Deductible Resets Are Coming In January to Freeze Up Your Operating Income: Are You Prepared?

Posted by Allyson Howard on Nov 8, 2019 10:30:00 AM

As any home or vehicle owner knows, preparing for the big freeze ahead of the winter months can save you countless headaches and unexpected bills. For example, last year during the midwestern polar vortex I had a toilet pipe that went through my garage wall freeze due to poor insultation. Luckily, we were able to get it fixed before the pipe burst, to the tune of about $600. You can bet that we are more prepared this year with better insulation and a garage space heater. If you would spend the time to winterproof your major investments like homes and cars, then why not your medical practice?

Bad Debt and Aged A/R: Symptoms of Financial Infection

Posted by Allyson Howard on Aug 29, 2019 11:10:21 AM

Hey folks! Guess what will be here before we know it? Flu season! Yup! In a month or so, it will be time to get those flu shots or stock up on elderberry syrup if shots aren’t your thing. My favorite part of the flu? Hmm. I’m torn between the bone-cracking aches and pains and the feeling that my body has been thrown into a raging bonfire, alternating with full-body chills. Sounds like fun, right? Yeah... not so much.

Health iPASS, Nextech, & Dermatology Groups: The Next Powerful Triad?

Posted by Allyson Howard on Aug 22, 2019 4:48:09 PM

Consider the lowly triangle. Perhaps it’s not so ordinary after all, but in fact the most important shape of all? Throughout human history, the number three is actually kind of a big deal.  In art, in storytelling, even in architecture (I’m looking at you equilateral triangle!) things that come in threes are powerful, memorable, and more satisfying than things that come in twos, fours, or pretty much any other number. This sentiment is reflected in the Latin phrase “Omne Trium Perfectum” meaning everything that comes in threes is perfect.  Talk about a ringing endorsement from the ancients.

28 States Have Enacted Healthcare Price Transparency Legislation. It’s Time to Do Better!

Posted by Allyson Howard on Mar 2, 2019 8:00:00 AM

You may have heard the phrase, “Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door," which is often attributed to Transcendentalist writer and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson. This quote embodies the power of innovation to solve even the smallest problems. But what if your problem was much bigger than a mouse? What if it involved an enormous industry that makes up 17.9 percent of the U.S. GDP, an industry where life and death literally hang in the balance? What if that industry was hemorrhaging money, with skyrocketing costs beyond any other developed country sometimes without the quality to justify such costs? You have likely guessed that we are speaking of the healthcare industry. The “mousetrap” here are the current efforts to increase healthcare price transparency. And you know what? Many providers need to do something better.
