6 benefits of integrating ICD-10 codes | PhysBizTech | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 in October 2014 goes hand in hand with the goal of healthcare reform to improve quality and decrease the cost of care. With more than 171,000 codes as compared to just 17,849 in ICD-9, ICD-10 will provide a much more accurate method of quantifying the level of care. The transition will have a far-reaching impact on all populations of healthcare organizations, including physicians. - See more at: http://www.physbiztech.com/best-practices/technology/6-benefits-integrating-icd-10-codes#sthash.zRnL1ZpN.dpuf

Moving the Worksite Health Promotion Profession Forward

Abstract

Standards in any profession are adopted to assure that the individuals hired are adequately trained and the programs that they oversee are of the highest quality. Worksite health promotion should be no different from any other field. A review of the research conducted by experts in worksite health promotion is examined, along with an assessment of skills needed to ensure that wellness programs are effective and employees, their families, and even their communities are educated on the ways to best prevent chronic diseases and occupational incidences through healthy and safe behaviors. This article is consistent with Health Promotion Practice’s mission and focuses on the exploration of the processes used to plan effective worksite health promotion programs, and it suggests initial discussions on whether these processes should become standards for professionals in the worksite health promotion field.

A New Index Measures Impact Pharma Has on Infectious Diseases

A New Index Measures Impact Pharma Has on Infectious Diseases | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

The pharmaceutical industry regularly boasts that its efforts to develop treatments for infectious diseases in poor nations are making a difference. But for those wondering how to gauge those efforts, a new metric has been created.

The Global Health Impact Index measures three factors: the need for several important drugs for three specific infectious diseases: tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and malaria; the effectiveness of the available treatments; and the number of people who can access those drugs. The rankings estimate the amount of death and disability the drugs are alleviating.

Infographic: Modern physicians go mobile

Infographic: Modern physicians go mobile | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it

Mobile is all the rage with physicians today, even inspiring new lab coats to accommodate their multiple devices.

Three out of four physicians are using mobile apps at work, according to a 2014 report by MedData Group. There are now more than 10,000 apps available in the healthcare category, as physicians use mobile to save time, lower costs, and improve their quality of care.

With "three screen use" (tablets, smartphone and PCs) becoming the norm to help physician's research new technology and access specialty-quality content, we wanted to know what the most important app features are for physicians. We conducted a survey to find out which functionalities were most important to them when using mobile apps to access their Elsevier journal content. This infographic includes results from that survey.

Methods

Our goal was to create a survey that covered many specialties, Elsevier titles, and competitor analysis. We received over 160 responses from around the world, including users from Scotland, India, Egypt and the Ukraine. They identified four key areas for improvement, and we will use these results to benchmark performance over time. This survey also complimented qualitative data that was gathered from user interviews.

Summary of results

  • Physicians are 250 percent more likely to own a tablet than other consumers, and 76 percent of physicians use mobile at work to access work related content. They say it helps them save time, lower costs and generally offer improved quality of care.
  • The top three uses of journal mobile apps are:
    • The ability to read journals anytime, anywhere, with or without online access.
    • The ability to view and share images, including the pinch and zoom feature to get a closer look.
    • To access and download PDFs.
  • Medical journals remain the No. 1 source of information for physicians, and apps bring new advantages to the table and enhance the journal experience. For instance, mobile apps allow the user to watch videos or "pinch and zoom" on an image or chart/graph for a better look. The app also allows easy access to archival issues and includes search to physicians can read up on a particular topic that is of interest to them. With mobile apps, physicians can take notes and highlight articles, then share those articles and notes with colleagues, either via email or through social media. The ability to add rich interactive content, such as videos is another major advantage over traditional paper formats.

The infographic

We created this infographic to help physicians who haven't made the switch understand why their colleagues are using mobile—and for those who do to get the most out of their mobile app experience.

Cost-Effectiveness of a Community-Based Weight Control Intervention Targeting a Low-Socioeconomic Status

Introduction. The objective of our study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a community-based intervention designed to improve physical activity levels and dietary intake and to reduce diabetes risk in a largely Hispanic population residing along the U.S.-Mexico border. Method. We forecasted disease outcomes, quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) gained, and lifetime costs associated with actual and projected attainment of 2% and 5% weight loss taking a societal cost perspective. We extrapolated changes in beverage calorie consumption between baseline and 6-month follow-up to attain projected weight loss measures. Outcomes were projected 5, 10, and 20 years into the future and discounted at a 3.0% rate. Results. The incremental cost-effectiveness ratio was $57,430 and $61,893, respectively, per QALY gained when compared with usual care for the 2% and 5% weight loss scenarios. The intervention was particularly cost-effective for morbidly obese participants. Cost-effectiveness improves when using 3-year weight loss projections based on changes in sugar-sweetened beverage caloric consumption to $49,478 and $24,092 for the 2% and 5% weight loss scenarios. Conclusions. This analysis demonstrates that a culturally sensitive community-based weight loss and maintenance intervention can be cost-effective even when healthy weight individuals participate.

Socioeconomic Deprivation and the Incidence of 12 Cardiovascular Diseases in 1.9 Million Women and Men: Implications for Risk Prediction and Prevention

Socioeconomic Deprivation and the Incidence of 12 Cardiovascular Diseases in 1.9 Million Women and Men: Implications for Risk Prediction and Prevention | Co-creation in health | Scoop.it
Background Recent experimental evidence suggests that socioeconomic characteristics of neighbourhoods influence cardiovascular health, but observational studies which examine deprivation across a wide range of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are lacking. Methods Record-linkage cohort study of 1.93 million people to examine the association between small-area socioeconomic deprivation and 12 CVDs. Health records covered primary care, hospital admissions, a myocardial infarction registry and cause-specific mortality in England (CALIBER). Patients were aged ≥30 years and were initially free of CVD. Cox proportional hazard models stratified by general practice were used. Findings During a median follow-up of 5.5 years 114,859 people had one of 12 initial CVD presentations. In women the hazards of all CVDs except abdominal aortic aneurysm increased linearly with higher small-area socioeconomic deprivation (adjusted HR for most vs. least deprived ranged from 1.05, 95%CI 0.83–1.32 for abdominal aortic aneurysm to 1.55, 95%CI 1.42–1.70 for heart failure; I 2 = 81.9%, τ 2 = 0.01). In men heterogeneity was higher (HR ranged from 0.89, 95%CI 0.75–1.06 for cardiac arrest to 1.85, 95%CI 1.67–2.04 for peripheral arterial disease; I 2 = 96.0%, τ 2 = 0.06) and no association was observed with stable angina, sudden cardiac death, subarachnoid haemorrhage, transient ischaemic attack and abdominal aortic aneurysm. Lifetime risk difference between least and most deprived quintiles was most marked for peripheral arterial disease in women (4.3% least deprived, 5.8% most deprived) and men (4.6% least deprived, 7.8% in most deprived); but it was small or negligible for sudden cardiac death, transient ischaemic attack, abdominal aortic aneurysm and ischaemic and intracerebral haemorrhage, in both women and men. Conclusions Associations of small-area socioeconomic deprivation with 12 types of CVDs were heterogeneous, and in men absent for several diseases. Findings suggest that policies to reduce deprivation may impact more strongly on heart failure and peripheral arterial disease, and might be more effective in women.

The 6 questions every good doctor should ask you

The list of questions is short, but actually answering them probably isn't. These are questions that get at some very fundamental decisions about what makes life worth living — and at what point a patient might decide to stop fighting a disease.

But as Volandes, who also founded a group dedicated to advanced end-of-life planning, argues, they are absolutely necessary questions to answer — even when you're perfectly healthy.

"The best time is when the patient is feeling great, when they have their wits about them, and not critically ill," Volandes recently told HealthLeaders. "This is not a one-time conversation. Doctors should be having these routinely. At a minimum, with anyone over 65, with a critical illness. [Otherwise] it's depriving them of having their wishes honored. We are so compartmentalized that we think we have to pass it off to the oncologist or cardiologist. No, this is a fundamental part of your job."
