What is a SoundPractice Podcast?
A podcast enables anyone to have audio content delivered automatically to their PC, Mac or mobile device whenever a new MP3 file is placed on the SoundPractice.net website. For more information, read a summary of the technology at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/podcast.
What is a Blog?
Blogs are interactive web logs -- collections of articles, ideas, news, facts and opinions that are posted on the Web. The goal is to bond constituents together and create a channel for ideas and opinions.
Greenbranch Publishing will direct the content of the SoundPractice.net blogs but readers will guide the editorial postings.
The Journal of Medical Practice Management has a 20-year track record of providing information that physicians and administrators need to help their practices thrive. Published every other month, the subscription-based The Journal of Medical Practice Management (www.mpmnetwork.com) focuses on delivering "how-to" advice for delivering high quality care, increasing patients' satisfaction and improving medical practices' profitability.
With an emphasis on working smarter and more efficiently, each issue features a host of proven strategies for dealing with fiscal management, marketing, information technology, benefits and compensation, legal and tax issues, office operations, coding, and human resources that practice administrators, practice managers and physicians face on a daily basis. Authoritative articles are presented in a format that is appealing to readers and advertisers alike.

"Greenbranch Publishing has demonstrated both leadership and foresight with this project," said Kent Bottles, MD, incoming Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Medical Practice Management. "SoundPractice.net will provide a forum for provocative points of view that merit consideration. In addition, the podcasts will present Journal content in a sophisticated technology readily accessible via audio feed. SoundPractice.net will enable healthcare professionals to brainstorm with their colleagues, swap ideas and share business solutions. Everyone is always talking about how healthcare is slow to adopt new technology; this is one example where a healthcare journal is leading the way," said Dr. Bottles.
