The average wait time observed in the preintervention group is similar to the wait times observed in other research regarding prior authorizations of HCV infection treatment.8 Do et al8 found that approximately 1 in 5 prescriptions for HCV therapy are initially denied by PBMs, which require provider appeal. Introducing a collaborative approach to processing prior authorizations between pharmacy and the clinic staff resulted in a reduction in the time between the provider ordering the medication and the pharmacys awareness that the medication had been approved by the PBM. In addition to the reduction in mean wait time in the adjusted model, the spread in the distribution of times was reduced as seen by the reduced standard deviation in both unadjusted and adjusted models. From a customer service standpoint, more precision with wait times allows the clinic and pharmacy teams to manage patient expectations and improve satisfaction with service.13 A multidisciplinary approach may also improve the ...

Eagle Genomics held their 3rd annual Symposium in Cambridge on 21st March 2013, offering a wide variety of talks under a common theme of big data and cuts in Bioinformatics. These were interspersed with breaks for very useful networking conversations.. It is always a joy to meet our authors at such meetings and I was pleased to meet the first author of a sugar beet paper published a year ago in BMC Genomics. Her presence (and others from the plant world) marked an increased emphasis on plant genomics over the previous two meetings held in 2011 and 2012.. The talks ranged from using next generation methods for identifying old and ancient samples in a museum environment to pre-competitive alliances and the development of green computing software. The full agenda is available here.. The keynote speaker was John Wise of the Pistoia Alliance (a precompetitive alliance of life science groups that aims to lower barriers to innovation) -whose theme was "Open Innovation does work and the Pistoia Alliance ...
As a second example, even though academic and clinical educators strive to facilitate students ability to ask questions and answer them, they may differ in their focus. Academic educators may encourage students to ask empirical questions whereas clinical educators may push students to ask clinical questions. Again, both types of questions need to be asked and answered for future professionals to keep the research and clinical aspects of the profession alive. However, integration of academic and clinical questions does not mean the questions must be asked at the same time and same place. Rather, students must be shown how to ask these questions, and how questions from either aspect of our profession affect the other. An average daily balance of academic and clinical questions asked and answered across a curriculum ensures a healthy return on educators invested efforts ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): There is much positive research on computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) environments in asynchronous distributed learning groups (DLGs). There is also research that shows that contemporary CSCL environments do not completely fulfil expectations on supporting interactive group learning, shared understanding, social construction of knowledge, and acquisition of competencies. There appear to be two major pitfalls impeding achievement of the desired social interaction in CSCL environments: taking social interaction in groups for granted and the lack of attention paid to the social psychological dimension of social interaction outside of the task context. Current solutions offered to avoid the pitfalls placed responsibility on instructors and teachers to encourage collaborative learning and social interaction. To both free educators from this burden and be more cost effective, we propose an intelligent CSCL environment.
Downloadable! The importance of networks supporting collaboration between legally independent business partners is increasing. This is partly due to on specialization focused business strategies and the effects of globalization. Often these collaborative networks are submitted to web-based services linked through service oriented architecture (SOA) to individual firms ERP environment. However, when looking at Western Europe, integration of business activities is still challenged by a blockade of traditional business patterns. Participants in collaborative networks have to cross bridges to break with traditional business patterns. Virtues in business such as: transparency, trustworthiness, and action orientation are considered as constraints. Traditional business cherishes illusion about price, capacity and firms business standards. To implement change and transparent business settings ethical leadership is required.

Objective. The objective of this project was to develop core competencies in pain assessment and management for prelicensure health professional education. Such core pain competencies common to all prelicensure health professionals have not been previously reported. Methods. An interprofessional executive committee led a consensus-building process to develop the core competencies. An in-depth literature review was conducted followed by engagement of an interprofessional Competency Advisory Committee to critique competencies through an iterative process. A 2-day summit was held so that consensus could be reached. Results. The consensus-derived competencies were categorized within four domains: multidimensional nature of pain, pain assessment and measurement, management of pain, and context of pain management. These domains address the fundamental concepts and complexity of pain; how pain is observed and assessed; collaborative approaches to treatment options; and application of competencies across the

Harwood believes solutions to our shared problems will not be found by government. Rather they require people and communities working together. I agree, but I would add institutions to the mix. I think schools, nonprofits and the media are part of the collaborative approach needed for problem-solving. But Harwoods point is well taken. He argues that the biggest issue we face is to restore our belief that we can come together and get things done, and that will only happen in our local communities. "We each have the power within us to overcome our anxiety and set a new trajectory for the country," Harwood writes. I find that hopeful.. But what do we do when conditions within our local communities are also the cause of our anxiety? How do we reconnect with others when theres been a breakdown of trust within the very space to which we need to turn for solutions?. Differences of opinion can be healthy. If we are willing to listen to each other and make a sincere effort to find common ground, we can ...

Overall, most people I spoke with after the event seemed generally pleased with Mr. Clintons performance, especially when he admitted the limitations of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). They liked his quip about how 99.5% of peoples DNA are identical, yet we spend so much time focused on making sure others know the differences in the remaining 0.5% of their genome. It was clear he was a master at reaching across the aisle and he opined for a more collaborative approach to resolving our nations health care problems. When asked whether he thought the ACA (Affordable Care Act) would fix whats wrong with Americas health care system, he said honestly "Maybe. Maybe not." But he stuck with the partisan narrative of error management, paying by "performance" rather than procedures and asking doctors to do their part to fix the system, seemingly unaware of the 30% drop in RVU payments that took hold 1 January 2013 and the 2% Medicare payments to physicians that recently affected many members of his ...

When I discussed a cloud options for PLM yesterday in my article, I mentioned that a very significant opportunity comes in ability to share and collaborate on the product related content (drawings, models, bills) when using cloud models. This option comes as a pathway for those companies and people that have a concern to store overall product IP on cloud storage.. So, latest feature introduced by Google Docs- Shared Folders is the best example of cloud based technology to implement collaboration approach. Actually, I think PLM vendors need to take a very careful look on such capabilities of Google Docs. I do see an option when many of the smaller customers will be able to use Share Folders in their current configuration to facilitate document exchange and collaboration with suppliers and across the enterprise.. ...

The automatic analysis provides robust and reliable results that overlapped with the manual analyses with an overall of higher than 90% agreement. Moreover, for the analysts, the organization and display of screening spectra stacked with all the reference spectra are of invaluable help for validating results and making decisions in cases where compound signals are close to each other. ...
Collaboration is the process of working across agency and professional lines towards shared goals and objectives. The degree of connection, integration and partnership between different professionals and agencies can vary from one collaborative effort to the next. The level of involvement is often dictated by the purpose and complexity of collaboration and the shared goals.. A primary strategy in delivering human services, collaboration holds great potential in leveraging the resources, knowledge and expertise in a fragmented system. Collaboration has the potential to help agencies respond to complex social problems under ever increasing budget pressures, demand for efficiency and a rising public demand for services. Although a promising practice, and increasingly on the rise, the majority of collaborations do not succeed. Sustained and successful collaboration requires continues evaluation and assessment of the structure, process and outcome of collaboration.. ...

In October of 2003 I accepted a position as a Research Scientist with a 50%/50% joint appointment in the Language Technologies Institute and the Human-Computer Interaction Institute. The series of studies I ran during my time at LRDC convinced me of the naivet of assuming that the most important problem in providing effective tutorial dialogue technology was in overcoming the technical challenges. Since coming to CMU I have shifted my emphasis very sharply towards design based on detailed, empirically constructed models of the multiplicity of underlying mechanisms that are at work at the level of the individual student in the midst of human-human interaction. Here I discuss a few selected recent findings and results. A comprehensive list of my other funded projects is found in Section V. A major focus of my research has been on working towards supporting collaborative learning processes with language technologies. Adaptive forms of collaborative learning support would be an advance to the ...
When designing this method, the researchers aimed for a more practical approach to helping patients. Meeting with health care professionals on only 1 occasion seems to be more feasible in light of the hectic lifestyle many people have today. The success of this 1-stop clinic approach has been an encouraging experience. Smoking-cessation rates using health care professional counseling alone are ~12%, whereas success rates with NRT alone after 6 months have ranged from 3.0% to 9.2%.2 In the first arm of this program, 22% of people had quit smoking after 6 months. The outcome rates were even higher in the second project, 43%, even with limited participation in follow-up. Conclusion Smoking contributes to many medical conditions and disease states. Outcomes from this model show the effectiveness of spirometry results as a motivational technique and further evidence of its use as an important tool in the diagnosis of abnormal airway function. The NLHEP advocates the use of spirometry, with the goal ...

3. Such close collaboration lead to more efficient research infrastructure and speed up the time to discovery. By integrating a biostatistician in a project, the time to discovery can be shortened in several critical steps of the project, study design, data preparation, data analysis and manuscript preparation. Current biomedical, particularly translational studies, often involve a series of in vitro, in vivo experiments and can evolve into clinical human studies. Such studies generates large amount diverse form of data which require to be properly handled by different analytical methods. A close collaborative relationship between a biomedical researcher and the biostatistician can avoid many avoidable trial and errors in protocol preparation, study design, data preparation, data analysis, results interpretation, etc., thus speed up the discovery. For example, a recent project examining the role of inflammation-COX-aromatase axis in breast cancer risk involves a series of clinical and laboratory ...

October 2015. Palak Patel has a curious mind, as he puts it. He is keen to verify observations through experimentation - be it the perfect amount of chocolate to eat, or the accuracy of genetic tests for diagnosing prostate cancer.. Palak is a second-year PhD student in Pathology, working with Dr. David Berman in the Queens Cancer Research Institute. They are part of a 13-lab, cross-Canada collaborative project focused on prostate cancer, funded by a Movember Team Grant (Prostate Cancer Canada).. For Palak, working in this collaborative environment is one of the best parts of working at Queens. He has never worked on such a large collaborative project before - most collaborative projects in the field are done with up to three or four labs.. Palak emphasizes the importance of working with people with different expertise in the group, and of each lab working on a different part of the puzzle as well as validating the work of other labs (that is, replicating the experiments to see if the ...
