Episode 70: Data Collection and Analysis in Rural Health

There are many entities that rate and evaluate hospitals for quality, safety and more.

Listen Again | 55: Ready to Vote?

Voting and Health. It's not a pairing that readily springs to mind, but increasingly, research and data demonstrate how this dynamic duo impact and amplify one another and dramatically shape community and individual health and access to care. On a daily basis, in every healthcare setting, health teams see the unhappy faces and stressful circumstances of failing health policies and the direct connection between voter access and the critical path to improving our health policies, reducing health inequities, and building healthier and representative democracies. With ballot measures and elections taking place throughout the country, we’re resharing this important conversation as part of the Civic Health Month and the nationwide effort to expand and normalize healthcare settings as community touchpoints for voter access and engagement and learning from the experiences and insights of three civic health innovators Nurse Elizabeth Cohn, Physician Alister Martin, and Community Organizer Aliya Bhatia who provide compelling evidence and data for why health is always on the ballot, and healthcare settings and healthcare professionals are particularly effective messengers and catalysts for voter engagement. Together, they have collectively created and built NursesWhoVote, Democracy at Discharge, Vot-ER, and the Healthy Democracy Kit and are key members of the Civic Health Conference.

74: Who Cares When Nurses Leave?

This summer, SEE YOU NOW is on the road and part of the Aspen Ideas: Health conference. Bringing together an exceptional mix of experts, visionary thinkers, and innovative doers from across a range of disciplines and viewpoints, Aspen Ideas: Health is appreciated for stimulating, and sometimes provocative exchanges that turn ideas into action and chart pathways toward better health for all.  Building on the recognition that the health of one depends on the health of all, the well-being of our healthcare workforce -- specifically nurses -- took center stage at Aspen as a global priority. In an expert panel discussion led by SEE YOU NOW host and nurse Shawna Butler, we talk candidly about Healthcare in Critical Condition: Who Cares When Nurses Leave?  This expert panel highlighted the nursing crisis as a healthcare crisis – that without skilled, experienced, supported and empowered nurses, reliably safe and quality healthcare is at risk, with a disproportionate impact on rural America. The needs are urgent and action is non-negotiable – patient health and safety are on the line. Listen in to hear nurse and researcher Christopher Friese professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, nurse Karen Dale CEO, AmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia, and emergency physician Christopher Barsotti Program Director, AFFIRM at The Aspen Institute, discuss opportunities, challenges and solutions to Healthcare’s Great Resignation.
