CareSouth Carolina’s Dr. Jeniqua Duncan Joins Acclaimed Taking the Pulse Podcast

June 3rd 2024

CareSouth Carolina’s Dr. Jeniqua Duncan, Chief of Value-Based Care, recently joined Matthew Roberts and Heather Matthews, hosts of the nationally-renowned Taking the Pulse Podcast. This episode delves into a range of critical healthcare topics, including CareSouth Carolina’s telehealth services, Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Clinical Information Management Systems (CIMS), and community health initiatives targeting diabetes.

During this insightful conversation, Dr. Duncan shared her expertise on the vital role of community healthcare centers, the importance of diversity in healthcare, and the impact of medical technology in improving patient outcomes.

“One of the easiest ways to make people comfortable is having some familiarity, and that could be gender, race, ethnicity, language…” said Dr. Duncan. She emphasized how diversity within clinical care teams enhances the ability of healthcare workers to connect with patients efficiently, fostering better healthcare experiences.

Dr. Duncan also highlighted the unique challenges faced by rural communities, stating, “In rural areas, their geographic isolation can lead to food deserts.” She discussed how this isolation contributes to higher rates of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Listeners are invited to tune into episode 193 of Taking the Pulse Podcast to gain a deeper understanding of these critical healthcare issues and learn more about the innovative work being done by CareSouth Carolina.
