sectors including entertainment and real estate. His biggest investment in recent years, however, is another mall – the Mangabeira shopping mall. Also located in Joao Pessoa, this second mall was completed in 2013 and is already considered one of the busiest in the city.
