In this podcast, Chris interviews Dr. Katy Lanz, Founder and Principal of TopSight Partners, a boutique advisory innovation partner, focusing on care at home. Dr. Lanz started out her career as a hospice nurse and helped build one of North Carolina’s first palliative care programs in the early 2000s.
She later became the Chief Clinical Officer of Aspire, and led through partnerships with over 20 health plans, in 28 states. Katy has led two CMMI demonstrations, an ACO Reach practice and she is now one of the country’s most sought after thought leaders on innovative healthcare projects and the future of serious illness.
Chris and Katy discuss many topics that hospice and palliative care leaders and Boards need to be thinking about like Medicare Advantage Plans, how disruptive innovations and substitution competition could and are impacting hospice and palliative care, and what they should be doing to position their organizations into the future. Katy also talks about the competency of managing risk and how important this competency is to the future. She does an incredible job breaking this down for staff by the bedside to understand what that means and how important our interdisciplinary team members are to that competency, which is going to get even more important in the future. This one segment of the podcast is one you will want to pay forward to all your hospice and palliative care staff and also your Board.
Chris and Katy also discuss some of the interesting innovative projects that are emerging and she gets exposed to, including a project with Dollar General. Did you know that nearly all Americans are within 5 mile radius of a Dollar General? And did you know they are thinking about how to help their customers and their healthcare needs? That and many more pearls are waiting for you in this episode.
This is a great listen for staff, leaders, and Board’s of hospice and palliative care organizations. Join us, this is timely and relevant.
