PopHealth Podcast

Healthcare is a multi-trillion dollar industry in the United States, and yet many people are completely unaware of the brilliant people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to improve access, lower costs and improve patient outcomes. Welcome to PopHealth Podcast, the show by healthcare professionals that explores the challenges facing the American Healthcare system through the perspectives of the innovative minds looking to solve them and move the industry into the future. We invite thought-leaders and influencers from throughout the continuum of care to discuss population health; from elected officials tasked with setting public policy, to clinicians who treat patients in every conceivable condition and social situation, to ground-breaking business leaders who are creating ways to connect and streamline the delivery of care to an ever-growing and diverse nation. Our hosts, Gavin Ward & Zac Morgan, bring a combined 20 years of heath care and home care experience which allows them to facilitate thoughtful and meaningful discussion on topics including population health, care transitions, readmission prevention, etc. Our goal is to provide listeners with a wealth of knowledge on the issues which affect millions of Americans every day, and a glimpse inside the world’s largest healthcare system. We believe that, together and through healthy conversation, we can change and improve the future of 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!
