Researchers at the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and Case Comprehensive Cancer Center have found that rates of breast cancer screening mammography increased across all economic groups under the Affordable Care Act, while the rate of colonoscopy screenings stayed the same. Researchers conclude that the elimination of financial barriers improved patient access to necessary healthcare resources overall, though added expenses may also affect access: https://goo.gl/NJtDAw
The Affordable Care Act's goal of boosting preventive cancer screenings did not succeed everywhere.

Telemedicine can help healthcare providers deliver care more efficiently, more conveniently and with better outcomes while expanding access to care and specialized clinical expertise. It also can be challenging to integrating this modality with traditional, in-person care delivery in a responsible manner. Providers who are considering adopting new telehealth technologies should take extra precautions to protect patient privacy and ensure the same quality standards and continuity of care regardless of the delivery modality: https://goo.gl/yA5RZK

Chronic conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy and mood disorders may predispose women to give birth to infants with congenital heart disease, per a recent study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. With the early identification of these contributing factors, physicians can better provide the appropriate preconception counselling for women and postnatal care for infants: https://goo.gl/Cy6lY3

Per a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans living in rural communities are more likely to die from the top five leading causes of death, including heart disease and cancer. While deaths from these causes may be preventable, higher demographic rates of smoking, high blood pressure, and obesity, as well as poor access to health care, contribute to higher death rates in rural areas: https://goo.gl/HkUphw
New data from the CDC show striking disparities for rural and urban Americans.

Despite the current shortage of adequate health care resources in rural communities, the Childress Regional Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas has been successful in providing quality patient care and maintaining a positive bottom line in its annual operating budget. Key factors in this success include expanding local services, increasing staff, and using telemedicine to consult with other specialists on complex cases: https://goo.gl/jnbNmk
The hospital doesn't have high-priced specialists or the latest high-tech equipment. But it's an anchor of this small town in Texas. And it's thriving.

Per a recent Boston Globe survey, more than half of U.S. physicians have reduced opioid prescriptions and nearly one in 10 have stopped prescribing these drugs following guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year. Reflecting on this change, some doctors worry about treatment for patients with chronic pain and suggest that doctors be sure to proactively provide adequate access to alternative treatments: https://goo.gl/80RPwK

A 17-year Danish study concluded that screening mammography increases the diagnosis of nonmalignant tumors and does not prevent incidences of advanced breast cancer tumors or related cancer mortality: https://goo.gl/x9cbSG
A Danish study found that routine mammograms do not reduce the incidence of advanced tumors, and can lead to overdiagnosis.

A small study detected weak connections in the brain’s language regions in fetuses who were born preterm. While more research is needed, these findings suggest that contributing factors to preterm birth may also affect fetal brain development, and might lead to future health concerns such as autism: https://goo.gl/rujdqP

A RAND Corporation study found no correlation between the opening of retail clinics within a 10-minute drive of emergency departments and reduced ED visits for low-acuity conditions. However, the clinics may be encouraging people to seek healthcare services more often for temporary conditions, such as ear infections: https://goo.gl/wmEBfy
