(WASHINGTON) — New rules from the Trump administration on Friday would require insurers and hospitals to disclose upfront the actual prices for common tests and procedures to promote competition and push down costs. The sweeping changes face stiff pushback from the health care industry and could be challenged in court. Even in an ideal world where information flows freely, patients and their families would have to deal with a learning curve to become comfortable with the intricacies of health care billing. “This shadowy system has to change,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said. “The ...

The role of multiple global change factors in driving soil functions and microbial biodiversity
Soils underpin terrestrial ecosystem functions, but they face numerous anthropogenic pressures. Despite their crucial ecological role, we know little about how soils react to more than two environmental factors at a time. Here, we show experimentally that increasing the number of simultaneous global change factors (up to 10) caused increasing directional changes in soil properties, soil processes, and microbial communities, though there was greater uncertainty in predicting the magnitude of change. Our study provides a blueprint for addressing multifactor change with an efficient, broadly applicable experimental design for...

New partnership helps small businesses connect their employees to addiction services
Joe Tunney said his roofing contracting company used to observe a "zero tolerance" substance and drug use policy. That meant if an employee was suspected of having a substance problem, they would have to submit to a drug test. And if the test came back positive, the employee would be terminated. That policy has changed, since Tunney learned that two employees who had been terminated had ultimately succumbed to their addictions, and passed away. Tunney is president of American Design and Build…

Primary care networks: a pre-mortem to identify potential risks
This working paper presents six risks that could lead to the failure of primary care networks (PCNs): failure could be inherent in the policy design; PCNs may not be able to create effective organisations; PCNs could have a lack of focus; PCNs could experience failures of leadership and followership; PCNs could become overwhelmed by external pressure; and failure could be unfairly identified too early.
