Dr. Mike Cantor grew up in a healthcare home. His dad was a solo practice family physician and his mom worked in the practice. He developed an interest in healthcare policy from an early age, as he heard his dad describe the challenges serving his patients and dealing with insurance companies. As a geriatrician and an attorney, Mike focused on care for the elderly.
I met Mike years when he was chief medical officer at NEQCA and have stayed in touch with him over the years. He’s an expert on the healthcare system, so I decided to tap into his thoughts about the last year of the pandemic.
In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, Mike and I talk about the impact of digital technologies in bringing healthcare closer to patients, how payment systems are changing to support telehealth and home care, what’s new in nursing homes, and how disparities are baked into the system.
