This might be something for the newsletter, just thinking out loud. Part B
News has been around a very long time, and many who contributed in the very
beginning are at / near / past retirement. When was the Part B ListServ
started?



I happened to think of this as I scale down my billing business and use my
talents as a volunteer at a local hospital. At 61, I plan to work another 9
years but will be selective on the (paid) projects. Earning a Bachelor's
Degree very late in life (60 yrs old), I know that what I have learned could
be important to the next generation of coders and compliance specialists.



It would be interesting to know what original Part B Listers are doing with
their talents and how they use it for the greater good (Linda Howrey, Jan
Rasmussen, Margaret Christ - only to name a few, I beg the pardon of others
who equally share the timeline).



For those of us who have seen the evolution of healthcare reimbursement and
compliance - from paper to computer/electronic, (and having this forum to
share) - it might be a great idea for an article.



Have a great weekend,

    Karen,

    Good to hear from you -- as always!

    That's an interesting idea. To me the listserv is like a think tank -- smart people kicking around the great questions of billing, coding, and management. I've only been at DH five years but some of my colleagues go back a good deal longer. I'll ask them if they know the origin story. There may even be an archive of the original posts somewhere.

    As for making a story of it, I don't know that the management will go for that -- they're pretty hung up on news/ analysis/ guidance, and who can blame them, it pays the bills -- but maybe we can do a blogpost or something.

    I didn't know you just got a bachelor's! Good job, though I can't imagine what anyone has to teach you at this point.

    I'll get back to you about this.

    Best,
    Roy

    Well, it is something for fodder.



    When it comes to ideas and business concepts – we can run with it, especially in medicine.

    I credit Part B listserv with the success of donself.com as my site was only created originally so that folks on the Part B listserv could share files and forms back and forth, as a kind of repository. The amount of information I've learned from so many that I met online back in '96 - including those that you mentioned as well as Greg, Barbara, Lauren, Fred, John, and many that are not with us any longer is immeasurable. I always regard Part B listserv as the grandaddy of the listservs as it was the first I was on and really started (in my mind) the medium for sharing information and helping others online.

  • I have been on Part B listserve since about 1996 or 1997...I can't
    remember. I haven't been as active due to the complexities of healthcare
    management, government regulations, and the three ring circus of insurance
    companies. I still lurk.

    It is so nice to see familiar names on here! Charlene if you remember me, I worked at AdvancedMD for close to nine years and would talk to you frequently back in that day. I see you are at the same clinic. Hope all is well.



    I used to subscribe to Part B while at a clinic before my AMD days.

  • I absolutely remember you, Michelle! You were a great help to us and I
    wondered where you went! It is great to see you on the list AND part of
    Decision Health!

    Yes...I have been with NSFM for 12 years this month. We still use
    AdvancedMD (and have been since 2005). I prefer the "old days" before AMD
    was acquired by other investors, but it is still a great practice
    management system!

  • I think it is important for any organization to have, share and maintain
    their stories, traditions and [rich] history. Too often we get consumed
    with the present and short-term future focus and neglect the valued history
    that brought us to this moment in time.
    Part B News has been a valued staple in my practice management career. It
    has certainly complemented the various resources we all need to perform at
    high levels.
    Best,
    Bob
