A highlight from Thomas Howard (Encore Continued)
"Did you ever hear the expression, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade? Well, when Eric Metaxas was little, he had his own lemonade stand. And he sold so much lemonade, he became rich beyond his wildest dreams. Now he's able to do whatever he wants, and he's now the host of a big -time radio show. Welcome the guy who's oh so lemony sweet, Eric Metaxas! I am right now going to air an interview I did with my friend Tom Howard about one of the best books I have ever read in my life. It's called Chance of the Dance. He wrote it, and this is my Socrates in the City conversation with the great Tom Howard at his home. Do not miss it. Welcome to another Socrates in the City event here at the home of Thomas Howard, the great author and, I'm happy to say, my dear friend. He has written many books. In part one of this Socrates in the City interview with him, we talked principally about his book, Chance of the Dance, which I could rave and rave about and typically do. hour, In this I want to talk to him about lots of other things. My conversations with him over the years have been so fascinating that I really just wanted to share some of that with my Socrates in the City audience so that you could also get a taste of Tom and of his mind and be intrigued to want to read his books. So we're here without a studio audience. You're the audience, and so hold your applause. But I do have to say that it means so much to me that Tom and his dear wife Loveless have led us into their home with all these cameras and microphones and things, but it's a privilege for me, and I hope you'll enjoy it nearly as much as I do, so stay tuned. Tom, let me start with this in the second part of our conversation. You know that I love you, and I can say that to you because you have an understanding of that word. My understanding of that word comes from things I've read by you and C .S. Lewis. But you know that I love you, and it's such a joy to be with you that, as I think I said before, I could almost talk to you about anything because I enjoy talking to you. That's mutual, I have to say. I hope that doesn't embarrass you too much. But I revel in you and your emails and your letters and things. And actually, maybe a good place to start would be, we were talking before about your relationship with Lewis, and I asked you whether you'd kept any of the correspondence with him, and you said you thought it was in the Wade Center at Wheaton College, and you were at least slightly incorrect because in the other room, I just happened to find a framed letter from C .S. Lewis to Tom Howard. I think you're the Tom Howard in the letter. Dear Mr. Howard, Maudlin College, Cambridge. Oh, Cambridge, this was in 1958. He said both. And when I read this to you earlier, you almost memorized it. I just can't believe, first of all, his handwriting. What the heck? Amazing. It's beautiful. Right? Legible. It's legible. Dear Mr. Howard, oh, but believe me, you are still only paddling in the glorious sea of Tolkien. Go in for the hobbit at once. Go on from the hobbit. Go on from the hobbit at once to the Lord of the Rings. Semicolon. Three volumes and nearly as long as the Bible, but not a word too long. Three volumes and nearly as long as the Bible and not a word too long, parentheses, except for the first chapter. Which is a botch. Which is a botch. Don't be put off by it. This is hilarious. Is this in Walter Hooper's volumes of his letter in there? I don't know. I mean, the idea that, it's just delicious, that Lewis is calling the first chapter of Lord of the Rings a botch. A botch. But he loves the rest of it as much as anything. Then he says, the hobbit is merely a fragment of his myth, detached and adapted for children. And losing much by the adaptation. And losing much by the adaptation. The Lord of the Rings is the real stuff. Thanks for all the nice things you say about my own little efforts. Little efforts. Yours sincerely, C .S. Lewis. This is, how much can I pay you for this? Would you take, would you take a, no? What do you say? That's, I mean, you, look, I neglected to say this in the first hour. You taught at Gordon College for a long time. So you were a professor at the college level for a long time. And maybe I assume people know that, but many wouldn't. You taught English literature. Did you teach Tolkien? The English syllabus, I had to follow it. And I'm not sure that I ever actually did formally get the section, which I would have loved. But isn't it because when you were teaching college, maybe they wouldn't have thought of Tolkien as being worthy yet of being part of the canon. Yeah, I'm not sure. Right? I mean, that's my guess. Maybe they even think of Lewis as being worthy of being part of the canon. Even in a Christian college like Gordon. But I think I could have made it worthy of the canon. I mean, I think they would have, you know, eaten up if you really unpack what the Lord of the Rings is all about. Well, okay, then what is the Lord of the Rings all about? Is this where I get to admit that I've not read it? Yes, but you can still get into heaven, possibly. I've read Chance of the Dance many times. Just by being Eric, yeah. So what is the fascinating, I mean, there are many people that rave and rave about Tolkien. And there are many people that are unaware of Tolkien. I've heard people rave about him. I feel like I know lots about him. I know that he was instrumental in leading C .S. Lewis to faith in Jesus, which is an outrageous and amazing thing. But what is it about Tolkien for you? Well, I think he does an almost incredible job, piece of work, by opening out for us deprived, benighted moderns. Opening out the world of myth, of saga, of the ancient glory of narrative. I think that's what, you know, his work is, I would suspect, is unique in the modern epoch. Yeah. I am struck, very struck, by reading this letter, the way Lewis writes about the Lord of the Rings. I confess that I wasn't aware of his admiration for it at that level. Yeah, yeah. What do you think it is about Tolkien that Lewis so loved and admired? I think it's a tribute to Tolkien's own capacity of soul to see and love magnificence, which one is drawn into in the saga of the Lord of the Rings. Do you remember when you read the so -called space trilogy, when you read those books? You mean Lewis's... Lewis's The Anselm and the Paralandra and That Hideous Strength? It must have been while I was still in school. I'm not sure whether I had gone on to college by that time. I was a slow starter. Yeah. I often think that Paralandra is maybe Lewis's best book. I've never heard anyone share my opinion, but I think that well of it. Well, I couldn't disagree with you. I mean, it's a terribly hard choice, you know. What's Lewis's best word? Right. Well, there are passages toward the end of Paralandra which are just flights of beautiful language like I've never read. I mean, people crave about Gabriel Garcia Marquez or, you know, I've never read anything better than some of the passages there. But even the idea behind Paralandra, I mean, I think of it as I assume you taught Milton over the years. Yes, yes. So I think of Paralandra as his response to Paradise Lost and it ought to be taught in classes. In tandem with that, yeah.

"Nathan Hager. Billionaire Ken Griffin says the setup for recession in the U.S. is unfolding. The founder of Citadel says the Federal Reserve is doing what it can to tame inflation, but he thinks raising interest rates has a limited impact on bringing price pressures down in an exclusive interview with Bloomberg's Philippe Marquez Griffin discussed inflation, the fed's rate hike path, and he even waited into politics. Let's bring you part of that conversation now. So he created space today to move by 50 basis points on the next hike. They'd come to this year pretty clearly telegraphing that 25 basis points was going to be the per meeting rate hike for the early part of the year. And then in some sense, taking the foot off the brake and seeing where the economy lands. And if you're just the fed, the interest rate tool as a means of controlling inflation, it's like a, it's like having surgery with a dull knife. It is a really difficult tool to get the job done with. Because you hit the housing sector, you hit the manufacturing sector, you hit parts of the economy that have a very high sensitivity to interest rates. And you tend to leave the rest of the economy relatively untouched. So the fed doesn't have as much impact with their tools you might hope. And although they've raised rates considerably, it's not clear how long the leg effects are for the impact. And once the impact starts to play out, how damaging that impact is. You're also one of the biggest political donations. In the country right now. And we interviewed JP pritzker Bloomberg recently. And he said, and I'm quoting here. He was willing to spend whatever it takes to keep Republicans, namely around the santas, out of The White House. Are you willing to spend whatever it takes to get him elected

"The financial system and everyone's learning about their financial decisions from their communities that's going to perpetuate exclusivity And so the number one thing that we can do right now as women working in crypto is to talk about the statistics and perpetuate education to our communities and our peers because I believe that for every single individual that I can convert into the space for the first time we can bring that knowledge back to our communities and make an exponential change on who gets to play in this space And beyond the people who are investing in crypto can you speak to the companies themselves when you look around at these giant investment firms that have really done well over the last 5 years do they have enough women at the top and are there skills that women should be presenting on the forefront to get themselves in those top roles at this time So Kirsten that you just had on was talking about increasing representation especially when you look at partners in VCs And I do think that having women in leadership positions will perpetuate more inclusivity in the crypto space over time And I think one thing that's really interesting about the crypto space that many people might not know is that you actually don't need crypto experience to move into the space What we're looking for is people with traditional experience to come in to block drive for example and bring their traditional experience into the space for the first time We will teach you about crypto And so I'm hoping that if there are women out there on the sidelines hoping to break into the space for the first time that they can see me hear me and hear we have a hundred jobs posted online There are many crypto companies out there hiring You should definitely look at making the jump How would you describe your own journey to the space and your experience rising up within this industry that by many accounts has been so male dominated even if it hopefully won't be so male dominated in the future I think my experience is definitely biased by the people around me And I think what's so important about making a jump in any industry is making sure that you're surrounded by a team that lifts you up And so I think what's so important in any interview process as you're looking at companies is in those conversations are you talking to people who can be your peer and who can propel you forward I think one thing that's really beautiful about the crypto industry is that because we're in the early stages there's so much innovation to be had And so my experience in traditional finance was sometimes that we were in a crowded room and there's a lot of sharp elbows to compete for new ideas In crypto everything's a new idea And so there's a lot more camaraderie and support in terms of being able to propel your own career forward faster Flori Marquez BlockFi cofounder along with our own chana Lisa Thank you both Coming up the NBA ESPN jumping into the metaverse or the metaverse We'll break down what works and what didn't.

"Hunter. It's like a radical responsibility. there's a big component of responsibility. That's really woven all throughout nbc. And you talks about taking you know taking responsibility for your own feelings and in a major way to right absolutely just as matt's example. It's not my mom my mom's fault. He had pain inside of him so taking taking responsibility. I won't work with my daughter. What do i need to do to get that connection. And not think that it's my my mom my mother-in-law's job to do it right now. Does that how you would. Yeah no absolutely Gone now i was gonna say i would translate that a lot like for parents can translate all that a lot into. It's not my child's job to make me happy. It's not my child's job to make me fulfilled. Its not my child's job to make me feel at ease at peace and grounded. Those are all the things. I am responsible for so that. And then i then i can show up fully like we come into parenting. We want that field good feeling of that. Love that loving but sometimes we end up inadvertently projecting this onto our child. Your own needs for feeling happy. Feeling relaxed feeling fulfilled all of those things. Yeah and it's empowering when you have that realization. I think you know when you can see all the choices all the strategies that are available to you. It's it's kind of liberating. I think when he finally reached that point. Yeah yeah there's like a freedom there and in a power which is really cool. You're kind of like step into your own power. So i would love for you to like kind of just describe what nbc process. Is you know the observe feeling identifying needs. Can you walk us through that to that met. Mostly we actually kind of caution ourselves in explaining this process because there's so much to the practice of it like it has to be practiced that that process observations feeling needs request. It's like when you're learning a new language you kind of learn textbook sayings right and you don't necessarily use those phrases in real life. You're you're learning them to practice So that you can understand the process and then you can kind of translate that into normal natural speak but if we are going to that kind of nuts and bolts of nbc It isn't a four stage process. Observations feeling needs request. The i miss observation. So if there's something that is is troubling you about what somebody is doing You can observe it without judgment. So if i come home and matt's clouds are all over the floor or something instead of saying matt when you're you're being such a a slob right. There's a judgment. They're to see that. I can tell you well. Yeah so that's like a harsh judgment and the thing that is like you know matt when i came home and i saw your clothes on the floor. There's whatever can be Videotaped you can see in a video camera. For instance it's an judgment free and takes practice by the way because a lot of times of things we say we think their judgment free and they're not so that takes practice and then so when i see i saw your clothes on the floor i felt and then you use a feeling word and back to what you're saying earlier hunter. We often confused emotions with things that come after the words i feel so sometimes you say i feel disrespected or i feel taken advantage of or i feel abandoned. They're all of these words that imply judgment that you've abandoned me. You're taking advantage of me. You're not respecting me. A feeling is an emotion arises and we actually have a list of these feelings on our website if you want to check it out. The happy wanderers club dot com. And it's emotions so for instance. When i c- i came home. And i started clothes on the floor. I felt really tired and frustrated And then the next step is need what need of yours wasn't met so we also have a list of needs On our website which really helps get down to these universal needs at every human being has so. You won't see things like money or fame or things like that on the needs because those are not universal needs those are Money is a strategy to get our needs met for maybe comfort or safety or whatever so that list has the list of the universal human needs so i may say when i come home and i i saw your clothes on the floor and i felt really tired and and sad and frustrated because i really need order ease when i come home from a long day at work so ordering ease needs on that list of let's observation feeling needs and then and then you can hear you know what comes up for you matt when you hear that. And then he can use nbc language to to share with him but he's feeling and then at the end of the request and the requests. Would you be willing. You know when you know that. I'm coming home. Would you be willing to take a quick look around the house and see if you can pick up anything before. I come home because i really would help me. Feel that ease and and order when i come home from work. And then the. The characteristic of a request is it's not a demand. You're not saying do it or else you're saying how does that sound to you and so matt can respond to say you know that's really hard for me because when you come home from work i'm really busy. And you can have a dialogue of of strategies that you can both agree on so that my need for order and ezer met and his need for order and easier matter. Whatever needs he has so those are the four steps observation. Feeling news request And they take a lot of practice. But but when you're able to do it hunter. I i really think. Nbc is like a superpower Because you can speak and communicate in a way that is so much easier for the other person to here and want to cooperate with you And and yeah. With enough practice it becomes like this easy way responding to people and and And yet becomes like a superpower in my mind and we would we're we created the happy wanderers club to talk about it About how we're exploring this in our lives but we're also going to be launching a course to help teach people these skills And so we invite anybody who would who wants to learn more to come to our website on it for our mailing list and so when you say like your clothes are all over the floor. You know i see all these clothes all over the floor. I'm feeling tired and frustrated with the beauty of that is that there's not a lot to argue with what because kind of what's the opposite of what we would say. Normally we would say i mean. Actually it's actually kind of hard sometimes for now to kind of think about like what is the opposite way you you know you're such a slob or this is you know or i mean. I don't know. I walk around etched myself a little bit. I'm sure little complaint myself. It's such a mess in here. All that stuff Now one of the things that You know can you. Can you give us like Kind of an example of this like.

My relationship doesn't have to meet every single one of my needs. I can figure out how to get my need for purpose. Met in other ways and so this emotional slavery. I don't know if that's what you meant hunter. When you said those words this idea that my partner has to meet all of my needs is at. It's not healthy. And i was able with nbc to understand.

Is there something you wish people knew that they don't know that maybe you could.

That was hijacked and these guys took charge. You know, they went on their plane and tried to help. They tried to do what they could to go home and make sure other people went home.

Whatever the situation was, this thing was the one big hole, tragic. Hmm. I'm wondering what it's like for you as a parent, Um Do you? I just wonder if maybe losing your mom at such a young age if it affected the way, you parent, your own kids. No, not at all because my mom gave me all the tools that I needed and the rest of my family. Like I said, from my aunties to my uncle's. I've had the best upbringing that anyone could ask for. It might not have been In a stable family home. Like you know this, your mom and your dad and just being upbringing, But I don't regret anything at all about my life or anything that has happened with me or my sisters.

"marquez" Discussed on Seek Outside Podcast
"As mark pender Marquez a interesting trip planned. He also has a passion for Kodiak island so why don't we go into How you develop your passion. Sure back in about nineteen ninety five ninety four. I really started wanting to do a hunting trip to alaska and my financial means at the time. Ruled out moose. Caribou any kind of guided hunt. So i started researching other options up there for. Do it yourself type trips. And got some good guidance from other hunters who hunt one hundred black bears and sitka black tail deer on their own. And i thought does sound like good option so i really keyed in on the block til dear. I love deer. Hunting and being two buddies did a trip in nineteen ninety-six. We were. It was our first trip. All three of our first trip to alaska and originally my planning started with southeast alaska. Because some of those places you can rent a car and drive out to hunt but through my research a lot of people started steering me toward kodiak island they said it's a wilder experience The deer hunting better. And it's a long season and whether you're hunting kodiak or southeast so you kind of pick your time when you want to hunt deer during the early season when you're spotting stalking bachelor groups of bucks at high elevation or during the rut when the bucks are roaming around chasing does of course there's whether trade offs depending on what time of year you go but basically that first trip. Three of us went. We killed a few dear with rifles on that trip. No success with the bose. We experienced winds and rains. Like i'd never seen that was a september trip and we were stuck in our tents for seventy two hours just able to get out and go to the bathroom basically. And that was my intro to alaska. And i swore i'd probably never go back to that spot again but a few years later. You've probably fast forward another four years. I did another trip with three other guys and we had a wonderful time killed some bucks head a little bit a bear problems where a brown bear destroyed our camp when we were out at night packing dear back in and then the time between then and now i've gone six different times to kodiak one time on a guided goat haunt and on that same hunt i. I spent a couple of days and did a solo deer hunt with my rifle and caught some salmon. That was a fun trip. But all my other trips have been to hunt sitka black tailed deer with my longbow or reeker. And yep so your very first time. You're bound for seventy two hours blowing sideways or whatever rain super hard you basically said. I'm never going back to this place. Again what change there was it. Was it that taipei fund. Like rennell has talked about the type font. It's not very fun when you're doing it but when you think back all the good old days be intent bound for seventy two hours you nailed it just like packing elk out of a canyon. You're doing it you're link. You're making deals with god. I'll never do this again as long as i live in by next season. You're ready to.

Big Tech and Right to Repair Laws
"Do we even start. I don't know how to start this. I ate the okay. I i want to bring something that like. Got me thinking about right to repair in the first place and then had me coming out and asking you. Are we ever going to do that right to repair video. And it was actually related to the boosted episodes. So if you guys haven't like heard the episode yet you should listen to it I did some follow up interviews after the boosted episode. And there these kids go to this college and they're trying to keep boosted boards working us. Oh i'm david and i am the founder of exeter general hospital and i fixed boards and they have these They basically called a boosted hospital where they have people that send in their boards and they fix them and they've worked with manufacturers in china to get these parts. They only made for boosted the company in. They're trying to keep them alive. And it turns out. They are really big right to repair. advocates imaginable. Brought up to me. I was like you know marquez. Did mention he wanted to do right to repair video Maybe this could kinda turn into something. So that's kind of what really got the wheels turning right so if you haven't seen first of all the boosted episode is great. It's a whole expiration of like the rise and fall of boosted boards. And how that. I mean had really high apex in a really low trough at the bottom. But it's a really good like overall story to follow but for me right repairs interesting. Because the more i looked into it especially for the day that we ended up making the more i ended up being on the side of like it seems really really difficult for for like any one final conclusion to work because there are two forces that are going to always be working against each other which is tech getting more and more well integrated and better and harder and harder to repair and then people wanting to be able to repair that stuff
Unlocking the Power of Data Lineage in Your Platform
"Hostess tobias macy into today interviewing julian ladonna about lineage new standard for structuring meta data to enable interoperability across the ecosystem of data management tools. So julian can you start by introducing yourself. Hello i'm jillian. I guess. I've been working in the big data space for the past. Fourteen years studied at yahoo building platform on top of you and in a study contributing to open source project like the and that's how i joined the twitter data platform team. They are steady up at she parkway project and that led to contributing to the launch of the aba chiro project that you're on and morrison t i with the architect for the up a format. We work after that. I studied dedicated. Which i'm this show now and so you've actually been on the show. This is your third time now. So you were on to talk about your work with apache parque. And you're on with doug cutting. Who was the creator of astro. So that was a good conversation. And then you're also on talk about your work with marquez. Which is a natural transition to where you are now with. Data can which building on top of that platform so for folks who listened to the marquez episode. I don't know if you want to. Just give a quick recap about where that project has gone. And maybe what you're building on top of it with data again before we dig into open lineage. So you can from. When you build data platform it quickly becomes evident that she need an equivalent of service oriented architecture retro data pipelines like people consume data they produce data and by default israel egypt visibility. Where they did is coming from awards going and so we need to understand. We consume the data that we produce and how they impacted by the changes were may be doing and we understand where they did is coming from that. We're consuming how it's being maintained in deadwood right so that leads us to start the marcus project at we were so you building the data platform at work. That where's the need for. How do we understand in an organization where they are many teams that consumed produce data. How do they understand how they depend on each other. In our things change. That was a missing piece in the open-source ecosystem
"marquez" Discussed on MMA Roasted
"Well, I think that's why I like manly dudes all day in the gym who are like. Hey, you gotta work on this joke my head on your boo. But I mean, it just seems like there's a ground guys that are like very athletic and I'm expense and every girl that I talked to they always say I don't I could never date a guy that I could beat up. Yeah, really the thing off. How are they going to know that, you know not going to go fight with random dudes in the street like oh you could beat me up. So they pretty much know the guys in the gym could beat them up a lot of them. So I feel like it's sort of way getting a good sample size. Now this other guy the fight that I want to see is Alexander Romanov This heavyweight who has insane wrestling and crazy jokes Bill. He did like a his last joke. He just basically just like strangled. The guy was like one out one arm wrist forearm choke cuz I was like strange it was like so simple it was impressive you ever like C, and yep. I got him want to see know who goes by El Guapo who hasn't lost since 2011. So this should be a good fight Marquez, you know anything about these guys. Yeah, actually I trained with Juan earlier earlier before the pandemic right after I got cleared we wrestled. So what actually was a I guess in Spain this like really on traditional style of wrestling and it's almost like flag wrestling but they'll send like five or six people after you and you have to offend off five people. Like if it's weird, you can't touch the ground at all if you get taken down it's over. So he like he has to throw these people. So what like bukaki wrestling or something that's crazy. It could be something like that but it's just it's very odd. I've never seen it but he was like a world champion and he was there with Michel Batista who was an Olympic wrestler one of the wrestlers that beat DC bath. In 2008 and they they were out there and I wrestled with them I trade with them to the guys grappling is unreal Bots scrambles are unreal. I like that matchup a lot. I actually got one that's been nosing that one. He's dude. He's a Savage. Most people don't really realize it but this guy can move for a heavyweight. Bots was one loss. He got knocked out of 9 seconds, which tells me number one. He's got clipped. It might have an early stoppage. You don't know like I have to see that fight cuz sometimes when they go, you know, sometimes when a guy gives that first Punch guy goes down the rep gets excited and stops it when the guy isn't as hurt as he probably could so, you know, maybe that was that was also ten years ago so long so yeah. Yeah, you gotta you gotta look at it. Like there's a lot that goes into it. But I mean you're at the heavyweight division like you can put money on everybody and you log Have a safe bet like the Curtis blaydes Derrick Lewis, you know Curtis blaydes was doing good. And all of a sudden Derek was caught him with a punch that took him out the same thing as by me again dead bolt broke up with dominating Derrick Lewis in like with the last couple of seconds. Just one hit man at all. That's all it takes. So I mean these both of these guys are Grapplers both teams are going to come after each other with a wrestling aspect and then we're just going to see who has a cardio and who has a better transition then hit man. I love that fight, you know how long it'll turn about either guy, but I've seen him probably like in and like you said heavyweights always interesting because it's I mean every every way class is a sudden death overtime the whole the whole time. That's why I explained the same price as bad on fights. Like it's the only sport was sudden death overtime the entire game like you don't just get a throw a flea-flicker and then if you if you get that passed for them games over or you know, it's not like a half bath. Sean bass was like yeah, if they make it from there at the games automatic over that so funny isn't especially at heavyweight. So when it's like talented guys and there's so many like good matchups, like now that the skill levels improving that there's interesting ones like this on a graphite. Well, listen, I I drink and took your guys time so much. I can't thank you guys enough Julia Marcus. How can people follow you should get on a j Marquez? Mme on Twitter Instagram Snapchat. Just hit me up there. I'm so happy to be mad because you've been $100 your whole life, dude, even on the contender off all they kept telling was how good that other guy was new trains with John Jones. He's the greatest fighter ever. He's a next big thing and you were like, nope, and you just knock that boot out and then it seems like the last song before the last fight you were losing and your corner was like trousers like if you don't fucking do this you're going to lose and then you just came out and did it say they have would you like your teammate 1 1 second left? I don't know if that's like your new sting off. Was loose the first two rounds and then come back with but you gotta get that fifty K. That's what we're fighting for. Right? Yeah. So I'm so happy for you and Hitman you meant to take the fight off a guy like a Jiu-Jitsu specialist with the most submissions ever in Bellator and beat him on a week notice man. You're you're a badass you seriously that choice bench press you tonight. So you guys celebrate at all. Did you can you at least handy with spit, you know Night by hey, I just woke up yesterday morning, whether that was like it, you know, I just got back and I've been right back in the gym. I'm trying to find next month. So, you know what? I mean, like people don't think I earned a spot to be in the top five that division we can fight about it. You know what I mean? So I'm ready to get back in there. So we're itching for a couple of fights there. Hopefully these dudes say yes, you know what? I mean? I don't think I don't know. We'll see if these are scared me over. They're not they they thought they were going to get a pick an easy little wage. And now they're I think they're concerned. So we'll see they want to get it people want to check it out. It's at Hitman Maurette on Instagram everything from there. Just kind of pulls out the Instagram.

Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock
"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.
The Truth About Needle Fear with Amy Baxter, Founder & CEO at Pain Care Labs
"Hey everybody saw marquez's here and welcome back to the outcomes rocket. Today i have the privilege of hosting dr. Amy baxter once again. If you haven't heard our podcast interviews with her one of my favorite guests that we've had on the show episode four twenty six or. She talks about the work that she's doing with her company biber cooled. The product is phenomenal buzzy. Another one episode for twenty six and also at the soda. Five twenty where she goes deep on covid nineteen and some of the things that we should be thinking about just a ton of really good content. Check those out if you haven't already. But she founded paintcare labs in two thousand six to eliminate unnecessary pain. She invented fiber cool. Vibrational cryotherapy for tendonitis and to decrease opioid use and her buzzy device as blocked needle pain for over thirty five million procedures. This is key and what we're going to talk about today around. Kovic vaccination after yale and emory medical school trained in pediatrics. Child abuse and emergency pediatrics. Federally funded for needle. Pain and fear opioid use and neuro modulation research. She publishes and lectures on needles. A needle fear sedation and pain. Scientific contributions include hypnotic enzyme algorithm to time child abuse creating and validating the barf nausea scale for kids with cancer identifying the cause of the needle phobia increase amd buzzy and cool. She spoken on ted man. She's done ted talks bottom line. She's phenomenal and we're gonna talk about some really great things today around cove nineteen needle fear and a lot of her research that he's actually doing and has done and is helping our nation with day with The vaccination so amy welcome back thaw and i feel so. Adhd listening to that list. Well you got a lot on your plate you. You're certainly always keep things interesting. And i appreciate you for that and the listeners. Appreciate you for that so talk to us a little bit about what you've got going on a you know we. We sort of got reconnected. With this topic of neil fear. So why don't you introduce your work. There and the relevance today sarah sure will you know for anybody who's here before the story thus far was that i invented a device that used mechanical vibration to block needle pain got a grant for it found founded. It also decreased other pain. Kinda did some work with needle. Fear needle pain and founded. Americans really didn't care that much. So that's why did the ted talks. That's why did the techs is to raise awareness of the fact that the way we are vaccinated kids causes adults to stay afraid of needles. But because i've got this company in this product i moved on to vibrate wall opioid stuff and all of a sudden needle. Pain is relevant again. Yeah well it is and It's a big deal today because we've got to vaccines available as of now. We've got one more coming with jay and more and more people are getting the vaccine. Many are not and so talk to us a little bit about your research love to hear more about it and how it is impacting people's willingness to get vaccinated sure. Well the go thing is that. I've actually been asked to testify or the art celts. New and services on needle. Fear and needle pain. It had never been an issue before enter. Probably wouldn't have been an issue if the strains of covid nineteen stayed the way they were if the are not if that transmissibility number was at two or even two point five we only would of needed sixty percent of the population to be vaccinated with the v. One one seven with the south african variants all of a sudden. Now you're talking about needing seventy percent seventy five percent of the relation to vaccinated the issue with that is it. Twenty percent of people said they're not getting a vaccine anyway know-how and this means that you need to start working on those people that may get one that not get the second one said. That's where all the sudden it became important to really look at needle. Fear needle dread fainting anxiety. Pain all these issues that may be enough of barrier to someone that they're not gonna get that second vaccine then they're only fifty percent covered or for the people who are gonna freak out and don't get the first vaccine not because they think there's conspiracy or not because they're afraid of the immune system in their body being co opted by space aliens lasers but because they just can't bring themselves to stand gang that

You've done some really neat things in your healthcare career and you know before we jump into the actual details of what we're gonna talk about. I love to hear more about you than and what what keeps you inspired in in your healthcare career. I think that being a background and being a nurse And washing with the front lines going for and doing on a daily basis especially in the face of i think every day i wake up. I'm inspired by those nurses to go out selflessly to transform and take care of individuals that most of I would wonder if we would cross that. Threshold and nursing was a second career choice for me in life and it was inspired because my mom really encouraged me to pursue nursing. Because she said that. Although there's a whole bunch of great leaders in other areas we needed really strong nursing leadership to sort of transform the future of the profession. And i took it very seriously after becoming immersed in watching certain challenges that was basically in the profession. I don't know if you know. Some of the statistics but percents of nursing graduates leave the bedside within two years of practice which is nearly the largest exodus of any profession out there and we are facing potential nursing shortage of vermillion nurses in the united states. And i think what motivates me is. How can we stop that accident. And how can we secure this profession at the future of healthcare And i think. I'm still motivated by both that here that there may not be nurses by the bedside in the future as much as i am inspired to transform. What a career for nursing. Looks like that me inspire the best to choose that profession debt. And you know. I wasn't aware that's a. That's a pretty big number of of nurses leaving and also want to say thanks to all the nurses listening or if you have somebody in your family your friends that are nurses at the front line. As as rebecca mentioned it's tough and especially during this pandemic The importance of what you do is critical so so yeah let's kick things off with a thank you and yes a rebecca. Why why so many people like white white is so many people eat nursing. Yeah there's there's some interesting study that are being collaborated on this entire thing. Why thirty to fifty percent of them are leaving the bedside within cheers of practice and my dad asked me this question. He that he the. Cfo honey when you graduated with your finance degree. Were you expecting to carry the same level of responsibility as cfo laughed and he instead. Of course not. And i said well welcomes the world of nursing where you graduate you enter the profession and not only. Are you carrying an incredible boat and patience upon you. But you're expected to carry the same kind of patient and responsibility as nurses with thirty or fifty years of experience. So i think one is incredible dichotomy of being put into a world. Where even if you have little training you're going to deal with those two patients. And then secondly i think one of the biggest factors is that the profession of nursing if you call it a profession has not been cultivated along a career progression and think younger nurses that are entering the profession realized. I don't know if you've noticed. But over course a twenty year career the average increase of salary of nurses only one point five percents a year which is half the cost of the increase in wages or salaries on the average american But more importantly there is no career development. So it's not as though when you start out as financial assistance and you progress ups eventual pointed the being the cfo and nursing. The first day of your career can very much look like the last day of your career thirty years later and i think that because healthcare has focused a very long time that the roles of nurses are to be by the bedside and that that job that has driven position is not in and of itself that they've never focused on. What are the career and the ambitions of the nurse by the bedside new ford so suddenly two years into a nurse his career. They're working in day night holiday weekend rotation they've had an increase of salary of about three percent and of them are patients that are constantly dying or sick and being called to work in and they don't know where their career is going in comparison to the friends that they have chosen other careers. Who are working monday through friday. Have five weeks of vacation and are steaming. The world where these nurses aren't sure what's going on. I think there's a couple downwards playing trends. But i think those are two of the largest.

Next Generation Patient Support, Fostering Community with Jeff Wandzura
"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saul marquez. Here today. I have the privilege of hosting mr jeff. One zero. he is the chief. Growth officer accusatio. Jeff is a pharmacist by trade digital health geek at heart and an angel investor in healthcare executive after two successful exits with his previous digital health ventures and a tenure as an executive at one of the largest specialty pharmacy infusion clinic an patients program networks he currently serves as the chief growth officer of curation networks excited to to host them today. He's gonna talk about how they're providing next generation patient support on their platform. Jeff such a pleasure to have you here for saw. Thanks for missile. I've been listened to your podcast for some time now to be included with some of the pioneers of the digital healthcare space. Thank you man. I appreciate that and you guys are doing some some fascinating work so before we dive into ratio and and how you guys are making a difference. Tell us a little bit more about you and and your healthcare journey what what keeps you in the game is. I was exposed to the healthcare space fairly early on in my journey has as we want a family pharmacy over the years and we're acutely time in pharmacy school at came to realize patient outcomes are less defined but yet saudi contraptions by healthcare professionals and more so by small ledges that drive incremental behavior change on a day-to-day basis so throughout that time again been involved in a number of digital health ventures kind of seen the platform and i guess the ecosystem evolve over time and announced Putting the rubber to the road and seeing how we can further catalyze this digital transformation within the space at is exciting and the opportunity to to provide value has never been greater. You know were becoming more consumer focus in healthcare at an. It's an exciting time as you. And i were connecting here before the podcast jobs talked to us a little bit about what you guys are up to jerry show and and how xactly you're adding value to the healthcare ecosystem yet. No it's a good question so maybe to kick things off one of the fundamental problems facing digital health platforms and healthcare more. Broadly is a consistent. Engagement and long taylor. Attention of the users. So those users representing patients family members caregivers to a number of different user roles and and other industries have leveraged social impure support in a very compelling way which has a high engagement and retention factor. So really the question is how can we responsibly. Blend these two in a way that makes sense for the healthcare setting and create a dedicated platform in which we can start to listeners regulatory in privacy compliant way and this is what's really inhibited. The growth and the trajectory of peer to peer support in these settings. So how can we start to again. Take into account the intricacies of the healthcare environment and drive that different types of a behavioral nudges along the way because when you saw that engagement retention challenge he had the best opportunity to drive behavior in positive behavior change on a day to day basis. So what we do at career show is create regulatory in privacy compliant pure pure networks and we'd go to mark with our customers so this represents the life sciences space to providers to payers to government agencies on how they can create customized brand in configure -able platforms that represent the brand and they're offering again to provide peer to peer support in a way that makes sense of the healthcare ecosystem. Really interesting. because i mean as we sit today it things are fragmented. There's you know been kind of like a gravitation toward facebook and facebook communities. Obviously all the issues with facebook that that we know of Proved that that's not really maybe not the best place to do this type of work. So so you guys are offering something with high security and opportunity to to collaborate securely so talk to us a little bit about how. You're making a difference. Yeah as a question so what we do and again just to go. Pats the pricing regulatory concerns. And you really just unpack a little bit. as to why that's been inhibitor. A blocker on for the full utilization from health rico system. And as you mentioned these. These groups are organically formed proliferating within these traditional social context. But all the stakeholders saying i have an inability connect with my patients and support them in a different way. Just give him the channel that we're drafting so when it comes to how we're making an impact again as it has three core levers that we're leveraging so one is matching pure appears in a very intelligent and analytic way so this is bringing in demographic clinical in psychographic information to say helping patients in the community who are going through similar challenges as you and our earth thesis. The more points of intersection overlap. You have an individual the more likely you are to form a long lasting relationship in bond that drives those daily disease management behaviors nonni habit hyg that higher attention factor with the peer to peer support. That's offered this is allowing us again to personalize the content and it sounds like a bit of a misnomer oxymoron but masked personalization. So how can you start. Meet patients where they are and we haven't hygiene factors the pure support the opens up new lever new opportunity to interact whether it be content programming interventions and as well as coming full circle on the types of health trackers that are applicable to that particular community disease state or the particular molecule or therapy that we're helping to support as a digital companion type of app so what patients are looking for is that anonymity tied to the condition so obviously personal health information comes with a number of complexities on how to maintain again full control over in having that type of buying from the patient community as well as from the pharmaceutical in life sciences sector doesn't okay does a number of hoops to jump through from pharmacovigilance or an adverse event reporting

Using AI on Healthcare Data to Improve Outcomes at Scale with Tashfeen Suleman
"Workum. Back to the outcomes rockets saw marquez. Here today i have the privilege of hosting the outstanding. Tush phen- suleiman. He is the chief executive officer at cloud medics health. They are a clinical a. I platform personalizing healthcare delivery through data. And a i. The company wants to allow patients and providers to better manage health using the state of the art technologies that integrate with existing hospital and pair networks to achieve the best outcome. Cosmetics offers tools to both patients and providers to system with their journeys and workflows. Tachyon's an approval technology leader and. I'm really excited to have him here on the podcast today to talk to us about the work that they're up to at cloud medics touchscreen. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks for having me absolutely so before we dive into cloud medics and the work. You guys are doing with a and healthcare. Tell us a little bit more about you. What got you into healthcare. And we'll keep you in it so as you mentioned. I have a technology background. And i have always intersected with being be across cross section being technology and building real world applications the can have a meaningful impact and so was about five or six years ago that We had a healthcare scare in our family. My father had a subdural hematoma which is a internal head bleed which went undiagnosed and it almost cost him his life but he fully recovered and we caught it on time and i was at microsoft at that time and that became our my value cried to try to figure out what happened and how we can avoid such events for thousands millions of people in the future that was what became the genesis of cloud. Medics which is look at data from different sources and do across sections analysis round different insights and Present those insights to providers and payers so they can improve efficiencies and reduce events such as the one that happened to my dad. And so that's the biggest inspiration of why we started the company but facile were now. I think everybody who works at the company has had a brush with healthcare Whether it was done personally or member or a friend that no and so you may have seen this your software you know. Healthcare is When everything works at works but when people fall through the cracks they technically have a heart fall. So that's our rallying cry to build tools that can forecast some of these events and Put in front of the best things that patients payers and providers can do in order to get ahead when they when they have such a healthcare scare. Yeah nets You said it right and there's so much that could happen and so many misses that can happen. We you know the. I forget what the number is. But it's pretty high the number of things that that could go wrong and reasons why outcomes don't work out within healthcare because of some of those misses and so i'm curious what exactly you guys are wanting to do here with cloud medics in the healthcare space. Tash being tell us a little bit more about it. Yeah so if you if you really look at healthcare from a macro perspectives. You have a provider who takes care of you. If you are sick you have a pair who Reimbursed says or bites insurance to the patient so they can have the best care and that works well for macroeconomics for a small population sets that have a one to one relationship in some s one to a few relationship of the provider and the patients. Where does it breaks down as when you have millions of patients and And the one one. Too many mapping come into place where you have limited number of providers and in number of hours that you can spend per patient in order to figure out what's What's what's the root cause of their ailments and so the us healthcare system has become very good at solving the current problem but not the underlying problem that the patients may be facing and as You know s. We are now entering a explosion of data where both medical literature and the complications that come out from the different co morbidity. Different diseases that patients have. It's very hard and complex to manage and so looking at that population level. Big data and large volume perspective is what claude. Medics is really good at where we pull. Data in from electric health records from a payer's and from patients and create a unified workflow where different stakeholders can slice and dice. The data for from different perspectives. So one of the ways to look at it is if you're a provider and you wanna get in information on operation risks or operation journeys you know because we have such a vast amount of data we can look at beijing of different touch points as they go to different sections of or different progression of the disease we could predict n began outlined the future off that patients may look like given a huge history of previous patients them in the past so we can look at retrospective data and project that feature in terms of allowing a provider to come up with a better treatment or a better outcome for the patient again. Were not looking to replaced physicians. We wanted to work in tandem with physicians.

We sold full some fake in once in the dark web alumni longtime will show many many people have been scam ride so Sides are fake sites offering for simple face mask. This is can that we leave during the beginning of this pandemic show is absolutely motivating to work from or in this summer security and trying to help these sector. I'm also the citizen right. Yeah and i totally agree. You know it's such a shame that people take advantage of this time to take advantage of of others in a time of crisis but the reality is it's happening and so you know it's important that we we think about ways to protect ourselves. Our organizations or businesses are patients are employees. It's critical so. I'd better talk to us a little bit. About what four. I q is doing to help against some of these things in the healthcare ecosystem.

Administration summa cum laude from washington and lee university and our mba from harvard. Business school. today. We're going to spend a good amount of time talking about this digital front door. And what practices and large-scale health systems could be doing to do a better job of addressing the current area that were in healthcare so Emily such a pleasure to have you here with us today. Great thank you. So i'm looking forward to the conversation. Yeah likewise likewise and so before we dive into rate health and what you guys are doing. Why don't you tell us a little bit more about you. And the things that inspire your work in healthcare. Sure i i would say for me personally. There's there's no debate about whether the health care system is broken and it's really not the patient care itself that's lacking it's it's the back end at the administrative side of healthcare. That's really this nightmare of complex regulations and poorly designed incentives and outdated technology all of which actually negatively impact the cost patient experience and ultimately in many cases the outcomes. You know. I never personally wanted to be a doctor. But i've long been passionate about exciting this side of healthcare trying to make the pipes in the information flow in this pieces work by should really does require reaching beyond just technology alone so this desire instead of my focus on sobbing. The complex administrative challenges can be non-sexist ahead of healthcare but that do impact patient cares. What has led me on my career paths and ultimately now terrific celts of it. Yeah you know. There's there's a ton that needs fixing and optimizing maybe even overhauling in some instances and so having a unique approach that is focused on on on making things better on the back. End of the house is key talked to us about health. What exactly are you guys doing. And how are you. Adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Are we are focused on transforming patient access so Helped mission our mission is to make it easier for patients to see their doctors. It sounds simple but it's much harder in practice on. You know you shouldn't have to know someone who knows someone to know someone to get a quick doctor's appointment and yet that's often how it works in reality today. Deferred care is a really big issue and the industry even setting aside the global pandemic and the dynamics that's created the average. Wait time for someone to see. A provider is almost three weeks in the us at the same time on any given day. Many providers actually have availability in their schedules. So a lot of what we're focused on is how do you bridge that gap and there's a significant amount of complexity underlying yet so it's really idea of improving access. Which is every part of health focused on is about much more than providing digital layer for consumers. That's absolutely part of it. It's also about addressing this underlying operational challenges within a healthcare practice. Your system does that make it hard to manage patient access in the first place so we do both from a market perspective at comes in the form of products around central scheduling work slap locations and self scheduling communication platforms in check in along with best practices for how to think about optimizing patient access in the clinic beyond the technology itself.
Digital Product Transformation for Healthcare Companies with Jonathon Hensley
"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saw marquez is here and today. I have the privilege of hosting the outstanding jonathan. Hensley he is the ceo of emerge interactive a digital product agency where he works with clients to transform. Businesses strategies user needs and new technologies into valuable products and services. He's an accomplished writer speaker. Jonathan has lectured on topics such as the connected consumers impact on business creating value through data driven experiences and user centric approaches to innovation in two thousand twelve. He was recognized in the portland business. Journal's forty under forty as wanna portland's emerging emerging professional and community leaders under jonathan stewardship emerge interactive has committed to a simple the loss affi the relationship between emerge and its clients should exist to create real and lasting value to change the conversation to move people to action to inspire and motivate a team to focus on what matters and we wanted to get jonathan on the podcast today to talk to us a little bit about what they're thinking about digital as we look to transform the way that we touch our communities our patients our customers through digital transformation. It's such a great time to have. Jonathan join us so jonathan. Just want to say big. Thanks to you for for making the time to be with us today. Well you so much for how we saw absolutely so before we dive into what. You're up to within healthcare You know and the work that you're your conducting there and thinking about what is it that that inspires your work in digital overall. Well i think what really inspires me about digital. How technology is fundamentally changing. The way that we live our lives day to day in the way that we work i had the opportunity to grow up in silicon valley and so i was surrounded by incredible people constantly. Innovating looking at how technology could permeate the way that we live and think about our daily lives interactivities and how we connect people and then seeing look how scaled out in really the foothold has taken businesses and innovation driving our economy and our conversations is just continued to inspire me in so over lost. Twenty two years. It's been the same motivation that's really driven and keeps me excited With this constant pace of change of how technology can continue to bring value to people dan. it's It's amazing right. I mean what we could do with whether a campaign to dry behavior or just you know how people access certain things technology can really help. And we've faced a lot of challenges through the covid pandemic and healthcare has really been more open than ever this type of change and this type of digital transformation. Why don't you talk to us a little bit about emerge and what exactly you guys are doing to help. Those of us in in healthcare. Yeah so one of the big areas of focus for merge is healthcare over the last fifteen years and we have really been working with organizations to not just embrace digital as a marketing tool or embraced it into how they can improve patient experience for support caregivers or support the relationship between patients and payers but really to come in in. How do we look at technology through the lens of empathy. How do we drive innovation. That can have sustainable. Long term impact and so a lot of our work is helping our clients wherever they sit in the healthcare spectrum to look at that empathy layer into really focus on digital as product a lot of time digital becomes this disposable thing where it becomes a tool and it is an essential tool but it needs to be managed out the product to drive continuous innovation and serve the providers and the patients that are out there and so i'll give a really quick example. Today's website for any hospital or care provider is essentially your front door in kobe. Just amplified that said okay. Well with a social distancing and being more where we need our websites to do a better job and i would argue that. Most websites are dramatically underperformed. Because they're being managed as websites that are more of information resources than they are as critical products. Meaning how do i help somebody. In an emergency navigate the services we can provide when they're in a state of distress burston being overwhelmed by how much information being presented. Or how do i help somebody or a family. Member find physician with network knowing their available understanding their expertise. And what does that look like provide end to end care. And that becomes very very complex as we all know when we start going from general practice into specialists and moving through the healthcare system.
Reduce No-shows, Fill the Schedule, and Improve Patient Experience with Michele Perry
"Back to the outcomes rockets. All marquez here. Today i have the privilege of having michelle. Perry on the podcast. She is. The ceo of relations has sast based patient centered. Engagement company that utilizes a modern and mobile first approach to improve patient and provider communication. Michelle perry has almost thirty years of experience in software and health technology an undergraduate degree from the wharton school at the university of pennsylvania and her nda from harvard business school. Just the the important topic around how we communicate patients effectively. And how do we do that at scale. It's going to be a great talk and michelle super excited to have you join us today. Thanks for having me excited to be here absolutely and and so before we dive into the awesome way. You guys engage patients at relations. Talk to us a little bit more about you. Michelle wu spires your work and healthcare the patient. You know really. This truly has to be about the patience to have been easier way to access healthcare This pandemic has shed light on. The fact that truth helped get a truly is about the patients. And that's why you know. I joined a company named relation relating to the patient and focusing on the patient. How do we make it easier for the patient because anything related to health care is high and so why don't we make it easy. Yeah and i think the nature of kind of how healthcare works and fortunately that it's complex And the need for that expertise of simplifying and getting a message to the right person at the right time is critical so michelle talked to us about how relations is adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Exactly what you just said you still my words saw. It's all about getting the right Right message to the right person at the right time. And you know the industry's been a little too focused on patient portals and just dumping information they're figuring out the patient would find the information and it's just not working you know we need to make it easier both for the practices and health systems to make it easy for their patients to access healthcare. And we need to do it in a way. That patients are use to communicate. Say and we all carry this phone You know there are a few people in the country maybe not for the most part people have a phone kind. You know in their pants pocket or in the hand of something all day. So how can we make it very easy using that mobile device to get them just that right information and not a data dump just the right information at the right time. Yeah and so there's a flow you know. There's there's a step by step process that kind of we go through when we get care. There's a scheduling. There's there's actually going to see the clinician where you wait. I guess there's a lot of waiting and cars now with with the pandemic reminders etc. So there's a lot of touch points that potentially league we could miss and so talked a little bit about what you feel makes relations special and different than what's there today. Yeah so you know. Unfortunately healthcare has so many rules and regulations Starting with that introducing some of this technology to be patient facing can be really non thing and then you add all all the communications laws which tcp a of the can spam and. This really seems way too. Risky move forward and health care. So that's where many practice of just put it in puerto new best enough but the adoption and usage of portals. It's just really low. So what we focused on is making it just easy to get the critical information at that point in time. Whether it's about an appointment to make sure that you know it and confirm it and we have best practices where we combine own email and chat messages over the course of five three one day to get the best response rate and to get people if they can't make it you know to cancel reschedule and get them back on the calendar that you can get waitlist filled spots that they laughed and moving all of that so really combining all these with one platform that can make this really productive for the practice which would make it productive for the practice can make it easy for their patients totally.

I just think that weakens the overall Writer of it so to speak well, because it's Dr is to live. It's Dr is not necessarily to kill us. It's to live and if it's easier to live if it's less lethal, because then we put up less of Ah, fight against it. Right. That's yeah, I think that's that's possible. Um, looking at the charts, by the way, since L. A county will not Widen. It's uh Vaccine. Reach here that they still had their rigid tears. Where's like Orange County is saying anybody 65 Plus can can get the vaccine shortly. 75% of the deaths are 65 plus. So if Barbara Ferrer knew what she was doing at the L. A county supervisors knew what they were doing, and they wanted to prevent more deaths they would ever have. Everybody 65 older get the vaccine and quickly. That's what they would do, but they're with their rigid bureaucracy. Be checking in with story in Orange County, with the big opening of the Disneyland vaccination side coming up after four o'clock more coming up on our show, Johnny can can find Deborah Marquez did. She's doing mine. You can't mind the news. It doesn't work that way. Are you doing just for the hearing impaired? He doesn't know. I don't know. She's her mouth is moving your arms away. Okay? Can you hear me now? Okay. I have the board in record. So like a minute, you realize that it doesn't doesn't do us any great area.
The Role of Consumer Payments Products in Healthcare with Greg Boulton
"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saul marquez's here. And today i have the privilege of hosting greg. Bolton he's a corporate development executive with experience in the financial technology industry who has spent the last ten years focused on payments and payments products in the healthcare space. We are going to be discussing the impact that the financial industry technology and products can have on improving healthcare delivery knowing all the challenges that exist in how we pay for healthcare. I think today's discussion with greg is going to be a really interesting one. And so with that I wanna i wanna give you a warm. Welcome to the podcast greg. Thanks so much for joining today Absolutely so you have been focused on basically how we pay for things in healthcare. Greg what has been your inspiration to spend the time that you have in the sector. sure So i came to the healthcare space from financial services industry specifically looking at payments products so credit cards data cards prepaid cards and in a lot of respects. The industries have a lot cinemax celebrities. They're obviously very critical industries and services they deliver a critical the lives of our members our customers and inherently complicated products plex but in many ways we sort of felt like the defense industry had maybe made faster inroads into bringing automation and customization to our products in the national services industries coming into healthcare really looking for opportunities to streamline and make participating in engaging in healthcare easier for the members so And that sort of dovetail with the health care industry really getting more deeply into consumer directed health care and focusing on the members decision making and the rule that plays in healthcare and so we really saw those industries coming being well aligned a lot of the financial products in the healthcare space. Not really been around that long. Very first tax advantaged accounts around healthcare. We're in the very late nineties. Really got going early two thousand so one of the things that we did early on was to try and attach a card to assam these tax advantaged products. And make it easier for administrators to move the money and also for the members understand what they're spending and make it reduced amount of paperwork in manual actions required for them to take advantage those tax advantaged accounts. It's interesting in your right there so much that has happened in finance that just sped past healthcare and in i had a. I had an interview several months ago with the chief medical our chief information officer at phillips and he came from citibank all the innovations that they were taking advantage at citibank. Now they're getting leveraged by phillips in that company and so there's a ton that we can learn from the financial industry and so talk to us a little bit about some of those things greg and And maybe how this particular approach can add value to what we're doing in healthcare. Well i think some of the things that we've been engaging with a lot of course as i mentioned automation and debts really almost entirely contingent on standardization through a lot of advantages services. Industry has had compared to health care. There's much higher level of standardization and the bodies that would create maintain both system rules as well as as the legal constructs behind all that allowed enforcement of rules. Were so much stronger in the financial services area than they've been in healthcare so in the initial services we've had visa and mastercard had nachon had a very prescriptive. A central planning operates nash services and that's allowed all of the companies to code robustly to bill very robust infrastructure around a data said and mediation standards. That didn't have a lot of variation in the healthcare space of course do have standards. But they're far looser and there's a lot more variation variation in healthcare plans and there's a lot more variation kind of diversity of approaches across the healthcare space. That makes it all much more difficult to approach but overall approach very much has been as we're going to try and create a consumer product built on a on a mountain of technology at complexity but trying shield that and make it seem as easy to consumers possible. Make that decision point. Essentially you know in the the member of the consumer is at at a point of sale. We want them to go to the wall. No which which carving out trying to keep it as simple as that and healthcare space

Tbi and i was on very extreme faction where it was all about how the brain was pricing pain signal. But it wasn't really paints were coming up from my spine. It was essentially corrupt. Data stream is very similar to what you get with phantom limb. Actually being told her in pain is being told your visits we had signal. That doesn't quite make sense. Say with me. I was very rainy.
