There's no question about it: E Mail has arrived. According to a research group studying technology trends, by the year 2005, one third of all electronic billing will be carried out via e mail routes; and devices like the "Blackberry" (a palm-sized, mobile wireless device designed exclusively for sending and retrieving e mail) will no doubt inevitably be scaled down to micro-size and incorporated into household appliances and/or items of clothing-- so that sometime in the not-distant future you will be checking your Inbox from under a band-aid-sized fanny pack velcro snap, shoe sole, or the brim of your favorite ... market research, surveys and trends
Natural Cures For Sleep Apnea | Business44.Com - Business Site
You could be suffering from sleep apnea and not even know it – since it happens only when you’re sleep. And if you live alone, it is even harder to detect.. The symptoms of sleep apnea While there may be no visible symptoms of sleep apnea, feeling tired an worn out all day and falling asleep during the day are good indicators. This is because sleep apnea iliterally robs you of sleep as it can cause you to stop breathing — as many as 50 or a 100 times during the night. And these interruptions take their toll. Diagnosing sleep apnea If you do feel tired and fatigued all day, you absolutely ... market research, surveys and trends

2008 Medical Coding Salary Survey, Medical Coding Salaries | AAPC News
Ask coders what they do and how much they make, and their answers are as varied as how sensitive to the sun they are. Some are easy burners, with salaries and careers that show the results of outside forces quickly. Some are seemingly immune to the forces that buffet our careers. All-in-all, we’re doing pretty well; and, it appears that average salaries have increased more than 11 percent since our survey in 2007. Sunning the Fruit Trees This year’s survey was completed by more coders than ever and conducted via the internet during July and August. Over 12,000 coders participated. Like trees in the sun, the information continues ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
I, Cringely . The Pulpit . Son of Napster | PBS
When I mentioned in last week's column that I would this week be writing about a legal way to do a successful music downloading business -- a business that would threaten the Recording Industry Association of America and its hegemony -- dozens of readers wrote to me trying to predict what I would write. Some readers came at the problem from a purely technical perspective, ignoring the fact that the real issues here aren't technical but legal. Some readers took a legal approach, but they tended to ignore the business model. Some were looking solely for the business model. Interestingly, nobody even came close to my ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Advantech PIT-1501W "Patient Infotainment Terminal"
Will computers specially designed for hospital patients follow the example provided by airlines in offering a subset of controlled information and entertainment? By Conrad H. Blickenstorfer and Carol Cotton Given the ever-escalating costs of healthcare, you'd think hospital patients would be treated like pampered guests at a 5-star hotel. Sadly, that's hardly ever the case, but if companies like Advantech have a say in the matter, hospital patients may soon have entertainment and information options far more satisfying than watching the usual ancient hospital-issue CRT TV bolted to the wall.

What are the key differences between physician billing and patient ...
My area of expertise is in web technology. However, I do occasionally get IT search assignments in the healthcare space. Currently, I have a requirement for strong physician billing experience. I realize that’s different than patient billing. But from an IT “skill set” standpoint, what are the key differences that I should be aware of? Furthermore, are there any other acronyms or industry terms for "physician specific” billing that I should watch for (e.g., vendors, packages, technologies, etc).? Thanks for the great answers so far. I have gained a solid understanding of the differences from a process ...

I've been flying a lot recently and I am always told to turn all electronic devices off until the lane gets to a height of 10,000 feet?
