Two Minute Drill: Take time to smell the roses

This week Dr. Jay is coming to you from Virginia Beach for the Two Minute Drill. His good friend Brad Cost is playing cameraman as they were attending the UVCA convention. In this week’s TMD we are talking about beauty and the need to celebrate achieving your goals.

 

Take time to celebrate

Look at this beautiful beach and beautiful ocean, at this amazing setting in Virginia Beach at the UVCA convention.

What Dr. Jay is trying to convey to you in today’s Two Minute Drill, is when things are beautiful, when you are doing great things, when you are achieving your goals, take time to celebrate.

One of the most intelligent brightest behavioral scientists, BJ Fogg, talks about the importance of celebrating victories and building great habits. So, every time you build a habit in your practice or your life, celebrate the fact that you have achieved the goal.

Take the time to smell the roses people!

Celebrate the victories and you will not only be happier, but you will build in even more great habits that achieve even greater levels of success.

That’s this week’s TMD. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what you are celebrating this week.

TMD: Hut Hut!

TMD: Hut Hut!

Two Minute Drill: Hut Hut!

It’s completely appropriate that Dr. Jay is wearing this helmet in today’s Two Minute Drill. This is John Riggins’ helmet, Super Bowl MVP. He was a gamer in the fourth quarter. Watch this week’s TMD as it is all about the fourth quarter and how you can make in-game adjustments to make sure you finish the year strong.

 

Are you winning the game?

Whether the team was winning or losing John Riggins was running over people. He was scoring touchdowns, he was making first downs, he was doing whatever it took to win the game.

So, we ask you where do you stand at the beginning of the fourth quarter? Are you winning the game? And if you are, are you identifying and understanding the inputs that got you there and then finding ways to continuously improve on those inputs so you can finish the year even stronger?

If you are not winning the game, if you are not having the year you hoped you would have, well guess what? You get to rethink your strategies, you get to rebuild your tactics, and you get to restart your action plan so you can finish the year stronger. Just because we didn’t have the best first quarter, second quarter, or third quarter doesn’t mean we don’t make in-game adjustments so that we can finish the game strong.

So, we want you to think about the inputs that got you to your successes. We want you to think about what you need to start doing, stop doing, change what you are doing, or do something even better to get you to that winning score by the end of the year.

That’s this week’s TMD, hut-hut! Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what adjustments you are making to finish the year strong.

TMD: Bad Behavior

TMD: Bad Behavior

Two Minute Drill: Bad Behavior

Today’s topic of conversation is about bad behavior. Dr. Jay is a HUGE Ohio State University fan and so this weekend’s football game is the inspiration for this week’s Two Minute Drill. Make sure you listen until the very end as Dr. Jay also included a little bonus about his trip to Sicily at the request of a few friends.

 

People forgive, but don’t forget

Dr. Jay has had a few moments of bad behavior in his life, mostly in college but maybe a little bit in his later adulthood. No one is perfect, however, Saturday’s incident at the Ohio State football game is the inspiration for this week’s Two Minute Drill.

On Saturday K’Vaughan Pope, a senior linebacker for Ohio State decided he was going to quit the team, throw his equipment (his gloves specifically) into the stands, and then send out two tweets to the universe. One was “F*CK Ohio State” and the second one was “good luck to my teammates”. Now, he has subsequently apologized, and he also said in his apology that he was going to be working on his mental health and we appreciate that. We don’t know what he was going through or what his experience has been like at Ohio State. What we do believe is that people will often forgive but they rarely forget. So, his ability to go into the transfer portal and find another team or another coach that sees this behavior and says, “I don’t know if I want that on my team” could be a problem for him.

So, when we think about this in terms of our leadership skills, capabilities, or even our leadership faux pas, when run into a situation that makes our heads want to spin like the exorcist there are a couple of things we can do to prevent us from having bad behavior that people will often forgive but rarely forget.

Take a deep breath, walk away from the situation. Go into your car and close the doors and windows and scream as loud you need to (we’ve done that several times) but do something that doesn’t create a bad behavior memory. It will save you a lot of humiliation and a lot of apologies and a lot of regret in the future.

That’s today’s topic for the Two Minute Drill. Let’s minimize the bad behavior so we don’t have to worry about the apology, the forgiveness, and people not forgetting.

BONUS SECTION

This is a special bonus section. A request from Dr. Jay’s very close friend who wanted him to comment on his time in Sicily. “It was a great experience, beautiful country, food was incredible, wine was fantastic, views were amazing, and it was not that expensive. One thing that I will share with you if you are going to go, try and check out the north coast, the east coast, and the southwest coast. Just see the whole island because it is truly a beautiful place. Of all the places we went to, Ortigia was my favorite. We stayed in a gorgeous hotel, had a great room, great views, and just enjoyed ourselves. If anyone is interested in going to Sicily, reach out to me. I’d be happy to share all the places we went to with you, so you can enjoy them too.”

TMD: Tracking Patient Goals

TMD: Tracking Patient Goals

Two Minute Drill: Tracking Patient Goals

This week Dr. Jay is traveling again, bringing you the Tuesday Two Minute Drill from Detroit, Michigan. In today’s TMD he is completing the circle on the discussion of self-discharges.

 

Patient goals

Today we are completing the circle on the discussion of self-discharges. We talked about the importance of tracking the ratio of self to doctor discharges. Then we talked about the importance of tracking the reasons why your patients self discharge from care. Now Dr. Jay is talking about how to move the needle to reduce the number of self discharges in your practice.

There are three steps to reduce the number of self discharges in your practice:

    1. Make sure that somewhere on your intake paperwork or patient portal you have a spot for your patients to report what their goals of care are.
    2. When you do your report of findings discuss their specific goals with them and make sure you share the vision-making with them. Also, at this time make sure you employ shared decision-making. This means when you tell them this is the treatment plan, this is the treatment we are going to employ, this is the frequency and duration of your care based on the evidence and my clinical experience, make sure they say yes I understand, yes I agree, yes this is going to help me achieve my goals.
    3. When patients are coming in for regular visits and re-exam make sure you discuss what they believe their progress is toward their goals are. It’s not enough to just ask what is your pain level from 0-10. That’s not enough. You want to make sure you are also tracking their perceived progress toward their goal. So if they want to run a marathon, are they able to run a certain distance now that you’ve delivered a certain amount of care.

Tracking those goals that are important to your patient is critically important to reducing self-discharges. Employ these tactics to make sure your patients complete their care and get the best possible long-term outcome.

Head over to our Facebook page and let us know if you track this information already or how you are going to start tracking your patient’s goals.

TMD: It’s about the patient

TMD: It’s about the patient

Two Minute Drill: It’s about the patient

Dr. Jay in Ortigia, Italy for this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Drill. He is continuing the conversation on metrics that matter. This week he is adding one more thing you should be tracking on your weekly spreadsheet.

 

Metrics that matter

This week Dr. Jay is continuing the conversation around metrics that matter. Last week he talked about the importance of tracking self vs doctor discharge patients.

Self-discharges are critically important to track for a variety of reasons. There is certainly a business use case, but it is really about the patients at the end of the day. It’s about making sure we can reduce this self-discharge number as much as possible because we know one of the most common reasons patients discharge is because they feel better.

We also know from the scientific literature that the most accurate predictor of any future injury is a past injury. Many times this is because patients stop treating a problem when the symptoms go away.

Having a baseline number to know where you stand with the patients that are not completing their care is an important first step. We talked last week about running a report and tracking these numbers at the end of the week in an excel spreadsheet but the next thing we want you to do is to start adding in the reasons WHY patients are self-discharging.

We know from our own data it could be a wide variety of reasons:

  1. They feel better
  2. They don’t feel better/you didn’t get a good clinical outcome with them
  3. Insurance reasons

These are common reasons why patients may self-discharge but you have got to track this information to know about your own patients. So, don’t just create the spreadsheet that identifies if they are doctor or self-discharge but make sure you design the spreadsheet so you know exactly the reasons why.

At the next Two Minute Drill, Dr. Jay is going to talk about what to do for these different categories of reasons of self-discharge so you can attack the issues, get a better result, and get a better clinical outcome for these patients that are self-discharging too soon.

Head over to our Facebook page and let us know if you started tracking your self discharges after last week’s TMD.
