On the Speaking Trail/The Skyvison Business Lab

Dr. White was in Pittsburgh last night speaking on behalf of Inspire Pharmaceuticals. All of the doctors at Skyvision participate in what they have termed "business process research", the evaluation of medicines, medical devices, and treatments in an effort to improve how well they work. As part of this Dr. White has been traveling a little bit over the last two years to talk about what we have all learned at Skyvision.

It turns out that there is actually a "triple sweet spot" where clinical outcomes (how the disease process turns out), patient experience (how it feels to be treated), and the running of a medical practice come together. It's not enough to think about any one of these. In fact, it's really not enough to only think of two of them. In the best of settings it's actually possible to maximize all three at the same time.

What happens when you get all three of these important things working in tune? Well, it's much more than the sum of the three! You create a "virtuous cycle", the opposite of a vicious cycle, where each success builds another success. What you get is something more like a TEN TIMES better everything! A better result with a really nice experience, all in a practice that is running smoothly and efficiently.

We call this part of our practice the Skyvision Business Lab, and we're open!
