Health-based payment and computerized patient record systems. (1/1282)

Health care information technology is changing rapidly and dramatically. A small but growing number of clinicians, especially those in staff and group model HMOs and hospital-affiliated practices, are automating their patient medical records in response to pressure to improve quality and reduce costs. Computerized patient record systems in HMOs track risks, diagnoses, patterns of care, and outcomes across large populations. These systems provide access to large amounts of clinical information; as a result, they are very useful for risk-adjusted or health-based payment. The next stage of evolution in health-based payment is to switch from fee-for-service (claims) to HMO technology in calculating risk coefficients. This will occur when HMOs accumulate data sets containing records on provider-defined disease episodes, with every service linked to its appropriate disease episode for millions of patients. Computerized patient record systems support clinically meaningful risk-assessment models and protect patients and medical groups from the effects of adverse selection. They also offer significant potential for improving quality of care.  (+info)

Role for telemedicine in acute stroke. Feasibility and reliability of remote administration of the NIH stroke scale. (3/1282)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Immediate access to physicians experienced in acute stroke treatment may improve clinical outcomes in patients with acute stroke. Interactive telemedicine can make stroke specialists available to assist in the evaluation of patients at multiple urban or remote rural facilities. We tested whether interrater agreement for the NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS), a critical component of acute stroke assessment, would persist if performed over a telemedicine link. METHODS: One bedside and 1 remote NIHSS score were independently obtained on each of 20 patients with ischemic stroke. The bedside examination was performed by a stroke neurologist at the patient's bedside. The remote examination was performed by a second stroke neurologist through an interactive high-speed audio-video link, assisted by a nurse at the patient's bedside. Kappa coefficients were calculated for concordance between bedside and remote scores. RESULTS: Remote assessments took slightly longer than bedside assessments (mean 9.70 versus 6.55 minutes, P<0. 001). NIHSS scores ranged from 1 through 24. Based on weighted kappa coefficients, 4 items (orientation, motor arm, motor leg, and neglect) displayed excellent agreement, 6 items (language, dysarthria, sensation, visual fields, facial palsy, and gaze) displayed good agreement, and 2 items (commands and ataxia) displayed poor agreement. Total NIHSS scores obtained by bedside and remote methods were strongly correlated (r=0.97, P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The NIH Stroke Scale remains a swift and reliable clinical instrument when used over interactive video. Application of this technology can bring stroke expertise to the bedside, regardless of patient location.  (+info)

Making house calls: using telecommunications to bring health care into the home. (4/1282)

According to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, an estimated 22 million Americans used their computers to seek medical information in 1995, making health concerns the sixth most common reason for using the Internet in the United States. Market research firms estimate that the number of people going online for this purpose is growing by 70% annually. Developments in computer technology, the Internet, and wireless and satellite telecommunications have led to major innovations in the nature and delivery of health care that have broad implications for the way people will receive health information and treatment in the future, even allowing health care providers to interact through cyberspace with their patients and other caregivers.  (+info)

Education of health professionals using a proposed telehealth system. (5/1282)

The movement of health care from hospitals to the community has demanded a major shift in the way in which health care professionals are being taught. This paper describes the collaboration of the Schools of Nursing and Medicine in the use of telehealth technology for the education of health care professionals. The specific aims of the project were to use the technology for the verification of the students' assessment and physical examinations, for the conduct of multi-professional patient rounds, and provision of consultations to professionals at remote sites. Capitalizing on the Schools' previous experience for observing students via computer technology at remote sites, we employed PC-based workstations, specialized peripherals, and Internet connecting protocols to implement a telehealth project for professional clinical education. Initial student, faculty and staff reactions were generally positive. The formal evaluation plan focuses on students, faculty, and staff. Structured questionnaires are used and a comparison of learning by telehealth technology will be made with alternative (more conventional) methods in evaluating knowledge and quality of verification of physical examination findings, and satisfaction with the learning process.  (+info)

Process modeling is explored as an approach for prospectively managing the quality of a telemedicine/telehealth service. This kind of prospective quality management is more appropriate for dynamic health care environments compared to traditional quality assurance programs. A vector model approach has also been developed to match a process model to the needs of a particular site.  (+info)

Worldwide telemedicine services based on distributed multimedia electronic patient records by using the second generation Web server hyperwave. (8/1282)

A distributed multimedia electronic patient record (EPR) is a central component of a medicine-telematics application that supports physicians working in rural areas of South America, and offers medical services to scientists in Antarctica. A Hyperwave server is used to maintain the patient record. As opposed to common web servers--and as a second generation web server--Hyperwave provides the capability of holding documents in a distributed web space without the problem of broken links. This enables physicians to browse through a patient's record by using a standard browser even if the patient's record is distributed over several servers. The patient record is basically implemented on the "Good European Health Record" (GEHR) architecture.  (+info)

Telemedicine is the practice of medicine over distance with the use of telecommunications equipment. Early telemedicine solutions were a simple telephone call from one physician to another requesting advice or consultation. Today, telemedicine brings patients, physicians and specialists located hundreds of miles from each other into one setting for actual examinations, evaluations and consultations via store-and-forward and live video interaction.. The Telemedicine Network currently consists of nine sites with an additional 20 sites to be connected over the next nine months. By year 2005, 223 Health Centers or Patient Clinics, 21 Rural and Regional Hospitals and nine National Hospitals are to be connected to the network. We are providing greater accessibility to health care services and resources in rural communities as a result of this programme, stated Jamie Cortes, M.D., and General Surgeon at the Hospital Nacional de Nino, San Jose.

Telehealth (TH) and telecare (TC) interventions are increasingly valued for supporting self-care in ageing populations; however, evaluation studies often report high rates of non-participation that are not well understood. This paper reports from a qualitative study nested within a large randomised controlled trial in the UK: the Whole System Demonstrator (WSD) project. It explores barriers to participation and adoption of TH and TC from the perspective of people who declined to participate or withdrew from the trial. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with 22 people who declined to participate in the trial following explanations of the intervention (n = 19), or who withdrew from the intervention arm (n = 3). Participants were recruited from the four trial groups (with diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, or social care needs); and all came from the three trial areas (Cornwall, Kent, east London). Observations of home visits where the trial and interventions
The Whole Systems Demonstrator was a large, pragmatic, cluster randomised trial that compared telehealth with usual care among 3,230 patients with long-term conditions in three areas of England. Telehealth involved the regular transmission of physiological information such as blood glucose to health professionals working remotely. We examined whether telehealth led to changes in glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) among the subset of patients with type 2 diabetes. The general practice electronic medical record was used as the source of information on HbA1c. Effects on HbA1c were assessed using a repeated measures model that included all HbA1c readings recorded during the 12-month trial period, and adjusted for differences in HbA1c readings recorded before recruitment. Secondary analysis averaged multiple HbA1c readings recorded for each individual during the trial period. 513 of the 3,230 participants were identified as having type 2 diabetes and thus were included in the study. Telehealth was associated

Telemedicine has been touted as a way to fill in some gaps in health care for rural residents. But telemedicine relies on broadband service, which parts of Appalachia still dont have.. Without broadband, you dont have telemedicine, said nurse practitioner Lindsey Kennedy. Kennedy manages the telemedicine program at Bland County Medical Center in southwestern Virginia.. The clinic is located at that tip of Virginia that curves down between West Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. Kennedy said patients from all of those states utilize the clinics telemedicine services.. The Bland clinic is a federally qualified health center, which means that many of the clinics patients are uninsured or underinsured. Without telemedicine, patients needing specialty care have to drive to a hospital that offers financial assistance, which could be hours away.. But its just not feasible for our patients to drive that far and to provide the finances for transportation and the time for that, ...

HARTFORD, CT - Governor Ned Lamont today announced that he has signed an executive order modifying certain state laws in order to allow expanded access to telehealth services to continue in Connecticut during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.. Telehealth services are those that enable healthcare providers to interact with patients, including those with Medicaid coverage, without needing to meet in person by using electronic methods, such as video conferencing and telephones, and thus supporting adequate social distancing measures.. When the pandemic began in March 2020, Governor Lamont immediately recognized the need to encourage the use of telehealth and he issued Executive Order No. 7G, which utilized the emergency authority granted to him due to the pandemic in order to relax certain laws regulating these services.. To further encourage the use of telehealth, the Connecticut General Assembly met in special session in July 2020 and adopted Public Act 20-2, which codified those provisions of the ...

Many states still limit Medicaid reimbursement for telemedicine, and, according to the American Telemedicine Association, 24 states specify settings, such as a doctors office, where a patient must be in order to participate in a telemedicine appointment. In Texas, the state Medical Board is involved in a legal dispute over its insistence that a doctor-patient relationship be established before telemedicine can be used. The dispute, however, doesnt apply to school telemedicine as long as a school nurse is present.. But as state policymakers become more accustomed to telemedicine and familiar with its benefits, were seeing many of the restrictions falling to the wayside, said Latoya Thomas, the director of state policy for the American Telemedicine Association..

Diabetes education is important in the treatment of the person with diabetes. A diabetes self-management education program not only educates the patient and his/her family to the basics of diabetes care but also integrates diabetes care into daily life while providing coping skills to adjust to this chronic illness. Unfortunately, comprehensive diabetes care is not available to all persons with diabetes. One obstacle to the provision of comprehensive diabetes care is the unavailability of a diabetes treatment center. many people with diabetes live too far or do not have the transportation to be able to attend education programs that met national standards. We have shown that telemedicine is an effective means to provide comprehensive 1:1 individualized diabetes education to persons with diabetes. We now propose to test the hypothesis that diabetes groups education classes can be provided effectively through telemedicine technology to individuals living in rural areas. Patients with diabetes will ...
Telemedicine, which literally means healing at a distance, is a constantly evolving method to deliver care in a remote fashion using information and communication technologies (ICTs) [1]. The rapid advancement and availability of ICTs along with the expansion of internet access to the general public through smartphones as well as portable (i.e. tablet and laptop computers) and desktop computers have served as a potent driving force for telemedicine development in recent years [2]. Advantages of telemedicine are indisputable, particularly with regard of its potential to increase access to health care service overcoming geographical barriers. Of note, in spite of its advantages, until this year the growth of telemedicine services has been somewhat less impressive than expected due to several reasons including cultural barriers, the need of proper regulations, insurance coverage, confidentiality and other issues [2]. However, the ongoing outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) have ...
Fats consist of a wide group of compounds that are generally soluble in organic solvents and largely insoluble in water. All fats consist of fatty acids bonded to a backbone structure, often glycerol. Fats are the sources for fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. They provide energy and stability to many internal organs. The sources of fats are milk & milk products, eggs, meat, pork, beef, chicken, fish, nuts and vegetable oils. There is a probable causal link between intake of saturated fatty acids and type 2 diabetes and a possible causal association between total fat intake and type 2 diabetes. There is convincing evidence that high intake of Myristic & Palmitic acids and trans fatty acids contribute to an increase in risk for cardiovascular diseases. There is a convincing association for consumption of fish and fish oils and foods high in linoleic acid with reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases. A probable level of evidence demonstrates a decreased risk of cardiovascular ...
Background: AHA/ACC guidelines recommend prehospital 12-lead ECG for patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). However, transmission of prehospital 12-lead ECG to emergency department (ED) is still not spread and ECG interpretation on the prehospital and ED is not established. Therefore, we developed and tested the clinical usefulness of the mobile telemedicine system (MTS) to transmit 12-lead ECG and other parameters between moving ambulances and physicians in cardiac emergency.. Methods: We set up the MTS on an ambulance in clinical condition. Real time 12-lead ECG was transmitted together with vital signs and live video during transferring the patient by the ambulance. We assess the efficacy and usefulness of the MTS for the triage on 90 cardiovascular emergency cases in the super-acute phase from June 2008 to May 2009. During the same period, we had 140 acute myocardial infarction (AMI) cases. Sixteen of these were used this MTS. Then, we compared various data between MTS (n=16) and ...

Despite the promise of telehealth in cardiology, hurdles to wider use of these tools remain in the form of inconsistent reimbursement policy and implementation challenges.. A recent analysis suggested that 6.8% of nonspecialty US hospitals are participating in a telecardiology programs. Interviews conducted with 36 hospitals participating in telemedicine efforts of any specialty found that the programs help them boost access to care and keep lower acuity patients at home. Many programs reported using a one-time funding source to get their telemedicine programs off the ground, but many also reported that reimbursement challenges have hampered their efforts.. Some physicians have also been slow to embrace the technology.. There is a large group of skeptics and there are reimbursement issues, said Banchs.. Medicare currently only reimburses for virtual telehealth visits for patients in rural areas, with a few exceptions, and only 0.2% of beneficiaries in 2014 used a telehealth service, according ...
Receiving proper, purposeful and needs-oriented training is important to healthcare professionals expected to undertake the new ways of working implied by the implementation of telecare. This is in contrast to the informal learning that a majority of healthcare professionals report in regards to telecare practice [35]. The importance of training was largely expressed in terms of its role in creating the necessary confidence to master new skills and foster the attitudes necessary to provide care at a distance and successfully adopt telecare practice [3, 12, 17, 30, 31]. Carter, Horrigan and Hudyma [23] note similar findings, in that telecare training was regarded as important in fostering practitioner confidence and a positive attitude towards the use of telecare in the delivery of healthcare services. As such, staff training should emphasise a positive view of telecare as a way of enabling and supporting, as opposed to replacing, existing professional competencies and care processes [14, ...
Keeping on top of your healthcare needs is now more important than ever, but due to the COVID-19 virus, you may be asked by your healthcare system or local physicians office to avoid in-person visits. Avoiding in-person visits helps control the spread of the disease and ensures that the most critically ill receive frontline care. But just because you may not be able to see your healthcare provider in person does not mean that you should not seek out medical care.. Telemedicine is a new reality for all of us. To make it easier to connect with your healthcare team, the federal government has temporarily expanded telemedicine services for Medicare beneficiaries to cover virtual visits. Virtual visits currently include various modes of interaction with your healthcare team including video chats, phone calls, and e-mail.. Weve put together four key tips to help make your telemedicine visit as beneficial as possible:. ...

Telehealth and Telecare Aware posts pointers to a broad range of news items. Authors of those items often use terms telecare and telehealth in inventive and idiosyncratic ways. Telecare Awares editors can generally live with that variation. However, when we use these terms we usually mean: • Telecare: from simple personal alarms (AKA pendant/panic/medical/social alarms, PERS, and so on) through to smart homes that focus on alerts for risk including, for example: falls; smoke; changes in daily activity patterns and wandering. Telecare may also be used to confirm that someone is safe and to prompt them to take medication. The alert generates an appropriate response to the situation allowing someone to live more independently and confidently in their own home for longer.. • Telehealth: as in remote vital signs monitoring. Vital signs of patients with long term conditions are measured daily by devices at home and the data sent to a monitoring centre for response by a nurse or doctor if ...

With the onset of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the need for health care environments to rapidly adopt strategies to reduce disease spread became clear. The Massachusetts governor announced a state of emergency on March 10, 2020,1 and enacted stay-at-home orders effective March 24, 2020.2 To align with this, Boston Childrens Hospital (BCH) cancelled in-person elective ambulatory care. To maintain access to care, insurance reimbursement for telehealth services was mandated.1 Previously, telehealth had been employed in specialized settings, such as pediatric neurology3,4 and cardiology5 practices serving remote areas as well as in pediatric surgery for perioperative visits6; however, it had not yet been widely adopted in US pediatric specialty clinics at the time local stay-at-home orders went into effect. To continue uninterrupted routine care, efficient implementation of telehealth became necessary.. Pediatric pulmonary clinics serve a diverse patient population, composed of ...

However, the studies are few and only involve COPD patients who are in a stable phase or in-patients who are ready for discharge. COPD patients hospitalized with an acute exacerbation may also benefit from telemedicine solutions. The overall aim is to investigate a telemedicine-based treatment solution for patients with acute exacerbation of COPD at home as compared to conventional hospital treatment measured according to first treatment failure, which is defined as readmission due to COPD within 30 days after discharge. COPD patients with acute exacerbation who fulfilled the eligibility criteria and were from two university hospitals in Denmark were randomized (1:1) by computer-generated tables that allocated treatments in blocks of four to receive either standard treatment at the
The goal of this report was to assess telemedicine services that substitute for face-to-face medical diagnosis and treatment and that may apply to the Medicare population. We focused on three distinct telemedicine study areas -- store-and-forward, self-monitoring/testing, and clinician-interactive services.
Recently, experts testified before the House Small Business Committee about the impact of telemedicine on providers, patients and small practices. In the last few years, studies have examined how telemedicine impacts patient care, medication management, blood pressure and more. While the body of research is relatively young, telemedicine is proving to be a viable tool for improving health care. Telemedicine has been demonstrated to mitigate many of our nations significant challenges including disparities in access to care, workforce shortages, and geographic mal-distribution of providers, said Karen S. Rheuban, MD, FACC, professor of pediatrics and director of the University of Virginia Center for Telehealth, during her testimony before the committee. Telemedicine improves patient triage and clinical outcomes, reduces the burden of travel for care, and fosters more timely access to care. Last week, ACC President Patrick T. OGara, MD, FACC, shared his perspective on how personalized ...
The large study was conducted to review recent evidence on the effectiveness of telemedicine - the use of telecommunications to deliver health services - which is a rapidly growing field. It included 111 randomized controlled trials conducted in the United States, Korea, Canada, Australia and other countries.. The researchers found that the use of telephones, smartphones, texting (SMS) and interactive websites (Web portals), which allowed two-way communication between patients and health care providers about blood glucose levels and interventions such as exercise and medication adjustments, had a positive effect on blood sugar levels. Our systematic review showed that telemedicine may be a useful supplement to usual clinical care to control HbA1C [glycated hemoglobin], at least in the short term. Telemedicine interventions appeared to be most effective when they use a more interactive format, such as a Web portal or text messaging, to help patients with self-management, writes senior author ...

Telemedicine provides a forum to bring any provider to any patient almost instantaneously and is well equipped to circumvent other barriers impeding access to subspecialist care. In the United States, it is estimated that 20% of the population has no access to neurological services.2 Improved outcomes from the use of telemedicine are well established in the context of acute ischemic stroke. The STRokE DOC (Stroke Team Remote Evaluation Using a Digital Observation Camera) randomized controlled trial demonstrated that telemedicine consultation led to more accurate thrombolysis decisions than did telephone consults, without changing the rate of complications in areas without a neurological specialist.3 Within neurosurgery, telemedicine has reduced costs without compromising outcomes in the setting of intracranial hemorrhage and neurological trauma.4 Cost savings primarily resulted from limiting unnecessary, expensive transfer to tertiary care centers from outlying hospitals through providing ...

To our knowledge this is the first systematic review with the purpose of summarizing studies measuring the effectiveness of telemedicine follow-up care of patients with leg and foot ulcers. The evidence that we identified [47] still renders it inconclusive whether telemedicine management of people with diabetes-related foot ulcers may be an equivalent alternative to traditional follow-up concerning the healing time of the ulcers. The strength of the evidence is very low and limited by the study design: a high risk of systematic bias, insufficient and partly inadequate reporting of predefined outcome values and few participants especially in the intervention group.. Randomized controlled trials with larger samples and sufficient follow-up time are needed to produce valid evidence about the effectiveness of telemedicine follow-up care of leg and foot ulcers. Even though health care services have used telemedicine for several years, studies that evaluate the effect of telemedicine have been limited ...
PINEHURST - FirstHealth Home Care is proud to announce its approval of accreditation status in Home Health telehealth by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC). This distinction in telehealth recognizes FirstHealth Home Care for providing a higher level of patient care and improved business operations through the use of telemedicine.

FirstHealth Home Care also uses telehealth to provide daily disease-specific surveys and video education and virtual video ...
Background and aims: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a rapid growth in the use of telemedicine for delivery of ambulatory diabetes care. This study evaluated the feasibility of remote HbA1c monitoring via dried blood spot (DBS) testing to support assessment of glycemic control for telemedicine visits and examined clinical and demographic characteristics associated with patient completion of DBS testing. Methods: Providers could place orders for DBS HbA1c 3 weeks prior to telemedicine visits. Feasibility was assessed by examining DBS completion rates, time to completion, and availability of DBS results prior to telemedicine visits. Chi-square tests and Mann Whitney tests were used to assess whether completion rates were associated with participant characteristics. Results: Of 303 DBS orders placed for telemedicine visits in June 2020, 162 patients completed the DBS test for a completion rate of (53.4%). Average time from collection at home to result being reported was 6.9 (3.8) days. The DBS result was
AIMS: To evaluate evidence for feasibility, acceptability and cost-effectiveness of diabetes telemedicine applications. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, PSYCHINFO, CINAHL, Cochrane, and INSPEC were searched using the terms diabetes and telemedicine for clinical studies using electronic transfer of blood glucose results in people with diabetes. The technology used, trial design and clinical outcome measures used were extracted for trials and prospective cohort studies. Randomized controlled trials with HbA(1c) as an outcome were pooled using standard meta-analytical methods. RESULTS: We identified 539 papers among which 32 papers described 10 prospective cohort studies, 12 parallel group randomized controlled trials (RCT), three crossover trials, and one non-parallel group trial. Only two studies described full details of randomization, blinding of outcomes and dropouts and withdrawals. Electronic transfer of glucose results appears feasible in a clinical setting. Only two of the RCTs included more than 100

It seems that 2019 has been the year of telehealth for UAE regulators.. This summer, the long awaited executive regulations to the federal medical liability law of 2016 (Medical Liability Law) were issued, setting out, amongst other things, the terms and conditions for providing telehealth services in the UAE, solidifying at the federal level the permissibility and parameters for providing such services.. For historical context, federal laws concerning the practice of human medicine and the medical liability law of 2008 contained an obligation for a physician to see patients face-to-face and to conduct a physical, in person clinical examination. The Medical Liability Law paved the way for the health authorities in the UAE to establish a system that would permit the provision of distance health services; however, the law required that such systems developed by the regulators be subject to the terms and conditions set by the executive regulations of the Medical Liability Law. While the executive ...

The National Health Service (NHS) has rapidly adopted telemedicine solutions as an alternative to face-to-face consultations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of HCPs (Healthcare Professionals) were unfamiliar with Telemedicine prior to the current pandemic. Remote consultation is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, thus we designed this survey. A survey designed to evaluate the use of telephone consultation by HCPs, assessing its implementation, challenges and drawbacks. A web link survey conducted through SurveyMonkey was sent to HCPs across six UK Trusts the period of May 2020. The survey received 114 responses (84%) being doctors. 95% of respondents had not received training prior to engaging in telemedicine consultations. 64% were unaware of the updated General Medical Council guidance concerning remote consultations. The most common barrier in remote consultation was the inability to access patient records raised by 37% of respondents. However, 73% of respondents felt ...

Additionally, secure mobile videoconferencing needs to be implemented that allows simultaneous multi-point connectivity to other appropriate specialists - pathologists, microbiologists, hematologists, etc., to collaborate on the care of the patient as this will result in improved outcomes. And telemedicine services will help minimize the amount of direct contact by healthcare workers to the patient and thus mitigate the risk of exposure and spread of disease.. And I would respectfully suggest to Mr. Klain that he quickly ramp up a national telehealth network that would also comprise a global communications call center, with real-time video conferencing and data transfer from anywhere in the world- this would further enhance cooperation/collaboration between healthcare professionals to diagnose, educate and follow proper protocols for Ebola and other diseases being seen not only in humans, but in animals and our entire food chain.. There are also some technologies that may help accelerate the ...
Following WHOs example, we did not distinguish between telehealth and telemedicine; instead we used the term telehealth to address both telehealth and telemedicine.1 This broad definition of telehealth encompasses several modes of delivery, such as videoconferencing, mobile applications and secure messaging. WHO recognises several branches of telemedicine: teleradiology, teledermatology, telepathology and telepsychology.1 With the increased use of technology in healthcare, there has been a great emphasis on telehealth because it can extend the services of providers to remote locations and capitalise on the availability of subject matter experts and overcome the barrier of proximity. Telehealth extends access, and it has the potential of making healthcare services more convenient for patients, especially those in rural areas, those with small children (child care) and those with mobility restrictions.2 3 Patient satisfaction is a growing concern in all aspects of healthcare, and as the voice of ...

Retail clinics are an area in which Rite Aid has not invested to the same degree as Walgreens and CVS, but NowClinic shows that there are more ways to offer clinical services in a retail pharmacy setting than building an extra clinic. In 2011, Rite Aid became the first to provide such virtual clinics in a retail pharmacy setting when it launched the program as a pilot in nine stores in Detroit.. NowClinic is part of the growing segment known as telehealth, or telemedicine, which ranges from services like those at Rite Aid to remote monitoring of patients by their physicians. Last month, a report by healthcare market research firm IHS indicated that telehealth was expected to reach 1.8 million patients around the world by 2017, finding that in 2012, there were already 308,000 patients remotely monitored by healthcare providers for various chronic conditions. In the United States, according to the American Telemedicine Association, there are currently about 200 telemedicine networks, with 3,500 ...

Background: Telemonitoring studies in chronic heart failure are characterized by mixed mortality and hospitalization outcomes, which have deterred the uptake of telemonitoring in clinical practice. These mixed outcomes may reflect the diverse range of patient management strategies incorporated in telemonitoring. To address this, we compared the effects of different telemonitoring strategies on clinical outcomes. Objective: The aim of this systematic review and subgroup meta-analysis was to identify noninvasive telemonitoring strategies attributing to improvements in all-cause mortality or hospitalization outcomes for patients with chronic heart failure. Methods: We reviewed and analyzed telemonitoring strategies from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing telemonitoring intervention with usual care. For each strategy, we examined whether RCTs that applied the strategy in the telemonitoring intervention (subgroup 1) resulted in a significantly lower risk ratio (RR) of all-cause mortality or

The South Dakota Department of Social Services is exploring using telemedicine services to help drug and alcohol abusers in remote parts of the state
Community EMS, a Southfield, Mich., ambulance and consulting company, has begun pilot testing a mobile health initiative to use paramedics and telemedicine to assess the health of chronic disease patients who develop non-emergency health problems. The pilot is viewed as a way to reduce costly hospital readmissions and unnecessary visits to emergency departments.. When a patient is discharged from a hospital to home or long-term care facility and they have a chronic illness, many things can trigger a patient being sent back to the hospital, said Greg Beauchemin, CEO of Community EMS. Some symptoms can be addressed by home health agencies. But after hours, they use an ambulance, Beauchemin said. Because the average cost of an ambulance run to a hospital is $3,700, Beauchemin said, Community EMS can make a house call for one-tenth of that cost. He said at least 50% of the ambulance runs in the city of Detroits Detroit EMS are unnecessary.. Under the mobile health initiative, Community EMS ...

Local telehealth experts say the legislation could be a game changer.. Disparities in healthcare are a huge issue in Arizona, Dr. Ronald Weinstein, founding director of the Arizona Telemedicine Program, told Healthcare IT News. There are 22 tribal nations in Arizona, many located in rural areas, that also have both significant disparities in healthcare and internet access, said Weinstein. In addition, we have an estimated 900,000 snowbirds who winter in Arizona, many of whom lose contact with their doctors back home. Telehealth provides their solution as well, he said. Weinstein expressed high hopes for virtual cares potential to provide an on-ramp to greater adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning throughout the healthcare industry. What is especially noteworthy is that telemedicine and telehealth provide the gateway for across-the-board implementations of AI into every facet of the healthcare delivery system in the United States, said Weinstein.

Even though the idea of using computers in medicine emerged as technology advanced in the early 20th century, it was not until the 1950s that informatics began to have an effect in the United States.[41] The earliest use of electronic digital computers for medicine was for dental projects in the 1950s at the United States National Bureau of Standards by Robert Ledley.[45] During the mid-1950s, the United States Air Force (USAF) carried out several medical projects on its computers while also encouraging civilian agencies such as the National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council (NAS-NRC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to sponsor such work.[46] In 1959, Ledley and Lee B. Lusted published "Reasoning Foundations of Medical Diagnosis," a widely read article in Science, which introduced computing (especially operations research) techniques to medical workers. Ledley and Lusted's article has remained influential for decades, especially within the field of medical decision ...

From the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, the aim of public health was controlling the harm from infectious diseases, which were largely under control by the 1950s. By the mid 1970s it was clear that reducing illness, death, and rising health care costs could best be achieved through a focus on health promotion and disease prevention. At the heart of the new approach was the role of a health educator [6] A health educator is "a professionally prepared individual who serves in a variety of roles and is specifically trained to use appropriate educational strategies and methods to facilitate the development of policies, procedures, interventions, and systems conducive to the health of individuals, groups, and communities" (Joint Committee on Terminology, 2001, p. 100). In January 1978 the Role Delineation Project was put into place, in order to define the basic roles and responsibilities for the health educator. The result was a Framework for the Development of Competency-Based ...
