Empowering Patients with their Medical Data with Carm Huntress, Founder and CEO at Credo

Let's empower patients to live their healthiest lives with Credo. In this episode, we hear from Carm Huntress, the Founder, and CEO of Credo, about the development of digital healthcare systems that enables patients access to their medical record data. Many organizations and providers doing value-based care still operate through phone and fax when it comes to healthcare information exchanges that overlook patients. Credo seeks to provide a digital service that relieves the burden of carrying out those processes manually and enables patients access to their information. Carm discusses the benefits and obstacles of several factors that play a role in Credo’s goal like interoperability networks, healthcare data comprehensibility, and digital technology infrastructure. He explains how the platform will increase care quality and accessibility to empower patients with their data to improve their health. Tune in to this episode to listen about how Credo will impact healthcare systems with their medical record data platform! Click this link to the show notes, transcript, and resources:

A Rare Collection – Up At Night

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 135 A Rare Collection - Up at Night There's power in storytelling- for the listener and the storyteller. A Rare Collection is a monthly series featuring people from the rare disease community, sharing a story with a common theme.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Mike Gralia, Dad to Tony and Founder of the Syngap Research Fund Mike recalls the nights insomnia kept him awake, looking at Tony as he rested, and wondering what his life would hold. In the darkness of night, his fears had the freedom to emerge. Tony wouldn't sleep without hours of walking the hall, singing and rocking. Then he'd wake up in the middle of the night crying. Mike and his wife had demanding jobs and the lack of sleep took its toll. When he was three years old, Tony began having seizures and he was diagnosed within a year with SynGAP1, which causes major sleep disturbances. Each day as the sun sets, Mike knows he's going to watch the rerun of a series he knows all too well.  Jennifer Sills, Mom to Jules and Founder of CSNK2A1 Foundation Jules, who has Okur-Chung Neurodevelopmental Syndrome (OCNDS), suffers from a severely disrupted sleep pattern. Jennifer shares of her loneliest nights, staring at the computer, searching for answers for Jules and an explanation for her symptoms. After Jules was diagnosed, the late night internet searches continued and revealed there were no OCNDS resources. Now, the nights aren't as lonely, as Jennifer has discovered over 190 families affected by OCNDS worldwide. She finds comfort in her community and knows she's not the only parent suffering from crushing fatigue. She finds comfort in reflecting on all that Jules has taught her about having purpose and perspective. Charlene Son Rigby, Mom to Juno and Founder of SDXBP1 Foundation As a night owl in college, Charlene spent countless hours hanging out with friends. After college, being a night owl leant itself well to life in the startup world. She prided herself on only sleeping 5 to 6 hours a night with so much to do. After having kids, nights became quiet and peaceful, a time to focus on projects and creative work. When her daughter Juno was diagnosed with SDXBP1 disorder, her nights turned into hours of worry and researching medical papers. Nights were driven by urgency to help Juno and driven by fear for her future. But nights were also driven by optimism and a belief that science could and would help.  Sunita Malepati, CACNA1A Foundation Sunita was told when she had her first child, sleep when the baby sleeps, but she was never good at taking that advice. Sunita pulls a second shift, staying up late, trying to figure out how to cure her daughter's rare disease, a CACNA1A-related disorder. After receiving a diagnosis, Sunita turned her grief and despair into hope and action. The CACNA1A Foundation became her second shift. As a rare disease patient advocacy organization, the foundation is focused on finding treatments and cures for the CACNA1A community by building a collaborative network of patients, families, clinicians and scientists.  CONNECT WITH EFFIE PARKS Website Twitter Instagram Built Ford Tough Facebook Group

64: What Will Variant Sigma Look Like?, with Michael T. Osterholm, Ph.D., Regents Professor, Division of Environmental Health Science; Director, Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) University of Minnesota

Meet Michael Osterholm, Ph.D.:Michael Osterholm, Ph.D. is a Regents Professor, the Director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy (CIDRAP), and McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Osterholm was appointed to President Biden’s Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board. He is author of “Deadliest Enemy” and hosts “The Osterholm Update: COVID-19” podcast. Dr. Osterholm received a Ph.D. and MS in Environmental Health and an MPH in Epidemiology from the University of Minnesota. Key Insights:Dr. Osterholm is a distinguished leader in a variety of areas including as a scientist, public health official, author, professor, and advisor. The State of the Pandemic. Pre-existing immunity from vaccines and prior infections clearly reduce severe illness and deaths. However, Dr. Osterholm questions, what’s after Omicron? What will variant Pi and Sigma look like? Viral evolution indicates that upcoming variants will be more infectious and have more immune system evasion. We must be prepared. (13:16)Lessons from Pandemics. There are sociological lessons to learn from previous disease outbreaks. The duration of the 1918 pandemic was around three years. However, after about a year, the public gave up on public health recommendations, and stopped acting on or accepting protections. (28:41)Vaccine Technology. Dr. Osterholm predicts we will see new vaccine technologies that are more immune enhancing. COVID-19 mRNA vaccines provide a rapid antibody response, which wanes in a matter of months. Adenovirus vaccines initially seemed less effective, but result in a stronger T-cell response, which is a more durable immunity. New vaccine technology will need to produce a complex immune response, rather than focusing on just the antibody response.

How this nurse leader forged her own path

Our guest for this episode realized early on in her career as a nurse executive that a traditional health system career path was not for her. Since then she’s done everything from work as a clinical professor in a college of nursing, serve as the president of a state nursing board, write a number of nursing textbooks, and consult with hospitals and health systems on innovation and leadership.     Given the depth and breadth of Kathy Malloch’s career, it makes sense that her conversation with Dan would be similarly wide-ranging. Today they talk about where education for nurse leaders can improve, the tool sets that are needed in complex systems, how Kathy handled cases involving medical errors when she was the president of the Arizona State Board of Nursing and what she sees as the obligation of nurses to continually advance their skills and the profession.    Links to recommended reading:  Introduction to Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing and Healthcare  Quantum Leadership: Creating Sustainable Value in Health Care: Creating Sustainable Value in Health Care  Leadership in Nursing Practice: Changing the Landscape of Health Care: Changing the Landscape of Health Care  Appreciative Leadership: Building Sustainable Partnerships for Health: Building Sustainable Partnerships for Health  Arizona Board of Nursing  The full transcript for this episode can be found here:

(Guido Grillenmeier), Chief Technologist at Semperis and (Matt Sickles), Solutions Architect at Sirius Healthcare walk us through Semperis Purple Knight. A free tool to help you find your most dangerous vulnerabilities. AD is typically a weak point for HC organizations. 90% of attacks exploit AD. It is very difficult to gain an understanding of where your AD is at risk. Purple Knight maps those indicators to the MITRE ATTandCK Framework and provides guidance on how to fix the issues. As hackers, what defenses do we have to be concerned about? What will cause us to choose a different target? If we are detected will that just move our timeline up or will we move on? How long do we need access to the compromised AD to know if we can get to our target hack? How much time do we need in the target system? And flipping back to the other side, what can a CIO do today to ensure their health system is ready for an attack on their Active Directory? Key Points: AD is typically a weak point for HC organizations, 90% of attacks exploit AD It is very difficult to gain an understanding of where your AD is at risk You cannot secure older operating systems the same way as newer ones What is the state of active directory right now?

Luis Santiago on How a Recent Team Tragedy Brought PEGASI’s Health Moonshot Into Focus

Every company in the StartUp Health portfolio can draw a line between their business objectives and a very real human impact. Even companies working on highly technical, administrative solutions are doing so, at the end of the day, in order to help people get the care they need faster or better. Our stance is that no database integration, supply chain management tool, or insurance platform should exist apart from its ability to improve lives. In other words, health innovation is personal. For some founders, like our guest today, the human face of healthcare technology is startlingly clear. Our guest is Luis Santiago, the CEO and Co-founder of PEGASI, which StartUp Health backed in 2020. PEGASI is in the business of digitizing health information systems in Latin America, and they’re currently focused on upgrading those systems within oncology so that cancer patients can get diagnosed and treated sooner. That mission gained a tragic level of clarity this year as PEGASI’s CTO Janper Garbi went through a devastating battle with cancer. Luis Santiago shares that personal story, and how it could have ended differently had the hospital been using a digital platform to speed up diagnosis and treatment. This isn’t just a story about what could have been, but how a tragedy becomes fuel for a health moonshot that could improve the lives of millions. — Learn more and connect with the team a PEGASI. — Entrepreneurs: How to get investment from StartUp Health Investors: How to invest in StartUp Health Moonshots Want more content like this?

34: Bringing Clinical Trials to the Patient, with Jodi Akin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Hawthorne Effect, Inc.

Meet Jodi Akin: Jodi Akin is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Hawthorne Effect, a software service that  streamlines and decentralizes clinical trials. She is an Angle Investor and Advisor for Astia, Board  member for 510 Kardiac Devices, Inc., and the Chief Scientific Advisor for PiCardia, Inc. Previously,  she was the Vice President of Global Clinical Affairs at Edwards Lifesciences LLC. Jodi received a  Bachelor’s in Diplomacy, Economics and International Affairs from Georgetown University, and a  Master of Science in Nursing from Pace University. Key Insights: The Hawthorne Effect is changing the ecosystem of clinical trials. Defining Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is an attitude, not a stage of a company, according to Jodi. She didn’t set out to simply found a company, rather she felt a gravitational pull, a compulsion, to fix an aspect of healthcare. (10:39) Improved Patient Adherence. Hawthorne Effect brings clinical trials to the patient’s own home, rather than requiring the patient to go to a physical research institution. This removes transportation challenges for the patient, which increases adherence. Jodi cites that 97-98% of their patients adhere to clinical trials. (15:48) Hawthorne Heroes. Decentralized clinical trials are made possible by a gig network of medical professionals. This allows for geographically diverse trials, and these Heroes have additional opportunities for certification and training for different types of trials, with roles that range from patient visits to trial investigators. (18:03)This episode is hosted by Gary Bisbee, Ph.D. He is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Think  Medium. Relevant Links:Learn more about Hawthorne Effect Read “Startup Improves Clinical Trial Process To Ensure Better Healthcare For All” by  Forbes Listen to “Hawthorne Effect Founder and CEO Jodi Akin” on VatorNews podcasts
