Influence of an interventional program on resource use and cost in pediatric asthma. (1/125)

OBJECTIVE: Asthma is the most common chronic condition of childhood, for which morbidity, mortality, and cost are increasing. This study was performed to determine whether patient education and assignment to a primary care provider improve outcomes and cost in the management of pediatric asthma. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective pilot study of 61 patients was conducted with a retrospective review. Data were obtained from health and pharmacy records. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-one unassigned pediatric asthma patients who were noted to be frequent users of emergency department services and who had no primary care provider were identified. This cohort received asthma education and was assigned a provider trained in the national asthma guidelines. Hospital admissions, Emergency Department and clinic visits, use of beta 2 agonists and anti-inflammatory drugs, number of chest radiographs, and continuity of care were recorded for a mean of 58.1 months before and 11.2 months after the intervention. A cost analysis was done. RESULTS: All measured parameters showed favorable changes after intervention, with the decrease in the number of prescriptions of monthly inhaled anti-inflammatory drugs and chest radiographs ordered being statistically significant (P = 0.007 and P = 0.040, respectively). Monthly admissions, Emergency Department visits, and clinic visits declined after intervention when evaluated after 22.8 months of follow up. Annual resource savings after intervention was estimated to be $4845.29 per patient for this military hospital. CONCLUSIONS: A combined intervention consisting of provider and patient education and assignment to a primary care provider was associated with improved care and economic outcomes in this group.  (+info)

Technology assessment and requirements analysis: a process to facilitate decision making in picture archiving and communications system implementation. (2/125)

In a time of decreasing resources, managers need a tool to manage their resources effectively, support clinical requirements, and replace aging equipment in order to ensure adequate clinical care. To do this successfully, one must be able to perform technology assessment and capital equipment asset management. The lack of a commercial system that adequately performed technology needs assessment and addressed the unique needs of the military led to the development of an in-house Technology Assessment and Requirements Analysis (TARA) program. The TARA is a tool that provides an unbiased review of clinical operations and the resulting capital equipment requirements for military hospitals. The TARA report allows for the development of acquisition strategies for new equipment, enhances personnel management, and improves and streamlines clinical operations and processes.  (+info)

Parlaying digital imaging and communications in medicine and open architecture to our advantage: the new Department of Defense picture archiving and communications system. (3/125)

The Department of Defense (DoD) undertook a major systems specification, acquisition, and implementation project of multivendor picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and teleradiology systems during 1997 with deployment of the first systems in 1998. These systems differ from their DoD predecessor system in being multivendor in origin, specifying adherence to the developing Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) 3.0 standard and all of its service classes, emphasizing open architecture, using personal computer (PC) and web-based image viewing access, having radiologic telepresence over large geographic areas as a primary focus of implementation, and requiring bidirectional interfacing with the DoD hospital information system (HIS). The benefits and advantages to the military health-care system accrue through the enabling of a seamless implementation of a virtual radiology operational environment throughout this vast healthcare organization providing efficient general and subspecialty radiologic interpretive and consultative services for our medical beneficiaries to any healthcare provider, anywhere and at any time of the night or day.  (+info)

Clinical services assessment and reengineering: lessons learned. (4/125)

Healthcare enterprises often "acquire and install" picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) without examining many of the care delivery processes and information flows that will be affected. Many times these unexamined factors can delay or be the cause of failure of the PACS project. This article presents issues that were worked through as part of a PACS clinical services assessment and reengineering analysis for several US military medical treatment facilities.  (+info)

Benchmark testing the Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System proposal of the Department of Defense. (5/125)

The Department of Defense issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for its next generation Picture Archiving and Communications System in January of 1997. The RFP was titled Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS). Benchmark testing of the proposed vendors' systems occurred during the summer of 1997. This article highlights the methods for test material and test system organization, the major areas tested, and conduct of actual testing. Department of Defense and contract personnel wrote test procedures for benchmark testing based on the important features of the DIN-PACS Request for Proposal. Identical testing was performed with each vendor's system. The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard images used for the Benchmark Testing included all modalities. The images were verified as being DICOM standard compliant by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Electronic Radiology Laboratory. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory prepared the Unix-based server for the DICOM images and operated it during testing. The server was loaded with the images and shipped to each vendor's facility for on-site testing. The Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia (DSCP), the Department of Defense agency managing the DIN-PACS contract, provided representatives at each vendor site to ensure all tests were performed equitably and without bias. Each vendor's system was evaluated in the following nine major areas: DICOM Compliance; System Storage and Archive of Images; Network Performance; Workstation Performance; Radiology Information System Performance; Composite Health Care System/Health Level 7 communications standard Interface Performance; Teleradiology Performance; Quality Control; and Failover Functionality. These major sections were subdivided into workable test procedures and were then scored. A combined score for each section was compiled from this data. The names of the involved vendors and the scoring for each is contract sensitive and therefore can not be discussed. All of the vendors that underwent the benchmark testing did well. There was no one vendor that was markedly superior or inferior. There was a typical bell shaped curve of abilities. Each vendor had their own strong points and weaknesses. A standardized benchmark protocol and testing system for PACS architectures would be of great value to all agencies planning to purchase a PACS. This added information would assure the purchased system meets the needed functional requirements as outlined by the purchasers PACS Request for Proposal.  (+info)

Do aftercare services reduce inpatient psychiatric readmissions? (6/125)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether aftercare services reduce the likelihood that children and adolescents will be readmitted to inpatient psychiatric facilities. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Analyses of data from the Fort Bragg Demonstration. Data were based on 204 sample individuals (children and adolescents), all of whom were discharged from inpatient facilities during the study period. STUDY DESIGN: These analyses use hazard modeling to examine the impact of aftercare services on the likelihood of readmission. Comparisons of individuals for whom the timing of aftercare services differ are adjusted for a wide range of individual characteristics, including client demographics, diagnosis, symptomatology, and psychosocial functioning. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Detailed data on psychopathology, symptomatology, and psychosocial functioning were collected on individuals included in these analyses. This information was taken from structured diagnostic interviews and behavior checklists, including the Child Behavior Checklist and Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children, completed by the child and his or her caretaker. Information on the use of mental health services was taken from insurance claims and a management information system, and was used to identify the period from discharge to readmission and to describe the client's use of outpatient therapy, case management, intermediate (or stepdown) services, and residential treatment centers during this period. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS/CONCLUSIONS: Using Cox models that allow for censoring and that include the use of aftercare services as time-varying covariates, we find that aftercare services generally do not influence the likelihood of inpatient readmission. For the lower middle class families included in this study, the estimated effect of aftercare is not statistically significant and has limited practical significance. When we look at specific forms of aftercare, we find that outpatient therapy has the largest effect and that stepdown services in intermediate settings have the smallest. We also identify family and individual characteristics that influence the likelihood of readmission.  (+info)

Picture archiving and communication systems planning: a methodology. (7/125)

This article presents the Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) planning methodology used by the Department of Defense's (DOD) Joint Imaging Technology Project Office (JITPO). This methodology evaluates four areas of PACS planning and implementation: strategic planning, clinical scenario planning, installation planning, and implementation planning. The first task is to develop a PACS team, from the local facility, that will execute the program. A written PACS plan is developed by the JITPO, with active input and final say from the site's PACS team. This plan includes the PACS goals and objectives, clinical requirements, facility requirements, and the status of the implementation. This methodology, when applied fully at a military clinical site, has resulted in the site obtaining best "value" in terms of cost and performance by requiring the DOD's contracted PACS vendors to propose a PACS package that meets or exceeds the site's unique requirements. The identification of the requirements and the matching of a known PACS configuration with them has reduced the number of unknowns within the vendors' proposals and created true competition in both initial cost and the cost to maintain PACS in the maintenance years.

1999 marks the centenary of the two major British Schools of Tropical Medicine, founded in London and Liverpool, respectively. The origin(s) of the former clearly lies in the Seamen's Hospital Society, which dates from 1821. It seems likely that the foundation of this school (with Government support) also acted as a catalyst for the school at Liverpool, which in fact opened its doors a few months before that in London.  (+info)

Military hospitals and clinics are the core of the Military Health System. They are located on military bases and posts around the world. Military hospitals and clinics are also referred to as direct care, military treatment facilities or MTFs.
This would reverse the current policy that military women can have abortions at these hospitals except for the instances of rape or incest. Slaughter spoke with Diana Reese of the Washington Post. Thats absolutely wrong, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) told me in a phone interview Monday. She introduced legislation Thursday that would change that. The Military Access to Reproductive Care and Health (MARCH) for Military Women Act would lift the ban on abortions at military hospitals for service women.. Rep. Louise Slaughter supports lifting the ban on privately funded abortions for service women at overseas military hospitals.. No taxpayer dollars would be spent, she assured me. The service woman would be required to pay for the abortion. And the conscience clause would remain in effect so that any military physician who did not want to perform the procedure would not be required to do so.. If passed by Congress, MARCH would lift the statutory ban that dates back to a time when men believed ...
Back in June, there was an unnerving report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that NDM-1, the Indian supergene that renders common hospital-acquired infections practically untreatable, had been found in the military hospital at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.. The gene was being carried by a gut bacterium, Providencia stuartii, that was causing septicemia in an Afghan national who had been taken in by the military hospital. The particular strain of NDM-1 could be treated only by a single drug, aztreonam; it was resistant to everything else. Unsurprisingly, the victim died.. Though it wasnt explicitly stated, the subtext of the CDCs brief bulletin was clear: By extending compassion to the local resident (who was badly burned and had been treated at a hospital in Kabul), the military staff had brought into their hospital a highly resistant organism that could endanger their troops. It made me wonder, at the time, how often this happened, and what the consequences might be. ...

Cotte J, dAranda E, Chauvin V, Kaiser E, Meaudre E 13(4). 59 - 62 (Journal Article). Background and Objective: Almost 50% of military trauma patients who need transfusions develop a coagulopathy. Immediately treating this coagulopathy improves the patients prognosis. Field military hospitals often lack laboratory devices needed to diagnose a clinically significant coagulopathy and have limited blood product resources such as plasma. Point-of-care (POC) devices for the measurement of prothrombin time (PT) are available and have been tested in a variety of situations, including hemorrhagic surgery. The authors compared a POC device, the Coaguchek XS Pro (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., Basel, Switzerland), with laboratory measures for determining the PT in military trauma patients in a field hospital. Methods: This single-center prospective study was designed to compare POC coagulation monitoring with traditional laboratory testing. It was conducted at the French military hospital located at Kabul ...
The hospital is a 176-bed facility, providing general medical and surgical care as well as a 24-hour emergency service for military personnel as well as for civilians. About 25% of the patients being treated at the hospital at any one time are civilians.[3] It also functions as a teaching hospital for the Tbilisi State Medical University.[1]. The ability of the hospital to respond to mass casualty events was put to test during the August 2008 war with Russia. Beyond the Georgian military personnel, most of the civilians injured in or around Gori were initially taken to the Gori hospital for treatment. On 13 August 2008, at around 2:00 a.m. local time, a rocket fired from a Russian military helicopter hit a group of medical staff members in the hospital yard, killing an emergency room physician, Giorgi Abramishvili, who had spent the previous four days operating on people wounded during the hostilities. The Human Rights Watch concluded that attack on the hospital, which was clearly marked with a ...

11:40 A.M. - U.S. Army PFC Michael Araujo is thankful to be alive this Thanksgiving. The 19-year-old Mariner High graduate and Cape Coral resident also appreciates the prayers and monetary donations he and his family received from folks in Southwest Florida.

I would like to respond to the feature Paradise lost: Neglected school stands at brink of change (Washington Weekend magazine, Oct. 26), which was about the National Park Seminary Historic District that is part of the Forest Glen Annex at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Silver Spring. Your reporter requested that Walter Reeds Public Affairs office help in getting some of the information for this article. We provided copies of most of our historic files on the seminary property and answered the two questions asked the current status of the property and how the Army got the property during World War II. Unfortunately, neither answer was used in the article. Therefore, I would like to clarify two important things about the seminary property: How the Army acquired the property during the war and the current status of the property. The article says the Army took over the school and auctioned off most of the furnishings, including 400 Chippendale chairs. This implied the Army came in and took ...

Walter Reed Army Medical Centre (WRAMC) has a long and proud history of helping soldiers in need. It was something that I never thought of…. my journey to these hallowed halls. One year and 4 months ago while driving Diplomat Glyn Berry in a four-vehicle convoy in Kandahar Afghanistan. I want to say that it was a dry and dusty day but in fact it was one of those few days that were cloudy and rainy. The convoy approached the entrance into the now booming metropolis of Kanadahar and a suicide bomber hits my vehicle…. even though I was driving fast (68 km/hr). The principle I was to protect dies instantly Jeff Bailey suffers brain damage, Will Salikin is inside the vehicle and all the contents land on him, body parts, unexploded grenades broken rockets, unfired bullets. I was thrown out into the streets tossed on the ground helmet scraped and then thrown against a wall. Face and hair burning I toss the helmet and curse the world. My left leg is ripped off and my right leg destroyed. I stop the ...

Chapdelaine said the Joint Task Force has been building the integrated delivery system over the last few years. But now with the closing of Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the opening of the new medical center at Ft. Belvoir, doctors and nurses are using the network to share information.

He said JTF is focusing on over the next six months is to complete the integrated network by bringing the Navy network at Bethesda Naval Medical Center and reduce duplicative software such as scheduling applications. The first one at Ft. Belvoir was completely new, he said. The one here at Bethesda we are going to do a transitioned process by which we stand up certain components of the joint medical network and migrate that into the Navy network and then over time, in order to avoid as much mission impact ...

This NY Times article tells the fascinating story about the assassination of President James A Garfield in 1881 an exhibit commemorating the 125th anniversary of Garfields assassination at the National Museum of Health and Medicine at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.. President Garfield was shot in Washington by a disgruntled federal job-seeker, Charles J. Guiteau, who made his move while Garfield was waiting for a train. What is not as well-known is that neither of the shots that hit Garfield should have fatal even by the more primitive medical standards of the 1880s.. As my late father once observed to me in a discussion of Presidential assassinations, Garfields assassin just shot him. Garfields doctors killed him.. The Times article reminds me of another interesting medical case that Dr. Donald J. DiPette, chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at Texas A&M University Medical School, presented earlier this year during the annual Walter M. Kirkendall Lecture that the University of ...
As a young child in the 1950s, Dr. Limone Collins remembers distinctly his mother taking him by the hand to the local school to get a sugar cube covered with the polio vaccine.. My mother thought she was doing the greatest thing, because they recently had a president [Roosevelt] who had polio. So it was a real thing to them, said the retired Army colonel and career pediatrics doctor. It didnt take a whole lot to convince her to get her child vaccinated.. Getting necessary vaccinations now is as much a rite of going back to school as picking up pencils and paper for the first day. Collins has seen every level of the vaccination cycle: from being a child getting his own immunizations, to being a pediatrician, to now chief of vaccine safety and evaluation for the Immunization Healthcare Branch with the Defense Health Agency. For example, while training as a military doctor in the late 1970s at the old Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., he saw firsthand how devastating ...

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) ― Army investigators at Fort Detrick recommended on Tueday that some laboratory safety procedures be reviewed after finding lapses in the case of a biodefense worker who became infected with tularemia, a potentially fatal respiratory disease.The woman survived the infection after a brief hospitalization at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in December.In an executive summary of an internal investigation, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases said the unidentified woman probably inhaled the bacteria between Nov. 13 and Nov. 17.Although there was no significant event investigators could point to, such as a spill or dropped flask, they cited several lapses in proper laboratory techniques that, taken together, may have increased her risk of exposure.The report said potentially contaminated waste wasnt placed in a cabinet designed to contain bacteria. Instead, it was deposited in a waste container inside the sealed laboratory suite.Even though she ...

On Tuesday, most of the Mets visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center (why wounded vets would want to see any Mets, when theyve already suffered so much, is beyond me). Four Mets were absent. Dillon Gee, making his first major league start that evening, was not expected to show. The other three were expected, however, though the visit was not mandatory. (Apparently it was not mandatory the way that NFL spring workouts are not mandatory.). One of the missing was Oliver Perez, thief impersonating a major league pitcher, who declined to explain why he didnt show. Another was Luis Castillo, who said hed be too traumatized by the sight of wounded soldiers. (Its no picnic for the soldiers either, Louie.). The third was Carlos Beltran. He didnt go because he had a meeting with his own charitable foundation which, among other endeavors, is currently building a school in his native Puerto Rico. He also told reporters that hed visited VA hospitals in the off-season. He expressed some regret ...

A scandal involving Medtronic Inc.s Infuse Bone Graft has erupted in the U.S. Army. According to The Wall Street Journal, a number of serious questions have been raised about an Infuse study conducted by Dr. Timothy R. Kuklo, former surgeon at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.. Infuse Bone Graft contains recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein (rhBMP-2), a protein released naturally by the body. It is approved to treat a spinal condition called Degenerative Disc Disease, as well as open fractures of the tibia. It is also approved for use in two dental bone grafting procedures: sinus augmentation and localized alveolar ridge augmentation. In July, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that the use of Infuse Bone Graft and similar products had caused serious problems when they were used off-label in cervical spine (neck) surgeries. Patients reported difficulty swallowing, breathing and ...

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Dont freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen ...
