    197: Lessons from the C-Suite: Demystifying generative AI with Dr. John Halamka, President of Mayo Clinic Platform

    Artificial intelligence has been rocking industries across the world, and healthcare is no exception. But what impact will it have exactly on physicians? Health systems? Data sovereignty?


    In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods passes the microphone to Eric Larsen, President Emeritus of Advisory Board and President of TowerBrook Advisors. In this conversation, Eric sits down with Dr. John Halamka, President of the Mayo Clinic Platform, to demystify how the industry should think about generative AI across all of healthcare.

    196: The future of surgery (no, it's not just robots)

    196: The future of surgery (no, it's not just robots)

    Headlines about the future of surgery often focus on robots in the operating room– but innovation in surgical care and operations goes beyond robotics. In reality, the solutions to surgery leaders' problems – like inefficiency and dwindling margins – may be less futuristic than you'd think.


    In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board experts Isis Monteiro, Miles Cottier, and Paul Trigonoplos to discuss what is next for the future of surgery, and what it will actually take for health systems to make surgical care profitable again. They discuss innovations in the OR, opportunities to improve efficiency, and why it might be time to think differently about the future of surgery.

    195: Site of care shifts: It's time to go on offense

    195: Site of care shifts: It's time to go on offense

    The data doesn't lie: site-of-care shifts are accelerating. Health systems rely on surgical volumes as a major revenue driver, but as more procedures take place outside of the hospital, systems are not necessarily positioned to capture the shift in volumes – or revenues. So, what should health systems do?


    To answer that question, host Abby Burns talks with Advisory Board experts Nick Hula and Sebastian Beckmann. They discuss why health systems need to transition from a "defensive" to "offensive" approach to capture shifting volumes and identify service- and market-level factors systems should consider when putting this mindset shift into action.

    194: The patients are not all right: Unpacking the quality crisis with the Joint Commission's Dr. David Baker

    194: The patients are not all right: Unpacking the quality crisis with the Joint Commission's Dr. David Baker

    We've all seen headlines about decreasing quality in U.S. healthcare. In an industry battling with workforce shortages, rising health needs, missed prevention, workplace violence, and rising healthcare needs, it's no wonder quality is falling and adverse events are rising. The fact is: in 2024, the patients are not all right.


    In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods talks with Advisory Board equity expert Darby Sullivan about the state of clinical quality. Following that, we hear from Dr. David Baker, Executive Vice President for Healthcare Quality Evaluation and Improvement at the Joint Commission, to discuss why patient quality is declining and what the industry can do to improve it. In the conversation, they discuss how we define and measure clinical quality, what leaders can do to improve outcomes, and more.

    193: Is health system growth still possible?

    193: Is health system growth still possible?

    Between high labor costs, inflation, workforce shortages, and a host of other challenges, the past couple of years have been some of the most straining financial times for health systems in recent memory. Though the tides may be starting to turn, it is critical that health systems do not get complacent. How can health systems prepare to grow in the midst of an optimistic yet volatile landscape? Paradoxically, the growth path for health systems is actually to shrink.


    That’s why, in this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board health systems expert Vidal Seegobin, and quantitative insights expert Larry Watts to discuss why heath systems might have to first shrink in order to grow and prepare themselves for the future. Throughout the conversation, they discuss why leaders need to look past the optimism of short term relief, and why hospital-based health systems need to start working smarter and not harder.

    192: What CEOs need to know in 2024 (Part 2)

    192: What CEOs need to know in 2024 (Part 2)

    Last week, in the first part of our series on what CEOs need to pay attention to in 2024, we discussed several of the seismic changes that have emerged in the healthcare industry. In particular, we discussed where care is delivered, and how the healthcare industry is shifting from hospital-first care delivery to vertically integrated ecosystems.


    In part two of our series, host Rachel (Rae) Woods welcomes back Advisory Board experts Natalie Trebes, Prianca Pai, and Sharon Yuen to discuss two other seismic shifts: who delivers care and how it’s paid for. In the conversation, they discuss how care team roles are shifting in a world of generative AI, how treatment economics are evolving in the new era of bespoke care, and more.

Loved episode 121!!

Really loved the experts in 121! Need to bring back Tara

Diluted value

Bloated delivery of industry truisms and corporate speak packaged as insight, constantly interrupted by the host’s pointless, agreeable interjections.
