Soaring home prices and record low interest rates have many renters wondering if they should buy their first home This morning. We offer a couple of different perspectives from two housing experts. The first From Laurie Goodman Ah, housing expert with the Urban Institute, who says it's smart for renters to become homeowners to lock in a steady price for housing. In short, she says, Ah, home mortgage remains constant. While rent can continue to rise. Here's what she told The Wall Street Journal podcast. For you is it locks your housing costs, and it locks your housing costs at historically low interest rates. And what that means is that you know you you rent and your rental and the rental prices go up year after year. If you're young, chances are your income is rising. So you're locking your housing costs. And if you're stretching to by now, as your income goes up over time, that will feel much, much more comfortable. And, yes, Prices have gone up a lot. But I don't think they're going down because Housing is in such short supply. Meanwhile, you have locked rates at just historically low interest rate, so there's the case to do it. You lying on that price and even a little expensive right now, she says, You know what, your your your salary, your wages that will grow and over it, and over time, you'll still have the same low interest rates keep going up another perspective, different perspective, this from Professor Susan Wachter. University of Pennsylvania Wharton School and expert on the real estate industry. Who warns what could happen if we hit bubble territory. The problem isn't that home Owning isn't wealth building over the long run. It absolutely is. The problem is if we get into a bubble mentality on two sides, bubble mentality on prices and bubble mentality on credit, where lenders the 5500 lenders out their rush to undermine their lending standards. To lure households who are renders to become homeowners, but only for the short run because it's not sustainable because the loans are making are too risky. Be careful of the bubble. So good luck navigating the waters out there. My friends. This is a story you'd expect to see in the Wall Street journal, right? Yes, OK, They have a new article today on Well here, listen to this. Okay? It's on the road again. Just.

"Here It is call 855 Bible 11. That's 855 Bible, 11 855 Bible 11. Good afternoon. IPad. Thurston, We are speaking with Dr Robert Wachter. He's the chair of the department of Medicine at UCSF. We're talking about Cove it, Dr Walker. I'm gonna grab a quick call from one of our listeners before we let Kim ask her question. This is Peter. Calling from Capitola. Peter. Hi. Welcome to kgo. You're on with Dr. Walked her. Go ahead. Hi. Thank you. Yeah. My daughter is currently living in Beijing, China, and they had her get a vaccine over there. What with their Chinese vaccine, But she's dying to come home. I've got a granddaughter. I haven't seen yet. Um, and he wanted to know what can't you get vaccinated here with modern or Fizer after she's already been vaccinated over there, Okay. Doctor walked her. What about it? Yeah, it's a great question. You know, the Chinese vaccine has seemed to work fairly well. I can understand the desire to to get another one. Thea answer that. It's fine to get a additional vaccination. I don't think there's anything that would, uh, would conflict. I'm wondering whether it might be better for her to have her antibodies checked when she gets here to see whether she got a good enough immune response from the Chinese vaccine that she doesn't need it, But I think it's probably okay for her to could go and get a second vaccination if she wants, right. Terrific. Thank you so much. And Kim, you had a question that related to fertility Jim McAllister. Yeah, It's a multi prom question, so I'll try to ask it quickly. But I was texting with a bunch of moms who have daughters that are going to be 12 and we were talking about Things that we've experienced on. One of the moms said her cycle, her feminine. Her menstrual cycle was completely affected by the vaccine, and I did a little research and saw that a lot of people are saying that But that has led to claims possibly false about whether it effects fertility. So I was hoping that maybe you could talk about whether the cycle is affected and why that is and whether the whole, you know your your your uterus won't be able to accept the fetus type of thing is gonna is spreading on the Internet. And is that it? Does it depend on which vaccine it might be if there's any issue or any concern about that. Would it apply to all of the vaccinations, Doctor Wachter. Thea evidence that this is a thing that this actually happens because of vaccine is zero. That's become an Internet thing. There's actually some prescription one of these rumors being being spread by. We're talking about fertility, fertility or menstrual cycle, both both fertility and menstrual cycle. I mean, people have a regular menstrual cycles it be Of course, logical to ascribe it to the vaccine. But in studies that have looked at whether or not this is a common side effect, it's not shown up. It's a signal. And so you know anything can happen in any individual person. But the the the I worry about this particular mean because it seems to be one of those rumors that's getting spread on the Internet. Potentially being flamed by groups for that. What forever reason Want Eo want to get the vaccine is a bad name. There's absolutely no evidence that it has any impact on fertility and even impact on the menstrual cycle is is right now. No really strong evidence that that Has seen in a higher proportion of people who got in the vaccine versus those who haven't so I'm pretty skeptical of these, uh, these concerns that does seem to be one of the things that's getting propagating the Internet, and I think it z gonna be fake news. On. But I do believe I know this. Sometimes I think I know And then it ends up that I don't but I believe I know that pregnant women are being told that it is safe for them to be be vaccinated that it will not do any harm to the fetus. They're carrying it for a while. We didn't know for sure that that was true and pregnant when we're told it speak to their doctors. There have been a number of recent studies that have come out that have shown that the vaccine is perfectly safe. In pregnancy and now tens of thousands of pregnant women. Some of them knew their pregnant. Some of them didn't know what they were pregnant when they get vaccinated have had gone to have their babies and the rates of of problems with childbirth has been no higher and vaccinated people than an unvaccinated people so At this point, the zoo safe, it's effective. There's no physiological reason to believe the vaccines would cause Would cause a problem and the risk of covert in pregnancy is real. So the right thing to do is to take the vaccine when you had the chance. And Dr Watcher I want to thank you so much for joining us today, and I do want to tell people that they could follow you on Twitter. And if you follow doctor walked her on Twitter. There's a great deal of information that he post there, including when he sees you know, crazy cuckoo things. He tends to address those so you can follow him. His Twitter handle is at Bob underscore? Walked her. That's w A C H t e R at Bob underscore? Walked her. Dr. Walker has been a delight. Thank you so much for being with us today. Wow. So, Kimmy. You feeling better about that? So you're going to go ahead with the pregnancy? Oh, my pregnancy days are done, my friend. No. I think I agree with what you're saying about the pregnancy. Because just doesn't it doesn't make sense. And I think people are trying to You know, extrapolated all kinds of things that are not scientifically proven, but the the affecting your menstrual cycle. There's a lot of people who are saying that so I don't I don't know. Maybe they must undergo if they're if they're reporting this because that's one of the things that also you know, hangs in my mind is that they track what the side effects may be now when they were going through trials. You know the people who are participating in the trials. They were really thorough about reporting anything, any adverse effects and he sort of faith. That might be impacting them in any way and they had a variety of ages who were participating in this people who were of childbearing age and people who were not. But now that it's in general usage, and you've got hundreds of millions of people who are being vaccinated. The only way to know how those people are being impacted is if it's being reported in some capacity. And one thing. I'm a little bit uncertain If I know when my kids were back, say when your kids were vaccinated, I got phone calls. I got follow up from people with the government who were asking me if there were any adverse impacts any adverse effects of my Children's vaccinations. Did they get a fever? Did they have any discomfort where they crying for an inordinate period of time? Where there any rashes? I mean all these various things that they would ask me about the childhood vaccinations, and this was particularly when they were very young when they were infants and toddlers. Um, with the covert vaccine. I don't know that I don't believe there is anybody who's doing that kind of follow up where they're calling people and asking people you had your vaccine. How are you feeling? What's going on here? So I don't know how well we're actually tracking that. And if a woman Mrs a period, you know, generally speaking, you'll do a pregnancy test. And then you know you just your period starts later and you go up on your merry way. And you forget that it ever happened. So it could be there. I mean, this is my opinion. This has no clinical background whatsoever. But nothing to do with science. Yeah, well, not really, because I was thinking that with, you know, my son has had these this adverse reaction much more intense than what his sisters had to his second vaccination. And so I wondered about that. You know, he's actually seeing a doctor about this, and so I wonder if that's being reported. I know in all of the documentation, it says the These things began the evening of his second covert vaccine. If that's the case, I think that information is being reported. I think it's probably making its way to the appropriate reporting agencies, including the CDC, but I haven't asked anybody that and I have. Ah, there's a line where you can Ah, website where you can report adverse effects, but I had business. I mean, I guess I would if if my if I had something to report, I don't have anything to report. I think people won't I think that you if somebody calls you if they're proactive, and they call you to follow up, even if they do this on a you know of, I don't know what you call it, but, you know, they just pull people out of a hat and they don't do it with everybody..

"Commonwealth Club's Board of Governors. Now let's join Bob Walker can Kelly and Mark sitter for their Commonwealth Club conversation? Hello, everyone and welcome to the Commonwealth Club on Mark sitter chair of the set of a project, a member of the club's board of governors and your moderator for today's program on Covert 19 vaccines and returning to normalcy Story is a split screen. On the one hand, we have exceeded 17 million cases of covert 19 in America and lost more than 300,000. American lives. Over 19 is now the leading cause of death in America. Last week, CDC director Robert Redfield warned that for the next 60 to 90 days well, Seymour deaths from covert 19 every day. Then we suffered during the September 11th attacks or during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. But I think what brings the pandemic home to most of us are our personal experiences as I found out myself last week, two weeks ago on a cousin of mine died from Kobe. That was more powerful than any abstract statistic. So that's one side of the split screen, and it's a horrendous story on the other screen. The news about a vac season for the Corona virus is fantastic. For this novel disease that we never heard of a year ago. We've created not one but multiple, safe and effective vaccines in an effort that many call the greatest scientific achievement in human history. The vaccine, produced by Fizer and violent tech just got the green light from the FDA last Friday. It was shipped this weekend. And as I'm sure most of you have heard just yesterday it the first vaccine was administered to health care professionals in the United States. So we have these two powerful vectors colliding right now. Burgeoning disease and the growing armament of vaccines to slow and combat the disease. So the questions are. How fast can we get a vaccine into enough arms of Americans? You slow and stop the disease who will get it first, who will have to wait the longest and who may not take it all? How long will it take to get our lives back to normal? And what will normal look like compared to what it was before the pandemic was moderator. I get to ask the hard questions, but don't have to answer them. Fortunately, we have two terrific experts, both common with veterans help answer these and other questions. I'll introduce them to you right now. Dr. Robert Wachter is professor and chair of the Department of Medicine. At the University of California, San Francisco, where he is the Holly Smith, Distinguished professor and science and medicine and the Benny Off endowed chair and hospital medicine. He is the author of 250 articles and six books and writes, often for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and many other publications. In 2015 modern Healthcare magazine ranked him as the most influential physician executive in the country. But for all these accolades, the real reason that Bob is here. Is because when the pandemic first started, Bob just began tweeting about what he was seeing at UCSF, his perspective as both a practicing physician and a hospital executive. Caught on. And since then, his tweets on covert 19 have been viewed over 50 million times by more than 250,000 followers. Our other guest is Ken Kelly, a veteran biotech and vaccine executive, currently working as a strategic advisor to and co founder of several companies. Folks going affects diseases, including the treatment and prevention of covert 19. From 2016 through 2018. Ken was a White House presidential executive fellow and an adviser on penned in preparedness to the National Institute of Allergy and Effects Disease. With his director, Anthony Fauci, he still regularly in touch and the biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, or Barda. And the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, So Ken brings both vaccine business and policy expertise to us today. So Bob can welcome back to the Commonwealth Club. I have some questions for you, of course, And the audience also is invited to ask questions in the chat, and I will try to include as many as I possibly can. I'm sure we'll have more than we can handle, but we'll get to all the most important ones. So, Bob, I want to start with you. I just mentioned the headlines of how bad the pandemic is on a national level. What are you seeing right now? At UCSF. We are first of all, Thanks for having me and us. We're seeing a surge. Unlike any that we have seen in the pandemic Azaz, you know, San Francisco's had a remarkably benign experience so far. We had We stopped on the curve in March and April. We saw a bit of a surge in June and turned it around very quickly. This time. It's not turning around. It's going in the wrong direction and pretty fast trajectory. So a month ago at UCSF, we had 10 covert patients and two or three on ventilators. Today we have 50. On about 10 or 12 on ventilators. So about five times the volume we had in the beginning that doesn't stress the system in a major way. It's obviously challenging to take care of the patients, but it hasn't caused us to. Uh, it's a 600 bed Hospital. We have 70 ICU bed, so there's still plenty of room. But things are going in the wrong direction. And what's different about this from prior surges is despite the governor and the region's stay home orders that were issued a couple weeks ago doesn't seem like things are turning around, and I think that's probably Thanksgiving effect on top of People, people going out on about following the rules, so going in the wrong direction, and we'll see we're hoping we'll turn around soon. Well, I want to ask you to push him..

So you could see somebody from behind and think that you know who that is, But you could be mistaken until you see their face correct. So when you put in your face out there on Facebook, you could have a million pictures. You can have a million videos, but you really don't know what somebody looks like until they start writing.

I appreciate that brother Dennis. Um, so anyway, fellas on those close to the end of the show, and when you touched on a couple of topics real quick and make this happen, um so Starting with Howard in the crew, Man. Money is going on on boys. For real For real. I'm rolling with Michigan. Juwan Howard has the formula and if he doesn't have the right team right now he's recruiting. People love him. He's likable. He's hip hop nonstop, Hes Up five. He's you know, he's a perfect formula. You know, I'm saying just far so I really see him being a real real juggernaut this year. You know, I'm saying he's ISO. For position. Nothing is OK. Forget about it far is elapsing or out, doing two on Howard this year to one how it is, you know, he's he's younger than is, Oh, he's more in touch with his. Oh, his hip is Oh, he's Fab five. He was a player. I don't know if he is there was a player not perfect. You know, Joanna, our is the perfect piece he keeps. He's like a basketball scientist. In a sense, he's uh, you know, he's that stirred. Player who was just very set in his ways of being disciplined, bro. It's going to be something very special. And I'm you know, only time will tell how far he can go. But I'm thinking most definitely Final four. But again, he might. He might need some extra pieces. You might need to pick up some more people or get some more people over on his team throughout the year because people are going to be all those things you say are correct. You know, the other thing that I just didn't realize till today. I was just doing some Just some reading and Juwan Howard. He was the first player first player to ever leave early from a school. And go to the MBA and still graduate with the team are still graduate with his recruiting class like he went to the MBA, and he still took classes and graduated on time with his year. Whatever was 93 94. 1st 1st NBA player ever to do that guys have gone back and had online classes. But he took the regular amount to graduate on time, even though he was a rookie in the MBA with all the you know everything that I would be doing When I went to the MBA. I'd probably take the books and throw him over in the corner. Honestly, he he's that he's that, you know, I'm saying he's a professor but still hip hop, but anyway I was going to get to the MBA. Real quick and NFL so MBA. Um guess what, Dennis and Jamie guess what, fellas. Lakers will not be repeating and it's gonna be yes, that's why that's it. Lakers will not repeat and I might just might just root against them because of that, Rob pulling. Could that no good Lodi Wachter Hlinka that disrespectful to the King Magic Johnson Rana Pelinka messed up the team by putting in those extra pieces that have not meshed together properly.

I think you get give away Another key piece. Aziz. Well, he gave away Now, Danny Green. I was kind of okay with that one. But Danny Green does blanks experience on both sides of the floor but be able to pay for that. And I don't see the Lakers repeating because also the NBA. The MBA did. The man is well, the NBA made them start to made them start too soon. And when LeBron James Probably had to get pushed to the limit because his team may not show up properly because they have a mesh together properly. That might planetary his body who knows, and then we know 80. Is ah, Injury prone, dude, I wishing that the bed on him, but still you pushed to the limit. Are you saying a d soft with the tea? No, I'm saying he's kind of injury problems sometimes, but I hope not going forward in the future, but Receiving.

Somebody's gonna do. Let me win it right? Whole thing. Um, maybe the Clippers now get me wrong. I might want the Lakers to win, but Russia political really pisses me off, man. He better make it. You better make it right. Make this right with Magic Johnson. You better let Matthew Johnson go ahead and start giving him more advice. To get those players back. Now. I think if those players back that I want I wrote the Lakers, but until that time, I think I'm I think I'm a safe. Maybe the Clippers or I don't know who else to say.

"Or get 5 30. It's KQED news. I'm terrorist Siler. The initial vaccine roll out across the country and especially in California, is behind schedule, hampered by distribution and logistical challenges. It's bad enough that some are saying the U. S. Should consider delaying the second dose so that more people can at least get their first shot more quickly. Dr. Robert Walker is chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco. He wrote an opinion piece in The Washington Post calling for this changed the vaccination distribution plan. And doctor walked her. The protocol for the Fizer and Madonna Vaccines calls for two doses about one month apart. We are only a few weeks into the vaccination campaign. This point. Why do you think we should make this change now? Well, I didn't as recently as two weeks ago because the doses that were proven to work best were the ones that they used in the clinical trials. But there's three things that got me worried and thinking that we might need to shift our strategy. One is the extraordinary surge of seeing all over the country. The second is the slowness of the rollout, and one hopes it will improve and there's some learning curve there. But it's pretty slow and much lower than we expected. The third is this new variants of the virus, which is in the United States, So I think we're in more of a race than we thought we were. And the data from the trials showed that yes, it was after the second shot that you reach 95% effectiveness, But you got up to about 85 to 90%. After about a month after the first shot. We published not bet on it in part because I wanted to help generate a national discussion that seems to be happening and yes, it yes, it is. The FDA issued a statement saying it's not authorizing this change at least not now, calling it premature. Without more scientific data to support it. What's your response to those arguments? It's not an unreasonable argument, and we try to be very thoughtful about this. It's not like we're sure it's a slam dunk. You just have a pragmatic choice. You let's say here you are in high school gym, and there's someone with a syringe filled with vaccine ready to go. Do you give that next dose to someone is coming around for their second does Or do you give that next dose to somebody who is still waiting for their first particular high risk person? There are estimations that with the current rate of vaccinations and how slow it's going, that it could take years for everyone to get vaccinated, putting aside the windows, sort two doses or delaying the second dose. What do you think it's going to take to vastly speed up this process? Well, I think it will take a new administration. Frankly, I I think it will take Like an administration that that focus is like a laser on it the next 100 days and doing this right. It will take much more resource is and and thankfully, Congress passed in its bill that the past week or 10 days ago, there's $8 billion of new money to to promote vaccination. I think we've been pretty lax about this. I mean, if you think about it Number of people that are dying is close to a Pearl Harbor or 9 11 a day and you think about those analogies and what we did the next day to deal with the emergency? And the sluggishness of the rollout and you know, including many places. They're vaccinating folks from 9 to 5 on weekdays. That doesn't strike me as the kind of response that you would do if this was an emergency, and hundreds of thousands of lives were at stake, So I think we have to ramp up the way we're approaching this to meet the moment we're not doing it. All right. Thank you. So much doctor walked in. It's my pleasure. Thank you Appreciate it. Dr Robert Wachter, his chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco.

"Um, there has been a lot of concern that that the vaccines that we have highly efficacious that's vaccines are not being rolled out fast enough, and they certainly are not being rolled out fast enough. We're in the midst of a surge. It is urgent that we get people backs vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can. And that's particularly important Now that we have this this additional concern about this variant that seems to be more transmissible. Against that backdrop there. There have been these discussions that that doctor Wachter proposed that we actually shift from two doses to a single dose. And there is some reading of the trial data that suggests a single dose could provide enough immunity and this might be a way to effectively vaccinate more people. I think many of these policy and scientific discussions are well worth having because of the urgency of the situation. Could I ask you since you're talking about single doses about the status of Johnson and Johnson, which we don't hear A lot about is a vaccine. Yeah, I think we're waiting for trial results. And so that Z. Everyone is is really quite interested in the Johnson and Johnson back vaccine because it is a study a vaccine that was designed as a single dose and therefore might be an important and an important and more easily administered vaccine. But we still don't have the trial results. I think the concern I have about the discussions and I'm all in favor of the discussions about how we do. This more quickly is that one? It doesn't solve the fundamental problem, which is about implementation. We have a fundamental implementation problem of how do we effectively get all the vaccines that landed here in California into the arms of all the people better intended? We have that problem right now, whether we do it single dose or double dose, and that's not actually changed by the fact that we might go to a single dose strategy. Second is I worry about our communication challenge. We know that there's already been vaccine hesitancy. There have been people who refuse the vaccines because of concerns about scientific concerns, advocacy concern safety concerns and when we shift our course, mid stream, I don't think that we help the issues of communicating to the public. That is often times mistrustful because of the many ways in which the vaccines have been politicized over the course of this pandemic, so I think It's important. We have discussions about how to do this well, but we also have to just acknowledge the fact that the very the very clear issues of implementation. The logistical issues are probably the main thing. We have to focus on it this time. Then our guests again is thank you. Kirsten Bivens Domingo, professor and chair, the Department of Epidemiology and biostatistics at UCSF, where she's professor of medicine. Elizabeth wants to know. Could you talk about what workspace practices should be put in place to keep workers safer? We all see stores of ignore density questions or people wearing masks improperly are there rules and employers? Should be required to put in place. Yeah, It's a really great question. I think one of the things that we have seen is that throughout the pandemic, the California has probably been lied, lied a little bit more strongly on education than a little less really on enforcement of health orders in the workplace that it puts it. In contrast with other states, Kaiser Health News wrote about this. I think we do need to see more enforcement of the workplace and I think that it is. It's pretty clear that the workers were talking about Low wage workers who who need the jobs that they have are going to be least able to be in a position to enforce a health order. This is the responsibility of the employer or to enforce and and it is the responsibility of local and state governments. To ensure that employers are enforcing the health orders that we put in place that includes the density issues that you raised earlier and includes they will PPE available. It includes making sure that employees are not fearful of of finding out whether they are they are positive for Corona virus and would also include them that we have the types of resource is available in terms of sick leave for people to be able to. Take time off of work in San Francisco. We have the right to recover funds, which has been really important and helpful for our low wage workers. Those are the types of policies that we have to have in place. I think from a statewide level and really it's the enforcement issues to ensure that that employ yours are doing everything that they can to keep their employees safe. And I wanted to mention that there was a study on that essentially focused on the Latino population and said That there was more impact on those who work and food and agriculture and manufacturing. I think that's significant. Let me bring a another caller on its Eileen, who's a nurse in a large hospital in Folsom and Eileen, join us Welcome. Hello. Hi.

We're seeing a large proportion of, um like Eastern European, Russians, Ukrainians, that sort of thing. I don't know if that's just because of where we are and that one there did.

The article that appeared in Mission local and the mission here in San Francisco is right at the epicenter of the pandemic and Certainly effects the Latino and black populations more than any other. It's dependent to a great extent on where you are, but we're talking about state figures. You see, this is an epidemiologist from the state perspective, don't you? Yeah, I think that's right. So I think you know we are very large states, a large, diverse state and so the and we have a virus that is capable of infecting. Anyone and everyone, so I don't I'm not surprised that there will be a regional differences that there will be local differences in the communities that that in a particular areas appear to be disproportionately affected.

San Francisco's early restrictions seem to be helping hospitals avoid coronavirus overload — so far

Coronavirus concerns? The doctor will video chat with you now. Is that enough?
"As corona virus spreads in the United States the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are advising hospitals to increase their use of telemedicine virtual. Doctor visits over video chat. The goal is to keep what's known as the worried well out of hospitals where they might actually get exposed and potentially to reduce the burden on doctors and nurses so we wondered is telemedicine widespread enough and effective enough to make a difference. Dr Robert Wachter is chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco. I asked him how patients should think about using telemedicine. You mean to me the patient that has symptoms that feel like the flu and would otherwise be thinking about trying to get in to see their doctor If now I have the ability to see a doctor get the information I need. Maybe as testing becomes more widespread be guided to how I get a test done. If I can do that while sitting in my living room. That feels like a better way of accessing the medical system than requiring an in person visit for every patient that might need to get care or be triage in the kind of toolbox. Where would you place telemedicine in terms of its importance in either preventing are containing an epidemic? Like her and a virus. Not Super High on the list. Because I think at this point an in person or telemedicine visit between a patient and a doctor is not going to be the central hub of our response. The response is going to be much more in the public. Health Realm about identifying people have symptoms of being able to test them rapidly. Of course that creates a challenge for telemedicine if at the end of our telemedicine counter. You've gotta go get tested. You can't do that through telemedicine. You have to go somewhere to get a test right. Tell me about any other advances in tech that you think might be helpful right now. Specifically in terms of other technological passes I think a lot of it will come in the realm rather than of sort of the Internet and the Web and communications. A lot of. It's GonNa come in the in the way we're able to. I hope quickly ramp up the diagnostic testing for this Quickly ramp up vaccine production and other things like that. You know the way. We produce the flu vaccine. Every year is still not all that efficient so you wonder whether at the end of this we will take all of those processes that are still a little bit sluggish and Invest. What needs to be invested to modernize them so that. When the next thing like this happens we can plug it into an infrastructure and in a way that we couldn't today and sometimes unfortunately you need a crisis to demonstrate that you need to increase your capacity to be able to deal with next one. How often will say insurance cover? These visits it's improved a lot in the last couple of years. I think insurers have recognized that telemedicine is a perfectly reasonable substitute for an in person visit. No several years ago we were spending a lot of time and energy battling the insurance companies about whether they'll cover telemedicine and if they don't the business case to kind of go through What you need to go through to build the capacity build a system by the technology train. Everybody was a little bit weak That's changed in the last year or two. I suspect that this outbreak might be the tipping point to change it. Even more a most payers are paying for telemedicine visits Paying for them at levels that are not that dissimilar from from in person visits and I think it had to reach that point. Healthcare organizations invested what they needed to invest in either building their own telemedicine capacity or working with one of the companies. You know five or ten years now. The idea that I took off half a day of work drove twenty minutes parked and paid fifteen dollars for parking to go. See the doctor for fourteen minutes is going to seem crazy. It's going to be like really dad. You did that It's GonNa be the complete norm that the way you interface with the at least the outpatient healthcare system is through telemedicine visits and increasingly also through sensors and surveys that you answer and other other ways of interacting with the healthcare system which on the other end on. Aaron is going to be some of. It's going to be doctors and some of it's going to be Some of it's going to be technology so that's all growing and I think this epidemic is probably going to Turbo charge that growth.

How Teladoc Health Approaches Clinical Quality, Meets Hospital Virtual Care Needs
"So recently I came across an article On Talladega with the title. What's not to love about being in virtual healthcare? Maybe you can comment a little bit about the experience that you hope to create for patients as well as what safety and quality measurements. Do you as a clinician hoped to focus on through tele doc solution so I do believe that just like ten or twenty years ago when folks began exploring what it meant to be Devoting one's career to hospital medicine and we had that growing growing definition of the hospitalised. Actually the physician that coined that phrase Dr Bob Wachter WHO's the current chair? Uh of the Department of Medicine that. UCSF recently joined our medical advisory board. But I do believe that There will be in the years ahead. A growing field of medicine known as virtual care and that we will have virtual lists and virtual lists will have outstanding upstanding website manner if you will that ability to connect with patients and a highly personal way and then be able to offer that that individual a whole range of services. meaning that if that person for instance needs an expert medical opinion that virtuous can achieve that or if they need a type of referral to some type of specific expertise again the virtuous can care for that individual increasingly from our clients were getting Strong interest in virtual primary care. You're so this is an area that we believe is very ripe for development right now So no longer. Does it mean that your interaction with your virtual doctor is that episodic interaction but increasingly I do believe that there's a number of individuals who have a variety of chronic conditions diabetes hypercholesterolemia hypertension that really lend themselves into a longitudinal relationship with a clinical care team. And all of this can be done. Virtually what about quality and safety. What are you looking for? What are you tracking with these teams until talk solution so we believe that At the end of the day clinical quality is really what differentiates health In the market today and so we take clinical quality. Quite quite seriously actually Dr Bill Frist is On our board of directors electors and he tears up our quality and safety subcommittee and I would say that my job is a pretty easy job because when coming to that committee and having various ideas in terms of how we can move the quality needle I feel as though the quality and safety committee at CAL is a highly receptive audience for initiatives in these areas. So what are the some of these initiatives one. Our current General Medicine Program does see a tremendous amount of individuals who are suffering from upper respiratory illnesses. As you know there's a ramp's over prescribing of antibiotics And one initiative that. We've been very very focused on is antibiotic antibiotic stewardship. We're very happy to report that. We're currently working on a ARC grant With some researchers from the University of southern in California. Just around antibiotic stewardship. We do believe that we're currently tracking a bit better than brick and mortar in terms of Not Not over prescribing antibiotics. And yet we also feel so there's always room to grow We also feel as though there's ED overuse of steroids Being utilized for individuals who have a variety of upper respiratory complaints so using I using steroids indiscriminately is obviously not good for the patient. So this is another parameter that we're very carefully monitoring and then as you might imagine we look very carefully at our providers NPS scores that member satisfaction. We look at complaint rates. We look at visit time. We look at visit volume And ultimately what we have created for. Our clinicians is a dashboard. Because we do believe getting feedback on how you doing and how you're doing relative to your peers is a very important way that we can dr clinical quality On our expert medical services. We have a whole host of parameters that were routinely ainley tracking changes in diagnosis changes in treatment again. The member satisfaction being the hallmark of We're really trying to deliver care that is meaningful to the individual at the time that they're reaching out for care from Talbot Health. I Love Love The web side Care and As you as you mentioned when you were speaking about the virtual health care physician and I've never heard that before. I believe a lot of our listeners. When they hear virtual healthcare they are going to think that? There's this additional technologies in play other than what is at the normal Brick and mortar clinicians office. If you will could you discuss with us a little little bit about the technology you all are using that help. Sure so I I. I'd say that at its simplest. We really really feel as though we want technology to be deployed in a way that enhances coulda call quality so We do have the capabilities to integrate With Taito care for instance which is a way that one can Listen to someone's chest and look at their ear But we don't want these to be GATING obstacles So if the issue of the individual can be resolved with a simple phone call. Aw We will do that If the individual requires a video consultation. Of course we do that. With a high degree of frequency We also are always looking for digital therapeutics and other ways as in which we can deploy technology to enhance clinical quality. But it's not the other way around so we're not looking to just put if if you will sizzle into our program through integrating devices and technologies. That at the in the end result are not meaningful meaningful in terms of driving meaningful clinical outcomes. That's great so we're we're not adding tech just to have more technology and play. I I think I think we can all appreciate that. You mentioned that one of the largest growing areas is primary care and chronic diseases which is so important A lot of times a diabetic doesn't necessarily need to go in to see the clinician in person every week or every month month. So when I if I'm a diabetic do I have the same doctor each time or do I simply have tele doc health physician each time when I reach out to them. Right so Again we are just beginning to dip our toe if you will into the waters of virtual primary care but I think it is all centered around an individual's care team so it would be a physician. It would be some type of advanced practice. Clinicians being a nurse practitioner or physician assistant would be a medical assistant. And this would be the care team team that would be connected with the individual Seeking care. But it wouldn't be the general network work of general medicine providers. We really feel as though that personal care team will be key In terms of the success of the program. Yeah Lou I think That's a great point. I I like to highlight care team management and personalized. Care as much as I can. I think I think The clinicians that I've worked with over the years in the literature allstate that the healing process and maintaining wellness health. I come from a community so creating that upfront. And being part of the plan is huge no matter how high tech the solution might be a little bit of if you can you had. Yeah right I mean obviously I don't think either one of you on this call would disagree with that. I'm pretty sure our listeners would applaud that as well Not I tonight one point that I did want to make. Is that what we're trying to create in terms of our virtual primary care offering is much more than Instead of seeing me in the office on Brooklyn Avenue we can have a skype call and We can resolve your issue without you needing to come in and park and go through all that inconvenience. I do believe leave. That virtual primary care can achieve a higher level of clinical outcome through the successful deployment of Data analytics so that this program can be specifically targeted to individuals that we know we'll take full advantage digital therapeutics remote patient monitoring a I a lot of other resources that that frankly are not available to the general internist practicing in the office setting so that if one can if you will not only be prescribing medications but also be prescribing digital tools. That will help drive the the individual to a greater state of wellness. I think you can begin to see. How virtual care can in some instances exceed what is traditionally unle available through your routine? Hi Mary Care in a brick and mortar setting.
