BOOK REVIEW

It is not uncommon for practicing physicians to have more than a dozen separate insurance policies to protect their medical practice and personal assets. Yet, most doctors understand very little about their policies.BOOK REVIR

Risk Management, Liability Insurance, and Asset Protection Strategies for Doctors and Advisors: Best Practices from Leading Consultants and Certified Medical Planners™explains to physicians and insurance professionals the background, theory, and practicalities of medical risk management, asset protection methods, and insurance planning.

The book presents information in a manner that is convenient and highly useful for busy medical practitioners. It discusses the medical records revolution and addresses concerns regarding cloud computing, data security, and technological threats.

The book covers modern health law and policy, including fraud and abuse, workplace-violence, Medicare compliance, HIPAA regulations, AR protection strategies with internal controls, P4P and value based care, insurance and reputation management, and how the ARA legislation is impacting physician practices. It also includes case models and examples that provide you with a real-world understanding of how to recognize and reduce personal and medical practice risks.

With time at a premium for all, and so much information packed into one well-organized resource, this book is a must-read for every physician and financial advisor that serves the health care sector. The book will help physicians make better decisions about the risks they face and will help financial advisors improve the value they provide to their clients who are doctors.

Physicians Beware … the Medical Management Consultants?

CMP logo

Are you a doctor desperate for practice enhancement solutions, but don’t know where to turn for help? Or, maybe you’ve already had a bad experience with a non-fiduciary business consultant, or management guru, more interested in his bottom line than your success?

Read this decade old Federal Government report to learn what can happen when your advisor is not an informed Certified Medical Planner© designated medical management practitioner.

FINANCIAL PLANNING: Strategies for Doctors and their Advisors

BY DR. DAVID E. MARCINKO MBA CMP®

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

CMP logo

REVIEWS:

Written by doctors and healthcare professionals, this textbook should be mandatory reading for all medical school students—highly recommended for both young and veteran physicians—and an eliminating factor for any financial advisor who has not read it. The book uses jargon like ‘innovative,’ ‘transformational,’ and ‘disruptive’—all rightly so! It is the type of definitive financial lifestyle planning book we often seek, but seldom find.
LeRoy Howard MA CMPTM,Candidate and Financial Advisor, Fayetteville, North Carolina

I taught diagnostic radiology for over a decade. The physician-focused niche information, balanced perspectives, and insider industry transparency in this book may help save your financial life.
Dr. William P. Scherer MS, Barry University, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

This book was crafted in response to the frustration felt by doctors who dealt with top financial, brokerage, and accounting firms. These non-fiduciary behemoths often prescribed costly wholesale solutions that were applicable to all, but customized for few, despite ever-changing needs. It is a must-read to learn why brokerage sales pitches or Internet resources will never replace the knowledge and deep advice of a physician-focused financial advisor, medical consultant, or collegial Certified Medical Planner™ financial professional.
—Parin Khotari MBA,Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University, New York

In today’s healthcare environment, in order for providers to survive, they need to understand their current and future market trends, finances, operations, and impact of federal and state regulations. As a healthcare consulting professional for over 30 years supporting both the private and public sector, I recommend that providers understand and utilize the wealth of knowledge that is being conveyed in these chapters. Without this guidance providers will have a hard time navigating the supporting system which may impact their future revenue stream. I strongly endorse the contents of this book.
—Carol S. Miller BSN MBA PMP,President, Miller Consulting Group, ACT IAC Executive Committee Vice-Chair at-Large, HIMSS NCA Board Member

This is an excellent book on financial planning for physicians and health professionals. It is all inclusive yet very easy to read with much valuable information. And, I have been expanding my business knowledge with all of Dr. Marcinko’s prior books. I highly recommend this one, too. It is a fine educational tool for all doctors.
—Dr. David B. Lumsden MD MS MA,Orthopedic Surgeon, Baltimore, Maryland

There is no other comprehensive book like it to help doctors, nurses, and other medical providers accumulate and preserve the wealth that their years of education and hard work have earned them.
—Dr. Jason Dyken MD MBA,Dyken Wealth Strategies, Gulf Shores, Alabama

I plan to give a copy of this book written
by doctors and for doctors’ to all my prospects, physician, and nurse clients. It may be the definitive text on this important topic.
—Alexander Naruska CPA,Orlando, Florida

Health professionals are small business owners who need to apply their self-discipline tactics in establishing and operating successful practices. Talented trainees are leaving the medical profession because they fail to balance the cost of attendance against a realistic business and financial plan. Principles like budgeting, saving, and living below one’s means, in order to make future investments for future growth, asset protection, and retirement possible are often lacking. This textbook guides the medical professional in his/her financial planning life journey from start to finish. It ranks a place in all medical school libraries and on each of our bookshelves.
—Dr. Thomas M. DeLauro DPM,Professor and Chairman – Division of Medical Sciences, New York College of Podiatric Medicine

Physicians are notoriously excellent at diagnosing and treating medical conditions. However, they are also notoriously deficient in managing the business aspects of their medical practices. Most will earn $20-30 million in their medical lifetime, but few know how to create wealth for themselves and their families. This book will help fill the void in physicians’ financial education. I have two recommendations: 1) every physician, young and old, should read this book; and 2) read it a second time!
—Dr. Neil Baum MD,Clinical Associate Professor of Urology, Tulane Medical School, New Orleans, Louisiana

I worked with a Certified Medical Planner™ on several occasions in the past, and will do so again in the future. This book codified the vast body of knowledge that helped in all facets of my financial life and professional medical practice.
Dr. James E. Williams DABPS, Foot and Ankle Surgeon, Conyers, Georgia

This is a constantly changing field for rules, regulations, taxes, insurance, compliance, and investments. This book assists readers, and their financial advisors, in keeping up with what’s going on in the healthcare field that all doctors need to know.
Patricia Raskob CFP® EA ATA, Raskob Kambourian Financial Advisors, Tucson, Arizona

I particularly enjoyed reading the specific examples in this book which pointed out the perils of risk … something with which I am too familiar and have learned (the hard way) to avoid like the Black Death. It is a pleasure to come across this kind of wisdom, in print, that other colleagues may learn before it’s too late— many, many years down the road.
Dr. Robert S. Park MD, Robert Park and Associates Insurance, Seattle, Washington

Although this book targets physicians, I was pleased to see that it also addressed the financial planning and employment benefit needs of nurses; physical, respiratory, and occupational therapists; CRNAs, hospitalists, and other members of the health care team….highly readable, practical, and understandable.
Nurse Cecelia T. Perez RN, Hospital Operating Room Manager, Ellicott City, Maryland

Personal financial success in the PP-ACA era will be more difficult to achieve than ever before. It requires the next generation of doctors to rethink frugality, delay gratification, and redefine the very definition of success and work–life balance. And, they will surely need the subject matter medical specificity and new-wave professional guidance offered in this book. This book is a ‘must-read’ for all health care professionals, and their financial advisors, who wish to take an active role in creating a new subset of informed and pioneering professionals known as Certified Medical Planners™.
—Dr. Mark D. Dollard FACFAS, Private Practice, Tyson Corner, Virginia

As healthcare professionals, it is our Hippocratic duty to avoid preventable harm by paying attention. On the other hand, some of us are guilty of being reckless with our own financial health—delaying serious consideration of investments, taxation, retirement income, estate planning, and inheritances until the worry keeps one awake at night. So, if you have avoided planning for the future for far too long, perhaps it is time to take that first step toward preparedness. This in-depth textbook is an excellent starting point—not only because of its readability, but because of his team’s expertise and thoroughness in addressing the intricacies of modern investments—and from the point of view of not only gifted financial experts, but as healthcare providers, as well … a rare combination.
Dr. Darrell K. Pruitt DDS, Private Practice Dentist, Fort Worth, Texas

This text should be on the bookshelf of all contemporary physicians. The book is physician-focused with unique topics applicable to all medical professionals. But, it also offers helpful insights into the new tax and estate laws, fiduciary accountability for advisors and insurance agents, with investing, asset protection and risk management, and retirement planning strategies with updates for the brave new world of global payments of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Starting out by encouraging readers to examine their personal ‘money blueprint’ beliefs and habits, the book is divided into four sections offering holistic life cycle financial information and economic education directed to new, mid-career, and mature physicians.

This structure permits one to dip into the book based on personal need to find relief, rather than to overwhelm. Given the complexity of modern domestic healthcare, and the daunting challenges faced by physicians who try to stay abreast of clinical medicine and the ever-evolving laws of personal finance, this textbook could not have come at a better time.
—Dr. Philippa Kennealy MD MPH, The Entrepreneurial MD, Los Angeles, California

Physicians have economic concerns unmatched by any other profession, arriving ten years late to the start of their earning years. This textbook goes to the core of how to level the playing field quickly, and efficaciously, by a new breed of dedicated Certified Medical Planners™. With physician-focused financial advice, each chapter is a building block to your financial fortress.
Thomas McKeon, MBA, Pharmaceutical Representative, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

An excellent resource … this textbook is written in a manner that provides physician practice owners with a comprehensive guide to financial planning and related topics for their professional practice in a way that is easily comprehended. The style in which it breaks down the intricacies of the current physician practice landscape makes it a ‘must-read’ for those physicians (and their advisors) practicing in the volatile era of healthcare reform.
—Robert James Cimasi, MHA ASA FRICS MCBA CVA CM&AA CMP™, CEO-Health Capital Consultants, LLC, St. Louis, Missouri

Rarely can one find a full compendium of information within a single source or text, but this book communicates the new financial realities we are forced to confront; it is full of opportunities for minimizing tax liability and maximizing income potential. We’re recommending it to all our medical practice management clients across the entire healthcare spectrum.
Alan Guinn, The Guinn Consultancy Group, Inc., Cookeville, Tennessee

Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™ and his team take a seemingly endless stream of disparate concepts and integrate them into a simple, straightforward, and understandable path to success. And, he codifies them all into a step-by-step algorithm to more efficient investing, risk management, taxation, and enhanced retirement planning for doctors and nurses. His text is a vital read—and must execute—book for all healthcare professionals and physician-focused financial advisors.
Dr. O. Kent Mercado, JD, Private Practitioner and Attorney, Naperville, Illinois

Kudos. The editors and contributing authors have compiled the most comprehensive reference book for the medical community that has ever been attempted. As you review the chapters of interest and hone in on the most important concerns you may have, realize that the best minds have been harvested for you to plan well… Live well.
Martha J. Schilling; AAMS® CRPC® ETSC CSA, Shilling Group Advisors, LLC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I recommend this book to any physician or medical professional that desires an honest no-sales approach to understanding the financial planning and investing world. It is worthwhile to any financial advisor interested in this space, as well.
David K. Luke, MIM MS-PFP CMP™, Net Worth Advisory Group, Sandy, Utah

Although not a substitute for a formal business education, this book will help physicians navigate effectively through the hurdles of day-to-day financial decisions with the help of an accountant, financial and legal advisor. I highly recommend it and commend Dr. Marcinko and the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc. on a job well done.
Ken Yeung MBA CMP™, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Hong Kong

I’ve seen many ghost-written handbooks, paperbacks, and vanity-published manuals on this topic throughout my career in mental healthcare. Most were poorly written, opinionated, and cheaply produced self-aggrandizing marketing drivel for those agents selling commission-based financial products and expensive advisory services. So, I was pleasantly surprised with this comprehensive peer-reviewed academic textbook, complete with citations, case examples, and real-life integrated strategies by and for medical professionals. Although a bit late for my career, I recommend it highly to all my younger colleagues … It’s credibility and specificity stand alone.
Dr. Clarice Montgomery PhD MA,Retired Clinical Psychologist

In an industry known for one-size-fits-all templates and massively customized books, products, advice, and services, the extreme healthcare specificity of this text is both refreshing and comprehensive.
Dr. James Joseph Bartley, Columbus, Georgia

My brother was my office administrator and accountant. We both feel this is the most comprehensive textbook available on financial planning for healthcare providers.
Dr. Anthony Robert Naruska DC,Winter Park, Florida

“Physicians who don’t understand modern risk management, insurance, business, and asset protection principles are sitting ducks waiting to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous insurance agents and financial advisors; and even their own prospective employers or partners.

FORM ADV is a Must Read for Selecting a Financial “Advisor”

Form ADV – The Essential Document

Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA - WEGO Health Awards Nominee

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP©

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

CMP logo

Under law, financial advisors and planners must provide you with a form ADV Part II or a brochure that covers the same information.  Even if a brochure is provided, ask for the ADV.  While it is acceptable, even desirable, for the brochure to be easier to read than the ADV, the ADV is what is filed with the appropriate state or SEC.  If the brochure reads more like a slick sales brochure or the information in the brochure glosses over the items on the ADV to a high degree, one should consider eliminating the advisor from consideration.

FIDUCIARY: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/2020/06/15/the-new-fiduciary-rule/

Registering with a state or SEC gives an advisor a fiduciary duty to the client.  This is a high standard under the law. 

There are several types of advisors who are exempt from registering and filing an ADV. 

First, there are registered representatives (brokers).  Brokers have a fiduciary responsibility to their firms regardless of whether they are statutory employees or independent contractors. Not the client.

Second are attorneys and accountants whose advice is “incidental” to their legal or accounting practices. But, why would one hire someone whose advice is “incidental” to his primary profession?  A top-notch advisor is a full-time professional and should be registered.  One should insist that their advisor be registered.

CFP: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/2016/11/18/why-we-cannot-assume-cfp-equals-fiduciary/

The ADV will describe the advisor’s background and employment history, including any prior disciplinary issues.  It will describe the ownership of the firm and outline how the firm and advisor are compensated.  Any referral arrangements will be described.  If an advisor has an interest in any of the investments to be recommended, it must be listed as well as the fee schedule.  There is also a description of the types of investments recommended and the types of research information that is used.

ASSESSMENT: A review of the ADV should result in an alignment of what the advisor said during the interview and what is filed with the regulators.  If there is a clear discrepancy, choose another advisor.  If it is unclear, discuss the issue with the advisor.

Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.

Financial Advisors are Website Posting Their Fees?

Nevertheless – Physicians and All Investors Must be AWARE & INFORMED!


By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA CMP®
CMP logo

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Many financial planning websites mention fees, as required, but still remain opaque to potential clients because the advisor wants to control the discussion and understandably wishes to avoid the website shopper phenomenon.

But, physicians and all investors can still control the discussion, and still provide transparency, because posting up front pricing information doesn’t mean presenting information in a vacuum!

For example, a 1%/year fee doesn’t have to just be 1%; it can be 1%, compared to an industry average cost of X%, where the average cost of an actively managed mutual fund is Y%.

***

See the source image

***

Similarly, it doesn’t have to be a retainer fee of $1,000/year; it can be a retainer fee for less than the cost of a monthly cable bill! And, a financial plan doesn’t cost $1,500; it costs 8-12 hours of staff time to craft extensive, customized solutions; but saves the doctor-client so much more!

And, if services have a range of potential prices, they might be provided with some insight into the factors that impact the price. Modern young and internet savvy doctors expect this sort of information.

A.I. Examiners and the CERTIFIED MEDICAL PLANNER® Professional Designation Program

Artificial Intelligence and “Robo-Examiners” Let Adult-Learners and Students Take Control of their Career Education and On-Line Matriculation

[Academic Dean and CEO: Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc]

Enter the CMPs

[Course Curriculum]

The concept of a self-taught and student motivated, but automated outcomes driven classroom may seem like a nightmare scenario for those who are not comfortable with computers. Now everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, because the Institute of Medical Business Advisors just launched an “automated” final examination review protocol that requires no programming skill whatsoever.

cmp

In fact, everything is designed to be very simple and easy to use. Once a student’s examination “blue-book” is received, computerized “robotic reviewers” correct student assignments and quarterly test answers. This automated examination model lets the robots correct tests and exams, while the students concentrate on guided self-learning.

Get a robo advisor on board to help with your investment ...

According to Eugene Schmuckler PhD MBA MEd, Academic Provost of the CERTIFIED MEDICAL PLANNER® professional designation and certification program,

“This option allows the modern adult-learner save both time and money as s/he progresses toward the ultimate goal of board certification as a CMP® mark holder.”

The trend is growing and iMBA, Inc., is leading the way.

Are You Providing Pro Bono Financial Advice? [Voting Poll and Survey]

Is Less or More Planned in 2020?

[By Staff Reporters]

Join Our Mailing List 

It is well known that the flash crash of 2008-09, and the continuing hangover from the recent recession, is a drag on the income of many financial advisors; especially those who derive their salary from some percentage of assets under management. But, the markets have bounced back in the last decade to near all time highs, in 2019!

Business Models and Definitional Haze  

Regardless of definitional haze, it seems that commissioned salesman, stock-brokers, financial planners, insurance agents and financial advisors of all stripes – and business models –  have been economically hurt as the nation’s unemployment rate hovers at just under ten percent.

No One Immune

Broker-Dealers [BDs] and Registered Investment Advisors [RIA] are not immune; as this voting poll was first launched in 2011.

Are You Providing “Pro Bono” Financial Advice in 2019?

Conclusion

And so, as a financial professional, do you plan on providing less or more pro bono work in 2011?

Risk Management Liability Insurance and Asset Protection Strategies for Doctors and Advisors

It is not uncommon for practicing physicians to have more than a dozen separate insurance policies to protect their medical practice and personal assets. Yet, most doctors understand very little about their policies.

The book RISK MANAGEMENT, LIABILITY INSURANCE AND ASSET PROTECTION STRATEGIES for DOCTORS and ADVISORS [Best Practices from Leading Consultants and Certified Medical Planners™] explains to physicians and insurance professionals the background, theory, and practicalities of medical risk management, asset protection methods, and insurance planning.

The text presents information in a manner that is convenient and highly useful for busy medical practitioners. It discusses the medical records revolution and addresses concerns regarding cloud computing, data security, and technological threats.

The book covers modern health law and policy, including fraud and abuse, workplace-violence, Medicare compliance, HIPAA regulations, AR protection strategies with internal controls, P4P and value based care, insurance and reputation management, and how the ARA legislation is impacting physician practices.

It also includes case models and examples that provide you with a real-world understanding of how to recognize and reduce personal and medical practice risks.

With time at a premium for all, and so much information packed into one well-organized resource, this book is a must-read for every physician and financial advisor that serves the health care sector. The book will help physicians make better decisions about the risks they face and will help financial advisors improve the value they provide to their clients who are doctors.

Seeking Securities Analysts, Stock-Brokers and Investment Bankers for New “Financial Planning Textbook for Doctors”

  Join Our Mailing List 

Planning our newest major textbook

By Ann Miller RN MHA [ph-770-448-0769]

[Executive-Director]

Dear Stock Brokers, IBs and Securities Analysts,

Greetings from the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Historical Review

As you may know, we released: Financial Planning Handbook for Physicians and Advisors, some time ago. It has enjoyed much success and acclaim in the medical and financial service sectors.

Recently, we have been asked to produce the next edition of this book for our target market of physicians, nurses, medical professionals, healthcare administrators – and those in the financial services sector who target this large and fertile, but rapidly changing niche market.

Why Now?

Urgency for the update has been prompted by ARRA, HI-TECH, the flash-crash of 2008 and the day-crash of 2011; by social, macro-economic and demographic changes; by political fiat and especially the PP-ACA.

Our medical colleagues are frustrated, afraid and fearful for their financial futures. They WANT informed advice.

Thus, true integrated financial planning information that targets this market – very expertly and specifically – is greatly needed.

The Invitation 

And so, we ask if you are interested in contributing an updated vision of an existing book chapter.

  • INVESTMENT BANKING-SECURITIES-MARKETS-MARGIN
  • HOSPITAL EMPLOYEE BENEFITS AND STOCK OPTIONS
  • INVESTMENT POLICY STATEMENT CONSTRUCTION

Not to worry – The original MS-WORD® chapter files are archived and available for use. We will forward it to you, upon assignment acceptance.

And, we are again fortunate that our Editor-in-Chief will be Dr. David Edward Marcinko FACFAS MBA CMP™ along with Professor Hope Rachel Hetico RN MHA CMP™ serving as Managing Editor.

They opined at a recent interview for the ME-P.

David and Hope” … We have entered into an emerging era in the financial planning ecosystem. It is a new era where one size does not fit all; and off-the-shelf financial products and mass sales customization is no long adequate for physicians and medical professionals; or their related generic financial planners or wire-house advisors.

It is a period of rapid change, shifting reimbursement paradigms and salary reductions that focus the healthcare industrial complex on pay-for-performance [P4], compensation for value and quality care; rather than procedures performed and quantity of care.

All must learn to do more with less professionally; and plan their personal financial lives more efficiently than ever before. Mistakes will be more difficult to overcome and the wiggle room that high income earning physicians, nurses and medical professionals used to enjoy is being narrowed by demographic, economic, social, technological and political fiat.

This emerging financial planning analog follows the health industry’s fiscal metamorphosis …”

Style Instructions 

The look and feel, format and style, and font and size of the book will remain the same. We use endnotes, not foot notes; and include mini-case reports or illustrative case models. It will be a major text; not a handbook.

Timeline for submission is about 3 months. Additional time is available, if needed, for a comprehensive update. But, we are trying to avoid running too far along into 2014 in order to avoid income tax season and the related time constraints on all concerned.

Writers Search

A Pleasure – Not Burden 

This should be a pleasurable project for you; and not anxiety provoking.

So, if you are a medically focused and experienced financial advisor with an: MBA, CFP®, PhD, MD, DDS, MSA/MS, CPA, RN, CMP®, DO, JD and/or CFA degree or designation, etc; please let me know if you are interested in updating and revising our chapters. OR, authoring a new to the world chapter.

Your Payback 

In return for your conscientious industry, you will receive a complimentary edition of the entire textbook; be listed on this ME-P as thought-leader with related book advertising content attributed to you; and given e-exposure to our almost 600,000 readers and ME-P subscribers …. Such the deal!

And, you will be added to our roster of experts for potential referrals, interviews, pod-casts and other marketing efforts

Assessment

Regardless of your decision, we remain apostles promoting your core vision of physician focused financial planning whenever possible.

Or, you may suggest another possible author- writer-expert contributor; if you wish.

Just let me know; ASAP [MarcinkoAdvisors@msn.com]

Thank you.

Great Depression versus Great Recession 2020? [A Poll]

Join Our Mailing List

Yesterday versus Today?

The Great Depression is often compared to the 2001-08  Great Recession. There are some interesting facts when comparing the Great Depression to the Great Recession. It may even be considered scary when laid out directly in front of you.

The cause of the Great Depression was because people were borrowing too much money, unlike the Great Recession where the banks were lending too much money irresponsibly. Don’t forget that what was once a recession turned into the Great Depression because of unemployment rates reaching 25%, bank failures covering half of all banks, and more.

Both Roosevelt and Obama have used “wall street bankers” as a scapegoat.

On Disruptive Innovation or Deus ex Machina

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP

[Editor-in-Chief]

Dr David E Marcinko MBAAccording to Wikipedia, a disruptive technology is an innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually goes on to disrupt an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology.

The term is often used today used in business, healthcare and technology literature to describe innovations that improve a product or service in ways that the market does not expect, typically first by designing for a different set of consumers in a new market and later by lowering prices in the existing market.

For Doctors

You can feel it happening in the marketplace around us. Retail clinics, medical tourism, technology-enabled self care — disruptive innovations in the U.S. health care system challenge the status quo. These and other new phenomena zero in on unmet needs, leverage new technologies and business models, and deliver enhanced value throughout the health care supply chain.

So, along with consumerism, healthcare reform and technology, disruptive innovation is one of the three major themes we follow at the ME-P: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org  and www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com

For Financial Advisors

According to Mike Kitces CFP, MTax, MSFS many of the things that financial advisors do can be implemented far more efficiently with technology, and overall it’s important to acknowledge that there are some things that humans do better but some things that really are done better by computers.

Which means in the end, the real winner may not be the robo-advisors, nor the human advisors, but the technology-augmented humans – the cyborg advisors – who blend human and technology together into an optimal financial advice solution for consumers.

And so, do these big changes create big value opportunities; or not? Of course they may … but only if you know where to look!

New Text Book Testimonials Requested
By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA
[Editor-in-Chief]
DEM 2013
Greetings all ME-P Readers from Atlanta, Georgia
###
After reading and being inspired by Dr. Atul Gawandi’s December 10, 2007 New  Yorker article, “The Checklist”, as well as the Checklist Manifesto, I am writing to ask that you consider this request to write a 3-5 sentence testimonial review to our upcoming new textbook:  Financial  Management Strategies for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations: Tools,  Techniques, Checklists and Case Studies

It is the follow up to: Hospitals & Health Care Organizations: Management Strategies, Operational Techniques,  Tools, Templates, and Case Studies

Book Focus

Please realize that the focus of the work is non-clinical in nature, and is replete with managerial case models and administrative checklists following each chapter.

Just as Atul believed the time is right for medical checklists, we believe in a similar philosophy for hospitals, health enitites, and healthcare administration. It is right for any physician or medical practitioner, regardless of degree or specialty designation.

New Book

Ideal Reviewers

Ideal book reviewers are doctors, financial advisors, economists, accountants, nurses, insurance agents, politicians and healthcare CXOs. So, please see the TOC links as we ask you to keep this request confidential.  Regardless of your decision, we remain an apostle of your core vision whenever possible.

Fraternally,

Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

Educational Inititatives

That’s why the R&D efforts of our governing board of physician-directors, accountants, financial advisors, academics and health economists identified the need for integrated personal financial planning and medical practice management as an effective first step in the survival and wealth building life-cycle for physicians, nurses, healthcare executives, administrators and all medical professionals.

Now – more than ever – desperate doctors of all ages are turning to knowledge able financial advisors and medical management consultants for help. Symbiotically too, generalist advisors are finding that the mutual need for extreme niche synergy is obvious.

But, there was no established curriculum or educational program; no corpus of knowledge or codifying terms-of-art; no academic gravitas or fiduciary accountability; and certainly no identifying professional designation that demonstrated integrated subject matter expertise for the increasingly unique healthcare focused financial advisory niche … Until Now!

Enter the Certified Medical Planner™ charter professional designation www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Doctors and Financial Advisors “Working 9 to 5”

What an “Old” Way to Make a Living

[Challenging the Current Business Process Model and Scheduling Paradigm]

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko FACFAS MBA CMP™

[Editor-in-Chief]

First off – my apologies to Dolly Parton for bastardizing the title of her song

My dad worked for General Motors; the 11-PM to 7-AM shift to be precise. The company ran 3 shifts [8hr. X 3da. = 24 hrs / day / 7 days / week]. He was always home during the day for his children. In fact, it seemed as though he never slept. My mom worked the 9-AM to 5-PM  shift / 5 days / week as a banker. What a great arrangement; loving parental child care 24/7/365.

Then, after my own medical school, internship, residency training, fellowship, clinical practice and business school, I often wondered why corporate America and her white collar workers used the 9-5 work day paradigm and not the traditional blue collar 3 shift [24/7/375] manufacturing model – like  GM?

Working

With a 24/7/365 work day schedule [3 shifts/day], fixed office costs would remain the same, while variable costs would increase slightly but be compensated for by increased revenues, less HR stress, fewer utilities and reduced private and public infra-structure maintenance, etc [old styled B-school pedagogy]. This would increase operating capacity and output [patient/client output, CPT® codes, hourly fees, AUMs, etc]. You know – real top line revenue and bottom line profits. And, that’s a good thing for business and commerce.

But, is this 3 shift model applicable to the healthcare industrial complex and the financial services industry? If not – why not? And, I mean real work – examining and treating patients and interviewing clients – not automatic websites or interactive blogs, etc. Doctors, consultants and FAs actually interacting with real folks; not avatars!

An Old but Novel Idea?

As a medical business process consultant, my simple idea is more than two decades old. Yet, it remains largely untested and still considered novel … Perhaps until now! Offering extended hours is one way that physicians – can position themselves for the changes coming in the new healthcare era. How else will we accomodate 34 million new Medicaid insured patients.

In fact, so should financial advisors and medical management consultants. Shoot, why can’t most professionals use this model. Why be constrained to person, place and time [3-Dimensions]?

The Decision

This decision, however, should not be taken lightly and should be evaluated both from a provider, patient, civics, cultural and business standpoint. So, please read this essay for an elegant description of this model.

Then, our ME-P text books can be used to go granular into the nitty-gritty details; with real-life tools, templates, case models and checklists, etc.

Do Clients Trust Financial Advisors More than Doctors or CPAs?

Join Our Mailing List

I Think … Not in My Universe

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

[Editor-in-Chief]

www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Survey after survey has shown that the public does not trust the financial services industry; it was – in fact, the least trusted industry in a recent Rick Edelman survey.

John Hancock?

But, perhaps they were looking at the wrong industries, or maybe investors just don’t trust your firm. A new survey by John Hancock shows that investors with assets of $200,000 or more, trust their financial advisor [FA] more than their primary doctor, accountant, contractor/handyman, boss and real estate agent. It was penned by one young staff writer named Diana Britton.

Link: http://wealthmanagement.com/blog/clients-trust-you-more-doctors-cpas?NL=WM-04&Issue=WM-04_20120611_WM-04_597&YM_RID=marcinkoadvisors%40msn.com&YM_MID=1318408

My View Point is Pretty Unique

Now, I am a doctor and board certified surgeon who held Series #7, #63 and #65 securities licenses, and was a Certified Financial Planner® for more than a decade. I was registered with a BD, SEC and NASD/FINRA, and held life, health and PC insurance licenses. This is the so-called “dual registration” to earn commissions and fees.

And, I’ve got a current partner who is a doctor-CPA who has a Master’s Degree in Accounting.  So, I know from whence I speak.

An Insurance Company!

Now, I resigned all of the above financial services monikers because of their lack of education and fiduciary accountability. These are sales licenses, certifications to hold a certification, and related gimmicks, all. Insurance agents have a duty to the company, not the client. Always ask them to put your best interests ahead of their own – in writing before hire – and watch them run.

Assessment

I suspect this study from an insurance company is less than accurate. How do I know? My gut heuristics tell me. Agency law tells me. No surveys needed or damn statistics for me. How about you? OR, are the marketing and PR gurus winning the public opinion battle with their insurance company advertising chicanery? ie., Hancock’s the future is yours!

If really so, here is my razzy for them.

 
Note: It is for the above reasons, and more, that we started the www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org online education program for financial advisors and management consultants that truly want to be trusted.

On Finding a Good Physician and Financial Planner in 2012

[By staff reporters]

What happens when patients and clients are able to compare the performance of primary care physicians and financial advisors? Well, for the first time ever, we’re about to find out.

RATING DOCTORS:

Consumer Reports for Doctors

Consumer Reports, best known for rating the nuts and bolts of cars, household appliances and other electronics, is getting into the business of rating primary care doctors.

The magazine is getting ready to mail out ratings for nearly 500 adult, family and pediatric physician practices in Massachusetts, the first step in a multistate project to evaluate doctors the way it has rated consumer products for decades.

RATING FINANCIAL ADVISORS:

AdviceIQ

www.AdviceIQ.com is an online service that educates all consumers about the need to hire a trusted, local financial advisor, while giving all pre-vetted advisors exposure to local investors. Also, their FAs write insightful articles that inform the public about investing and wealth management, and they syndicate them to top-branded media sites around the country.

BrightScope® for Wealth Managers and Plan Sponsors

BrightScope, Inc. is a financial information company that brings transparency to opaque markets. Delivered through web-based software, BrightScope data drives better decision-making for individual investors, corporate plan sponsors, asset managers, broker-dealers, and financial advisors.

BrightScope primarily operates in two major segments: Retirement Plans and Wealth Management: http://www.brightscope.com/

Assessment

Ultimately, we hope and believe that the reliability of the data, the credibility of the organizations responsible for the research and reporting, and a process based on collaboration and the desire for continuous improvement, will combine to gain the confidence of clients and patients alike and help advance the cause of patient-centered health care and fiduciary focused financial planning.

TESTIMONIAL

In his book Financial Planning Handbook for Physicians and Advisors, Dr. David E. Marcinko, MBA CMP® CFP® provides us with a simple and yet very complete view on the basics of financial planning that every physician should know in order to maximize our chances for success in the financial aspect of our medical careers and personal lives.

The book is well structured, organized and easy to read. Divided in ten chapters, it covers important aspects of personal financial planning such as insurance, home mortgages, retirement plans, auto buying, taxes and more. In an era where doctors must have a solid understanding of the basics of financial management, this book is a must-have on every physician’s private book collection.

Although not a substitute for a formal business education, this book will help physicians navigate effectively through the hurdles of day-to-day financial decisions with the help of an accountant, financial and legal advisors.  This book would make an excellent reference for teaching medical students and residents the basics of monetary management.

I highly recommend this book and commend Dr. Marcinko and the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc. on a job well done.

Investing Hero or Zero … On Market Timing or NOT!

By Staff Reporters

Here at the ME-P, we believe we have some of the most intelligent and savvy readers in the blog-o-sphere. And – why not?

Most are physicians, nurses and medical specialist of all stripes. Others are CPAs, financial advisors and wealth managers. And, some are medical management and HIT consultants with PhDs and MBAs, etc. More than a few more even have dual and triple degrees and professional designations, like www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.com

The Question

Accordingly, our friends over at The Finance Buff recently asked:

Q: Do you remember those days last summer when the Dow went down 400 points one day and then it went up 400 points the next day, before it went down another 400 points the following day?

Going Granular

Well – if you do – what did you, or your clients do about it? Did you invest more, stay put, bail out or something else? Go granular on us and your fellow ME-P readers, subscribers and lurkers.

Assessment

Please tell us who you are, what you did during the “flash-crash” a few years ago, or last summer’s mini-meltdown, and how it turned out in hindsight?

TESTIMONIAL

 Physicians are all too familiar with the risks and liabilities inherent in the clinical practice of medicine. An exploding scientific literature, increasing sub-specialization, and a public awareness of “quality healthcare” have challenged conventional practice. Some of our colleagues have a very personal understanding of issues like illness, divorce and disability that accompany these professional challenges. Physician executives perceive even greater threats arising not only from the innumerable personal and professional issues of a singular practice, but also the complexities associated with operating a healthcare organization including personnel agreements, conflict mediation, and asset protection.

Understanding the risks associated with these very divergent areas and providing useful information to protect the physician from liability are the primary aims of Dr. David Marcinko’s latest book, Insurance and Risk Management Strategies For Physicians and Advisors.

This book is an excellent primer for physicians of all levels and interests providing important personal and professional advice. It is “must reading” for all medical students who need a fundamental understanding of the current healthcare environment and is equally important to the established physician executive looking for a reference on topics like capitation or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

The book begins with a discussion of personal issues for the physician including life, homeowner’s and disability insurance as well as the financial and professional risks associated with divorce. Next the physician’s practice is considered with clear and concise coverage of issues ranging from documentation to business operations. Of importance, the book extends beyond the first layer of practice management to address important topics like sexual harassment and workplace violence.

Dr. David E. Marcinko and his twenty authors from http://www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com are all knowledgeable contributors. They have prepared a product that is excellent in its content and organization. The book is organized in a way that is highly useful for a busy practitioner. Topics are introduced without the overuse of jargon and more than adequately explained. There are numerous subheadings and bulleted lists to assist the reader with moving through the text or highlighting a particular topic. Robust examples throughout the book provide the reader with an applied knowledge that complements the didactic sections. The book is well referenced for more in-depth reading on a particular topic with materials from both the written and electronic media.

Of its few limitations, Insurance and Risk Management Strategies For Physicians and Advisors ambitiously attempts to briefly cover a large number of topics. For the most part, this is accomplished well. However, some of the topics were unexpected by the book’s title. While the physician executive will still require a financial or insurance advisor after reading this book, this well written text assists in providing the necessary background on what type of assistance is needed. As a result, physician executives will be in a better position to address insurance, risk management, and financial decisions for themselves, their families, their practices or the organizations they lead.

Why Your Medical Office or Financial Advisory Practice Must “Go-Social”

Join Our Mailing List 

Go Social -OR- Go Home?

By Staff Reporters

Likes, followers, circles, networks and shares are all jargon used around the internet. Social media is the new language and being fluent is very necessary in business today. In fact, we have written about it before on this ME-P. Why?

Social media allows you to connect with your patients, clients, customers and viewers on a level that becomes personalized and more intimate. This in turn brings loyal patients and clients who become a part of your business model; both professionally and socially.

However, social media integration is a gradual process with huge long term rewards, potential benefits and pitfalls. And, the jury is still out on its’ relevance to medical practices, financial advisors and medical management consultants? Or, is it?

So, here is an infographic breaking down the important facts and tips of social media.
