An improved understanding of patients' perceived needs for medical services for low back pain (LBP) will enable healthcare providers to better align service provision with patient expectations, thus improving patient and health care system outcomes. Thus, we aimed to identify the existing literature regarding patients' perceived needs for medical services for LBP.
Physician-staffed helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) in Norway are an adjunct to existing search and rescue services.

We conducted a cross-sectional study to assess the association between healthcare system factors and death from acute myocardial infarction (AMI), in terms of access (distance to the hospital, mode of transportation), availability (emergency medical services, hospitals), and capability (emergency medical services' 12-lead electrocardiogram capability, continuous percutaneous coronary intervention [PCI] and cardiothoracic surgical services), after accounting for individual and environmental factors.
Immunohistology is essential to the practice of modern surgical and cytopathology. There are 3 major types of immunohistologic services provided in clinical practice: traditional immunohistochemistry, morphometric analysis of tumor immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence. Proper Current Procedural Terminology coding for these services has been updated to reflect current medical practice.

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are groups of healthcare providers responsible for quality of care and spending for a defined patient population. The elimination of low-value medical services will improve quality and reduce costs and, therefore, ACOs should actively work to reduce the use of low-value services. We set out to identify ACO characteristics associated with implementation of strategies to reduce overuse.
Some patients calling ambulance services (known as Emergency Medical Services internationally) are not transported to hospital. In England, national ambulance quality indicators show considerable variation in non-transport rates between the ten large regional ambulance services. The aim of this study was to explain variation between ambulance services in two types of non-transport: discharge at scene and telephone advice.
Hip fracture is a common and morbid condition, affecting a patient population with significant medical co-morbidities.
