What health plans should know about clinical practice guidelines--round-table discussion. (1/211)

Quality is the watchword for health plans that wish to survive to see the new century, and accreditation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance is becoming quality's indispensable stamp. Practice guidelines are an imperative for that accreditation. Here's what seven managed care leaders had to say about guidelines in a recent round-table discussion.  (+info)

Organizational selection and assessment of women entering a surrogacy agreement in the UK. (2/211)

In the UK, surrogacy procedures are unregulated and not monitored. Information concerning the selection and assessment of intended (the mother commissioning) and surrogate mothers (the mother carrying and delivering the baby) is therefore not generally available (BMA, 1996). It is important to determine what type of assessment is used, and how selection takes place within the organizations dealing with surrogate motherhood arrangements. The present survey enquired about the incidence, selection and assessment procedures of all registered surrogate and commissioning couples, and aimed to find out what advice and support is given. Eight organizations took part in the survey, six were clinics and two agencies dealing with surrogate arrangements. Two voluntary organizations/helplines were also surveyed, but their data are not relevant to the results presented here. An interview and questionnaire approach was used. Psychosocial assessment was minimally addressed by all organizations, and no fixed procedures for assessment and selection were employed. Despite this, few incidences of controversial cases were reported. Confidence in this practice could be increased in the future if both parties embarking on a surrogacy arrangement knew they were properly selected and assessed. A regulatory body could monitor consistent use of professional evidence-based criteria prior to arrangements.  (+info)

Benchmarking organ procurement organizations: a national study. (3/211)

OBJECTIVE: An exploratory examination of the technical efficiency of organ procurement organizations (OPOs) relative to optimal patterns of production in the population of OPOs in the United States. DATA SOURCES: A composite data set with the OPO as the unit of analysis, constructed from a 1995 national survey of OPOs (n = 64), plus secondary data from the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations and the United Network for Organ Sharing. STUDY DESIGN: The study uses data envelopment analysis (DEA) to evaluate the technical efficiency of all OPOs. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Overall, six of the 22 larger OPOs (27 percent) are classified as inefficient, while 23 of the 42 smaller OPOs (55 percent) are classified as inefficient. Efficient OPOs recover significantly more kidneys and extrarenal organs; have higher operating expenses; and have more referrals, donors, extrarenal transplants, and kidney transplants. The quantities of hospital development personnel and other personnel, and formalization of hospital development activities in both small and large OPOs, do not significantly differ. CONCLUSIONS: Indications that larger OPOs are able to operate more efficiently relative to their peers suggest that smaller OPOs are more likely to benefit from technical assistance. More detailed information on the activities of OPO staff would help pinpoint activities that can increase OPO efficiency and referrals, and potentially improve outcomes for large numbers of patients awaiting transplants.  (+info)

Political analysis of health reform in the Dominican Republic. (4/211)

This article examines the major political challenges associated with the adoption of health reform proposals, through the experience of one country, the Dominican Republic. The article briefly presents the problems of the health sector in the Dominican Republic, and the health reform efforts that were initiated in 1995. The PolicyMaker method of applied political analysis is described, and the results of its application in the Dominican Republic are presented, including analysis of the policy content of the health reform, and assessment of five key groups of players (public sector, private sector, unions, political parties, and other non-governmental organizations). The PolicyMaker exercise was conducted in collaboration with the national Office of Technical Coordination (OCT) for health reform, and produced a set of 11 political strategies to promote the health reform effort in the Dominican Republic. These strategies were partially implemented by the OCT, but were insufficient to overcome political obstacles to the reform by late 1997. The conclusion presents six factors that affect the pace and political feasibility of health reform proposals, with examples from the case of the Dominican Republic.  (+info)

Dr Louis T. Wright and the NAACP: pioneers in hospital racial integration. (5/211)

Louis Tompkins Wright, the son of a man born into slavery, was an outstanding African American surgeon who devoted his life to the racial integration of health care in the United States. Despite the fact that both his father and stepfather were physicians, despite his innate intellectual gifts and disciplined character, Wright experienced discrimination throughout his life and career. This experience led him to fight for the rights of African Americans, both health care professionals and patients. In addition to making numerous contributions in the fields of surgery and infectious disease, Wright held leadership positions in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for more than 20 years, leaving a legacy of equity for African Americans in medical education and in health care.  (+info)

Public health aspects of the Rainbow Family of Living Light annual gathering--Allegheny National Forest, Pennsylvania, 1999. (6/211)

The Rainbow Family of Living Light (RFLL) is a loosely organized group that developed out of the late 1960s counterculture movement. RFLL has had a 2-week "Gathering for World Peace and the Healing of the Earth" in a different national forest each summer since 1972. For the June 21-July 10, 1999, gathering, RFLL selected the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The site was not accessible by vehicle and was an hour's walk to the nearest road. No sanitary facilities were available, and water from streams was consumed without treatment. Approximately 20,000 persons attended from the United States and several foreign countries. The state health department requested federal assistance to establish and maintain public health surveillance and to advise on outbreak prevention and control. This report describes the public health aspects of the gathering and presents recommendations for the management of health risks at large outdoor events.  (+info)

Patient safety: a call to action: a consensus statement from the National Quality Forum. (7/211)

OBJECTIVE: The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Presidential Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Healthcare Industry have both recently highlighted healthcare errors as a serious public health problem. An in-depth review of the issue was conducted by the National Quality Forum (NQF) in preparation for work the federal government has asked the NQF to do. PARTICIPANTS: The membership of the NQF includes a wide array of public and private health agencies, healthcare provider organizations, consumer groups, healthcare purchasers, and research and quality improvement organizations. EVIDENCE: Published literature, including more than 350 journal articles and over 30 books and monographs, were reviewed, and input was solicited from individuals and organizations known to be knowledgeable on the topic, including the Harvard University Executive Session on Medical Error, the VA National Patient Safety Center, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the National Patient Safety Foundation, and the IOM. The principal observations and findings were collated; 10 high-priority strategic areas needing action were identified; and specific recommendations for each area were crafted. CONSENSUS PROCESS: A draft statement was prepared and submitted to the NQF membership and Directors, as well as to external reviewers. The statement was revised following subsequent rounds of review and comment, after which it was approved by the NQF Board of Directors. CONCLUSIONS: There is an urgent need to reduce healthcare errors; however, numerous barriers impede progress in this regard, including widespread misunderstanding about why healthcare errors occur, the prevailing culture of "name and blame" surrounding these events, lack of user-friendly error-reporting mechanisms, and fear of litigation if errors are acknowledged and reported. To eliminate these barriers, and to begin to reduce healthcare errors, the NQF recommends that concerted action be taken in the 10 strategic areas identified here.  (+info)

Paying for reproductive health services in Bangladesh: intersections between cost, quality and culture. (8/211)

In 1997 a consortium of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Bangladesh began to implement health sector reform measures intended to expand access to and improve the quality of family planning and other basic health services. The new service delivery model entails higher costs for clients and requires that they take greater initiative. Clients have to travel further to get certain services, and they have to pay more for them than they did under the previous door-to-door family planning model. This paper is based on findings from a qualitative study looking at client and community reactions to the programme changes. It examines a number of barriers to access and constraints to cost recovery, including gender, class and ideas about entitlements, the role of government and obligations among people. The NGOs want to maximize cost recovery while making the basic services they offer accessible to most people. The findings suggest that this requires more than the establishment of an appropriate pricing structure. Attitudes related to charging and paying for services must also change, along with the institutional policies and practices that support them.  (+info)

North Chinas Shanxi province encourages non-governmental forces to take the lead in elderly care.services industry. The provincial government released measures on Oct 20 to promote elderly care services industry. According to the measures, the province will have over 1,500 elderly care organizations by 2020, and more than 70 percent of them would be non-governmental or operated by non-governmental organizations. As the aged population grows, the traditional model of elderly care cannot meet demand. Shanxi is exploring ways to stimulate non-governmental investment. The government will relax control of market entry and encourage and increase financial support for the non-governmental participation, with subsidies for construction and operation of non-governmental elderly care facilities. Provincial, municipal and county-level finances will pay the special fund of elderly care services, especially for the organizations for the disabled and extremely aged..

An estimated total of 60 million people have been infected with HIV since the first cases were reported in the early 1980s. Although the HIV/AIDS pandemic is a global crisis, certain regions have been affected more than others. The Eastern European and Central Asian region, in particular, has one of the fastest growing rates of HIV infections in the world. Most new HIV infections in this region have been occurring among injection drug users, commercial sex workers, and men who have sex with men, but the virus continues to increasingly affect the general population, too. HIV prevention interventions that are able to be disseminated to a large population are necessary. The Popular Opinion Leader (POL) intervention is an HIV prevention program that recruits and trains opinion leaders in the community to promote safe sex behaviors through risk-reduction conversations with peers. Administering the POL intervention to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) may be an effective means of assuring that the ...
The non-distribution constraint of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) would be harder, and financiers as well as recipients could expect more charitable output from them, if less efficient NGOs were squeezed out of international development cooperation. We employ Probit and complementary log-log estimations to analyze which factors determine the probability of market exit for almost 900 US based NGOs with overseas aid activities during the 1984-2003 period. Apart from their size and experience, we consider administrative overheads as an important aspect of NGO efficiency. We also account for other dimensions of NGO heterogeneity, including the importance of official refinancing. We find that larger administrative overheads increase the probability of exit for secular NGOs, though not for religious NGOs. Furthermore, we detect complex non-linear effects once the interactions between administrative overheads and official refinancing are taken into account.. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! We assess the determinants of the wide variation in the efficiency of foreign aid activities across US-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs). In particular, we analyze whether non-charitable expenditures for administration, management and fundraising depend on the intensity of competition among NGOs and on the degree to which they are refinanced by governments. We control for NGO heterogeneity in various dimensions as well as major characteristics of recipient countries. We find that fiercer competition is associated with more efficient foreign aid activities of NGOs, rather than leading to

Community health workers (CHWs) have been central to broadening access and coverage of preventative and curative health services worldwide for over 50 years [1, 2]. More recently, human resource limitations in the Millennium Development Goals era have spurred a renewed focus on task-shifting primary care responsibilities to lower-level health workers [3]. From volunteers to employees, their role varies between clinical providers and mediators of the health care system to agents of community empowerment. They are accountable to both the organizations and the communities they work in, with vastly different sets of obligations, expectations and recognition. This tension has been central to the longstanding debate about how best to incentivize and remunerate CHWs in order to motivate and support their work [4].. After decades of diverting CHW cadres as agents of vertical programmes, there is renewed interest in the core principle of Alma Ata of strengthening health systems as a whole [5-7]. The ...

The G7 is an informal, consensus-based global forum. It has a rotating presidency, no permanent secretariat or set agenda, and all members must work together to find common ground on commitments..

Downloadable! This paper proposes a method to calculate undistributed profits, thus saving rates of non-financial firms using only the information given in their balance sheets. This allows us to analyze the saving behavior of non-financial firms even in the absence of their statement of cash flows, which contains dividend payments data. The balance sheets of non-financial firms are provided by TurkStat only for 2013 and 2014, so this paper is confined to the cross sectional analysis of the saving behavior of non-financial firms in Turkey. We find that the saving rate increases as past net profit margin increases for firms with profits in the preceding year. For the firms which declare loss in the preceding year, saving rate increases as the past value of net profit margin decreases. Our findings for the rest of the firm-level determinants are consistent with the previous studies: Firm size plays a role on corporate savings; leverage ratio has a negative impact on the saving rate; and the positive
In the rapid scale-up of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) care and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) treatment, many donors have chosen to channel their funds to non-governmental organizations and other private partners rather than public sector systems. This approach has reinforced a private sector, vertical approach to addressing the HIV epidemic. As progress on stemming the epidemic has stalled in some areas, there is a growing recognition that overall health system strengthening, including health workforce development, will be essential to meet AIDS treatment goals. Mozambique has experienced an especially dramatic increase in disease-specific support over the last eight years. We explored the perspectives and experiences of key Mozambican public sector health managers who coordinate, implement, and manage the myriad donor-driven projects and agencies. Over a four-month period, we conducted 41 individual qualitative interviews with key Ministry workers at three levels in the Mozambique

Calvin Edwards of Calvin Edwards & Company, a philanthropic advisory firm, is helping lead the vetting process for SRGs Afghanistan fund. The vetting team has a combined 600 years of experience, Schultheis said. Edwards explained the vetting process, which began with over 50 organizations who provide services to Afghanis, have similar short and long-term priorities as SRG, and have a Great Commission focus.. After applying those criteria, about two-thirds of the organizations on the original list remained, Edwards told Ministry Watch. Intense research of about 24 factors into the organizations, their missions, budgets, history, programs, and core competencies is done. The vetting includes an interview with the ministrys leaders.. Edwards expects that SRG will eventually choose between eight and twelve groups to receive funding. A list of funded organizations may come as early as next week. According to Schultheis, SRG tends to work more often with smaller, indigenous ministries and churches ...

The project provided high-impact, high-quality primary health care services and increased the publics demand for these services in Bangladeshs rural and urban areas.
The private sector is playing an increasing role in the provision of Primary Health Care through both the for-profit and not-for-profit portions of the sector. In the post-1994 era, the relevance of this sector for the uninsured population has been markedly increased, due to corporate social investment and employee assistance programmes aimed at this population. A dramatic increase in donor-funded, health-related activities, in the HIV and AIDS and tuberculosis fields, has further expanded this sector's involvement in providing Primary Health Care services to a larger proportion of the population. However, this sector has a relative over concentration of skilled human resources, a situation that appears to be immune to all policy attempts to reverse it. Given this reality, serious consideration should be given to finding mechanisms to leverage these resources, so that they can provide services to the larger community. Government proposals, such as those for a social health insurance system, would
