My Fond Farewell to Tuskegee University

“Testing – Testing: 1, 2 3 and 4”

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

Here I am at the podium for a microphone sound check at the beautiful and iconic Tuskegee University Chapel. Guest speakers have ranged from U.S. Presidents, foreign heads of the state, and other persons of note such as Mary McLeod Bethune and Martin Luther King, Jr.

My Purpose?

Link: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/2019/04/12/my-visit-to-tuskegee-university-in-alabama/

Currently, the Chapel serves as the home of the famed Tuskegee University “Golden Voices” Concert Choir. Read more about the History of the Chapel, right here.

As I toured the historic TU wooden chapel with my host and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Channa Prakash, I could not help but notice it seemed like a larger version of the famed copper-wooden chapel in Rovaniemi Finland. I mentioned it to the Dean who surprisingly informed me that he too visited and spoke at that same site in Northern Finland, near Lapland, a few years ago. Rovaniemi is Lapland’s capital city, an energetic jewel of the North which lays claim to being the home of Father Christmas.

A “small world” co-incidence!

The College of Arts & Sciences Seminar

For the last two decades, I’ve had the opportunity to speak at small informal seminars with a few attendees – to larger more formal international presentations to an audience of thousands. But, success in my mind relates to the engagement, reception and feedback of the audience; not mere size. This was the case at the C&S and affiliated Tuskegee University National Center for Bio-Ethics in Research and Health Care.

***

thumbnail_IMG_1663.edit1

Using this metric, I learned that our niche seminar was indeed a success with dozens of esteemed faculty members, administrators and over a hundred university student – scientists collaborating and challenging me with state-of-the-art comments, insights and experiences that combined the theoretical and applied applications of our subject matter expertise …. followed by a spirited Q-A session. And, for which I am  grateful.

So, after a post reception gala social event; whole campus, Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver Museum, and biological laboratory tour, it was time for me to “Drop the Mike” on Tuskegee University.

I then waved good-bye and bid my hosts and new friends a fond farewell – until the next time. Thank you TU.

“MINNOVATION” for Physician Entrepreneurs

And … Innovators

 

 

 

 

 

 

[By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA]

We all seem to be fascinated by our endless capacity to invent new words, and Yes, I am a non-clinical healthcare linguist.

https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Health-Information-Technology-Security/dp/0826149952/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1254413315&sr=1-5

So, the word “minnovation” caught the eye of several colleagues some time ago while browsing old articles from Harvard Business weekly newsletter article for entrepreneurs.

INN

The “Next Big Thing”

According to one colleague, Philippa Kennealy MD MPH, her take on this article is that for most of us, the notion of coming up with “The Next Big Thing” is simply over whelming. So, rather than pursuing an enticing but unreachable entrepreneurial path, we give up, despairing of ever being able to break out of our ruts.

Example:

For example, we imagine that the only way to get away from a traditional insurance-based practice is to go all out for a full-blown high-fee concierge practice.

OR, we feel compelled to invent, develop and successfully market the next Medical Device of the Year.

OR, maybe the pressure of needing to reinvent healthcare delivery entirely, in this rapidly changing world, is keeping us awake at night. So we procrastinate, plagued by our perfectionism!

However, here is the excuse you can no longer avoid:

In reality, the vast majority of real-life entrepreneurs around the world aren’t innovators. They’re minnovators — mixing small parts of novelty and creativity with huge helpings of flexibility scrappiness and a generous portion of hard-driving execution.

Outing the Rut

So, if you yearn to break out of your traditional-but-tiresome medical practice, or merely exercise your emerging entrepreneurial physician muscle, here are a few ways to think about your next move:

  • what business or practice process can you tweak, or radically redesign?
  • what new spin can you put on the valuable information or education you provide?
  • what obstacles do your patients face regularly that they would love to surmount?
  • what product would work a whole lot better with a minor (or even major) adaptation?
  • what leadership and creativity could you provide to a team or group that is already executing an idea, and doing it poorly, or not well?

 Assessment

How can you become a scrappy, bootstrapping, quick-to-adapt physician “minnovator”?

On the Tooth Flossing Controversy?

 Explained -OR- Not?

[By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA]

An investigation by The Associated Press has many dentists grinding their teeth.

The report found there was no credible evidence to back up the claimed benefits of flossing, a habit trumpeted by oral hygienists and dentists everywhere.

***

ESSAY

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/a-big-problem-with-flossing/

Why this is personal for me?

OK I admit it. I dropped out of dental school before attending medical school. Mea Culpa!

Assessment

TRUST in healthcare is the issue? NOT flossing.

A Look-Back on Digital Game Changers for 2017; in 2019?

An Informal Follow-Up Poll

[By staff reporters]

Crystal balls. Tarot cards. Extra Sensory Perception. Looking at tea leaves. Using your sixth sense. Fortune cookies. Reading Nostradamus. Precognitive dreaming. Palmistry.

There are many ways, it is said, that  you can tell the future, and precisely none of them were used to research this list of the biggest digital marketing trends for 2017.

Instead, we have taken a year’s worth of reading about marketing every day, looked at the developments that seem to be gaining traction, and extrapolated some predictions for 2017.

Here they are!

Brandwatch

Sorry; if that’s not scientific enough for you. We actually Googled ‘methods for predicting the future’ in preparation for this article (see, we do proper research too) and one of the methods listed was ‘time travel’; so if it helps, imagine us in a Delorean going at 88mph.

Assessment

Your thoughts are appreciated. How did we, and Brandwatch, do?

Disruptive Innovation in Health Care?

Engaging Boards in Disruptive Innovation

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA]

As a former Wall Street advisor, I’ve never encountered a successful case of planned disruptive innovation in any industry sector. So, it is no surprise that I am under-whelmed by the recently announced ABJ potential. Innovation is flexible and organic; not static or planned.

Not sure of ABJ? Perform an internet search.

However, some now suggest that a hybrid organic-static model may be useful. Coined “strategy-simulation”, the authors of this white-paper suggest it might actually be helpful for assessing potential disruptors in healthcare.
