    You can hear Blake's previous interview with Nurse Keith on episode 432 of The Nurse Keith Show.
    Nurse Blake is a registered nurse, author, comedian and healthcare advocate. Blake’s career began in nursing at age 17 and he quickly became known for his relatable humor and heartfelt advocacy.

His nursing journey includes roles in Surgical ICU, Liver Transplant, Pulmonary Step Down, Care Coordination, and Injury Prevention.

    Taking Control of Our Personal Health Information

    Taking Control of Our Personal Health Information

    On episode 481 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Jean Ross, MHA, BSN, RN, the co-founder of Primary Record, a nurse-designed app that helps families organize and collaboratively share their family’s health information across multiple platforms and electronic medical record systems. It's a medical record jungle out there, and Primary Record is Ms. Ross's answer to the growing confusion.
    In the course of their conversation, Keith and Jean discuss the trends in healthcare that have led to us navigating the multitude of online patient portals and repositories of information that can make caring for ourselves and our loved ones a complicated and frustrating task. Ms. Ross also elucidates facts about the little-known 21st Century Cures Act, a law that stipulates that all healthcare consumers have a legal right to be able to view and download their online medical records. In fact, organizations that fail to provide such access can face enormous fines.
    As a nurse, Jean Ross knows that providing better care starts with knowing the full story of patients. Her passion centers on supporting the family around complex patients who are instrumental in carrying out the plan of care in the home. She co-founded Primary Record after 12 years of critical care nursing and running a care coordination company, where she saw first hand the problems families and community businesses face when their health information does not follow them.
    Jean serves as the chairwoman of Community Heath Network’s Indy Region Patient and Family Advisory Council, a volunteer on Indiana’s AARP legislative team, and a Dementia Champion with Dementia Friends Indiana. Jean is the eldest daughter of two aging parents, a mother of three sons, Jonas, Ian, and Otis, and the proud wife of Dr. Christian Ross.

    Can Nurse Practitioners Gain Freedom From the Medical Rat Race?

    Can Nurse Practitioners Gain Freedom From the Medical Rat Race?

    On episode 478 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith welcomes back Dr. Annie DePasquale of CollaboratingDocs.com. This time, Keith and Dr. Annie discuss the hottest trends in nurse practitioner career paths, especially for cash-based business endeavors like medical aesthetics, weight loss, IV hydration and vitamin infusions, telepsychiatry, and concierge medicine.
    Many NPs are wanting more freedom from the healthcare system rat race, and cash-based private practices are one way to circumvent the slog that so many NPs are encountering when working in the mainstream medical system.
    Dr. Annie DePasquale, MD is a Board-certified Family Medicine physician who first-hand saw an unmet need for her NP colleagues who need a supervising physician to practice independently.
    Dr. DePasquale studied piano & French as an Undergrad at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and completing her Facility Medicine Residency program at Georgetown University in Washington DC. She taught for the Teach America program in Baltimore, MD and worked for Federally Qualified Health Centers in Washington, DC, Medford, OR & Lynchburg, VA.
    In 2020, Dr. Annie DePasquale founded Collaborating Docs when she realized how hard it is for NPs to find a collaborating physician. The hoops that nurse practitioners have to jump through to start practicing are too exhausting for anyone to handle alone. Dr. DePasquale benefited greatly from the mentorship of NPs throughout her career, especially when she was a green new grad, so she is very committed to giving back to the community that helped her so much.
    Along with her team, Dr. DePasquale's mission is to make it easy for NPs to help more patients by having the freedom of choice. Collaborating Docs has helped over 4000 NPs match with collaborating physicians.
    Please check out Dr. Annie's previous interview on episode 453 of The Nurse Keith Show, "Where Do Nurse Practitioners Turn When They Need Collaborating Docs?"
