Way More Than a Health Plan Counting on Faith Bridges To Fatherhood Real World Data. Real Life Mentoring for a More Equitable Future. Issac Asimov believed robots could have a true humanizing influence, and one day do the work to make life easier, freeing us to do the work that makes life worthwhile.
For many nurses, caring for patients is that worthwhile work. However, studies have shown that roughly 30 percent of a nursing shift is devoted to patient care, with the rest given over to other tasks like finding medications, tracking down equipment, tracking down supplies, and documentation. So the question is, how can we give time back to nurses, so they can put patients—and themselves—first? Enter Moxi, a robot—and patient selfie favorite—deed to help nurses complete routine, non-patient facing tasks.
In this episode of Meeting of Minds, David Marshall, JD, DNP, RN, FAAN, senior vice president and chief nursing executive at Cedars Sinai and renowned social robotics expert, and Andrea Thomaz, PhD, CEO and co-founder of Diligent Robotics, sit down to discuss how nurses can lead interdisciplinary collaboration, the important role chief nursing officers can play in encouraging staff innovation, and the need for nurses to practice at the top of their. At the center of their discussion is Moxi, a piece of technology deed to assist but never replace the priceless value and human interaction that nurses bring to patient care.
Together, David, Andrea, and Moxi are proving that Nurse Robot Assistants can help reduce nurse fatigue and give nurses time back to care for patients, practice self-care, and focus on the big picture. Because no matter how advanced they become, robots don't take care of people.
People take care of people. The health of our planet is in serious condition. Climate change is anticipated to result in increasingly warmer global temperatures, more extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. Without accelerated intervention and broad scale innovation across all economic sectors, we face devastating effects on global water and food supplies, critical infrastructure and supply chains, physical and mental health, and a less certain future.
Understanding the impacts of climate change on human health is vitally important for the global population. In this episode we meet Teddie Potter, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director of Planetary Health for the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota to learn how nurses can and are reducing greenhouse emissions, find out why educating girls is key to a healthier planet, and discover who the best intergenerational storytellers are for helping us understand our relationship to and stewardship of the planet and where to innovate to improve its health.

A key to healthy aging is maintaining or improving your health, which for our oldest adults, largely falls outside of healthcare facilities.
For many, health allows us to feel safe wherever we are.
Led by Sarah L. By installing small, cost effective yet thoughtful adaptations to the home environment, older adults can ease the of activities of daily living—things like bathing, dressing, standing to cook, moving up and down stairs—that sustain and promote their physical, mental, and emotional energy—leading to richer lives full of creativity and meaningful contribution. Guests Featured in this Episode Sarah L. How do you build, staff, and stand up an online psychiatry and therapy office over the course of 45 days? And in a pandemic, no less? For Lavender founders and seasoned entrepreneurs Pritma Dhillon Chattha, DNP MHA RN and Brighid Gannon, DNP, PMHNP-BC it was experiencing first-hand how the pandemic was moving every aspect of our lives online at lightning speed; hearing from colleagues seeking mental health support the countless difficulties they encountered navigating and accessing services; and having the business skills and entrepreneurial experience to seize the moment to de and deliver much needed innovation in the psychiatric care.
Pritma and Brighid are making mental healthcare more affordable and accessible by bringing business operation tools that may not be innovative in other industries into mental health services. And while the headline of this story is innovating in mental health services delivery, an equally remarkable headline is how their workforce and workplace innovation is reducing the stigma of seeking care through private on-line therapy, and increasing the availability of mental health professionals while offering providers the work flexibility they need to do so.

May 12 is International Nurses Day, chosen to commemorate the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the British nurse, social reformer and statistician best known as the founder of modern nursing. The past year has certainly raised visibility of nurses and highlighted their essential role in improving global health. In this episode, Barbara Stilwell, PhD, RN, FRCN, a nurse, researcher, policy expert, and Executive Director of the Nursing Now global campaign, seeks to elevate the nursing profession, sharing the power of nurses connecting and uniting to tackle big problems like gender and economic inequality while improving health outcomes — the episode is as relevant today as when it first aired.
Marrying her nursing background with a genuine enthusiasm for the power of policy to improve and save lives, she co-founded the Black Maternal Health Caucus and introduced The Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of A comprehensive legislative solution, the Momnibus covers everything from the intersection between the COVID pandemic, being a pregnant person of color, to the impact of extreme heat and air pollution on maternal and infant health outcomes.
This legislation will drive innovation in practice—a bill that will scale transformative care by matching policy with science and data. It is also a reminder that there are solutions to longstanding inequities and problems, if we are bold enough to enact them.

While these events have traditionally been geared towards computer scientists and software developers in recent years nurses, clinicians, and health innovators have started to convene health-challenge inspired events. Today the health hackathon landscape is exciting, rapidly evolving, and nurses are playing a lead role in driving them.

To kick off our second year, we explored everything from disaster preparedness and vaccines, to data and working with faith leaders as key collaborators in health innovation. In each episode, we asked how the pandemic has revealed new needs, amplified existing unmet needs, and exacerbated health disparities.
And, more importantly, we discuss what solutions are being developed to address the most ificant health challenges of today with distinguished experts with decades of experience, expertise and insights. In the meantime, we encourage you to go back through our library of episodes, rate and review the shows you love, and share them with your friends. And please share your stories with us. We want to hear what problems you are seeing and solving.
There is a growing body of evidence and experience supporting our understanding of and investing in the social determinants and drivers of health—the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.
In this episode, meet nurse and health plan innovator Karen Dale, MSN, RN, Market President and CEO for AmeriHealth Caritas, and dive deep into the details of how innovations in health plans and health insurance can and should focus on getting you care, helping you stay well and build healthy communities.
Reid More Less. Why do Americans struggle getting access to health care? It's a big question, and a big problem. One with serious consequences. Despite the plethora of health care systems, services, practitioners, and technology available throughout the United States, for many people, access to care is frustratingly difficult and frequently includes long wait times.
Public health emergencies ranging from weather-related events, man-made hazards and pathogen-based outbreaks and epidemics are far more common and increasing in frequency than one might imagine. The reality is there are many public health hazards with the potential to create catastrophic events that will have negative health outcomes for communities and the people who live in them as well as inflicting serious damage to the health systems and professionals responding to these crises and disasters.
In this episode we meet disasters head-on at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security by visiting with nurse scientist and innovator Tener Goodwin Veenema, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, FAAN, who spends all her waking hours and some sleepless nights considering the science, technology, and innovations that are being deployed to strengthen health systems, build community resilience, and protect national security.
The swift development, authorization and manufacturing of the COVID vaccines have been a remarkable scientific feat that conjures up the great stories of science achievement. While vaccines and vaccination are widely considered one of the great success stories in public health, they may also have become a victim of their own remarkable success; a success that can lead to complacency about the benefits of vaccination and a focus on the potential risks or side effects.
These hesitations can compromise vaccination programs and leave populations susceptible to outbreaks—a situation where no one is truly safe, because not enough of us are vaccinated.
We've seen remarkable progress in vaccine technology; however, progress in vaccine confidence and distribution, trust in science, and confidence in our institutions tell a different story. Together we discuss the ethics and details of clinical trials and vaccine distribution, and the role that nurses specifically play in developing vaccine confidence and innovating to rapidly and safely achieve mass COVID vaccination. There has been a long-standing relationship between faith, clergy, health, and healthcare. Faith-based partnerships have forged and furthered public health goals historically and more importantly, at present.
Clergy and faith-based organizations are pivotal and trusted players in their communities providing service, leadership, connection, communication, distribution of services, and increasingly, innovation. Real Life. The use of data is rapidly shaping and transforming every aspect of how we measure, track, research, and deliver healthcare.
Using large data sets, innovators have been unleashing technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, and sentiment analysis to open entirely new avenues to understand health conditions, the circumstances in which they arise, and personalized approaches to addressing them. Cancer care is one area where the use of data is rapidly transforming every facet of care, and one rapidly evolving development is the use of real world data to provide important insights that often have not been answered using data from the highly prized clinical trials data.
