Current EpisodeLibrary Release: Independent Medical Review

In this Fight Back Library Release, we talk about bringing healthcare into the digital age. Digital health is applying digital technologies to healthcare to improve wellness programs and make medicine more accessible, personalized, and precise. It aims to improve the quality of care and lower costs.

We welcome our special guest, Gary Cohen, Vice President of Government Affairs at Blue Shield of California.

Gary joins us to discuss what bringing healthcare into the digital age means. How are your healthcare records kept safe, secure, and yet accessible to your healthcare providers? How can the new technologies that help you monitor your health at home be integrated into your health records? Why are you still filling out a form with pen and paper when you visit a new doctor or specialist, or in the worst case, the emergency room? We dive into these questions and more.
