Plain and simple. End of story.As we launch Season 3 of this episode series, I am both honored and humbled to bring you this inspiring journey.In Reversed: A Memoir, Lois Letchford describes the powerful journey of how the education system failed her son, Nicholas, saying he'd never learn to read and had no strengths.

Learn how one mother's amazing fight and determination to save her child (and herself) from the labels, judgment and challenges of dyslexia.

Today I am very excited to introduce you to Wiam Hasanain. Wiam is a seasoned social impact consultant, with 20 years of experience operating at the intersection of policy reform, societal development, behavior change, and civic engagement. She is a problem solver, utilizing data-driven insights to create practical approaches to resolving pressing social challenges on a range of projects and industries. She built her foundation at Unilever, and over the last decade, she has spearheaded nationwide programs in the areas of unemployment, health, financial literacy, sports, and career planning. She has established the structure and strategy for nudge units, set their national agendas, and designed behavioral interventions to serve public policy. After consulting with Bain and Company Middle East she moved onto a senior role in her native Saudi Arabia; leading the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) function at a Mckinsey subsidiary and creating nationwide community programs. From there, she spent a decade as a partner at the foremost boutique consultancies in the GCC, leading social impact and behavior change efforts. Her passion is advising on behaviorally informed policies across sectors. Wiam believes strongly in spreading knowledge about the implementation of behavioral change across industries and has published a variety of articles on the practical application of behavioral science and has an MBA from UC Berkeley as well as a master's from the London School of Economics and Political Science. In continuing to have a more global view of the representation here on The Brainy Business, Wiam is our first guest from Saudi Arabia. I'm excited to share some of her work with you on a specific CSR project on the show today. Show Notes: [00:40] Today I am very excited to introduce you to Wiam Hasanain. Wiam is a seasoned social impact consultant, with 20 years of experience operating at the intersection of policy reform, societal development, behavior change, and civic engagement. [01:58] Her passion is advising on behaviorally informed policies across sectors. [04:27] Wiam shares about herself, her background, and how she found herself in this space. [07:30] She is from Saudi Arabia and has spent the majority of her life there. [08:16] She worked with a client on a corporate responsibility program that focused on helping the youth in Saudi Arabia find their career path. [10:41] They agreed that they could help open the youths' eyes to other careers that were out there as opposed to the traditional STEM careers. [12:04] Their project was such a success that it ran for three years in a row and kept growing each year. [14:29] It is really nice for her to see how the social norm has changed and know that they were part of this change. [16:31] The parents along with the career counselors had to work together to really help the students bridge the intention to action gap. It was also important for the parents to see that these other jobs were acceptable as well. [18:20] The parents had a different hang-up than the youth. (Know all your audiences and plan accordingly!) [19:55] Wiam shares how they reduced sludge and friction in their project and made things easier. [21:41] They had over double-digit changes in their perceptions of certain careers. The short-term response was very promising. [22:27] An RCT is a randomized control trial. [24:03] You are always adding sludge and removing sludge in various ways. [24:54] Wiam shares how they added some sludge to help with the problem they were trying to solve. They made it difficult for students to leave without going through all the exhibits (to help increase exposure to careers that wouldn't have been a focus previously). [26:57] They utilized augmented reality in some of the exhibits so that would be where the majority of the students were drawn (and these were typically for the non-traditional careers to broaden horizons). The most desired careers were also at the end, so you had to have some exposure to the other careers no matter what. [28:08] There are times when customer experience, behavioral science, and corporate responsibility all come together so be more concerned with your end objective. [30:18] Whether you think about it or not you are influencing the decisions that people make with the way you put the booths in the space even – so you should definitely think about it! [31:43] Don't think anything is too small to be considered a small step towards behavioral change. Be thoughtful and intentional. [32:52] Melina's three tips for setting up your own experiment are to keep it small, be thoughtful, and test often. [34:29] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [35:41] My upcoming book, What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You, is now on presale and will be in a bookstore near you on October 11, 2022.

Jay Van Bavel is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at New York University. Prior to joining NYU, Jay completed his PhD at the University of Toronto and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Ohio State University. From neurons to social networks, Jay's research examines how collective concerns of identities, moral values, and political beliefs shape the mind, brain, and behavior. His work addresses issues of group identity, social motivation, cooperation, moral judgment, decision making, and social media. He's a researcher at his core who's highly curious, looking up the newest and best ways to gather great science and great data and great information. He's published over 100 academic publications and co-authors a mentoring column. His work has appeared in academic papers in the US Supreme Court and the Senate. His research has been featured in a TedTalk, a TedEd, and a TedX. He's consulted with the White House, United Nations, European Union, and the World Health Organization on issues related to his research. Jay had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “We have an enormous amount of resilience, more than we would have expected” (11:20). “90% of success is just showing up. You show up and you do your best even if it's not your best day” (12:45). “We're highly attuned to the social norms of any group we're in” (15:00). “People want to feel like the identities they have are positive and distinct from other groups” (16:45). “We want to signal to ourselves and others that we're part of valued identities” (18:15). “If people reduce their social media use by 1 hour a day, they're much happier” (20:35). “Most every human has a need for affiliation” (24:15). “We can identify with groups of people we've never even met” (25:00). “People misrepresent themselves on social media” (28:40). “People are tuned to whatever type of value generates engagement on different [social media] platforms” (29:15). “The more you identify with a group, the more you want to start to embody the norms of the group” (31:55). “If you're in a group, you should be carefully thinking about what the norms are” (33:30). “You can nudge and influence other people by changing your own behavior” (33:35). “The most powerful form of identity that makes people feel fulfilled but also inclusive is what's called the dual-identity model: When you feel part of something bigger than yourself, but you are still able to sustain and feel that your other identities are valued” (36:50). “We're wired to be group-ish” (39:40). “The groups we belong to don't necessarily need to discriminate” (40:35). “One of the key predictors of cooperation is that you both benefit if it's good” (45:45). “I frame my criticisms as questions” (47:30). “Organizations who add talent but don't think about how groups will gel often times aren't any more successful” (50:45). “Even though polarization has gotten really bad, people still vastly overestimate it” (56:30). “40-50% of our political ideologies is biological” (1:04:30). “We all contain multitudes of identities” (1:10:00). “Whatever situation we're in activates an identity, and with it comes a way of seeing the world” (1:10:25).

Hear how to harness your inner CEO and prioritize your happiness Are you the CEO of your life? What does that mean? In this podcast, I bring to you Becca Powers Vaughn. Her story, like those of so many women, is in part about discovering your own self-worth, in part realizing that you should not let others define who you are, and in part turning your purpose into something to benefit others. But this podcast is not just for women. Men, listen carefully. Becca's message is as relevant for you as it is for women. Why? So you can help women thrive in your personal and your professional life. A wise woman with a lot to teach us. Watch and listen to our conversation here Much to learn from Becca's “aha” moment She says it was not a very pretty moment, but one in which she had to stop the “blame and complain” game. If you are doing something like Becca was doing—blaming others for your limits or your difficulties—it is a good time to listen to this podcast and discover yourself. Becca also has a great book you should dig into: Harness Your Inner CEO: Rise Into Passion, Prosperity, and Empowerment. Three things that help empower women to become the best they can be: Look in the mirror and tell your mind that you are a beautiful woman. Your mind does exactly what it thinks you want it to do. So, what do you want it to do? I am serious. What do you want to feel, see and think so you can serve yourself? Your story is what holds you back, until you craft a story that opens doors for you. It is a good time to rethink you. How to get in touch with Becca Contact her via LinkedIn, Twitter, her website www.beccapowers.com or email her at Beccapowers1313@gmail.com.

The Time is Right to Rethink Your Journey Additional resources for you My award-winning second book: Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business My award-winning first book: On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights Simon Associates Management Consultants Read the transcript of our podcast here Andi Simon: Good morning. Welcome to On the Brink With Andi Simon. Hi, I'm Andi Simon, your host and your guide. And remember, my job is to get you off the brink. I don't want you stuck there, nobody's going to be stalled. What we need to do is help you. And I say these words very intentionally to help you see, feel and think in new ways so that you can change. And you know, your brain hates change. Sometimes it hates me for telling you you should change. But you also know that things aren't always exactly the way you want them to be but somehow the habits take over and your mind does exactly what it thinks you want it to do. Now we've got to change. So I have today a wonderful woman, Becca Powers Vaughn, and you're going to love listening to Becca's story. I have a hunch it may reflect many of our own stories. And then we're going to talk about things that matter to all of us, like how we change our balance and our work life? How do we really find success? What does that mean? Remember, we're meaning makers. Humans don't have any intrinsic value, so what is success? Are you there? Are you going? Is it a journey? Becca, thank you for joining me today. Becca Powers Vaughn: Yes, thank you for having me. Andi Simon: Tell the listener who is Becca, what's your journey, and then we'll talk about your book. Her book is Harness Your Inner CEO: Rise Into Passion, Prosperity, and Empowerment. We'll talk a little bit about that. But so many other things that she's learned as she's been on this journey. So, who is Becca? Becca Powers Vaughn: So I will introduce myself in the form of a story because I think that it'll help the listeners get a really good idea of where we're going to go with this conversation as well. A little bit about me. So my story starts on the bathroom floor, as far as wanting to help other women. And I'm going to explain that more in just a second. So I'm a 20-year career tech sales executive. I've worked for companies like Cisco, Dell and others. And in the course of my journey, I have sacrificed a lot. I am a mother of four. I have an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old and then an 18- and 20-year-old stepson and stepdaughter. My husband and I have raised a blended family for 12 years. In the pursuit of it all, I didn't have much work-life balance in some of those days. But I remember back in 2013, I was a regional sales manager for Dell. And as a leader, and you might relate to this Andi, hearing your podcast...I've listened to quite a few. But I have a firm belief that people need to come before profits. And while I was a sales leader at Dell, I got recruited by a company that had a very similar philosophy. And I wanted to jump at that opportunity. So I left Dell and in the process of resigning, my VP of sales at the time heard me say all this and said, instead of rejecting me or accepting me, he's like, "Becca, you are the CEO of your life and I'm so proud of you." Right, yeah. So at that moment, I was very empowered. I went into this new career and what ended up happening in this new new career is that I wasn't an exact fit. My leadership style was very different. And what I found out is that in not being fully accepted, because my style was different, instead of coming to terms with that myself, and questioning whether this is a fit for me or not, I stayed committed to this belief. And in doing so, even though it was noble and I think a lot of listeners can maybe relate to this, even though it was a noble cause before profits, what I was really doing was sacrificing my well-being in pursuit of this big thing that I thought was super important. And after three years of doing that, I ended up overextending myself, way too much to the point of extreme exhaustion. And at that point of extreme exhaustion, it was one night after a really bad day at work again, three years into this role, I put the kids to bed, doing all the things. I go to take my makeup off, and I fell to the floor with fatigue. And I always say, it was in my most powerless moment that I came in touch with my power. Andi Simon: You sound like Arianna Huffington, who discovered that self care isn't the afterthought. It has to be tough though, and I am laughing out loud because I remember trying to get my tenure and developing pneumonia so bad that it took me six months to get my health back. Why do we do this to ourselves? What did you discover? Becca Powers Vaughn: Well, I discovered that, and I have the goosebumps as you say that because this is exactly what I showed up to talk about. And I'm so glad there's a relationship going on. Because I think the reason that we do that is because we care, especially as women, we're very servant-based. We are used to taking care of multiple things. And so it's very natural for us to almost abandon ourselves in the pursuit of the things that we think are important to us. And I think that is a really important part of the message, because we beat ourselves up a lot as women. And it's like, Oh, how could I have done that? Or how can I not have seen that? And really, at the end of the day, how did I get on the bathroom floor? I got here because I cared? Yes, not because I didn't care. Andi Simon: I'm curious about when you got off the bathroom floor, which you clearly did, did you have that epiphany that said, Enough, I'm going someplace else, or did you push on and do it better, or changed within your life-work balance, or what was your epiphany? Becca Powers Vaughn: So my epiphany on the bathroom floor is going to tie into the beginning of the story when my VP told me I was the CEO of my life. I'm sitting there on the bathroom floor crying, in a state of powerlessness and brokenness. And then all of a sudden, I remember giving an exhale, like as if I was praying or calling out for help, I don't know, like, I can't power through another day. I just remember thinking this to my head, like, I don't know what to do. I'm feeling powerless. I don't know what to do. And all of a sudden, I call it my instant miracle, that conversation came back to my forefront. And I remember, it was almost like a whisper: "Becca, you are the CEO of your life." And I started giggling actually. I'm like, on the bathroom floor. And this moment of being a complete mess. And my emotions were telling me. It's okay to laugh. I started laughing at myself. And I'm like, Well, if I'm the CEO of my life, I shouldn't be crying on the bathroom floor. I have a lot more power than I think I do. So I rose off the bathroom floor a different woman than the one that went down. And that's how I came up with the title of the book, Harness Your Inner CEO, because it was about harnessing that energy. I'm the CEO of my life. I've got to look at my finances, I've got to look at my spiritual self. I've got to look at my emotional self, mental self, my physical self, and I'm responsible for it all. Andi Simon: So let me clarify, I didn't hear the title til you just said it. It's harnessing. I like that. Take charge because now you can begin to visualize, and we're visualizers, what it is that you have learned. But you want others to see that we're going to take charge of our total being, not a little, a whole thing. Please continue. Becca Powers Vaughn: That gave me the goosebumps again. I love this conversation. So yes. So then I was going to tie back into both the things we talked about: success without sacrifice and work-life balance. What I realized about work-life balance is, it really wasn't obtainable in the way that it was being fed to me by the media, and social and work environments and things along those lines. And then there was a way that I could go about success. It was more of a question, but I knew it was possible. And like, is there a way to go about chasing my success? Because there's a lot of things I love about my career, actually. But can I chase success without sacrifice? And so those became two themes that I really explored and got it out within myself. Andi Simon: And in the process, did you go on a journey? I'm asking because in my book, Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business, several of the women went off on journeys at that catalytic moment when what they were doing wasn't good. But what they wanted to do wasn't clear. And those journeys, whether they took them through Africa or Europe or wherever with a backpack, or taking time to think and wonder. What did you find? Becca Powers Vaughn: Yes, so I did go on a journey. So my journey was about two years long, but what I think is unique about my journey is, I stayed exactly in my life. I was a mom and my kids were in middle school at the time. I didn't have time to go on sabbaticals or anything like that. But I realized I could go on a sabbatical within myself. And that's exactly what I did. So I did start evaluating whether that job was a fit or not. And as I started asking myself questions and understanding, I think one practical tip I can give listeners is that our bodies are going to tell us what's a fit. When things feel good, we feel relaxed, we feel butterflies, we get excited. When things aren't a fit, and we're still questioning, maybe it is, maybe it isn't, we're using logic to make it okay, our bodies will tell us. I've got a pain in my shoulder. I'm having headaches every night. And once I realized that those signs from my body were really symptoms of things not being a fit, I just kept exploring things that made me feel better. And I ended up in a new job a few months later. The one part I want to share before we pause and go back into conversation is that for me, I had to leave my own way. And what I mean by that is, I technically demoted myself. I went back to outside sales, to some sales professional. And in that, in that one move, I increased my income. I started having success without sacrifice. I found what work-life balance was for me. I was able to put down my phones and emails and dedications by 5:30. I ended up getting a sales territory for the Florida Keys because I'm in South Florida, and I had to drive down to the keys every three weeks. And now I had water on both sides of me with dolphins jumping in the water. Andi Simon: Your visual is so powerful because I truly believe there's a path through life, a little serendipity, but a lot of self-awareness, to your point. We decide with the heart and the eyes, not the head. And so if the audience hears about what you do, and how you do it, and it doesn't feel good every morning, you wake up without a smile on your face, you're on the wrong path. And you can stay on that line and keep pushing it. And Becca could tell you she could have, but there's something in your physical, emotional, human, being. You know how they talk about the gut. There really is a gut that's connected to what you're doing. Did you go searching for that? Or a job? Or did it find you? Becca Powers Vaughn: Thank you for asking that question because I get again the goosebumps. It is a very powerful thing when we finally stop powering through. Maybe it's surrender. That word was always kind of a complicated concept for me to fully grasp. But I do know that that's what happened in my moment on the bathroom floor the next day. And that's like, I have a saying: Admit when things are wrong or just admit when things aren't going right. The next morning, I called one of my work best friends. I was like, Jessie, I just need to tell you that this isn't working. And I ended up on the bathroom floor last night, but I'm empowered today. And the next thing I know, within four hours, she calls me with a job lead to the company I ended up leaving for. And so yes, it just fell into my lap within hours, within 24 hours. Andi Simon: But are we different from the rest of the world? Or are we just paying attention to it differently? I'm convinced that serendipity is one of your best resources. And sometimes you don't really know why something has happened, but you do know that something is happening. And if you can pause for a moment, and you have your house, you have your family, you know you have your husband, you have all these things going right, what's wrong? You want to say something? Becca Powers Vaughn: I'm nodding my head just because it was the pause. As women, I think we power through life as well. Women, I think one of our superpowers is our resilience and our ability to even set powerful intentions for ourselves, even though we can be going through hell. And just like the next day is, I got this, I'm going to show up as my best self. And it was in doing that too many times that I actually got stuck. And it was that power of the pause that allowed me to reevaluate everything. Andi Simon: It is interesting because we don't know where we're going but we do know as women who are aspirational, and career-minded, whatever that means. We could never be simply a stay-at-home mom. I had two daughters. They were 14 months apart. And three weeks after each of them, I was back in the classroom. I mean, that wasn't the way one should do it. But we are very intentional in some ways but not reflective in others. And I got my tenure. And I've been the EVP of a bank and I've been successful in my business for 20 years. But along the way, there have been aha moments like you have. For our listeners, think carefully about the aha moment the pandemic has offered you. I often preach: Never waste a crisis. This is not one that I would have ever anticipated or encouraged to find us, but don't waste it. Because if nothing else, on your bathroom floor, you have a moment now to really rethink the things that you're doing and how you're doing them. I'm seeing the Great Resignation, which is because people are back to work, and they're fine, but they just moved around in jobs. They also were catalysts for employers. You said, People before profits. What happened is the employees said, Us before you. Maybe there's a message here? So as you're moving along your own journey, where are you now? Where are you going? Becca Powers Vaughn: So that's an interesting question, because definitely life has unfolded. For me, in the most beautiful, magical, and to your point, unexpected ways. So after my two year journey of reestablishing what was important to me, reprioritizing, my career took off. In my highest position, I was an Operational Sales Director with 110 people under me and a $500 million annual number. What I realized is that it wasn't defining success. For me, success meant, I did like making money, but I also liked making an impact. And so I started finding roles that I felt I was able to deliver that impact, and they varied and the title. I realized that title was more something that fulfilled my ego rather than fulfilled my satisfaction. So I started chasing fulfillment and impact. As a result, I started making more money. As a result of feeling like I'm making an impact, and feeling more fulfilled, I started having what we want to call work-life balance. I had more passion in me. So even though I think I was working about the same hours, probably 40 to 50 hours a week, what I found is that my work changed. I started doing podcasts. I set times to make time to write a book. People are like, How do you write a book? You work full time, you've got kids, you got all this? Yeah, it mattered. And it happened. And it happened with ease. And it was quite delightful, actually. So where am I now? I am going back to Cisco. I was with Cisco for two years. And they recently recruited me back and I'm happily going back. I loved working there. Going as a Strategic Sales Lead and Solution Evangelist, which puts me in that place of impact and fulfillment. I'm sitting down to write my second book. I am starting my own podcast soon. And I'm vacationing and enjoying my life and just kind of able to have more without doing so much. It's a weird place to be. Andi Simon: But on the other side, nobody could tell you that. And while I do a lot of executive coaching, at the end of the day, we ask more questions, and we need help. Because if you can find the solution yourself, it's not a good solution. And if you're trying to do something someone else said we should do and imagining what those words mean, that means you have to be reflective, intentional, and willing to make a detour. Because we're on a journey or pathway, a ChangeMap. Sometimes the detours come up and you don't really know why they're there. But it's okay to make a left turn to try, or a right turn to see what's over there and taste. As you're looking at your next book and the current book, what have you discovered that you can help the listener learn from, or are there some illustrations that you want them to remember? People remember stories. Is there a story other than you being on the bathroom floor, which is a great story. And the things you're thinking about next, some stories to share? Becca Powers Vaughn: Well, one of the things is because I've been a corporate gal for 20 years, I really wanted to impact and explore burnout, but more so because that's really what happened. I ended up burnt out on the bathroom floor. So being an excavation artist and explorer, I wanted to understand what got me there. And I'm also a life coach. I had a Kundalini teacher so I've got some more hands. I do this and it's wanting to really kind of understand what's causing the Great Resignation. Why are people fed up? What's going on and all of that? So as I started serving people, this is a very interesting thing. I was like, Okay, what I understand about life coaching is that we overcompensate when we're trying to hide something. And so what is happening on an employee level that's causing this feeling of complete exhaustion? And what I came to understand is that I call it the unders in the overs, an employee first and they might not even be able to put their finger on it, but they're going to feel these unders. This means that somewhere in the organization, they are feeling undervalued, underappreciated, underpaid, underrecognized. Think feelings like that. And when these feelings go unaddressed, it starts triggering our deepest wounds, which is, I don't matter, I'm not safe, I'm not worthy, I'm not valuable. And when those feelings are triggered, we go into overcompensation, which in a work environment looks like overextending, overcommitting, overworking, overstressing and overwhelming. Those types of things. So that's really where I want to help people understand where this is coming from, because helping the individual understand it is really important. But I also want to help corporations understand it. I have been at Fortune 500s almost my entire career and I can say that they care. They just don't know how to do things. And so they're offering yoga classes and things that are very surface. But at the end of the day, if they knew their employees didn't feel valuable, they could do something to make them feel more valuable. So I know that was a longer answer, but I really geeked out on that day. Andi Simon: But let's dig into that. Because if only they could actually make you feel like you mattered is what you said. And all of the tactical-practical surface stuff is there. It's always fascinating to me because the HR person works really hard to get that yoga class and nobody comes, or the Weight Watchers to arrive. And you know, "I thought that's what people wanted to do was lose weight." So their solution had nothing to do with the person's actual behavior. The disconnect in HR is fascinating. But having said that, the company itself is the problem, not the human resource person. And the company doesn't understand that unless you spend time getting to know them, and show them that it matters that you're working here as an employee. That conversation is essential, not after the fact that you're ready to leave. You know, we work really hard on exit strategy and exit conversations. Why don't we do retention? Why don't we learn more about what your career is about? It's interesting. I've been working with an accounting firm for five years now. And one of the suggestions I made after one of our leadership training sessions was, Have you had one-on-ones with these very important people? And the partner said, No. I said, Well do it. They want to be loved. That it isn't that they are making good money, they're not money motivated a bit. But at the end of the day, they work really, really hard during the tax season. And they don't need a party, they need someone to say thank you. They need someone to simply say, You really do matter to us, what matters to you, and how do I help you? Sometimes they hear and sometimes they don't. Sometimes it resonates, and sometimes it doesn't. But unless you reach out, you have vulnerability there because people will find another place. They'll begin to think that all work is simply tactical and practical, and I never matter. And then I'll just hop around. What do you think? Becca Powers Vaughn: I think you're really onto something as far as how you're understanding what's going on. I would say that even from a survey perspective, I've surveyed about 1000 people right now, and 88% feel undervalued, underappreciated. I set it so you had to have some combination, but at least to hit the 88% score. I had said it so that you have to at least get to know. And that means 88% of the workforce is experiencing at least two unders. Andi Simon: My last thought is that people are living their emotions. And so if we stay on the tactical, practical, logical side, you're missing what matters to them. And humans want to hug. I mean, at the end of the day, they want to belong. They want to feel well. And the thing that you found was, I want to be harnessing my own interest. Do they want to be in charge? They want to feel they have some control, and that all of this has come out of the pandemic. Big time. I'm not sure of the message, I must confess, I work with too many CEOs of marketing companies and the guys don't quite get it. They're trying to figure it out. And I say that, because mostly guys are guys, but they don't quite understand that it isn't a position to hold. It's a life to live. And those are very different feelings. We're almost approaching the end of our wonderful time together. And you've enjoyed yourself, I know I have as well. A couple of things you don't want the audience to forget, because they often remember the ending better than the beginning. But your story is great. Becca Powers Vaughn: So coming right off of our conversation is, You matter. Number one, you matter. Number two, it's okay to prioritize yourself, especially as a woman. Consider yourself at least as much as you're considering other people, places and things. Those are two, do you want three? Andi Simon: No, I'll add your third. And then yeah, I will expand your third. We had a program on self care. And it's not going right now but I'll bring it back. It's a 30-day challenge to take care of you. And it's an app, and I love the app. I just can't do it right this second. But I'm going to be bringing it back about when your podcast goes live. But I find that people feel guilty about taking care of themselves. And the other thing I learned is that the guys who sign on, sign off, but the women stay in and want to keep it going. So something is going on in this world of being a woman where it feels guilty to take care of yourself. You're the last on the to-do list. You don't work out because there's no time. And so we flip it around. So the first thing you're going to do in the morning is, for you, what is that going to be? Take a walk, now sit quietly on the deck and have a cup of coffee. Take that time, it's okay. And the research is fascinating. You know, women CEOs of lots of companies say to me, Because I don't take care of myself, the stress levels rise. I said, Well, you know when you take care of yourself, the stress levels from the oxytocin and serotonin rise and cortisol drops. Your brain is telling you something. To your point, it hurts when you're not happy. Where can our listeners find your book? Becca Powers Vaughn: You can find it on Amazon and just type in the Amazon search Harness Your Inner CEO and it will come right up. And it's under Becca Powers. Andi Simon: We'll have that all in our podcast blog. I'm going to say goodbye to our great listeners and to Becca because we've had such a great conversation. My hunch is we'll be back and do this again when our next books come out. That's going to be a catalytic moment for her to get the next book done and my next book is going to come out. So we will all be on, talking about our books. My book is going to be about 100 Women who are trailblazers, transforming the world for women. And I do think this is a time for women to seize the moment and not waste a pandemic crisis because it's our time to lead. Now, with that in mind, thank you all for coming. You know, you've launched us into the top 5% of podcasts globally. I'm honored! I will tell you it's a pleasure. As you discovered, I love doing podcasts and sharing them. And the only thing I will advertise on here is us. We are corporate anthropologists and we help companies and the people inside them change. And often you don't want to change so my job is to help you love change. Make it your friend. And you can, because as you listen to Becca, you don't want to be on the bathroom floor wondering what am I doing with my life? So how do you see, feel and think in new ways? And as far as coaches, Becca is a life coach. I'm an executive coach, but we both try and help you see things through a fresh lens. My books,On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights and Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business, are both on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and booksellers everywhere. AndRethink just won an award from Axiom as a 2022 Bronze Best Business Book in the women and business category, so thank you. It's really an honor and a privilege to have both of my books be award winners, which means I'm an award winner. I don't think I write to be an award winner, I write to help people see, feel and think in new ways. Reach me at info@Andisimon.com and come along for the ride. Let's have a good journey together. It's been such fun. Goodbye.

Today I am very excited to introduce you to David McRaney, you may have heard of his first book You Are Not So Smart which is an international bestseller that is now available in 17 languages. He went on to create an awesome podcast of the same name and wrote a second book You Are Now Less Dumb. I highly recommend both of those and his podcast…and today we are talking about his new book, which just came out this week, called How Minds Change. As you will hear us talk about in the interview, this book is a fascinating journey we take along with David as he seeks to answer the question, "How do minds change?" The book is filled with interesting stories, lots of science, and fun anecdotes. I really enjoyed it and learned so much along the way, some of which you can hear about in today's episode. Join us to hear all about it! Show Notes: [00:43] Today I am very excited to introduce you to David McRaney. You may have heard of his first book You Are Not So Smart which is an international bestseller that is now available in 17 languages. He has a phenomenal podcast of the same name. [03:35] David shares about himself, his background, and how he found himself in this space. [05:30] When his second book came out, he started a podcast. His podcast has been the centerpiece of his world for the last twelve years. [07:55] David found something that he was interested in and wanted to find the answer to and he started to dig. [09:01] Don't jump into anything because you are trying to get rich quickly or because it is the hot new thing. [10:27] Don't follow the trends. Take the content you are skilled at and marry it to the thing you are obsessed with. Then plug away at it. [13:39] Everything that you do builds a skill set that you can laterally apply to other stuff later. [15:56] He writes his books by taking the reader along with him on the journey so they are able to learn with him. [16:40] David shares about the cookie segment that he had on his podcast for 100 episodes. He and Melina bond over baking and business. [19:41] He started the cookie segment because of several cookie studies he read and he knew there was a way to put it into his show. [22:26] He has gotten access to many different people in interviews for the book, podcast, and other work – how can you do the same? [24:27] You can email anyone and at least they will tell you no, but 75% of the time people say yes. [25:34] He explains in his emails that he is reaching out because he needs them and it would be a better show/book/project if they are part of it. [27:33] When people realize that you genuinely care and are interested they are more likely to say yes. [28:13] One of the biggest parts of How Minds Change is the exploration of “The Dress” and the neuroscience behind it. [30:37] Reaching out to his connections often led to other connections and allowed him to create even more connections. [33:14] He shares about “The Dress.” The dress is an image that appeared on the internet where people could not agree on what they saw. [35:23] With the dress, truly you saw it either one color (black and blue) or the other (white and gold) and you couldn't see it any other way. [37:32] When we see something that is overexposed we have no choice, the brain lowers the overexposure a bit to try to help us see what the image actually is. [39:43] Everything you experience is only happening in your brain. Every color you see is an illusion. Colors are things the brain makes. [42:23] There are two humongous populations of human beings that have had different life experiences, and because of those different life experiences they disambiguate an ambiguous image with a different kind of disambiguation than the other side and this leads to different conclusions. [43:57] When we try to prove that we are right, we miss out on getting to the deeper truth of the matter. [45:04] Pascal's team recreated the dress image using Crocs. They used Crocs and paired them with socks because it was an inanimate object with no default color. [46:49] It seems like older people see white socks version because they have more experience in their lives with socks that weren't colored. [48:28] David shares about his new book, How Minds Change. [51:41] His book is an explanation of how people do and do not change their minds, understanding the nature of the resistance, and discovering what you have to do to overcome that resistance. [54:54] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [55:55] One of my favorite things that David said in our conversation was that you need to "listen your way into changing somebody's mind" -- it isn't about force or proving someone that they are wrong, there is so much interesting work showcased in the book about how people can actually change their own minds when they are asked the right thoughtful questions and someone takes the time to listen. [57:18] If you enjoy the experience I've provided here for you, will you share about it? That could mean leaving a rating/review or sharing the episode with a friend (or 10!) Thanks for listening.

Sam Walker is the author of The Captain Class, a profile of the captains of the 17 greatest dynasties in sports history. He is a columnist, keynote speaker and teambuilding consultant for corporations, military units, nonprofits and professional and Olympic sports teams. Over two decades at The Wall Street Journal, Walker served as sports columnist, sports editor, deputy page-one editor and leadership columnist. He attended the University of Michigan. He lives in New York with his wife and two children. Sam had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “I've been blessed and cursed at the same time by being easily bored” (4:55). “When you walk in a door that you've never been through before, you see that people are dealing with a lot of the same things, the same issues, the same stresses” (8:35). “The book is really about what are the real qualities of effective leadership” (15:30). “The big threat to great leadership and sustained excellence is rarely a lack of ability, it's burnout” (16:20). “I need to be effective as a leader, but I also need to be efficient” (17:45). “You need to understand your superpower and your kryptonite” (18:45). “[Great leadership] is behavior. It's what you do. It's not anything you're born with. It's making the right choices in the right contexts” (20:40). “These captains don't over celebrate. They're almost more relieved when they win because they feel like that's how things are supposed to go” (24:05). “Everyone talks about Michael Jordan being a leader except Michael Jordan” (25:30). “I don't think the instincts of being a great captain and the instincts of being a great coach are really the same” (28:20). “No one has studied more dynasties than me. That's what I do. I seek out these dynasties because I want to understand long term successes” (29:40). “There are three things which I have always called the contagious behaviors of the boss or leader: relentless effort, toughness, and emotional control” (32:35). “The things that I notice about these great leaders is that they're not obvious leaders” (34:10). “Leadership is about what you do not who you are” (34:25). “These captains had very good relationships with people” (37:15). “There's no two dynasties that have had exactly the same culture” (43:45). “Be the best version of who you are, not of who you want to be” (45:25). “What is your unique culture?” (48:30). “Leadership is about this intense one-on-one communication where you talk as much as you listen” (54:15). “The act of being heard makes people feel safer” (55:25). “All of these great dynasties had a superstar who was rarely the captain” (59:15). “There's three phases of a dynasty: the building phase, the committing phase, and the maintaining phase. These three phases are completely different” (1:09:00). Additionally, make sure to check out Sam's website and to follow him on Twitter and LinkedIn! Thank you so much to Sam for coming on the podcast! I wrote a book called “Shift Your Mind” that was released in October of 2020, and you can order it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

When your doctor prescribes a new medicine, there's a pretty good chance that some snafu will crop up before you get it filled. Either your pharmacy doesn't carry it, or your insurance provider won't cover it, or they'll say you need "prior authorization," or your out-of-pocket cost will be sky-high. The basic problem is that the electronic health record systems and e-prescribing systems at your doctor's office don't include price and benefit information for prescription drugs. All of that information lives on separate systems at your insurance company and your health plan's pharmacy benefit manager, or PBM. And that's the gap that a company called RxRevu is trying to fix. Harry's guest on today's show RxRevu CEO Kyle Kiser, who explains the work the company has done to bring EHR makers, insurers, and PBMs together to make drug cost and coverage information available at the point of care, so doctors and patients can shop together for the best drug at the best price.Please rate and review The Harry Glorikian Show on Apple Podcasts!

I'm Harry Glorikian, and this is The Harry Glorikian Show, where we explore how technology is changing everything we know about healthcare.If you live in the United States and you've ever had your doctor prescribe a new medication, you've probably had the following experience.You drive from the doctor's office to the pharmacy.And when you get there, you find out that the pharmacy doesn't carry that particular drug. Or that they do carry it, but your insurance provider doesn't cover it. Or your insurance does cover it, but they require prior authorization. Which means you have to get back in touch with your doctor and ask them to tell the insurance company that you really do need the medicine.Or you already have prior authorization, but you haven't met your annual deductible yet, so your out-of-pocket cost is much more than you expected.If any one of these problems crops up, the chances that you'll actually get your prescription filled on the day you need it go way down.And it's not uncommon for several of these snafus to happen all at once.Fundamentallythat's because the electronic health record systems and the electronic prescribing systems at your doctor's office don't include price and benefit information for prescription drugs.All of that information lives on separate systems at your insurance company and your health plan's pharmacy benefit manager, or PBM.And that's the gap that a company called RxRevu is trying to fix.My guest on today's show is the CEO of RxRevu, Kyle Kiser.We talked about the software they've built to make drug cost and coverage information available within the major EHR systemsWhen doctors can see in real time which drugs are covered, at what price, for a specific patient, it obviously solves a huge pain point for patients, because it means they're more likely to get the drugs they need at an affordable price.But it also solves a big problem for doctors. Because, fairly or not, they're the ones who usually shoulder the blame when it turns out the medication they just prescribed is too expensive or isn't available.The kind of information RxRevu provides is going to be more and more important as the U.S. enters into an era of far greater price transparency, as mandated by the federal No Surprises Act, which went into effect on January 1 of this year.RxRevu is based in Denver, Colorado, and I reached Kyle Kiser at his home in Seattle, Washington. Here's our full conversation.Harry Glorikian: Kyle, welcome to the show.Kyle Kiser: Thanks, Harry. Happy to be here.Harry Glorikian: So, you know, we were just talking. You're in Seattle and I'm in Boston. I don't think we could be much farther apart when it comes to this particular country. So but let's start with a little bit of background, right. So. You're the CEO of RxRevu. And can you tell us a little bit about sort of the origin story about how you got started here? I mean, I understand your co-founder, Dr. Kevin O'Brien, had an interesting experience trying to get prescriptions filled for his mother, Lucy, but. What's the rest of that story? What did that story reveal to you about what's broken or missing in the way that doctors prescribes medicines or, you know, where the way that maybe payers approve prescription?Kyle Kiser: Yeah, absolutely. So a little background on Kevin's story. Kevin was initially inspired to do this because he wanted to solve a problem for his mom. She had an outsized out-of-pocket spend for meds. Like any good son, he wanted to help solve a problem for his mom. He used his expertise to find sort of ways to save on those medications, and that inspired him to start doing that in his clinic for his patients more comprehensively. So he was, you know, way ahead of his time and putting in all of this extra effort to really help find prescription options for patients that they could afford more easily. And that was the initial inspiration for what we've done today, which is connecting the point of care and clinical decision making with costs and coverage information that's real time and patient specific and location specific and moment in time specific, because all those things matter as inputs into a price.Kyle Kiser: So, you know, really the challenge we've been focused on is, is largely that, you know, the clinical decision making process has been pretty, pretty much disconnected, right, from marketplace information. So, you know, anything that impacts the purchasing of that care. And that was okay in a world where deductibles were low, formularies were relatively inexpensive and simple. But that world has changed dramatically over the last 10 to 20 years, right, as consumer driven healthcare has become the way of the world. And first dollar risk is now at the feet of the patient. It's that patients are now demanding that providers can consider not just what's best from a clinical perspective, but also set expectations around costs, set expectations around any restrictions that exist, and be an advocate for access to care. And the problem we're solving. We're building an access network. And within that access network, we help drive affordability and speed to care for patients. And we're doing that with a number of stakeholders. But at a high level, that's what we're trying to accomplish.Harry Glorikian: Well, you know, it's interesting, right? You know, entrepreneurship 101, solve a real need, right? So that there's a market there because everybody wants it. But so, I mean, look, I think everyone in the United States has probably had experiences similar to Dr. O'Brien's mom. I mean, you get to the pharmacy, you find out that the medication your doctor prescribed isn't covered by your plan, or you find out that the co-pay is outrageously high. But behind their personal experiences, I bet most people don't have a concept of how big and widespread this problem is. You know, you have any maybe some statistics that might illustrate the scale of the problem or how much money is wasted in the medical system because of these disconnects. I mean, I'm wondering how many prescriptions get abandoned or how many patients don't get the meds they need.Kyle Kiser: Yeah, I mean, at a. A macro level, you know, the prescription drug market makes just over makes up, you know, just over a half a trillion. Right. And, you know, estimates are that a third, even as much as half of that is waste and waste in the form of, you know, medications that aren't taken as prescribed or aren't delivering the right outcomes. I don't it's hard to find actually a a stakeholder in the supply chain that's delivered more value than meds themselves. I mean, if you think about, you know, the innovation in that world over the last 30 years, it's second to none. But the, you know, the supply chain within which they exist is complicated and it's hard to navigate. And the consequences of that is waste. And, you know, a ton of administrivia and friction. And frankly, patients bear the brunt of that. Ultimately, it's health plans and PBMs and risk bearing entities making rules on one end. It's providers and care teams making clinical decisions on the other end. And both of those processes are largely disconnected. And the only way that that gets harmonized in any way is a patient advocating for themselves. And we just fundamentally don't believe it should happen that way. What we're building is the connectivity between those stakeholders so that whether it's a provider at the point of care making the decision, whether it's a care team member trying to help you overcome a prior, or whether it's a patient trying to advocate for themselves using their own technology, we want to put real time, patient-specific, moment in time specific information in their hands to drive affordability and speed to care for that patient, no matter where they are in the care continuum.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. I mean, so this lack of prescription cost data, I mean at the point of care feels like a real canonical example of deep systemic problems with the with origins that are buried like deep in at least three of these complex organizations. Providers, payers and EHR makers. I mean, once you guys decided what the problem you wanted to fix was, how the hell did you figure out where to like -- okay, let's start here and let's move forward, right? Because.Kyle Kiser: Yeah.Harry Glorikian: Not trivial.Kyle Kiser: No, it's exactly the right observation because ultimately what we're building is a multi-sided network. And what's difficult about building a multi-sided network is, you know, users on one end, in this case, providers, aren't going to engage if it doesn't have the appropriate information in it. And the data sources, the ability to capture that appropriate information, they don't want to provide that data to you unless you have the appropriate users. So you get stuck in this chicken or the egg problem. And that's job one in growing this business, is to overcome that chicken or the egg problem. And the way we went about that was we worked really closely with health systems, with provider organizations, primarily because that's where the trust exists, is that ultimately patients seek out their provider and their care team to answer these questions. And so we worked closely with them as strategic partners and brought some of them in as investors in the company and aggregated a group of meaningful collaborators on the health system side, which then helped us bring PBMs and payers to the table to say, how do we solve these problems together? And that's that's sort of how we got out of the gate.Harry Glorikian: So I mean, tell me if we could dig a little into I think the product is called SwiftRx, if I remember correctly, but at a high level. You know, if you could describe for listeners, what is it? How does it work? And. Where does it fit in relation to the overall system?Kyle Kiser: Sure. Yes. So SwiftRx Direct is the product you're describing. What it provides is, is that real time, patient specific, location specific, moment in time specific information in the provider's native ordering workflow. So we are a data network that's powering a native feature inside the EMR that provides that insight while providers are selecting medications. So a typical flow would look like, a provider selects a medication. They then place that into a pending status in the software that they use. When that happens, we're able to gain visibility to that choice. We send that transaction out to our network of data sources, payers, PBMs, etc.. And what we get back is the price that is patient specific. We have formulary insights, so prior auth, quantity, limit, step therapy, those sorts of things. Those are also patient specific. And then most importantly, we get back alternatives. And those alternatives come in two forms. They're either a lower cost medication or a lower cost pharmacy where the patient can fulfill that medication. And that's sort of the core information that we then render back into the e-prescribing workflow. And we only interrupt those providers' workflows, or we and our partners only interrupt those providers workflows, when there's relevant information to consider. Because as I'm sure, you know, being deep in this world, provider engagement stuff -- you really have to be thoughtful about when, when is the appropriate time to intervene and when, when do we want to sort of get out of the way and make sure that when we are intervening, it's meaningful and understood to be meaningful?Harry Glorikian: Yeah. So I'm going to I mean, I heard a lot of what you said. I'm I want to maybe summarize all the. A few of these areas that people run into problems. But to try to understand sort of what are the big problems you had to solve to get it to really work? Because I'm just trying to get my head around the magnitude of the data headache here. Right. So if if you'll allow me, I'll just try to break it down into parts and then you can tell me how you're bridging all of these. So for one thing, there's the patient specific data about what kind of insurance each patient has and what level of benefits they have. And none of that is stored in the EHR at the clinic. As far as I know, typically the EHR would only list the patient's group number, subscription number or maybe the RxBin number. And then separate from all that, every insurance has a formula of drugs that will cover and sometimes a, you know, a schedule of different copay amounts for those drugs. And those formularies change every year and even more often. Right. And then there's a patient's actual prescription data which may live in their EMR or may live in a different system at the pharmacy. And then on top of that, there's this obscure black box system of prior authorization criteria that insurers may use to deny a prescription if they don't feel like paying for it. So the fact that the system is so fragmented is a familiar story to anybody who listens to this show. But tell me, you know, how on earth you were able to sort of get all this data under one roof, so to speak? You know, is there a specific architecture of the Swift system that makes you good at collecting all of this changing data and presenting it to the providers in real time?Kyle Kiser: Yeah. The only other element I'd add to your complexity salad is also benefit design, right. Is that yeah, the, the out-of-pocket cost can be and is dramatically different based on where you are in your coverage. If you're a commercial member with a high deductible, you're bearing the, you know, the in-network negotiated rate inside that deductible. And that changes pretty dramatically once you reach a deductible. Or if you're a Medicare member, there's the donut hole. And all of those things are also inputs and complexity to add to this. So to answer your question, it's really working closely with the stakeholders that control those, that are the source of that data. Right. You really can't get to an accurate price without working with those with those data sources specifically. So we work closely with the PBM, with the payer, and we do more or less a mock adjudication. So the same type of adjudication activity that happens on their end when a patient arrives at the point of sale is happening when a provider is making a prescribing decision in this case.Harry Glorikian: I mean, I can tell you, like the last time I had to sit and choose an insurer, and you would think that I'd be better at this than most, I remember having to take two Tylenol, because when I got done, because I thought my head was going to explode. And I could honestly not say to you I made the best choice. It was at the end, it was almost like a Hail Mary, I guess with all the complexity. And the other thing that I keep thinking about is when I used to watch, I think if you have kids, you've watched The Incredibles and there's a point in the show where the manager says they're penetrating inside of our systems to understand how to get how to get the system to pay them or whatever. It feels like it's that level of complexity. And you really need a sophisticated system to sort of bring all that information together to make sense of it all.Kyle Kiser: Yeah, that's true. And it is it is dynamic, it is highly variable and it's very different from administrator to administrator. Right. And a specific example of that, right, is that responses we get back are not across the board consistent, that here's an error and here's what that error means. And that error message is consistent from health plan to health plan. That's just not the way the world works, right. The error messages are specific to those claim systems because ultimately on the other side of the fence, these are mainframe systems in some cases that were designed decades ago that they've then created a layer to expose to the outside world, in this case us. And, you know, it's not simple work for us or for them. So I think the thing also to point out here is that there's a lot of effort from the payer- rrPBM community to make this accessible and to sort of change the way they're doing business and to change the way their technology works to enable some of these things, which is which is progress and should be commended for sure.[musical interlude]Harry Glorikian: Let's pause the conversation for a minute to talk about one small but important thing you can do, to help keep the podcast going.

So if I'm not mistaken, both Epic and Cerner have made it possible for providers to embed SwiftRx into their EHR. So if I understand it correctly, it even comes as a standard part of Cerner now. So those are two of the biggest EHR providers in the US.Kyle Kiser: And Athena.Harry Glorikian: And Athena, so question: how did you make that happen?Kyle Kiser: Well, you know, we've got a great team and the team executed ultimately. We worked really hard on those relationships. And I think it's both working with the right customers in small ways in the early days that leads to working with these types of partners and bigger ways. And frankly, some of the open programs at some of these places led to this. So early days, we were working in kind of the more open developer type programs with these EMR partners. We were working closely with some of their customers. Banner was one of our first customers. UC Health was one of our first customers, both a Cerner and an Epic user respectively, and, you know, is working in small ways to solve these problems together with those health systems that led us both to interacting with PBMs and ultimately building these enterprise level relationships with the EMR. It's, you know, it's, it's earning the trust, it's delivering for these customers and then earning the right to do this at scale. And we're to a point now where we'll do almost 100 million of these transactions this year. And it's you know, it's grown fast.Harry Glorikian: Yeah, that's a lot of that's a lot of data flowing back and forth. But so let's ask the money question, like, what's the business model? Who ends up paying you? Is it the provider buying SwiftRx as an add on to the existing EHR or how does that work?Kyle Kiser: It's the risk bearing entity ultimately. So think about that as payer and PBM. In most cases, there are cases where we work with health systems and there are some things we do that that are either channel related or related to specific needs that they have when they're that risk bearing entity. But at a high level, we follow the risk and we want to work with the customer that is bearing that risk because ultimately they're the ones that stand to benefit from an optimized prescription choice.Harry Glorikian: Okay. So that everybody gets a clear idea of like, can you give me a before and after picture at a clinic that brings SwiftRx into their EHR?Kyle Kiser: Sure. Yeah. So. You know, this is probably an experience many of many of the listeners have had. Right. Is that. Before such acts you interact with your physician, they diagnose you with whatever condition they've perceived. They select a medication. They route it to the pharmacy. You go to the pharmacy and cross your fingers that all of the requirements have been met. And that is at a price that you can afford if there is a prior or if that's too expensive. When you arrive at that site of fulfillment, you discover that, right, if there's a prior that's not been completed, then you've got to go through that prior authorization process and you're not picking up that prescription today. If it's a price you can't afford, you got to figure out how to pay for it. And there's a variety of ways that that happens. But ultimately, it's up to the patient to figure those things out. In a world where SwiftRx is installed, the difference is, as that prescription decision is happening, we notify the prescriber of the patient's out-of-pocket cost. In some cases, even the plan cost associated with that choice. Any restrictions that exist like prior or quantity limit or step therapy. And we also notify them of any lower cost alternatives. So in many cases, simple changes make big differences in in the out-of-pocket cost. And it might even be something as simple as, time release metformin can be hundreds if not $1,000, and regular old metformin is four bucks and has been four bucks for decades.Kyle Kiser: So it's some of those almost unintentional, I hesitate to call them errors on the provider side. It's just they're making choices based on their own sort of clinical expertise. But they don't they don't know these things, right? They don't know how a time release metformin might be reimbursed for one of the ten or 12 payers that they may see in a given clinic day. So it's just providing that insight upfront so that they can make those decisions and understand the trade offs. Is time release really important or is this patient going to be fine? And is that out-of-pocket costs for a med going to prevent them from being able to actually take that medication? And as a result, they're not going to receive any of the clinical benefit. So ultimately, the $4 option is probably better. So it's really connecting that clinical decision making process with all of the complexity that exists on the payer and PBM end so that we can get the decision right the first time. And when the patient shows up at the pharmacy, they know how much is going to cost, they feel comfortable that they can pay for it and they're either aware of the prior auth and have already completed the requirements or have some, some level of expectations set to how to complete those requirements.Harry Glorikian: So for all the reasons we've been discussing, doctors traditionally have been able to stay somewhat separated or maybe called it shielded from discussions about drug prices. I mean, they just prescribe a drug, leave it to their office staff or the patient or their pharmacy to figure out whether it's covered. But now, for organizations that are using your system that are built into their EHR, a clinical encounter, it can involve essentially going shopping in real time for the best drug at the best price. I mean, in your experience, how do doctors like being pulled into these decisions? I mean, I can see how it be great for patients, but I wonder if doctors are equally excited.Kyle Kiser: You know, one of the things that's been the most surprising to us around this subject, specifically patient out-of-pocket cost, is one of the most requested pieces of information in a primary care clinic, because it's so complex and it creates so many callbacks and it creates so much patient dissatisfaction. Because ultimately the patient's going to, at some level, hold that prescriber accountable for that decision. And if it's really expensive med there's an assumption that the provider knew that already or should have known that, whether that's true or not. And so what that's resulted in is primary care providers want this information, they want it. They want to have this at their fingertips when they're making decisions. It's the world certainly changed in that way. So I think, you know, it's becoming a part of the standard of care being able to consider cost. Because to the point earlier, the only medication that works is the one the patient can afford. And so you really have to consider those things because of the way our sort of health care payment infrastructure exists. Right. There's just, patients are bearing a dramatic portion of that cost these days and got to consider that as a part of the way you deliver care.Harry Glorikian: I mean, I almost feel like your company is is pushing. These providers and payers and to fix the prescription benefit system or making them more efficient or compatible.Kyle Kiser: Yeah. I think there is a, I maybe describe it as rationalizing. R I don't think that a clinical team and a PBM and PNT committee at a health system have dramatically different opinions on what medications should be prescribed, for what conditions. The friction exists in that they're making those decisions in isolation of one another. So I think I see our role as a connector to help, you know, in a value based world, the incentives start to align between risk bearing entity and health system. And many times the health system becomes the risk bearing entity fully. And so our goal is to empower providers to understand those things in real time, to manage the complexity for them, only engage them with the information that makes a difference in the decision they're trying to make and ultimately create a better experience for the patient, a better outcome for the patient, and a less burdensome process for the provider organization.Harry Glorikian: So as we all know, I mean, the American medical system is famous for sending patients surprise bills after clinical encounter or an emergency room visit, right. Where a bandage or an aspirin can carry some crazy prices that I've seen. And I'm trying to project onto where you are as a company and where you want to go. I mean, now that you've tackled the rrtransparency in drug pricing, which I would honestly like to see everywhere, because I think I've heard my wife complain all the time when she encounters some astronomical price. Right. Can you imagine trying to tackle or bring greater transparency to other medical costs, such as maybe a surgical procedure or hospital supplies. I mean, is there anything that you've learned about prescription benefits that's transferable to all these other types of care?Kyle Kiser: Absolutely. Yeah. We're already moving beyond prescriptions today and focused on labs, radiology services, generally. And see the dynamics of the payer-PBM end of the market five or six years ago as it relates to pharmacy real time benefit shaping up much in the same way around medical benefits. That payers are thinking about these problems in the same ways and are showing initiative and prioritizing putting this information at the point of care for for all of the reasons that we just described on the drug side are true in many ways on the medical side. So, yes, absolutely. That's where we're headed. And the regulatory tailwinds are there in a new way. Right. If you think about in the last 12 months, there's been more price transparency legislation than in the last 30 years. And that, combined with the no surprise billing legislation, really creates this this kind of pre EOB requirement for each of the stakeholders and they got to solve that problem. And we see ourselves as really well positioned to be a part of that solution.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. I mean, you know, it there was no way. I mean, the Affordable Care Act got put into place and there were certain things in there that just there was no way that you were going to be able to do that without some level of transparency and understanding what's going on.Kyle Kiser: Yeah. Yeah, that's right. But even further, right, before the end of last year there were price transparency regulations for health systems, for providers, for payers. And then the no surprise billing legislation has in it a component that says, you know, before you deliver care, you got to be able to give an estimation of cost. And so all of those things sort of work together from a regulatory perspective to start to drive the market in that direction. So absolutely, it's coming everywhere. It's going to be, it's going to be a part of the way that every health care decision is made in the future. And it's just a matter of time before that's the case.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. It's interesting because I have lots of conversations with, you know, lots of different people. And they I don't think they understand that. If you don't have that level of transparency, you truly don't have a competitive environment, right? You can't make choices because you don't have the information to be able to make that choice.Kyle Kiser: That's exactly right. Without it, there is no marketplace. Right. That's probably overstated. It's without it, it's a dysfunctional marketplace. And with transparency, we will start to see real competitive dynamics emerge. And I'm hopeful for that. Sunlight's the greatest antiseptic.Harry Glorikian: Oh, I totally agree. I mean, for me, it's always been like a walled garden. Like, you know, either you're here or, you know, you're out of luck, right? Because you don't have any information so you can go across the street. So. So. I guess I should be asking. I've probably reached the limit of my knowledge on the subject matter, but like, is. Is there anything I haven't asked you or anything, you know, that you would want to add to the conversation that would be enlightening to the people that are listening?Kyle Kiser: Yeah, well, the only thing I would sort of make sure we reframe a little bit is that this isn't necessarily about price transparency. Price transparency is a component of providing access to care for patients, and that's ultimately what we continually focus on inside of our company, that price is an input. Affordability is an input. Convenience is an input. The ability to actually receive the prescription is an input. We're ultimately trying to make sure that affordability and speed to care lead to better outcomes. And that's an access story, not just a price transparency story. And so that's the only sort of reframe that I'd offer is that ultimately this has to lead to better health, people getting healthier, getting the care they need, being able to afford the medications that they need. And that's the work. And we're going to stop at nothing to make sure that that happens.Harry Glorikian: Excellent. Well, it was great talking to you, Kyle. I wish you great success because, I mean, whenever I talk to anybody, I'm like, I know I could be benefiting from all of this, so I want everybody to be successful.Kyle Kiser: We appreciate the well-wishes and we'll be working hard to ensure that that's the case.Harry Glorikian: Excellent.
