Call for Submissions: Medical Economics Physician Writing Contest
Medical Economics is seeking writing entries from physicians on how they fought back against management challenges
Physicians and their practices are in a state of major change—from the struggle to remain economically viable under difficult economic conditions, to staying on top of new government mandates, and implementing and using electronic health records.
Medical Economics wants to help physicians compete and win against the multitude of management challenges facing physicians in 2014. That’s why we are introducing a new contest asking physicians to share their stories, strategies, and approaches to fighting a myriad of management challenges.
Entering is simple: Send us an 800- to 1,200-word essay on how your practice has fought management challenges. Up to five entrants will be notified in writing 60 days after the close of the contest and will receive $500 when accepted for publication in Medical Economics and/or on www.medicaleconomics.com (which is a part of the modernmedicine.com network). The editorial staff will judge, determine, and notify contest winners.
Some of the topics could include:
Solutions to falling revenue or innovating a workflow to save time, money, and/or see more patients
How to improve poor adherence and better engage patients in your practice.
Strategies to ease prior authorization headaches
Ancillary services that work in primary care
Team strategies that improve efficiency
Negotiating with payers
Implementing new technology
Submissions will be accepted until May 10, 2014.
How to enter
Contest details: With each submission, please include:
800-1,200 word essay
Contact e-mail, address, telephone number.
Writing guidelines: While we are asking to keep submissions from 800 to 1,200 words, please be as specific as possible with your recommendations. Remember, this contest is created to help physicians build successful practices, and the winning entries will offer enough detail to help your colleagues apply these winning principles to improve their practices.
