Join me and my guest this week Dr. Kenneth Cohn as we discuss social media in healthcare.
He blogs on topics related to healthcare collaboration at http://healthcarecollaboration.com/blog and on topics relating to physician entrepreneurship at http://thedoctorpreneur.com.
Author of Getting it Done. Getting it Done shares the hard-earned lessons of healthcare professionals who removed roadblocks to clinical and financial excellence. Each chapter describes a real-life dilemma, distills the lessons learned, and provides step-by-step guidance, so that readers don't need to reinvent the wheel.
Dr. Cohn describes himself as a recovering academic surgeon. A sign in his office that reads, “It’s never too late to change what you want to be when you grow up.” His current passion is helping physicians, nurses, and hospital leaders work more interdependently to improve performance.
He is a board-certified general surgeon who obtained his M.D. degree from Columbia College of Physicians Medical School, completed his residency at the Harvard-Deaconess Surgical Service. He was Assistant Professor of Surgery at SUNY Health Science Center at Brooklyn and later moved to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center as Associate Professor of Surgery and Chief of Surgical Oncology at the VA Hospital at White River Junction.
With the change in the medical economic climate, Dr. Cohn entered the MBA program of the Tuck School at Dartmouth and graduated June 1998. He worked initially as a consultant at Health Advances, assisting 6 firms to commercialize new products.
In 2006, Dr. Cohn founded HealthcareCollaboration to leverage the Internet to improve his service.
