The Crux Points team is taking this week off, so in the place of a new episode, we’re replaying one of our more popular episodes from earlier this year. This episode is especially relevant today, as telehealth and telemedicine are dominating headlines, whether its providers investing in the adoption of telemedicine or consumers showing a preference for telehealth over in-person visits. Enjoy the episode.
Price Transparency: The Healthcare Consumer’s View
David Schleifer, a senior research associate at Public Agenda, joins Crux Points to discuss his most recent research, “How Much Will It Cost? How Americans Use Prices in Health Care.” In an extended version of the podcast, we take a deep dive into how consumers are interacting with transparency.
Telehealth: Embracing New Technologies to Improve Patient Experience
Bret Larsen and Glen McCracken, founders of eVisit, join the Crux Points podcast to discuss the adoption and success of their telehealth platform, eVisit, how healthcare is currently being disrupted by telehealth technologies, and how healthcare leaders can embrace this disruption.
Asynchronous Video and Backyard Spaceships: A Start-up’s View of Healthcare
Nick Adkins, Co-Founder, COO and stuff at ReelDx, discusses how asynchronous video can be used to enhance the care experience, how he sees startups leading the transformation of healthcare and how he ended up with a spaceship in his back yard.
Disruption and Healthcare: How Providers Can Be Prepared
In this episode of the Crux Points podcast, we’re talking about disruption theory. It’s an interesting topic, as many believe that healthcare is being disrupted on many fronts – through retail-based clinics, telehealth and wearables just to name a few. And the “father” of disruption theory is Clayton Christensen, the Harvard professor who wrote the groundbreaking book The Innovators Dilemma in 1997. And one of his follow ups, The Innovators Prescription – A Disruptive Solution for Healthcare is required reading at many healthcare organizations.
