"Because once again, you never know what's going on with them. They may be feeling the exact same way. As you do, and we're afraid to express our feelings and emotions because of the fear of being judged, right? And after doing this long enough, you start carrying less what other people think and start worrying more about what you think and how you can implement self care to you. And for those people that are either starting out in this career in this occupation, is that you're going to have so many critics along the way with the main critic being yourself. You're going to be hardest on yourself and there's a couple of things I have to say to that. One is be kind and patient with yourself because you're going to have so many other people out there that's going to criticize you. And the other thing that I do is those who judge don't matter and those who matter don't judge. And it's one of those things that we're so sometimes afraid of other people's approval on the jobs that we do in the social optics of it all is that you know what really matters is how we feel about ourselves because we're going to do our job no matter what. Yeah, that is a very good point that you bring and that self care and that self love.

"No matter what, you're always facing the most horrific stuff. Plus the dangers. And that's the other thing. You go in, your life can be at risk at every given second. Whether it's the fire, whether it's sometimes shootings, it could be many things. You guys always in the line of fire, one way or the other. And we don't see that as much as just the regular public, you know, we just expect the service we expect that you're going to be there when it happens. The group that you mentioned that probably the least of people will think about was the dispatchers. But there were a few movies that actually I think one was Halle Berry was a great one. I think the coal or something. And there were many more where someone is calling in and these folks are really live with these people as they go through their whatever they go. That they have or the circumstances they're dealing with whether it's trafficking, whether it's murder activity shot, whatever. And things are happening, and these people are listening. I can just possibly not that I'm thinking about it here in you. My mind's like, wow, what would that if it were me right now? How would I react when I go home? Or like on the day, maybe numb yourself to it, I don't know what? Is there a formula to it? Obviously, there's none because it's just going to compound. And there's going to be a point of no return to a point where that's going to boil out. And it's just going to be like, oops, that's it. And then the outcomes are the worst ones. As you said, suicide, you know, maybe you go into drugs and other means to just compensate. So thank you for doing. I just wanted to add that comment there because again, as a normal non EMS person or not respond, first of all, I did not see that relationship.

"From Las Vegas, Nevada. He's one of Las Vegas finest firefighters, works with my brother, Kurt besi, and we're excited to have Michael here because the topic that he is talking about is just it really is one that is close to our heart, close to our mission. We are talking about mental health in a population that is such. An important part of our everyday existence without them. We would be in a heap load of trouble and yet we don't always protect them and they are in a situation that puts them at strain. So Michael is going to talk to us about it. And he's going to talk to us about how we can support them. And the special issues that they're dealing with. So whenever you see a firefighter or an emergency response person, give them some love. Michael or welcome to our show. Thank you very much, doctor Michelle, and hurricane. Thank you for having me on the show to discuss such a very important topic.

The Big Question That NO ONE Can Answer

"To dive into this Arizona attorney general's letter. I'll be honest, this letter is a lot more forceful than I would have anticipated it is from Mark berner and Jennifer Wright to Thomas liddy, the civil division chief from the Maricopa County attorney's office. And it goes into great detail one after the other asking some questions. And the biggest question that no one can answer, the question that is outstanding that no one can pinpoint is why is it that the machines were working perfectly fine on November 7th, everything was great and then on the morning of November 8th in Maricopa County. The machines just stopped working. Now for some of you that are watching online, you might not understand the significance of this. The significance of all of this is as follows. The way that Maricopa does its elections is that you show up and you check in and you can forfeit your mail in ballot because Arizona has a lot of mail in ballots. And then they print you a new ballot to actually go print to actually go vote in person. That's right. They have to vote, they have to print you a new ballot on site so you could vote in person. They printed out right there. Then they have to run the ballot through the machine after you have filled out that ballot. Now, according to the official line of Maricopa County, according to the official line of the largest county in Arizona, where 62% of all voters live in Maricopa County, according to them, it was just a toner issue. It was just a matter of getting the toner settings right. And by one or two in the afternoon they got it all figured out. Now, the machines and the printers have a network administrator that really the question is, who is this administrator then?

"Untouched wild and breathtakingly beautiful. But wild horses can also wreck the rangelands they roam. Government land manager say in the west, wild horses are competing with cattle and wildlife for increasingly scarce water and food, and their overpopulation often further strains the environment. So the federal bureau of land management regularly rounds up wild horses, mainly by using small helicopters to locate capture and truck them off to corrals or enclose pastures like this one. A horse can live for about 20 years, and most of these horses will remain here until they die. The wind river wild horse sanctuary outside lander Wyoming is run by Jess Alden, and his family. Talk about the horses that are here. For most of them, this is it, right? Yes, ma'am. We have the 225 long-term residents and long-term residents. Long-term residents like nursing homes. That's where I call them. I'm in part of our family and they're going to be here long term. And there they go. Yes, ma'am. The 1400 acre facility is on an Indian reservation.

It's a 640 acre compound of tidy buildings, manicured lawns, cattle, and enough hay to feed them. It may look like a dude ranch, but this is a state run minimum security prison with felons working the land and the horses. There are no towers or armed guards, a simple four foot cattle fence marks the perimeter between the prison and the town of riverton Wyoming. You know, Wyoming has a tendency to do things a little differently because we're smaller state and I think it's one of those things until you see it. You can't actually believe it yourself. The crew is Moffat has spent his entire career in corrections. He's the warden on the farm and about the only one here who doesn't wear cowboy boots to work. The thing that struck me when you drive up you see the four foot high cattle fans. Let's just stop and inmate for making a run for it or riding off into the sunset. Realistically himself. Most of these guys are at the end of their sentence. So most of them don't want to destroy that or catch another number. Do another 5 years or so. It's on them to make sure that they're going to do things the right way. Most inmates have earned the right to be here, transferred for good behavior from more restrictive state prisons, and each day about 30 inmates report to work in a maze of shoots and pens with wild horses weighing up to a thousand pounds. Their job is to transform these Mustangs from wild burdens of the state and riding horses. So the can fetch thousands at auction. These guys are here to do their time, but it's really about changing their life, put a change in them in a positive direction. Travis shipman is the cowboy in charge. He's the manager of the farm. Spent his life teaching the art of training horses. It shows an astride kinked by old fractures. Have you ever had a halt around this horse, mister succor? Never. And a voice both firm and calm as much for the inmates as the horses. Do the rope a dope and throw the rope into your hand. Do not get kicked. It takes time to train a wild horse, but schubert says there's nothing special about how it starts. You walk them in there, like you just kind of rip off the band aid and the human goes in there. Don't chase him. Wow. What's the next step? Let me teach him to yield the pressure, so you stop the forward movement. Teach them that if they move forward towards you, the pressure goes away. And then from there, you get to where you can touch them, you get to where you pet them, introduce a halt through, get them halter broke, and then you have that trust, like they understand if they give up their right of flight to stay with you. There's some trust there. Every time about the horses, the horses. Keep going, hey. We are in the people business and helping the horses is extra, but the guys really learn a lot of life lessons from the horses. They learn the try. They learn to not lie to themselves about their feelings. They learn to control whether it's the highest of high emotions or the lowest or low emotions. No one here breaks a horse, the method used at the farm is called gentling. Force is replaced by patience, persistence, and an even keel. In any pen on any date, you can see it play out. A ballet in dusty boots. A delicate dance of inches repeated a hundred times over, days in the making for this. The first human touch. Next door, a Mustang, and full gallop. A runaway train yields.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that hospitalization rates among children are now at their highest level since the start of the pandemic This occurs at the same time hospitals struggle with staff and equipment shortages because of the omicron surge We're joined now by doctor sadika kendi She is the division chief of pediatric emergency medicine at Boston medical center doctor Kennedy Thank you so much for being with us You're welcome What do you see at your hospital right now This surge has been unlike any that we've seen before and that the numbers are so much higher than we saw the numbers shoot up much more quickly than we have in previous surges and specifically in children I mean we are seeing a lot of children with COVID And this is on top of the usual respiratory viruses that we see during this season And how do you cope The best we can honestly you know I think all hospitals currently are just doing the best we can to ensure that we have the staffing to take care of patients but we're also seeing that staff are actually being infected with COVID And so that is an additional challenge in that it is causing staffing shortages on top of staffing shortages we already had from the previous surge And so you know we have gotten creative about how to make sure we're fully stabbed how to make sure we're still able to provide the care that we'd like to provide But it has definitely been challenging for hospitals all over the nation How old or for that matter how young are the patients you're seeing We've seen patients with COVID from newborn all the way up I think the challenge is that during this surge children are going to school children are around other people And with the highly contagious nature of the amaran variant we are just seeing the virus pass through children of all ages Many times we're seeing multiple siblings who have it when it's in the household And of course all of our children under 5 are unvaccinated And so that means that they are at highest risk both for contracting this variant and also for needing to be hospitalized and getting serious illness I don't have to tell you I'm sure doctor kendi earlier in the pandemic there was a lot of worry over multi system inflammatory syndrome in children Rare but of course extremely serious is this also over here with the omicron variant I think we're still in that phase where we're seeing many children with the acute symptoms And so we'll see I think in the coming weeks whether or not we're seeing higher cases of MIS-C as well I feel the need to ask you for practical advice with the ways in which hospitals and doctors offices and all medical facilities are just overworked right now One should apparent bring their child to a hospital My recommendation is always that when a parent is really worried that their child is ill they should seek care Now that level of care can be different depending on what's going on And I definitely think that especially given the crowding that we're seeing in pediatric emergency departments recently if your child is well and just needs a COVID test or is very mildly ill like this has congestion or had an exposure and needs a test the emergency department is definitely not the place to go to you know in that case I would recommend finding a testing site or a family has concerns seeing their pediatrician And I would really reserve the emergency department for those times when parents are concerned that the child is dehydrated or is not looking well It's not breathing comfortably It looks like they're having difficulty breathing Is that urinating So really specific concerns around whether or not their child is okay And the emergency department is always available for families I think all of us in pediatric emergency medicine proud ourselves and being available for families 24/7 when they need us But we also want to make sure that healthy people are not sitting in a crowded waiting room full of patients who potentially have COVID and we want to make sure we can provide timely care for those patients who truly are ill Doctor candy what kind of help can you get from local governments the federal government public health officials or for that matter families now In terms of help from families specifically I think it's each person doing their part by masking by getting vaccinated if they have not yet been vaccinated getting boosted if they haven't been boosted Realizing that all of our kids under 5 currently are unvaccinated and the only way to protect them is to make sure that everyone around them is doing the best for protection and that's masking and getting vaccinated and distancing I think in terms of government I really would love to see more mandates for vaccines and more mandates for mass as well And then also just testing availability and no I've seen many families in the emergency department who end up there because they could not find a place to get their children tested and they couldn't find a rapid test And I think that's a large challenge You know we can tell families not to come to the emergency department for testing but if we don't give them other options that are easily accessible then many times that's where families end up Doctor sadika candy whose division chief of the pediatric emergency medicine service at Boston medical center thanks so much Good luck Thanks so much Scott Not a Venezuela where a deep economic crisis has made every facet of life more difficult Take the everyday act of just preparing a meal Normally most Venezuelans use propane stoves and ovens but a shortage of cooking gas has led many of them to resort to wood fires Reporter John Otis has more Rosemary matute is blowing on an outdoor wood fire trying to keep the flames alive That's crucial because she's cooking huge parts of rice and beans that will be fed to teachers at a school here in the western city of barquisimeto Cooking with fire she admits is complicated You have to be really careful with the wood and the embers So the rice gets cooked but not burned she says Matute has a lot of practice She and the other cooks here have been preparing school lunches over wood fires for the past three years It's the same story across much of Venezuela Normally 90% of the population cooks with propane stoves But there's a severe propane shortage Some families have electric stoves but they're not much good during the country's frequent power outages So many have fallen back on the ancient technology of fire Ironically Venezuela sits atop massive reserves of oil and natural gas which are used to make propane But government mismanagement has led to a collapse in production When all productions are to decline natural gas also starts to decline That's Caracas energy consultant and to make up for the shortfall he says Venezuela initially planned to import propane but the country's worst economic crisis in history has left the

"So than ever any time in history but what happens is the hell clermont isn't necessarily set up to promote those good. How'd you practices. So the clinicians get busy. They're focusing on their patients. They're trying to take care of everything else. They've got sixty thousand bucks to click on a computer to get through the day and it just get busy in there forget and that was are going back to the engineering and medicine disconnect that was her critical observation that we made years ago is that healthcare workers are hard-working passionate very well educated. They just need a reminder and so that's kind of where we came in in our first technology our very first prototype bigly box. It had a blinking light off and we took it to our partners at children's healthcare of atlanta at the time in the division chief for barely remember this moment describing it to her showing it to her everybody's excited and she said no beeps when you talk about. It's great expensive. It works well. It's great engineering. Perspective said no more weeks. I have so many beeps in my icu. Every 'em it's preventative. And when we rewind fifteen years ago that was before there's a pretty well documented phenomenon called arm fatigue now totally but what schumer's describing is that everything in the icu. Beats and gong whistles and because there's so many of them they just ignore them but later has a very specific one and she has learned over the years that a fat one gets ignored. Something really bad is going to happen totally in this case to a child but she was absolutely spot on so we went back on rhythm tail between our legs and scratched their head a little bit and came back with a voice she said you know given a shot in so so it was instead of a beep it was. Hey why said please. We're in the south so our very first one. It was my my niece at the time. Was i think. Four or five In their hand hygiene slogan was foam up so he said please foam up so adept. At any time somebody would walk into the out of the rooms in forget the poor it was gentle reminder saying please do whatever we want to do and honestly that was a case of better being lucky than good but that simple voice reminder is has been the single biggest driver of reducing unchanging. Changing those game. Chris so so the voice happens so it happens audibly so that even everybody around could here so it becomes like a social pressure now that was a component. That wasn't a slow by design church. So when so when you if say a doctor was to enter a patient's room and they forgot to perform hand hygiene right at that moment that they're a basically about to forget about to walk over touch the patient. It's a very quiet schneider and everybody is Surprised how quiet it actually is for it to work. So it's very very quiet in so it's a it's the point. Where if a patient is awake and aware. What's going on. They were here it. But we're not gonna wake him up at night we're not going to disrupt them. We made a mistake early on to waking up a sleeping baby in that pediatric icu. And we may never do that again cowboy And so it's very very quiet and so you're right in it doesn't necessarily create an overt pressure. Put i've actually watched this happen. What happens when a voice goes off. The patient just makes eye contact with the coalition and everybody kind of knows why that happened and they don't have to speak up. They don't have to say anything usually used to. I contact enough to kind of redirect that clinician to perform hind fascinating. Chris and so how does this thing. The knox know that it hasn't happened like the handwashing has not happened. So we put sensors throughout all the patient carrier is and specifically they go on all of the soap dispensers in all the alcohol based hand sanitizers and the way the technology works. There's one main center that's associated with the rumors usually inside. It's almost always inside the and when somebody watched by it knows that detects somebody walked by then looks to see who that person is. We give all the healthcare providers a little badge. Real that sends a wireless signal to help identify. Who that person is. That was my next question. Okay gotcha catch. All the sensors talk to each other and this is the magic. It's under the hood. Is we lance. Say all right. I just saw dr. Chris walk into the room all those centers than talk to each other and say. Hey good i see him. Clean any of those dispensers. If the answer's yes away he goes there's no disruption whatsoever. Normal time you know in this is reality is most of the time coalitions forget then they make decision hey hers that bush reminder remind them and they'll get a chance the second chance to come back. Clean your hands. And then all of that data those sensors generate is sent to our analytics platform to be analyzed to be sliced index to be then set back out to the hospital so they can help identify and address any of the challenges. That may remain. Wow that's amazing. So i mean you've got this down to a science and in you know the those nudges to help clinicians do the right thing and i mean it's like airport right. Everybody is busy and the surgeon is thinking about the plan. They want the best thing. You're in it. Maybe it's a tough case. So you're just like focused right you on the right thing and you you my forget how that basic thing done and so and so. I've never heard of anything like this out there And i think it's really neat. You know. I guess you know talk to us a little bit about the the outcomes you know. How are you guys making things better. yeah For us the the main bread and butter of what we do is pretty simple. It's when we can come in. In most organizations we can double or triple. Their hand heightened rates Within about six months and we have identified a very systematic way to go through that process and we lead them on a very Specific call it the hand hygiene pathway. In doing so we can systematically very efficiently improved hand hygiene and then we see infections fall. And so we're very proud of the fact that we've had eighteen consecutive hospitals over the last year and a half when you look at them individually all of them saw a statistically significant reduction infections within six months of implementing our system and that average infection when you look across all of those hospitals is over sixty five percent now which is in the grand scheme of things of hei actions it's a homerun. Most hospitals were maybe five or ten percent a year And we can come in within a very short period of time and demonstrate sixty five percent reduction infections and then also more importantly despite all the complexities that go into causing these infections we have dated a show that we can reduce every single type of healthcare session infection. That's pretty impressive. And the numbers speak for themselves. Sixty five percent reduction is a big deal. And when you're talking about lives and dollars it's it's impactful i was looking at your site And chris i mean seventy five thousand deaths per year thirty billion and costs yes and when you look at the especially with all of the financial pressures that kogas putting on hospitals lease are the dollar or hidden kind of tucked away in wash reimbursements but the average hospital bed spends ten thousand dollars a year just on the direct cost of these infections and we can very competently. So you know we can those numbers at half and we have done that in and century developed this structure pathway. We've done that. In every case in so in many cases we can take hospitals from losing money every year to being profitable. It's not uncommon for us to say Especially larger organizations five ten million dollars per year or more. There's also some of your listeners. Probably aware the healthcare associated complications listed a hack list which further penalizes hospitals with the highest rates of complications. And the way that those have shifted over the years is there dairy very heavily weighted to infections and were very proud of the fact that any of the hospitals that we had that were on the hack list before using our technology are now off of that list in that saves That's a it's one percent of their total medicare revenue. And so that's when you have hospitals that operate on a one to three. Maybe four percent profit margin. That's a huge swing for many organizations in terms of revenue in terms of profitability. Totally the numbers speak for themselves. And and so as you reflect.

They call it these Silverado fire it's in eastern Orange County and the area affected the most or some neighborhoods. In Irvine. They have had difficulty because of the winds using air support to help contain this fire. Burning out near Yorba Linda. But the tough news we got a couple of hours ago with regards to the Orange County fire near Irvine is at a COUPLA, firefighters were severely burned covering this for Kfi news is Corbin Carson with the latest on what's going on in Orange County forbidden from the looks on television the wind is still blowing very strongly. Yeah it picks up an in. It drops off I'm still over here at the O C Global Medical Center where those firefighters were were were abroad. But yes, as you mentioned all throughout the day, we have seen these really strong winds is knocking stuff all over the streets kicking down a flagpoles and you know campaign signs you name it it's just it's mates from for some really tough conditions in and as we've just heard that the Fire that started in Santiago Canyon. This morning is now to seventy, two hundred acres, and then the fire that I'm about to be headed to. Now that over near your Yorba Linda has grown to over a thousand acres. We're hearing that there's a possibly one structure burned. So I'm going to check that out right now, and we just recently also heard all the new evacuations for the area we got that update from division chief Shane sure would. Mandatory evacuation orders here in the city of Irvine, their impacting approximately ninety thousand, eight hundred residents. So all residents north of Irvine Boulevard from Jamboree to Bake Parkway. As well as from Irvine, boulevard south to Bianca, road from Jeffrey Road East to patrol high high school all under mandatory evacuations. Also the communities in the city of lake forest, Baker ranch and Foothill ranch are also under mandatory evacuations. So as you just heard ninety thousand people more than ninety, nine, thousand people affected by these new orders. So a lot of people being asked to move those people around those areas that are not specifically affected they are being told stay ready in case. The wind shifts or they are told some at some point to move and that people can check with their local areas too as to where to get the latest updates and make sure that they're ready to go if needed. But earlier as you also mentioned, we had a couple of firefighters this afternoon that were out there they were they were on the hand crews and one was twenty, six years old one was thirty one years old the the the hankers part of their. Clearing the line and making sure they're trying to get some kind of containment on these fires as they're moving as fast as they can, and unfortunately we heard from OC fire authority Brian Fantasy that two of them were severely burned. This afternoon here is him making bringing this tough news to US earlier one of the hardest things? Any fire chief can do is is to report. Out on one. One of the firefighter family members have been injured or. Or worse. This is. A tough for me. Tougher all my firefighters. And certainly for the families of my two injured firefighters. One of them, a twenty, six year old and one of them at thirty one year old. One has sixty five percent burns both second and third degree. The second has fifty percent. Both second and third degree burns, and so what we're hearing is currently the families are here with them at the OC global, medical center that both have been intimated and aren't able to speak and they are in critical condition.

How to Become a Change Agent in Your Health System with Tony Manuel

"Welcome back to the outcomes, rockets, Sal Marquez is here today I have the privilege of hosting Dr Tony Manual Dr Tony. Manual is a practicing anesthesiologist and Austin Texas. He's a partner with the United States anesthesia partners central Texas and has been in practice since two thousand two. He's an assistant professor. In the Department of surgery and Peri, operative care at Bell Medical School Dr Manual received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt attended the University of Texas Health Science Center for medical. School, completed his residency in anesthesia at the University of North Carolina or Or. He was recognized as the outstanding resident and fellow cardiovascular anesthesia at Duke, university in two thousand seventeen. He received his masters in medical management degree from Carnegie Mellon University and today he's playing. Multiple Roles as as he has in in his career and today we're going to be talking about physician innovation, and in particular how physicians can evolve their career to be greater contributors beyond the point of care and so. I WanNa thank you Tony for joining me today to have this very interesting discussion with you saw thanks so much great. Great to be owner podcasts, and I WANNA. Thank you for actually doing this podcast. Because for a lot of people like myself, it's been a great conduit to learn about what other people are doing, and what best practices that are out there, and it's an alternative to sort of the Journal Review articles that we have historically read and I've actually looked up several companies that you've had on and engaged with them. Really appreciate what you're doing I. Love that man now. That's great. I'm glad to hear that you've done that. That's the intention. Intention and so I appreciate you for doing that, so you know we are having a discussion. Folks Tony and I connected and said you know what the role of the physician is changing, and and so what I wanNA. Do today is just highlight how that's changing through the life of Dr Manual here and so you know I love for you Tony at to just kind of walk us through some of the work that you're doing and how it's changed from just practicing to actually doing more You know as we engage this. You know three five trillion dollar industry that call healthcare. Yeah, it's it's been an interesting journey for me and you know have to credit one of my anesthesia attending when I was in residency, his name's Dave mayor said Gimme, grapevine goes Tony You have to continually strives to maximize your career and Let's see well. What does that mean well? You definitely want to start trying to be the best clinician you can be once. You achieve that you should really look at you. Know becoming really strong in other areas, and I always took that to heart in so I think back to when I first started here in Austin I became the division chief of cardiovascular. Cardiovascular Anesthesia Rochester, saying I helped create division of cardiovascular. Because at that time we were Basically, everybody was doing it, and I fell coming out of myself. This'll be really better if we limited number of people at work in that space and you know put together some protocols and got the team together, and we saw some really good outcomes from that work and I fast forward to what I'm doing today, and that work has changed so much partly because I think every clinician you have to get educated, and I use a rudimentary tools back then, but in after getting that masters degree from Carnegie Mellon I really developed at toolkit that allows me to take on. On much more complex problems that we face and healthcare today. Yeah, that's so interesting, and so you have that entrepreneurial bug from the beginning right so you kind of re retooled the way that you guys approached cardiovascular anesthesia and I'm sure with with much improvements and outcomes, but then you've taken other steps to. You've been involved in startups, and now you're doing different roles. Can you talk to us a little bit more about that? Yeah I worked my way of the medical staff leadership and ultimately became the president of medical staffing while that was a great experience after I graduated with my master's degree. The entrepreneur apart really was intriguing to me. In more important is the. The interface between the clinicians in technology and so The startup is called Dynamic Lights based here in Austin, and it's actually technology out of the University of Texas and They had great idea concept. Basically, it's how to noninvasive map blood flow during Sri will hand you an aneurysm surgery and uses what's called speckled laser technology and I was like honestly Craig. It's continuous. It's noninvasive, but they never really thought about the interaction. How you get it. It's dockers hands. How do you test it? And that was sort of my strength and so I, said well. Let's work together and figure this out and to date. You know we've incorporated. We're FDA approved, and we're. Ducking clinical trial and we're looking to partner with a couple of larger health tech firms,

Meet Emma, The Immigration Chatbot

"Our guest today. Is Courtney wind chip who the division chief of the Digital Services Division at the office of Citizenship and applicant information services under the US citizen and immigration services. USCIS hike Ernie. Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast today. Thanks for having me. Yeah welcome Courtney and thanks for joining us. Today we'd like to start by having you introduce as yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at US CIS. Sure happy to do so. So as you mentioned. My Name's Courtney I'm with. US citizenship immigration services that we oversee the lawful immigration and naturalization in to the United States so this includes any family employment or Humanitarian Ryan benefits that an individual may apply for in order to enter remain in the United States. My current role is as a digital services division cheap and we we oversee all of the public visual tools that we have which includes very USCIS website English and Spanish as well as websites. Thanks for citizenship. Resources as well as they are five and we are awesome building out account services. This is an area of the web that is cure that it allows for online transactions and other support services that allow individuals to self service and provides a bit more precise information. So that's my permanent role. I am in an acting role as well where I oversee. Data Management in our office of chief data offers great. Well I know one of the reasons why we're having you on this podcasts. Of course because we're focused on artificial intelligence and one of the patterns that we talk a lot about is one of those seven patterns of a I is this conversational pattern and the US deployed employed. Recently one of the most widely used chat bots in the federal government called. Ask Emma and I know that website is very highly heavily traffic traffic website and of course also feels a lot of phone calls. People are definitely very enthusiastic about contact regarding immigration immigration status lettuce so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with? Ask Emma and what you're doing on the chat bots. Can you tell us a little bit about that and how that came to be yeah. Emma started in December number twenty fifteen and is the first interactive virtual assistant to date. She has successfully responded to more than thirty five million inquiries for more than eleven million users. So we're very very excited about that. And she has a success rate of about ninety three percent in English and ninety percent in Spanish so she has become a very useful tool for many of our applicants and the general public. I give you a sense of her usage versus some of the other things things we receive about fourteen million calls from and all of our digital tools. Together you have about twenty five billion sessions for months so you can see. She is a highly traffic pool that we rely on very heavily and she has grown and expanded her knowledge over the years. So right now she has an. I don't know right that hovers between eight to ten percent English. And we're hoping to get that down even lower over coming years. And as we continue to train her and we also see her as a great tool to collaborate with our external stakeholders as well as internal stakeholders so initially she a trained with our adjudicators our case managers review cases and our contact center staff over time. We had her trained also with the public and now she has a ton of information and then in more recent years we've also integrated her with live chat services so she's continuing to the pills than where she doesn't have goals. We are now able ambition to from live help services. Yes that's a lot of inquiries every month when you said those numbers I was like. Oh my Guinness so I can see how a chap can be very useful and now that you've had 'em for a few years. I'm sure that there's a lot that you've learned and as you said you continue continued to improve and try and get her. I don't know right up. So for other agencies that are looking to deploy chat bots and industry as well for that matter. What lessons have you learned both good and bad from this experience that you can share with our listeners so we obviously learned many many lessons along the way you know? Some of the lessons that I think are important than have have been really key for us are clever. Aiding and Co creating from the outset so working as I mentioned with our internal and external stakeholders the really develop develop tour of that is all and also has allowed us to think about ways in which we can leverage technology as best we can so five years ago how we were using chat bots is very different and the investments. We're making this very different than than some of the technology available now so I think allowing us to find a lot of the tools that are available right now row for better automation and content management. And that's something that we have struggled with over the years and I would recommend the folks that if they can consider that and consider how also how transferable it'll may be based on the technologies they're trying not to lock into length solution Shen but really be able to use a variety of solutions meet their needs and also how that could integrate with other efforts that they have that they've prioritized of the years. Yeah look at Chat bots and conversational systems of all sorts kinds that are built until websites but also texting and messaging and even now the new voice assistance on Alexa and Siri Google home and all those places in Cortana and they may be thinking about the return on investment. Right a lot of folks like well. Why would use the Chat Bot well hopefully to reduce call volume maybe to improve customer support and service maybe to respond to requests? When you're not usually open right the the offices are closed and I think you know there's lots of different ways of thinking about an inmate? It'd be interesting to share from your perspective. You know where and how you know the Chat Bot in specific and maybe more generals barrels having a big impact on the way that you're serving customers and just both in terms like where are you seeing the return on investment now but also looking towards the future are you looking at its future. Roi and maybe ways that you're looking to expand the use of chat bots and AI. In general in the next few years got excellent questions. I think our biggest a school has been how to create more space for our case workers to focus on complex immigration issues news and reviews rather than some of the more basic questions like K.. Status or processing time but we receive on a day-to-day basis so allow Emma and other tools to provide that information to the public and ideally get them. It's timely accurate information as quickly as possible on their timeframe right as opposed to having to rely on when contact centers opened lower case workers to focus on the more complex cases and where needed having to have the in person interaction. So I think that's where we've seen value. I mean it's something I will say is a phrase. We thought Emma would produce call volume. We find that and I think one of the things that we are looking. We've been carefully examining over the last couple of years but particularly I I was saying last six to twelve months is how'd we most effectively use the channels that we have available to the public for inquiries are customer. I'm Craig Channel and that we may in fact start to make some really tough decisions about what channels are available for. What purpose and really start to nudge? The people into certain types of tools or resources so that they can get the best information that we have available and allow again our team. Focus on the case Orca. Though you know it's interesting that you said that Emma didn't actually reduce the call volume. I guess people use her as first line of Defense and ask her certain questions but then at the end of the day maybe they still want that human interaction so have you found that it's reduced call volumes for certain types of questions or is that a goal that you're looking to the have in the coming years that's a goal. We are looking to have in the coming year so right now. She provides some basic information about K status and processing assessing times in particular which are the areas. We get the most inquiries about gloves things like changing your address. But I think what we're trying to do is use a similar functionality. optionality that Emma has used that in a more secure environment authenticated environment
