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!

As Vice President of Care Management, Tory Starr oversees both inpatient and outpatient care management teams for one-half of all of Sutter Health System.  This presents both enormous challenges and opportunities to improve care transitions in both the acute and ambulatory care settings.  As CMS and the Federal Government continue to try to innovate and focus on costs and readmission penalties, more and more responsibility for the efficiency, throughput, and outcomes falls onto Tory and forces major innovation system-wide.  Find out why he finds that sometimes the best new solutions are not new at all, and about the ground-breaking ways he is working to solve the clinical- and more importantly, social- challenges using new providers like home care and residential facilities on this episode of PopHealth Podcast!
