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!

Senator Ed Hernandez holds a distinct place in history as Chair of the Senate Health Committee during the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  As a physician himself, he has seen first-hand the tragic results of living life without health insurance, and the amazing personal success stories that have followed the monumental change.  Join Zac and PopHealth Podcast for this insightful and wide-ranging interview with the Senator as we explore why he thinks repeal without a replacement would “send us back to the stone ages” and why he thinks people should be “very, very concerned” with their future access to care.  We also discuss potential GOP replacements, share real-life success stories of the ACA, and explore Senator Hernandez’s ‘Transparency in Drug Pricing’ bill SB-17.

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.
