Until It's Fixed

Until It's Fixed

Health care in the United States is complex, hard to navigate and doesn’t always work the way it should. The good news: So much has changed over the last few years. Leaders inside and outside of the health industry are rethinking how to deliver care and support to meet all people where they’re at. When it comes to your health, everything is connected. So, taking better care of it needs to go beyond the physical to include mental, emotional, social and spiritual health. And to look at the full picture, health care needs to give more consideration to where you are born, live, learn and work, too. In Season 3 of “Until It’s Fixed,” we’ll talk with thought leaders and advocates working to solve the health industry’s biggest challenges — as well as personal stories from people who live with these issues every day. We’ll have deep conversations about opportunities to make the current system work better for everyone, including talking more openly about the role that gender, sexual orientation, race, income and other areas of your life play in accessing and receiving health care. This is where change starts. Join us on the inspiring journey to create a healthier world — and make health care simpler and more effective for everyone.

When it comes to any relationship, it takes two people to make it work. And, a doctor-patient relationship is no different – both people have a role to play in communicating, which helps build trust. This week, we look at how you can create or improve a relationship with your doctor by talking with guests from both sides: Dr. Maria Hale, a patient experience expert at Optum, and Omase Lassey, a patient and health ad...

EPISODE SUMMARY: 

Many studies show having a strong relationship with your doctor really matters. People who like their doctor report fewer health issues and a higher quality of life compared to those who don’t. That’s because the more comfortable you are with your doctor, the more likely you may be to follow their advice – or go to them when you’re struggling. We talk with Dr. Soo Rhee from Healthgrades (part of RVO Health,) the #1...

Habit tracking, like writing down what you’re eating/drinking, can help keep you honest when working towards a health goal. When it comes to getting more movement into your day, using a wearable fitness tracker or your phone can help. Some experts recommend aiming for 10,000 steps a day to get maximum health benefits but others say just getting up and getting moving is really the most important thing – no matter the...

What motivates you to stay healthy? It’s different for everyone, but some people find participating in health and wellness rewards programs through their employer or health insurance company really pays off. If you adopt simple habits like tracking your steps or getting an annual physical, you may have opportunities to earn dollars, which you can use in a variety of ways.

Think about your workday- what your environment looks like, how you interact with co-workers, how you prefer to communicate.

There is no 'normal' when it comes to the human brain. We all experience the world uniquely and learn, think and communicate in different ways. However, there’s a generally accepted range of what’s considered ‘typical,’ and brain activity outside of that range is considered ‘neurodivergent.’ This includes people with conditions like ADHD, autism, dyslexia, OCD, and Tourette's.

EPISODE SUMMARY:

How we divide chores and childcare is an age-old problem, with women historically handling most of the work in the home. Laundry, cleaning and carpool may seem like personal issues, but they can cause burnout, anxiety, depression and other illnesses like any job outside the home. This makes “invisible labor” a matter of public health. If you work at home, you may feel what you do isn’t acknowledged or seen as valuab...
