With the advent of accountable care organizations and health homes, there is an increased focus on care coordination. In these collaborative arrangements, there are challenges to coordinating care across institutional boundaries. Much is known about the challenges but there remain unsolved questions about how to address them. This panel convened experts from a variety of settings to review what is being done today, what we know needs to be done, and the things that we still need to figure out. Panelists: Susan Beane, MD — Vice President and Medical Director, Healthfirst Neil Calman, MD — President and Co-Founder, Institute for Urban Family Health; Chairman of Family Medicine and Community Health, Mount Sinai School of Medicine Alex Federman, MD — Division Chief of General Internal Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine Thomas Moore, MPA — Vice President for Care Coordination, Healthix www.DigitalHealthConference.com www.nyehealth.org

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) September 10, 2012

Critical Path Institute and CDISC (Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium) announce the availability of a breakthrough tool to help combat tuberculosis (TB)a persistent disease resulting in 1.7 million deaths globally each year.

This new toola standardized way to report research datais critical for advancing new TB drug regimens. For the first time, researchers are able to combine and evaluate data from multiple studies using a common approach. This will help accelerate the development of new TB drugs by enhancing the design of clinical trials and the evaluation of new drugs. The TB data standards will also assist the regulatory review process for new drug development tools, such as clinical trial simulation models and methods to evaluate treatment endpoints.

The scope of this project was immense and its delivery in nine months was made possible by the smooth collaboration among C-Path, CDISC, FDA, industry partners and the many volunteers who participated in this effort through the Critical Path to TB Drug Regimens initiative, says Dr. Carolyn Compton, President and CEO of Critical Path Institute.

The Critical Path to TB Drug Regimens (CPTR) initiative is a global collaboration among pharmaceutical companies, academia, patient advocacy groups, and regulatory bodies having the shared goal of accelerating the development of new drug regimens targeting TB.

A tremendous amount of innovation has enabled an exciting new era of TB drug development, says Dr. Mel Spigelman, President and CEO, TB Alliance. To support a regimen-based development approach, the research and regulatory communities need new standards and platforms to help conduct, submit, and review this work. This new standard is an example of such a tool and will benefit both researchers and regulators, ultimately helping to ensure new TB cures reach those who need them as quickly as possible.

TB Standards/2

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified TB as one of several disease areas having a critical need for data standards. CDISC is very pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with the FDA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Alliance for TB Drug Development, and C-Path to complete this TB standard work, based in part on preliminary work conducted through a National Institutes of Health Roadmap grant and clinical terminology support provided through our partnership with the National Cancer Institutes Enterprise Vocabulary Services, says Bron Kisler, VP, Strategic Initiatives and CDISC lead on the project. CDISC standards are vendor-neutral, platform independent, and publically available through the CDISC website at http://www.cdisc.org/therapeutic.

Future CDISC therapeutic area data standards will be developed under the leadership of CFAST (Coalition For Accelerating Standards and Therapies), a joint endeavor between C-Path and CDISC to accelerate clinical research and medical product development by creating and maintaining data standards, tools, and methods for conducting research in therapeutic areas important to public health.

ABOUT CRITICAL PATH INSTITUTE (C-PATH): Established in 2005 as a non-profit organization, C-Path was formed with public and private philanthropic support from the University of Arizona, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Tucson community. Additional funding has been provided by Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz). C-Path is committed to improving human health and well-being by developing new technologies and methods to accelerate the development and review of medical products. An international leader in forming collaborations around this mission, C-Path has established global, public-private partnerships that include more than 1,000 scientists from government regulatory agencies, academia, patient advocacy organizations, and 41 major pharmaceutical companies. C-Path has headquarters in Tucson, AZ and an office in Rockville, MD. For more information, visit http://www.c-path.org and follow us on Facebook.

ABOUT CDISC

CDISC is a 501(c)(3) global non-profit charitable organization, with nearly 300 supporting member organizations from across the clinical research and healthcare arenas. Through the efforts of volunteers around the globe, CDISC catalyzes productive collaboration to develop industry-wide data standards enabling the harmonization of clinical data and streamlining research processes from protocol through analysis and reporting, including the use of electronic health records to facilitate the collection of high quality research data. The CDISC standards and innovations can decrease the time and cost of medical research and improve quality, thus contributing to the faster development of safer and more effective medical products and a learning healthcare system. The CDISC Vision is to inform patient care and safety through higher quality medical research.

Roanoke, Virginia (PRWEB) December 09, 2011

The behavioral stuttering therapy and technology-driven tools provided by Hollins Communications Research Institute (HCRI http://www.stuttering.org), a non-profit center specializing in stuttering research and therapy innovation, are in lockstep with growing consumer trends for more do-it-yourself health management and monitoring.

This week, research and trend organization Trendwatching.com published its report on the 12 Crucial Consumer Trends for 2012, which includes the spiraling use of new apps and devices to evaluate personal health. Based on the ever-increasing desire among consumers to discreetly track and manage their health by themselves, do-it-yourself monitoring is listed as Trendwatching.coms second most important trend for the coming year. (For the full list of the 12 Crucial Consumer Trends for 2012, published by Trendwatching.com, visit /trendwatching.com/trends/12trends2012/.)

Our approach to stuttering treatment and post-therapy support are consistent with this 2012 trend, said HCRI President Ronald L. Webster, Ph.D. At our stuttering therapy center, we help people retrain their speech muscles to generate fluent speech, which puts them in control of their stuttering. Then, to maintain long-term fluency, we provide clients with ongoing clinician support and an arsenal of self-directed tools, including a web-based fluency practice system and a proprietary app that runs on iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads, Webster added.

According to a September, 2011 report by MobiHealthNews, a company that chronicles the healthcare sectors adoption of mobile technology, there are close to 9,000 mobile health apps and that number is expected to increase by more than 30 percent over the next six months. While the majority of apps are offered to the public through Apples app store, HCRIs fluency practice app is only available through the Institute to people who have participated in HCRIs 12-day stuttering therapy program. Designed to reinforce and hone fluency skills learned during treatment, HCRIs app is provided free to all clients.

Similar to the app, HCRIs internet-based home practice system, FluencyNet, helps clients review and fine-tune their speaking skills using the same physical measurements used during HCRI therapy. The Institutes program participants also benefit from other post-therapy support including clinician follow-up; refresher courses; fluency practice groups and conference calls; HCRI-produced CDs and program manuals; and client events.

The Institute offers 17 stuttering therapy programs annually. Treatment involves teaching people how to replace faulty speech muscle movements that cause stuttering with new muscle behaviors that generate fluency. Research shows that 93 percent of HCRI clients achieve fluent speech by the end of their 12-day treatment program. Follow-up studies show 70 to 75 percent of program participant maintain fluency for the long-term.
