The common hospital workaround that inspired two nurse entrepreneurs

On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Joey Ferry and Taofiki Gafar-Schaner, the nurse entrepreneurs behind SafeSeizure pads-- self-inflating, single patient use seizure pads that are tailored to fit hospital beds and cribs. They talk to Dan about how their experience as bedside nurses using a combination of bed linens, tape and mesh underwear to create a safety pad for seizure patients inspired their invention. They point to this as just one of the many workarounds that the nursing profession is full of and explain how those are the areas that are ripe for innovation in the field.  Joey and Taofiki also share the advice that they’ve given to other aspiring nurse entrepreneurs, as well as their thoughts on how hospital leaders can encourage innovation from within their own facilities.  You can find out more about SafeSeizures and Joey and Taofiki’s story at www.safeseizure.com and www.frontierhealthresources.com.

How Elemeno Health drew inspiration from Salesforce to deliver better patient care

On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Dr. Arup Roy-Burman, a pediatric physician and Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF. Arup is also the founder and CEO of Elemeno Health, a mobile platform that helps healthcare organizations engage frontline staff to deliver consistent best practice, and bring quality, safety, and efficiency to the point of care.  Arup and Dan discuss how EHRs, facility guidelines and clinical innovations have led to a massive increase in complexity across the healthcare industry.

Drawing inspiration from Salesforce, he sought to use technology as an enabler and founded Elemeno to deliver just in time micro learnings for frontline clinicians.

Empowering consumers to collect, own and share their health data

On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Ardy Arianpour, CEO and co-founder of Seqster, a healthcare platform that empowers consumers to aggregate their medical records, genetic data, and fitness data from wearables and other personal health devices into one place.  Ardy grew up in San Diego, the “mecca of genomics,” as the son of a breast cancer survivor, two experiences that shaped his early interest in the field. He was one of the very first people to have his genome mapped and recognized early on that there was a huge opportunity to connect data from disparate sources like wearables, Ancestry.com, 23andme and EHRs. Inspired by Mint.com, he set out to create an individualized health record that would enable people to improve their health by collecting, owning and sharing their data.  He shares with Dan how Seqster combines data interoperability and patient engagement to facilitate meaningful conversations between caregivers and patients and ultimately, drive better health outcomes.  The full transcript for this episode can be found here: www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/ardy-arianpour

Nurse Burnout: Russ Richmond, Founder & CEO of Laudio

On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Laudio Founder and CEO Russ Richmond. Russ is a physician who left the bedside early on to pursue a career in entrepreneurship. He explains to Dan why he was drawn into solving issues at the system level, but still thinks of himself as a caregiver. He also shares the story of a serious skiing accident that landed him in the hospital for three months and gave him a completely different lens into what it’s like to be a clinician. This experience ultimately inspired him to start Laudio, a platform that uses artificial intelligence to predict and prevent clinician burnout. Russ shares that the number one cause of burnout is feeling unappreciated, and how meaningful employee interactions between clinicians and managers can have a profound impact on addressing this. He and Dan discuss the important role that managers play in preventing burnout and staff turnover, the difference between transformative and transactional leadership, and why it’s not one big thing, but hundreds of small things that can make the difference to keeping staff engaged and preventing errors in patient care.
