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 ...
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. ...

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 ...

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 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. ...

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.

America, your bluff has been called…the verdict is in, and the old adage remains true: you cannot have your cake and eat it too (shocking news, I know). Clichéd as it may sound, that message rang true this morning as the annual assembly opened in a blaze of introspection and criticism of the status quo. The target? Rising healthcare costs. Even current levels of U.S. healthcare spending are unsustainable, yet we continue on a path of rising costs without adequate thought regarding the value of care provided.. The panel discussion featured Thomas Smith, Brad Stuart, and Rebecca Kirch, each presenting perspectives on the problem and fielding questions. Smith hit the nail on the head, pointing out that "value is missing, care is not optimal, and costs are rising unsustainably." He highlighted some staggering statistics from a sample of cancer patients at a major academic medical center (Dy, et al, 2011). Roughly 1/3rd received chemotherapy within 2 weeks of death, ~25% ended up on a ventilator, ...

Editors Choice. Lipidology: Contributions and threats. The ever-reducing support for South Africas academic health centres long preceded our democratic change and has continued unabated. National and provincial heads of health focusing narrowly on service requirements, repeatedly lament their lack of control of academic heads of departments, registrars and others involved in the education process. Unlike the current Eskom power delivery debacles, which are on or off, often with disastrous effects with the latter, the insidious erosion of capacity of our teaching institutions is not immediately apparent.

The John Theurer Cancer Center, Hackensack University Medical Center reports they are the only clinical investigational site in New Jersey-and the only
Dr. Manny Alvarez, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology, Donna A Sanzari Womens Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ received the first-ever March of Dimes Presidents Award for Prematurity Prevention Leadership for reducing early elective C-sections. Beginning in 2009, the hospital implemented policies that have reduced medically unnecessary early term deliveries from nearly 43 percent to 5 percent in November of 2011. "Because of Dr. Alvarezs leadership more babies are going full-term, which prevents preterm birth. Dr. Alvarez is a true champion for babies," said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes. Every week of pregnancy is crucial to a newborns health.

Another true part of the movie is the contention that young women today wont put up with being treated as less able than men in an academic setting. I saw this in action last week when I met with a group of young women (undergraduate and graduate students) who made it very clear that they know how good they are. They know that they are smart, dedicated, and hard-working, and that this should lead to many opportunities. Most of their stories about being treated as having inferior abilities or intellects compared to men came from their experiences with jobs and internships, not from academia. If there is a bright side to that, its that these women are gaining a lot of self-confidence from their academic experiences ...

Workshop on Living Labs for Information Retrieval Evaluation _(at)_ CIKM 2013 CALL FOR DEMOS The idea of living labs, i.e., performing in-situ evaluation with real users, has been around for some time, but practical manifestations in an academic setting for IR evaluation are still in their infancy. We invite researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes or practical developments in a dedicated demo track at the CIKM Living Labs for Information Retrieval Evaluation (LL13) workshop. Demo submissions must be based on an implemented system that pursues one or more aspects relevant to the http://ll2013.dcu.ie/cfp.html#topics">interest areas of the workshop. Authors are strongly encouraged to target scenarios that are rooted in real-world applications. One way to think about this is by considering the following: as a company operating a website/service/application, what methods could allow various academic groups to experiment with specific components of this ...

Project Teen Canada" is what this volume is all about. The authors, both experts in the field, spent four months in 1984 polling some 3,600 teenagers between the ages of fifteen and nineteen. More than one hundred and fifty schools participated nationally. The survey was carried out from the University of Lethbridge. With the results, the authors were able to generalize to an overall adolescent population of 2.3 million. The large sample increased the accuracy to within about three percentage points, either way, nineteen times in twenty. The format of the book makes for easy and enjoyable reading. With the large type and clear chapter headings, the reader can easily select from among the seventeen areas surveyed. The table of contents lists the preface and introduction together with the ten chapters in an outline format. This will be particularly helpful to those who wish to study the work in an academic setting. The chapter headings themselves stimulate ones curiosity, e.g., "Values: What is ...

You have another option in my city if youre indigent and that is through the county. I also tried that option. At the time you had to get a card which allowed you to access health care through county facilities. It was probably a little better, because the psychiatrists werent as limited in the meds they could prescribe and youre getting care through an academic center. But, the drawback is that youre getting care through an academic center so you are probably getting psychiatric care from a resident who may not know yet what theyre doing and the psychiatrists change periodically and move on. So, not real sure about continuity of care in that setting ...
