In new effort to tackle health care fraud, government and insurers to scrutinize clai... - 1 views

    WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is upping the ante in the
    fight against health care fraud, joining forces with private insurers and
    state investigators on a scale not previously seen in an attempt to stanch
    tens of billions of dollars in losses.
    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a
    statement Thursday that the new public-private partnership "puts
    criminals on notice that we will find them and stop them," while
    Attorney General Eric Holder called it "a critical step forward" against
    fraud, an endemic problem plaguing programs like Medicare and
    Medicare as well as private insurance companies.
    Details of the collaboration remain to be worked out, but the
    possibilities include sharing information on new fraud schemes as they
    pop up, using claims data to catch scams such as payments billed to
    different insurers on the same day for care purportedly delivered to the
    same patient in different cities, and using computer analysis to spot
    emerging patterns of fraud.
    The agreement is also unusual because it brings the Obama
    administration and longtime foes in the insurance industry together to
    tackle a common problem. While carrying out the requirements of
    President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law, insurers are also
    lobbying to roll back some of its provisions, such as new taxes on the
    industry and cuts to private plans offered through Medicare. Obama
    continues to rail against industry "abuses."
    Fraud is estimated to cost Medicare about $60 billion a year, and the
    Obama administration has beefed up the government's efforts to stop it,
    bringing in record settlements with drug companies for marketing
    violations as well as using new powers in the health care law to pursue
    low-level fraudsters with greater zeal.
    Yet, although Medicare is becoming a harder target, it's too early to say
    if the tide has turned.
    Some antifraud efforts launched with great fanfare have yet to deliver
    convincing results.

    A new study published this week in the Sleep journal has discovered that sleep problem decreases with age; basically contradicting the common belief that sleep problem comes with age.



    A group of researchers from Center for Sleep of Pennsylvania University along with other organizations conducted a survey of 155,877 people from all ages who has previously reported sleep disturbances. Their study aims to find the answer on how sleep complaints alter as a person age.



    The study was conducted by asking participants how often within the past 2 weeks they had problems staying or falling asleep as well as the number of days they have felt tired.



    Their telephone survey has resulted in the conclusion that sleep quality, in fact, gets better as you get older. They found a general decline in sleep tiredness across higher age groups. Actually, women and men older than 80 are the least likely among the age groups to complain of sleep problems.



    According to the study, poor overall health conditions and depression are both connected with sleep problems as those who have mild depression appear more twice as likely to report sleep disorders.



    Basically, it shows that once you have control of mood and health, people dont necessarily have more sleep problems.



    Experts seem to be disputing the results of the study as the method of data collection done is generally subjective (participants were only asked about their physical symptoms) as opposed to previous researches done through objective data gathering (e.g. monitoring patients' sleep patterns in laboratory room) which could be the reason for the result difference.



    A single study cannot hope to change the health care implementation. But considering that the sample size of the study is large, it will be hard to discount the results. Besides, the question given was so general that it captures the entirety of sleep disorders.



    The results of this study is essentially contrad

    Egypt's new president Mohamed Morsi is reconsidering the peace agreement with Israel and ties with Iran in an attempt to build a strategic balance in the region.




     




    Morsi was quick to announce that all issues will be addressed by governmental bodies as he will not make decisions on his own, according to Springhill Group Home.




     




    "Part of my agenda is the development of ties between Iran and Egypt that will create a strategic balance in the region."




     




    Morsi has convened with his advisors to form a new Cabinet prior to his swearing-in on Saturday as the first freely-elected leader. On the other hand, the defeated candidate Ahmed Shafik was found to have left the Egypt in the midst of mounting fraud charges against him since his time as the nation's civil aviation minister.




     




    The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate has pledged to become a leader for all Egyptians.




     




    "I will be a president for all Egyptians. I call on you, great people of Egypt… to strengthen our national unity - the only way out of these difficult times," Morsi said hours following his being declared the new president.




     




    Egypt has breathed a collected sigh of relief when the election and proclamation have finished without the feared bloodshed. Morsi's triumph, also marking Egypt's first fair and free election in the modern times, followed almost 2 years of political upheavel and civil unrest from Hosni Mubarak's military-rule.




     




    Britain, France, US and the European Union have deemed the democratic election and the winning civilian president as significant parts of Egypt's history. The US in particular has encouraged Morsi to continue Egypt's transition to democracy that began last year.




     




    However, even if Morsi has already resigned from the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt when he was elected, Israel is still worried of him for his Islam affiliations that could possibly endanger the peace of the two neighboring nati

    Patients with sickle cell disease move from pediatric to adult health care because they now depend more on the emergency room, says researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

    Reported at the American Society of Hematology's annual meeting in Atlanta, more than 3,200 patients with sickle cell disease demonstrates that emergency room visits tripled from age 15 to age 24 this is according to the study of Medicaid data.

    According to hematologist Morey A. Blinder, MD, associate professor of medicine, "There seems to be a breakdown in medical care during the transition from childhood to adulthood. Not only emergency department usage, but hospitalizations go up during this time as well."

    Blinder further added that one possible explanation for the increased reliance on emergency care is the relative lack of adult health care providers with experience caring for sickle cell patients. Alarming similar issues are arising for other pediatric diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and hemophilia. The said illnesses were previously fatal. What is more sad about the problem is over the past few decades the number of children and teenagers are living into adulthood with these conditions increased. What makes the matters worse is there often aren't enough primary care physicians who can provide care for these adult patients.

    Many are not familiar to the understanding of the sickle cell disease. It refers to a number of inherited genetic conditions the "sickle" shape red blood cells aren't normal, they are suppose to be normally round, disk-like red blood cells. The problems with these malformed red blood cells are prone to clogging smaller blood vessels and they do not carry oxygen to the body as well as healthy cells. The condition often causes pain in places the cells block blood flow that sometimes causes more severe complications include blindness, strokes and pneumonia.

    Springhill Home Care Group Korea Reviews Seoul Employs Elderly to Tackle Phone Waste
    http://blogs.wsj.com/korearealtime/2013/07/25/seoul-employs-elderly-to-tackle-phone-waste/
    South Koreans are among the world's most frequent phone upgraders, buying about 15 million new mobile phones each year, according to a recent report by market research firm DigiEco.

    One of the problems that creates is the handling of all the discarded older phones.

    To tackle the issue of electronics waste, or e-waste, the Seoul city government started a program called Eco City in 2009 to collect used electronics. It runs a waste handling facility called Seoul Resource Center in the northeast of the capital and employs elderly or low-income people to break them down and process the parts.

    Eco City is unique in that it is an entirely government-funded and directed operation. In Tokyo, the municipal government invited private companies to set up recycling facilities, while China has struggled to deal with large amounts of e-waste both produced domestically and imported.
    Seoul's Eco City says each discarded mobile phone has between 2,500 won and 4,000 won (about US$2.23-$3.50) worth of metals in it, including rare earth metals such as neodymium.

    At intervals of six months or a year, companies can bid to purchase the waste that has been gathered and sorted by Eco City. Whatever can't be sold or reused is incinerated.
