  • Dying with Dignity: Starting the Conversation to Close the Healthcare Gap

    in Health

    What constitutes a ‘good death’? How and where are people dying? Are the needs of the dying being met? How can we advocate for a “good death”? Considering we are all going to die and lose loved ones at some point in time in our journey through life, these are all important questions to explore. Recently there has been an increased emphasis on the importance of addressing healthcare disparities in end of life care. This increased emphasis is mostly as a result of a bountiful of research on how dying patients are invisible in many acute healthcare settings in the United States and are victims of healthcare disparities. That is, certain groups receive lower quality of care than others. Worse than being a dying patient, is being a dying patient who is perceived by medical personnel as belonging to a different race, culture or ethnicity. These biases that lead to disparate treatment are often present at a subconscious level.


    Dr. Jacqueline N. Font-Guzmán is associate professor at the Werner Institute at Creighton University. She is a certified mediator and arbitrator by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court.  She is a Fulbright Scholar who has actively participated in the field of conflict studies through national and international conferences and workshops, and has conducted a wide variety of trainings and seminars in the field. 


    Dr. Font-Guzmán conducts qualitative research with a focus on the fields of healthcare disparities, law, and conflict engagement. Specifically, how people construct meaning at critical points in their lives about their identity (e.g., professional and community), reflective learning/practice, and end of life to explore the manners in which meaning-making leads them to productively engage with conflict. She also explores how marginalized individuals create alternate stories and counter-narratives to address institutional injustices.

    Consumer-Driven Health Accounts & Wearables in Wellness

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Doug Field, Ron Bachman and Brent Macy are live in the studio with special guests from Flex and Healthiest Employers for conversations on consumer-driven health accounts (HSAs, HRAs and FSAs) and the role of wearable devices in workplace wellness programs.


    The first guest on the show will be David Lindgren, Senior Manager, Compliance & Public Affairs, Flexible Benefit Service Corporation (Flex). With the ACA weighing on employers’ every health care decision, it is no surprise that they are doing whatever they can to stabilize costs for themselves, while better engaging their employees into the cost-sharing process. The integration of consumer-driven health accounts has rapidly emerged at the workplace as a key strategy to combat rising health care costs. As an advocate in this marketplace, Flex pondered how many employers are offering these plans, how offer rates differ by employer size and, in light of the ACA, what the future holds for their growth or demise. In this segment, David and the hosts will discuss the key findings from a recent survey that collected responses from more than 500 employers of all sizes throughout the U.S.


    The second guest on this week's program will be Rod Reasen, Chief Executive Officer of Healthiest Employers. The wearable movement is here. In fact, according to a new survey from Healthiest Employers, 54 percent of employers are looking to purchase wearables in the next twelve months. Yet, only seven percent have a plan to use the data to improve health. In this interview, Rod and the hosts will outline what employers want in an a wearable, the reasons to purchase and how to “connect the dots” between activity and outcomes.
