Be honest.

At some point in the last year, you've pretended to understand what the heck the hottest new health company was doing when you were privately thinking, "Huh?"

Patient experience and the bottom-line impact on a practice

Practices that deliver exceptional experience often demonstrate strong financial performance and efficient operations. Join us to learn how to identify the most impactful connections between patient experience and financial performance, how to measure, track and improve patient experience as it relates to the bottom line, and identify patient experience measures that affect financial performance.

Or perhaps you've thrown the lingo in yourself, knowing that stringing together enough of the right industry buzzwords might make your idea stand out (or blend in) among peers all saying the same things.

At FierceHealthcare, we know we can't escape some of these words (or phrases.) But we also know we're not alone in our exasperation over all the overused language. So in the spirit of the March Madness basketball-bracket mania we've created our first-ever Healthcare Buzzwords tournament.

We'd like our readers to help us pick the biggest offender—the word we'd all like to retire in 2019.

For our first round of voting, we've put together 64 overused words in healthcare right now. Official voting will stay open through Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
