On Disruptive Healthcare Innovators and Financial Industry Change Agents

Calling all Young Doctors, FAs and Medical Executives with “FLY”

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko; MBA, CMP™


In my real-job travels as a medical management consultant, speaker and physician focused financial advisor, my clients and their healthcare practices / financial services business models run the gamut from the sublime to the ridiculous; from pegboards to eMRs and clinical groupware; from cash/bond holders to hedge fund devotees and IPO junkies.

And, from broker-sharks and commissioned sales agents, to fee-only financial advisors and fiduciary RIAs. Fortunately, we see much more of what’s in-between than the latter [www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com and www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Business Analogy

Nevertheless, I am always struck by the fact that change and disruptive innovation [both positive and negative] seems to be within the realm of the young, rather than the more “mature” [sic].

Why? Younger folks just don’t seem to have the mental baggage and fear of failure that older counterparts seem to harbor. THINK: Janis Joplin: Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose.

For example, Microsoft, Dell, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Apple and Twitter, etc. No one told these young founders that “it can’t be done” – or – “we don’t do it that way around here.” Or, they did not listen to such talk. Unfortunately, this hubris [confidence or elan] is often just lost with age in the guise of political correctness.

Nevertheless, although started by folks in their youth, the professional management that most successful companies in the public domain ultimately require is from “older” folks.

Healthcare / Financial Services Analogy

Still, it is not surprising to learn that even some hospitals that house the most accomplished authorities in the fields of IT and quality care do not always follow their own advice when it comes to making improvements in the delivery of healthcare, or in their operational and delivery activities. THINK: Robert Wachter, MD.

And, it is not unusual for industries like the financial services and banking sectors, facing deep structural change, to be slow moving. THINK: Harry Markopolis.

Also, consider the auto industry – public education and labor unions – before the fall. Why – because the leaders of such sectors are typically promoted within, and because of past success, and not any ability to change the current environment?

IOW: They were hired for their ability to maintain the status quo, rather than for their ability to make constructive changes.

Do we call this need for young blood, the “theory of business evolution?” The dinosaur is dead … long live the dinosaur!

Moral: We can’t help getting physiologically old – but we can help getting cognitively old to the extent possible. Be disruptive – champion change – don’t settle and raise a little hell in the dual industries we love and serve!

A New Survey on Dental Insurance

Come on out Kim E. Volk – CEO of Delta Dental

By Darrell K. Pruitt; DDS

Today, Julie Frey posted “Dentist & Dental Insurance: No Love Lost” on Jim Du Molin’s Blog.


Frey hosts dentists’ frank criticism of dental insurance – their harsh sentiments backed up with fresh results from yet another of the blog’s timely studies that nobody else can compete with. Frey writes “Half of dentists have mostly or completely stopped accepting dental insurances, according to this survey.”  One dentist captured the mood of the dentists with the statement, “Do the math … somebody is making hell of a lot of money on these plans, and it is not the dentist!” I smelled blood and posted the following comment.

Bloody Sunday

Anonymous members of the obscure National Association of Dental Plans (NADP) are losing the fat, collective thumb they once oppressed us with – even using our own ADA News to present their non-negotiable terms. Apart from common sense appearing in the marketplace about the same time as transparency, multiple other interconnected factors are causing dental insurance companies to lose business. The bad economy, corporate greed and pride are a few of their more serious handicaps that come to mind. Wasteful, deceptive insurance practices have aggravated my patients and me for decades before modern networked recourse became available on the Internet through progressive Websites like Jim Du Molin’s Blog. I’ll go out on a limb and say it is not unprofessional for us to enjoy protecting those we serve by showing no mercy to unfair stakeholders like the NADP.

There. I said it. In fact, as US citizens and taxpayers I think blowing the whistle on unneeded expense and danger in the nation’s healthcare delivery is the least we can do for meaningful healthcare reform. I say do your part. Make an insurance CEO like Delta Dental Plans Association’s Kim E. Volk feel discomfort on the Internet. Do you know that Kim E. Volk is the only person who has ever refused to accept me as a friend on Facebook?



We really don’t want to allow Delta Dental, UnitedHealthcare, United Concordia and others to dictate fees for non-covered dental services, do we? I also don’t think they deserve continued protection from FTC anti-trust litigation. I say we punish the NADP hard every chance we get until the repeal of the McCarran-Ferguson Act and finally make such in-your-face collusion illegal for crying out loud.
