Although use of the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is increasing nationally, it remains unclear whether it can help contain healthcare costs and improve quality. In the context of 2 primary care physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs), we tested the hypothesis that AWVs can improve healthcare costs and clinical quality.
LGBT populations require expanded access to healthcare that meets their unique needs. This article presents the primary findings of a training and technical assistance needs assessment conducted with healthcare organizations in geographically diverse areas of the United States to help determine gaps in LGBT health familiarity, preparedness, comfort, and practices.
We evaluated the Intermittent Upwelling Hypothesis (IUH) in Shanks and Morgan (Shanks and Morgan 2018), henceforth S&M. We presented five expectations, which must be true if the hypothesis is correct. We tested each of these expectations against available published results and, as part of this analysis, we reanalyzed data from Broitman et al. (Broitman et al. 2008). We concluded that available data do not support any of the five expectations and, hence, the IUH was not supported. Menge and Menge (this iss...
Colorectal cancer screening by fecal immunochemical test (FIT) reduces the burden of colorectal cancer. However, effectiveness relies on annual adherence, which presents challenges for clinic staff and patients.
Quantitating the health effects of air pollution is important for understanding the benefits of environmental regulations. Using the China Urban Household Survey (UHS) Database, this paper estimated the effect of air pollution exposure on household healthcare expenditure. To address potential endogeneity concerns, we performed household healthcare expenditure regressions using an instrumental variables (IV) strategy based on spatial air pollution spillovers. Our research revealed that a 1% increase in yearl...
Depression in patients with cancer has been associated with increased annual health care use and costs relative to nondepressed patients. Little is known of the potential cost savings associated with receipt of mental health treatment. This study evaluated the association between number of mental health visits and annual health care costs in patients with cancer and comorbid major depression.
Biotherapeutics are a promising class of molecules in drug discovery, but they are often limited to extracellular targets due to their poor cell penetration. High-throughput cell penetration assays are required for the optimization of biotherapeutics for enhanced cell penetration. We developed a HaloTag-based assay called the ChloroAlkane Penetration Assay (CAPA), which is quantitative, high-throughput, and compartment-specific. We demonstrate the ability of CAPA to profile extent of cytosolic penetration w...
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that is widespread throughout the US population and disproportionately affects children. This literature review aimed to identify recent information regarding the economic burden of pediatric asthma in the US. MEDLINE, EMBASE, Econlit, and PsycINFO databases and gray literature sources were searched from January 2012 to January 2018 to capture relevant publications. Publications reporting on healthcare resource utilization and/or healthcare costs of pediatric asthma w...
Healthcare personnel are at high risk for exposure to influenza by direct and indirect contact, droplets and aerosols, and by aerosol generating procedures. Information on air and surface influenza contamination is needed to assist in developing guidance for proper prevention and control strategies. To understand the vulnerabilities of healthcare personnel, we measured influenza in the breathing zone of healthcare personnel, in air and on surfaces within a healthcare setting, and on filtering facepiece resp...
The rigorous evaluation of simulation in healthcare to improve resuscitations and team functioning can be challenging. Statistical process control (SPC) charts present a unique methodology to enable statistical rigor when evaluating simulation. This article presents a brief overview of SPC charts and its advantages over traditional before and after methodologies, followed by an exemplar using SPC to evaluate an in situ team training program with embedded interprofessional education sessions.
Healthcare systems are facing persistent challenges, such as dealing with an ageing population, related increases in chronic diseases and healthcare costs facilitated by technological progress. The authors argue that the boundaries of optimisation are being reached and a more fundamental change or transition is necessary. The purpose of this paper is to explore the contours of this transition in the Netherlands. The authors do this from the perspective of healthcare organisations that have participated in t...
In recent years we indeed have witnessed an increasing demand on healthcare services coupled with spiraling healthcare costs forcing us towards identifying factors and interventions leading to greater healthcare efficiency.
This study aimed to identify differences in perceptions between healthcare and non-healthcare personnel when it comes to wearing scrubs in non-healthcare settings.
Ramsar, in the north of Iran by the Caspian Sea, has been known for the highest natural radiation background on Earth due to the local geology and hydrogeology. The residents and visitors use the hot springs that distribute the natural radionuclides especially Ra and its decay products in the areas. Many studies have been undertaken to measure the absorbed dose rate in Ramsar's air, however, no survey has been done to assess public internal exposure from ingestion of natural radionuclides, such as, a broad ...
The emergence of immune-modulating drugs such as biologics has altered the treatment landscape for psoriasis. However, their use presents high financial costs to patients and healthcare systems. Patient demographic and socioeconomic status may influence adherence to biologic medications and usage of healthcare resources. Areas covered: We performed a systematic literature review to summarize the available evidence pertaining to biologic medication adherence and resource use. PubMed was searched using the te...
This article presents the evolution of an independently developed research project to gather time data from hospital and health care system risk managers to establish an objective, justifiable means of determining necessary staffing levels to support risk management activities and department functions. The authors relied on the data submitted by study participants and did not independently audit the numbers provided.
The survival of pathogenic organisms in the healthcare environment plays a major role in acquiring healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
Wound management is a notable healthcare and financial burden, accounting for >$10 billion in annual healthcare spending in the United States. A multidisciplinary approach involving orthopaedic and plastic surgeons, wound care nursing, and medical and support staff is often necessary to improve outcomes. Orthopaedic surgeons must be familiar with the fundamental principles and evidenced-based concepts for the management of acute and chronic wounds. Knowledge of surgical dressings, negative pressure wound th...
