Deirdre Baggot’s AdviceTo Entrepreneurs: Always Be The Hardest Working Person In The Room

Deirdre Baggot, Ph.D., MBA, BSB, and entrepreneur has received national recognition for her work regarding bundled payments within the medical field. She has written many papers on the subject of healthcare reform, payment transformation, and bundled payments. Deirdre Baggot has spoken at several medical conferences and had fulfilled important positions at The University of Michigan Health System and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Visit:

One piece of advice that Baggot has for all entrepreneurs is to be the hardest working person in the room. Also, when asked how she makes her day productive, she gives credit to learning to say no when it comes to things, like meetings, that really do not require her attention. She also loves having a detailed checklist. She assigns herself due dates to the items on her checklist. Baggot admits that her one big failure as an entrepreneur was that she over committed herself to reach a deadline. Her detailed lists help her to prioritize things that need to be done and to stay on task. Baggot believes that there is something very satisfying about crossing things off her checklist.

One trend in the health field that excites Deirdre Baggot is wearables. She is an advocate for anything that helps people to be proactive in their own healthcare. According to Baggot, medical errors are number three on the list of causes of death in America. In order for healthcare to be safer, people need to take charge of their own healthcare and wearables are a step in that direction.

If any entrepreneurs are looking for ideas, according to Baggot, healthcare is the place to be. Healthcare needs to be transformed. This will only happen when hard working people can bring good ideas to light.
