Non-publication of clinical trials has been a subject of controversy with critics asserting that when the results are not favorable, some industry-funded clinical trials do not get published. In this way, some believe the industry wrongfully protects a ‘bad’ product or drug. 
Researchers discover that results from more than a quarter of large clinical trials involving human participants are never published.

Medicare price cuts lead hospitals to reduce capacity and provide fewer services to the elderly. Hospitals do not appear to leave beds empty in response to Medicare price cuts. Instead, they appear to reduce their scale of operations by shutting down beds
The Affordable Care Act cuts Medicare price growth. But if hospitals respond by increasing the amount of care provided – by treating patients more intensely or hospitalizing more of them – the potential cost savings from price restraint may be lost.

“Many pharma marketers still underestimate both the opportunity and complexity of the mobile channel,” said VP of Research Monique Levy in the summary. “What’s clear is that patients are using these devices throughout the patient journey, for quick questions and deep research, and increasingly to actually manage their condition and care.”

With social media, mobile and internet an integral part of our daily lives, patient engagement at the digital level is critical to your medical facility’s success. Engaged healthcare is better healthcare not only for the patient, but also for your medical facility and staff.

Medical professionals who outsource their medical billing services to experienced billing companies find their patients are more satisfied with the process than those who do not.  Professional medical billers know the right codes and know how to maximize reimbursement from insurers which assists patients in reducing their out-of-pocket expenses. 
Patient satisfaction surveys show a direct relationship between overall patient satisfaction and the medical billing services of the medical care provider.

According to ACSIA1, long term care insurance costs are affordable, and can be adjusted depending on your needs, budget, and other preferences. The number one method to save on your policy is to buy one while you’re still young. Those who purchase a plan while at their 50s will find their premiums to be significantly lower than if they bought at 65.
What naysayers fail to realize is that the longer you live, the more likely you’ll require long term care services.

Treating injuries is a $163 billion problem in the US.  Leaving aside the enormous and largely neglected opportunity to reduce costs by avoiding injuries in the first place (e.g., injury prevention programs), are there any other aspects of trauma care that could be rendered more efficient?

Sharp has developed a Health Support Chair to let the user relax while it takes a number of their vital signs quickly and easily.  The chair itself is a redesign of the Emperor work chair and is not anything new or innovative.  But the repackaging as a health tool is imaginative and practical.

In today’s “Age of Social Media,” protecting the brand, and ultimately the reputation and revenue of the enterprise, has never been more critical or challenging. And as social media extends the reach and accelerates the exposure of these threats the resulting damages can been massive and difficult to diffuse without the ability to detect them in real-time.

Great customer service starts inside the organization.  People must be treated with respect and dignity if you expect them to treat others with respect and dignity.
