The relationship of Medicaid payment rates, bed constraint policies, and risk-adjusted pressure ulcers. (1/17)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of Medicaid reimbursement rates on nursing home quality in the presence of certificate-of-need (CON) and construction moratorium laws. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: A single cross-section of Medicaid certified nursing homes in 1999 (N = 13,736). STUDY DESIGN: A multivariate regression model was used to examine the effect of Medicaid payment rates and other explanatory variables on risk-adjusted pressure ulcer incidence. The model is alternatively considered for all U.S. nursing home markets, those most restrictive markets, and those high-Medicaid homes to isolate potentially resource-poor environments. DATA EXTRACTION METHODS: A merged data file was constructed with resident-level information from the Minimum Data Set, facility-level information from the On-Line, Survey, Certification, and Reporting (OSCAR) system and market- and state-level information from various published sources. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In the analysis of all U.S. markets, there was a positive relationship between the Medicaid payment rate and nursing home quality. The results from this analysis imply that a 10 percent increase in Medicaid payment was associated with a 1.5 percent decrease in the incidence of risk-adjusted pressure ulcers. However, there was a limited association between Medicaid payment rates and quality in the most restrictive markets. Finally, there was a strong relationship between Medicaid payment and quality in high-Medicaid homes providing strong evidence that the level of Medicaid payment is especially important within resource poor facilities. CONCLUSIONS: These findings provide support for the idea that increased Medicaid reimbursement may be an effective means toward improving nursing home quality, although CON and moratorium laws may mitigate this relationship.  (+info)

Monopoly is not the answer. (2/17)

Certificate-of-need (CON) regulation was originally intended to correct market failures that no longer afflict health care markets. It is ironic that Sujit Choudhry and colleagues now invoke it to deal with situations where, in their view, competition is working altogether too well. Protectionist regulation, long discredited in other areas, is particularly misguided in health care, where health insurance greatly increases the profitability of monopoly and imposes the resulting higher costs on unwilling premium payers. To use cross-subsidies to finance even worthy (let alone unworthy) health care projects is to put public burdens unfairly (regressively) on the backs of working Americans.  (+info)

Medicare program; conditions for payment of power mobility devices, including power wheelchairs and power-operated vehicles. Interim final rule with comment period. (3/17)

This interim final rule conforms our regulations to section 302(a)(2)(E)(iv) of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108-173). This rule defines the term power mobility devices (PMDs) as power wheelchairs and power operated vehicles (POVs or scooters). It sets forth revised conditions for Medicare payment of PMDs and defines who may prescribe PMDs. This rule also requires a face-to-face examination of the beneficiary by the physician or treating practitioner and a PMD prescription and pertinent parts of the medical record that the durable medical equipment supplier maintains in records and makes available to CMS or its agents upon request. Finally, this rule discusses CMS' policy on documentation that may be requested by CMS or its agents to support a Medicare claim for payment, as well as the elimination for the Certificate of Medical Necessity for PMDs.  (+info)

Contemporary impact of state certificate-of-need regulations for cardiac surgery: an analysis using the Society of Thoracic Surgeons' National Cardiac Surgery Database. (4/17)

BACKGROUND: Prior research using administrative data associated certificate-of-need (CON) regulation for open heart surgery with higher hospital coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) volume and lower CABG operative mortality rates in elderly patients. It is unclear whether these findings apply in a general population and after controlling for detailed clinical characteristics and region. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using the Society of Thoracic Surgeons' (STS) National Cardiac Surgery Database, we examined isolated CABG surgery volume, operative mortality, and the composite end point of operative mortality or major morbidity for the years 2000 to 2003. The presence of CON regulations for open heart surgery was ascertained from the National Directory of the American Health Policy Association and by contacting CON administrators. Results were analyzed nationally, by state, and by region (West, Northeast, Midwest, South) and were adjusted for clinical factors and both population density and region with mixed-effects hierarchical logistic regression models. During 2000 to 2003, there were 314,710 isolated CABG surgeries performed at 294 STS hospitals in CON states (n=27, including Washington, DC) and 280 512 procedures at 343 STS hospitals in non-CON states (n=24). Patient clinical characteristics were similar among CON and non-CON hospitals. States with CON regulations tended to have higher population densities and had significantly higher median hospital annual CABG volumes in each of the years 2000 to 2003 (P<0.005). This difference remained significant after adjustment for region and population density. Operative mortality was 2.52% for CON versus 2.62% for non-CON states (P=0.32). There was a significant association between CON law and operative mortality in the South. After adjustment for patient risk factors and region, there was a marginally significant reduction of mortality risk in states with CON regulation (adjusted OR 0.92, 95% CI 0.86 to 1.00). However, this difference was not statistically significant when a revised model accounted for random state effects. Similar volume and outcomes results were seen when the analysis was repeated with data from the national Medicare database. CONCLUSIONS: CON states have significantly higher hospital CABG surgery volumes but similar mortality compared with non-CON states. CON regulation alone is not a sufficient mechanism to ensure quality of care for CABG surgery.  (+info)

Certificate of need regulation and cardiac catheterization appropriateness after acute myocardial infarction. (5/17)

BACKGROUND: Certificate of need (CON) regulation was introduced to control healthcare costs and improve quality of care in part by limiting the number of facilities providing complex medical care. Our objective was to examine whether rates of appropriate cardiac catheterization after admission for acute myocardial infarction varied between states with and without CON regulation of cardiac catheterization. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a retrospective analysis of chart-abstracted data for 137,279 Medicare patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction between 1994 and 1996 at 4179 US acute-care hospitals. Using 3-level hierarchical generalized linear modeling adjusted for patient sociodemographic and clinical characteristics and physician and hospital characteristics, we compared catheterization rates within 60 days of admission for states (and the District of Columbia) with (n=32) and without (n=19) CON regulation in the full cohort and stratified by catheterization appropriateness. Appropriateness was categorized as strongly, equivocally, or weakly indicated. We found CON regulation was associated with a borderline-significant lower rate of catheterization overall (45.8% versus 46.5%; adjusted risk ratio [RR] 0.91, 95% confidence interval 0.82 to 1.00, P=0.06). After stratification by appropriateness, CON regulation was not associated with a significantly lower rate of catheterization among 63,823 patients with strong indications (49.9% versus 50.3%; adjusted RR 0.94, 95% confidence interval 0.86 to 1.02, P=0.17). However, CON regulation was associated with significantly lower rates of catheterization among 65,077 patients with equivocal indication (45.0% versus 46.0%; adjusted RR 0.88, 95% confidence interval 0.78 to 1.00, P=0.05) and among 8379 patients with weak indications (19.8% versus 21.8%; adjusted RR 0.84, 95% confidence interval 0.71 to 0.98, P=0.04). Associations were weakened substantially after adjustment for hospital coronary artery bypass graft surgery or cardiac catheterization capability. CONCLUSIONS: CON regulation was associated with modestly lower rates of equivocally and weakly indicated cardiac catheterization after admission for acute myocardial infarction, but no significant differences existed in rates of strongly indicated catheterization.  (+info)

Home oxygen therapy under Medicare. A primer. (6/17)

Medicare recently implemented a new, strict, and complex home oxygen policy and a new oxygen prescription form. Unfortunately, the lack of instructions for the form has led to confusion, frustration, and suboptimal treatment. Long-term oxygen therapy prolongs survival, ameliorates hypoxic organ dysfunction, and improves exercise endurance. Indications for therapy include hypoxemia caused by cardiopulmonary diseases, hypoxemia that occurs with sleep or exercise, and hypoxemic organ dysfunction. Patients should be stable and have an arterial blood oxygen tension (PaO2) of 55 mm of mercury (7.3 kPa) or less or arterial blood oxygen saturation (SaO2) of 88% or less. There should be evidence of hypoxic organ dysfunction when the (PaO2) is 56 to 59 mm of mercury (7.4 to 7.8 kPa) or the SaO2 is 89%. A medical review by the insurance carrier is required if oxygen is to be prescribed when hypoxemia is less severe--if the PaO2 is 60 mm of mercury (8.0 kPa) or more or if the SaO2 is 90% or more. The instructions for oxygen flow, duration, and equipment must be explicit to ensure adequate therapy. An oxygen concentrator with a small oxygen cylinder portable system fulfills most needs. Oxygen cylinders may be used at low flows for patients who require therapy only during sleep or where electrical power is unreliable. A liquid oxygen system may be prescribed for active patients. Portable equipment should be provided in addition to stationary equipment when patients have resting hypoxemia. Portable equipment alone is sufficient when there is exercise-related hypoxemia with normal oxygenation at rest. Newly developed oxygen-conserving devices may offer longer ambulatory times and possibly lower operating costs. When home oxygen therapy is started in the hospital, the Certificate of Medical Necessity should be completed and patients should be trained to use the equipment before discharge.  (+info)

Cardiac Certificate of Need regulations and the availability and use of revascularization services. (7/17)

BACKGROUND: Many states enforce Certificate of Need (CON) regulations for cardiac procedures, but little is known about how CON affects utilization. We assessed the association between cardiac CON regulations, availability of revascularization facilities, and revascularization rates. METHODS: We determined when state cardiac CON regulations were active and obtained data for Medicare beneficiaries > or = 65 years old who received coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) between 1989 and 2002. We compared the number of hospitals performing revascularization and patient utilization in states with and without CON regulations, and in states which discontinued CON regulations during 1989 to 2002. RESULTS: Each year, the per capita number of hospitals performing CABG and PCI was higher in states without CON (3.7 per 100,000 elderly for CABG, 4.5 for PCI in 2002), compared with CON states (2.5 for CABG, 3.0 for PCI in 2002). Multivariate regressions that adjusted for market and population characteristics found no difference in CABG utilization rates between states with and without CON (P = .7). However, CON was associated with 19.2% fewer PCIs per 1000 elderly (P = .01), equivalent to 322,526 fewer PCIs for 1989 to 2002. Among most states that discontinued CON, the number of hospitals performing PCI rose in the mid 1990s, but there were no consistent trends in the number of hospitals performing CABG or in PCIs or CABGs per capita. CONCLUSIONS: Certificate of Need restricts the number of cardiac facilities, but its effect on utilization rates may vary by procedure.  (+info)

Background. Faced with rising health care costs, inadequate health resource distribution, and inequitable access to care in many regions, Congress enacted the National Health Planning and Resources Development Act in 1974. At the time, Congress had documented that previous infusions of federal funds to the existing health care system had contributed to inflating costs while failing to provide an adequate supply or distribution of resources. The law amended the Public Health Service Act (PHSA) and created national, state, and area-wide health planning councils.. It required each governor to designate a State Health Planning and Development Agency to design a state health plan and administer certificate-of-need programs. The law created annual grants to the state agencies to cover up to 75 percent of their annual costs. In order for a state to receive this additional funding as well as any funding under the PHSA, it needed to comply with the new law and establish a CON program by 1979. At that ...
Our analysis demonstrates that state CON regulations have been generally effective in concentrating bypass surgery procedural volumes, increasing mean and median annual procedure volumes, and decreasing the likelihood that there are hospitals with very low volumes of cardiac surgery. This association, however, does appear to vary by region, with greater apparent impact in the South relative to other areas of the country. Despite this relationship, however, CON alone appears to have little impact on procedural quality as assessed by differential rates of mortality and major morbidities. Hospitals in states with CON had generally similar operative mortality and morbidity as those without CON. The present data suggest that state CON laws are not a sufficient mechanism to ensure quality of care for CABG surgery. CON regulations can have an impact on the allocation and location of resources but cannot ensure the skills, judgment, and evidence-based practice applied in the delivery of care.. These ...
From 1979, Mississippi restricted the supply of health care with certificate-of-need (CON) programs. These programs prohibited health care providers from entering new markets or making changes to their existing capacity without first gaining the approval of state regulators. Research shows that reforming or repealing these laws would improve both the quality and acessiblity of
a separation of infrastructure and service providers. the competition that spawned the internet boom in the mid- to late-90s was due to the fact that services like AOL, Earthlink, Prodigy, and others had to keep offering more service for less money. and you could pick ANY of them or switch anytime you wanted (with the minor inconvenience of switching your email addresses) because they had no ties to the phone companies. Cable modem and DSL providers started taking over when they started offering faster service (for more than marginally higher prices) and that not only drove out the independent ISPs, but it intrinsically tied service to infrastructure. And the problem with infrastructure is that every single region in the US (at least that Im aware of) has local monopolies on cable and phone service. None of the areas Ive lived in for the past twenty years have given you a choice of cable provider. if you get cable, you only get Time Warner (or comcast or cox or cablevision or...), and if you ...

We appreciate the comments of Dr Cheng, who notes that the finding of a similar outcome in women and men undergoing CABG within the Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation (BARI)R1 is not corroborated in a large registry of patients in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Cardiac Surgery Database.R2 As stated in the Discussion, interpretation of our results in BARI should take into account that the data are from a randomized clinical trial with specific inclusion and exclusion criteria, and hence, the BARI population is not representative of all patients undergoing coronary revascularization. However, when we examined BARI screening data, we found that women were not disproportionately excluded from the trial population. In addition, data from an ancillary BARI study that conducted a survey of all hospitals in the United States performing CABG and coronary angioplasty during the same time period indicated that the proportion of women undergoing revascularization procedures at ...
Certificate of need became optional for states in the mid-1980s. During the study, 27 states, including the District of Columbia, had CON regulations for open-heart surgery.. The authors also rated the stringency of the state CON programs, based on the scope of services covered by the CON regulations and the review process hospitals experience when requesting authorization to establish a new program. Using this rating, three states had high CON stringency, eight states had moderate CON stringency and 16 states, including Iowa, had low CON stringency.. The findings indicate that the more stringent the CON program, the lower the use of bypass surgery and angioplasty for these patients, yet death rates remained the same as in states with less stringent CON or states without CON, explained the studys lead author Ioana Popescu, M.D., a Quality Scholar with the VA Iowa City Health Care System and UI fellow in internal medicine.. Rosenthal and Popescu noted that there still is pressure on states to ...

Nothing wrong with celebrating our patriotism except when its done with a company thats a pyramid scheme.

Afterwards Diamond speakers will talk about building the business. Well thatll be a first. They never talked about that at the FEDs I went to! They all jabbered about being poor and then they saw the Amway business plan and set their goals on a mission to destroy people and rip them off and now they live in mansions and walk the beaches of the world while residual income rolls in for the rest of their lives.

Arvind Venkat, MD, FACEP, immediate past president of the Pennsylvania College of Emergency Physicians, addressed Rep. Gaydos concern for the safety of frontline workers. We need evidence-based standards from the Pennsylvania Department of Health on what is the appropriate use of personal protective equipment by health care personnel that are driven by science, not supply chain failures and perceived expedience. We also need regulations or legislation on the amounts of personal protective equipment that health care facilities are required to maintain with a mandated real-time system for reporting to the department when there are challenges in maintaining local supplies. This would allow the quick transfer of personal protective equipment from state-managed reserves ...
Motivation. Atmospheric pollution represents a risk factor for respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and for cancer. The two major contributions come from traffic emissions and biomass burning. On-road and off-road diesel engines account for ~70% of BC emissions in Europe, North America, and Latin America whereas the burning of residential solid fuels, especially coal and biomass, contribute ~60 - 80% of the Asian and African BC emissions.. Wood combustion in residential areas is commonly used for heating (and cooking) during cold winter seasons. Abatement measures include better stowes and alternative heating methods. Traffic pollution can be reduced by encouragement of public transportation usage, public tranport modernization, ring road utilization, traffic flow improvement, speed limit reduction and implementation of low emission zones. Since all restrictions are an unpopular and costly it is important to know which sources need regulation and how efficient this regulation is. ...

Senator Robert Taft was one of the founders of the conservative movement. He authored perhaps the most significant legislation of the 20th century, the Taft-Hartley Act to preserve free enterprise against suffocating unionism, and obtained its passage over President Harry Trumans veto. Nearly two decades later, Barry Goldwater built on free enterprise to obtain an unlikely nomination as the the Republican candidate for president in 1964. A United States Senator from Arizona, Goldwaters insistence upon conservative principles helped redefine the Republican Party, transforming it into the party of conservatism and conservatives in the early 1960s. In Goldwaters acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in 1964, he famously declared, I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.[4] ...

12:00AM August 22, 2018. Like a low-budget horror film featuring C-grade actors, Australian politics has entered the realm of the absurd. Its not as if we havent seen this script before either. The Coalition is taking us through a repeat of Labors period of dysfunctional government.. Unfortunately the malaise within the Liberal Party is much more serious than that of its opposition. Without the structure to manage internal party disputes, Liberals face a continuing battle to re-establish what they actually stand for.. The Liberal Party was once the party of free enterprise, limited government, civil society, lower taxes and stronger families. Now it has become a shelter for those who dont fit into Labor but still want to pursue a political career.. John Howard coined the phrase a broad church, but every church has a congregation of common belief. Regrettably, the Liberals have admitted too many whose only commitment is to attaining positions of personal power and influence.. Adopting Labor ...

Around 4:00 PM Mrs. Jones daughter tells me that they are ready to tell her about the situation if the doctors do not come right away. I let the doctors know and one of the fellows, not the original surgeon, comes to talk. He is obviously uncomfortable and unsure what to say. He explains that they are not really sure what has happened, but that some blood flow to her spine was disturbed. They are not sure what her final status will be. He tells her that the operation was very complicated and that she is lucky to be alive. He ends with Just keep trying to move. My anger rises as I listen. Why can he not tell her the truth so that she can understand it? As the fellow heads out of the room a technician from bed supply comes in. Is this the New Para? (as in paraplegic). This is now more than I can take. Will Mrs. Jones learn that she is paralyzed from bed supply? I ask the daughter for permission to clarify and she gives it readily.

The therapeutic effectiveness of continuous infusion of 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin, and etoposide (FEP) for treatment of metastatic gastric cancer was examined. Studies were made on 17 patients with gastric cancer with distant metastases. 5-fluorouracil (300 mg/m(2)/day) and cisplatin (80 mg/m(2)/day) were administered by continuous intravenous infusion for 120 and 24 hours, respectively; etoposide (60 mg/m(2)/day) was injected intravenously over a 2 hour period on days 2, 3 and 4. These chemotherapy treatments were repeated every 28 days. Partial, but not complete, remission was seen in four patients (24%). The treatment increased the survival times of patients with differentiated or Borrmann 2 or 3 type cancer, but not significantly. In many cases the treatment caused myelosuppression, but side effects were usually mild or moderate. It is concluded that infusion of 5-fluorouracil, etoposide and cisplatin is effective and well tolerated ...

The study documents a direct relationship between individuals health and patterns of healthcare expenditure by isolating single-person households and creating a new reference group in which household healthcare expenditure is based on one persons expenditure patterns in accordance with his or her own state of health. The study matched two surveys using Propensity Score Matching based on single-person household, age, and gender. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) explores paths of relation between the populations income and socioeconomic level and its health self-assessment and expenditure. Single-person households health expenditure increases with age and the differences in most expenditure categories are significant. The current study looks into the direct and indirect effects of income, gender, and SES on health insurance and other out-of-pocket health expenses among single-person households. A direct link exists between income, gender, and socioeconomic status (SES) and several aspects of health

Man, that would be so tough. Im actually a staunch believer in not visiting people at the hospital unless they are specifically the sort of people who like that kind of thing. A lot of my relatives think being visited at the hospital is the worst. My Mom was on total at-home bedrest for 9 weeks before my baby sister was born. It wasnt crazy crazy hard as far as taking care of the family went, because so many of us kids were already older. I was 15 and coordinated all cooking and meals and went grocery shopping with dad, that sort of thing. Boredom was a huge factor for my mom--her twin sister sent her a whole bunch of embroidery supplies since you cant get them here and Mom embroidered this huge baby blanket during the wait. Also, homeschooling went on as usual so we have pictures of Mom and all the 5 younger kids sprawled all over her bed, doing their schoolwork. Were so glad that baby Sarah came safely at the end of it all, but it was a scary time for the family. ...
Shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth said: Last weeks cold snap demonstrated the crisis facing our NHS this winter and Government inaction will only make the challenge that much harder.

Patients expect ministers to urgently get a grip.. Janet Davies, head of the Royal College of Nursing, said: The Government shouldnt shrug todays figures off as yet more statistics. Behind every one is a person waiting too long, often in pain and discomfort and at their lowest ebb..

How did we adopt a free market culture based on cooperation and mutually beneficial exchange? We constructed work-arounds or compromises between all of the various tribes (consumers, suppliers, producers, etc.) held together by good organizational skills ...

Former Republican presidential nominee John McCain on Sunday walked back on his 2008 attacks on current GOP hopeful Mitt Romney for his record of killing jobs as the head of Bain Capital. During a 2008 campaign stop in Florida, McCain had blasted Romney for taking over companies and laying off thousands of workers.. I think he managed companies and he bought and he sold and sometimes people lost their jobs, the Arizona senator explained at a January 2008 debate.. On Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace asked McCain, who is now campaigning for Romney, if he was engaging in the same kind of class warfare that he has accused President Barack Obama of for attacking Romneys Bain record.. This is the free enterprise system, McCain insisted. The only place in the world that I can recall where companies never failed was the old Soviet Union. This is what investors do in the free enterprise and capitalism system.. ...

LIZ Truss, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, was waxing lyrical in City AM on Thursday about the wonders of the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), the junior division of the London Stock Exchange.. She enthused: Britain is now third in the global league table for start-ups, and rapidly climbing - boasting 22 billion-dollar tech companies (so-called unicorns)…AIM has outlasted its rivals, such as the German Neuer Market which had to close following the tech bubble in the 2000s.. It is home to over three times the number of companies compared to Nasdaqs European growth exchange.. All true enough. Then came this:. While others may attempt to copy us, they are a long way from matching the UKs entrepreneurial spirit adding that AIM is a beacon of British enterprise.. In fact, if AIM is a beacon of anything it is a veritable lighthouse of lavish tax reliefs. So generous are the fiscal incentives on offer to the lions of free enterprise quoted on AIM that it is practically an on-shore tax ...

This would be a glorious result. The credit crisis, as Bush describes it, is nothing more than the kind of crisis a college kid faces when his parents cut back on the deposits to his checking account. It means less high living, a few more nights moping in the dorm rather than going out with his drinking friends. It does not mean the end of the world. The market is working now to make things right, to eliminate bad debt and get us back on a sound economic footing. The government can help by legalizing alternative monies, cutting regulations, cutting spending and taxing and wars (as Ron Paul says), but otherwise by doing absolutely nothing. Lehman failed on its own and yet life goes on. The same should happen to Goldman, Morgan, Bear, GM, and all the rest. Free enterprise is a profit and loss system. This is a time of losses, stemming from an overinflated credit sector, one that the Austrian economists have warned about for many years. Listen to the Austrians now and permit the failures to ...
The fact that the Rothschild cartel maintains central banks in every country on earth but two, means that it controls or minimally partners with all other nations including both Russian and Chinese oligarchs, dispelling the entire myth of the West versus East dichotomy. Despite the brainwash since World War II that the Russians are eternal enemies of the United States and Europe,[xiii] the ultimate truth is the New World Order encompasses Illuminati elite busily pushing Oz-like levers of control from behind both the Western and Eastern Curtain. These artificial political divisions have always been conveniently manufactured false props promoting two opposing ideologies along political-military lines (i.e., Western free enterprise democracies vs. Eastern Communist totalitarian dictatorships). The reality is these two opposite systems never existed beyond the abstract and are largely homogenized into one and the same, run by the same global elite. The elitist power structure owning and ...

But as every economist knows, the introduction of a monopoly breaks the market model. How do you set a price for a product where there is no competition at all?. Proprietary drugs enjoy a state-sanctioned monopoly for a defined period as a reward to encourage investment in innovation. Fortunately, however, this monopoly is usually very narrow - the precise composition of the drug may enjoy a monopoly but there is often nothing to stop others developing products with similar composition, or with the same mechanism of action, or even a completely different approach that achieves the same outcomes in practice..
