Camelot or common sense? The logic behind the UCSF/Stanford merger. (1/1470)

Many academic medical centers (AMCs) throughout the United States have established their own community-based integrated delivery systems by purchasing physician groups and hospitals. Other AMCs have merged with existing nonprofit community-based delivery systems. Still other AMCs have been sold to for-profit firms. The AMCs at Stanford and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), chose a different strategy: to merge with each other to respond to the unique characteristics of the Bay Area marketplace.  (+info)

Referrals by general internists and internal medicine trainees in an academic medicine practice. (2/1470)

Patient referral from generalists to specialists is a critical clinic care process that has received relatively little scrutiny, especially in academic settings. This study describes the frequency with which patients enrolled in a prepaid health plan were referred to specialists by general internal medicine faculty members, general internal medicine track residents, and other internal medicine residents; the types of clinicians they were referred to; and the types of diagnoses with which they presented to their primary care physicians. Requested referrals for all 2,113 enrolled prepaid health plan patients during a 1-year period (1992-1993) were identified by computer search of the practice's administrative database. The plan was a full-risk contract without carve-out benefits. We assessed the referral request rate for the practice and the mean referral rate per physician. We also determined the percentage of patients with diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision, who were referred to specialists. The practice's referral request rate per 100 patient office visits for all referral types was 19.8. Primary care track residents referred at a higher rate than did nonprimary care track residents (mean 23.7 vs. 12.1; P < .001). The highest referral rate (2.0/100 visits) was to dermatology. Almost as many (1.7/100 visits) referrals were to other "expert" generalists within the practice. The condition most frequently associated with referral to a specialist was depression (42%). Most referrals were associated with common ambulatory care diagnoses that are often considered to be within the scope of generalist practice. To improve medical education about referrals, a better understanding of when and why faculty and trainees refer and don't refer is needed, so that better models for appropriate referral can be developed.  (+info)

Physicians in training as quality managers: survival strategy for academic health centers. (3/1470)

Being responsible for medical education places academic health centers at a disadvantage in competing for managed care contracts. Although many suggestions have been made for changing medical education to produce physicians who are better prepared for the managed care environment, few studies have shown how physicians in training can actually contribute to the competitiveness of an academic health center. We present three examples of engaging trainees in projects with a population-based perspective that demonstrate how quality improvement for the academic health center can be operationalized and even led by physicians in training. In addition to gaining experience in a managed care skill that is increasingly important for future employment, physicians in training can simultaneously improve the quality of care delivered through the academic health center.  (+info)

Subspecialist referrals in an academic, pediatric setting: rationale, rates, and compliance. (4/1470)

Appropriate referrals reduce healthcare costs and enhance patient satisfaction. We evaluated the subspecialty referral pattern of a managed care general pediatric office over a 4-month period. Three-hundred-forty-six referrals (267 meeting inclusion criteria) to 24 subspecialties were generated during 4,219 office visits, with five subspecialties receiving 59% of the referrals. The main objective of each referral was management (100), diagnostic assistance (75), special procedure (63), or a combination (29). Patients kept less than half of the referral appointments, with the highest (80%) and lowest (28%) compliance rates observed in cardiology and ophthalmology, respectively. Appointments made within four weeks of the referral were more likely to be kept than those with greater lag time (P = 0.001). The subspecialists prepared written, post-consultation responses to the referring physician in 73% of cases. Presumptive and post-consultation diagnoses were congruent in 78% of those cases in which both diagnoses were noted. Overall, the managed care format enabled our practice to track referral outcomes. The subspecialists' written responses also allowed for an educational exchange between physicians. Compliance with referral appointments is a substantial problem that needs to be addressed.  (+info)

Predictors of acute hospital costs for treatment of ischemic stroke in an academic center. (5/1470)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine predictors of acute hospital costs in patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke to an academic center using a stroke management team to coordinate care. METHODS: Demographic and clinical data were prospectively collected on 191 patients consecutively admitted with acute ischemic stroke. Patients were classified by insurance status, premorbid modified Rankin scale, stroke location, stroke severity (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score), and presence of comorbidities. Detailed hospital charge data were converted to cost by application of department-specific cost-to-charge ratios. Physician's fees were not included. A stepwise multiple regression analysis was computed to determine the predictors of total hospital cost. RESULTS: Median length of stay was 6 days (range, 1 to 63 days), and mortality was 3%. Median hospital cost per discharge was $4408 (range, $1199 to $59 799). Fifty percent of costs were for room charges, 19% for stroke evaluation, 21% for medical management, and 7% for acute rehabilitation therapies. Sixteen percent were admitted to an intensive care unit. Length of stay accounted for 43% of the variance in total cost. Other independent predictors of cost included stroke severity, heparin treatment, atrial fibrillation, male sex, ischemic cardiac disease, and premorbid functional status. CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that the major predictors of acute hospital costs of stroke in this environment are length of stay, stroke severity, cardiac disease, male sex, and use of heparin. Room charges accounted for the majority of costs, and attempts to reduce the cost of stroke evaluation would be of marginal value. Efforts to reduce acute costs should be monitored for potential cost shifting or a negative impact on quality of care.  (+info)

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in an academic hospital: evaluation of changes in perioperative outcomes. (6/1470)

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate changes in perioperative outcomes over an 82-month period in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a single attending surgeon in an academic hospital. METHODS: A retrospective review of 1025 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy from September 1992 to February 1997 was compared to the initial 600 patients from May 1990 to August 1992. Statistical analysis included Chi square with Yates correction and Fischer's exact test. RESULTS: Over the 82-month period there were no significant differences in the overall conversion rate to open cholecystectomy (p=0.26), intraoperative complications (p = 0.81), postoperative complications (p = 0.054) or mortality rates (p=0.66). There were 3 (0.5%) bile duct injuries in the initial 600 patients and only 1 (0.1%) in the group of 1025 patients (p=0.065). There was an increase (p<0.001) in laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed for acute cholecystitis and biliary dyskinesia and an increase (p<0.001) in the percentage of cases performed overall and for acute cholecystitis by the surgery residents over the last 54 months. Despite this, the conversion rates to open cholecystectomy in patients with acute cholecystitis decreased (p < 0.001) over the last 54 months. Additionally, more patients (p < 0.001) were discharged on the day of surgery in the most recent group. CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be performed safely by surgery residents under the direct supervision of an experienced laparoscopist without significant changes in perioperative outcomes. Despite an increased percentage of cases being performed for acute cholecystitis over the last 54 months, conversion rates to open cholecystectomy and biliary tract injury rates have decreased, and the perioperative morbidity has remained the same.  (+info)

Hypertension and managed care. Based on a presentation by Robert P. Jacobs, MD, MBA. (8/1470)

A shift in principles has accompanied the evolution of healthcare delivery from a fee-for-service system to managed care. Managed care organizations have to make decisions on the allocation of healthcare resources that will enhance the care of the entire population. Cost reduction has been a major driver for managed care, but this is increasingly being supplanted by other goals such as increasing the quality of care and the value of health services and providing accountability. As the population ages, management of chronic lifelong illness will pose an increasing challenge. Hypertension is a common chronic illness that, if left untreated, imposes an enormous economic burden on society. These and other aspects of the disease and its management make it eminently suitable for intervention in a managed care setting. Challenges and opportunities exist for disease management initiatives for hypertension in the managed care environment. As health plans enhance their data systems and begin to focus on the long-term benefits of chronic disease management, hypertension will certainly be an early target for intervention and control.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Organizational Factors that Influence Information Technology Diffusion in Academic Health Sciences Centers. AU - Ash, Joan. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - Objective: To identify the organizational factors which influence the diffusion of end user online literature searching, the computer-based patient record, and electronic mail systems in academic health sciences centers in the United States. Design: A total of 1335 individuals working in informatics and library areas at 67 academic health sciences centers in the U.S. were surveyed. Multivariate techniques were used to evaluate the relationship between the set of six organizational factors and two measures of innovation diffusion. Measurements: A Guttman-like scale was developed to measure infusion, or depth or sophistication, of each of the three innovations at each institution. Diffusion was measured by a question previously developed for another study. Six independent variables were measured via five formerly developed scales and ...
Clin Med 12(3):200-206 (2012). The well-trained APP provides a consistent level of competence and beyond. Here the graph on the left represents the PGY1-PGY3 resident while the graph on the right represents the fellow. The solid line labeled Physician Assistants is the well-trained APP that has been practicing for at least 2 years on service.. Chekijian et al. aimed to describe best practices and considerations regarding the integration of APPs at four separate academic institutions in Emergency Medicine. Yale has a postgraduate APP residency in EM that is 18 months in duration and directly parallels the medical residency for MDs with complete integration from the start date of the internship year through the 18 month program. Expectations of review of board material also parallel the MD residency program. At Brown, Physician Extender Development Program (PEDP) was developed for new graduate APPs for a 1 year period. This includes 5 hours of lecture time each week with the EM residency ...
Training can provide good preparation for EMR use, but it is during the go-live period that users actually begin to interact with the EMR in their daily work environment. At go-live, well-planned support is critical. Considerations for this type of support include determining the appropriate ratio of support personnel per user, determining the length of time intense support will be needed, and deciding the manner in which support will be provided. In our experience, we found that a ratio of 1:1 support for providers and 1:3 support for staff worked well. With sufficient support at go-live, the length of time needed to provide support can often be limited to 4-6 weeks, depending on how frequently the user interacts with the EMR.. The manner of support is also an important consideration. Initially, support should be active, intense, and at the elbow to allow the user to maximize the use of the native tools in the application, ensure appropriate incorporation into the workflow, and explore ...
Purpose: Invasive fungal infection (IFI) after liver transplant (LTx) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Studies show that IFI prophylaxis improves outcomes but the prophylaxis regimen and patient selection criteria are not well established. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of our fungal prophylaxis protocol (FPP) on liver transplant outcomes.. *Methods: We performed a single center, retrospective study of adult LTx recipients between 7/1/09-6/30/17. We initiated our FPP on 9/1/16 in patients with one of the following criteria: liver re-transplantation, pre-transplant dialysis, pre-transplant hospitalization > 7 d, pre-transplant candidal colonization, MELD > 35, OR time > 10 h, biliary-enteric anastomosis, intraoperative transfusion requirement of ≥40 units cellular blood products, and return to OR within 30 d. Patients meeting criteria were given 400 mg of fluconazole on POD 1-14. For this analysis patients were divided into two groups; those screened ...
Background:. Invasive fungal infections cause significant mortality and morbidity. Isavuconazole (ISV) is a new triazole approved for treatment of mucormycosis and aspergillosis. Data on its effectiveness outside clinical trials and in patients receiving prior triazole prophylaxis are lacking. Methods:. We conducted a retrospective cohort study on all patients at the Cleveland Clinic 6/1/2015 1/31/2017 who received ISV to determine 6-week response in a population with varying underlying diseases, and previous triazole prophylaxis or treatment. Descriptive statistics and univariate associations were calculated. Results:. 33 patients were identified including Organ transplant recipients (5), Hematopoietic cell transplant recipients (7), and acute leukemia (18). 25 had lung involvement while 13 had rhino-orbital-cerebral disease. In 13 cases, a fungal pathogen was identified: Mucorales (7) and Aspergillus (6). 15 received triazole prophylaxis prior to initiating ISV. 24 received antifungal therapy ...
The American academic health center has emerged from a tradition that bound research, teaching, and patient care. In recent decades major changes in its faculty array and activities have been generated by extramural funding patterns that have emphasized the research functions of the faculty and, more recently, subspecialty care by faculty members, to the detriment of teaching functions and of immersion in major health care and health promotion issues. The latter are arising more prominently in the public agenda than in the academic agenda. The academic health centers should re-examine their activities with particular attention to the opportunities afforded by this emergent public agenda in biomedicine and health. ...
The authors discuss common themes of the Association of Academic Health Centers 6th Trilateral Conference, titled Health as an Instrument of Foreign Policy: Challenges for Academic Centers.
Simulation-based methods are regularly used to train inter-professional groups of healthcare providers at academic medical centers (AMC). These techniques are used less frequently in community hospitals. Bringing in-situ simulation (ISS) from AMCs to community sites is an approach that holds promise for addressing this disparity. This type of programming allows academic center faculty to freely share their expertise with community site providers. By creating meaningful partnerships community-based ISS facilitates the communication of best practices, distribution of up to date policies, and education/training. It also provides an opportunity for system testing at the community sites. In this article, we illustrate the process of implementing an outreach ISS program at community sites by presenting four exemplar programs. Using these exemplars as a springboard for discussion, we outline key lessons learned discuss barriers we encountered, and provide a framework that can be used to create similar

Infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) doubled at academic medical centers in the US between 2003 and 2008, according to a report published in the August issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
Our ultimate goal was to determine whether the MyProstateScore test could be a practical, reliable test that could rule out the need for more costly or invasive testing in men referred for a prostate biopsy, says study lead author Jeffrey Tosoian, M.D., M.P.H., a clinical lecturer in urology at Michigan Medicine.. Tosoian and two of his co-authors were founders of LynxDX and hold an equity stake in the company.. Not all prostate cancers are equally worrisome. Many arise later in life and are so slow growing that the best course of action is to simply monitor them. It is patients with these slow growing cancers or no cancer who, despite elevated PSA levels, could be spared from the more invasive or expensive procedures if doctors had better tests, the researchers say.. The validation study included patients seen at academic health centers and in community health settings. Among these 1,525 patients, 338-22%-had cancers detected on biopsy that were group grade 2 or higher, meaning they were ...
After graduation, many MHA students pursue administrative fellowships at healthcare organizations. In recent years, students obtained positions at academic medical centers, consulting organizations, community hospitals, insurers, and health systems.. The post-graduate fellowship is a comprehensive learning opportunity which refines the individuals analytic, technical, decision-making, and interpersonal, while providing broad exposure to health care issues within an organizational setting. Fellowships afford a valuable means of observing, developing and demonstrating practical management skills while developing career networks of valued colleagues.. Graduates who decide not to pursue an administrative fellowship are employed in a variety of positions and organizations, including consulting, medical group management, policy firms, and third party payers..

The psychiatrist held the door open for me and my first thought as I entered the room was Where is the couch?. Instead of the expected leather couch, I saw a patient lying down on a flat operation table surrounded by monitors, devices, electrodes, and a team of physicians and nurses. The psychiatrist had asked me if I wanted to join him during an ECT for a patient with severe depression. It was the first day of my psychiatry rotation at the VA (Veterans Affairs Medical Center) in San Diego, and as a German medical student I was not yet used to the acronymophilia of American physicians. I nodded without admitting that I had no clue what ECT stood for, hoping that it would become apparent once I sat down with the psychiatrist and the depressed patient.. I had big expectations for this clinical rotation. German medical schools allow students to perform their clinical rotations during their final year at academic medical centers overseas, and I had been fortunate enough to arrange for a ...
Recent changes to the delivery of health care, including the affordable health care act, mandates concerning cost reduction, the need for greater efficiency in patient care and new reimbursement models have driven academic medical centers (AMCs) to the edge of a precipice. They have reached a critical mass where they must restructure, reorganize and innovate or else they will almost certainly become financially unsustainable and obsolete.. How did they get here? As the health care landscape has continued to evolve, these academic institutions have remained rather stagnant, creating financial pressure and a changing environment with which they cannot keep up. If the medical community is to keep AMCs from closing or from ceasing to be academic, they must now exert enormous effort to keep them viable.. To say AMCs are important, is to say that academic medicine is important, says Marvin A. Konstam, MD, FACC, chair of ACCs Academic Section. What were talking about here is preserving the ability ...
OBJECTIVES: To better understand patient satisfaction and perceived engagement with traditional hospital-based communication and to elicit patient preferences for health information technologies that would lead to improved satisfaction and engagement. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a mixed-methods study involving qualitative interviews followed by a survey of hospitalized patients and their family members at a single large academic medical center. METHODS: We conducted semi-structured interviews with 41 patients and surveyed 267 patients or family members to elicit their perspectives on satisfaction with traditional hospital communication methods, information needed to more fully engage in the patients medical care, and potential solutions for improved hospital-based communication ...
Consecutive patients presenting to two large academic medical centres with a Type 1 MI at ≤50 years of age between 2000 and 2016 were included. Cause of death was adjudicated using electronic health records and death certificates. In total, 2097 individuals (404 female, 19%) had an MI (mean age 44 ± 5.1 years, 73% white). Risk factor profiles were similar between men and women, although women were more likely to have diabetes (23.7% vs. 18.9%, P = 0.028). Women were less likely to undergo invasive coronary angiography (93.5% vs. 96.7%, P = 0.003) and coronary revascularization (82.1% vs. 92.6%, P , 0.001). Women were significantly more likely to have MI with non-obstructive coronary disease on angiography (10.2% vs. 4.2%, P , 0.001). They were less likely to be discharged with aspirin (92.2% vs. 95.0%, P = 0.027), beta-blockers (86.6% vs. 90.3%, P = 0.033), angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin-receptor blockers (53.4% vs. 63.7%, P , 0.001), and statins (82.4% vs. 88.4%, P , ...

INTRODUCTION: The population of patients in the USA over the age of 65 is expected to significantly increase over the next 40 years. These patients are at increased risk for hip fractures and will pose a burden to providers in the near future. In order to provide high value care, providers will need to maintain positive outcomes, mitigate complications, and reduce overall cost burdens. This study was designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of a patient transfer protocol between a large academic medical center and a single specialty orthopaedic institution ...
In preparation for my next days cases at the large academic medical center where I work, I reviewed a chart for a 90-year-old with severe spinal cord stenosis who was scheduled for extensive spine surgery to alleviate debilitating neurologic symptoms.. She suffered from a myotonic dystrophy and mild dementia. Her history was complicated by severe mitral regurgitation with severely elevated pulmonary artery pressures and a heart failure-related hospital admission the prior year, although she had not had an echocardiogram for nearly two years. Afflicted with longstanding cardiac conduction disease, she had a pacemaker placed decades ago. It had been subject to many revisions since then but had not been interrogated for a year. Her spinal cord symptoms had progressed with such severity that for the past year that she was wheelchair bound.. Her primary care provider, a clinic nurse practitioner, had seen the patient recently. The patient is stable and she is cleared for her upcoming surgery, read ...

LOS ANGELES -- Older patients admitted to a large academic medical center on busy shifts may have a greater mortality risk than those who come to the hospital on less frenetic days, suggested investig
The results also underline the need for something that is particularly important to me: enhanced, appropriately funded surveillance that will define the true size of the MRSA epidemic and delineate the behavior of the various strains within it. Right now, surveillance is patchy and incomplete, done partially by various CDC initiatives and partially by the major MRSA research teams at academic medical centers. As weve discussed, there is no national requirement for surveillance of patients, and very few state requirements; there is no incentive for insurance companies to pay for surveillance, since it benefits public health, not the patient whose treatment the insurance is paying for; and there is a strong disincentive for hospitals to disclose surveillance results, because they will be tarred as dirty or problematic. Yet to know what to do about the MRSA epidemic, we first have to know the size and character of what we are dealing with, and we do not now ...

There was also a half-day release to assess elderly patients at home. In the fourth year, students had twelve half days in general practice on the management of chronic illness, with opportunities for computer assisted learning. They were also taken to see patients with infectious diseases at home. Organising teaching was a considerable task involving fifty to 100 general practice tutors, who received little recompense. In addition, staff did joint teaching in the third integrated year, including at the bedside in hospitals. This was helped a great deal by the support of the then FHSA who believed strongly in the student presence in practices helping to raise standards. The other major fortuitous activity was the development of the NHS R&D initiative which in the mid-1990s had several commissioned calls for research that spoke strongly to the academic general practice agenda and skill base. This, together with further funds to appoint two lecturers in general practice, marked the beginning of an ...

Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a 487-bed academic medical center located in Bostons historic South End, providing medical care for infants, children, teens and adults.
In recent years, policymakers and researchers have expressed concern that the medical research system produces new knowledge that may not be incorporated effectively into clinical practice.1,2 Acquisition of much of the evidence base of health care through clinical research conducted in tertiary care academic health centers is one barrier to the translation of research into practice.3 This raises concerns about the external validity (generalizability) of findings, in part because the patients treated in such health centers represent fewer than 1 in 1000 patients being treated in the health care system.4,5 Thus, to improve the health of the nation, research must include representative samples of the majority who receive health care outside of academic health centers.. Research focusing on health conditions without considering the social, cultural, ethnic, and geographic identity of study participants may not be easily applied to clinical problems and the care of diverse patients in community ...
In this study, the authors report that close to half of the research leaders at U.S. medical schools do not consider their clinical research enterprises to be healthy or robust, and that they also question the overall quality of the clinical research being conducted.
Our study is the first to assess faculty attitudes, needs, and practice experiences with H/NP before and after implementing a solution to the H/NP needs that clinicians face. Furthermore, we are only the second group to explore physician acceptance, experiences, and knowledge of dietary supplements within an academic medical center [8, 13, 18].. Based upon responses obtained by our surveys, at our medical center, the NMCD tool appeared to be of greatest relevance to FCM providers. The openness and interest of FCM clinicians to nontraditional therapeutic alternatives may reflect a philosophical difference between FCM and other specialties, as this group of physicians tends to place great emphasis on developing, nurturing, and maintaining patient-centered relationships. Therefore, rather than simply disavowing use of all dietary supplements, it is important for FCM physicians to know about these alternatives in order to foster patient relationships. In contrast, our data found that our Med ...

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) recently released a commissioned report titled Advancing Healthcare Transformation: A New Era for Academic Nursing. By building on the Future of Nursing report from the Institute of Medicine, Manatt Health examined the opportunities for schools of nursing within or aligned with academic health centers (AHCs) to become firmly integrated in advancing health care transformation.. The AHCs are hubs of innovation for developing and testing new models of care. Nurses, of course, are key to the success of transforming health care in this new environment, especially as the Affordable Care Act facilitates experiments that move away from fee-for-service and toward value-based payments tied to metrics for quality, safety and value in the context of population health.. Over the past few years, schools of nursing have already begun contributing to these important changes through all aspects of our tripartite mission of research, education and practice. ...
Most prominent academic medical centers develop and distribute advertisements to attract patients, but none have a formal review process to assess the balance and straightforwardness of these advertisements, according to the first study to investigate these practices. Several of the ads promote services of unclear health value to the public and, in some cases, seem to place the financial interests of the medical centers before the interests of the patients, the authors conclude.

The fact is that most doctors who graduate from medical school will not practice in a tertiary academic health center (AHC), but rather in the community, although the other fact is that a disproportionate number of them will choose specialties that are of little or no use in many communities that need doctors. They will, if they can (i.e., if their grades are high enough) often choose subspecialties that can only be practiced in the high-tech setting of the AHC or the other relatively small number of very large metropolitan hospitals, often with large residency training programs. As they look around at the institution in which they are being educated, they see an enormously skewed mix of specialties. For example, 10% of doctors may be anesthesiologists and there well may be more cardiologists than primary care physicians. While this is not the mix in world of practice, and still less the mix that we need to have for an effectively functioning health system, it is the world in which they are ...
When you have seen one AHSC, you have seen just one AHSC - Academic Health Sciences Centre, National Task Force Final Report1. Australias health system is struggling to meet demand and expectations. Demand is driven by an increasing burden of chronic non-infectious disease associated with ageing.2 Expectations of cutting-edge care for all are set by the public and by government.3 Meeting these demands and expectations will be possible only with substantial effort in research and education as part of health service delivery. Separation of funding for research and education from the delivery of patient care diminishes the opportunity for mutually enhancing integration, and for expenditure efficiencies.4,5. ...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer is the second most frequent cancer in Malaysia. Nevertheless, there is little information on treatment and outcomes nationally. We aimed to determine the demographic, clinical and treatment characteristics of colorectal cancer patients treated at the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) as part of a larger project on survival and quality of life outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Medical records of 1,212 patients undergoing treatment in UMMC between January 2001 and December 2010 were reviewed. A retrospective-prospective cohort study design was used. Research tools included the National Cancer Patient Registration form. Statistical analysis included means, standard deviations (SD), proportions, chi square, t-test/ ANOVA. P-value significance was set at 0.05. RESULTS: The male: female ratio was 1.2:1. The mean age was 62.1 (SD12.4) years. Patients were predominantly Chinese (67%), then Malays (18%), Indians (13%) and others (2%). Malays were younger than Chinese ...
The University of Malaya was initially set up in Singapore in 1949 as an amalgamation of the two premier institutions of higher education in colonial Malaya and Singapore, Raffles College and King Edward VII College of Medicine to serve the needs of the colony. Following independence of Malaya in 1957, two autonomous divisions of the university, one in Singapore and one in Kuala Lumpur, were established in 1959. The government of Malaya expressed a desire to change the status of the Kuala Lumpur division to a national University and following appropriate legislation, the University of Malaya was established in 1962.

The University of Malaya was initially set up in Singapore in 1949 as an amalgamation of the two premier institutions of higher education in colonial Malaya and Singapore, Raffles College and King Edward VII College of Medicine to serve the needs of the colony. Following independence of Malaya in 1957, two autonomous divisions of the university, one in Singapore and one in Kuala Lumpur, were established in 1959. The government of Malaya expressed a desire to change the status of the Kuala Lumpur division to a national University and following appropriate legislation, the University of Malaya was established in 1962. The Singapore Division was renamed the University of Singapore.. In 1961, the Board of Education, University Malaya had proposed that a medical institution be established to cater to the shortages of medical doctors in Malaya at that time.The first Faculty of Medicine in Malaysia was established in the University of Malaya in 1963.

Physicians and scientists at academic medical centers face many competing demands for their time. Efforts to help them improve their teaching or scholarship traditionally have taken place in face-to-face lunchtime workshops. As clinical volume and the difficulty of obtaining external funding increases, faculty members have less opportunities to devote to their own professional development.. Researchers from BUSM and BUSPH surveyed the websites of all 154 accredited medical schools in the U.S. and Canada to locate examples where medical schools have used social media to engage with faculty in a virtual environment. Their findings were recently reported in Medical Education Online.. The researchers found 22 medical schools (14.3 percent) employed at least one social media technology tool in support of faculty development. In total, 40 instances of social media tools were identified - the most popular platforms being Facebook (nine institutions), Twitter (eight institutions) and blogs (eight ...
As an ICU nurse in a large academic medical center, I have experienced first-hand the importance of interdisciplinary communication. The University of Pennsylvania Health System appears to have done an excellent job in creating a program that facilitates communication between nurse leaders and physicians. The data speaks for itself; better interdisciplinary communication and teamwork between specialties fosters better outcomes for patients. The idea of co-managing teams with physician and nursing leadership is crucial, and the introduction of project managers is an excellent way to take some of the burden for implementing these projects off of front line clinical staff. Transparency regarding outcomes and unit-wide rewards for successes are great ways to hold healthcare teams accountable and to ensure staff buy in. Knowledge sharing between units is also an excellent practice to ensure that the motivation for the project is felt hospital-wide. While the patient-related outcomes themselves are ...
A UC Davis study has found that general thoracic surgeons, especially those at academic health centers, perform the vast majority of complex noncardiac operations, including surgeries of the esophagus and lungs. The authors said their results, published in the October issue of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, support the designation of general thoracic surgery as a distinct specialty, which will benefit patients when selecting surgeons for specific procedures.
In the 1980s, communication with other healthcare providers reigned king. We marked up medical student H&Ps with red ink if they didnt have perfect grammar and we carefully dictated referral letters and then edited them before sending them out. Nobody cared about billing documentation back then - it just wasnt important. All of that changed on June 21, 1996, when the Office of the Inspector General announced the PATH audits - Physicians At Teaching Hospitals. Although designed to be a way to protect Medicare against billing fraud, the PATH audits turned into the medical billing equivalent of the Spanish Inquisition. Federal Inspectors would do probing chart reviews of physicians at academic medical centers and if they found charts that didnt have the right documentation elements, they would swoop in and do a massive audit of all of the physicians, often resulting in fines of 10s of millions of dollars.. It was easy for these investigators - Medicare had established billing rules and ...
Female surgeons at a large academic medical center perform less complex surgical procedures than their male counterparts, according to a new study by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). This study, published in Annals of Surgery, is one of the first to measure the problem of underemployment among female surgeons in the United States, which can affect compensation, career advancement and job satisfaction.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Adolescent girls with polycystic ovary syndrome have an increased risk of the metabolic syndrome associated with increasing androgen levels independent of obesity and insulin resistance. AU - Coviello, Andrea D.. AU - Legro, Richard S.. AU - Dunaif, Andrea. PY - 2006/2. Y1 - 2006/2. N2 - Context: Adult women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have an increased prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MBS). The prevalence of MBS is also increasing in adolescents. Objective: Our objective was to test the hypothesis that the prevalence of MBS is increased in adolescent girls with PCOS compared with the general population and to determine the factors associated with an increased risk of the MBS in PCOS. Design and Setting: We conducted a cross-sectional case-control study at academic medical centers with general clinical research centers. Participants: Participants included 49 adolescent girls with PCOS and 165 girls from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey ...
This article describes the roll out of Malacef (IV artesunate) under named patient programmes in three EU member countries. France has a system that uses proactive authorisation and surveillance, whereas Belgium and the Netherlands depend on the passive detection of adverse events. Most patients are treated at academic medical centres, but more specialised general hospitals also have IV artesunate in stock. The geographical distribution of Malacef throughout the Netherlands was relatively rapid, which is not surprising for a small country in which the professional groups are highly organised. In Belgium and France, the geographical distribution of Malacef proceeded more slowly. In Belgium, this is due to the fact that the use of Malacef is restricted to select specialised centres; in France, the slow distribution was likely due to a centralised procedure that is tightly controlled by the French government and requires strict and therefore lengthy application procedures.. The major limitations of ...
