  • heart disease
  • Depending on the conditions a population has - for example, frail, elderly patients with co-occurring illnesses like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes - cost savings could result from reductions in high-cost acute care episodes, but their need for physician visits or costly prescription medications may not be affected by DM intervention. (hhs.gov)
  • disorders
  • Turfgrass diseases are often overlooked because the biological organisms (plant pathogens) causing the problems are rarely observed and commonly mistaken for other injuries or disorders. (ufl.edu)

  • turf
  • While turfgrasses may be affected by diseases all year, individual turf diseases are active for only a few months each year, usually because of weather patterns and resulting environmental effects. (ufl.edu)
  • However, any stress (environmental or manmade) placed on the turf weakens it, making it more susceptible to diseases. (ufl.edu)
  • Turf disease control was much simpler thirty five years ago - you just treated any patches that appeared with a mercury-based fungicide and it was more or less sorted. (pitchcare.com)
  • clinical management
  • In the clinical management of patients with liver, bile duct and pancreas diseases, it is important to assess the degree of disturbance and to diagnose the causative insult, and therefore clinical and laboratory methods of assessing each of these pathologies are of high interest. (springer.com)
  • Many DM programs focus on single diseases and exclude people with multiple chronic illnesses, so there has been little opportunity to conduct research on the health and cost impacts of DM for individuals with multiple chronic conditions, and this is a challenge to developing effective, targeted clinical management approaches for patients with comorbidities (Vogeli et al. (hhs.gov)
  • indicate
  • Furthermore, considering that different diseases differ in their dynamics, they do not indicate the relative effectiveness of the various tactics for the control of a particular disease. (apsnet.org)

  • Early afternoon is a good time to look for localized patches of wilt or drought symptoms that may indicate root or crown diseases. (ufl.edu)
  • Mixed results from studies of disease management programs in general indicate there is no conclusive evidence of the impact of the programs on cost-effectiveness and health outcomes. (hhs.gov)
  • chronic conditions
  • 2007). Due to demographic trends and the increasing number of individuals with chronic illnesses that may lead to costly hospitalizations, it is likely that states will continue to explore disease management as a way to address rising health care costs for Medicaid, especially for patients with multiple chronic conditions. (hhs.gov)
  • For populations enrolled in Medicaid or Medicare, the prevalence of multiple chronic conditions makes disease management complex. (hhs.gov)

  • infection
  • Intercropping with a nonsusceptible crop is not generally considered an effective means of disease control, but it can reduce the apparent infection rate by about 1/3 in some cases. (apsnet.org)
  • Partial resistance often is not considered adequate for effective disease control, but nevertheless it can reduce the apparent infection rate significantly. (apsnet.org)
  • Avoidance -prevent disease by selecting a time of the year or a site where there is no inoculum or where the environment is not favorable for infection. (apsnet.org)
  • conditions
  • Senior Helpers of Dunn can help implement a comprehensive at-home plan for managing a variety of chronic diseases and conditions. (seniorhelpers.com)
  • There are many steps in the disease process, and all are dependent on environmental conditions. (ufl.edu)
  • It seems that the potential for disease management to control costs might depend on whether the populations targeted for intervention have conditions that leave little room for overall improvement in their health status. (hhs.gov)
  • Among the problems that have been identified as major challenges to evaluation of the impact of disease management programs is the lack of a standardized taxonomy of mechanisms used in managing patients with complex conditions. (hhs.gov)

  • Prevention, wellness, and disease management has moved into the forefront of health over the past decade as research continues to show the significant benefits of lifestyle changes on health. (apta.org)
  • Measures
  • Following our discovery of the causes of plant diseases in the early nineteenth century, our growing understanding of the interactions of pathogen and host has enabled us to develop a wide array of measures for the control of specific plant diseases. (apsnet.org)
  • They also fail to show how the different disease control measures interact in their effects on disease dynamics. (apsnet.org)
  • We need some means of assessing quantitatively the effects of various control measures, singly and in combination, on the progress of disease. (apsnet.org)
  • control
  • From this accumulated knowledge base, we can distill some general principles of plant disease control that can help us address the management of new problems on whatever crop in any environment. (apsnet.org)
  • Plant disease 'control' in this sense is not practical, and in most cases is not even possible. (apsnet.org)
  • Finally, the traditional principles of plant disease control tend to emphasize tactics without fitting them into an adequate overall strategy. (apsnet.org)
  • The problem is generally one of semantics rather than of fundamental disagreement over the important means of disease control. (apsnet.org)
  • To make life easier, there were fewer products to choose from and most had a very broad spectrum of control, so you didn't have to be particularly adept at disease identification. (pitchcare.com)
