"Instead of trying to earn a spot on a talk show to help a person dealing with costly treatments for illness, perhaps it is best to lobby policymakers to pass legislation that impacts big numbers of patients dealing with the high costs of treatment, ultimately including that person. Perhaps encouraging businesses, institutions, and organizations to allot funds for health care programs is a more salient idea.
Talk shows end. The need to close the gap in medical funding does not."
Amanda LaMonica-Weier is a nurse practitioner.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Fund this: Policies can fill medical funding gaps for all."

This episode is sponsored by Athelas, the number one provider of remote patient monitoring.
Did you know more than 65 percent of doctors are actively investing in remote patient monitoring?
That’s because RPM is the fastest-growing segment in health care today. And for good reason:
RPM boosts patient outcomes through preventative care. In fact, a recent study by the VA showed that implementing RPM at a practice can reduce hospital readmission rates by as much as 25 percent, saving more than $20,000 per patient in medical costs.
If you’re not investing in RPM, you’re missing out. Luckily, Athelas can help you roll out RPM end-to-end. They provide devices to your patients, handle 100 percent of billing, and even provide a team of nurses to monitor patient vitals for you. All at zero net cost to your practice.
Try out RPM for your practice by going to KevinMD.com/tryrpm.
