Election 2020: The Presidency, the Court or Congress?
A few weeks ago, we got a group together to spitball about the election with less than a week ago. We figured we'd do it again, putting ourselves on record, talking about what might happen when anything could happen. We'll know soon enough, or maybe we won't. In order of appearance the conversation included Tim Stewart, VP in our National and Academic Health System. Practice Justin Gibbs, VP in our Regional Practice and Isaac Squires, partner in our Regional Practice.
We'll continue to talk about the consequences of the election, especially since we should have at least some clarity soon. So be sure to subscribe to the high-stakes podcast on Apple podcasts or Spotify.

Election 2020: What happened to healthcare?
The election is looming. There’s so much uncertainty, and if you’re listening to this on Wednesday, September 30, then you’re still probably like us, sitting on the couch, motionless, staring at your now switched off TV and some kind of empty glass in your hand trying to figure out what the crap happened last night. If anyone was hoping for clear answers to the uncertainty… that wasn’t it.
And yet, healthcare leaders need to prepare their organizations for, uh, well, whatever it is that’s coming.
We pride ourselves in looking around corners here at Jarrard, but even we aren’t 100% sure what’s coming. Still, we’ve got a lot of thoughts on the types of conversations that will be taking place around the election and healthcare. That includes some of the hotspots that will erupt – and by erupt I mean be part of the discussion among people actually looking at the issues, not erupt as in, well, last night.
But really, behind the tension and heat around the election and the incoherence of the debate, it’s worth pointing out some areas where providers could temper their expectations. For example, the ACA isn’t going to be repealed, or Medicare for All enacted, any time soon – regardless of who wins.
We got a group of our political junkies together to riff on what’s going on. Here, we’ve taken some highlights from that roundtable discussion. The conversation included – in order of appearance, our CEO David Jarrard, Vice President in our Regional Practice Justin Gibbs, Senior Vice President in our National Practice Tim Stewart, and Partner and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Phillips.
One size doesn’t fit all: On being seen, heard & included in healthcare
Health disparities faced by communities of color across the country are no secret. Black and Latino populations face higher prevalence of and worse outcomes for many conditions. COVID-19 disproportionately affects people of color. The interplay between socioeconomic status and health is well-documented, access to care is challenge and bias – implicit and explicit – damages trust and creates barriers to care.
It’s long past time for that to change, and we have a responsibility to build a more inclusive, equitable and accessible healthcare system. It all starts with belonging.
In this episode, we hear from Marquise Stillwell of Openbox, Sonia Thompson of Thompson Media Group, Paul Matsen of the Cleveland Clinic and Matt Gove of Summit City MD on what diversity, equity and inclusion looks like in healthcare and how providers can make progress towards helping everyone feel - and be - seen when they pursue care.
Patient Experience: Healthcare's prescription for capturing demand
This year, acceleration of existing trends happened across healthcare. Which, in turn, opened up the opportunity for providers to consolidate some of the positive steps they've taken and also reevaluate some things that still need improving That positions marketers of healthcare provider organizations to step in and lead the charge towards creating a new, better healthcare experience. In this episode, we hear from Marquise Stillwell of Openbox, Sonia Thompson of Thompson Media Group, Paul Matsen of the Cleveland Clinic and Matt Gove of Summit City MD on the role and mindset of healthcare marketing and communications teams today.
