Do You Believe Doctors Are Systems, My Friends-David Shaywitz - Health. Care. - Forbes

Do You Believe Doctors Are Systems, My Friends-David Shaywitz - Health. Care. - Forbes | Doctor Data | Scoop.it

Physicians owe it to themselves and their patient clients to provide better customer service along side high quality medical care. However, patients aren 't systems and do not follow the algorithm set forth. Every physician knows that even their most diligent patient client will be non compliant. Its just part of human nature.

 

In addition, experts and authorites are always going to be needed to sort out the data, which is why we read the opinion of people like the author of the article.

 

So doctoring will never be obsolete.

Pharma ban Promo Gifts to Docs. Is it better for patient care? Promotional Products Infographic

Pharma ban Promo Gifts to Docs. Is it better for patient care? Promotional Products Infographic | Doctor Data | Scoop.it

Let's face it, we all find statistics a little bit on the boring side. However, add a few simple graphics and hey presto the boring suddenly becomes something of interest and often allows us to see the wood from the trees. If you are like me and 'mathematically challenge' then infographics represent the perfect way in which to understand statistics.

 

I recently came across this great infographic about the promotional products industry and I thought that I would share this with you. Some of the information even suprised me and I hope that you find it useful.
