I decided to encore this episode with Carly Eckert, MD, PhD(c), MPH, because I keep finding myself quoting Dr. Eckert in conversations, even a year later. First off, if you’re not familiar, a care gap is what happens when there is a bad transition of care. Patient has no idea what their dis...
One of the questions I often get asked is this (actually, it’s more of a comment usually than a question): Someone says, “Seems like this whole transformative primary care thing is pretty much just, let’s go back to the old country doctor. Let’s just have a single doctor out...
During the recording of episode 409 , where Larry Bauer was explaining some really cool and innovative bright spots in the healthcare industry created by physicians, we somehow got off on a tangent about an article in JAMA from 2010—and I was all in. Unfortunately, going all in on a topic that has ...

I am always on the lookout for newsletters, podcasts, books and articles to advance my understanding of the US healthcare system at an early stage of my career. Nothing has come close to what Stacey Richter consistently puts together for her listeners. The quality of guest, level of technical rigor, concision, and contextual significance across a huge swathe of topics is simply astounding. I’ve learned as much or more from RHV since I started listening in 2021 than from all the books I’ve read in the same period. This podcast is indispensable for any industry professional to keep with the times and to be a conscientious actor in the fraught system of today. Thank you, Stacey!
If you could only listen to one podcast on the transformation of healthcare this is the one. Stacey is amazing and right on point. Scott Conard,MD
I have recommended this podcast to literally hundreds of people (including onstage at our recent customer success summit). Anyone who cares about the sustainability of our healthcare system owes it to themselves to give RHV a permanent spot on their playlist. Always smart, often provocative, scrupulously fair, it’s well worth the listen
RHV is an amazing podcast and sorely needed in the healthcare community. I tell everyone about it because I’ve interacted with Stacey personally and know her passion isn’t just for the podcast but it’s the drive in what she does. I’m a recent listener and have learned so much from #399 & 400 her manefesto, episode 410 was packed with knowledge, #407 was great, etc. Let’s start a hundred RHV communities across the US where we implement small experiments so change is grass roots and ubiquitous. Then the status quo will concede.
I scoured the podcast world to find a healthcare industry podcast that offers intelligent, relevant, clear information and dialogue. I found it. Stacey and RHV cover the US healthcare industry across all sectors while managing to go deep within those sectors. Most importantly, she highlights how all of those sectors interact, supposedly w the patient at the center, while performing as businesses that are really driven by capitalism. Stacey is smart, very smart. Professionally produced with great guests, I never miss an episode.
RHV and Stacey Richter deliver easy to digest and understandable shows on all parts of the healthcare ecosystem. RHV and AhealthcareZ are my go tos for finding resources on any particular topic. I share both with the leadership of OVN (largest MSK network in America) routinely. Thank you Stacey!
I have my MPH and have worked in the field for over a decade but this show has clarified SO MANY concepts and “buzz words” into tangible frameworks for me. I even recommended it to my firm’s entire healthcare sector. Very well researched, facilitated, and accessible content—highly recommended!
Relentless Health Value connects the listener to the some of the most innovative, informative and important people in healthcare today. The topics are always pertinent and the guests are always engaging though leaders. The host, Stacey Richter, possesses deep understanding of our healthcare system and it shows in her unique insights. This podcast is a must listen if you want to understand where healthcare is today and the direction it is moving towards. ***I had originally written the above review a couple years ago. Stacey and her team continue to produce the best podcast in healthcare. The most recent episodes were home runs — really taking a deep dive into the incentives, decisions and motivations behind todays healthcare challenges. Always looking forward to the next episode.
It doesn’t take an expert to conclude that US healthcare is overpriced and often lacking in quality. But host Stacey Richter rounds up all the experts who can explain why we’re stuck in the healthcare quagmire we’re trapped in. We’ve got problems ranging from consolidated healthcare systems charging excessive prices, pharmacy benefit managers using rebates to short-change patients, and insurers failing to process claims correctly. It’s enough to make you throw up your hands in frustration, but the podcast also features many people who are working to make things right for patients and customers. There’s no one simple fix, but this podcast contains valuable insights on what actions can be taken to make things better for consumers and patients.
