Rank #2: Nov. 02, 2018: How accurate are health headlines in your social media feed?.
Every day we are bombarded with health news in our social media feeds: from studies touting the benefits—or harms—of a particular food to research on a new treatment for a disease. But how accurate are those headlines? That's the question a multidisciplinary research team led by Noah Haber, ScD '19, tried to answer. And their findings showed that health news shared in social media is likely to be overstated and/or inaccurate. In this week’s episode, we speak with Haber about how that happens—and what can be done to improve health reporting.

Rank #1: Improving Transitions of Care Between Hospital and SNF: A Collaboration Supporting the Accountable Care Vision.
Working with a network of 40 skilled nursing facilities to hone the hospital-to-SNF transfer of care has accomplished two goals for Summa Health System: readmissions and lengths of stay for patients released to SNFs have been reduced, and the experience has made hospitals and SNFs more accountable for both the quality and cost of care they provide. Carolyn Holder, manager of transitional care for Summa Health System, describes what had to happen before this critical care transition could improve and why physicians had to rethink their approach to hospital-to-SNF transfers. Holder and Michael Demagall, administrator of Bath Manor and Windsong Care Center, an SNF participating in the network, will describe their collaboration during "Improving Transitions of Care Between Hospital and SNF: A Collaboration Supporting the Accountable Care Vision," a 60-minute webinar on April 6, 2011.
Rank #2: Minimum Medical Loss Ratios: How Health Plans Should Prepare for the January Compliance Requirements .

In this podcast, the advisors also describe the risk that insurers could incur on the rebate side if they don't adequately prepare for the January changes and the impact the regulations could have on consumers' medical care and choices. Steele and Young will provide an in-depth analysis of what health plans must do now to comply with the January deadline for MLRs and how this might impact health plans operationally and financially during "Minimum Medical Loss Ratios: How Health Plans Should Prepare for the January Compliance Requirements," a 60-minute webinar on July 21, 2010.

Rank #1: College Students and Mental Health: Confronting an Emerging Crisis.
Mental health issues are alarmingly on the rise among college students, and a serious gap exists in campus services to help them. What can be done to meet this growing need, spurred by issues of anxiety and depression, that has been described as sudden and dramatic by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health? In a spring 2017 survey by the American College Health Association, 39 percent of college students reported feeling so depressed that they were having trouble functioning, and 61 percent said that they had overwhelming anxiety in the previous 12 months. This Forum served as a call to action, asking how to develop a campus culture that prioritizes the prevention of mental health issues and the destigmatization of existing conditions. An expert panel featured leaders from academia, mental health advocacy and psychology, who spoke from a public health and health care delivery perspective. How do we support students in need; remove barriers, particularly for already marginalized students; boost communication; and promote wellness drivers, such as improved sleep, nutrition, exercise and social connectedness? And how do we gather the much-needed evidence for public health policies? Part of The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with HuffPost on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
