What is a MEME Stock?

MEME ME!

A “MEME” stock isn’t as easily defined as a growth or value stock, so to give it a definitive categorization would be inappropriate. Nor would actually categorizing it alongside growth and value stocks. They won’t be found in textbooks anytime soon, but to overlook their impact could potentially be an expensive oversight.

MEDICAL: Artificial Intelligence in EHRs

ELECTRIC HEALTH RECORDS

By White Hat Anonymous

Epic Systems, the country’s leading e-health record company, says an algorithm it developed can accurately flag sepsis in patients 76% of the time. The life-threatening disease, which arises from infections, is a major concern for hospitals: One-third of patients who die in hospitals have sepsis, per the CDC. 

  • Generally, the earlier sepsis is diagnosed and treated, the better a patient’s chances of survival—and hundreds of hospitals use Epic Systems’s sepsis prediction model, The Verge reports. 

The problem: According to a study published this week in JAMA Internal Medicine, Epic Systems may have gotten the success rate wrong: The model is only correct 63% of the time—“substantially worse than the performance reported by its developer,” the researchers wrote. 

  • Part of the issue can be traced to the algorithm’s development, Stat News reports. It was trained to flag when doctors would submit bills for sepsis treatment—which doesn’t always line up with patients’ first signs of symptoms. 
  • “It’s essentially trying to predict what physicians are already doing,” Dr. Karandeep Singh, study author.

When reached for comment, Epic Systems told us the researchers’ hypothetical scenario lacked “the required validation, analysis, and tuning that organizations need to do before deployment,” adding that the JAMA study’s findings differed from other research.

Bottom line: Algorithms can augment healthcare, but the life-or-death nature of their use requires serious due diligence.

PODCAST: How Much Does Medicare Actually Pay Each Doctor?

Medicare Released Data on What It Paid To Each Doctor in America from 2012 to 2015 and the Wall Street Journal Compiled That Information Into an Amazing Searchable Database.

Texas CEO Magazine Eric Bricker 1 - SO 14 - Texas CEO Magazine

BY DR. ERIC BRICKER MD

The Findings:

1) Some Individual Doctors Were Paid Upwards of $5.8 Million Dollars by Medicare in Just a Single Year!

2) The Specialists That Charged Medicare the Most Tended to Be Vascular Surgeons, Ophthalmologists, Oncologists and Cardiologists.

Implications for Employer-Sponsored Health Plans:

1) Medicare Data Can Be Used to Identify High Volume Physicians and Surgeons.

2) The Highest-Costing Doctors Are Concentrated in a Relatively Small Number of Specialties That Can Be Targeted for Detailed Review, Feedback and Possible Exclusion/Steerage Away.

ASSESSMENT: Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.
