  1. David,

    It’s this type of out-of-the-box thinking that policy wonks, financial advisors, medical professionals, economists and politicians need to take more seriously if they hope to successfully reform the healthcare industrial complex.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Dr Stanford, and all Intelligent ME-P Readers

    We received more than a dozen emails requesting the unedited version of Dr. Marcinko’s interview with the Arkansas Medical News. It seems that some of our very astute readers realize that the “right-of-final-review” is almost never granted when a reporter is on deadline. So, feel free to read the edited version yourself; and then compare and contrast it with the uneditied version.

    Best Practices, Stimulus Can Help Hospitals in Recession

    STEVE BRAWNER / Published Tuesday, March 31, 2009 11:03 am
    It’s a tough time for Arkansas hospitals, but according to one expert in medical finances, they can improve their financial performance by incorporating sound business practices. The federal stimulus package can help.

  3. Ann and Dr. Sanford,

    Dr. Marcinko is correct about the poor future outlook for hospitals; at least for now.

    For example, employment at US hospitals fell 0.7 percent in March 2009 to a seasonally adjusted 4,709,900 people, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. The number of people employed was 700 fewer people than in February and 110,800 more than a year ago.

    Without the seasonal adjustment, which removes the effect of fluctuations due to seasonal events, hospitals employed 4,697,500 people in March, 2,000 fewer than in February and 110,000 more than a year ago.

    Things might improve if these entities become more demand driven [patient focused], rather than suply driven [profit motived].

  4. Dr. Marcinko,

    According to this report in HealthcareFinanceNews, hospitals that provide more intensive and costly care do not provide better-quality care, so says the study published in Health Affairs.

    Now, tell us all something we didn’t know, already?

  5. Dr. Marcinko,

    The CEO of a Cambridge, Mass. based hospital recently wrote a great blog post about how his own health issues have impacted his views of healthcare reform.
