    Rural Obstetrics

    Rural Obstetrics

    Rural obstetrics care is often hampered by a lack of providers, low reimbursement, and limited resources, often leading to closures of birthing centers and OB/GYN practices in rural communities. This week, we speak with a Hillsdale legend, and someone who often has been been the only or one of the only people delivering babies in the community over the past few decades. Today welcome Dr. Alfred Bediako, OB/GYN and Chief of Obstetrics here at Hillsdale Hospital.

    Payment Reform: The Time is Now

    Payment Reform: The Time is Now

    After an illuminating conversation last week with Harold Miller, CEO Center for Healthcare Quality and Payment Reform, we talk this week about our thoughts and reactions to the interview. We also discuss ways that rural hospitals can come together to help sway both public opinion and public policy regarding sufficient payment and reimbursement.

    Identifying and Advocating for Data Backed Payment Reform

    Identifying and Advocating for Data Backed Payment Reform

    Nearly 30 percent of all rural hospitals in the United States are at risk of closure, including 10 percent at immediate risk of closure. Mixed payment models, fixes that made things worse, and the effect of inflation demand a new look on how rural hospitals are paid and sustained. This week, we welcome Harold Miller, CEO of the Center for Healthcare Quality and Payment Reform to talk about alternative payment models across the rural health industry.

    How Public Health and Healthcare Work Together in Rural Communities

    How Public Health and Healthcare Work Together in Rural Communities

    Public health and healthcare play different, but complementary, roles in ensuring the health and wellness of their communities and patients. This relationship was both tested and highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic unlike ever before. So, how do rural hospitals work with their local public health agencies to support their overall health and wellbeing of the people they serve?
    On today’s episode, hosts JJ and Rachel talk with Rebecca Burns, Health Officer for the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency (BHSJ) in Michigan about the relationship between public health and healthcare.

Good info, but is very political

I come from a rural area in another state and I am very passionate about rural healthcare and hospitals. I have found this podcast to be an excellent source of information and perspective on the issues, but I have to be honest: Mr. Hodshire has said repeatedly that it is not a political podcast. That is false. The podcast has a decidedly conservative slant which is understandable, but they have had guests (most notably Congressman Walberg) who repeat political talking points, leave out needed context for some contentious issues, and yes, they make statements that are provably and blatantly false. You can’t have that and say your podcast is not political. And again, that’s fine if it is. It’s your podcast. But it is heavily one-sided in ideological leaning.

Walberg propaganda dribble

Up until episode 14 I found your podcasts interesting and informative. A large portion of the Walberg interview was simply a political farce. I lost ANY respect for this pretend “Represenative “ when he voted to eliminate ALL of our presidential votes.
