Launch Trailer for The Risky Health Care Business Podcast
Welcome to The Risky Health Care Business Podcast, where we help you prepare for the future by sharing stories, insights, and skills from expert voices in and around the United States health care world. I'm your host, Scott Nelson, a guy that grew up in Ohio and has been working all over the United States during my 20 plus year and counting career in the health care industry. I'm on a mission to inform, educate, and help organizations and individuals throughout the dental, medical, and veterinary health care industry with risk while hopefully having some fun along the way.
But how did I get on this risk mission? It began back in the spring of 2020. COVID was exploding all over the world, including the United States. The future was unknown because of an unanticipated adverse event. Hospitals were treating more patients than capacity limits. Health care practices were forced to close - some temporarily, some permanently - prompting banks and other financial institutions to receive calls from health care providers all over the country saying they would not be able to pay their loans. An unanticipated adverse event can happen at any time and take any form. COVID show the importance of planning and preparation.
So what is risk in health care? Where is it? How can you prepare for risk and overcome it? What are the challenges facing participants in the health care industry today. We're in a transformational time in health care. Have our models evolved to meet the moment? Risk can no longer be ignored. A risk versus reward mentality must also be coupled with risk versus regret. Gambling that an adverse event will never happen is not a viable approach to running a health care business. It's time to transform the model from reactive to proactive.
