When i'm telling my story in a book documentary and that part of my life comes up. I may tell that story but the tweet it right.

"The answer should that have a lot to do? With. What? I'm seeing right now in the. In. The field if you will And I'll get to that trend at the end of it the end of the question. But when you have me, what would I do to structure it? I would say Work with what you have assess your department's expertise and design your initial workflows around that You'RE GONNA have deficit in areas of expertise that you're gonNA want but that's okay. You can either then grow your own expertise in the various slowly send your people for certification in charge capture charge master in whatever electronics solution you're using It can be all done remotely now obviously I it. It lends some awesome interesting to the roles as well as people get certified in these things and it makes the career path more meaningful for a lot of these professionals because it's slowly becoming an actual of profession or discipline within the Revenue Cycle. Develop a culture that aligns revenue cycle operations, clinical administration, and it with revenue, integrity relationship building is probably. The most important thing I can think of in in creating a successful department you've gotta be able to call had a pharmacy or or their designated at any given moment and say what's up with this job? What is the? What is the does you how still you but you've got to be able to call up the IT team because they're the ones who are actually inputting data or changing things within the system and we found And developed and I would highly recommend this to other other organizations what we call weekly workgroups. With the same people I just mentioned as a part of those though retinue integrity of the lead meeting but it's got representation from all the modules and all the actual clinical areas so. We don't do all at one time. The best example is. Will, which is ethics pharmacy modules wasn't we? We have a call that includes my alright team, not the whole team, but a couple of them it includes clinicians who pharmacist it includes it people as well as the hospital billing and we just those through issues at the time that we always say we have a chance to talk about the money. And these these workgroups they're not committees and task forces. We just wanted to fly low under the radar. It's not a big deal but if the chancellor we get to work together to answer the questions of problem because otherwise. You're dealing in a situation where you have nothing but email communication and issues that are too complex. Really follow email get really lost overtime so we keep minute.

"In, what I call and I've written about a very mature revenue integrity programs. So the the I mentioned charge Master Capture Audit Review, all these protocols, and so forth. That's like the bread and butter of of an alright program if you get into law enforcement or behind. you really have mature program sometimes, it sits over in internal audit. Sometimes, it says in the in the world of compliance there's little lot publicly lately about how having people with the expertise that rubbing entire career folks have being ones that are also doing the Self Auditing Review is the most effective. So something I developed Cedar Sinai about. Cash seven years ago we something called the Government Audit, program or gaps or short what we did is. We took it on in our I'd belts small team. Hugh. Standardize our approach to all external external government audit. We don't do commercial sort of denial management that's over on the side we work with that sometimes, but this is more focused on the government side. So what we do is we can talk our own self on it We we near pretty much to the way that a an. Audit done and we have a plan for the year and some of them are evergreen like we check our from certain issue there endless certain issues or check, and they come up of of areas of concern were interest. And then we also bought a database built it up so that we can identify what is that risks the organization at any point in time. Relative to the type of all of that is being conducted. So the RAC audit or G. or a MAC even internal self audit all of these things are categorized and. Financially put into the systems that we understand what risks and it's been a successful program not only investigating our risk. We'd been advocate from behalf of hospital. With regard, you issues and challenges we find within you know payment structures if you will or in CDs and so forth we've been challenging for coverage decision that national level and it both provided the financial leadership of the organization the information they need to understand what our risk is at any point in time financially, and that's been an interesting program in WANNA which I hope to see our I department kind of full you know fill out in fully developed. And then your accountants that seems that seems pretty straightforward. But what do you mean by that? Now. Any alright program you know even though even though we're electronic and you think that everything worked perfectly in an electronic environment, we all know now that it doesn't it works better and I am a big fan of it but you know nothing's perfect One of the things I think is a discipline at near and dear to the heart of most are professionals is..

"Yeah definitely, we we tend to see a lot of these cases in our cardiac ICU fellows were really running our cardiac ICU. So we we do have a lot of patients that we have to deal with the end of life and those tough conversations in when we have limited options left for us. That's definitely one of the harder parts of fellowship in. Being a physician in general I think probably one of the most rewarding like you were saying because we have the ability to really shave impact that experience which is an awful experience for patients for families but we can do a very big part in making it better. Yeah, I. Guess that one other thing I wanna add is at cedars I think it's a little bit of a double edged sword in terms of having all of these auctions for things that we can do to people in including things like Act Mohan's very advanced ways of keeping people alive because it's great to have these options but at the same time I think it's just as hard to also realize when to. Stop and when it makes sense to take a step back and not proceed with some of the more advanced treatment as well. So as Rooney highlighted, I think we do struggle and engage in these sorts of conversations discussions all the time with many of the very sick patients that we see in the see cu and it's a very challenging but also I think a very fulfilling part of what we do as doctors. Yeah one of the things I. Find Interesting about going through the evidence is that it's not just for US patients and families will understand fair medical issues in different ways in they'll want different information depending on the situation. It's helpful to be able to prognosticate or to give numbers for people who want that sort of information. This is all absolutely tremendous in such an important conversation to have a care that you all provided as a system I think is just absolutely exemplary and I'd love to hear from each a few y you love cardiology and what me so heart flutter about training at Cedar Sinai. Yeah. So I think some of the things that were highlighted in this particular case are some of the reasons that all of us are so excited you don't know what each call night's GonNa have in store for you. But what you do know is that you have every resource at your disposal I think that the high volume is something that makes this challenging and rewarding and really kind of like a roller coaster ride through fellowship in that, you really see so much of so many diverse pathologies and beyond that, we have so many different mechanisms. That are disposal aw with our interventional structural team with our heart failure transplant team. Personally, that was my big drought. Cedar Sinai is such a robust transplant program in all the different mechanical circulatory support that is employed in such an interdisciplinary way with the cardio three surgeons with the entire interdisciplinary team to really help these patients from A to Z in you're you're really trying to not only focus on their cardiac care, but really look at them globally as patients in developed longstanding relationships. So these patients because you're really seeing them through that whole process. In that makes the experience really special in gratifying. I agree with Roni completely like I also came to cedars because of just how much you get to see and you get to do I think there's one thing about reading and learning about pieces from the literature, but there's a whole nother. Learning. From really experiencing it and managing these types of cases and cedars has no shortage of different types of pathology and different levels of duty in terms of the patients that we see every day and a lot of that is as highlighted driven by some of our fantastic sub specialty programs. When terms of our interventional program, we do so many structural cases..

Cedar Sinai Smith Heart Institute associate director, Dr Sumi Chug, says the study compared the number of people who survive sudden cardiac arrest during the pandemic with a year ago they were in the ambulance scatting.

"Dr Thomas yada gaar ICU director Providence cedar Sinai a Tarzana Medical Center obviously this guy is no slouch he is worth listening to is a pulmonologist who says he has some important information to share with the public and doctors around the world welcome doctor how are you I will go and how are you doing good I appreciate you having the guts to come on and and and possibly say things that some people don't want people to hear it's weird to the situation that we're in right now how can you help us navigate well you know we've been treating patients for probably about six to seven weeks and the first few weeks it was mice our experience was the same as everywhere else where patients were coming in they were becoming very ill on the floor we really couldn't figure out why we have to put them on ventilators and before very long I just saw more and more patients in my intensive care unit and the thing that was very concerning was that one I didn't really understand what the process was that was causing them to get so sick and to work was really unusual was that it almost seems like every single patients had a different type of the disease process yes they had what we thought was pneumonia yes there on a ventilator but they weren't necessarily acting the same if I take if I can take you back to ten years ago when we had the H. one on one after that make you know adult time I may have had ten fifteen patients are on ventilators but I can go into each room and each of them had the same kind of pathophysiology maybe there are the different stages of the disease but essentially was the same disease which caused us to be able to predict what's going to happen in these types of patients that there's really no predictability to it everyone does something that's unique to themselves and that's what makes it so difficult to treat because you know you you have no idea what's going to happen the next day that's kind of scary is there another disease like this or another virus like this you know I've been a pulmonary critical care doctor for twenty years and I've been a medical director for over ten years and no I I have not seen this before and in my experience so I've been dealing with the rest of it would make it go ahead I've just been dealing with respiratory infections of all types of side viruses bacteria even fungal infections you know there's always some sort of predictability you know there's always some sort of a disease pattern once you recognize a pattern you can make a diagnosis and then you can predict what's going to happen and you could start a treatment plan which you know will hopefully help the patient and the subs of patience is it there really isn't any predictability so doesn't that make this harder to treat and when that say Jones go to work because we don't we don't have a handle on it I'm sorry I guess I mean I guess it depends on where you're coming from I I was it initially I trained in the nineteen nineties and medical school and my internship that was during the HIV pandemic in too many but many different factors this kind of reminds me of that you know there is a lot of fear and unfortunately that's what we kind of fed into as opposed to science and fact and logic and you know people don't want to necessarily go into their rooms and treat these patients and and see them which which I can understand you know that there are I've spoken to many doctors many nurses and some of them not so much for the fear of their own lives with some of them have spouses that are on you know that manta transplants or any mistrust of therapy and they're just concerned that you know not only can I die but I can take something back home to my loved ones and and and and hurt them and I was nothing unusual bottoming out at the same thought went through my head as well I think that's normal please help say okay but I'm a physician I'm a nurse on the healthcare board I'm trained for this I'm gonna do the best possible to protect myself and I'm gonna do everything possible to protect my family but I have I have to treat these patients someone has to treat these patients okay so you do you've just been asked to command revealed regionally across four more hospitals because you are performing way above you and your team above any of the hospitals in the Los Angeles area you haven't lost a single patient no one has had to go on a ventilator and you say that you have a protocol where you can find certain markers and you'll know who will crash and who won't well first of all I am not under normal circumstances there's twenty physicians that I supervise and we take care of patients to two different hospitals I'm usually on a daily basis we take care of a hundred two hundred twenty five patients about thirty or forty of them that are in intensive care unit I work both at Providence cedar Sinai Tarzana Medical Center as well as west hills Medical Center although I'm not speaking for any entity this is just my personal observation I just wanna make that clear okay yeah yeah but that's that's our normal are normal team that we normally take care of patients and you know initially what was happening was again you know patients were coming into the hospital they were getting sicker were facility we're putting him in the ICU and I I just thought okay I I don't understand what's happening so I started reading I started researching and one of the things I first came up with was that you know these patients are having what's called a cytokine storm syndrome and this is a very that's what happened and that happened in nineteen eighteen with pandemic as well did not I I believe so although I'm not sure about that you know we have the technology to really find out exactly what was happening on a more regular basis but syndrome what happens is that you know the patients that are get very very sick the immune system normally mounted or a response rights if you get a bacteria because of ours it activates your immune system and an immune system Courtney it's it's activity so that they can destroy the virus or bacteria but in a subset of patients the immune system kind of goes awry it doesn't act normally and immune system gets super ramped up and instead of attacking the virus it starts actually attacking the patient's own vital organs so when I started noticing was that you know what these patients that are going on a respirator these patients are what we thought was the virus was causing them on here no these patients are coming in and really suddenly becoming so sick it's actually their own immune system that was causing the problem not necessarily the virus now don't get me wrong this is a deadly virus and just like an influenza virus you can sure definitely because ammonia I can definitely cause respiratory failure if patients have emphysema or heart failure can definitely exacerbate those in need you know to them to get into the I see you for those diseases as well but this is doing something unique this is doing something that I really hadn't seen much in my twenty years where is activating the immune system and then now the immune system was causing all the destruction in the lungs not just the virus itself so in a way this sars Kobe to cause this kind of two different clinical diseases the first part of it is an infectious disease where the virus is a deadly virus and considers to do some harm but then the second and I think this is probably the more important part as it causes activation of the immune system and it doesn't because it in all the patients but it causes within the subset of the patients to get hospitalized and these are patients that we found were coming into ours I see the majority of patients when in our I see you and once we once we stop once I started noticing this I started looking for markers and these are many heart and how difficult it Hey how difficult is the fine the markers and can you be tested for that easily or yeah these are not any unusual markers actually a lot of the hospitals are checking the markers you know what the problem is that there's about six or seven different markers some of the markers are important to rule out other disorders like other infections or sepsis and those types of things and some of the markers are important to kind and let you know that this inflammatory issue is going on in these patients so you have to you have to look at every single patient individually and you have to go through this kind of exhaustive checklist one make sure that there isn't any other problem too then make sure that incident to check to see if they're having this inflammatory problem and then if they are then you have to kind of watch them very very court carefully and so if you're we noticed you if you're if you're having the inflammatory problem that's why I don't know if you're a believer in this or not but why hydroxy caloric win might work with some patients and not with others eight yeah it's it's it's possible using probably wasn't a strong enough anti inflammatory wasn't a strong enough to me as a person and a lot of research is there's a lot of articles that came out and you know said that at this point when I really using that for Max any of the Verizon anymore in the hydroxy Corcoran from system wide has been kind of on an as needed basis an individual case that where you can whether the patient needs it or not but the important thing was that you know when these patients how these inflammatory markers are elevated if you follow them very closely you saw that you know of a minority of them do you have this problem where the all of a sudden they rapidly you know get much worse and they go from leaving very little oxygen to needing to be integrated within a six to twelve hour process and this was exciting part where we can in in before getting to a point before didn't even though to be on a respirator we started treating them very aggressively with anti inflammatory medication with strong immune suppressive medications which is kind of counter intuitive right you think that the station is here to have a virus it's a deadly virus that killed what two hundred thousand people across the globe but now instead of treating the virus you're actually giving medicine to suppress the patient's immune system which is something that's really counter intuitive but that was what worked for these patients were able to now instead of putting those patients on a ventilator were able to give him the medicines act fast and early which is I think very very very important to detected early and treated early and then at that point you know we're able to prevent them from needing to go on a respirator and that's what really has changed everything around for both of our hospitals over the past month.

And so everything about this feels different and the momentum is they're actually making really good progress. I wanted to talk to you about the fact that you are a one man band with an assistant band member. Now. Not uncommon by the way, right about your engagement process because twenty-five projects which you're halfway done. You have to have a huge volunteer team working with you. How are you getting that done and give us a little bit of the secret sauce of that? If you don't mind, no sure, it's an again, every job I've ever had has been not to undermine it at all. But it's been sort of a standard cookie cutter experience worlds, I had again patient relations. And I ran a volunteer program and says I talked to my peers, I think that's where the numbers come from. Right to basically their teams are big because they're running all these other functions. Again, I appreciate being able to create this role in saying I don't wanna do that stuff yet. Right.

Not uncommon by the way, right about your engagement process because twenty-five projects which you're halfway done. You have to have a huge volunteer team working with you. How are you getting that done and give us a little bit of the secret sauce of that? If you don't mind, no sure, it's an again, every job I've ever had has been not to undermine it at all. But it's been sort of a standard cookie cutter experience worlds, I had again patient relations. And I ran a volunteer program and says I talked to my peers, I think that's where the numbers come from. Right to basically their teams are big because they're running all these other functions. Again, I appreciate being able to create this role in saying I don't wanna do that stuff yet. Right. Or if ever I really just want to help drive the strategy and the plan and help all these other departments that have been dying to get the work done..

"So were you defining the role? Did you help the recruiter defined the role or was it pretty well kind of organized before you stepped in and started the interviewing it's a great question. I would say, yes. And I think they I think in what I love about cedar on is very well known for a lot of things, but they're also not too full of pride to know what they don't know. And so even the recruiter said to me, he's like, listen, you know, helping these two or three executives full this role that a piece of it is you need to tell us what the role needs to look like that's right recruiter, by the way, smart Riveria it very smart recruiter, and then even on a personal level. I'll tell you I wouldn't have moved for just sort of. The same old thing. Right. I this was a big move for my family, but the excitement around sort of being able to define it. I think if I'd just been approached about another job, which you know, you're filling someone's shoes just left, and they know what they're doing. And just come in to keep it going that wasn't really exciting to me. So even when I came out to interview infect part of my application was had to write a little bit of an essay about what I expected my first sort of sixty to ninety days to look like. We'll have to talk about that. That'll be fun in minute. Yeah. Yeah. No. It's it's you know, I appreciated that. They wanted me to help them figure that out. And so yeah, I helped finish the job description help I would say a huge piece of my first year. Here has been to again, define what is patient experience in. What should we be doing? And more importantly, what should I be doing kinda success? Look like for this new experience officer. So it's been pretty cool. Let's dig into that a little bit. So that we really understand what you did deliberately in this first year. So where do you report in first of all Alan, give people context for cedar Sinai and its role in the healthcare or universe? Certainly so cedar Sinai based in Los Angeles, obviously sort of world renowned for many things, but most certainly for our clinical quality outstanding outstanding focused on nursing and physician engagement in very very. Steeped in tradition here in the Los Angeles community we were at teaching hospital and huge. So we are about nine hundred beds in our main hospital, in fact, largest hospitals standalone hospital west of the Mississippi. And so again, you know, it's it's known for a lot of things. We'll come back to the fact that you know, patient experience wasn't necessarily one of those. But the organization has tried very very hard for many years. They've landed themselves on sort of every US news and World Report top list and a lot of our physicians in an employee spend their time, traveling sort of promoting the clinical quality at place like cedar Sinai. Interestingly it has for the most part up until probably two years ago been just this one hospital located in the corner of Beverly Hills in West Hollywood. And yes Angeles. Yes. So very unique unique place a little bit of a misnomer. Right. Everybody thinks Vesa sort of the hospital to the stars. But not we're not for a few people. But on any given day, we have, you know, nine hundred patients in house, most of whom are, you know, your average patient, but really really sick acuity.

"And I'm glad I did it because when I came back into the customer experience world in healthcare, I could appreciate sort of the rest of what was going on across the system. And so for quite a few reasons move back to Atlanta had moved up to Washington DC for the advisory board. Yes. Spent about ten years with started at a smaller hospital inside the memory system. But but landed up for about a decade within the healthcare system, which is a very well-known academic healthcare center in Atlanta and loved it. Again, couldn't have been luckier found myself a boss who just took the time to get to know me. And appreciate me and understand me in and over the course of the seven years I worked for him helped me develop the patient experience. Programme the way that it went. But also really took a lot of time to make sure I was learning and growing and included in that became enrolling in my executive monsters program at Emory's business school again for sort of personal reasons to just push myself and learn more. And so, you know, before I knew it, I was seven years in Emory and had done some really cool things Iran the patient experience program for the ambulatory clinics, which was new. Yeah. It was new different for me. So I appreciate it sort of different perspective. But then over the course of time, you know, assumed a few more roles at uconn, our international health program, our special constituent program, the patient relations side of of complaints agreements management. And then actually really interesting piece of it was physician engagement, and sort of physician leadership development as well know again had a fantastic experience and absolutely loved Emory. And then graduated with my MBA in about a month later, the phone rang, and it was cedar Sinai and. Here. We are. It was just one of those once in a lifetime new new position at an incredible organization. Personally, we wanted to be out on the west coast at some point in a thought to myself, you know, this is what it's all about right to come to place like seaters that says well known as it is and to create a patient experience programme just was sort of an opportunity of last time. And so how was the role? How did you find out about the role recruiter? I'm cold me up. And and said, this is going to sound crazy because I'm calling you from literally across the country, but any interest in this and he sent me the job description completely out of nowhere. You know, what's interesting is that you were so focused. This is what I love when I hear we hear everybody story mean you knew you had early personal experience. And so health care was going to be the lane you're in. And when you started all of this this chief experience patient experience officer kind of role didn't exist..
