Viewpoint: public versus private health care delivery: beyond the slogans. (1/3452)

In most settings, a 'public' health service refers to a service which belongs to the state. The term 'private' is used when health care is delivered by individuals and/or institutions not administered by the state. In this paper it is argued that such a distinction, which is based on the institutional or administrative identity of the health care provider, is not adequate because it takes for granted that the nature of this identity automatically determines the nature of the service delivered to the population. A different frame of classification between public and private health services is proposed: one which is based on the purpose the health service pursues and on the outputs it yields. A set of five operational criteria to distinguish between health services guided by a public or private purpose is presented. This alternative classification is discussed in relation to a variety of existing situations in sub-Saharan Africa (Mali, Uganda, Zimbabwe). It is hoped that it can be used as a tool in the hands of the health planner in order to bring more rationality in the current altercation between the public and the private health care sector.  (+info)

The myths of emergency medical care access in the managed care era. (2/3452)

In this paper, we examine the perception that emergency care is unusually expensive. We discuss the myths that have fueled the ineffective and sometimes deleterious efforts to limit access to emergency care. We demonstrate the reasons why these efforts are seriously flawed and propose alternate strategies that aim to improve outcomes, including cooperative ventures between hospitals and managed care organizations. We challenge managed care organizations and healthcare providers to collaborate and lead the drive to improve the cost and clinical effectiveness of emergency care.  (+info)

Outcomes research: collaboration among academic researchers, managed care organizations, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. (3/3452)

Medical and pharmaceutical outcomes research has been of increasing interest in the past 10 to 15 years among healthcare providers, payers, and regulatory agencies. Outcomes research has become a multidisciplinary field involving clinicians, health services researchers, epidemiologists, psychometricians, statisticians, psychologists, sociologists, economists, and ethicists. Collaboration among researchers in different organizations that offer different types of services and various research expertise is the essential element for any successful outcomes project. In this article we discuss collaboration on outcomes research among academic researchers (mainly those who work in colleges of pharmacy), managed care organizations, and research-based pharmaceutical manufacturers, with a focus on the opportunities and challenges facing each party. The pharmaceutical industry needs information to make product and promotion decisions; the managed care industry has data to offer but needs analysis of these data; and pharmacy schools, among other academic institutions, have skilled researchers and data-processing capacity but require projects for revenue, research training, experience, and publications. Challenges do exist with such endeavors, but collaboration could be beneficial in satisfying the needs of the individual parties.  (+info)

The effects of group size and group economic factors on collaboration: a study of the financial performance of rural hospitals in consortia. (4/3452)

STUDY QUESTIONS: To determine factors that distinguish effective rural hospital consortia from ineffective ones in terms of their ability to improve members' financial performance. Two questions in particular were addressed: (1) Do large consortia have a greater collective impact on their members? (2) Does a consortium's economic environment determine the degree of collective impact on members? DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SETTING: Based on the hospital survey conducted during February 1992 by the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital-Based Rural Health Care project of rural hospital consortia. The survey data were augmented with data from Medicare Cost Reports (1985-1991), AHA Annual Surveys (1985-1991), and other secondary data. STUDY DESIGN: Dependent variables were total operating profit, cost per adjusted admission, and revenue per adjusted admission. Control variables included degree of group formalization, degree of inequality of resources among members (group asymmetry), affiliation with other consortium group(s), individual economic environment, common hospital characteristics (bed size, ownership type, system affiliation, case mix, etc.), year (1985-1991), and census region dummies. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: All dependent variables have a curvilinear association with group size. The optimum group size is somewhere in the neighborhood of 45. This reveals the benefits of collective action (i.e., scale economies and/or synergy effects) and the issue of complexity as group size increases. Across analyses, no strong evidence exists of group economic environment impacts, and the environmental influences come mainly from the local economy rather than from the group economy. CONCLUSION: There may be some success stories of collaboration among hospitals in consortia, and consortium effects vary across different collaborations. RELEVANCE/IMPACT: When studying consortia, it makes sense to develop a typology of groups based on some performance indicators. The results of this study imply that government, rural communities, and consortium staff and steering committees should forge the consortium concept by expanding membership in order to gain greater financial benefits for individual hospitals.  (+info)

Barriers to guideline adherence. Based on a presentation by Michael Cabana, MD. (5/3452)

Successful implementation of the Sixth Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC-VI) should improve quality of care by decreasing inappropriate variation and by disseminating new advances to everyday practice. A key component of this process is physician adherence to JNC-VI guidelines. However several reports in the literature show a discrepancy between hypertension guidelines and actual practice. The factors that influence physician behavior change and optimal use of practice guidelines are poorly understood. A combined model that uses the Awareness-to-Adherence Model and Social Cognitive Theory identifies five sequential steps that lead to adherence to a guideline--awareness, agreement, self-efficacy, outcome expectancy, and presence of a cueing mechanism. Barriers to implementation may occur at any of these steps and can be identified with this model. Programs can then be designed to overcome specific barriers. By conceptualizing the underlying issues in physician adherence, the combined model should be useful to guideline developers, practice directors, and health services researchers.  (+info)

Hypertension and managed care. Based on a presentation by Robert P. Jacobs, MD, MBA. (6/3452)

A shift in principles has accompanied the evolution of healthcare delivery from a fee-for-service system to managed care. Managed care organizations have to make decisions on the allocation of healthcare resources that will enhance the care of the entire population. Cost reduction has been a major driver for managed care, but this is increasingly being supplanted by other goals such as increasing the quality of care and the value of health services and providing accountability. As the population ages, management of chronic lifelong illness will pose an increasing challenge. Hypertension is a common chronic illness that, if left untreated, imposes an enormous economic burden on society. These and other aspects of the disease and its management make it eminently suitable for intervention in a managed care setting. Challenges and opportunities exist for disease management initiatives for hypertension in the managed care environment. As health plans enhance their data systems and begin to focus on the long-term benefits of chronic disease management, hypertension will certainly be an early target for intervention and control.  (+info)

Selfish sentinels in cooperative mammals. (7/3452)

Like humans engaged in risky activities, group members of some animal societies take turns acting as sentinels. Explanations of the evolution of sentinel behavior have frequently relied on kin selection or reciprocal altruism, but recent models suggest that guarding may be an individual's optimal activity once its stomach is full if no other animal is on guard. This paper provides support for this last explanation by showing that, in groups of meerkats (Suricata suricatta), animals guard from safe sites, and solitary individuals as well as group members spend part of their time on guard. Though individuals seldom take successive guarding bouts, there is no regular rota, and the provision of food increases contributions to guarding and reduces the latency between bouts by the same individual.  (+info)

Evidence-based nephrology. (8/3452)

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are the best approaches available for summarizing the available evidence concerning the efficacy of therapies. Although the renal field has been slow to use these techniques, they are being used increasingly. In March 1997, the Cochrane Renal Group was formed, and this group aims to produce and maintain up to date systematic reviews of the evidence on the effectiveness of therapies used to treat patients with renal diseases. This group is part of the Cochrane Collaboration which is an international structure grouping collaborators together, with the aim of preparing, maintaining and disseminating systematic reviews of the effects of health care in all areas of medicine.  (+info)

The average wait time observed in the preintervention group is similar to the wait times observed in other research regarding prior authorizations of HCV infection treatment.8 Do et al8 found that approximately 1 in 5 prescriptions for HCV therapy are initially denied by PBMs, which require provider appeal. Introducing a collaborative approach to processing prior authorizations between pharmacy and the clinic staff resulted in a reduction in the time between the provider ordering the medication and the pharmacys awareness that the medication had been approved by the PBM. In addition to the reduction in mean wait time in the adjusted model, the spread in the distribution of times was reduced as seen by the reduced standard deviation in both unadjusted and adjusted models. From a customer service standpoint, more precision with wait times allows the clinic and pharmacy teams to manage patient expectations and improve satisfaction with service.13 A multidisciplinary approach may also improve the ...

As a second example, even though academic and clinical educators strive to facilitate students ability to ask questions and answer them, they may differ in their focus. Academic educators may encourage students to ask empirical questions whereas clinical educators may push students to ask clinical questions. Again, both types of questions need to be asked and answered for future professionals to keep the research and clinical aspects of the profession alive. However, integration of academic and clinical questions does not mean the questions must be asked at the same time and same place. Rather, students must be shown how to ask these questions, and how questions from either aspect of our profession affect the other. An average daily balance of academic and clinical questions asked and answered across a curriculum ensures a healthy return on educators invested efforts ...

This is partly due to on specialization focused business strategies and the effects of globalization. Often these collaborative networks are submitted to web-based services linked through service oriented architecture (SOA) to individual firms ERP environment. However, when looking at Western Europe, integration of business activities is still challenged by a blockade of traditional business patterns. Participants in collaborative networks have to cross bridges to break with traditional business patterns. Virtues in business such as: transparency, trustworthiness, and action orientation are considered as constraints. Traditional business cherishes illusion about price, capacity and firms business standards. To implement change and transparent business settings ethical leadership is required.

Objective. The objective of this project was to develop core competencies in pain assessment and management for prelicensure health professional education. Such core pain competencies common to all prelicensure health professionals have not been previously reported. Methods. An interprofessional executive committee led a consensus-building process to develop the core competencies. An in-depth literature review was conducted followed by engagement of an interprofessional Competency Advisory Committee to critique competencies through an iterative process. A 2-day summit was held so that consensus could be reached. Results. The consensus-derived competencies were categorized within four domains: multidimensional nature of pain, pain assessment and measurement, management of pain, and context of pain management. These domains address the fundamental concepts and complexity of pain; how pain is observed and assessed; collaborative approaches to treatment options; and application of competencies across the

Harwood believes solutions to our shared problems will not be found by government. Rather they require people and communities working together. I agree, but I would add institutions to the mix. I think schools, nonprofits and the media are part of the collaborative approach needed for problem-solving. But Harwoods point is well taken. He argues that the biggest issue we face is to restore our belief that we can come together and get things done, and that will only happen in our local communities. "We each have the power within us to overcome our anxiety and set a new trajectory for the country," Harwood writes. I find that hopeful.. But what do we do when conditions within our local communities are also the cause of our anxiety? How do we reconnect with others when theres been a breakdown of trust within the very space to which we need to turn for solutions?. Differences of opinion can be healthy. If we are willing to listen to each other and make a sincere effort to find common ground, we can ...

Overall, most people I spoke with after the event seemed generally pleased with Mr. Clintons performance, especially when he admitted the limitations of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). They liked his quip about how 99.5% of peoples DNA are identical, yet we spend so much time focused on making sure others know the differences in the remaining 0.5% of their genome. It was clear he was a master at reaching across the aisle and he opined for a more collaborative approach to resolving our nations health care problems. When asked whether he thought the ACA (Affordable Care Act) would fix whats wrong with Americas health care system, he said honestly "Maybe. Maybe not." But he stuck with the partisan narrative of error management, paying by "performance" rather than procedures and asking doctors to do their part to fix the system, seemingly unaware of the 30% drop in RVU payments that took hold 1 January 2013 and the 2% Medicare payments to physicians that recently affected many members of his ...

When I discussed a cloud options for PLM yesterday in my article, I mentioned that a very significant opportunity comes in ability to share and collaborate on the product related content (drawings, models, bills) when using cloud models. This option comes as a pathway for those companies and people that have a concern to store overall product IP on cloud storage.. So, latest feature introduced by Google Docs- Shared Folders is the best example of cloud based technology to implement collaboration approach. Actually, I think PLM vendors need to take a very careful look on such capabilities of Google Docs. I do see an option when many of the smaller customers will be able to use Share Folders in their current configuration to facilitate document exchange and collaboration with suppliers and across the enterprise.. ...

The automatic analysis provides robust and reliable results that overlapped with the manual analyses with an overall of higher than 90% agreement. Moreover, for the analysts, the organization and display of screening spectra stacked with all the reference spectra are of invaluable help for validating results and making decisions in cases where compound signals are close to each other. ...
Collaboration is the process of working across agency and professional lines towards shared goals and objectives. The degree of connection, integration and partnership between different professionals and agencies can vary from one collaborative effort to the next. The level of involvement is often dictated by the purpose and complexity of collaboration and the shared goals.. A primary strategy in delivering human services, collaboration holds great potential in leveraging the resources, knowledge and expertise in a fragmented system. Collaboration has the potential to help agencies respond to complex social problems under ever increasing budget pressures, demand for efficiency and a rising public demand for services. Although a promising practice, and increasingly on the rise, the majority of collaborations do not succeed. Sustained and successful collaboration requires continues evaluation and assessment of the structure, process and outcome of collaboration.. ...

When designing this method, the researchers aimed for a more practical approach to helping patients. Meeting with health care professionals on only 1 occasion seems to be more feasible in light of the hectic lifestyle many people have today. The success of this 1-stop clinic approach has been an encouraging experience. Smoking-cessation rates using health care professional counseling alone are ~12%, whereas success rates with NRT alone after 6 months have ranged from 3.0% to 9.2%.2 In the first arm of this program, 22% of people had quit smoking after 6 months. The outcome rates were even higher in the second project, 43%, even with limited participation in follow-up. Conclusion Smoking contributes to many medical conditions and disease states. Outcomes from this model show the effectiveness of spirometry results as a motivational technique and further evidence of its use as an important tool in the diagnosis of abnormal airway function. The NLHEP advocates the use of spirometry, with the goal ...

Care coordination is a process that ensures a patients health services and information sharing preferences and needs are met. Care coordination, a critical component during the nations current shift from a fragmented system toward one that stresses accountability and continuity, is primarily accomplished by people as opposed to technology. This demands effective collaboration between the providers and organizations caring for each individual patient as opposed to service delivery from numerous providers.. In a new report, Laying a Foundation for Care Coordination: The Role of Health IT, the eHealth Initiative (EHI) describes ways public and private sectors can use health IT infrastructure to support care coordination. It also explores the functions and qualities required to achieve this vision.. The report presents a set of unified principles, which may be considered when implementing health IT to ensure it is effective in supporting care coordination. It also identifies four primary ...
Rovio and DreamWorks Animation today announced that they have teamed up to create a new game for mobile platforms. Rovio is best known as the creator of the Angry Birds games. The new game will be base on DreamWorks upcoming movie The Croods and will be released to Android and iOS platforms on March 14..

Evolutionary game theory (EGT) is the application of game theory to evolving populations in biology. It defines a framework of contests, strategies, and analytics into which Darwinian competition can be modelled. It originated in 1973 with John Maynard Smith and George R. Prices formalisation of contests, analysed as strategies, and the mathematical criteria that can be used to predict the results of competing strategies. Evolutionary game theory differs from classical game theory in focusing more on the dynamics of strategy change. This is influenced by the frequency of the competing strategies in the population. Evolutionary game theory has helped to explain the basis of altruistic behaviours in Darwinian evolution. It has in turn become of interest to economists, sociologists, anthropologists, and philosophers. Classical non-cooperative game theory was conceived by John von Neumann to determine optimal strategies in competitions between adversaries. A contest involves players, all of whom ...
Eight male and eight female subjects played a matrix form of the Prisoners Dilemma game; an additional eight male and eight female subjects played a non-matrix form of the game. Each subject played for both high monetary reward (maximum joint payoff of $1.00 per trial for 15 trials) and low monetary reward (maximum joint payoff of $.10 per trial for 15 trails). Half of the subjects played first for low reward and then for high. The order was reversed for the other half of the subjects. It was predicted that there would be greater cooperation when the subjects were given (1) large rewards as compared to small, and (2) non-matrix presentation as compared to matrix. The results failed to confirm these hypotheses. In addition, there were no sex differences in style of play nor were there significant interactions among the three variables. However, the overall level of cooperative play was considerably higher than is usually encountered in these games, averaging 55%, and the usual over trials decline
This chapter focuses on the behaviour in the Ultimatum and Public Goods Games of the Tsimane, a group of Bolivian forager-horticulturalists. The study attempts to answer two questions: (1) whether Tsimane game behaviour differs from the standard results found among westernized, market‐oriented, and industrialized populations, and (2) whether differential market exposure and acculturation affect norms of fairness and game behaviour across Tsimane villages. The chapter is arranged as follows: an introduction discusses cross‐cultural game results, makes some predictions for results from the Tsimane, and describes their characteristics; next, the methods used are outlined and the results are presented and analysed; the final section of the chapter discusses several important questions raised by the research. Offers made by the Tsimane in the Ultimatum Game tended to be lower than those found among western populations and higher than those reported for the Machiguenga of Peru (ch. 5), while
Interorganizational system standards have reached a new era in industry. An era that has largely been overlooked in research but is on the verge of immense widespread diffusion. The notion of an interorganizational system (IOS) has nearly been lost. Virtually eclipsed by the attention towards e-commerce, B2B, P2P and many others. When asked about interorganizational systems, invariably most think of electronic data interchange (EDI). Albeit EDI still remains the preeminent type of interorganizational system, IOS solutions have been overhauled since the mid-1990s. IOS solutions are now collaboratively developed, structured around discretely defined cross-company business process standards and able to be distributed via the web. Compared with EDI technology from the past, the notions of open standards code, modularity, scalability, and interorganizational business process reengineering are embedded in modern-day IOS development. Fundamentally, this work bridges the research gap between prior ...

Delivering a lecture entitled The Prevention of Occupational Diseases, National Secretary of Safety in Occupational and Environmental Health Practitioners of Nigeria (SOEHPON), Dr Okon Agiba, called for preventive and interventionist programmes for managing occupational health hazards in the country. He noted that this can be achieved through pre-employment medical evaluation, integration of ergonomics into the design of new projects by engineers, and availability of medical emergency response programmes. He added: There must be effective collaboration among occupational and environmental health physicians, safety officers, academics and researchers for the delivery of optimal occupational health services to workers in Nigeria.. Speaking on the same theme, First-Aid expert and Managing Director of Rely Supply Limited, Mrs. Fayo Williams lamented that despite the avalanche of policies on job creation, occupational safety has not been given appropriate attention.

Downloadable! Policies of devolving management of resources from the state to user groups are premised upon the assumption that users will organize and take on the necessary management tasks. While experience has shown that in many places users do so and are very capable, expansion of co-management programs beyond initial pilot sites often shows that this does not happen everywhere. Yet, much is at stake in this, with more widespread adoption of irrigation management transfers and other forms of community-based resource management. It is therefore important to move beyond isolated case studies to comparative analysis of the conditions for collective action. This paper identifies factors affecting organization of water users associations, and collective action by farmers in major canal irrigation systems in India, based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of a stratified sample of 48 minors in four irrigation systems (two each in Rajasthan and Karnataka). Using key variables suggested by the
Although the incidence of serious morbidity with childhood pneumonia has decreased over time, empyema as a complication of community-acquired pneumonia continues to be an important clinical problem. We reviewed the epidemiology and clinical management of empyema at 8 pediatric hospitals in a period before the widespread implementation of universal infant heptavalent pneumococcal vaccine programs in Canada. Health records for children | 18 years admitted from 1/1/00-31/12/03 were searched for ICD-9 code 510 or ICD-10 code J869 (Empyema). Empyema was defined as at least one of: thoracentesis with microbial growth from pleural fluid, or no pleural fluid growth but compatible chemistry or cell count, or radiologist diagnosis, or diagnosis at surgery. Patients with empyemas secondary to chest trauma, thoracic surgery or esophageal rupture were excluded. Data was retrieved using a standard form with a data dictionary. 251 children met inclusion criteria; 51.4% were male. Most children were previously healthy
