Deirdre Baggot, who is a healthcare business strategist and an expert in the healthcare payment industry, began her career as a staff nurse. Later, she moved to work for the University of Michigan System. Baggot made another move in 2006 to Denver, Colorado when the Cardiac and Vascular Institute of SCL Health offered her the senior administrator position. In her short time there, Baggot was able to help over 500 people. Her next job was with GE Healthcare Partners, and it was here that she was able to make several improvements to the healthcare payment system.
Throughout her career within the healthcare system, Baggot has implemented her strategies in over 200 healthcare systems countrywide. She has spoken at numerous conferences and has written over 20 papers on the topic of bundle payments within the healthcare system. She has served in leadership capacities at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Academic Healthcare and The University of Michigan Health System. Visit on her twitter for more updates.
Baggot has been working solely as a consultant since 2010 and has not looked back. She gives the credit to a former CEO who gave her a push into the consulting game. Baggot believes that her favorite part of what she does is that she gets to help a lot of people. She spends time listening to her clients about what their needs are and works hard to solve their problems. This, in itself, is why her job is challenging. It takes time to find the answers for her clients. It is not easy to reconstruct a business model when the market itself is shrinking in this particular industry.
There is one trend in the health industry that Baggot tends to be most excited and that is wearables. Wearables, like the Fitbit, allow individuals to take their own health care into their own hands. There is a positive accountability with the wearable devices. Baggot believes that the biggest challenge to the healthcare industry is politics. When the current president was elected, there was some uncertainty as to what the future of healthcare was going to be.

Vijay Eswaran is a Malaysian philanthropist, author, telecom engineer, photographer, motivational speaker and entrepreneur born October 07, 1960. In 2005, his book In the Sphere of Silence was published in which he explains how he starts each day in silence for one hour; also this year, he and his wife Umayal established “Rythm Foundation” and “Vijayaratnam Foundation,” the latter of which is named after his father. Through these philanthropic institutions, he addresses the pressing needs of children and their families in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Through the Vijayaratnam Foundation, they established TAARANA, a school in Malaysia for developmentally differently abled children.
In 2008, his book In the Thinking Zone was published in which he shares profound yet practical reflections on life. In 2010, his book 18 Stepping Stones was published through which he again gracious and generously shares concepts designed to enable the reader to recharge and realign his or her life. In 2011, his book On the Wings of Thought was published. Through this collection of his photographic works, Vijay provides visual settings that motivate viewers to observe and absorb silence, redirect cacophony toward lucraative productivity, and find anchoring reminders that propel one from states of comfort to positions of adventure worthy of sharing with our fellow man.
Let’s take a moment to see what makes Vijay tick and how it is that he’s managed to partner with time and accomplish so much, positively affect so many, and during relatively such little passage of time. Perhaps the first keys are those which revolve around his mastery of fear which is a natural phenomenon that all religions and philosophies regard. Vijay Eswarana encourages us to first redefine fear. He acknowledges the importance of fear in the realm of survival whether millions of years ago in the time of caves and leviathans, or today in the midst of losing sight of proper reef exploration boundaries. Yet, he states, it’s not only advisable to accept fear. It is mandatory to do so, and that on our own terms. When we do, we will find that fear was/is merely excitement in disguise. Once we’ve redefined the emotion rearing its head as fear, we embrace it. Run toward it. Eagerly investigate it to see what pearls we may uncover clamped inside of its elusively shut jaws. That is to say, we are to lean into fear as a child would. Naturally curious, for aren’t we more capable of managing the outcome than a child?
Vijay Eswaran encompasses his life application toward productive philosophy in this one phrase to live by: we are all just two minutes from the abysss. Therefore, live life with such apparent urgency, running over fear like a bulldozer toppling an abandoned mansion.
Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American businessman and philanthropist who is widely known for his pro-Jewish and pro-Israel political activism. Milstein is a contributor to a variety of political blogs and columns, and he frequently publishes blog pieces on the Israeli-American site Jewish News Syndicate (JNS.) On February 7th, he published a piece in the Israeli American Council column about Radical Islam’s efforts to promote worldwide anti-Semitism.
In both Europe and North America, Adam Milstein writes, radical Muslims are beginning to ally themselves with the radical left, an alliance that is as unlikely as it is threatening to the Jewish people. In theory, Milstein argues, this is an alliance that makes no sense: the radical left in Europe and North America are very socially liberal, while radical Islam is notorious for its misogyny, homophobia and human rights abuses. Yet these alliances continue to form, united by their intense dislike of Western global influence and their shared anti-Semitic tendencies.
The radical left, Milstein further argues, has a tendency to view Muslims as a single entity that is universally oppressed. This causes them to view even radical Islamists as victims, and Jews, who are in opposition to radical Islam in the Middle East, as oppressors. Radical Islam fuels these ideas in any way possible to promote Western anti-Semitism and advance their anti-Jewish agenda, which is why Milstein views these alliances as one of the greatest modern threats to Israel and to the Jewish people.
Adam Milstein is a co-founder of the prominent Israeli-American Council, of which he he was appointed Chairman of the Board in 2015. Milstein has made his career primarily as a real estate investor, but he has also spent considerable time on philanthropic efforts. In 2000, he and his wife, Gila, founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, which sponsors education for young Jewish students and professionals. He is also a board member of StandWithUs, Birthright Israel, the Hasbara fellowships and the Israel on Campus Coalition, among other organizations.
Adam Milstein served in the Israeli Defense Forces during the Yom Kippur War before graduating from Technion in Israel in 1978. He moved to the U.S. in 1981, and shortly after acquired an MBA from the University of Southern California. He has used his considerable business acumen to become a Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate firm based in California.
