Clear Digital Media (CDM)—a creator of custom digital media and patient engagement systems for the healthcare industry—is thrilled to announce they have teamed up with Dr John Bakke as a contributing writer for its physician email engagement program, MDEmails.

Bakke practiced general internal medicine for 30 years before retiring from active practice to pursue a second career in healthcare consulting. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School and trained in internal medicine at the University of Chicago. After his training, he spent an additional year as a fellow in medicine at Harvard. He has practiced in both large and small medical groups in urban and rural settings. His organizational consulting work focuses on reimbursement trends in primary care and the integration of population health activities into practices and large delivery systems. He has a long-standing interest in hearing healthcare and has published several articles in The Hearing Review emphasizing the need for a closer partnership between audiology and primary care here  and here.

Bakke joins Bob Tysoe and Brian Taylor on the MDEmails contributor team. Together, the combined experience is an invaluable asset to CDM’s clients, according to the company.

“We are so excited to welcome Dr Bakke to the MDEmails family,” says Brad Dodson, vice-president of sales at Clear Digital Media. “We know his experience and expertise will be a great addition to the collection of materials we offer our clients through MDEmails.”

“There is growing recognition that hearing impairment needs to be more aggressively treated by primary care physicians,” Bakke said in an interview, adding, “the efforts by Clear Digital are a step in the right direction.”
