Our guest today on the Lean to the Left podcast is Dr. Joe Eusterman, now nearly 93 years old, spent 50 years practicing internal, occupational and environmental medicine in Oregon and elsewhere, and is mad as hell.In fact, Dr. Joe is so upset that he launched Mad As Hell Doctors.com 14 years ago, and traveled around the country in a decked out RV trying to do something about America's health care system.Dr. Joe is not on the road anymore, but is still mad as hell and promises to remain so until we have universal health care for all Americans. Dr. Joe is part of Physicians for a National Health Program, which promotes public advocacy and continues to see enactment of a single payer healthcare system, such as Medicare for All. We know that Bernie Sanders made Medicare for All a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, but in this divided Congress – even with Democrats in theoretical control – there doesn't seem to be much hope, at least in the immediate future.According to Dr. Joe, the healthcare system in the U.S. is far too costly and at the same time inefficient. A focus on money and profit is at the heart of the problem, he contends, and the major reason why Congress has refused to enact Medicare for All.But he is optimistic and has no intention of quitting, and he hopes you'll pitch in and help, too.Here are some resources recommended by Dr. Joe:On YouTube: Health, Money and Fear; The Healthcare Movie; Prairie Giant: The Story of Tommy Douglas; The Story of Mouseland.Organizations & Background info:mvhca.org/dvdspnhp.org/what-is-single-payer/pnhp.org/about/pnhp-mission-statement/https://madashelldoctors.comSingle Payer bills:Pramila Jayapal-HR1976-"Medicare For All Act of 2021"Bernie Sanders- SB4204-"Medicare For All Act of 2022"Ro Khanna-HR3775-"State-based Universal Health Care Act of 2021"Here are some questions answered by Dr. Joe in this episode:1. Are you still mad as hell?2. Why?3. What are you doing to effect change?4. What's chances for a single payor system in today's political atmosphere?5. Why would it be beneficial?6. Critics say it would put healthcare in the hands of bureaucrats and create long lines and wait times for appointments. Are they wrong? If so, why?7. Do you have some experiences from your practice of medicine that you can share that relate to this topic?8. How many bus trips did you take? When was the last one? What did you do?9. You're almost 93. What are you going to do when you really retire?Take a listen.

Through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Medicaid expansion has yielded clear improvements in insurance coverage and access to care for low-income adults younger than 65, but has Medicaid expansion also had spillover benefits for adults 65 and older? In this interview with JAMA Health Forum Editor John Ayanian, MD, MPP, and Deputy Editor Melinda Buntin, PhD, Melissa McInerney, PhD, describes how older adults with low incomes and limitations related to chronic conditions were more likely to have Medicaid coverage and recent visits with physicians in states that have expanded Medicaid for younger adults than those in nonexpansion states.

The Unintended Impact of Medicaid Expansion on Drug PricesRecently, we attended the Hematology Oncology Pharmacy Association's annual meeting in Boston, where we presented research our team did on the effect of Medicaid Expansion on the price of drugs.

What we discovered is that there may be some unintended consequences on drug pricing.
“I did not ever think of private equity as a career option for me,” admits Dr. Adaeze Enekwechi, and not only because she saw it as a male-dominated profession. The former head of health at the Office of Management and Budget under President Obama and Ph.D. in health management expected to make a difference through public policy. But as an Operating Partner at Welsh, Carson, Anderson and Stowe, she's having an impact from a different perch. “We look at assets or companies to build that would make a meaningful contribution in whatever specific healthcare ecosystem we're interested in investing in,” she tells Futuro Health CEO Van Ton-Quinlivan. “Our philosophy is not to just put money towards something and collect. We're looking for opportunities to build something meaningful.” One current example is finding solutions to the nursing shortage and the painful budget crunch hospitals are enduring to pay for traveling staff. Investing in contingency staffing companies would earn a return, she says, but does nothing to solve the problem. A more useful target, she says, is leveraging technology to optimize the existing workforce. Adaeze shares examples of other issues she's looking at through a private equity lens including racial inequities in care, social determinants of health, and what the training needs are as more care is being provided in the home. Check out this thoughtful episode of WorkforceRx in which you'll also find out why this nationally respected healthcare leader thinks retail giants like Walmart and CVS should be applauded, and which two healthcare issues you should keep a close eye on in the coming months.
