Addressing Supply Chain Cybersecurity Risk and Patient Safety with Proofpoint

June 16, 2021: Email is the number one cyber attack vector within healthcare. And these days it’s also a patient safety issue. Does your healthcare system have a sound email cybersecurity plan in place? Here to discuss the problem and of course the solution is Julie Hubbard, VP, Enterprise IT & Information Security at AMN Healthcare and Ryan Witt, Managing Director and Resident CISO at Proofpoint. The threat actors are getting more sophisticated. What is the evolution of the threat landscape? Why is the supply chain such a ripe target for these hackers? How far can health systems get on training alone? How has the Proofpoint solution evolved to meet the current threats? How do they use AI and analytics to deter these multi-staged attacks?Key Points:Successful imposter style phishing attacks are very reliant on sending emails that don't appear suspicious [00:15:55] There is now a linkage between cybersecurity and an institution's ability to protect patients [00:03:40] 53.7% of malicious URLs originate from legitimate file shares from Microsoft, meaning that people have already gotten into your network [00:10:00] WannaCry was a tremendously significant ransomware attack. It should have been an inflection point. [00:07:05] Proofpoint AMN Healthcare

The Clinic of the Future with Donna Bergman

Healthcare should be easy for everyone to understand, but more often than not, it is complicated for patients and families to navigate. Today's guest, Donna Bergman, is a great example of someone 'who has a chip on her shoulder' on how things are done and has come up with ways to make changes. Director of Population Health for St. Luke's Health System; Donna shares some of her challenges and frustrations in the health care system and what she is doing to improve patient outcomes. She paints a picture of the change she hopes to see and talks about a team-based patient-focused model that can deliver care while also caring for doctors and other providers.

The Agony of Da Feet – Assessing Foot and Ankle Pain and Injury

Guest: Daniel B. Ryssman, M.D. Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD) Generally, we take our feet for granted. It’s not unusual for a person to take 8- to 10-thousand steps per day. That translates to over 115,000 miles in a lifetime. By the time we reach 70 years old, the average person will have walked the equivalent of 4 times around the globe. Yet, we stop taking our feet for granted when they hurt, and it’s estimated that 75% of Americans will experience foot problems of varying degrees of severity during their lifetime. In this podcast, we’ll discuss foot and ankle pain with Daniel Ryssman, M.D., an orthopedist and sports medicine physician from Mayo Clinic. We’ll review some of the common injuries to the ankle such as sprains and fractures as well as common chronic conditions of the foot such as plantar fasciitis and bunions. Dr. Ryssman delves into the best ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat these conditions as well as what, if any, imaging to order. Specific topics discussed: Ankle sprains Ankle fractures Achilles’ tendon rupture Plantar fasciitis Bunions Metatarsalgia Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.

In memory of Bernard Lown

"Ever the teacher, the Dr. Lown we knew modeled 'The Lost Art of Healing' (the title of one of his books) in the clinic, the laboratory, and the halls of power. As health professionals, we watched him listen carefully to his patients; as citizens, we saw him listen deeply to our neighbors. We heard him importune our health care enterprise to do what is best for democracy with an eye on the future, instead of what helps today’s bottom line. And he entreated us to bear witness to the harms and risks of our social choices, to shine a light on the possible, and to lead toward a future that is better than the past. 'If you can see the invisible,' Dr. Lown said, 'you can do the impossible.' Dr. Bernard Lown was the best of his generation. Kind and wise. A listener, a thinker, a doer. A teacher and prodder. A challenger and inspirer. Impossible to equal. And impossible to ignore." Michael Fine is a family physician. He shares his story and discusses the KevinMD article, "In memory of Bernard Lown." (

How biosimilars are affecting the drug markets

Lowering prescription drug prices continues to be a hot topic. Spending on biologic products, which includes most vaccines and gene therapies, was estimated at $125 billion in the United States in 2018, representing about a quarter of total pharmaceutical spending.Biosimilars, follow-on products to biologic drugs with essentially the same molecular composition to produce comparable clinical effects, are viewed by many as a way to promote competition and bring down drug prices. But the biosimilar market is young, with half of the 10 key product classes seeing marketing entry in 2018 or later. Understanding the evolving market for biosimilars is the topic of this episode of A Health Podyssey.Ariel Dora Stern, associate professor at Harvard Business School and a faculty affiliate of the Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science, and coauthors published a paper in the June 2021 issue of Health Affairs examining how quickly biosimilars and follow-on products gained market share and the subsequent trajectory of drug prices.Listen to Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil interview Dr. Stern on what biosimilars are and how the pharmaceutical market is evolving in response to their market entry.

Brock Yetso and The Ulman Foundation

Brock Yetso is the President & CEO at the Ulman Foundation, one of the original young adult cancer advocacy organizations. Borne in the late 1990s, the Ulman Foundation (formerly the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults) pioneered the very idea of adolescent and young adult cancer as a thing, first and foremost, long before the data and the research manifested in practice. I consider Brock a progenitor and mentor who helped me find my place and my voice before Stupid Cancer was a real boy. Thanks to groups like the Ulman Foundation, 25 years later, young adult cancer is now mainstream oncology — but there's still no short supply of new cancer diagnoses each year, which is why their work continues to this day.

The Intersection of Business, Innovation, & Design

We're back and ready to talk about Med Tech innovation, commercialization, and startup development! In this episode, NEMIC’s Co-founder and Healthcare Innovator Aidan Petrie joins Ayan Bhandari, Senior Human-Centered Industrial Designer at Ximedica and CEO of his own startup Nuway to recap how we implemented NEMIC's Innovation Design Sprint Process at the COVID-19 Response Innovation Hackathons. Both guests teach the Business of Design course at RISD, where they focus on the intersection of Design and Business. Listen in as two incredibly talented designers speak to the importance of implementing a tried and true design process to invent ideas that move healthcare forward. This amazing interview is packed with tons of insights on the innovation and design process, so please make sure to tune in! Today's Guest Aidan Petrie Aidan is a healthcare innovator, strategist, and mentor. He is a founding Partner of NEMIC (New England Medical Innovation Center), a partner in Magpie Medtech Venture Fund, and a founding partner of Ximedica. He is also a Fellow of the Provost at RISD and a mentor and adviser to multiple startups.  His passion for innovation and design has helped bring hundreds of products to market that range from simple drug compliance aids to wearable therapeutics, home monitoring products, and complex surgical systems. Ayan Bhandari Ayan is a Senior Human-Centered Industrial Designer at Ximedica. He is also the Co-Founder and CEO of Nuway and an Assistant Professor at Rhode Island School of Design. Since graduating from Virginia Tech in 2013, Ayan has honed his skills at various start-ups and corporations, culminating at Ximedica.  Key Take-Aways The capability of working simultaneously with a good process is what makes innovation sprints successful.  Ideas come from more than just one place or one person. It comes from energizing the domain expertise that comes from the whole company.  Fear is the misuse of your imagination.  Create opportunities to use your talent.  Medical innovation is difficult. It's not just about a good idea. It's not even just about good design. It's not even just about good ergonomics. There is a business and an infrastructure. There are material restrictions. The medical health care industry is the largest industry in the country. If you want to create something amazing, you have to put in so much work.  Resources NEMIC | Ximedica | Ayan's Email | Ayan's LinkedIn

Why it's time to split the autism spectrum

"Legislative advocacy has become difficult for the severe autism population since the DSM-5 lumped Asperger’s syndrome with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Further complicating the matter, a new population recently emerged who identify as “autistic” without having a diagnosis from a qualified health care professional. Without a clear distinction for various parts of the spectrum, we are comparing apples and oranges. We will not render meaningful information, and we make it difficult for the entire spectrum, but especially for those most affected." Irene Tanzman is a patient advocate and author of Abie and Arlene’s Autism War. Jill Escher is president, National Council on Severe Autism (NCSA). They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, "Why health care professionals must call for splitting the autism spectrum." (
