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.

Dr. David Samadi Helps Spur Prostate Health Awareness

Growing older is inevitable, but we still have a say, when it comes to how aging impacts our lives. If you’re a middle-aged man, you’ll probably agree that it now takes a concerted effort to do things that once came so naturally, including having sex with your spouse or significant other. Let’s face it, as we age our testosterone levels decrease, oftentimes, resulting in decreased libido, erectile dysfunction or, worst yet, an enlarged prostate. So, what can men in their 40s do to circumvent these types of problems? Naturally, it comes down to living a healthy lifestyle; studies have shown that excessive drinking, smoking, and stress all contribute to poor sexual health in men. So, it stands to reason that finding better ways to cope with stress, quitting smoking, and reducing your consumption of alcoholic beverages will greatly improve your sex life.

As we get older, we should be scheduling annual physical exams; regular checkups can ensure that you’re healthy enough for sexual activity and also detect health problems, like an enlarged prostate, early. Additionally, healthy food choices can greatly improve your overall health, which also includes a healthier sex life; for example, replacing junk food with foods that are rich in antioxidants and nutrients have been shown to optimize sexual performance, while simultaneously reducing your risk of heart disease.

Assuming you have already taken all of these steps to improve your sexual health, what else can you do? If you’re interested in improving stamina, or maybe have concerns about premature ejaculation, Kegel exercises may be in order. What are Kegel exercises? It is a type of exercise that targets the connecting muscles of your penis and tailbone. Studies have shown that individuals who routinely practice Kegel exercises have benefited from not only delayed ejaculations but have also enjoyed better orgasms.

A huge proponent, and advocate, of men’s health, is Dr. David Samadi; he is a medical contributor for the Fox News Channel, where he provides invaluable information related to prostate health, which includes surgical and non-surgical treatment options. According to his Linkedin profile, Dr. David Samadi attended Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where he earned his Md, URO-ONCOLOGY degree, in 2002. After completing his studies, Dr. Samadi began his career with the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York, serving as the Director of laparoscopic surgery. In 2007, Dr. Davis Samadi joined Mount Sinai Hospital, also based in New York, where he served as Chief of Robotic Surgery. Needless to say, Dr. David Samadi possesses a wealth of knowledge and is a great asset to the Fox News Health segment, for the Fox News Channel.
