Breaking barriers in Medicaid access
Join us in this insightful podcast episode as we discuss the challenges and importance of Medicaid access in the United States. Our guests include Fatima Al-Shimari, an epidemiologist, and medical students Miriam Al-Saedy and Salsabeal Al-Saedy. We delve into the limited availability of Medicaid providers and its impact on health care access for low-income individuals. We explore the disparities across states and regions, the role of government reimbursements in provider acceptance, and the benefits of increasing reimbursements. We also address potential arguments against such increases and highlight the positive outcomes they can bring. Additionally, we discuss the implications of stable coverage and improved access to care on reducing health disparities and improving health outcomes for low-income populations. Our guests emphasize the role of health care professionals in advocating for equitable policies and ensuring access to care for all patients. Tune in to gain valuable insights and understand the proactive approaches policymakers can take to strengthen and expand Medicaid programs.
They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “Raising reimbursements: the Medicaid imperative.”
The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience.
Ambient intelligence augments human capabilities to make our lives easier. The applications are many, especially in health care. Ambient clinical intelligence is offsetting the most pressing challenges in health care today, such as burnout, physician shortages, physician and patient dissatisfaction, and underperforming financial outcomes, by applying the technology to clinical documentation.
The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician’s review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS’s top 20 emerging solutions.
