Professional networking for health providers and allied services. *Meet and become familiar with diverse health professionals and their practices. *Discuss & critique marketing and business development tools ranging from new media, to traditional media, to in-person opportunities. *Assist in developing public education opportunities for members. *Discuss practice management and networking in an integrative health setting *Explore developments in electronic medical records, HIPAA, and legal developments affecting primary care and supporting practices *Explore how the state of health care inhibits and/or advantages your practice, what changes we might like to see, and how we can be involved in shaping those changes Why "integrative" health rather than "complementary" or "alternative"? In my mind, integrative health care embraces diverse disciplines without placing one in supremacy to another. Versus complementary care which supports allopathic medicine, but from a subordinate role, or alternative care, which supplants allopathic care. In integrative care, there are specific times and conditions in which to use different modalities. Some conditions may be addressed by multiple modalities, while other conditions may respond best to one particular modality. Many business networking groups have one representative from a particular type of business and focus on shared referrals within the network. One purpose of this group is to expand options within the field of health care. Not every patient will respond to every practitioner equally. Practitioners within the same discipline will have different specializations and strengths. Therefore, we will welcome many representatives of any given field. Within this group, other health care practitioners should be viewed as colleagues more than competitors. As the group begins, meetings will be focused on getting to know one another and individual interests. As we mature, activities will diversify and be more goal- or topic-oriented. Group fees will be event-driven. Who should join this group? I am primarily looking for health care providers, but support services including accounting, lawyers, office services, insurance billing, computer hardware and software developers specializing in health care are also needed. Practitioners and disciplines sought include, but are not limited to MDs, osteopaths, naturopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, psychotherapists, dentists, herbalists, nurse practitioners, nurses, massage therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists, personal trainers, case managers, martial arts instructors, yoga instructors.
