Better Nutrition for Pets: A Conversation with NomNomNow’s Alex Jarrell

January 21, 2019




Alex Jarrell, Chief Experience Officer and co-founder of NomNomNow, a pet health company that crafts and delivers custom-portioned, made-to-order fresh food for dogs and cats joins eHealth Radio and the Animal Health and Health News Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Alex Jarrell discuss the following:

  1. What is NomNomNow and what made you start this company?
  2. Why should pets eat fresh food? Isn't kibble good enough?
  3. Why do you think people are interested in this product at this time?
  4. Is it expensive to feed a pet this way?

TIP: Become more well informed about what's in your pets' food. Read the ingredients and don't be afraid to ask questions to your veterinarian or to the brands that make the food your feeding. Also, with so many obese pets, it's important to be extra cautious if you're not feeding something pre-portioned. Make sure you know how many calories are in your pets' treats, and factor that into their daily calories.


Alex Jarrell, Chief Experience Officer and co-founder of NomNomNow, is an expert in customer experience management, and is a true caretaker at heart.

Growing up on a farm in Tennessee as the daughter of a veterinarian, Alex’s love of animals blossomed early in life, and has shaped who she is today. After witnessing dramatic health improvements in her own dog, Harlee, as a result of a fresh diet, Alex was determined to help pet parents everywhere experience the powerful benefits of nourishing their pets with fresh food. She set out to create the healthiest, most effective pet nutrition company the world.

Alex cares deeply about transparency and education in the pet food industry, and wants to provide pet parents with the tools they need to ask the right questions of pet food brands, understand the importance of proper nutrition, and make well-informed decisions about their pets’ health.

Tackling the New Dynamics of Patient Revenue Cycle Management in the Era of Healthcare Consumerism

December 31, 2018




Rajesh Voddiraju, the Founder and CEO of HealthiPASS, a patient payment revenue cycle solution health IT vendor joins eHealth Radio and the Healthcare & Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Rajesh Voddiraju discuss the following:

  1. How has the rise of healthcare consumerism affected the healthcare revenue cycle? What revenue cycle changes and adjustments must be implemented in order to stay profitable?
  2. What role does automation play in optimizing revenue cycle management? Can you give me some examples how automation improves patient collections, reduces the cost to collect, accelerates cash flow, and improves patient relations?
  3. How are medical providers increasing price transparency? What tools/technology can medical providers use that demonstrate greater price transparency as it relates to patient empowerment on the front end and improving operating income on the back end?
  4. Many retailers offer “card-on-file” options that are typically stored within the merchant database or some other secure server accessed by the merchant which helps expedite the payment process. Do patients “want” to place a card-on-file for healthcare expenses, and what is the advantage to medical providers for incorporating this type of a policy?
  5. What are your predictions on how the healthcare revenue cycle will continue to evolve as we shift to a value based care health system? Can providers who don’t take the step to adopt revenue cycle technology expect to compete?

SUMMARY: Adopting new patient revenue cycle technology is only part of the solution to accelerate cash flow, increase operating income, and improve patient relations. Medical providers must also adopt comprehensive ongoing education and incentive programs for their staff to help optimize the deployment and ensure that the benefits and advantages of changes to workflow are understood and communicated effectively to patients. Investing in a revenue cycle solution is only the beginning!

Rajesh Voddiraju is the Founder and CEO of HealthiPASS, a patient payment revenue cycle solution health IT vendor. His most recent venture (CVM Solutions) went from idea to Inc 500/5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in U.S., while serving over 300 Fortune 1000 clients.

Rob Miller Of Supplement Critique Is On A Mission To Prove He’s Legit

December 30, 2018




Rob Miller, founder of, a supplement review portal that analyzes the effectiveness of a wide variety of supplements ranging from fat burners to pre workout supplements and everything in between joins eHealth Radio & the Health News and Supplement Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Rob Miller discuss the following:

  1. So tell us a little bit about why was Supplement Critique created?
  2. What makes Supplement Critique different from the 100’s of other supplement review sites out there?
  3. How do you decide what supplement is worth reviewing, explain your process a bit for us.
  4. What types of supplements should consumers watch out for?
  5. What should someone do if they’re unsure about a supplement?

Rob Miller is the founder of Supplement Critique. He holds a certificate as an “Advanced Dietary Supplements Advisor” from a globally recognized nutrition science university, and worked at GNC as a sales rep for 3 years while in college.

Prior to starting Supplement Critique, he was a commercially rated pilot that worked as both a flight instructor and charter pilot.

Supplement Critique is a team of health experts dedicated to providing consumers with unbiased, informative, and fair reviews of a wide variety of supplements. Founded in 2011, it has quickly grown to become one of the most influential supplement review sites in the US.

What makes different from the 1000’s of so called “supplement review sites” on the internet?

For starters, their team personally tests out a wide range of supplements and report back on their results.

No other supplement review site does this.

Additionally, Supplement Critique heavily backs up their articles with links to credible resources. These sources include medically peer reviewed studies, academic research institutions, and credible online publishers like WebMD and Healthline.

Supplement Critique also employs both a licensed pharmacist and a medical doctor to factually review their content, ensuring that it stays up to date with the latest health data available.

Lastly, unlike a wide variety of other supplement review sites, Supplement Critique does not promote their own brand of supplements.

Many of their competitors have created their own brands of supplements. Those same competitors then go on to needlessly bash competing products, all the while selling their own brands.
