The cost of obesity in Canada. (1/684)

BACKGROUND: Almost one-third of adult Canadians are at increased risk of disability, disease and premature death because of being obese. In order to allocate limited health care resources rationally, it is necessary to elucidate the economic burden of obesity. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the direct costs related to the treatment of and research into obesity in Canada in 1997. METHODS: The prevalence of obesity (body mass index of 27 or greater) in Canada was determined using data from the National Population Health Survey, 1994-1995. Ten comorbidities of obesity were identified from the medical literature. A population attributable fraction (PAF) was calculated for each comorbidity with data from large cohort studies to determine the extent to which each comorbidity and its management costs were attributable to obesity. The direct cost of each comorbidity was determined using data from the Canadian Institute of Health Information (for direct expenditure categories) and from Health Canada (for the proportion of expenditure category attributable to the comorbidity). This prevalence-based approach identified the direct costs of hospital care, physician services, services of other health professionals, drugs, other health care and health research. For each comorbidity, the cost attributable to obesity was determined by multiplying the PAF by the total direct cost of the comorbidity. The overall impact of obesity was estimated as the sum of the PAF-weighted costs of treating the comorbidities. A sensitivity analysis was completed on both the estimated costs and the PAFs. RESULTS: The total direct cost of obesity in Canada in 1997 was estimated to be over $1.8 billion. This corresponded to 2.4% of the total health care expenditures for all diseases in Canada in 1997. The sensitivity analysis revealed that the total cost could be as high as $3.5 billion or as low as $829.4 million; this corresponded to 4.6% and 1.1% respectively of the total health care expenditures in 1997. When the contributions of the comorbidities to the total cost were considered, the 3 largest contributors were hypertension ($656.6 million), type 2 diabetes mellitus ($423.2 million) and coronary artery disease ($346.0 million). INTERPRETATION: A considerable proportion of health care dollars is devoted to the treatment and management of obesity-related comorbidities in Canada. Further research into the therapeutic benefits and cost-effectiveness of management strategies for obesity is required. It is anticipated that the prevention and treatment of obesity will have major positive effects on the overall cost of health care.  (+info)

Selection for oesophagectomy and postoperative outcome in a defined population. (2/684)

OBJECTIVE: To measure the extent of use of, and perioperative mortality from, oesophagectomy for carcinoma of the oesophagus, and to examine the association between oesophagectomy and long term survival. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of cases of oesophageal carcinoma notified to the Thames Cancer Registry. SETTING: South East Thames and South West Thames health regions. PATIENTS: 3273 patients first registered with carcinoma of the oesophagus during 1985-9, 789 of whom were excluded because of incomplete data, leaving 2484 (75.9%) for further analysis. MAIN MEASURES: Treatment of oesophagectomy, mortality within 30 days of oesophagectomy, and duration of survival from date of diagnosis to death, according to patient and tumour characteristics. RESULTS: Oesophagectomy was performed in 571(23.0%) patients. Its use decreased with increasing age (odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 0.935(0.925 to 0.944) per year) and was less common for tumours of the middle or upper third of the oesophagus than the lower third (0.56(0.42 to 0.75)). The proportion of patients undergoing oesophagectomy varied threefold among the 28 districts of residence. The perioperative mortality rate was 15.1(86/571) (12% to 18%); it increased with age (odds ratio 1.05(1.02 to 1.08) per year) and for tumours of the middle or upper third of the oesophagus compared with the lower third (2.52(1.31 to 4.84)). Long term survival was slightly higher for patients undergoing oesophagectomy (0.5% v 0.2%). CONCLUSIONS: Despite a high perioperative mortality rate patients selected for oesophagectomy showed better long term survival than those who were not, suggesting that clinical judgements used in selection were independent markers of a better prognosis. The nature of this selection needs to be more completely characterised to permit a valid evaluation of outcome of oesophagectomy.  (+info)

Resource allocation for public hospitals in Andhra Pradesh, India. (3/684)

The composition of the hospital sector has important implications for cost effectiveness accessibility and coverage. The classification of acute general hospitals is reviewed here with particular reference to India and Andhra Pradesh. Approaches to arrive at a norm for allocation of hospital expenditure among secondary and tertiary hospitals are discussed. The actual allocation of public sector hospital expenditures is analyzed with data from Andhra Pradesh. The shift in allocative emphasis away from hospitals and in favour of primary health care during the 1980s was found to have been equally shared by secondary and tertiary hospitals. The shares of recurrent (non-plan) expenditure to secondary and tertiary hospitals were 51% and 49% respectively. This can be compared to a derived norm of 66% and 33%. The opportunity that new investment funds (plan schemes) could have provided to rectify the expenditure bias against secondary level hospitals was missed as two-thirds of plan expenditure were also spent on tertiary level hospitals. The share of secondary hospital bed capacity was 45.5% against India's Planning Commission norm of 70%. Public spending strategies should explicitly consider what mix of hospital services is being financed as well as the balance between hospital and primary health care expenditures.  (+info)

Ability to pay for health care: concepts and evidence. (4/684)

In many developing countries people are expected to contribute to the cost of health care from their own pockets. As a result, people's ability to pay (ATP) for health care, or the affordability of health care, has become a critical policy issue in developing countries, and a particularly urgent issue where households face combined user fee burdens from various essential service sectors such as health, education and water. Research and policy debates have focused on willingness to pay (WTP) for essential services, and have tended to assume that WTP is synonymous with ATP. This paper questions this assumption, and suggests that WTP may not reflect ATP. Households may persist in paying for care, but to mobilize resources they may sacrifice other basic needs such as food and education, with serious consequences for the household or individuals within it. The opportunity costs of payment make the payment 'unaffordable' because other basic needs are sacrificed. An approach to ATP founded on basic needs and the opportunity costs of payment strategies (including non-utilization) is therefore proposed. From the few studies available, common household responses to payment difficulties are identified, ranging from borrowing to more serious 'distress sales' of productive assets (e.g. land), delays to treatment and, ultimately, abandonment of treatment. Although these strategies may have a devastating impact on livelihoods and health, few studies have investigated them in any detail. In-depth longitudinal household studies are proposed to develop understanding of ATP and to inform policy initiative which might contribute to more affordable health care.  (+info)

Choice and accountability in health promotion: the role of health economics. (5/684)

Choices need to be made between competing uses of health care resources. There is debate about how these choices should be made, who should make them and the criteria upon which they should be made. Evaluation of health care is an important part of this debate. It has been suggested that the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion is limited, both because the methods and principles underlying economic evaluation are unsuited to health promotion, and because the political and cultural processes governing the health care system are more appropriate mechanisms for allocating health care resources than systematic economic analysis of the costs and benefits of different health care choices. This view misrepresents and misunderstands the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion. It overstates the undoubted methodological difficulties of evaluating health promotion. It also argues, mistakenly, that economists see economic evaluation as a substitute for the political and cultural processes governing health care, rather than an input to them. This paper argues for an economics input on grounds of efficiency, accountability and ethics, and challenges the critics of the economic approach to judge alternative mechanisms for allocating resources by the same criteria.  (+info)

Audit in the therapy professions: some constraints on progress. (6/684)

AIMS: To ascertain views about constraints on the progress of audit experienced by members of four of the therapy professions: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and clinical psychology. METHODS: Interviews in six health service sites with a history of audit in these professions. 62 interviews were held with members of the four professions and 60 with other personnel with relevant involvement. Five main themes emerged as the constraints on progress: resources; expertise; relations between groups; organisational structures; and overall planning of audit activities. RESULTS: Concerns about resources focused on lack of time, insufficient finance, and lack of access to appropriate systems of information technology. Insufficient expertise was identified as a major constraint on progress. Guidance on designing instruments for collection of data was the main concern, but help with writing proposals, specifying and keeping to objectives, analysing data, and writing reports was also required. Although sources of guidance were sometimes available, more commonly this was not the case. Several aspects of relations between groups were reported as constraining the progress of audit. These included support and commitment, choice of audit topics, conflicts between staff, willingness to participate and change practice, and concerns about confidentiality. Organisational structures which constrained audit included weak links between heads of professional services and managers of provider units, the inhibiting effect of change, the weakening of professional coherence when therapists were split across directorates, and the ethos of regarding audit findings as business secrets. Lack of an overall plan for audit meant that while some resources were available, others equally necessary for successful completion of projects were not. CONCLUSION: Members of four of the therapy professions identified a wide range of constraints on the progress of audit. If their commitment to audit is to be maintained these constraints require resolution. It is suggested that such expert advice, but also that these are directed towards the particular needs of the four professions. Moreover, a forum is required within which all those with a stake in therapy audit can acknowledge and resolve the different agendas which they may have in the enterprise.  (+info)

Aid instruments and health systems development: an analysis of current practice. (7/684)

There has been a clear shift in the policy of many donors in the health sector-away from discrete project assistance towards more broad-based sectoral support. This paper, based on interviews with officials in a number of bilateral and multilateral agencies, explores whether this shift in policy has been matched by similar changes in the form or range of aid instruments. The paper develops a framework for examining current practice in relation to the different objectives that donors seek to promote through technical and financial assistance. In particular, it looks in some detail at the advantages and disadvantages of budgetary support compared to more traditional forms of project assistance. It concludes that the debate should not be about whether one form of aid is better than another. Ideally, they should be complementary and the forms, channels and systems used for managing aid need to be assessed in relation to how they help to achieve the mix of development objectives that are most appropriate to the country concerned. The review demonstrates that this is a complex task and that to achieve an effective balance is not easy. The final section summarizes the main themes emerging from the discussion and suggests some preliminary conclusions and proposals for future action.  (+info)

Costs and financing of improvements in the quality of maternal health services through the Bamako Initiative in Nigeria. (8/684)

This paper reports on a study to assess the quality of maternal health care in public health facilities in Nigeria and to identify the resource implications of making the necessary quality improvements. Drawing upon unifying themes from quality assurance, basic microeconomics and the Bamako Initiative, locally defined norms were used to estimate resource requirements for improving the quality of maternal health care. Wide gaps existed between what is required (the norm) and what was available in terms of fixed and variable resources required for the delivery of maternal health services in public facilities implementing the Bamako Initiative in the Local Government Areas studied. Given such constraints, it was highly unlikely that technically acceptable standards of care could be met without additional resource inputs to meet the norm. This is part of the cost of doing business and merits serious policy dialogue. Revenue generation from health services was poor and appeared to be more related to inadequate supply of essential drugs and consumables than to the use of uneconomic fee scales. It is likely that user fees will be necessary to supplement scarce government budgets, especially to fund the most critical variable inputs associated with quality improvements. However, any user fee system, especially one that raises fees to patients, will have to be accompanied by immediate and visible quality improvements. Without such quality improvements, cost recovery will result in even lower utilization and attempts to generate new revenues are unlikely to succeed.  (+info)

The lung allocation score (LAS) is a numerical value used by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) to assign relative priority for distributing donated lungs for transplantation within the United States. The lung allocation score takes into account various measures of a patients health in order to direct donated organs towards the patients who would best benefit from a lung transplant. The LAS system replaces the older method within the United States of allocating donated lungs strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, according to blood type compatibility and distance from the donor hospital. The older method is still used for patients under the age of 12. The LAS system is still being evaluated and revised.[1] The reason for this continuing analysis is the need to balance on one hand the desire to help those patients in direct need, versus the statistical likelihood of the patient to survive the procedure, as well as the post-operative risks of infection and transplant rejection.[2] ...
Implemented in 2005, the lung allocation score is used to prioritize patients awaiting lung transplants in the US. Sicker transplant candidates have a higher calculated score and are placed at the top of the list. But a recent study led by Maryam Valapour, M.D., MPP, director of Lung Transplant Outcomes in Cleveland Clinics Respiratory Institute, found including new clinical variables helped to better identify the sickest cystic fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients awaiting transplants.

The decision to develop a NICE guideline or quality standard on a particular health, public health or social care topic is influenced by a number of factors.. Generally, the topics selected come either from libraries of quality standard topics already referred to NICE, or from updates of previously published guidelines.. The focus on topic selection at NICE therefore is largely on prioritising existing topics. Alongside this portfolio of topics, NICEs commissioners(NHS England and the Department of Health) are likely to continue to identify a small number of new topics, which will have to be similarly prioritised.. On this page the approach to prioritising referred topics for guidelines and quality standards is set out, along with the mechanism for agreeing any additional new topics. The core elements of this process will be included in the new unified guideline manual.. This process applies only to guidelines for public health, social care and clinical topics, not to NICE guidance on new ...
The United States allocates health care without an overt system of rationing. This article analyzes the forces that guide resource allocation to craniofacial care. Various possible allocation systems are reviewed for how decision makers might evaluate proposed programs for legislative funding. Using a case-based exercise, readers are asked to weigh the potential costs and benefits of six health and social programs. These programs are also systematically examined for factors that are likely to affect resource allocation decisions. Eleven factors that affect decision-making are utilized in the analysis, ranging from the cost per client to emotional or human interest content of the proposed programs. Decisions about preventive programs are compared with those involving therapeutic programs. The allocation of resources to craniofacial programs, including those for children with rare major craniofacial conditions, is considered in the context of social justice and broad contemporary ethical and ...

An accompanying editorial by Richard B. Freeman, M.D. of the Division of Transplant Surgery at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston, MA, notes that while quality of life is an important component of healthcare decision-making, decisions about organ allocation must be considered within the context of the severe organ shortage. In the current extremely constrained donor supply, the question is not whether an individual patient s HRQL [health-related quality of life] is poor enough to warrant intervention with transplantation but more directly, to whom, among all of the potential recipients of a given donor liver, should that donor liver be offered. He maintains that quality of life should not outweigh mortality risk in organ allocation decisions and that a patient must first be alive in order to measure his or her quality of life ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Resource allocation over network dynamics without timescale separation. AU - Proutiere, Alexandre. AU - Yi, Yung. AU - Tian, Lan. AU - Chiang, Mung. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - We consider a widely applicable model of resource allocation where two sequences of events are coupled: on continuous time axis (t), network dynamics evolve over time. On a discrete time axis [t], certain control laws update resource allocation variables according to some proposed algorithm. The algorithmic updates, together with exogenous events out of the algorithms control, change the network dynamics, which in turn changes the trajectory of the algorithm, thus forming a loop that couples the two sequences of events. In between the algorithmic updates at [t - 1] and [t], the network dynamics continue evolve randomly as influenced by the previous variable settings at time [t - 1]. The standard way used to avoid the subsequent analytic difficulty is to assume the separation of timescales, which in turn ...

This paper analyses whether the use of uncorrelated underlying risk factors, as opposed to correlated asset returns, can lead to a more efficient framework for measuring and managing portfolio diversification.. The paper, by academics at EDHEC Business School and SYMMYS, acknowledges that the ability to construct well-diversified portfolios is a challenge of critical importance in the context of designing good proxies for performance-seeking portfolios. It shows that a seemingly well-diversified allocation to asset classes may well result in a portfolio that is heavily concentrated in terms of factor exposures. In this context, it argues, it is of high relevance to measure and manage the effective number of bets in a portfolio.. To access the paper click below.

We recommend two important assessments in prioritising research needs in medicines for children: public health assessment,16 comprising the severity and prevalence of disease and the availability of treatment alternatives; and assessment of use. This may comprise the frequency or volume of use and the licensing/labelling status of medicines for children. The use of off label and unlicensed medicines implies that there are no proper labelling and dosing recommendations, which can potentially be harmful to children.17 18 19 20 Therefore off label and unlicensed medicines should be a higher priority for research than licensed/on label medications, especially if no data on safety and efficacy in children are available. We focused on assessing the volume and labelling status to provide knowledge to experts and facilitate research prioritisation that includes both the public health as well as the assessment of use.. Our data on use support the conclusions of the recently published EMEA ...

Usage Notes. Specifying the Path of the Allocation. The path of the allocation is the route the allocation system takes to go from the source data to the target data. Very different results derive from different allocation paths. You specify the path with the RELATION statements that you enter in the aggmap. The relation objects in the RELATION statements and the order of those statements specify the path and the method of allocation.. The allocation path goes from any level in the hierarchy of a dimension to any lower level of the hierarchy. You use a relation object that relates the members of the hierarchy to each other (a self-relation) to identify the elements of the hierarchy that you want to participate in the allocation. The allocation proceeds down the hierarchy of the dimension in the first RELATION statement in the aggmap, then down the hierarchy of the second RELATION statement, and so on.. When the dimension has multiple hierarchies, you must use the qdr argument in the RELATION ...

Port la Nouvelle, 29 July 2021,. After a seemingly endless wait of more than four years, French justice has finally ruled in favour of the Union of Small-Scale Fishers from the Occitan Region (Syndicat professionnel des pêcheurs petits métiers dOccitanie (SPMO)). A class action was brought by the SPMO and three other stakeholders¹ (CDPMEM du Var, Prudhomie de la Ciotat and Plate-forme de la petite pêche artisanale française). The LIFE platform (Low Impact Fishers of Europe) gave financial and moral support to this procedure to ensure that the concerns of other EU small-scale low impact fishers were represented, facing as they do similar difficulties of access to fishing rights.. The case is important because the judges ruling from the hearing at the Administrative Court of Montpellier has implications for how fishing quotas are allocated not only in France, but in the wider EU. A key issue highlighted by the judge is that the Bluefin tuna quota allocation mechanism falls short of ...

N2 - Compared to the CTP score (Table 9), the MELD and PELD models provide the means to more accurately measure liver disease severity and to better predict which patients are at risk of dying on the waiting list. The relation between the MELD score and the risk of 3-month mortality is shown in Fig. 7. Most importantly, by de-emphasizing waiting time these two models will allow organ allocation based on medical urgency, as mandated in the DHHS final rule. However, while the MELD score is an extremely powerful predictor of the probability of death in patients with chronic liver disease, it does not address one of the guidelines in the final rule, that an organ allocation system should promote the ...

A system is provided for transmitting/receiving downlink resource allocation information in a communication system. In the system, a base station generates first information including downlink resource allocation information necessary for supporting a first mode supported by the base station, generates second information including length information of the first information, and transmits the first information and the second information. A mobile station notifies the base station of a second mode supported by the mobile station, receives, after the notification, the first information and the second information from the base station, and skips without decoding as much downlink resource allocation information as a length corresponding to the length information without decoding, if the first mode is different from the second mode.
BACKGROUND Recently, a global commitment has been made to expand access to antiretrovirals (ARVs) in the developing world. However, in many resource-constrained countries the number of individuals infected with HIV in need of treatment will far exceed the supply of ARVs, and only a limited number of health-care facilities (HCFs) will be available for ARV distribution. Deciding how to allocate the limited supply of ARVs among HCFs will be extremely difficult. Resource allocation decisions can be made on the basis of many epidemiological, ethical, or preferential treatment priority criteria. METHODS AND FINDINGS Here we use operations research techniques, and we show how to determine the optimal strategy for allocating ARVs among HCFs in order to satisfy the equitable criterion that each individual infected with HIV has an equal chance of receiving ARVs. We present a novel spatial mathematical model that includes heterogeneity in treatment accessibility. We show how to use our theoretical framework, in

In this article, the authors present a strategic factor allocation framework across the total portfolio with the motivation of reframing asset allocation decisions along factor dimensions. There are three parts to this factor, not just asset, allocation framework: (1) measuring the factor exposures across all assets, with an emphasis on consistent treatment for liquid and illiquid markets; (2) determining optimal factor exposures based on criteria unique to each investor; and (3) determining the best mix of assets to implement a desired set of factor exposures subject to investor constraints. The authors emphasize the potential benefits of explicit diversification across factors and demonstrate modifications to typical institutional portfolios in factor space that can result in superior risk-return trade-offs.. TOPICS: Analysis of individual factors/risk premia, portfolio construction ...
My second set of recommendations is centered on marketing & manufacturing strategies and tactics, particularly in the U. S. After read the case, I am convinced that to successfully grow EMI medical imaging business and continue to reduce its dependence on the fickle and low margin music business, EMI has to succeed in the U. S market - the largest and most lucrative market. EMI should streamline and strengthen its U. S. operations, including manufacturing, and provide U. S. subsidiary more decision-making power on product development, parts supplying, pricing and service.. First, recruitment of a leader for its worldwide medical imaging business should be a priority.

Currently, we are in the process of experimenting a diversification and refinement of the consumerâ€(tm)s expectations, as well as a growing demand for innovative, quality products and customized services, exacerbated by rapid technological change affecting both them and the producers. It is also the case of health services that, with Romaniaâ€(tm)s accession to the EU, must align to the European requirements. In the context of limited public resources and growing healthcare needs, socio-economic criteria are necessary for substantiating allocation decisions. With the continuous increase in costs of medical interventions but also the expansion of the range of treatment options available, there is a need to develop and use a range of tools to help establish treatment adopted in the context of justifying the benefits resulting from its implementation. In health, the greatest difficulty for the documentation of investment projects is the main overall effect measurement and evaluation -
Downloadable! We study the portfolio allocation decisions of Australian households using the relatively new Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey. We focus on household allocations to risky financial assets. Our empirical analysis considers a range of hypothesised determinants of these allocations. We find background risk factors posed by labour income uncertainty and health risk are important. Credit constraints and observed risk preferences play the expected role. A positive age gradient is identified for risky asset holdings and home-ownership is associated with greater risky asset holdings. A unifying theme for many of our empirical findings is the important role played by financial awareness and knowledge in determining risky asset holdings. Many non-stockholding households appear to lack the experience and financial literacy that might enable them to benefit from direct investment in stocks.

Historically credit risk portfolios have been managed within separate lines of business, creating silos of activity separate from market and operational risk. But regulatory requirements, accounting rules changes and an evolving economic environment are forcing financial and risk stakeholders to collaborate across the firm. Banks are now integrating credit portfolio strategies with other lines of business that affect market, liquidity and operational risk.. With this sea change, credit risk models need to support risk management and capital allocation decisions at a firmwide level - and they need powerful, automated tools to address this challenge. Developing and executing credit risk models as they become increasingly integrated with firmwide risk, balance sheet targets and limits will require new software and technology, from more sophisticated models to enhanced data management and high performance computing.. ...

We asked lawmakers and stakeholders to use post-election perspective to define priorities for both the state Legislatures special session on health care next month and the legislative session that follows.
The assessment of quality within health care, and perhaps particularly primary health care, remains both difficult and controversial. There are as yet no tools capable of assessing the quality of primary care delivered to those who have multiple and compounding conditions. Such tools will be dependent on a much richer understanding of the complex interactions between different conditions, diagnoses, and contexts and of the challenges of prioritising, integrating, and personalising care for a succession of different individuals, families, and communities.15. Quality of care needs to be assessed and calibrated at many different levels: the level of the implementation of evidence based guidelines; the level of the needs, values, and priorities of the individual patients; the level of the family and the community involved in the care and support of that patient; various population levels; and finally the level of the whole healthcare system, where affordability and equity become the over-riding ...

Other patients discounted those problems that they felt were unrelated to their health, or that they already had plans for dealing with. Patients found that using the form and then reflecting on their answers by attempting to prioritise three problems helped them to identify where their main issues were and reflect on health issues as they related to the rest of their life, rather than in a condition-specific way (as is the norm in a consultation).

I just had to insert this photo of Edric. I think he looks so handsome here!). What do I mean? Sometimes Edric will assign me a task or responsibility and he expects me to get it done expediently. My problem is I get so busy with the kids and other commitments so that I either forget or delay acting upon his requests.. He will ask me, Did you get such and such done? and I will be like, Ummm…oh yah, I forgot…okay I will do it.. Other times, prioritising him is about dropping what I am doing in the present to give him attention. When Im at the table with him, he prefers that I dont exit the scene until he is done eating, too. He asks me to ignore all my gadgets and set them aside when we are together. When he comes home from work, he wants me to spend time with him and ask him about his day.. Edric isnt unreasonable about his desire for respect. He doesnt even say, I want you to respect me by doing this and that… But Gods word commands me to.. Nevertheless, each individual among ...
Nobody in the legal sector is denying the importance of cyber-security. Protecting the sensitive data your firm holds on behalf of its clients is essential.. Its an established fact that the threat from cyber criminals is increasing and evolving rapidly, and law firms are responding by prioritising cyber-security. It is now the sectors number one technology investment area.. Nevertheless, different firms have different ways of tackling this crucial issue. As legal sector cloud and IT specialists, we deal almost exclusively with law firms. In our experience, their approaches broadly divide into three strands.. Weve never been attacked, so lets just make sure were compliant and get the basics right. Just enough but no more is a tempting philosophy for a cost-conscious firm. Especially if you have never experienced the severe damage a cyberattack can cause.. Firms understand the need to be compliant, not least to avoid severe penalties in such a heavily regulated sector. They also ...

In fact the extremes in many categories were over 25% declines. Of course a 10% decline in revenue is a extreme for many firms.. When we asked about business challenges the top three reported by the respondents were:. 1. Increasing revenue. 2. Maximizing Profit. 3. More effective and efficient project management. Also high on the list was gaining better customer insight and increasing visibility into key business metrics.

I call Medtronic to see what my options are - either I return the un-returnable medical supplies that I cannot use OR I see if a larger pump is covered under my current pump warranty (expires spring 2015 - eep!) and their legal definition of medical necessity.

I am entitled to a new pump… but its on back order for at least 5 to 6 weeks due to increased demand for the 3.0 mL size snazzy, updated MiniMed pump.

The Danny Haren trade actually is a great comp. While Haren is a tick below Peavy in talent and was under team control for 3 years instead of 5, you have to look at the production vs cost of those years they are under control. As of the Haren trade, he was under contract from 2008 at 4M, 2009 at 5.5M and 2010 at a 6.75M club option. Making for a total of 3 years of Haren at 16.25M. Peavys deal is 5/78M (assuming option is picked up). Peavys deal is very team friendly in year 1, but escalates significantly in 2010. Its still below market value, but by somewhere around 3-5M a year, whereas Haren is being compensated under market value by roughly 10M/year. If you add up all the years, Haren over 3 years and Peavy over 5 years, (even though Peavy is more years) are worth about the same under market value in total. Throw in that Haren (while not being the caliber of Peavy) was going to be paid roughly 5M as opposed to roughly 15M leaving more of a scarce resource ($) to be utilized elsewhere as ...
