    Health Management & Health Care Logistics

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field are live in the studio for a discussion on trends in population health management and how changes toward a consumer-centric health care model are affecting all stakeholders in the system.


    For the first segment on today's program, the hosts welcome Jack Curtis, founder and chief executive officer of Corporate Health Partners, to the show. A speaker at this June's FORUM & Expo, the chair of the Leadership Committee at HERO and an overall thought leader in health management, Jack discusses some of the latest trends in corporate wellness today. Jack and the hosts also cover the content of this June's FORUM & Expo general session, recent HERO research and how to engage the C-suite in corporate wellness efforts. 


    The second guest on this week's show is Robin Hooker, the director of healthcare marketing for UPS, a global leader in logistics. In this segment, Robin and the hosts discuss how the shift toward patient-centric care is affecting all participants in the health care system. Today, patients are choosing more direct-to-home deliveries; walk-in clinics, such as CVS Minute Clinic and MedPost Urgent Care, are on the rise; the middle class and aging populations in emerging markets are growing. These are impacting the health care supply chain immensely. With health care consumerism on the rise globally, logistics partners are required to innovate now more than ever to ensure a safe end-to-end shipping experience for biologics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more.

    Health Care Payments, Life Insurance and Health Incentives

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, the hosts welcome two special guests to the program for a discussion on health care payments, health engagement, life insurance, health incentives and more.


    The first guest on the program will be Vineet Gulati, chief executive officer of HealthExpense. Similar to the shift from pension plans to individual retirement accounts years ago, employers are switching from defined benefit to a defined contribution that their employees control. Therefore, the employee-consumer today has to make more health insurance and health care purchasing decisions. This shift has been rapid, and consumers need to learn very quickly how to use vehicles like HSAs, FSAs and HRAs to cope with this expense-shift. In this interview, Vineet and the hosts will discuss what problems this shift is causing across the health care ecosystem and the innovations that are emerging to deal with these changes.


    For the second segment on the show, the hosts will talk with Tal Gilbert, senior vice president of marketing and innovation for The Vitality Group. Tal and the hosts will be discussing an innovative new solution that brings together life insurance and wellness incentives. John Hancock Insurance recently launched a new approach to life insurance in the U.S. that rewards people for healthy living. Developed through an exclusive, first-ever life insurance partnership with The Vitality Group, the new solution integrates life insurance with a comprehensive healthy living program.

    Health Analytics: Find Data Beyond the Hospital Doors

    in Technology

    Everyone is talking about using analytics to improve healthcare, collecting data on blood pressure, insulin levels, heart rate and other indicators. However, health plan CareSource not only is analyzing that traditional medical data but is using analytics to draw a more complete picture of a patient and the life factors -- lifestyle, home life, and work -- that shape their health. The goal is to prevent recurrence of medical issues and readmission to the hospital.


    Bob Gladden, vice president for CareSource's Center for Analytics, and his team are taking creative approaches to healthcare analytics in an effort to keep their clients healthier in the long run. Gladden joins All Analytics Radio to discuss how organizations can use analytics to search for healthcare solutions that range beyond what we have grown to view as standard health data.


    In this show you will learn:



    About the impact that unnecessary recurrence and readmission have on patients, providers, insurers, and the public
    How providers and insurers can utilize data analytics to have a positive impact on patient lives while delivering efficiencies throughout the healthcare system
    What types of life factors have a significant impact on patient health and how data can identify possible solutions
    About the unexpected role that healthcare analytics can have in shaping public policy, particularly for those patients most in need

    Reclaim Your Health: Self-Care for Parents of Children with Special Needs

    in Self Help

    Join us as Rose-Anne Partridge shares about the importance and the how-tos of self-care for parents of children with special needs.


    As a mother of a 15-year-old with special needs, Rose-Anne understood that she didn't have all the answers. 


    One of the biggest problems facing families who have children with special needs is self-care. Who is taking care of the caregiver? We tend to put all our energy and efforts into helping our children, and in the long run, we find ourselves exhausted and burned out. 


    Rose-Anne believes those answers need to come from the individual and from the families and our communities. And she believes that as families who have children with special needs, we need to come together to help each other reach those goals and create those innovative ideas.


    Let’s come together and continue to have HOPE!


    About The Hosts:
