PODIATRISTS IN THE NEWS
Feet Not on People's Minds: NM Podiatrist
 
A recent survey showed that nearly eight out of 10 Americans have experienced foot pain and many of those who experience chronic foot pain are more likely to have pain in other parts of their body, The National Pain Report noted.
 
Dr. Frank Spinosa 
 
"It’s not surprising to see how many people are affected by foot pain, when survey results show that we view our feet as the least important body part in terms of our overall health and well-being," said former APMA President Frank Spinosa, DPM. "Our feet are literally and figuratively the furthest things from our minds."

Dr. David Zuckerman
 
Zuckerman Future Technologies is a direct importer of this device. Dr. Zuckerman has created a unique way to keep the price at a competitive rate for fellow podiatrists. “When I can keep my costs down, everybody wins – including the patient,” said Zuckerman.

PRACTICE MANAGEMENT TIP OF THE DAY
Clean up the A/R Before Putting the Practice on the Market - Part 1
 
Thinking of selling your practice?  Looking to be acquired by the hospital? Merging with another group? If you’re contemplating any of these scenarios, it’s time to clean up the accounts receivable (A/R). And even if you’re not, routinely cleaning up the A/R is a sound business practice. Develop an A/R work plan in three steps. 
 
1. Assess the situation. -  First, generate an aged accounts receivable report that segregates patient A/R from insurance A/R. Create the workplan to initially focus on A/R > 90 days old. Review the breakdown of accounts by dollar amount. Use automated features in the billing system to write off patient balances under $25 to internal collections. Next, focus on the small number of high balances.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (CLINICAL)
From: Paul Betschart, DPM
 
I have used Cantharone solution as well with great success in children. I recommend the regular Cantharone, not the Cantharone Plus in younger children. Leave on overnight, then wash off. Blisters are usually dry. Fluid-filled blisters can be drained at home by the parent. Also highly effective is cimetidine orally (20-40 mg/kg). It comes in 100ml liquid. Your pharmacy will have to order it. Not too terrible a taste either.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NON-CLINICAL)
From: Brian Kiel, DPM
 
Any compounding pharmacy can make a 10% formalin solution. None of the chains such as Walgreens will do it.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (PM NEWS QUICK POLLS)
From: Tip Sullivan, DPM
 
Just a note of warning. In my state in addressing this issue years ago, I was told by the attorney for the state board of medical license that podiatrists could not administer the medications used in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) even though they may take the ACLS course and get their card. Out of scope. All we can do is call 911 and Basic life support.
