Corporate nuclear medicine: the implementation of a centralized management model. (1/21)

OBJECTIVE: A trend in corporate healthcare is the merging of small community hospitals with larger regional hospitals to expand the patient base. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the benefits of operating several nuclear medicine departments under a centralized management system, rather than operating many decentralized departments. The issues discussed are the development, financial benefits, operations, and structure of a corporate nuclear medicine department. METHODS: Seven nuclear medicine departments were integrated to form one corporate nuclear medicine department from a large hospital organization comprising seven different hospitals. The management team created the concept and advised administration. Training programs were designed and implemented, and committees were formed to ensure the efficient operation of the integrated department. All aspects of the department, such as scheduling and interpretation of studies, are managed at a central location. All technologists rotate to all hospitals. Success was measured by cost savings, study turn-around times, and evaluation of patient and employee satisfaction. RESULTS: It was found that establishing a corporate nuclear medicine department created a greater patient base by servicing a larger geographic area, and resulted in savings of $870,000 annually. Standardizing procedures and protocols allowed for consistency in patient care, an inpatient turnaround time of 24 h, and a dictated report turnaround time of 30 min. Employee relations and satisfaction remained consistent with a 4.76 out of a 5.0 leadership index rating. CONCLUSION: A nuclear medicine department with a centralized management system is a viable option for corporate health care. It is recommended for operations endeavoring to expand the patient base and improve the financial picture.  (+info)

The Sheffield experiment: the effects of centralising accident and emergency services in a large urban setting. (2/21)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of centralisation of accident and emergency (A&E) services in a large urban setting. The end points were the quality of patient care judged by time to see a doctor or nurse practitioner, time to admission and the cost of the A&E service as a whole. METHODS: Sheffield is a large industrial city with a population of 471000. In 1994 Sheffield health authority took a decision to centralise a number of services including the A&E services. This study presents data collected over a three year period before, during and after the centralisation of adult A&E services from two sites to one site and the centralisation of children's A&E services to a separate site. A minor injury unit was also established along with an emergency admissions unit. The study used information from the A&E departments' computer system and routinely available financial data. RESULTS: There has been a small decrease in the number of new patient attendances using the Sheffield A&E system. Most patients go to the correct department. The numbers of acute admissions through the adult A&E have doubled. Measures of process efficiency show some improvement in times to admission. There has been measurable deterioration in the time to be seen for minor injuries in the A&E departments. This is partly offset by the very good waiting time to be seen in the minor injuries unit. The costs of providing the service within Sheffield have increased. CONCLUSION: Centralisation of A&E services in Sheffield has led to concentration of the most ill patients in a single adult department and separate paediatric A&E department. Despite a greatly increased number of admissions at the adult site this change has not resulted in increased waiting times for admission because of the transfer of adequate beds to support the changes. There has however been a deterioration in the time to see a clinician, especially in the A&E departments. The waiting times at the minor injury unit are very short.  (+info)

Equity of access to tertiary hospitals in Wales: a travel time analysis. (3/21)

BACKGROUND: The objective of the study was to investigate the implications for equity of geographical access for population subgroups arising from hypothetical scenarios of change in configuration of National Health Service tertiary hospital service provision located in Wales. METHODS: For each of three scenarios, the status quo and centralization of services to one of two locations, we used a travel time road length matrix in geographical information software to calculate the proportion of the population living within 30, 60, 90 and 120 min travel of each hospital site and the associated mean, median and 90th percentile travel times. We analysed data for the total resident population of Wales, for residents aged 75 or more years, for residents of the most deprived 10 per cent of enumeration districts, and for residents of rural areas. RESULTS: Centralization of services reduces geographical access for all population subgroups. Access varies between population subgroups, both between and within different scenarios of service configuration. A change in service configuration may improve access for one subgroup but reduce access for another. The interpretation may also vary according to whether the defined cut point for comparing access is based on short or long travel times. Measurements of absolute and relative access are sensitive to the assumed travel speeds. CONCLUSION: Access for the total population does not imply equity of access for subgroups of the population. Comparisons of access between scenarios are dependent on which measure of access is the indicator of choice. Results are sensitive to the road network travel speeds and further local validation may be necessary. This method can provide explicit information to health service planners on the effects on equity of access from a change in service configuration.  (+info)

Reexamining organizational configurations: an update, validation, and expansion of the taxonomy of health networks and systems. (4/21)

OBJECTIVES: To (a) assess how the original cluster categories of hospital-led health networks and systems have changed over time; (b) identify any new patterns of cluster configurations; and (c) demonstrate how additional data can be used to refine and enhance the taxonomy measures. DATA SOURCES; 1994 and 1998 American Hospital Association (AHA) Annual Survey of Hospitals. STUDY DESIGN: As in the original taxonomy, separate cluster solutions are identified for health networks and health systems by applying three strategic/structural dimensions (differentiation, integration, and centralization) to three components of the health service/product continuum (hospital services, physician arrangements, and provider-based insurance activities). DATA EXTRACTION METHODS: Factor, cluster, and discriminant analyses are used to analyze the 1998 data. Descriptive and comparative methods are used to analyze the updated 1998 taxonomy relative to the original 1994 version. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The 1998 cluster categories are similar to the original taxonomy, however, they reveal some new organizational configurations. For the health networks, centralization of product/service lines is occurring more selectively than in the past. For the health systems, participation has grown in and dispersed across a more diverse set of decentralized organizational forms. For both networks and systems, the definition of centralization has changed over time. CONCLUSIONS: In its updated form, the taxonomy continues to provide policymakers and practitioners with a descriptive and contextual framework against which to assess organizational programs and policies. There is a need to continue to revisit the taxonomy from time to time because of the persistent evolution of the U.S. health care industry and the consequent shifting of organizational configurations in this arena. There is also value in continuing to move the taxonomy in the direction of refinement/expansion as new opportunities become available.  (+info)

Surgery for primary supratentorial brain tumors in the United States, 1988 to 2000: the effect of provider caseload and centralization of care. (5/21)

Contemporary reports of patient outcomes after biopsy or resection of primary brain tumors typically reflect results at specialized centers. Such reports may not be representative of practices in nonspecialized settings. This analysis uses a nationwide hospital discharge database to examine trends in mortality and outcome at hospital discharge in 38,028 admissions for biopsy or resection of supratentorial primary brain tumors in adults between 1988 and 2000, particularly in relation to provider caseload. Multivariate analyses showed that large-volume centers had lower in-hospital postoperative mortality rates than centers with lighter caseloads, both for craniotomies (odds ratio [OR] 0.75 for a tenfold larger caseload) and for needle (closed) biopsies (OR 0.54). Adverse discharge disposition was also less likely at high-volume hospitals, both for craniotomies (OR 0.77) and for needle biopsies (OR 0.67). The annual number of surgical admissions increased by 53% during the 12-year study period, and in-hospital mortality rates decreased during this period, from 4.8% to 1.8%. Mortality rates decreased over time, both for craniotomies and for needle biopsies. Subgroup analyses showed larger relative mortality rate reductions at large-volume centers than at small-volume centers (73% vs. 43%, respectively). The number of US hospitals performing one or more craniotomies annually for primary brain tumors decreased slightly, and the number performing needle biopsies increased. There was little change in median hospital annual craniotomy caseloads, but the largest centers had disproportionate growth in volume. The 100 highest-caseload US hospitals accounted for an estimated 30% of the total US surgical primary brain tumor caseload in 1988 and 41% in 2000. Our findings do not establish minimum volume thresholds for acceptable surgical care of primary brain tumors. However, they do suggest a trend toward progressive centralization of craniotomies for primary brain tumor toward large-volume US centers during this interval.  (+info)

Use of a prospective risk analysis method to improve the safety of the cancer chemotherapy process. (6/21)

OBJECTIVE: To perform a risk analysis of the cancer chemotherapy process, by comparing five different organizations. To quantitatively demonstrate the usefulness of centralization and information technologies, to identify residual risks that may be the target of additional actions. STUDY DESIGN: A reengineering of the process started in 1999 and was planned to be finished in 2006. The analysis was performed after the centralization and at the beginning of information technologies integration. SETTING: Two thousand two hundred beds university hospital, with medical, surgical, haematological, gynaecological, geriatric, paediatric oncological departments. Twelve thousand cancer chemotherapies each year. METHODS: According to the failure modes, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) method, the failure modes were defined and their criticality indexes were calculated on the basis of the likelihood of occurrence, the potential severity for the patients, and the detection probability. Criticality indexes were compared and the acceptability of residual risks was evaluated. RESULTS: The sum of criticality indexes of 27 identified failure modes was 3596 for the decentralized phase, 2682 for centralization, 2385 for electronic prescription, 2081 for electronic production control, and 1824 for bedside scanning (49% global reduction). The greatest improvements concerned the risk of errors in the production protocols (by a factor of 48), followed by readability problems during transmission (14) and product/dose errors during the production (8). Among the six criticality indexes remaining superior to 100 in the final process, two were judged to be acceptable, whereas further improvements were planned for the four others. CONCLUSIONS: Centralization to the pharmacy was associated with a strong improvement but additional developments involving information technologies also contributed to a major risk reduction. A cost-effect analysis confirmed the pertinence of all developments, as the cost per gained criticality point remained stable all over the different phases.  (+info)

Centralization of care for patients with advanced-stage ovarian cancer: a cost-effectiveness analysis. (7/21)

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of centralized referral of patients with advanced-stage epithelial ovarian cancer who underwent primary cytoreductive surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS: A decision-analysis model was used to compare 2 referral strategies for patients with advanced-stage ovarian cancer: 1) referral to an expert center, with a rate of optimal primary cytoreduction of 75% and utilization of combined intraperitoneal and intravenous adjuvant chemotherapy, and 2) referral to a less experienced center, with a rate of optimal primary cytoreduction of 25% and adjuvant treatment that consisted predominantly of intravenous chemotherapy alone. The cost-effectiveness of each strategy was evaluated from the perspective of society. RESULTS: A cost-effectiveness analysis revealed that the strategy of expert center referral had an overall cost per patient of $50,652 and had an effectiveness of 5.12 quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). The strategy of referral to a less experienced center carried an overall cost of $39,957 and had an effectiveness of 2.33 QALYs. The expert center strategy was associated with an additional 2.78 QALYs at an incremental cost of $10,695 but was more cost-effective, with a cost-effective ratio of $9893 per QALY compared with $17,149 per QALY for the less experienced center referral strategy. Sensitivity analyses and a Monte Carlo simulation confirmed the robustness of the model. CONCLUSIONS: According to results from the decision-analysis model, centralized referral of patients with ovarian cancer to an expert center was a cost-effective healthcare strategy and represents a paradigm for quality cancer care, delivering superior patient outcomes at an economically affordable cost. Increased efforts to align current patterns of care with a universal strategy of centralized expert referral are warranted.  (+info)

With nationwide centralization of PD, the in-hospital mortality rate after this procedure decreased. Further centralization of PD is likely to decrease mortality further, especially in the elderly.
In all bilaterian animals investigated (with the exception of the nematodes), the Bmp signalling system sets up tissue polarity along the dorsoventral axis (Mizutani et al. 2005; Lowe et al. 2006; Levine & Brivanlou 2007; Yu et al. 2007). The Bmp system predates the emergence of the bilaterian CNS (Matus et al. 2006; Rentzsch et al. 2006) and was thus in place to be adapted for nervous system centralization, i.e. for the differential distribution of neuronal precursors along this axis. How similar is the role of Bmp signalling with respect to nervous system centralization in various bilaterians?. Whenever a CNS is present, it develops from the non-Bmp body side, in insects (Mizutani et al. 2005, 2006), vertebrates (Sasai et al. 1995; Levine & Brivanlou 2007), amphioxus (Yu et al. 2007) and also annelids (Denes et al. 2007).

Patients who undergo surgery for oesophageal cancer have a much greater chance of long term survival if the operation is carried out by a surgeon who has performed this particular operation many times before. This according to a new, large-scale study conducted by researchers at Karolinska Institutet, which is published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. In their article, the researchers conclude that oesophageal cancer surgery should be concentrated - or centralised - to fewer surgeons.

But experts admitted that although the number of centres offering the specialist treatment had risen from 35 in 2006/07 to 54 this year, a further increase was not likely. Cardiologists have described the proposal as a challenge, as specialist angioplasty units will have to be staffed by an expert team 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For the treatment to be effective it should be given within two hours of the heart attack, meaning some hospital trusts may need to double their number of cardiology consultants.. The proposals are the latest stage in the centralisation of NHS care. The Government has long pushed for the creation of superhospitals - vast regional centres with specialist clinics catering to population areas of up to two million. Maternity services also face being moved from local hospitals to larger regional units and GPs could move from local surgeries to multi-purpose health centres, or polyclinics.. But Katherine Murphy, spokeswoman for The Patients Association, said the ...
Decentralization is a central plank of current government health policy. However, it is possible to discern both centralist and decentralist movements in the UK. This paper examines existing frameworks of decentralization in relation to identifying whether policy is decentralist or not and identifies a number of problems that limit their value. Key problems relate to the way decentralization is conceptualized and defined. Existing frameworks are also highly contextualized and are therefore of limited value when applied in different contexts. The paper then presents a new framework which, it is argued, provides a more useful way of examining centralization and decentralization by providing a way of categorizing policies and actions and avoids the problems of being contextually constrained. The paper ends with a discussion of how the framework can be applied in a health context and shows how this framework helps avoid the problems found in previous discussions of decentralization. ...
The survey cemented the fact that the cardiothoracic surgery workforce is getting older. The percentage of surgeons aged 60 years or greater was 29.1%, compared with 25.7% in 2005. As the demographic continues to age and surgeons retire, the remaining workforce may need to perform more surgeries, and patients may need to wait a little longer to have their elective operations performed.. The primary issue here is surgeon availability. We currently are experiencing a shortage of CT surgeons to fill available jobs, Dr. Ikonomidis said. This could result in closure of smaller, rural programs and increased centralization of services to large, urban programs.. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the aging workforce and current shortage of surgeons, a majority of respondents (52.3%) said that their institution was planning to hire a new surgeon in the next 2 years. This is a shift from previous surveys, in which the majority did not plan to hire. Nearly 40% of these respondents indicated that they would ...

Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. Most would agree that the centralization of expensive and sophisticated equipment is an essential part of the organizational structure of biomedical research institutes today. This has come about through the need to remain on top of technologies that take a lot of time to master (e.g. protein expression and purification, advanced imaging, EM, automation, transgenics…), the necessity to enable more complex multidisciplinary work flows across different technologies, the prohibitively expensive technologies with capacity exceeding the needs of single labs or departments (e.g. NGS), and of course the unwelcome need to generally improve cost efficiency in an ever more constrained funding environment…. ...
Startups can lower the barrier to market entry by migrating their computing infrastructure to the cloud, although commercial clouds typically require massive data centers that consume huge amounts of electricity and can end up being a single point of failure due to their centralization. These and other problems raise the credibility of the peer-to-peer (P2P) cloud concept, in which millions of individual, Internet-connected computers distributed across the world form the cloud, write University of Bologna computer scientists Ozalp Babaoglu and Moreno Marzolla. They note initial investment in P2P clouds could be virtually nothing because they could be constructed from ordinary computing, storage, and communication gear, and they could eliminate control by a single entity as well as mitigate concerns about heat dissipation and local disasters. P2P clouds must monitor all functioning and online devices in the system and dynamically separate them among customers, using a decentralized architecture. ...
And we were kept busy from morning to night. Steve Jones, Director of the Research and Extension Center, showed maps illustrating the centralization of wheat growing in the Midwest over the past 100 years for reasons that had to do with economies of scale and big business, not the quality of the soil. He said that the renewed focus on local has as much to do with flavor and terroir as with helping farmers make a living wage in our communities. He showcased Ebeys Prairie on nearby Whidbey Island, a farm which produced 119 bushels an acre on its land 100 years ago (a world record) to be compared with the current Midwestern yield of 45 bushels an acre. He explained that the main challenge today for the local farmer was the lack of infrastructure: combines, mills, silos (he showed us a picture of the local silo, now a café) and money for research: for instance the Perennial Grain Project is no longer funded at the federal level ...

All living organisms are able to detect changes within themselves and in their environments. Changes in the external environment include those of light, temperature, sound, motion and odor. Changes in the internal environment include those in the position of the head and limbs as well as in the internal organs. Once detected, these internal and external changes must be analyzed and acted upon in order to preserve the integrity, well-being, and status quo of the organism.. The nervous system is based upon the almost instantaneous transmission of impulses from one region of the body to another along specialized nerve cells. In the centralized system of the human body, a portion of the nervous system has a dominant role in coordinating information and directing responses. This centralization consists of the brain and spinal cord. Impulses are carried to and from the brain and spinal cord by nerve fibers that make up the peripheral nervous system.. ...
Downloadable! Throughout the world, strong dispersions of both regional and national unemployment rates can be observed. The economic theory has developed various explanations on how this differences occur. Corresponding models mainly aim at institutional and political framework, insider effects, efficiency wages, collective bargaining and cyclical effects. However, the size of economies has received little attention in this discussion. In this paper, we will show that there is indeed a strong link between size and unemployment. Using data from 37 countries, 15 continents and trade areas as well as 496 federal states, we will demonstrate that larger economic regions tend to have higher unemployment rates. Subsequently, we show that this correlation is strongly determined by the degree of centralization of countries. Based on these findings, we develop a model that explains regional and national unemployment using size and centralization. We will point out that centralization parabolas can be derived for
The Australian Government, under the auspice of Cancer Australia (CA), engaged the Centre for Health Service Development (CHSD) to conduct an independent evaluation of the National Centre for Gynaecological Cancers (NCGC). This final evaluation report synthesises our key findings and includes recommendations to position the work of the NCGC for the future. The evaluation has assessed the impact and outcomes of the NCGC at the level of consumers, service providers and the wider cancer control system. In addition we have reviewed the appropriateness, efficiency and effectiveness of the Centre in the cont ext of government service delivery.
Holistic needs assessment (HNA) and care planning is proposed to address unmet needs of people treated for cancer. We tested whether HNA and care planning by an allied health professional improved cancer-specific quality of life for women following curative treatment for stage I-III gynaecological cancer. Methods Consecutive women were invited to participate in a randomised controlled study (HNA and care planning vs. usual care) at a UK cancer centre. Data were collected by questionnaire at baseline, three and six months. The outcomes were six month change in EORTC-QLQ-C30 global score (primary), and in EORTC sub-scales, generic quality of life, self-efficacy (secondary). The study was blinded for data management and analysis. Differences in outcomes were compared between groups. Health service utilisation and Quality Adjusted Life Years (from SF-6) were gathered for a cost-effectiveness analysis. Thematic analysis was used to interpret data from an exit interview. Results 150 women consented ...
Where an HNA was used to develop a care plan with women at the end of treatment for gynaecological cancer, there was no evidence in the primary endpoint (EORTC global QoL status scores) to favour the intervention. However, a trend to improvement over 6 months in the EORTC subscales of emotional, role, social functioning and symptom scales for fatigue, insomnia and breathlessness was seen only in the intervention group. This suggestion of improvement in function and symptoms was corroborated by the nested interviews. The interviews also gave insights about the significant impact of cancer and treatment for some women. The experience of receiving the intervention and specifically how it had the treatment impact for them indicates that the intervention was well received by the majority of the women interviewed. The intervention was inexpensive, and a reduced use of health and social care resources was shown in the intervention group. The health economic analysis was based on a reduced sample size; ...

While much of the data regarding hospital volume and outcome for TC patients is dated, the argument for centralization of care is poignant. As outcomes for a variety of urologic malignancies including prostate, bladder and kidney cancer are established to be improved in high-volume centers, it is rational that TC care could also be better served by centralized care - TC is a rare disease that often requires multi-disciplinary care and a thorough understanding of management options and outcomes (especially for men with advanced disease). A risk-adapted centralization, where following a diagnosis of TC patients are referred to an increasingly experienced center for the stage of their disease, may help improve outcomes for patients. For instance, a man with early stage disease who is a candidate for active surveillance can be followed by his local urologic oncologist, and the man with high-volume metastatic disease should be referred to a large, tertiary care center with extensive experience ...

CD44 refers to a multifunctional family of type I transmembrane proteins. The CD44 gene contains at least 21 exons, 11 of which can be variably spliced and produce a variety of heavily glycosylated cell surface proteins, known as CD44 variant isoforms. These proteins have been implicated in many biological processes, such as cell adhesion, cell substrate, cell to cell interactions, including lymphocyte homing haemopoiesis, cell migration and metastasis. These abilities are of great importance in chronic inflammation and in cancer. Published data have shown that CD44 has the ability to recruit leucocytes to vascular endothelium at sites of inflammation, which is one of the first steps in the inflammatory response. In cancer, deregulation of the adhesion mechanisms increases the ability of tumor cells to metastasis. This behavior seems to be explained by the existing relationship between hyaluronan, a basic component of the extracellular matrix and CD44, which is its major cell surface receptor. ...

Centralization of cardiac services can increase hospital surgery volumes and decrease access for patients. This study estimates the effects of changes in the regulation of cardiac services on treatments, mortality, and utility. Demand for surgery services by heart attack victims who form expectations of the need for and productivity of surgery in their choice of hospital and treatment is estimated. The results indicate that mortality and ex ante utility are insensitive to moderate changes in policy: Changes in surgery volume and travel costs offset one another.
Citrix VAD solution has helped Kusum Healthcare move to an inherently secure architecture by centralizing all its resources in one datacentre. The centralization has strengthened the security by making it simpler to control data and access as the data no longer resides on the endpoint devices.. All the applications now reside on the Citrix server hosted centrally, which employees access over the browser from a thin client. The business risk is considerably reduced with IT defining and enforcing policy based access as per user profiles as well as having visibility and control over the centrally managed apps and desktops.. According to Susanta Goswami, DGM-IT & Head Infrastructure, Kusum Healthcare Pvt.

Simply: Installing Terror. The Technical breakthroughs of the time enabled the ruling of larger territories, accompanied by centralization of power, not seen in Europe since the decline of the Roman Empire. This then also called for a restructuring of governance. Parliamentary systems are reformed to adapt to this reality and, are re-functioned to act as management organs of the Crown. At the time none of these Parliaments are embryonic democratic institutions, in the modern sense of the word, but they function as a line of communication between the Monarch and the Commoners. Their main function is however to recognize the laws of the Monarch, and to effectuate the levying of taxes. The taxes are in both cases intended to serve the foreign policy of the King. - The protection of the realm; the execution of war-craft.

The constant change faced by foreign companies in Indonesia, and musings on whether changes in national government will bring about decentralization or centralization of power in Jakarta.
Around 1870, millstones used to mill grain into flour were replaced with metal rollers. Commercial flour mills across Europe and America converted to the new roller mill flour method over a short span of about ten years. A series of rollers gradually crush the grain into flour much faster than millstone grinding.. The roller mill method became universal in large-scale commercial flour production. This made it easy to efficiently create desired flour particle shapes and sizes, and to separate and isolate specific components of the grain. Simultaneously, longer distribution channels and the centralization of milling required longer shelf life for flour. Roller mill white flour was the answer to this, and it provided an economic boon to the mills in selling the bran and germ as animal feed and for oil production. These developments made it impossible for a traditional flour miller to compete with the consolidated, huge capacity, monopolistic roller mill flour industry.. The stone mill method of ...

Now it is true that I believe this country is following a dangerous trend when it permits too great a degree of centralization of governmental functions. I oppose this -- in some instances the fight is a rather desperate one. But to attain any success it is quite clear that the Federal government cannot avoid or escape responsibilities which the mass of the people firmly believe should be undertaken by it. The political processes of our country are such that if a rule of reason is not applied in this effort, we will lose everything -- even to a possible and drastic change in the Constitution. This is what I mean by my constant insistence upon moderation in government. Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his ...
