Designing the healthcare provider of the future: Chad Priest at TEDxIndianapolis

Chad Priest talks about his perspective as a healthcare provider in multiple professions: as a military nurse, a healthcare lawyer, university faculty member and most recently as the CEO of a non-profit crisis management organization. Through these experiences, he has come to believe that in order to create health you have to mix it up. Mix up the professions and the interactions. Priest is a dad, a husband, a nurse, an attorney, an Air Force veteran and the CEO of the MESH Coalition, an emergency management organization. But if you ask him, he’ll just tell you he’s a healthcare provider on a mission to change the way we think about healthcare and who provides it. To create health, we must mix it up: crossing professions and cross-pollinating solutions that lead to breakthrough thinking.

Durable healthcare — redesigning a system to work for everyone | Mark Arnoldy | TEDxMileHigh

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. What would it mean to throw out the world “sustainable” when we talk about health care? In this emotional talk, Mark Arnoldy confronts the challenges of modern healthcare in the world’s most challenging places, pointing to what’s possible when we look at improving results and lowering costs here in the U.S.

Mark Arnoldy leads overall strategy; focuses on building a remarkable team; develops partnerships; and makes sure the team never loses sight that everything is impossible until it isn’t for Possible. Prior to Possible, Mark worked closely with a Nepali social entrepreneur for three years to create an innovative way to treat malnourished children, and he helped create two U.S. businesses that fund nutrition programs in Nepal.

Bringing humanity to healthcare: David Joske at TEDxPerth

Modern medical practices have resulted in astonishing advances in cure rates for some of the most challenging forms of disease. Yet, many patients feel neglected, disrespected and unsupported in their journey as a patient.

In this talk, Prof. David Joske argues that quality of life is a too-often overlooked consideration for how best to treat patients. He outlines his experience of leading a hospital-based cancer support service that provides free complementary therapies to patients and their carers. He argues that although this service does not provide a cure, the benefit for the patients cannot be overlooked.

Professor David Joske’s vision is to “re-humanise” modern cancer care. He strives for all cancer patients to have an open-minded team supporting them to feel empowered to tackle their illness in their own way. As Head of Haematology at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (since 1994), his clinical and research interests include the treatment of lymphomas, palliative care in haematology and supportive care in cancer.

With more than 50 peer-reviewed publications in medical literature, he is the founder and chairman of the SolarisCare Foundation, which administers over 7,000 complementary therapy treatments to Western Australian cancer patients annually. A John Curtin Medallist and a three-time Australia Day Council Australian of the Year finalist, David’s dream is to re-establish supportive communities for cancer patients.

Bringing mindfulness to healthcare | Bob McClure | TEDxSanDiegoSalon

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The digital medicine revolution is a convergence of information technology, medical research, and the practice of medicine. It will personalize healthcare and create incredible new tools for wellness, but it also will add a layer of complexity and technological challenge to receive care and practice medicine.

Drawing from contemplative traditions and recent scientific research, secular mindfulness and compassion skills are tools that allow us figuratively to reach inside ourselves. In a sense these tools are mirror images of the technology that shapes our everyday lives.

Robert McClure LCSW, CEAP, is the manager for the Employee Assistance Program for Sharp HealthCare, San Diego CA., an integrated healthcare system with seven hospitals and 15,000 employees. Mr. McClure was trained by Stanford University’s Center for Compassion, Altruism, Research and Education (CCARE) in its Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) program, which he teaches to employees as part of Sharp’s mission to transform health care.
