Prevention of disease and promotion of wellbeing
Telehealth is quickly becoming the next frontier for patients and their doctors to collaborate. By using smartphones or tablets, more patients can now have access to quality care without leaving their home or backyard - who needs an office visit when you can just chat or call?Having served as Command Master Chief of Naval Hospital and Navy Medical Forces Atlantic in the past, Michael Hinklehas been around hospitals and clinics and has seen how telehealth is being used more and more. As physicians and other clinicians turn to emerging technology solutions to provide more services and keep patients safe, telehealth is helping to expand access to healthcare while reducing costs at the same time.Today on the Expert(ish) Podcast, Jay shares a fun conversation with Mike for the second time.

You know, less than 20 bucks your whole family can have telehealth, not each person but the whole family. And a lot of times, people just need somebody to talk to. They don't need to go sit in front of a psychiatrist and psychologist and give them $300 an hour, right? They need someone to say, it's going to be okay today. And telehealth can do that." - Michael Hinkle "Your network is the most important thing you can have. There are people out there to help you do anything you want to accomplish in life. You can just reach out and someone will help you." - Michael Hinkle "My biggest mistake when starting a business, a lot of people do and they know better but they do it anyway, is you spend all your money on a great product and then you don't have any money left for marketing." - Michael Hinkle "Titles don't mean anything. It's all about skill sets. Anytime you sit down and you hire someone, you shouldn't be hiring them into a position. You should figure out what they're good at. If you're going to hire them, put them where they can succeed. You can't judge a fish by its ability to climb a ladder." - Michael Hinkle "When we started thinking about this and we went and did our research, the one fact that sticks out in my mind is that 70% of doctor visits can be handled by telehealth." - Michael Hinkle Engage with Michael Hinkle LinkedInSkillMil WebsiteDiapers and Deployments | SkillMil Podcast Connect with Expert(ish) Podcast Host JAY JOHNSON Call (858) 925- 4536 WebsiteLinkedInFacebookInstagram

This episode's conversation is about the new Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), the fee disclosure part of it, as well as ERISA and the fiduciary responsibility that self-insured employers are responsible to comply with under the law. Don't worry, the first thing my guest in this healthcare podcast, Christin Deacon, does is explain these terms, what they actually mean, and how they can be a tool actually in CEOs' or CFOs' toolboxes to get access to the employer's own claims data, which is a linchpin here that we'll talk about in a sec. But suffice to say here that the ERISA fiduciary responsibility has a few provisions and, in general, self-insured employer health plan administrators kind of tend to off-load worrying about these provisions to their brokers and consultants. The problem with this is that brokers and consultants do not bear the ERISA fiduciary responsibility. They do not bear the responsibility of complying with the CAA either. The employer does. You'd think that, given this, more self-insured employers would dig in hard to do their own due diligence to check whether or not their plan is compliant. But they don't. I asked Parker Edman from Leavitt Partners why, and he said he thought that it's likely a combination of the “old boy's network” and a fear of the massive lift that switching up plan designs or even looking at this might entail. But here's another facet: There's a contingent of plan advisors and carriers who have a very vested interest in self-insured employers not knowing what's going on with their spend. And they actually even have a magic trick that they have developed to beat back inquiries. In this magic trick, HIPAA is the abracadabra. Let me give you an example role-play. Self-insured employer: I need my claims data. Carrier: HIPAA. Self-insured employer: Nooo, not the HIPAA. I stand down. Forget I mentioned it. Here's a pro tip: Actually read HIPAA. Pull it up on your computer. It's easy to find. Spoiler alert: You know what you'll discover? Ninety percent of it is a love note to the carriers themselves that govern the data they must possess and the structure of that data. Ten percent of it is about the privacy of that data, and in that 10%, it specifies clearly that a self-insured employer is a covered entity and, therefore, falls under the umbrella of who can have access to claims data, especially if it is deidentified. Of course, said employer has obligations as to how to treat that data, but yeah, just don't be fooled by the HIPAA when it's wielded like sorcery. The only reason that word has any power is because so many C-suites let it have power. Also now, there's some provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, the CAA (which was passed in 2020), which really ups the ante here. My guest, Christin Deacon, explains all of this and more, including what's up with the CAA, which is good because I could barely remember the name of it throughout the course of this interview. Christin Deacon is a healthcare leader and public-sector entrepreneur. She is a former deputy attorney general, a “recovering attorney” as she calls herself. Earlier this year, 2021, she left her role running the state health and school health benefits plan for about 800,000 New Jersey public employees. Now, she's just transitioned to the private sector where she serves as an executive VP at 4C Health Solutions. You can learn more by emailing Christin at email@example.com. You can also connect with her on LinkedIn. Christin Deacon is a healthcare thought leader who brings with her a wealth of experience in both public and private sector. Driven by her passion to change the healthcare system to truly benefit patients and payers, she focuses on bringing solutions and agency to self-funded and government-sponsored health plans. 04:10 What is ERISA, and what does it stand for? 05:40 What is a fiduciary obligation for an employer? 08:18 “We're now at a point of spending 17.7% of our GDP on healthcare costs.” 09:39 “You absolutely have the keys to … controlling that spend.” 13:35 “You have to own your data.” 15:04 “If you don't have your claims data, how do you know you're paying reasonable fees?” 15:31 “If your carrier is telling you, ‘Oh, HIPAA … you can't look at your data,' you need to pull out that red BS card.” 16:25 How do employers navigate carriers refusing to share claims data? 21:36 “It has only as much teeth as the self-funded employer is … willing to learn about it and … willing to push back.” 22:22 “This is not aspirational; this is an absolute floor.” 24:11 “What does value mean?” 27:41 “Become familiar with HIPAA beyond just the privacy piece.” 29:30 “At the end of the day, it's about people.” 29:38 “If you're not paying reasonable fees, you're using plan assets to enrich others.” 32:21 “The self-insured market … they hold the keys to unlocking value.

In the United States, 85% of the population resides within 10 miles of a CVS Pharmacy. Through continued growth and expansion since its founding as a health and beauty products retailer in the early 1960s, CVS Health has now become America's largest health services company. That expansion accelerated over the last two decades through acquisitions of companies like MinuteClinic, Caremark and Aetna that embedded CVS even more deeply into the U.S. healthcare system and communities across the country. Josh Flum has played key roles in CVS Health's transformation and healthcare strategy for nearly 20 years. After Yale Law School and a few years as a white-collar criminal defense attorney in Washington, DC, Josh decided on a career change and landed a job at Boston Consulting Group where he first crossed paths with CVS. In this episode of Healthcare is Hard, Josh tells Keith Figlioli about one project at BCG where he was begrudgingly selected to spend two weeks virtually living at CVS pharmacies learning everything there is to know about how they operate. That assignment proved invaluable for the rest of Josh's career. Since joining CVS in 2004, he has held several senior roles including leading pharmacy operations and overseeing Enterprise Product Innovation and Development teams. He also co-founded and leads CVS Health Ventures, and is currently CVS Health's Chief Strategy & Business Development Officer.Josh and Keith covered several pressing topics during this Healthcare is Hard interview including: The next evolution in pharmacy. Josh talks about fundamental shifts in the pharmacy business that have occurred in his career and what he thinks is in store for the future. While the deeply personal connection between people, families and pharmacists has always persisted – and will be integral for the future – the pharmacy business has moved from being about medication fulfilment, to clinical pharmacy care including medication adherence, to other aspects of medical care such as testing and immunizations. Josh says the future will be about pharmacists practicing at the top of their license and balancing clinical care interventions with new technology and the consumer relationships that pharmacists have always maintained.The retail threat. Keith posed the same question to Josh that he asked Walgreen's CMO on last month's Healthcare is Hard episode: how should incumbent healthcare delivery players think about the emerging role of retailers? To Josh, it comes down to how a company fits into three trends: patient as consumer; care in community, home and virtual settings; and technology. Josh says CVS feels very well positioned to play a big role in the future of healthcare as these trends continue to evolve, while recognizing that the company still has much more to do and will need to work in partnership with the broader healthcare system to make the kind of change that is necessary.The flip side of innovation. Through his role at CVS Health Ventures, Josh sees many of the exciting developments that are going to make care easier and more ubiquitous, but sometimes wonders if the pace of advancement could overwhelm consumers. Putting himself in the consumer's shoes, he says it's all about trust. He believes consumers will turn to the people and organizations they know and trust to help navigate new experiences – organizations like CVS Health. For its part in the innovation ecosystem, Josh says CVS Health Ventures is currently focusing on investment themes including care delivery, consumer centric healthcare, whole person care and disruptive tech enablement that crosses all these domains.To hear Josh and Keith talk about these topics and more, listen to this episode of Healthcare is Hard.

If you've caught toxoplasmosis from your cat, you may be more likely to take risks. So why not take the plunge and listen to this podcast? As Halloween approaches, Bill Sullivan, PhD, joins the Healthcare Triage podcast to share his research about genetics and infectious disease, including ways certain infectious agents have spawned monster legends, like vampires, werewolves and zombies. These medical myths offer an opportunity to think about aspects of science people may not always consider, such as how a change in one nucleotide in DNA can make a profound effect on someone's appearance, personality or behavior.
Our guest for this episode is Nan Henderson, DNP, MSN-Ed, RN, a former critical care nurse who is an expert in patient safety, particularly as it relates to handoffs. After a series of internal surveys revealed that handoffs were consistently an issue within her organization, Nan and her team focused on completely overhauling their process. Starting with a literature review and focus groups with the organization's nurses, Nan was eventually drawn to I-PASS, a standardized method for handoffs that greatly reduced the amount of errors involved in care transitions. Today she and Dan talk about this process in detail, as well as her overall efforts to create a strong culture of safety and reduce harm events at her facility.

Despite countless billions of dollars spent, and decades of effort, healthcare still lags behind other industries when it comes to successfully using digital technologies to interact with its customers — the patients. The ongoing challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in rapid advances in digital health solutions and telehealth. The pharmaceutical industry essentially performed a miracle in delivering several effective new drugs in just months. Bradford Lee, VP of Life Sciences at Lifelink Systems, sat down with Greg Kefer to share some of the developments he's been part of in his role working with top innovation executives across all segments of the pharmaceutical industry. The combination of big organizations, legacy processes, and heavy regulation have historically held back rapid innovation and Silicon Valley thinking, but that may be changing. Mature technology that's mobile and conversational is lowering the friction barrier for patients and trial participants. Healthcare providers are showcasing their digital transformation successes, paving the path for the entire industry. We are also seeing the traditional internal barriers for digital transformation come down as life science companies begin to look for ways to deploy simple, effective solutions quickly to get wins on the board and begin to generate the kinds of results needed for wide-scale innovation. Healthcare may be on the cusp of finally catching up to the other consumer industries that the leaders keep saying they want to emulate.
The combination of a unique economic moment and major new funding out of Washington is creating an opportunity to rethink workforce development policies and programs. But will the tough questions be asked that will lead to a significant reshaping of the nation's approach? Maria Flynn, president and CEO of Jobs for the Future, is hopeful, but is not yet seeing the “blue sky redesign” discussion she thinks is necessary. “We are largely operating public systems that were designed for a different era. A lot of the conversations now are about funding but are not questioning those underlying assumptions of 'are these the systems that we need for today and the future'? My answer to that is largely no,” says Flynn. There's a lot to learn in this probing conversation with Futuro Health CEO Van Ton Quinlivan about transforming American education and workforce systems, the growing corporate role in education, helping employers deliver on diversity, strategies to boost innovation, taking a regional approach to economic development and much more.

Dr. Roxie Mooney is in the house to share some provocative thinking about how to keep healthcare consumers in focus while bringing innovations to market. The #1 reason innovators fail is because there's no market need for their solution, so just because you think a problem is worth solving doesn't mean it is. Roxie dives deep into co-creation, the need for early adoption, and marketing and branding's role in the process. All that, plus the Flava of the Week about how trying to change healthcare is hard.

Dan Pink is the author of several New York Times bestsellers—Drive, To Sell is Human, When, and A Whole New Mind—in which, broadly, he examines topics like creativity, work, and humanity. In this episode, we discuss topics relating to today's healthcare system, distilling major criticisms and proposed solutions. Among the problems discussed are defensive medicine, physician burnout, and incentives built into US health insurance. Methods to alleviate these problems, Dan suggests, "re-igniting physicians' passion for their scientific work" To conclude our discussion, Dan and I explore the possibilities of AI in medicine—and how this technology could free physicians to practice more creatively and holistically. If doctors' time is freed up from diagnosis of diabetes, but she still meets with the patient, she can actually get to the contextual and systemic things that might be surrounding that diabetes. For instance: the person is lonely, doesn't have a lot of friends, is cut off from social connections…and, as a consequence of that, is not eating well.” Addressing these factors, Mr. Pink says, represents the greatest (if least glamorous) “opportunity to help people to be healthy.” To learn more about Dan's work, follow him on LinkedIn, Twitter, or his personal website, which includes articles, videos, and interviews.

Last month marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Two weeks after that tragic day, The Onion, the famed comedy newspaper, put out an issue with jokes about 9/11. How did they do that? Scott Dikkers, one of The Onion's founders teaches us how. His rule is that comedy is meant to “afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.” That's why they put out that issue. To comfort the afflicted. As physicians, that's what we do! How can we be funny, even in the face of tragedy? Mr. Dikkers teaches comedy writing and has turned what seems unteachable into a science. He has described funny filters and all comedy fits into one of those filters. He teaches us which are the best for the exam room, how to recover from a failed joke, how to work humor into our office visits and lectures, and what jokes comedians can't use, but we can! Scott Dikkers founded the world's first humor website, TheOnion.com, in 1996. A few years earlier he helped found the original Onion newspaper. He's served as The Onion's owner and editor-in-chief, on and off, for much of the last quarter century. He led The Onion's rise from small, unknown college humor publication to internationally respected comedy brand. He is also a New York Times best seller, and Peabody Award winner. He documented his process for creating humor in his book, How to Write Funny, and the second in the series, How to Write Funnier, and next on the way, How to Write Funniest, which are the basis of the Writing with The Onion program he created and teaches at The Second City Training Center in Chicago. Scott offers other courses and free resources for comedy writers on the How to Write Funny website. Today's sponsor is CompHealth. To find out more visit financialresidency.com/comphealth

J.-C. Spender, PhD, is an engineer-turned-business school professor, an author, an expert on the history of business education, and he's a former business executive and business school dean. These credentials equip him to have insight into the goings-on of business schools and real expertise in the practical challenges of graduate business education. Dr. Spender has a distinct philosophical bent which surfaces in this episode (and more so in Part 2 of this interview—Episode #30). He sports a professorial persona, likely honed with endless graduate students, which means a few pugilistic remarks punctuate our conversation even when we are in “violent agreement.”I asked him to come onto the LTL podcast to talk about Managerialism. He and Robert R. Locke co-wrote the book Confronting Managerialism—How the Business Elite and their Schools Threw our Lives out of Balance.Dr. Spender makes it clear from the get-go that controversy related to managerialism must be seen in terms of conflicting values. By necessity, there are distinct values driving people who are involved in the financial or operational details of large organizations. He believes critics of managerialism might suffer from the delusion that it's possible to run a complex organization without applying attention and resources to maintaining the multiplicity of needs of the enterprise itself. This “idiotic and fruitless” stance ignores the fact that friction between managers and professionals represents an inevitable clash of values.In this episode Dr. Spender says “The issues of managerialism in the healthcare sector are extraordinarily important--they are the cutting edge of getting a sense of how on earth do we manage these systems?”In this episode:-Principles and theory—the scaffolding for the actual practice of a profession-Tacit knowledge—you won't escape this podcast without a clear picture of the critical nature of experiential learning-Principles and theory must step aside to allow tacit knowledge, practice, and the “real you” to assert agency in times of uncertainty-The mystifying chasm between the business community and business school curriculum-The “deadly, fatal” loss of critique in academic business literature-Business school faculty priorities: getting published, tenured, and pensioned-Being “present” vs. sacrificing yourself to a principleMeet J.-C. Spender, PhDDr. Spender is a Research Professor at Kozminski University, Warsaw; an Emeritus Research Fellow, Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership; and a Visiting Scholar with Fordham Center for Humanistic Management. He served in Royal Navy submarines and he worked with Rolls-Royce on nuclear propulsion, IBM on financial computing, and as an investment banker before earning a PhD at the Manchester Business School (UK). He retired in 2003 as Dean of the School of Business & Technology at FIT/SUNY (New York). He has published eight books, and over 100 journal articles and book chapters. His most recent book is Business Strategy: Managing Uncertainty, Opportunity, and Enterprise (Oxford UP 2014) which is his dissident view of strategy as a practice that includes the need to manage a business's creative responses to uncertainty. He also writes about the theory and ethics of the firm, business strategy, and the history of management education. In 2014 he was awarded an honorary doctorate in economics by the Lund University School of Economics & Management. He is also Commissioning Editor for the Cambridge University Press Elements in Business Strategy.For details of his current work, broader interests, and a detailed resume go to: https://jcspender.com/For a Glossary of Sorts (aka Spenderisms) in this episode, read the 10/19/21 Licensed to Lead newsletter (and for heaven's sake: subscribe!): https://bit.ly/LTLmoreinfo

Introducing our guest in this episode, Laura Marquez, who is currently the Assistant Vice President of IT Applications at UConn Health, overseeing electronic health records, business applications, and business intelligence. With a Master's Degree in Healthcare Administration, Laura had taken interest in a Clinical Informatics course which started to build her passion in that field. In this episode, Laura shares her experience with IT in the healthcare sector as well as detailed knowledge of key leadership concepts with particular emphasis on empathy in the workplace. Top Takeaways [05:11] IT is a customer service department focused on delivering solutions and tools to other departments to aid patient care. [08:06] About Laura's TEDx talk: The most valuable asset at any organization is the people that work there. Listeners are encouraged to listen to Laura's TEDx talk to learn more about leadership and empathy in the workplace. [11:48] Learning empathy: Everyone receives feedback differently and wants constructive criticism differently. [18:29] Facilitating teamwork can be achieved by having team norms that are agreed upon, making it easier to note and address behaviors that don't align. [24:06] Your view has to change as you go higher in your career because you can now empathize with younger professionals, having faced similar challenges. Rather than judge them, accept the work they do even if you may have done it differently, as long as the goals were achieved. [29:13] Current changes in the Healthcare industry: Bringing digital tools into the clinical space is a major ongoing development, with particular consideration given to ensure these digital tools are very accessible to patients. [32:57] Listeners with interest or opportunities in healthcare are encouraged to be bold, be brave and apply for healthcare jobs; even without a background in healthcare, there are translatable skills. [36:10] The 'STAR' Interviewing method: When asked behavioral-type questions, follow the STAR method (Situation Task, Action, Result) as this helps you respond concisely to meet all parameters being evaluated by the question. [39:50] Best career advice: What's the worst that could happen, take risks, be bold. [40:32] Choose your attitude: How do you think you're showing up, what does the best you look like today? [42:32] Habits that contribute to success when leading projects: Have a questioning mindset and imbibe this in your team. The 7-second rule: when you ask a question, you need to pause and count for 7 seconds because that allows time and space for the introverts to answer. This also helps keep a continuous feedback loop to be sure you're in the right direction. [44:14] Mobile website recommendation: LinkedIn, Newsfeeds, [46:31] A professional society recommendation: A.C.H.E (American College of Healthcare Executives) [47:21] Book recommendation: “Dare to Lead” by Brené Brown. [49:00] Laura's message to herself in the past; When one door closes, a window opens, keep your head high. Her message to her future self; Told you so! Listen to your guts more often. [51:36] Final advice from Laura: We have to remember that we can only control our own thoughts and reactions, we can't control those of other people. How do you want to be perceived? Work on your emotional intelligence so that your intents and perceptions match. Key Quotes: "Let's invite people in and raise them up so that everyone can do their best" "Every single person should go through emotional intelligence training and situational awareness training" "Look forward, not sideways… focus on yourself and not on others" Connect: Find | Laura Marquez On LinkedIn --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/healthcarequalitycast/message

Systems of oppression like racism, sexism, and classism lead to poor health outcomes. These factors are a source of poor mental health and have particular implications for pregnant and birthing people.Black women who face multiple axes of oppression experience higher rates of maternal mental health conditions than the population as a whole. Yet maternal mental health issues among black women are under reported and often under addressed.Isabel Morgan, director of the the Birth Equity Research Scholars Program at the National Birth Equity Collaborative, joins A Health Podyssey to discuss the affects of structural racism on black birthing people's mental health and how we can do better.Morgan and coauthors published a paper in the October 2021 issue of Health Affairs - which is dedicated to the topic of perinatal mental health - describing what they call pathways to equitable and anti-racist maternal mental health care. Through interviews with black maternal and infant mental health individuals, they identify five key pathways.Listen to Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil discuss those pathways with Isabel Morgan and other opportunities to improve maternal mental health issues among black women.If you like this interview, order the October Perinatal Mental Health Theme Issue.Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

This episode could save you thousands, tens of thousands, even HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars. So make sure you listen to it ASAP.One of the biggest recurring expenses for many early-stage entrepreneurs in the post-Obamacare era is health insurance. In fact, many people never even consider striking out on their own simply because they're afraid to leave their employer and lose their health insurance.Lots of people have pivoted to health share programs, but those come with their own major drawbacks, the most significant being that it can often take months to get paid out on claims. Not everyone can afford to float thousands of dollars in bills for 60-90 days, or even longer.If you can relate to any of this, you MUST listen to today's show.Our guest is Andy Schoonover, CEO of upstart "community-powered alternative to health insurance" CrowdHealth.After being tagged with an $8,000 bill for a 10-minute procedure that his health insurance refused to pay -- even though it was urgently recommended for his daughter by her doctor! -- Andy decided to do more than just sit around and complain about the injustice of our healthcare system. He put his money where his mouth is and built a solution.If you're anything like us, you'll hardly be able to believe just how good their business model is.FULL DISCLOSURE: as of the recording of this episode, CrowdHealth is a sponsor of this show.
