Posted on December 07, 2018

MiCare Champion Cast podcast artThe latest episode of the MiCare Champion Cast, the MHA’s podcast on issues surrounding healthcare, covers the impact that health information sharing has on patient care.

Healthcare encompasses more than medicine, nurses, physicians and hospitals; it also includes a lot of data. By collecting and securely sharing patient data, Michigan hospitals are working to improve efficiency and safety in healthcare for patients.

The episode features interviews with Tim Pletcher, executive director of the Michigan Health Information Network (MiHIN) and Jim Lee, the MHA’s vice president of data policy and data analytics, about the impact of information sharing on healthcare quality and safety.

The episode can be heard on SoundCloud or iTunes. To listen on a mobile device, subscribe to the “MiCare Champion Cast” with a podcast app, such as Apple podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and more.

The podcast is part of the statewide #MiCareMatters campaign, which was launched in 2017 and aims to build a network of citizens — “MiCare Champions” — who want to engage in advocacy efforts to protect access to affordable healthcare services in Michigan.

Members with questions or who would like to submit ideas for future podcasts should contact Laura Hall at the MHA.
