Incorporating quality of life data into managed care formulary decisions: a case study with salmeterol. (1/872)

Pharmacy and Therapeutics committees of managed care organizations have traditionally developed formularies by limiting the numbers and kinds of pharmaceuticals they purchase, with the goal of cutting costs. These attempts to manage pharmaceutical costs do not take into account the interrelationship of the costs of various components of care; thus, drug costs may decrease, but expenditures for utilization of other resources may increase. Cost-minimization and basic cost-effectiveness studies, on which many prior- authorization and formulary programs are based, only evaluate only the cost of the drug and its effectiveness. However, with the heightened competition in the healthcare market, emphasis is increasingly being laid on patient satisfaction and outcomes. Cost-utility analysis is a potentially superior pharmacoeconomic tool because it evaluate the effect of drug therapy on quality of life; however, data from such analyses are seldom readily available to the committees that evaluate a drug's potential effects on the entire healthcare system. The purpose of this review is to stress the importance of approaching formulary management from a wider perspective and to emphasize that the results of cost-utility studies should be proactively evaluated and incorporated into decisions regarding formularies. This is especially important for symptom-intensive diseases, such as asthma, in which the quality of life can be notably impaired. Cost-utility analyses should be conducted for all newer therapies, such as salmeterol, which are highly effective and which have a positive impact on quality of life, to determine the overall effect on the managed care plan's budget.  (+info)

A program to reduce discharge delays in a neonatal intensive care unit. (2/872)

Our hypothesis was that a program designed to identify the causes of discharge delays would reduce the length of stay in our neonatal intensive care unit. We reviewed every admission from January, 1994, to December, 1995. A discharge delay was defined as any delay not related to illness after the infant was cleared for release. Discharge delays were divided into the following categories: primary healthcare team, organizational, discharge planning, family, monitor related, and other. Potential discharge delays were identified daily according to established criteria. Actual discharge delays were reviewed monthly at a staff meeting attended by representatives of a multidisciplinary team. We identified 116 discharge delays, which accounted for 480 patient days. Eighty-three discharge delays accounted for 302 patient days in 1994, and 33 discharge delays for 178 patient days in 1995. Discharge delays ranged from 1 to 34 days, with an average of 4.1 days added per patient. Infants with discharge delays had a case mix index of 9.32. The average case mix index for the neonatal intensive care unit was 6.25 during 1994 and 5.18 during 1995, an average of 5.71 for the review period. Forty-four percent of infants who had discharge delays had private insurance, 55% had Medicaid, and 1% had self-payment arrangements. Eighty-eight of 116 discharge delays were caused by circumstances beyond the control of the primary care team. An additional 25 of 116 discharge delays were the result of our policy requiring 48 hours free of apnea-bradycardia alarms before discharge. Discharge delays for 1994 cost $226,298 ($749/day). For 1995, discharge delays cost $41,553 ($233/day) for a total cost of $262,431. Total savings in 1995 versus 1994 was $184,745 ($516/day). Despite the low birth weight and relatively severe illnesses of the infants, we believe that a focused team approach and monitoring for potential discharge delays can result in considerable reduction in hospital stay and cost.  (+info)

The development and implementation of normal vaginal delivery clinical pathways in a large multihospital health system. (3/872)

The entire country has become more concerned with healthcare costs due to managed care, capitation risk-based contracts, and the near elimination of the cost-plus reimbursement system. Clinical pathways have become one way to reduce unnecessary resource consumption by reducing provider variance, improving clinical outcomes, and reducing cost. We present here our rationale and process for developing a common clinical pathway for normal vaginal delivery in a large and varied multihospital system. We also discuss how this new pathway is expected to improve quality of care and reduce costs.  (+info)

Successful implementation of a comprehensive computer-based patient record system in Kaiser Permanente Northwest: strategy and experience. (4/872)

Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) has implemented a computer-based patient record (CPR) system for outpatients. Clinicians at KPNW use this comprehensive CPR to electronically document patient encounters; code diagnoses and procedures; maintain problem lists; order laboratory tests, radiology tests, and prescriptions; and send patient-specific messages and referrals to other medical providers. More than 700 clinicians, representing more than 20 medical and surgical specialties, and 2600 support staff in 31 geographically separate sites use this system as the information foundation of delivery and documentation of health care for KPNW's membership of 430,000. As of May 1998, more than four million visits and two million telephone calls had been processed and documented into the system. More than 5000 outpatient visits are processed and documented each weekday. From an integrated clinical workstation, clinicians also access e-mail, an extensive results-reporting system, and sites on both the internet and KPNW's intranet. This article describes a strategy for and experience with the implementation of a large-scale, comprehensive CPR in an integrated HMO. This information may be useful for persons attempting to implement CPRs in their own institutions.  (+info)

Support of quality and business goals by an ambulatory automated medical record system in Kaiser Permanente of Ohio. (6/872)

Kaiser Permanente of Ohio has developed a Medical Automated Record System (MARS) to address the business and clinical needs of the organization. The system is currently used by 220 physicians and 110 allied health personnel. To support the quality initiatives of the organization, the system has been programmed to generate reminders, at the moment of care, on compliance with clinical guidelines. This article details examples of compliance improvements with guidelines for the use of aspirin in coronary artery disease, use of influenza vaccinations in members older than 64 years of age, and stratification of asthmatic patients into severity levels; it also summarizes other quality improvements. MARS provides a data stream for electronic billing, which saves the organization the cost of manual billing. In addition, this system reduces operating costs, in particular the number of staff needed to deliver charts and the cost of printing forms. Cost-benefit analysis demonstrates that the system can produce savings in excess of maintenance costs.  (+info)

Enhancing health programme efficiency: a Cambodian case study. (7/872)

In 1995, the Cambodian Urban Health Care Association (CUHCA) was set up as facilitator between private health care providers and patients, guaranteeing good quality health care and fair pricing to patients and providing training and logistic support to providers. Providers were engaged on a fee-for-service basis and competition encouraged. CUHCA's objectives followed the same line of thought as the 1993 World Development Report, aiming at influencing the unregulated private health care market through competition mechanisms. But soon after the start of the project the basic problem was recognized to be not the absence of effective government regulation but rather that consumers lack the requisite knowledge to make good choices in the market for health services. CUHCA had not adequately addressed the demand for health services. The original supply-side strategy of improving health services by increasing competition was a failure. In order to improve CUHCA's health programme efficiency the association's objectives were subsequently redefined and its functioning reorganized. CUHCA now tries to educate consumers and provides good quality services so that consumers will be able to act on the basis of their newly acquired knowledge. CUHCA's health centres serve as model clinics for first-line health care. Community educators organize information, education and communication (IEC) activities. Staff help school teachers to improve formal health education in schools and CUHCA assists local leaders in sanitation development. Only full-time personnel are employed, encouraging team spirit and communication with the target population. Salaries are based on team performance. The CUHCA programme demonstrates that, depending on the market situation, health programme models need to address both the supply and the demand for services in order to be efficient. Where consumers lack essential knowledge to make appropriate choices in the health service market, interventions should focus on health education and social marketing and provide models of quality care catering to informed consumer choice.  (+info)

Determinants of patient choice of medical provider: a case study in rural China. (8/872)

This study examines the factors that influence patient choice of medical provider in the three-tier health care system in rural China: village health posts, township health centres, and county (and higher level) hospitals. The model is estimated using a multinomial logit approach applied to a sample of 1877 cases of outpatient treatment from a household survey in Shunyi county of Beijing in 1993. This represents the first effort to identify and quantify the impact of individual factors on patient choice of provider in China. The results show that relative to self-pay patients, Government and Labour Health Insurance beneficiaries are more likely to use county hospitals, while patients covered by the rural Cooperative Medical System (CMS) are more likely to use village-level facilities. In addition, high-income patients are more likely to visit county hospitals than low-income patients. The results also reveal that disease patterns have a significant impact on patient choice of provider, implying that the ongoing process of health transition will lead people to use the higher quality services offered at the county hospitals. We discuss the implications of the results for organizing health care finance and delivery in rural China to achieve efficiency and equity.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: The collaborative care planning study (COCAPP) is a cross-national comparative study of care planning and coordination in community mental healthcare settings. The context and delivery of mental health care is diverging between the countries of England and Wales whilst retaining points of common interest, hence providing a rich geographical comparison for research. Across England the key vehicle for the provision of recovery-focused, personalised, collaborative mental health care is the care programme approach (CPA). The CPA is a form of case management introduced in England in 1991, then revised in 2008. In Wales the CPA was introduced in 2003 but has now been superseded by The Mental Health (Care Co-ordination and Care and Treatment Planning) (CTP) Regulations (Mental Health Measure), a new statutory framework. In both countries, the CPA/CTP requires providers to: comprehensively assess health/social care needs and risks; develop a written care plan (which may incorporate risk ...

Let us first look at this situation from the point of view of the XYZ Corporation. Al House is certainly abusing XYZs generous policy concerning the borrowing of company tools. Assuming these tools could not be used for any company project but are rather used only for his personal ends, if confronted by an officer of the corporation such as the contract procurement agent, Al would have a great deal of difficulty in explaining his orders. We do not know how widespread in the corporation is the kind of abuse that Al engages in. Al himself seems to have little reluctance in allowing other people to know of his activities. Apparently Bob Deal, the contract salesman, knows about it. Als confronting the other engineers he works with suggests that they are also in a position to know about his activities. The chief engineer of the unit and the contract procurement agent, however, seem not to know. We do not know the dollar value of Als orders over the period of time, but we can assume that by now ...

My research program is concerned with understanding and improving nursing management practices and their impact on outcomes, with a particular interest in resident outcomes in nursing homes. I use complexity science, organizational and nursing theory to bring together the constructs of communication and decision processes, relationship and interaction, organizational structures, context, resource allocation and health care outcomes. In my previously NIH/NINR funded study, Outcomes of Nursing Management Practice in Nursing Homes, I worked with a multidisciplinary team to explore relationship patterns and management practices that enable nursing homes to attain high quality resident outcomes in a series of eight comparative case studies, identifying management practices that are distributed through all levels of workers and appear to build capacity for high quality outcomes. From these findings, we developed a new intervention for improving staff interactions and information exchange in long term ...

Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Background: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of total tau (t-tau) protein are thought to reflect the intensity of the neuronal damage in neurodegeneration, including Alzheimers disease (AD). The recent link of CSF t-tau to rapidly progressive AD raises the question among other AD clinical variants regarding CSF t-tau. We investigated the clinical phenotypes of AD patients with varying CSF t-tau levels. Objective: We tested the hypothesis that highly elevated CSF t-tau level would have a higher likelihood of presenting with atypical non-amnestic variants of AD. Methods: Retrospective comparative case study of 97 patients evaluated in a memory …clinic with clinical presentation and CSF biomarkers consistent with AD. We compared the age, sex, education, APOE ɛ 4 status, Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score, clinical phenotype, and MRI ...
This study will be conducted in Spain. This country has made remarkable advances in the development of policies against IPV since 1998. The Gender Based Violence Law, passed in 2004, represents a progressive and comprehensive development from the two previous action plans (for the 1998 to 2000 and the 2001 to 2004 periods, respectively) [21, 22]. On the basis of the law, an array of measures for integral protection against IPV have been implemented, including reforms of the judicial system, extensive training, and the implementation of a comprehensive network of services aimed to protect the rights and safety of women suffering from IPV. Preventive measures directed towards challenging gender inequality at the broader social level have also been established. Despite these noteworthy achievements, IPV remains common, and large differences exist between autonomous regions; e.g., the self-reported one-year-prevalence of IPV ranged from 28.6% in Ceuta and Melilla to 10.7% in Cantabria, Aragon and ...
There are so many evaluation tools to pick from and none are right for every job.. Everyone who runs a social service or a community program wants it to make a difference. We want recipients to be healthier, more successful at school or better clinicians. And unfortunately so often our programs do not work or work only with a small group of people led by someone deeply committed. The effects are not replicated when the first leader leaves and someone else runs the program or the program is offered in another town.. The other day a tweep alerted me to a terrific post that described all of the reasons why (non-experimental) evaluations of small-scale programs give misleadingly positive results that lull us into thinking that a program has worked.. The message is that if your evaluation doesnt have a control group, then you can rarely trust the results. It is hard to argue with that. These failings have been known for a long time and the solution is to have an experimental or at least a rigorous ...

Community paramedicine programs have emerged throughout North America and beyond in response to demographic changes and health system reform. Our aim was to identify and analyse how community paramedics create and maintain new role boundaries and identities in terms of flexibility and permeability and through this develop and frame a coherent community paramedicine model of care that distinguish the model from other innovations in paramedic service delivery. Using an observational ethnographic case study approach, we collected data through interviews, focus groups and field observations. We then applied a combination of thematic analysis techniques and boundary theory to develop a community paramedicine model of care. A model of care that distinguishes community paramedicine from other paramedic service innovations emerged that follows the mnemonic RESPIGHT: Response to emergencies; Engaging with communities; Situated practice; Primary health care; Integration with health, aged care and social services;
Purpose - Professionals in higher education are expected to be informed consumers of knowledge who seek out scholarship, critical evaluators of the applicability of extant knowledge, and contributors who build new knowledge for higher education practice. Despite the understood importance of developing research competencies, many have limited opportunities to develop these skills. This study aims to explore one way individuals develop research competencies: through participation in team-based research experiences. Design/methodology/approach - A longitudinal case study approach was used to investigate what participants in an education research group learn, and how their participation in the group changes the ways in which they think about themselves as researchers and scholars. Four group members participated in two focus group interviews (at the end of the fall 2015 and spring 2016 academic semesters). Interviews were analyzed using thematic analysis. Findings - Study participants report gaining

Case studies will include neglected disease targets and challenging kinase design problems.
Using a simple case study approach. this paper compares the conduct and performance of monetary policy in six Industrialized countries since the breakup of the Bretton Woods system. Our purpose is to develop fruitful hypotheses that might usefully be explored in subsequent, more formal research. From a positive perspective. a frequently observed pattern in the case studies is that central banks adopt money growth targets when inflation threatens to get out of control. Central banks appear to use money growth targets both as guideposts for assessing the stance of policy and as a means of signalling their intentions to the public; however. no central bank. adheres strictly to targets in the short run. More normatively. the case studies also suggest that money growth targets might be useful in providing a medium-term framework for monetary policy. if the targeting is done in a clear and straightforward manner and if targets can be adjusted for changes in the link between target and goal variables. ...
This study explores how trust is manifested and impacts on the levels of collaboration that take place in sport governance networks. A case study approach was used as the guiding method to examine the contributing factors that facilitate or inhibit trusting relationships between boards within sporting networks. Three sports from Australia were employed as the population for the study and 36 in-depth interviews were conducted with participants from national and state organizations operating within those networks, two federated and one partially unified. Interviews were analyzed using an interpretive process, and a thematic structure relating to the issues and impact of trust and distrust within the three networks was developed. Extant levels of trust, transparency, the capacity to build trust, and leadership emerged as the key themes in the study. The degree to which each of these dimensions was embedded in the cultures and processes of each network varied significantly. Leadership specifically, ...
The Nestlé Nutrition Institute11 also organised a workshop, which used a patient case study approach to illustrate the practicalities of integrating nutrition into geriatric care. Prof Frederico Cuesta Triana, geriatrician at Hospital Clinico San Carlo, Madrid (Spain), and Prof Stéphane M Schneider, Head of the Nutritional Support Unit in the Digestive Dept, Nice University Hospital (France), delivered a fully interactive session. The case showed the integration of nutrition screening and evidence-based decision making to determine the appropriate nutrition intervention. The participants knowledge of the ESPEN guidelines on enteral nutrition amongst older adults was tested alongside their awareness of the importance of protein and the effects of Vitamin D on the reduction of falls and fractures12. Data shows that a Vitamin D dose of ,400 IU/d results in a 20% risk reduction of non-vertebral fractures13 and 700 IU/d results in a 23% reduction in fall risk14. Also discussed was data from a 2009 ...

Like many of you, my year has begun with a full slate of ministry activities. It began January 3rd with a day and a half in the office to answer emails and plow through paperwork accumulated from the Christmas - New Year break time. The afternoon of January 4th I drove to Austin, Texas for the twice yearly South Central Bishops Conclave. The Conclave is a gathering of the active (i.e. residential or non-retired) bishops of the South Central Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church under the sponsorship of the Texas Methodist Foundation (TMF). It is an invaluable time of learning and sharing. Using the Harvard Business School case study approach, we wrestle together with leadership challenges facing us and the church as a whole in our work. Often we have a special presentation on a critical subject or issue facing the church. We engage in this time of significant learning and sharing under the guidance of Dr. Gil Rendle, Senior Consultant for TMF. His most recent article on Courage is a ...
I recently introduced an advanced statistical methods course into our curriculum with a two-tiered prerequisite system - students were required to have taken either an introductory statistics course or Calculus II. As a result, this course served as a first course in statistics for some quantitatively strong students and a follow-up course for others. I used a case study approach to introduce and motivate ideas to students new to statistics while engaging and challenging students for whom some ideas were review. Given constraints on resources which exist at smaller schools, a data-centered course such as this offered a good first experience in statistics for math students, one which piqued their interest and set a solid foundation for further study. In addition, the mixed audience led to an intellectually exciting class atmosphere for all students in the class. A quantitative assessment of students understanding of important statistical concepts is described to provide insight into whether or ...
The management team alone cannot make your business prosper. Youll need other individuals to join your management and help in the operations.. A great team will make it easy for you to make your business operational. However, this team comes with some cost to the company. Its upon you and the management team to ensure that the compensation packages are enough to keep them motivated.. Teamwork is an essential factor but only applies when there is a responsible team. Such a team should have competent skills that will aid in product and service improvement. The management team should lead by example in this case.. Your selection of the members to join your working team should be based on individual experiences as well as their adaptability to the business environment. You should, however, strive to balance experience and accountability.. A combination of an excellent working team and management will give your company a cutting-edge over your competitors.. ...
3. Invest to get the best quality human resources. Finding and retaining skilled workers is a major challenge for companies operating in Africa. Securing a supply of the best local people, recruiting in the diaspora, transferring skills from other parts of your company and working hard to retain key staff will be an essential element of success, notes E&Y.. 4. Expand from strategic economic hubs and think about non-conventional market groupings. Some African countries are much more developed than others when it comes to infrastructure, financial services and the availability of skilled labour. Investors should consider setting up their base in these countries for expansion into the rest of the continent.. Expansion plans should also look at non-conventional regional market groupings such as urban corridors, cultural affinities and regional economic communities in order to build critical mass and drive higher returns more quickly, says the report. ...
In your project, allocate time (and budget!) for research. I used to think that all activities should contribute directly and specifically to the end goal. I now tend more towards the view that you should plan for research. Of course the research should be targeted, but usually a project has a few subjects that will cause you and your team a headache. And generally you can name these areas in advance! Specific problems, let alone solutions, are unclear at the outset. In order to avoid problems down the line it is wise to start your project with research, proofs of concept, name it what you will, to clarify major stumbling blocks.. The most inspiring example of this approach I have been privy to, has been the implementation of Oracle Spatial at a Dutch government agency. A few years back they wanted to consolidate all geographical data from a dozen regional databases to one Oracle Spatial database, covering the Netherlands. This database was needed to allow the introduction of online services to ...
For consulting and IT services clients, we have seen a divergence of growth dependent upon specific industries served and types of practices or focus of boutique firms, he said. While the overall strategy, operations and IT implementation practices for larger consulting firms are experiencing a slowdown, those practices that address the healthcare, pharmaceutical, social media and technology spaces are growing especially in the digital transformation, risk management, IT security and M&A arenas.. Based upon those trends, Claymore Partners has modified its focus to concentrate on the rapidly growing fintech, payments, health insurance and PE backed firms as well as more specialized midsized consulting organizations.. We find that many larger organizations with internal talent acquisition teams are seeking to keep them occupied with the lower level of hiring so have reduced their use of third party executive search firms other than for very specialized executive searches, Mr. Landberg said. ...

The digital sharing economy is becoming more and more of a necessity as the increase in urbanization means a greater need for resources. The sharing economy has only recently began to gain a lot of attention with actors from Airbnb and Uber taking over headlines and spreading across the world, but little is known about what type of impacts this phenomenon will have on society. While from another view some areas have seemed to be almost static when it comes to the adoption of such platforms. This study aims at revealing the barriers involved towards a digital sharing economy and what pathways and opportunities exist to overcome them. The qualitative case study focuses on the city of Umeå, known to be high in technical competency and world leading broadband, having almost no activity in the digital sharing economy. The study goes on to present the barriers, pathways, and opportunities related to the sharing economy and how they apply to the city of Umeå. Additionally the research reveals the ...

Realist Evaluation (RE) identifies the causal mechanisms explaining the results of a given intervention in different contexts. Based on the evaluation of the implementation of a health policy in West Africa, this chapter illustrates the different stages of the RE cycle. In the first stage, the research question is formulated. The added value of the RE approach is optimal on questions such as « why, how, for whom, and in what contexts does an intervention work or not? ». The second step is the formulation of the initial program theory, which depends on the nature of the intervention being studied, the objectives, and the nature of the main outputs expected from the evaluation, the resources available and the evaluators familiarity with the object of evaluation The Data collection is method neutral and can be based on a particular form of qualitative interview called « realist interview ». In practice, data collection must adapt to key informants, their perceptions and expectations vis-à-vis ...

The skin functions as a physical barrier to microorganisms to fight against infection, prevent excessive loss of fluids, provide sensation input, and is a storage for fat and water for metabolism and thermoregulation of the body. 1 Resident immune cells that participate in immune processes are present in the epidermis and dermis (Langerhans cells and dermal dendritic cells). The nerve endings present in the skin allow the ability to feel pain, pressure, heat, and cold. The skin functions as a thermoregulatory of body temperature through vasoconstriction, vasodilation, and sweating, allowing excretion of waste products, electrolytes, and water. Synthesis of vitamin D in skin exposed to sunlight activates metabolism of calcium and phosphates, which are important to bone formation and hormonal production and synthesis. A disruption in the skin, either directly or indirectly, as a result of underlying disease process, reaction to that process or medication, can alter the overall health of the ...
Following activation by the tissue factor or contact activation pathways, the coagulation cascade is held in a pro-thrombotic state by the continued activation of factors VIII and IX to form the tenase complex. The tenase complex forms on a phospholipid surface in the presence of calcium and is responsible for the activation of factor X, which initiates the final common pathway. Cofactors To ensure that the coagulation cascade functions correctly, certain substances must be present in sufficient quantities. Increased fibrin specificity appears to play a significant role in differentiating between them. , 2006). Evidence suggests that tenecteplase restores patency to the artery more quickly and effectively than other fibrinolytic drugs (Potts, 2006). National guidelines recommend that eligible patients receive thrombolysis within 60 minutes of calling for help (call-to-needle time) and within 20 minutes of arriving in hospital (door-to-needle time) (DH, 2000).

Capacity building is often described as fundamental to the success of health alliances, yet there are few evaluations that provide alliances with clear guidance on the challenges related to capacity building. This article attempts to identify potential challenges of capacity building in multistakeholder health alliances. The study uses a multiple case study design to identify potential challenges and trade-offs associated with capacity building in four community health alliances in the United States. Multiple challenges were found to be common across the four alliances, including specifying appropriate governance structures and decision-making frameworks, aligning stakeholder interests with the vision of the alliance, balancing short-term objectives with long-term goals, and securing resources to sustain the effort without compromising it. These challenges often involved trade-offs and choices that alliances need to prepare for if they are to approach capacity building in a planful rather than a ...

Healthy Families NZ aims to improve peoples health where they live, learn, work and play, in order to prevent chronic disease - by making good food choices, being physically active, sustaining a healthy weight, being smokefree and reducing alcohol-related harm. The initiative brings community leadership together, and challenges communities to think differently about the underlying causes of poor health, and to make changes - in schools, workplaces, sports clubs, marae and other key community settings - that will help people make healthier choices. Anna Matheson, together with Mat Walton and evaluators from the SHORE/Whariki Research Centre, are collaborating to evaluate this complex initiative. The overall design of the evaluation is a comparative case study, which best suits that the initiative is being undertaken in 10 different geographic locations: East Cape, Far North, Invercargill City, Lower Hutt City, Rotorua District, Whanganui District, Manukau Ward, Manurewa-Papakura Ward, ...
Description: Scholars have often read the book of Revelation in a way that attempts to ascertain which Old Testament book it most resembles. Instead, we should read it as a combined and imitative text which actively engages the audience through signalling to multiple texts and multiple textual experiences: in short, it is an act of pastiche. Fletcher analyses the methods used to approach Revelations relationship with Old Testament texts and shows that, although there is literature on Revelations imitative and multi-vocal nature, these aspects of the text have not yet been explored in sufficient depth. Fletchers analysis also incorporates an examination of Greco-Roman imitation and combination before providing a better way to understand the nature of the book of Revelation, as pastiche. Fletcher builds her case on four comparative case studies and uses a test case to ascertain how completely they fit with this assessment. These insights are then used to clarify how reading Revelation as ...
Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) remains the most severely affected region by the HIV and AIDS pandemic, accounting for nearly 71% of the people living with HIV (PLWHA) worldwide [1]. In response to the hyper-epidemics in various countries in this region, and with support from major Global Health Initiatives, HIV treatment programmes-following evidence of the effectiveness of ART-were rapidly expanded from 2005 [2]. Currently, there is evidence that HIV treatment and care can be used to foster the test, treat, suppress, and prevent approach to controlling the HIV pandemic, an approach believed to potentially end AIDS by 2030.. Antiretroviral treatment (ART) is a holistic treatment approach, whereby taking antiretroviral drugs in compliance with the treatment protocol, eating healthy, and receiving psychosocial support and palliative care is provided as a package [3]. Patients who follow most or all the components of ART have shown improvement in their viral load readings (, 400 copies/mL), an ...
ABSTRACT. The relationship between information technology (IT) governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) and organisation business values continues to interest academics and practitioners (IT Governance Institute, 2003). Like governance, risk management and compliance generally, IT GRC is about the decision rights and accountabilities that encourage desirable behaviour in the use of IT (IT Governance Institute, 2003). A case study approach was used in an organisation with many business units. The organisation selected is a mining company, RioZim, situated in Zimbabwe. Data was collected from business units on IT issues and business values. The interviews centred on the IT GRC practices based on responsibility and authority for IT decision-making. The results suggest that IT GRC does not adequately support business values. The study revealed that business values should drive IT GRC and IT GRC should be the responsibility of executives and all business units.. JEL L20, L86. ...

One of these models was a community-based clinic-located practice, situated in a remote tourist destination where there is no resident general practitioner. Services were delivered by a NP to the local population as well as the many seasonal tourists passing through the region. These seasonal tourists included a growing number of older people, many of whom had chronic health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiac disease. METHODS:A case study approach was taken to test and develop connections between the theory of nursing ...
Using the Integrated Model of Response to Sport Injury as a theoretical framework, athletes psychological strengths and emotional responses were explored throughout the injury process using a case study approach. Four Division I athletes completed measures of mental toughness, hardiness, and optimism before their season (time 1), once they became injured (time 2), midway through rehabilitation (time 3), and when they were cleared to participate (time 4). Coping behavior, psychological response, and rehabilitation adherence were recorded at time 2-time 4, while recovering. In addition, interviews were conducted after time 4. Mental toughness, hardiness, and optimism varied over time and across cases, with broad individual differences in response to injury. Athletes experienced a loss of athletic identity combined with feelings of guilt and helplessness over the initial stages of injury, but positive experiences were also found. All cases also reported playing through injury. Understanding the ...

Senior health plan managers emphasized that the underlying quality of physician practice in the plans delivery system is an important factor contributing to the high performance accorded to the plan. There is no magic formula health plans can apply to providers to improve performance. The underlying reality that health plans can affect performance mostly at the margins, but nevertheless in meaningful ways, seems to have produced a more cautious attitude among these plans about the role of aggressive managed care. The health plans interviewed all indicated that they tended not to do as much policing of their network physicians as many of their health plan competitors, preferring to find opportunities to collaborate with their network physicians.. As long as employers remain primarily responsible for arranging the health insurance coverage their employees receive, the pressure for health plans to work with broader networks, rather than more effective select networks grounded in staff and ...
In an era of technology, an often-lost art in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy involves recognizing the importance of a hands-on approach to patient care. This workshop will use a case study approach within small group-dedicated workstations. The goal is to facilitate practical learning that will enhance the ability to extract clinical information regarding an accurate seizure and epilepsy diagnosis for the purposes of optimizing personalized treatment. Topics that will be addressed include EEG interpretation, video EEG monitoring, childhood epilepsy syndromes, seizure emergencies, and outpatient clinical medical and surgical decision-making that is designed to optimize quality care in epilepsy. An emphasis on clinical pearls gleaned from the history, physical examination, and diagnostic evaluation will provide the foundation for treatment selection. Faculty will emphasize skills pertaining to common errors, misinterpretation, gaps, and pitfalls using case studies, protocols that involve ...

This book contains a global comparative study of implementation and monitoring mechanisms for national disability strategies. It comprises a comparative study that was conducted at international, regional, and comparative country levels and that highlights critical success factors in implementing disability strategies or action plans worldwide. It explores emerging synergies between what is required to implement principles of international law contained in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and what it is possible to achieve through national policy and systems development. A number of critical success factors for implementing and monitoring strategies are identified, including leadership from government and civil society, participation of disabled people in implementation and monitoring, transparency and accountability in reporting on progress, independent monitoring and external review, and the ability to measure progress with indicators of disability equality. ...

This book chapter uses structuration theory and aims to study cross-sectoral collaborations for co-creating public value and their implications in terms of the role and the relationships of the public sector with the private and third sector.. Our research is exploratory and our main research question is: What are the modalities of structuration of cross-sectoral collaborations for co-creating public value? Our analysis is based on a multiple case study analyses conducted in the region of Trentino - South Tyrol (Italy), and it draws on primary and secondary data collected through six extensive semi-structured interviews and documentary analysis on about fifty organizations participating in six cross-sectoral collaborations. We found that the co-creation of public value led public organizations to structure cross-sectoral collaborations involving private and third-sector organizations, but preexistent structures of signification, domination, and legitimation hampered the public sector as a whole ...

The initial security theorem for QUAD is valid for the field GF(2) only, and recommended parameters does not achieve to get a contradiction with the proof of security. The authors of QUAD who gave the security theorem acknowledged that a break of QUAD at their suggested parameters does not contradict the proof-of-security theorems when they proposed the scheme at Eurocrypt 2006. However it seemed that the authors had considered them as sufficient to provide the desired security level of about 280.. Yang, Chen, Bernstein and Chen studied the security of the different parameter sets in the document Analysis of Quad and found some of them very insecure. Their paper discusses both theoretical and practical aspects of attacking QUAD and of attacking the underlying hard problem. For example, this paper shows how to use XL-Wiedemann to break the GF(256) instance QUAD (256, 20, 20) in approximately 266 Opteron cycles, and to break the underlying hard problem in approximately 245 cycles, which was ...

This IDC Survey Spotlight illustrates the perception of enterprise customers regarding hybrid clouds and interoperability in multicloud environments. The document contains data from IDCs CloudPulse Survey conducted in 1Q19. IDC conducted this survey of 2,211 IT decision makers to understand various aspects of enterprise cloud adoption. The overall goal of the survey was to identify how enterprises are using cloud computing, what their challenges and expectations are, and what critical success factors drive successful outcomes in the cloud journey.. As cloud adoption has accelerated, a vast majority of enterprises are embracing multicloud environments. However, many of them are unable to achieve meaningful interoperability between the clouds. The reasons boil down to cost as well as lack of expertise and tools. Enterprise customers are not too optimistic right now about being able to bring true hybrid cloud experience into fruition in the next two years. On the bright side, this creates a great ...

The rationalisation at the vehicle manufacturers level will consequently enable rationalisation of the component sector that will lead to greater scale, skills and improved quality. The end result will be a smaller number of vendors, all of whom will be operating at a scale, cost and quality level that will allow them to remain competitive and be able to export. 3. Promote strategic linkages with international partners Scale and focus are necessary to achieve greater competitiveness but in themselves, they are not sufficient. In addition, global best practices and industry linkage are other important key success factors for the automotive industry. Therefore, the Government will continue to encourage industry participants to collaborate with external parties to establish strategic tie-ups. Apart from sharing scale and resources, such strategic tie-ups open up opportunities and provide access for domestic industry participants to enter the global automotive supply chain and vice versa. Moreover, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Stages and determinants of e-government development. T2 - A twelve-year longitudinal study of global cities. AU - Ingrams, Alex. AU - Manoharan, Aroon AU - Schmidthuber, Lisa. AU - Holzer, Marc. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - Global e-government innovations are at the forefront of municipal efforts to be better organized and more efficient in delivering services and improving outcomes for the public. Scholars have argued that such innovations are embedded in institutional and environmental factors, and municipal e-government growth evolves through stages as a result of the effects of these factors. However, existing studies rarely model the distinct success factors of the different stages. This article addresses that shortcoming with data from the largest cities in the worlds top 100 most wired countries from 2003 to 2016. Cluster analysis addresses whether there are any consistent growth trends, and finds that there are four clusters of e-government development. Regression ...
