In North Carolina, the nearly 100 Mecklenburg Medical Group physicians who have decided to break away from local health system Atrium Health name their new multispecialty physician practice Tryon Medical Partners. After a somewhat contentious legal process, Atrium decided to release the physicians from their non-compete agreements so they can begin practicing independently September 1. TMP plans to start seeing patients at between five and 10 locations just after Labor Day. Its placeholder-like website gives no clues as to what health IT systems the group will use once it opens for business.


Webinars

June 5 (Tuesday) 1:00 ET. “Increase Referrals and Patient Satisfaction with a Smarter ‘Find a Doctor’ Web Search.” Sponsors: Phynd Technologies, Healthwise. Presenters: Joseph H. Schneider, MD, MBA, FAAP, retired SVP/CHIO, Indiana University Health; Keith Belton, VP of marketing, Phynd. A recent survey found that 84 percent of patients check a hospital’s website before booking an appointment. However, ‘Find a Doctor’ search functions often frustrate them because their matching functionality is primitive and the provider’s information is incomplete or outdated. Referring physicians need similarly robust tools to find the right specialist and to send the patient to the right location. Attendees of this webinar will learn how taxonomy-driven Provider Information Management improves patient and referrer satisfaction by intelligently incorporating the provider’s location, insurance coverage, specialty and subspecialty, and services offered that can be searched via patient-friendly terms.

June 12 (Tuesday) 2:00 ET. “Blockchain in Healthcare: Why It Matters.” Sponsor: Quest Diagnostics. Presenter: Lidia Fonseca, CIO, Quest Diagnostics. Blockchain technology is gaining traction in many industries, including healthcare. It’s not only a hot topic, but is also showing promise with real-world applications. This webinar will share how blockchain may play a key role in the future of healthcare IT by helping to solve some of the industry’s challenges, distinguishing the hype from reality by discussing how it works, how it can impact healthcare providers, and its future application in healthcare IT.

June 21 (Thursday) noon ET. “Operationalizing Data Science Models in Healthcare.” Sponsor: CitiusTech. Presenters: Yugal Sharma, PhD, VP of data science, CitiusTech; Vinil Menon, VP of enterprise applications proficiency, CitiusTech. As healthcare organizations are becoming more adept at developing models, building the skills required to manage, validate, and deploy these models efficiently remains a challenging task. We define operationalization as the process of managing, validating, and deploying models within an organization. Several industry best practices, along with frameworks and technology solutions, exist to address this challenge. An understanding of this space and current state of the art is crucial to ensure efficient use and consumption of these models for relevant stakeholders in the organization. This webinar will give an introduction and overview of these key areas, along with examples and case studies to demonstrate the value of various best practices in the healthcare industry.

Membership-based primary care company Qliance Medical Management files for bankruptcy after abruptly shutting its doors last year. The Seattle-based provider launched in 2007 with $33 million in support from investors like Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and venture capitalist Nick Hanauer, both of whom were bought out by CEO Erika Bliss, MD and President Cheryl Kilodavis in 2016. Bliss attributed the closing to lender fraud, though former employees have hinted that money woes were ongoing.

Bliss has gone on to open nearby Equinox Primary Care, a similarly-modeled company that is listed among Qliance’s 100-plus creditors.

In my efforts to totally unplug over the long Memorial Day weekend, I missed the initial onslaught of GDPR-related email communications from the thankfully small amount of vendors I receive marketing info from. I suppose I didn’t realize just how far-reaching the EU-focused data protection policy would reach. I laughed out loud when I read the email above from one of my favorite comedians – more because two of my  interests (cybersecurity and comedy) had collided in a totally random way than because of the content. I hope he appreciates that his missive got a laugh, unintended though it may have been.

Presenters: Antonia Chappell, director of consumer solutions, Healthwise; Josh Schlaich, senior product manager, Healthwise. Nearly three-quarters of US adults use a digital channel to manage their health and the internet to track down health information. It’s clear that consumers have come to expect online interactions as an integral part of their overall patient experience.

Local healthcare leaders consider the breakaway of 100 Mecklenburg Medical Group physicians from Atrium Health (NC) as the start of a small but growing trend of physician groups becoming frustrated with hospital employment and opting instead for independence. The former Atrium-affiliated physicians claimed they had no wiggle room to refer patients outside of the health system’s network, and ultimately opted for a somewhat high-profile lawsuit against Atrium after contract changes reduced their compensation and RN staffing levels, and added a 30-mile radius non-compete clause.

Research from Black Book also confirms the trend: Providers working for independent or physician-led organizations increased from 67 to 72 percent between 2016 and 2017, reversing a six-year decline. The research company’s latest analysis has also found that 68 percent of physician groups of 10 or more will seek outside financial and clinical help to transition to value-based care business models by Q2 of next year.

I almost laughed out loud when my dental hygienist handed me this slip of paper at the end of an appointment last week and asked me to leave a (presumably) positive review.

Jeremy Topin, MD recounts the steady drip, drip, drip of “subtle and insidious” burnout that led him to cut back hours and ultimately work part time.

“As I adjust to my new normal, I am also adjusting my sense of self. Before, I was a partner in a successful though crazy busy practice, providing for myself and my employees. I was a teammate with seven other doctors, taking on challenges as they came. But now that I am no longer that partner, that provider, that teammate, did I fail?

I don’t think so, but that’s something I am still processing.

And as I do, I am enjoying being a parent taking my kids on college visits. I am applying to study health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where I hope to start next January. I am a high school water polo coach, working with an amazing bunch of teenagers, and a goalie for my master’s team. I am a triathlete training for another Ironman this fall. I am a husband celebrating and tackling these midlife challenges, together with my wife.

And I am a part-time doctor who still loves the challenge and privilege of taking care of patients when they are at their sickest and most vulnerable.

I am not broken. I am just getting started.”

Kudos to Slate for uncovering the origin story of the US Digital Service’s new Twitter avatar, introduced on my favorite sci fi holiday, May the 4th. Perhaps even more interesting to me is that USDS designer Mollie Ruskin, whom the crab is named after, came to the agency after a digital design stint at Marvel. As Mr. H noted when the group was created in 2016 under President Obama, its ties to healthcare were already evident: “It … developed a new VA benefits appeals system, created a consolidated website at Vets.gov, and figured out a way for the VA and DoD to exchange scanned documents. Everybody loves the groups except fat cat IT contractors and the internal federal government bureaucracies that created the messes the kids are sent to clean up.”

A local news station in Minnesota digs through DEA and PDMP data to discover that more than 5,000 healthcare professionals have broken a July 2017 law that requires narcotics prescribers create an account with the State of Minnesota’s PDMP. While the law doesn’t require that prescribers use the system, it is supposedly a condition of licensure by the state’s medical board – one that so far is being ignored. When confronted with the data, Minnesota Board of Medical Practice Executive Director Ruth Martinez explained that the board doesn’t have the resources to follow up on prescriber compliance. “We are a complaint-driven process,” she said. “And frankly, if we were going on a fishing expedition all of the time then we wouldn’t be able to complete any of the rest of the important work that we have to do as a board.”

Governor Mark Dayton was appalled by the board’s response. He claims he wasn’t aware of the lack of penalties, and believes it belies a bigger problem of “tepid initiatives” formed to combat the state’s opioid epidemic.

An online reputation management survey of medical and dental providers finds that while 80 percent believe monitoring and maintaining such a reputation is important, slightly less than that (71 percent) receive reviews from 5 percent or fewer of their patients, and just 18 percent have processes in place to address negative reviews. A third of respondents will increase their budget this year for reputation management tools by up to 25 percent.

MGMA’s annual physician compensation analysis shows that primary care physician salaries have increased 10 percent in the last five years – double that of specialty physicians.
