    Who Cares About the Caregiver?

    Who Cares About the Caregiver?

    In this episode, host Chris LaVictoire Mahai sits down with Tia Newcomer, CEO of CaringBridge, to discuss those who are critical to the health and wellness of our inner circles and broader communities yet far too often left out of the conversation: caregivers.

    Together, Tia and Chris unpack questions and stories that illuminate the unpaid caregiver experience today: Who are they? What barriers and burdens do they face? What value, seen and unseen, do they provide? And, as our title suggests, who in healthcare truly cares about them? 
    New this season!  Each episode features consumer voices and testimonials based on their experiences, allowing us to truly orient our conversations from the “outside-in.” Thank you to those who shared their experiences with us.

    Re-Engaging in Trust: The Missing Ingredient to Fixing Healthcare

    Re-Engaging in Trust: The Missing Ingredient to Fixing Healthcare

    "I believe that companies have to make money. The issue is that we put unicorn status and money above everything else in healthcare, we don't reward breakthrough outcomes the way we do unicorn status. And that is an issue because the way our system is built today, it is a win lose. It is a zero-sum game. And that pits me against you, stakeholders against stakeholders, peers against peers. And as long as we think that way, relationships are a more of a tug of war than compadre status."

    In this episode Deborah McMahon, SVP of Aveus talks with Dr. Jan Berger about the recent release of  her fifth book Re-Engaging in Trust: The Missing Ingredient to Fixing Healthcare. This book integrates five years of primary research along with secondary research that leads readers to a set of concrete recommendations that can help move the needle positively around trust and outcomes.

    Dr. Jan Berger is a 3-sector healthcare senior executive, board executive, author, and keynote speaker. She's presently the CEO of Health Intelligence Partners, a global healthcare consulting company, and she sits on corporate boards, both in the US and internationally.

    Medication Management Strategies to Improve Health and Reduce Costs

    Medication Management Strategies to Improve Health and Reduce Costs

    “Let's reorient to the goals that matter for patients and then make sure the drugs and metrics are appropriate. I think that once we do that, we'll stop chasing adherence and Stars and start getting more upstream in terms of indication, effectiveness and safety.”

    In this episode Deborah McMahon, SVP of Aveus talks with Dr. Terry McInnis about how medication management strategies aid in reducing costs and improving health. In a paper she coauthored in 2018, she highlighted that there's roughly half a trillion dollars in waste that can be attributed to non-optimized drug therapies. Deb and Terry talk about addressing some of the upstream root issues in the patient medication experience and how those can lead to improvements in downstream outcomes. 

    Dr. Terry McInnis is an industry leader and consultant. She is President and Founder of Blue Thorn Inc Healthcare Consulting and has led engagements with more than 100 companies and health systems, to help them succeed in an era of precision medicine and value-based care.  She is a nationally recognized expert in medication management and successful drug costs value strategies. Terry serves as a consultant to Arene and as well as serving on our Medecision Advisory Board.
