    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.

    Oral Health & Technology-Based Health Management

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from DentaQuest and Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions to the program to talk oral health, dental insurance, digital health, workplace wellness and more.


    The first guest this week will be Steven Pollock, CEO, DentaQuest, the second largest dental benefits administrator in the United States. Even with increased access to medical insurance coverage thanks to the ACA, 83 million Americans face barriers to dental care. And over 50 million Americans live in areas with insufficient dental care. In this segment, Steven will share DentaQuest's commitment and plans to reduce oral health disparities. Oral health is a key component of overall health, and dental disease is almost completely preventable.


    For the second segment, the hosts will talk with Rich Bedrosian, Ph.D., Director, Behavioral Health, and Bobbi Coluni, Head of Strategic Product Management, Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions. Technology-based health management is not a trend, but rather, a critical tool in the efforts to improve population health. In this segment, Bobbi, Rich and the hosts will discuss how to define success when engaging consumers through connected health, some best practices in the connected health market and much more.

    Technology, Voluntary Benefits & Private Exchanges

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz are live in the studio with special guests from Limelight Health – a Silicon Valley startup – and Liberty Mutual – a Fortune 100 company – for conversations on technology, voluntary benefits, private exchanges and much more.


    The first guest is Michael Lujan, co-founder of Limelight Health, a Silicon Valley-based technology company aimed to help simplify health insurance. In this interview, Michael and the hosts will discuss how technology is changing benefits and HR for the better. Technology is disrupting many industries, impacting how we get around (Uber) and where we stay (Airbnb). On the other hand, the health insurance and the human resource industries have been dependent on paper forms and fax machines for far too long. Both industries are going through radical changes, and Silicon Valley is investing billions to help modernize the process and help us become more informed, engaged and connected consumers.


    The second guest on this week's show will be Ryan Thomson, director of private exchanges at Liberty Mutual Insurance, the number one employer-sponsored group voluntary auto and home program in the country. As voluntary benefits continue to play an increasingly important role in employers benefit programs and strategies, employers are turning to a number of “non-traditional” benefit offerings like pet insurance, legal services and auto & home programs in an effort to appeal to and engage diverse workforces. In this segment, Ryan and the hosts will discuss how employers are integrating discounted auto & home programs into their benefits strategy as well as some of the benefits these programs can provide to both employers and employees.

    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.
