    Health Management & Health Care Logistics

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field are live in the studio for a discussion on trends in population health management and how changes toward a consumer-centric health care model are affecting all stakeholders in the system.


    For the first segment on today's program, the hosts welcome Jack Curtis, founder and chief executive officer of Corporate Health Partners, to the show. A speaker at this June's FORUM & Expo, the chair of the Leadership Committee at HERO and an overall thought leader in health management, Jack discusses some of the latest trends in corporate wellness today. Jack and the hosts also cover the content of this June's FORUM & Expo general session, recent HERO research and how to engage the C-suite in corporate wellness efforts. 


    The second guest on this week's show is Robin Hooker, the director of healthcare marketing for UPS, a global leader in logistics. In this segment, Robin and the hosts discuss how the shift toward patient-centric care is affecting all participants in the health care system. Today, patients are choosing more direct-to-home deliveries; walk-in clinics, such as CVS Minute Clinic and MedPost Urgent Care, are on the rise; the middle class and aging populations in emerging markets are growing. These are impacting the health care supply chain immensely. With health care consumerism on the rise globally, logistics partners are required to innovate now more than ever to ensure a safe end-to-end shipping experience for biologics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more.

    Blind Descent with Brian Dickinson

    in Self Help

    Get ready for an inspiring story of faith and determination! Coach Cafe welcomes Brian Dickinson, author of Blind Descent: Surving Alone and Blind on Mount Everest.  Roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest – also known as “the death zone”--Brian's Sherpa guide was forced to turn back after falling ill.  Brian had to decide whether to push forward alone to the summit of Mt. Everest or turn back.


    After carefully weighing his options, Dickinson decided to continue up alone. Just four hours later, Dickinson solo summited the highest peak in the world.  As Brian prepared to descend back down the mountain's 29,035 feet, his vision suddenly became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds he was rendered almost completely blind.  


    Alone at the top of the world, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and most importantly, his faith. 


    Tune in to hear Brian's gripping story and how it has impacted his life, faith and what he has to share about empowerment and overcoming challenging situations in life.

    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    In this thirty minute episode Susan Lager co-hosts with Meredith Richardson, a mediator and conflict coach who knows all too well how people, especially when in conflict, can be totally blind to their own emotional blind spots.

    Health Savings Accounts and Self-funding

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will explore all of the latest trends in health savings accounts and self-funding with two special guests. The first guest will be Chad Wilkins, EVP and head of HSA Bank. The rise in health care costs, a shift to consumer-directed health plans and legislative changes are driving the future of health care and are expanding the role of health savings accounts. Additionally, recent studies have indicated a majority of Americans are not prepared to pay for essential expenses in retirement – including the cost of health care. In this segment, Chad Wilkins joins us to bring HSA Bank’s perspective on these industry trends and their impact on employers and consumers. We’ll also explore opportunities for industry providers to participate in emerging trends and maximize the value they provide to their constituents.


    For the second segment, starting at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Cheryl DeMars, president and CEO, The Alliance, to the program for a discussion on self-funding. The Alliance, a cooperative of employers that self-fund their health benefits, developed the QualityPath initiative to create a path to high quality care at a lower cost. The Alliance QualityPath program is one of few nationwide that measures the performance of a specific doctor at a specific hospital. Other innovative elements include bundled payments and paying close attention to the patient experience with 100 percent coverage of procedure costs, a 90-day warranty and shared decision-making.

    The Connection Between Health, Productivity and Performance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing the connection between health, productivity and performance in the workplace and what executives really think about employee health with two special guests from HERO, a national leader in the creation of employee health management.


    According to a new survey from HERO, more than 90 percent of surveyed business leaders said health has a very significant or significant influence on productivity and performance. HERO conducted the survey to understand business leaders’ perspectives about the connection between workforce health, productivity and performance. More than 500 business leaders from across the country, representing a variety of industries and company sizes completed the online survey between May and July 2014. The HERO business leader survey evaluated not only how business leaders differentiate between commonly used terms, such as productivity and performance, but to what degree they feel employee health influences corporate priorities like employee morale and engagement and overall corporate performance.


    At 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Jessica Grossmeier, vice president of research, HERO, and Nikki Hudsmith, vice president of operations, Performance pH, to the show for an in-depth look into all of the findings of this new study.
