    2016 Outlook for Health Care & Benefits

    in Business

    The new season of HealthCare Consumerism Radio gets underway this morning as hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from ECFC and Acclaris. Topics on today's show will include the “Cadillac” tax, account-based plans and more, with an underlying focus on an industry outlook for the year ahead.


    The first guest is Bill Sweetnam, the legislative and technical director for ECFC, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and expanding employee benefit programs on a tax-advantaged basis. In this interview, Bill will discuss being a part of the ECFC for the past six months and the significant strides the organization is poised to make in advancing health care consumerism in 2016. A 30-year industry veteran, Bill will also discuss the work underway, the repercussions of the “Cadillac” tax and the ongoing initiative of the ECFC to repeal it.


    The second guest on the show is Seth Ravine, the chief revenue officer for Acclaris, a Willis Towers Watson company. With a new year now underway, some things still don’t change. The two core components that are needed to drive effective health care initiatives will remain the same: long-term engagement and an integrated experience. However, there will be changes in the year ahead to make those components a reality. In this interview, Seth will discuss his five industry predictions for a successful new year.

    USVI Health Care Through the Years Includes Dr. Knud Hansen's Contribution

    in Culture

    The Department of Health of today functions as both the state regulatory agency and the territorial public health agency for the U.S. Virgin Islands. 


    As set forth by the Virgin Islands Code, Titles 3 and 19, the Department of Health (DOH) has direct responsibility for conducting programs of preventive medicine, including special programs in Maternal and Child Health, Family Planning, Environmental Sanitation, Mental Health, and Drug and Substance Abuse Prevention. 


    DOH also is responsible for health promotion and protection, regulation of health care providers and facilities, and policy development and planning, as well as maintaining the vital statistics for the population.


    DOH provides Emergency Medical Services, issues birth and death certificates, performs environmental health services, and conducts health research and surveys. The Department is also responsible for regulating and licensing health care providers and facilities, and assumes primary responsibility for the health of the community in the event of a disaster.


    An Obstetrician, Surgeon and General Practitioner, Dr. Knud Knud-Hansen was born in Denmark. He received his early education in Copenhagen and upon completion he entered the University to pursue a medical career. Dr. Hansen in his autobiography, From Denmark to the Virgin Islands, describes these years as "long years of happy misery". To support himself through medical school he taught Zoology in a Miss West's Higher Girls School and doubled as a news critic for a newspaper syndicate.

    When slaves became ill or their sense of justice was stifled, they often sought help in the spiritual world and went to the “Obeah man”. With rituals and magical objects, he could restore health and a sense of justice.

    GENDER AND THE HEALTH CARE BUSINESS

    in Current Events

    With the healthcare business being what it is today, it seems like all the health care providers are parts of big organizations and most of those organizations are headed up by men. So if there is a difference between men and women in the way patients are treated and care is dispensed, what does it mean if most of the direct providers are female and the head honchos are male?


    Lots of questions, some answers.


    Andrea Piatt, PhD., ABPP, is the principal and founder of Commonwealth Psychology Associates in Massachusetts. She is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in assessment of adults with neurological injury or disease, medical conditions, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and or emotional problems that impact academic or work life. And she is interested in helping women providers be owners and not just worker bees when it comes to helping patients.

    HEALTH MEDIA NOW-DR. KAJIKI-HOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD THYROID HEALTH!

    in Health

    Please join us this Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. PST and 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger.  Our special guest is Dr Gil Kajiki.  He is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.  
    Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.
    With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when his wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr.
    As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.
    After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.  Dr. Kajiki has an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.  You asked for it and we deliver!
