These strategies were unsuccessful in identifying true TB patients and TB claims. New and significant limitations were identified at this stage. First, our algorithms for identifying TB patients could not be validated. For example, the 35 inpatients identified using our claims algorithm and the 100 inpatients identified using hospital discharge records were not the same; there were only 15 overlapping patient ID numbers. This suggested a lack of validity in our case criteria, assuming that TB indicated on the hospital discharge record was the "gold standard" (i.e., that a hospital discharge record with TB as the principal ICD-9 code should be that of a TB true patient, even if some true TB patients do not have a TB ICD-9 code on their hospital discharge record). The detailed claims review (independent of hospital discharge data) yielded concerns about the validity of the case criteria among outpatients as ...

Within the last couple of years lots of doctors have experienced to question if paper patient medical records are the best than the usual simple emr program. Some doctors may be left out as other competing private practices might have already upgraded their systems. Although some doctors see this system as the way forward for healthcare, and others seem like situations are fine how they are. To determine if a method would benefit your workplace, staff and patients, you need to know exactly what a medical records program can perform for you personally.. Keeping Medical Finances Under Control. A clinical records program isnt just a summary of patients files which includes good reputation for their last visits.

But my medical records are still on paper and my doctor has no plans to convert to an electronic system. That makes me wonder how up-to-date she is with other medical advances. What could be the hold-up?. Answer: Changing to electronic medical records (EMR) is a daunting task for physicians who have been in practice for a long time.. They have to go through their old paper files and decide what must be manually entered into the new system. A typical family doctor may have between 1,500 and 2,000 patients..

BACKGROUND: Every year approximately 5000-9000 patients are admitted to a hospital with diarrhoea, which in up to 90% of cases has a non-infectious cause. As a result, single rooms are blocked by patients with non-infectious diarrhoea, while patients with infectious diarrhoea are still in open bays because of a lack of free side rooms. A rapid test for differentiating infectious from non-infectious diarrhoea could be very beneficial for patients. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate MassCode multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the simultaneous diagnosis of multiple enteropathogens directly from stool, in terms of sensitivity/specificity to detect four common important enteropathogens: Clostridium difficile, Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp. and norovirus. DESIGN: A retrospective study of fixed numbers of samples positive for C. difficile (n = 200), Campylobacter spp. (n = 200), Salmonella spp. (n = 100) and norovirus (n = 200) plus samples negative for all these pathogens (n = 300).

Our aim was to develop methods that would support efficient and accurate low-throughput MRSA sequencing in a routine microbiology laboratory in less than 24 h (from DNA extraction to availability of sequence data). The key goals were to maximize the number of isolates sequenced per run, reduce the processing time for DNA preparation, and evaluate quality controls, precision (reproducibility and repeatability), and contamination.. Maximizing the number of isolates per sequencing run was evaluated by performing sequencing runs that contained either 14, 18, or 21 test MRSA isolates from the study panel plus the 3 controls, which were sequenced using the Illumina MiniSeq platform with a run time of 13 h. The median (range) sequence depths for the test MRSA isolates were 92× (33 to 247×), 63× (45 to 77×), and 65× (18 to 107×), respectively, with a minimum of 87% of the genome covered (Table S2). One isolate in the 21-test MRSA run failed the QC metrics based on depth of coverage (17.9×), which ...

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of mortality in the world. One of the outcome indicators recently used to measure hospital performance is 30-day mortality after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This indicator has proven to be a valid and reproducible indicator of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the diagnostic and therapeutic process for AMI patients after hospital admission. The aim of this study was to examine the determinants of inter-hospital variability on 30-day in-hospital mortality after AMI in Tuscany. This indicator is a proxy of 30-day mortality that includes only deaths occurred during the index or subsequent hospitalizations. The study population was identified from hospital discharge records (HDRs) and included all patients with primary or secondary ICD-9-CM codes of AMI (ICD-9 codes 410.xx) that were discharged between January 1, 2009 and November 30, ...
Background: Cincinnati Pre-hospital Stroke Scale (CPSS) and Los Angeles Pre-hospital Stroke Scale (LAPSS) are widely used by emergency medical services (EMS) to screen potential ischemic stroke patients. We performed a population based state-wide study to evaluate the accuracy of CPSS and LAPSS in identifying stroke cases and investigate their impact on ischemic stroke treatment.. Methods: A statewide EMS database was created by linking South Carolinas statewide Emergency Department (ED) and hospital discharge records for the calendar years 2010-2012. The EMS data were obtained from the Division of EMS and Trauma at Department of Health Environmental Control and linked to hospitalization records at Office of Research and Statistics. Results from the EMS use of CPSS and LAPSS were compared with hospital discharge diagnoses for stroke. For both scales, we calculated Sensitivity, Specificity, ...

This is an interim report of the project investigating the use of hospital in-patient care by married and non-married people. The project developed from the work of Dr. Morton Kramer during a sabbatical year at the London School of Hygiene in 1968 in which he drew attention to the large variations in hospital admission rates and lengths of stay between married and non-married patients. The proposal was subsequently made to the DHSS in 1972-3 that further investigation of this phenomenon should form part of the research programme of the Unit during that year. For the past 18 months the authors of this report have been reviewing the literature on the relationship between marital status, illness and the use of health services, and they have also carried out further extensive analyses of information COllected in the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry and Hospital Activity Analysis. The results of that work are presented in this report, which is ...
General objectives: The overall objective of HDP2 is to produce an internationally comparable hospital activity data set for Europe. Areas of comparability will be maximised by : 1. Using the OECD System of Health Accounts functional framework to define the activity to be included (and excluded) from the data set 2. Mapping the content of national activity data sets and basing data item definitions on what is commonly available. The feasibility of this approach was borne out in HDP1. HDP2 will extend the methodology 1. To new areas of hospital activity data 2. To new Members States 3. To new variables (e.g. to facilitate the monitoring of patient mobility, to facilitate subnational data anaysis). 4. Closely co-operate with other work being carried out in this area e.g. Eurostat development of minimum hospital data set, ECHI2, High Level Reflection Process on patient mobility.

There are few studies of atrial fibrillation (AF) outside of North America or Europe. The aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence, incidence, management and outcomes of patients with new atrial fibrillation, in a large contemporary cohort (2004-2012) of adult patients. The Clalit Health Services (CHS) computerized database of 2 420 000 adults, includes data of community clinic visits, hospital discharge records, medical diagnoses, medications, medical interventions, and laboratory test results. The prevalence of AF on January 1, 2004 was 71 644 (3%). Prevalence and incidence of AF increased with age and was higher in men versus women. During the study period (2004-2012) 98 811 patients developed new non-valvular AF (mean age -72, 50% women, 46% with cardiovascular disease, 6% with prior stroke). The rate of persistent warfarin use (dispensed for >3 months in a calendar year) was low (25.7%) and it increased with increasing stroke risk score. Individual Time in ...
Results-In 2005, 2197 cases of ischemic stroke among residents of the region were identified through hospital discharge records. Of the 2197 ischemic strokes, 114 (5.2%) occurred within 60 days of an antithrombotic medication withdrawal, 61 (53.5%) of these after stoppage of warfarin and the remainder after stoppage of an antiplatelet medication. Of the strokes after withdrawal, 71 (62.3%) were first-ever and 43 (37.7%) were recurrent; 54 (47.4%) occurred after withdrawal of medication by a physician in the periprocedural period.. ...
Photo via Samantha Cohen. As access to medical marijuana spreads throughout the country, scientists are discovering more and more medicinal uses for the once-demonized plant. A new study recently accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed Liver International journal may have found yet another potential benefit of cannabis. Researchers investigating the outcome of chronic alcohol and cannabis use on the liver made the surprising discovery that alcoholics who used cannabis daily had a lower risk of developing progressive stages of liver disease than those who didnt.. The research team analyzed hospital discharge records from the 2014 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project to study the prevalence of progressive liver disease in adults with a past or current history of alcohol abuse. After identifying more than 300,000 individuals who met their criteria, the researchers classified the subjects into three groups: non-cannabis users, non-dependent cannabis ...
We are designing an IoT-based smart home system for use by people with special needs and their support staff. People with special needs exhibit a broad range of diagnoses; their care involves a wider set of scenarios than for elder care, where aging progresses along well-understood trajectories. Our system is designed to use a variety of home sensors to derive activity of the people in the house. Identifying typical activity helps to maintain the records required for Medicaid and other agenices; identifying unusual behavior can help to spot issues quickly. Many activity analysis systems concentrate on relatively short-lived activities such as cooking a meal or exercising. Our algorithms, in contrast, are designed to identify activity at multiple time scales ranging from minutes (cooking a meal) to years (winter behavior may differ from summer behavior). Figure 1 shows our system block diagram. Sensors are ...
In this large cohort study of ,9,000 patients hospitalized with peptic ulcer complications, including 871 diabetic subjects, diabetes was associated with a 40-50% increase in short-term mortality for both peptic ulcer bleeding and perforation.. This study has several methodological strengths. Denmarks national health care system allowed a population-based design. Ascertainment of comorbidity and drug use through administrative registries reduced potential patient-related or investigator-related information bias. In addition, follow-up for mortality was complete.. Several limitations of this observational study also must be noted. Use of routine hospital discharge data could be associated with coding errors, leading to inclusion of some patients without ulcer bleeding or perforation. Still, the positive predictive value of recorded gastrointestinal site-specific discharge diagnoses has been reported to be high (16,17), and misclassification of ulcer ...

FRIDAY, March 8, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Communication between hospitals and home health care (HHC) is suboptimal, according to a study published online Feb. 21 in the Journal of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine.. Christine D. Jones, M.D., from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, and colleagues conducted a survey of 50 HHC nurses and staff (managers, administrators, or quality assurance clinicians) at 14 HHC agencies in Colorado (41 percent individual response rate). The authors sought to evaluate the quality of communication between hospitals and HHC clinicians and patient preparedness to receive HHC.. The researchers found that 60 percent of respondents reported receiving insufficient information to guide patient management in HHC and 44 percent reported encountering problems from inadequate patient information. The communication domain most frequently identified as insufficient was related to additional tests recommended by ...
The city will not disclose the medical records of patients who have received abortions at the hospital, nor will it disclose the names of physicians who have observed or performed abortions, City Attorney Dennis Herreras office said in a letter to the U.S. Justice Department. Wholesale disclosure of this information would result in the gross violation of our patients privacy rights, and the unjustifiable harassment of our physicians. The Acts constitutionality will ultimately turn on the testimony of medical experts, not on the anecdotal experiences of this or that physician, or this or that patient, said the letter by Deputy City Attorney Kathleen Morris. Despite Ashcrofts assurances that patients names would be protected, the demand for records has a potential chilling effect on the privacy of peoples medical information, Herrera said in an interview.
The plaintiff in any claim or lawsuit must prove that he or she has suffered from damages, either monetary or physical, due to the defendants actions. In order to file an actionable claim against altered medical records, the patient must suffer from some type of injury due to the changes made.. Improper medical treatment, treatments denied by insurance companies, extra costs for unnecessary treatments, and insurance claim denials are all actionable damages stemming from altered medical records. If changed records cause a patient to undergo harmful, improper, or unnecessary procedures, multiple malpractice claims related to one another can be simultaneously filed.. ...

Background: Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) are of the major reasons for death. Prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV) and delayed extubation are leading to the incidence of more seriously complications. The effect of hyperinflation has not been investigated in control of these complications in patients who have been weaned from mechanical ventilation and are undergoing T-tube support. Aim: Investigation of MHI effect on oxygenation of patients following abdominal surgery and T-tube support. Method: This clinical trial was performed on 40 patients undergoing abdominal surgery and T-tube support hospitalized in intensive care units of hospitals in Mashhad, Iran, in 2015-2016. The participants were divided randomly into two experimental and control groups. In the experimental group, MHI technique was performed using Mapleson circuit for three twenty-minute periods. The control group received routine hospital care. The two groups were compared for ...

May 26, 2015. We live in fear of superbugs: infectious bacteria that dont respond to treatment by antibiotics, and can turn a routine hospital stay into a nightmare. A 2015 Health Canada report estimates that superbugs have already cost Canadians $1 billion, and are a "serious and growing issue." Each year two million people in the U.S. contract antibiotic-resistant infections, and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result.. But tests for antibiotic resistance can take up to three days to come back from the lab, hindering doctors ability to treat bacterial infections quickly. Now PhD researcher Justin Besant and his team at the University of Toronto have designed a small and simple chip to test for antibiotic resistance in just one hour, giving doctors a shot at picking the most effective antibiotic to treat potentially deadly infections. Their work was published this week in the international journal Lab on a Chip.. Resistant bacteria arise in part because of imprecise use of ...
A Wall Street Journal opinion piece written by a former hedge fund operator singles out Epic as being primarily responsible for lack of EHR interoperability, calling the company "chief obfuscator." He notes a friends personal experience in trying and failing to have their hospital records sent from Boston to Miami, Epics non-participation in CommonWell, his claim that Epic charges four cents per message sent ("even Apple isnt that greedy," he says), and his own failure to retrieve his Epic hospital records in any form other than PDF. He concludes, "Make firms like Epic look at interoperability as an incremental profit center rather than an opening for competitors. The dream of smart machines crunching health info is real. Dont let the dream walk with paper." Everything seems simple when you dont understand them to any degree of detail, so my best and gentlest counterpoint would be this - have any Epic hospitals exchanged ...

Unfortunately ER doc85 you suffer from your own "selection bias". though I agree I see a smaller fraction of simple cellulitis that you do, You see probably only really know about 5% of all diagnosed MRSA patients in the hospital (and trust me they all dont come in with MRSA, we give it to them). Most are diagnosed AFTER being hospitalized. You know about the ones that tell you and the ones with hospital records. In short you dont really have a clue about the vast majority of MRSA patients. I am not blaming you on that one. There is no way to know until the cultures are back which you may (or may not) hear about. Think about it, suddenly with the diagnosis of MRSA on the floor (or c. diff) the gowns, gloves, masks magically appear. Whats the difference between that patient in the ER and the floor otherwise, really nothing besides the knowledge. The spread of MRSA and C-diff in hospitals is obviously been very well ...
Treatment planning always starts with completing a comprehensive assessment to develop as clear an understanding of your concerns as possible.

A review of prior medical records, including hospital records and neuropsychological tests, or other collateral information may be necessary. After the assessment is completed, we will consider evidence-based options for further studies (laboratory, radiological, etc) and for treatment. Treatment options may include any combination of psychotherapy, medications, and other recommendations to promote ...

As soon as they entered the salon, Hikaru felt his head began to gnaw in pain. Before, if this kind of situation appeared, he would have just ran away. But he was tired of running away, of doctors trying to tell him that he might have some psychological problems or something about go.. It was a mystery why his head would ache every time he got near a goban. The first time it happened, he was five years old when his parents brought him to his grandfathers house. His grandfather was a go enthusiast and tried to get him into the game. But when he saw the goban, his head began to ache, then he fainted. His parents never knew what caused it. His hospital records told them that his health was normal, so they thought he was just exhausted during the travel. But the sixth time it happened, his parents finally connected it with the goban. They concluded that he might have some sort of abnormal allergy towards go.. Years passed and at the age of 12, he grew up to be a mischievous kid. ...
