The Impact Of Digital Health And Telemedicine - HC E14
Hi, this is Nick Webb and welcome to another episode of the Healthcare Cure podcast. You know, in my career, I've had the opportunity to meet some amazing people and to learn from their journey. And that's what I love about this podcast is to be able to really spend some time with some incredible people that are actually making a difference. And there's a name that kept on coming up to me over and over again when I started my work at the university. And it was Dr. Pakia. And Dr. Pakia is not a theorist. What he talks about isn't conceptual. It isn't ideas without foundation. He's a practitioner. And you know, I read so much about the impact of technology and the and the impact of emerging trends from people who really are not seeing patients and are not living this on a humanistic level, the impact on the on the patient and the way in which we have this beautiful convergence between technology and emerging resources and the human. And that's really what I'd like to talk to Dr. Pakia about today. And, but what I'd like to first say first of all, welcome to the program, and I'd love for you to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit more about your journey. Nick, thanks for having me on board. Pleasure to be here. It all started out about 35 - 40 years ago, off to medical school, I went after looking at different careers pathways, I was fortunate enough to be admitted to Michigan State University trained in osteopathic medicine. There did postgraduate moving back out west, I was born and raised in the greater LA area. Focused on primary care and met up with some folks in Orange County, California spent 25 years there and then private practice private group practice, practicing in a variety of different settings everything from standard ambulatory care medical office to the admitting of patients to the trauma center next door. And, and then in the outpatient or remote setting, nursing homes, rehab centers, house calls, etc. So I was fortunate to have that that type of experience prior to moving out to the desert area with a health system that was beginning the process of starting an advanced primary care model for its you know, Health System strategy started with five physicians there are about 10 years ago now with with a view toward implementing a primary care residency program as well and 10 years later, and 240 clinicians later and 90 residents in training. It's been an interesting and informative run. So that brings us up to today. Thank you for asking. That's terrific. You know, it's interesting, I remember you and I talking a few years back about the inevitable impact of telemedicine and, and I think, you know, we were both sort of surprised that the adoption of telemedicine was so slow and it felt like that most people when they thought about telemedicine, they saw the interaction telemedicine of having some degree of sterility between the patient and the caregiver. And it's interesting we we were lucky enough to have scripps in our in our documentary film, and you know, they were very much ramping up, they understood the inevitable benefits of being able to provide access to patients quickly. You know, if somebody has a urinary tract infection rather than sitting in the emergency room or an urgent care for hours, they could quickly see a caregiver, get diagnosed and get intervention in a way that was frictionless. And of course, that's one of the big movements as we think about these four big trends in healthcare that I talked about in my upcoming book, The Healthcare Mandate that'll be out this September, is that we see hyper consumerization patients are demanding not just efficacious, safe and beautiful care. They also want amazing experiences. They want it to be friction free, they want it to be convenient and relevant.

Interview with David Redding - HC E13
Hi, this is Nicholas Webb and welcome to another episode of The Healthcare Cure podcast. Today I have an amazing individual, Dr. David Redding, who really has inspired me to to continue my journey personally to to really live as long as I can, and he's going to talk about his, was it the hundred year club? What was the club that you were talking about? It's called the Moses club because he was 120 years old. 120 years. That's our goal. I love that. And and I love his approach. He combines really a lot of different teachings and a lot of different ideas to be able to bring together a real focus on prevention, over gratuitous intervention, which I think is a big part of the problem. You know, 80% of healthcare costs are now estimated to be represent or 80% of healthcare costs are self inflicted chronic disease, in other words, preventable diseases. And it's not just the fact that we could save this money, we could improve the quality of lives for hundreds of millions of people. So I think that this is, is good work. And he was gracious enough to be on our on our documentary film, which will be out this November. And so Dr. Redding, why don't you share with us your amazing journey? Well, let's go ahead and start within the very beginning because I was grew up basically in a very poor family, and I was drafted in the military during the Vietnam era. And it led to a series of opportunities that were just quite wonderful for me. When I got out of the military. I had the GI Bill, so I started going to school and I finally found out my niche was physical therapy. So I went ahead and went to Cal State Long Beach PT program, and was a physical therapist there for about 10 years I work at Casa Colina hospital. And a student came in one day after being there about eight years. And he said, Yeah, I'm going to be a physician. Now he was about 35 - 36. And I understood that once you're past about 30, that you're really not open to medical education is not really open to you. And then I talked to him about his journey. And he was saying basically that as an osteopathic physician, that they're much more open to age limitations. And so I said, Tell me a little bit about this osteopathic because I had no idea what he was talking about. And he talked about a philosophy that I absolutely love, which was to focus on the whole person kind of body mind spirit approach, and to see if you could encourage healthy, find out what the problem is, and see if you can address the problem, so not to focus so much on the symptoms, but really what is the underlying cause of their problem? And so I was so enticed by what he said that he went down there and checked it out. And then it started going through all the prerequisites. But I recognized that with my background. Once my mother, I'd come home from PT from working at Casa Colina, and my mother actually was in the process of making dinner. And she said, time for dinner and so I started walking over there. My dad started walking over to the table, and my mother passed out just as I got there. And she went on the floor, I laid her down gently, I said, Dad, call 911. And he just stood there, frozen late, my mother down, tilted her head back, got ready for CPR. I said, Dad call 911. And so finally he did and as I tilt her head back to give her initial breath of air, she started breathing in and when she started breathing in an ambulance came to the hospital and I found out that she had an overdose of a new medication that she was taking. And I realized over and over again, when you look at the statistics related to medication issues, there's over 100,000 people that die every year in the United States from properly prescribed medications, especially if you take in more than two medications at a time. If you take a look at just gi bleed, which kills about 100,000 people a year, that's related to people taking insets I'm sorry.

Interview with Azaria Lewis - HC E12
Hi, this is Nicholas Webb and welcome to another episode of The Healthcare Cure podcast. You know, I've had an interesting journey in my career as a management consultant as a owner of various medical companies throughout the years. And, you know, I realized in my later life that I had the opportunity to start hearing different voices and getting different vantage points. And that's really what I love about my opportunity to meet and work with people at the university I had a chance to evolve even at my ripe age of 62, I began to realize that we are inventing the wrong things. We're inventing more gratuitous interventions and more treatments and more drugs and more and more and more. And many of these, of course, are important. But what about using our innovative prowess to invent more health in sort of more treatment? I think that to me is the thing that Dr. Power and I were most interested in when we started this process of Fixing Healthcare documentary film. One of the most amazing people that I've had the honor to meet is on the screen today with us, and she is incredible. I, you know, I it's so funny, because you think you write the books and you give the lectures and you think you know everything of you. The other day, we were talking, and she said, Yeah, Nick, so what about the, you know, the food pharmacy? And I'm like, Well, you know, I am a learned expert in this and wait, what, what's the food pharmacy? And the next thing I know, my mind is blown. And Azaria taught me that there is a whole new way of looking at the prescription of interventions, and that resulted in this amazing, amazing, enlightening for me and hopefully for you the listener. But before we go into that, I'd like for Azaria to talk a little bit about her journey. She really is an amazing person. I wish that she was running for the President of the United States right now, because I would be her campaign manager, and she would be elected and in a heartbeat, she's just has a beautiful spirit. I love the fact that everything that she talks about always is about being able to impact other people. And that's beautiful. And unfortunately, we just don't have enough of that right now. And I probably should stop doting on you Azaria. But why don't we, why don't you introduce us to your awesomeness by telling us about your journey. Awesome. Thank you so much for that amazing intro. My name is Azaria Lewis. I am a second year at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific at Western U. My journey so, I went to UC Davis as an undergrad and kind of experienced some some challenges academically, which led to my going to Charles R. Drew University, which is in Watts, California for post baccalaureate certificate. And you know, it was there that I really saw, you know what a food desert looks like what an underserved community looks like. And the impacts of that, right across the street from our university is the Martin Luther King hospital, which was known at the time as the killer King hospital because so many deaths happen at that hospital. And I think it was that that moment that I realized, how disadvantaged some communities of color and communities that are socioeconomically lower, socioeconomically lower status were impacted by, you know, social issues but also the health care system, how they kind of neglected in general. And you know, my childhood, early on, we would be considered lower socioeconomic status, my parents worked really hard to move us up the ranks, so I wasn't really exposed until that moment, you know, attending that university for two years, so really opened my eyes and impassioned me. And my goal since then, has been to figure out solutions to the problem that impacts so many people of color and so many people who were low socioeconomic status. So that's been my mission since and I was fortunate to get a master's degree at Western U.
