No this is not about some mushy standoff scene when someone must choose between two people. Oh my goodness that was simple, you just take the one in the middle. Anyways, when someone is affected by heart disease they usually want time to think things over. They worry about being able to afford medications, physician visits and of course the surgery if needed and the cardiac therapy that one undergoes afterwards. Much of the problem is financial for most and of course you need those loved ones to assist you along the way by driving you around because people with severe heart disease people usually don't drive as much as they used to and especially after surgery, they need to be careful. Yes, there's paratransit but you cannot call them just as you would a taxi, and those are really expensive. On my salary, that is a no, no! So those who are unable to get around will need to take public transportation or have someone take them to and from until they can do so themselves. Westchester County is not New York City so the buses here are awful, just awful. I don't get a lunch hour but the second bus I take to get the the job I have only comes once an hour. Yes, I dislike Westchester. When patients are having difficulties with their heart, unless of course you want to provide them with the more inexpensive way of rehab by having them walk in extremely hot or cold weather including snow and ice to get to an appointment, let alone crossing highways or roads really meant for vehicle travel, because the bus only comes once an hour they need to figure out how they will manage and adjust to their medical circumstances. The decisions here are not favorable. I really dislike Westchester. A patient can tell the physician, "Give me a minute to think about it.". Well, your heart may decide that that was a very long minute or that time is simply up. In that instance what do you do in the event that you did not get a chance to put things in perspective and or arrange an alternate way of life in terms of your medical condition that the physician has informed you of? Hospitals take a chance on allowing a patient to be with people they consider loved ones, so that they can enjoy quality life. Meanwhile the heart is saying do these people know me and the s---, I'm really capable of? Holidays become difficult because physicians go trollying off to the Hamptons- I can't afford that unless I listen to music or the Berkshires- but I get no 401(k) play on my J-O-B so that is out of the question. If a patient becomes ill, then their primary is not around and now they must go to some ER in a hospital. Should hospitals require heart patients who want to leave the hospital, on their own terms to spend time with people they consider loved ones, request that they wear external defibrillators to prevent heart attacks? Yes, you may say, but once a patient leaves the hospital, the hospital is not responsible. Duh, like your two feet- the law is a double edged sword. That loved ones family sues because they will claim that the hospital was negligent in allowing a patient to leave in that condition. That innocent, "I just want to free from wires, needles and hospital people.", now becomes a lawsuit for months and years to come. The external defibrillator is what a hospital can use to not only monitor patients who have known heart conditions and who leave to go home for a day or so, but they can also inform them when a patient is in distress and assist if emergency care is needed. Heart decision- patients should wear an external defibrillator- as an outpatient procedure. This will assist the patient and prevent hospital lawsuits!
I'm sure there are many more people other than myself who dislike hospitals, physician offices, radiology facilities among other things. Last week, I discussed laboratory mergers due to the demand of lab testing that occurs. I'm no physician but my question is, if one had the opportunity to avoid blood draws for everything from glucose, PT/INR, and let's say CBC count and CMP just to name a few would you do so? Not everyone has a job or career that they can just leave every month depending on your health and various conditions that you need to see a physician for. A visit to such a medical facility may keep you away from the office for more than just lunch time. This means that with follow-up visits and other testing for every ache and pain you will be away from work hours at a time, gosh I hope you have some understanding employers. Iatrogenic anemia or hospital anemia occurs when a patient gets anemia as a result of too much blood being taken from their veins due to lab testing. The body loses blood since it goes into a vial for testing and the oxygen carrying blood blood or hemoglobin(rbc) decreases. As the hemoglobin in the body decreases, it is said to become iron deficient because iron is needed to transport oxygen through the blood and without it abnormal heart rates, chest pain and shortness of breath occur. Medical technology is expensive and it may take some time until such testing is computerized with only a single needle poke that occurs every few days or so. With the focus or electronic lab testing, patients can have their labs that need to be done every few hours a day done by having a needle prong inserted only once during their brief hospital day. With Rolling Lab Testing a patient has a sensor that is attached to a tiny needle needle placed on top of the skin somewhere on their body. This sensor has the capability of monitoring blood levels that include CMP, CBC, hemoglobin A1C, PT/INR, thyroid and lipid testing all at once. Each prong on the needle is used for a specific test or test panel. Once this needle prong as a one time stick is placed onto the body, it provides rolling lab results for these tests electronically. This eliminates finding a vein several times a day and causing agony and discomfort to a patient. The Rolling Lab Testing Prong, is of course disposable and is only for one patient use at a time, meaning it cannot be sterilized or reused. The Rolling Lab Testing Prong is equipped with a sensor that sends test data to the Rolling Lab Testing Software for results. Such technology is crucial to have when you have patients who are elderly, very sick, handicapped and unable to tolerate constant blood draws or just difficult to draw blood from. The Rolling Lab Testing device and software is designed to un-complicate the need for many needle sticks in a single day. It can be used on patients during their hospital stay or even as an outpatient lab monitoring routine. This will enable physicians to still get paid by videoconferencing with their patients as they chat and monitor their results while a patient is at home. The Rolling Lab Testing Prong just needs to be replaced every few days to prevent infection and the great thing about it is that it does not require surgery to be implanted or put onto the body. Just clean the skin, wipe and stick. With Rolling Lab Testing a patient can be tested for the usual labs without risk of iatrogenic anemia occurring due to the lack of oxygen due to blood loss.
When I began doing what I as a job, I don't call it a career because I didn't choose it. There were laboratories that processed blood, urine and other types of specimens around and they still exist. However, they accepted all of the health insurances so we really only needed to use one. Soon afterwards, health insurance companies began to negotiate rates for different tests and they decided to use other labs as their exclusive or preferred laboratory. This was still before the affordable care act. As a result medical offices had to use a lab according to the patients health insurance. This is sort of like working in two different countries. The work is the same but the language is different. Then years later the affordable care act came along and guess what? The laboratories that were most common among the medical world were suddenly not in network with certain health insurance companies. In that instance labs are either processed at a hospital near the medical office or at a laboratory in network but a distance away. This means, and you guessed it, like working in another country. The front desk office worker went from uni, bi to tri all in one job span. There are other labs who have expanded their network by way of areas, counties that they offer to process labs, but are not considered preferred or exclusive to any health insurance company. It may be a problem if a patient has to pay out of pocket if the health insurance company decides that the laboratory is not a designated lab to use. With many people still not able to afford to use their health insurance, deductibles are very high; patients often times may not want their physician to order many tests because of their cost. If labs are not being utilized often, how do they stay in business? They offer EMR services and many kinds of testing that can determine the extent or severity of an illness without having to undergo a biopsy or procedure. A merger of sorts would help the medical world not only be consistent with lab results, and ordering tests. It would also help with cost effectiveness because each lab processes the same type of test or test panel, if they restructure how each test is done and where it would reduce the cost to perform them. The universal test requisition can be used and only one website to access completed test results and order tests ect., if a merger is done. Why do we need different test numbers for each lab? Am I taking away the competition that is supposed to be healthy? Of course not. A laboratory can continue to exist, but it may be a lot less expensive to maintain and that cost effectiveness could reduce lab costs for patients overall. Also, the laboratory testing companies could offer for a small fee rapid PT/INR testing machines for medical office use, along with urinalysis testing equipment. Don't giggle at me! Think of all the bleeping money you save from having your stat driver pick up said specimen and then for a nearby hospital to process it and send the results to the medical office. Think of all the money you could save if you offered this kind of equipment, look at all of the medical offices and facilities out there that outsource their labs. A laboratory merger is necessary to reduce costs not only for a lab company itself but for patients who use them.
Often times a patient will make an appointment to see a physician and the physician will ask "Why are you here?" Ok, so it seems that we have a physician who is looking at the news or some other sort of events that have nothing to do with the patient. This isn't technology at it's best and such reasoning as to what caused the appointment should not be ambiguous, unfortunately sometimes it is and then you have to rely on good ole historical facts and implement other ways of self-help. My issue with physicians is that they get paid by the volume(they don't seem to hear this too well) they do not get paid by the hour as would a person who is employed in a legal aspect. This means that a physician cannot sit and chat it up like they are talking with a buddy or relative and as though they are working or legal cases and matters. Sure they rack up the hours but how much work do they get paid for? This would depend on how much they really do and what they actually do. So if you chats and chats and are unable to charge the patient for all of the chatting on an hourly basis how much do you earn? Then there's the miserable front desk office worker who would rather be doing something else that makes her happy and certainly provides her with a living wage, but then due to ambiguous methods some things become a living wage and such as the unhappiness. In a physicians office as far as I know they do not get paid or bill by the hour, the charges are usually procedure based. Since they are, unless a physician does procedures they can bill a lot of money for then they will not get paid. "Why are you here?" It would seem that any sentence proven to be worth it's salt eventually would fulfill itself..."Does the sentence ask to come or is that the point of any action? Physicians function like words without any connected meaning or incoherent lines that are supposed to indicate structure. Sure, I look around and I see the sentence as others do also; people see it as fitting the action-as they enjoy persecution as a reminder of the old. The ensures that a living wage and other benefits are not possible. Patients in and out like incoherent words of a sentence. What can be done AD? When you restructure the medicine the way you would implement billing for legal services, charges for quarterly, half, three-quarters or hourly should become standard in addition to procedures such as ekg's, holters, labs, echo's, stress echo's, urine ect.. By doing so this becomes compensatory to the physician and medical office as a whole. When a patient receives a vaccine from the physician's office, the patient is billed for not only the vaccine(unless he or she provides it), they are also billed for administrating the vaccine. This is the neglect in medicine. There are regular codes for office visits and ones for procedures, but those charges are not established as hourly or otherwise. They simply involve the type of visit regardless of time and that is important. That scope of time has a peculiar stench to it-evil, when visits are words incoherently used for sentence or in a days work. It should be permitted to charge patients on the basis of time and procedure. The administration of all effort is not being compensated for and this has been allowed for quite a while, medical charges are not done by the hour regarding rates and fees; and because of it "Why are you here?, has become the sentence. This is just evolution of procedure, especially when one makes the effort of standing on their own two feet. You can't possibly expect me to be happy. PS. You don't break bread with people who don't break even- if you're in this situation- they broke you or cheapened by giving someone else one or a leg up in all of this!
You know it was one thing to prevent people from taking information from chips and anything stored on a card used for money. Life has become the huge bubble that has simply burst over time. We have come to a financial revolution that has now embarked into the computing and or technological saga and thus has left the physical world. What in the hecks am I talking about? Ok, cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency that is mined or created electronically. It has a save the forest mentality. Some forms of cryptocurrency have a monetary value, by this I mean that it can be used to purchase goods or services just like money, credit or debit. Think of cryptocurrency as the degree-proof college degree. Please, make some "cents" to this. Ok, the government prints more and more money resulting from the national debt and as such the value of the dollar decreases. This has occurred in countries that have gone bankrupt and they had to print more and more money because their dollar had begun to decrease in value. When all was said and done they ended up converting over to another form of currency eg. euros, why? because of hyperinflation. The money gets printed to pay for what is spent, but it can never seem to make up for the rising costs of goods and services and as a result the dollar becomes worthless. This is similar to that degree-proof college degree. Schools each year churn out graduates and then a employment debt occurs and there are no jobs worth the value of the degree. So what happens?, people with college degrees convert over to a decentralized way of living or employment in order to establish monetary survival. In some countries once access is open to all and not just the elite many things become devalued and in that presents a lack of opportunity and the jobs go elsewhere to create a devalued and basically worthless system consisting of poverty because the goal here was to devalue progress in exchange for personal endeavor, lust, preference, supremacy ect. Now that we have discussed all of that, cryptocurrency is the alternative to monetary value and exchange because it is supposedly meant to increase in value and give rise to a healthy and thriving economy regardless of person or origin. Cryptocurrency storage holds the value of the cryptocurrency that can be used to make a financial transaction or even a business one. This stuff gets real advancey! The ledger or what is known as a blockchain is the link to the whole thing that indicates what transaction took place. for example the cryptocurrency from the sender, the amount of the transaction and the receiver of the cryptocurrency. Because the value of cryptocurrency is very high, there is always the risk of hackers that will try to access data in order to take your cryptocurrency. RFID or radio frequency identification can be used to do this if people are using external storage for their private cryptocurrency information in an electronic format. The use of RFID can be used to obtain cryptocurrency information if it is not protected from RFID readers or scanners. RFID storage holders are essential for people who are using their cryptocurrency on a regular basis and need to protect themselves from people attempting to obtain that information electronically. As money or the value of becomes more and more electronic we need to prevent the devaluation of it from hackers. Currency, electronic or physical is usually of value when it is earned, rather than just given...like some other things. RFID protection for cryptocurrency, safety for the alternative currency!
