Our nation’s healthcare system faces many challenges today that didn’t exist a few months ago. To dive into the ins and outs of healthcare – and the smart solutions we need to drive innovation and solve complex problems – I’ve started bringing together the most innovative minds from both inside and outside the industry in my new podcast, InsideOut.
The podcast brings together executives, providers, academics, researchers, entrepreneurs and more to explore the country’s rapidly shifting healthcare landscape. We cover a broad range of issues, from data and technology, public health and COVID-19 to clinical quality, value-based care and much more.
Our audience will hear about the cross-sector efforts to reimagine how a 21st-century healthcare system should operate.
In addition, they’ll hear how leaders and communities are taking bold steps to manage the COVID-19 crisis. Here are some of the key insights that experts are sharing on the podcast.
On redefining the rules of manufacturing:
“If we’re truly going to compete with the Chinese for manufacturing – and not just the Chinese, but the rest of the world – we’ve got to recognize that it’s going to be a technology race. It’s not going to be the 1995 or 2005 assembly line, and whoever has the cheapest labor. Because we’ll never win that.”
- Mark Cuban, entrepreneur, investor and Dallas Mavericks owner
Read about my reflections on my conversation with Mark Cuban and American ingenuity during COVID-19.
On addressing imbalances surfaced by COVID-19:
“What strikes me about this epidemic is its unintended consequences revealing the profound disparities that exist in our country. . . COVID-19’s lasting legacy for this country will be revealing the incredible imbalances that we have in terms of how public health and then, frankly, how healthcare is delivered to the broader population of this country.”
- Sachin Jain, President and CEO of Scan Health, and Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Stanford University
On the data-driven response to COVID-19:
“One key part of reopening successfully is the ability to detect outbreaks as they occur and then take steps to contain them, and that's where surveillance really comes in. You know, I think Americans are going to get the wrong idea when they hear the term ‘surveillance.’ It's really about being able to detect and contain the outbreak associated with the virus, while avoiding having to take big, broad, intensive steps on physical distancing and isolation.”
- Dr. Mark McClellan, former FDA and CMS Chief, and Director of the Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy
On how nurses can improve clinical outcomes:
“One of the things that is so important to the nursing community as a whole is purpose. It's important to really focus on the outcome so I can keep going during the day. In any job that a nurse has, it's that connection with the patient — and that relationship and that understanding of what's important to them — that gives you the energy to see what is possible.”
- Kathy Driscoll, Chief Nursing Officer, Humana
As you can tell, I am inspired by the innovators who are thinking bigger, bolder and more creatively about how to strengthen our healthcare system – from the frontline clinicians to the leaders making investments toward resiliency.
I also draw inspiration from the life stories and experiences of my guests, and their bold efforts to address some of the biggest challenges across healthcare.
I hope you’ll join me in these 15- to 30-minute conversations. Listeners will hear from some amazing leaders who are providing a fresh look at today’s most challenging healthcare problems and how we fix them.
