This is the beginning of my contributions to the new Med-Care Blog so I thought I’d give you a little insight as to what I might “blog” about moving forward.
As many of you know, I come from a sales, sales management, and clinical background so I will at times focus on the clinical aspects that affect our business, as well as management, leadership, and team building. Please be patient with me.
My background in managed care organizations, disease state management, and pharmacoeconomics has helped me better understand why some plans do silly things with their benefit designs, network relationships, and sales and marketing budgets and materials. Sometimes I like what I see happening but more often than not I don’t like what I see happening. Whatever the case, it is good to try and understand the “why” rather than fight the big dog. (You can always bark if you want but that doesn’t always get you a boney treat.)
When it comes to management, leadership and team building, and related items, I will share my opinions with you and try to relay successful tips that are helping everyone be even better at what you do. One of these days I will even share with you my favorite topic “Shadow of a Leader” which focuses on the shadow that you cast and the shadows of others that you pass through. Deep huh?
Let the blogging begin ……. Dano
