I need your help. I’m trying to figure out how to get rid of something that’s terribly broken in our process of taking care of patients, and I can’t do it alone. It’s time to kill the referrals process, get rid of them altogether. Every day, a huge proportion of the messages we receive through […]Continue Reading ...
In a nationally representative study, researchers found considerable variation in the rates of hip fractures across US nursing home facilities.Continue Reading ...
I recently ran across a wide-ranging blog, “Getting More From Les,” written by suburban Chicago pathologist Lester Raff, MD. I was amused by his tongue-in-cheek take on pathologists like him “giving (prostate) cancer” to patients. Actually, giving them prostate cancer diagnoses.

It turns out that a lot of people really like knowing in advance what’s in store for them behind the exam room door. For me, personally, I’ve always found the unknown of it kind of exciting, a bit of a thrill — What will I find in here today? What brings you here today? One […]Continue Reading ...
July three, 2017 Researchers on the College of Melbourne have demonstrated a solution to come across nuclear spins in molecules non-invasively, offering a brand new software for biotechnology and fabrics science. Essential analysis in medication and biology depends on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, however till now, it’s been restricted in spatial solution and usually […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers remotely monitor subjects participating in a study at the WSU Sleep and Performance Research Center at WSU Spokane. Credit: WSU Washington State University researchers have discovered a genetic variation that predicts how well people perform certain mental tasks when they are sleep deprived. Their research shows that individuals with a particular variation of the […]Continue Reading ...
“I’d like to think of regulatory reform in terms of painting a house … Typically, repainting needs to occur every few years, and before you do it, you need to strip the layers of paint underneath” — Seema Verma, administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, announcing the agency’s “Patients Over Paperwork” initiative.
