S11: #106: What Individuals and Organizations Can Do To Survive And Thrive In Times Of Crisis

With the combination of the Covid crisis and the increased awareness of mental health in the month of May (which is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth) I wanted to dig deeper into mental health and find out what we can do as individuals and organizations to resource ourselves and those around us.  Guest: Dr. William Kassler, Deputy Health Officer and Lead Population Health Officer at IBM Watson Health.   Dr. Kassler has held a variety of roles at Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Kassler has received numerous awards from the United States Public Health Service, including the Surgeon General’s Meritorious Service Award, and the Bi-State Primary Care Association President’s Award for “unyielding dedication to community-based access to care for the poor and disadvantaged.” We certainly appreciate his dedication to serving people from across our communities. He’s still a practicing internist and continues to hold office hours in his role at IBM. In this episode, we discuss the role of self-care in developing resilience to conquer fear.

S11: #105: Digital Health for Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health

In 2017, approximately 19.7 million people aged 12 or older had a substance use disorder (SUD) related to their use of alcohol or illicit drugs in the past year, and an estimated 20.7 million people aged 12 or older needed substance use treatment (1). Sky News reports that calls have doubled to a helpline designed to support children whose parents are battling alcoholism (2).  When traveling is not an option, what support and services are available to people who are battling Substance Use Disorder? In addition to the treatment and support needed to support and sustain their recovery, they are also confined in their homes and potentially dealing in close proximity to relationship, financial or work related problems. Our guest has first hand knowledge of what it’s like to battle addiction, and, fortunately she’s turned her attention on how to improve the situation for people on their own journeys to long-term recovery. Joining me in the health podcast studio is Daniela Tudor, who is recovering from substance use disorder. Daniela is the CEO of WeConnect Health Management. Their mission is to reverse the high relapse rate of those in their first year of recovery and over come the challenges of transitioning into long-term recovery. Daniela started the company with her co-founder Murphy Jensen, the former tennis pro and winner of the 1993 French Open Doubles title. We discuss the traditional tools, instructions and systems available for people in recovery, and how technology facilitates better solutions, experiences and outcomes, Daniela also shares how she and Murphy teamed up to start the company - it involves a 'Bucket List' competition and a trip to Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island.   Join WEconnect Recovery Live Every third Friday at 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern Links and Resources: Connect with Daniela Tudor: Twitter | LinkedIn | TEDxBellevueWomen Connect with WeConnect Health Recovery: Website | Twitter | LinkedIn (1) https://www.samhsa.gov/data/sites/default/files/cbhsq-reports/NSDUHFFR2017/NSDUHFFR2017.pdf (2) https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-calls-to-charity-double-as-children-struggle-in-lockdown-with-alcoholic-parents-11981408 Connect on Digital Health Today: Browse Episodes | Twitter | Linkedin | Facebook | Instagram Connect on Health Podcast Network: Browse Shows | Linkedin | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram Digital Health Today is made possible by the support of our sponsors.

S11: #104: Building a Company Culture with Virtual Reality and Remote Teams

Organizations are adapting to the new ways of engaging with their employees, clients and suppliers, and platforms like Zoom are experiencing rapid growth as collaboration tools. But successfully growing a business requires more than simply having the right technology in place. Ultimately, it's always about the people. Questions abound such as - how do you build a company culture when people can't gather in coffee rooms, common areas or ping pong tables? Are teleconferencing solutions like Zoom really the best option for people to experience human connection and interaction? And if the predictions are correct and this pandemic really will introduce an entirely new way for businesses to operate over the long term, how do you recruit and grow teams and create ways of building personal relationships that go beyond a voice and a video screen? To give some insights on how to do those things I turned to Dr Justin Barad, the co-founder and CEO of Osso VR. Justin shares an update on the growth of his company, and, importantly, he explains how Osso VR has created a company culture and a sense of teamwork, even though people rarely share the same physical space.   Justin and I prepared a PDF of some of the tips we discuss on this program, as well as a few links to some resources you may find useful. Be sure to grab those in the link below.

Coffee Talk: Training Professionals to Lead Healthcare’s Evolution with Biomedical Informatics

For this special Coffee Talk I invited two leaders from one of our sponsors to share some of their insights and expertise on one of the most important areas of healthcare right now, Biomedical Informatics. Organizing, analyzing, and utilizing vast amounts of information for translational research to connect discovery with clinical care is one of the biggest challenges facing the current generation of data scientists, which is particularly being highlighted during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The University of Chicago Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics is an amazing program that goes deep in informatics methodology. It also teaches things like effective communication skills and how to manage complex Biomedical Informatics projects, as well as entrepreneurial and innovation skills across the various courses. With me in our virtual studio is Dr. Sam Volchenboum and Dr. Cheng-Kai Kao to tell us more about the ways they’re training and preparing the leaders we need for the healthcare of today and tomorrow. They explain more about the program itself, the kinds of professionals who enroll, and how they go about preparing students for the roles they will have in healthcare. Be sure to check out the full transcript on our website.

S11: #102: Helping People with Respiratory Illnesses Breathe Easier During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Joining me in our virtual studio is David Van Sickle, co-founder and CEO of Propeller Health. Propeller is a leading digital health company dedicated to the management of chronic respiratory disease. David founded Propeller Health in 2010 but he initially started his work in 2006 while at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.   David was one of the very early pioneers who spotted the ability to apply technology to medications to capture data that gives insights into both personal and population health. He and the team at propeller health worked tirelessly over the years to develop the technology, business models, regulatory approvals and evidence to drive adoption of their product.   Now, 14 years on, and this early digital health company is seeing a groundswell of interest as their products are used by some of the people who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. I wanted to know how their strong foundation and company mission supported their growth and evolution, and how, with their successful track record, they are supporting their users and communities to help them stay well and healthy. I was also interested to see if they’ve observed any changes in behavior by their users in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
