Use the power of the visual to communicate with your audience

I get sent a lot of content, aimed at physicians, to potentially post on The Entrepreneurial MD Blog and most of it is irrelevant or way too cheesy for the likes of you, dear reader. Once in a while however, something piques my interest as it is thoughtful or provocative.

This time it’s an “infographic” (contemporary lingo for cool images that are designed to convey information quickly) that caught my eye.

The information is largely “duh” for most of my physician readers (although I found some of it interesting) but I offer it to you as a way to stimulate your thinking about the ways in which you could present complicated information to your colleagues, patients or clients.

I imagine it takes someone with an artistic sensibility to create the actual image – but it’s nothing that can’t be found as a design on or — the last time I used one of these services, I paid $50 to a smart fellow in India to create something a US national might have charged 4 or 5 times as much for.

Let’s see what you think of it.

How about that “doctors are overpaid” bit? Provocative!
