Interview with Navigating Cancer CEO Bill Bunker

Cancer is tough on patients and families. And while a whole array of physicians, health plans and pharma companies are poised to help, it’s a challenge to bring everyone together. Navigating Cancer focuses on enabling the best care for patients, with a particular emphasis on the 95+ percent of the time that they’re not in the office.

In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, Navigating Cancer CEO Bill Bunker describes how the company is leveraging workflow, data and mobile to improve the care experience. We also discuss the promise of value based care for cancer and the challenge of medication adherence for oral oncolytics.

In his spare time, Bill’s been reading books such as When All is Said by Anne Griffin and Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, which he describes as a messy and chaotic read –but worth the effort.

Interview with 2Life Communities CEO Amy Schectman

Amy Schectman cut her teeth in state government, where her excellence in writing and thinking got her appointed to key task forces on issues like higher education and prison overcrowding. Over the last decade as CEO of 2Life Communities (formerly Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly), Amy has improved the lives of thousands of older adults with first-rate living quarters and activities.

Amy professionalized the real estate team at 2Life, enabling the organization to open a new affordable housing complex nearly every year. During my time as president of Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline, MA I worked closely with Amy to construct a beautiful new affordable, independent living building on the synagogue campus.

In the last year, she’s led an unbelievably successful effort to keep COVID away from 2Life.

Amy’s mother and the Gray Panthers were early influences, and she looks back fondly on her summer camp experiences, Johns Hopkins and MIT. She’s charging ahead into the future, with plans to address the middle income market and leverage technology along with the human touch.

She makes time for reading every night, with recent favorites The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 ¼ Years Old, the Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante, Caste by Isabel Wilkerson, and The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family and Defiance During the Blitz by Erik Larson.

Interview with Cantor Group CEO, Dr. Michael Cantor

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.

Podcast interview with Papa CEO Andrew Parker

Andrew Parker, Papa CEO

Andrew Parker is a son of South Florida. He’s also the son and grandson of entrepreneurs and an independent spirit, so it was pretty clear what career path he’d ultimately pursue. Papa –which offers Family on Demand– was born from Andrew’s experience arranging a youthful pal for his own Papa, a fairly demanding guy, at least in Andrew’s telling. When Papa was pleased with the service, Andrew knew it would appeal more broadly.

After being selected for Y Combinator and raising investment funds, it was off to the races. Papa Pals have been providing companionship and help with everyday tasks, combatting loneliness, sustaining independence, and making life more fun. The newly launched Papa Health adds Papa Docs to the mix, helping seniors navigate primary care, urgent care and manage their chronic conditions.

In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, Andrew and I discuss his early career in telehealth, the founding of Papa, and experiences during the pandemic.

Andrew didn’t grow up as a big reader, and he still prefers audio books to the printed word. His favorite book, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius is a classic in the true sense of the word.

Interview with CorEvitas CEO Raymond Hill

Ray Hill, CorEvitas CEO

Ray Hill grew up on a farm and took up rowing in college. So he’s always been a hard worker and an early riser. In this edition of the HealthBiz podcast, Ray brings us up to date on progress at CorEvitas. As CEO and Chairman he’s led the company’s expansion from a singular rheumatoid arthritis registry to a broader autoimmune and inflammatory company with registries, real world evidence, biorepositories, and patient engagement capabilities.

I was partial to the company’s former name, Corrona, but for some reason that one didn’t have the right connotations for the pandemic era. When not focused on CorEvitas, Ray continues to row and to cycle. And he’s also chair of Row New York, which combines rowing and academics for kids who not otherwise have access.  Ray is proud of Row NY’s 99% graduation rate from HS and 85% graduation rate from four year colleges, a remarkable record.
