Today’s show will focus on building just culture within health care and creating environments where we can reduce medical errors and improve systems for better outcomes, accountability, and quality of care. Guests include Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Assistant Professors Jennifer Milesky and Nicole Mollenkopf. Podcast References and Resources: What Is Just Culture?

Patti Callahan Henry Untangles What it Means to Remember

What are memories? Do our memories make us who we are? What happens to “us” when our memory fails, and cognitive decline ensues? I discussed these profound questions with one of my favorite authors, Patti Callahan Henry. She is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of sixteen novels, a podcast host, and a co-creator and host of the popular show, Friends & Fiction. Prior to becoming an author, she was a Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist with a fascination for memory and focused on neurology and brain trauma. Her novel, The Favorite Daughter, joined our collection of carefully vetted books in November 2019.  “Memory,” she says, “haunts all my work but takes center stage in this one. Who do we become without those memories?”  Patti is the recipient of The Christy Award 2019 Winner “Book of the Year”; The Harper Lee Distinguished Writer of the Year for 2020, and the Alabama Library Association Book of the Year for 2019. She is also a contributor to the monthly life lesson essay column for Parade Magazine. A full-time author and mother of three, she now resides in both Mountain Brook, Alabama, and Bluffton, South Carolina with her husband. In this podcast, we explore how our memories define us, if they do, the landscape of memory, and the concept of “ambiguous loss.” After the Podcast Read Patti’s AlzAuthors post: Memory is at the Heart of Patti Callahan Henry’s The Favorite Daughter ​Purchase The Favorite Daughter on Amazon. https://amzn.to/2D9TDnQ Note: We are an Amazon Associate and may receive a small commission from book sales.  Connect with Patti Website Facebook Instagram Twitter Watch Friends & Fiction on Wednesdays at 7 pm, EST *** About the Podcast Each season our podcast brings you six of our authors sharing their dementia journeys.

Don’t Let Calling Your Office Be A Nightmare with Zed Williamson

We've all heard, "First impressions matter." Calling your office to schedule an appointment is your patient's first interaction with you and your practice. That call defines whether the patient schedules an appointment. And, their attitude toward future interactions with you and your office. Today, Zed Williamson from TrackableMed joins me to discuss how your staff can improve the impression patients get when they call your office.  One of the most valuable suggestions is to train your staff to answer the phone with a full-on smile. Now this may seem silly but if you try it you'll see the difference in the tone of your voice.Between automated phone attendants and online scheduling tools, patients have precious little interaction with your office. Those initial few words of greeting can make or break your success. Other valuable tips from this episode include:Call your own office as a secret shopperHave calls answered by a live personIf someone is put on hold, tell them how long it will beFill the dead space so they know they're still connectedAs you'll hear, "First impressions" do matter. Listen to this episode to learn what steps you need to have your staff take to get that patient's needs addressed and loving your practice.After spending years in advertising, Zed Williamson founded TrackableMed in 2011, a patient demand acceleration platform rooted in neuroscience. Zed grew frustrated by the lack of accountability in the advertising industry and started TrackableMed to focus on results. Today, you can find him reading, spending time with his wife and teenage sons, and running a highly innovative business that helps private practices create patient demand for their therapies.https://www.trackablemed.com/patient-engagement-solutionsIf you'd like to hear more tips on how to start, run and grow your practice and related medical businesses, please sign up for my newsletter at https://www.thepracticebuildingmd.com.   Be sure to join my FB group, The Private Medical Practice Academy.Enroll in my course,  How To Start Your Own Practice and get the step-by-step process for opening your doors.Or join The Private Medical Practice Academy Membership for live group coaching, expert guest speakers and everything you need to know to start, grow and leverage your private practice.

Interview with Dr. Heidi Schambra Director of Research Strategy in Neurology and Mobilis Lab NYU Langone

Know Stroke Podcast Episode 30 Stroke commonly damages motor function in the upper extremity (UE), leading to long-term disability and loss of independence in a majority of individuals. Rehabilitation seeks to restore function by training daily activities, which deliver repeated UE functional motions. The optimal number of functional motions necessary to boost recovery is unknown. This gap stems from the lack of measurement tools to feasibly count functional motions.  Today's guest is Dr. Heidi Schambra from NYU Langone. She and her team at the Mobilis Lab, out of NYU Langone developed the PrimSeq pipeline to enable the accurate and rapid counting of building-block functional motions, called primitives. PrimSeq uses wearable sensors to capture rich motion information from the upper body, and custom-built algorithms to detect and count functional primitives in this motion data. They showed that their deep learning algorithm precisely counts functional primitives performed by stroke patients and outperformed other benchmark algorithms. The study also showed patients tolerated the wearable sensors and that the approach is 366 times faster at counting primitives than humans. PrimSeq provides a precise and practical means of quantifying functional primitives, which promises to advance stroke research and clinical care and to improve the outcomes of individuals with stroke. In our discussion we covered how this tool can translate into rehab happening in the clinical setting, a patient's home, and how insurers think about reimbursing stroke rehab.  About our guest: Dr. Heidi Schambra is an Associate Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Director of the Division of Neuro-Epidemiology, Director of Research Strategy in Neurology, and Director of the Mobilis Lab. Dr. Schambra received her BS in neuroscience from Brown University and MD from Emory University. She completed her training in neurology at Harvard-Partners and in neurorehabilitation at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. She also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in motor learning and noninvasive brain stimulation with Dr. Leonardo Cohen at NINDS/NIH. Dr. Schambra was on faculty at Columbia University until 2016, when she joined NYU Langone. When not in the lab, she can be found taxonomizing clouds, cute-aggressing her pets and husband, and menacing New York on a Citibike.

#7 – Redefining motor rehabilitation with digital neurotherapeutics – Naveed Ejaz – MindMaze

Naveed Ejaz is VP Product Strategy and Clinical Development (formerly Director of Digital Therapies) at MindMaze, the very first unicorn from Switzerland, pioneering the fascinating field of digital neurotherapeutics. Underneath these fluffy terms lies the concept of “software-as-a-medicine”, where pieces of code come together to drive a behavioural intervention, enabling patients suffering from neurological diseases to improve their condition. In the area of neurology where pharmaceutical and medical device solutions have been limited, this field opens up promising perspectives in terms of extended care delivery, stronger engagement from patients towards their treatment plans, and facilitated care coordination. We talked with Naveed about how video games could be leveraged to create an engaging therapy for the benefits of patients suffering from neurological diseases, the challenges that companies involved in the field of digital therapeutics face, MindMaze’s vision to build an integrated platform delivering cutting-edge rehabilitation programs for patients, and why all of that is not purely about technology but rather engaging the patients as much as all healthcare professionals surrounding them. We also get a sneak peek at the activities led within MindMaze Labs, the R&D division of the company partnering with institutions like Formula One to understand better how the brain works under extreme situations! Timeline: 04:43 - Naveed’s background and what drove him towards neuroscience and neurorehabilitation 13:03 - What digital neurotherapeutics are and what “software-as-a-medicine” entails 20:30 - Conceptual acceptability towards digital neurotherapeutics in healthcare 23:38 - The benefits of gamification in neurorehabilitation therapies 29:44 - How the rehabilitation therapies from MindMaze are designed 42:57 - The key characteristics of a therapeutic video game that keeps patients engaged 47:15 - Rehabilitating fine dextrous motion versus gross movement 52:04 - Naveed’s role as VP Product Strategy and Clinical Development (formerly Director of Digital Therapies) 55:03 - Initiatives led by MindMaze Labs R&D center and partnering with Formula One What we also talked about with Naveed: BrainGate John Krakauer Johns Hopkins University MindMaze Labs Formula One If you want to know more about MindMaze, we invite you to consult their website and follow their activities on LinkedIn.
