Clinical and therapeutic course in head variants of linear morphea in adults: a retrospective review
This study describes the clinical course, autoimmune co-morbidities, complications, and treatment of adults with PRS/ECDS at a tertiary referral center. We retrospectively reviewed the records of all 34 adult patients with PRS/ECDS identified through billing code search and seen by dermatologists at our institution between 2015 and 2021. Eight patients (23.5%) had ECDS, 8 (23.5%) had PRS, and 18 (52.9%) had overlap. Twenty-six patients (76.5%) reported ocular, oral, and/or neurologic symptoms, and 8 (23.5%) had concomitant autoimmune/inflammatory conditions. Sixteen patients (47.1%) had a skin biopsy, and 25 (73.5%) had im...

Hospitalists ’ Reflections Offer Hope and Optimism for the Coming Years
As we come to the close of 2022, we take a moment to reflect on what we’ve learned these last few years, and more importantly, what new challenges and opportunities lie ahead. We spoke with hospitalists and leaders from a variety of institutions to get their feedback. The views they’ve shared are their own and not those of their institutions. Dr. Thompson Rachel Thompson, MD, MPH, FACP, SFHM, SHM president, is the chief medical officer at Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and Public Health District in Snoqualmie, Wash. Dr. Thompson says the most important lesson hospitalists have learned in the last three years is that the...

Development of magnetic resonance imaging installation reporting information systems gatot soebroto hospital, jakarta
Technological developments in the era of globalization make technology an important pillar in everyday life, especially in the health sector, all technologies utilize sophisticated and modern tools that can minimize and streamline all types of work. At the Radiology Installation of Gatot Soebroto Hospital, the registration system for patient registration is carried out with SIMRS which is used only for patient registration and billing systems, but has not been able to accommodate further recording and reporting related to quality assurance in the implementation of MRI radiology services, so reporting data management is sti...

Sensors, Vol. 22, Pages 9323: Machine Learning-Based Ensemble Classifiers for Anomaly Handling in Smart Home Energy Consumption Data
Kannan Addressing data anomalies (e.g., garbage data, outliers, redundant data, and missing data) plays a vital role in performing accurate analytics (billing, forecasting, load profiling, etc.) on smart homes’ energy consumption data. From the literature, it has been identified that the data imputation with machine learning (ML)-based single-classifier approaches are used to address data quality issues. However, these approaches are not effective to address the hidden issues of smart home energy consumption data due to the presence of a variety of anomalies. Hence, this paper proposes ML-based ensemble ...

VPS34-dependent control of apical membrane function of proximal tubule cells and nutrient recovery by the kidney
Sci Signal. 2022 Nov 29;15(762):eabo7940. doi: 10.1126/scisignal.abo7940. Epub 2022 Nov 29.ABSTRACTThe lipid kinase VPS34 orchestrates autophagy, endocytosis, and metabolism and is implicated in cancer and metabolic disease. The proximal tubule in the kidney is a key metabolic organ that controls reabsorption of nutrients such as fatty acids, amino acids, sugars, and proteins. Here, by combining metabolomics, proteomics, and phosphoproteomics analyses with functional and superresolution imaging assays of mice with an inducible deficiency in proximal tubular cells, we revealed that VPS34 controlled the metabolome of the pro...

Costs and Effects of School-Based Licensed Practical Nurses on Elementary Student Attendance and Chronic Absenteeism
AbstractDespite increasing reliance on licensed practical nurses (LPNs) to provide health services in schools, we do not know whether this is a cost-effective prevention strategy against student absenteeism. Therefore, we evaluated the costs and effectiveness of an LPN-based school nursing program for improving attendance and chronic absenteeism at a large, urban school district in the southeastern USA. We first identified a matched set of 46 elementary schools (23 nurse, 23 no-nurse) by using an optimal multilevel matching algorithm based on student- and school-level characteristics. We then conducted a cost-effectiveness...

Development and Implementation of a Semi-Automated Workflow for Point-of-Care Ultrasound Billing and Documentation Within an Electronic Health Record
AbstractPoint-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is widely used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. With its many advantages, including ease of use, real-time multisystem assessment, affordability, availability, and accuracy, it has been adopted by all medical specialties. Despite its advantages, the lack of standard workflow and automated billing solutions makes it difficult to launch a comprehensive POCUS program. In this work, we describe how we created and implemented an efficient standardized EHR-based workflow for POCUS that has been used across multiple division and settings within our organization.
