Reducing Mental Health Stigma With Evidence-Based Practices, Language
Americans are experiencing a spike in mental health diagnoses. However, even as mental health challenges become more visible and widespread, mental health stigmas remain. Lana Seiler, LCSW, primary therapist at All Points North Lodge, shares how healthcare stakeholders can combat mental health stigmas and encourage treatment among patients, within their own communities, and within themselves.
Improving Health Equity for Black Mothers by Lowering Preeclampsia Risk
The lack of health equity in the current healthcare system is starkly evident in maternal care. Black patients who are pregnant are at higher risk than their White counterparts for a highly preventable disease called preeclampsia. Joanne Armstrong, MD, executive medical director and chief medical officer for women’s health and genomics at CVS Health, explains how provider and payer organizations can improve patient education to combat care disparities in maternal care.
Addressing Health Equity In Light of COVID-19: Policy, Data, Culture
As the nation emerges from the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare professionals can work to keep health equity as central to their strategies going forward. Sara Heath, managing editor at Xtelligent Healthcare Media, reviews how to define health equity, how the pandemic impacted the industrywide discussion around this topic, and how steps that organizations can take toward improving health equity.
Healthcare Strategies will return with Season 3 on September 6, 2021.
Empowering Nurse Practitioners to Negotiate with Payers, Take on Risk
Nurse practitioners are trained not to take risks in care delivery, but when it comes to starting their own practices they have to accept financial risk and prove their value. Lorraine Bock, co-founder of National Nurse Practitioner Entrepreneur Network (NNPEN), shares her experience starting her own practice as a nurse practitioner, the value that nurse practitioners add to the healthcare system, and how nurse practitioners can engage in value-based contracting.
Using the Power of Community-Based Paramedicine for Value-Based Care, SDOH
Community-based paramedics have a unique role in the local healthcare system. By going into individuals’ homes to provide healthcare support, they can gain insight into potential social determinants of health barriers that other healthcare providers may never see. Ken Peach, executive director of the Health Council of East Central Florida, shares how his organization is using community-based paramedicine to improve value-based care in Florida.
Tracking the Evolution of Remote Patient Monitoring, Projecting Its Future
Remote patient monitoring received a lot of attention when healthcare was forced homeward during the coronavirus pandemic out of necessity. But what does the future hold for these technologies? Are remote patient monitoring technologies worth keeping around and, if so, what is the next step in integrating them into the healthcare system at large, including incorporating them into evolving artificial intelligence strategies? Eric Wicklund, senior editor of mHealthIntelligence at Xtelligent Healthcare Media, leverages his extensive background covering mHealth technologies to project the road ahead for remote patient monitoring technologies.
