    Igniting Passion for Care Early through STEAM

    Igniting Passion for Care Early through STEAM

    How do you get students excited about a career in health care? There are endless opportunities, but not every child has the chance to explore the possibilities.
     
    That’s where OSF STEAM comes in. The OSF STEAM program provides numerous opportunities for students to explore careers in science and health care. Join us as we discuss the OSF STEAM medical immersion program, a unique opportunity to engage high school students in career exploration.
     
    Host Shelli Dankoff chats with the team at OSF Innovation responsible for the program. Noël Adams, vice president, academic collaborations and operations, and Katie Smith, Innovation labs coordinator, will explain how this program is inspiring the next generation of health care professionals.

    It's All About the Patient

    It's All About the Patient

    The goal and focus of every health care provider is to do what is best for patients, but implementing that best practice can sometimes be a challenge.
     
    Join us as we discuss the participation of OSF HealthCare in a national initiative with the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to accelerate and improve the implementation of research results in clinical care to improve patient outcomes. As part of this initiative, OSF will use its expertise to develop and implement strategies to reduce the delay in adopting proven practices.
     
    Host Shelli Dankoff chats with the following OSF HealthCare leaders about the impact of this initiative:
    ·     Mike Cruz, MD, chief operating officer
    ·     Ralph Velazquez, MD, chief medical officer
    ·     Melinda Cooling, APRN, MBA, senior vice president of advanced practice and chief clinician executive of OSF OnCall

    Leading the Way for Telemedicine

    Leading the Way for Telemedicine

    OSF OnCall has been a leader in developing innovative digital care delivery models and recently had the opportunity to showcase its groundbreaking work on a national level.
     
    In early May, OSF OnCall and OSF Innovation represented OSF HealthCare at the American Telemedicine Association’s (ATA) national conference. OSF was invited to exhibit our innovative digital care delivery models, being one of only two health care systems invited to participate.
     
    Host Shelli Dankoff speaks with Jennifer Junis, senior vice president of OSF OnCall and Ann Mond Johnson, CEO of the American Telemedicine Association, to discuss the conference and the opportunities it offers for future collaboration.

    Take a Deep Breath

    Take a Deep Breath

    If something as simple as a blood test could help lead you to find out you have cancer earlier – increasing your chances of survival, would you take it?
     
    Join us for a discussion on improving early lung cancer detection rates through a collaborative effort between OSF HealthCare, the OSF Cancer Institute and DELFI Diagnostics. It’s an important effort, considering only 16 percent of lung cancer cases are discovered in the early stages.
     
    Host Shelli Dankoff chats with Susan Tousi, chief executive officer of DELFI Diagnostics and Mark Meeker, DO, internal medicine physician for OSF to discover how this innovative work hopes to lead to the diagnosis of lung cancer sooner and save more lives.

    70 Years of Innovation in Pediatric Care

    70 Years of Innovation in Pediatric Care

    The Sisters have always valued innovation. OSF HealthCare has a long-standing history of innovating in pediatric care, which continues today.
     
    Two of those innovators are Bill Albers, MD, a pioneering pediatric cardiologist and Tim Miller, MD, OSF HealthCare’s first neonatologist, who developed the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Both have written books capturing that history. We explore the early days (along with author Monica Vest Wheeler who spoke directly with nurses) to see how they shaped the best care for our smallest patients today and in the future.
