Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
Access MediQuip announced today that its CEO, Prakash Patel, M.D., is launching a blog at prakashpatelmd.com to cover issues and spark a dialogue about health care in general, surgical implants in particular, and other public policy and business issues trending today.
“In my travels throughout the health care system, in business in general, as a physician, and as a husband and father of two, I’ve developed a worldview that I want to share, test, change and cultivate through a meaningful exchange with readers,” Dr. Patel said. “I want to debate, convince, and be convinced; I hope to advance solutions, birth a cause, and make people think; and to have some fun along the way.”
Dr. Patel said he plans to cover a broad range of issues, from big data in health care and the importance of transparency, to orchestrating an effective coexistence between the pursuit of quality care and cost containment. He will also address how quality, sustainable outcomes, cost of care, reporting, reimbursements and overall financial performance converge to drive health care in this post-reform era, where all health care entities -- whether a hospital, a physician practice, a health plan, etc. – will intermingle and could even emerge as competitors.
