Episode 14: Michael Blackstone, MD of SutureSign

This week's So What, Who Care? episode brings us Michael Blackstone, MD.  Dr. Blackstone is CEO of SutureHealth, a well respected member of the Homecare and Physician Community, and an LSU fan.

Our discussion starts with how he left the business of practicing medicine to become an entrepreneur (see the article about him on our site:  ); moves into how his featured product, SutureSign, is fitting an enormous need in the market; then we have a quick detour into the world of Homecare & Hospice Marketing; and then get his take on LSU's upcoming football season (whilst I lament the pending doom and despair as an Auburn Tiger).

Michael is polished and well spoken, whereas I seem to say 'dad gum' alot.  Nevertheless, this is a great way to get to know a true up-and-comer in the Post-Acute and Physician Practice space.
