The US Health Care System Needs Immigrants

By any objective measure, the United States doesn’t train enough medical doctors to meet the nation’s needs. That means graduates from other countries are needed. Aaron takes a look at foreign medical graduates, an essential element of America’s health care system.

This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/06/upshot/america-is-surprisingly-reliant-on-foreign-medical-graduates.html

Culture and healthcare: When medicine and culture intersect

This video from The Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) provides advice and key learnings on culture and physician care.

Culture incorporates a mix of beliefs and behaviours that define the values of communities and social groups. All physicians have their own cultural background, and most doctors practising in Canada are accustomed to providing care to patients from different backgrounds. Moreover, physicians are increasingly aware of the way in which culture can shape the practice of healthcare and influence health outcomes.

While it is common to speak of cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity, physicians and other providers are increasingly recognizing the importance of cultural competence and providing cultural safety to patients.

For more information on culture competence, cultural safety, and the CMPA, visit: https://cmpa-acpm.ca/

Meet Suki, The Siri For Healthcare | Incident Report 217

What if we had an invisible, Alexa-like assistant that functioned like a medical intern, doing the scut and freeing us to be present for our patients? Punit Soni, founder and CEO of Suki, is building exactly that.

In this episode we discuss how technology can actually enable the human relationship that’s been lost in healthcare. We talk about the challenges and opportunities of having a voice-activated AI that empowers rather than obstructs. Would you let it into your exam room? After talking to Punit and seeing the demo, I have little doubt that the future of Health 3.0 is gonna be bright (with only a 30% risk of robot apocalypse).
