The part most relevant to Democratic presidential candidate nominee, Andrew Yang, that automation and the fourth industrial revolution will be economically and socially disruptive, are laid out here. IN PART TWO – THE PROMISE Alex Rodrigues, CEO of Embark, notes that “keen insights on how gigantic advances in AI make [self-driving trucks] possible.” In a later segment, Rodrigues notes that in “less than half a decade”, we can expect trucks loaded with freight to drive themselves with no one inside (35:00) Microsoft president, Brad Smith, notes that “artificial intelligence will reshape every aspect of our economy and so many aspects of our lives.” AI is like electricity in that everyone will use it including governments, non-profits and will […] Read More »

Birth Control Online – Telecontraception Safety – NEJM

Women and doctors should feel reassured and comforted that getting access to birth control contraception safely and conveniently is as simple as downloading an app and the care provided equals or exceeds that of an in-person office visit. Our Lemonaid Health birth control option was recently featured in the September 26, 2019 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine in a letter to the editor titled, “A Study of Telecontraception”. Researchers Tara Jain, A.B., Eleanor B. Schwarz, M.D., and Ateev Mehrotra, M.D., M.P.H. found that Lemonaid Health and 8 other telemedicine companies provided high-quality care and evaluation with “adherence to CDC guidelines [that] may be higher than across in-person care visits.” This is good news and certainly what we expected at Lemonaid Health.

Will understanding work environment and organizational psychology help health care get better?

Our health care system is in crisis and needs significant change. So, I was excited to read Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum’s great February 2019 three part series in the New England Journal of Medicine and accompanied round table about teamwork in health care. Rosenbaum kicks off each piece with a story: how the Brigham’s and Women’s Hospital’s “shock team”, doctors of different specialties, worked seamlessly in a ‘remarkable interaction’, the failure of perfusionist to speak up during a heart transplant surgery when an error occurred and ultimately results in a preventable death of a young man, and a patient who was hospitalized 5 to 6 days longer because the different medical teams were “caught in an endless loop of passing the buck.” Each article then highlights classic research and findings by organizational psychologists and the social sciences to illustrate how we can learn and improve to make the care we provide […] Read More »
