Happy Holidays to all of you! It’s the Friday before Christmas, so we thought we’d go for some holiday humor. Hopefully you have a great weekend and a great holiday.


It’s amazing what technology can replace. I still think most technology will augment what we’re doing in healthcare, but if we’re not involved the tools will replace us.


I guess we all have issues to deal with and why mental health is so important and often forgotten.


Far too many hospitals have really felt this one with all the healthcare mergers that have happened.

Happy Holidays to each of you! Thanks for reading!

If you’re like me, no doubt you’ve gotten dozens of emails saying “Happy Holidays”. While I love the sentiment of wishing someone a happy holiday, an email with an image seems to lack value. Does sending these virtual cards really have an impact? I’m not saying that sending them is a bad thing. I just don’t know if it’s a good thing.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m thankful that I have people who think and care about me. I also love this holiday season. I just don’t think an image in an email captures the spirit of the season very well. It seems like we can do better.

Today I tweeted the following:

In this new world of business we have a lot of superficial relationships. How many of those relationships get to the point where you know the specific details of someone’s life as opposed to just having some transactional, albeit friendly, relationship?

Don’t get me wrong. I have an issue with this as much as the next person. Maybe it’s also not something worth solving. Maybe we have the relationships the way we do for a reason. However, this holiday season I’m kicking around this idea.

My gut tells me that we’d all be a little happier if we had deeper relationships with more people. No doubt some of them will be disappointing. Certainly some of them will cause added heartache. In some cases it might even complicate life. However, I think these deeper relationships will also prove to enhance life in a way that can’t be bought or sold.

In case you’re wondering, I love when someone wishes me a Merry Christmas. I love to celebrate the Christmas holiday. If you don’t, then Happy Holidays to you. However, you’re welcome to wish me a Merry Christmas.
