Decoding Healthcare

Podcast: A street-level view of community health

  | August 15, 2018

This episode finds our podcast team bouncing – virtually – from the villages of Kenya to the streets of Harlem for an exploration of healthcare's “missing layer.”

Our travel guide is population health superstar Prabhjot Singh, M.D., a practicing physician who is also director of the Arnhold Institute for Global Health and chair of the department of Health System Design and Global Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Prabhjot is uniquely positioned to connect the dots between a community-level view of care and the structural changes needed in the U.S. at the system and policy level.

Drawing from the rich reservoir of stories that fill his compelling book, Dying and Living in the Neighborhood: A Street-Level View of America's Healthcare Promise, Prabhjot takes us outside the walls of the hospital to paint a vision of community-based healthcare that's designed to meet people where, and how, they live.

Join Prabhjot, athenahealth's CMO Kevin Ban, M.D., and podcast guest host Jessica Sweeney-Platt as they offer “street-level” ideas and inspiration for tackling some of America's toughest health challenges.
