Using AI in the Outpatient Clinic

In this episode, we are privileged to host the fantastic Dr. Rajiv Sivendran, Co-Founder and CEO at Apprentice Health. He is an expert in the simulation space and optimization of resources. Rajiv is driven by the desire to solve problems in healthcare, and the idea for his company started when he was doing his MBA at Harvard.    Rajiv explains simulations and modeling, and links that to resource allocation and logistics in healthcare. He also discusses queueing theory, starting simulations in healthcare, the different variables involved, and ways to collect the healthcare data needed for the simulation. We hyper-focus on the power of the simulation approach and where it is heading. Rajiv provides powerful examples of simulations and where they can and cannot be successful. We also cover the marketing, ROI side of simulation, and more.    There are many potential uses of simulations, and this conversation is an excellent start to learn about it and how you can use it in your clinic or hospital, so tune in!   About Rajiv Sivendran, MD Rajiv Sivendran is the Co-Founder and CEO at Apprentice Health, a software that helps to deliver exceptional care by improving the use of their valuable resource - clinical time and space. Before Apprentice, he worked as an Attending Physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital and as a Clinical Fellow and Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.    Key Takeaways: You have to understand the laws of nature that govern that specific niche.  A standard practice doesn't do simulation.  It is simpler to get started on something simple.  It is hard to build the data set in simulation.  Each sensor is uniquely identified to them when a patient comes in.  You can build your nuance into your simulation model. It could be super simple, or it could be super complex. Every doctor obeys the same rule of queueing.  The model can take different inputs to provide outputs specific to practice.  There are so many variabilities in healthcare.    Resources LinkedIn: Twitter: @rajiv_sivendran Website:

What does patient engagement mean in healthcare, and how do you define it?

Todd Johnson’s work has always been about how we can make a patient’s experience more continuous. One of the most significant opportunities Todd recognizes in the use of these integration systems is behavior change. Information processing may be overwhelming, and this is why moving to digital systems will make this easier. The outcome is a win-win relationship for both patients and medical staff. Patients will have better clinical experiences; meanwhile, the team will save time.  Patient engagement is increasing over time with these technologies. Tune in to this episode to know much more about where we are headed.  About Todd Johnson Todd Johnson is a serial entrepreneur committed to building innovative products that engage patients and connect them to their care teams. He builds strong companies on products that address market needs and offer long-term strategic potential from great ideas. He is leading HealthLoop's evolution to become the foundation for GetWell Loop™ and managing the acquired Mountain View, Calif. office. Once the integration process is complete, his focus will influence GetWell Loop’s product development and sales strategy.  Todd holds a Bachelor of Administration in computer science from Cornell University. Key Take-aways  The gold standard in integration is to have all the information and data from a patient available.  Integration and Data systems create a win-win relationship.  This transformation in-patient care requires leadership and a change in how we think about it.  When deploying this technology, patient engagement was variable.  Patients will use these apps when it’s a way to communicate with the medical team instead of following instructions from it.  Resources Connect and Follow Todd on LinkedIn here: Learn more about the LearnMore GetWell Network here: Source:

What is 'Interoperability' in healthcare and why is it important?

The systems that store your health records across different providers are probably not talking to each other. Even if they are, it certainly didn't happen by accident.  This is a problem Niko Skievaski is working to solve. Interoperability is a technical term that comes from outside of healthcare. The meaning of it is when two or more systems can share data with each other.  Niko explains that there are three levels of Interoperability: The first level is one in which data is shared between systems or providers. The second level is within a single care setting, known as Integration. The last and third one is giving patients their data or Patient Authorized data Access.  The topic of data is something we could discuss for hours - but we don't have that kind of time! Instead, this episode is a greatly simplified way to understand it!   About Niko SkievaskiNiko Skievaski is a co-founder of Redox, a modern API layer for EHR integration. Before Redox, he co-founded a co-working space and business incubator in Madison that attracts fellow former-Epic employees interested in startups.  With Redox, he has raised $4 million to make an API that works as a bridge between healthcare data and the software that uses it, translating patients' records across platforms.  Niko has a Bachelor of Arts/Science from Arizona State University and a Master of Arts from Boston University. Key Take-aways  HL7 is the most used integration standard used.  HL7 can be understood as a language.  Integration space needs to be bi-directional.  API stands for Application Program Interface  Interoperability is in the middle of data governance and the legal part of sharing.  A patient’s data could be hundreds of pages long. We have information at our fingertips during this century. Resources Connect and Follow Niko on LinkedIn here:  Know more about Redox here: Medcity News:,Health%20IT%2C%20Startups  Forbes:

How to Deliver Healthcare in 250+ Languages

The importance of understanding each other: video remote interpreting platforms. Health disparities are as broad and different as a color palette. Jamey Edwards works to improve them with Cloudbreak Health. Trust in the patient-provider encounter is essential and necessary in the 21st Century. This is why he started providing language services to enhance these barriers in medicine. The pandemic has caused everything to turn towards digital solutions. What used to be an in-person visit, now is an email or a phone call. This is where telemedicine is headed: the simplification of processes from the providers’ side. Also, the collaboration between institutions will boost to improve a single patient's experience.  Join Stefano and Jamey in this beautiful conversation about how technology will #humanizehealthcare! About Jamey Edwards Jamey is on a mission to fix healthcare. Jamey has founded and co-founded companies in hospital management, physician outsourcing, and telemedicine as a serial entrepreneur.

What is Virtual Reality? And how can it be used in healthcare?

In this episode we do a deep dive into virtual reality, and we are honored to feature a doctor synonymous with VR, Dr. Justin Barad.  In this interview, Justin defines virtual reality, shares some background context and history, and discusses some of the advantages of training in the VR world. He also talks about VR in healthcare, especially in surgery, pain, anxiety management, psychiatric space, and optometry space. Justin also shares his thoughts on possible areas of VR applications, how technology should be used in healthcare, and some studies showing a significant increase of skill transfer in the use of Osso VR.  Learn more about virtual reality and its impact on healthcare in this exciting episode of DH 101. Please tune in! About Justin Barad, MD Justin is the Co-Founder and CEO at Osso VR, a surgical training and assessment platform that teaches medical procedures in a highly realistic virtual environment. He is a board-eligible orthopedic surgeon with a Bioengineering degree from UC Berkeley and an MD from UCLA, where he graduated first in his class. He completed his residency at UCLA and his fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital. Key Takeaways: There's too much to learn in healthcare, and doctors cannot know it all.  There was an accelerating need for some way to train people remotely without needing to be physically together and without having access necessarily to patients, cadavers, or equipment. The VR platform is broadly applicable. In healthcare, it takes a village, and everything's a partnership.  Have a realistic expectation of what VR is and isn't. Working with technology is a skill set. First, you need to have a basic understanding of how the software works.   We need to make space and provide education around technology and integrate it more. We need to start thinking about how we can systematize creating the next generation of healthcare technologies.

She is a board member or advisor for many organizations including RAND Health, Open Notes, and Harvard Medical School’s Executive Council of the Division of Sleep Medicine.Key Insights:For Alexandra, community is the front line of health. She believes that healthcare should be driven by love and compassion, and that we are all more alike as humans than we are different.Humanity in Healthcare. Alexandra shares a personal anecdote about how healthcare is sometimes rigid and callous to the very patients it’s supposed to serve. Healthcare should be guided by kindness, support, and most importantly, love. (12:49)Don’t Get Comfortable. Making assumptions is risky. Especially with COVID-19, much of healthcare is in uncharted territory. If you feel confident that you have all the right answers, be afraid because that bubble might pop. (19:57)Life on the Edge. Part of being an entrepreneur is experiencing the constant whiplash between success and failure. There will always be ups and downs, so make sure to have a support system for the downs.

A doctor turned Hollywood actor on physicians who struggle with suicidal ideation

"Thanks for gathering today in this anonymous detached space. Since it’s unlikely that we’ll ever publicly convene in a circle on metal folding chairs, I’m reaching out through this letter. You can peruse this in private and perhaps see a piece of yourself here. As a non-practicing physician who speaks openly about my decades of suicidal ideations, I know there’s a thirst for connection on this topic. Colleagues pull me aside to whisper that they, too, have felt “that way.” See this letter as my way of firing a flare into the dark cavernous topic of physician suicide in order to faintly shed light and, above all, signal that you are not alone." Eliza Shin is an actor and former radiologist. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "To my fellow physicians who are struggling with suicidal ideation." (

Healthcare on the Mend with Jessica Neyer

Meet today's guest, Jessica Neyer, VP of Strategy for Mend, a telehealth company.  Jessica has a background also in Pharma Sales and Health tech. The focus of her work is the patient journey, how it interacts with the practice of the physician and the organization as a whole. In this episode, Jessica highlights the role of teamwork and diversity of ideas in innovation, as well as her work so far in telehealth to revolutionize patient experience. Top Takeaways • [05:43] Tools that can help healthcare workers learn more about organizations include Crunchbase, which is used to search for particular aspects in healthcare of interest, places related, and opportunities out there. It is however important for workers to first identify what exactly they want. Other recommendations include HLTH newsletters and HIMSS.  • [11:13] Lessons from experience: Trust your team, you will get incredible support and people will step up. • [15:33] Focusing solely on work in life can have a detrimental effect on your work due to accumulated fatigue while prioritizing other aspects of life helps to fit in better into the workplace thereby increasing productivity.   • [17:30] Tools for building intimate team connections: Being able to communicate the purpose of the work team members are doing and how it affects them, goes a long way to motivate them. • [21:21] Best 'Aha' moment: This was coming up with strategies for telehealth patients to be engaged and encouraged to stay while in the waiting room till their physician visit, rather than stare at a blank screen.  • [28:11] Current challenges in healthcare: Leaders and practitioners trying to decide on whether to continue telehealth need to understand that patients now see the benefits and want to continue. However, there is the challenge of integrating telehealth with real-life consultations.  • [30:30] Leaders are encouraged to find people that are open to having conversations with others, rather than just sticking with their ideas; ideas from different people push innovation and move the organization forward.   • [34:28] Jessica's inspiration comes from the innovation of strategies to replace blank screens in telehealth. In turn, giving teams the understanding behind their work helps her to inspire them.  • [35:29] Best career advice: Don't fear the unknown. • [38:13] It is pivotal to have some form of activity that helps get some release from accumulated work fatigue and stress in order to be a better worker.  • [39:40] Website recommendation: Crunchbase.  • [40:07] A professional society recommendation: HIMSS and HLTH.  • [40:47] Book recommendation:  • [42:05] Jessica's message to herself: Enjoy the journey, don't always be thinking of what in your career is going to come next.  • [44:26] Embrace the unknown, this will help us move forward personally and professionally. Connect with Jessica Key Quotes:  "Nothing ever good came from doing it easy"  "If you don't have the patient experience down for your practice, you're going to lose that patient"  "80% of patients want to continue doing telehealth post-pandemic"  "We need to all embrace the unknown and get comfortable with the uncomfortable, now more than ever"  "Enjoy every moment and be present, because you never know where it's going to take you" Connect:  Find | Jessica Neyer LinkedIn @Jessica Neyer Email -  --- Send in a voice message:

Doctors Just Took a Pay Cut – VBP in 2022 with Gail Zahtz – Part 3

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program final rule on November 2, and there are big changes to physician payments. In particular, the Medicare conversion factor, which forms the basis for payments to clinicians, will be lowered by 3.7%. There’s nuance in calculating the payments, but you can sum this up as most doctors will take a pay cut in 2022. And since the final rule goes into effect on January 1, 2022, doctors will begin feeling the cuts in Q1 revenue. The rule is specific to Medicare, but there are plans to push similar changes in Medicaid and we all know commercial payers tend to follow CMS’ lead. We believe this change will have a ripple effect across the industry. On this episode, I talk with Gail Zahtz, CEO at PropHealth, as part of our ongoing Value-based Payment in 2022 series about what doctors can expect in terms of Medicare FFS payment come January 1, 2022. We discuss this as another example of CMS trying to make Fee-for-Service less “comfy” and expedite the move to value-based payment models. Gail helps us to understand what options exist and we lay out a framework for how to evaluate those options. This is a heavy episode, and there are no clear answers. However, there is a known direction and a viable path forward. We’ll try to get you moving in the right direction.   For full show notes and links:

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded in November, 2021 Guest:  Gregory A. Poland, M.D. (@drgregpoland) Host: Halena M. Gazelka, M.D. (@hmgazelkamd) Cold weather, increased travel, waning immunity and the potential for new variants may serve up the perfect recipe for a holiday COVID-19 surge, according to Dr. Gregory Poland, head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group.   "I have consistently said what's very likely to happen as we get to the cooler weather and see the trends in travel is that we will have another surge," says Dr. Poland. "We're in this unusual situation where the pandemic is actually getting worse because humans don't want to believe that the pandemic is just as important now as it was a year ago." In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland answers several listener questions and talks more about being vigilant against COVID-19 as the U.S. heads into a second winter with this coronavirus. He also addresses the recent news that wild deer have shown evidence of COVID-19 infection and what that might mean in the battle to eliminate the disease.  AskMayoExpert COVID-19 Resources: Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.
