Tray Dunaways connection to the business
of medicine started when he was three years old and his mother read
him the Golden Book classic, Nurse Nancy. He, however, identified
with the doctor, but thought the band-aids that came free
with the book were too cool. When he later discovered drug sales reps
provided free penlights, he was hooked.
Today, M. Tray Dunaway, MD, FACS, CHCO connects the dots of healthcare
in the healthcare ecosystem we all encounter or work in at some point
in our lives. Connections between hospitals, patients, businesses of medicine,
payers, and a myriad of healthcare workers. Even irascible doctors. In
fact, he was an irascible doctor for sixteen years in a general surgical
practice in Camden, South Carolina.
As a dotsultant and professional speaker, he shows healthcare
people, businesses, and organizations how to improve their connectivity
with other dots of healthcare to improve profitability, enhance
their reputation, increase sales in more dimensions than just
financial gain, and to better serve patient needs.
His Documentation System has brought millions of dollars of increase revenue
to client physician practices and hospitals alike through more effective
E&M coding and DRG coding. His MVI model of Mutual Value Integration
works by improving communication, finding the chemistry to make business
solutions viable, and honoring the contribution of all the dots in healthcare.
Dr. Tray lives in South Carolina with his wife Jane and their three children
and travels around the country to collect little hotel bars of soap, shampoo
and conditioner bottles to donate and supply his favorite hospital home-away-from-home
patient family facility in Orlando Florida for weeks on end.
