New MiCare Champion Podcast Features MHA-member Interviews
Posted on October 19, 2017
The MHA has launched a podcast series called the MiCare Champion Cast, which features interviews with healthcare policy experts in Michigan on key issues that impact healthcare and the health of communities.
Three episodes, plus a bonus episode, have been released to date, covering auto no-fault, the opioid crisis and health equity. The episodes released so far feature insights from Ewa Panetta, manager of patient safety & quality at the MHA Keystone Center; Jacqueline Thomas-Hall, system director of diversity and inclusion for Beaumont Health, Southfield; Laura Appel, the MHA’s senior vice president and chief innovation officer; Rami Khoury, MD, FACEP, medical director of emergency medicine at Henry Ford Allegiance Health, Jackson; and Paige Fults, director of advocacy at the MHA.
Future topics will include the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare), advocacy, transparency, and other quality and safety topics.
The podcast is part of the statewide #MiCareMatters campaign, launched earlier this year, which aims to build a network of citizens — “MiCare Champions” — who will be called upon to engage in advocacy efforts to protect access to affordable healthcare services in Michigan. It is available to listen to via SoundCloud, iTunes and many other podcast apps, with new episodes released every two weeks.
