All-Cause Mortality The US faces a serious health disadvantage as life expectancy drops for the second consecutive year and maternal mortality rates reach an all-time high. While the US has higher survival rates for cancer, better control of blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and lower stroke mortality, these achievements aren't enough to offset other problems. Higher child poverty, gun violence, racial segregation, social isolation, and poor city design are some of the factors contributing to this health disparity. The US's shorter life expectancy is estimated to cost the country $100 billion annually in extra healthcare costs. The reasons for the decline in life expectancy can't be ascribed only to the COVID-19 outbreak, as the US faces significant challenges that need to be addressed by policymakers.

Prostate Cancer & Men’s Health Edition | Primary Care Management of the Post-Prostate Cancer Patient
Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD] Guest: Scott M. Cheney, M.D. Except for skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in males. 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, most over the age of 65. If diagnosed early, treatment is quite effective and results in a very favorable survival rate. Several very effective treatment options are now available for patients. In this podcast, we’ll discuss the various treatments and what patients can expect following each option. We’ll review how a post-prostate cancer patient should be followed by their primary care provider and when there might be reason for concern of a recurrence. The guest for this podcast is Scott M. Cheney, M.D., a urologist from the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.

How understanding cultural backgrounds can lead to better patient care
Joining us today is Raj Sundar, a family physician with expertise in cultural humility and safety. Raj explains that the traditional approach to such situations tends to ignore the patient's cultural values and beliefs, with the health care team often focused on achieving their goals. However, cultural humility and safety offer an alternative paradigm. Cultural humility involves self-reflection of one's own values and beliefs, while cultural safety aims to create an environment free from harm for the patient when receiving care. By applying these principles, we can gain a better understanding of the patient's cultural background and how it influences their decision-making. Through cultural humility and safety, we can create a shared world of care that respects and values diverse communities, providing the best care possible. Raj Sundar is a family physician and can be reached on Twitter @krajsundar. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "It’s time to ditch cultural competence." The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience. With a growing physician shortage, increasing burnout, and declining patient satisfaction, a dramatic change is needed to make health care more efficient and effective and bring back the joy of practicing medicine. AI-driven ambient clinical intelligence promises to help by revolutionizing patient and provider experiences with clinical documentation that writes itself. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is a voice-enabled, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational. Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.

What Exactly is Open Access To AI and Why We Are Not There Yet in Healthcare? (Bart De Witte)
After an intense race in AI development lighted by the release of ChatGPT at the end of 2022, two important things happened in the last week of March 2023: Over 1000 tech workers, such as Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX, Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple, Yoshua Bengio, Founder and Scientific Director at Mila, Turing Prize winner and professor at University of Montreal, Stuart Russell, Berkeley, Professor of Computer Science, director of the Center for Intelligent Systems, and co-author of the standard textbook “Artificial Intelligence: a Modern Approach", signed a public letter that urges a pause on AI development before humanity as a society decides how humans can control the development. The first subscribers include: As the letter states, “Powerful AI systems should be developed only once we are confident that their effects will be positive and their risks will be manageable.” A day after this letter was published, UNESCO published a press release that calls on all governments to immediately implement the global ethical framework, which 193 Member States of Unesco has unanimously adopted. As warned by Unesco, we need to address many concerning ethical issues raised by AI innovations, in particular discrimination and stereotyping, including the issue of gender inequality, but also the fight against disinformation, the right to privacy, the protection of personal data, and human and environmental rights. And the industry cannot self-regulate, states the press release. Healthcare is moving from the era of gathering data through digitalized systems, EHRs, sensors, and wearables to the era of mining that data for better patient outcomes and operational efficiency. However, in order for AI and algorithms to help improve the health of many, we should strive for algorithms to be open and transparent, says Bart De Witte, founder of HIPPO AI Foundation, a renowned expert on digital transformation in healthcare in Europe, who regularly speakers and posts about technology and innovation strategy, with a particular focus on the socioeconomic impact on healthcare. In this short discussion, recorded at the Vision Health Pioneers Demo Day on 28 March in Berlin, Bart explains: why is open and transparent AI important for the greater good in healthcare, where global medical development is going with different values and regulations about AI and data, and comments on the upcoming European Health Data Space.
