  • National report measures excessive drinking by county
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Where you live matters. A new report shows excessive drinking behaviors range from 3% to 56% prevalence, depending on the county. A compilation of county-level measures from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin has identified that premature death rates have been slowly declining across the nation. Over 60 percent of counties have seen some level of improvement in premature death in the six years that the organizations have been tracking the measures. While this year’s County Health Rankings & Roadmaps evaluated variables from poverty and violent crime to long commutes and air pollution, several behavioral health data points are included in the rankings. read more

  • Create patient-centered experiences
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: As the industry grows, so too does the expectation for patient-centered care delivery. I recently attended a screening of the documentary “Most Likely to Succeed” at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The point of the movie was to demonstrate that the educational system in the United States hasn’t changed in more than a century, but it needs to change now more than ever. We live in a world where information is easy to look up online, so memorizing facts—especially for a standardized test—isn’t the highly valued competency it once was. read more
