Waking the health plan giant: Group Health Cooperative stops counting sheep and starts counting key tobacco indicators. (2/1272)

Implementing a comprehensive approach to decreasing tobacco use in a large health plan requires hard work and commitment on the part of many individuals. We found that major organisational change can be accomplished and sustained. Keys to our success included our decision to remove access barriers to our cessation programmes (including cost); obtaining top leadership buy-in; identifying accountable individuals who owned responsibility for change; measuring key processes and outcomes; and finally keeping at it tenaciously through multiple cycles of improvement.  (+info)

Patient waiting times in a physician's office. (3/1272)

This observational study measured waiting times, appointment durations, and scheduling variables of a single family practice physician. Waiting time and appointment duration in four sequential groups of sessions were compared using analysis of variance; each group used different scheduling templates. Groups 1 and 2 used a 15-minute base interval; group 3 used a 20-minute base interval. Observations for group 4 were collected at a different health center using a 15-minute base interval. Scheduling variables were correlated with waiting time using correlation coefficients, and data were collected on 1783 appointments. The best waiting time (mean +/- SD) was 17.33 +/- 19.19 minutes. The mean appointment duration for this group was 17.99 +/- 7.97 minutes. The F statistic comparing the four groups of sessions for waiting times was 34.14 and for appointment duration was 37.37, both of which are significant (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficient for waiting time with queue was 0.2474 (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficients for mean waiting time and lateness of starting a session (0.4530), patients per hour (0.3461), and patients per session (0.3674) were all significant (P < 0.001). Both scheduling and patient flow affect patient waiting times. The best schedule would consist of shorter sessions that started on time and were extended to accommodate extra patients rather than adding in patients and crowding the schedule. In addition to reducing the actual waiting times, the perception of waiting can be managed to minimize patient dissatisfaction.  (+info)

Experience measuring performance improvement in multiphase picture archiving and communications systems implementations. (4/1272)

When planning a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) implementation and determining which equipment will be implemented in earlier and later phases, collection and analysis of selected data will aid in setting implementation priorities. If baseline data are acquired relative to performance objectives, the same information used for implementation planning can be used to measure performance improvement and outcomes. The main categories of data to choose from are: (1) financial data; (2) productivity data; (3) operational parameters; (4) clinical data; and (5) information about customer satisfaction. In the authors' experience, detailed workflow data have not proved valuable in measuring PACS performance and outcomes. Reviewing only one category of data in planning will not provide adequate basis for targeting operational improvements that will lead to the most significant gains. Quality improvement takes into account all factors in production: human capacity, materials, operating capital and assets. Once we have identified key areas of focus for quality improvement in each phase, we can translate objectives into implementation requirements and finally into detailed functional and performance requirements. Here, Integration Resources reports its experience measuring PACS performance relative to phased implementation strategies for three large medical centers. Each medical center had its own objectives for overcoming image management, physical/geographical, and functional/technical barriers. The report outlines (1) principal financial and nonfinancial measures used as performance indicators; (2) implementation strategies chosen by each of the three medical centers; and (3) the results of those strategies as compared with baseline data.  (+info)

The philosophy of benchmark testing a standards-based picture archiving and communications system. (5/1272)

The Department of Defense issued its requirements for a Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS) in a Request for Proposals (RFP) to industry in January 1997, with subsequent contracts being awarded in November 1997 to the Agfa Division of Bayer and IBM Global Government Industry. The Government's technical evaluation process consisted of evaluating a written technical proposal as well as conducting a benchmark test of each proposed system at the vendor's test facility. The purpose of benchmark testing was to evaluate the performance of the fully integrated system in a simulated operational environment. The benchmark test procedures and test equipment were developed through a joint effort between the Government, academic institutions, and private consultants. Herein the authors discuss the resources required and the methods used to benchmark test a standards-based PACS.  (+info)

Benchmark testing the Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System proposal of the Department of Defense. (6/1272)

The Department of Defense issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for its next generation Picture Archiving and Communications System in January of 1997. The RFP was titled Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS). Benchmark testing of the proposed vendors' systems occurred during the summer of 1997. This article highlights the methods for test material and test system organization, the major areas tested, and conduct of actual testing. Department of Defense and contract personnel wrote test procedures for benchmark testing based on the important features of the DIN-PACS Request for Proposal. Identical testing was performed with each vendor's system. The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard images used for the Benchmark Testing included all modalities. The images were verified as being DICOM standard compliant by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Electronic Radiology Laboratory. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory prepared the Unix-based server for the DICOM images and operated it during testing. The server was loaded with the images and shipped to each vendor's facility for on-site testing. The Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia (DSCP), the Department of Defense agency managing the DIN-PACS contract, provided representatives at each vendor site to ensure all tests were performed equitably and without bias. Each vendor's system was evaluated in the following nine major areas: DICOM Compliance; System Storage and Archive of Images; Network Performance; Workstation Performance; Radiology Information System Performance; Composite Health Care System/Health Level 7 communications standard Interface Performance; Teleradiology Performance; Quality Control; and Failover Functionality. These major sections were subdivided into workable test procedures and were then scored. A combined score for each section was compiled from this data. The names of the involved vendors and the scoring for each is contract sensitive and therefore can not be discussed. All of the vendors that underwent the benchmark testing did well. There was no one vendor that was markedly superior or inferior. There was a typical bell shaped curve of abilities. Each vendor had their own strong points and weaknesses. A standardized benchmark protocol and testing system for PACS architectures would be of great value to all agencies planning to purchase a PACS. This added information would assure the purchased system meets the needed functional requirements as outlined by the purchasers PACS Request for Proposal.  (+info)

The development of a quality information system: a case study of Mexico. (7/1272)

One of the primary obstacles in the implementation of continuous quality improvement (CQI) programmes in developing countries is the lack of timely and appropriate information for decentralized decision-making. The integrated quality information system (QIS) described herein demonstrates Mexico's unique effort to package four separate, yet mutually reinforcing, tools for the generation and use of quality-related information at all levels of the Mexican national health care system. The QIS is one element of the continuous quality improvement programme administered by the Secretariat of Health in Mexico. Mexico's QIS was designed to be flexible and capable of adapting to local needs, while at the same time allowing for the standardization of health care quality assurance indicators, and subsequent ability to measure and compare the quality performance of health facilities nationwide. The flexibility of the system extends to permit the optimal use of available data by health care managers at all levels of the health care system, as well as the generation of new information in important areas often neglected in more traditional information systems. Mexico's QIS consists of four integrated components: 1) a set of client and provider surveys, to assess specific issues in the quality of health services delivered; 2) client and provider national satisfaction surveys; 3) a sentinel health events strategy; and 4) a national Comparative Performance Evaluation System, for use by the Secretariate of Health for the quality assessment of state and provincial health care services (internal benchmarking). The QIS represents another step in Mexico's ongoing effort to use data for effective decision-making in the planning, monitoring and evaluation of services delivered by the national health care system. The design and application of Mexico's QIS provides a model for decentralized decision-making that could prove useful for developing countries, where the effective use of quality indicators is often limited. Further, the system could serve as a mechanism for motivating positive change in the way information is collected and used in the process of ensuring high quality health care service delivery.  (+info)

Inter-hospital comparison of mortality rates. (8/1272)

OBJECTIVE: To compare crude and adjusted in-hospital mortality rates after prostatectomy between hospitals using routinely collected hospital discharge data and to illustrate the value and limitations of using comparative mortality rates as a surrogate measure of quality of care. METHODS: Mortality rates for non-teaching hospitals (n = 21) were compared to a single notional group of teaching hospitals. Patients age, disease (comorbidity), length of stay, emergency admission, and hospital location were identified using ICD-9-CM coded Victorian hospital morbidity data from public hospitals collected between 1987/88 and 1994/95. Comparisons between hospitals were based on crude and adjusted odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) derived using univariate and multivariate logistic regression. Model fit was evaluated using receiver operating characteristic curve i.e. statistic, Somer's D, Tau-a, and R2. RESULTS: The overall crude mortality rates between hospitals achieved borderline significance (alpha2=31.31; d.f.=21; P=0.06); these differences were no longer significant after adjustment (chi2=25.68; P=0.21). On crude analysis of mortality rates, four hospitals were initially identified as 'low' outlier hospitals; after adjustment, none of these remained outside the 95% CI, whereas a new hospital emerged as a 'high' outlier (OR=4.56; P= 0.05). The adjusted ORs between hospitals compared to the reference varied from 0.21 to 5.54, ratio = 26.38. The model provided a good fit to the data (c=0.89; Somer's D= (0.78; Tau-a = 0.013; R2= 0.24). CONCLUSIONS: Regression adjustment of routinely collected data on prostatectomy from the Victorian Inpatient Minimum Database reduced variance associated with age and correlates of illness severity. Reduction of confounding in this way is a move in the direction of exploring differences in quality of care between hospitals. Collection of such information over time, together with refinement of data collection would provide indicators of change in quality of care that could be explored in more detail as appropriate in the clinical setting.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Huggins R. Regional competitive intelligence: benchmarking and policy-making, Regional Studies. Benchmarking exercises have become increasingly popular within the sphere of regional policy-making. This paper analyses the concept of regional benchmarking and its links with regional policy-making processes. It develops a typology of regional benchmarking exercises and benchmarkers, and critically reviews the literature. It is argued that critics of regional benchmarking fail to take account of the variety and development of regional benchmarking systems. It is suggested that while benchmarking exercises are informing policy adaptation and innovation, they have been constrained by political and financial factors. It is concluded that regional benchmarking is facilitating the heightened regional interaction necessitated by globalization. [image omitted] Huggins R.

Downloadable! This study proposes a managerial accounting research design that bridges a gap between firm productivity based on frontier techniques and strategic management. In doing so, it operationalizes the theoretical frameworks based on the endogenous components of across-firms heterogeneous resources and routines, which are fundamental for firm performance. The design focuses on industry-level benchmarking to analyze changes in performance and organizational knowledge investments, and proposes some indicators for firm-level strategic benchmarking. An analysis of a twelve-years panel of the U.S. technology hardware and equipment industry illustrates the usefulness of the proposals. Findings reveal wider gaps between better and worse performers following economic distress. Increasing intangibles stocks is positively associated with changes in frontier benchmarking, while enhancing R&D spending is linked to frontier shifts. The discussion develops managerial interpretations suitable for control and
A questionnaire was designed and piloted with the help of a consulting firm with expertise in benchmarking. In all, the questionnaire was distributed to a sample of 15 operating offices in headquarters and the six regions. Three main elements were incorporated in the questionnaire. First, questions relating to the level of responsibilities of the respondent and the business profile of their operations. Second, questions on the level of resources (FTEs) used to support the finance functions and their associated processes. This approach assumed that the people cost is the main driver of cost within the finance functions. Third, whether the office was applying formal or informal measures (including the set of measures developed earlier) for measuring performance in each of the areas covered by the study and if so, what they were. This was a precursor to the main survey and the results were used to develop the main survey questionnaire.. Choose benchmarking partners. The search for benchmarking ...

Computational methods provide approaches to identify epitopes in protein Ags to help characterizing potential biomarkers identified by high-throughput genomic or proteomic experiments. PEPOP version 1.0 was developed as an antigenic or immunogenic peptide prediction tool. We have now improved this tool by implementing 32 new methods (PEPOP version 2.0) to guide the choice of peptides that mimic discontinuous epitopes and thus potentially able to replace the cognate protein Ag in its interaction with an Ab. In the present work, we describe these new methods and the benchmarking of their performances. Benchmarking was carried out by comparing the peptides predicted by the different methods and the corresponding epitopes determined by X-ray crystallography in a dataset of 75 Ag-Ab complexes. The Sensitivity (Se) and Positive Predictive Value (PPV) parameters were used to assess the performance of these methods.

On July 10th Architelos released the first NameSentry Report, benchmarking abuse levels in the domain name industry. For some time now, a debate has raged about the potential impact of new gTLDs on Internet safety and security, namely abusive registrations such as phishing, spam, malware, and so on. However, without benchmarking the current state, how can we realistically evaluate if new gTLDs have made any measureable difference in the level of abuse?

The Benchmarks Regulation is directly applicable regulation in the Member States.. The Regulation entered into force on 30 June 2016 but, excluding certain exemptions on critical benchmarks, it was not applicable until 1 January 2018.. Administrators located in the EU that provided benchmarks already before 30 June 2016 may continue the provision of benchmarks without authorisation or registration under the transitional provisions until 1 January 2020 or, if the benchmark is a critical benchmark, until 31 December 2021. Supervised entities may also continue the use of benchmarks until the end of the transition periods. In accordance with ESMAs interpretation, the same also applies to administrators that begin the provision of benchmarks after 30 June 2016 but before 1 January 2018, but not to new benchmarks provided by them after 1 January 2018.. According to ESMAs interpretation, such benchmarks provided by an administrator located in a third country that are not included in the ESMA register ...

The findings from this first-ever assessment of levels and trends in coverage of key MCH interventions across districts in Zambia show that substantial progress has been made in scaling up interventions such as malaria control and pentavalent immunization, as well as EBF. At the same time, stagnation and declines of intervention coverage occurred for routine services such as ANC4, SBA, and polio immunization. This district-level analysis revealed marked inequalities in coverage, particularly for maternal health interventions. Rates of progress for routine services varied substantially across districts, while rapidly scaled up interventions showed more uniform improvements across the country. Benchmarking performance of districts in delivering key interventions offers important insights and action points for policymakers, enabling them to identify underperforming districts and interventions with declining trends, as well as understand the largest disparities across districts.. This study revealed ...

Todays tools for benchmarking or load testing systems prior to deployment, make the work of analysts easier and more effective. With browser-enabled applications, performance testing can begin earlier than with traditional development platforms. Testing for sizing purposes can begin with the first functional version of new applications. This early testing can provide sizing estimates for future benchmark labs, product marketing models, focus on optimization opportunities, and preliminary platform configurations. This talk will explore early testing of a Web application based on Active Server Pages and Microsoft Internet Information Server, but could apply to any n-tier architecture. The features of load testing tools that will be demonstrated include capture of real user actions to create a virtual user script, enhancement of scripts to represent a realistic community of users, monitoring of virtual users and platforms during a test, and finally analysis and reporting of the results ...
In 2005 the geological surveys of Norway (NGU), Finland (GTK) and Great Britain (BGS) took part in a joint benchmarking exercise to compare practices, performance, strategies etc. at the survey laboratories. The ultimate purpose of the exercise was to provide a benchmark for improving laboratory performance, and help each laboratory and its parent survey prepare for up-coming strategic challenges. The laboratories are different in scales: NGU has the smallest laboratory operated at 19 manpower years (MPY) and GTK has the largest with 115 MPY. The BGS laboratories emplyed 44 MPY. The survey laboratories also have differing strategies with regards to commercial operation. Where the NGU laboratories bill 95% of the data production internally, the internal services at GTK and BGS laboratories accounts for only 50 and 35% respectively. In terms of relative spending in administration and production, R&D, level of investment, earnings, applications and equipment, as well as future expectations the ...

Internet-Draft Benchmarking IPsec - Terminology March 2006 Oakley [RFC2412] and SKEME [SKEME] key exchanges inside the ISAKMP framework. While IKE can be used with other protocols, its initial implementation is with the IPsec protocol. IKE provides authentication of the IPsec peers, negotiates IPsec security associations, and establishes IPsec keys. The AH and ESP protocols each support two modes of operation: transport mode and tunnel mode. In transport mode, two hosts provide protection primarily for upper-layer protocols. The cryptographic endpoints (where the encryption and decryption take place) are the source and destination of the data packet. In IPv4, a transport mode security protocol header appears immediately after the IP header and before any higher-layer protocols (such as TCP or UDP). In IPv6, the security protocol header appears after the base IP header and selected extension headers. It may appear before or after destination options but must appear before next layer protocols ...

A system and a method is disclosed for analyzing, benchmarking and tuning an object oriented database (OODB) and applications with a trace based technique. Code associated with the application is augmented with a plurality of instructions that define the production of an application execution trace and a database layout trace during execution of the application with a database. A precompiler or manual or automatic techniques are used to augment source code associated with the application. Alternatively, an instrumentor can be employed to augment object code associated with the application. A simulator employs the database layout trace and the application execution trace to simulate the execution of the application with an OODB selected by the user. The simulator may be ported to different OODBs or platforms. The simulator produces results associated with the simulation for input to a data analyzer. The data analyzer includes a user interface that enables a user to modify the simulation and can display

The core research in the lab is broadly divided into three main themes:. 1. Short Linear Motifs (SLiMs). SLiMs are short regions of proteins that mediate interactions with other proteins. A major focus of the lab is the computational prediction of SLiMs from protein sequences. This research originated with Richs postdoctoral research, during which he developed a sequence analysis methods for the rational design of biologically active short peptides. He subsequently developed SLiMDisc, one of the first algorithms for successfully predicting novel SLiMs from sequence data - and coined the term "SLiM" into the bargain. This subsequently lead to the development of SLiMFinder, the first SLiM prediction algorithm able to estimate the statistical significance of motif predictions. SLiMFinder greatly increased the reliability of predictions. SLiMFinder has since spawned a number of motif discovery tools and webservers and is still arguably the most successful SLiM prediction tool on benchmarking data. ...

MOTIVATION: Short linear motifs (SLiMs) are important mediators of protein-protein interactions. Their short and degenerate nature presents a challenge for computational discovery. We sought to improve SLiM discovery by incorporating evolutionary information, since SLiMs are more conserved than surrounding residues.. RESULTS: We have developed a new method that assesses the evolutionary signal of a residue in its sequence and structural context. Under-conserved residues are masked out prior to SLiM discovery, allowing incorporation into the existing statistical model employed by SLiMFinder. The method shows considerable robustness in terms of both the conservation score used for individual residues and the size of the sequence neighbourhood. Optimal parameters significantly improve return of known functional motifs from benchmarking data, raising the return of significant validated SLiMs from typical human interaction datasets from 20% to 60%, while retaining the high level of stringency needed ...

Physical storage (disk space). This is simply to say that there are many devices and possible bottlenecks to take into account. If you were to measure the throughput of the physical storage you could come up with huge differences depending on what data you have. The throughput of small files is certainly much less than it is for big ones, simply because the read/write heads have to be adjusted more often if small files are written. And writing data takes always a bit more time than reading it. So, even if you find performance data or benchmarks you should be very careful in interpreting them. Benchmarks can give you an idea about the level of performance that particular device is operating in but you must also understand what the test environment is since its so important to the outcome. For this reason, you can seldom compare two benchmarks easily.. There is a rule of thumb that says, that a 10% difference in benchmarked performance is no difference at all. Unless the performance of two ...
This paper takes three abstract programs, translates them into several different error handling strategies, then benchmarks roughly a thousand nop-randomized versions of those programs, all on one machine. Ideally, there would be many machines of different architectures and micro-architectures used. There would be dozens, or hundreds of abstract programs chosen, and all performance differences would be root caused. The results would then be run through rigorous statistical devices, correlating the results of the abstract programs and giving confidence values. The author doesnt have the time, resources, or expertise for that. The author (arguably) has the time, resources, and expertise to benchmark more than just one abstract program.. These programs perform virtually no "real" work. In many production scenarios, the costs of error handling will be hidden through out-of-order execution in combination with expensive operations like I/O, synchronization, memory operations, and "large" math ...

This thesis adds to the area of register based research, with a particular focus on health care quality and (in)equality. Contributions are made to the areas of hospital performance benchmarking, mediation analysis, and regression when the outcome variable is limited, with applications related to Riksstroke (the Swedish stroke register).. An important part of quality assurance is to identify, follow up, and understand the mechanisms of inequalities in outcome and/or care between different population groups. The first paper of the thesis uses Riksstroke data to investigate socioeconomic differences in survival during different time periods after stroke. The second paper focuses on differences in performance between hospitals, illustrating the diagnostic properties of a method for benchmarking hospital performance and highlighting the importance of balancing clinical relevance and the statistical evidence level used.. Understanding the mechanisms behind observed differences is a complicated but ...
NNThroughputBenchmark, as its name indicates, is a name-node throughput benchmark, which runs a series of client threads on a single node against a name-node. If no name-node is configured, it will firstly start a name-node in the same process (standalone mode), in which case each client repetitively performs the same operation by directly calling the respective name-node methods. Otherwise, the benchmark will perform the operations against a remote name-node via client protocol RPCs (remote mode). Either way, all clients are running locally in a single process rather than remotely across different nodes. The reason is to avoid communication overhead caused by RPC connections and serialization, and thus reveal the upper bound of pure name-node performance.. The benchmark first generates inputs for each thread so that the input generation overhead does not effect the resulting statistics. The number of operations performed by threads is practically the same. Precisely, the difference between the ...

Google is trying to establish an independent cloud benchmark, driven by a new tool called PerfKit Benchmarker.. The tools open source, but Googles not being entirely charitable: it says it created the tool because customers struggled to compare apples to apples when assessing the performance of Googles cloud and rival offerings.". Google says the tool will measure "the end to end time to provision resources in the cloud, in addition to reporting on the most standard metrics of peak performance." The upshot will be "... a way to easily benchmark across cloud platforms, while getting a transparent view of application throughput, latency, variance, and overhead.". All of which sounds lovely, save for the fact that Google has an obvious interest in such a tool pointing out just how awesome its cloud is. The Chocolate Factory has at least collaborated on the effort, and sought "input" from "other cloud providers, analysts, and experts from academia" to create the tool. Theres also a thirty-strong ...
by Geoff Gasior 5:50 AM on June 25, 2003 Slashdot has secured a response to recent allegations of cooked benchmark results in the G5 launch from Apples own vice president of hardware product marketing. The response rationalizes a number of issues that critics have had with Apples performance presentation for the G5, but many concerns remain unanswered. And still, we have no idea how an Athlon or Opteron would perform under Apple or VeriTests benchmark conditions. That omission will only drive the curious to the real world for comparative performance numbers for AMDs processors. It would appear that the real world isnt as stacked in the G5s favor as Apples deck.. ...
We benchmarked the performance of our method against 7 previously published methods for cancer gene identification based on the sequencing data of 11,873 samples spanning 28 different cancer types. The exact number of samples per cancer type can be found in Extended Data Fig. 5. To benchmark the performance of a method, we sorted genes according to the significance values (adjusted for multiple testing) returned by the method. As a conservative approximation of the true-positive rate we used Cancer Gene Census (CGC) genes (a, b, c) and OncoKB genes (d, e, f) to derive ROC and precision-recall curves. We quantified the performance of each method as the area under the ROC curve (AUC) for the top 150 (a, d) or 1000 (b, e) non-CGC/OncoKB genes, respectively. Further, we determined the precision at 5% recall for each method (c, f). We normalized these measures to the maximum within each cancer type. ...

Skokie, Ill.) December 12, 2019 - Medication errors account for 3.5 million physician office and 1 million emergency room visits per year. Affecting more than 7 million patients, preventable medication errors generate nearly $21 billion in associated health care costs annually. i Medication reconciliation, which involves making the most accurate list of medications a patient is currently using and comparing it with any existing lists, helps mitigate the risk of adverse drug events (ADEs). This fostering of communication between providers and patients helps track that patients are taking medications as recommended and that medications are not contraindicated by patient allergies or with other medications. However, findings from the AAAHC Institute for Quality Improvements January-June 2019 benchmarking study on medication reconciliation indicate many ambulatory health care organizations struggle with thoroughly documenting, updating, and verifying medication records, leading to an increased risk ...
This study is a collaborative quality assurance initiative organized by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Cross Network (BCBSM/BCN) for initiation of insurance coverage of coronary artery CT scanning (CCTA), a relatively new procedure that can provide non-invasive coronary angiograms. While this procedure has promise in that it can rapidly diagnose patients with unknown chest pain and reduce the cost of medical care, there is substantial potential for abuse and excess cost and inappropriate care if not appropriately used.. The Consortiums objectives are to educate participating sites of the clinical uses of CCTA as well as other best-practice recommendations; to create a database (Registry) to develop evidence of the best-practice utilization of CCTA; to provide a feedback mechanism to the sites about the positive or negative evidence of best-practice utilization of CCTA; to develop strategies to improve the utilization of CCTA; to monitor the CQI process of the individual ...
INTRODUCTION: The 2008 National Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction Audit demonstrated marked variation in the practice and outcomes of breast reconstruction in the UK. To standardise practice and improve outcomes for patients, the British professional associations developed best-practice guidelines with specific guidance for newer mesh-assisted implant-based techniques. We explored the degree of uptake of best-practice guidelines within units performing implant-based reconstruction (IBBR) as the first phase of the implant Breast Reconstruction Evaluation (iBRA) study. METHODS: A questionnaire developed by the iBRA Steering Group was completed by trainee and consultant leads at breast and plastic surgical units across the UK. Simple summary statistics were calculated for each survey item to assess compliance with current best-practice guidelines. RESULTS: 81 units from 79 NHS Trusts completed the questionnaire. Marked variation was observed in adherence to guidelines, especially those relating to
According to 1995 standards published by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), time limited passive care followed by active care is the key.9 This is the benchmark for care of spinal disorders. Manipulation has more evidence for its effectiveness than any single modality for pain less than four weeks old.10 Chiropractors perform over 95 percent of all manipulations and are the most qualified to perform this service. As MCOs begin to incorporate the new guidelines they will want DCs to serve both as primary care triage doctors and subspecialists for acute/subacute care. Patient dissatisfaction with limited access to quality care will certainly facilitate this transition. But where do chiropractors fit in after the first month of care? Can we manage the full spectrum of conservative care, including rehabilitation? LACCs diplomate course in rehabilitation fully prepares chiropractors to be active rehabilitation specialists. The knowledge and especially the skills to ...

Abstract. Issue: Medicare Advantage (MA), the program that allows people to receive their Medicare benefits through private health plans, uses a benchmark-and-bidding system to induce plans to provide benefits at lower costs. However, prior research suggests medical costs, profits, and other plan costs are not as low under this system as they might otherwise be.. Goal: To examine how well the current system encourages MA plans to bid their lowest cost by examining the relationship between costs and bonuses (rebates) and the benchmarks Medicare uses in determining plan payments.. Methods: Regression analysis using 2015 data for HMO and local PPO plans.. Findings: Costs and rebates are higher for MA plans in areas with higher benchmarks, and plan costs vary less than benchmarks do. A one-dollar increase in benchmarks is associated with 32-cent-higher plan costs and a 52-cent-higher rebate, even when controlling for market and plan factors that can affect costs. This suggests the current ...

Do healthy employees deliver a healthy bottom line for corporate America? This question has been hotly debated over the years, and a new study from the nonprofit Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO) suggests a correlation between comprehensive, best-practice wellness programs and corporate stock performance.. The study found that companies that scored high on HEROs scorecard for employee health and well-being practices (compiled with HR consultancy Mercer) outperformed the 500 largest U.S. companies listed on the Standard & Poors 500 Index over a six-year period, which suggests that effectively run companies share a common practice of investing in workplace health and well-being.. The study, "Linking Workplace Health Promotion Best Practices and Organizational Financial Performance," published in the January issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, tracked the stock performance of 45 publicly traded companies that earned top scores on the HERO scorecard. From ...
