    Innovations Across the Atlantic: What the US & UK Can Learn From Each Other When it Comes to Crisis Care

    Innovations Across the Atlantic: What the US & UK Can Learn From Each Other When it Comes to Crisis Care

    One of the advantages of serving clients across multiple geographies is that Vynamic can see firsthand how the differences in health systems play out in terms of spend, outcomes, and innovation. Jen & Ryan are joined by Vynamic London’s Oliver White and Vynamic Boston’s Shari Robbins to discuss key differences between the health systems in each country and what they can learn from one another as they move healthcare delivery out of the hospital and into the community setting. In one sense, the US and UK represent two extremes on the delivery system spectrum: the US has the largest private sector system globally while the UK has the largest publicly funded system. They also differ in key metrics around healthcare spend and outcomes (01:19), science and technology (04:21), and wait times for elective procedures and emergency care (06:21). Despite these differences, both systems are focused on improving cost and customer satisfaction – especially when it comes to telehealth and home care (09:05). One model the NHS has put forward in this effort is Community Crisis Response Teams (12:38) – a model that could be attractive as US health systems look to transition care to the home and alleviate emergency department (ED) volumes (15:13). While implementing such a model could present scaling challenges in the US market (16:45), it could also offer opportunities for health plans and providers to improve quality, outcomes, and patient satisfaction (18:29). Podcast Tags: healthcare, providers, health plans, public health, NHS, CMS, telehealth, crisis careSource Links: · https://www.usnews.com/news/healthiest-communities/articles/2019-12-11/survey-finds-fragmented-us-health-care-impedes-coordination-among-providers (https://www.usnews.com/news/healthiest-communities/articles/2019-12-11/survey-finds-fragmented-us-health-care-impedes-coordination-among-providers)· https://www.commonwealthfund.org/international-health-policy-center/countries/england (https://www.commonwealthfund.org/international-health-policy-center/countries/england)· https://www.commonwealthfund.org/international-health-policy-center/countries/united-states (https://www.commonwealthfund.org/international-health-policy-center/countries/united-states)· https://www.commonwealthfund.org/blog/2018/what-can-us-and-england-learn-each-others-health-care-reforms (https://www.commonwealthfund.org/blog/2018/what-can-us-and-england-learn-each-others-health-care-reforms)· https://www.healthcareadministration.com/brief-comparison-uk-healthcare-system-vs-u-s-healthcare-system/#:~:text=While%20both%20systems%20have%20world,tax%20based%20system%20versus%20the (https://www.healthcareadministration.com/brief-comparison-uk-healthcare-system-vs-u-s-healthcare-system/#:~:text=While%20both%20systems%20have%20world,tax%20based%20system%20versus%20the)· https://www.england.nhs.uk/community-health-services/urgent-community-response-services/ (https://www.england.nhs.uk/community-health-services/urgent-community-response-services/)· https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/B0252-Urgent-community-response-2-hour-and-2-days-standards-guidance-30-November-2020.pdf (https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/B0252-Urgent-community-response-2-hour-and-2-days-standards-guidance-30-November-2020.pdf)· https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6465904/ (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6465904/)For additional discussion, please contact us at TrendingHealth.com (mailto:Hi5@vynamic.com) or share a voicemail at 1-888-VYNAMIC.Oliver White,

    DEI For Healthcare Organizations: Where to Start

    DEI For Healthcare Organizations: Where to Start

    Now more than ever before, healthcare organizations are reflecting on how to improve health equity and address bias within their organizations. Jen & Ryan are joined by Vynamic’s Diversity Equity & Inclusion Service Leads, Stefanie Christmas & Shannon Connolly, to discuss what leaders should be thinking about as they address this industry imperative. 2020 ushered in a “cultural reset” for the business world, especially the healthcare industry, to think about DEI in a new way (01:05) – beyond being the right thing to do, we know embedding a culture that is committed to DEI has demonstrated benefits to healthcare organizations in terms of employee engagement, innovation, financial performance, and patient outcomes (02:00). However, impacting meaningful change requires a thoughtful approach – it is important for organizations to assess where they are on their DEI journey (11:00), develop a roadmap of outcome-driven short- and long-term goals (12:23), and communicate their strategy and successes along the way (16:04). This type of effort requires a true shift in mindset and embracing new conversations (19:10) – it may not always be comfortable, but that is where the true change begins (21:13). For additional information on where to start your organization’s DEI Journey, check out Vynamic’s recent insight (https://vynamic.com/insights/diversity-equity-inclusion-journey-where-to-start/), service information (https://vynamic.com/services/healthy-culture/diversity-equity-and-inclusion/), and case study (https://vynamic.com/case-study/developing-a-diversity-equity-inclusion-roadmap-and-company-mindset/). Podcast Tags: healthcare, diversity, equity, inclusion, DEI, health equity, psychological safetySource Links:· https://vynamic.com/insights/diversity-equity-inclusion-journey-where-to-start/ (https://vynamic.com/insights/diversity-equity-inclusion-journey-where-to-start/)· https://catalyst.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/CAT.21.0166 (https://catalyst.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/CAT.21.0166)· https://www.healthleadersmedia.com/strategy/create-strong-workforce-through-diversity-equity-and-inclusion (https://www.healthleadersmedia.com/strategy/create-strong-workforce-through-diversity-equity-and-inclusion)· https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30765101/ (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30765101/)· https://kirbybates.com/blog/diversity-healthcare-leadership-breaking-the-glass-ceiling/ (https://kirbybates.com/blog/diversity-healthcare-leadership-breaking-the-glass-ceiling/)For additional discussion, please contact us at TrendingHealth.com (mailto:Hi5@vynamic.com) or share a voicemail at 1-888-VYNAMIC.Stefanie Christmas, Director and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Service LeadStefanie.christmas@vynamic.com (mailto:Stefanie.christmas@vynamic.com)Shannon Connolly, Director and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Service LeadShannon.connolly@vynamic.com (mailto:Shannon.connolly@vynamic.com)Ryan Hummel, Executive and Head of Provider Sectorryan.hummel@vynamic.com (mailto:ryan.hummel@vynamic.com)Jen Burke, Director and Healthcare Industry Strategistjen.burke@vynamic.com (mailto:jen.burke@vynamic.com)

Great!

Really helpful information!

Shawn - Mount Vision, NY ,

Need to work on sound quality and content

Sound quality is pretty bad and latest interviews have started to sound more like advertisements rather than discussions. Financial health podcast was especially egregious on that front.
