Pediatric Patient Recall Strategies Recorded Webinar

A few weeks ago, with the help from some friends, we hosted a webinar on the topic of Patient Recall Strategies for pediatricians.  We had more than 50 attendees (which is a lot for these things) and I was glad to get this particular subject recorded for reference. If you weren’t able to attend (or …

Pediatric E&M Coding Training – Free Videos!

A few months ago, one of our pediatric practice management friends reached out to us to look for any good on-line resources for coding training for his pediatric clients.  “Someone must have a WWW site with videos explaining how E&M coding works for pediatricians.”  Not really, it turns out. So over the last year, Jan …

Independent Pediatrician, Vol 5 Is Out!

The Independent Pediatrician continues to thrive!  Our fifth issue is on its way to approximately 60,000 recipients via co-delivery with Contemporary Pediatrics.

Verden Viewpoint, Vol 2

It looks like Verden Viewpoint has taken that next step up the quality ladder with their latest installment. Sure, it has a little knock off piece from yours truly, but that’s definitely the weak link in a chain of over a dozen articles related to managing your practice.  Great stuff.

ICD-10 News

The Podcast Is Back!

Update: iTunes users can subscribe to the podcast right here! That’s right, the mellifluous sounds of my voice are back. It’s an entirely new podcast – new program, new people…same focus, though.

Introducing ViewPoint!

Every now and then, we get a pleasant surprise.  I’d like to introduce ViewPoint, the new digital-only magazine from our friends at The Verden Group.  When Susanne sent me a note saying, “Check this out…” I spent the next 45 minutes reading it from cover to cover. ViewPoint is TVG’s effort to review the entire …

Work/Life Balance Teaser and Gameification

* Don’t miss my request at the bottom of today’s post. Sometimes I have so much to share, I don’t have time to share it.  Two big projects are dominating my time right now: We are preparing the second issue of Independent Pediatrician.  That’s right, we’re closing in quickly on the second issue, we want …

Work / Life Balance Survey

In the second issue of The Independent Pediatrician, one point of focus will be the Work / Life Balance challenge faced by so many pediatricians. We have developed a quick, anonymous survey that we invite any and all pediatricians to complete – I will share the results here, on SOAPM, and in issue #2! Please, …
