Today Jessie is joined by her good friend and colleague, Jodi Smith, the Regional Administrator of Hospital Operations and Post-Acute Care for Kaiser Permanente. Jodi is one of Kaiser’s greatest and brightest. She was Eric Coleman’s research assistant; he is the national leader and founder of much of today’s care transition work. She is a true thought leader, a Nurse Practitioner, and full of heart for the patients, members, and people Kaiser serves.
In this episode, they discuss:
- What kind of help people actually need after they’ve been in the hospital.
- What value-based care means, and specifically what it means to patients in our healthcare system.
- And, how connecting people with one another is the true secret to reforming healthcare.
We hope to leave you feeling connected with renewed ambition to support the people through their wellness / illness journey. Thanks for listening!
