  • US Medical care illustrated by flag and stethoscope

    There is no issue more important to the future of America than it’s long-term fiscal sustainability. And the long-term fiscal sustainability of the United States has been placed in jeopardy primarily by the structure and expense of America’s healthcare system. According to the Congressional Budget Office, nearly the entirety of the growth in federal spending as a share of the economy—excluding interest—can be explained by government health programs: Medicare, Medicaid, the Medicaid-related Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Affordable Care Act. In addition, one of the principal economic challenges faced by middle- and lower-income Americans is the expense and instability of American health insurance.

  • Happy group of adult friends having fun

     3 Reasons Why Staying Social Matters to Your Thinking

    How many friends do you have? Do you rarely see family, go out for the evening or join your community for an event?

    You may not realize it, but your social life may just be bad for your brain.

    In the immortal words of Bette Midler, “you’ve got to have friends.” Little did the Divine Miss M know that in addition to our souls, she was hitting a high note on brain health as well.

    A recent AARP survey found that adults 40 and over with a higher number of social connections report better brain health.

  • American Health Care Act

    After a seven year wait to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, the GOP’s much-anticipated replacement collectively called the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was unveiled this week. Amidst a revolt from the left and right, doctors, hospitals and insurers, the plan cleared its first hurdle at 4.30 am on Thursday- approval by the House Ways and Means Committee and The House Energy and Commerce Committee after 18 and 27 of hours of debate respectively. It now has to be approved by a full House and the Senate…the former likely (although not guaranteed) and the latter impossible without bipartisan support.

  • fixing the drug pricing problem

    The one thing that all Americans agree on – politicians included- is that prescription drug prices are on an unsustainable trajectory. Americans pay, by far, the highest prices for prescription drugs in the entire world. On average, Americans pay $1,100 per year for their drugs — $300 more than Germans or Canadians do. In addition, total US drug spending has more than doubled in the past 15 years, from $121.2 billion in 2000 up to nearly $374 billion in 2014, squeezing both payers and insurers alike……all of this while the largest pharmaceutical companies are cumulatively earning $80-$90 billion per year in profits at higher margins than other industries.

  • The 2016 election is over, and a top priority for the new administration and Congress is healthcare. The candidates discussed little substance about healthcare during the campaigns, despite the fact it is approaching 20% of our economy and touches every American. You could say the problems in healthcare have been caused by action by one party and inaction by another party. You could say Republicans want this and Democrats want that, but I don’t think labeling should be the focus. The problem is Congress (both parties) are tied to special interest groups. Insurers, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and the plaintiff’s bar, along with Congress created our unaffordable healthcare system.

  • Telehealth is here to stay, but it will go through an evolution like all new technology shifts. A new study evaluated performance of teledermatology. The results were mixed. There were incorrect diagnoses and missed diagnoses. Treatment recommendations were not always consistent with guidelines. Prescriptions frequently lacked disclosure about possible adverse effects.  The study was limited because there are not yet large numbers of cases to evaluate. A significant limitation to the study was the authors were unable to assess whether clinicians seeing these patients in traditional in-person encounters would have performed any better.

    On balance, telehealth is a good thing. It has the potential to expand access to more patients, and the medical literature is filled with examples of telehealth systems providing quality care.

  • Squeezing in a little exercise improves concentration and actually makes your meeting more productive. Waking up the mind and body creates a better atmosphere for listening to the innovative thoughts and ideas being delivered and better prepares us for putting those ideas into action when we return to the workplace.

    Invite a person from your Leadership Team to deliver a “3-5 minute” exercise break. Exercise helps increase energy levels, as well as concentration levels.  Break up the presentations where sitting for long periods can put the mind, not to mention other parts of the body, to sleep.  The break also creates a different type of exposure for your attendees to interact with leadership!

  • Re-Posted from John Patrick’s Blog on Accelerating Cancer Treatment…I remember being at a technology conference in 1999 when teenagers Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning demonstrated a digital music service called Napster. It was the beginning of a revolution, and it made a lot of sense to me. The rock group Metallica sued Napster in 2000 and the momentum of music sharing slowed – temporarily. I never saw the problem as theft. I saw it as an industry unwilling to give up the status quo and give consumers a way to purchase music. It took Steve Jobs, the iPod, and iTunes to ignite major growth in digital music.
