Welcome to the HealthChangers podcast, presented by Cambia Health Solutions, where we share real stories of health care transformation from those experiencing it and those helping to make health care more personalized.
On this episode, we’re joined by Burt Rosen, Chief Marketing Officer for HealthSparq, a Cambia company that helps peoples make smarter health care choices with industry-first transparency tools. Our other guest, Susannah Meadows, is a journalist and author who has written for Newsweek and The New York Times. Susannah recently published a book, The Other Side of Impossible, about ordinary people who faced daunting medical challenges, but didn’t give up.
Susannah and Burt have something in common—they are both patient advocates. They both have worked with, and at times beyond, the health care system to advocate for critical treatments for themselves and loved ones. In this episode, we talk with Burt and Susannah about this growing movement of patient advocates, why it’s happening now, and what it’s like to be an advocate.
To build awareness about patient advocacy and patient experience, Burt has created a conference called What’s the Fix?, happening June 14, 2017. Susannah will be a keynote speaker. You can attend this free conference in Seattle at the Cambia Grove, or via livestream. REGISTER HERE
