Let's Get Cheeky! Speed Dating in Boston | Singles Event

Inspired by a time when social clubs served as the mainstay for cocktails, conversation and community, Back Bay Social Club invites those with a craving for delicious food, a laid back vibe and good company to stop in and stay a while.

"In short, walking inside here is a little like leaving modern-day Boston behind and somehow landing in an episode of Mad Men, one where you, Roger Sterling and a couple of flight attendants cram into a plush blood-red booth decked with boxing posters and order a round of bourbons, neat." UrbanDaddy

"Now though, theres an upgrade: Speed Dating the sophisticated British way. All SpeedNY evenings are held at premier locations. The crowd? 'No riff-raff'. Gilt Luxury

"I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; SpeedLA events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by." LA Talk Radio.com

The only speed dating company that routinely screens it's clients for niceness and politeness. If we meet a dater we don't think you'll fancy meeting, we'll say 'No thank you' so you don't have to.

The Fundamentals of Data Analysis and Statistics for Healthcare Professionals

The Fundamentals of Data Analysis and Statistics for Healthcare Professionals

Many healthcare professionals have sat through basic statistics and analysis courses, but until recently only those in research, policy, epidemiology, and similar fields needed more than a passing knowledge of those topics.

In a new healthcare environment of value-based purchasing, evidence-based medicine, and quality and patient safety metrics (to name but a few), the bar has been raised. A nodding acquaintance with healthcare data analysis and statistics is no longer enough for success. In the current environment, we all need to better understand, analyze, and explain healthcare statistics and measurementand present what we know clearly, in plain language with easily understood examples.

In this compact, effective one-day workshop, you will learn about exploratory, confirmatory, and qualitative data analysis, and their use with the fundamental statistics healthcare professionals encounter every day.

The workshop will enable you to understand about how your data was developed; confer both the ability and the confidence to challenge it when necessary; and give you the skills to interpret it correctly and present it in a clear and compelling way.

Workshop (Full Day): Data Analysis and Statistics Fundamentals for Healthcare Professionals covers the following crucial aspects of these topics:

  • What is data analysis? What are exploratory, confirmatory and qualitative types of analysis?
  • What are the 13 traits of really great data analysts, and how can we develop and nurture them?
  • Is there really a difference between data science and statistics? Does that difference matter?
  • How can you develop appreciative inquiry skills to most successfully understand what your customer needs?
  • What are the nine most important characteristics of meaningful data?
  • What are the attributes of administrative vs. clinical data?
  • How do we understand the lineage, intent, and purpose of healthcare data (and its current limitations)?
  • How do we best understand and report the most frequently used statistics in healthcare reporting? How can we ?select the right statistics for our analysis?
  • How do we understand the importance of risk-adjustment, and how does that affect reimbursement, clinical ?decisions, patient satisfaction, and so on?
  • How do we overcome the Curse of Knowledgeand use plain language to analyze and report, instead of ?confusing ourselves and our listeners with healthcare tech- and stat-speak?


Take Away: All participants will receive:

  • The Best Boring Book of Select Healthcare Classification Systems and Databases, by: Katherine S. Rowell & Ann Cutrell

If youre in an ecommerce business then you shouldnt rely on Amazon. But if your ecommerce business is funding your lifestyle, and you dont want to change the world, then Amazon could possibly work. This distinction is important: Its essentially asking this critical question about your business, Who do you want to be when you grow up? If your ambition is large, then Amazon is not for you. However, if you merely want to make enough money to pay the bills each month, then it could be good. Please understand that youre hitching a ride on the back of a very strong 900-pound gorilla. http://cacaopow.myxocaidiet.com/ , http://cacaopow.myxocaienergy.com/ , http://cacaopow.myxocai.co.uk/ Xocai (AKA: MXI Corp) is a high antioxidant, healthy, dark chocolate based Network Marketing company.

It strives to offer the widest selection, at best price, and with the easiest repeat shopping experience. Other merchants fit into this strategy only so far as they help Amazon to offer a wider selection of products. Every customer on Amazon registers; you cant buy without first registering. Amazon views the merchant as an affiliate a source of new customers based on products. Having captured the customer, Amazons model is to drive repeat sales, and it will relentlessly sell the whole range of its products, not yours. Recognizing there are valid reasons to sell on Amazon, here are the three reasons that you should not sell there. If you use Fulfillment by Amazon Amazon does the shipping you know nothing about the customer. All you see is the revenue. They own the data and the customer relationship. Brand. Profitability in ecommerce is in repeat purchases and selling more than one product to customers. When you sell on Amazon, you tap into a potential source of traffic, but your brand disappears. Traffic isnt coming to your site. You have no opportunity to upsell; that opportunity is Amazons. www.ImAdamGreen.com, www.Facebook.com/AdamPaulGreen
