EP341: How to Cut Administrative Waste AND Attract and Retain Doctors and Nurses, With Gary Campbell
To talk about the possibilities, I have the perfect guest: Gary Campbell, who is the CEO of Johnson Health Center, which is an FQHC, a Federally Qualified Health Center, in Lynchburg, Virginia. Why is the CEO of an FQHC a great person to talk about cutting out administrative waste with? Well, first of all, the patient population is what many would consider challenging at an FQHC. Second, they really have to cut out as much waste as possible because there is zero potential to cost shift.
EP340: How Digital Front Doors Can Enable Value-Based Care, With Kristin Begley
There’s a next generation of digital front doors being created that open up to a patient/member experience that folds in payer, provider, and employer data—plus behavioral data the patient themselves generates when they browse through content in there. Because that’s what it takes for a so-called personalized experience or patient journey to ensue. This is what I’m talking about in this healthcare podcast with Kristin Begley, PharmD.
AEE17: Employers and Reference-Based Pricing—David Contorno’s Latest Thinking
Reference-based pricing, the way that most employee benefit consultants use the term anyway, refers to a methodology used by employers to pay providers for services.
How it works: Reference-based pricing (RBP) means that an employer starts with some reference-based price. Many times, it’s the Medicare rate. The employer will decide that they’re willing to pay some percent over the Medicare rate to providers who render that service to the employee. David Contorno discusses in this healthcare podcast.
EP339: Helping Employers Navigate the Perilous Medical-Industrial Complex, With David Contorno
My guest in this healthcare podcast, David Contorno, has been in the benefits industry longer than he hasn’t been in the benefits industry. I think he started working in a benefits brokerage when he was 17 or something. Currently, he’s the founder of E Powered Benefits. In this episode, we talk about the keys for self-insured employers that lead to better health for their employees at something like 20% or more lower costs.

EP337: A Patient-First Specialty Pharmacy, Not a Money-First Specialty Pharmacy, With Olivia Webb
In this healthcare podcast, I’m talking with Olivia Webb about what it would take and be like to create a “patient-first specialty pharmacy,” as she has coined the term—a specialty pharmacy dedicated to patients not only having a half-decent experience but also one that might actually create better patient outcomes. Olivia Webb is author of the Acute Condition newsletter. I would certainly recommend subscribing.

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.
