Inside Health Care #92: Dr. Raymond Osarogiagbon & the Hope of Lung Cancer IPN Screenings
November 9, 2022 · David J. Smolar
In honor of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, on this episode of Inside Health Care we talk with Dr. Raymond Osarogiagbon about advances in lung cancer screening. The interview, sponsored by AstraZeneca, was recorded live at our 2022 Health Innovation Summit.
Dr. Osarogiagbon is Chief Scientist at Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corporation in Memphis, Tennessee. He is Director of the Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program and the Thoracic Oncology Research Group at the Baptist Cancer Center, and Principal Investigator of the Baptist Health System/Mid-South Minority-Underserved Consortium, NCORP. Dr. Osarogiagbon’s research centers on improving outcomes of cancer care through better care delivery systems and processes.
We think you’ll be interested in The Importance of Lung Cancer Screening, an on-demand course from our 2022 Quality Innovation Series, led in part by our Vice President for Performance Measurement, Dr. Mary Barton.
And consider these two webinars from the Academy of Oncology Nurse and Patient Navigators. “The Role of Oncology Nurse Navigators in the Implementation of the Updated Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines” is from September, and “Navigating the Updated Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines: The Role of Oncology Nurses and Nurse Navigators in the Implementation of a Lung Cancer Screening Program” was released at the end of October.
We’ll hear another interview that was also recorded live at our Health Innovation Summit: Dr. Juan Espinoza discusses topics from the panel he co-hosted, Digital Reshaping of the Diabetes Health-Care Ecosystem. (Also on that panel was Dr. Osagie Ebekozien, whose interview was Episode 7 of our limited series, “A View from the Summit.”)
Dr. Espinoza is a pediatrician at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, where he focuses on developing medical devices, health information systems and patient-generated health data. His work’s guiding principle is that data and technology have the potential to narrow the health gap faced by underserved communities around the world.
Later, in our “Fast Facts” segment, we give you quick stats from the CDC on lung cancer prevention.
