Google Maps is useful because it’s driven by an incredible trove of quality data that empowers us to see the world from different perspectives—a humble orb floating across the galaxy or a sandwich shop down the street.  What if healthcare had such a trove of data? Clean data that, instead of being holed up in silos, flowed like a river across the industry? Many experts believe that if this was the case, we could zoom out to build big-picture maps of chronic disease hotspots (and more efficiently conduct the work needed to curtail such problems) and zoom in to the individual patient, who could benefit from our improved understanding of family history, social determinants of health and other distinct factors. Is this an idealistic, far-fetched idea? Not quite. Dozens of Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) across the country are working toward this noble goal right now. Angie Bass, president and CEO of the Missouri Health Connection, a midwestern HIE, is looking to leverage the data in her network to help her partners provide better care.  Tune into this episode to learn more about the strategies Bass uses to manage the constant evolution HIEs must endure, what specific steps she plans to take to achieve her lofty goals, and how she ensures her network harnesses the cleanest data available as a fuel source to propel the healthcare industry forward.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
