In this episode, we have Ryan McCarthy, an internal medicine physician, who discovered writing as a way to cope with grief. His journey started with the death of his friend Dan from pancreatic cancer, which led him to write an essay chronicling Dan's life and his own grief process. During the pandemic, Ryan started jotting down his thoughts and observations on his phone's Notes app to cope with COVID trauma.
Writing helped Ryan process his emotions, gain self-awareness, and become emotionally lighter and more capable. He shares how writing also affected his medical practice and allowed him to connect with patients in a profound way, giving him a glimpse of health care's magic. Join us for Ryan's inspiring story of how writing transformed him into a better doctor.
Ryan McCarthy is an internal medicine physician.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "From grief to gratitude: How writing changed my life."
The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience.
Ambient intelligence augments human capabilities to make our lives easier. The applications are many, especially in health care. Ambient clinical intelligence is offsetting the most pressing challenges in health care today, such as burnout, physician shortages, physician and patient dissatisfaction, and underperforming financial outcomes, by applying the technology to clinical documentation.
The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician's review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS's top 20 emerging solutions.
