COVID-19: Data: Beyond the Numbers
Are you drowning in seemingly useless data?Every aspect of a health center’s operations can be tracked using data, but it is the health centers that utilize data to problem-solve and innovate that are the most successful. Not only does this podcast discuss the ways data can be tracked and what should be tracked, but also methods to apply data to innovation to avoid its collection being “busy work.” Data expert and former Coleman Associate Carlos Avina, joins us in this podcast to discuss the ways health centers can utilize data creatively. In our order for data to be used to its potential, you must develop it, understand it, and tie it back to a purpose. This process begins by identifying goals and data metrics that relate to those goals which provide the opportunity to assess yourself against industry standards. According to Avina, this process of data utilization can help an organization identify problems, create solutions to pre-existing problems, and be predictive of patterns within the organization. Through healthcare and other examples, Avina will navigate you through starting the big data conversation within your organization to ways to fully utilize data.

COVID-19: Telehealth: Trust your Gut
This installment will come at a time where many providers may find themselves pushed into the deep end of telehealth. This is a round table interview with four medical doctors about providing telehealth. Some have just started and some have been providing telehealth services for a few years. As a disclaimer none of these conversations are meant to provide medical advice, diagnostic advice, etc. it’s surely operational and process advice only. Synopsis: As we grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been challenged to change the way we think about how healthcare is delivered. Because of social distancing guidelines and people’s overall desire to limit their contact with others, telehealth exams have emerged as one of the most efficient ways to deliver medical care to patients without physically coming into contact with them. Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic communication technologies.This podcast offers insight into telehealth visits through an interview with four physicians. These doctors explain what a telehealth exam looks like as well as the obvious and subtle differences between telehealth exams and in-person exams. They share how they handled their own skepticism during the transition to seeing patients via telehealth and how they moved to see patients who presented with more complicated symptoms via telehealth. They also share how they helped their patients deal with their own skepticism about this new way of seeking care. In short, this transition brought these providers back to the basics: trusting their gut. Telehealth exams are an innovative way to deliver medical care to patients without the added risk of an in-person exam during a pandemic. If you are curious about what a telehealth exam is or how to get over the hump of being confident in the quality of care you are providing via telehealth, this is the podcast for you. Through sharing personal experiences, these doctors can prepare you for what to expect during your telehealth exam and touch on common questions that people have about these exams. Host:Ryan Jury

Changing Habits to Combat COVID-19
This weekend we recorded a special episode in relation to the current events. We are going to explore how habits can diminish our ability to combat COVID19 in the healthcare setting. We interview Mellisa Stratman and explore some strategies around communication, scheduling, decision making, and coaching. We hope you enjoy it, and please be safe out there. Synopsis: We are in unprecedented territory with COVID-19, and it is crucial to remain innovative in our ability to combat it in the healthcare setting. This podcast offers insight into how our habits can help or diminish our ability to do this. Through discussing strategies around communication, scheduling decision-making, and coaching, we want you to be better equipped to combat COVID-19 in a healthcare setting.When communicating, make it a habit to relay to people what is in it for them, and connect the communication directly to the person. Joining behaviors and outcomes can alter people’s perception of communication and will help interest them in hearing what message follows. Additionally, your discussions must make people feel supported and acknowledged. Lastly, always make a habit of communicating clearly. After communication, this podcast evaluations scheduling decisions. Does your patient need to come in for their follow-up, or can their needs be met through a virtual visit? The habit is meeting face to face, but by making this decision with patients, we can change that habit and prioritize in-person access for groups that need it most. Lastly, this podcast offers insight on how to coach to be successful. With the vast amount of change happening right now, staff must be coached through these changes. Once you decide to do a new process, communicate well, guide your team through the transition by leading through example, and giving feedback to ensure improvement and successTweet us @colemanassoc, send us an email, or follow us on Facebook.Guests: Melissa StratmanHost:Ryan Jury

Now that's Integrated Health!
In this episode, we discuss behavioral health models with Kaitlin Boger, E.d.D, LMSW, LMAC the Director of Integrated Care at Hunter Health. The line between integrated health and behavioral health can be a blurry line for some organizations. Hear first-hand in this podcast how Hunter Health Clinic does integrated health from Director of Integrated Care, Kaitlin Boger. Kaitlin walks us through the difference between Behavioral Health (BH) and the BH Integrated care model and its evolution over time. Additionally, how Hunter provides access to patients needing behavioral health services. Kaitlin describes the way in which their integrated care model reduces the patient wait time between seeing the medical provider and the behavioral health specialist. Rather than seeing patients after the provider, integrated care consultants began seeing patients before the medical provider, which she realized allowed them to provide better care as they often uncover more details from each patient. The integrated care model allows wider access to behavioral health for the entire community. If your organization or health center is looking to improve upon its integrated BH model, this podcast will provide you with experience and tips to improve your systemTweet us @colemanassoc, send us an email, or follow us on Facebook.Guests:@Kaitlin Boger, E.d.D, LMSW, LMACHost:@AmandaLaramie@Ryan Jury

Leadership Series: Validate me!
In this special Leadership Series, we interview Amy Feimer, CEO of Hunter Health, a FQHC and Urban Indian Health Program in Wichita, Kansas. We learn how Amy and her team achieved a 36% reduction in their patient cycle time (70 to 45 mins), a 99% charting completion rate, a 48% reduction in their abandoned call rate (25% to 13%) and an increased staff engagement score in the 89% percentile.This episode highlights ways to improve both provider and staff satisfaction in ambulatory care. Amy describes the ways in which her organization improved upon their abandoned call rate, their cycle time, and their documentation process and turn around time. Additionally, we hear insights she has had on how to lead people through change and the ways in which coaching people on data can be beneficial.Hunter Health reduced their abandoned call rate by redefining roles responsible for that rate and by using data to anticipate when peaks would require staffing shifts. Cycle time reduced nearly 35 minutes by implementing the DPI™ team dance workflow and a sheep and shepherd model of care. In this model and workflow, there is a designated lead in charge of directing workflow. This model also improved upon their documentation process as teams began charting in real-time. Through these changes and the implementation of a validation process, the organization has jumped to the 80th percentile in staff engagement scores. Listen to this podcast to hear exactly how Hunter Health was able to implement these changes, as well as how it helped their staff.
