Continuing the Conversation
Every Wednesday your Freedom Hub (founded by Jeff Kanter and Charles Frohman) hosts two Zoom calls. One is at 4pm, the other at 7pm. The 4pm call is eclectic (often regarding our liberties…or disappearing liberties) and the 7pm usually is centered around practitioners who use a cash-based practice and what they do. These are recorded and archived. There are over 90 to date!
On 7/21/21 we had with us Sanjay Prasad, surgeon and founder, SurgiQuality
Knowing which surgeries are worth it not only helps Patients - but also addresses Racial disparities
Dr. Prasad has founded a venture to help patients pick the right specialist for acute treatments like surgery, while avoiding the 20% of interventions that are unnecessary. Surgical referrals currently stem from a patient's primary care doctor or emergency room physician, to surgeons without concern for cost or outcomes. This lack of guidance in picking the best specialist hurts especially minorities, leading to a racial disparities such as more hysterectomies for black women, less frequent aneurysm repairs for black men, and higher post-surgical deaths for black patients. The referral process is the heart of the problem in surgical care.
Dr. Prasad hopes the public's appetite for change post-COVID will ignite interest in these abuses of patients and racial disparities. He wrote a handbook on this theme, "Resetting Healthcare: PostCOVID 19 Pandemic", to help patients understand common myths widely held involving surgical care and why no employer or health plan can say no.
