Healthcare’s Disruptive Transition: Millenials and their Influence on the Industry

image006We tend to associate Millennials with the proliferation of technology; however, all the key technology improvements that we are witnessing today were effectively developed during the life of the trailing edge Baby Boomers (1956 to 1966). We the “trailing-edge” are the technology generation.

Our children, Millennials, have taken to technology and the creation of applications, at a ferocious rate. Few have used, let alone remember, the typewriter; they are more familiar with the computer keyboard introduced while in grade school.

These Millennials are starting to enter the healthcare system en masse. The leading edge of the Millennials today are 37 years old. They don’t function well without technology and as they enter healthcare, along with their parent’s high healthcare consumption years, healthcare is facing an inflection point and technology is the only answer.

We see Millennials beginning to question everything… I suppose you might say that we taught them right! Millennials are used to sharing their profile information across multiple platforms by simply entering a password and clicking a button.

Hence, MU2 is not meaningful to MACRA (Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015) and the associated inefficiencies have potentially cost the industry billions of dollar.

Provia Labs / Store-a-tooth hold’s its First “Family Appreciation Day”

Provia Labs FAD 1Provia labs held a special events day, inviting select customers, employees, as well as their families to a fun filled luncheon. Showcasing different segments of Store-a-tooth’s client base, the day was captured by a film crew and included interviews with different families.

Included was a family who had an adopted daughter, so they never had the ability to bank cord blood. Another family had a child with Type 1 Diabetes, who hadn’t banked cord blood and explained why they now regret it. They see Provia as a second chance.

A third family was a dad with his college age son studying Microbiology. The son told the parents about stem cell banking when he was having his wisdom teeth out, and now they are the strongest advocates.

Prior to the event, CEO Howard Greenman instructed employees to group into teams, “Apprentice Style” , and pick a project manager, name the team, and develop an activity for the luncheon – winning team gets a prize.

  1. Team “Pulp Fiction” created a dental/stem cell jeopardy game
  2. Team “Dr. D-Ciduous” created a photo booth for people to take pics (with lab props)
  3. Team “Lab Olympics” created a contest/tournament to race to fill pipette tips into a rack

Prove featured in CNN article about dental stem cells

CNN_International_logo_2014Provia Labs, Grace Century’s dental stem cell storage system portfolio project, has been features in an article on CNN on how dental cells could represent the next stage in the development of the emerging science of stem cell treatment.

The article, which is a lengthy and comprehensive feature, includes contributions from Dr. Joseph C. Laning, chief technology officer of Provia Laboratories LLC. The piece tries to balance the increasingly rigorous scientific case for the increased potential of stem cells as a method of treating complex disorders like multiple sclerosis (MS) and traumatic brain injury, with some more cautious views from the scientific community.

Scott Wolf, President and Director of Research for Grace Century, commented “The fact that our portfolio project, Provia labs, has made it to CNN, simply serves to highlight the traction that stem cells and their significant future potential for the treatment of many conditions has gained in the medical world. Whilst the article includes the views of some of the more skeptical members of the community, it should be noted that The President of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Jade Miller endorses the storage of baby teeth / Wisdom teeth and has done so himself for his family. In addition, the opinion of professional medical bodies is no guarantee of anything as Dr. N (Advisor for Provia) discovered for himself with regard to the National Bone Registry as we reported on our blog article of last May.
