Coal mining culture and the opioid crisis

"For me, my own personal stories of opioid patients come to mind, including one who keyed my car when I stopped prescribing his opioid after an acute injury. I think of some local opioid overdose deaths in my community. I would love to hear what other doctors and clinicians have to say about these issues, like the 'not responsible' verdict and the Sackler family running away liability-free and still worth billions of dollars. Does anybody feel like the opioid companies were pushy in the ‘90s and 2000s? Were they in the right? Is the California ruling in line with the common good? Are our prescribing practices under scrutiny? What runs through our heads right now, doctors? I would love to know." Rebecca Thaxton is a family physician.

The Financial Outlook of Healthcare in 2022 with Rob DeMichiei

January 21, 2022: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-demichiei/ (Rob DeMichiei), Board Director, Strategic Advisor and Former CFO is back with Bill to break down J.P. Morgan 2022. Healthcare is becoming as much about the for-profits, the IPO's and the private equity investors as it is the non-profits. These worlds are really converging. Providers are realizing that they can't survive just being a fee for service, acute care hub. They need to expand their offerings and acquire assets for the whole continuum of care. Baby boomers are aging which means 10,000 new consumers of Medicare every day. Labor inflation is going to be around for a while. Bon Secours Mercy talked about diversifying. Ascension has 55 different EMRs running in 140 different hospitals. Advent spent $750 million on their Epic install. And the critical battlefield of the future? Owning and unifying your digital front door. Key Points: 00:00:00 - Intro 00:12:50 - How are you changing your care delivery to deal with the nursing shortage? 00:16:40 - Being heavy in labor assets and infrastructure is a really bad formula for the traditional healthcare provider 00:25:00 - The stimulus dollars would have been better used on the struggling health systems because they're still struggling

EiT Health Germany Series 1/12: Changing The Paradigm in the Fight Against Antimicrobial Resistance (Alexander Belcredi)

Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem related to the overuse of antibiotics and the lack of development of new ones. Many solutions are entering the market to address the issue: software solutions to identify, track and predict antibiotic-resistant infections and help prescribers with more accurate prescribing of antibiotics.  Antibiotics are not appealing to the pharmaceutical industry from a business perspective. The reason is that new antibiotics are intended for a fraction of all patients. So if you develop a drug that’s meant to be used as the last resort for clinicians after they've tried all other options, clinicians would more often than not try to avoid using these new antibiotics if not absolutely necessary.  Among the problems with antibiotics is the fact that many are very broad-spectrum, used to kill several different bacteria. So in this episode, we’re going to change the paradigm of antimicrobial treatments: what if you could target harmful bacteria more precisely? You’ll hear from Alexander Belcredi, co-founder and Co-CEO of the biotech startup PhagoMed, which was acquired by BioNTech and renamed BioNTech R&D Austria in October 2021. Phagomed has been researching the field of antimicrobials and also developed an innovative treatment for bacterial vaginosis. In today’s discussion, you’ll hear about the challenges with the development of antimicrobial therapies, and also learn more about Phagomed’s journey before the acquisition.   This episode is supported by EiT Health Germany, which is one of eight Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) currently funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). EiT Health Germany connects 150 renowned partners from industry, research and education from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The unique network helps initiate outstanding innovations in the health sector.

Mayo Clinic Q&A: Why getting infected with COVID-19 is still a bad idea

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded in January 2022 Guest: Gregory A. Poland, M.D. (@drgregpoland) Host: Halena M. Gazelka, M.D. (@hmgazelkamd) With the highly transmissible omicron variant spread across the U.S., it may seem inevitable that most people will get infected with COVID-19. But Mayo Clinic experts explain why it is important to continue to be vigilant and take measures to avoid COVID-19 infection.  "One of the many negatives about saying, 'Well, I'll just go ahead and get infected and get it over with' is you can spread the virus to highly vulnerable people," says Dr. Gregory Poland, head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. "Parents, grandparents, people too young to be immunized, and people whose immune systems might not be working well are all at risk of more severe disease. While your case may be mild, theirs may not."  Dr. Poland cautions that the sheer number of infections is stressing the health care system, and treatments for omicron are more limited than they were for the delta variant. "The role of testing and of getting boosted is critical to our response to this, and remember, even though you might have mild disease, every time this virus infects somebody, it is the opportunity for further mutation." says Dr. Poland.  Vaccination, boosting and masking are all necessary to prevent the spread of omicron. "Your best chance of protecting yourself is to be fully vaccinated, wear a proper mask properly when in public, and to avoid crowded indoor settings," says Dr. Poland. On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland discusses the omicron surge and answers listener questions.

Ambiguous Medical Plans – How to Figure Out a System Even When it Seems Impossible with Parvathy Raman Krishnan

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 118 Ambiguous Medical Plans - How to Figure Out a System Even When it Seems Impossible with Parvathy Raman Krishnan Parvathy Krishnan joins me to discuss being an administrator for your kids and the uncertainty that stems from not having a care plan in place, like when you have an ultra-rare disease kid like she does. She has endured more than most on her rare parenting journey, yet she perseveres every day with courage to advocate and make a difference. To know her is to love her. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Tell me about your rare disease parenting journey. About 8 years ago, my son began experiencing bloody stool and he had his first colonoscopy at 6 years old. He had polyps in his colon, so he continued having colonoscopies to see if he improved. Genetic testing didn't reveal any answers. At 8 years old, he had his first major surgery, a proctocolectomy to remove his large intestine and rectum and he got an ostomy bag. Through additional genetic testing, it was revealed that he had a rare condition called Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD). Because it's such a rare disease, there's no treatment or standard of care. My daughter was born around the time my son was having his first colonoscopy done. When she was 6 months old, we were told she had a genetic condition called Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS). Through her lifetime, she was identified to have three additional rare diseases and passed away at 4 years old.   What does it feel like when a doctor says they don't have an answer or don't know what to do? It feels honest. When they did genetic testing, we were told our son was the only patient with CMMRD in North Carolina. Then we went to Boston where we were told he was the only patient in the country. We went to Toronto where they run the largest research study on the condition and were told he was the only patient in the world. We realized it would be really difficult to put the puzzle pieces together with no other patients to fill the gaps. The condition is ultra rare and it's been difficult. Is there hope in not knowing? For us, knowledge is power. We didn't know the affected genes were in our family, but because of our children, five adults in our family now know they're carriers of the defective gene. It's powerful for them to have the information when planning for a family in the future. There’s hope in knowing because we can be proactive in our son’s treatment and screening. What resources have you discovered to be helpful to care of your family? It's okay to say no when you need to and ask questions before you say yes. My biggest support has been social media and connecting with other advocates that give me hope. We're all rare, but we're not that different. Our struggles and wins remain the same and in the end, we're all connected as patients or parents. Following others, despite their diagnosis or journey, helps me to keep things in perspective. Global Genes and Courageous Parents Network are both great resources and provide comfort as we move through grief.

Simplifying the No Surprise Billing Act

Hello and happy 2022!  The Medical Management Podcast is truly happy to be back with much more information to help you level up your practice. In this two-part special we feature our friend Scott Tucker. In this first episode, we tackle a controversial topic: the No Surprises Billing Act of 2022. Even though this act applies in its majority to hospital settings, there is a part that applies for outpatient medical clinics and practices. Good faith estimates and disclaimers must be shown to patients. Hospitals and practices are not involved when a patient disputes a bill, that must be done directly with the government. Scott breaks down the No Surprises Billing Act step by step for you to understand and know how to go forward from now on.
