As the chief evangelist and co-founder of Aloha Health, my podcast guest Mandi Bishop is disrupting healthcare by making life actionable, helping healthcare systems make sense of the way invisible influences should shape personalized care plans, interventions, and engagements. She believes that patients must be partners in healthcare design and that there is no value-based care without recognizable value delivered to the very people healthcare exists to serve.
Prior to Aloha, Mandi led Dell Healthcare and Life Science’s Global Analytics Innovation and Consulting practice, driving solutions that touched the lives of over 100 million patients. In 2016, she was recognized as one of the “Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT” by Health Data Management magazine. She was #1 on the crowdsourced #HIT100 list of top healthcare IT industry influencers, and #3 on Healthagen’s “Top 10 Healthcare Leaders to Follow on Twitter”. In 2015, she was included in Rock Health’s “State of Women in Healthcare” report as a “Role Model”.
She is @MandiBPro on Twitter, co-chair for nationwide HealthIMPACT Forum events, an advisory board member for the Society for Participatory Medicine and #STEMPrincess, a contributor to the American Journal of Accountable Care and Tincture, and co-host of the Managed Care podcast series.
You should know by now that I am dedicated to the idea of teaching and sharing. Today’s guest is Manny Oliverez, President of Capture Billing.

One concern regarding social media that I hear from doctors, nurses, and administrators is the perceived lack of gravitas and sincerity such platforms can provide. My guest today is Doctor Ed Mariano, professor of anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is also the Associate Chief of Staff for Inpatient Surgical Services at Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System. We’ll talk about Twitter and the scientific method, live tweeting at conferences and how best to get accurate, transparent information to patients. I love healthcare providers that tweet, especially the ones that make the effort to encourage their colleagues to jump into social media.

In 2015 I interviewed Becky Canvin and Rick Evans of Ogilvy Healthworld about the state of Pharma and Social Media. The results reflected an industry that was cautious, risk-adverse and a little stiff. A lot has changed in the Pharma Social Media world with more Pharma companies embracing social media. In light of this growth in the use of social media, the team at Ogilvy Healthworld joined me for a conversation about what has changed and what additional factors they examined.
Joining my original guests, Becky and Rick are Philippa McClure, Sr. Account Manager with Ogilvy Healthworld and from Pulsar, Sameer (Sam) Shah.
