Health Insights from BioIQ and Healthcare Industry Leaders
A webinar series exploring the critical healthcare issues facing America and business leaders in 2021.
BioIQ’s Sean Slovenski and Justin Bellante will be talking with healthcare industry experts to discuss how to protect workforces and member communities in the coming year and beyond. They will discuss everything from national health policy to COVID-19 testing and vaccination strategy and deployment.
Part 6: How the COVID Pandemic Drove Healthcare Innovation
Propelled the rapid expansion of telehealth, safer and faster vaccines, and at-home screenings.
The coronavirus pandemic produced some groundbreaking innovations that will have a tremendous impact on healthcare. Telehealth, vaccine development, and at-home screenings are just a few of the innovative developments during this pandemic.
Justin Bellante BioIQ co-founder, president, and COO will explore these and other questions with Dr. Marion Couch. Dr. Couch is the Senior Vice President of Healthcare Services and the Chief Medical Officer at Cambia Health Solutions. She brings more than 30 years of experience as a clinician, educator, and health care industry executive to Cambia. Prior to this, she was the Senior Medical Advisor in the Office of Administrator at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In this cross-cutting role in this federal agency, she worked on policy creation, quality, value-based care transformation, as well as developing payment models. Dr. Couch is a head and neck surgeon with microvascular training. Her residency training was at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and she earned her Master of Business Administration from Duke University Fuqua Business School with a concentration in Healthcare Management.
Part 5: Health Care Access and Affordability
For millions of Americans, the cost of healthcare is unaffordable and difficult to access, including underserved and minority populations. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), now more than ten years old, attempted to improve conditions through expanding public programs like Medicaid and subsidizing individual health insurance, but what has been the program’s benefits with underserved or minority populations? What are other ideas to make care affordable via private payers or government-run programs? Can the marketplace bring the cost of care down and enable underserved communities more / easier access to care to address comorbidities?
Randy Pate, former CMS Deputy Administrator and the Director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) will discuss this important topic with BioIQ’s Justin Bellante. Mr. Pate has lead CMS’ work on the individual and small group markets, including the Health Insurance Exchanges, state innovation waivers, and the effort to increase competition and choice for consumers.
Part 4: Rural Health in America
Responding to social determinates of health to improve care for medically-underserved communities.
Rural hospitals are disappearing rapidly. In rural America, more than 100 acute care facilities have closed over the past two and half years. Patients are now being triaged at local clinics, if one exists, then must travel to facilities that may be hours away for their care. That is a barrier to accessing healthcare—and just one of many. How does transportation and other social determinants of health (SDoH) factor into delivering healthcare for medically underserved and otherwise disadvantaged geographic areas?
BioIQ CEO Sean Slovenski will discuss this pressing topics with Donato Trumato, a noted healthcare advocate with a deep commitment to global health and more than 35 years of healthcare experience. Mr. Tramuto is an author, founder of Health eVillages, and the former CEO of Tivity Health, Inc., (Nasdaq: TVTY). He is widely recognized for his commitment to social change and transformational leadership in healthcare innovation that led The New York Times to deem him “a global health activist.”
Part 3: In-Person Learning During the COVID Pandemic
The experience of two independent schools and what it will take to resume in-person education nationally.
The coronavirus pandemic upended the educational system in the US forcing students, teachers, administrators, and parents to adapt to virtual learning. School districts around the country are struggling to determine if, and when, schools can be safely opened. It is clear that there must be some middle ground between closed, and open but with protections. But what exactly SHOULD those be?
Justin Bellante (BioIQ founder, president, COO) will explore these and other questions with Dr. Darria Long, a Harvard and Yale trained ER Doctor, nationally recognized health expert, national TV contributor, TedX speaker, and best-selling author of Mom Hacks.
Part 2: Technology Innovation is Driving Change for Healthcare Outcomes to Underserved Communities
Today, two of the biggest challenges in healthcare are accessibility and affordability. Nowhere is this more evident than in high-risk, underserved minority health populations, who have been impacted most severely by COVID19.
Eric Dishman, a global leader in healthcare innovation, will discuss how top tech innovations changes the game for population health and health disparities in the current pandemic and beyond.
Mr. Dishman is the founding Director of the All of Us research program, leading the effort to build the National Institute of Health (NIH) team, consortium, and infrastructure to launch recruitment and data collection nationally. Prior to All of Us, he was an Intel fellow and vice president of the Health and Life Sciences Group at Intel Corporation.
