MDNG to Host Live Online Discussion with Maverick Physician Jay Parkinson, MD

PLAINSBORO, N.J., May 23, 2008; MDNG, a publication that reaches nearly a quarter million physicians each month, announced a free, interactive online discussion that will provide physicians an opportunity to speak with Jay Parkinson, M.D., the physician innovator whose unique practice model has made him a household name. The live discussion will be held on May 28, 2008, at 8:00 p.m. EDT at http://www.mdnglive.com/chat/JayParkinson.

During the discussion, Parkinson will answer questions about his unique practice model and describe in detail his new corporate venture with the healthcare firm Myca. With his new practice, called Hello Health, scheduled to open in Brooklyn on June 1, Parkinson is aiming to redefine the model of healthcare delivery and provide a viable option for the nation's millions of uninsured and under-insured.

Attendees will be able to have a real-time discussion with Parkinson, on topics as far-ranging as consumer-driven health plans, the erosion of the primary care model, the lack of awareness among both physicians and patients about the true cost of healthcare services, and how technology is fueling his efforts to bring customer service back to the patient-physician dynamic. Parkinson will also be available to discuss how he plans to roll out his new model of primary care beyond his home in Brooklyn, one facility at a time.

Bill Schu, Editorial Director for MDNG, will moderate the discussion. Attendees can submit questions during the live conversation or beforehand by going to http://www.mdnglive.com/chat/JayParkinson.
