NARCAN in BALTIMORE?

NALOXONE SPRAY!

By Anonymous DEA Agent

Naloxone, sold under the brandname Narcan among others, is a medication used to block the effects of opioids, especially decreased breathing in overdose. Naloxone may be combined with an opioid (in the same pill) to decrease the risk of opioid misuse. When given intravenously, naloxone works within two minutes, and when injected into a muscle, it works within five minutes; it may also be sprayed into the nose. The effects of naloxone last about half an hour to an hour. Multiple doses may be required, as the duration of action of most opioids is greater than that of naloxone.

What are False Positive and False Negative Tests?

Binary Test Errors

[By staff reporters]

In medical testing, and more generally in binary classification, a false positive is an error in data reporting in which a test result improperly indicates presence of a condition, such as a disease (the result is positive), when in reality it is not present, while a false negative is an error in which a test result improperly indicates no presence of a condition (the result is negative), when in reality it is present.

Assessment

These are the two kinds of errors in a binary test (and are contrasted with a correct result, either a true positive or a true negative.) They are also known in medicine as a false positive (respectively negative) diagnosis, and in statistical classification as a false positive (respectively negative) error.

A false positive is distinct from overdiagnosis, and is also different from overtesting.

Conclusion: Your thoughts are appreciated.

Hospitals are likely to see some significant changes in the way that Medicare reimburses for inpatient services in the next couple of years, according to the calendar year (CY) 2020.

The  Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) final rule that was published on August 16, 2019, and the announcement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on August 19, 2019, said that it would change the quality “star ratings” system on Hospital Compare, beginning in 2021.

Ride Sharing for Elderly Patients

Emerging Transportation Models

By Rick Kahler CFP

For elderly people facing the reality of diminishing capabilities, a service that can help maintain their independence is ridesharing.

Ride – Sharing

Ridesharing is hardly news for most Americans, particularly those in urban areas. After all, it has been around for a decade. In more rural areas of the US, however, ridesharing is just becoming an option. In my home town of Rapid City, South Dakota, for example, Lyft started operations only recently, and Uber will begin this September.

Many of us in rural parts of the US, myself included, use ridesharing primarily when we travel. It has changed the way I travel in large cities, and I appreciate it for its convenience, flexibility, and economical cost.

For many others outside of big cities, however, especially senior citizens, ridesharing has the potential to be a game changer for those willing to take advantage of it.

There are a lot of emotional benefits and pitfalls to ridesharing for seniors. The greatest benefit is that, instead of relying on the gratuity and schedules of friends, family, and limited public transportation, they can literally reclaim most of the freedom they once had when they could drive. This alone can be uplifting and empowering. It allows seniors who may be isolated socially to reenter their communities and gives them a renewed sense of independence and autonomy.

However, I find many seniors emotionally resistant and reluctant to embrace the benefits of ridesharing. Many fear the unknown and unfamiliarity of ridesharing. Using the app inherently means owning a smart phone, which many seniors resist. Even those who have smartphones may feel overwhelmed about downloading and learning the app. This is where reaching out to younger family and friends to show you the ropes can be critical.

Another factor that often contributes to reluctance to use the freedom and convenience of ridesharing is a money script of frugality. The assumption may be “I can’t afford it.” While this can be absolutely true for some, many who could easily afford ridesharing also buy into that belief.

Economically, using ridesharing can cost the same as or less than owning a car. This is especially the case if you don’t have a demanding schedule and your need for transportation is moderate for activities like grocery shopping, medical appointments, and occasional social events.

Example:

Let’s assume you average one 10-mile round trip per day, or seven per week.  If you owned a car the gas would cost $50 a month. Insurance could run about $100. Oil, changing tires, servicing, and periodic repairs could average another $50 a month. That’s a total of $200 a month in out-of-pocket costs. The biggest cost is the depreciation on your car. Let’s assume your car is worth $20,000. You could expect it to depreciate 1% per month or around $200. That puts the total cost of owning the car at $400 per month.

Ridesharing costs about $7.00 each way when you are traveling up to 5 miles. That puts the daily average cost at $14.00 per trip, or $420 a month, about the same cost as owning a car—and a cost that could be covered for months through selling your vehicle.

***

Assessment

Ridesharing can open up a whole new world of convenience, autonomy, and choices. Its benefits can even be a matter of life and death when seniors reach that difficult time when they can still legally drive but in reality they should not. With physical impairments like deteriorating vision and slower reaction time, driving means putting themselves and others at risk. Having the option of ridesharing can make that tough decision to give up driving just a little easier.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Is Health Economics “Heterodoxic” -OR- Not?

A Real or False Linguistic Conundrum?

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

Heterodox Economics

Heterodox Economics refers to methodologies or schools of economic thought that are considered outside of “mainstream economics”, often represented by expositors as contrasting with or going beyond neoclassical economics. “Heterodox economics” is an umbrella term used to cover various approaches, schools, or traditions.

***

***
Health Economics [not healthcare economics]
***
Health Economics is a branch of economics concerned with issues related to efficiency, effectiveness, value and behavior in the production and consumption of health and healthcare. In broad terms, health economists study the functioning of healthcare systems and health-affecting behaviors such as smoking.
***
The “father” of health economics may just well be Ken Arrow, PhD.
***
Assessment: So, is health economics now mainstream; or still heterodoxic in 2019? OR, is the definitial conundrum just a matter of linguistics and terms-of-art. Your thoughts are appreciated.
