A practical podcast on the business of healthcare w/ hosts Don Lee and Shahid Shah. The premise behind #HCBiz is that we can't "just innovate". Sure, you may have a great idea, an all-star team and execute flawlessly, but if you don't understand the complex dynamics of the healthcare business you'll never get traction. We'll identify the issues that impede change, explain why they exist and find ways to work with them, through them, or around them. In short, we'll help you create space for innovation in healthcare through technology (HealthIT | HIT | Digital Health) and workflow. We'll also explore health policy, administration and the psychology behind it all. Finally, we help you align your ideas to business incentives, market them to healthcare leaders and get the sale.

    Protecting and Extending the Life of PPE with Engineered Controls

    An #HCBiz Brief: Given the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in our hospitals due to COVID-19 and the elevated risks our medical professionals are facing every day, I wanted to share a tool I came across at an infection control conference last year that might help. This is a short episode about an engineered control that prevents infective aerosols, sprays, and splash-back generated by suctioning.

    Making Value-Based Care Work in Rural Health

    Today’s episode is about how the Rural Risk-Free Solution helps rural hospitals and health systems take on risk faster to achieve value-based care. The methodology is a community / population health approach. By providing analytics on care metrics, nurse-led and team based care, and population health programs, you can improve outcomes for both communities and the hospitals. Today we have Lynn Barr here from Caravan Health to explain how it works.

    Headwinds Impacting the Shift to Value-Based Care with Kyle Swarts and Dr. Matt Lambert

    Headwinds Impacting the Shift to Value-Based Care with Kyle Swarts and Dr. Matt Lambert

    Health systems have been working hard to lay the foundation for taking on a larger case mix of value-based contracts. 75% of health systems surveyed said they are ready to accept downside risk in the next two years, up from 42% in 2015. As health systems are discovering, value-based care reimbursement is more complicated and requires a new level of specificity in documentation. The question is, are health systems really ready to take on downside risk while continuing to manage FFS contracts?

This podcast is not just for healthcare professionals!

I am not a healthcare professional, but I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend... someone who sometimes feels invincible to the world around me. The truth is that none of us are exempt from the preventable illnesses that we so often hear others dealing with. The infection control series has been eye-opening for me, and I will continue to listen and educate myself on the healthcare side of things. I look forward to learning more with each new series.
