Question by BekindtoAnimals22: How bad will the insurance coverage get under the Affordable Health Care Act? Mine just keeps getting worse?
Its now been changed to only cover 70% rather than 80%. The copay and deductible are higher. The notification said that the company I worked for was being pressured to reduce costs due to the Affordable Health Care Act. So now I guess I need a supplemental health insurance policy. I guess that looks better on Obama’s statistics but it sure doesn’t help the people who need insurance. How does that save me money? Why does anyone support this bill? It stinks.

Answer by wider scope
Much worse than it has been even under Clinton’s managed care. Expect services and treatment to be further cut, as well. Pretty soon, we’ll all be standing in line at Wal-Mart for our yearly exams. I sometimes wonder if Clinton’s legislation, which he, also, promised would give us lowered costs and better care, wasn’t a set up to turn things so bad that the naive would call uncle. One thing is for sure, Clinton created such a mess that it now needs to be fixed on OUR behalf. No doubt that Bill’s promises fell flat. Expect the same out of Obama. Liberals are transparently dishonest.

Physical therapy software streamlines every aspect of practice management, from documenting patient visits to faster reimbursements, said Chhoda. An EMR can manage patient scheduling and handle billing, allowing therapists to develop more effective treatments.

A licensed physical therapist himself, Chhoda has collaborated with inventor, Ritika Gulrajani, to create a physical therapy documentation software and system specifically developed for physical therapists. It will provide complete patient care platform and electronic billing center, utilizing electronic versions of forms with which therapists are familiar. They can be customized to address the needs of individual practices.

Better patient care, enhanced efficiency and greater profitability are the hallmarks of an EMR system. Clinics employing occupational physical therapy software experience significantly fewer reimbursement denials and quicker turnaround on payments for increased financial health. Chhoda noted that electronic medical records provide therapists with a complete system of documentation and protection should a malpractice suit be filed.

Patients have access to an extensive array of treatments, procedures and prescription medications and before the creation of EMR systems, therapists could wait days or weeks to obtain pertinent medical information from other providers. With an EMR, therapists have instant access to complete patient records from any location. Medical professionals are known for having notoriously bad handwriting and EMRs provide clear, legible notes and instructions.

Physical therapy management software integrates easily into the normal workflow of any practice for greater efficiency in all departments. Clients can utilize an EMR patient portal to schedule appointments, enter insurance information or request information. The software offers an efficient means of gathering contact information of potential patients, ascertaining where referrals are originating and where marketing efforts should be focused.

A future physical therapy management software will provide a new level of documentation for all facets of physical therapy practices. The collaboration of Chhoda and Gulrajani offers therapists a free physical therapy documentation system that requires no expensive monthly fees and integrates the abilities most desired by practice owners to move them forward to the next level of patient treatment and clinic profitability.

Question by class of 12: How are illegal immigrants getting free health care?
I heard in a lot of debate about illegal immigrants and how they care free services such as health care. I became a U.S citizen two years ago and I’ve been trying to find cheaper and quality health care, but I couldn’t. I researched free health care online, but can’t find it. I don’t have health insurance, so whenever I visit the doctor, I either pay upfront if it’s about $ 200 or they send me the bills if its way higher. So how are illegal immigrants getting free health care?

Just another baseless claim made by people that either don’t know what they are talking about, or they do know it is baseless and think you are dumb enough to believe what they are saying nonetheless.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 18, 2007 -

Most people would agree that there is no worse feeling than needing something and not being able to find it. The problem is compounded when the “something you need to find” are documents that detail financial holdings, insurance policies and other important documents belonging to a loved one.

“If, like most people, you keep copies of your will, savings bonds and keepsakes in a lock box or safety deposit box, you’re doing OK,” says financial professional Bill Spalding. “But, a safety deposit box can be made better if it’s managed online and includes account aggregation.”

Account aggregation is a method that involves compiling information from different accounts, which may include bank accounts, credit card accounts, investment accounts, and other consumer or business accounts, into a single place. One of the best methods uses something called “screen scraping” where a user provides the requisite account-access information for an automated system to gather and compile the information into a single page. Usually this aggregated account information resides in a web-based application. With just a few keystrokes, the account holder can log in to a password protected site and view all their information online.

While such services are primarily designed to aggregate financial information, they sometimes also display other things such as the contents of e-mail boxes and news headlines.

Account aggregation programs vary in content and sophistication. Spalding prefers a program known as “Wealth Check” because of its ability to store critical documents as well as provide a running tally of the client’s net worth on a daily basis.

According to Spalding, many of the programs and websites available can get the job done, but he likes Wealth Check because it pulls together all assets, including real estate, bank accounts, investment vehicles, credit cards, frequent flyer points and other financial-related records. “The key to selecting any form of account aggregation is to select a program that best fits your individual needs,” says Spalding. Wealth Check, like some other programs, allows important non-financial documents to be included in the aggregation report as well. “By simply scanning documents like wills, healthcare directives, insurance policies and deeds, you can create a one-stop place for all your important documents to make it easy for your loved ones when they need to access them.”

“I like to tell my clients that using account aggregation software is like writing a love letter to the most important people in their lives. Think about how important it could be to have all of your important financial information in one place,” says Spalding. “As a society, we are more mobile than ever. Online account aggregation programs make critical information accessible from anywhere in the world.”

Spalding believes five tips will assist anyone in getting their financial house in order.

RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH

As with any consumer good, Spalding recommends that those looking for account aggregation research the company that provides the service. “While cost is a factor for many people, the least expensive option in account aggregation software is not always the best,” says Spalding. “You want to critically look at the company and examine what measures it takes to ensure the safety and security of your personal financial information. You may want to pay special attention to whether or not the company sells its information to other companies for marketing purposes.” Spalding warns that if a company sells its client’s information to other companies, the client could be subject to a plethora of unwanted product advertising and their personal information could be compromised. “You also want to ensure that you are using a program that offers high-level security access that is re-encrypted each time you utilize the software.”

EVALUATE ONLINE SOFTWARE

Because there are several kinds of account aggregation software available, both online and offline, Spalding suggests that those considering using these programs must decide between online and offline options. “Both online and offline software has its advantages,” says Spalding. “My preference is for an online system because those programs often have the capability to pull your financial information from several different places to provide a holistic snapshot of your financial house. This account ‘scraping’ is one of the main reasons that I prefer online software like Wealth Check” An additional added benefit of online software is that it is often backed up on a server to ensure that if a consumer’s computer crashes, that the information one has come to rely on will still be available. Online software also allows access to the information 24/7 from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection.

AND OFFLINE SOFTWARE

Traditional software can have its advantages as well according to Spalding. One of the major advantages is that personal information is not “out there” in cyberspace; this alleviates the potential for hackers to be able to access the sensitive personal financial information. “The downside is that because the information is not kept on a server other than your own, if your computer crashes, the information may be gone for good,” says Spalding. “An easy fix for that solution is to purchase a portable hard drive or a flash disk to keep the information separate from your computer’s main hard drive.”

Safety and Ethics in Healthcare: A Guide to Getting It Right

As more and more people survive into old age, the burden of caring for them becomes greater and greater. Although it is now possible to alleviate many of the afflictions that beset mankind, no society can afford to pay for all the healthcare that is now available or technically possible. People working in healthcare increasingly have to do more with less. Rationing takes many forms, mostly covert, and the less privileged in most societies end up struggling to get their proper share of the available healthcare resources. All too often, those in the front-line have to deal with the consequences of this ‘rationing by default’: healthcare professionals find themselves rushed off their feet simply doing the basic tasks and completing all the paperwork; placing frail, sick people in ever lengthening queues, sometimes asking them to wait for hours in the middle of the night under uncomfortable and even unsafe conditions; and, worst of all, working under conditions they would rather avoid in which the safety margin for those they are caring for has been greatly diminished. We are all aware that under these conditions the chance of making a mistake which can seriously harm or even lead to the death of a patient is greatly increased. But what can be done about this? How can you be sure that you are doing the right thing when faced with having to practice an uncertain science on vulnerable patients in a complex system under ever-changing conditions? At what point could you cross the invisible line from reasonable to irresponsible or unethical behaviour by tolerating conditions or tacitly accepting practices which may be regarded as unacceptable, even though you may have little immediate control over them? This book is a guide to getting it right for healthcare professionals. It is about doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, for the right people. These are the dimensions of quality in healthcare, and although some are in conflict (equitable access and efficiency, for example), adherence to ethical practice and professional behaviour will help lead healthcare practitioners through the minefield of responsibilities and priorities. Real-life situations are integral to the book, with over 500 clinical examples referred to within the text.
