Organ Donation and Recovery: What You Don’t Know May Surprise You

Although there are 155 million registered donors or nearly half of US adults, transplant waitlists remain long. While the US leads the world in deceased organ donation rates with steady growth and clinical innovations that have helped address the need, there is major room for improvement. Says Alex Glazier, CEO of New England Donor Services, with the right systemwide interventions, deceased donor kidney transplantation could jump by 61% by 2026. Dan Shellenbarger, Partner in Oliver Wyman's Health and Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Alex Glazier, CEO of New England Donor Services, and Kevin O'Connor, CEO of LifeCenter Northwest on the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast to talk about ways in which their organizations are driving improvements in organ recovery and transplantation and why older donors are a key demographic of focus.

Dr. Sachin Jain’s Most Effective Leadership Strategies

Unleashing latent innovation comes down to commonsense. But not just any commonsense. Radical commonsense. So says Sachin Jain, MD, MBA, President & Chief Executive Officer of SCAN Group and Health Plan, who joins the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast to talk about virtual care, health equity, what consumers want, and SCAN’s work to address homelessness as a healthcare problem. In this show, Sachin and host Tom Robinson, a Health and Life Sciences partner at Oliver Wyman, talk about how leaders can align their management styles with those of the people they work with. Sachin advises healthcare leaders to make their organizations unnecessary by improving the health of the communities they serve. The future of healthcare, he says, is already here. But it’s unevenly distributed.

Eleanor Health CMO on Addressing Racism Among Marginalized Communities

Addressing racism is a marathon, not a sprint. Healthcare leaders must be willing to take the first step to initiate heavy conversations that drive progress. Says Dr. Nzinga Harrison, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Eleanor Health, there is a direct correlation between someone experiencing weathering (a "fight or flight" physiological reaction) to them possibly developing health problems like high blood pressure, obesity, cardiovascular illness, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and more down the road. To learn more about weathering, health equity, and more, Elizabeth Southerlan, Principal in Oliver Wyman's Health and Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Dr. Harrison to talk about the psychological burden of racism as an independent risk factor for health.

Strategies for Leading an Academic Health System

Steering an academic medical center through a global health crisis demands remarkable humility, a relentless commitment to partnership, and true collaboration. However, what it perhaps doesn’t demand is a one-size-fits-all, traditional healthcare background. On that note, when Alan Kaplan, MD, first began his role as Chief Executive Officer at UW Health in Wisconsin five years ago, this was his first foray into academic healthcare – his prior academic experience limited to his experience as a student attending school. Alan, who’d been a senior healthcare executive for 25 years, learned he was actually the only candidate for the job without an academic background and was chosen for his know-how as a physician leader who understood how to run a business. To share his journey, Alan’s here on our podcast in a conversation hosted by Oliver Wyman partner, Deirdre Baggot, PhD, RN, to discuss physician leadership, provider-sponsored health plans, the importance of having a living strategic plan, what defines an effective partnership strategy, and why diversity of perspective and background among C-suite healthcare leaders serves as a competitive advantage.

Privia Health’s Predictions on Medicine’s Future

Navvis and SSM Health Partnership, Part 2

Navvis, a St. Louis-based population health company, and SSM Health, a nearly $8 billion health system in the Midwest, announced a holistic, data-driven, and consumer-focused partnership last year to design and operate a new value-based care delivery model. In this episode of the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast, Bryce Bach, Principal in Oliver Wyman's Health & Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Mike Farris, Navvis' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Carter Dredge, SSM Health's Chief Transformation Officer, at the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit in Chicago to learn more about their challenges and lessons so far. Check out part 1 here: https://health.oliverwyman.com/2019/11/podcast--navvis-and-ssm-health-s-partnership-.html More From This Episode: -- [Carter] "It's a misnomer for health systems to say, 'I'm just going to wait until 60 percent of my business is in risk until I change.' The reality is, if you're any system of any material size, no one is just going to give you that much risk right out of the gate. You've got to figure out how to identify problems for specific populations and fix them." -- [Mike] "You've got to do your diligence upfront. You've got to frame the risk. If you don't move, you've got to have a path ahead where you know where the pockets of value are that you're going to go after and can create a funding pool for re-investment. So innovation becomes self-sustaining." -- [Carter] "There is a latent opportunity in the front line when it comes to our experts. They know how to do a lot of our work way better than we do. We just need to give them a forum so they can see how [our vision] translates to patients. And if we can do that, look out. I literally see a day when we will be chasing to catch up with our front line."

Digital Therapeutics Predictions

How can we improve eye tracking for a more accurate assessment of someone's neurocognitive function? What is someone's likelihood of developing dementia? What's the best treatment for patients with substance abuse disorder or depression that effectively engages them in treating their conditions? The relatively new field of digital treatments and diagnostics offers valuable answers to critical medical questions such as these. It's a space where the healthcare industry is currently on the leading edge of change, moving from what was once mere theory and conjecture to rapid change and adoption as these types of technologies become more readily available. In this episode, three healthcare leaders — David Benshoof Klein, Executive Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer at Click Therapeutics, Laura Yecies, former Chief Executive Officer at SyncThink, and Trip Hofer, Chief Executive Officer at AbleTo — explore with host Fritz Heese, a Health & Life Sciences Partner at Oliver Wyman, at the 2019 Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit in Chicago why digital therapeutics are on the cusp of becoming mainstream and what specific problems digital treatments may solve within the next five years.

ChenMed’s President on Breaking Healthcare’s Rules

Illness (not wellness) drives the U.S. healthcare delivery system. But some are trying to flip the status quo upside down, building models designed to keep patients out – not in – hospitals and clinics. In this episode of the Oliver Wyman Health Podcast, Sam Glick, a partner in Oliver Wyman’s Health & Life Science practice, chats with Dr. Gaurov Dayal, ChenMed’s President of New Markets and Chief Growth Officer. ChenMed is a primary care group caring for a specific population subset – low-to-moderate income seniors from underserved areas who have both Medicare Advantage and chronic health problems. ChenMed opened three decades ago as a single physician practice in Florida, and by the end of this summer, ChenMed will have expanded to 60 clinics serving seniors in 8 states. ChenMed is now one of only a few primary provider groups and healthcare systems that’s expanded nationwide – and continues to expand – successfully across multiple markets. Sam and Gaurov discuss what makes ChenMed’s model unique, scalable, and one where patients say, “Wow, this is really cool.” For more information on our podcast, follow us on Twitter @OWHealthEditor, visit our online healthcare publication at health.oliverwyman.com, and see our full guest roster at https://www.oliverwyman.com/our-expertise/industries/health-life-sciences/oliver-wyman-health-podcasts.html.

United Kingdom Healthcare Innovation

Just like that old pair of bell bottoms buried in the back corner of your closet, the healthcare system in the United Kingdom is rigidly stuck in the 1960s. But a new push from the government to radically digitize a system in dire need of a modern makeover is promoting consumer centricity and is making prevention a key care delivery focus.
