Health equity is an important concept, but it's talked about sparing amongst fitness professionals. Our guest in episode 77, Dr. Daphne Bascom, feels strongly it's time for that to change.

It's precisely those methods we'll discuss in this episode of the Wellness Paradox Podcast. Dr. Bascom's passion for this subject is contagious, and her recommendations are not only inspiring and thoughtful, but highly actionable as well. If fitness professionals are to integrate into the healthcare delivery system, we must not only be strong proponents of health equity, but we must be actively involved in improving it. Show Notes Page: https://www.wellnessparadoxpod.com/podcast/episode/77 Our Guest: Dr. Daphne BascomDaphne Bascom, MD, PhD, is a health coach with The Vegan Gym. Dr. Bascom currently works part time for the MITRE Corporation in McLean Virginia as a healthcare consultant.

In Part 2 of our conversation with Dr. Azizi Seixas, we discuss the relationship between medical academia and the opportunities afforded by big tech. In his work in the Media and Innovation Lab (MIL) at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, he teaches new generations of healthcare innovators to stay curious about the solutions to the biggest problems facing healthcare today.  In his pursuit of a vibrant and equitable future, Dr. Seixas looks for solutions in unexpected places. Open to all possibilities and ideas, he believes that true innovation stems from a purpose-driven life. He uses medicine and technology as tools to create a better world.    Dr. Seixas (Say-shas) is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science and the Director of the Media and Innovation Lab at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He is also the Associate Director for the Center for Translational Sleep and Circadian Sciences (TSCS) and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Population Health and Psychiatry at NYU Langone.  Innovation means keeping an open mind Dr. Seixas teaches students to be innovative leaders of the future. What does that mean? According to Dr. Seixas, it means keeping an open mind - and being a student forever.  Dr. Seixas encourages us to think of ourselves as expert students with more to learn, humble and always receptive to new ideas. This philosophy is useful in innovation by keeping us on a path of exploration, leading us to exciting solutions we may not have seen otherwise.  The innovative future of healthcare When it comes to new solutions to today's problems, Dr. Azizi Seixas doesn't shy away from challenging questions. When asked about the relationship between healthcare and big tech companies, his answer was surprising - he's all for it.  Rather than approaching the issue with concern, Dr. Seixas is curious about how we could create massive, positive change using funding from big tech. He also sees opportunities for us to build a system of checks and balances, preventing issues before they arise. He envisions a world where healthcare is accessible from the comfort of our own homes, where we don't have to take time off work to get the care we need and we don't need to sit in a waiting room to talk with physicians.  Enjoy Part 2 of this exciting forward-thinking conversation about the future of healthcare with Dr. Azizi Seixas! Quotes “When you grow up in a poor working-class family, you become an innovator. You have to find solutions!”  “In order to stay sharp, you have to force yourself to be a student.” “To innovate and do bold things, you have to flow forward and chase your goal. When you're constantly chasing your vision, you'll always end up being ahead of the curve.” “My mother always told me, ‘Never take no for an answer'. As a scientist, I think you need to think like this. You need to be flexible - cognitively and emotionally flexible. It allows me to see things optimistically.” “This is where big tech comes in - they have the infrastructure to scale, and scale quickly. Science gives itself some time to ensure that the results they have are not flukes, and that they are vetted over a period of time. But when it comes to invention and innovation, sometimes we need to do things quickly! We need to accelerate it. Through partnerships where we can quickly implement and iterate on solutions, that's where medicine needs to go.” “If you're pitching an idea, it must have a research question and a problem that you're solving. If you're very clear on that, you're good.” “If you're doing the business of serving people, you should never compromise your values for others.” Links mentioned in this episode: Visit Dr. Seixas' website: https://draziziseixas.com/  Hire Dr. Seixas to speak, giving your audience an inspiring vision of the future of health: https://draziziseixas.com/speaking/  Check out the Media and Innovation Lab (MIL) at the University of Miami School of Medicine: https://med.miami.edu/programs/mil  See Dr. Seixas featured in the official 2020 Cell Press “100 inspiring Black scientists in America”: https://crosstalk.cell.com/blog/100-inspiring-black-scientists-in-america  Check out Dr. Seixas' research timeline as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Population Health and Psychiatry at NYU Langone: https://med.nyu.edu/faculty/azizi-a-seixas

Dr. Azizi Seixas has an impressive bio, but the most extraordinary thing about him is his passion and his purpose.   Dr. Seixas (Say-shas) is an innovator, scientist, thought leader, and technologist. He was voted top 100 most inspiring Black Scientists in America by Cell Press. Currently, he acts as Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science and the Director of the Media and Innovation Lab at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He is also the Associate Director for the Center for Translational Sleep and Circadian Sciences (TSCS) and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Population Health and Psychiatry at NYU Langone. He studies artificial intelligence and technology with the intention of revolutionizing healthcare systems. Growing up in inner-city Jamaica, Dr. Seixas got his driven attitude from his hard-working single mother who earned a college, then Master's degree while working full-time. His passion came from his force-of-nature grandmother, who taught him to question the status quo. “The two things in life that level off human beings are death and education,” she told young Azizi. Motivated to create a more equitable future for all people, he decided to pursue medicine. Where does your passion come from? When it comes to the tension between faith and science, Dr. Seixas insists this is a false dichotomy. Steadfast in his faith and belief in people, he uses his pursuit of excellence in health and technology as a tool to help underserved communities get the healthcare they need.  Despite the common belief that faith and business are in competition with one another, Dr. Seixas encourages us to use one to serve the other. How can you use your entrepreneurial skills, innate talents and spiritual purpose to drive your mission forward? Innovation is more than just technology. When we think about innovation, we usually think about technology-What apps are trending, new ways to communicate or share files, and creative ways to work online. But Dr. Seixas reminds us that innovation is about so much more than that! Innovative thinking is fresh and creative, making complex things simpler and more accessible. Dr. Seixas spends his career teaching young innovators to think about the communities they're serving and how to most efficiently show up for them.  What systems can be developed to make healthcare available in their area? What difficulties are they facing that you can create solutions for? And what products or technologies can be produced to serve those needs? Dr. Seixas will inspire you to take an innovative look at your own business, ultimately helping you provide more value to your clients. Quotes “I have this burning desire to improve the lives of the have-nots, and to ensure that they can have better health outcomes and live a happy life.” “We're trying to reimagine academic medicine and health. We're doing this by reimagining healthcare by considering education, ensuring research leads us to comprehensive causes of disease, making delivery systems work for people, and creating next-level solutions.” “Find what you're here to do. Be passionate about it and work unceasingly so that it's not about you, it's for the betterment of others. It so happens that science and medicine are the vehicles through which I can do that.” “I believe that everyone is super talented, everyone is special and unique. There just aren't enough people breathing happiness, joy and love into these individuals.” “In order for you to have a purpose-driven life, it must be steeped in excellence so that people can reap the benefits of your work.” “It's a false tension, where science and faith are inadmissible. They go hand in hand. My purpose is driven by what I'm here to do.” “We imagine a world where instead of going to your physician once or twice a year, we want to shift home as being the primary place where health is done. We want to create infrastructure to provide personalized treatments. We want more prevention, better prevention, and lower costs.” “Instead of thinking about underserved communities last or not at all, we can roll out programs and studies to look immediately at people across different socioeconomic strata.”   “When we think about innovation, we think tech. But innovation can be many things! Innovation can mean an innovative practice to increase access to care, making complex things simple. That's what we're doing.” Links mentioned in this episode: Visit Dr. Seixas' website: https://draziziseixas.com/  Hire Dr. Seixas to speak, giving your audience an inspiring vision of the future of health: https://draziziseixas.com/speaking/  See Dr. Seixas featured in the official 2020 Cell Press “100 inspiring Black scientists in America”: https://crosstalk.cell.com/blog/100-inspiring-black-scientists-in-america  Check out Dr. Seixas' research timeline as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Population Health and Psychiatry at NYU Langone: https://med.nyu.edu/faculty/azizi-a-seixas

Founding Dean at Jefferson College of Population Health, Dr. David Nash, recently co-authored a book entitled "How Covid Crashed The System: A Guide To Fixing American Health Care", in which he and Charles Wohlforth draw parallels between flying a plane and delivering healthcare services. Leaning into the analogy, they liken the American healthcare system to an airplane crash – and they're the post-crash investigators searching for the black box. The first half of the book describes to readers what was found in the black box of our healthcare system, while the second half presents the authors' report about how we might fix this mess and get the plane back in the air. In this episode, David joins The Christensen Institute's Ann Somers Hogg to discuss insights about the fault lines in American healthcare; how the pandemic shone a spotlight on the challenges that were already present long before March of 2020; and steps that we can take – including a more aggressive approach to tackling drivers of health, realigning incentives, and rethinking medical education – to address the multiple system failures in our current healthcare system.

One of the silver linings of the pandemic has, in fact, been, the expansion of telehealth services and virtual care delivery. The pandemic has also accelerated the healthcare industry's transition from fee-for-service to value-based care. The continued growth of telehealth is fueled by providing incentives for care delivery in the lowest cost settings, identifying and interacting with highest-risk individuals before disease onset, managing care teams with more efficient workflows, and taking advantage of digital remote technologies. Virtual care is an easy and cost-effective path to achieve value-based care, thereby improving health outcomes and patient satisfaction across a broader population of patients. Our guest this week, is Dr. Carrie Nelson, the Chief Medical Officer for Amwell, a leading digital care and telemedicine company.  Dr. Nelson is a seasoned physician leader committed to healthcare transformation. She has demonstrated success in innovation and change management, physician engagement, solution development and deployment, value-based care, managing and coaching other leaders and delivering results.  Before joining Amwell as Chief Medical Officer and President of their Amwell Medical Group, she served as the Senior Vice President and CMO for Population Health and Health Outcomes at Advocate Aurora Health.  She also served as the Chief Clinical Officer for Advocate Physician Partners, a benchmark organization known internationally for delivering value-based care in collaboration with about 5000 employed and independent physician practices. With more than 28 years' experience as a Family Medicine provider, Dr. Nelson is an innovative physician leader with a proven track in quality improvement, patient safety and population health.

On this episode of the Pursuit of Health Podcast we return to the issue of healthcare economics with our guest, Ms. Andrea Zalusky. She brings over a decade of experience in the field of healthcare administration, with a particular focus as of late on the transition from a “Fee-for-Service” (FFS) to a “Value-based care” (VBC) approach to the financing of medical care. She explains that, like doctors, she has engaged in this work because she wanted to help as many people as possible become and stay healthy. With a Masters Degree in Public Health from Columbia after studying Global and Health Policy at Johns Hopkins University, Ms. Zalusky has worked in the northeast from New York to New Jersey to establish a consistent approach to healthcare. Through her work she remains intent on improving the health and well-being of the populations that live in these areas.Ms. Zalusky is  currently leading value-based care operations for Optum Care in the New York and New Jersey region, focused on supporting physicians, hospitals, and post-acute care facilities be successful in these programs.  Prior to Optum, she worked at CareMount Health Solutions where she managed operational programs focused on reducing readmissions in partnership with major hospital systems. Prior to these operations focused roles, she also had time with both Evolent Health and other consulting firms, where she  gained experience with population health program implementation and Value-based care models all across the US - working with physician groups, hospitals and Accountable Care Organizations to help them be successful in this new model of care.  Ms. Zalusky takes our audience through some of the details behind the concepts of Population Health and Value-based payment systems in a way that is enlightening and reassuring. She explains some of the hurdles and successes along the way and shares her ultimate goal of finding a balance that allows for the achievement of 4 crucial elements to a well functioning healthcare system in the U.S.. Along the way she emphasizes the sentiment that  “Our system is indeed broken and the people deserve better.” Ms. Zalusky explains that this venture towards Value-based payments has been in the works for years. It has required persistence, legislation and time to finally get off the ground. Though she is honest that we have a long way to go, she contends that there is no turning back to a Fee-for-Service system. She reassures us that the key to a successful transition from FFS to VBC over the next several years is to work in partnership with clinicians so that they can best implement their evidence-based knowledge to the betterment of everyone.We look forward to your feedback on this and any prior episodes.

Shankman welcome. The episode of Faster Than Normal today is a PhD. We seem to be doing a lot of doctoral candidates lately. I don't know why doctoral candidates seem to get diagnosed, but maybe cuz they're smart enough to know that something's not, uh, normal, like other people. And they're like, Hey, let's figure that out. But either way we get another one here. Her name is Skye Rapson and Skye's an academic coach with over seven years of experience working at adult education, she has studied in various fields, including psychology, sociology. and public health and is now a doctoral candidate in population health in New Zealand. So we are a long way from home today. She was diagnosed with ADHD at the start of her doctorate. And since then, she's dedicated time to researching and disseminating ADHD studies, founding unconventional organization in 2020 to provide ADHD, adults and managers with strength based neurodiverse friendly ADHD, coaching and workshop. Skye, welcome.  [00:01:35] Skye: Hi. Yeah. Great to be here.  [00:01:37] Peter: Good to have you here. So ADHD, you know, it, it's interesting. We had, we have there's someone else from New Zealand who we've had on the podcast. Um, she runs, uh, oh God, what's the name, but neuro neuro it's line of t-shirts neuro… Oh, I'm spacing on it now. I have one of them. It's awesome. Awesome shirt. I'll remember it, but, and we'll put it in the liner notes, but yeah. Um, long way from home. So good to have you, you were diagnosed at the beginning of your PhD, uh, beginning of your doctoral research. Yeah.  [00:02:04] Skye: Yeah, no, I was diagnosed. I actually thought I had, um, dyslexia. I went in, um, postmasters. Um, so I'd done my masters and. It was good, but it was tough. And, um, right at the end, I thought I should probably go and see if I, if I might have dyslexia. I know it, you know, it's something that my family have talked about potentially having. Um, and I came out, um, several weeks later with an ADHD. Uh, you know, you probably have ADHD and a couple of other things as well.  [00:02:30] Peter: So you were surprised you were surprised at that.  [00:02:32] Skye: Yeah, it, it made a lot of sense. I mean, you wrote out, read out all the different things I'd studied, you know, tell me you have ADHD without telling me you have ADHD. I kept getting to the end of a degree and being like, well, you know, this might not be for me. I think I need to switch to a totally different area and learn a totally different subject. Um, and so, um, you know, in hindsight it made a lot of sense and I learned about ADHD, but I hadn't put the pieces together in, in. Fit my life.  [00:02:58] Peter: Amazing. What, tell me about what it was sort of like sort of the wake up call once you were diagnosed, what sort of started to make sense? [00:03:05] Skye: Yeah. So in terms of what made sense, I, I really focused on understanding why I was burning out because what I was experiencing was a period, you know, up until that point, I'd done a year generally at a time, you know? And so I would, I would study something really intensely for a year, work on it, stay up all night, you know, do weekends. And then I would burn out and I would need a break. And then I would be like, well, I guess maybe this isn't the subject for me and I'd come back and I would do something else. And that was very much how my ADHD was, was manifesting.  [00:03:39] Peter: Now I believe that we had a, another PhD on the podcast named Rachel Cotton. She was one of our first interviews and she always talked about how, uh, she thought it was perfectly normal to live on, you know, uh, 14 caffeine tablets away. Yeah. , you know, um, But no I get that. So, so talk about, um, after you got diagnosed and, and things sort of changing, what, how did your priority shift? [00:04:01] Skye: Yeah, so, so one of the first things I actually did was I, um, I created a community in my university of other people who were postgraduate, um, who were also neuro diverse. I had worked in adult education for a really long time. Um, I'd done a lot of tutoring in universities and I'd sort of told myself when I started the PhD, I'm not gonna do that. Cuz you know, I, I tended to take on too many classes and it was distracting from actually doing the writing. Um, and then when I found out I had ADHD, I was like, oh, but like, you know, one group won't hurt. And so I started I started a group and um, and started connecting with people and learning as much as possible, not just from the research, which. You know, later on writing about, but the very first thing I started to do was to talk to other people. Who'd had those same experiences.  [00:04:48] Peter: And what did you find out?  [00:04:49] Skye: I found out that people were kind of frustrated with the university system, um, in terms of, you know, how it fit and how it worked with how they worked. And I think that was really, um, really helpful for me because it meant I didn't spend too long sitting in that space of feeling like it was just me, which so many people with ADHD, I know had that feeling because I immediately was launched into the space of, oh, we're all experiencing these struggles. [00:05:15] Peter: And it was sort of one of those lessons. I remember sort of the same thing when I finally got diagnosed, everything started to make sense. Part of me was pissed off because, you know, I, I, I I'd spent so much energy. Mm-hmm over the course of my life fighting things that, that, you know, swimming upstream when I didn't really have mm-hmm I'd just gone with the flow. It would've been that much easier. [00:05:31] Skye: Yeah. Yeah, no, it's definitely, it's definitely, um, a tough thing. And, you know, there was a little bit. Sadness as well. I think to look back on my more was at that point, my twenties, um, and realize that, yeah, it had just been a different, if I'd known a slightly different way of working, it wasn't that it had to be hugely different, but just some adjustments, it could have been so much easier. [00:05:55] Peter: So let's talk about, uh, unconventional organization. Tell me about it.  [00:05:58] Skye: Yeah. So, um, I started on unconventional organization in 2020, um, after I'd, you know, worked with the universities, I started working with schools and then when, uh, COVID hit and we all had to go back to our homes. I was looking for an opportunity to keep doing what I really loved to do, which is connect with people and work with people. Um, and I found ADHD coaching. And so I started doing that alongside at that point, um, writing articles. Cause I really wanted to learn more if I was gonna do this kind of space properly, I wanted to learn about the research. And so I, um, started writing articles and challenging myself to put them up every week as a way of, of, you know, keeping myself accountable for that. And, um, those two things sort of ballooned into, into what we have now with, um, you know, people who are training to become coaches with us, um, who also have ADHD. And then also having that, um, that research space as well.  [00:06:51] Peter: And what did you, so tell me what, one of the interesting things I always, I always ask, what did you find when you started conversing with other people and being like, Hey, we share the same brain. Right? What kind of trends did you, did you find?  [00:07:02] Skye: I found that people were working a lot harder than people realize people with ADHD. I, I found that a lot of the people that I spoke to would come to me and they'd say, I'm not getting enough done. I need to, you know, and even the people that, you know, the coaches would often come to us as well. And, you know, say I haven't been, I haven't been achieving at the level that I want to, and then I'd ask them what they're doing, because that's part of coaching. We get very specific about what your day looks like and people were spending a lot of time trying to work. And, and in that way they were expending a lot of energy. It just wasn't necessarily, um, giving them the outcome that they were looking for.  [00:07:40] Peter: Right. And one of the things you learn is that, is that it's sort of a self limiting, uh, prophecy, because you wind up expending all this energy. You're not getting the results. So you try harder and it's still the same thing. Right. So you, so you, you're going down this rabbit hole and you can't win.  [00:07:53] Skye: Yeah, no, exactly. And then, and then the worst part, you know, at least for us was that people would say, oh, well then I don't deserve to have a break. I don't deserve to have fun. And so we'd end up in this sort of self-fulfilling cycle of just, you know, not getting the dopamine, working hard, feeling like you don't deserve to get a break. So you definitely don't get the Domine and you're continuing to keep trying. [00:08:13] Peter: Right. And so I guess one of the best lessons there is change the way you try.  [00:08:18] Skye: Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Yeah. And, and it's about, you know, we think about it in terms of experimentation. We often say, you know, if something doesn't work or it doesn't work for you, we just keep, we just keep adapting it. We just, we just check it out and go. That's interesting, that doesn't work. And then, you know, in, in the case of working with the coach, you come back and you say, Hey, that doesn't work for me. And they go, that's fine. Like we can adjust it.  [00:08:41] Peter: Right. What would you have told your 15 year old self, if you knew, if you knew that and what you know now?  [00:08:46] Skye: That's a really good question. I think I would tell my 15 year old self.

What I was not expecting was for her to share so openly and courageously about the way substance use problems have impacted her own family. It was a powerful conversation with a powerful voice in the field. It never fails to astonish me: the scope and reach of addiction into so many people's lives. Reading the stats is one thing, but to experience how it touches so many people, again and again, is truly striking.Ayana talks about her longstanding interest in integrating spirituality in addiction treatment, while simultaneously respecting people's values and beliefs, and doing so in a responsible and effective way. We discuss her work on harm reduction, racial justice, and health equity. She helps us think through how to work effectively with the social and structural determinants of health. And, we tackle the controversial question: what's the point of spirituality in the medical treatment of addiction in the first place?Ayana Jordan, MD PhD, is a renowned expert in addiction and other mental health conditions in underserved populations.

Relentless Health Value
Encore! EP295: The Not Entirely New but Definitely Improved Way to Measure Primary Care, With Rebecca Etz, PhD

Relentless Health Value

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 25, 2022 31:21


I wanted to resurface this episode because when it originally aired over a year ago, the topic may have been ever so slightly ahead of its time. Look, here we are right now with everybody trying to do three big things relative to measuring PCP (primary care provider) performance: Come up with a fair measure for PCP performance. Account for diverse populations with diverse risks so that some docs don't get dinged because their patient populations have lots of comorbidities or behavioral health challenges or live in food deserts, or any one of the other social determinants of health. Not make measuring performance a total procedural nightmare. Right? We want fair measures, we want to account for equity issues essentially, and we want this whole measurement fandango to be as easy as possible. Enter Rebecca Etz, PhD, and The Larry A. Green Center with a really well-validated “instrument,” as she calls it, to measure primary care performance. I can think of more than one PCP frankly right off the top of my head who would be thrilled to be measured using this methodology. Even more so because it's one thing that's simple and not a jumble of numerators with various mix-and-match denominators. PCPs are really important to population health. Primary care is the foundation of any well-functioning health system, I am sure many listening to this podcast know well. For the Triple Aim to happen, patients really need access to robust primary care. This has been affirmed by almost anyone who looks into it. And yet, in this country, our system sort of anemically supports our primary care colleagues. As a general statement, poking and prodding and procedures are compensated at a far higher rate than anything requiring cognitive services. What a PCP or a pediatrician mainly does all day is really cognitive. It's listening and thinking and counseling and coordinating. But here is maybe an underappreciated point: If we're going to measure PCP performance, then we need the right measures to measure that performance. You might be doing this measurement as a basis for incentives or maybe for continuous improvement programs. Either way, if you don't have the right measures, then maybe great primary care is under-rewarded or your continuous improvement process is counterproductive—you're incenting the wrong things, you get the wrong activity. And to add to that, PCPs (ie, practices) can spend upwards of $40,000 a year of uncompensated time trying to add and subtract and tote up the difference in all these varied and potentially inapplicable measurement standards coming at them from all manner of directions. My guest in this healthcare podcast is Rebecca Etz, PhD. Dr. Etz and the team over at The Larry A. Green Center have worked hard to create a set of 11 performance measures for primary care. These measures went through the wringer as far as their creation and validation. These 11 measures take into account what patients want, what primary care clinicians (including pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and others) think is most important and possible to provide, and what payers want to pay for. These 11 measures are aligned across the three stakeholders, and they are actionable. Rebecca Etz, PhD, is associate professor of family medicine and codirector of The Larry A. Green Center, which is in Richmond, Virginia, at the Virginia Commonwealth University. You can learn more at green-center.org.   Rebecca S. Etz, PhD, is an associate professor of family medicine and population health at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and codirector of The Larry A. Green Center—Advancing Primary Health Care for the Public Good. Dr. Etz has deep expertise in qualitative research methods and design, primary care measures, practice transformation, and engaging stakeholders. Her career has been dedicated to learning the heart and soul of primary care through three main lines of inquiry: (1) bridging the gap between the business of medicine and the lived experience of the human condition, (2) making visible the principles and mechanisms upon which the unique strength of primary care is based, and (3) exposing the unintended, often damaging consequences of policy and transformation efforts applied to primary care but not informed by primary care concepts. As a member of the VCU Department of Family Medicine and Population Health and previous codirector of the ACORN practice-based research network, Dr. Etz has been the principal investigator of several federal and foundation grants, contracts, and pilots, all directed toward making the pursuit of health a humane experience. Recent research activities have included studies in primary care measures, behavioral health, simulation modeling, care team models, and adaptive use of health technologies. Dr. Etz currently leads the fielding of a weekly survey regarding the response to and impact of COVID-19 on US primary care practices. She also serves on the National Academies of Medicine consensus study, “Implementing High-Quality Primary Care.” 04:58 Why is primary care one of the “best-kept secrets” of better health outcomes? 09:45 “Measures are a form of communication.” 09:58 “If the way that you are assessed does not actually match up with the work you do or what you find to be important, it's pretty demoralizing.” 12:48 “It is the outcome of healthcare, but it is not the same thing as quality.” 17:18 “It creates a financial incentive to hit a target by any means necessary.” 18:53 “We incentivize people to have good outcomes, and what that means is that electronic medical records are no longer simply databases that tell us what the health of the population is. They are databases that tell us what is the optimal picture that a clinician is able to paint of their patients.” 21:54 “Primary care is a relational field.” 23:02 “How does this relate to cost and utilization?” 27:45 How has the measure of PCPs in the time of COVID held up? 28:03 What measure performs worse in the time of COVID? 29:59 EP270 with Dave Chase and EP272 with Guy Culpepper, MD.  You can learn more at green-center.org.   Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp “Measures are a form of communication.” Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp “If the way that you are assessed does not actually match up with the work you do or what you find to be important, it's pretty demoralizing.” Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp “It is the outcome of healthcare, but it is not the same thing as quality.” Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp “It creates a financial incentive to hit a target by any means necessary.” Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp “Primary care is a relational field.” Rebecca Etz of @GreenCenterOrg discusses #primarycare performance on this week's #healthcarepodcast. #healthcare #podcast #digitalhealth #healthtech #pcp How has the measure of PCPs in the time of COVID held up?
