As an emergency physician and former Harvard faculty, Dr. Kevin Ban has always been fascinated with the connections that bind clinicians to their patients and to each other (and their community). We talk about restoring these connections in Health 3.0.
As an RN who has worked in downtown, inner-city ERs (Vegas and Seattle), as well as SNFs, I wonder how you feel about the Code Black documentary and what it represents with regard to health 3.0... Additionally, how do you feel about nurses getting IT degrees and building better systems for all of us because it would be built for us, by us, in order to most efficiently help our patients? I wholeheartedly feel our system is broken and want to help....
An incredibly interesting and important discussion about the need to make Health 3.0 a reality and let doctors connect with patients again. I am glad "Doc Vader" was brought into the mix (albeit briefly), too. The humor and cleverness of the character is helping to raise awareness about what is broken with medicine in America. Anyway, I love these dialogues with the personable members of the "brain trust" of the medical community. Go ZDoggMD!
In the future a useful AI could absolutely do all the things described. I would think that an idealized version of this is: AI is intelligently recording and transcribing patient encounters and generating documentation in real time. A scribe is using their humanistic intuitive ability to separate the wheat from the chaff while observing the clinicians encounter with the patient - which is really the reason the scribe is there because I guarantee you they're pre-med or a nursing student getting that resume building clinical exposure for their next application - and comes up with a final draft for the clinician to go over and sign off on - note, orders, all of it. The AI already has all the compliance stuff suitcased so the people can be more than just meat servos keyboard actuators. EVeryone gets something out of it. The doc gets their meaningful encounter, the scribe gets their clinical exp, the software company makes their $$$ off the AI sales, the admin sees higher throughput, the patient feels like they spoke to their provider without feeling like they just filled out another pointless survey.
I’ve been with my PCP for the last fourteen or so years. For the past five years my doctor has turned toward CHR. This is my typical visit now...
The medical assistant walks into the exam room pushing a tiny stand (oddly enough shaped like a kidney) with a small tablet with a keyboard attached to it. Without looking at me, we go through rapid fire questions to which the only reply I receive after answering each one is either another question or just keyboard/mouse clicking sounds. The medical assistant leaves asking me to get undressed and into a paper gown. I’m only there for a 3 month oral medication follow up. 🤨
My PCP comes in pushing another said kidney shaped stand. He at least says “Hi, Ms. P—“ and then goes into his rapid fire questioning while I watch him click and type away. My medication change is for migraine management. He listens to my breathing and tells me I’m okay for another 3 months.
I dutifully get redressed, wondering why I had to contort in a effort to hide in a paper gown.... for a migraine medication check. 🤔 I am left to ponder why I must keep repeating this insane ballet for a non-controlled prophylactic medication that I’ve been on for years. I have no hx or current BP or respiratory issues.
I’m a health care advocate and RN, yet until I watched this and wrote this all down, didn’t fully realize the insanity Health Care 2.0 is. 🤪
I’m a newbie to ZDoggMD so thank you for the education. Time for me to doctor shop and/or be more vocal at my next visit. 👍
Temporary Interloper ~ I shall not ask them that, and will choose to appreciate their willingness to start a discussion. I’m not expecting them to be crusaders. They are initiators, and I applaud their efforts.
If you are looking for a tit-for-tat debate about their “hidden agenda(s)”, you are addressing the wrong person. I don’t know either of them personally. I’m commenting on a video that I happen to agree with.
I, personally, agree with what they are saying based on America’s current health care industry. I know nothing about Germany’s and won’t begin to compare/debate the two.
Those guys will NOT endorse ANY health care reform that reduces their income one red cent. BTW, Germany which provides top quality health care to its citizens, has a per capita health care cost that is 47% lower than the U.S. per capita cost. Ask Dr. ZDoggMD and his handsome MD pals if they would sign up to the German model because it would provide quality services to their patients at a much lower cost.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
