Arlington, Va. – April 11, 2023 -- Surescripts, the nation’s leading health information network, has launched the second season of its award-winning podcast, There’s a Better Way: Smart Talk on Healthcare and Technology.

Listen to There’s a Better Way: Season 2 trailer.

Surescripts Chief Marketing Officer Melanie Marcus, returns as host with a whole new set of guests who are leading change and improving healthcare with a diverse set of experiences and perspectives, including, among others:

  • Micky Tripathi, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • Rina Shah, Pharm.D, Global Vice President, Pharmacy of the Future & Healthcare Strategy Segment at Walgreens
  • Brett Giroir M.D., Chief Executive Officer, Altesa BioSciences, Inc.

“The challenges facing healthcare run the gamut. Yet there’s one thing all of our podcast guests have in common -- stories of inspiration, innovation, partnership and hope for the future of healthcare,” said Marcus. “We can’t wait to share how these leaders are tackling growing challenges like how to best support the evolving role of pharmacists, improve access to clinical care for patients when alarming numbers of clinicians leave their practice and how to advance interoperability to bring relief to clinicians experiencing burnout while better informing patient care.”

Surescripts introduced There’s a Better Way: Smart Talk on Healthcare and Technology in July 2022, with visionary guests such as Mariann Yeager, Chief Executive Officer of the Sequoia Project, Lee Barrett, Chief Executive Officer of the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), Dr. Nele Jessel, Chief Medical Officer of athenahealth, Michele Belcher, former president of the National Community Pharmacists Association, Sam Lambson, Vice President of Interoperability for Oracle Cerner, and Colleen Lindholz, President of Kroger Health.
