Lobbying and advocacy for the public's health: what are the limits for nonprofit organizations? (1/128)

Nonprofit organizations play an important role in advocating for the public's health in the United States. This article describes the rules under US law for lobbying by nonprofit organizations. The 2 most common kinds of non-profits working to improve the public's health are "public charities" and "social welfare organizations." Although social welfare organizations may engage in relatively unlimited lobbying, public charities may not engage in "substantial" lobbying. Lobbying is divided into 2 main categories. Direct lobbying refers to communications with law-makers that take a position on specific legislation, and grassroots lobbying includes attempts to persuade members of the general public to take action regarding legislation. Even public charities may engage in some direct lobbying and a smaller amount of grassroots lobbying. Much public health advocacy, however, is not lobbying, since there are several important exceptions to the lobbying rules. These exceptions include "non-partisan analysis, study, or research" and discussions of broad social problems. Lobbying with federal or earmarked foundation funds is generally prohibited.  (+info)

Who is enrolled in for-profit vs. nonprofit Medicare HMOs? (2/128)

We compare the characteristics of enrollees in for-profit and nonprofit Medicare health plans using nationwide data from the 1996 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey. We find few differences in overall health status, limitations in activities of daily living (ADLs), or history of chronic disease. However, older Americans enrolled in for-profit plans are substantially poorer and less educated than those enrolled in nonprofit plans, are more likely to have joined their plan recently, and are more likely to have joined a plan with the expectation of reducing their out-of-pocket health care costs.  (+info)

HIV as a chronic disease: implications for long-term care at an AIDS-dedicated skilled nursing facility. (3/128)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics and outcomes of the first 3 years of admissions to a dedicated skilled nursing facility for people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). METHODS: Systematic chart review of consecutive admissions to a 30-bed, AIDS-designated long-term care facility in New Haven, Connecticut, from October 1995 through December 1998. RESULTS: The facility has remained filled to 90% or more of its bed capacity since opening. Of 180 patients (representing 222 admissions), 69% were male; mean age was 41 years; 57% were injection drug users; 71% were admitted directly from a hospital. Leading reasons for admission were (1) the need for 24-hour nursing/medical supervision, (2) completion of acute medical treatment, and (3) terminal care. On admission, the median Karnofsky score was 40, and median CD4+ cell count was 24/mm3; 48% were diagnosed with serious neurologic disease, 44% with psychiatric illness; patients were receiving a median of 11 medications on admission. Of 202 completed admissions, 44% of patients died, 48% were discharged to the community, 8% were discharged to a hospital. Median length of stay was 59 days (range 1 to 1,353). Early (< or = 6 months) mortality was predicted by lower admission CD4+ count, impairments in activities of daily living, and the absence of a psychiatric history; long-term stay (> 6 months) was predicted by total number of admission medications, neurologic disease, and dementia. Comparison of admissions from 1995 to 1996 to those in 1997 to 1998 indicated significantly decreased mortality rates and increased prevalence of psychiatric illness between the two periods (P < .01). CONCLUSIONS: A dedicated skilled nursing facility for people with AIDS can fill an important service need for patients with advanced disease, acute convalescence, long-term care, and terminal care. The need for long-term care may continue to grow for patients who do not respond fully to current antiretroviral therapies and/or have significant neuropsychiatric comorbidities. This level of care may be increasingly important not only in reducing lengths of stay in the hospital, but also as a bridge to community-based residential options in the emerging chronic disease phase of the AIDS epidemic.  (+info)

A participatory approach to sanitation: experience of Bangladeshi NGOs. (4/128)

This study assesses the role of participatory development programmes in improving sanitation in rural Bangladesh. Data for this study came from a health surveillance system of BRAC covering 70 villages in 10 regions of the country. In-depth interviews were conducted with one adult member of a total of 1556 randomly selected households that provided basic socioeconomic information on the households and their involvement with NGO-led development programmes in the community. The findings reveal that households involved with credit programmes were more likely to use safe latrines than others who were equally poor but not involved in such programmes. The study indicates that an unmet need to build or buy safe and hygienic latrines existed among those who did not own one. Such latent need could be raised further if health education at the grassroots level along with supervised credit supports were provided to them. Unlike conventional belief, the concept of community-managed jointly owned latrines did not seem a very attractive alternative. The study argues that social and behavioural aspects of the participatory development programmes can significantly improve environmental sanitation in a traditional community.  (+info)

Accrediting organizations and quality improvement. (5/128)

This paper reviews the various organizations in the United States that perform accreditation and establish standards for healthcare delivery. These agencies include the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the American Medical Accreditation Program (AMAP), the American Accreditation HealthCare Commission/Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (AAHC/URAC), and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory HealthCare (AAAHC). In addition, the Foundation for Accountability (FACCT) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) play important roles in ensuring the quality of healthcare. Each of the accrediting bodies is unique in terms of their mission, activities, compositions of their boards, and organizational histories, and each develops their own accreditation process and programs and sets their own accreditation standards. For this reason, certain accrediting organizations are better suited than others to perform accreditation for a specific area in the healthcare delivery system. The trend toward outcomes research is noted as a clear shift from the structural and process measures historically used by accrediting agencies. Accreditation has been generally viewed as a desirable process to establish standards and work toward achieving higher quality care, but it is not without limitations. Whether accrediting organizations are truly ensuring high quality healthcare across the United States is a question that remains to be answered.  (+info)

For-profit and not-for-profit health plans participating in Medicaid. (6/128)

The proliferation of for-profit health plans has heightened concerns about quality of care, particularly with respect to Medicaid. We undertook this study to compare for-profit and not-for-profit health plans that participate in Medicaid, examining processes of care and the organizational characteristics related to utilization management, financial incentives, and quality of care. Our findings demonstrate that for-profit and not-for-profit plans appear to be more similar than dissimilar in many areas of management, although for-profit plans are more likely to use aggressive utilization review and have slightly less developed quality management systems. On balance, these findings should reassure critics of for-profit health care.  (+info)

Complementary and alternative medicine use among health plan members. A cross-sectional survey. (7/128)

CONTEXT. Many health plans have started to cover the cost of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). National survey data indicate that CAM use is highly prevalent among adults. However, little is known about CAM use among health plan members. OBJECTIVE: To describe CAM users, the prevalence of CAM use, and how CAM use relates to utilization of conventional preventive services and health care satisfaction among health plan members. DESIGN: Cross-sectional mail survey in 1997. SETTING: Managed care organization in Minnesota. SAMPLE: Random sample of health plan members aged 40 and older stratified by number of chronic diseases; 4404 (86%) of the 5107 returned completed questionnaires. MEASURES: Use of CAM, patient characteristics (e.g., chronic diseases, health status), health behaviors (e.g., smoking, diet, exercise), and interaction with conventional health care (e.g., use of preventive services, having a primary care doctor, health care satisfaction). RESULTS: Overall, 42% reported the use of at least one CAM therapy; the most common were relaxation techniques (18%), massage (12%), herbal medicine (10%), and megavitamin therapy (9%). Perceived efficacy of CAM ranged from 76% (hypnosis) to 98% (energy healing). CAM users tended to be female, younger, better educated, and employed. Users of CAM reported more physical and emotional limitations, more pain, and more dysthymia but were not more likely to have a chronic condition. CAM users were slightly more likely to have a primary care provider (86% vs. 82% had chosen a primary care provider; P =0.014) and had more favorable health-related behaviors. CAM users and nonusers were equally likely to use conventional preventive services and were equally satisfied with their health plan. CONCLUSION: CAM use is highly prevalent among health plan members. CAM users report more physical and emotional limitations than do nonusers. CAM does not seem to be a substitute for conventional preventive health care.  (+info)

Competitive behavior in the HMO marketplace. (8/128)

Are health maintenance organizations (HMOs) less profitable in more competitive markets, and does competition erode unusually high profits over time? To answer these questions, we examined profit rates (as a proportion of revenues) in 1994 and 1997 for all HMOs in 259 metropolitan areas. We found that profits were significantly lower on average in 1994 in markets with more competition, measured alternatively by the number of HMOs or their market concentration. We also found that there was no relationship between a market's relative profit ranking in 1994 and its ranking in 1997; highly profitable markets were not able to preserve their relative standing. Neither the proportion of HMO enrollees in for-profit HMOs nor HMO market penetration was significantly related to profit rates.  (+info)

From November 2007 to January 2008, a total of 1,002 adult San Diego County residents responded to a survey designed to assess their confidence in the ability of local nonprofit organizations to provide quality services on the publics behalf and to spend money wisely. At the beginning of this survey, participants were given an identification test to determine their awareness of nonprofit organizations. Additionally, respondents were asked several questions related to their confidence in San Diego County nonprofit sub-sectors (i.e., arts, human services, environment, etc.), as well as their involvement in the local nonprofit sector through giving and volunteerism. When comparing the nonprofit, for-profit, and government sectors, San Diegans had the most confidence in nonprofits to provide quality services, spend money wisely, and represent the publics interest. Other key findings in this report include the following: - Seventy-five percent of respondents expressed either a great deal or a fair
In the United States, nonprofit organizations are formed by filing bylaws or articles of incorporation or both in the state in which they expect to operate. The act of incorporation creates a legal entity enabling the organization to be treated as a distinct body (corporation) by law and to enter into business dealings, form contracts, and own property as individuals or for-profit corporations can. Nonprofits can have members, but many do not. The nonprofit may also be a trust or association of members. The organization may be controlled by its members who elect the board of directors, board of governors or board of trustees. A nonprofit may have a delegate structure to allow for the representation of groups or corporations as members. Alternatively, it may be a non-membership organization and the board of directors may elect its own successors. The two major types of nonprofit organization are membership and board-only. A membership organization elects the board and has regular meetings and the ...

Child and family nonprofit organizations are essential for the implementation of United States public policy in their role as service providers. Human service nonprofit organizations held approximately 20,000 government contracts, totaling more than $100 billion in 2009 (Boris, deLeon, Roeger, & Nikolva, 2010). Almost 33,000 human service nonprofit organizations contract with the government to deliver services (Boris, et al., 2010). The services provided by these organizations are critical to the lives of vulnerable American citizens. These organizations depend on committed employees to serve this group, carry out the mission, and reach organizational goals. Employees are nonprofit organizations greatest resource, investment, and also expense (Rutowski, Guiler, & Schimmel, 2009), thus turnover is considered a critical problem facing the nonprofit sector (Salamon, 2012). Retaining highly committed employees in this important work has been of interest to those studying the nonprofit sector because

In its recently announced final regulation, the Department of Labor raised the salary threshold below which most workers are eligible for overtime pay from $23,660 to $47,476. This change will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, extend overtime protections to millions of workers, reduce excessive hours of unpaid work by underpaid employees, and increase salaries for employees earning near the new threshold. In particular, this rule represents an important step toward fairer pay for women and people of color, who are overrepresented in lower-paying jobs and are often required to work additional hours without compensation.. We recognize that many nonprofit organizations will have to think through and solve interesting problems and will face challenges as we make the changes needed to comply with the new regulations. These important changes will not necessarily be easy. Nonetheless, we embrace this opportunity to restore the overtime pay that lower-paid workers toiling more than 40 hours a week ...

Nonprofits across the United States recognize that providing robust benefits, especially medical benefits, plays a crucial role in attracting and retaining key talent. Funding such packages, however, remains a challenge for organizations with limited access to capital. Similar to employers in the private industry, nonprofit organizations appear to be continuing cost saving strategies by shifting more expenses on to the employees.. The fifteenth annual Benefits in Nonprofit Organizations Survey, released on July 1, 2015, reports that nonprofits are paying approximately 68-78% of the total premium cost of medical coverage, on par with 2014 levels but substantially lower than employer contributions in 2012 (87%).. In addition to a strong focus on medical, prescription, and dental costs, the survey also reports data on life and disability insurance, retirement plan practices, paid leave, and other benefits. Some highlights include the following:. ...

Around 60 women attended as well as a few teenagers. This time (our 6th event in Kolkata, India) the stories were far more varied : delivering a baby, etc. The magic moment finally happened, almost at the end. A young woman came up and began by saying that she had attended the last TTO open mike but could not summon up enough courage to talk. She felt she still could not and almost went back to her seat, trembling and voice shaking and tears threatening to overwhelm her. I put my arms around her… Then she started relating how she had been repeatedly raped by an uncle when she was a youngster and how she had never been able to tell her parents and that she still has to be socially nice to the uncle… By this time everybody [in the audience] had moist eyes, some openly sniffing. It was wonderful seeing her courage and then her relief for being able to handle the ordeal of revelation. Her face was glowing…[and] looked as if a load had been lifted from her shoulders..

Nonprofit organizations and philanthropists stepped into a funding void caused by controversies over public funding of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research. Based on interviews of 83 representatives of 53 funders, we examine the motivations and accountability structures of public agencies, corporations, fundraising dependent nonprofit organizations and philanthropic organizations that funded hESC research in three jurisdictions: California, Sweden, and South Korea. While non-traditional forms of funding are essential in the early stages of research advancement, they are unreliable for the long timeframes necessary to advance cell therapies. Such funding sources may enter the field based on high expectations, but may exit just as rapidly based on disappointing rates of progress.. ...

This is the second study we have sponsored. While it was not a clinical trial per se, it was designed to evaluate test implants used in limb-sparing surgery. Additive manufacturing (also known as 3-D printing) can be used to make metal implants. Patient-specific implants designed via 3D medical imaging data (such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging) may provide a better anatomic fit and allow orthopedic procedures to be carried out with little or no modification to the underlying bone structure, thereby improving the bone-implant interface.. This study quantified the effects of plate contact area, plate orientation, and implant stiffness on the mechanical properties of constructs. Test implants were designed to represent the proximal and segmental portions of the limb-sparing endoprostheses. Five different plate configurations were used, both customized and commercially available implants. The study allowed the investigators to select an optimized limb-sparing implant design. To ...
Several globally minded medical students believe that one good model of care deserves another one just like it, especially when it comes to curing blindness in developing countries. Forming the nonprofit organization CatarACT, these students from Northwestern intend to combat the vision-robbing ravages of untreated cataracts by borrowing a solution that works in one area of the world and applying it to others.. "Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world, affecting 20 million people," says Yuna Rapoport, a second-year MD/MPH student at the Feinberg School. "Unfortunately the backlog of untreated cataracts is increasing, even though the cure is a quick, relatively inexpensive, and effective surgery. However, hospitals in India have developed a sustainable model for delivering high-quality, low-cost cataract surgeries to large numbers of patients.". Cataracts occur when the eyes natural lens begins to cloud over due to the often age-related clumping of proteins in the lens. Other ...

The roots of Leave No Trace can be traced to the 1970s and 1980s. In those decades, the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the National Park Service started to teach their non-motorized visitors how to have a minimal impact on the land. Also in the 70s, groups such as the Sierra Club were advocating minimum impact camping techniques. A pilot program in the 80s between the Boy Scouts of America and the High Uintas Wilderness tried to reach a wide audience. Finally, a national education program was developed in 1990 by the United States Forest Service in conjunction with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). The Leave No Trace program is managed by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, formerly Leave No Trace, Inc., which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Focus on Collisions - "Innovation is often the result of random conversations-collisions-where ideas outside your industry are applied to your own. We want to accelerate those collisions among people," says Tony Hsien, CEO of Zappos. In risk management we generally try to avoid collisions! And in the nonprofit sector some of us are obsessed with finding benchmarking data and case studies that feature similarly sized, mission-focused nonprofit organizations. Maybe Hsien is right and we need to look for ways to increase the opportunity to "collide" with unfamiliar, even foreign ideas, including those that require a mind-stretch to adapt to our world. Last weekend I read a fascinating study involving Fortune 500 companies with median annual revenues of $32 Billion. Had I understood the size of the study participants before becoming engrossed in the study, I might have discounted the entire piece as irrelevant to the large nonprofits the Center serves-none of which have anything nearing $32 Billion ...

A crisis pregnancy center (CPC), sometimes called a pregnancy resource center (PRC), is a type of nonprofit organization established to counsel pregnant women against having an abortion. CPCs generally provide peer counseling related to abortion, pregnancy, and childbirth, and may also offer additional non-medical services such as financial assistance, child-rearing resources, and adoption referrals. CPCs that qualify as medical clinics may also provide pregnancy testing, sonograms, and other services. However, CPCs have also been known to disseminate false medical information, usually about the supposed physical and mental health risks of abortion, but sometimes also about the effectiveness of condoms and the prevention of sexually transmitted infections. CPCs are typically run by pro-life Christians according to a conservative Christian philosophy, and they often operate in affiliation with one of three non-profit organizations: Care Net, Heartbeat International, and Birthright International. ...
