I teach because it is my soul purpose; to share this practice is to do the work of my heart. I am, ultimately, only a guide. My role is to create the space so that you can hear more clearly the voice of your real Teacher, your wisdom. It's that experience that transforms the physical practice into one that empowers body, mind, and Spirit.
ChenMed is revolutionizing healthcare and it's to bring light to some of the darkest and most marginalized and forgotten communities in America. You know what most people don't realize is in any given city in America today, you have a zip code in which the average life expectancy is 20 to 30 years less than the wealthiest neighborhoods in that exact same city.
forward to it. Just finish your book and I'm looking forward to talking about the book. I'm also looking forward to talking about value based care. So much is going on in healthcare right now. A lot of challenges, and there are some that are struggling to make transitions. They're saying they're trying to make a transition to value based care and they're making it's real challenging. So, we're gonna talk that, we're gonna talk a lot of things, but before we get there the book is called The Calling, A Memoir of Family, faith, and the Future of Healthcare. And you and your brother wrote this book. What was it like to write a.
ChenMed is revolutionizing, healthcare and it's to bring light to some of the darkest and most marginalized and forgotten communities in America. You know what most people don't realize is in any given city in America today, you have a zip code in which the average life expectancy is 20 to 30 years less than the wealthiest neighborhoods in that exact same city, sometimes separated only by three miles.
With a list of the most love, America's most love workplace. So if you think about Fortune magazines, about the impact you can make, right? To change the world list on Newsweek Magazine, they wanna say, well, how do your employees like? Being there at Chen Med for the second year in a row, we are the number one healthcare provider on that list, and we moved up to some in the thirties where we were in the first year, still number one in healthcare to this year being number eight in, of course, still number one in all of healthcare. So certainly proud of what the team has been able to accomplish.
And then we also realized it's in general very ineffective. And all of these things I just talked about, expensive on, coordinated, ineffective. It's far worse for those who are under. If you don't have great access, you live in the wrong neighborhood, you have one parent instead of two parents, you have the color of your skin is not correct.
You have a have a blue collar background. It doesn't work for you and for your families, and it gets worse as you get older. And so we were determined to help others avoid the suffering. You started with one medical center and we wanted to demonstrate could we change? The way the healthcare is delivered, rather than waiting for people to get really sick and almost dying, and then rush in there and try to rescue them and then charge 'em a whole bunch of money.
it, it's amazing. You actually see these patients more often. In fact, you tell a story in the book. Which actually doesn't reflect on you all that well, but it's essentially that you saw a patient and you're like, Hey, yeah, I'll see you in a couple of weeks. And you did the normal thing like, Hey, here's your meds. I'll see you in a couple weeks. And that didn't turn out so well. And I, and I think it was just your front desk person essentially looked at you and said, Hey, that's not the way we do things here,
And you said, Hey, can you create a system that fundamentally disrupts. Healthcare in the United States today. And by the way, this disrupts your your revenue model. The answer is they won't be able to do it. And I, and also they're consolidating, so they're getting more complex as well, so that makes it even more difficult for them to transform.
? ? Conference season is upon us and our this week, health team and I will be at the Chime Fall forum celebrating their 30th year in San Antonio. And we're also gonna be at the HLTH conference, HLTH in Las Vegas the following week. While at these events, we're gonna be recording our favorite show on the road, which is interviews in action. And as you know, what we do is we grab leaders from health systems, healthcare leaders from across the country. And we capture 10 to 15 minute conversations with them to hear what's going on, what they're excited about, what are their priorities, and those kinds of things. It's a great way for you to catch up very quickly on what other health systems are thinking and doing across the industry. We actually air this on the community channel this week, Health Community. It's the green one. So if you go out onto your podcast listener of choice and do a search. This channel is also where community members like yourselves have been invited to do interviews of their peers. So check those out as well. You can subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. Look forward to catching you on our interviews and action. ? ?
so you have to partner with acute care systems and you, you talked about the story with your father, and I mean, obviously having physicians in the family, you were able to identify some things, and that's one of the biggest frustrations when people are sitting there in the hospital and they're like, I, I, I don't know what to do, how I don't know what to do.
It's nmp not my problem, it's somebody else's problem. So the balls are being dropped. We do not do that, and we work closely. Now what's happening now is hospitals are kicking our doctors outta the hospital. Sometimes you have, you have good hospitals that are like, Hey, let me figure out how we can work together in taking better care of your patients.
I've been told not to use the word reprogram, so, okay. But, but but great concept, and I know you have a technology background and I, I'm crazy about tech as well, so I love the word programming, but you know, in reality selection is absolutely critical. I mean, the number of people that wanna join the ChenMed organization, we are America's most loved workplace two years in a row, in healthcare Where love is supposed to be really critical. Okay? And so being number one in the country, two years in a row means you have to select for the right people. And so we are absolutely looking for the right people. We're looking for mission-driven people, people who, who really care about bringing light to the darkness, not just talking about it, not ignoring it, but actually bringing light every day to the darkness.
The reason why you didn't get a trophy this last season is because in the real world, you only get a trophy for winning for a result unless you stay in. healthcare If you're in fee for service healthcare, you get a trophy for showing up. A doctor, a hospital system gets paid. You're a surgeon, whether they make a mistake, they kill your mom, or they fix you, it doesn't matter.
Poor people living shorter. So we have massive inequities being created in healthcare and getting worse. And then number three, during a time where costs are going up, prices are going up, you're in the tech of business tech. Every year you get more for your. You look at your flat screen TVs for $600, you can get this massive big screen, flat screen TV that used to cost $10,000 for something that was a quarter of the stop.
? ? We've talked about this on the show, healthcare is the only place where we've invested more and more money in technology and we get less and less efficient for whatever reason. And actually the, the experience for the clinicians gets worse and worse. I do wanna talk to you about the technology cuz as I was reading your book, proprietary EHR System, And that that sets off a few things as I think about it.
And it's, you're not gonna work long hours to do that. And so it, it's just, it's really, really difficult. Now, back to your question about getting healthcare things the, the different systems to talk, there are systems that are great out there. They, they, they're, they, they're trying to do a great service to the community.
Do you know we double cancer survival rates at six months? If we came up with a. And I said to you, bill, I'm on your show. I have a drug here that doubles cancer survival rates at six months. That would be a trillion dollar drug. I didn't just say one. Cancer. Cancer as a whole, we double cancer survival rates.
They go, Chris, you have a solution here. Does many things. But just take for example, your cancer thing. You, you, you, you double cancer survival rates, or how about the fact that we believe that we extend life by five, seven or nine years? So tell me you now have a cure to add life and, and it's. So tell me how you're distributing it to the people who need it and are dying Every day and I go, yeah, over the next five years I might get to 3% and they look at me and they go, how do you, how do you sleep at night?
