I just got a copy of the March/April issue, and it looks great! Love the full color photos, and the ads look great, too. I didn't know about Inside Healthcare before you contacted me that day, but of course our CEO did. In fact, he reads each issue and adopted a new nursing model here after reading about it in the August 2008 issue.
You and the staff there made the whole process not only easy but fun. I've worked with hundreds of media people and, frankly, I usually wind up with a headache or at least a little heartburn. But you did what you said you would and followed through when you said you would. That is a real confidence-builder. The thing that really impressed me was that you allowed us to proofread the article and make changes before it went to press. That assures accuracy and creates good relationships. I wish newspapers could understand that as well. But that's another story. Thank you for all your help. I truly enjoyed working with Inside Healthcare.

Barry L. Cheshier, Director of Marketing and Public Relations
Hill Country Memorial Health System

I just wanted to thank you for sending copies of September’s issue. We received them today, and MedSynergies couldn’t be happier. We greatly appreciate your interest in Frank as a source, and we thought the article did a great job of organizing such a complicated process and explaining how to improve the revenue cycle from the front-end of the office to the back.

Taylor Stansbury
HCK2 Partners for MedSynergies

I have to compliment you on a well-researched and well-written article. Thanks again!

Rick Wright, President and CEO

I appreciated the positive article produced by Ashley McGown in the March/April issue of Inside Healthcare on my company, Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. Initially, I was reluctant to allocate the interview time however the effort was worth the product your team produces. I appreciate the freedom to articulate my thoughts and the importance of perfection at Hall. Please express my appreciation to Ashley and staff for the accurate and positive portrayal of Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. and me.

Harvey L. Hall, Founder and President
