A Patient Advocate’s Tips for Creating Equity | Gillian Mason, University of Newcastle

By JESSICA DAMASSA, WTF HEALTH

Imagine working full-time, finding health services, visiting multiple clinicians a week, and coordinating your health information. This is the reality of patients with one or more serious health conditions. Patients can have a lot on their plate, and sociocultural factors are often the cause to why patients may not follow their doctor’s orders. That’s why Gillian Mason, patient advocate and physio-rehabilitation researcher at the University of Newcastle, emphasizes looking from the patient perspective. How does she think we can better enable patients’ access to health services? Is the answer from Australia (and its nationalized healthcare system) DIFFERENT than it is when you ask patients in the U.S.? Tune in to find out!

A Change Management Guru’s Guide to Working with Clinicians | Dr. Margaret Kennedy, Gevity Inc.

By JESSICA DAMASSA, WTF HEALTH

One of the biggest challenges clinicians face in delivering good care is keeping up with today’s up-and-coming revolutionary health technology. Dr. Margaret Kennedy, Chief Nursing Informatics Officer at Gevity Consulting, is often charged with helping health systems change clinicians’ perspectives when it comes to digital health and tech. So, what has she learned? Among other things, it turns out that some clinicians are more inclined to accept technological change than others. Are there certain traits these ‘early adopters’ have in common? Or does it have to do with the way the healthcare organization sells the tech’s value prop? Hint, hint: You can never go wrong when you can appeal to a clinician’s desire to provide better care.

What will REALLY Bring Down the Cost of Healthcare (i.e.NOT Consumerization) | Peter Orszag, Lazard

By JESSICA DAMASSA, WTF HEALTH

Is vertical integration like that CVS-Aetna merger the answer then? Tune in for one (really smart) economist’s take…
