    Curtis Discusses Top 5 Health Concerns For Women and Men Part 2

    in Fitness

    According to a 2001 CDC report, women are 33% more likely than men to visit a doctor in general, although the gap narrows with increasing age.


    One could accept the statistic as just another difference between men and women, but the stakes are too high to remain complacent.


    The Men's Health Network (MHN) reports that men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death - heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accidents, pneumonia and influenza, diabetes, suicide, kidney disease, and chronic liver disease and cirrhosis.


    Men also die younger than women. In 1920, women outlived men only by one year. Today, CDC figures show the life expectancy gap has widened: On average, women survive men by over five years.


    "Any human being who is not connected to a physician to screen for major health problems is at greater risk (of disease and death)," says Jean Bonhomme, MD, MPH, a board member of the MHN.

  • Curtis Discusses Top 5 Health Concerns For Women and Men Today

    in Fitness

    Imagine living without illness to slow you down. While there are no lifetime guarantees, enough scientific research has been done to make long, healthy living a possibility.


    To help women boost health, WebMD examined five medical conditions that are of great concern to them: heart disease, breast cancer, osteoporosis, depression, and autoimmune diseases.


    We looked at the risk factors for each disease and asked the experts what women could do to prevent such ailments.


    In order to make full use of this information, Saralyn Mark, MD, encourages women to take charge of their health. She says women need to work in partnership with their doctors by finding out their family medical history, educating themselves on health issues, and paying attention to their bodies.


    "You know what makes you feel good, you know when you don't feel well. Understanding your body is key," says Mark, senior medical adviser for the Office on Women's Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    Behavioral Health Compliance: Making It Easy for Providers and Agencies

    in Psychology

    HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus,  PCI regulations - these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization.  They don't need to as we found after speaking with our guest today on Mental Health News Radio.  We sat down with Marc Haskelson, the President and CEO of Compliancy Group, to find out how easy compliance can be.


    Read the full article HERE.


    What is the difference between HIPAA and Meaningful  Use (MU) ?


    Do I have to attest for Meaningful Use?  What If I don’t attest?


    Who is considered a Vendor or a Business Associate?


    I am now accepting Medicare, does that put me at a higher risk for an audit just like everyone else?


    If I completed a Risk Assessment last year, do I have to do it again this year?


    Is there an insurance policy available that helps an entity with HIPAA  fines?


    What triggers an audit?  How do they know that they should audit you?


    Has your software solution ever been involved where an actual audit was being done by either CMS or OCR?


    If an EHR vendor or billing agency, as an example, are not following HIPAA compliance where can one go to report these actions?
