Postgaming Sunday ’ s Graham-Cassidy Action
By PAUL KONNOTH Another day, another draft of Graham-Cassidy. And yet another slew of special deals for Alaska, which I have criticized as unconstitutional elsewhere. Congressional Republicans must pass their recent version of Obamacare repeal by September 30 to avoid the filibuster rules that are usually applicable, and which would require a 60 vote threshold. Until then, they need only 50 of the Senate’s 52 GOP Senators to eke out a victory. John McCain has said he won’t vote for the bill; Susan Collins has said she is leaning against it. Rand Paul, after signalling early d...

Microsoft Set To Demo VR/Mixed reality Physician Education Platform
Dr. Simon Kos had big shoes to fill when he took over the role of Microsoft Chief Medical Officer from Dr. Bill Crounse last year. Dr. Kos said himself that they were some “big scrubs to fill”. However, at the time he had already been with Microsoft for six years and in Health IT for more than a decade before that, so he was no doubt up to the challenge. As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kos is responsible for providing clinical guidance, worldwide thought leadership, vision and strategy for Microsoft technologies and solutions in the healthcare industries. He made the move to Health IT after working a few years as...

An Op-Ed Ghostwriter Speaks

As Ohio Goes, So May Go the Nation:   The Patient Access Expansion Act
By NIRAN AL-AGBA, MD According to recent Ohio statistics, 1.3 million people have limited or no access to primary care physicians. Based on the 2015 Ohio Primary Care Assessment, 60 of 88 Ohio counties have medically-underserved populations.  The Patient Access Expansion Act (HB 273), co-sponsored by Representative Theresa Gavarone (3rd District) and Representative Terry Johnson (90th District), specifically addresses healthcare access by prohibiting physicians from being required to comply with maintenance of certification (MOC) as a condition to obtain licensure, reimbursement for work, employment, or admitting priv...

Maintenance of Certification: Who ’s Regulating the Regulators?
By RICH DUSZAK, MD When four physician certification boards founded the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) in 1933, those forward thinking organizations—and their professional society sponsors—launched a national movement toward ever increasing physician accountability. Back then, quackery was rampant, so “board certification” meant a lot to patients. The ABMS has since grown to 24 member boards, all ostensibly dedicated to serving “the public and the medical profession by improving the quality of health care through setting professional standards for lifetime certification.” B...

Larry Weed ’ s Legacy and the Next Generation of Clinical Decision Support
BY LINCOLN WEED, JD “Patients are sitting on a treasure trove of data about their own medical conditions.” My late father, Dr. Lawrence L. Weed (LLW), made this point the day before he died. He was talking about the lost wealth of neglected patient data—readily available, richly detailed data that too often go unidentified and unexamined. Why does that happen, and what can be done about it? The risk of missed information From the very outset of medical problem-solving, LLW argued, patients and practitioners face greater risk of loss and harm than they may realize.

Giving a Voice To Healthcare ’ s ‘Unacceptables’
By Indu Subaiya Humans are aspirational by nature. We dream big and invest tools that help us dream bigger. But we forget—sometimes willfully—that many of us are being left behind—because of racial, cultural or gender biases; poor access to connected technologies; or social stigmas associated with loneliness and sexual assault. But if working in healthcare over the past 10 years have demonstrated anything, it’s that we are ready and willing to do something about the problems that keep all of us from looking to brighter futures.

Bringing Behavioral Health into Primary Care Settings

Traditionally, behavioral health and medical health operated separately, but in recent years, the integration of these two systems has improved access to care, ensured continuity of care, reduced stigma associated with seeking care and allowed for earlier detection and treatment of mental health and substance abuse issues. By bringing behavioral health specialists into primary care facilities, healthcare systems have streamlined c...

My Husband Outlived His Brain Tumor Prognosis by 12 Years: How His Experience Could Help John McCain and Others
In conclusion, I would never advise John McCain and his family, or any other GBM patient, as to which of these treatments—or which combination of treatments—they should use. I hope they will learn about all of them, and decide on their own which one or ones they would like to try. I would also encourage them to do their own research, or to hire a researcher with experience in finding sensible, science-based, cutting-edge treatments. I am very worried that they will not know about these treatments, and others like them, and will just use the standard of care. That would be a shame. It might also be a death sent...

By STEVEN FINDLAY The latest Republican attempt to repeal and replace the ACA looks a lot like what they were trying to do in May, June and July—and failed to do. But actually, the framing of the current effort—the Graham-Cassidy bill—is much more deeply grounded in the perennial debate over where political power resides in the U.S.:  the federal government or the states.   Graham-Cassidy also more starkly reflects what many conservatives are trying to achieve in health care policy.   And what they are trying to achieve is, to put it euphemistically, not nice.   On both coun...

By ASHISH JHA, MD Austin Frakt and Aaron Carroll recently approached me about a New York Times UpShot piece aiming to rank eight healthcare systems they had chosen: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
