COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates, Paid Sick Leave, and the Economy

Earlier this week, the White House released its "path out of the pandemic," which notes the FDA is currently evaluating a COVID-19 vaccine for children under the age of 12.A major pillar in the plan is to reduce the number of unvaccinated Americans by using regulatory powers to increase Americans covered by vaccination requirements. For example, the plan requires that all employers with more than 100 employees ensure their workers are vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19.As Health Affairs' Senior Editors Ellen Bayer and Leslie Erdelack note in today's Health Affairs This Week, the workplace is an important focus for public health efforts, as it can be a place where disease spreads. Because of this, paid sick leave policies are important when thinking about public health. However, the US lags behind other countries when it comes to guaranteeing paid sick leave. Listen to Ellen Bayer and Leslie Erdelack go over President Joe Biden's latest path out of the COVID-19 pandemic and how paid sick leave can influence public health.View the Full Agenda for Health Affairs' NEW EVENT SERIES.Related Links: Path Out of the Pandemic (White House) COVID-19 Emergency Sick Leave Has Helped Flatten The Curve In The United States (Health Affairs) Olive Garden's Expansion Of Paid Sick Leave During COVID-19 Reduced The Share Of Employees Working While Sick (Health Affairs) US Sick Leave In Global Context: US Eligibility Rules Widen Inequalities Despite Readily Available Solutions (Health Affairs) Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Castro | Stitcher | Deezer | Overcast

Spin-offs and Joint Ventures: Another way to Innovate with The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic

There are many ways to innovate within an existing organization. However, it can be difficult to move as fast as you’d like within the constructs of an established business model and culture. For one, it’s difficult for your team to innovate on top of their “day job”. Second, it can be difficult to hire and incentivize the right people to drive the innovation within your existing constructs. These are the types of issues that the folks at Cleveland Clinic identified as reasons for not innovating fast enough in telemedicine. They decided that if they were going to pick up the pace, they were going to have to take a different approach. The Clinic is a joint venture between Cleveland Clinic and Amwell that connects patients with Cleveland Clinic physicians for online second opinions. Together they are using the latest telemedicine technology to, as CEO Frank McGillen put it, “unlock access to the world’s best medical care”. On this episode, we talk with Frank McGillen, CEO, and Peter Rasmussen, MD, Chief Clinical Officer of The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic to understand why one of the best known global brands in healthcare decided that a JV startup was the best way to bring this innovation to market quickly. We discuss: The problem that needed to be solved The benefits of the spin-off/startup approach The benefits of partnering with vs. hiring a technology vendor How they were able to get Cleveland Clinic physicians on board The importance of unique business models in a competitive marketplace How they are measuring the success of their second opinion service How they are measuring the success of this innovation approach Advice for organizations who are considering a startup/spin-off approach to innovation   About The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic The Clinic is a visionary joint venture that combines the unrivaled clinical expertise of Cleveland Clinic with Amwell’s industry-leading telehealth platform. Through innovative solutions like our Virtual Second Opinions, we enable easy, secure access to the highest quality medical expertise. Patient-centric and deeply collaborative, we are passionate about realizing the global possibilities of digital health, providing advanced solutions that help tame the costs of care while enabling patients to achieve better outcomes and the greatest degrees of hope.   Learn more: Web: https://theclinic.io/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/digitalhealth1/ Anthem signs on with Cleveland Clinic’s, Amwell’s virtual second opinions service   Full show notes and links: https://thehcbiz.com/172-spin-offs-and-joint-ventures-with-the-clinic-by-cleveland-clinic   The #HCBiz Show! is produced by Glide Health IT, LLC in partnership with Netspective Media.

Modern Access Models for Access Management and Directory Services with Sirius and Duo

September 8, 2021: We all log in to our machines to get started with our day.  While this used to be just a terminal at your desk or workstation, the devices are with us all the time.
