WIHI – Who’s Your Health Care Proxy?

A clip from the April 7th WIHI broadcast – Who’s Your Health Care Proxy?

Featuring:

Suzanne Salamon, MD, Associate Chief, Gerontology Division, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

None of us likes to imagine being unable able to speak for ourselves when it comes to our health care. But situations arise throughout our lives when we need a trusted person to communicate with doctors and nurses on our behalf. And, if we are facing care decisions near the end of life, a trusted proxy can play a crucial role ensuring our wishes are respected. So, does everyone have a documented health care proxy? In all likelihood, no, or not yet, which is why there are numerous efforts underway to close this gap.

The Conversation Project, a five-year-old grassroots initiative based at IHI, has just published a new, free resource it believes can help: How to Choose a Health Care Proxy & How to Be a Health Care Proxy. We learned more about this latest proxy kit and the issues surrounding choosing a health care proxy on the April 6 WIHI: Who’s Your Health Care Proxy?

Full broadcast available via itunes or on the WIHI archive page at ihi.org (http://www.ihi.org/wihi)

How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care

Listen to the full episode here: http://www.ihi.org/resources/Pages/AudioandVideo/WIHI-The-Digital-Transformation-How-Technology-is-Helping-and-Hurting-Health-Care-.aspx

Look to your left. Now look to your right. Chances are, you just saw a computer. Probably more than one.

Technology is everywhere in health care — and for many reasons, that’s a good thing. It’s fast, it’s efficient, and it can reduce errors. What’s not to love?

Well, a lot. Technology is not a cure-all. It can make people complacent, introduce new errors, and get in the way of meaningful face-to-face interactions.

Still, love it or loathe it, technology is here to stay and we need to learn how to get the most value from the digital world that health care increasingly relies upon. That will be the focus of our conversation on the June 1 WIHI, The Digital Transformation: How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care. World-renowned patient safety experts Bob Wachter and Tejal Gandhi will share what they’re learning about technology’s impact (both positive and negative) on our industry.

What Is an “Upstreamist” in Health Care?

“There are three friends who come to a river …”

So begins a parable from Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, who has a different view of our health care system. Health care, Manchanda says, has rescuers and raft builders to save people from drowning, but it doesn’t have nearly enough people looking for the root causes to the problems that plague patients every day.

In this IHI Open School short, Manchanda creatively explains why he’s an “upstreamist” — and why the health care workforce is still swimming against the current.
