For many healthcare professionals, Dr. Mary Naylor and her transformative Transitional Care Model (fondly referred to as the “Naylor Model”), have become synonymous with care transitions and readmission prevention.  Adapted from a care transitions program for low birth weight infants, Dr. Naylor created one of the most influential models for caring for high-risk older adults.  With amazing results in hundreds of healthcare organizations across the country, it has become one of the standards for managing a high-risk patient population.  Now chair of the Care Culture and Decision-Making Collaborative through the National Academy of Medicine, Dr. Naylor continues to shape the future of healthcare through policy initiatives and research, including her recent 6-year term on MedPAC.

We love Social Workers on this show and are consistently amazed by their capacity to care for those without champions.  It isn’t very often, however, that we get to see the heartbreaking challenges and heart-warming success stories that these Social Workers face on a day-to-day basis from their point-of-view.  Scott Ferguson is not only the Director of Social Work at Long Beach Memorial Hospital, but also the President of the Society for Social Work Leadership in Health Care, a national trade organization for the industry.  With these unique perspectives, Scott takes us on a journey through the real world of Social Work, how it’s evolved over the years, it’s role in care transitions, the seemingly impossible miracles they conjure on a day-to-day basis and so much more.

With the CBO Scoring of the Senate healthcare bill due this week, and a vote scheduled before the July 4th break, confusion and frustration regarding the future of healthcare in America and here in California is at an all-time high.  With this is mind, we present you with our timely and extremely topical interview with Secretary of the CA Department of Health & Human Services, Diana Dooley.  Secretary Dooley oversees a myriad of health services in CA, but two in particular seem to be under attack- Covered California and Medi-Cal.  However, unlike the doomsday predictions of many of the talking heads you’ll find on TV, Secretary Dooley (who describes herself as a ‘passionate moderate’) has remained calm in the face of extreme diversity and still believes that healthcare can be fixed.  Join us as Secretary Dooley walks us through where we are, and where we go from here.

When Dr. David Feinberg joined UCLA Health System many years ago as a psychiatrist, he wasn’t expecting to one day lead the organization.  However, after becoming CEO during a period of cratering patient satisfaction scores, Dr. Feinberg helped engineer one of the most incredible and well-documented cultural transformations in healthcare, establishing UCLA as one of the top 3-5 hospitals in the nation in the process.  While he’d quickly rebut that he was only a piece of the transformation, his ongoing routine of daily patient visits and emphasis on their satisfaction nevertheless inspired a book and a TEDTalk documenting UCLA’s success.  Now President and CEO of Geisinger Health in Pennsylvania, Dr. Feinberg oversees innovative programs like refunds for unhappy patients and genetic testing for entire populations, continuing an opportunistic vision that has served so many for good.

When HomeHero broke onto the home care scene in 2013, their revolutionary approach and enormous venture capital backing took the healthcare world by storm.  However, less than four years later in an article titled “There’s No Magic in Venture-Backed Home Care”, Kyle announced that HomeHero would be leaving home care for good.  In this fascinating (if we do say so ourselves) conversation with PopHealth Podcast, Kyle talks about HomeHero’s meteoric rise and how it all ended almost as quickly as it began.  We also discuss his thoughts on venture-backed home care and what is next for his team as they work to reimagine another segment of the healthcare market.  *contains some brief, strong language*

Harry Nelson and his law firm, Nelson Hardiman, have established themselves as some of the leading healthcare attorneys in the United States.  Following the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Harry and his team have worked nonstop to help their healthcare clients navigate the new realities of healthcare and the implications it involved.  With the future of our nation’s healthcare system thrown into disarray after the election of Donald Trump, Harry and his team became frustrated with the misinformation and hyper-partisan rhetoric that followed.  Given his deep knowledge of the healthcare system, he and fellow attorney Rob Fuller authored the best-selling book “From Obamacare to Trumpcare: Why YOU should care” to dispel myths being propagated by both sides of the aisle and provide some clarity of what we can expect moving forward.  Together we explore the ideas in the book, from Medicare and Medicaid, to what individuals and organizations should prepare for, regardless of what comes out of Washington D.C.

The Visiting Nurse Associations of America, better known as VNAA, has long been one of the pillars of advocacy for care in the home.  They’ve felt, however, that the industry overall remains too fragmented to work towards the common goals we all share.  This led them to create an entirely new entity, the recently unveiled elevatingHOME, through which they intend to “re-envision healthcare delivery to place home at the center of care.”  Gavin and Zac recently attended the kick-off ceremony during the Home Based Care conference in San Diego and spoke with the leadership of both organizations, and the thought leaders who are working to make this vision a reality.  Explore this enormous undertaking and visions of what the future can hold with guests including Tracey Moorhead, President & CEO of VNAA AND elevatingHOME, Bob Fazzi, Founding Board Member of elevatingHOME, and Erik Wexler, Chief Executive of Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California.

As more and more health care services are pushed towards the home setting, ever-changing employment legislation, licensure, and fractured minimum wage ordinances are creating a legal minefield for home-based employers.  Leading home care employment attorney, Bob King, joins Gavin and Zac to discuss why many home care providers are opting to leave the industry entirely and his surprising take on why litigation against home-based care is at an all-time high.  As home-based care becomes a cornerstone of healthcare, where can the balance be found with care providers, their employers, state/federal government, and the seniors who need the care the most.

Medicare Access and CHIP Re-Authorization Act (MACRA) is a mouthful and doesn’t necessarily jump off the page as a must-read, but in reality, it is about to change the way doctors can deliver (and bill for) better patient-centered care.  For example, did you know that a physician and a specialist cannot both bill for a visit on the same patient on the same day, or that a doctor couldn’t bill Medicare for time spent making phone calls to patients?  Gavin & Zac are joined by Dr. Ashby Wolff, Chief Medical Officer for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Region-9, to talk about innovations like MACRA, Accountable Health Communities and Bundled Payment Programs that are shifting the way we deliver and receive healthcare.

How much face time do you or your loved ones actually get with your Primary Care Physician during doctor appointments…maybe 5-10 minutes?  Can you see your doctor whenever you need to, or do you need to book weeks in advance?  If you feel that the current system and access to your doctor is woefully insufficient, you’re not alone.  In fact, many primary care physicians would agree, and this is exact problem that Halcyon Health and Direct Primary Care are attempting to solve.  Gavin and Zac are joined by Dr. Emilie Scott and Dr. James Gaor, co-founders of Halcyon Health, to discuss their revolutionary approach to primary care where patient membership fees allow the doctors to take on a realistic case load and focus on quality rather than volume, and ultimately deliver better care.  Check us out on iTunes or online, and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any of our other exciting upcoming episodes!
