With a new year comes a new crop of writers to our Practice Notes blog to provide you with insight, advice, and general knowledge on the healthcare world around you.

Attorney Ike Devji joins the roster of our bloggers with his posts each week, offering thoughts from his eight years of physician-centered practice. He practices from Phoenix, Ariz., as an asset protection lawyer and was named among WORTH Magazine's "Leading Wealth and Legal Advisors."

Devji's blogs will appear on Tuesdays, offering physicians and their staff information to hedge against present liability issues, "separate fact from fiction" when it comes to asset protection, and help readers "keep more of every hard earned dollar they make," he says.

For our readers interested in technology, from government incentives to how your practice can better utilize new tools, we have Marion K. Jenkins sharing his views each Wednesday. Jenkins leads a graduate healthcare IT program at the University of Denver and has his own IT integration firm in Englewood, Colo.

In his blog posts, Jenkins will explore everything from EHR implementation, possible HIPAA violations using tech tools, social networking, and a variety of other topics to get you either to start thinking of how to incorporate new technology into your office or learn more about what you already have in place.

The author and speaker says his blog will offer physicians, "real-life, in-the trenches insight and experience" on health IT issues, "from someone who doesn’t sell a specific software package or system, but works with all different systems - both clinical and business office - to make an entire healthcare facility run."

Joining our team of talented physician bloggers is J. Scott Litton, Jr., a family medicine practitioner based in his hometown of Pennington Gap, Va. Litton will share his experiences as a private practice physician as well as his use of technology, including an EHR and tablet PC, to help him maximize efficiency in his office.

"I am hopeful that my colleagues will find my experiences from seven-and-a-half years of private practice informative and at some times entertaining, as I reflect on the day-to-day occurrences as a small town family physician working in my hometown in rural Virginia," he says.

You can find out more about Litton and his practice each Friday on Practice Notes.

In addition to our new weekly bloggers, you will also notice some new monthly bloggers on our site, sharing their views on the latest practice management trends, legal issues, and other topics that affect you each day.

These new bloggers join our talented crop of current writers to provide you with the latest information and advice directly from the experts. Practice Notes is a place for you - the readers - to engage our writers in discussion, debate, and questions so we hope you too are a new or continuing contributor to this section of PhysiciansPractice.com.
