She argues that cloning is, "an unprecedented advance in medical research" and should be used to its full potential. The author uses logos and ethos combined with a distinct lack of pathos to make the argument that human cloning should be researched and used as an aid for medical issues. The article is roughly directed at the scientific community, but is mostly written in hopes of persuading those of the general public that have an interest in the subject to look at cloning and stem cell research more logically. Eddon begins the article by explaining the benefits of investing in cloning research, which include more effective treatments for medical issues and a variety of options to reproductive problems. The article immediately begins its appeal to logic.
Gilead’s comparative study with Combivir, which currently holds the highest market share in Europe would be indicative of its superiority. Physicians would also be interested in clinical data indicative of better efficacy. Truvada not only demonstrated greater virological response but a better tolerance for the drug combination and better compliance to the treatment regimen. These are properties physicians would consider carefully given the chances of the virus developing resistance to a drug due to non-compliance by the patient. High level of adherence to the treatment regimen is a major requirement for the disease The FDA approval and uptake in the US market could also be used to promote Truvada.
“Electronic health records facilitate greater access to the information providers need to diagnose health problems earlier and improve the health outcomes of their patients. Electronic health records also allow information to be shared more easily among doctors' offices, hospitals, and across health systems, leading to better coordination of care.” (Meaningful Use, 2013) The last benefit of EMR, as outlined by Menaingful Use, is patient empowerment. This is perhaps the most revolutionary part of the law. Today’s health care landscape does not give a lot of power to the patient but this is going to change sooner than later. “Electronic health records will help empower patients to take
My theory also is that eventually people will start bidding on artificial organs and the richer people will have say over a family that doesn't have a lot of money. If doctors wanted to replace original organs with artificial ones, it would take a lot of perfecting and obligating a clean bill of health for the patient. Who, if anyone, should be a prime candidate for these types of artificial/synthetic replacements? Do you feel that anyone should have access to them? Even a life-long smoker or alcoholic who knowingly subjected themselves to harmful substances?
The case was in a period of police transition and was a real test for them. In my opinion the investigation was a success due to a lot of successful methods. For example the use of forensics showcases the improvements made and just how far they had come. This was effective in many ways as it led to the identification to Cora’s body however there was still a bit of estimations which shows room for improvement in accuracy. I personally think all of the use of technology was effective because they had so many resources and made some real breakthroughs in investigative technology.
These challenges can consist of race, ethnicity, and the types of languages spoken by patients (AHRQ, 2010). Having a standardized way of collecting this data will improve operation efficiency immensely, especially when designing and building an efficient database. In every field of business, you will be able to find databases being utilized; healthcare is not singled out, in this case. Even though the technology behind databases are improving and evolving, the health care relational database system infrastructure is on the forefront of technological advancements. Collecting data from patients has always been the prime way of getting information into the databases, but in what ways have we tried to get the information from them?
I believe that this is a great way to help reduce healthcare cost, however, I do believe that there should be verbiage that allowed for higher pay outs dependent on the situation. Should a patient be able to sue for millions of dollars for a mistake that did not lead to a significant event or death? I do not believe that this should be allowed and should be capped. If the negligence leads to death or significant injury (i.e. laterality issue much like amputation of the incorrect limb); I believe that this does deserve to be compensated accordingly and not be capped.
Based on the information presented in this paper, EHRs can be beneficial to the healthcare industry by saving money and reducing errors but also can benefit the patient by having the doctors and hospitals they go to be more efficient, convenient, and allows the caregiver to spend more time with the patient instead of updating paperwork. With the ease of new software in development, healthcare facilities will train properly and quickly so they are not losing focus on the patient. Cost may be a major factor now why the healthcare industry has not already embraced this technology but that will soon change with the new incentive programs coming in the near future. By 2014, these incentives will be in place and the healthcare industry will grow in the 21st
The Obama Care act is an act to beneficiate doctors and insurance companies by rewarding them. For example in an article named, “Top 10 Pros and Cons”, one of the pros says the following, “… Medicare will reward quality not quantity; thus, bonus payments will be given to those doctors and hospitals that provide good quality care” (2).This is saying that this act is opening the door to hospitals and doctors “to take care of their patients well” in order to earn the incentives from the insurance companies. Insurance companies also benefit because it means more advertisement because of the fact that they can blind people by promoting the best care of their doctors. This act can also deprive people from the doctors or insurance they are used to because they may not meet the criteria that the act wants. An example is from the “Top 10 Pros and Cons”, which says, “According to the experts,
There are many people that will be involved in this decision and it is not a decision that is to be taken lightly. There is all aspect of things that an organization can benefit from when implementing an information system. The biggest thing of all that an organization needs to look at when looking to implementing an information system is will it allows us to grow, will it allows to be more efficient. All of these things have to be looked and thought through carefully. The goal is that the new information system implementation will allow the company to provide better care for the patients, as well as for the company.
