Hospital Prices Grew Substantially Faster Than Physician Prices For Hospital-Based Care In 2007-14.

Evidence suggests that growth in providers' prices drives growth in health care spending on the privately insured.

RNA Structural Differentiation: Opportunities with Pattern Recognition.

Our awareness and appreciation of the many regulatory roles of RNA has dramatically increased in the past decade. This understanding, in addition to the impact of RNA in many disease states, has renewed interest in developing selective RNA-targeted small molecule probes. However, the fundamental guiding principles in RNA molecular recognition that could accelerate these efforts remain elusive. While high-resolution structural characterization can provide invaluable insight, examples of well-characterized RN...

Electronic healthcare records and data quality.

This paper is based on Victoria Charnock's MA dissertation carried out as part of her Masters in Leadership and Management in Healthcare at the University of Salford and supervised by Professor Hardiker.

A Survey Of Americans With High-Deductible Health Plans Identifies Opportunities To Enhance Consumer Behaviors.

Most high-deductible health plan (HDHP) enrollees do not engage in consumer behaviors such as price shopping. Why not? We surveyed 1,637 Americans in HDHPs-which can be linked to health savings accounts (HSAs) but usually are not-about factors that may predict, facilitate, or impede HDHP enrollees' engagement in consumer behaviors. We found that having an HSA was associated with saving for future care, high financial literacy was associated with comparing prices and quality, and high confidence in talking w...
