I get bogged down pretty easily by certain texts, but this book is easy to read and understand.

Medical Practice Management in the 21st Century: the Handbook

October 23, 2008 | Comments Off on Medical Practice Management in the 21st Century: the Handbook

Mastering the art of medical practice management requires knowledge that most physicians don’t learn in medical school, residency, and fellowship training. Successful practice management in the 21st century rrequires physicians to understand how to organize and manage a practice, manage their finances, recruit, work with, and manage people within and outside of the practice, improve healthcare delivery and clinical outcomes, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Medical Practice Management in the 21st Century; the handbook addresses multiple aspects of medical practice management. It offers both background information and practical tools. The workbook format, supported by web-based tools, allows busy physicians to gian a basic understanding of many topics, determine strategies for their practices, and seek additional information when they want it. This guide will be ideal for both physicians who need business guidance as they begin their careers and physicians who are already in practice and want to enhance thier business skills. Many physicians can’t afford or choose not to hire a professional practice administrator or manager; this book will help them assume managerial responisbilities with the same level of confidence that they bring to clinical care.

Customer Review: pertinent, readable, comprehensive and to the point

A lot of pertinent material for these times in medicine written in a concise and highly readable format. I have been in a urology practice over 30 years and I am purchasing the book for my 4 associates so we are all up to speed and on the same page as we plan for future growth and adjustment in this rapidly changing health care environment.

Integrative Medicine: Achieving Wellness Through the Best of Eastern and Western Medical Practices

October 22, 2008 | Comments Off on Integrative Medicine: Achieving Wellness Through the Best of Eastern and Western Medical Practices

Customer Review: Wonderful! Easy to read and comprehend; gave me good insight

I found Ms. Phalen’s work to be fresh. A must read for those who are less than enamored with the pompous culture of American medicine and believe that physicians are becoming too oriented toward technical advances and less interested in the true health of each patient. It gives a number of alternatives in our search to find “The virutal fountain of youth.” As baby boomer’s come closer and closer to our golden years, this text will give us some good ideas on how to gracefully accept our age and live a productive life well into those golden years. I’ll read it again, soon!

The Practice of Autonomy: Patients, Doctors, and Medical Decisions

October 22, 2008 | Comments Off on The Practice of Autonomy: Patients, Doctors, and Medical Decisions

This is a book written across the grain of contemporary ethics, where the principle of autonomy has triumphed.It is an attempt to see the law of medicine, the principles of bioethics, and the encounter between doctor and patient from the patient’s point of view. While Schneider agrees that many patients now want to make their own medical decisions, and virtually all want to be treated with dignity and solicitude, he argues that most do not want to assume the full burden of decision-making that some bioethicists and lawyers have thrust upon them. What patients want, according to Schneider, is more ambiguous, complicated, and ambivalent than being “empowered.” In this book he tries to chart that ambiguity, to take the autonomy paradigm past current pieties into the uncertain realities of modern medicine.
