Making telehealth usable for everyone — with Amy Sheon

The Ever Elusive Online Review with Zeke Kuch

Today’s guest is Zeke Kuch from Swell, a software company that helps clinics and medical centers better communicate and engage with their patients. We brought Zeke over on the show to discuss online review generation and the challenge it presents. Most customers go online and either look for or generate reviews about services. This plays an important role in the decision-making process, and businesses nowadays live and die with online reviews. If leaving a review isn’t convenient or automated, customers probably won’t leave them. There are ways to ask for reviews, and the easier to do for the user, the more you’ll probably get.

Many US Citizen Migrant Children Living In Mexico Have Inadequate Health Coverage

Children born in the United States are born US citizens. Some of these children are born to immigrant parents who returned to their country of origin, either voluntarily or because they were deported.In 2015, more than half a million US citizen children lived in Mexico having returned with their parents. These children may face language and school adjustments, stressful living arrangements and economic and heath challenges. Fewer than half of them report holding Mexican citizenship, complicating their access to health and social services.The well-being of US citizen children living in Mexico is the topic of today's A Health Podyssey. Sharon Borja, an assistant professor from the University of Houston, joins the program to discuss research she and colleagues published in the July 2021 issue of Health Affairs, an issue dedicated to borders, immigrants, and health.In the issue, Borja and colleagues investigated health insurance coverage among US citizen migrant children living in Mexico. They found that about half of US citizen migrant children living in Mexico had limited, inadequate health insurance, which is a barrier to receiving necessary health care services.Order your copy of the July 2021 issue of Health Affairs.Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

Behind the Pages: July 2021 Issue on Borders, Immigrants & Health

In July, Health Affairs published an issue dedicated to borders, immigrants, and health. A public health crisis is unfolding along and inside the US-Mexico border. Immigrants arriving at the US border are likely to have experienced political, economic, or interpersonal violence prior to their arrival, leading to unmet mental health and physical health needs. Immigrants detained at the border may face crime and violence in border towns as they await trial in the US, or prolonged stays in detention centers and family separations if they are able to cross the border. Immigrants in the US face health challenges that extend well beyond the border.Health policy issues are impacted by the continuously shifting demography of US immigrants. The July 2021 journal issue of Health Affairs and related content focuses on immigrants and borders and the impact on health policy. The issue examines recent trends in immigrant health and health care after the Great Recession and the nationwide implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).In today's episode of Health Affairs This Week, Senior Editors Leslie Erdelack and Jessica Bylander discuss the publication process and highlight research insights from the issue.Order your copy of the July 2021 issue of Health Affairs.Related Links: Borders, Immigrants & Health July 2021 Issue (Health Affairs) Health Policy Challenges Posed By Shifting Demographics And Health Trends Among Immigrants To The United States (Health Affairs) Immigrant Essential Workers Likely Avoided Medicaid And SNAP Because Of A Change To The Public Charge Rule (Health Affairs) Podcast: Many US Immigrants May Defer Health Care to Avoid ICE (A Health Podyssey) Health Care Has Few Plans To Address The Aging Immigrant Population (Axios) Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Castro | Stitcher | Deezer | Overcast

Episode 092 – Enabling Rare Disease Treatments with Sanath Kumar Ramesh – Founder & CEO of OpenTreatments

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 092 Enabling Rare Disease Treatments with Sanath Kumar Ramesh - Founder & CEO of OpenTreatments Sanath Kumar Ramesh’s son is one of only nine kids worldwide with an ultra-rare genetic disease called Sedaghatian Type Spondylometaphyseal Dysplasia (SSMD). He has a podcast called Raising Rare where he and his wife talk about their journey, finding a treatment for their son and they feature stories of others in the rare disease community. Sanath is joining me on this episode to talk about his new software platform called OpenTreatments, a nonprofit organization with a mission to enable treatments for all genetic diseases. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about yourself and your family? I have a 2 1/2 year old boy named Raghav who was born with challenges and he continued to miss milestones through his first year of life. On his first birthday, we learned he has an ultra-rare condition caused by a mutation in the gene GPX4. When Raghav was diagnosed with SSMD, we thought he was the only patient, but we've since found 8 other patients worldwide.  Can you tell us about OpenTreatments? My idea is to collaborate the knowledge and experience of biotech companies and academic researchers to help patient foundations build and run their gene therapies. We are starting with a pilot program of four diseases to understand how well the software program is working and identify any challenges the programs are experiencing. Our mission is to enable treatments for all genetic diseases regardless of rarity or geography. How can parents or patient groups work with OpenTreatments? There's a lot of risk in the drug development process and the amount of risk we take on is not like any investment any one of us has ever done in our lives. Even wealthy venture capitalists don't invest in drug developments because there's a high risk of losing money. For parents who have just received a diagnosis, they're struggling to understand what life has in store for them and embarking on drug development isn't well aligned. We focus mainly on patient groups who have a foundation started, have raised money and have a scientific advisory board.  Do you think biotech and pharma companies will eventually take interest in rare disease treatment missions? It's a challenging problem and I think the bottom line is risk. Pharma isn't interested in rare diseases with such a limited number of patients, like my son's disease, because the risk to treat a patient where a potentially adverse reaction can happen is a risky unknown. The decision becomes whether or not the risk is worth the benefit and what the benefit is when treating such a small number of patients. When there is a larger group of patients, there's also a bigger commercial upside and it's likely worth the risk to explore treatments. Several ideas have been proposed for getting ultra-rare diseases an alternate path to drug therapy, including getting more regulatory support or building collective treatment for ultra-rare diseases. Insurance providers could also potentially pay for the research and development of drug therapies because their spend burden is high over the lifetime of a patient. I don't know what the future holds, but I do know that we need more people in drug development so ideas can be tried and tested.
