What Revolutionary Healthcare Leaders Are Consuming: The Top 7 on 4sighthealth.com Since Mid-2021

Below find the top-consumed 4sight Health content from the second half of 2021, from your favorite revolutionary healthcare leaders. All are available for you to consume on 4sighthealth.com.

1: All Roads Lead to Value Series & Podcasts

You know value is one of 4sight Health’s precepts. In this series with different Cain Brothers bankers, David Johnson takes a look at progress toward value for Health Systems (Part I), Physicians (Part II) and in Rural America (Part III). Read commentaries and accompanying podcast episodes. Look for Part 4, which discusses the last mile to the patient. 

2: State-Based Marketplaces 2.0 Series & Podcast, David Johnson & Rosemarie Day.

Despite Obamacare’s lack of dramatic progress or sweeping change at the federal level, reformers need not lose hope. In Part 1, we discuss how state-based marketplaces (SBMs) are quietly making health insurance provision more accessible, affordable and effective. In Part 2, we examine how SBMs have operated as experimental policy laboratories. They’ve taken their own paths to expanding consumer choice, increasing access to vital healthcare services, and lowering premiums. Special edition of 4sight Health Roundup with Rosemarie Day here

3: David Burda on Healthcare, speaking for consumers.

Dave’s columns always drive a point home, starting with a pain point we all feel. Here are some of our audience’s favorites.

5: How Healthcare Revolutionaries Think: 10 Questions with…

In 2021 we introduced a monthly series,
How Healthcare Revolutionaries Think. Interviews with Glen Tullman (Transcarent), Scott Powder (Advocate Aurora Enterprises) were favorites in the second half of 2021. The series will continue in 2022 with interviews with Kristen Valdez (b.well Connected Health) and Adrianne Nicholson (Oula).

6: See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil: Healthcare Systems’ Opportunities, Dr. Allen Weiss.

Readers always appreciate Allen’s view on the issues facing community healthcare. Here, he explains why healthcare executives must acknowledge the realities of the benefits they’re providing to the community to continue earning their tax-exempt status. Three studies show current weaknesses that impair nonprofit health systems’ ability to improve community well-being. Read all Allen’s articles here

7: How Science Education Can Stave Off Demagogues, Dr. Leroy Hood

Lee joined the 4sight Health platform in 2021, and we’re all smarter as a result. Here he shares his thinking that truth decay is marked by an inability of opposing sides to agree on common facts. Left unchecked, it forms the environment needed for demagogues to metamorphose into authoritarians. What might save us? Some might say “civics.” Lee, however, would say “science.” See all the content from Leroy Hood, MD, PhD, here

About the Authors

David Burda

Dave is 4sight Health’s biggest news junkie, resident journalist and healthcare historian. He began covering healthcare in 1983 and hasn’t stopped since. Dave writes his own column, “Burda on Health,” for us, contributes weekly blog posts, and manages our weekly e-newsletter and weekly podcast, 4sight Friday and 4sight Roundup.

Dave believes that healthcare is a business like any other business, and customers—patients—are king. If you do what’s right for patients, good business results will follow.

Dave’s personal experiences with the healthcare system both as a patient and family caregiver have shaped his point of view. It’s also been shaped by covering the industry for 35 years as a reporter and editor. He worked at Modern Healthcare for 25 years, the last 11 as editor.

Prior to Modern Healthcare, he did stints at the American Medical Record Association (now AHIMA) and the American Hospital Association. After Modern Healthcare, he wrote a monthly column for Twin Cities Business explaining healthcare trends to a business audience, and he developed and executed content marketing plans for leading healthcare corporations as the editorial director for healthcare strategies at MSP Communications.

When he’s not reading and writing about healthcare, Dave spends his time riding the trails of DuPage County, IL, on his bike, tending his vegetable garden and daydreaming about being a lobster fisherman in Maine. He lives in Wheaton, IL, with his lovely wife of 35 years and his three children, none of whom want to be journalists or lobster fishermen.
