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!

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.

Case Managers play a significant role in the utilization and quality of the American healthcare system.  In order to keep up with the rapid pace of change, they rely on organizations like the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) for education, resources and advocacy.  PopHealth Podcast had a chance to sit down with CMSA President, Kathy Fraser, at their most recent national conference in Austin to discuss some of the challenges and opportunities they face.  With topics including technology, end of life care and how the legalization of marijuana impacts case management, find out how case managers and CMSA are preparing for the future.
