    How to Get the Health Care you Deserve - with Lawrence Lazarus, MD

    in Health

    Getting the best medical care possible for yourself and those you love can be challenging, especially when you realize that medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy, and medical and hospital errors account for more yearly deaths than car accidents. 


    When his elderly aunt developed depression and Alzheimer's disease, Dr. Lawrence Lazarus saw firsthand how America's fragmented healthcare system could endanger his patients' lives. He recognized the importance of being assertive, proactive and of having a trusted healthcare advocate and a dedicated physician to coordinate and assure the best care possible.


    In this interview Dr. Lazarus will share his lifetime of personal and professional experience with patients.  His book Getting the Healthcare You Deserve in America's Broken Healthcare System offers practical advice about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The book also explains how to reduce healthcare costs and overcome psychological barriers to recognizing early signs of illness. We will also talk about how to find and keep the best physician.


    Through working with patients, he has seen the importance of understanding how America's complicated and sometimes adversarial health system works and the need for patients and their families to take more control and responsibility for their healthcare.

    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.
