Revolutionary Ideas in Healthcare Technology Result in More Customized Treatment Plans for Patients
Everything today is automated so why has it taken the healthcare industry longer than most? That’s all about to change with the introduction of Harry Glorikian’s ground-breaking new book that outlines the appropriate steps to take in order to provide a more tailored treatment plan for all patients instead of a one-size-fits-all. In MoneyBall Medicine: Thriving in the New Data-Driven Healthcare Market, the author includes interviews with numerous healthcare leaders and outlines the challenges and opportu-nities developing for those working in this critical and vibrant sector of the world’s economy. Glorikian outlines changes that are taking place and how they will impact everyone from patients to researchers and insurers, with predictions for the healthcare industry in the future. “If the difference between evolution and revolution is the speed of change, then healthcare is now in the mode of revolutionary change,” notes global business expert Harry Glorikian. He points to the uptick in electronic storage of medical records, convenient online patient portals, and innovative applications of data to help pinpoint outbreaks and expose drug-resistant diseases. We have entered a rapidly evolving era of medicine that values data-driven approaches and prioritizes evidence-based care, and the best is yet to come, Glorikian predicts. In his book, Glorikian (along with award-winning healthcare writer Malorye Allison Branca) shows through examples what a new data-driven healthcare system could look like when implemented on a global basis. The authors reveal where data and cutting-edge analytics are already advancing healthcare and creating new and evolving business opportunities. Data and technology are already impacting drug development, precision medicine, and how patients with rare diseases are diagnosed and treated. Digital devices and artificial intelligence are helping doctors do their jobs faster and with greater accuracy. The author makes a compelling case for embracing technology and the use of data to revolutionize the healthcare system for the greater good of patients and healthcare professionals alike. Author Harry Glorikian also hosts the MoneyBall Medicine™ Podcast, a series all about the data-driven transformation of the healthcare and life sciences landscape. An influential global business expert with more than three decades of experience building successful ventures in the U.S. and around the world, Glorikian is well known for his achievements in the life sciences, healthcare, diagnostics and healthcare IT industries. He is a sought-after speaker who has addressed the National Institutes of Health, Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference, World Theranostics Congress and other audiences worldwide. He has written numerous articles for industry publications, appeared on CBS Evening News, and has been quoted regularly by Dow Jones, The Boston Globe, BioWorld Today, Los Angeles Times, London Independent, Medical Device Daily, Science Magazine, Genetic Engineering News and many other media outlets.

EXTREME: Silicon Valley. High Stakes. Serious Gamers. Romantic Tension. It’s All In A Day’s Work.
This summer, award-winning author Joan Gelfand delivers a fast-paced, fun, and edgy summer beach read, entitled EXTREME (Blue Light Press/First World Publishing). Set in a high-risk gaming startup, peopled with world-class skateboarders and power-hungry executives, worlds collide when a Hollywood producer comes calling. Enter Hope Ellson, a talented, driven woman who has fought her way up in the tech industry. EXTREME follows the journey of a startup—an idea from a pair of skateboarders to build a site that can withstand a global audience, finally to crisis management. Featuring a dynamic pair of quirky founders, coding geniuses, fans, and hard-nosed deal makers, EXTREME is complicated by an app built on scrappy code, unresolved love affairs and the tension between authenticity and commercialism. When Silicon Valley CEOs and recruiters turn to the topic of “who’s innovating,” one name always comes up: Hope Ellson. What Hope and her partner (and ex-lover) Doug Wiser pulled off at Topia—one of the very first companies to break through from a geeky to a global audience—is the stuff of legend. For the past year, Hope has been collecting a fat paycheck at Manuserve. When Arthur McKnight, startup kingpin recruits her, Hope’s sure she landed her dream job: FearToShred. Before making a job offer, Arthur tells Hope how he discovered two rock star boarders—Jeff Price, whose star rose when a YouTube clip of his 18’ jump between two rooftops went viral, and Julie Tang, gold winner at the X Games—working on the FearToShred app when Jeff and Julie started sending out quirky challenges on Twitter: execute 360s and ollies under a full moon; catapult over a creek wearing neon ski goggles. Skaters, surfers and cyclists post videos of themselves shredding cool tricks. Now CEO Arthur envisions a future for FearToShred: a reality show on The Action Network, with Jeff, Julie and other extreme sports stars as judges. When Arthur confides his concerns to Hope that Jeff and Julie don’t have the chops to expand the site to satisfy The Action Network’s viewership, Hope recommends the best engineer for the job: Doug Wiser. Tracing the rapid transformation of a skater app into a real-time craze and a big-league company, EXTREME offers insight into how a startup grows and how it’s vulnerable to dying before its prime. The novel also draws readers into Hope’s battles as a woman in the testosterone-heavy tech world, aggravated by relentless pressure to meet ambitious goals, clashes of titans, and working closely with a man she used to sleep with. Yes, Doug’s married and Hope has a steady beau, but are their feelings really in the past? As Arthur moves closer to closing a mega deal with TAN, trouble hits. When a rogue challenge results in a tragic death, the site crashes. To keep its followers and investors, FearToShred needs to fix its glitches and prove its quirky challenges can be safely pulled off by anyone—even Hope, the company’s uber Product Manager who’s willing to take one for the team, but is FearToShred worth the risk of losing her life?

Influential lawyer and politico Stephanie Mickle to release memoir “Follow the Leader” this summer
Stephanie Mickle, Esq., CEO of Mickle Public Affairs, has inked a deal to write, along with co-writer Andre Orie, her forthcoming memoir, “Follow the Leader.” Debuting in the summer of 2018, the book will follow Mickle’s journey in the political arena as a woman of color and empowers women to understand and get involved in the political process. “The American political process was constructed without women,” Mickle offers. “Even though women have run for the highest office that exists, there is still a perception that we are not fully capable of, or too emotional to handle power. This simply isn't true. I would offer that we wait no longer to dispel this notion.” Highly successful in her career, Mickle was General Counsel to U.S. Senator Bill Nelson of Florida, is a noted political commentator on outlets including The Hill, Sirius XM Radio and One America News Network, and has been recognized for her contributions to the legal field, garnering the Black Women Lawyers Rock Award as well as being recognized by the Loop 21/Impact DC as one of the 40 Under 40 Most Influential in Capitol Hill. After serving in both the private and public sectors in the legal field, she founded Mickle Public Affairs Agency. With a client list that ranges from former US ambassadors, high-ranking officials, influential attorneys, and small businesses on the cusp of widespread success, Mickle has brought her unique talents in strategic communications, political consultancy, and crisis management to successfully manage the careers of the Washington’s elite. With a strong platform that not only includes her on-air appearances on radio and television, Mickle also hosts a Podcast series called “Wheat and Chaff’ in which she “cuts through the chatter and chaff to discover the wheat, what matters most” with politics and current affairs. A graduate of Smith College, the University of Florida, and Harvard University, Mickle continues to be an inspiration and positive influence in the political and legal community, particularly for women.
