Healthcare Reform and IT
As soon as President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law in late March, CIOs, policy leaders and industry observers began trying to gauge its potential impact, as well as how it might relate to the HITECH Act's meaningful use requirements. “I have read the bill and it is complex to understand,” says David Muntz, senior vice president and CIO of the Baylor Health Care System in Dallas. “It's kind of mind-boggling, but everyone is going to be impacted.” Muntz, who chairs the CHIME Advocacy Leadership Team for the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Center for Healthcare ... market research, surveys and trends
A New Tool Identifies Workplace Factors That Can Affect the ...
In 2005–07, researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health developed a tool to measure the work environment of ambulatory care clinics. The tool identifies workplace factors that can affect the quality of care patients receive. To develop the tool, the researchers relied on survey and medical record data from a larger project funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Minimizing Error, Maximizing Outcome —or MEMO—study. The MEMO study determined the effect of the ambulatory care work environment on quality of care and the role of physicians as mediators ... market research, surveys and trends

Boehner calls on Obama to fire economic team
In an economic speech that was more political than policy, that offered more generalities than specifics, House Minority Leader John Boehner today called on President Obama to fire his economic team and briefly sketched out what Republicans would plan to do if they regain control of Congress. "President Obama should ask for -- and accept -- the resignations of the remaining members of his economic team, starting with Secretary Geithner and Larry Summers , the head of the National Economic Council," Boehner said in his speech to the City Club of Cleveland, per an advanced copy of his remarks. Boehner called on Obama to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Health-care reform a boon for insurers
The public is actively engaged in a review of the insurance mandate provisions of the new health-care act. The arguments against it have to do with the constitutionality of the requirements. My evaluation is based solely on benefits and costs. The purpose of this section of the bill was to help the community, primarily hospitals,  burdened with unpaid bills. What will it really do?

Most of the very large bills such as the cost of months in a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Hello Gthoenen, It?s a shame to hear about your wife?s difficulties, but you can be glad you are in Boston.
