Show Overview

Relentless Health Value is a weekly podcast hosted by Stacey Richter for healthcare decision makers and change agents — people who are passionate about improving healthcare in this country. It is a frequent refrain that Relentless Health Value “influences the influencers.” In fact, our host, Stacey Richter, won the “Healthcare Influencer of the Year” award from the Validation Institute in June, 2023.

Our mission is to help healthcare decision makers make better decisions; decisions that truly put the patient first. Too often, we in the healthcare industry find ourselves silo’ed. We often only speak with others in our same stakeholder vertical or those attempting to get something out of us who may skew our perspective more than broaden it. This leads to well-intentioned decision-making that ultimately fails because it does not take into account the larger context, ecosystem, and all the perverse and unintuitive incentives therein.

Listeners tune in to Relentless Health Value to learn more than is possible in their day-to-day. They wish to learn about new tools and ideas to improve the quality, equity and value of healthcare in this country. They tune in to understand downstream consequences of decisions that seem very logical, but ultimately do harm.

Listeners receive an educational perspective from our host as well as incredible guests from all over the country. They gain insights and understanding that help them frame their own persuasive arguments drive change throughout their own organizations or spheres of influence.

It is important to note that the audience who tunes in to Relentless Health Value are wonderfully loyal, smart, action-oriented, and trust us to share accurate information free from marketing spin. We are seen as being transparent and honest, and we are very proud to maintain this reputation. One reviewer wrote that he listens each week because Relentless Health Value presents a “scrupulously fair” accounting of the issues.

“Scrupulously Fair”

Relentless Health Value podcasts frequently focus on helping:

  • more clinicians and others recognize the value of integrated, coordinated care and what can be accomplished via collaboration — including the perils of patients falling into caregaps from both an equity and outcomes perspectives.
  • more decision-makers appreciate the dynamics in the specialty pharmacy market and are strategically better prepared to improve patient/member experience and reduce financial exposure
  • more appreciation for transformative primary care, or really just excellent primary care in general
  • more decision-makers who work at traditional payers, PBMs, pharma and hospitals understand the impact of decisions they are making in ways that may help them help their organizations do better by members or patients
  • more self-insured employers to see the vital importance of managing their healthcare benefits at the c-suite level and gaining insight into how to do so
