Raising the bar: the use of performance guarantees by the Pacific Business Group on Health. (1/149)

In 1996 the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH) negotiated more than two dozen performance guarantees with thirteen of California's largest health maintenance organizations (HMOs) on behalf the seventeen large employers in its Negotiating Alliance. The negotiations put more than $8 million at risk for meeting performance targets with the goal of improving the performance of all health plans. Nearly $2 million, or 23 percent of the premium at risk, was refunded to the PBGH by the HMOs for missed targets. The majority of plans met their targets for satisfaction with the health plan and physicians, as well as cesarean section, mammography, Pap smear, and prenatal care rates. However, eight of the thirteen plans missed their targets for childhood immunizations, refunding 86 percent of the premium at risk.  (+info)

A multiple case study of implementation in 10 local Project ASSIST coalitions in North Carolina. (2/149)

Community health promotion relies heavily on coalitions to address a multitude of public health issues. In spite of their widespread use, there have been very few studies of coalitions at various stages of coalition development. The purpose of this study was to identify factors that facilitated or impeded coalition effectiveness in the implementation stage of coalition development. The research design was a multiple case study with cross-case comparisons. Each of the 10 local North Carolina Project ASSIST coalitions constituted a case. Data collection included: semi-structured interviews, observation, document review, and surveys of members and staff. Some of the major factors that facilitated implementation included: the ability of the coalition to provide its own vision, staff with the skills and time to work with the coalition, frequent and productive communication, cohesion or a sense of belonging on the coalition, and complexity of the coalition structure during the intervention phase. Barriers to effective implementation included: staff turnover and staff lacking community organization skills, dependence on the state-level staff during the planning phase and lack of member input into the action plan. Conflict contributed to staff turnover, reluctance to conduct certain activities and difficulty in recruiting members, all of which had implications for implementation.  (+info)

Identification and assessment of high-risk seniors. HMO Workgroup on Care Management. (3/149)

CONTEXT: Many older adults with chronic illnesses and multidimensional needs are at high risk of adverse health outcomes, poor quality of life, and heavy use of health-related services. Modern proactive care of older populations includes identification of such high-risk individuals, assessment of their health-related needs, and interventions designed both to meet those needs and to prevent undesirable outcomes. OBJECTIVE: This paper outlines an approach to the tasks of identifying and assessing high-risk seniors. Intervention identification of high-risk seniors (also called case finding) is accomplished through a combination of periodic screening, recognition of high-risk seniors by clinicians, and analysis of administrative databases. Once identified, potentially high-risk individuals undergo on initial assessment in eight domains: cognition, medical conditions, medications, access to care, functional status, social situation, nutrition, and emotional status. The initial assessment is accomplished in a 30- to 45-minute interview conducted by a skilled professional--usually one with a background in nursing. The data are used to link some high-risk persons with appropriate services and to identify others who require more detailed assessments. Detailed assessment is often performed by interdisciplinary teams of various compositions and methods of operation, depending on local circumstances. CONCLUSION: The rapid growth in Medicare managed care is presenting many opportunities for developing more effective strategies for the proactive care for older populations. Identification and assessment of high-risk individuals are important initial steps in this process, paving the way for testing of interventions designed to reduce adverse health consequences and to improve the quality of life.  (+info)

Reporting comparative results from hospital patient surveys. (4/149)

Externally-reported assessments of hospital quality are in increasing demand, as consumers, purchasers, providers, and public policy makers express growing interest in public disclosure of performance information. This article presents an analysis of a groundbreaking program in Massachusetts to measure and disseminate comparative quality information about patients' hospital experiences. The article emphasizes the reporting structure that was developed to address the project's dual goals of improving the quality of care delivered statewide while also advancing public accountability. Numerous trade-offs were encountered in developing reports that would satisfy a range of purchaser and provider constituencies. The final result was a reporting framework that emphasized preserving detail to ensure visibility for each participating hospital's strengths as well as its priority improvement areas. By avoiding oversimplification of the results, the measurement project helped to support a broad range of successful improvement activity statewide.  (+info)

HRSA's Models That Work Program: implications for improving access to primary health care. (5/149)

The main objective of the Models That Work Campaign (MTW) is improving access to health care for vulnerable and underserved populations. A collaboration between the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and 39 cosponsors--among them national associations, state and federal agencies, community-based organizations, foundations, and businesses--this initiative gives recognition and visibility to innovative and effective service delivery models. Models are selected based on a set of criteria that includes delivery of high quality primary care services, community participation, integration of health and social services, quantifiable outcomes, and replicability. Winners of the competition are showcased nationally and hired to provide training to other communities, to document and publish their strategies, and to provide onsite technical assistance on request.  (+info)

Early experience with a new model of employer group purchasing in Minnesota. (6/149)

The Buyers Health Care Action Group (BHCAG) in the Twin Cities has implemented a new purchasing initiative that offers employees a choice among care systems with nonoverlapping networks of primary care providers. These systems offer a standardized benefit package, submit annual bids, and are paid on a risk-adjusted basis. Employees are provided with information on quality and other differences among systems, and most have financial incentives to choose lower-cost systems. Generally, providers have responded favorably to direct contracting and to risk-adjusted payments but have concerns about the risk-adjustment mechanism used and, more importantly, the strength of employers' commitment to the purchasing model.  (+info)

The pursuit of quality by business coalitions: a national survey. (7/149)

The extent to which business coalitions and their employer members are catalysts for improving quality of care is of interest to policymakers, who need to know where and under what circumstances the marketplace succeeds on its own in assuring quality. Using data from the 1998 National Business Coalition on Health annual survey, this paper indicates that most coalitions have an infrastructure in place that could be tapped to advance quality goals. Although the survey data cannot tell us the extent to which coalitions are exercising their enhanced market influence specifically to improve quality, interviews with coalition leaders provide insights about how quality considerations can factor into coalition strategies.  (+info)

Beyond cost: 'responsible purchasing' of managed care by employers. (8/149)

We explore the extent of "responsible purchasing" by employers--the degree to which employers collect and use nonfinancial information in selecting and managing employee health plans. Most firms believe that they have some responsibility for assessing the quality of the health plans they offer. Some pay attention to plan characteristics such as the ability to provide adequate access to providers and services and scores on enrollee satisfaction surveys. A more limited but still notable number of firms take specific actions based on responsible purchasing information. Because of countervailing pressures, however, it is not clear whether or not the firms most involved in responsible purchasing are signaling a developing trend.  (+info)

PURPOSE: To compare the effectiveness and adverse event profiles of amylin agonists, DPP-4 inhibitors, incretin mimetics, TZDs, and certain combination products for people with type 2 diabetes and for people with type 1 diabetes for pramlintide only. DATA SOURCES: To identify published studies, we searched MEDLINE, The Cochrane Library, Embase, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, and reference lists of included studies through July 2010. We also requested dossiers of information from pharmaceutical manufacturers. REVIEW METHODS: Study selection, data abstraction, validity assessment, grading the strength of the evidence (SOE), and data synthesis were all carried out according to standard Drug Effectiveness Review Project methods. RESULTS: Most of the evidence was limited to adult populations. Most of the included studies evaluated intermediate outcomes, such as HbA1c or weight. Very few studies reported health outcomes and few studies were longer than 6 months. For the amylin agonists, ...
At a time when millions of children and adults are taking drugs for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, the most comprehensive scientific analysis of the drugs to date has found little evidence that they are safe, that one drug is more effective than another or that they help school performance. The 27 drugs studied included Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, Ritalin, Focalin, Cylert, Provigil, and others that, in some households, are well-known for their sometimes calming affects.. The 731-page report was done by the Drug Effectiveness Review Project, based at Oregon State University. The group analyzed 2,287 studies - virtually every investigation ever done on ADHD drugs anywhere in the world - to reach its conclusions. They found:. • No evidence on long-term safety of drugs used to treat ADHD in young children or adolescents.. • Good quality evidence … is lacking that ADHD drugs improve global academic performance, consequences of risky behaviors, social achievements and other ...

email protected]. New Coalition Formed to Address Residential Roof Ventilation. [Washington, DC] - The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) along with six key industry roofing ventilation companies joined together to form the Roof Assembly Ventilation Coalition (RAVC). Based in Washington, DC, the RAVC is a coalition created under the umbrella of ARMA to help identify sound science regarding steep-slope roof ventilation.. The Coalition emerged out of a need for a better understanding of roof ventilation and material performance as it relates to the code and regulatory bodies and other forums. The Coalition will act as the voice of the industry, while identifying areas which need additional research compiled. The Coalition intends to communicate state of the art developments in roof ventilation while educating specifiers, builders, architects, engineers, building code officials, municipalities, the public and other parties as to the benefits of proper roof ventilation.. The Charter ...
Every day, coalition cabinets make policy decisions critical to international politics. Juliet Kaarbo examines the dynamics of these multiparty cabinets in parliamentary democracies in order to assess both the quality of coalition decision making and the degree to which coalitions tend to favor peaceful or military solutions. Are coalition cabinets so riddled by conflict that they cannot make foreign policy effectively, or do the multiple voices represented in the cabinet create more legitimate and imaginative responses to the international system? Do political and institutional constraints inherent to coalition cabinets lead to nonaggressive policies? Or do institutional and political forces precipitate more belligerent behavior?. Employing theory from security studies and political psychology as well as a combination of quantitative cross-national analyses and twelve qualitative comparative case studies of foreign policy made by coalition cabinets in Japan, the Netherlands, and Turkey, Kaarbo ...

Abstract: Electoral coalitions are becoming increasingly popular among opposition parties in Africa because they offer many advantages with respect to reducing party fragmentation and increasing incumbent turnovers. At the same time, however, they are often comprised of parties that are defined predominantly by their leaders personalities and exhibit little differentiation in terms of their policy orientation. Based on a dataset spanning all opposition coalitions since 2000 in Africas electoral democracies, this paper demonstrates not only that coalitions rarely defeat incumbents but also that they are only competitive when major opposition parties are involved. More significantly, the paper highlights that in many countries, a sizeable share of total electoral volatility is due to fluctuations in voting for opposition parties that have belonged to coalitions. The paper argues that such volatility reflects the inability of coalition members to build loyal constituency bases over time, which is ...

WASHINGTON, DC (July 24, 2015) - The National Black Growers Council (NBGC) announced that it will partner with the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, a broad-based coalition led by the Grocery Manufacturers Association and National Corn Growers Association, to advocate for a federal labeling solution for food products made with genetically-enhanced ingredients.. NBGC and its coalition partners are seeking the enactment of federal legislation that creates a voluntary program, administered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to evaluate food labels that claim the presence, or absence, of genetically-enhanced ingredients.. NBGC is pleased to join the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food and looks forward to working with our coalition partners, lawmakers and the public in support of a responsible and effective federal labeling program that prevents the creation of a complicated patchwork of state-based labeling rules that would actually increase, rather than reduce, consumer confusion as ...

Presentation by John Kelly of Not Dead Yet. At the National Council on Independent Living. July 26, 2013. I will talk about organizing a disability rights campaign against attempts to legalize assisted suicide. Ive got three things I want to emphasize in my talk. Coalition, Communication, and Consistency.. COALITION.. In putting together a disability coalition to work against assisted suicide, Massachusetts was lucky to have a ready group of longtime activists from the physical disability community. We formed a single issue organization based solely on opposition to assisted suicide and associated killings. We called our group Second Thoughts, a name that rewarded us by describing what actually happened during the campaign, as Massachusetts voters reconsidered their early support for the assisted suicide referendum.. Our first task was to build as broad a coalition as possible, by making alliances with other communities. First thing to do is reach for all the low hanging fruit, especially other ...
Establishing an enhanced government affairs program through the newly formed IFT Office of Science, Communications, and Government Relations-headquartered in downtown Washington, D.C.-provides IFT with many opportunities to advance the scientific integrity of government policies and programs related to food science and technology. As we carefully assess priority issues and actions, it has become clear that coalitions will continue to be a vital part of IFTs government affairs program. IFT plans to actively participate in coalitions led by other organizations with objectives and actions that are consistent with the interests of IFT and its members. As part of the coalition, IFT will help set the goals and objectives of the group. Membership in a coalition has numerous benefits, not the least of which is strength in numbers. Participating organizations share information and expertise to develop unified positions on issues of importance to the scientific community. Legislators and regulators alike ...
This page was maintained only until 2010. For more up-to-date information, see the Commons Strategies Group site.. In my 2003 opinion editorial Pick the right modernity: Towards a coalition for the commons, I called for bringing together the promoters of information commons (free software and information, co-operative media, open science, creative commons, etc.) and those who fight for a better recognition of physical commons (water, air, environment) and a renewed approach to social public goods (education, health, …). For more information on the why and the possibility of such a coalition for the commons, see Cause commune . The recent International Commons Conference, organized in Berlin by the Heinrich Böll foundation worked towards the definition of a commons-based political platform..

At a federal level, however, to date no government has been formed on this basis. Historically, there have been red-green coalitions in the Bundestag between the SPD and the Greens, and social-liberal coalitions between the SPD and the FDP. However, whilst there may be common ground in terms of social progressivism between the three parties, the FDPs economic liberalism and long association at the federal level with the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) make such a coalition problematic at present and the FDP chairman Guido Westerwelle had specifically ruled out this option for the 2009 federal election[1]. The term became more widely used outside Germany when the inconclusive 2005 federal election led to its use in the international media. Other designations included Africa or Senegal coalition (coined by Green politician Jürgen Trittin). The term Jamaica coalition-sometimes called black traffic light (Schwarze Ampel)-was formed in a similar way, describing a hypothetical ...

Downloadable! We develop a theoretical framework that allows us to study which bilateral links and coalition structures are going to emerge at equilibrium. We define the notion of coalitional network to represent a network and a coalition structure, where the network speciÖes the nature of the relationship each individual has with his coalition members and with individuals outside his coalition. To predict the coalitional networks that are going to emerge at equilibrium we propose the concept of contractual stability which requires that any change made to the coalitional network needs the consent of both the deviating players and their original coalition partners. We show that there always exists a contractually stable coalitional network under the simple majority decision rule and the component-wise egalitarian or majoritarian allocation rules. Moreover, requiring the consent of group members may help to reconcile stability and e¢ ciency.
In the Western press, there are always two coalitions: the coalition controlling the government, and the opposition coalition. In the UK and the US, there are only two parties, so each coalition is a single party. Elsewhere, there are many parties, but, a fortiori, only two coalitions: the one in power and the one out of power. Which means that the press for coalition A always says bad things about coalition B, and the press for coalition B always says bad things about coalition A. But neither dares say that the entire country is on the wrong path, mainly because of self-censorship, since the press fears both the government, and the fact that only the lunatic fringe will pay for any publication that doesnt say the nation is doing GREAT, so economics dictates against criticizing the entire country ...

Five things we must never do again. We must never again accept coalition with the Tories - Every time the party has entered into a coalition with the Tories it has come out seriously damaged. The one in the 1930s ended in a three way split and national irrelevance. This one might be worse. It is a near-death experience. We must never do this again. Why does this happen? Largely because we are a party built on values, not on protecting interests, and coalition with the Tories obscures the publics view of our values. We end up looking like a party of manoeuvre, caring only about holding office.. We must never again promote coalitionism - Much worse than entering a coalition is adopting the stance that coalitions are good in themselves because they bring stability. If people want stability they vote Conservative. The final week of the 2015 campaign was ludicrous. Getting supporters to wave placards saying Stability and Unity was not only deeply illiberal (it looked like something out of ...
In 2012, the coalition entered into a Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Grant with Tompkins Countys Community Coalition for Healthy Youth (CCHY).

The coalition also worked on updating its by-laws and structure, increasing coalition capacity through education and skill-building trainings, and conducted focus groups with community youth to further understand the drug-related social norms and issues facing youth ...

AFib4WARD.com was developed following the 4WARD Conversation Cards, a tool developed after the Coalition identified the need for shared decision making resources in the AFib community. Since its November 2015 launch, the Conversation Cards have been tested with healthcare providers across the country, with an overwhelming majority reporting the cards helped their AFib patients better understand their condition, according to the press release. Both the print and online versions of the cards are part of a broader initiative by the 4WARD Coalition.. With knowledge and insights from various care settings, the 4WARD Coalition is well aware of the challenges in navigating an AFib diagnosis and the various treatment options. Through the successful introduction of the 4WARD Conversation Cards and recent launch of AFib4WARD.com, we are excited to further our mission of advancing shared decision making in anticoagulation care, say 4WARD co-chairs J Donald Easton, clinical professor of Neurology, ...

The Charitable Giving Coalition sent the following letter to Senate and House leadership, encouraging lawmakers to expand and extend the universal charitable deduction in an end-of-year COVID relief package. You can find a PDF of the letter here.. Dear Majority Leader McConnell, Democratic Leader Schumer, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Republican Leader McCarthy:. On behalf of the Charitable Giving Coalition (CGC), we urge you to increase the $300 cap on the above-the-line charitable deduction, as provided in the bipartisan CARES Act that passed in March, and to extend its availability through at least 2021 in the next COVID-19 relief package. The CGC is a coalition of associations representing thousands of charitable and faith-based organizations across the country.. As negotiations on a year-end package continue, Congress can strengthen and expand the temporary, above-the-line universal charitable deduction included in the CARES Act by lifting the cap and extending the proposal through at least ...
And that is where whats good for the Conservatives turns out to be good for the New Democrats as well. The Conservatives can only play coalition government as dangerous in 2015 if they present the NDP as their primary foil - a role the party is more than happy to play, since it amounts to a tacit acknowledgement that they have the momentum now.. Tom Mulcairs message has to be about reinforcing that sense of momentum, of convincing Canadians that a New Democrat government is not only possible but practical, and relatively low-risk: If you really want to throw the bums out, dont go halfway - pull an Alberta and vote NDP. So it helps his cause for voters to think about New Democrats working in a coalition setting with the Liberals - even if theres no guarantee a coalition would get a green light from the Governor General, or that the Conservatives wont pull the shenanigans they did in 2006 and poach a few disaffected Liberals to shore up their position.. Where do the Liberals end up in this ...

Dispersal is a critical life-stage with consequences not only for the individual, but for population dynamics and thus the fate of the whole species. The creation of dispersal coalitions can lead to complex outcomes and affect how changes in abundance occur on the landscape. I examined population dynamics and dispersal coalitions in a population of cooperatively breeding acorn woodpeckers in central California, USA. Using a 34-year dataset on occupancy and abundance, I determined that increases in abundance were determined by dispersal to new locations. This resulted in increased occupancy, rather than increases in group size and larger coalitions. I then examined vocal recruitment via simulated breeding vacancy conflicts to determine whether vocal signaling was sufficient to recruit individuals to a simulated conflict. Despite using recordings of conflict vocalizations, individuals exhibited a territorial response to these simulations, rather than responding as if to a breeding vacancy. Finally, I
