If you've made it this far, and have considered becoming our patron here on Patreon, just know that I'm extremely grateful! But how, exactly, does this help the show? Well, The Humanist Report is free to watch and listen to, but there are costs associated with maintaining it (money is needed for web domain fees, SoundCloud archive fees, equipment replacement, technical upgrades, etc.). Also, your Patreon funds allow me to dedicate more time to the show by supplementing my income and allowing me to do this on a more full-time basis. When the views go down, so too does our revenue, and this Patreon account ensures that I can still pay the bills and keep dedicating as much time as possible to the show.

Embracing healthcare’s digital transformation 2.0

Article | February 24, 2020

Technology is only as useful as the value it helps us deliver. For us to get to the next phase of this evolution, technology must fit into a patient-centric care model. When I shifted my role from a full-time practicing physician to a healthcare administrator 20 years ago, there were no national standards on quality measurements, let alone for performance-based payment or value-based payment models. Today, value-based initiatives are shifting care delivery from compensating volume to compensating value and redefining financial incentives toward better patient outcomes. In this model, providers must think about the entire patient experience across all care settings and between episodic visits. On top of this, consumer behavior is changing the way patients choose and receive care. Patients are increasingly embracing convenient options for their healthcare that match their lifestyle, but still want the peace of mind that comes with support from a consistent primary care provider or care team.

6 Coronavirus (COVID-19) Considerations for Telehealth Providers

Article | March 13, 2020

As the novel coronavirus outbreak continues, the federal government and commercial health insurers have taken significant steps to increase Americans’ access to treatment and testing. In the past week, the federal government and private insurers have issued a number of guidance documents expanding coverage and payment requirements in an effort to minimize the spread of the virus. As with any changes in coverage and reimbursement, healthcare providers offering telehealth services should carefully review these changes and take steps to ensure that all regulatory and coverage requirements are met prior to submitting claims for reimbursement.

Will regulation limit the impact in health care?

Article | March 2, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) introduces some important concerns around data ownership, safety and security, and with so much at stake, meaningful regulation should be expected. The pharmaceutical, clinical treatment and medical device industries provide a precedent for how to protect data rights, privacy and security and drive innovation in an AI-empowered health care system. We should expect the continued growth of AI applications for health care as more uses and benefits of the technology surface. I’ve given more than 100 presentations on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) this past year. There’s no doubt these technologies are hot topics in health care that usher in great hope for the advancement of our industry. While they have the potential to transform patient care, quality and outcomes, there are also concerns about the negative impact this technology could have on human interaction, as well as the burden they could place on clinicians and health systems.
