Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.Was Ahab Truly the Evilest King in Israel's History?What Was Ahab Known For?1 Kings 16:30 states that “Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the Lord than any of those before him.” The first major story follows how he worshipped the pagan gods Baal and Asherah, and Elijah decreed there would be a drought to punish Israel for rejecting God (1 Kings 16:29-17:1). Elijah spent seven years in hiding, first at a brook and later in the town Zarephath (which was in Sidon, Jezebel's home country). Then Elijah told Ahab to assemble priests of Baal at Mount Carmel, where he made a challenge: see whether God or Baal would set an altar on fire (1 Kings 18:16-24). After God set Elijah's altar on fire, Elijah killed all the priests of Baal. Ahab told Jezebel what happened and she wanted Elijah killed (1 Kings 19:1-2). Fortunately, these plans failed and as 2 Kings 2 shows, Elijah never died—he went directly to heaven.Episode Links:Pfizer's RSV Vaccine Math: Kill 4,000 Newborns to Save 300 from RSV.

This episode is brought to you by Set for Life Insurance - a trusted partner in disability insurance for physicians. Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, also known as BootstrapMD, discusses the importance of networking for personal and professional growth. He shares his own experiences of how networking helped him start and grow businesses, including meeting a business partner in the bathroom at a conference. Admittedly, Brad struggles with social anxiety and not knowing what to say to people at networking events. Dr. Moo-Ming empathizes with this and suggests stepping out of one's comfort zone and engaging with others who are also interested in meeting new people. He addresses the importance of attending conferences and events that align with one's interests and curiosity. Looking for something specific? Here you go! 00:00:06 Networking is essential for personal and professional growth. 00:06:00 Explore new interests for growth. 00:13:00 Find conferences and masterminds. 00:16:39 Benefits of joining a mastermind. 00:22:09 Pay for valuable networking experiences. 00:30:34 Networking is key for success. 00:33:59 Networking is essential for success. More on Dr. Woo-Ming: Dr. Mike Woo-Ming's journey began after graduating from the Mayo Clinic in 1999, brimming with ambition and ready to make a mark on the world of medicine. As a dedicated family physician in Southern California, he cherished his work but yearned for more than the administrative burdens that were increasingly taking over his practice. Driven by a desire to diversify his income streams and truly make a difference in people's lives, he embarked on a path that would reshape his career. Today, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming wears multiple hats as the proprietor of a medical marketing company, a publishing company, and a devoted owner or co-owner of several health practices, specializing in weight loss and wellness. In an unexpected twist, he rediscovered his love for medicine along this transformative journey. One of the key pillars of Dr. Woo-Ming's success lies in his belief in the power of mentoring and networking. Recognizing that "success leaves clues," he has cultivated meaningful relationships with some of the leading figures in the digital marketing arena. Drawing from his experiences in the medical field, he understands that to excel, one must learn from the best. Just as aspiring surgeons study under renowned mentors, Dr. Woo-Ming has harnessed the same principle in both business and personal development, forging a path to success that continues to inspire others.

At the Universities of Florida and Porto, and in close collaboration with CAE Healthcare, Willem van Meurs, PhD in control engineering, Toulouse, France (1991), designed simulators for medical student education, anesthesia, intensive care, emergency medicine, pediatrics, and labor and delivery. These and similar devices all but eliminated training of basic interventions and common critical incidents on live animals and real patients. Pedagogical conditions can be optimized without concern for patient safety. Total sales of the simulators developed by the teams Dr. van Meurs led or participated in now exceed 1 billion dollars. These simulators rely on mathematical models of cardiorespiratory physiology and pharmacology. He has a special interest in fetal and neonatal physiology. He is a past president of SESAM and the author of Modeling and Simulation in Biomedical Engineering, McGraw-Hill (2011), and of The Dolls' Engineer, a personal journey through three decades of medical simulation, SimEdita (2023).

It's clear that we need to fix the way we measure the value of new medicines. Current methods fail to account for the benefits to caregivers, the long-term savings from keeping a job or avoiding the hospital, and the countless scientific discoveries that a new drug can lead to. But there is a solution according to this week's guest, biotech investor Peter Kolchinsky. He talks about his new study that looks at innovative ways to assess the real value of medicine. Peter explains how insurers use cost-effective math to determine what drugs they will and won't cover, and alternative methods that take into account patient and caregiver needs. Plus, Terry and Bob discuss some must-pass healthcare bills for the chronic disease community.

This epic three-part series comes to a close today! In this episode, Dr. Kuba and Bethany talk about the specific details of how they conducted the meeting with Thief to determine if she was “guilty.” Meetings like this can be very difficult to navigate as emotions swell. However, Dr. Kuba and Bethany tag-teamed the meeting in a way that helped the truth of the situation to emerge. In fact, Bethany, who was still struggling with the idea of the triple firing, states that the evidence that emerged in this specific meeting with the Thief gives her resolve that she and Dr. Kuba were making the right decision in terminating the Thief's employment.

Sometimes, it takes direct experience to understand the value of innovation. Born out of personal crisis, Luminoah is developing a solution to enteral nutrition, or tube feeding, that will dramatically improve patient quality of life.In Episode #27 of the MedTech Speed to Data podcast, Key Tech's Andy Rogers talks with Luminoah CEO Neal Piper about bringing much-needed innovation to in-home care.Need to knowTube feeding is extremely common — Every year, half a million new patients, from infants to geriatric patients, can't swallow solids or liquids and require an alternate means of nutrient supply.Enteral nutrition lets patients live at home — A patient with long-term needs has a gastric feeding tube inserted through their abdomen into their stomach so they can leave the hospital.Yet the current standard of care is bulky — Patients must manage an IV pole, peristaltic pump, replaceable nutrient bags, and two meters of tubing.Slow pumps limit freedom further — Patients become defined by their illness, unable to go to work or school.Current products do not track data — Because tracking nutrient consumption is difficult, many patients are readmitted to the hospital for malnutrition.The nitty-grittyNeal's decision to enter the enteral nutrition sector was not the result of market analysis or laboratory research. “It came out of a personal need for my wife and I when my son, Noah, turned three years old. He started choking on his saliva and food.” Doctors at the UVA Children's Hospital discovered a tumor in the base of Noah's skull that prevented him from eating or drinking. Noah rang the bell and ended his therapy after 18 months of chemotherapy.“Fortunately for us, we had a really positive outcome,” Neal said, but the experience opened his eyes to the challenges kids and adults face in similar situations. “Everyone says, don't obsess about the solution, obsess about the problem, and that's what we did.”After interviewing GI surgeons, nutritionists, distributors of feeding solutions, and many patients, Neal confirmed that Noah's experience was not unique. “The major challenge that patients are dealing with is a lack of portability, an unintuitive approach, and not being able to track and be empowered with data.”Data that made the difference:Understanding the problem can justify a research program, but it does not explain how Luminoah could raise $1 million seed and $6 million Series A rounds in a tough investment climate. Noah explained how his team pressure-tested what he calls the 5 P's of business development:Product Validation: Can you design a manufacturable product that solves the problem?Plan: What's your go-to-market strategy? What does the financial model look like? Patent strategy: Can you protect the technology?People: Can you find experienced people to drive the project forward?Pathway: Can you get from development through 510(k) approval?“Three and a half years in, we're about a month away from design three,” Noah explained. “We've got a working device we're submitting to the FDA for 510(k) approval with clearance anticipated in 2024.”Learn how the Charlottesville, Virginia, biotech ecosystem and a community of enteral feeding patients supported Luminoah's journey in the full video here:

Eminent Orthopedic Surgeon Reveals Secrets to Getting Back to Golf and Improving Handicaps After Joint ReplacementRecent surveys of golfers found that it can take an average of up to 4.73 months to get back on the course after hip replacement and up to 5.1 months for knee replacement. This stands in stark contrast to patients who undergo hip and knee replacement with Richard Berger, M.D., a renowned joint replacement surgeon at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush and Rush Medical Center, Chicago who has treated several professional and amateur golfers. When Dr. Berger's hip replacement patients ask when they can return to an 18-hole game, they are surprised to hear, “four to six weeks.”While golfers aren't pounding the pavement like runners, years of stress on the lower extremities means joints can take a beating. However, if someone is fortunate enough to have Dr. Berger for joint replacement, they can safely—and rapidly—get back to the joy of golfing. Why? Because he uses a minimally invasive hip replacement procedure that eliminates the need to cut muscle, ligaments, or tendons. The result is a vastly shortened recovery period with less pain.And that's not the only reason for the quick recovery. Patients of Dr. Berger say his medical team receive a list of recommended pre-surgery exercises and protein drinks; and advise patients to use a “Game Ready” ice machine to reduce swelling after surgery. In addition, Dr. Berger prescribes a variety of medications that involve multiple pathways so patients experience less pain and can stop taking them days after surgery.Steeped in mechanical engineering from his time at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Berger has patented designs on his surgical instruments.

Why are you worried about how they're going to pay for their treatment? That's not your worry. That's for someone else to deal with. Jaz's Introduction:Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and this Interference Cast, we're going to cover the topic of treatment coordinators. Is it right for your practice? We hear from Emma Yates, who is a nurse turned into a treatment coordinator. And a treatment coordinator, if you haven't heard of this term before, is someone who is kind of in between the reception team and the dentist, right? They've got enough clinical knowledge to discuss the pros and cons of different treatment and help the patient in their journey to find out what's the best treatment for them and also help them to pay for their treatment, how to finance it and answer those niggling queries they sometimes have and sometimes patients have to wait some time to hear from the dentist. But that treatment coordinator is a friendly phrase, right? They're not the scary dentist. They're a friendly face. They're an advocate for the patient. And I've seen over the past few years, lots of different practices adopt the treatment coordinator model. Now, I'm not sure if it's just a UK thing or a worldwide thing, but this is definitely becoming more integrated in dental practices. So if you're a principal wondering if this is the right move for you, or if you're maybe a nurse thinking, hey, you know, could I be a treatment coordinator? Or perhaps you're an associate and you like the idea of your practice, having a treatment coordinator, and maybe you can send them this episode to weigh out the pros and cons of it as per the discussion that we have with Emma. So let's join Emma now. And at the end in my outro, I'll let you know how you can claim CPD for this episode. Main Episode:Emma Yates, welcome to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. How are you? [Emma]I'm good. Thank you. How are you? [Jaz]Yes, absolutely brilliant. It's a Saturday. I was working clinical this morning. I've had a couple hours of de stress, but now, I love, I'm doing the bit, which I love speaking to different people, learning, sharing. And today's topic is treatment coordinators of which you are for the past six years. As you told me before we hit the record button, I have so many questions for you, like so many practices could be employing this way of working. And they probably have so many questions. I'd be hesitant for some reason, so many concerns before doing such a big step.

We're often tempted to live our lives out of our emotions where ugly things like frustration, anger, jealousy, and impatience rise to the surface. But love is patient. Love wins over difficult people. Love wins over unlovable people. But it's never something we can do in our own strength. In this message, Jill Briscoe explores patience as an outpouring of love and why allowing God to teach us long-suffering will transform the gift of love we give to others into a kindness the world seldom sees.

This week we discuss an important 'general cardiology' question - namely, do all exertional chest pain patients need an echocardiogram. In this debate from the World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery, we hear 2 noted authorities in non-invasive imaging. First up is Dr. Carolyn Altman of Texas Children's Hospital taking the stance that it is indicated in the majority and following Dr. Altman is Dr. Kenan Stern of Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital defending the role of discretion in these decisions and how 'one size may not fit all'. Both authorities provide deep insights into general cardiology and the nuances of evaluating a common cardiology complaint seen in general practice.
In this episode, Doug King, Senior VP & CIO at Northwestern Medicine, delves into the transformative role of technology in healthcare. As healthcare systems increasingly integrate cutting-edge technology, how will clinicians adapt? Can AI truly be a reliable "team member" in patient care? As the borders between clinical and consumer data blur, what ethical considerations should be taken into account? Doug argues that the influx of data, while invaluable, also presents the challenge of discerning "signal" from "noise." How should healthcare institutions prepare for this exponential increase in data, and what strategies can help in filtering valuable information? Lastly, when it comes to forming valuable partnerships with vendors, Doug emphasizes the importance of shared mission and culture. Listen in to explore these questions and more.

Acting on climate change is often framed as having to give stuff up, to cost more money, to make sacrifices. Yet in healthcare we find the opposite can often be true: there are many actions we can take which reduce the carbon footprint of healthcare which actually end up with better outcomes for our patients. In this episode, we hear from two examples of that. Singing for breathing is a type of social prescribing to help people with chronic lung disease manage their breathlessness, reducing their need to be reliant on healthcare to do this, while also finding joy and a sense of community. Stephen is one patient who has benefited from this service, and will tell us more about the impact it had on his life. In another example, Lynn Riddell, an HIV consultant will tell us how a change in their clinical pathway helped a cohort of patients reduce the amount of travelling to and from the clinic, still manage their condition safely and give them back precious time and control. https://www.bartscharity.org.uk/our-news/singing-sessions-to-improve-patients-lung-health/

[11:07] Decoding the Significance of mTOR: A Key Player in Health and Longevity · mTOR, a crucial biological molecule, regulates cell growth and repair based on nutrient availability. · mTOR is linked to numerous chronic diseases and is pivotal in determining longevity and aging. · Balancing mTOR activation and deactivation is crucial for overall health. Modern civilization and food availability have disrupted this balance, with mTOR often remaining constantly active. · Excessive mTOR activation, primarily due to frequent carbohydrate consumption, is associated with chronic diseases and accelerated aging. · Understanding mTOR's role offers insights into preventing chronic diseases and promoting longevity through lifestyle and dietary choices. [21:39] Rethinking Weight Loss: Why Conventional Approaches Aren't Working · The traditional "eat less and exercise more" approach is ineffective in combating weight gain. · Weight gain is primarily driven by the hormone insulin, not just the total calorie intake. · Insulin signals the body to store fat, so certain macronutrients like carbohydrates and glucose play a significant role in fat storage. · Reducing calories from these specific macronutrients, rather than simply reducing overall calorie intake, can be more effective in promoting weight loss. [33:42] The Impact of Insulin and Other Diabetes Drugs on Longevity · High insulin levels, primarily caused by dietary factors, contribute to various chronic diseases and health risks. · While insulin is life-saving for people with type one diabetes during acute episodes, it has long-term adverse effects related to chronic diseases like cancer, heart attack, and Alzheimer's disease. · The manipulation of glucose levels in the body through certain drugs such as Metformin, Rapamycin, and Acarbose highlights their potential for impacting longevity and preventing chronic diseases. However, further research is needed to fully understand their mechanisms and effects on humans. [43:58] Reevaluating the Relationship Between Dietary Fat and Cardiovascular Disease · Blood cholesterol's role in heart attack risk is relatively small compared to factors like type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic disease, and smoking. · Statins, drugs designed to lower blood cholesterol, slightly reduce heart attack risk, but other factors have a more substantial impact. · The low-fat dietary experiment that began in the 1960s and 70s, along with increased sugar consumption and seed oils, may have contributed to the current epidemic of chronic diseases and obesity.

September 22, 2023 Ray, Mark, and Scott discuss questions that came into the Urology Coding and Reimbursement Group:We are looking to hire a certified coder. We are open to the position being remote if the candidate has urology experience. If you know anyone interested, please send them my way. Also, feel free to email me your resume or if you have any questions.Patient has a nurse visit for removal of a foley catheter that was placed during a procedure with a 00-day global (i.e TURBT). Visit was 2 days after surgery. Documentation by nurse states; Pt in for foley cath removal. 10 ml sterile water removed from balloon, balloon deflated, foley cath removed. Pt tolerated well. Should we be billing a 99211 nurse visit, a 51700 for bladder irrigation or considered part of the surgical package and would not be billable? My question is what if I use a modifier that Coding Today indicates a modifier is required, and the insurance company still denies the second procedure with the modifer as included in the primary procedure, such as CPT's 52332 and 52005-59. Is this appealable?To clarify the Assistant Surgeon, is this is completely separate from a pre op consult to place stents for ureteral identification or an intraop consult for cystoacopy or foley placement or to repair a bladder injury?Mark Painter and PRS ConsultingSchedule a call with Mark Painter / PRS ConsultingUrology Documentation, Coding, and Billing CertificationFor Urologists and APPs (Click Here for Pricing, More Information, and Registration)Documentation, Coding, and Billing Fellowship - Urology (DCB-FS) For Coders, Billers, and Admins (Click Here for Pricing, More Information, and Registration)Documentation, Coding, and Billing Specialist Certification (DCB-SC)Documentation, Coding, and Billing Master Certification (DCB-MC)Urology Advanced Coding and Reimbursement Seminar(Click Here for More information and Registration) Las Vegas, December 1 & 2, 20238 am - 4:30 pm Friday, 8 am - 3:30 pm SaturdayNew Orleans, January 26 & 27, 20248 am - 4:30 pm Friday, 8 am - 3:30 pm SaturdayReserve your spot and save!As a Urology Coding and Reimbursement Podcast listener, you get access to a discount (expires 8/31/23).Use code: 24UACRS733Get signed up today and get peace of mind knowing you will be prepared for all the upcoming changes.The Thriving Urology Practice Facebook group.The Thriving Urology Practice Facebook Group link to join:https://www.facebook.com/groups/ThrivingPractice/ Join the discussion:Urology Coding and Reimbursement Group - Join for free and ask your questions, and share your wisdom.Click Here to Start Your Free Trial of AUACodingToday.com

In episode 60 of Derms and Conditions, our host, James Q. Del Rosso, DO, sits down with Cheri Frye, MD, the residency program director of dermatology at Howard University. The 2 discuss how to address skin care with patients and key products that should be incorporated into a skin care routine for specific skin types and populations. Dr Del Rosso begins by asking Dr Frye about her approach to advising the general patient on their skin care. She notes that interest in skin care has grown tremendously, and dermatologists are rightfully being increasingly viewed as the foremost skin care experts. She recommends that dermatologists embrace and directly incorporate skin care into management recommendations for patients and should also consider offering products to patients directly in the office for efficiency and convenience. She also stresses the importance of validating the patient's concerns by confirming that their dermatologist is the appropriate person to consult. Next, Dr Del Rosso delves deeper into Dr Frye's more specific recommendations for skin care. She notes that while it is difficult to generalize, data supports typical concerns that are more prevalent in certain populations, such as hyperpigmentation with darker skin tones. She recommends incorporating toners with salicylic acid and glycolic acid into acne treatment routines to tackle pigmentation. Additionally, she acknowledges that patients reluctant to discontinue using an unessential type of skin care product that may not be optimal for their skin should instead be switched to a better alternative to maintain the patient-physician relationship. They then switch topics to discuss skin care tips for dry skin. Dr Frye mentions that African American patients should use moisturizers rich in ceramides, as their skin is likely to be more deficient in this lipid based on current evidence. She emphasizes the need for open discussion and education about these skin care trends with patients. Dr Del Rosso finishes by asking about some common helpful ingredients. Dr Frye notes that ascorbic acid has beneficial antioxidant properties. She also favors niacinamide 3-5% for its antioxidant activity and recommends having glycolic acid in moisturizers specifically for concerns with dyschromia. Tune in to this episode to learn more!
One of the questions I often get asked is this (actually, it's more of a comment usually than a question): Someone says, “Seems like this whole transformative primary care thing is pretty much just, let's go back to the old country doctor. Let's just have a single doctor out there taking care of patients like a Norman Rockwell painting.” To which I reply (and I'm channeling many experts, including my guest Robert Pearl, MD, when I do), “Yeah … except no.” In the golden olden days of the “ye olde country doctor,” there was a lot of art in medicine and a lot less science. If someone got cancer or even heart disease, what was required, fairly exclusively, was comfort and compassion. Now, first and foremost so there's no confusion, am I dismissing the importance of bedside manner and of providing comfort and compassion? Hell no. Would rather have that any day of the week than deal with a “drive-by PCP” or “drive-by specialist” with the throughput of a freeway who has no idea what I may befall the second I step out of his or her exam room. But in the olden days, medicine was fundamentally art with a lot less science … because there wasn't much science. For the most part, we didn't have data. Or MRIs. This was before the whole pharma industry for the most part. We had weird heroin-infused tinctures, but we didn't have oncology meds or biomarkers or even statins for Pete's sake. Consider all the new diabetes meds and biologics and artificial joints and sub-subspecialists who have, through data and advanced analytics by looking at patients across the country, proven out some best practices that might be fairly unintuitive—or disproven some conventional wisdom. It's a different and much more complicated world today, and what's required now is a healthy appreciation for not only the art of medicine but also the science. And science inherently means that, yeah, there are standards of care to be adhered to. That's what science means. There are rules and better ways to do things as proven by looking at the data and not relying primarily on personal recollections of what may or may not have worked in the past. Listen to the shows with Bob Matthews (EP315) or Alex Akers (EP154) for more on this topic, but this all leads me to the interview with Dr. Robert Pearl in this healthcare podcast where we get into some concepts that he covers in his new book, Uncaring. In this episode, we're talking about some how-tos for being a leader of doctors, going about that against the backdrop of this evolving art and science of medicine dynamic, and the impact of this evolving art and science dynamic on physician culture and self-esteem. Because (spoiler alert) if a doc is following evidence-based guidelines, not relying solely on their own personal experience, does that make said doc feel like they are being devalued and that they are but a cog in the wheel and practicing so-called “cookie cutter” medicine? So many nuances, so little time. But, yeah, there's a lot going on which, at its core, is this tension that can play out in some big bad ways. I asked Dr Pearl for some advice for today's healthcare leaders, and he did not disappoint. He suggested using a model that he calls the A to G model, and, in short, you've got to have: A: an aspirational vision B: behaviors C: context D: data E: engagement (throughout the organization and also with the patient) F: faculty G: governance You'll have to listen to the episode for the why and how of each of these. My guest today, as aforementioned, is Dr. Robert Pearl. I am sure that most of our Relentless Tribe who are listening to the show today already know Dr. Pearl, but in short, he was the CEO of Kaiser Permanente for 18 years. Now he hosts a podcast called Fixing Healthcare. He teaches at the Stanford Graduate School of Medicine and Business. He writes articles for Forbes and elsewhere. He's also an author. He wrote a great book called Mistreated, and now there's a new one called Uncaring. I would recommend both. Also mentioned in this episode is Zeev Neuwirth, MD. You can learn more at robertpearlmd.com. Robert Pearl, MD, is the former CEO of The Permanente Medical Group (1999-2017), the nation's largest medical group, and former president of the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (2009-2017). In these roles, he led over 10,000 physicians and 38,000 staff and was responsible for the nationally recognized medical care of 5 million Kaiser Permanente members on the west and east coasts. Named one of Modern Healthcare's 50 most influential physician leaders, Dr. Pearl is an advocate for the power of integrated, prepaid, technologically advanced, and physician-led healthcare delivery. He serves as a clinical professor of plastic surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine and is on the faculty of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he teaches courses on strategy and leadership and lectures on information technology and healthcare policy. He is the author of Mistreated: Why We Think We're Getting Good Health Care—And Why We're Usually Wrong, a Washington Post bestseller that offers a roadmap for transforming American healthcare. All proceeds from the book go to Doctors Without Borders. His most recent book, Uncaring: How the Culture of Medicine Kills Doctors and Patients, was published May 2021. Dr. Pearl hosts the popular podcasts Fixing Healthcare and Medicine: The Truth (formerly Coronavirus: The Truth). He publishes a newsletter with over 13,000 subscribers called Monthly Musings on American Healthcare and is a regular contributor to Forbes. He has been featured on CBS This Morning, CNBC, and NPR, and in TIME, USA Today, and Bloomberg News. He has published more than 100 articles in medical journals and contributed to numerous books. A frequent keynote speaker at healthcare and medical technology conferences, Dr. Pearl has addressed the Commonwealth Club, the World Healthcare Congress, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's National Quality Forum, and the National Committee for Quality Improvement (NCQA). Board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Pearl received his medical degree from the Yale University School of Medicine, followed by a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University. From 2012 to 2017, Dr. Pearl served as chairman of the Council of Accountable Physician Practices (CAPP), which includes the nation's largest and best multispecialty medical groups, and participated in the Bipartisan Congressional Task Force on Delivery System Reform and Health IT in Washington, DC. 04:50 What is the idea of the art of medicine? 09:29 EP407 with Vivek Garg, MD, MBA. 09:32 Why has the intrinsic motivation of doctors plummeted? 09:48 Patient perspective versus doctor subjective response. 12:36 Why is there a fundamental change in what doctors and medical professionals can take pride in? 14:38 What did change management look like in the past? 15:24 “What does a patient really want? They'd like not to have a stroke, a heart attack … in the first place.” 20:23 “How do leaders achieve evolution?” 23:57 “Incentives always work … the problem in medicine is, they rarely work the way you planned.” 24:20 What's the way to make change happen, and why doesn't it involve financial incentives? 28:10 What do leaders in organizations today consistently underestimate? 29:11 What are the three parts of leadership? 29:25 What is the hardest part about leadership? 31:31 Dr. Pearl's two books, Mistreated and Uncaring.

Recently, at my Strategic Coach meeting we reviewed a graphic and concept titled “Transforming Your Industry” and it provided 3 Stages of becoming an Industry Transformer. Stage 1: Conventional Experience Stage 2: Unique Experience Stage 3: Transformational Experience In this episode, Dr. Josh Satterlee shares a devastating example of how conventional healthcare failed a dear friend of his and how that transpired. He also reveals how that doesn't have to be the case and how leveraging digital communication can transform your practice and the patient's experience and outcomes. According to Gino Wickman, you must “systemize the predictable so you can humanize the exceptional.”Josh details how you can leverage digital technology to enhance patient communication in your practice and how that will make you a better provider and avoid the conventional pitfalls that most healthcare deals with in modern medicine. It is time we build remarkable, Unique, or Transformational practices and no longer be mired in the conventional.
