    Audio Blog#18 Stories From The Healthcare Front

    in Health

    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.

    Social Justice : Healthcare Disparities and “Obamacare”

    in Current Events

    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”.

    Take Back your Healthcare - with Rocky Bilhartz MD

    in Health

    Medicine should be about the diagnosing, treating, and preventing of disease. But, in America, we’ve gotten all that mixed up. The patient-physician relationship has been evaporated and has been invaded by third-parties fueling flames that are entirely unhelpful to actual patient care.   Healthcare has become one of the most polarizing topics in the United States. Fewer and fewer people are finding value in America’s medical system, as growing distrust continues to mount.


    Join us as we speak with Rocky Bilhartz, MD author of  Finding Truth in Transparency: Our Broken Healthcare System and How We Can Heal It  - a riveting uncensored look into the healthcare problems our country is facing - this book gives a peek behind the “Iron Curtain” of medicine and you will be shocked by what you find there.  Dr. Bilhartz conveys an unprecedented understanding of why physicians are getting out of medicine, why your medical bills are too high, and why your insurance plan is too confusing. 


    A practicing physician in the field interventional cardiology and cardiovascular disease, Dr. Bilhartz is a graduate of Rice University and received a joint Medical Doctor (M.D.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree with specialization in Health Organizational Management from Texas Tech University Health Science Center.


    As a doctor, author, and speaker, his mission is to help you take back your healthcare.

    The Future of Today’s Healthcare Delivery System

    in Technology

    Dr. Jay Sanders is President and CEO of The Global Telemedicine Group and an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also the founding board member of the American Telemedicine Association where he serves as President Emeritus.


    In this podcast interview, Dr. Sanders shares his thoughts about the deficiencies in today’s healthcare delivery systems and the solutions that can overcome them in the future. Dr. Sanders believes that the evolution of technology, including telemedicine and the use of artificial intelligence to aid doctors will be the easy part of the transition. The real challenge, according to Dr. Sanders will be doing more to enable a behavioral change that places the patient front and center in their own care and treatment.

    Healthcare Changes for 2016 And A Solution

    in Health

    We are talking about the new economic realities of healthcare in 2016 – and two recent pieces in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.


    To discuss all this is my guest.  Dale Bellis is the executive director and co-founder of Liberty Health Share.  Dale, welcome back.


    For the record, I am a member of Liberty Health Share and my company works with them on videos and other marketing activities.  Dale, for folks who don’t know, Liberty Health Share is medical cost sharing which is what?


    How does Liberty Health Share and medical cost sharing keep costs so low?


    Let’s get into these two recent stories in the media.  The first one is from The New York Times.  It explains a recent survey by the Kaiser Foundation that showed -- even people who are insured are facing crushing debt.  20% of the people under 65 -- with health insurance -- had trouble paying their medical bills.  They have high deductibles to meet first before insurance kicks in – sometimes upwards of 10-thousand dollars.  Then they have co-pays or caps on how much insurance can pay.


    We’ve talked about this happening for more than a year now.  Why is this happening?


    What’s also fascinating in that study is only 53% -- with no insurance – were having problems.  I say only because you would think 80 or 90% would think that way.  Why is that and what does that tell you?


    This cost trend is one reason Liberty Health Share has seen a 6-fold growth in 2015.  Let’s get into the second recent article – this one from the Wall Street Journal.


    Folks, if you are interested call 888-616-9443.
