Murder mysteries and psychological thrillers more your style? Check out the writings of Franciscan Health (IN) cardiologist Louis Janeira, MD. He has published eight books and 11 plays under the pseudonym L. Jan Eira. Fitting writing into his schedule was no easy task; he wound up hiring a driver so that he could write in the backseat during his three-hour commute. “I always knew I wanted to be a doctor,” Janeira told the local paper, “but my writing makes me feel good and ‘lights up’ a part of my brain I don’t get to do in daily life.”

This article profiles Liine, a Raleigh, NC-based startup that has developed sales lead software that sits on top of a physician practice’s phone system. The technology helps front-office staff turn prospective patients into repeat customers, identifies what service patients are calling about, and helps administrators better understand how their patients find their practices. “Phones are a black box,” says co-founder Bradley Blaser. “Doctors don’t know how many new lead calls are or what marketing channels are driving them. There’s no real process to optimize those conversations to increase their conversion rate.”
