Episode 82: Partnerships for High-Tech Imaging

As rural hospitals work to serve their patients locally, accessing state-of-the-art, cutting-edge or advanced imaging technologies can be a barrier, meaning patients either leave town for care or don’t get care at all. So, how do rural hospitals expand their offerings to give patients the care they need at home? On today’s episode, hosts JJ and Rachel talk with Brian Madison, president and CEO of The HCS Group, about the need for advanced imaging in rural communities and how to meet it.

Bruce Broussard on Catalyzing Change Through Crisis

Unprecedented speed, collaboration, efficiency and results, all driving innovation: this is what healthcare has accomplished in the last few years. But as we settle into a new status quo, there is a pervasive sentiment that our industry is reverting to inefficiency. Embracing the evolution of healthcare requires that we embrace methods born of crisis as long-term solutions and evolve business models to meet new consumer demands. The way forward is clear–a collaborative approach, catalyzed by interoperability.Bruce Broussard (President & CEO, Humana) joins CareTalk for a special episode recorded in front of a live audience at the EMIDS Healthcare Summit 2022.ABOUT CARETALKCareTalk is a weekly podcast that provides an incisive, no B.S. view of the US healthcare industry.

Once Upon A Gene: Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator – Bre Gastaldi

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 153 Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator - Bre Gastaldi Bre Gastaldi is known as the Inclusive Educator and she teaches school districts how to implement inclusive practices. She's also a special education teacher. She joins me for a discussion on diversity and inclusion in all aspects of education and the school setting.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about yourself and your work as an inclusion expert? I got into special education by way of my own neurodivergence. I was diagnosed with ADHD in middle school, studied psychology as an undergrad and I started understanding myself better and fell in love with psychology and working with kids. I got my masters degree and began teaching, eventually becoming an inclusion specialist. I was also looking for ways to include my students in a variety of activities. My students excelled because of it, the school culture shifted and I began working with other teachers and administrators to improve inclusion practices. I have since branched off and became the Inclusive Educator.  What is the biggest misconception around inclusion? Inclusion isn't a program because true inclusion exists within your child's general education classroom- it's not a class they go to. If only certain students can be in an inclusion program, it isn't inclusive. Inclusion is an undeniable sense of belonging from the time a child walks into a classroom. It's a feeling of belonging and being valued and celebrated.  How does inclusion affect a general education student? A 2008 analysis of several studies found that inclusion had a neutral to positive impact on neurotypical students in 81% percent of studies. When there's an inclusive classroom and culture, all students are learning more. School districts doing a good job being inclusive reveals an increase of graduation rates. Inclusion impacts general education students in that they improve in academics, but they're also socializing with a reduced sense of fear, they generally have a stronger self esteem and better sense of self. What are your top tips for inclusion? Let your child lead because they will tell you one way or another when they're ready to participate more. As a parent, be intentional about making positive connections with the multidisciplinary team. If your child isn't being included, start slowly with focusing on what their interests are.

AI Revolution

Meet John Glaser, Ph.D.:John Glaser, Ph.D. is an Executive in Resident at Harvard Medical School and recently published “Advanced Introduction to Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare.” Previously, Dr. Glaser joined Cerner Corporation as an Executive Senior Advisor, due to their acquisition of Siemens Health Services, where he was CEO. Prior to that, he served as the CIO for Partners HealthCare, now known as Mass General Brigham. Dr. Glaser sits on multiple boards of directors including the Scottsdale Institute, NCQA, and Forbes Health Advisory Board. Key Insights:John Glaser is a thought leader in the field of healthcare IT. He explores what leaders must know as AI becomes more prevalent in the healthcare industry.  Defining AI. Dr. Glaser defines AI as a machine that perceives its environment, and based on that perception, takes steps to maximize chances of success. One type of AI is deep learning, which is when a machine is fed large amounts of data and can then output an interpretation of new data.Data Challenges. AI rests on data. Data may need to be cleaned before use, adding extra steps. Data may be skewed or biased, potentially introducing ethical concerns. Healthcare adds an additional challenge of validation as doctors don’t always agree on diagnosis given the same data. Implementation. Dr. Glaser recommends the CIO or CDO put together a multidisciplinary AI committee that evaluates potential AI products and selects a certain number to pilot. The committee can define who is accountable for conducting and tracking the pilot, but ultimately the entire C-suite is accountable for AI support and implementation.  Relevant Links:Check out Dr. Glaser’s book “Advanced Introduction to Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare”Check out articles written by Dr. Glaser in the Harvard Business Review

Episode 81: Reducing Transfers from Rural Hospitals

Rural hospitals often transfer patients for higher levels of care, both from the emergency room and their inpatient units. But sending them to another facility can be detrimental to the hospital, not to mention the hardship it creates for families and loved ones to visit during the patient’s hospitalization out of town. So, how do rural hospitals take care of their patients locally as often as possible? On today’s episode, hosts JJ and Rachel talk with Doris Whorley, Director of Risk Management, Patient Advocate and Recipient Rights Advisor, about the necessity of transfers and how to minimize them.

How is Parkinson’s Disease Diagnosed? And How Is a Care Team Created? Parkinson’s disease can’t be diagnosed through a simple blood test or scan. After a referral from a primary care doctor, it often takes visits to a neurologist or movement disorder specialist before receiving a clinical diagnosis.
