Gary Baldwin at HealthLeaders interviewed me a couple of months ago for an article and it is refreshing that it isn't all about RHIOs. It is a collaborative effort of their writers titled "Your Question is..." My contribution was on "Should we join a RHIO?". Imagine your the CxO and your CEO say, "Should we join this RHIO?"
The other questions your CEO might ask are:
Who are our star managers?
Why are our emergency department wait times so high?
Do we really need consultants? (Now this is a good one!)
Why do we have to do a joint venture with the docs?
What are you doing to grow our margins? :) One of my all time favorites!
And then there is the quick tour through the list of what "not" to say!
