Jules Joseph Dejerine (1849-1917) became renowned for his many contributions to neurology, including his anatomical and anatomo-functional studies, particularly those in the field of language and the peripheral nervous system. A disciple of Vulpian and a rival of Charcot, Dejerine progressed rapidly in the academic world, reaching the peak of his career in 1911, when he was appointed to the chair of Nervous System Diseases at the Salpêtrière Hospital after defeating Pierre Marie (1853-1940), one of the mo...
The Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system is a high-volume provider of cancer care. Women are the fastest growing patient population using VA healthcare services. Quantifying the types of cancers diagnosed among women in the VA is a critical step toward identifying needed healthcare resources for women Veterans with cancer.
The purpose of this paper is to identify five quality improvement initiatives for healthcare system leaders, produced by such leaders themselves, and to provide some guidance on how these could be implemented.
A 60-year-old man was admitted to our hospital. He had mild tremor in his four extremities when supine or sitting, which was markedly exacerbated when standing. We diagnosed him with Machado-Joseph disease according to the genetic test. His tremor improved with clonazepam, trihexyphenidyl, and a rotigotine patch.
In this paper, I aim to demonstrate that the consequences of the current United States health insurance scheme on both physician and patient autonomy is dire. So dire, in fact, that the only moral solution is something other than what we have now. The United States healthcare system faces much criticism at present. But my focus is particular: I am interested in the ways in which insurance interferes with physician and patient autonomy. (I do not consider The Affordable Care Act much of a change in this aspe...
Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative disorders, namely of Machado-Joseph disease, an autosomal dominant late-onset polyglutamine ataxia that results from an unstable expansion of a CAG tract in the ATXN3 gene. The size of the CAG tract only partially explains age at onset, highlighting the existence of disease modifiers. Mitochondrial DNA haplogroups have been associated with clinical presentation in other polyglutamine disorders, constituting potent...
The migration of healthcare specialists from developing countries has increased in recent years. This has caused a rapid reduction in the access to and quality of healthcare services in such countries. The aim of this study is to evaluate the factors affecting the migration of specialist human resources in Iran's healthcare system.
We used in-depth interviews with a cohort of young adult gay men (YAGM) to provide a more detailed understanding of their current healthcare engagement, including experiences with the healthcare system, provider knowledge of healthcare needs, and desired provider characteristics.
The nature of an emergency is not predictable, and no two emergencies are alike. In response to this unpredictable nature, healthcare facilities across the nation have adopted a system of emergency codes to notify staff of an emergent situation, often without alerting patients and visitors to the crises. However, the system of emergency codes varies significantly within most states and even within healthcare coalition regions. This variation in codes leads to not only the potential for staff confusion, cons...
This paper presents the development and real-time testing of an automated expert diagnostic telehealth system for the diagnosis of 2 respiratory diseases, asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The system utilizes Android, Java, MATLAB, and PHP technologies and consists of a spirometer, mobile application, and expert diagnostic system. To evaluate the effectiveness of the system, a prospective study was carried out in 3 remote primary healthcare institutions, and one hospital in Bosnia and...
Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) or spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) is the most common type of autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA). Sleep disorders have been described as frequent non-motor symptoms in MJD, and with marked impairment on quality of life. However, few studies have evaluated the frequency and characteristics of sleep apnea in MJD.
Previous studies have shown relatively high rates of inappropriate referrals to pediatric orthopedic surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine the rate of inappropriate referrals in an egalitarian healthcare system. We reviewed all 400 referrals to our pediatric orthopedic surgery practice over a 2-year period and assessed the appropriateness of each based on the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines. A total 206 (52%) referrals were deemed appropriate. There is a high rate of inappropriate re...
In this article, we report on the Second Society for Simulation in Healthcare Research Summit held in 2017. This meeting succeeded the First Research Summit from 2011 with the goal of advancing the scope of healthcare simulation research. During the one and a half day summit, some of the world's leading experts in simulation, healthcare, and simulation in healthcare convened to discuss ideas about what research goals would be most beneficial to the healthcare simulation community, and what could be done to ...
The Marchildon and Sherar (2018) paper provides some useful insights: the role of primary care, improved approaches to physician compensation and the importance of accountability and governance. But their approach of focusing on doctors, including their compensation, misses the boat. Canada's healthcare system needs a major overhaul to improve integration and reward good performance for patient care going beyond medical practitioner compensation.
The goal of this study was to examine the association between available patient and clinical characteristics and healthcare utilization in a cohort of breast, lung, and colorectal cancer patients within a safety-net hospital system.
The objective of this study was to examine the rescheduling of hydrocodone-combination products (HCPs) and associated changes in prescriber patterns in an urban county healthcare system in Texas.
Dual healthcare system use is associated with higher rates of healthcare utilization, but the influence of rurality on this phenomenon is unclear. This study aimed to determine the extent to which rurality in the USA modifies the likelihood for acute healthcare use among veterans with heart failure (HF).
Marchildon and Sherar's (2018) "Doctors and Canadian Medicare" presents a specific dilemma for healthcare reform: the ability of physicians to negotiate ever-increasing incomes without reference to the consequences to healthcare costs or provincial budgeting. This commentary situates that discussion in the broader debate of the challenges to healthcare reform as exemplified by studies such as Paradigm Freeze (Lazar et al. 2013) and the ability of provincial medical associations to act as both system insider...
This article gives, first, a historical account of the action of capital in healthcare in contemporary Brazil and then introduces a debate on the dominance of finance ('financial dominance') in healthcare based on one case to examine: the hypertrophy of the structure for intermediation in private healthcare existing in Brazil, using the theses of José Carlos de Souza Braga as its principal reference. The article highlights the nebulous nature of what happens at the interface between the public and private ...
The burden on healthcare services in the world has increased substantially in the past decades. The quality and quantity of care have to increase to meet surging demands, especially among patients with chronic heart diseases. The expansion of information and communication technologies has led to new models for the delivery healthcare services in telemedicine. Therefore, mHealth plays an imperative role in the sustainable delivery of healthcare services in telemedicine. This paper presents a comprehensive re...
In hindsight, there have been unintended systemic consequences stemming from the traditional roles physicians have assumed and the structures within which they have been permitted to organize themselves. It is critical that the national discussion take account of this because we must reconcile ourselves to the current reality in which all other allied healthcare professionals are practising at "the top of their licence." Furthermore, the pace of technological change, especially the deciphering of the genome...
Over the next decade, there is a predicted shortage of nonmalignant hematologist to maintain the workforce in the United States. To address this, the American Society of Hematology described the creation of the healthcare systems-based hematologist (SBH). The role of SBH has the potential to provide high-value, cost-conscious care to the healthcare system. In 2011, an Anticoagulation and Bleeding Management Medical Directorship position for a SBH was created at our healthcare system. We described our 6-year...
Chang-Rae Lee's 2014 novel On Such a Full Sea uses the genre of speculative fiction to reflect on longstanding healthcare debates in the United States that have recently crystalized around the Affordable Care Act. The novel imagines the political economy of healthcare in a future America devastated by environmental illness. What kind of care is available and to whom? Who provides it? Who pays for it? What about distribution and access? The different healthcare systems governing each of three geo-social zone...
