EP347: Rolling Out Healthcare Initiatives That Actually Get Uptake With the Populations You Aim to Serve, With Ian Tong, MD, About the Black Community Innovation Coalition
In this healthcare podcast, we’re gonna talk about a new coalition formed by Walmart and six other employers, plus Included Health, which is the combined entity of Grand Rounds and Doctor On Demand. (They merged recently.) So, there was a coalition that was formed. It’s called the Black Community Innovation Coalition, and in short, it’s a new virtual-care program aimed at combating health disparities among African American workers.
Encore! EP288: The “Big Three” PBMs Spinning Up GPOs—What? With Mike Schneider
Over the holiday season here, we’re running some of our favorite episodes from years past. This one is with Mike Schneider, who actually has taken another role since this show was recorded. Other than that, the information that Mike shares during this episode from 2020 is all good. So, let’s do this thing.
EP346: How Did Health Systems Get Addicted to the Inflated Prices They Charge Employers and Some Patients? 2021 Update, With Peter Hayes, President and CEO of the Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine
In this healthcare podcast, I speak with Peter Hayes, who is president and CEO at the Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine and a national presence in healthcare strategy, innovation, and a frequent keynote speaker. One thing, among many, that Peter said during our conversation struck me. He said it will take a village to fix what ails the healthcare industry in this country. There are too many interdependencies.
EP345: Can Pharma Imagine How Our Health System Will Look in the Future? With Paul Simms
At the beginning of 2021, my guest in this healthcare podcast, Paul Simms, had come up with a set of predictions for 2021. Some came true; some didn’t. But I was fascinated by a bunch of things, one of them being Paul’s sort of implicit and explicit assessment of the context of these predictions.
EP344: The High Cost of Generic Drugs, With Steven Quimby, MD
My guest, as I said, Steven Quimby, MD, is an author and newly retired physician. His father was a pharmacist with a little drugstore that thrived in the late 1960s and early 1970s, so he literally grew up in the business. Dr. Quimby recently wrote a book called Billions in Your Generic Drugs. In sum, it’s a supply chain where not only is nobody watching the henhouse, but everybody within that supply chain has a very, very vested interest to see prices go up.
EP343: What Provider Leadership Teams Need to Know to Operationalize Value-Based Care, With David Carmouche, MD
Most in the healthcare industry have heard the metaphor about the two canoes. Provider organizations or health systems with some of their payments coming from a fee-for-service (FFS) payment model and some of them coming from value-based arrangements have one foot in the FFS canoe and one in the value-based canoe. That’s what I talk about in this healthcare podcast with Dr. David Carmouche: how to deal with the operational challenges, the cultural challenges, maybe even the generational challenges here.
Stacey, host of the Relentless Health Value podcast, highlights all aspects of health care and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
Intelligent and needed
I’ve been listening to Stacey’s podcast for a year and while it competes for a dozen others that I want to listen to, here’s is one I always keep up on and go back and find a trove of topics from the past. Her exploration of the nuances of the healthcare industry allows her to make connections in a siloed industry that few notice, which means the questions she asks and the conclusions she draws are of the most informed in the industry.
I especially like that she begins her podcasts now with her main takeaways. That makes the first 3 min of this podcast the most worthy use of your time.
Best way to understand what’s going on in healthcare
Anyone, even lifelong healthcare professionals, can learn something because of the way Stacey goes deep into a subject with her guests. She does a great job of keeping it topical and not commercial.
