Letter to the editor: No whiny talk

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

I just finished reading the Medtrade Special Report section ("How can Medicare save money," HME News October 2011).

It was a great idea collecting stories and interviews that offer some poignant points of view throughout this section from true leaders in our industry. Sylvia Toscano's piece about controlling costs with technology really caught my attention. Her offering, as well as some of the others in the special section, really seemed to demonstrate exquisite industry leadership because the content was full of realistic solutions for both "us" (HME community) and "them" (CMS). There was no whiny, poor us, victimization talk. Just well thought out solutions and win-win ideas.

Kudos to HME News. Best edition ever in my opinion.
