FierceHealthcare launches publication aimed at physician practices

Jim O'NeilWelcome to FierceMarkets' eighth healthcare publication. Published digitally each week, FiercePracticeManagement will deliver breaking news, analysis, trends and commentary aimed at helping busy physician practice managers make informed business decisions and stay ahead of the competition.

Our editor, Debra Beaulieu, may be a familiar name to many of you. A career journalist who has focused on the physician market for nearly eight years, Debra was a senior managing editor at HealthLeaders Media for seven years, where she wrote and edited The Doctor's Office newsletter and edited several books for physician leaders, including Physician Entrepreneurs: Strength in Numbers and Orthopedics and Spine: Strategies for Superior Service Line Performance.

We're thrilled to have Debra on our Fierce team as the top editor of FiercePracticeManagement. And we're equally thrilled to be launching our eighth healthcare publication!

Our healthcare group at FierceMarkets has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 12 months. In addition to our flagship publication, FierceHealthcare, we also publish three health IT-related publications (FierceHealthIT, FierceMoblieHealthcare, FierceEMR); a blog for healthcare leaders (Hospital Impact); a healthcare finance newsletter (FierceHealthFinance); and a payer-focused newsletter (FierceHealthPayer). 

Fierce's all-digital healthcare newsletters now reach more than 167,000 healthcare executives every week. We're proud of our growth, but we couldn't do it without you. Thanks for being part of our Fierce family. We look forward to continuing to serve your information needs.

And as always, please feel free to contact us anytime with your suggestions and feedback.
