    Side Affects Episode 101 | onefifteen: Activating the Data of the Opioid Epidemic

    Side Affects Episode 101 | onefifteen: Activating the Data of the Opioid Epidemic

    In 2017, our nation was losing 115 people a day to drug misuse, with Dayton, Ohio flagged as the epicenter of the opioid epidemic. This Side Affects episode, Kenzie McEvily and guest host, Scott McGohan welcome Marti Taylor from onefifteen, a not-for-profit organization that asked the questions, “What can we do? How can we understand addiction to the point of creating a roadmap to alter the stigma of drug abuse and then use the science to understand the cause, and the user’s need to hopefully avoid an accidental overdose?”

    Logic pointed the onefifteen crew to base in Dayton, at the heart of the problem, with the intent to provide good care right here in our city. Our hospitals, the mayor’s and sheriff’s offices are all working together to make a difference. Listen to this incredible organization’s process and learn how they gather and activate the data to see what is working and what isn’t.

    Episode 097 | Direct Contracts: Modern Flair for Cost-Effective Health Care

    Even though Direct Contracting has been around for decades, employers are finding creative ways to tailor their employees' health care needs. On this episode of Side Affects, we have invited our partner at M3 Insurance, Vice-President of Employee Benefits Sales, Ryan Barbieri, to present how Direct Contracting has adapted beyond the single provider relationship for employers.

    Kenzie McEvily and guest host Anne Marie Singleton ask Ryan to dig deeper into Direct Contracting and share how those employers willing to tackle the non-traditional methods of health care could reap benefits beyond the ROI. Find out if you have what it takes as an employer to put direct contracting into motion for a long-term solution.
