Last Thursday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the latest Covid surge in San Francisco, which was fueled by the highly transmissible Omicron variant, was on a downward trend, having peaked in early January. This welcome news comes as San Francisco shifts its thinking on Covid. According to the city's Department of Public Health, the goal is not to stop Covid infections, but rather to focus on preventing worse outcomes like severe illness, hospitalization and death. We'll get an update from Dr. Naveena Bobba, the department's deputy director, about how the city is handling Covid and how San Francisco's approach could influence state policy.

We have an awesome show for you this week! Jennifer Anderson from Kids Eat in Color is here. She is talking about all things feeding kids! Jennifer started out on Instagram wanting to connect with other moms who were struggling to feed their kids a well rounded diet. Her community grew and so did her knowledge, and before she knew it she had 1.6 million followers!  How did my kid become a picky eater despite my best effort with baby-led weaning? Jennifer drops a truth bomb on us…its a myth. Laci wonders why her kids are picky eaters and it might just have something to do with genetics. We love Jennifer's explanation of this! What is an extremely picky eater? Crystal tells the story about her daughter not eating anything at preschool for a year! Jennifer explains how to help a child branch out from the few foods they will eat to be able to adapt to new foods. One day they like a food, the next they don't, the foods can't touch, the foods need to be mixed…help!  I had a great eater and now they are two and won't eat anything! Do you have a healthy foundation? It starts with taking the pressure off of your kid. Instead, focus on coming together and giving your kid the food or foods they will eat. Keep the pressure low by having the new food on the table. It's there, they see it, and eventually, they might try it! What is an age appropriate amount of time at the table? Hint - it's probably short. Jennifer's tip is to start with a timer. Set it to a small amount of time and move the timer up to find the max attention span. When you're done, you're done! The dreaded snacking… Ellen discusses her struggles with snacks at home, what she offers, and how this interferes with mealtime. What's the best solution? Jennifer breaks this down… its a cultural thing in the U.S. and in fact too much snacking can interfere with their natural hunger cues. Tune in to hear her best tips!  Jennifer talks about the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program and how this public health initiative is helping families thrive. She addresses some common misconceptions about WIC and how this program can be best utilized.  What is a food desert? Simply put, it is a lack of access to a variety of healthy foods. This can be urban or rural. Jennifer breaks down the dynamics that make up a food desert and explains the misconceptions around poverty.  Everyone is sick. It's that time of the year. How do I keep my kid as healthy as possible? Jennifer talks about how important hydration is. She explains that kids will lose their appetite when they are sick, but keeping them hydrated is key. Their appetite will come back. Ease back into their normal diet and avoid any special diet or new foods.

With canceled plans, restaurants shuttering and talk of school shutdowns, the experience of the Covid pandemic can sometimes feel like two steps forward, one step back. And it's not helped by changing (and sometimes confusing) guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the lack of key resources like at-home rapid tests, and the misinformation that abounds from Dr. Google.So in this conversation, Kara Swisher turns to two experts to answer our burning questions about the latest wave: Dr. Ashish Jha is a physician and the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, and Emily Oster is an economist at Brown who has been collecting data on how schools respond to the pandemic.Jha and Oster answer Kara's questions on everything from medical misinformation and the Biden administration's pandemic responses to the costs of rapid testing. They speak in detail about schools and the effects the pandemic has had on the mental health of parents and children. And they discuss what's needed for the country to prepare for the next variant, whenever it arrives.You can find transcripts (posted midday) and more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.

Scientists Are Working On A Universal COVID Vaccine As the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spike around the U.S., there are scientists working not on variant-specific boosters, but on a vaccine that might cover every possible strain, past and future. Called universal vaccines, they require a fundamentally different approach from a shot that would target Delta, Omicron, or any other variant. Instead, a universal vaccine would need to train the body to respond to something every variant has in common—or to fill in the blanks of any possible mutations. Vox senior science reporter Umair Irfan reports on the difficult path and ongoing work toward such a vaccine, and why the immune system's T cells and B cells, more than neutralizing antibodies, will dictate our long-term future with the virus. Plus how an undersea eruption near Tonga was one of the most documented volcanic explosions in history, new research assesses the vast toll of global antibiotic resistance, and more stories from the week.   New Research Links Epstein-Barr Virus to Multiple Sclerosis A group of scientists at Harvard University says they have made a major breakthrough in understanding multiple sclerosis. For years, they have been testing out a hypothesis that the Epstein-Barr virus causes multiple sclerosis, a chronic and incurable disease of the nervous system. (Epstein-Barr is the contagious virus responsible for mononucleosis.) Researchers analyzed a dataset of 10 million active-duty military members. They found that service members who contracted the Epstein-Barr virus were 32 times more likely to later be diagnosed with MS. The research was published in the journal Science. Ira is joined by Dr. Alberto Ascherio, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in Boston, Massachusetts, to discuss his team's research and its broader implications.   Saliva Sharing Might Help Kids Identify Their Closest Relationships How do little kids understand who has a close relationship with them? One of the clues they use to figure it out is by noticing who they're swapping saliva with. The closest bonds are with the people who are giving them kisses, sharing their forks, and wiping their drool. Those are the findings of a recent study published in the journal Science. Ira is joined by Ashley Thomas, the study's lead author and a post doctoral fellow in the brain and cognitive sciences department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.   Big Agriculture Schools Face Increasing Donor Conflicts Of Interest A major donor to the University of Illinois wondered what the heck was up. Robb Fraley, a top Monsanto executive at the time, emailed the dean of the agriculture college in 2018 complaining about a professor saying publicly that one of his company's flagship products was causing widespread damage to crops. Monsanto was also a major donor. Fraley accused the professor of being “biased” and “prone to exaggeration.” U of I officials had spent years courting Fraley, and they had listened to him before when he'd complained about a lack of progress on an endowed chair he'd funded. But the 2018 episode highlights potentially thorny situations for public universities, which have cultivated powerful agricultural corporations as donors while public funding has stagnated. Dicamba posed a particularly critical issue to Fraley. After all, he was as responsible as anyone for leading modern agriculture into using lab-designed seeds that could withstand spraying from weedkillers. That Monsanto-branded Roundup Ready pairing of biotechnology with glyphosate herbicide revolutionized grain farming around the world. When glyphosate lost its punch — after weeds grew resistant to Roundup — Monsanto shifted to teaming different genetically modified seeds with the dicamba herbicide. But farmers who'd not adopted the new genetically engineered seeds started complaining about “dicamba drift” and of seeing their crops perish from the effects of the herbicide migrating to their fields. So when U of I weed scientist Aaron Hager spoke about a controversy as big as any in commercial agriculture in ways that didn't sit well with Fraley, the university benefactor let the school know about his displeasure. Read the rest at sciencefriday.com.   Growing Plants—And Providing Solar Energy Food is one of our most basic needs. As the population of the world grows, we're going to need to grow more of it within the same amount of space. The United Nations estimates the world's population will grow by 2 billion people between now and 2050. Access to fresh food is already a problem in many countries, and will likely get worse with more mouths to feed. This is where the concept of agrivoltaics could create a massive change. This farming setup mixes water, energy, and plant growth all in one space. Solar panels collect energy from the sun's rays; underneath those panels is where the plants grow. The setup takes less water than the traditional way of farming, all-in-all creating a more sustainable way to grow food and create energy. Joining Ira to talk about the promise of agrivoltaics is Dr. Chad Higgins, associate professor of biological and ecological engineering at Oregon State University, in Corvallis, Oregon.

THE THESIS: The Party is erasing entire Covid patient databases, they are laundering “cases” and infections of injected people into the data of the “un-injected”, the FDA--a pharmagandist group--is aiding in the cover-up. But, God is watching.   THE SCRIPTURE:  Galatians 6: 7-10 7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

In fact, the FDA (meant to serve and protect public health) hired Justice Department lawyers and went to court to shield the pharmaceutical giant from having to reveal its data – for 55 years. . . . Fortunately, a judge ruled that the FDA and Pfizer would have to answer their FOIA requests. Among the first reports handed over by Pfizer was a “Cumulative Analysis of Post-authorization Adverse Event Reports” describing events reported to Pfizer up until February 2021. It reveals that the drug behemoth received more than 150,000 serious adverse event reports within three months of rolling out its COVID shot, but here we will focus on Table 6 of the data on pregnant and lactating women who received the shots in the first few months of the rollout, which began December 11. Most of these women would have been healthcare workers because that was who the first rounds of shots went to. As the clinical trials preceding the rollout excluded pregnant women, these would have been the first pregnant and lactating women to have ever received the “vaccines.” Table 6 states that of 270 “unique pregnancies” that were exposed to the “vaccine”, “no outcome was provided for 238 pregnancies.” This leaves 32 pregnancies with known outcomes. Pfizer's report states that there were 23 spontaneous abortions (miscarriages), two premature births with neonatal death, two spontaneous abortions with intrauterine death, one spontaneous abortion with neonatal death, and one pregnancy with “normal outcome.” That means that of 32 pregnancies with known outcome, 28 resulted in fetal death.

Have you hit a wall with Covid? We have.  The irrationality of the current policies and conversations surrounding Covid—guidelines that are coming from our public health authorities; rules coming from our schools and our workplaces; and information coming from our media—is making skeptics out of even the most compliant. What gives? Why do things seem so nonsensical? Who should we trust? How can we get back to normal—or at least some semblance of normal? And how can we do it responsibly and safely?  To answer these questions, we brought together three doctors who have been islands of sanity in a sea of misinformation and confusion.  Dr. Vinay Prasad is an associate professor of epidemiology at UCSF. Dr. Stefan Baral is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. And Dr. Lucy McBride is a practicing internist in Washington D.C., and author of a popular COVID-19 newsletter.

How should we respond to this record-breaking spike in COVID-19 cases? Dr. Kim Rhoads, who has been working on community-led responses since the beginning of the pandemic, says mixed messaging has created confusion. Instead, she tells people to base their behavior on how much virus is circulating — exercise more caution when case rates are high, including not rushing to get a test when you are feeling well but worried. She also reflects on the stigmatization of people who face high risks because of their jobs or living situations, and how privilege has led others to make riskier decisions than they should.

EP350: Employers Direct Contracting With Hospitals, in Real Life, With Katy Talento

Relentless Health Value

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 13, 2022 35:31


In this healthcare podcast, I'm talking about direct contracting IRL (in real life) with Katy Talento. This is a conversation that's more about the reality of direct contracting than the theory of direct contracting, and this was not an accident. So much of healthcare transformation is really easy to say and much harder to actually do. So … direct contracting. In the context we discuss in this episode, generally direct contracting means when an employer or their benefits consultant, more likely, hooks up with a provider organization, lots of times a hospital or a health system. Moving forward here, I'm just gonna say employer when I sort of really mean the employer and their TPA and their repricer, the constellation of consultants and other vendors that are working with the employer. So, just for simplicity, the employer says to the provider organization, “Hey, let's cut out the middleman here” (middleman likely being some insurance carrier). “I will just pay you directly, and it will be a win-win because no one is sucking out up to 15% to 20% right out of the middle, and also I'll steer my employees/patients/members your direction, which is great for us as a self-insured plan because money saved and also because I've done some quality analytics and I think you're relatively good at delivering care … so I'm happy to help my members find you.” The employer will, in general broad strokes, pay the provider organization some percentage over the Medicare rate for procedures or codes or bundles. By the way, the dollar amount over Medicare for the bundles or procedures or codes can vary depending on factors like what service line it is because, unlike RBP (reference-based pricing), direct contracting is a negotiation. It's a two-way deal. RBP, a lot of times, is the payer/employer deciding what they're gonna pay and then paying it—without sitting around a table with the provider figuring all this out together. So, if only from this one dimension, direct contracting is something that you'd think that hospitals/health systems/providers would be kind of into and up for. One thing that I didn't really understand before this conversation is that, if we're talking about an employer direct contracting with, say, a hospital, the list of direct-contracted procedures or codes or bundles might include pretty much all of the services that the hospital can perform; but, in general, the employer is only going to steer members there or make it financially attractive to go to the hospital for, for example, emergency or unavoidable procedures. Why? Because no employer wants patients going to the hospital for things that they could get a whole lot cheaper in an outpatient setting with no less quality. So, unless a hospital is willing to compete on price with other care settings, then an employer is not going to steer their members there. If you're a hospital, you might take this as a con. But, on the other hand, consider that if there's a few hospitals in the area, the general direction will be to go to the one with the direct contract. Furthermore, if a plan is gonna steer members, they're gonna steer them whether they have a direct contract with you or not. Katy makes one point early and often throughout this conversation. From a hospital perspective, doing a direct contract is and should be pretty easy. From an employer perspective, too, there should not be a lot of disruption or friction for employees. There doesn't need to be. Done right, it should be a win-win for the employer, provider, and, most of all, the patient who doesn't get stuck with high bills, balance bills, and lower-quality care than might be available to them through their benefits. Katy goes through the steps to create a direct contract and the challenges she has faced along the way. We also get into the wonderful world of payviders, so you could consider this an extension to the episode with Jeb Dunkelberger (EP348) from last month. My guest today, Katy Talento, started out as an infectious disease epidemiologist (which I did not realize). She ended up doing public health policy. She's worked on Capitol Hill for various senators and, in the last administration, as health policy lead. Katy is the CEO of AllBetter Health and works with the Health Rosetta organization. She is a benefits advisor for employers who are looking to create better health plans that reduce costs dramatically while, at the same time, improving benefits. I mean, you can only do that in healthcare, right?—where there's basically no relationship between price and quality. You can learn more at allbetter.health or contact Katy directly at katy@allbetter.health. Katy Talento is an infectious disease epidemiologist, a veteran health policy advisor, and healthcare consultant. She is CEO of AllBetter Health, an insurgent benefits advisory firm building innovative health plans for employers that are free of misaligned financial incentives. Katy served as the health policy lead in the White House on the Domestic Policy Council where her portfolio included public health issues such as eliminating domestic HIV/AIDS, ending secret healthcare prices, lowering prescription drug prices, expanding health IT interoperability, combating the opioids and other drug addiction crisis, and promoting bioethics in the life sciences. Katy has appeared on or been published in a number of media outlets, including CNN, Sky News, Newsmax, The New York Times, The Hill, The Morning Consult, RealClearPolitics, and others. Prior to her White House appointment, Katy served five U.S. Senators over a 15-year period, including as top health advisor and manager of legislative staff and oversight investigators. She also worked in the private sector helping multinational energy companies protect their global workforce from infectious diseases and on the research faculty at Georgetown University Medical School. Katy served as the director of speechwriting for the Republican National Committee and has written a number of published opinion pieces, Web copy, and video scripts. She spent two years as a Catholic nun and has worked with the poorest of the poor from East Africa to industrial Russia and inner-city America. Katy received a master of science degree in infectious disease epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health and an undergraduate degree in sociology from the University of Virginia. 05:21 Why are employers direct contracting? 06:37 “When you directly contract … you don't have to chase patients.” 07:43 Why the growing 501(r) movement is making direct contracting more enticing. 10:16 “They're going to be giving better rates, whether they want to or not.” 11:46 “I think it's the future hospitals want, too.” 12:58 What is the primary driver of increased healthcare costs? 14:56 “The fixed costs that the hospitals … have may not be so fixed.” 15:08 “A hospital should not be a freestanding profit center. … The hospital is a failure of healthcare.

Omicron Variant Drives Winter COVID Surge The United States set a global record this week, recording roughly one million new coronavirus tests in a single day. The current surge in cases is mostly driven by Omicron. The highly contagious variant accounted for about 95% of new cases last week. And, to top it all off, tests are in short supply, the CDC changed its quarantine guidelines, and some schools have returned to remote learning. Virologist Angela Rasmussen joins Ira to help make sense of the latest deluge of Omicron news. Rasmussen is a research scientist at VIDO-InterVac, the University of Saskatchewan's vaccine research institute in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.   Is Omicron A Less Severe Variant Of COVID-19? Over the past few weeks, a common refrain has popped up in reports about the Omicron variant of COVID-19: The variant seems to be “less severe” than earlier forms of the virus. But as hospitals fill up with coronavirus patients and infections skyrocket, there's some context needed to understand what the full impact of a less-severe variant might be. An important recent discovery sheds light on the severity of the variant, finding that at least in hamsters, Omicron spares the lungs in a way earlier variants have not. This infection appears to be predominantly in the upper respiratory system, largely in the mouth, throat, and windpipe. But even though a fewer percentage of cases may experience severe disease than with earlier variants, the sheer volume may still threaten hospital capacities. Joining Ira to talk about the severity of the Omicron variant in the body is Dr. Michael Diamond, virologist, and immunologist at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Also joining the conversation to talk about Omicron's toll on the healthcare system is Dr. Saskia Popescu, infectious disease epidemiologist and infection prevention expert at the University of Arizona College of Public Health in Phoenix, Arizona.   How Christmas Bird Counts Help Shape Science This winter marks the 122nd annual Christmas Bird Count, a project of the National Audubon Society, which is self-described as the longest-running community science project in the country. What started as a few dozen volunteers in 1900 has grown to tens of thousands of birders, spreading out in 15-mile circles across the country to count every bird insight on one midwinter day. From this record, scientists can draw insights about everything from the abundance of species to how species' ranges are shifting from year-to-year and decade-to-decade. Ira talks to Audubon's bird count director Geoff LeBaron, and director of quantitative science Nicole Michel about the value of the annual community science project and some of their more joyful winter sightings. Plus, how the data provide clues to which birds are most likely to adapt as human habitat disruption and climate change continue.
