On the Wednesday, October 16th 2013 at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern my special guest is Dr. Pat Salber. We turn the tables on Pat today and rather than put her in the moderator's seat, she the subject of today's discussion.
Pat's entry into social media and the broader digital domain was launched via the blog 'the doctor weighs in' (TDWI). A clincally vs. health policy focused place to discuss initially weight management issues, trends and development it quickly grew in both visibility and reach via a broader lens on medicine and the healthcare world at large albeit principally through the eyes of physicians.
Pat took somewhat of a sabbatical from her curation and writing duties at TDWI circa the 2011 timeframe to focus on the soon to emerge theater of crowd funding startups in the healthcare space via the platform HealtTech Hatch.
Today we get to learn more about this woman, her interests, vision and passion for emerging digitally enabled technologies and the people who write the code, invent the business model and chart the pathways to market and their collective ability to make a difference for our ailing healthcare ecosystem.
On the Wednesday, June 26th 2013 broadcast at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern our special guests are co-authors of the recently published book: 'Cracking Health Costs' Tom Emerick and Al Davis.
For information or to order the book see: Cracking Health Costs.
The published abstract indicates:
Cracking Health Costs reveals the best ways for companies and small businesses to fight back, right now, against rising health care costs. This book proposes multiple, practical steps that you can take to control costs and increase the effectiveness of the health benefit. The book is all about rolling back health care costs to save companies and employees money. Working hand-in-hand with their employees, businesses need to ensure that, whenever feasible, employees with the most expensive diagnoses get optimal treatment at hospitals not practicing “volume-driven” medicine for higher profits. Less than 10% of employees incur 80% of costs. About 20% of patients have been completely misdiagnosed, while many others are simply the victims of surgeons who are either practicing bad medicine or overtreating for profit. For example, some companies, such as Walmart and Lowe’s, are turning to the “Centers of Excellence” approach author Tom Emerick helped to pioneer while running benefits for Walmart. Join us for an informative chat with Tom and Al.
