Monday at 1 PM: a webinar featuring Dr. Marty Makary, Leah Binder, and Marshall Allen

Do you know whether heartburn pills are safe for long-term use?


Dear TSW nation,

So maybe this posting is not funny like last month’s, when Angioscreen won the uncoveted Deplorables Award.  But “funny” isn’t going to give you insights into how to perform more effectively — other than, of course, not using Angioscreen, a decision that will benefit your workforce immeasurably.

This posting has a bit more substance to it, announcing a webinar Monday, March 22nd at 1 PM EDT on “Hospital Financial Ethics.” It will feature a real price-gouging incident with a real bill — and a real patient with a real name (James Hamilton).

This bill will be deconstructed by an expert panel. I am humbled (which doesn’t happen often) by the talent we’ve been able to attract to this panel, none of whom even need an introduction:

  • Marty Makary
  • Leah Binder
  • Marshall Allen

You can register here.


And as long as you are signing up for our webinars, there are more on the docket (all at 1 PM EDT)

April 7: An “Emergency Webinar” on overcoming vaccine hesitancy in your workforce.

April 22: The best premature birth avoidance technology we have ever seen…and we never endorse vendors.  We’re making an exception here because they actually do something that employees love and saves money besides.

May 12: The Top Ten Easiest Employee Behavior Changes.  Turns out — who knew? — that employees can’t keep weight off, they don’t like broccoli, and they already buckle their seat belts. But there are ten behavior changes that either save money or improve health or both, that are so easy to make you don’t need to bribe or fine them.

June 15: Never Pay the First Bill.  A pre-publication look at Pro Publica uber-investigator Marshall Allen’s new book of the same name on how not to get snookered by a healthcare bill.

July 15: Featuring Dr. Eric Bricker (yes, the very same) on aligning incentives with your providers, your PBMs and your consultants.


In the immortal words of the great philosopher Pat Benatar, hit me with your best shot.
