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!

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.
