Highlights from the episode include a discussion of Victoria’s start in pharmacy and how a standout moment in her career highlighted the teaching abilities that she thought she might never use as a pharmacist, how Victoria discovered her passion for community paramedicine and mobile integrated healthcare, and how she moved her idea for Mobile Health Consultants from an idea to a business.
In an ideal world, healthcare would be accessible to all.
But we don't live in an ideal world.
In fact, we live in a world where lots of people are uninsured, have no primary care doctor, or, for whatever reason, can’t get to their doctor.
These people go months, years, or even decades without the care they need. Their conditions worsen, and they get stuck in a vicious cycle of calling 911 to get emergency care and then being told to follow up with their primary care doctor, which they obviously can't do.
Today's guest, the renowned pharmacist Victoria Reinhartz, recognized this problem and decided to tackle it hands-on. She established Mobile Health Consultants, a company that trains and develops mobilized healthcare teams that visit and treat patients proactively, breaking this cycle. Victoria has done something truly incredible with her PharmD, and today, she is here to tell us about her journey from retail pharmacy to community paramedicine and building something that didn't even exist before. Tune in!
Health Care Now Radio with Dr. Nick
During the pandemic there were some significant shortage problems with access to ventilators and oxygen supplies which extended into the community as we learned more about the disease, its biomarkers, and signals, in particular your blood oxygenation. The pulse oximeter was another item that disappeared off the shelves with panic buying. Unfortunately, like many other discoveries during the pandemic, this one exposed another gaping hole inequitable access to healthcare. In development and testing they failed to include a balance presentation of our population to include the wide range of skin colors and ethnic groups. So while we await progress in the development of new devices and approaches to non-invasive monitoring of blood oxygenation it is essential to raise awareness of the challenges and discrepancies in the accuracy of the current devices.

A Conversation on ET3 and MIH Models with Adam Patterson, CAD
“Evaluating effectiveness of and team adherence to triage protocols, as well as disease outcomes with chronic disease management can be excellent metrics for success. It would also be highly beneficial to provide data on enhanced medication adherence, which alone could significantly impact hospital re-admittance and healthcare expenses. —Reinhartz”
“The pharmacist’s evaluation discovered [the patient] had Stage 4 chronic kidney disease and was taking several unsafe medications. Reinhartz discontinued one of them, which resolved the sedation. For recurring gout attacks, [Reinhartz] also requested a switch from NSAID therapy to colchicine. This gave the patient an option to self-treat the painful attacks at home— one less reason to visit the ED.”
