I am continuing my audio blog, moving away from my experiences with my journey with my mother to patient and healthcare stories. It is my hope that these stories will be informative and instructive. When you hear them, you may think, is she making this up. No, they are real.
Healthcare Whisperer welcomes Catherine Grace to the show. She is a writer, editor, and breast cancer survivor. She is here to discuss her journey throught the maze of cancer from diagnosis to treatment to remission. Her story will give us insight to the impact on one's life, emotions and relationships. It is a story of strength, courage, love and compassion. Catherine's experience will make you laugh and cry but most of all it will fill you with awe at her determination to win the battle.
Join our discussion as we analyze the problems surrounding our healthcare system in the United States. We will discuss topics such as the rising cost in medical care, the lack of physician available, cost of prescription drugs, the major difference in a one payor system and universal care. Also we will discuss billing methods and copays, deductibles and co-insurance. We hope to educate the public on healthcare procedures and laws and hopefully this will lead us towards a better healthcare system.

There was so much controversy about passing “Obama-care”, officially known as The Affordable Care Act, but after all the dust has settled, there is no improvement in the health disparities between people of color in America and white Americans. Healthcare policies were written by those who were ill-equipped to address the issues that poor un-insured people face. Disparities occur in the quality of care received (Care by Provider) even when income, health insurance and access to care are taken into account. Patients from racial and ethnic minorities often fare far worse than their white counterparts on a range of health indicators: life expectancy, infant mortality, prevalence of chronic diseases and insurance coverage, among others. We also know our health is influenced by more than what happens in a health care setting. Our health is influenced by the conditions in which we live, where we work, where our children play (Care Needed due to Circumstances). Those social determinants of health play a significant role in contributing to health disparities.
A year ago I attend a Pri-Med conference in New York City which is a primary care (internal medicine) conference. There were all of the Northeast medical institutions represented with professors paid to teach the latest and greatest American Medical Association decision about “ standard of care” in the land. There were holographic presentations from prestigious university medical school. The case study was of a 62 year old black American woman with diabetes, obesity, hypertension and early signs of cardiac and renal pathology. The panel's general attitude was that the patient “did not want to change her health status”.
Healthcare Whisperer welcomes Margery Parker and Carolyn Parker owners of Cahoon Care Associates, a home healthcare agency. The company's main objective is to provide quality home health aides and caregivers to families. The focus and mission is to provide the best match possible between aide and client.
They started the business after experiencing the down side of home aides with a family member. They thought, "we can do this better." That was the start of the journey.
Tune in to find out how they got started, what the pitfalls were and wonderful stories that will make you laugh and cry.
In 2011, I elected to return to my ealier interest in literature, but this time from a social perspective. Like many of my fellow physicians, I was concerned that the passage of ObamaCare had paved the path for the formation of a healthcare cartel. This cartel formed by the marriage of big government and big healthcare has an agenda largely concealed from our country's population. That agenda will dramatically increase the cost of healthcare, reduce the access to and the quality of healthcare, and bring about the end of medicine as a profession. "Sustainable Healthcare Reform: Harnessing the Power of Capitalism to Fund Our Social Needs", my first book, exposes this hidden agenda. Beyond this, however, my book offers an innovative alternative to ObamaCare which will restore power to consumers, healthcare professionals and employers. The book is being used to launch a movement--an American Healthcare Revolution.
