Navigating Healthcare: How to Help Families in Medical Crisis

We are lucky to be joined by Dr. Daniel Carlin, a board-certified emergency physician and national leader in the field of telemedicine. Dr. Carlin opens the show to speak about the most substantial healthcare gap he fills with his medical practice. Unfortunately, there is a massive problem around continuity and accountability in the healthcare system. There needs to be familiarity between the patient and their physician to get an excellent diagnosis. One way to create a strong relationship between physician and patient is through technology. Tune in as Dr. Carlin talks about the correlation between wealth and health and what you need to know about our healthcare system’s future.

 

In This Episode:

  • [01:10] About Dr. Daniel Carlin. He’s a medical doctor boarded in emergency medicine and for the last 22 years, he has been running a fairly unique medical practice.
  • [06:25] Substance abuse and misbehavior are tough conversations to have. They are even more difficult to have between a patient and a physician when there is no existing relationship. Dr. Carlin explains why trust is critical for these conversations.
  • [09:10] Dr. Carlin answers the question: does more money guarantee better health outcomes?
  • [17:50] Dr. Carlin explains how being a boarded emergency physician is like a practice of bonfires.
  • [21:20] We speak about the critical role of advocacy during the pandemic.
  • [24:00] What Dr. Carlin wants people to consider about our healthcare system.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • In order to get a great diagnosis, there needs to be familiarity between the patient and their physician. Unfortunately, patients are passed around too freely and easily.
  • The loss of continuity is actually quite costly when it comes to practicing good medicine, so the healthcare system needs to restore relationships with patients using connectivity.
  • Tough decisions in the healthcare world can’t happen for a patient if there isn’t trust and familiarity with the physician.
  • In general, more money guarantees a longer life. However, that may not equate to better overall health.
