The relative high cost and poor outcomes of the US healthcare system as compared to the rest of the developed world is well documented. In his first Inaugural Address, President Obama promised to “wield technology’s wonders” to improve the quality and lower the cost of medical care in America. This hasn’t happened. The benefits IT has brought to most every industry, hasn’t been witnessed in the medical industry. This may be because best practices for developing IT solutions simply don't take into consideration what needs to go into building successful medical products and treatment approaches.
I’ve seen this gap – and the consequences it can cause – while building and deploying hardware-based tools and software applications, including EMR and ERP systems, for a variety of industries.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 4th at 6pm EST, we discuss what needs to be done to bridge the gap between IT product development and the medical community’s need for evidence-based research and clinical trials.
We’ll also discuss a project I’m working on in researching Personal Health Records, or PHR systems, as an effort to tailor IT product development best practices to meet healthcare’s intrinsic needs from new products and treatments. If successful, the approach may change how Health IT solution are develop throughout the industry.
Join Us tomorrow @ 6pm EST right here! & Join the conversation on twitter @techtodayradio, our blog, or FB. Listeners are also invited to call us Live on Air @ 646-652-4385.
As I was looking into Liberty Health Share I wanted to know how they could keep medical costs down and reduce my out of pocket expenses, and yet stay solvent? Dale Bellis is the Executive Director of Liberty Health Share. He told me about the law of large numbers and computer algorithms.
And yes, he said last year every members monthly share fee that they pay dropped 50-dollars. For more on the 3 medical cost sharing programs offered by Liberty Health Share, go to liberty health share dot-org slash John Daly. Stay informed Not Inflamed.
We’re talking about Liberty Health Share. Again this is not health insurance. It is medical cost sharing. And it is allowable under the Affordable Care Act. I’ll admit medical cost sharing is difficult to understand since we have lived with medical insurance for so long. But share amount members have paid actually dropped by 50-dollars a month last year. How could this happen in this environment? I put that question to Liberty Health Share Executive Director Dale Bellis. He told me three reasons.
Number one we actually share in the actual numbers…. Are less there as well.
Again that was Dale Bellis, the Executive Director of Liberty Health Share. In another segment, Dale will share with me the reimbursement formula that Liberty Health Share uses that is being accepted by medical providers but also keeping costs down.

Once again the African American community has become unhinged over the shooting of another young black male. Of course the death of another young african american male is always upsetting and nothing to make lite of. The troubling aspect of this incident is how some of our well behaved children decided to loot, destroy and in some cases assault innocent bystanders. What type of message does this send, how can your request respect from others when you cannot respect your own neighborhood businesses.
Baltimore maryland has instituted a new year round curfew some are calling unnecessary because the curfew unfairly targets kids who may have done anything wrong. However there are numerous parents whom welcome the curfew. Does having a curfew help the family dynamic?

In these last two chapters of 2 Samuel, much happens. But in keeping with one truth for the day, we focus on the fact that David refused to make a sacrifice to the Lord which cost him nothing. This is a wonderful example, demonstrating that we should also be sure that our sacrifices to the Lord are not without cost.
2 Samuel 24:21-25New Living Translation (NLT)
21 “Why have you come, my lord the king?” Araunah asked.
David replied, “I have come to buy your threshing floor and to build an altar to the Lordthere, so that he will stop the plague.”
22 “Take it, my lord the king, and use it as you wish,” Araunah said to David. “Here are oxen for the burnt offering, and you can use the threshing boards and ox yokes for wood to build a fire on the altar. 23 I will give it all to you, Your Majesty, and may theLord your God accept your sacrifice.”
24 But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it, for I will not present burnt offerings to the Lord my God that have cost me nothing.” So David paid him fifty pieces of silver[a] for the threshing floor and the oxen.
25 David built an altar there to the Lord and sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings. And the Lord answered his prayer for the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.
Relationship abuse is a pattern of control exerted by one partner over another using coercive, threatening, and/or violent strategies. Control is often kept in place by isolating the victim, promoting fear, and narrowing options. Abuse is different than BDSM in that only one person determines what will happen, no consent is asked for or given, and the person being abused cannot stop what the abuser is doing.
There are many forms of abuse and control that can happen in relationships. It can include stalking, threats, intimidation, and physical violence. Often things start out at a much lower level, making an abuser hard to recognize. Early warning signs include possessiveness, jealousy, frequent mood swings, and anti-social behavior. Abuse usually escalates in frequency and severity over time. The best way to combat relationship violence is to become educated about it.
