    Using Time To Guide EMS Patient Care

    in Education

    Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.


    While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?


    As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.


    I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.


    So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?


    Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?


    Join us for this episode as we discuss this and other popular EMS topics. Call in Toll Free or come into the chat room to share your opinion.

    S06:08 A Conversation with Dr. Katriny Ikbal

    in Lifestyle

    Dr. Katriny Ikbal is a  Board Certified Family Physician with an extreme passion for patient care. After spending several years working in various urgent care clinics, she became disillusioned because insurance-based healthcare severely limits patient/doctor interactions.


    She knew there had to be a better way.  The Direct Primary Care model that has been growing quickly throughout the U.S. was the answer she had been looking for.  In February of 2015, she opened her practice, Direct Med, in Austin, Texas.

    Big Picture Health Care Trends & A Legislative Update

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field talk with special guests from copatient, Brighton Health Plan Solutions and TASC.


    The first guest is Tom Torre, CEO at copatient, a health care expense management company. In this segment, Tom joins the hosts to discuss the big health care trends that copatient is seeing in the market today and why copatient exists. As an industry veteran with past executive roles at FIS Global and Alegeus Technologies, Tom will also touch upon copatient’s medical bill review and negotiation service and out-of-network claims management service and what benefit these services have to health plans, employers, brokers and TPAs. 


    The second guest is Simeon Schindelman, CEO of Brighton Health Plan Solutions (parent company of MagnaCare). The traditional health care system fails to align the interests of the key players, doesn’t put consumer care first and also underserves other key stakeholders, such as care providers, plan sponsors, families of patients and brokers/agents. Educating plan sponsors and plan participants about options and tradeoffs, while developing trusting relationships so they value advice being offered, will improve their ability to access and use the health care system most appropriately. In this interview, Simeon and the hosts talk about thoughtful approaches to lowering health care costs, improving quality and increasing the satisfaction of all participants in the health care system.


    The final guest on this week's program is Jason Westphal, legislative analyst at TASC. As head of TASC’s Governmental Affairs team, a member of ECFC and former chief of staff in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Jason will provide listeners with insights on legislative issues pertaining to compliance for the small employer, document storage, sharing and tracking, the Employer Shared Responsibility Mandate and ERISA.
