The Happy Doc
About This Show
Welcome to The Happy Doc and I am Dr. Taylor Brana, your host. This show highlights physicians and health professionals who are inspired, fulfilled, innovative, and much more. By learning about these guests, you are joining me on a journey of understanding what it takes to be a happy doctor. It's time to pick up your earbuds and get ready to learn from guests who will transform your life.
To give you some background, in my 3rd year of medical school, I reached a point of complete exhaustion. I felt concerned about my future, I was anxious, and many of the physicians I worked with weren't happy (more often, they were burnt out). Reading all of the articles about physician burnout and reflecting on my clinical experiences, I grew more and more concerned about my own life in the world of medicine. I wanted to understand if it was even possible to be a happy doctor.
Fast forward and we have a podcast and website that has highlighted more than 50 physicians, and a team behind this podcast to help produce the show. We have learned so much and it truly has transformed my life and all of those who have been involved in this process. There is so much information beyond clinical medicine that we can learn to enhance the quality of our lives, and we call this "The Hidden Curriculum." We are on a mission to change the individual student, doctor, and the culture of medicine as a whole by providing this valuable education.
As a Resident Physician, my life has already transformed by being a part of this process, I know learning from our awesome guests can do the same for you. Thank you for being a part of this journey towards a fulfilled and happy life as a doctor.

HPEC.IO | A Block Chain Technology With Major Implications To Physicians And Healthcare | Leah Houston MD
3 days ago
Dr. Leah Houston is an Emergency Medicine Physician practicing precision medicine in New York. Dr. Leah is also the founder of HPEC.IO a blockchain technology that has major implications for physicians and the healthcare system at large. In this conversation we learn about: 1. Dr. Houston's early interest in medicine 2. A credentialing and identity breach that impacted Dr. Leah's career, but also resulted as the inspiration for HPEC.IO 3. How physician credentialing is an antiquated system 4. A brief discussion about blockchain technology 5. What HPEC.IO is and how it works 6. The implications of this technology 7. A tip for the listeners A brief explanation of HPEC.IO: Dr. Houston has created Humanitarian Physician Empowerment Community (HPEC), a physician-owned community that utilizes blockchain technology. Block Chain technology allows information to be stored, encrypted, and protected via a network of computers to create a distributed ledger. Instead of third parties requiring physicians to verify credentialing, this new system allows physicians to upload their data and have it protected without third-party interference. Leah hopes to invite physicians to be founding members of HPEC and help create the future of healthcare. www.hpec.io Implications Of The Technology This technology has the ability to (not an exhaustive list): 1.Give physicians a secure self-sovereign digital identity 2. Allow credentialing process of physicians to be exponentially faster 3. Remove third-party involvement from physician identity and bring autonomy and control back to physicians 4. Bring physicians onto one platform in order to vote and influence health care policy and practice 5.
