Here is the quote of the day from my AIS newsletter...

$1.76 billion ... has been awarded to Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc. as a result of a patent dispute with Abbott Laboratories involving the blockbuster rheumatoid arthritis drug Humira.

As physicians providing care we make approximately 10% of the GDP of US healthcare. It is estimated that rate cuts in medicaid/medicare will save in the neighborhood of 2%.

You doctors know what the cost of pharma as a percentage of the us healthcare gdp is??

I'm guessing better than 10%.

There is a way to significantly slash your practice costs with a service line providing house calls AND let the pharmaceutical industry subsidize ( almost ) the entire cost of your software platform. Want to know how??

Come Hear Me speak at Mayo clinic September 15th about customer experience in making house calls and how health care social media, online community, wireless, and emerging device industry enable a massive disruptive innovation you can take advantage of today in your practice, to beat your competition, improve your professional satisfaction, income and lifestyle. House calls are fun and patients love them, is the bottom line.
