(Aspect 3) 9. Dr. Smith said that "electronic medical records have entirely changed the dynamics of the healthcare industry. Digitization of information has not only eliminated the conventional, error prone, documentation techniques but also have aided in increasing the ease of accessibility."(CureMD).
Sydni Werksman's comment, April 1, 2014 11:32 AM
(Aspect 3) 10. Having the electronic medical records makes life a whole lot easier because people do not have to keep inputting the same medical information over and over again each time they visit the doctor. This procedure does not take a lot of time either and it takes less time away from a doctors job.

(Aspect 3) 5. Paper records used in clinics and community health centers will have many challenges to health care providers. They will not have access to a patients important medical information to provide safe and effective treatment. It affects patients who have switched health care providers if they happened to move somewhere and they will not be able to access the information on that patient or patients.

(Aspect 3) 6. The new system of electronic medical records will improve care of patients.and safety. The information is typed making it much more legible than handwritten medical records it helps to reduce confusion especially with medication and dosage amount.

Aspect 3. The transition is being changed to that records are required to be in electronic format instead of paper format. The benefit of this new system is that it saves time and money and increases proficiency. It comes to the administrative labor costs of entering, filing, and storing medical records (Lucci/ Patient confidentiality).

6. A vaccine that makes an immune system response powerful enough to destroy a model AID virus in mice. When the vaccine enters the body it zeros in on a unique receptor in the immune system can create unprecedented T cell responses to HIV(Robert Herriman\globalispatch.com). Receptor involved is CD4O it uses a unique form of its natural binding protein. CD4OL makes important immune cells called dendritc cells to be aware of HIV proteins.

3. A toxin called melittin is discovered in bee venom. Researchers used nanoparticle technology to find the virus. Particles smaller than HIV were transfered with bee venom and was able to target HIV. Doing this scientists believe this will destroy the virus because it is not protected it has to have a protective coat, and a double layered membrane (Healthindia.com/Is there an HIV vaccine on its way?).

5. A new gene that can restrain the HIV virus from growing after entering the body. Scientists allowed the HIV virus to two seperate lines of human cells. And then they imported the MX2 gene along with HIV and on another line they didn't . The line that had the MX2 gene on it showed the virus stopped replicating.

1. A woman's body reacted to her HIV infection by creating antibodies (called broadly neutralising antibodies). They are capable of destroying many strains of HIV across the world. A research team duplicated the antibodies by cloning them and tested them in a multiple experiments. In the laboratory to elucidate the pathway followed by her immune system to make these potent antibodies(HIV/AIDS news/New research on HIV neutralising antibodies). This group of researchers has been able to find out how this happened.

(Aspect 3) 7. This woman went to the doctors office and had to fill out all the usual information you usually have to fill out when you go to the doctors office. After she was finished the doctor had to record her information into the new system. The woman was wondering what was the point of her filling all that information out when she could have just told her doctor that information. With this new system not many people understand how to use it so there would have to be some practice involved to under stand how it works.

(Aspect 3) 8. If clinical decision-making is made on the basis of data supplied by patients and documented in the EMR, how can clinicians be sure that such data is complete, correct and valid?(Hopkins/EMR). Clinicians are not very sure if this system will work because they are worried about the concerns of validity or barriers t integrating it into care flow?

(Aspect 3) 3. To find out if this new system works scientists observed 100 doctor doctor patient visits. During these studies doctors either used electronic or paper medical records. Clinicians who used electronic medical records spent 31% of the visit looking at a screen. But physicians who used paper medical records looked at them 9% of the visit. Patients did look more at the electronic version of medical records than the paper version whether they understood it or not.
Sydni Werksman's comment, March 31, 2014 6:33 PM
(Aspect 3) 4. John Luo M.D. a psychiatrist at the University of California Los Angeles Health was not involved with the study but he did say this. " The electronic medical records are not perfect. They have many advantages such as legibility, access from many sites, and others however in mental health care providers need to pay close attention to body language and other nonverbal cues of patients particularly in medication management, where this situation would most likely occur.

9. New gene therapy engineers a person's T cells so they can become defiant to human immunodeficiency virus. The process acts like molecular scissors to cut off an entry way for HIV so the virus cannot enter key immune cells. Scientists can safely and adequately engineer an HIV patient's own T cells to imitate naturally occuring resistance to the virus. A person had inherited the CCRs delta -32 gene mutation from one parent it gives the patient a head start on the treatment.

7. Genetically altering people with HIV cells to allow them to repel the virus that causes AIDS. In order to accomplish this the treatment focuses on a particular gene and disables it. Cells were removed and then they were treated and then transfered back into their bloodstreams through an intravenous line. If cells were able to work to get rid of the virus patients would not have to use antiviral drugs. Editing the genes assisted in fighting some of the infection.
