Digital Orthopaedics Conference (DOCSF)

Stefano Bini, M.D.

The Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF) was created to bridge the worlds of digital health and clinical orthopaedics and thereby catalyze the adoption of technology in musculoskeletal care. This podcast series features key speakers and highlights from the live event. Why orthopaedics? We believe that embedding digital technologies in a narrow integrated vertical is more likely to affect change than targeting one-fifth of the U.S. economy. We also believe that if a conference is to move the ball forward, it needs to target leaders who are positioned to drive change. These leaders want a conference that is practical, identifies solutions to real problems, and that provides perspective from people outside their normal circle. To this end, we invite Health Care, Industry, Finance, Entrepreneurs and Payers to participate. The DOCSF program design uses many educational formats including ‘case studies’ to illustrate success and a broad panel of experts to ask tough questions. And because change does not happen in a vacuum, we include leadership, policy and design segments in the program. Find out more, and register for our next conference, by visiting docsf.health.

In this fifth and final episode of the Enneagram Series; We will discover the last Enneagram triad by the hand of the Trilogy Effect team. Types 5, 6, and 7 are often inclined to pursue a career that involves researching!   Drawn to knowledge and with an intense intellectual curiosity, these three types go to analysis and research when they are in fear. Type 5s are good at detaching themselves from the situation to analyze it and have multiple perspectives. Types 6, on the other hand, are absolutely loyal, responsible, and community-oriented. Finally, 7s don’t seem like a head center type because they like to take action by educating themselves. These three types could use exercises like meditation to calm their minds. Thank you for listening to our Enneagram Series; we hope you enjoyed and learned a lot about yourself and the leaders around you!

In this episode, we cover types 2, 3, and 4, who are always lead by their heart. Leaders identified within these types tend to be more on the human side of things than on the organizational-business side. Type 2 leaders are usually fantastic because they try to take care of everything and everyone, including themselves. Type 3 is focused on externally performing and achieving tasks. Type 4 is extremely creative and doesn’t like to be constrained; they want to have a human connection with everyone around them. These three types of the Enneagram have the same driver: am I valuable, and how do I show I am? Have you identified which type of leader you might be? Be sure to listen and figure out through these episodes!

In this episode, we will be talking about the impulsive, gut-oriented Enneagram types 1, 8, and 9. These three types are very grounded in their belly center. With the help of the Trilogy Effect team, we dive into how each type works. Having boundaries is an essential part of types 1, 8, and 9. Instinctive center types always look at reality through filtered glasses asking themselves: is this just, right and fair? Type 8 usually takes action, type 9 wants everything to be in peace, type 1 needs everything to be perfect, but in the end, they always search for autonomy within the structure. Tune in to this episode to learn more about these three types of the first Enneagram Triad!

Great leaders are those who can use the three centers of intelligence to their advantage.  In this episode, we will define the concept of embodiment and its relationship with the Enneagram. There are three intelligence centers in the body: head, heart, and belly. Everyone has an unconscious preference for one of them. Getting to know each of those centers will help leaders tap into their power at the same time. The nine types of the Enneagram can be group into three triads according to the intelligence centers. Once the dominant type is identified, knowing the strengths and weaknesses is straightforward.  Join this episode and see if you can recognize which triad you are from!

How are biases present in orthopedic surgery? This is the main discussion topic with Dr. Melissa Zimel, Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Oncology at UCSF. Bias is defined as prejudice in favor of or against someone or something. She reflects on the concept of conscious and unconscious bias too, and the implications it can have on the community. She shares that one can train its brain to identify these implicit biases and then applies this to an orthopedic surgeon. Biases are normal; sometimes, we don’t even know we have them. Dr. Zimel shares her thoughts about this topic, not only in private practice or academic settings; But on hiring processes, school applications, and more.  Biases are intrinsic to human nature. However, we can work to be more aware and eradicate them to improve our practice.

Heroes are characters, fiction or real, who stand bravely in the face of danger, filled with courage, determination, and strength to overcome a challenging situation. Before COVID-19, when we think of heroes, we probably think of Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela, Batman, and Superman as heroes.  The arrival of COVID-19 shifted our perspective. Today, health care workers on the front lines fighting the pandemic are being called heroes. As they serve in the thick of the battle, risking their lives to cure and restore to health those who have contacted the virus, we witness their compassion and tenacity. But it's not the end of the story.

When you think of design, you think of marketing, business, commerce, products, and probably architecture. The last place you'd expect to find a global design company is at a digital orthopedics conference. What is a global design brand doing in a DocSF summit, especially one that's focused on Covid19? Design thinking enhances creativity, and we all need a spark of creativity to come up with innovative solutions. In this DocSF scenario, host Dr. Stefano Bini thought bringing design to health leaders' audience would encourage creativity in implementing digital solutions. The amazing IDEO team offered to provide a creative solution for a COVID19 related concern. Dennis Boyle and Talya Brettler made the exciting presentation. They discuss design sprint, IDEO's unique brainstorming technique, framing questions with AMW questions, collaboration, and leveraging technology to develop innovative solutions. From apps that ensure you are following social distancing to a product that detects dirt after hand washing, all the concepts presented are interesting.

How does it feel to be a healthcare professional in one of the worst-hit regions of the Covid19 pandemic? In this episode, we hear the moving story straight from Dr. Luigi Zagra, Senior Orthopedic Surgeon at IRCCS Galeazzi, in Lombardy, Italy. Lombardy was the center of the coronavirus outbreak in February, and it has the highest number of deaths because of COVID-19 in Italy. Dr. Luigi recounts the harrowing experience of living in Milan and being a healthcare provider amid the continually rising number of deaths. He shares the impact of Covid19 on his hospital's clinical practice, the restrictive measures to curb the spread of the virus, and the temporary hold on elective orthopedic surgery, total joint arthroplasty, and other operations. Dr. Luigi also relays the massive need for testing and extraordinary communication levels on the various medical teams. Most importantly, he brings to our attention the number of medical colleagues who lost their lives in the service and raised an important question: "Why did I choose to be in the helping professions?". This is one podcast interview you don't want to miss, so listen to the full episode!   About today's Guest: Luigi Zagra is the Head of the Hip Department at IRCCS Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute, Milan, Italy, and Adjunct Professor at Università degli Studi of Milan.

This episode features a conversation with Dr. Luigi Zagra. As you will hear in his introduction, he is a very well-known orthopaedic surgeon who runs one of the largest orthopaedic hospitals in Europe. Prior to covid-19, they performed over 4,000 orthopaedic procedures a year. Today they perform only emergent surgery and their hospital is primarily used to care for sick patients. On the podcast, I asked him to focus on the impact Covid has had on operations at their hospital and their arthritic patients. Some of these solutions, only 2 weeks ago, seemed unthinkable in a region with arguably one of the most advanced healthcare systems in Europe.

On Episode 11 of Season 3, we are presenting the third of our case studies. Our third company is aptly named Inspiren, a hybrid sensing platform that leverages computer vision, environmental sensing, and IoT connectivity to analyze, understand and respond to the patient’s physical environment. It is a company that caught our attention because of two reasons: the first is that it solves a real problem we see everyday in the hospital, and the second is that its founder is a nurse. Who better than a nurse to solve a nursing problem? Here to inspire us about Inspiren is the Founder and CEO Michael Wang RN, in conversation with Mike Ryan, Chair of the advisory board at DOCSF, on the DOCSF stage.
