Implementing EHR software and other health technology tools in the exam room may prove to be a burden for some medical providers, but patients certainly stand to benefit from the adoption of digital resources and medical apps. While physicians settle into the electronic charting routine, patients should familiarize themselves with the new resources changing patient care.

Electronic health records. If your doctor uses EHR software, it means you have an electronic health record containing your past and current medical history. This includes everything from demographic information and vital signs to diagnoses, medications, and test results. By opening the door to a wider range of health applications, medical devices, and patient monitoring software, EHR systems allow doctors to provide more comprehensive care.

Personal health records. In contrast to EHRs, which are maintained by healthcare providers, personal health records are computerized documents created and controlled by each patient. To give your doctors access to your compiled health information, you can give them permission to view your PHR online, print it from the website, or carry a copy of the record with you on a USB. Some PHR companies also provide medical apps for smartphones, allowing patients to access their health record on-the-go.

Patient portals. Online portals are secure websites that usually interface with a provider’s EHR software. As a patient, the portal is one of the tools that you will benefit most from directly. By logging into the online portal provided by your doctor, for example, you can typically request appointments, submit refill requests, send secure messages to your physician, and view lab results or visit summaries. If your doctor’s practice has an online portal, find out what you can use it for, and start taking advantage of the benefits.

Electronic prescribing. E-prescribing software allows doctors to write digital prescriptions and send them to a patient’s pharmacy electronically. E-prescriptions help reduce dosage errors and can prevent drug allergy interactions. Meanwhile, patients are more likely to take prescribed medications, since all they have to do is go to their pharmacy to pick up them up. Find out if your doctor e-prescribes and ask that your favorite – most convenient – pharmacy be added to your health record.

Telemedicine. Telemonitoring is a growing trend with larger healthcare organizations and can help reduce the cost of healthcare and prevent hospital readmissions. For patients who don’t necessarily need to be in the hospital, doctors can provide monitoring equipment to transmit data automatically to their EHR and identify early warning signs of a worsening condition. Check with your doctor about mobile applications that perform similar functions for monitoring things like vital signs and blood pressure.

One of the country’s largest medical collections companies, Accretive Health, is facing a civil lawsuit in Minnesota, after it was alleged that the company violated state and federal debt collection laws and patient privacy protections. Accretive is accused of using unorthodox healthcare collections training methods and placing employees in hospital emergency rooms to demand payment from patients before receiving medical treatment.

Accretive employees, indistinguishable from hospital staff members, were allowed to help register patients and take down private health information, whereupon they would employ aggressive techniques to get patients to make an upfront payment. Documents released by the Minnesota attorney general’s office also show that Accretive collectors, calling themselves “financial counselors,” were instructed by management to stall patients trying to enter the emergency room until after they agreed to pay a prior balance. Doctors complained that intimidating collections tactics such as those were discouraging patients from seeking life-saving medical treatment.

As more and more hospitals face growing losses due to unpaid medical debts, they turn to companies like Accretive who promise to improve medical collections and increase revenue. To do so, hospital officials often agree to hand over some of their revenue cycle processes, including tasks like patient registration and scheduling. In Accretive’s case, however, HIPAA laws were violated when the company gave its collectors access to personal health information, such as medical diagnoses and treatment plans. That, coupled with the company’s aggressive healthcare collections training tactics, has led the Minnesota Department of Commerce to temporarily suspend Accretive’s debt collection license while the company undergoes investigation.

The Center for Human Reproduction, a infertility clinic in New York, NY reported today that they have discovered a link between women of African origin and lower IVF success rates. This is a consequence of a predisposition to autoimmune disease and it being a known cause of infertility. The CHR has released a number of reports related autoimmunity and its affect on female fertility. A report on the 14th of April was released highlighting research on the link between miscarriages and autoimmune disease.

## Original Release ##

May 03, 2011 (New York, NY) – In vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancy rates, also known as “IVF success rates” are related to specific genotypes and races/ethnicities, according to new research conducted by a New York City-based IVF center. It has long been known that IVF success rates differ amongst different races/ethnic groups. This new study suggests that predisposition to autoimmune disease may be the cause for these differences.

Despite general improvement in outcomes of fertility treatments, disparities between races/ethnicities have actually increased. Prevalence of infertility also differs in that African women experience infertility more frequently than Caucasians and Asians. Causes for these differences have remained largely unknown.

Toolbars seem to get a bad rap from many Internet users as they are seen as more of a nuisance than anything else. While some toolbars are thought to do nothing more than add clutter to a computer screen Microsoft hopes to change that reputation with the recent release of its new Bing Bar. The Bing Bar 7 comes with several upgrades and integrated features that Microsoft hopes will attract users who previously opposed toolbars.

Do you use a toolbar? Would you consider incorporating one into your medical website?

In a test market developed by us in Argentina, we have identified that executives hired by fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and retail tend to last longer in the companies that hired them that the average for the market. The test market was developed monitoring the duration in their companies of executives having started over 2.700 new jobs in a new company in the period 2002 to 2010, of which almost 400 where in the above mentioned sectors. The results of the investigation are shown in the following graph. To read the graph accordingly, you can see that at the point of 24 months after their first day at work, out of 2.131 executives that started 24 months prior to the point of measure, only 57% remained with their companies; while out of the 303 that started a new job with FMCG or retail companies, 63% where still with their companies.

 

Breaking down the 399 executives by how they got to their new companies, the research shows that those that were hired with the assistance of executive Search firms, had better duration measures tan those hired by the companies with no outside professional assistance, or through advertised firms.

 

Breaking down the information by function we observe that executives hired for positions in Administration and Finance last longer with their companies and that executives hired for the human resources areas have lasted much less with their companies.

 

Breaking down this same group of executives by age, we identified that while those executives under 30 last much less in the companies that hired them, in the analyzed sectors all executives above 30 have no significant duration in their new companies by 24 months after their first day in their new company.

 

Even though on the whole group, women stay on average in their new companies less than men, this is not the case in the FMCG and retail businesses, in which women stay slightly longer with their companies than men.

 

The following graph shows the evolution by which executives leave their companies. You can see that out of the 399 that started a new job in a FMCG or retail company, 33 left within the first 6 months in the company. Of the remaining 357, 32 left in months 6-12 from their starting date, and so on. The graph shows how the probabilities of executives leaving their new companies or being fired, decrease sharply after the moment when they have stayed for 24 months with their new companies.

A title tag which is sometimes referred to as a title element is an essential part of SEO. Of course, the overall content on your page will really help determine your ranking, but how carefully you create your title tag is not far behind in terms of importance.

What exactly is a title tag?

It is the text that describes or defines the title of your document. The title tag appears in three different places and is required for any document in the HTML or XHTML format.

Use title tags effectively for SEO, and improve your website’s search engine ranking.

Biomerix of Fremont, CA has received FDA clearance for its ventral hernia repair mesh. The mesh has two different sides, one covered with Biomerix Biomaterial, which promotes tissue ingrowth, and on the other side a resorbable protective film which minimizes tissue attachment of the viscera. The Biomerix Biomaterial mimics the natural extracellular matrix, consisting of a three-dimensional, open-cell, macroporous structure that selectively adsorbs plasma and proteins. This stimulates cells to migrate and attach to the material. Indications for the mesh are hernia repair, soft tissue deficiencies and temporary bridging of fascial defects. Press release: Biomerix Ventral Hernia Repair Mesh Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance… Company website: Biomerix…
