M. Shane ForemanConnecting the Dots of Healthcare: Better Health Care through Mutuality
You won’t need caffeine to jolt you awake after this highly motivational and inspirational session. M. Tray Dunaway, MD, FACS, CSP, was a 16-year “every-other-night-on-call” surgeon in a small South Carolina town. Initially his frustrations with the “business of medicine” led him to develop a documentation system that resulted in millions of dollars in increased revenues for client hospitals and medical practices by streamlining physician documentation and coding. In the process of teaching documentation improvement he discovered the real secret of success wasn’t merely in teaching new skill sets, but rather improving relationships between what he now describes as “the dots of healthcare.”

Dr. Tray’s unique and entertaining perspectives on business facets of the modern healthcare ecosystem rival any nightclub act in town, including Vegas! Understanding healthcare has been weakened through fragmentation this surgeon turned “dotsultant” developed his concept of Mutual Value Integration to improve communication and chemistry with other “dots” and to acknowledge the contribution to patient care that everyone in healthcare make.

This award winning powerful physician speaker will share his secrets of success to connect in more meaningful, and profitable, ways with other “dots” with humor, honesty, and surprising insights from a physician’s perspective on the value of all the “dots of healthcare.” Don’t miss this presentation that has garnered rave reviews from healthcare audiences, leave you in stitches, and will touch your mind as well as your heart.

About the Speaker
M. Tray Dunaway, MD, FACS, CSP is a world class medical record delinquent and practiced as an every-other-night-on-call general surgical in Camden, SC, where he endured seventeen years of having his staff telling him, “stop talking to the patients and hurry up so we can go home,” finally figured out a way to actually get paid for speaking and now no longer has to get out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the OR. He is also an accomplished run-on-sentence writer.

Dr. Dunaway created a business solution for physicians, PA’s and nurse practitioners when he simplified and streamlined E&M coding, (now available as E&Minator in the Apple iTunes Store), and in the process of keeping clinicians out of compliance jail, discovered how to connect physicians, hospitals, patients, and all the “dots” of healthcare in more meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships. Did we mention the run-on-sentence tendency?

Dr. Dunaway has extensive hospital and healthcare industry speaking experience and has even written material for Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, and Conan O’Brien. Sadly, the envelopes were returned unopened. You can read all about the more serious side of Dr. Dunaway to your heart’s content at and he hopes you’ll connect with him on
