Dr. Bill Frist and Joseph Fifer want to get inside your head, as they each debut podcasts devoted to their favorite subject: healthcare.
Frist, a former Senate majority leader and transplant surgeon, says the goal of “A Second Opinion” is to improve Americans’ healthcare knowledge.
Despite having the “best and brightest physicians” and treatment innovations, Frist said the U.S. healthcare system’s outcomes lag behind other developed nations. “In ‘A Second Opinion,’ we explore why we only get part of the equation right and hear from the smartest minds on what we can do to improve our healthcare system during a period of extreme fragmentation,” Frist said.
The first three episodes, which dropped in late July, featured former Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Aneesh Chopra, former U.S. chief technology officer.
