Health care billing is Tough and Deirdre Baggot has the answer

Deirdre Baggot is one of the most talked about business strategist minds around. She has made some headway in an area that is challenging to many; healthcare billing. How should such a sensitive thing work? Should we bill on a per service performed rate or bill a flat rate for all services despite how imperative they were or the end results? Deirdre Baggot is one of the few early pioneers that said, “Why not bundle these items in billable episodes of services performed and tied to charges related to a destined end result? This is essentially the concept behind bundle billing. No matter what side of the healthcare debate somebody is on, an informed person usually prefers this method of medical billing over others. Deirdre Baggot sat down with Inspirey and had some pretty interesting things for us to learn about her. Find out more about Baggot at Beckers Hospital Review

It was a CEO that got her into Consulting

Apparently, a decade within the healthcare billing field, working for large corporate clients, bored Deirdre a great deal. Deirdre Baggot shared that a former CEO of hers was getting bored with the concept too; and he had already begun consulting on the side. The rest is history, as they say. In fact, these two minds formed the Camden group together and this entity was eventually purchased from them by General Electric for a respectable sum. Most people don’t follow a CEO for an escape route when they leave the world of big business!

Camden became Profitable at the Speed of Light!

“Not long, maybe three months…” this was the answer that Deirdre had for the interviewer! Think about this, most businesses spend their first few years trying to become profitable. Mrs. Baggot not only accomplished this in under a year but in merely a quarter of a year. Such a thought is almost unheard of in the world of entrepreneurship. This is even true for those great minds that broke free from the corporate world. Many of these industrious people even require a few years to do what Deirdre had done in under a quarter of one.

Getting a Clear Picture of How the Investment World Works Through Wes Edens

A visionary leader, a skilled entrepreneur and a private equity investor, Wes Edens is one of the biggest names in the corporate world. Born in 1961, Mr. Edens is one of the people who started and steered the growth and expansion of Fortress Investment Group up to where it is today. Fortress Investment Group is among the largest firms that manage alternative assets like railroads and private equity.

Mr. Edens grew up in a ranch in Montana. His mother was a teacher, and his father was a psychiatrist. According to Mr. Wes Edens, he spent most of his childhood outdoors because while he was inside the house, the TV only had two stations so there was only one thing left to do and that was reading. During his teenage years, Mr. Edens engaged in competitive ski racing. Mr. Edens attended the Oregon State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Business Administration 1984. More about of Wes Edens at Bloomberg.

Mr. Eden’s first job was in San Francisco where he worked at a small bank. While Wes Edens was still working at the bank, an acquaintance encouraged him to put Wall Street into consideration as part of his great career moves. Mr. Edens, later on, joined Lehman Brothers. He left the position in 1993 and joined Blackrock as a managing director and partner but ended up leaving in 1997. In 1998, he teamed up with Randal Nardone and Rob Kauffman and started Fortress Investment Group.

According to a Wall Street Journal article, Wes Eden’s investment style is described as one that that is based on creative financing, building enterprises from investments and contrarian bets. Over the years, Mr. Edens has been taking risks and investing in different firms for profit. For instance, in 2010, Wes Edens bought a majority stake in Spring leaf Holdings, for $124 million. Within five years, the value of his stake had risen to $3.5 billion.

Over recent years, Wes Edens has felt the urge to move away, a bit, from making such investments and focus on building companies. It is because of this decision that in 2014 he started a separate firm known as New Fortress Energy. The firm focuses on building clean energy infrastructure in the United States of America and other developing nations. Mr. Edens is also the co-owner of Milwaukee Bucks and an investor in Aston Villa, an English Soccer Club.

Guilherme Paulus Overcame Challenges To Become A Leader In The Tourism Industry

Brazil is often regarded as one of the lowest ranking countries for the ease of doing business. It means that entrepreneurs often find it difficult to set up their businesses. However, the numbers did not stop Guilherme Paulus from realizing his dreams and becoming successful at what he does best.

Paulus is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the tourism industry in Brazil. He was quick to take advantages of the opportunities presented to him early in life and set up a business that is among the top in the country.

Guilherme Paulus was born in Sao Paulo and has a degree in Business Administration. When he was 24, he was approached by a government official Carlos Vicentre Cerchiari who wanted to make Brazil a tourist destination and had ideas for the same. During that time, he was looking for someone to perform the groundwork that would help set up his company. Together they set up a company with the name CVC, and Guilherme Paulus was responsible for the day-to-day operations. They had a store in Sao Paulo, and later he became a one-person army when Cerchiari left the company. By that time, he had understood a lot about tourism, and he had the funds to invest in resorts and hotels. Thus, he became an investor and went on to invest in large resorts that would help offer high-level services to its guests. He set up a new company with the name of GJP Hotels and resorts that currently maintains 14 hotels and resorts in Brazil.

Guilherme Paulus has created a stir in the tourism industry with his innovative ideas and tour packages. In an interview recently, he said that the latest trend that he is excited about is the extensive use of technology in day to day’s life. He believes that technology is transforming business and our way of lives. Guilherme Paulus said that even though he is the chairman of the GJP, he continues to converse and have exchanges with the customers as well as the employees. It helps to know what is happening at the ground level in the company.

Serge Belamant: The Info System Pioneer that first created Blockchain.

How is he an Info System Pioneer?

Serge Belamant is an info systems pioneer because he got in at the very beginning and did quite well for both himself and the business field. It’s as simple as that. The early great performers are the pioneers of any field. It should also be noted that this former high school National Chess Champion moved his piece, so to speak, a number of times during his college career

Did he Switch Majors A Lot?

Like most pioneers, Serge Belamant didn’t settle into something until he knew that he had found the right thing for him to be best at. His first year of undergraduate studies had him listed as an engineer, and this was changed to applied mathematics and computer science for his second year of studies. The third year was a series of info systems studies funded by UNISA.

He had a Unique Approach to Market Offerings…

When you are at a level of computer programming and applied math analysis that Serge Belamant is at, you can really pigeon hole yourself into some interesting applications. For years, the systems that Serge Belamant developed were for the statistical analysis of scientific data. Scientific data has interesting applications. One application Serge was successful in was preventing future droughts by studying data systems for current ones. A number of civics projects (roadways and such) were also benefited from the early systems that Serge worked on. Who else could benefit from new approaches to info systems? The banking, finance and retail industries!

From ATM to Blockchain and then back again?

You’ve read it correctly, it’s ironic really. Serge Belamant developed early systems for these fields that involved ATM changeovers. After selling his services as an employee for several large projects and companies, Serge went on his own to start net1. Net1 not only patented the original version of the blockchain technology, they’ve also developed a debit card that people can use around Europe and without the need of a separate bank to verify the POS eligibility. The card is the actual banking infrastructure! It uses blockchain technology to reference a series of (sometimes offline) ledgers that verify transactions and create an environment in which the card is the bank. It is interesting indeed.

Jacob Gottlieb, Altium Capital Founder, Excited About The Next Big Things In Medicine And About The Companies Finding Them

Advanced stage cancer patients often undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Under these treatments its not unusual for them to fall prey to a host of side effects, one such being mucositis. Mucous membranes, from the mouth on down, ulcerate and inflame. The condition is devastatingly painful and makes eating difficult, besides opening the body up to a host of infections. The physician-founded probiotic and antibiotic company, Oragenics, is at the helm of developing a biotherapeutic approach to mucositis.

Where, one might ask, does a company seeking a cure for mucositis find investment capital? At the same place as Oramed, a company which develops new systems for the oral delivery of drugs, finds investment capital. Also, at the same place where Aramin, which exploits the potential of lipid science to create new interventions for cardiovascular disease, finds investment capital. They all find it at Altium Capital.

Created in 2018, Altium Capital is the brainchild of Jacob Gottlieb. A first rate financier, Gottlieb got his chops at Balyasny Asset Management, prospering as a portfolio manager at a company known for generating absolute returns. From there, he went on to create his own hedge fund, Visium. Yet, long before Altium Capital and Balyasny Asset Management, Jacob Gottlieb was already an aficionado of all things medical and innovative. In fact, Jacob Gottlieb attained a medical degree at New York University, besides garnering a BA, magna cum laude, from Brown University in Economics.

In the end, finance won out as the primary life-path of Jacob Gottlieb. But, he never stopped caring about patients. Moreover, he never stopped being excited about medicine and where it’s going. Hence, Altium Capital, dedicated to finding companies with the same zeal for medicine and the same eagerness to find that next big thing that will make patients lives better.
