Life Centered Healthcare

Dear Readers,

May this find you having a wonderful week! The newest episode of our podcast, Life-Centered Health Care, is now available. You can access it on Apple, Spotify, Amazon Music, and iHeartRadio.

In this episode, "Health Care ‘Home’ Run," I interview Zayna Khayat, Health Futurist at Deloitte Health Care and Life Sciences (Canada), adjunct faculty at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, and former Vice President at Teladoc Health Canada. We talk about the future of health care, and how innovators are redesigning health care to better address health needs in people’s own homes and lives. You won’t want to miss this!

Are there other change-making innovators you think I should interview, or topics you’d like me to cover? If so, please send me an email or reach out to me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

Over the past month on the blog, we wrote and shared articles from guest writers about innovators in the field and systems of care.

  • Kevin Ball, guest writer and Administrative Fellow at Geisinger Health System, wrote about Amazon Clinic and put it to our six-question test to determine its disruptive potential.
  • Emmanuelle wrote about self-care and how in order to actualize the impact of self-care, we need to integrate systems.
  • Nisha Pasupuleti, guest writer and System Director of Transformative Strategy, Population Health at CommonSpirit Health, shared how CommonSpirit is addressing drivers of health and leveraging a partnership ecosystem.
  • Todd Dunn, guest writer and Vice President of Innovation at Advocate Health, discussed his three-step process on how to shift innovation from a vague buzzword to a clear way to make progress by leveraging Christensen’s theories.

I hope you enjoy this month’s content. If you have any feedback on our work, please reply to this email. I love hearing from you.

This summer, we'll continue to highlight "innovators in action" from health care systems across the US. You won't want to miss out on them and the insights they share.

As always, thank you for reading!

Be well,
Ann Somers
