    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”.

    Price/Quality Transparency & Member Engagement

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field talk with special guests from HealthEngine and Colibrium.


    The first guest is Jonathan Weiss, the founder and CEO of HealthEngine. Today, we’ll talk about how to turn the myth of health care consumerism into reality. Consumers need effective tools in order to be savvy health care consumers, and they need to work in partnership with their physicians since the patient/doctor relationship is sacred. HealthEngine offers such a solution. The HealthEngine Marketplace Platform – available to consumers, employers, physicians and facilities at no charge – gives consumers access to quality and pricing information for 1.2 million health care providers in the U.S. In this interview, Jonathan and the hosts discuss how to empower physicians with tools to enable consumers to access and choose high-quality care at a lower cost.


    The second guest is Mark Poling, co-founder and CEO of Colibrium, a company that delivers integrated software solutions designed specifically for the health insurance industry. Historically health insurers built relationships with their brokers, depending on them to build relationships with their members. Once a member, the health insurer managed the member’s claims. Many health insurers only interact with five to 10 percent of their members beyond required regulatory communications, while potentially having the most powerful information about a person, their health and well-being. Health insurers have the data and knowledge to build deep and trusted relationships with their members, but struggle with where and how to start. In this segment, Mark and the hosts discuss the importance of knowing your consumers in today’s consumer-driven environment.
