Millennials & healthcare management
24 Jun

For millennials, this time in our lives seems like it’s moving at a hurtling pace. Most of us are right out of college, trying to land that dream job, looking into buying homes, and just all round trying to get our lives in order. These factors could lead other generations to think that healthcare management is the last thing on a millennials mind, but that concept is far from the truth. Millennials are taking care of themselves just as much as other generations, just in a few different ways.

Who could forget the big win on Jeopardy! in 2011? IBM has announced it will partner with Apple and medical device companies, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic, to develop a health platform for its Watson supercomputer.  

Johnson & Johnson’s partnership is intended to be used in healthcare for patients who have undergone hip and knee replacements.

I opened the May 13th edition of the Tampa Tribune and read an opinion article written by Krista Kellogg and Ron Grau; “Keep step therapy in Florida’s health care conversion”.  First thing that popped in my head was pedometer, which is actually incorrect.  Step therapy has nothing to do with the steps you take during a day but everything to do with how your prescriptions are managed by your insurance company.

Celebrate National Nurses Week!
04 May

You don’t have to be a nurse to know that it is a hard career. Just observing nursing professionals in action, you know that they spend an average of 12 hours on their feet daily, deal with a range of personalities and emotions of patients and their families, and at times make life-and-death decisions for patients.

Are you sleepy too?
27 Apr

The sun begins to rise in all of its majestic wonder, birds are signing sweet songs outside your bedroom window, and it’s beginning to look like a beautiful new day. You, on the other hand, feel like you have just been hit by a truck. Your hair is a mess, and you can barely get yourself into the kitchen to pour yourself some cereal. You stagger through your house to prepare for your workday, and once you get to work you can’t even remember if you brushed your teeth.

The new care team: Physician assistants and nurse practitioners
08 Apr

On your next doctor visit you may see less of your physician and more of other familiar faces. Over the next decade, health officials are projecting a shortage of health care professionals, specifically physicians, brought about by health reform and an aging baby boomer generation. A 2015 study conducted for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) estimates that the U.S. will be short some 46,000 to 90,000 physicians by 2025. With the looming physician shortage, there is growing demand for physician assistants and nurse practitioners to fill the void.
