Our Ranking System Explained

Think “Digg” for Medical Stakeholders

Staff Writers

55842730

More than a few folks have asked about our Medical Executive-Post ranking system? So, a few words of explanation are in order. 

 

A Simple Concept

Ranking is a simple concept. Folks like you [financial advisors; HIT experts; medical professionals, accountants and practice managers; CEOs, CFOs and COOs; health law attorneys; medical clinic managers and health administrators, doctors and nurses, etc] submit articles to us which are then posted. We try to post 1-4 unique stories almost every day. Comments on the articles are accepted too, and often serve to “start the conversation.”

Rising to the Top

Then, subscribers and visitors read the posts and comments, and thereby vote them up or down depending on popularity. We make no distinction among subscribers, casual viewers or regular readers. The best stuff simply rises to the top of the rankings system.

Health Administration Niche Based

In other words, we’re much like a niche electronic newspaper, but for the healthcare administration space. Basically, all healthcare stakeholders [even patients and laymen] are invited; but we are not clinical in nature.

Eschewing Ads

Currently, we have eschewed paid advertising, as all editors, staff writers and contributors work for free. We are “unbiased and un-bought.” And, will remain so to the extent possible.  

Assessment

Well, we all do work for “exposure” and to promote our own books, white papers, dictionaries: www.HealthDictionarySeries.com, innovative ideas, online education courses: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.com, speeches, consulting engagements: www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com; and especially our 1,200 pages, 2-volume, quarterly premium-institutional subscription print journal: www.HealthcareFinancials.comho-journal

Conclusion

And so, your thoughts and comments on this Medical Executive-Post ranking system are appreciated. While we are not perfect; we do strive to be transparent and understandable thought-leaders in our space.

Flying Under the Traditional Media Radar

New Year Health 2.0 Dreams

By Darrell K. Pruitt; DDSpruitt1

Allow me to share with you our health 2.0 networks’ growing advantage in modern communication. I sincerely consider myself a lucky person to have so many friends who have been patient with me while I searched for my voice. Sometimes, it was by trial and error that was agonizing for all, I’m sure. Thanks for your patience. I’ll never let you down.

Medical Executive-Post Growth

Recently, I read an article written by Ann Miller, the Executive-Director of this Medical Executive-Post. It is a healthcare financial blog where I feel honored to be a guest columnist among very sharp physicians and financial analysts. The title of Miller’s article is “Our Executive-Post Growth,” and was posted in October, a little over a month after I started contributing to the blog.

https://healthcarefinancials.wordpress.com/2008/10/13/deeper-financial-management-insight/#comment-2524

Successful “Post” Attributes

Even though Ann Miller attributed the sudden increase in Executive-Post readership to the sudden drop in the stock market and other financial concerns, here is how she unknowingly reacted to our power in numbers:  “Wow! That’s the best word to describe our recent growth!”  So, here is the surprise comment I posted in response to her revelation: 

Exciting Niche Market 

I think we are in a unique position of having achieved a palpable level of significance in the niche market of the traditionally stoic dental industry – yet our presence is still under the radar of popular media, which is also run by vulnerable top-to-bottom managers. I confess that I find that part of the adventure especially exciting in an ornery way. It is sort of like we are stealthily undermining weak, archaic ways of doing business – using transparency for the benefit of dental patients nationwide… and so what if it becomes entertaining now and then.

So what is on the horizon?

The Road Ahead

A few days ago, I read on the ADA News Online that the ADA intends to resurrect “the Association’s flagship Web site and a key online destination for dentists and their patients.”  The article is written by reporter Joe Hoyle and is titled “Reinventing ADA.org.”

http://www.ada.org/prof/resources/pubs/adanews/adanewsarticle.asp?articleid=3364

Assessment

Here is something for your imagination. In the entire US, who do you think will dominate ADA.org from the instant it opens until it is shut down the second time? I say it lasts a week. Please, no wagering. It is my pleasure to serve you. Now, isn’t it about time you grabbed a voice of your own?  Come on out … post, comment and opine … the air is fine. Have a happy new year.

Conclusion

And so, your thoughts and comments on this Medical Executive-Post are appreciated.

Saving Primary Care

The British Reimbursement Experience

Staff Reportersred-cross1 

Recent articles in the medical and lay press, this and other blogs, have focused on the growing shortage of primary care physicians in the United States. Of course, there is plenty of blame to go around; from Congress – to the AMA – to medical specialists and the CPT Coding Committee – the shortage is causing a crisis in the nation’s healthcare system.

More: www.healthcarefinancials.wordpress.com/2008/04/02/physician-compensation-trends

JAMA Speaks

For example, a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association [JAMA] documented that family medicine, at $185,740, has the lowest average salary of the medical specialties.

More: http://certifiedmedicalplanner.com/MDs.aspx

The UK Experience

A preventive medicine doctor commented on Medscape.com, January 2, 2009, “In the UK, whatever the defects of the system – and they are many – they build around GPs, who get $230,000 a year plus 25% performance bonuses. And, of course, they don’t have huge medical school debts.”

Assessment

In the US, [you] “have it backwards. The most valuable doctors — primary care physicians — get paid the least.”
