inglesA colleague recently asked me my opinion about how to handle family emergencies (sick kid, snow day, daycare crisis) with a physician colleague vs. a staff member. I had to think hard about this. The members of our care teams — nurses, medical assistants, receptionists, and providers —are equal in deserving respect. So, on face value, I would say that physicians and staff should be treated the same — same expectations, same rules, same treatment.

MHE 02172 pg 17With Donald Trump as the new commander in chief, the healthcare industry is in the midst of many changes. In order to survive as a managed care organization, it’s important to stay on top of policy changes and reimbursement trends, such as those related to Medicare, Medicaid, and the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). Healthcare executives also need to know if trends, such as consumerism and consolidation, will continue as is or change course. Industry experts weigh in on what to watch as the year unfolds.

Managed careHealthcare dollars are tight, and payments to physicians and hospitals are increasingly being linked to health outcomes and patient satisfaction scores. There’s even a call from some payers to tie pharmaceutical payments to medication efficacy.

It seems reasonable to assume that, at some point, this trend will reach payers, too.

Many companies already hold executives accountable for financial performance, but extending that accountability to the health of members may not be far away.

Humana Inc. announced in May 2016, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, that it would be instituting a new payment model for executives that is tied to both company fiscal performance as well as the health outcomes of members. The company will tie 20% of executive bonuses to member health metrics in fiscal 2016, and the remainder will be based on whether Humana hits its financial targets.

Parceiros incentivam centros transplantadores a sistematizar dados sobre TMO com curso gratuito

 

3.CopaStar A informação sobre pacientes tratados e desfechos é fundamental para a pesquisa em qualquer doença. No caso das doenças cujo tratamento é o transplante de medula óssea, cujo avanço é recente, mas que tem apresentado grandes mudanças nos últimos 30 anos, essa coleta de informações é ainda mais crucial, inclusive por tratar-se de doenças cuja genética diferenciada de cada paciente, em cada canto do mundo, traz informações ainda mais relevantes para o diagnóstico e estabelecimento de tratamentos personalizados.

empathy 2I'm a little grumpy today. It was one of those days in clinic. Since it was the day after New Year's most specialty clinics were closed. Our office was open, so patients who had various symptoms and conditions managed by specialists were directed to our office. Our schedule maker forgot to schedule me a lunch break. The nurse's forwarded me messages that did not indicate a lot of critical thinking on their part. One patient who was fired by her psychiatrist informed me that both the psychiatrist's office and my office said that I would be able to take over prescribing her various controlled substances. It was the kind of day that made me wonder why anyone in their right mind would go into primary care.
