B-Time with Beth Bierbower

Apr 20, 2021

In this episode we discuss episodes of care.  An episode of care is looking across a condition or treatment and pulling all the related transactions together to get a holistic view of what has taken place.  Health Plans like to look at episodes to identify total costs of care.  Providers like to look at episodes of care to better anticipate the patient’s needs.  This sounds like a good way to look at health care.


Unfortunately, the actual member experience doesn’t happen this way.  Each provider seems to operate in a different silo and even the health plan doesn’t pull it all together for the consumer.  With us is Duncan Reece, COO and Co-founder of Cohere Health a company whose mission is to enable the Care Journey that is right for the patient and do whatever it takes to arrive at that outcome quickly.  You’ll learn how Cohere Health is breaking down barriers and also learn about the other areas within HealthCare where the company is applying its expertise.  Duncan’s background is steeped in healthcare.  He has worked at outstanding organizations such as Health Dialog, Iora Health, and Behavioral Health company Mindstrong.


Show Notes: Duncan is reading The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan and several Roald Dahl books with his two children.  He listens to “How I Built This with Guy Raz.
