  14. Effect of urban growth on streamflow regimen of Permanente Creek, Santa Clara County, California

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Harris, E.E.; Rantz, S.E.

    1964-01-01

    This report presents the results of an investigation of the effect of urban growth on the streamflow regimen of Permanente Creek in Mountain View, Santa Clara County, Calif. The data available did not permit a complete study of all hydrologic aspects, but there is conclusive evidence that the volume of storm runoff produced by rainfall on the valley floor has increased substantially as a result of urbanization. In 1945, storm runoff from the 5.12-square mile project area was insufficient to balance channel losses, and the streamflow entering the project area in the Permanente Creek channel was greater than that leaving the area. If, however, total outflow from the project area is considered to be the sum of the streamflow leaving the area plus channel seepage in the area, the ratio of total outflow to inflow was 1:18. By 1958, storm runoff from the project area was far in excess of channel losses and the ratio of total outflow to inflow was 1:70. This increase in outflow is attributed to the fact that urban development during the period 1945 to 1958 increased the extent of impervious surface in the project area from about 4 percent to 19 percent. The effect of urban growth in other basins in Santa Clara County should be investigated before any attempt is made to project the quantitative results of this study to other areas in the county.

    1991-11-01

    The relationship of retirement and use of medical services was investigated among members of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program in Northern California. A mailed survey of a 10 percent random sample of members 60-66 years old (N = 10,202) was followed by a telephone interview of (a) all respondents who had planned to retire in the next year, and (b) a random sample of respondents who had not planned to retire: 253 had retired (Retired group) and 238 were still working 20 hours a week or more (Not Retired group). Medical charts were reviewed for one year before and after the retirement date for the Retired group and for one year before and after a randomly assigned anchor date for the Not Retired group. With the exception of urgent care and emergency visits, no significant difference was found between the two groups in overall use of outpatient and inpatient services following retirement.

    2002-01-01

    In 1996, the eight-million member Kaiser Permanente HMO adopted a vision statement that said by 2005 it would expand its services to include home- and community-based services for its members with disabilities. It funded a 3-year, 32-site demonstration that showed that it was feasible to link HMO services with existing home-and community-based (HCB) services and that members appreciated the improved coordination and access. This private-sector project showed that devolution can produce innovative and feasible models of care, but it also showed that without federal financial and regulatory support, such models are unlikely to take hold if they are focused on "unprofitable" populations, for example, those who are chronically ill, poor, and/or disabled.

    We review what is known about the effects of obesity in the Kaiser Permanente (KP) population and discuss outcomes for two nationally available effective online programs, HealthMedia Balance (Balance) and 10,000 Steps. Obese KP patients often have health problems related to overweight and report difficulties with self-care, yet with the proper support, they can avail themselves of effective treatment to manage both obesity and associated conditions that affect quality of life. Clinicians should be aware of potential problems with functional status and self-care in their obese patients, provide brief assessment and advice, and refer obese patients to effective national and regional weight-management programs.

  18. Is the Kaiser Permanente model superior in terms of clinical integration?: a comparative study of Kaiser Permanente, Northern California and the Danish healthcare system

    PubMed Central

    2010-01-01

    Background Integration of medical care across clinicians and settings could enhance the quality of care for patients. To date, there is limited data on the levels of integration in practice. Our objective was to compare primary care clinicians' perceptions of clinical integration and three sub-aspects in two healthcare systems: Kaiser Permanente, Northern California (KPNC) and the Danish healthcare system (DHS). Further, we examined the associations between specific organizational factors and clinical integration within each system. Methods Comparable questionnaires were sent to a random sample of primary care clinicians in KPNC (n = 1103) and general practitioners in DHS (n = 700). Data were analysed using multiple logistic regression models. Results More clinicians in KPNC perceived to be part of a clinical integrated environment than did general practitioners in the DHS (OR = 3.06, 95% CI: 2.28, 4.12). Further, more KPNC clinicians reported timeliness of information transfer (OR = 2.25, 95% CI: 1.62, 3.13), agreement on roles and responsibilities (OR = 1.79, 95% CI: 1.30, 2.47) and established coordination mechanisms in place to ensure effective handoffs (OR = 6.80, 95% CI: 4.60, 10.06). None of the considered organizational factors in the sub-country analysis explained a substantial proportion of the variation in clinical integration. Conclusions More primary care clinicians in KPNC reported clinical integration than did general practitioners in the DHS. Focused measures of clinical integration are needed to develop the field of clinical integration and to create the scientific foundation to guide managers searching for evidence based approaches.

    2002-01-01

    Objective To compare the costs and performance of the NHS with those of an integrated system for financing and delivery health services (Kaiser Permanente) in California. Methods The adjusted costs of the two systems and their performance were compared with respect to inputs, use, access to services, responsiveness, and limited quality indicators. Results The per capita costs of the two systems, adjusted for differences in benefits, special activities, population characteristics, and the cost environment, were similar to within 10%. Some aspects of performance differed. In particular, Kaiser members experience more comprehensive and convenient primary care services and much more rapid access to specialist services and hospital admissions. Age adjusted rates of use of acute hospital services in Kaiser were one third of those in the NHS. Conclusions The widely held beliefs that the NHS is efficient and that poor performance in certain areas is largely explained by underinvestment are not supported by this analysis. Kaiser achieved better performance at roughly the same cost as the NHS because of integration throughout the system, efficient management of hospital use, the benefits of competition, and greater investment in information technology. What is already known on this topicComparisons of healthcare systems in different countries have to be undertaken with great care but can be instructiveThe overall healthcare system in the United States is more expensive than the NHS and population health outcomes are no betterThe US healthcare system comprises many discrete and unique subsystems, including the health maintenance organisationsWhat this paper addsAn integrated, non-profit health maintenance organisation in California (Kaiser Permanente), with over six million members, costs about the same as the NHS but performs considerably betterKaiser's superior performance is mainly in prompt and appropriate diagnosis and treatmentThese findings challenge the widely held view that the NHS is efficient and that its inadequacies are mainly due to underinvestment PMID:11799029

    Introduction: Considering the high cost, volume, and patient safety issues associated with medical devices, monitoring of medical device performance is critical to ensure patient safety and quality of care. The purpose of this article is to describe the Kaiser Permanente (KP) implant registries and to highlight the benefits of these implant registries on patient safety, quality, cost effectiveness, and research. Methods: Eight KP implant registries leverage the integrated health care system's administrative databases and electronic health records system. Registry data collected undergo quality control and validation as well as statistical analysis. Results: Patient safety has been enhanced through identification of affected patients during major recalls, identification of risk factors associated with outcomes of interest, development of risk calculators, and surveillance programs for infections and adverse events. Effective quality improvement activities included medical center- and surgeon-specific profiles for use in benchmarking reports, and changes in practice related to registry information output. Among the cost-effectiveness strategies employed were collaborations with sourcing and contracting groups, and assistance in adherence to formulary device guidelines. Research studies using registry data included postoperative complications, resource utilization, infection risk factors, thromboembolic prophylaxis, effects of surgical delay on concurrent injuries, and sports injury patterns. Conclusions: The unique KP implant registries provide important information and affect several areas of our organization, including patient safety, quality improvement, cost-effectiveness, and research.

    This case study describes and analyzes a breach of the confidentiality and integrity of personally identified health information (e.g. appointment details, answers to patients' questions, medical advice) for over 800 Kaiser Permanente (KP) members through KP Online, a web-enabled health care portal. The authors obtained and analyzed multiple types of qualitative data about this incident including interviews with KP staff, incident reports, root cause analyses, and media reports. Reasons at multiple levels account for the breach, including the architecture of the information system, the motivations of individual staff members, and differences among the subcultures of individual groups within as well as technical and social relations across the Kaiser IT program. None of these reasons could be classified, strictly speaking, as "security violations." This case study, thus, suggests that, to protect sensitive patient information, health care organizations should build safe organizational contexts for complex health information systems in addition to complying with good information security practice and regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996.

    1996-11-01

    This report describes the results of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between Sandia National Laboratories and Kaiser Permanente Southern California to develop a prototype computer model of Kaiser Permanente`s health care delivery system. As a discrete event simulation, SimHCO models for each of 100,000 patients the progression of disease, individual resource usage, and patient choices in a competitive environment. SimHCO is implemented in the object-oriented programming language C++, stressing reusable knowledge and reusable software components. The versioned implementation of SimHCO showed that the object-oriented framework allows the program to grow in complexity in an incremental way. Furthermore, timing calculations showed that SimHCO runs in a reasonable time on typical workstations, and that a second phase model will scale proportionally and run within the system constraints of contemporary computer technology. This report is published as two documents: Model Overview and Domain Analysis. A separate Kaiser-proprietary report contains the Disease and Health Care Organization Selection Models.

    2014-01-01

    Context: Because of rising health care costs, wide variations in quality, and increased patient complexity, the US health care system is undergoing rapid changes that include payment reform and movement toward integrated delivery systems. Well-established integrated delivery systems, such as Kaiser Permanente (KP), should work to identify the specific system-level factors that result in superior patient outcomes in response to policymakers concerns. Comparative health systems research can provide insights into which particular aspects of the integrated delivery system result in improved care delivery. Objective: To provide a baseline understanding of comparative health systems research related to integrated delivery systems and KP. Design: Systematic literature review. Methods: We conducted a literature search on PubMed and the KP Publications Library. Studies that compared KP as a system or organization with other health care systems or across KP facilities internally were included. The literature search identified 1605 articles, of which 65 met the study inclusion criteria and were examined by 3 reviewers. Results: Most comparative health systems studies focused on intra-KP comparisons (n = 42). Fewer studies compared KP with other US (n = 15) or international (n = 12) health care systems. Several themes emerged from the literature as possible factors that may contribute to improved care delivery in integrated delivery systems. Conclusions: Of all studies published by or about KP, only a small proportion of articles (4%) was identified as being comparative health systems research. Additional empirical studies that compare the specific factors of the integrated delivery system model with other systems of care are needed to better understand the system-level factors that result in improved and/or diminished care delivery.

    2014-01-01

    Background/Aims There has been a shift in recent years from traditional HMO-type insurance products to high deductible or co-insurance plans. Kaiser Permanente Colorado (KPCO) has also added new service areas to the region that include Southern and Northern Colorado. In addition, the impending Affordable Care Act will be implemented in 2014 which may bring new and different members to KPCO. There is a need to describe socio-demographic and clinical characteristics by plan type in order to understand how members within these different plan types utilize KPCO resources and what data are available and identifiable within our source data systems. These answers will enable us to establish appropriate inclusion and exclusion criteria for future research studies. Methods All members with at least 1 day of membership from January, 2000 through July 2013 were identified. Membership within product lines and all associated utilization was based on calendar year. Patient characteristics, ambulatory visits, inpatient admissions, emergency department admissions, lab tests, tumors, pharmacy utilization and variations in therapy for certain diagnoses were obtained from the Virtual Data Warehouse (VDW). Socio-demographic characteristics, including gender, race, and age, were described by percentages. Clinical characteristics and variation in utilization were calculated on a per-person per-month measure and were compared for each region/insurance product/year combination. Results Demographics and utilization varied across all product lines and years. An increase in the number of different products offered was observed over time. Members in the HMO plan type were more likely to be younger, less educated and use more resources than members in other products. Some data were not easily identifiable in certain plan types. Conclusions These results indicate that demographic and clinical patterns do vary between plan types. These patterns need to be taken into account when creating cohorts in future research projects.

    Background/Aims Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) makes up approximately 25% of all breast cancer diagnoses and is considered to be a precursor to invasive cancer. Most DCIS diagnoses will not progress to invasive cancer, but reliable prognostic and predictive markers to guide treatment have not been established. Considerable debate exists about how to best treat DCIS, and many have expressed concern that DCIS is over-diagnosed and over-treated. This study examined patterns of DCIS incidence and treatment across six regions of Kaiser Permanente (KP). Methods Women aged ? 18 years of age diagnosed with DCIS between 2000 and 2010 were identified from tumor registries at each region using distributed code. Annual age-adjusted incidence rates of DCIS were estimated overall and by region and were standardized to the 2000 US population. The annual incidence of DCIS was also estimated for women aged ? 45 years and stratified on hormone replacement therapy status at DCIS diagnosis. Demographic characteristics and variation in first course of therapy were compared. Results Across six KP regions, overall age-adjusted incidence was 35.2/100,000 in 2000, increased to a high of 47.2/100,000 in 2007, and then decreased to 42.6/100,000 in 2010. Age-adjusted incidence rates for women on estrogen plus progestin hormone therapy prior to diagnosis were higher than for women on estrogen only or no hormone therapy. The most common first course therapy was breast conserving surgery plus radiation (38%); however, we observed different treatment patterns across regions. These patterns will be explored further in additional analyses that will include examining variation in treatment patterns by age, year of diagnosis, and histopathologic characteristics such as hormone receptor status and tumor grade. Conclusions Although age-adjusted incidence rates from six KP regions were consistent over time, we observed differences in treatment patterns. Differences in patient mix, tumor characteristics, patient, or physician preferences may have contributed to the variation in treatment patterns. These results may be of clinical use in determining factors associated with DCIS diagnosis and in understanding and evaluating regional treatment differences.

    The Nationwide Health Information Network allow for the secure exchange of Electronic Health Records over the Internet. The Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, and Kaiser Permanente, participated in an implementation of the NwHIN specifications in San Diego, California. This paper focuses primarily on patient involvement. Specifically, it describes how the shared patients were identified, were invited to participate and to provide consent for disclosing parts of their medical record, and were matched across organizations. A total 1,144 were identified as shared patients. Invitation letters containing consent forms were mailed and resulted in 42% participation. Invalid consent forms were a significant issue (25%). Initially, the identity matching algorithms yielded low success rate (5%). However, elimination of certain traits and abbreviations and probabilistic algorithms have significantly increased matching rate. Access to information from external sources better informs providers, improves decisions and efficiency, and helps meet the meaningful use criteria. PMID:22195064

    The safety and immunogenicity of the HbOC conjugate vaccine have been evaluated in a study population of 61,080 children in the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program of Northern California. Half of the population served as controls. The vaccine was given as part of a three-dose regimen in the first year of life with the first dose given between 6 weeks and 6 months of age, a minimum interval of 1 month between doses and with the third dose given by 1 year of age. The vaccine was highly immunogenic with 97% of infants developing 1 microgram/ml or more of anti-polyribosyl phosphate antibody as measured by Farr assay 1 month after completion of the three-dose series and with 71% maintaining this concentration until a booster dose was given at approximately 18 months of age. There were three cases of Haemophilus influenzae type b disease after the first dose of vaccine and two of these children died. However, there was no statistically significant difference between either the incidence of H. influenzae type b disease or the mortality rate in infants after one dose of HbOC vaccine when compared with H. influenzae type b disease incidence and mortality in unvaccinated children of the same age. The rate of sudden infant death syndrome following HbOC vaccine was lower than that observed within the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program as a whole or in the three counties in which sudden infant death syndrome surveillance was tabulated. Immediate local and systemic reactions were evaluated by telephone interviews of 6887 infants within 72 hours of vaccine.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:2062620

    The efficacy of the HbOC conjugate Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine was evaluated in a study population of 61,080 infants in the Northern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program. Between February, 1988, and June, 1990, the HbOC vaccine was given as part of a three-dose series at 2, 4, and 6 months of age to 20,800 infants. The study population included children with a well-care visit at a study center during the first 6 months of life. There were 25 cases of Haemophilus influenzae type b disease in the study population: 22 in unvaccinated children and 3 in children who received only one dose of HbOC vaccine. The efficacy of the full three-dose series was evaluated by several methods: a primary analysis comparing fully vaccinated children with unvaccinated children from 7 to 18 months of age; a stratified exact analysis adjusted for age and seasonality; and a case-control analysis which further adjusted for known risk factors. The efficacy of three doses of vaccine was 100% with the lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for the three analyses at 68, 71, and 64%, respectively. There were no cases of disease resulting from two doses of HbOC vaccine yielding an estimate of 100% efficacy (95% confidence interval, 47 to 100) for two doses of HbOC vaccine. However, for children who had received only one dose of HbOC vaccine, vaccine efficacy was estimated to be 26% and the possibility that one dose of HbOC vaccine had no efficacy could not be excluded.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:2062621

    Background and purpose Shoulder arthroplasty is being performed in the United States with increasing frequency. We describe the medium-term findings from a large integrated healthcare system shoulder arthroplasty registry. Patients and methods Shoulder arthroplasty cases registered between January 2005 and June 2013 were included for analysis. The registry included patient characteristics, surgical information, implant data, attrition, and patient outcomes such as surgical site infections, venous thromboembolism, and revision procedures. Results During the study period, 6,336 primary cases were registered. Median follow-up time for all primaries was 3.3 years; 461 cases were lost to follow-up by ending of health plan membership. Primary cases were predominantly female (56%) and white (81%), with an average age of 70 years. The most common reason for surgery was osteoarthritis in 60% of cases, followed by acute fracture (17%) and rotator cuff tear arthropathy (15%). In elective shoulder arthroplasty procedures, 200 all-cause revisions (4%) were reported, with glenoid wear being the most common reason. Interpretation Most arthroplasties were elective procedures: over half performed for osteoarthritis. Glenoid wear was the most common reason for revision of primary shoulder arthroplasty in elective cases. PMID:25727949

    Snowmelt is the primary source of surface water in the western United States and many other regions on Earth. Climate warming is forecast to impact the amount of precipitation that falls as snow and forms the mountain snowpack. Climate change induced alterations to snowpack translate to changes in snowpack magnitude, the timing of snowmelt, and changes in snowmelt rate. We ask how these perturbations may impact how snowmelt is partitioned between evapotranspiration (ET) and runoff (R) at Como Creek, a snowmelt dominated catchment on the Colorado Front Range. Como Creek is a 4.5 km2 headwater catchment spanning 2900-3560 m and is part of the Niwot Ridge Long Term Ecological Research Station and the Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory. We use observations of snow water equivalent (SWE), ET, and precipitation (P) from Niwot Ridge, CO, and discharge from Como Creek to explore relationships between snowpack dynamics and snowmelt partitioning. Measurements of ET are collected adjacent to Como Creek at the Niwot Ridge Ameriflux site and are assumed representative of the hydrologic fluxes in Como Creek. Analyses from point data show that years with higher peak SWE/P ratios partition proportionally more snowmelt to ET (pValue: 0.045). For example, water year (WY) 2005 has a peak SWE/P ratio of 0.49 and a growing season ET normalized by WY precipitation (ET/P) ratio of 0.48 while WY 2008 has a peak SWE/P ratio of 0.83 and an ET/P ratio of 0.82. Observations also show that years that experience later peak SWE (DOY=142) partition proportionally less snowmelt into ET (ET/P=0.42) compared to years that experience earlier peak SWE (DOY=86) and partition proportionally more snowmelt to ET (ET/P=0.56). Further point analyses also suggest that more rapid snowmelt results in proportionally less snowmelt partitioned to ET and more partitioned to runoff. To explore the underlying processes responsible for these relationships at the catchment scale we use the Regional Hydro-Ecologic Simulation System (RHESSys) to model how snowmelt is partitioned between ET and R under observed conditions and under a variety of climate change induced snowmelt timing, magnitude, and rate scenarios.

    1994-05-01

    Education, whether formal or non-formal, does not always adapt to dynamic cultural change or to shifting social needs, and is thus responsible for the crisis in education and for growing unmet demand. The industrial and technical revolutions have led to the spread of education, which is nonetheless marred by social injustice at national and international levels. A further contradiction is that the interests of the participants are insufficiently considered, and the question should be asked to what extent education violates respect for the rights of individuals and peoples. The educational crisis results also form the world crisis in ideologies, to which education frequently offers a reply which is regrettably academic. Research is restrained in the interests of reinforcing dependency, thus becoming a possible accomplice or prisoner of conservatism. Education is in part responsible for growing inequalities: therein resides the individual and collective challenge to fight against its use as an instrument of domination. The concept of the learner as educator overturns that of our societies in crisis. In order to realise it, a "planetary" approach is necessary, aware of the military and industrial origins of education. The transformation of drill into creativity is an arduous task but more than ever necessary.

    We study the interface evolution of a series of periodic Co/Mo2C multilayers as a function of the annealing temperature up to 600 C. Different complementary techniques are implemented to get information on the phenomenon taking place at the interfaces of the stack. The periodical structure of Co/Mo2C multilayer is proven by time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) depth profiles which demonstrate the formation of an oxide layer at both air/stack and stack/substrate interfaces. From Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra, we observed the intermixing phenomenon of Co and C atoms for the as-deposited sample, and then at annealing temperature above 300 C Co and C atoms separate from their mixed regions. Comparison of NMR results between Co/Mo2C and Co/C references confirms this phenomenon. This is in agreement with X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) measurements. Furthermore the calculation of the Co-C, Co-Mo and Mo-C mixing enthalpy using Miedema's model gives a proof of the demixing of Co and C atoms present within the stacks above 300 C. From the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis, we found the presence of some crystallites within the as-deposited sample as well as the mainly amorphous nature of all layers. This is confirmed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns which also demonstrate the growth of crystallites induced upon annealing.

  7. Hydrologic flowpaths and biogeochemical cycles in the subalpine Como Creek catchment, Colorado Front Range, USA

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Cowie, R. M.; Williams, M. W.; Zeliff, M. M.; Parman, J.

    2011-12-01

    An outstanding question for snowmelt-dominated watersheds of the western US are the responses of biogeochemical processes to two major drivers of environmental change: directional changes in climate and increasing dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) deposition in wetfall. In the Colorado Front Range, atmospheric deposition of DIN has increased several-fold in the last 25 years. In response, nitrate concentrations at the alpine Green Lakes 4 (GL4) catchment have increased from 1985 to 2009 by 0.27 ?eq L-1 yr-1. In contrast, we see no directional change in either nitrate concentrations or fluxes in the subalpine Como Creek catchment. We hypothesize that differences in surface/groundwater interactions result in the differing behavior of stream nitrate between the alpine and subalpine catchments that are receiving similar amounts of DIN from atmospheric deposition. For both basins we sampled precipitation, snowpack, snowmelt, surface water, and subsurface waters. All water samples are analyzed for geochemical, nutrient and isotopic (?18O, ?D) composition. Stream chemistry data from the last ten years at Como Creek show increases in nitrate concentration during baseflow conditions and then a sharp decline during snowmelt. In contrast, in the alpine basin there is sharp increase in surface water nitrate during snowmelt. Hydrograph separation at the alpine GL4 using end member mixing analysis (EMMA) shows that stream flow is a mixture of three components, groundwater, talus, and new snowmelt that each contribute to roughly a third of discharge, with talus flow supplying the majority of nitrate. In contrast, and somewhat surprisingly, EMMA shows that for the subalpine Como Creek basin, annual streamflow is a mixture of only two components, groundwater and new snowmelt. During snowmelt the groundwater and snow contributions are nearly equal and subsurface flows dominate the remainder of the year. Newly installed piezometers at Como Creek provide evidence that the basin is largely a losing reach during snowmelt, with water levels in the piezometers increasing 5-7 m. After peak snowmelt however, Como Creek becomes a gaining stream, with piezometer levels dropping. Thus, both EMMA and piezometers show that surface-groundwater interactions are tightly coupled during snowmelt, with snowmelt at Como first replenishing the subsurface water deficit and increasing groundwater levels before contributing to discharge. Thus, in contrast to the alpine GL4 basin, DIN released in snowmelt is assimilated belowground as snowmelt infiltrates the subsurface in the subalpine basin. Interestingly, at the subalpine Como Creek basin, isotopic and geochemical solute concentrations undergo shifts during periods of winter baseflow prior to snowmelt. In winter much of the stream is frozen and we hypothesize that cryo-concentration of solutes and fractionation of isotopes may influence the concentrations of winter stream samples.

Este artculo discute el proceso opuesto: el deshacerse de relaciones de parentesco, y el proceso social del abandono o alejamiento. Cuando se aleja a una persona de su familia o su comunidad, los que se quedan en ella llegan a entenderse como ciertos tipos de personas.

    Magnetically induced phase separation along the Curie temperature in the hexagonal-close-packed phase of a Co-Mo binary system has been predicted by thermodynamic calculations. Furthermore, the phase separation and magnetic properties of Co-Mo sputtered thin films have been investigated. Nanoscale compositional fluctuation caused by the magnetically induced phase separation has been confirmed in the films deposited on a heated substrate in the same manner as Co-Cr-based alloys. The magnetic anisotropy constant of the Co-Mo films is larger than that of Co-Cr films. From these results, it is concluded that the Co-Mo system is promising for use as a base alloy system for high density recording media.

    Lake Como (northern Italy) is the deepest Italian lake, reaching a depth of about 425 m. The lambda-shaped lake expands about 45 km in NE-SW direction. Southwards of the hydrologically closed western branch, two sediment cores of 70 m (S1) and 65 m length (S2) were taken in the year 2005 close to the cathedral of Como (Piazza Verdi). The drilling sites are located in the middle of the Southern Alps, some 300 m from the present-day lakeshore. The cores provide the first detailed Late Glacial to Holocene multi-proxy record for the Lake Como basin. Our research is aimed at investigating the environmental and geological evolution of the Insubria Region. The multi-proxy study of the stratigraphic sequences contain geophysical, geotechnical, sedimentological, paleobotanical, and radiocarbon analyses. They have been performed for core S1 and are still in progress on core S2. With this data the working group focuses on two main issues. The first topic is the reconstruction of the natural and anthropogenic processes controlling the ground subsidence in the Como urban area (e.g., Comerci et al., 2007) and another aim is to reconstruct vegetation and land-use dynamics. In particular, 150 samples of vegetal macroremains have been collected in the palustrine deposits along S1 core, down to 31,00 m. Below this depth (dated 14C 12,496 55 yr BP - 15,050 - 14,250 cal yr BP), the amount of plant macroremains in the sediment drops dramatically. The taxonomic determination was carried out on more than 800 macroremains. They are represented by fragments of wood, leaves, needles, seeds, fruits, mosses and tiny charcoals (Motella, 2009, unpublished PhD Thesis). Picea/Larix, Pinus sp., Juniperus with Betula, found in the deeper levels (30.80 - 30.00 m), are the first arboreal taxa that colonized the shores of Lake Como, and show that the reforestation began in this area about 16,000 years ago. During the early Holocene (25.10 m) Abies alba expanded and further upwards the sequence mixed deciduous forests became important. Preliminary results of palynological analyses for a section of the core S2 (35.04 - 18.12 m), show Late Glacial sediments in the depth of 35.04 - 31.16 m, due to vegetation changes related to natural climatic variability, with an alternation of communities typical of cold (Poaceae, Artemisia, Juniperus, Pinus and Betula) and temperate climates (e.g. Quercus). Later, during the Holocene, forests composed by mostly deciduous broadleaves and Abies alba expanded. During the mid and late Holocene human impact increased and modified vegetation. This is shown by the increase of herbs and heliofilous shrubs (26.51 m), typical of deforested spaces for fields and pastures. Human exploitation of wood is represented for example by the dramatic decline of Abies alba (24.97 m). Finally, the increase of Cerealia (19.39 m) is clearly related to intensified agricultural activities. The results of further paleobotanical and geophysical analyses which are in progress will be presented during the conference. Moreover, geochemical measurements (e.g., XRF) will be performed in future for core S2.

    El proceso de estigmatizacin asume una devaluacin de la persona debido a una caracterstica o marca que haya sido identificada socialmente y que permita que se le describa como diferente. Desde que se desat la epidemia del VIH/SIDA, vivir con la enfermedad ha sido sealado de manera social como una marca estigmatizante. Las manifestaciones de dicha estigmatizacin se han documentado entre profesionales de la salud. Este estigma puede afectar los servicios de salud que las personas que viven con VIH/SIDA reciben de estos profesionales. Los objetivos de esta investigacin fueron explorar: 1) la percepcin que tienen estudiantes y profesionales de la salud sobre su nivel de competencia para ofrecer servicios a personas que viven con VIH/SIDA, 2) las opiniones de stos sobre el tipo de adiestramiento profesional recibido y la necesidad del mismo, y 3) la manifestacin de actitudes estigmatizantes como indicadores de necesidad de adiestramiento profesional. La muestra total del estudio estuvo compuesta por 80 de diversas profesiones de la salud. Los resultados reflejan que algunos/as de los/as participantes han recibido formacin en VIH pero sta no ha sido suficiente para contrarrestar las nociones estigmatizantes. Discutimos las implicaciones de los resultados para investigaciones futuras y el desarrollo de intervenciones con vas de minimizar las nociones estigmatizantes en los escenarios de salud.

    An ion scattering spectrometry (ISS), which is known to provide a surface sensitivity limited to the first atomic monolayer of the surface catalysts while allowing depth profiling by gradual erosion of the successive layers, was used in this investigation. These measurements give striking evidence that the Co-Mo double layer is made of an oxidic molybdenum layer on top of an oxidic cobalt layer. The oxidic precursor sample investigated was prepared by successive deposition of Mo and Co on 160m/sup 2/g/sup -1/ ..gamma..-Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ support in powder form. The measurements were performed on a 3M Company model 535 BX instrument. The spectra were obtained with /sup 3/He/sup +/ at 2 keV with a beam current of 200 nA. The ISS results indicate the structure of the Co-Mo double layer. The work confirms the extreme surface selectivity of the method and shows the fine information which can be obtained from the interpretation of depth profiling measurements at the scale of a few surface monolayers.

    Background/Aims To learn about factors that influence decision to take up FIT. Methods Self-administered survey of 3 groups of White, Black, and Latino KPNC members aged 5275 who were mailed FIT kits in 2010, 2011, and 2012: Compliers (CMs) did FIT all 3 years; Converts (CVs) - did FIT in 2012 but not 20102011; Non-Compliers (NCs) - no FITs 201012. Results Preliminary based on 896 respondents (596 CMs, 300 CVs, and 114 NCs). All comparisons reported are statistically significant. 89% CMs, 80% CVs, and 58% NCs: think its very important to their KP medical team that they get CRC screening and 91% CMs, 75% CVs, and 51% NCs themselves think its very important. This was despite perceived risk of polyps (64%) or CRC (71%) being low. Most frequently indicated reasons for completing FIT (CM+CV) were wanting to make sure I am OK, FIT will help me protect my health, my doctor really wanted me to, FIT more convenient than other CRC screening methods, and spouse/partner wanted me to. Guilt about being sent so many kits was a factor for 43% of CVs. Blacks and Latinos were more likely than Whites to cite pressure from their kids. Almost no one indicated urging from a minister or employer. Many (32% CMs, 50% CVs) used own glove to get their sample. Among NCs, reasons for not doing the FIT were feeling uncomfortable/disgust about the test (e.g., reaching into toilet, handling stool, messiness), concern about mailing the sample, and low CRC risk. CRC fatalism was much lower down in the list, with no significant difference by race. 21% of NCs said nothing would make them do the FIT and 17% had no interest in CRC screening. Of those open to CRC screening, 25% want their PCP to tell them why they need it. Conclusions To improve participation in FIT and CRC screening, it may be helpful to involve churches; send multiple kits; have more PCP-patient discussion about CRC screening; and modify FIT kits (e.g., add gloves) to reduce anxiety about exposure to germs and mess.

    We occasionally include projects in our learner-centered introductory astronomy college course to enable non-science major students explore some astronomical concepts in more detail than otherwise. Such projects also highlight ongoing or upcoming astronomical events. We hope that students will feel more interested in astronomy through projects tied to astronomical events. In Spring 2012, we offered short essays focused on eclipses, transits and occultations to promote the rare transit of Venus that occurred on June 5th, 2012. We asked students to write two short essays from three that were offered. The essays contained descriptive and conceptual parts. They were meant to serve as teaching tools. 62% of 106 essays from 55 students earned A, B or C grades. 21% of 47 feedback survey respondents felt the essays increased their interest in astronomy. 49% of respondents felt that the essays were not educationally beneficial and should not be offered again. The most common written response to our survey indicated that students need more guidance and better preparation in writing successful essays. Since students found the conceptual parts of the essays difficult, in the future we will provide relevant activities prior to essay deadlines to help students create successful essays. Ocasionalmente, incluimos proyectos en nuestro curso de introduccin a la astronoma universitario centrado en el alumno para permitir que los estudiantes de carreras no cientficas exploren algunos conceptos astronmicos en ms detalle que lo habitual. Estos proyectos tambin ponen en relevancia eventos astronmicos en curso o futuros. Esperamos que los estudiantes se sientan ms interesados en la astronoma a travs de proyectos vinculados a eventos astronmicos. En el perodo de primavera de 2012 (EUA), propusimos breves ensayos centrados en los eclipses, trnsitos y ocultaciones para promover el raro trnsito de Venus que se produjo el 5 de junio de 2012. Le pedimos a los estudiantes que escribieran dos ensayos cortos de tres que se proponan. Los ensayos contenan partes descriptivas y conceptuales. Los mismos estaban destinados a servir como herramientas de enseanza. 62% de los 106 ensayos de 55 estudiantes obtuvo grados A, B o C. 21% de los 47 encuestados que respondieron al cuestionario posterior consider que los ensayos aumentaron su inters por la astronoma. 49% de los encuestados consider que los ensayos no eran educacionalmente tiles y que no deben ser propuestos de nuevo. Las respuestas escritas ms comunes a nuestra encuesta indicaran que los estudiantes necesitan ms orientacin y una mejor preparacin en la redaccin de ensayos exitosos. Dado que los estudiantes encontraron las piezas conceptuales de los ensayos difciles, en el futuro vamos a ofrecer actividades pertinentes antes de los plazos de redaccin para ayudar a los estudiantes a crear ensayos de mayor calidad. Ns ocasionalmente inclumos projetos em nosso curso universitrio introdutrio centrado no aluno para permitir aos estudantes que pertencem s carreiras no cientficas explorar alguns conceitos astronmicos em mais detalhes do que o normal. Tais projetos tambm enfatizam eventos astronmicos em curso ou futuros. Esperamos que os alunos se sintam mais interessados na astronomia atravs de projetos ligados a eventos astronmicos. No termo de Primavera de 2012 (EUA), propomos ensaios curtos focados em eclipses, trnsitos e ocultaes para promover o raro trnsito de Vnus que ocorreu no dia 5 de junho de 2012. Pedimos aos alunos que escrevessem dois ensaios curtos dentre trs que foram propostos. Os ensaios continham partes descritivas e conceituais. Eles foram feitos para servir como ferramentas de ensino. 62% de 106 ensaios de 55 alunos ganhou graus A, B ou C. 21% dos 47 entrevistados que responderam ao levantamento posterior sentiu que os ensaios aumentaram seu interesse na astronomia. 49% dos inquiridos consideraram que os ensaios no eram benficos para a educao e que no devem ser propostos novamente.

    Research on racial and ethnic disparities using health system databases can shed light on the usual health care and outcomes of large numbers of individuals so that health inequities can be better understood and addressed. Such research often suffers from limitations in race/ethnicity data quality. We examined the quality of race/ethnicity data in a large, diverse, integrated health system that repeatedly collects these data on utilization of services. We tested the accuracy of Bayesian Improved Surname Geocoding for imputation of race/ethnicity data. Administrative race/ethnicity data were accurate as judged by comparison with self-report in adults. The Bayesian Improved Surname Geocoding method produced imputation results far better than chance assignment for the four most common race/ethnicity groups in the health system: Whites, Hispanics, Blacks, and Asians. These results support renewed efforts to conduct studies of racial and ethnic disparities in large health systems. PMID:23169896

    Among Hispanic immigrants in the United States (US), learning English is considered necessary for economic and social achievement. As a consequence, there is a high demand for English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Despite the recognized benefits of ESL programs, both at the individual and social levels, more research is needed to identify education strategies that effectively promote all aspects of learning English as a second language. This article describes an ESL curriculum that incorporates a theory-based pedagogical approach specifically designed for immigrant Hispanic adults on the US-Mexico border region. The article also describes the implementation of the curriculum as well as the results of the evaluation, which was conducted using both quantitative and qualitative methods. Quantitative results indicate that the participants significantly improved their English proficiency (L2). Qualitative results suggest that participants were positively impacted by both the content and pedagogical approaches used by the curriculum. Their experience with the ESL class was positive in general. It can be concluded that the curriculum achieved its objective. This approach could serve as a model for second language teaching for adults. PMID:25284915

    This research aims at revising the thermal concepts and their relationship with the General Theory of Relativity (GRT) and how physical systems are affected when gravity is included in their description thermodynamics. The study found that in the case of light, the entropy in an extreme scenario is proportional to the area, not to the volume. This is due to a reduction of freedom degrees of the system, since the gravity imposes a constraint limiting the number of micro-states which are accessible to the system and this is consistent with the holographic principle.

    2003-11-01

    This thesis is concerned with the acoustic analysis of ecclesiastical spaces, and the subsequent implementation of acoustic design methodology in architectural renovations. One begins with an adequate architectural design of specific elements (shape, materials, and textures), with the intention of elimination of acoustic deficiencies that are common in such spaces. These are those deficiencies that impair good speech intelligibility and good musical audibility. The investigation is limited to churches in the province of Cordoba and to churches built after the reconquest of Spain (1236) and up until the 18th century. Selected churches are those that have undergone architectural renovations to adapt them to new uses or to make them more suitable for liturgical use. The thesis attempts to summarize the acoustic analyses and the acoustical solutions that have been implemented. The results are presented in a manner that should be useful for the adoption of a model for the functional renovation of ecclesiastical spaces. Such would allow those involved in architectural projects to specify the nature of the sound, even though somewhat intangible, within the ecclesiastical space.

    Resumen Durante cinco aos, un torbellino cotidiano de tiroteos, apualamientos y asaltos afect a la venta de drogas al aire libre en el vecindario puertorriqueo de Filadelfia, donde residamos y conducamos nuestro trabajo de campo. La industria de los narcticos ha venido a llenar el vaco que dej la desindustrializacin, convirtiendo al antiguo distrito fabril de la ciudad en un mercado de narcticos a cielo abierto que emplea en sus niveles ms bajos a jvenes puertorriqueos y cuyos clientes son principalmente heroinmanos blancos de bajos recursos. La capacidad para movilizar la furia asegura el xito en la economa de las drogas, garantiza proteccin en las crceles y le provee un ingreso mnimo a una poblacin de bajos recursos estigmatizada cuyos miembros frecuentemente reciben diagnsticos mdicos de discapacidad cognitiva. Muchos residentes buscan alianzas en redes sociales que los comprometen a participar en intercambios solidarios de violencia auxiliar. Una dinmica de acumulacin primitiva corporizada mata, hiere, discapacita o encarcela a la mayora de estos empleados de bajo nivel y a sus clientes. Los inflados mrgenes de ganancia alrededor de esta dinmica dependen de la violencia y la coercin. Un habitus furibundo impulsa a los vendedores callejeros a defender violentamente el micro monopolio de poder de sus jefes en la economa subterrnea como si fuese un asunto de diversin. Estos miembros de los niveles ms bajos de la industria del narcotrfico se apresuran a fraguar transacciones comerciales en ausencia de un marco legal en un ambiente de escasez que sin embargo se ve inundado por enormes flujos de dinero, drogas adictivas y armas automticas. Tras las drsticas reformas a los programas de seguridad social, la mano izquierda del Estado, en la forma de los servicios sociales, intenta prolongar los subsidios para individuos vulnerables diagnosticndolos como discapacitados cognitivos permanentes necesitados de fuerte medicacin farmacutica. La mejor manera de asegurar la continuidad de este frgil subsidio resulta ser los estallidos peridicos de violencia autoinfligida. Simultneamente, con la anuencia de la mano derecha del Estado, en las crceles violentas y hacinadas marcadas por formas hostiles de supervisin, la furia se convierte en una valiosa estrategia de proteccin fsica para los internos. En resumen, la violencia expresiva se convierte en una base prctica para el sostenimiento econmico y para forjar el sentido de dignidad entre hombres y mujeres. PMID:24532976

These include certain classes of determinantal and permanental point processes, as well as an isometry-invariant point process that arises as the zero set of a Gaussian random analytic function.

    2005-01-01

    Phase I of the voluntary chronic care improvement (CCI-I) under traditional fee-for-service Medicare initiative seeks to extend the benefits of disease management to an elderly population with comorbid chronic medical conditions. Active, sustained involvement of treating physicians, a historical deficit of disease management programs, is a CCI-I program goal. During the last decade, Kaiser Permanente, an integrated health care delivery system with more than 60 years of experience in managing the care of individuals and populations, has applied the chronic care model (CCM) to develop care management strategies for populations of patients with chronic medical conditions. Physician leadership and involvement have been key to successfully incorporating these practices into care. The scope of physician involvement in leading, developing, and delivering chronic illness care management at Kaiser Permanente is described as a basis for identifying opportunities to involve practicing physicians in the CCI-I.

    Particulate matter (PM) has been associated with adverse respiratory outcomes in numerous studies that utilized data from emergency room visits, hospital admissions, and mortality records. This study is unique in its investigation of associations of air pollution measures, including components of PM, with health outcomes in an ambulatory-care setting. Visit data were collected from Kaiser Permanente, a not-for-profit health maintenance organization in the metropolitan Atlanta, GA, area. Kaiser Permanente collaborated on the Aerosol Research Inhalation Epidemiological Study (ARIES), which provided detailed information on the characteristics of air pollutants. The Kaiser Permanente study was a time-series investigation of the possible associations between daily levels of suspended PM, inorganic gases, and polar volatile organic compounds and ambulatory care acute visit rates during the 25-month period from August 1, 1998, to August 31, 2000. For this interim analysis, the a priori 0-2 days lagged moving average, as well as the 3-5 days and 6-8 days lagged moving averages, of air quality measures were investigated. Single-pollutant Poisson general linear modeling was used to model daily visit counts for asthma and upper and lower respiratory infections (URI and LRI) by selected air quality metrics, controlling for temporal trends and meteorological variables. Most of the statistically significant positive associations were for the 3-5 days lagged air quality metrics with child asthma and LRI. PMID:15468673

    The first-line treatment of hyperuricemia, which causes gout, is allopurinol. The allopurinol response is highly variable, with many users failing to achieve target serum uric acid (SUA) levels. No genome-wide association study (GWAS) has examined the genetic factors affecting allopurinol effectiveness. Using 2,027 subjects in Kaiser Permanentes Genetic Epidemiology Research on Adult Health and Aging (GERA) Cohort, we conducted a GWAS of allopurinol-related SUA reduction, first in the largest ethnic group, non-Hispanic white (NHW) subjects, and then in a stratified transethnic meta-analysis. ABCG2, encoding the efflux pump BCRP, was associated with SUA reduction in NHW subjects (P = 2 10?8), and a missense allele (rs2231142) was associated with a reduced response (P = 3 10?7) in the meta-analysis. Isotopic uptake studies in cells demonstrated that BCRP transports allopurinol and genetic variants in ABCG2 affect this transport. Collectively, this first GWAS of allopurinol response demonstrates that ABCG2 is a key determinant of response to the drug. PMID:25676789

    2014-01-01

    Background/Aims The United State currently uses version nine (ICD-9) for diagnosis and procedure coding. Federal regulations require that the US adopt the next version (ICD-10) by 10/1/2014. The new version expands the number of diagnosis codes from about 13,000 to 68,000, providing more granularity to classify diseases. Challenges in moving to ICD-10 include: (a) the crosswalk between versions is a many-to-many match; (b) the relationship between the old and the new codes will sometimes be complex; and (c) it will encompass system-level changes such as expanded field sizes and support for alphanumeric characters. Our challenge is to implement the transition across three research centers at Kaiser Permanente Northwest, Southeast and Hawaii. Methods The three research centers need to account for the new ICD-10 code set and any new data structures introduced by either the EMR or Research Data Warehouse. A smooth transition between coding systems requires working with researchers across the three regions. This includes identifying corresponding ICD-10 codes that correctly identify the research cohort members and remediating the existing programing logic. Kaiser Permanentes Center for Health Research (CHR) has developed a detailed plan to accomplish these two goals. CHR staff are partnering with the Kaiser Health Plan ICD-10 implementation team in the development of our project plans. The standard source to be used for mapping at the three Kaiser Research centers is the General Equivalence Mappings based Crosswalk Query Tool, which Kaiser is implementing to support transition mapping needs. Results The CHR ICD-10 remediation team has completed the Framing and Planning phases including identifying programs/tables affected, sharing remediation solutions across the Kaiser regional research teams, and meeting with the Health Plan to coordinate efforts. We have developed a project remediation checklist and will report on the development of validation testing plans and the refinement of vanguard project code mappings. Conclusions In the transition to ICD-10, it is essential to have a well-formed plan and to identify and include all stakeholders in the process. It is also beneficial to share tools and ideas between research centers to improve the overall methods.

  6. Large-scale right-slip displacement on the East San Francisco Bay Region fault system, California: Implications for location of late Miocene to Pliocene Pacific plate boundary

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    McLaughlin, R.J.; Sliter, W.V.; Sorg, D.H.; Russell, P.C.; Sarna-Wojcicki, A. M.

    1996-01-01

    A belt of northwardly younging Neogene and Quaternary volcanic rocks and hydrothermal vein systems, together with a distinctive Cretaceous terrane of the Franciscan Complex (the Permanente terrane), exhibits about 160 to 170 km of cumulative dextral offset across faults of the East San Francisco Bay Region (ESFBR) fault system. The offset hydrothermal veins and volcanic rocks range in age from .01 Ma at the northwest end to about 17.6 Ma at the southeast end. In the fault block between the San Andreas and ESFBR fault systems, where volcanic rocks are scarce, hydrothermal vein system ages clearly indicate that the northward younging thermal overprint affected these rocks beginning about 18 Ma. The age progression of these volcanic rocks and hydrothermal vein systems is consistent with previously proposed models that relate northward propagation of the San Andreas transform to the opening of an asthenospheric window beneath the North American plate margin in the wake of subducting lithosphere. The similarity in the amount of offset of the Permanente terrane across the ESFBR fault system to that derived by restoring continuity in the northward younging age progression of volcanic rocks and hydrothermal veins suggests a model in which 80-110 km of offset are taken up 8 to 6 Ma on a fault aligned with the Bloomfield-Tolay-Franklin-Concord-Sunol-Calaveras faults. An additional 50-70 km of cumulative slip are taken up ??? 6 Ma by the Rogers Creek-Hayward and Concord-Franklin-Sunol-Calaveras faults. An alternative model in which the Permanente terrane is offset about 80 km by pre-Miocene faults does not adequately restore the distribution of 8-12 Ma volcanic rocks and hydrothermal veins to a single northwardly younging age trend. If 80-110 km of slip was taken up by the ESFBR fault system between 8 and 6 Ma, dextral slip rates were 40-55 mm/yr. Such high rates might occur if the ESFBR fault system rather than the San Andreas fault acted as the transform margin at this time. Major transpression across the boundary between the Pacific and North American plates at about 3 to 5 Ma would have resulted in the transfer of significant slip back to the San Francisco Peninsula segment of the San Andreas fault. Since that time, the ESFBR fault system has continued to slip at rates of 11-14 mm/yr. If this interpretation is valid, the ESFBR fault system was the Pacific-North American plate boundary between 8 and 6 Ma, and this boundary has migrated both eastward and westward with time, in response to changing plate margin geometry and plate motions.

    Many authorities have suggested that some variant of team training is likely to reduce human error in operating rooms, Emergency Departments, resuscitation teams and other settings within health carewhere human interaction is common, and where breakdowns in communication and teamwork can have critical consequences. The Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center Regional Simulation Center achieves this end. In particular, simulation prepares people for error-prone, high-risk, or unusual situations. Here, we will cite several scenarios and two actual protocols; five principles for managing critical events; results (2006 People Pulse favorability, 20072008 postsimulation survey favorability); Kaiser Permanente Northwest departments trained; strategic initiatives supported including service internalization; collaboration with local and regional community programs; and process transferability.

    Cancer patients tend to have a higher incidence of herpes zoster (HZ), but little is known about their risk of HZ complications. We conducted a retrospective study of 424 newly diagnosed hematologic (HM, n = 140) and solid tumor malignancy (STM, n = 284) patients who developed HZ between January 2001 and December 2006 to measure the frequency and identify risk factors of HZ complications. Patients were adult members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California. HZ diagnosis and complications were confirmed by medical chart review. HM patients with HZ tended to have more HZ complications than STM patients (34% vs 23%, p = 0.02), largely due to more frequent non-pain complications. On multivariate analysis, older age and being male were associated with a higher risk of HZ complications in HM patients; more advanced cancer stage was associated with HZ complications in STM patients. HZ complications are frequent and can present extra disease burden in cancer patients who develop HZ. PMID:24796470

    Research on adults has documented that use of medical services decreases after initiation of treatment for alcohol problems, but little is known about this relationship among adolescents. We studied utilization and costs of care following participation in the Adolescent Chemical Health Program (ACHP) of Kaiser Permanente, Northwest Region, in 1986-88. Three groups of adolescents (and their parents) were identified: adolescents who were assessed and initiated treatment in ACHP (n = 561), adolescents who were assessed and recommended for treatment but did not return for treatment (n = 278), and adolescents with no known substance use problems (n = 381). Medical records were reviewed for 1 year pre- and 1.5 years postassessment. After adjusting for preassessment medical visits, severity of alcohol and drug use, gender, and age, analyses suggested that substance user treatment was not associated with reduced use of medical services or costs by either adolescents or parents.

    Purpose: Spinal cord ependymomas are rare tumors, accounting for <2% of all primary central nervous system tumors. This study assessed the treatment outcomes for patients diagnosed with spinal cord ependymomas within the Southern California Kaiser Permanente system. Methods and Materials: We studied 23 patients treated with surgery with or without external beam radiotherapy (EBRT). The local and distant control rates and overall survival rates were determined. Results: The overall local control, overall recurrence, and 9-year overall survival rate was 96%, 17.4%, and 63.9%, respectively. Conclusions: The results of our study indicate that en bloc gross total resection should be the initial treatment, with radiotherapy reserved primarily for postoperative cases with unfavorable characteristics such as residual tumor, anaplastic histologic features, or piecemeal resection. Excellent local control and overall survival rates can be achieved using modern microsurgical techniques, with or without local radiotherapy.

  13. Lyapunov exponents for products of rectangular real, complex and quaternionic Ginibre matrices

    2015-04-01

    We study the joint density of eigenvalues for products of independent rectangular real, complex and quaternionic Ginibre matrices. In the limit where the number of matrices tends to infinity, it is shown that the joint probability density function for the eigenvalues forms a permanental point process for all three classes. The moduli of the eigenvalues become uncorrelated and log-normal distributed, while the distribution for the phases of the eigenvalues depends on whether real, complex or quaternionic Ginibre matrices are considered. In the derivation for a product of real matrices, we explicitly use the fact that all eigenvalues become real when the number of matrices tends to infinity. Finally, we compare our results with known results for the Lyapunov exponents as well as numerical simulations.

    We give a new probabilistic construction of solutions to real Monge-Amp\\`ere equations in R^n satisfying the second boundary value problem with respect to a given target convex body P) which fits naturally into the theory of optimal transport. More precisely, certain beta-deformed permanental (bosonic) N-particle point processes are introduced and their empirical measures are, in the large N-limit, shown to converge exponentially in probability to a deterministic measure whose potential satisfies the real Monge-Amp\\`ere equation in question. In particular, this allows us to represent the solution as a limit, as N tends to infinity of explicit integrals over the N-fold products of R^n and it also leads to explicit limit formulas for optimal transport maps to the convex body P. Connections to the study of K\\"ahler-Einstein metrics on complex algebraic varieties, and in particular toric ones, are briefly discussed.

    OBJECTIVES: To validate the ease by which a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) can be web-enabled using an XML-based semi-automated process. DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION: An XML DTD for Clinical Practice Guidelines and an MS Word authoring template were created in an earlier project. We took an existing guideline, Bedside Smoking Cessation Intervention, placed it into the MS Word template, converted it into XML, and then to HTML for deployment over the Kaiser Permanent intranet. CONCLUSIONS: We were able to use the MS Word authoring template and automatically generate both an XML representation of our guideline, and an HTML representation, which we have deployed on our intranet. The Bedside Smoking Cessation Intervention guideline was automatically merged into the online guidelines collection. Placing it on our intranet allowed for rapid and easy access by physicians and other health care providers throughout the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program. PMID:10566371

    Ten years ago, when I was president and chief executive officer of Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, if you had asked me about our commitment to environmental sustainability or about the hospital's carbon footprint, I would have given you a blank look. The issues were simply not on my radar screen. And that was true of most health care leaders. The good news? Environmental sustainability is becoming a health care priority, and exciting progress is occurring. In Greening Health Care: How Hospitals Can Heal the Planet, Kathy Gerwig eloquently relates how one leading large health care system, Kaiser Permanente, achieved remarkable results in responding to the environmental health challenge over the past several years.

    Physician use of secure e-mail with patients is anticipated to increase under Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements, but little is known about how physicians can successfully incorporate it into daily work. We interviewed 27 super user physicians at Kaiser Permanente and Group Health who were identified by leaders as being technologically, operationally, and clinically adept and as having high levels of secure e-mail use with patients. They highly valued the use of secure e-mail with patients, despite concerns about a lack of adequate time to respond, and provided tips for using it successfully. They identified benefits that included better care and improved relationships with their patients. PMID:24937149

    The Perinatal Patient Safety Project (PPSP) was created as a systemic strategy for creating high-reliability perinatal units by preventing identified causes of perinatal events in the clinical setting. With developmental funding from a Garfield grant, implementation of the PPSP has been completed at four pilot sites in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) Region. Its success has resulted in implementation at all perinatal units in the KPNC Region as well as being promoted by National Risk Management for nationwide implementation. PPSP emphasizes structured communication, multidisciplinary rounds, a definition of fetal well-being, and practicing for emergencies. Steps taken to create high reliability perinatal care include improved communication, patient safety focus, and satisfaction among perinatal patients, providers, and staff. PMID:21660157

    Purpose To discuss the current trend toward greater use of electronic health records and how these records could enhance public health surveillance of eye health and vision-related conditions. Methods We describe three currently available sources of electronic health data (Kaiser Permanente, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and how these sources can contribute to a comprehensive vision and eye health surveillance system. Results Each of the three sources of electronic health data can contribute meaningfully to a comprehensive vision and eye health surveillance system, but none currently provide all the information required. The use of electronic health records for vision and eye health surveillance has both advantages and disadvantages. Conclusions Electronic health records may provide additional information needed to create a comprehensive vision and eye health surveillance system. Recommendations for incorporating electronic health records into such a system are presented. PMID:23158225

    Abstract Objectives The purpose of this study was to evaluate an energy healing treatment for possible inclusion as a Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) Pain Clinic provided therapy, and to identify the appropriate number of treatment sessions for a Pain Clinic protocol, should the intervention prove successful. In addition, our intent was to document the full range of outcomes experienced by patients undergoing energy healing, including whole-person and transformative outcomes should they occur. Setting The setting for this study was Kaiser Permanente Northwest Pain Clinic. Participants Thirteen (13) patients with chronic headache who were members of the KPNW Health Plan were recruited through flyers or mailings. Methods Thirteen (13) participants received at least three energy healing sessions at approximately weekly intervals. Assessments were based on pre- and post-treatment qualitative interviews. Intervention The treatment consisted of three Healing Touch sessions provided by a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner. Treatments contained elements common to all sessions, and elements that were tailored to the individual subject. Results Twelve (12) of 13 participants experienced improvement in frequency, intensity, or duration of pain after three treatments. In addition, 11 of 13 participants experienced profound shifts in their view of themselves, their lives, and their potential for healing and transformation. These changes lasted from 24 hours to more than 6 months at follow-up. Conclusions Energy healing can be an important addition to pain management services. More in-depth qualitative research is needed to explore the diversity of outcomes facilitated by energy healing treatments. Furthermore, the development of new instrumentation is warranted to capture outcomes that reflect transformative change and changes at the level of the whole person. PMID:19678772

    Background The effect of interdisciplinary primary care teams on the use of health services by patients with multiple chronic conditions is uncertain. This study aimed to measure the effect of guided care teams on multimorbid older patients use of health services. Methods Eligible patients from 3 health care systems in the Baltimore, MarylandWashington, DC, area were cluster-randomized to receive guided care or usual care for 20 months between November 1, 2006, and June 30, 2008. Eight services of a guided care nurse working in partnership with patients primary care physicians were provided: comprehensive assessment, evidence-based care planning, monthly monitoring of symptoms and adherence, transitional care, coordination of health care professionals, support for self-management, support for family caregivers, and enhanced access to community services. Outcome measures were frequency of use of emergency departments, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, primary care physician services, and specialty physician services. Results The study included 850 older patients at high risk for using health care heavily in the future. The only statistically significant overall effect of guided care in the whole sample was a reduction in episodes of home health care (odds ratio, 0.70; 95% confidence interval, 0.530.93). In a preplanned analysis, guided care also reduced skilled nursing facility admissions (odds ratio, 0.53; 95% confidence interval,0.310.89) and days (0.48; 0.280.84) among Kaiser-Permanente patients. Conclusions Guided care reduces the use of home health care but has little effect on the use of other health services in the short run. Its positive effect on Kaiser-Permanente patients use of skilled nursing facilities and other health services is intriguing.

  3. Rapid spread of complex change: a case study in inpatient palliative care

    PubMed Central

    2009-01-01

    Background Based on positive findings from a randomized controlled trial, Kaiser Permanente's national executive leadership group set an expectation that all Kaiser Permanente and partner hospitals would implement a consultative model of interdisciplinary, inpatient-based palliative care (IPC). Within one year, the number of IPC consultations program-wide increased almost tenfold from baseline, and the number of teams nearly doubled. We report here results from a qualitative evaluation of the IPC initiative after a year of implementation; our purpose was to understand factors supporting or impeding the rapid and consistent spread of a complex program. Methods Quality improvement study using a case study design and qualitative analysis of in-depth semi-structured interviews with 36 national, regional, and local leaders. Results Compelling evidence of impacts on patient satisfaction and quality of care generated 'pull' among adopters, expressed as a remarkably high degree of conviction about the value of the model. Broad leadership agreement gave rise to sponsorship and support that permeated the organization. A robust social network promoted knowledge exchange and built on an existing network with a strong interest in palliative care. Resource constraints, pre-existing programs of a different model, and ambiguous accountability for implementation impeded spread. Conclusions A complex, hospital-based, interdisciplinary intervention in a large health care organization spread rapidly due to a synergy between organizational 'push' strategies and grassroots-level pull. The combination of push and pull may be especially important when the organizational context or the practice to be spread is complex. PMID:20040099

    Background: Recent studies that have assessed the comparative effectiveness between coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) that have included analyses of temporal trends in mortality have noted mixed results. Methods: We conducted an observational longitudinal cohort study of all adults with ESRD undergoing CABG or PCI within Kaiser Permanente Northern California. The primary predictor, index period of revascularization, was categorized into 3 periods: 19961999 (reference), 20002003, and 20042008, with the primary outcome being 3-year all-cause mortality. A multivariable Cox regression model with the assumption of independent censoring was used to determine the adjusted relative risk of the primary predictor. Results: Among 1015 ESRD patients, 3-year mortality showed no significant change in the 20002003 period but was lower during the 20042008 period with an adjusted hazard ratio of 0.66 (95% confidence interval: 0.490.88; trend test p = 0.01). No change in 30-day mortality was noted. Further adjustment for receipt of medications at baseline and after revascularization did not materially affect risk estimates. No significant interactions were observed between the type of revascularization (CABG or PCI) and the period of the index revascularization. Conclusions: Among a high-risk cohort of patients with ESRD and coronary artery disease within Kaiser Permanente Northern California who were referred for coronary revascularization by either CABG or PCI, the relative risk of mortality in the 20042008 period decreased by 34% compared with the 19961999 period, with the benefit primarily in the decrease in late mortality.

  5. Training providers: beyond the basics of electronic health records

    PubMed Central

    2013-01-01

    Background Training is a critical part of health information technology implementations, but little emphasis is placed on post-implementation training to support day-to-day activities. The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of post-implementation training on key electronic health record activities. Methods Based on feedback from providers and requests for technical support, we developed two classes designed to improve providers effectiveness with the electronic health record. Training took place at Kaiser Permanente, Mid-Atlantic States. The classes focused on managing patient-level information using problem lists and medication lists, as well as efficient documentation and chart review. Both classes used the blended learning method, integrating concrete scenarios, hands-on exercises and take-home materials to reinforce class concepts. To evaluate training effectiveness, we used a casecontrol study with a 1:4 match on pre-training performance. We measured the usage rate of two key electronic health record functions (problem list and medication list management) for six months before and after training. Change scores were compared using the Wilcoxon sign rank test. Results 36 participants and 144 non-participants were included in the training evaluation. Training participants were more likely to manage both medication lists and problem lists after training. Class material is now being incorporated into an enterprise-wide multi-modal training program available to all providers at Kaiser Permanente in the Mid-Atlantic States. Conclusions Ongoing information technology training is well-received by healthcare providers, who expressed a clear preference for additional training. Training improved use of two important electronic health record features that are included as part of the Meaningful Use criteria. PMID:24295150

    Background/Aims Pragmatic trials are fostering a paradigm shift to increasingly embed research into healthcare settings. Pragmatic trials test interventions in real world settings representative of those targeted for dissemination to promote robust, sustainable changes within the health care system. Kaiser Permanentes Center for Health Research, is conducting a pragmatic trial to test the effectiveness of teaching pain self-management skills using interdisciplinary teams within primary care in three Kaiser regions. Implementation requires a pragmatic approach to create a working relationship between health system leaders and the research team. We present lessons learned during our preparatory year in which we partnered with health systems to build an embedded research infrastructure for the study. Methods In accordance with a pragmatic approach, we used the Rapid Assessment Process (RAP) whereby the fieldwork team gathers and analyzes information quickly in the form of journal entries and detailed meeting minutes following stakeholder encounters and regular team meetings to document the emerging collective understanding of stakeholders expressed concerns and informational needs. This approach allows for iterative feedback from operational stakeholders and accommodates quick trial modifications. Results Using RAP to systematically identify lessons learned, several guiding principles surfaced for successfully embedding research into a healthcare system. The study foundation must come from a need identified by the health system, not the research team. Study outcomes must have obvious utility to operational leaders and practicing providers. Health plan administrators and clinicians have pre-existing ideas of research that necessitate ongoing education and dialogue to address concerns. Using a framework of change native to the health system promotes navigation of potentially disruptive change. Given rapid changes within health systems, the research team must be aware of competing contextual factors. Finally, a true health system/research partnership when staffing the intervention facilitates sustainability of intervention related services. Conclusions A pragmatic trial approach, although better suited for embedded research in the healthcare system, presents challenges not typically encountered in standard explanatory/efficacy trials. Lessons learned by this team that accommodate both healthcare operations and research can promote embedded research in other health settings.

  10. Sustainable health information exchanges: the role of institutional factors

    PubMed Central

    2013-01-01

    The transfer of patient information between the domains of community and hospital influences the quality, continuity and cost of health care. To supply the need for information flow between community and hospital, computerized Health Information Exchange (HIE) systems have evolved. This paper examines the institutional forces that shape HIE development in Israel and in the United States. In Israel, the vertically integrated Clalit health services developed a different solution for HIE than was developed in the non-vertically integrated Maccabi and Meuhedet health funds. In the United States the fragmented nature of providers outside of specific networks such as parts of the Kaiser Permanente and Veterans Administration system have dictated a very different evolution of information flow between community and hospital. More broadly, we consider how institutional factors shape (and will shape) the development of HIEs in different contexts. This paper applies institutional analysis to explain the emergence of different patterns of development of HIE systems in each of the environments. The institutional analysis in this paper can be used to anticipate the future success or failure of incentives to promote digital information sharing at transition of care. PMID:23692711

    I first met Lawrence Weed, MD, in 1972 when I was a third-year medical student at the University of Vermont. To this day I remember his passion for a disciplined approach to medical record documentation to optimize the care provided to each individual patient.Now, 35 years later, I was privileged to meet with Dr Weed at his home in Vermont. We discussed when he first was alerted to the nonscientific approach clinicians use to make decisions on patients. The rest of the interview time was spent with Dr Weed teaching me about the solution that he has spent the last 30 years designing and implementing.This interview is published to complement the editorial in the most recent issue of The Permanente Journal (Spring 2009;13[2]:85-7). We believe that in the era of health care reform and quality improvement initiatives, it is important that the medical community take a close look at Dr Weed's total approach decision-making information support defined in this interview.- Lee Jacobs, MD.

    Primary human papillomavirus (HPV) testing (without concurrent Pap tests) every 3 years is under consideration in the United States as an alternative to the two recommended cervical cancer screening strategies: primary Pap testing every 3 years, or concurrent Pap and HPV testing ("cotesting") every 5 years. Using logistic regression and Weibull survival models, we estimated and compared risks of cancer and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 or worse (CIN3+) for the three strategies among 1011092 women aged 30 to 64 years testing HPV-negative and/or Pap-negative in routine screening at Kaiser Permanente Northern California since 2003. All statistical tests were two sided. Three-year risks following an HPV-negative result were lower than 3-year risks following a Pap-negative result (CIN3+ = 0.069% vs 0.19%, P < .0001; Cancer = 0.011% vs 0.020%, P < .0001) and 5-year risks following an HPV-negative/Pap-negative cotest (CIN3+ = 0.069% vs 0.11%, P < .0001; Cancer = 0.011% vs 0.014%, P = .21). These findings suggest that primary HPV testing merits consideration as another alternative for cervical screening. PMID:25038467

    Medication adherence is a major determinant of antiretroviral (ARV) treatment success and a significant challenge for HIV-positive patients, yet a well-defined adherence threshold to maintain virologic suppression on current ARV regimens remains unclear. The present study evaluated 1915 Kaiser Permanente Southern California HIV-positive patients on one of three regimen types: (1) emtricitabine-tenofovir-efavirenz (FTC-TDF-EFV); (2) emtricitabine-tenofovir (FTC-TDF) and raltegravir (RAL); and (3) FTC-TDF and a boosted protease inhibitor, either darunavir (DRV) or atazanavir (ATV), to compare virologic failure rates between patients with varying levels of adherence to the regimens. Medication possession ratios (MPRs) were calculated to determine adherence, and HIV RNA PCR levels drawn 12-18 months after the initial pharmacy claim for the measured drug were used to determine virologic failure, which was defined as two consecutive HIV RNA PCR measurements ?200 copies/mL. Adherence was inversely related to virologic failure, with an 80-90% MPR threshold resulting in no more than 3.5% virologic failure rate. In comparison, ?90% MPR yielded no more that 1.1% virologic failure rate. Although the gold-standard adherence threshold for older ARV regimens has been 95%, an 80-90% MPR appears sufficient to maintain virologic suppression in patients treated with these three ARV regimen types.

    Objectives. To assess the relationship between infections and the risk of pediatric-onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Methods. We conducted a nested case-control study of 501 incident cases aged ?17 years and 9,442 controls who were members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California for at least one consecutive year between 1996 and 2006. IBD was confirmed and the incidence date was adjudicated by pediatric gastroenterologists. Hospitalized infections were identified from the principal diagnosis code of electronic inpatient records. Medications to treat infections were identified during the hospitalization. Conditional logistic regression was used to assess the associations between hospitalized infections, medications, and Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Results. In the year prior to diagnosis, both hospitalized infection of any system (OR 6.3; 95% CI 1.623.9) and hospitalized intestinal infection (OR 19.4; 95% CI 2.6143.2) were associated with CD. Hospitalized infections of any system were inversely associated with UC after excluding the year prior to diagnosis (OR 0.4; 95% CI 0.20.9). No UC case had a hospitalized gastrointestinal infection prior to diagnosis. Conclusion. Infections appear to play opposite roles prior to the diagnosis of CD and UC. Infections may be associated with an increased risk of CD and a decreased risk of UC.

    Twenty-four-hour dietary recalls provide high-quality intake data but have been prohibitively expensive for large epidemiologic studies. This study's goal was to assess whether the web-based Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour Recall (ASA24) performs similarly enough to the standard interviewer-administered, Automated Multiple-Pass Method (AMPM) 24-hour dietary recall to be considered a viable alternative. In 2010-2011, 1,081 adults from 3 integrated health systems in Detroit, Michigan; Marshfield, Wisconsin; and Kaiser-Permanente Northern California participated in a field trial. A quota design ensured a diverse sample by sex, age, and race/ethnicity. Each participant was asked to complete 2 recalls and was randomly assigned to 1 of 4 protocols differing by type of recall and administration order. For energy, the mean intakes were 2,425 versus 2,374 kcal for men and 1,876 versus 1,906 kcal for women by AMPM and ASA24, respectively. Of 20 nutrients/food groups analyzed and controlling for false discovery rate, 87% were judged equivalent at the 20% bound. ASA24 was preferred over AMPM by 70% of the respondents. Attrition was lower in the ASA24/AMPM study group than in the AMPM/ASA24 group, and it was lower in the ASA24/ASA24 group than in the AMPM/AMPM group. ASA24 offers the potential to collect high-quality dietary intake information at low cost with less attrition. PMID:25964261

    The ability to share nursing data across organizations and electronic health records is a key component of improving care coordination and quality outcomes. Currently, substantial organizational and technical barriers limit the ability to share and compare essential patient data that inform nursing care. Nursing leaders at Kaiser Permanente and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs collaborated on the development of an evidence-based information model driven by nursing practice to enable data capture, re-use, and sharing between organizations and disparate electronic health records. This article describes a framework with repeatable steps and processes to enable the semantic interoperability of relevant and contextual nursing data. Hospital-acquired pressure ulcer prevention was selected as the prototype nurse-sensitive quality measure to develop and test the model. In a Health 2.0 Developer Challenge program from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health, mobile applications implemented the model to help nurses assess the risk of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers and reduce their severity. The common information model can be applied to other nurse-sensitive measures to enable data standardization supporting patient transitions between care settings, quality reporting, and research.

    Aims It has long been hypothesized that natural selection would favour a reproductive strategy biased towards females under adverse circumstances in order to maximize the number of surviving grandchildren. An excess of daughters in women with Type 1 diabetes and a greater likelihood of gestational diabetes in women carrying male fetuses have also been reported. This study aims to compare the sex ratio across categories of maternal glycaemia. Methods Among 288 009 motherinfant pairs delivering at Kaiser Permanente Northern California in 19962008, sex ratios were calculated for the following categories: pregravid diabetes, gestational diabetes, mild pregnancy hyperglycaemia (defined as an abnormal screening but normal diagnostic test for gestational diabetes) and normoglycaemia. Odds ratios for delivering a male were estimated with logistic regression; normoglycaemic pregnancies comprised the reference. Results Women with pregravid diabetes delivered the fewest males (ratio male/female = 1.01), followed by women with normoglycaemic pregnancies and those with an abnormal screening only (both sex ratios = 1.05); women with gestational diabetes delivered the most males (sex ratio = 1.07). Odds ratio estimates suggested the same pattern, but none attained statistical significance. Conclusions The crude sex ratios in this cohort suggest a possible gradient by category of maternal glycaemia. Women with gestational diabetes, a condition characterized by excessive fuel substrates, appear to deliver more males. Women with pregravid diabetes delivered the fewest males, possibly reflecting the unfavourable state of chronic disease. PMID:22443388

    The first-line treatment of hyperuricemia, which causes gout, is allopurinol. The allopurinol response is highly variable, with many users failing to achieve target serum uric acid (SUA) levels. No genome-wide association study (GWAS) has examined the genetic factors affecting allopurinol effectiveness. Using 2,027 subjects in Kaiser Permanente's Genetic Epidemiology Research on Adult Health and Aging (GERA) Cohort, we conducted a GWAS of allopurinol-related SUA reduction, first in the largest ethnic group, non-Hispanic white (NHW) subjects, and then in a stratified transethnic meta-analysis. ABCG2, encoding the efflux pump BCRP, was associated with SUA reduction in NHW subjects (P = 2 10(-8) ), and a missense allele (rs2231142) was associated with a reduced response (P = 3 10(-7) ) in the meta-analysis. Isotopic uptake studies in cells demonstrated that BCRP transports allopurinol and genetic variants in ABCG2 affect this transport. Collectively, this first GWAS of allopurinol response demonstrates that ABCG2 is a key determinant of response to the drug. PMID:25676789

    Introduction: Hospital medicine is a young specialty that is still evolving. In its early years, research focused on clinical outcomes, efficiency, and cost effectiveness. As the specialty matures, increasing attention is being given to the patient and hospitalist experience with the hospitalist model of care. Methods: In 2008, we conducted a literature search to identify patients' and hospitalists' satisfaction concerns and potential strategies for their resolution. We used our findings to develop a semistructured interview guide as a basis for a wide-ranging discussion with Kaiser Permanente (KP) hospitalists and physician leaders and KP and non-KP subject-matter experts on their priorities, concerns, and successful practices. Results: Respondents identified sustainability and communications in coordinating care as their high-priority concerns with sustainability as the top priority. Within these broad concerns, they identified contributing factors and their interrelationships. Factors influencing sustainability of the hospitalist model include hospitalist scheduling, workload, comanagement responsibilities, and recruitment and retention. Regarding communications in coordinating care, respondents viewed themselves as being in the center of a web involving communication with patients, physicians in other services, nurses, and other hospitalists. Conclusion: Promising approaches have been developed to address sustainability concerns and for communicating with patients, physicians in other services, nurses, and other hospitalists. However, getting reliable feedback on patient satisfaction surveys for individual hospitalists is a continuing challenge. Despite the use of brochures and business cards to introduce themselves to patients and explain their role, there are difficulties in establishing a hospitalist-patient bond. PMID:22058670

    Starting from identical patients with type 2 diabetes, we compared the 20-year predictions of two computer simulation models, a 1998 version of the IMIB model and version 2.17 of the Global Diabetes Model (GDM). Primary measures of outcome were 20-year cumulative rates of: survival, first (incident) acute myocardial infarction (AMI), first stroke, proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), macro-albuminuria (gross proteinuria, or GPR), and amputation. Standardized test patients were newly diagnosed males aged 45 or 75, with high and low levels of glycated hemoglobin (HbA(1c)), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and serum lipids. Both models generated realistic results and appropriate responses to changes in risk factors. Compared with the GDM, the IMIB model predicted much higher rates of mortality and AMI, and fewer strokes. These differences can be explained by differences in model architecture (Markov vs. microsimulation), different evidence bases for cardiovascular prediction (Framingham Heart Study cohort vs. Kaiser Permanente patients), and isolated versus interdependent prediction of cardiovascular events. Compared with IMIB, GDM predicted much higher lifetime costs, because of lower mortality and the use of a different costing method. It is feasible to cross-validate and explicate dissimilar diabetes simulation models using standardized patients. The wide differences in the model results that we observed demonstrate the need for cross-validation. We propose to hold a second 'Mt Hood Challenge' in 2001 and invite all diabetes modelers to attend. PMID:11080563

    Purpose: To explore how nurses use an integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) in practice. Methods: A multi-site case study across two hospitals in Kaiser Permanente Northern California. Non-participant observation was used to explore nurses' use of the EHR, while semi-structured interviews with nurses and managers explored their perceptions of the EHR and how it affected their practice. Data were analyzed thematically using codes derived deductively from the literature and inductively from the data. Results: Key themes arising from the analysis suggest that the EHR changed various elements of the way nurses practiced. Introducing the EHR was thought to have improved communication, ease of access to information and the safety of medication administration processes. At an organizational level, there was variability in how the EHR was used to support care documentation and initiatives to improve the quality of care provided by nurses. Conclusion: The EHR was perceived to improve efficiency, safety and communication by the majority of nurses who were interviewed. However, it is likely that a number of other factors such as individual nurse's characteristics and organizational culture influence how an EHR can be used effectively to improve outcomes for patients.

As teorias existentes so de que estes objetos teriam se formado em uma regio distante do planeta e sua evoluo dinmica os teria levado a uma captura gravitacional pelo planeta.

    Even though marijuana smoke contains carcinogens and more tar than tobacco smoke and marijuana intoxication has been implicated as a risk factor for injuries, relatively little epidemiologic evidence has identified marijuana use as a risk factor for ill health. This study is the first to examine the health effects of smoking marijuana by comparing the medical experience of "daily" marijuana smokers who never smoked tobacco (n = 452) with a demographically similar group of nonsmokers of either substance (n = 450). Marijuana smoking status was determined during multiphasic health checkups at Kaiser Permanente medical centers between July 1979 and December 1985. Medical records were reviewed for as long as 2 years after the checkups. Frequent marijuana smokers had small increased risks of outpatient visits for respiratory illnesses (relative risk [RR] = 1.19; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.01, 1.41), injuries (RR = 1.32; CI = 1.10, 1.57), and other types of illnesses (RR = 1.09; CI = 1.02, 1.16) compared with nonsmokers; their risk of being admitted to a hospital was elevated but not statistically significant (RR = 1.51; CI = 0.93, 2.46). Analyses were adjusted for sex, age, race, education, marital status, and alcohol consumption. Daily marijuana smoking, even in the absence of tobacco, appeared to be associated with an elevated risk of health care use for various health problems. PMID:8337854

    Efforts to improve patient safety have largely focused on inpatient or emergency settings, but the importance of patient safety in ambulatory care is increasingly being recognized as a key component of overall health care quality. Care gaps in outpatient settings may include missed diagnoses, medication errors, or insufficient monitoring of patients with chronic conditions or on certain medications. Further, care gaps may occur across a wide range of clinical conditions. We report here an innovative approach to improve patient safety in ambulatory settings the Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC) Outpatient Safety Net Program which leverages electronic health information to efficiently identify and address a variety of potential care gaps across different clinical conditions. Between 2006 and 2012, the KPSC Outpatient Safety Net Program implemented 24 distinct electronic clinical surveillance programs, which routinely scan the electronic health record to identify patients with a particular condition or event. For example, electronic clinical surveillance may be used to scan for harmful medication interactions or potentially missed diagnoses (e.g., abnormal test results without evidence of subsequent care). Keys to the success of the program include strong leadership support, a proactive clinical culture, the blame-free nature of the program, and the availability of electronic health information. The Outpatient Safety Net Program framework may be adopted by other organizations, including those who have electronic health information but not an electronic health record. In the future, the creation of a forum to share electronic clinical surveillance programs across organizations may facilitate more rapid improvements in outpatient safety. PMID:25848588

    Das Aufgabenspektrum moderner Assistenzsyseme erstreckt sich von der Steigerung des Fahrkomforts bis hin zur bernahme aktiver Sicherheitsfunktionen. Selbst komplexe Systeme wie die adaptive Fahrgeschwindigkeitsregelung ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control, vgl. Kap. 32), die wie viele weitere Innovationen in der Fahrzeugindustrie einst der automobilen Oberklasse vorbehalten war, dringen derzeit ber die Mittelklasse in den Massenmarkt vor und beginnen, die ffentlichkeit fr die mit hoher Automatisierung einhergehenden Vernderungen und Herausforderungen zu sensibilisieren. Denn so beeindruckend die Leistungsfhigkeit moderner Fahrerassistenzsysteme auch ist, so verursacht sie doch ein Dilemma: Mit der bernahme von primren Fahraufgaben durch Fahrerassistenzsysteme werden vom Fahrer neue und erweiterte Bedienfhigkeiten erwartet. Zum einen muss er ein mentales Modell eines jeden vorhandenen Assistenzsystems mit dessen spezifscher Mensch-Maschine-Schnittstelle aufbauen und dessen funktionale Grenzen verinnerlichen. Zum anderen muss er, nachdem er einen Teil seiner Fahraufgabe an ein Assistenzsystem bertragen hat, die (teil-)automatisierte Funktion berwachen, die Handlungen des Systems antizipieren und eine permanente Bereitschaft zur Rckbernahme der durch die Assistenzfunktion ausgefhrten Fahraufgabe aufweisen. Die Rckbernahme geschieht entweder willentlich, wenn die Untersttzung nicht nach des Fahrers Vorstellung verluft, oder sie ist obligatorisch, wenn die Assistenzfunktion an ihre funktionalen Grenzen stt und explizit zur bernahme auffordert.

    Results of a recent national clinical trial show that maternal-to-fetal transfer of HIV can be decreased threefold by prenatal, intrapartum, and neonatal treatment. The question is whether to make prenatal HIV testing compulsory or to encourage voluntary testing. Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC), which has 2.5 million members, is part of a large health maintenance organization (HMO). In 1994, KPNC cared for 32,700 prenatal patients; 16,500 (50%) agreed to voluntary HIV testing. Compliance with testing ranged from 0% to 92% among the 31 KPNC locations. A study done by telephone survey identified three main factors favoring success of voluntary HIV screening: the ease and accessibility of HIV testing, a designated educator, and the presence of a registered nurse on the counseling team. In 1995, following feedback to the 31 facilities of the 1994 results, compliance rose to 19,800 of 31,300 prenatal patients (63%). KPNC, by encouraging counseled voluntary screening and following known positive cases, hopes to identify, track, and offer treatment options to all HIV-positive prenatal patients. PMID:9241111

    A multiethnic cohort of adult members of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program (55300 men and 65271 women) was followed for 15 years (1979-93) to assess the association between total cholesterol and risk of infections (other than respiratory and HIV) diagnosed in the in-patient setting. Using multivariate Cox regression, total cholesterol was inversely and significantly related to urinary tract, venereal, musculo-skeletal, and all infections among men; and to urinary tract, all genito-urinary, septicaemia or bacteraemia, miscellaneous viral site unspecified, and all infections among women. The reduction of risk of all infections associated with a 1 S.D. increase in total cholesterol was 8% in both men (95% CI, 4-12 %) and women (95% CI, 5-11%). For urinary tract infections among men, as for septicaemia or bacteraemia and nervous system infections among women, the risk relation was restricted to persons aged 55-89 years. Nervous system infections were positively related to total cholesterol among women aged 25-54. In both genders, the significant inverse association with all infections persisted after excluding the first 5 years of follow-up. Collectively, these data are suggestive of an inverse association, although not entirely consistent, between total cholesterol and incidence of infections either requiring hospitalization or acquired in the hospital. Further research is needed to elucidate whether these associations are biologically plausible or represent uncontrolled confounding by unmeasured risk factors. PMID:9825784

    The success of genome-wide association studies has paralleled the development of efficient genotyping technologies. We describe the development of a next-generation microarray based on the new highly-efficient Affymetrix Axiom genotyping technology that we are using to genotype individuals of European ancestry from the Kaiser Permanente Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health (RPGEH). The array contains 674,517 SNPs, and provides excellent genome-wide as well as gene-based and candidate-SNP coverage. Coverage was calculated using an approach based on imputation and cross validation. Preliminary results for the first 80,301 saliva-derived DNA samples from the RPGEH demonstrate very high quality genotypes, with sample success rates above 94% and over 98% of successful samples having SNP call rates exceeding 98%. At steady state, we have produced 462 million genotypes per week for each Axiom system. The new array provides a valuable addition to the repertoire of tools for large scale genome-wide association studies. PMID:21565264

  11. The human factor: the critical importance of effective teamwork and communication in providing safe care

    Effective communication and teamwork is essential for the delivery of high quality, safe patient care. Communication failures are an extremely common cause of inadvertent patient harm. The complexity of medical care, coupled with the inherent limitations of human performance, make it critically important that clinicians have standardised communication tools, create an environment in which individuals can speak up and express concerns, and share common "critical language" to alert team members to unsafe situations. All too frequently, effective communication is situation or personality dependent. Other high reliability domains, such as commercial aviation, have shown that the adoption of standardised tools and behaviours is a very effective strategy in enhancing teamwork and reducing risk. We describe our ongoing patient safety implementation using this approach within Kaiser Permanente, a non-profit American healthcare system providing care for 8.3 million patients. We describe specific clinical experience in the application of surgical briefings, properties of high reliability perinatal care, the value of critical event training and simulation, and benefits of a standardised communication process in the care of patients transferred from hospitals to skilled nursing facilities. Additionally, lessons learned as to effective techniques in achieving cultural change, evidence of improving the quality of the work environment, practice transfer strategies, critical success factors, and the evolving methods of demonstrating the benefit of such work are described.

    Many complications of sickle cell trait have been well-established, but associations with additional disease states remain controversial. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to examine the frequency of receiving a diagnosis of thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism (PE), ischemic stroke, renal disease (acute, chronic), coronary artery disease (CAD) and congestive heart failure (CHF) in patients with sickle cell trait. A total of 13,964 adult African Americans registered in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) health system (Oakland, CA, USA), were included based on laboratory and diagnostic code data for the years 1995-2008: 2642 with sickle cell trait, 11,183 with normal hemoglobin (Hb) and 139 with sickle cell disease. Disease outcomes were obtained from coded diagnoses. The adjusted relative risk of PE and chronic kidney disease in sickle cell trait patients compared to patients with normal Hb were 1.37 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1.07-1.75] and 1.13 (95% CI 1.03-1.23), respectively. There were no other significant differences in the outcomes for sickle cell trait patients compared to patients with normal Hb. PMID:24099594

    Motivated by a probabilistic approach to Kahler-Einstein metrics we consider a general non-equlibrium statistical mechanics model in Euclidean space consisting of the stochastic gradient flow of a given quasi-convex N particle interaction energy. We show that a deterministic macroscopic evolution equation emerges in the large N-limit of many particles. The proof uses the theory of weak gradient flows on the Wasserstein space and in particular De Georgi's notion of minimizing movements. Applied to the setting of permanental point processes at negative temperature the corresponding limiting evolution equation yields a new drift-diffusion equation, coupled to the Monge-Ampere operator, whose static solutions correspond to toric Kahler-Einstein metrics. This drift-diffusion equation is the gradient flow on the Wasserstein space of probability measures of the K-energy functional in Kahler geometry and it can be seen as a fully non-linear version of various extensively studied dissipative evolution equations and conservations laws, including the Keller-Segal equation and Burger's equation. We also obtain a real probabilistic analog of the complex geometric Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture in this setting. In another direction applications to singular pair interactions in 1D are given, leading to sharp convergence results. Complex geometric aspects of these results will be discussed elsewhere.

    Herbal and other dietary supplements are popular among patients. Whether and how to establish and manage an herbal formulary remains a challenge for conventional managed-care organizations. Pharmacists and clinicians depend on evidence-based guidelines to help determine which products (whether pharmaceutical or herbal) to make available to patients. Evidence from randomized controlled trials that supports the use of most herbal supplements is scarce, yet for some supplements, credible evidence supports the possibility of efficacy. Quality control remains of concern for the supplement industry and for patients and clinicians considering the use of supplements. Clinicians may improve care by both disseminating educational materials and making available to patients popular quality-controlled herbal supplements deemed safe and effective. Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) has adopted a comprehensive and systematic approach to managing and stocking herbal supplements that can serve as a model for other conventional and managed care organizations. KPNW's dedicated Natural Products Advisory Committee (NPAC) has made considerable progress toward developing a constructive response to KPNW patients' herbal supplement use. Making supplements available at pharmacies can improve clinical outcomes, patient convenience, and quality control. NPAC currently limits its reviews to randomized, controlled trials and data from meta-analyses and systematic reviews for single-ingredient supplements. As interest in this area maintains steady growth, NPAC will continue to study how best to meet patients' needs. PMID:21331210

    We investigated prospectively documented parental age and bipolar disorder (BD) in a multi-ethnic birth cohort. The study was based on a nested case-control design from the Child Health and Development Study (CHDS) birth cohort from 1959 to 1966. Potential cases with BD were ascertained by database linkages between CHDS, Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Plan (KPNC), and Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services, and mailed questionnaires. Consensus diagnoses with the SCID for DSM-IV-TR were made. The total number of BD cases was 94. Controls (N=746) were selected from the birth cohort and matched on date of birth, sex, and KPNC membership or residence in Alameda County. For every 10 year increment of paternal age, there was no association with BD, adjusting for maternal age (OR=1.04, 95% CI=0.75-1.44, p=0.83). There was no association between maternal age, modeled in 10 year increments, and risk of BD adjusting for paternal age and maternal race (OR=0.64, 95% CI=0.34-1.19, p=0.16) though there was a suggestion for a protective relationship between increasing maternal age and BD with psychotic features (OR=0.32, 95% CI=0.10-0.98, p=.046). These findings suggest that if advanced paternal age is a risk factor for BD, the strength of the relationship is small. PMID:23790979

    1993-08-01

    Currently, individuals concerned about the cost and quality of health care, and the necessity of major system reform, are grappling with the concepts of managed competition, managed cooperation, sponsors, and health insurance purchasing cooperatives. Managed competition, broadly defined, is a purchasing strategy designed to obtain maximum value for consumers and employers as they acquire health care. Managed competition occurs at the level of integrated financial and delivery plans, not at the individual provider level. The goal of managed competition is to divide the providers in each community into competing economic units to motivate them to develop efficient delivery systems (Enthoven, 1993). Efficient health care delivery systems have not resulted from the fee-for-service and remote third-party reimbursement practices that currently dominate the health care system. However, more efficient delivery systems have emerged from managed care. Some of the best known models of managed care that have demonstrated cost effectiveness include Kaiser Permanente, Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound, and Washington Group Health. The rapidly escalating consumption of US economic resources in the name of health care has led to the current pressure for health care reform. Although the public discussion about health care reform centers around the high cost of health care, we are, in truth, in the midst of both a crisis of medical care and an emergence of an era of health care for the nation's people.

    2012-01-01

    The cause of perinatal arterial ischemic stroke is unknown in most cases. We explored whether genetic polymorphisms modify the risk of perinatal arterial ischemic stroke. In a population-based case-control study of 19972002 births at Kaiser Permanente Northern California, we identified 13 white infants with perinatal arterial ischemic stroke. Controls included 86 randomly selected white infants. We genotyped polymorphisms in 9 genes involved in inflammation, thrombosis or lipid metabolism that have been previously linked with stroke, and compared genotype frequencies in case and control individuals. We tested the following polymorphisms: TNF-?-308, IL-6, lymphotoxin A, factor V Leiden, MTHFR 1298 and 667, prothrombin 20210, and apolipoprotein E ?2 and ?4 alleles. Patients with perinatal arterial ischemic stroke were more likely than controls to have at least one apolipoprotein E ?4 allele (54% vs. 25%, p=0.03). More patients with perinatal arterial ischemic stroke carried two ?4 alleles than did controls (15% vs. 2%, p=0.09), though this finding was not statistically significant. Proinflammatory and prothrombotic polymorphisms were not associated with perinatal arterial ischemic stroke in this small study. The apolipoprotein E polymorphism may confer genetic susceptibility for perinatal arterial ischemic stroke. Larger population-based studies are needed to confirm this finding. PMID:23290018

    Physicians could help a large number of patients quit smoking by taking time to advise them about quitting, helping them plan a date to quit, giving them self-help materials, following up, and referring some to smoking cessation programs. To determine the attitudes and practices of internists concerning smoking cessation and selected preventive medical practices, we surveyed a random sample of internists in private practice and in a large health maintenance organization (Kaiser-Permanente Medical Group) in the San Francisco Bay area. Overall, internists consider counseling about smoking to be at least as worthwhile as many other practices, such as screening for breast cancer, and more worthwhile than periodic physical examinations. Despite these beliefs, 57% to 65% of internists reported that they spend two minutes or less counseling smokers during new patient visits. Many internists never use recommended strategies for counseling about smoking: 33% to 44% never help patients plan dates to quit, 68% to 75% never make follow-up appointments with patients primarily about smoking, and 27% to 48% never give smokers self-help pamphlets about quitting. Although they believe that counseling about smoking is worthwhile, internists are not doing as much as they could to help their patients quit. PMID:2916878

    Dietz, William H

    2015-03-18

    The recognition of the obesity epidemic as a national problem began in 1999 with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) publication of a series of annual state-based maps that demonstrated the rapid changes in the prevalence of obesity. Increasing rates of obesity had been noted in earlier CDC studies, but the maps provided evidence of a rapid, nationwide increase. The urgent need to respond to the epidemic led to the identification of state targets and the first generation of interventions for obesity prevention and control. The CDC's role was to provide setting- and intervention-specific guidance on implementing these strategies, and to assess changes in targeted policies and behaviors. The CDC's efforts were augmented by Congressional funding for community initiatives to improve nutrition and increase physical activity. Complementary investments by Kaiser Permanente, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Institute of Medicine improved the evidence base and provided policy recommendations that reinforced the need for a multisectoral approach. Legislative, regulatory, and voluntary initiatives enacted by President Obama's administration translated many of the strategies into effective practice. Whether current efforts to address obesity can be sustained will depend on whether they can be translated into greater grass-roots engagement consistent with a social movement. PMID:25581155

  20. Clinicians use of automated reports of estimated glomerular filtration rate: A qualitative study

    2012-01-01

    Background There is a growing awareness in primary care of the importance of identifying patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) so that they can receive appropriate clinical care; one method that has been widely embraced is the use of automated reporting of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) by clinical laboratories. We undertook a qualitative study to examine how clinicians use eGFR in clinical decision making, patient communication issues, barriers to use of eGFR, and suggestions to improve the clinical usefulness of eGFR reports. Methods Our study used qualitative methods with structured interviews among primary care clinicians including both physicians and allied health providers, recruited from Kaiser Permanente Northwest, a non-profit health maintenance organization. Results We found that clinicians generally held favorable views toward eGFR reporting but did not use eGFR to replace serum creatinine in their clinical decision-making. Clinicians used eGFR as a tool to help identify CKD, educate patients about their kidney function and make treatment decisions. Barriers noted by several clinicians included a desire for greater education regarding care for patients with CKD and tools to facilitate discussion of eGFR findings with patients. Conclusions The manner in which clinicians use eGFRs appears to be more complex than previously understood, and our study illustrates some of the efforts that might be usefully undertaken (e.g. specific clinician education) when encouraging further promulgation of eGFR reporting and usage.
