    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.

    Five Things Business Owners Can Do To Reduce Healthcare Costs

    in Business

    Maneuvering through the rapidly increasing healthcare requirements and exorbitant costs is one of the biggest challenges facing business owners today.


    In my search for new and innovative businesses to interview on Now & Next Radio, I met a business owner who is offering a solution for providing healthcare benefits to employees. Tom Quigley has over 24 years experience in the insurance industry and is an advocate for business owners and saving employers money. He, along with his wife Christy and business attorney, Ed Lyon, developed ClaimLinx. They have developed solutions that have saved small businesses millions of dollars on their health insurance. Their book, How To Beat Obamacare, is very clever. 


     


     Tom's story is fascinating and the ClaimLinx solution is keeping small business strong on America.


     


     Please join us as we explore Tom's journey.

    WHAT IS FETICIDE AND WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE

    in Current Events

    WHAT IS FETICIDE, WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE, AND DID SOMEONE SET THE CLOCK BACK?


    Did you hear about the Indiana woman who had a miscarriage and was sent to jail for 40 years for “feticide?”  Or the woman, also in Indiana, who attempted to commit suicide while she was pregnant and spent a year in jail for harming the baby? These aren’t isolated cases, and they aren’t all happening in Indiana.  One study actually found hundreds of cases where women were arrested for doing something while pregnant that some official found harmful to their pregnancies. 


    So what does this mean for women around the country? And what about health care in general? Has health care reform and resultant hospital mergers have an impact on women, on pregnancies, on you?


    Join us Saturday as we talk with Rachel Berkson, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington Executive Director. Rachel has been Associate Director of Washington Community Action Network. the Executive Director of the SEIU Washington State Council, where her primary focus was coordinating the union’s joint political and legislative programs, and from 2000 - 2006 was a lead organizer with the Working Families Party, a labor and community-based grassroots political party in New York State. Join us as we hash over what’s happening with pregnant women and politics, women’s health care, and where we are headed when it comes to women’s health in this country.


    Call-in with your comments to (646) 378-0430.

    For all of the problems with our medical care system, most people have some form of coverage and can see a physician or access a hospital and a pharmacy. Yes, many are under-served or have had their access denied entirely. But, most people can still count on calling their doctor, scheduling an appointment, and be seen when they need it.


    Consider for a moment, however, that our nation faced a major emergency- perhaps an EMP, an economic crash, or a deadly epidemic. We have seen how little it can take during a crisis before looting starts. In a major disaster, however, some of the first places to be looted will be hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies.
