In Medical Practice? – Buy this CD-ROM

Regardless of specialty, most doctors quickly realize there are few case model guidelines available to steer them through the day-to-day management maze. One solution is to discuss best-of-breed practices with leading practitioners in order to discern what successful doctors are doing [mentoring concept].

The Problem

Of course, this is a costly and time consuming process with no criteria for success. Today, mentors are even loath to assist as competitive advantage can be lost.

A Solution

A better solution may be to use our Case Models in Healthcare [A Practice Improvement Compendium] to appreciate real-world practice situations and develop personalized approaches for an appropriate course of action. These techniques are so powerful that many business schools center their teaching on them. Case studies have been used for one hundred years because of their practical descriptions of actual situations.

Typically, information is presented about a practice’s patients, markets, competition, financial structure, service volumes, management, employees and other factors affecting success. The length of a case study may range from a few pages to 30, or more. And, our Case Models in Healthcare [A Practice Improvement Compendium] is suitable for medical practices, clinics, hospitals and other emerging healthcare entities.

We use three different methods to enhance your knowledge and launch your practice’s success: 

  • Prepared case-specific questions, with detailed answers, to illustrate underlying practice management concepts.
  • Problem-solving analysis, styled after Harvard Business School, to learn intuitive skills for resolving various practice issues.
  • A “no-answer” strategic planning approach to develop your ability to analyze a complex situation, generate a variety of possible strategies, and select the “best” from multiple self-generated solutions.

New Regulations Needed For Financial Planners?

So Says New Coalition

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko; MBA, CMP™


The Financial Planning Coalition [FPC] is pushing for a law that would require anyone calling themselves a financial planner to meet certain ethical and educational standards and to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC].

About the FPC

According to its’ website, the Financial Planning Coalition is a collaboration of Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board), the Financial Planning Association® (FPA), and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) to advise legislators and regulators on how to best protect consumers by ensuring financial planning services are delivered with fiduciary accountability and transparency. Americans have grown leery of those who work in financial services.

Currently, financial planning (the process of advising individuals and families across a range of personal finance topics in addition to investment advice) is unregulated as a profession, resulting in major gaps in current laws. So, is it really a “profession” many ask – void of any significant barrier to entry?

The Financial Planning Coalition intends to work with Congress to produce legislation that puts the interests of clients first and enables consumers to identify a trusted financial adviser.

SEC Wrong Oversight Agency?

According to this report in Financial Advisor magazine, an advertiser-driven trade journal:

the standards would be set by a public oversight board that would be funded by small registration fees paid by the financial planners, said Robert Glovsky, chair of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards during a conference call today. The CFP Board, as well as the Financial Planning Association and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors makes up the coalition.


However, brokers and insurance agents would not be forced to register as financial planners, but those who held themselves out as financial planners would have to meet the required minimum competency and ethics standards or stop using the financial planner title.


And so, as we have noted, written, preached and warned for more than a decade – anyone can call themselves a financial planner, or financial advisor; so beware medical colleagues.


NOTE: The fiduciary definitional standard conundrum was not even addressed in the article or by the committee, as far as I know. Moreover, note that SEC oversight was in place before, during and now after the Bernie Madoff scandal – so enough said about competency!


Your thoughts and comments on this ME-P are appreciated. What do you think FAs, and CFPs®? Should all become an RIA or ERISA styled fiduciary? Or, will this be another CFP® lite fiasco?
