Artificial Intelligence: A Recipe for Better Health Care

Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used more and more in the health care sector. As with any new technology or innovation, users and developers are still working through potential issues. So what’s being done to ensure AI is being developed and used in the right way for health care? In this episode, we explore the importance human judgment and oversight plays in developing and applying AI. With proper use, AI holds the potential to vastly improve how business and clinical professionals work across the health care system—and the experiences for all of us as the end consumer.

Mental Health, Relationship Alchemy and All the Things

Today’s a different kind of show. Not quite the “softer side of Sears,” but perhaps a more introspective look beneath the veil of mental health and all the things that piss us off, like cat posters. Seriously? Have we not yet gotten over cat posters? Today I welcome Marie-Elizabeth Mali, self-proclaimed “relationship alchemist,” two words I’ve never heard spoken in succession that we will break that down during the episode. In the cancer world, we talk about isolation as the number one mental health affliction of diagnosis and how finding your community is of paramount importance for many to not feel stigmatized or judged. But the same is true for relationships because we all have unmet basic human needs and too often find ourselves unwoke to becoming unwired. Marie-Elizabeth believes that we are all creative people in some way. I somewhat agree because, I mean, anyone can play the radio. [Ba Dum Tss!] But seriously, there is something afoot, exacerbated further each day by our current polarized climate, about aloneness vs. isolation, defensiveness vs. reflection, and exceptionalism vs. craving generosity and tolerance, Enjoy the show. More about Marie-Elizabeth Mali here.

Episode #108 – Fixing Healthcare for Everyone, with Vivian S. Lee MD

Friends & Colleagues, The focus of this episode is of immediate importance to all of us. It’s especially important right now, in the month before the inauguration of President-elect Biden & VP-elect Kamala Harris. (Of note, this interview was recorded in late August, so we were unaware of the election outcomes). The topic is ‘fixing’ healthcare and our guest today is Dr. Vivian Lee, the President of Health Platforms at Verily. Dr. Lee recently published a book entitled -The Long Fix - Solving America’s Healthcare Crisis with Strategies that work for Everyone - in which she explains the fundamental problems in healthcare and provides practical solutions. The book speaks directly to policy makers, providers, payers & patients. In this interview, we’ll hit the high points of the book and get a sense of the priority Dr. Lee assigns to certain problems. The book is remarkable and so is Dr. Lee. She is a Harvard-Radcliffe College graduate who obtained a doctorate in medical engineering from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar and then earned an M.D. with honors from Harvard Medical School. She has also earned an Executive MBA at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Dr. Lee is a radiologist and medical researcher who has authored over 200 peer-reviewed journals. Prior to her current role, Dr. Lee was the Dean & CEO of the University of Utah Health - one of the nation’s leading hospital and academic medical centers. During her tenure, she and her colleagues achieved numerous nationally recognized accomplishments in quality, safety, patient experience, growth and entrepreneurial commercialization. In 2019 she was ranked #11 among the ‘Most Influential People in Healthcare’ by Modern Healthcare.  She has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine. In this episode, Dr. Lee and I will touch on:A broad range of issues ranging from the mind boggling complexities of billing and payment, to the lack of price transparency, to the crippling and uncontrolled costs of medications, to the impact of healthcare costs on suppressing employee wages and retirement funds.The one issue Dr. Lee calls out as the core off-the-charts problem in the American healthcare system.Why Dr. Lee believes that it’s critically important for all citizens to understand how healthcare delivery works and what it would take to make it better. Why universal access to healthcare is not only the right thing to do from an ethical perspective, but also from a public health, productivity and economic point of view.Why Dr. Lee believes we must shift to value-based care in order for universal coverage/access to be optimally effective.I have to say that it was a privilege and a pleasure to speak with Dr. Lee.  Given her remarkable accomplishments, her brilliance, and the enormity of her current position, I was struck by how down-to-earth and humble she is. We didn’t have the opportunity to directly discuss the issue of leadership in healthcare; but an unspoken message that came across is that we need a leadership culture that Dr. Lee embodies - data-driven, humanistic, socially aware, and selfless - leadership that is, first and foremost, for the people.  Dr. Lee wrote this book for the American public - to bring some clarity to our complicated, opaque healthcare system. I applaud her for that.  Most importantly, I applaud her for the explicit intention to deliver solutions that work for everyone. Until Next Time, Be Well Zeev Neuwirth, MD

105: Naturalist Brittany Sumner on Living with Rare Disease Paramyotonia Congenita

Born and raised in South Carolina, 27-year-old Brittany Sumner always felt like she was different than her peers — both physically and mentally. At an early age, she began falling over without explanation, finding herself unable to climb stairs, going cross-eyed, experiencing slurred speech, choking on food, and feeling almost constant fatigue. It took some time to find a specialist who truly saw her symptoms as something more, and was finally able to diagnose her with a rare condition called Paramyotonia congenita (PMC). While the diagnosis gave her a sense of relief, it also scared her. What if she couldn't do the things she loved so much? What if she couldn't get a job because of her muscle disorder? Fast forward to her adult life: she is a wildlife biologist, outdoor educator, and conservationist. While she’s currently unemployed because of COVID-19, before the pandemic started she was working as a naturalist — taking students on hikes, teaching them about ecology and the outdoors, and leading conservation and sustainability study-abroad trips for high school students. Her passion is the environment and teaching the next generation about the importance of protecting it. While she’s busy inspiring kids, her students inspire her to get out of bed each morning, too — especially when she is having a bad pain day. In her free time, she loves to kayak, garden, hike, read, and spend time with her new niece! Tune in as Brittany shares: how she realized something was up…her muscles were recovering much more slowly and keeping her behind her peers physically, among other symptoms that she grew up in rural South Carolina, which affected access to the right kind of medical care for her condition that adrenaline makes her condition worse — so a fight-or-flight reaction can be very dangerous for her that the diagnosis was, in part, a relief for her — because it validated her sense that she was living with a condition that was affecting her body that PMC requires genetic testing to confirm — but nobody in her family has the gene mutation. However, there’s a 50% chance she can pass the disorder to her future children that PMC isn’t curable, and that the side-effects of medications she tried actually made her symptoms worse — she she opted out of medication and turned to lifestyle and nutrition that potassium and sodium most directly affect her muscle spasms that figuring out her triggers and symptom management has been a process of trial and error that she only connected to others living with PMC in recent years that the severity of symptoms and response to treatment varies widely from patient to patient her keys to successful movement: water, breaks, and snacks that extreme cold can cause paralysis for her how she’s working on communicating about her condition — especially because it’s invisible how gender has impacted her medical care how awareness is impacted by lack of research funding, and vice versa — where rare diseases often get lost in the shuffle that those living with PMC can’t go under general anesthesia (because of its potassium content) — and she still needs to figure out how to alert emergency care if necessary how she finds solace in nature

COVID-19 highlights chronic oppressive job conditions

"In medicine, the guise of 'professionalism' is an example of how an oppressive system has led us to believe that we ought not to advocate for our rights. It would be 'unprofessional' to organize for a better health care system for both patients and workers. To work towards personal liberation, Boal calls for a transformational process to bypass the censorship of habit and find ‘antibodies’ to oppression. With this situation so clearly revealed, the COVID-19 crisis has become an unprecedented moment for physician organizing. Where does this leave the mental health profession and their role in managing this current crisis? We are very much equipped to address individual concerns. But addressing systemic issues does not come naturally to the mental health profession, which was founded in large part on individually-based approaches. But any approach to mental health today must recognize that if the system we work in is making us sick, then it is not enough to change ourselves." Eden Almasude is a psychiatry resident. She shares her story and discusses the KevinMD article that she co-wrote, "COVID-19 is the symptom. Chronic oppressive job conditions are the disease."
