hol3health: 2021 Women’s Health Panel

There is a lot of noise when it comes to health and wellness, especially for our generation. Whether it is on Instagram, TV or other media sources, lots of claims are being made, leaving so many women and men feeling at a loss on what is fact vs fiction. At a time where the US currently has the greatest burden of chronic illness, lowest satisfaction of care out of 11 developed countries and overall intersectional healthcare disparities, we at hol3health want to create a space where people can come together and have a relevant dialogue about all things health that is medically-backed and trustworthy. On March 31st 2021, hol3health presented its first Women in Healthcare panel with four accomplished guest panelists tenured in transforming the business of healthcare. 

Below are the video notes including information on the key speakers, question outlines and video time stamps.

Team Q&A:

  1. 8:57-17:03 In a post-COVID era, telehealth has become increasingly important as the industry as a whole adjusts to the new standard of delivering care. To our panelists, how have you implemented newly accessible technology into your business? 
  2. 17:03- 22:53 Implicit Bias is an embedded issue within healthcare that has historically impacted care for diverse populations, be it sex, race, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. How can doctors and healthcare providers create a safe and inclusive space?
  3. 22:53- 29:07 We all are aware of the classic stereotype of doctor visits in the US-  you go into a cold room, waiting around for a physician who doesn’t even know your name (and you might have even forgotten theirs), finally arriving, they stay for 5 minutes and leave. Not to say that any of our panelists approach to care in this way but many patients experience this when seeing their doctors, which may lead patients to put off seeking care. How can physicians and caregivers in a general move away from the generic one size fits all model to more personalized, humanized care? 
  4. 29:07 – 36:01 At h3h, we strive to debunk common healthcare myths. Can you think of any misconceptions surrounding health that people should be aware of?
  5. 36:01 – 43:40 Before we open the floor to the audience, we would love it if you all individually could think about one thing you wish you could tell your younger undergrad or right after college self? 

Audience Q&A: 43:40 – 1:01:11
