Transmissions of hepatitis C virus during the ancillary procedures for assisted conception. (1/15)

Since mother to child transmissions of hepatitis C virus (HCV) have been reported to be low, teams involved in assisted reproductive technologies have accepted HCV positive patients into their programmes. We report in the present paper two cases of undoubted patient to patient HCV transmission while patients were attending for assisted conception. In both cases, HCV genotyping and sequencing of the first hypervariable region of the HCV genome provided molecular evidence for nosocomial transmission. Investigations made to elucidate the route of contamination have shown that the most likely route of contamination is through healthcare workers. Such nosocomial HCV infection has been reported in other healthcare situations, mainly in dialysis units, and physical proximity was also suspected to be at the origin of the infection. We conclude that assisted reproduction teams must be very prudent when including such patients in their programmes.  (+info)

Accidents with potentially hazardous biological material among workers in hospital supporting services. (2/15)

Descriptive study was carried out to characterize the occupational accidents involving potentially contaminated material among workers of hospital supporting services. The study reviewed records of workers involved in these accidents and attended at a specialized outpatient clinic of a large tertiary care hospital between January 1997 and October 2001. A total of 2814 workers from different professional categories were attended during this period. Of these, 147 (5.2%) belonged to the hospital supporting services and were the victims of 156 accidents, auxiliary cleaning personnel (80.2%), and over a third of the workers had not received any dose of hepatitis B vaccine (35.4%). Most accidents were due to sharp injuries (96.8%) caused by inadequately discarded hollow needles. Chemoprophylaxis for HIV was not indicated in only 23.1% of cases. We conclude that these workers are also exposed to the possibility of acquiring blood-borne pathogens and that periodical education programs are needed.  (+info)

Factors for satisfaction among providers of ancillary health services in a community-based cancer prevention program: a pilot study in Nevada. (3/15)

Providers of ancillary health services are essential members of any health care delivery system. They supply laboratory, radiology, and other diagnostic modalities necessary for quality medical care. Assessment of the providers' factors for satisfaction in participating in cancer prevention programs can contribute to better services and can serve as a model for other community-based health programs. We conducted a pilot survey of providers of ancillary services in the Nevada Women's Health Connection, a community breast and cervical cancer prevention program. Of the 93 participating providers, a total of 44 providers completed the survey. We subjected the survey data to factor analysis using iterative principal axis factoring with Varimax rotation. Three components of satisfaction were identified, comprising satisfaction with the (1) reimbursement process, (2) positive perception of the program, and (3) familiarity with program's requirements. All three components accounted for 72.08% of the total variance before the rotation. Amount of financial gain was not a significant factor for satisfaction among participating providers. Providers of ancillary health services were satisfied in their participation in this community-based cancer prevention program. There were three components of satisfaction identified. Further attention should be given on these issues as they have implications for quality improvement in health services for community-based programs dealing with low income and uninsured patients.  (+info)

The impact of different rehabilitation strategies after major events in the elderly: the case of stroke and hip fracture in the Tuscany region. (4/15)

BACKGROUND: On a regional level, our aims were to describe rehabilitation patterns for elderly patients with stroke and hip fracture and to investigate mortality risk during the 6-month post acute period. METHODS: Data sources included administrative data relative to patients aged 65+ resident in Tuscany admitted in hospital for stroke or hip fracture between 2001 and 2003, traced up to 3 years before and 6 months following index admission. The study design involves computerized linkage of administrative data, and an exploratory analysis of the association between rehabilitation patterns and 6-month mortality, adjusting for clinical, demographic, and acute-related care characteristics using multivariate Cox regression. RESULTS: Rehabilitation patterns vary greatly across Tuscany with considerable cost implications. Six month mortality risk for stroke patients is significantly lower among residents of Local Health Authorities where patients are more frequently rehabilitated, specifically in extra-hospital settings. CONCLUSION: Our study, targeting two crucial conditions for elderly patients, found a high variability of rehabilitation patterns across a region, albeit coherent between the two pathologies, associated with remarkable differences in average expenditure. Differences in hazard rates for 6-month mortality after stroke at population level were also found. These results need to be confirmed and further investigated through a more robust information framework.  (+info)

Per-click, under arrangement, mark-up, and other dirty words. (5/15)

So, the winners under these CMS proposals are OBs in rural areas and people who make minor mistakes when trying to meet a Stark exception. The losers are diagnostic test purchasers, per-click lease participants (at least when the lessor is a physician), and hospitals and physicians who are involved in UA arrangements. Those left in limbo (since they were not addressed) are block lease participants as well as per-click lease parties where the physician is both the lessee and the source of patients. Of course, this is not the last word. CMS will take public comments on the proposals until August 31, 2007. We will then have to wait in suspense for the final rule, which could take years (although it is possible that at least some of the current proposals could be finalized soon since they are currently part of the 2008 Physician Fee Schedule proposal.) This suspense is only heightened by the impending Stark II Phase III rules.

The impact of an enhanced interpreter service intervention on hospital costs and patient satisfaction. (6/15)

BACKGROUND: Many health care providers do not provide adequate language access services for their patients who are limited English-speaking because they view the costs of these services as prohibitive. However, little is known about the costs they might bear because of unaddressed language barriers or the costs of providing language access services. OBJECTIVE: To investigate how language barriers and the provision of enhanced interpreter services impact the costs of a hospital stay. DESIGN: Prospective intervention study. SETTING: Public hospital inpatient medicine service. PARTICIPANTS: Three hundred twenty-three adult inpatients: 124 Spanish-speakers whose physicians had access to the enhanced interpreter intervention, 99 Spanish-speakers whose physicians only had access to usual interpreter services, and 100 English-speakers matched to Spanish-speaking participants on age, gender, and admission firm. MEASUREMENTS: Patient satisfaction, hospital length of stay, number of inpatient consultations and radiology tests conducted in the hospital, adherence with follow-up appointments, use of emergency department (ED) services and hospitalizations in the 3 months after discharge, and the costs associated with provision of the intervention and any resulting change in health care utilization. RESULTS: The enhanced interpreter service intervention did not significantly impact any of the measured outcomes or their associated costs. The cost of the enhanced interpreter service was $234 per Spanish-speaking intervention patient and represented 1.5% of the average hospital cost. Having a Spanish-speaking attending physician significantly increased Spanish-speaking patient satisfaction with physician, overall hospital experience, and reduced ED visits, thereby reducing costs by $92 per Spanish-speaking patient over the study period. CONCLUSION: The enhanced interpreter service intervention did not significantly increase or decrease hospital costs. Physician-patient language concordance reduced return ED visit and costs. Health care providers need to examine all the cost implications of different language access services before they deem them too costly.  (+info)

Building rehabilitation capacity in rural in New South Wales. (7/15)

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this article is to report on a study of the expansion of specialist rehabilitation services in central New South Wales, Australia, through the introduction of rehabilitation as a new service type at 2 small rural multi-casemix hospitals, within an integrated area-wide model of rehabilitation service delivery. METHODS: Mixed methods were used. Information about bed occupancy and patient participation in rehabilitative activities were collected from hospital data bases and patient observation by staff over a 10 month period, and analysed quantitatively using descriptive statistics. During the same time period 10 staff from each hospital participated in a series of 3 audio-taped interviews each. These semi-structured interviews were conversational in nature and asked about the staff member's experiences and perceptions of the introduction of rehabilitation. Inductive qualitative analysis of the interview transcripts captured the enablers and threats to rehabilitation at each site. RESULTS: The introduction of rehabilitation as a new service type at 2 small rural hospitals was facilitated by an integrated area-wide model of rehabilitation service delivery, and the support of a regional specialty rehabilitation service provider. The formal introduction of rehabilitation at the 2 small hospitals was delayed while processes to ensure that patients were transferred to the appropriate hospital were developed, equipment purchased and building modifications undertaken. Despite this, staff came to appreciate the benefits of rehabilitation for their patients and to see rehabilitation potential in their usual patient population. Some staff took longer than others to embrace the changes; however, staff generally appreciated that the introduction of rehabilitation was not hurried. CONCLUSIONS: When linked to a specialty rehabilitation provider, small multi-casemix rural hospitals appear to have the potential to support the rehabilitation of patients in their local communities whose rehabilitation needs are uncomplicated. To fully realise the potential of small rural hospitals, and because these hospitals are primarily staffed by nurses, nursing staff working in these facilities need to be supported to develop their rehabilitative potential. This support should come from the collective wisdom of specialist rehabilitation nurses, medical rehabilitation specialists and allied health staff, and must be provided at the broader structural level. Through cross-disciplinary sharing of knowledge and skills, residents of rural communities could spend less time hospitalised at long distances from their homes.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Supporting services augment the value of a businesss core service, provide points of differentiation, and create a competitive advantage over competitors. Fitness clubs offer a number of supporting services, including sport participation opportunities. Fitness tests are a common supporting service. This study examined interest in fitness tests and related supporting services. Moreover, because customised programs are harder to imitate, optimal combinations of desired services were investigated. Further, K-means cluster analysis identified seven meaningfully differentiated customer groups. MANOVA and chi-square analyses indicated that clustered groups differed based on demographic and psychographic variables. The study demonstrates that (1) consumers desire supporting services, (2) distinct bundles of supporting services can be identified, and (3) consumers desiring distinct bundles of services are have distinct demographic and psychographic profiles.

In this study, concerns about down-referral seemed to outweigh perceived advantages. Patients favoured a centralised service for the following reasons: easier availability of ancillary services, a pre-existing relationship with the centralized clinic, friendlier nurses and less stigma. Stigma remains an important issue for HIV-positive people, and patients perceived a hospital service to provide greater anonymity and less stigma. These findings are in keeping with another study in Johannesburg that found that patients opted to avoid clinics in their local areas, and preferred to travel to more distant facilities so as to conceal their HIV status from community members [12]. The fear of stigma may also impact negatively on patients adherence to treatment [13, 14].. Decentralisation of services has been shown to be successful in a number of other African countries with regards to TB treatment and care [15, 16]. For this reason, task sharing has been recommended in HIV programmes in order to ...
Several investigations have compared HaH care with traditional hospital care. Although most studies have shown that HaH is as effective as inpatient care but less costly,1,2 the patient populations, inclusion criteria, and endpoints differed. Ram et al pooled the results of 7 studies of patients with COPD who had acute exacerbations. More recent studies reached similar conclusions.3,4. Major strengths of this review include the comprehensive search strategy that was used to identify studies and the well defined inclusion criteria. 2 independent reviewers agreed on the quality of all included RCTs.. A limitation of the findings lies in the original research. Although all of the included studies assessed HaH care by a specialist respiratory nurse, the frequency and length of care varied, as did ancillary services. Patients randomised to inpatient care received usual care, which varied among hospitals. This variability can make evaluation of endpoints difficult and result in flawed estimates of ...

President Obamas spending plan for fiscal year 2015 recommends excluding anatomic pathology (AP) services from the In-Office Ancillary Services (IOAS) exception to the Stark Law. Closing this self-referral loophole in the presidents budget reflects years of advocacy work by the CAP against the ongoing inclusion of AP services in the IOAS exception as it does not benefit patient care.. The 2015 budget is the first time the president called for the removal of AP services from the IOAS exception. The presidents budget also recommends removing advanced imaging, radiation therapy, and physical therapy services from the IOAS exception. Budget officials estimate removing these services would yield $6.03 billion over 10 years in Medicare savings.. "While there are many appropriate uses for this exception, certain services, such as advanced imaging and outpatient therapy, are rarely furnished on the same day as the related physician office visit," President Obamas budget states. "Additionally, there ...
Mounting evidence that physician self-referral encourages unnecessarily higher use of certain services more than justifies the introduction of the Promoting Integrity in Medicare Act today in Congress.. Rep Jackie Speier (D-CA) introduced the bill, announcing during a press conference that it is intended to remove physical therapy and other health care services from the in-office ancillary services (IOAS) exception, which allows for self-referral.. APTA and its partners in the Alliance for Integrity in Medicare, or AIM Coalition, strongly support this move to exclude these services from the IOAS exception. The exception-originally intended for same-day services, such as x-rays or blood draws, that are integral to the physicians services and convenient for the patient-has instead encouraged misapplication for financial self-interest. The result is overuse and hundreds of millions of Medicare dollars in unneeded treatments.. A series of reports from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) is ...

Whether you are a PT; MSPT or DPT this will benefit all of us. Lets face it the reality stands that the Orthopedic surgeons have added ancillary services to their clinics once the reimbursements for their scope of practice services dropped a while back. In addition, while initially they only dealt with the easy high paying Medicare billing PT cases in direct violation of the Stark Law, and left out the lower paying HMOs and Workers Compensation,now they are after everything leaving nothing for some of us who dreamed of opening and succeeding in having a private practice as we rightfully and legally earned the right to do so by attending accredited programs. Considering that Workers Compensation was the only fair source of referrals based on quality of service and compliance for us to stay in business, since all the rest was absorbed in house by POPs and OP hospital clinics where these surgeons were affiliated to, now even this is eliminated since the Physicians have found a loophole to coerce ...

Medical errors are an enormous source of liability for healthcare providers. A 2012 article in the Journal of Health Care Finance reported that the direct additional medical costs of medical errors, including ancillary services, prescription drugs, and inpatient and outpatient care, amounted to about $17 billion annually (39[1]:39-50http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23155743).. The good news for audiologists and hearing instrument specialists is that they are not among the healthcare providers most vulnerable to medical errors that can lead to lawsuits for malpractice or other claims..

Purpose of the Study: The goal of this paper is to compare the impact of a multi-tiered community-based cancer prevention model on cancer knowledge, health attitude and behavior, by demographics and assimilation with an emphasis of impacts on disadvantaged rural minority population.. Background: There is less choice for healthy food, less access to health facilities and sparse access to public health information in rural communities that create higher risk of preventable cancer in rural areas. How families from different cultural origin react to the community dynamics are defined by their culture and language. Thus, to accurately study the effectiveness and impact of cancer prevention approach it would be helpful to compare the outcomes by demographics and assimilation.. Experimental Procedures: A project to deliver educational interventions to rural populations by using local supermarkets was launched in June of 2011 in a rural community of West Texas. The population of the intervention ...
The paper analyzes the effects of informational asymmetries on the market structure of the banking industry in a multi-period model of spatial competition. All lenders face uncertainty with regard to borrowers creditworthiness, but, in the process of lending, incumbent banks gather proprietary information about their clients, acquiring an advantage over potential entrants. These informational asymmetries are an important determinant of the industry structure and may represent a barrier to entry for new banks. The paper shows that, in contrast with traditional models of horizontal differentiation, the steady-state equilibrium is characterized by a finite number of banks even in the absence of fixed costs.
Recently, it has become increasingly important to provide customers with highly creative services to attain differentiation from competing firms. Fulfilling customer requirements with such creative service contents is an effective way to differentiate a firms services from those of its competitors. However, there have been few studies that directly support the creation of new service contents, e.g., service design support using information-processing technology for knowledge by the computer. It is valid for service providers to acquire creative service design solutions that fulfill customer requirements. In this paper, we propose a support method to fulfill customer requirements for a target service by using the functions of another type of service. This method supports the acquisition of new service design solutions on the basis of the similarity with the customer requirements or functions of different services. The proposed method is verified by applying it to an existing service ...

Executive Summary. In the complex world of today with customers as well as suppliers scattered around the world the inevitable outcome is complexity. Going back to the early days of industrialism companies to a large extent owned the whole chain from supplies to sales of the final products. An example is Ford, the company controlled almost the entire chain, they even established their own rubber plantation.. During the last decades companies have switched to a more intense focus on their core competences leaving supporting services, raw material and components to others. Again, the manufacturing industry, using Ford as an example, uses sub-suppliers for components and material. Partly this is because today there is a far broader variety in what is produced according to customers different demands. Earlier people simply bought a car but today people have varying needs as well as a desire to express themselves by choosing model, color, rims et cetera. Today these companies are to a larger extent ...

Author(s): Chris J. Leach & Ananth N. Madhavan. Abstract: This paper examines the role of market makers in facilitating price discovery. We show that a specialist may experiment with prices to induce more informative order flow, thereby expediting price discovery. Market makers in a multiple dealer system, unlike a specialist system, do not have the incentives to perform such costly experiments because of free-rider problems. Consequently, the specialist system may provide open markets where competition fails, but at the cost of wider bid-ask spreads. We analyze the effect of experimentation on the bid-ask spread and provide an exploratory analysis of intraday specialist data which is consistent with our price experimentation hypothesis

Summary: Theory makes ambiguous predictions about the relationship between market structure and competitiveness of the banking system and banking sector stability. Empirical studies focusing on individual countries provide similarly ambiguous results, while cross-country studies point mostly to a positive relationship between competition and stability in the banking system. Where liberalization and unfettered competition have resulted in fragility, this has been mostly the consequence of regulatory and supervisory failures. The advantages of competition for an efficient and inclusive financial system are strong, and regulatory and supervisory policies should focus on an incentive-compatible environment for banking rather than try to fine-tune market structure or the degree of competition. ...

Just wanted to clarify the pricing of the testing included on our site. We always ask what physician reading fees are, as we realize that can tack on another 10-20% or so to the total charge. In many cases, the fee is included. In other cases, okay Ill just say it- often in the large hospital facilities- noone was ever able to tell us what the fees were, even after several calls to different deparments in the hospital. So in those cases, the fee is not included. In LesliesList.org you can click on the individual sites on the search results and you can see the breakdown of charges. Lastly, we only include radiology tests that each radiology site is fully accredited to do by the American College of Radiology." ...

Some students and I had lunch with Vice Dean of Education Irby. It was an informal discussion about how we felt about UCSF. In general, comments were very positive. One of the great things about this luncheon was that I realized how much import UCSF puts into education. The curriculum has changed dramatically over the past few years, and all their changes seem to be for the better. The curricular committees listen to feedback, think of ways to improve, and evaluate other medical schools to see what works best. We might have changes in the clinical core, which will be interesting. Theyre saying that instead of traditional separated rotations, well have a more integrated approach. Perhaps you will be on call in the Emergency Department one night and you get assigned a patient. If he goes to the ICU, you follow him. If he needs radiology tests, you work with the radiologists. If he needs a kidney transplant, you learn both nephrology and surgery. There is a core group of mentors that makes sure ...
One of the reasons for the Internets surge in popularity is the cost of most online content - or rather, the lack of cost. Thats not to say the content is free, however. Almost every site is supported by advertisements (including MakeUseOf), and sites are paid for displaying them either per-click or, in some cases, via a flat monthly fee.
Cancer is emerging as a public health problem around the world . Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world, particularly in developing countries. Over 40% of all cancers can be prevented. Others can be detected early, treated and cured. Even with late stage cancer, the suffering of patients can be relieved with good palliative care.. In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer out of 58 million deaths worldwide. More than 70% of all cancer deaths occur in low and middle income countries, where resources available for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer are limited or nonexistent. Based on projections, cancer deaths will continue to rise with an estimated 9.0 million people dying from cancer in 2015, and 11.4 million dying in 2030. (WHO) It has been expected that cancer problem will increase especially in the developing countries, where there is lack of cancer prevention program or given less priority. Nepal being a developing country faces many problem of communicable ...

Development of a Tool for Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment and Preventive Interventions in Ancillary Services Patients Monica S. Messer Abstract The incidence of nosocomial pressure ulcers has increased 70 percent in U.S. hospitals over the past 15 years despite implementation of preventive guidelines and the wide-spread use of validated risk assessment tools. Most preventive efforts have been focused primarily on patients who are bed-ridden or immobile for extended periods. What has not been well studied or identified is the risk for pressure injury to patients undergoing diagnostic procedures in hospital ancillary units where extrinsic risk factors such as high interface pressures on procedure tables and friction and shear from positioning and transport can greatly magnify the effect of patient-specific intrinsic risk factors which might not otherwise put these patients at high risk on an inpatient unit. The purpose of this study was to develop a risk assessment tool designed explicitly to quantify
Allegheny County, PA continues to suffer between 100-120 homicides each year, with perhaps 2-3 times as many gunshot injuries that require hospitalization. Firearm homicides overwhelmingly affect African American men aged 15-35. Building on prior efforts in violence prevention, the investigators propose to launch a hospital trauma service intervention that will take advantage of a teachable moment in the emergency room. All four hospitals providing Level I Trauma services in Allegheny County have agreed to host the program, an evidence-based effort developed by the National Network of Hospital Violence Intervention (NNHVI). Adaptation of the NNHVI model will focus on the social networks of gunshot victims as well as the victims themselves. Intervention efforts will range from job training and mentoring to relocation to different communities. The investigators will offer the opportunity to participate in the research and receive the intervention to all gunshot victims identified in county Level ...

Employment-based health benefit programs have existed in the United States for more than 100 years. In the 1870s, for example, railroad, mining, and other industries began to provide the services of company doctors to workers. In 1910, Montgomery Ward entered into one of the earliest group insurance contracts. Prior to World War II, few Americans had health insurance, and most policies covered only hospital room, board, and ancillary services. During World War II, the number of persons with employment-based health insurance coverage started to increase for several reasons. When wages were frozen by the National War Labor Board and a shortage of workers occurred, employers sought ways to get around the wage controls in order to attract scarce workers, and offering health insurance was one option. Health insurance was an attractive means to recruit and retain workers during a labor shortage for two reasons: Unions supported employment-based health insurance, and workers health benefits were not ...

Most people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease do not know they have it. There are usually no symptoms. Your doctor can do tests to check your liver. There are three main tests: blood tests, radiology tests, and liver biopsy. Blood tests check the liver for injury, and can rule out other conditions that cause liver disease.. Radiology tests take pictures of your liver to check for fat and to rule out other diseases. The most common radiology test is an ultrasound, which uses sound waves and is painless. Two other radiology tests are computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For a CT scan, your doctor may give you a special dye to help see certain areas of your body. The dye may be given orally, rectally, or through an IV. Liver biopsy is the best way to diagnose certain kinds of liver disease, but it is not usually needed. Your doctor will decide if you need a liver biopsy. ...

Come cells depend critically on the surrounding microenvironment, or market, for their self-renewal and maintenance. the market structures. Writer Overview Come cells are essential for advancement and for regeneration and restoration of cells in an patient. The capability of adult come cells to maintain their stemness is dependent vitally on the localised microenvironment, or market. While very much can be known about how the 13602-53-4 supplier market manages come cell TMPRSS2 self-renewal and difference, systems for how the market can be taken care of during ageing are not really well realized. Using Drosophila testis as a model program, right here we demonstrate that a proteins we called Shriveled can be a secreted proteins that activates integrin signaling to protect specific niche market structures. We also display that Shriveled-dependent service of integrin maintains regular E-cadherin amounts in the market cells, offering a system for market maintenance. Curiously, upregulation of ...
Monopolistic Competition Price making abilities of individual firms Monopolistic Competition and Oligopoly Introduction to Monopolistic Competition Introduction to Monopolistic Competition The third market structure we will study gets is name from sharing some characteristics with pure monopoly and some with perfect competition. Below are some of the key characteristics of this market structure: Characteristic Monopolistic Competition Number of Firms Fairly large number of firms, each with a relatively small amount of market share Price making abilities of individual firms Firms are small relative to the industry, meaning changes in one firms output have only a slight impact on market price. While they are price-makers, demand will be relatively elastic compared to a pure monopolist Type of product Products are slightly differentiated. Firms will advertise to try and further differentiate product. Branding and advertising are used to attempt to increase demand for the firms product over competitors.
I would be happy to fill out what ever is needed. Vic gives needles for free also. I have myself only been on the pump for 5 weeks but think if ancillary cost were lower the use of the machine would go through the roof and maybe that is what the Government is concerned about the effect of making more infusion sets through NDSS. I myself use the Medical Specialty NDSS needles and bend them 30 degrees, they are only $15 and are more comfortable than the expensive ones but everyone has a personal choice to be able to make and we should be given the choice to use at small cost all different infusion sets available.

Results In the 12 months prior to introduction of the individual care plans, the 32 patients accounted for 858 ED attendances and 209 admissions to hospital. In 12 months after introduction of the care plans, the number of ED attendances fell to 517, with only 77 hospital admissions. Median number of hospital admissions (as a percentage of ED attendances) fell from 18.8% to 7.1% (p=0.014) after introduction of the care plan. There were also reductions in median number of ED attendances (19 vs 5, p=0.001), median number of radiology tests (4 vs 1, p=0.001) and median number of blood tests (55 vs 12, p,0.001). ...

The paper develops a simple three-sector model of a developing country with nominal wage rigidity, in which one sector is thought of as the primary sector and the other two are sectors in which the country can diversify. The paper then analyzes the relationship between the market structure of the nonprimary sectors and equilibrium adjustments to shocks in the primary sector. In particular, the paper examines under what conditions the country should promote one nonprimary sector over another. Among other things, it argues that developing countries should promote those sectors that are more integrated with the outside world

Prescription opioid dependence is increasing and creates a significant public health burden, but office-based physicians lack evidence-based guidelines to decide between maintenance or detoxification treatment with buprenorphine/naloxone. The proposed study compares buprenorphine/naloxone maintenance (Mtn) vs. detoxification (Dtx) in a 18-week randomized clinical trail in a heterogeneous population of prescription opioid dependent patients (N=120) in a primary care clinic. Patients are randomized to Mtn or Dtx after a 2-week induction period. Mtn is designed to reflect usual care by primary care physicians and includes weekly drug counseling (DC) and referral to ancillary services. Dtx and Mtn will be identical for the first 4 weeks (stabilization) following randomization. In Mtn, buprenorphine/naloxone will continue unchanged for the remainder of the study. In Dtx, the dosage of buprenorphine/naloxone will be tapered to zero over the next 3 weeks, and patients will not receive additional ...
A consecutive series of 397 myelograms performed in 385 patients over a six month period at the Mersey Regional Neurosciences Unit is reported. The reasons for performing the myelogram were to identify the cause of a radicular lesion in 54% of patients, a chronic spinal cord lesion in 30%, an acute cord lesion in 9%, suspected disease at the level of the foramen magnum 6%, and for a variety of other conditions in 8%. For the 385 patients undergoing a myelogram in the study period, the median interval from admission to request, request to myelography and from myelography to discharge was nought, one and three days respectively. The proportion of patients submitted to myelography by individual consultants ranged from 7% to 28%. There was a two-fold variation in the delays in the time to requesting and performing myelograms. There was room for improvement in the clinical information supplied on the myelography request form. The role of ancillary investigations and their effect on myelography was ...

Basic ancillary investigations should be performed before any genetic test in the diagnostic work-up of HD-like syndromes. A number of routine blood tests are necessary to differentiate HD from non-progressive causes of chorea. Most of these causes, however, present with an acute or subacute onset, and therefore display a very different course from heredodegenerative HD-like syndromes. A detailed overview of these non-genetic choreas is beyond the scope of this work and has been the object of other review articles.40. Some laboratory tests are, however, useful also when facing a clearly progressive hereditary HD-like syndrome. An increased serum activity of creatine kinase and liver enzymes is frequently observed in chorea-acanthocytosis and McLeod syndrome. Low serum ferritin levels can be found in a proportion of patients with neuroferritinopathy, whereas abnormal copper studies-particularly increased 24 h urinary copper excretion-support a diagnosis of WD, or aceruloplasminemia if ...

Our study aimed to provide health economic data to inform the development of the Hungarian cervical cancer prevention program. First, the national program needs to address the problem of the inefficiency of the current screening program [5, 6]. We have previously developed a health economic model to support this decision making process [7]. Furthermore, with the introduction of vaccination against cervical cancer, a new policy question was raised: whether to include the vaccination of adolescent girls in the cervical cancer prevention program. We aimed to analyze this question from a health economic perspective.. Our modeling results predicted that adding vaccination of adolescent girls with the AS04-adjuvanted human papillomavirus 16/18 vaccine to the national cervical cancer screening program would be cost-effective in Hungary. Although our results were quite robust to the uncertainty in the input parameters, larger changes in the most influential parameters could considerably change the ...

This paper investigates how long-run technological change and productivity growth in service industries differ from manufacturing by linking qualitative and quantitative approaches from management science (organisation level), industrial economics (industry level), and economic history (long-run productivity effect on the economy). It hypothesises that some services can be industrialised, and that this coincides with a sharp rise in sunk costs (such as R&D or advertising), market size, and productivity, a shift from process to product innovations, and the replacement of typical, representative firms by a few historically specific quasi-unique entrepreneurial firms with decisively large market shares. Because of inadequate measurement and industry/market definition, this industrialisation of services and the attendant productivity and welfare gains have not sufficiently been identified. The analysis of the shift from a fragmented to a highly concentrated industry structure also provides ...
