"TV star. Doctor Asha on Fox News Sunday yesterday, no more COVID at the border. Come on in one. Come on in all. Listen to this. If you look across the country as an infection, some are still at a relatively historic low, hospitalizations are very low. And the CDC scientists determined that that title 42 is not necessary at the border. And by the way, that goes into effect in late May. It gives us time to assess things. And that's a public health decision made by the CDC. And I think that they're following the evidence as they see it. Wait a minute. Infections are at historic lows. Why do I keep hearing that we have to have a mask mandate again in like Philadelphia? Why do we still have to wear masks on airplanes? What are you talking about? Cases are on the rise. They're surging. They're spiking. They're ticking upward. Wait a minute, did I hear the COVID response coordinator just say? That infections are at relatively historic lows? Did I hear him say hospitalizations so that's why illegals can come pouring across the border and not be turned away? Because of title 42?

So very little notice was made when I arrived early this morning in Charlottesville. City public works trucks blocked off the parks to traffic, the area completely secured and the people who turned out for the residents who wanted to see these statues go.

Now, demand has started to plateau again, and that's leading the more discussion about what else can be done to increase the vaccination rate even more, a D C health leader told the council on Friday.

Right now, let's sit down to a 99 1 Studios in Washington, D C for World and National news with Sandie Mars. All Right, Thank you, Paul. We've been telling you that President Trump came out last night criticizing the pandemic relief bill. Saying, among other things, that it didn't include enough money for those individuals, Stimulus checks well, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to that right away. And now we can tell you that the House plans to proceed today on a bill that will replace those $600 stimulus checks with $2000 checks that the president says he wants. But the only way that measure will pass Is it? House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy is onboard. McCarthy's agreement is required for them to go ahead with the unanimous consent request. Pelosi says President Trump needs to put more pressure on members of his own party.

You were not necessarily a global health person. Now, you're jetting to Geneva on the regular is there another moment coming for you, doctor or or is the Harvard. Global health institute is this the last best job. You think you'll have voice a great question. You know, I saw first of all I'm extremely happy with the job. I have I feel like it gives me a lot of freedom to sort of think about what are the most important pressing issues. How do I garner the intellectual forces within Harvey? To focus on them. I think they're very few opportunities like that. But I am actively like not looking for a job. I get options come by. And I'm very happy where I am. That said, you know, what drives me probably more than anything else is opportunities that pushed me into new directions push me to new areas really forced me to learn new skills, and that has certainly been a major benefit of running this institute. And I think any opportunity I think about in the future is going to be driven by a Mike and be able to learn new things on my going to be able to be impactful uniquely situated to be impactful. If I can find another opportunity where I can have bigger impact and continue to learn new things always look at them. But right now on a day-to-day basis, I feel like I'm learning ton. And most days I can convince myself that I'm doing something useful. If the. Administration came calling an ask you to come on board and lead the rethinking of the re admissions policy set a job with considerable impact and appeal, you know, I find so many aspects of what goes on in this administration. So morally objectionable that it would be very hard for me to actually take a role on happy to advise. This is our government their policies have big impact.

"When the world is safer when there are not disease outbreaks happening around the world. So it's a very narrow understanding of America. I set the president's seems to a spouse. So I think he has created a lot of confusion because the policies have not changed dramatically. I mean, there are some specific areas serve around family planning where there have been dramatic changes in policy, but. We saw that with previous Republican administrations as well. But there has not been this big pullback that I think a lot of us were worried about that said, you know, the world continues to be a dangerous place when it comes to global health issues. So we do have this outbreak of Ebola in the DRC, and this is a place where America needs to take much greater leadership than it has. And we're not seeing that kind of forward thinking leadership from this administration in many ways what they've done is just continued what was happening before in terms of funding and support I think different administration. I even think Bush administration, George W Bush administration would have taken a more activist role in tackling these things because you know, when America leads it makes him ACA stronger and the world safer. You mentioned the -able outbreak. The second worst record Senator DRC in Africa. My reporting suggests that this administration specific. Inside chess has really been wrestling with how much to lean in versus lean out, and the CDC has not always been on the same page as HHS proper here in DC. The CDC has been more ambitious with what it has wanted to do HHS under the Trump administration less concerned with intervening amenable help break. Yeah. This just shows the tension within the US government because again CDC these are career public health leaders public health officials. They know I think what the right thing to do here is. And it's not just the right thing for the people of the DRC though. Of course, it is that, but it's just the right thing to do for the world, including for people in the United States, which is America should be very forward leaning. We should have people on the ground helping WHO helping other organizations combat and really get our arms around this outbreak. Because one of the things that we learned from the last Ebola outbreak in west Africa is. When the disease spreads it becomes much harder to manage. And while it remains in the DRC both for the sake of the people there but freely for all of us. It's super important that we'd be very forward leaning. Again, I understand that that creates a conflict with the stated policy of our president who thinks that we can put wall sup and keep viruses and diseases out not possible in the you're twenty nineteen. And so in the world that we live in that tension makes a lot of sense, you mentioned the change in family planning policies. Obviously here in the states were seeing that happen with changes to the title ten funding program, for instance. But that has also manifested in how the United States has changed documents shifted its policy internationally, and I've written on this..

"Of course, the hospital population in America did not get sick overnight. What happened was that hospital? So started coating for a lot more illnesses that meant that anything that uses risk adjustment. It's gonna look like you're taking care of sick patients in in your Yunessi drops in Viet missions or mortality from that. So probably about two-thirds. That's I think the best evidence on mortality there have been a couple of different studies. Right. And as you Lou they show a little bit of. Predicts refined ings the analyses that have been done by the Yale group that created the measure seems to not find much of a negative impact. Independent researchers who are not affiliated with the group that actually created the measure tend to find I think more worrisome findings. Here's my question. Okay. So we don't know for sure. How long do we wanna wait, and what's the cost of waiting? I mean, if the answer is that independent research suggests that mortality rates may be going up that to me is pretty concerning. And I would not say, hey, let's give it five more years and get really really sure that people are dying before we make changes to the policy that that's does not seem to me to be prudent. A much more prudent approach is to say there's enough evidence to be concerned. Let's think about changes to the policy so that we can get around this and really start addressing it. And that's the strategy that I would recommend to see a massive. They were to call me is to say, I don't think we have the luxury of waiting until all the date are in ho much of a risk of biases there in that the yell researchers who were paid to consult on the policy and help develop it are. Now, some of the most vocal advocates defending. So look I mean, this is this is an ongoing concern. In all of health care where you have issues of conflict of interest come up, I think over and over again in my mind Harlan krumholz, the kind of leader of the group who spend the the senior author and the advocate. He is. I think he is principal. I think he's trying to do the right thing. I think he's a good fundamentally good person. I don't have any questions about his ethics or or him as a scientist. And he's a very good scientists. I think the challenge is all of us have our eight biases, whether they be financial or intellectual and what I think is really important is we look across the broad set of data out there, though, the broad set of work that's been done and not be overly swayed by any one group or another and that and when I look at the tire landscape that I start seeing really concerning signs and signals. I don't discount the work that Harlan does because he's got a financial conflict. I just look at it in the product context of everything else that's out there. It's always risky in terms of bias asking a Harvard leader what he thinks of Yale. I I will tell listeners that if they're curious for more, Dr krumholz perspective, I'll make sure that there's a link or two in the show notes. There was a story by Paul span and your times recently that quoted Dr krumholz, and he has been a prolific and defending the policy as well. In the time that we have left I wanted to shift to some of your other work. You're just back from the trip to Geneva, your Harvard's global health leader, you direct institute. What does the world think of the United States health strategy now two years into the Trump administration? Yeah, it's a very good question. And I think it's very confusing in some ways. So look it's worth remembering that, the US the government, but also through nonprofit organizations like the Gates Foundation. But even if you just take the US government, the dominant funder of global health in the world. It's the biggest funder of WHO. It's the biggest funder of research into diseases that are we think of as sort of traditionally neglected so US remains a very important force for global health and a very important force for good in global health. And yet what you get out of the administration certainly out of the president is his constant talk of America for America first. And of course, in my mind misunderstanding what it means to be America. First person. It's good for America. When the world is healthier..

"Next week, our guests, we'll have to travel through timer. Something why were you in Europe? What was the occasion? So I was in Geneva been some meetings. The I do a lot of work on global health and thinking about health systems around the globe. And and a lot of those meetings happen in Geneva because of the World Health Organization and other entities that are there. So I was only there for a couple of days. There are a lot of public health problems occupying the minds of global health leaders. There's A Bola in the Congo. There's climate change. There are. Concerns about drug pricing. The list goes on where does hospital readmissions this issue where millions of patients have to go back to the hospital shortly after being discharged where does that rank as a public health priority for you? So I think hospital readmissions are really important problem. You know, it's an area where I mean, again, it is hard to know how to compare it to Ebola or or climate change. Those are of course, very big issues, but for our healthcare system for Americans, and I would actually say for people in lots of other countries as well thinking about how to make sure that hospital cares high-quality. It's fission is enormously important and readmissions are an important part of that discussion, we should do some framing for the audience. When reason I wanted to talk to she is because readmissions have been in the news under the Affordable Care Act. There was a program the hospital readmissions reduction program that was launched about six years ago results from that program are. Coming in. And the goal was to encourage hospitals to provide better care and make sure that when patients were discharged, they didn't have to come back within a handful of days or weeks. There is now concern looking at some recent studies that hospitals are either gaming the system or that the patients who are moose at risk are suffering from this program, white what is the top line to you on what we have learned about readmissions over the past number of years. Yes. If we take a step back and ask why did we even create this program? I mean, it seemed so obvious on the face of it that people were bouncing back within a week within a month. And we said boy like, you know, if you had to take your car back to the mechanic within a few days with any frequency you'd say that's a problem. We gotta we gotta fix that. It turns out people are not cars and hospitals are not like mechanics. People are sick and complicated and the top line. Is there have been a host of problems with this readmission penalty program, and almost all of them were predictable safety net hospitals have really gotten crushed under this program. They've got most of the penalties. And now we're starting to see data that mortality rates might have actually gone up because hospitals were trying to avoid readmitting people who probably needed the hospital. The hospital is a great place. If you're really sick a need it. And I think this program may have actually done more harm than good. In terms of the patients said it's supposed to serve you say that these problems were predictable in do remember at a conference a couple of years ago, you were raising concerns than that the incentives were pointed the wrong direction. Was there something that you saw in the early data? Or was it just in the way that the plan was constructed that was so concerning to you back then. So there were a few things I were pretty obvious from the beginning. Right. One was. At a critical part of all of these things is you gotta get risk adjustment. Right. You gotta make sure that if you're a hospital that takes care of really sick people. You're not getting penalized more than if you're a hospital that has relatively healthy people yet, we knew that the models for readmissions. Didn't get risk adjustment down. Very well, the second things that they completely ignored social factors. Look, if you've got a homeless population that you're carrying for, you know, those people are gonna have a much harder time getting good care after they're discharged. And you don't wanna penalize hospitals for taking care of poor people in yet. We we knew that's what the penalty program was gonna do. So there was a bunch of stuff that was predictable just based on how it was constructed..
