          business or businesses;

          initial business combination;



  •   our pool of prospective target businesses;



     •    our ability to consummate our initial business combination due to the
          uncertainty resulting from the ongoing

          pandemic and other events (such as terrorist attacks, natural disasters
          or other significant outbreaks of infectious diseases);

There can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those anticipated by us. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors which could cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described under the heading “Risk Factors” in our other US Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Insight

We are a blank check company incorporated on September 11, 2020 like a Cayman Islands exempt corporation for the purpose of effecting a merger, stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. We are an emerging growth company and as such we are subject to all of the risks associated with emerging growth companies.

Our sponsor is Population Health Investment Holding, Inc.a Cayman Islands
exempt company. Our registration statement for the IPO became effective on October 21, 2020. On November 20, 2020we have consummated the IPO of 17,250,000 units (the “Units” and, with respect to the Class A common stock included in the Units, the “Public Shares”), including an additional 2,250,000 Units to cover the over-allocations (the “Plus -Allocation Units”), $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of
$172.5 millionand incurring an offer fee of approximately $10.2 millioncomprising approximately $6.0 million in deferred underwriting fees.

Concurrently with the closing of the Initial Public Offering, we completed the private placement (“Private Placement”) of 3,633,333 warrants (each, a “Private Placement Warrant” and collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants” ), at the price of $1.50 per Private Placement Note with the Limited Partner, generating gross proceeds of approximately $5.5 million.


Upon the closing of the Initial Public Offering and the Private Placement,
$172.5 million ($10.00 per Unit) of the net proceeds of the Initial Public
Offering and certain of the proceeds of the Private Placement were placed in a
Trust Account, located in the United States with Continental Stock Transfer &
Trust Company acting as trustee, and invested only in U.S. "government
securities" within the meaning of Section 2(a)(16) of the Investment Company Act
having a maturity of 185 days or less or in money market funds meeting certain
conditions under Rule
2a-7
promulgated under the Investment Company Act which invest only in direct U.S.
government treasury obligations, as determined by the Company, until the earlier
of: (i) the completion of a Business Combination and (ii) the distribution of
the Trust Account as described below.

Our management has broad discretion with respect to the specific application of the net proceeds from the IPO and the sale of Private Placement Warrants, although substantially all of the net proceeds are for be applied generally to the effect of a business combination.


If we have not completed a Business Combination within 24 months from the
closing of the Initial Public Offering, or November 20, 2022 (the "Combination
Period"), we will (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up;
(ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days
thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a
per-share
price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the
Trust Account, including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account
and not previously released to the Company to pay its income taxes, if any (less
up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number
of the then-outstanding Public Shares, which redemption will completely
extinguish Public Shareholders' rights as shareholders (including the right to
receive further liquidation distributions, if any); and (iii) as promptly as
reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the
remaining shareholders and the board of directors, liquidate and dissolve,
subject in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii) to the Company's obligations under
Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and the requirements of
other applicable law.

Liquidity and going concern

From March 31, 2022we had about $130,000 in our operating bank accounts and a working capital deficit of approximately $456,000.

Prior to the completion of the IPO, our liquidity needs had been met by an inflow of $25,000 from our sponsor to cover certain offering costs in exchange for the issuance of Founder Shares, the loan of $300,000 of our sponsor under a promissory note (“note”), and the proceeds of completion of the private placement not held in the trust account. From March 31, 2022 the note remains in circulation. In addition, in order to fund transaction costs associated with a business combination, our sponsor may, but is not obligated to, provide us with working capital loans. To date, there was no amount outstanding under a working capital loan.

As part of the Company’s assessment of going concern considerations in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, “Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern”, management has determined that the liquidity condition, the date of the judicial liquidation and subsequent dissolution as well as an operating deficit raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying values ​​of assets or liabilities if the Company were to liquidate after November 20, 2022. Management continues to seek to complete a business combination prior to the mandatory liquidation date.

Management continues to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry and has concluded that while it is reasonably possible that the virus could have an adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and/ or the search for a target company, the specific impact is not readily determinable at the date of the financial statements included in this report. The summary financial statements included in this report do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

In February 2022the Russian Federation and Belarus started a military action with the country of Ukraine. As a result of this action, various nations, including United Statesinstituted economic sanctions against
Russian Federation and Belarus. The impact of this action and related sanctions on the global economy cannot be determined as of the date of this report. In addition, the specific impact of this action on our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows also cannot be determined as of the date of this report.

Operating results

All our activity since its creation until March 31, 2022 was in preparation for our formation and preparation for our IPO. We will not generate any operating income until the earliest closing and completion of our first business combination.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022we had a net income of about
$1.9 millioncomposed of approximately $2.2 million the change in fair value of derivative liabilities related to warrants, partially offset by approximately
$261,000 in general and administrative expenses, and approximately $10,000 the net loss of the investments held in the trust account.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021we had a net income of about
$1.8 millioncomposed of approximately $2.1 million the change in fair value of derivative liabilities related to warrants, and approximately $3,000 in net gain from investments held in the trust account, partially offset by approximately
$360,000 in general and administrative costs.

Contractual obligations

Registration and rights of shareholders

Holders of Founder Shares, Private Placement Warrants, Class A common stock underlying the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issuable upon conversion of the Working Capital Loans (and any Class A common stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants and warrants issuable upon conversion of working capital loans) are entitled to registration rights under a recording rights agreement. Holders of these securities have the right to make up to three requests, excluding simplified requests, that we register these securities. Such holders will be entitled to certain registration fees on demand and “piggyback”. We will pay for expenses incurred in filing such registration statements.

Subscription agreement


We granted the underwriters a
45-day
option from the final prospectus relating to the Initial Public Offering to
purchase up to 2,250,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, at
the Initial Public Offering price less the underwriting discounts and
commissions. On November 20, 2020, the underwriters fully exercised their
over-allotment option.

                                       21

Subscribers were entitled to a subscription discount of $0.20 per unit, or
$3.5 million in aggregate, paid upon closing of the IPO. Besides, $0.35 per unit, i.e. approximately $6.0 million in the aggregate will be payable to the underwriters for deferred underwriting commissions. The deferred commission will become payable to the underwriters from amounts held in the trust account only in the event that the Company completes a business combination, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement.

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make
estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities,
revenues and expenses. A summary of our significant accounting policies is
included in Note 2 to our condensed financial statements in Part I, Item 1 of
this Quarterly Report. Certain of our accounting policies are considered
critical, as these policies are the most important to the depiction of our
condensed financial statements and require significant, difficult or complex
judgments, often employing the use of estimates about the effects of matters
that are inherently uncertain. Such policies are summarized in the Management's
Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section
in our 2021 Annual Report on Form
10-K
filed with the SEC on March 30, 2022. There have been no significant changes in
the application of our critical accounting policies during the three months
ended March 31, 2022.

Recent accounting pronouncements

See note 2 of the unaudited summary financial statements included in part I, point 1 of this quarterly report for a discussion of recent accounting pronouncements.

Employment Act


The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the "JOBS Act") contains
provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for
qualifying public companies. We qualify as an "emerging growth company" and
under the JOBS Act will be allowed to comply with new or revised accounting
pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded)
companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting
standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting
standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required
for
non-emerging
growth companies. As a result, our unaudited condensed financial statements may
not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting
pronouncements as of public company effective dates. Additionally, we are in the
process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting
requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth
in the JOBS Act, if, as an "emerging growth company," we choose to rely on such
exemptions we may not be required to, among other things, (a) provide an
auditor's attestation report on our system of internal controls over financial
reporting pursuant to Section 404 of the JOBS Act, (b) provide all of the
compensation disclosure that may be required of
non-emerging
growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer
Protection Act, (c) comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the
Public Company Accounting and Oversight Board regarding mandatory audit firm
rotation or a supplement to the auditor's report providing additional
information about the audit and the unaudited condensed financial statements
(auditor discussion and analysis) and (d) disclose certain executive
compensation related items such as the correlation between executive
compensation and performance and comparisons of our Chief Executive Officer's
compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for a
period of five years following the IPO Closing Date or until we are no longer an
"emerging growth company," whichever is earlier.

In April, leaders and physicians from the University of Utah Health and Intermountain Healthcare came together to celebrate. Also among the participants were 11 first-year medical students, the inaugural cohort of the Intermountain Healthcare Population Health Researcher Program.

This first-of-its-kind medical education partnership between the University of Utah’s Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine and Intermountain Healthcare (IHC) is now one year old. Its goal: to improve health and well-being by training future physicians to provide high-quality care using an innovative population health framework.

Population health addresses the factors that can lead to disease and injury and works to prevent them. It also takes into account the social determinants that can affect health, including financial, social and behavioral problems.

In addition to learning population health, program fellows pay half tuition for medical school and have a guaranteed job offer with Intermountain Healthcare after completing their residency.

A valued and valued partnership

At the April celebration, leaders from both health systems praised the program’s creation and goals. They also highlighted the importance of population health to the future of health care.

“My very first encounter on my very first day at the University of Utah was with Dr. Marc Harrison,” said Michael Good, MD, CEO of U of U Health. “I will always remember him, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to partner with him again on this program. Marc and I both believe in the health of the population, in the future and in how we will be able to address many, if not all, of the challenges of the US healthcare system.I don’t think any of our organizations could have created a program like this on our own.

“Mike is collaborative and positive,” said Marc Harrison, MD, President and CEO of IHC. “We both knew that this partnership and this program could change the paradigm of healthcare. We started with a blank sheet of paper and received a lot of help from many hard working people to get to where we are today.

Speaking to university students in the program, Harrison noted that while Intermountain Healthcare is great at population health, there’s still a lot to learn. “Health care in the United States is badly damaged,” he said. “Scholars in this program are the solution.”

“We have to figure out how to keep people healthy, not just take care of them when they’re sick,” Harrison continued. “We also need to put in place an economic system that makes it sustainable to keep people healthy. Anything is possible, but it will take your leadership and courage to get us through this.

An experience like no other

Karyn A. Springer, MD, of IHC commented on the program opportunities. “Those who have been medical students before know that it’s not a common thing to be able to connect with those who are leading doctors,” she said. “The success of healthcare in the future will depend on our leadership, and this program gives our researchers the opportunity to ask questions of leading physicians and get advice and support on how to grow not only as a future doctor, but a future leader. in health care.

Fellows are enthusiastic and ready to make the most of every classroom opportunity and work with physician mentors. In the first year alone, researchers were exposed to population health concepts ranging from health care policy to the social determinants of health impacting surrounding communities.

“I am super excited and impressed that the leaders here tonight are proactively providing us with opportunities and expressing the expectation that they want us to be leaders and forge the path of what healthcare will look like in the future” , said program researcher Collin Hunter. “We have a great class and an opportunity to be leaders in our own class and champion the changes we want to see in health care.”

Another researcher, Ivy Hansen, is grateful the program gives her the opportunity to connect with different health systems in Utah.

“Learning about Intermountain has been great because we just have this experience with the U, and it’s very academic,” she said. “Getting out into the community and seeing different populations across the state in the Intermountain system has been really awesome. We are really going somewhere with this program.

Jordan Tucker, another researcher, noted the validation of being in a program with so much freedom to explore one’s interests. ” Whether it be [with] rural or homeless people, it’s exciting…that I can choose a path that I’m passionate about,” he said.

Researcher Rebekah Ford agreed. “It was really enlightening for me to hear all the different ways we can take this program and adapt it to what we find interesting and important,” she said.

An agenda for the future of healthcare

For everyone attending the celebration – leaders, scholars and mentors – the future of healthcare looks bright thanks to programs like this. Physicians like Springer look forward to the positive impact of the partnership between U of U Health and IHC.

“The vision of the future is exciting because it is an opportunity to start upstream in medical education,” she said. “To have a pool of future doctors who have been exposed to population health from the start of their medical training. [They’re] better prepared to direct health care where it needs to be.

Top thought leaders tackle healthcare inequities in population health management https://surroundhealth.net/top-thought-leaders-tackle-healthcare-inequities-in-population-health-management/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 16:56:00 +0000 https://surroundhealth.net/top-thought-leaders-tackle-healthcare-inequities-in-population-health-management/ The continuation of telehealth care delivery beyond the COVID-19 pandemic will benefit publicly insured children if they have equitable access to telehealth services.

The continuation of telehealth care delivery beyond the COVID-19 pandemic will benefit publicly insured children if they have equitable access to telehealth services. This study result is part of a special issue on “Reduce health disparities in underserved populationsin the peer-reviewed journal Population Health Management. Click here to read the issue now.

In their article, Bisakha Sen, PhD, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and coauthors, examined disparities in telehealth use in a population of publicly insured children. They found evidence of disparities in the use of telehealth based on race/ethnicity, rurality and family income. “Those in the highest family income-based cost group had higher odds of using telehealth than the lowest family income-based cost group,” the authors said. “As telehealth will likely continue to play an important role in healthcare delivery, further effort/investment is needed to ensure that telehealth does not further exacerbate inequities in access to pediatric healthcare.”

Also in this issue is the article entitled “Mobile Medical Clinics in the United States Post-Affordable Care Act: An Integrative Reviewby Angela Coaston, PhD, RN, University of California San Francisco, School of Nursing, and coauthors. They found that mobile medical clinics “provide return on investment by avoiding emergencies, reducing hospital stay and improving chronic disease management”. They concluded that “With the importance of the social determinants of health and community-clinic linkages recognized, mobile medical clinics are well placed to inform policy, improve chronic disease health outcomes and advance health equity among vulnerable populations”.

In the article titled “The Tale of Four Babies: Health Equity at the Center of the Quadruple Aim“, J. Nwando Olayiwola, MD, MPH, Chief Health Equity Officer and Senior Vice President at Humana, Inc. observes that communities of color have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. She examines the fundamental roots of this inequity, “specifically the ingrained structural racism that shapes the policies that ultimately shape health outcomes.” She also provides a historical perspective on racism in American health care. She points out that the Quadruple Aim has become the gold standard in health care: “Put the patient experience first, reduce costs, look after the health of the population and look after the providers who deliver these care. »

“No citizen can receive high quality care until we all can! This special issue brings together top thought leaders from across the country to tackle one of our industry’s biggest challenges. At the heart of a just society is our ability to reduce inequities in health care,” says David Nash, MD, MBA, editor-in-chief of Population Health Management and founding dean emeritus and Dr. Raymond C. and Doris N. Grandon Professor, Jefferson College of Population Health, Philadelphia, PA.

The Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University welcomed three new faculty members as part of a new population health research group focused on research on the social determinants of health.

The new recruits are Graciela Muniz-Terrera, Ph.D., Osteopathic Heritage Foundation Ralph S. Licklider, DO Endowed Professor in Health and Aging and Professor of Social Medicine; Allyson Hughes, Ph.D., assistant professor of primary care; and Ángela Gutiérrez, Ph.D., MPH, assistant professor of social medicine. Each new faculty member brings a different type of experience and research focus to Heritage College, all with the same ultimate goal – to conduct research on ways to help members of society who are often overlooked in Health care.

The three faculty members hired as a group – the third group hired by the University – and – will work with the Ohio Musculoskeletal and Neurological Institute (OMNI) and the Diabetes Institute.

“Population health research is interdisciplinary, meaning it cuts across many fields and complements the University’s health-focused research institutes,” said Darlene Berryman, Associate Dean of the research and innovation and professor of biomedical sciences. “For this reason, and also because this type of research typically focuses on health outcomes, we saw that researchers could be a bridge between the college’s strong basic science research program and our efforts to ensure the health and well-being of the communities we serve.

Graciela Muniz-Terrera
Graciela Muniz-Terrera

Muniz-Terrera’s research focuses on aging and brain health, including dementia, as well as studying modifiable risk factors for cognitive and physical decline in older adults.

After starting to study mathematics and statistics in Uruguay, she found that what she loved most was solving real-world problems through data analysis. She got her doctorate. in statistics from the University of Cambridge. While working on her doctorate, Muniz-Terrera focused on understanding healthy aging and what can be done to help support healthy aging. She also wanted to understand and tailor recommendations to improve health based on an individual’s situation and lived experience.

“For me, the way forward in this area is through evidence-based research and the continued development and use of improved investigative methods,” Muniz-Terrera said. “So having a background in statistics and being able to look at the results is integral to the research that we do and will do together.”

Before coming to OHIO, Muniz-Terrera was a lecturer in biostatistics and epidemiology at the University of Edinburgh’s Dementia Prevention Center, where she worked with others to research initiatives on aging. and brain health across the university and Europe. She co-led the Integrative Analysis of Longitudinal Studies in Aging, a project involving a large network of international collaborators, and is currently involved in BrainLat, a new initiative focusing on brain health in Latin America.

Prior to working in Edinburgh, she was also a Lecturer at University College London (UCL) and Program Leader in the MRC Lifelong Health and Aging Unit at UCL. She also worked for several years in Cambridge with the biostatistics unit of the MRC.

Muniz-Terrera wanted to be part of this cluster hire to have the chance to work with other experts on aging, but also to be part of the Athens community.

“It was good to get here and already have people I could talk to about research,” Muniz-Terrera said.

One of his current projects is investigating how an individual’s personality traits can make them more likely to engage in behaviors that may affect their risk of dementia later in life. For example, people who enjoy playing contact sports may have an increased risk of dementia later in life due to sports-related traumatic brain injury. However, people with personality traits that make them more likely to engage in healthy behaviors, such as healthy eating and regular physical activity, may have a lower risk of dementia.

While working in Scotland, Muniz-Terrera gave public talks in rural areas to help people understand how to stay healthy and also hopes to bring this idea to the Athens community.

His research has been supported by the Medical Research Council, the Alzheimer Society, the National Institutes of Health and various other funding bodies.

Allyson Hughes
Allyson Hughes

Hughes is a behavioral medicine expert who has worked in academia and for non-profit organizations and partnered with pharmaceutical companies to understand patient perspectives on post-marketing drugs and disease management. His research in diabetes and behavioral medicine focuses on the psychosocial challenges of diabetes management, including health equity regarding severe hypoglycemia, diabetes distress, diabetes complications, and disability. She also advocates for health policies that give people with diabetes and their families a voice and greater accessibility to care.

Hughes’ interest in managing the disease grew when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at a young age.

“What I noticed was that we weren’t all thriving despite having the same resources,” Hughes said. Her goal is to apply her lived experience, the data she collects, and clinical best practices to transform the healthcare experiences of others.

Before coming to OHIO, Hughes worked for a nonprofit organization in Boston, collecting data from people with diabetes. She has also done advocacy work on how people with blindness and diabetes manage diabetes self-management, what relationships with healthcare providers look like, and looked at data from children’s hospitals to determine whether the diabetes prevention used there is evidence-based. She earned a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a doctorate in health psychology from the University of Texas at El Paso.

Hughes’ current research focuses on aging populations with diabetes as well as the language health care providers use when treating people with diabetes.

She is currently building her lab and a team for the summer, in addition to mentoring students who are interested in health policy and advocacy and providing resources and opportunities for students to conduct research. She says she wants to help students understand what chronic disease looks like. She believes that OHIO has created a caring environment focused on student success both in school and after graduation.

“Coming here and working in this type of environment has been a positive experience,” Hughes said. “It was really cool working with the students.”

Angela Gutierrez
Angela Gutierrez

Gutiérrez’s research focuses on improving health outcomes and quality of life for racial and ethnic minority populations – populations that have been forcibly marginalized, devalued, or abused and generally have less access to resources, compared to other groups. She is interested in risk and resilience among older Latinx and other racial and ethnic minority groups with chronic health conditions; community-based and culturally-informed research among underresourced communities in Mexico, California, and Ohio; and workforce diversity in health-related sectors.

“I examine the direct factors that contribute to the well-being of these populations, mental health and physical health outcomes, and measure accelerated aging across the lifespan,” said Gutiérrez, who completed his doctoral training in community health sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles Fielding School of Public Health and has formal training in public health policy, sociology and education.

Previously, she worked in rural Mexico to implement and evaluate a diabetes self-management program. More recently, she explored promoters’ (subset of community health workers) as public health personnel. She also studies the science of recruitment in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and cognitive function in Latinx people. For example, in a study published in “Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine,” she recently documented the role of the digital divide in widening disparities in Latinx recruitment to dementia research.

Gutiérrez was introduced to these lines of research after majoring in sociology and taking a course in social stratification that opened her eyes to patterns she had seen growing up, where some people tend to be more burdened. high chronic health and other disadvantages. The course has given her the knowledge and skills to systematically explore health disparities, now the foundation of her research, which she plans to continue in collaboration with her cluster colleagues.

“I’ve made the case before that cluster hires are important for improving diversity and social support, so I’m really grateful to be part of this cluster hire and to start working with Drs. Muniz-Terrera and Hughes on projects focused on aging,” she added.

Currently, Gutiérrez is collaborating with another Heritage College professor, Berkeley Franz, Ph.D., Associate Professor, and Osteopathic Heritage Foundation Ralph S. Licklider, DO, Endowed Faculty Fellow in Population Health Science, on a paper that documents strategies that hospitals use for diabetes. prevention awareness. They are looking at whether these strategies use evidence-based approaches and whether they focus on individual or community factors.

“So far, Ohio University and HCOM have been very welcoming and collaborative, which sets HCOM apart from other places. I am delighted with the support provided and the infrastructure already in place for us help achieve success,” Gutiérrez said.
