Survey Reveals Physicians Prefer Filtered Sunshine
A conversation with Michaeline Daboul, CEO of MMIS, about her company's third annual survey of doctors and their knowledge of the Sunshine Act. The survey found that physicians are actually less informed than they were one year ago.
If employers want to maintain or reduce healthcare spending, one of the best places to start is with employees’ use of hospitals. The long-time mantra in addressing health care costs is to keep employees out of emergency rooms, avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and, if an employee or their dependent is admitted, get them out of the hospital as quickly as possible.
A growing number of employers and insurance companies are using different strategies to direct employees to the best care, including concierge medicine and virtual-physician-diagnostic services for minor medical conditions.
Join the CoHealth community as we talk with Alan Roga (StatDoctors) and Natalie Hodge (PersonalMedicinePlus) -- two physicians who are changing how and where physicians meet patients, including via virtual, computer-based visits, mobile apps and concierge services.

Dr. Farzad Mostashari, former National Coordinator for HIT and more recently a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution, has launched a new VC-backed company, Aledade. Aledade provides the smarts and some of the infrastructure to help independent primary care physicians form and join Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). ACOs are a new care delivery model in which doctors are paid to deliver the best care as opposed to the fee-for-service model that encourages them to do more care.
Farzad notes in his blog that his tenure at Brookings allowed him to go on a healthcare "walkabout." He visited and talked to docs and healthcare wonks around the country and came away with 'a rare stereoscopic view of the change sweeping through healthcare - the anxiety of those with "one foot on the old business model's grave and the other foot on their new business model banana peel," mingled with the excitement of those who would disrupt the process.'
He says, during the process, he also found his cause. "It's to help independent primary care doctors re-design their practices, and re-imagine their future...It's to support them with people who will stand beside them, with no interests other than theirs in mind. It's to promote new partnerships built on mutual respect, and business arrangements that they will truly reward them for the value that they uniquely can bring - in better care coordination, management of chornic diseases, and preventing disease and suffering. It's to achieve lower cost through better care and better health."
Listen in on this fascinating discussion.

Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed emergency medicine physician Dr. Doug McGuff about "Government Controls in Emergency Medicine" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio.
The practice of emergency medicine is heavily regulated by the government. What are some of those regulations? What are their effects? How do they make the practice of medicine more difficult? How would emergency medicine function in a truly free market?
Dr. Doug McGuff is an emergency medicine doctor practicing in South Carolina. He graduated from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio in 1989, and then trained in Emergency Medicine at the University of Arkansas, where he served as Chief Resident. From there, Dr. McGuff served as Faculty in the Wright State University Emergency Medicine Residency and was a staff Emergency Physician at Wright-Patterson AFB Hospital. Today, Dr. McGuff is a partner with Blue Ridge Emergency Physicians.

iVrach.com: An Online Community for Russian Speaking Physicians
Guest Oxana Kolosova, Managing Partner at iVrach.com, discusses the use of social media in Russia by physicians and how the pharmaceutical industry can work with online physician communities such as iVrach.com.
Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Dr. Mayo Friedlis will be discussing using stem cells and platelets from your own body to treat arthritis and other musculoskeletal injuries.
Dr. Friedlis joined the National Spine & Pain Centers in 1983 and has helped expand the practice into a leading pain management facility. He is passionate about the science of managing pain and committed to delivering the most effective therapies possible to each of his patients. Dr. Friedlis is one of few physicians in the Washington DC area trained to perform Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and is one of the first doctors in the area to use Stem Cell Therapy for musculoskeletal injuries, in particular knee and hip arthritis.
In 1922 Henry Lindlhar designed what he called the disease tree. He was one of a small group of gifted physicians who introduced the European system of nature cure to the United States. Dr Lindlhar developed and directed a school of natural therapeutics. His work is the foundation for the present day practice of naturopathy.
Henry was the author of one of the of naturopathic cornerstone texts medicine, Nature Cure, which includes topics about disease suppression versus elimination, hydrotherapy, and the importance of fresh air and sun bathing.
In closing look closely at the disease tree and the symptoms it indicates. And remember, symptoms are not the disease. Symptoms are generated by the body in its efforts to cope with a disease.” Suppressing symptoms as is done with allopathic medicine merely drives disease more deeply into the body where in contrast natural or homeopathic medicines strengthen the body or supported the body in trying to clear out what was bothering it.” View my web site at www.naturalhealthcommunity.org/kathydeane for more articles and be sure to listen to my radio talk show.

Did you know that 60% of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is caused by SIBO? That's a lot! Most physicians are still not aware of SIBO, and that means many patients are left without good diagnosis and care for their gas and bloating. When everything you eat turns to gas and bloating then you need to be investigated for having SIBO.
SIBO occurs when colonic bacteria backwashes up into the small intestine and overgrows. It causes terrible gas and bloating, terrible indigestion, constipation or diarrhea, and sometimes foul smelling flatulence.
If you have had IBS and no one has helped eradicate your gas and bloating, then listen to this informative radio program to learn all about SIBO.
