What an enjoyable conversation with Ronnie Smith, MD, of Vidalia, GA. This podcast is not just an exploration in to Dr. Smith's career as a physician and entrepreneur, but also a philsophical expose in prejudices.
Ronnie is a country doctor - by his own declaration. And he has the drawl to back it up! But while many, if not most, in today's society would hear this Southern man talk and prejudge him with all of the requisite 'Southern' tropes, to spend time with Ronnie is to be in the presence of genius.
We learn about his upbringing in Cochran, GA, why he wanted to become a physician, and the path he took to get where he is today. We learn of the many 'firsts' that Ronnie can claim relative to medical procedures, as well as his brilliantly simple approach to providing care to his patients. That simplicity has not only served his patients well, but also been the catalyst for the formation of several companies in the healthcare space.
His motto is Healthy, Happy Patients.
Home patient monitoring is an exploding trend in the healthcare landscape. Keeping a watchful eye on what is going on with a parent, while keeping their family and care providers in the loop, is definitely a market demand. In this episode, I speak with Juliette Simpson - co-founder of AllHealth Choice. We talk about what makes their approach unique and why Charlie is a name you should know.

On January 15th of this year, Nathan Hope made a blogpost on MyHomecareBiz’s website. It is an interesting and informative article about the Next Generation Accountable Care Organization Model. The status and evolution of ACO models are topics that can strongly divide opinion amongst the different segments of the Healthcare Continuum.
