A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words; An Infographic is Priceless

Shaun Pope, Director of Client Solutions – Tricycle Studios

Infographics have become popular over the last year or so.  Why? It’s the classic rule of two…

< The attention span is becoming shorter.

With the constant go-go-go of modern life, consumers have shorter attention spans. You have approximately 2-4 seconds to make your mark, or lose them forever. (PS: Are you still reading this?)

> The intake of information is exponentially greater.

With the world’s information currently doubling every two years*, your consumers are continuously experiencing information overload. With ever-growing access to smartphones and tablets, people are constantly receiving, analyzing, and sharing anything that pops in front of their face.

Infographics help consumers visually understand how to choose the product that is right for them. And they’re fun! Best of all, they can be developed for practically any business. Our friends at lululemon.com** designed an infographic to help make purchasing your perfect yoga mat completely stress-free.

The Agile Manifesto

Chris Lane, Studio Director – Tricycle Studios

Agile is a project management methodology that has been used by software development teams for years.  Recently it has been gaining interest in many other fields as a tool to help teams increase productivity and create constant improvement.

“So, how does this relate to me?” We thought you’d ask that.

If you change the word “software” to “solutions” in the manifesto below, you will see that it transforms to work across many disciplines. While Agile is not a one-stop solution, it is a way to look at things differently and achieve some of the goals that we are looking for in all businesses.

The Agile Manifesto simply says:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software [or solutions] by doing it and helping others do it.Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools;
Working software [or solutions] over comprehensive documentation;

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation;

Responding to change over following a plan.

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Would the Agile methodology work for your business? Our colleagues at LeaningAgile.com have discovered it can work for anyone, as long as the right conditions are in place. See what Mark Kilby has to say on the matter by clicking on the link below.






Another Change in Physician Pay Sneaking Up Fast

Amanda Patanow, Creative Director – Tricycle Studios


When Benjamin Disraeli uttered the quote “Change is inevitable.  Change is constant,” he must have been talking about physician pay. Over the past decade, physician compensation has changed more times than Katie Perry’s hair color – and it’s often been just as perplexing.  Most have recovered from the initial shock of Meaningful Use, PQRS and ePrescribing… just in time for Value Based Purchasing.

Since the success of your sales team depends on understanding the challenges and priorities of healthcare providers and administrators, we at Tricycle thought we’d offer this quick tutorial.

According to CMS, “The Value Modifier provides for differential payment to a physician or group of physicians under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule based upon the quality of care furnished compared to cost during a performance period.”


Here’s the breakdown:

  • Calculation of the Value Modifier will result in an upward, downward, or no payment adjustment based on performance.
  • Physicians who practice in groups with 100 providers or more will lose 1% of their Medicare payments starting in 2015 based on performance in 2013 if they do not meet performance standards.
  • Groups whose physicians participate as individuals under the PQRS must register as a group and elect the Administrative Claims reporting mechanism by October 15, 2013 in order to avoid the -1.0% downward Value Modifier payment adjustment.
  • Physicians in smaller groups will be impacted by the value modifier in 2017, but will see changes in PQRS reporting in the meantime.




太 Tricycle Dreams of Sushi! 巻

Our sushi master, Tina, lead an amazing Makizushi-making class at the studio today. You can find her process below – but she won’t give up her ancient recipe for spicy mayo, so don’t ask.


1. Carefully take a piece of nori (seaweed paper) and lay it flat onto your sushi mat.

2. Gently take a tennis ball sized amount of rice and begin working it onto the nori. BE EXTRA GENTLE when placing the rice and try not to leave wide gaps.

3. Leave about 1” of space at the top of the paper. Carefully sprinkle a few grains of rice into the open space. This will become the seal of your roll.

4. Choose what sushi ingredients you would like in your roll. Place them thinly in the middle of the roll. Try to keep the ingredients in a straight line.

5. Begin rolling the sushi, starting with the back of the nori and moving toward the center. As you roll, continue to press gently and firmly. Do not release the roll.

6. Press lightly on the completed roll into a form a log shape. (It helps if you imagine pressing down through the table.)

7. Cut the sushi once in half. Flip and line up the two halves of the sushi and slice the remaining pieces.

8. Garnish and eat!


Kampei (or “Cheers” – Enjoy!)
