DOCSF22: Integrating the Future of Health

In this episode, Daniel Kraft, founder of Exponential Medicine and Digital.Health, and chair of the XPRIZE Pandemic & Health Alliance talks about the internet of medical things and the future of medicine. Daniel reminisces on a TedTalk about medicine’s future and ten years later, he finds that we are in a new age of digitally connected and mobile health. For him, COVID brought transformation in an accelerated way in diagnostics, therapeutics, crowdsourcing trials, and beyond. Daniel believes the future of medicine consists in bringing multiple technologies together. He talks about developing technologies like digital twins, quantum computing, 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. He points out how smartphones today have become a powerful digital tool for individuals’ health as well. He thinks of digital health as the ability to take all new data, integrate it, make sense of it, and personalize it to the individual, clinician, or healthcare system needed. Daniel argues one of the challenges for medicine is keeping up with the innovation, which is why he’s built Digital.Health as a platform to address that problem. He thinks navigating the vast amount of applications and the data created from them and smart devices are getting more complicated. He talks about how the focus should be on producing insights and integrating them into the workflow. This information can provide an improvement in interaction with patients and accessibility. Daniel speaks about digital determinants of health as a new factor to take into account to optimize prevention, diagnostics, and therapeutics. He believes all these digital tools will upscale the healthcare space to a new golden age and democratize access. Listen to what Daniel Kraft, a noted visionary and futurist, has to say about creating the future of health, medicine, and orthopedics at DOCSF. Learn about the internet of medical things and why Daniel is certain that collaboration between innovators will bring forward a new age for health!

Why we Receive Experiences We Don’t Want and How to Change This, with Author & Facilitator, Barry Nicolaou

In this week’s episode, I am joined by Barry Nicolaou, a passionate facilitator of organisational cultural synergy and Best Selling Author. In this enlightening conversation, we discuss why so many of us receive experiences that we don’t want, and how we can change our perspective to have a more positive outlook.  Barry's ability to locate and define his true purpose in assisting others began in 2015. The Inspiration Barry absorbed one fateful day at a cemetery led him to write and publish a #1 Best Selling book on Amazon. His book, The 11 Master Secrets to Business Success and Personal Fulfillment outlines the 11 areas that intersect economic freedom with personal fulfillment.  His forte is in deconstructing the layers beneath cognitive fear, indecision, subconscious paradigms, inherited thinking, habitual thinking and their intimate relationship to real-world expectations and experiences. His presentation on Gratitude Leadership for corporations and numerous mental health programs have been added to his 1-1 work, assisting businesses to take a holistic look at their culture as an 'energy' that feeds straight to the bottom line.    Tune in to this week’s episode to learn: How our beliefs define our experiences & what this means for our thoughts  What pivotal moment changed Barry’s outlook & what it means to truly live ‘your’ life The three key elements that form our decisions & how to focus only on what you can control  Where to start when you feel you have no more to give; physically, emotionally or energetically    Grab your drink of choice and join the conversation!   Sponsor Visit today to learn more about locum tenens and see if it’s right for you:   Disclaimer The Healthcare Provider Happy Hour Podcast makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation as to the accuracy or sufficiency of the information featured in this Podcast.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome and long COVID

"ME/CFS is a complex multi-system illness that destroys lives (essentially killing the person yet leaving them alive).  It leaves patients with unimaginable fatigue, post-exertional malaise (meaning that minor exertion makes them feel worse), cognitive deficits, cardiovascular dysfunction, gastrointestinal malfunctions, unrefreshing sleep, pain, and much more. As a person who has lived with ME/CFS for 13 years, I urge everyone to avoid getting it at all costs.  I also want to protect people like myself from getting sick with COVID and having our illnesses worsen to even graver severities."

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecological cancer today. With the much-needed innovation in ovarian cancer research, it’s crucial women understand the complexity and potential for change in this disease. For Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we spoke with Oriana Papin-Zoghbi, the CEO and Co-founder of AOA Dx. AOA Dx is a biotech company focused on early-stage ovarian cancer detection, actively spreading awareness and working toward solutions for women’s health issues.

We cover the average ovarian cancer survival rate, some symptoms of ovarian cancer, and ways to advocate for better testing in women’s health. Discussed in this episode: Ovarian cancer statistics  What can women do to catch early signs of ovarian cancer? Difficulties doctors and women face in ovarian cancer diagnosis  Current diagnostic testing processes  The founding story of AOA Dx Why has it been so hard to get a diagnosis for ovarian cancer? Where AOA Dx is headed next Ways to medically advocate for yourself if you feel something’s wrong “The biggest thing I would say to women is: listen to your body.

4 steps to de-escalate hostile people

"The boundaries of unacceptable behavior have eroded in the past few years. Politicians, law enforcement, movie stars, health care providers, the health care system, and society, in general, are all acting badly occasionally. I’m amazed but no longer surprised every time it happens. Patients and family members behaving badly have captured headlines lately. I’m sad that in addition to Code Blue and Code Red, my hospital now has a Code Purple, indicating out-of-control parents. And I’m saddened that now, teaching residents how to deal with unruly people is a routine part of my curriculum." Ann F. Beach is a pediatric hospitalist.

386: Cycle of Grief with Dr. Debbie Bradley

When staring burnout straight in the face, we can sometimes feel the push to jump off of the ledge and leave medicine in the dust.  So why don’t we? In this episode, I chat with the amazing Dr. Debbie Bradley and her experience with walking away from medicine and her shift into something that brought her so much more gratification. However, the process of walking away from a practice that you’ve been invested in for years is never easy and it is one that I often equate to the cycle of grief. For many of us, medicine is something that we’ve devoted a large chunk of our lives to, and the idea of leaving that behind - although it is gratifying - comes with a bit of a mourning process as we say goodbye and transition to the next chapter. By allowing ourselves to experience the cycle of grief and feel all the feels that it brings with it, you open the door to finding your identity in who you actually are as opposed to what you’re doing. As doctors, we have to identify ourselves without our practice and that is very difficult after you have dedicated your time to becoming a doctor in your field of practice.  Drawing a boundary for what is best for you and your mental, physical, and emotional health can be hard especially when it’s with something that you’ve dedicated your career to. But, that’s OK. Hard doesn’t make it wrong, hard is part of life. You will always take your experiences and knowledge with you to the next chapter and it will never completely leave you. The other difficult component of being a physician and deciding to take a stand for yourself to move forward to the next best thing is often found in how it will impact others. Who will care for your patients? What about your team? These are difficult pills to swallow when you’re trying to do the best thing for you, but we have to continue to remind ourselves that we’ve served and will continue to serve others as doctors in whatever area we go to and it’s OK to leave people pleasing in the past and do what’s best for you.  When you can show up as the best version of yourself and embrace your identity after overcoming the cycle of grief and the fear of failure, that is when you can be empowered to do your best work and advance the field of medicine.  “I am the CEO of my life.” Dr. Debbie Bradley In this episode: [02:35] Welcome to the show, Dr. Debbie Bradley! [03:34] She shares her background and what lights her up. [04:34] She discusses her journey to where she is today. [10:14] Dr. Bradley believes that women physicians are not good at knowing their worth. [11:16] As long as she can remember she wanted to be a doctor, so thinking of doing something caused fear to surface. [14:18] “Hard doesn’t make it wrong, hard is just a part of life.” [15:53] Dr. Bradley talks about going through a period of anger when she resigned from clinical medicine. [18:38] She discusses the feelings that surfaced like guilt and shame. [21:13] She believes that in med school you are conditioned to be people pleasers. [24:34] She shares how she feels about leaving clinical medicine as her end date approaches. [28:42] She talks about what she thinks her next chapter will look like.
