Care of dying review shows shortcomings in palliative care

Most hospitals have not put in place some of the fundamental elements needed to help ensure a “good” death for patients, such as seven day access to specialist palliative care and mandatory training for staff caring for dying patients, an audit led by the Royal College of Physicians has found.

It’s a new day in medicine. The computer-driven “genomic revolution” -- coupled with the growth of electronic and personal health records – is beginning to impact the way consumers, physicians and health care organizations make decisions about your care. The Buck Institute for Research on Aging hosted a Community Seminar featuring Sean Mooney, PhD, an Associate Professor at the Buck Institute, and Nigam Shah, MBBS, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics Research at Stanford University Medical Center. Stay ahead of the curve; learn about personalized medicine and the value of “big data” while listening to their presentations. Dr. Mooney's presentation is first, and Dr. Shah's presentation begins at 27:00.

Wilderness Medical Society Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia

Exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) typically occurs during or up to 24 hours after prolonged physical activity, and is defined by a serum or plasma sodium concentration below the normal reference range of 135 mEq/L. It is also reported to occur in individual physical activities or during organized endurance events conducted in austere environments in which medical care is limited or often not available, and patient evacuation to definitive care is often greatly delayed. Rapid recognition and appropriate treatment are essential in the severe form to ensure a positive outcome. Failure in this regard is a recognized cause of event-related fatality. In an effort to produce best practice guidelines for EAH in the austere environment, the Wilderness Medical Society convened an expert panel. The panel was charged with the development of evidence-based guidelines for management of EAH. Recommendations are made regarding the situations when sodium concentration can be assessed in the field and when these values are not known. These recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks/burdens for each parameter according to the methodology stipulated by the American College of Chest Physicians.

What the headline data show is that 4.4 million payments totaling $3.5bn (£2.2bn; €2.8bn) were made to more than 546 000 physicians and 1360 teaching hospitals in the last five months of 2013.

Obamacare: what the Affordable Care Act means for patients and physicians

The Affordable Care Act’s core achievement is to make all Americans insurable, by requiring insurers to accept all applicants at rates based on population averages regardless of health status. The act also increases coverage by allowing states to expand Medicaid (the social healthcare program for families and people with low income and resources) to cover everyone near the poverty line, and by subsidizing private insurance for people who are not poor but who do not have workplace coverage. The act allows most people to keep the same kind of insurance that they currently have, and it does not change how private insurance pays physicians and hospitals. Although the act falls short of achieving truly universal coverage, nine million uninsured people have received coverage so far. Market reforms have not hurt the insurance industry’s profitability, prices for individual insurance have been lower than expected, and government costs so far have been less than initially projected. The act expands several ongoing pilot programs in Medicare that reform how doctors and hospitals are paid, but it does not directly change how private insurers pay healthcare providers. Nevertheless, it has set into motion market dynamics that are affecting medical practice, such as limiting insurance networks to fewer providers and requiring patients to pay for more treatment costs out of pocket. In response, many hospitals and physicians are forming closer and larger affiliations. Further time and study are needed to learn whether these evolutionary changes will achieve their goals without harming the doctor-patient relationship.
