Doctors: have you passed your emotional intelligence test?

When doctors are emotionally in tune, do patients get better? It seems to make sense, and health organizations have been adding evaluations of MDs on emotional intelligence factors for several years.

Patients, in French research, are more willing to listen to female doctors and more likely to benefit from positive adherence. While the research took place only in France, I wouldn’t be surprised that it’s true in other developed countries.

Innovation hell?

Ever work with a company and you realize, over a few months, that it’s just not the place for you? Maybe because everyone working there has cobwebs behind their ears, or because that Remington typewriter they so enthusiastically offered you doesn’t manage to connect to the cloud? Not me. No, never. Uh uh. (If you haven’t noticed, I actually LOVE old technology and have for years. But on a shelf, not my desk).

An adventure in innovation... 150 years ago. An adventure in innovation… 150 years ago.

End of life, end of funds

Great NYT article last week about the end of life institutional shuffle. Many institutions, and the doctors who work in them, will vacuum up every last cent of yours and medicare’s money before they let you go.

IPO Stocks

I have created a live stock ticker on the MRVertex home page (left column) that tracks pricing for all 2014 Healthcare IPOs (companies priced through August). I am working on ways to show performance gains since launch; I have that info and just need to embed it in the front page code. I’ll also be updating the companies in the next few days to include any launches in September.

I guess we’ve come a ways since Edison banged out one of these in a few days back in 1870…
