Contracts between health insurers and providers are private. By modelling this explicitly, we find the following. Insurers with bigger provider networks, pay providers higher fee-for-service rates. This makes it more likely that a patient is treated and hence health care costs and utilization increase with provider network size. Although providers are homogeneous, the welfare maximizing provider network can consist of two or more providers. Provider profits are positive whereas they would be zero with publi...
Several treatment options for spinal metastases exist, including multiple radiation therapy (RT) techniques: three-dimensional (3D) conventional RT (3D-RT), intensity-modulated RT (IMRT), and spine stereotactic radiosurgery (SSRS). Although data exist regarding reimbursement differences across regimens, differences in provider care delivery costs have yet to be evaluated. We quantified institutional costs associated with RT for spinal metastases, using a time-driven activity-based costing model.

Several options are available for frontline treatment of advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and treatment of relapsed HL, each with inherent advantages and disadvantages. Clinicians must balance risk with benefit for the individual patient. At the NCCN 2019 Annual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies, Dr. Ranjana H. Advani summarized the current frontline treatment options for advanced-stage HL and outlined novel and emerging agents that may be incorporated as therapy options for relapsed disease.
Electronic health records (EHRs) have become ubiquitous in orthopaedics. Although they offer certain benefits, they have been cited as a factor that can contribute to provider burnout. Little is known about the degree to which EHR adoption is associated with provider and practice characteristics or outpatient and surgical volume.
Despite the success of anti-VEGF therapy (VEGF: vascular endothelial growth factor) in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in the last decade, many unmet needs in AMD management remain. In order to improve patient eye health and relieve the burden on health systems, the development of new intervention options appears to be of great importance if they can delay or even prevent the progression of an early form into a late form. In the field of physical treatment for non-exudative AMD, there is ...
In medical practice, physicians are sometimes faced with patients who reject the gold-standard treatment for a condition. In this hypothetical clinical scenario, we present the case of a patient who refuses Mohs micrographic surgery for management of infiltrative basal cell carcinoma and instead requests off-label therapy with imiquimod. We discuss the treating dermatologist's options in response to this patient's request and the ethical considerations surrounding the case. We conclude that the physician ha...
Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) for PTSD is an emerging treatment of remarkable promise, but its efficacy and safety are still unclear. Our aim was to investigate the efficacy of VRET for individuals with PTSD, and to identify the potential moderating variables associated with interventions.

Patterned hair loss is common and can negatively impact quality of life. Patients often seek nonsurgical treatment options as a first-line measure to avoid undue risks and expense associated with surgery. This article discusses these noninvasive treatment options, with a focus on minoxidil, finasteride, dutasteride, spironolactone, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling, and oral supplements.
To examine inaccuracies in health plan provider directories and consider whether the machine-readable (MR) formats required of provider directories in the health insurance exchanges are more accurate than conventional directories and have the potential to improve directory accuracy in the future.
Financial burden for patients, providers, and payers can reduce access to physical therapy (PT) after total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

Several ongoing clinical trials are investigating novel therapies and combinations of existing therapies for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. One such trial, ERA 223, has shown that the combination of abiraterone plus radium-223 did not improve symptomatic skeletal event-free survival compared with abiraterone plus placebo. Furthermore, an increase in bone fractures was observed with the combination of abiraterone and radium-223 in the study, particularly in pa...
Forty-nine out of 50 states have implemented Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) to monitor controlled substance (CS) prescribing. PDMPs change health care provider behavior, but few studies have examined changes in CS prescription by health care provider type.
Leishmaniasis is a vector-borne neglected tropical disease which manifests as visceral leishmaniasis (VL), cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL), and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL). The current drugs are toxic, duration of treatment is long, there is regional variation in efficacy, and emergence of resistance is common. Areas covered: This manuscript is based on literature derived from PubMed and reviews the current and emerging medications for the treatment of leishmaniasis. A single dose of liposomal amphoteric...
Despite the importance of patient-provider trust identified in earlier research on tuberculosis (TB) care, there has been no in-depth exploration of its determinants and how it affects TB patient experiences. We conducted a constructivist grounded theory study to explore the process of patient-provider trust in the context of TB care. This study took place in Cape Town, South Africa, an urban setting with a high prevalence of TB, and where treatment for TB is provided free-of-charge. We used theoretical sam...
While antiretroviral therapy (ART) is essential to patients with HIV, there is substantial variation in adherence nationally. We assess how provider and practice factors contribute to successful HIV ART adherence.
The purpose of this study was to discuss the mental and physical effects of using music therapy with patients suffering with dementia. Like any type of therapy, there are guidelines for measuring the effects. Music therapy can be used as a substitute for pharmaceuticals with dementia patients. The earlier the diagnosis and the earlier treatment commences for dementia patients, the more likely the treatment will work. Music therapy can reach the part of the brain where we hold memories, which is why it is us...
Human tumors are still a major threat to human health and plant tumors negatively affect agricultural yields. Both areas of research are developing largely independent of each other. Treatment of both plant and human tumors remains unsatisfactory and novel therapy options are urgently needed.
Approximately 73% of US adults use YouTube, making it the most popular social media platform. Misinformation on social media is a growing concern; recent studies show a high proportion of misinformative health-related videos. Several studies on patient-provider communication and general health information seeking have been conducted. However, few studies to date have examined the potential association between patient-provider communication and health information seeking on specific social media platforms su...
The incidence of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is growing across sub-Saharan Africa and many healthcare systems are ill-equipped for this growing burden. Evidence suggests that healthcare providers may be underdiagnosing and undertreating ACS, leading to poor health outcomes. The goal of this study was to examine provider perspectives on barriers to ACS care in Tanzania in order to identify opportunities for interventions to improve care.
Globally, liver cancer is the most frequent fatal malignancy; in the United States, it ranks fifth. Patients are often diagnosed with liver cancer in advanced stages, contributing to its poor prognosis. Of all liver cancer cases, >90% are hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) for which chemotherapy and immunotherapy are the best options for therapy. For liver cancer patients, new treatment options are necessary. Use of natural compounds and/or nanotechnology may provide patients with better outcomes with lower s...
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune disease characterized by platelet destruction and reduced platelet production resulting in decreased platelet level and an increased risk of bleeding. Based on the immunologic mechanism of ITP, front line standard therapy consists of corticosteroids and intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG). If patients do not respond to the first-line treatment, or if continuous therapy is required, the disorder is called refractory ITP, and second-line therapy is indicated. This...
Pneumatic compression therapy is one of several options for the management of lymphedema. The lack of clarity around clinical outcomes, quality of life, cost of care, and its proper application as a function of lymphedema complexity limit its use in clinical practice. This is compounded by difficulties associated with insurance approval and uncertainty about the role of this modality in the treatment algorithm. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the healthcare economics and value of pneumatic compres...
