Rank #1: Hot Issues for State Legislatures in 2019 | OAS Episode 53. For our first podcast of 2019, we take a look at the key issues America’s state legislatures will be considering this year.

Rank #2: Criminal Justice Reform: A Bipartisan Issue | OAS Episode 68. While the country mostly hears how the political parties don’t work together, criminal justice reform is an untold story of how bipartisanship works. States are working together to reduce recidivism, provide released inmates a course for a productive future, and address the backgrounds and experiences of offenders to change behaviors.To illustrate that point, our podcast focuses on laws approved in two states, Mississippi and Colorado. Our guests are: Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R), who got bipartisan support for legislation to make major reforms on how the state works with former inmates. The former deputy sheriff says his thinking about nonviolent offenders has changed over time. Colorado Representative Leslie Herod (D), who has gained bipartisan support for measures addressing education opportunities for offenders, expanding the definition of crime victims, and removing “the box” to help former inmates seeking jobs or education.

Rank #1: Managing Risk in Population Health Management. Adventist Health's successful use of incentives to engage employees in population health sets a high bar for the program's imminent rollout to patients at Adventist-owned White Memorial Medical Center, notes Elizabeth Miller, Adventist's vice president of care management. In this interview, Ms. Miller describes the program's target population as well as the incentive that engaged 95 percent of its employees in health management. Elizabeth Miller will share the key features of the population health management program at White Memorial, the program's impact on Adventist's 27,000 employees and program rollout to its patient population during a January 22, 2014 webinar, "Managing Risk in Population Health Management," a 45-minute program sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
Rank #2: Aligning Value-Based Reimbursement with Physician Practice Transformation. In its quest to transform 70 to 80 percent of its physician practices to a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) over the next three years, WellPoint has adopted a "meet the practices where they are" philosophy, reports Julie Schilz, director of care delivery transformation for WellPoint. Each practice is at a different place in the transformation effort and requires specialized supports, she adds. Smoothing the transformation rollout is the simultaneous participation of 500 WellPoint practices in CMS's Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) program, whose goals dovetail with key PCMH principles --- as though WellPoint had another partner in its transformation initiative, Schilz notes. Just as important as practice support is transparency with health plan members, Schilz adds, especially when it comes to explaining the concept of the medical home neighborhood --- where care coordination is a collaboration between primary care and the specialist. Ms. Schilz shared the key features of WellPoint's transformation initiative, including results from its pilot program that have led to a system-wide rollout, during an October 24, 2013 webinar, "Aligning Value-Based Reimbursement with Physician Practice Transformation."

Rank #1: What lawmakers can do about gun violence, and helping black families save ancestral lands. Public pressure on lawmakers is growing across the country to reduce gun violence, but Congress may only be able to pass incremental legislation, explains CQ Roll Call’s legal affairs writer Todd Ruger. In the second segment of this podcast, we explore how Congress and a South Carolina center are trying to address the loss of land and wealth, particularly among African Americans, in what is commonly referred to as Heirs Property. Josh Walden of the Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation in South Carolina discusses how thousands of acres of land, from the south to Appalachia, may be in dispute because of the lack of legal records.
Rank #2: Navy Spends Epically on Shoddy Ships. For the U.S. Navy, buying warships that are defective, unfinished or both has become the norm. The habit is expensive, dangerous and leaves overworked sailors to deal with faulty ships in need of repair from day one. Yet, the practice has escaped sufficient scrutiny in Washington even though taxpayers are on the hook for repeated repairs, reports CQ's senior writer John M. Donnelly. Most new ships, he says, go to sea with one or more major defects — even after months of repair work and testing.

Rank #1: Introducing: Contributing Factors. Everyone has a health story. If you haven’t been a patient, someone close to you has. Each situation is different, a unique combination of factors ranging from a single genetic variation to the social, cultural and physical environment. At the same time, many of the processes and technologies used to prevent these situations - and treat them when they occur - are standardized. And in most cases, we only get to see part of the story. Even when we’re the patient, there are pieces of the process that remain unclear. We only get parts of the history of our disease; the genetic basis for our condition is confusing and often obscure; we don’t get a clear look at the people and companies working on new treatment options. With Contributing Factors, Health:Further is pulling back that curtain. We’ll be talking to clinicians, historians, economists, biomedical researchers, entrepreneurs, sociologists, investors and, most importantly, patients. Contributing Factors, Season 1: Depression, launches March 1. Join us as we explore the (whole) story of health.

Rank #2: Shifting Trust with Blockchain | John Bass | Hashed Health. John Bass is the second blockchain conversation we’ve had on the Podcast. The first was last summer with Kristen Johns of Waller Law, which gave us a great overview of blockchain. In this conversation, John Bass of Hashed Health goes into more of the current blockchain environment. He points out early on that there’s a lot of hype, but that the basic principles are well-proven. He also talks about some basic principles - the trust between two sides of a transaction that eliminates the need for a middle man - that blockchain creates. In the second half of the conversation we talk about the things that Hashed Health is doing with blockchain in healthcare. It’s Hashed-specific, but as examples of what is being done, what can be done, with blockchain. For example, decentralized provider identities.
