William Ozzie may be a fictional solider, but his electronic health record showed how Kaiser Permanente, the Department of Veterans Affairs and private sector providers can seamlessly share information over an interoperable health information exchange. In a critical step towards giving patients and doctors a health care Internet, Kaiser Permanente collaborated with the VA in a unique wounded warrior test demonstration of the Nationwide Health Information Network. The scenario showed how physicians could safely and securely share Ozzies sample medical history across multiple EHR systems, such as Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect and the VAs VistAWeb, to inform medical decisions and deliver high quality care regardless of location or where the health record originated.. Kaiser Permanente physician George Peredy, MD, showed how William Ozzies sample patient data could be obtained from five different health providers including the VA, the Department of Defense and the private sector. In the ...
New York State has awarded grants to several regional health information exchange organizations (RHIOs), organizations established to create the technical and policy infrastructure needed to exchange health data between providers, payers, and public health agencies within a particular geographic region, to build an interoperable system for people to manage their own health information. Two of these grant recipients are the Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIX) and Long Island Patient Information Xchange (LIPIX).. Since no off-the shelf technology currently exists to create such a system, BHIX is working with a commercial vendor to develop a unique system that is tailored toward the needs of their consumers and providers, while LIPIX is developing their own unique system in-house. Both BHIXs and LIPIXs interoperable personal health management systems will offer various features to consumers and providers in their community. Consumers may be able to perform tasks such as viewing their lab ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The realization of Health Information Systems (HIS) requires rigorous evaluation that addresses technology, human and organization issues. Our review indicates that current evaluation methods evaluate different aspects of HIS and they can be improved upon. A new evaluation framework, human, organization and technology-fit (HOT-fit) was developed after having conducted a critical appraisal of the findings of existing HIS evaluation studies. HOT-fit builds on previous models of IS evaluation--in particular, the IS Success Model and the IT-Organization Fit Model. This paper introduces the new framework for HIS evaluation that incorporates comprehensive dimensions and measures of HIS and provides a technological, human and organizational fit. METHODS: Literature review on HIS and IS evaluation studies and pilot testing of developed framework. The framework was used to evaluate a Fundus Imaging System (FIS) of a primary care organization in the UK. The case study was conducted ...
Ideally, that sort of scenario will be common in the near future. Interestingly, the groundwork for regional health information organizations (RHIOs) was laid in the 1990s. Back then, the concept of community health information networks (CHINs) started to grab hold of the health plan market. But it failed because of two factors, according to Donald Gravlin, vice president at Capgemini, the consulting company: "technology and economics/politics.". Back then, the technology to create, maintain, and support a national database was still in its infancy. "The ability to easily codify and share data was nonexistent, so there was a technical hurdle to overcome.". Compounding that problem was the fact that within many communities that were served by two or more health delivery networks, "there were prevalent fears of patient stealing," says Gravlin.. "Resolving the politics to allow health care organizations to share data, while refraining from taking the position of I will if you will and you go ...
Right now, Im taking a natural approach to treatment. During my first year after my diagnosis, I tried several prescription fibro medications, but wasnt able to take any of them due to side effects or because they just didnt work. Six months ago, I began working remotely with a fibromyalgia specialist in Alabama. He is a doctor of functional medicine and uses supplements and diets to treat the underlying causes of fibromyalgia. I take quite a few supplements, including some to support my adrenal glands, thyroid, digestion, and brain function. I also take many of the typical fibro supplements, including magnesium malate, a high-quality multivitamin, fish oil, CoQ10, etc. Im on an anti-inflammatory diet and have cut out gluten, processed sugar, fast food, chemicals/preservatives, etc. Ive lost 40 pounds since starting the diet in September. Overall, I have less pain and more energy. I do not feel normal, but Im markedly better than I was when I started working with my new physician. Since my ...
Ive done a rough translation of the pertinent jindian comments here. Note that Yang Zhenjis book has a classification scheme of the palm orientations that is similar, but not identical to Yang Zhenduos. Those mentioned in his jindian comments include the "seated-wrist standing palm" which he describes as having "the palm seated, the center of the hand facing forward. This class of palm method is used comparatively often-most forward pushes use this palm, such as the two palms of the An form, the pushing palm of Brush Knee Twist Step, etc." A "lateral palm" has "the center of the hand facing forward, placed in a lateral orientation, as in the upper palm of White Crane Displays Wings." He says for an "inclined palm" that "the back of the hand forms a sloping shape, with the center of the hand inclined forward and slightly downward, as in the pushing left hand of Embrace Tiger Return to Mountain. The inclined palm is employed quite frequently in the form." He also mentions the "face-down palm," ...
It doesnt matter which type of seating you choose, because when performed properly, dumbbell curls will tone the biceps region of a womans upper arm.. How to Do Seated Dumbbell Curls for Toning the Arms: Basic Motion. Begin while seated, arms hanging straight at sides, holding the weights. "Curl" the dumbbells up.. Keep your upper arms in a vertical position. Do not press your elbows into your sides, but also do not allow your arms to flare out away from your sides either.. Just let the upper portion hang naturally as your elbow bends (flexes). As you bring the dumbbells up, your palms should be facing forward, then coming towards you. Thus, in the start position, the palms are facing forward.. How high should you bring up the weights? This isnt about bring the weights up as high as possible. Its about imposing a work stimulus on the biceps muscles.. This is easily accomplished by bringing the dumbbells up high enough so that theyre a little bit higher than your breasts.. You do not need to ...
In addition to increased collaboration and communication, benefits include a reduction in treatment expenses. Duplicate tests, the time involved to obtain missing health information, the cost to print, mail, scan, or fax health records, and time on the phone verifying their delivery are all eliminated. According to one study, this equates to a $17,160 annual reduction in expenses. That money can instead be used to pay for new testing and diagnosis technology for the physician office, lab, or hospital ...

The exchange of accurate, complete and timely information between hospitals and nursing homes can be complicated when older adults transfer from one place to another," said Greg Alexander, associate professor in the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and lead researcher of this study. "Ultimately, we want to facilitate a way for staff members to communicate safely and securely about patients health. We want to prepare nursing homes to communicate externally as well as internally so that care transitions smoothly and patients have better health outcomes.". Alexander and his colleagues assessed the HIE readiness of 16 nursing homes, which involved evaluating the wireless Internet capabilities of the facilities and other existing infrastructure, such as computers, scanners and copiers. With funding from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the researchers helped the facilities purchase the infrastructure they lacked so they would be ready to implement the technology. The researchers ...

High angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) is a diffusion weighted MRI technique that overcomes some of the decisive limitations of its predecessor diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the areas of composite nerve fiber structure. Despite the advantages, HARDI raises several issues: complex modeling of the data, non-intuitive and computationally demanding visualization, inability to interactively explore and transform the data etc. To overcome these drawbacks, we present a novel, multi-field visualization framework that adopts the benefits of both DTI and HARDI. By applying a classification scheme based on HARDI anisotropy measures, the most suitable model per imaging voxel is automatically chosen. This classification allows simplification of the data in areas with single fiber bundle coherence. To accomplish fast and interactive visualization for both HARDI and DTI modalities, we exploit the capabilities of modern GPUs for glyph rendering and adopt DTI fiber tracking in suitable regions. ...

By Tyler Murphy/518Life. 1. To start the lunge, find an area with ample room. The space in front of you should be at least equal to your height. To begin, stand straight, arms down, head facing forward, with your feet hip-width apart. Relax your shoulders and keep the chin up.. 2. Step forward with one leg, lowering the hips but keeping them even. The forward foot should land with the knee directly above it, forming a right angle with the leg. Dont overextend your foot ahead of the knee or bend the joint past the ankle. Your back foot rolls forward onto the toes. The back knee should end up below your hips pointing at the ground with the calf parallel to the floor, forming another right angle.. 3. Push off the forward leg using the heel and pull back to the starting position. Keep your posture straight and try not to let your hips sway. Alternate legs and repeat the exercise.. 4. Strive to complete three sets with 20 alternating lunges for each. Remember to always engage your core - the ...
One eye cannot tell distance ( or 3D ) just by looking at an object. Two eyes in a figuration that humans and some other animals have, that is both eyes facing forward, will each give to the brain a slightly different scene to the brain. The brain can then use this information to interpret, with experience, as we grow older from a baby onwards, closer objects from those farther away. This is called binocular vision. One eye, by moving side to side, can send 2D images to the brain which will attempt to enterpret as 3D ...

A virtually transparent magnetic layer is included as an additional layer in a color negative film. Information exchange between various users of the film--such as (for example) the film manufacturer, the camera user, the dealer and photofinisher--is carried via plural longitudinal magnetic tracks on the film that begin and end in individual frames. Each track is dedicated to the writing and reading of a predetermined set of parameters related to the corresponding frame. The photofinisher-dedicated tracts fill the exposed image area of each frame. The camera-dedicated tracks lie along the edges of the film between the film perforations, the perforations being widely spaced for this purpose. All data is recorded on the film using a novel self-clocking code which is completely self-clocking, in order to provide automatic data synchronization between the various users without requiring that any of them to transport the film at the same speed or even at a uniform speed when reading and writing.

The West Virginia Health Information Network (WVHIN) has released a new online tool for medical providers to submit a provider connectivity readiness assessment survey online at http://www.wvhin.org. The provider connectivity readiness assessment survey will be used to provide the WVHIN with information about providers organizations and how utilizing the Health Information Exchange would benefit processes of care. "The provider connectivity readiness assessment survey is the starting point for providers interested in becoming a participant in the WVHINs Health Information Exchange," said Amber Nary, WVHIN Business Development Manager. "The survey helps the WVHIN understand the providers connectivity goals, baseline their EHR system capability to connect to the WVHIN and to gather general information about their organization." Currently, critically important patient health information is often fragmented and residing in many different electronic health record (EHR) systems that do not ...
East Meadow, NY - December 16, 2009 -A new health information system that will enable patients medical records to be shared electronically with hospitals, nursing homes and doctors offices across Long Island was activated today and demonstrated at a news conference at NuHealth System-NUMC.. The new information system, called the Long Island Patient Information Exchange (LIPIX), is now accessible at NuHealth System-NUMC, hospitals across the North Shore-LIJ Health System, South Nassau Communities Hospital, Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation, Cold Spring Hills Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation and Broadlawn Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.. As the New York metropolitan areas first independent health information exchange to electronically transfer live data across multiple unaffiliated health care organizations, LIPIX enables physicians to securely access their patients medical records from 25 major hospitals and long-term care facilities throughout Long ...

As demand for higher quality care continues, so too grows the demand for healthcare IT tools and systems. Add to that the Bush Administrations directive of having an electronic health record (EHR) for every American by 2014, and the drive towards automated workflows seems to have serious legs.. The push for EHRs is being felt nationwide as organizations struggle with how best to develop and participate in regional health information networks and health information exchanges. However, even as these new frontiers have created opportunities for products and services, they have also illuminated the barriers to data sharing across corporate borders.. As competition intensifies in an industry ripe with opportunity, the healthcare IT marketplace continues to see consolidation through acquisitions and mergers of well-known companies. In addition, emerging companies, many of which are new ventures led by industry veterans, continue to challenge the status quo with innovative products and ...
EMR integration enables a treating doctor to enter a virtual physician portal to review medical records. The doctor can also perform computerized physician order entry, or CPOE, of his or her treatment orders. When a patient is hospitalized, other departments within the hospital system can access this information and perform their designated functions. Since the information is typed, not handwritten, there is no worry of misinterpretation of unclear handwriting ...
There are potentially some serious difficulties that rural providers and small hospitals will have being able to fund these projects within their limited resources, considering that the incentive payments will barely, if at all, cover the costs of implementation. I fear that billions of taxpayer dollars will pass right through the hands of hospitals and physicians and go straight to the bottom line of health IT vendors. Healthcare providers could end up having a very hard time maintaining the meaningful use of their EHRs with a dwindling revenue stream. The CBO estimated in 2008 that EHR implementation costs for hospitals amount to approximately $14,500 per bed for implementation. Annual operating costs amount to $2,700 per bed per year. For physician groups, the CBO reported that total implementation costs for office-based EHRs ranged from $25,000 to $45,000 per physician, with annual operating, licensing, and maintenance costs ranging between $3,000 and $9,000 per physician. These figures are ...
