I love freedom and personal liberty. But I also don’t want to contract or share COVID-19.

I wear a seat belt – I will comply with any mask  requirement.

PODCAST: Healthcare Machine Learning Can Self Create / Improve Algorithms?

Machine Learning is a Subset of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Where Computer Software Can Create and Improve on Algorithms on Its Own.

Machine Learning for Population Health

PODCAST: 'Hacking of the American Mind' | The Leading ...

By Eric Bricker MD

Healthcare Machine Learning Company ClosedLoop.ai is One of the Best at Applying Machine Learning to Population Health Data.

ClosedLoop.ai is So Good, They Won the CMS AI Challenge … Beating Out 300 Other Organizations Including IBM, the Mayo Clinic and Deloitte.

The Promise of Machine Learning in Population Health is to Better Predict Which People Will Benefit From an Intervention Because They Are at Greater Risk of a Complication of a Disease or an ER Visit or a Hospitalization.

ClosedLoop.ai Beautifully Applied Their Machine Learning Abilities to Create a Pandemic Risk Model That Helped a New York City Health Insurance Plan Identify Which Members Would Be Most Likely to Have Severe Complications of COVID-19.

As a Result, the Insurance Company Helped These Individuals Have Groceries and Prescription Medication Delivered to Them So They Could Stay at Home and Avoid Exposure to COVID.

There You Have It!  A Practical, Real-World Example of Machine Learning in Population Health That Literally Saved Some People’s Lives.

I admit that I held a state insurance license.

A 22 minute computer test was the barrier to entry. There aren’t many with both medical and insurance licenses; and even fewer who actually practiced inside a [skilled] nursing home, long term care facility or geriatric hospital; etc.

Of course, agents sell policies but doctors treat patients. And, most Long Term Care Insurance policies are sold; not bought. I would not want to live in such a facility.

WHAT IS “CONTACT TRACING” IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

WHAT IS “CONTACT TRACING” IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

When a patient tests positive, you make a list of everyone they came in close contact with. Then, you find those people and make sure they self-isolate before infecting others.

That sounds straightforward, but contact tracing a new patient typically takes three days, which is “an insurmountable hurdle in the U.S., with its low numbers of public health workers and tens of thousands of new cases every day.”

ELSEWHERE: South Korea used high-tech contact tracing to tame its outbreak. The government compiled GPS data, credit card swipes, and other info into a public log showing where COVID-19 patients had traveled.

Some countries (including the U.S.) are trying other methods, including looking at smart-phone location data and developing Bluetooth systems that provide warnings if you’ve crossed paths with an infected person.

PROBLEMS: Despite its widespread use in places like Singapore, contact tracing has raised concerns about privacy and governments following citizens’ whereabouts.

Covid-19 Vital Sign Diagnostics

It is well known that a high temperature is one stigmata of the Corona Virus [88% of cases]; even higher than the seasonal flu.

But, what are the 6 gross anatomic landmarks to take a temperature and how do we adjust for standards of error?

NOTE: This information might save your life.

“Flattening the Curve” of COVID-19 Infections

WHAT IT IS – HOW IT WORKS?

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Our message on Corona Virus so far has been “don’t panic.” For the vast majority of individuals, Corona Virus is not an existential threat.

However, the rapid rate of the virus’s spread has the potential to overwhelm our health system and cause a lot of problems.

And so, colleague Aaron E. Carroll MD MS explains the infection curve, right here.

Understanding the 2020 Corona Virus Economic Crisis

Understanding the 2020 Corona Virus Economic Crisis

By William Poole

Dear Dr. David E. Marcinko,

Thank you for your interest in the Merk Perspective.

Merk Senior Economic Adviser and former St. Louis Fed President William Poole shares his thoughts on how to assess the economic impact of the Corona virus, pointing out in what ways it is different from past crises.

There are several aspects of the crisis that deserve separate attention. Many will seem obvious but nonetheless need to be made explicit to yield a thorough analysis.

The Impact of Coronavirus [Covid-19]

People, Economy and Your Portfolio

By Vitaliy Katsenelson CFA

The Coronavirus

I cannot tell you how much displeasure I have experienced from what I am about to say. I’ll be throwing around statistics of people dying as if I am talking not about people but widgets. My six-year-old daughter Mia Sarah had a garden-variety virus a few weeks ago. When my wife told me – a few minutes after I had been reading about coronavirus –for a second my heart sank, as virus to me meant coronavirus.

Even if Mia Sarah had coronavirus, the chances of survival were greatly in her favor. (Coronavirus, like the flu, is exponentially deadlier to older folks than younger ones). However, when it comes to your loved ones, statistics lose their meaning, and you start magnifying tiny probabilities into high-probability outcomes. The coronavirus statistics represent people’s loved ones, but I don’t know how else to write what I am about to write.

I am going to divide this letter into three sections: health and human impact (sometimes a tragic one), economic impact, and investment strategy.
