Building Healthy Communities with Bechara Choucair

4/5/2022
Health care is poised at a pivotal moment. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned so many of our previous assumptions and practices upside down. And it has revealed to us, with painful clarity, our shortcomings. But this time has also opened up a rare chance to recast the future. So as we emerge from the pandemic, we don’t have to go back to where we were. In fact, we shouldn’t. We have a chance now not just to tinker around the edges, to make small improvements, but to reimagine healthcare and...

The Science of Influence, with Andy Slavitt and Katy Milkman

3/29/2022
Changing people’s behavior is arguably the holy grail of medicine. To keep patients healthy, we ask them to do all sorts of things—come to their appointments, take their medications, get their vaccines. And beyond the clinic, we want them to exercise, eat healthily, get enough sleep, limit alcohol, avoid smoking, and lately wear masks and take COVID-19 tests. If we could collectively succeed at this kind of health-supporting behavior, we could solve a whole lot of the sickness and death that...

COVID-19, Patient Data, and Personalized Health with Ashwini Zenooz and Paul Meyer

3/22/2022
We are awash in data. In health care, we (and our doctors) are constantly generating medical data from our health apps, connected devices, electronic health records, labs, images and treatment plans. Yet, very little of it is used or interpreted in a way that produces meaningful insights… or helps us predict or prevent a problem before it starts. In this episode of Ahead in Health, host Jodie Lesh talks to Dr. Ashwini Zenooz and Paul Meyer, two people who are revolutionizing how patient...

Caring for the Caregivers with Kate Ryder

3/15/2022
Our caregivers need their own support systems. Most caregivers are women, and over a third of women have skipped important doctor’s visits since the pandemic began. Part of that is overwhelm. But another part of it speaks to the fact that health care is not plugged into women’s lives in ways that make it easier for them to access specific services at key moments or phases of life. In this episode of Ahead Health, host Jodie Lesh talks to Kate Ryder, founder and CEO of Maven Clinic. Maven’s...

Digital Equity in the Shadow of Digital Health with john a. powell and Abner Mason

3/8/2022
Virtual health care boomed in the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s undoubtedly a huge part of the future of medicine. But is that good news for everyone? Underserved communities are at risk of being left even further behind as the most affordable, timely, convenient care increasingly happens online. Digital care actually has the potential to do the opposite—to improve access, personalize care, and reduce historic health inequities—but only if we design it right, and do so right now. In this...

Mental Health at Your Fingertips? With Megan Jones Bell, Headspace

4/1/2021
For decades health reformers have been pushing American medicine to adopt more proactive models of care -- led in large part by Kaiser Permanente and its deep history in preventive medicine. Yet focusing healthcare conversations on maintaining health rather than managing sickness appears to be a constant challenge. Today consumer technologies are driving people to monitor, track and manage more and more elements of their lives, in pursuit of total health and wellbeing -- from mental to...
