    Is Hospital-Physician Alignment Sustainable?

    in Health

    On the Wednesday May 11th 2011 broadcast, at 11AM Pacific/2PM Eastern, consultant, blogger, noted speaker, and soon to be published author, Vince Kuraitis is my special commentator on the always 'tender' subject of physician/hospital alignment. Given the current scramble to position traditionally independent, siloed or discontinuous provider relationships into a coordinated tapestry of 'accountable care', if not a 'per se' ACO, the question arises: Is the marriage of two often troubled allies possible, or might there be a more suitably aligned partner(s)?
    In a recent blog post at e-Care Management Blog several noted thought leaders (including former guest commentator William DeMarco) chime in on the subject, see: 'Is Hospital-Physician Integration Sustainable?'

    Payors, Alogorithms, & other Dubious Deals with the 'MedicalQuack' aka Barbara Duck

    in Health

    On the Tuesday, March 16th broadcast, at 6PM Pacific, and 9PM Eastern, I chat with Barbara Duck, aka the 'MedicalQuack', see: http://ducknetweb.blogspot.com/. We'll talk about a range of topics in the health care 'transformation' space, and kick around the idea of 'who is really to blame' for the near imploding health care 'house of cards' we find ourselves in? Do health insurers really deserve the lion's share of the blame? After all, there is plenty to go around. What about niche players like PBMs, or for profit hospital management companies, and their massive 'non profit' (aka tax exempt) breatheren, have they really delivered on their (quality, cost, access, value) promises other than those made to Wall Street or via their ostensible community benefit claims? Join us for a lively and potentially controversial exchange.

    Health Reform and You: WTF is going on?

    in Health

    OK, I've used the term the 'white waters' of health reform in my tweets, and twitter hashtag of #healthreform to anticipate and account for the current meltdown of change momentum for the cause of health system, aka health insurance, reform. Wow, the legislative deadlines came and went; and more wow, the cause is out their dying on a vine while the well funded naysayers prompted by poll reading, focused group obsessed, yet very smart hired hands orchestrate a 'shock and awe' series of carpet bombing on a plan that has yet to take form. Obamacare is a myth; only perscribed as a set of 8 principles yet completely subordinate to strategically cast soundbytes and video clips justaposted to 'expose' his real intent of a government run single payer system. What a farce! Today, I will review some of the more precious pieces gaining traction in the minds of Americans, as well as the more sanguine and less frothy voices out there as well.

    Health Reform Hysteria- Now What?

    in Health

    We'll discuss the current buzz amidst the airways, both traditional and new media as it relates the the climax of healthreform possibilities; fully anticipating the President's attempt to retrieve much of the oxygen lost to the congressional process, and their unrealistic timeline to re-wire our dysfuncational health care system while the political ideologues and hunkered in special interests do their thing.

    A 'New Age' Tuskegee Medical Crime?

    in Health

    Harvard and MIT trained practicing nephrologist, and CEO/founder of OTC listed GenoMed, Inc., (http://genomed.com), David Moskowitz, MD, often finds himself at odds with mainstream medicine, including powerful St Louis hospital systems defending the 'sick care' recurring revenue streams associated with chronic renal dialysis treatment. Dr. Moskowitz claims he has the medical innovation, and documented research outcomes to prove his claim that kidney disease can be prevented, and even reversed - thus eliminating the patient's dependency on dialysis. Is Moskowitz a clinical 'disruptor' and medical innovator who threatens the mainstream, or an eccentric, perhaps unrealistic, practitioner having drunk the 'kool-aide' at perpetual odds with prevailing convention and medical standards? You be the judge.

    Health Reform: Making Sense Of The Choices

    in Health

    As we continue our journey down the health reform path, we may be witnessing the equivalent of a "healthreform 2.0" moment. It's been a while since the last dance circa 1993 when "HillaryCare" preoccupied the hearts and minds of many. This sound byte mantra was popularized by the Harry and Louise campaign, and reduced a complex debate into the equivalent of a "cock fight". Yet, the subject is now back front and center in the national debate. So where do we stand? and what are the realistic legislative options before the Congress? On this program David Harlow, of the Harlow Group (http://harlowgroup.net), will join me for in this opening conversation in health reform. Please join us, and please add to what is likely to be a lively exchange. The Twitter hashtag will be #nhr (net health reform).
