Jain is a thought leader and frequent speaker on SDOH, social care and health equity. To help you get ready for the PQA Leadership Summit, here are seven articles from the last year featuring Jain’s perspectives on these issues.

  1. Healthcare Disruptors: Improving Care for the Elderly, MedPage Today (September 23, 2020)
    "When you think about seniors and why they end up losing their independence and frankly, their health, over time, it's because we don't make it easy for patients to remain independent and healthy at home. We have to look at new models that think more holistically about patients and their needs."

  2. What startups are missing when they talk about the 'consumer' experience, MobiHealthNews (September 22, 2020)
    “I think one of the biggest challenges we have is, we treat the consumer experience as if it is a singular experience for all consumers. But the reality is, consumers in this country are as diverse as this country is, and their needs are as different as they are.”

  3. ‘Seniors Will Never Embrace Telehealth’ And Other False Assumptions About American Healthcare, Forbes (Sept 21 2020)
    “And, with some of her age and condition-related mobility challenges, she especially appreciated that she didn’t have to travel to the doctor’s office, find parking nearby, locate his office in an unfamiliar building and languish in a waiting room — all for a 20 minute visit.”

  4. The Key to Solving Our Loneliness Epidemic Is a New Social Compact, Forbes (August 4, 2020)
    “Healthcare can’t fix the loneliness problem. Nor can well-intentioned nonprofits. They can ameliorate its symptoms and reduce its severity, but ultimately, it’s up to each and every one of us to create our own interventions to end this epidemic of isolation.”

  5. SCAN CEO Sachin Jain: Health Care on the Cusp of a Revolution, Hospice News (July 17, 2020)
    “More and more people are accepting of care being delivered in the home, which I think gives us an extra pair of eyes and ears in terms of what patients have as unmet needs”

  6. Coronavirus in Context: What Does Post-COVID-19 Health Care Look Like?, WebMD (May 14, 2020)
    “I think, from a consumer perspective, one of the most dramatic changes that we're going to see is a move away from bricks and mortar health care. … And I think what we're seeing now is that consumer preferences are changing dramatically, as a lot of office practices are moving to telemedicine.”

  7. Why every drug should have a social-care strategy (but most don’t), MM+M (September 5, 2019)
    “[People’s] most important moments are the ones that happen outside of the healthcare system. The question for people interested in creating change is, ‘How do we actually touch and influence patients when they’re not interfacing with the healthcare delivery system?’”
