Being a colleg student comes with it being responsible. You're an adult and your education is yours and yours alone. Being accountable and responsible for your education can be difficult to understand until you are in the throws of a situation with your roommate, professor, or classmate.
Tonight's episode shares tips for transitioning into a responsible college student. It goes beyond being safe on campus and hanging with trustworthy people to really knowing how to navigate the multitude of situations that occur both inside and outside the classroom. Again, the education you receive is yours and yours alone. You are in charge of more than you realize and you also have the ability to handle it all.
On the Wednesday July 24th 2013 broadcast at 12 noon Pacific/3PM Eastern my special guest is thought leader and advocate for patient centric healthcare Leonard Kish, aka @LeonardKish progenitor of the 'Patient Engagement is the Blockbuster Drug of Century' characterization by Dave Chase.
In a recent blog post Leonard equated the push into ACOs as the equivalent of the new, new thing i.e., the 'new OS' in moving the needle forward in our quest for the 'triple aim'.
Tying comments from Jam Hansen on the disruptive nature of ACOS, i.e., 'Value-based care is a transformational journey, not a backend contract driven program that you overlay onto your existing delivery system organization’s people, processes and technologies and expect different results” to a Microsoft value proposition analogy made by Tim O'reily Leonard notes:
'..the OS abstracts away the difficulty in managing all the devices and processes the computer runs so applications can focus on what the user wants to do. When Microsoft entered the market in the 80s that was their value proposition, simplicity for developing new applications by abstracting away the other processes. Health care, under value-based payment, will soon have the same opportunity.'
Leonard is a deep and insightful thinker in the space, our previous discussion of his take was in the form of 'dark matter in healthcare: patient goals'.

On the Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 broadcast at 11AM Pacific and 2PM Eastern, we'll examine headlines in the news and drill into some of the more interesting developments.
While we do in fact live in 'very' interesting times by anyone standards, clearly the 'elephant in the room' narrative of the Supreme Court's consideration of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, coupled with the frontal and oblique challenges to the efficacy of the 'accountable care organization' model and its prospects for success, can't be overstated.
My most recent post is titled 'They Shoot Horses Don't They?' a poignant movie from the 60s which draws from a dark metaphor of a depression era marathon dance contest and the limits of human endurance.
The connection is made in as much as some are suggesting that 'the system' is incapable of change, and the the revolution must come from without, i,e, via patients, since the special interests are too invested and addicted to the $2.7 trillion in the health care trough.
We're poised to resume our programming after a 'semi summer' break (actually no such thing for the self employed) and have many worthwhile interviews in store for you. On the Wednesday, August 29th broadcast at 12:30PM Pacific/3:30PM Eastern, we'll review headlines in the news and preview an upcoming 'deep dive' into the Pioneer Class of ACOs operating in California. These include many familiar faces, though branded ACO from the Group Health Association of America (GHAA) days (GHAA was predecessor organization to AHIP), when mainstream medicine met the HMO movement. We'll see if there are lessons to be gleaned from their experience and current courage to step forward and model accountable care absent the gatekeeper 'hammer'.

Are men responsible for impregnating women and if so does that mean women are powerless and have no voice or choice in deciding to become a mother?
Even if one were to say, yes it is irresponsible of men not to think and create children they cannot and will not support, how successful has society been in holding men accountable? Is child support enough?
Equally responsible is that the same as saying equally accountable?
Have you noticed, once you are feeling happy and can see you are making the right choices just for you, how new things seem to pop up that take your breath away about how you are moving forward?
