Solving Healthcare Podcast

Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng cares for the sickest of the sick in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Ottawa Hospital.  His research focuses on making the ICU more efficient and improving access to palliative care services.  To achieve this, he founded the Resource Optimization Network, a multidisciplinary research group working to reduce health spending in this area without compromising care.  Dr. K, as he is fondly called, is a leading contributor helping the department to achieve its vision of shaping the future of Medicine.

In association with the Ottawa Department of Medicine and the Resource Optimization Network, Solving Healthcare is a podcast series featuring interviews and discussions on topics related to improving healthcare delivery in Canada based on the values of cost-effectiveness, dignity and justice in healthcare. The podcasts will challenge the status quo and explore gaps, assumptions and different perspectives in the pursuit of finding solutions to the problems in Canada’s healthcare system.

    So thankful for this podcast! I’m a mother of a child with a rare genetic disease followed by both Sick Kids and CHEO and am still learning to navigate the system with all of its imperfections. It’s great to hear these episodes with such unique perspectives from both doctors and patients with the common goal of improving our healthcare system. 🙂
