  • Small is Beautiful, but Universals are Equitable
    • Abstract: To see a World in a Grain of SandAnd a Heaven in a Wild FlowerHold Infinity in the palm of your handAnd Eternity in an hourPractitioners of the healing arts work in the medium of individuals—one person at a time. A physician, a social worker, a teacher, a nurse, a nutritionist, a therapist works with individuals to transform disease into health, chaos into order, rot into verdant growth, and helps maintain the individual in the state of well-being s/he enjoys.Policymakers, in contrast, work for the greatest good for the greatest number of individuals, an objective most contemporaries would endorse but the details of which come in for heated debate.In between lie particular populations, whose members share ...

  • A Dedicated Hostel-based Liver Service for Vulnerable/Homeless Adults:
           Response to: Needs Assessment of HCV-Infected Individuals Experiencing
           Homelessness and Implications
    • Abstract: To the Editor,This is in reference to the excellent manuscript by Beiser et al. titled, "Needs Assessment of HCV-Infected Individuals Experiencing Homelessness and Implications."1The study is perhaps one of the very few to address, from a qualitative aspect, the challenging issue of HCV in homeless populations. The authors quite rightly state that the uptake and treatment of HCV in marginalised populations remain exceptionally low despite the introduction of integrated models in primary care. Not surprisingly, this issue has been highlighted as one of the major hurdles in the global strategy towards elimination of HCV.2It is interesting that more than two thirds (72.9%) of the homeless population included in this ...

  • Regional Variations in the Interpretation of the End-Stage Renal Disease
           
    • Abstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major source of premature morbidity and mortality affecting more than 10% of adults.1 In the U.S. over 110,000 people each year develop the advanced stage of CKD or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring renal replacement therapy with either dialysis or renal transplantation.2 End-stage renal disease also levies a substantial financial burden as ESRD patients in the U.S. consume nearly 7% of Medicare costs while accounting for less than 1% of the total Medicare population, making their care a national priority.3 Racial/ethnic minorities in the United States are 1.5–3 times more likely than non Hispanic White patients to develop ESRD, but despite suffering from excess rates of ...

  • Evaluating the Impact of the Affordable Care Act on HIV Care, Outcomes,
           Prevention, and Disparities: A Critical Research Agenda
    • Abstract: There are an estimated 1.2 million people living with HIV (PLWH) in the United States (U.S.),1 and about 50,000 newly infected each year.2 In the U.S., only an estimated 86% of PLWH are diagnosed, 40% are engaged in medical care, 37% are prescribed antiretroviral therapy (ART), and still fewer (30%) are virally suppressed, the ultimate goal of HIV treatment.1 These sequential steps from HIV diagnosis to viral suppression are collectively referred to as the HIV care continuum, and are considered a useful metric for the status of HIV care and outcomes.3HIV affects the U.S. population disparately. People of color account for disproportionately high percentages of new infections, but are underrepresented at every step ... Read More

  • Providing Specialty Care for the Poor and Underserved at Student-Run Free
           Clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area
    • Abstract: Student-run free clinics (SRFCs) have served as an integral component of the national health care structure by filling in many of the gaps that exist in the safety net.1–4 Not only do SRFCs benefit uninsured and underserved patients, they also foster education and community service among medical students.5 Although the exact number of free clinics in the United States is unknown, a recent study estimates that approximately 49 medical schools have at least one student-run clinic.6 They operate with a median operating budget of $12,000 and have more than 36,000 patient visits annually.6The vast majority of SRFCs across the country serve to provide primary care or preventive medical services.3,6 However, many of the ...

    • Abstract: Generally public health services aim to provide accessible, high quality health care services that are free of charge or affordable, and responsive to the needs of individuals and communities.1,2 Health care access and use are linked and may be defined across five components: (1) availability of health care resources; (2) accessibility, including physical and informational accessibility; (3) accommodation characteristics (e.g., working hours, waiting time); (4) affordability, which corresponds to economical ease of use; and (5) acceptability, which describes how cognizant the health facilities are of ethical, cultural, and individual beliefs.3Most health care systems endorse equity, efficiency, and acceptability ...

  • Short Sleep Duration is Associated with Obesity in Hispanic Manufacturing
           Workers
    • Abstract: Obesity is a major public health problem with substantial costs to individuals, society, and the healthcare system. The annual economic cost of adult obesity is estimated to be over $300 billion at the national level.1 Obese individuals accrue medical costs that are 30% higher than normal weight individuals,2 with medical costs rising exponentially as individuals become increasingly obese.1 The relationship between obesity and poor health outcomes is now well established in the scientific literature. In particular, obesity is considered an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and also associated with CVD risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes.3,4 Compared with nationally representative ...

  • Access to Health Care among Mexican Migrants and Immigrants: A Comparison
           across Migration Phases
    • Abstract: Migration is a social process with different phases: pre-departure, transit, destination, interception/deportation, and return.1 During these phases, im/migrants find themselves in different contexts, which can present special health risks, changes in health rights, and challenges in accessing health care services. In the U.S. there are approximately 12 million Mexican-born im/migrants.2 Among them, about one in three engages in circular migration, often sojourning in both places due to voluntary decisions or involuntary circumstances, such as deportation.3, 4 Compared with their peers who settle permanently in the U.S., circular im/migrants are more likely to be male and poorly educated, to earn low wages, and ...

  • Incidence of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer in the Uninsured
    • Abstract: Non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC), including squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma, are common reasons for patients to visit primary care physicians.1 While mortality rates in NMSC are low, skin cancers can be locally invasive and disfiguring and affect a large number of people.2 Moreover, we have seen a steady increase in the incidence of NMSC from 2.1 million people in 2006 to 3.4 million in 2012 in the United States.3,4 Incidence rates of NMSC are higher with increasing age. One study reported an incidence of 1.27 per 100,000 in age 18–24, 34.55 per 100,000 in ages 35–44, and 165.62 per 100,000 in ages 55–64.5 Incidence rates are also higher than average in some underserved populations.6,7 Wilde et al. ...

  • Real-world Outcomes of Hepatitis C Treatment during the Interferon-free

  • Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome in East Tennessee: Characteristics and Risk
           Factors among Mothers and Infants in One Area of Appalachia
    • Abstract: Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a withdrawal syndrome that occurs in infants exposed to opioids in utero.1 The increasing number of infants with NAS is an epidemic within an epidemic: while emergency department visits for nonprescription use of opioids more than doubled between 2004 and 2011,2 and deaths attributable to opioids have more than tripled between 1999 and 2013,3 the national rate of NAS has increased almost five-fold between 2000 and 2012 (from 1.20 to 5.8 per 1,000 live births).4 Concomitant with the rise in NAS has been a fourfold rise in admissions to neonatal intensive care units for NAS infants between 2000 and 2012,5 with hospital-related charges doubling between 2009 and 2012 to reach 1.5 ...

  • Maternal Health Care Use by Pregnant Women Living with HIV: Factors

    • Abstract: The Caribbean ranks second in regional rates of HIV, and Haiti has the heaviest burden in the Caribbean with a 1.9% adult prevalence.1 Haiti is home to 120,000 HIV-positive children, and a recent study found upwards of 12% of pregnant women seeking maternal health care services were HIV-positive.1-2 The rate of HIV in pregnant women is particularly alarming, since without intervention, mother-to-child transmission ranges from 15–45%;3 however, with early and recurrent HIV testing and introduction of antiretroviral therapy, mother-to-child transmission rates drop to below 5%.3 Thus, the aim of this study is to compare maternal health care use by pregnant, HIV-positive women with that of their HIV-negative peers. ...

This change affects both population growth and its age composition. For the last two decades increasing aging of the population with women predominating has been observed. This phenomenon, known as the feminization of aging is universally observed because women are likely to outlive men.1,2 Gradual deterioration of physical and mental health conditions that accompany the process of aging coupled with deterioration of oral health status is a recurrent and important subject in the analysis of aging.More than half of the elderly population in Mexico receives professional dental attention once per ...

  • Routine Screening for Pregnancy Intention to Address Unmet Reproductive
           Health Needs in Two Urban Federally Qualified Health Centers
    • Abstract: Unplanned pregnancy continues to be a major public health problem in the United States. Ninety-five percent of unintended pregnancies are due to inconsistent or non-use of contraception.1 Despite similar rates of sexual activity and pregnancy intention across all income levels, rates of unplanned pregnancy are higher in low-income women largely due to lower rates of contraception use.2 One of the primary contributors to this discrepancy is lack of access to health care services, including reproductive health care for lower-income women. While Title X has provided funding to improve access to family planning services since 1970, total funding has increased minimally for the past decade, and its reach into ... Read More

  • Enhancing Administrative Data to Predict Emergency Department Utilization:
           The Role of Neighborhood Sociodemographics

These types of ED visits are sometimes referred to as primary-care sensitive (PCS),6,8,9 a term that highlights the association with primary care without saying that all such use is inappropriate.Whether because of reduced access ...

  • Dialysis Hospitalization Inequities by Hispanic Ethnicity and Immigration
           Status
    • Abstract: Since 1972 Medicare coverage extends to most patients with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), a condition in which a patient's kidneys permanently fail to function. ESRD coverage is the first disease-specific entitlement program in the U.S. and was the product of effective congressional lobbying by ESRD patients and nephrologists in the 1960s and 1970s.1,2 The extension of Medicare to ESRD patients allows coverage for three times weekly chronic outpatient dialysis (the recommended course of treatment for ESRD3) and kidney transplants among patients who may otherwise be un-or underinsured.4Medicare does not, however, offer coverage to all patients with ESRD in the U.S. Many new immigrants (documented or undocumented) ...

  • Access to Digital Communication Technology and Perceptions of Telemedicine
           for Patient Education among American Indian Patients with Diabetes
    • Abstract: Telemedicine and mobile health strategies are increasingly common tools used to improve access, facilitate patient education, and promote engagement among medically underserved patients with chronic conditions. The success of these strategies among underserved patients depends in part on their access to required technology. Therefore, it is important to evaluate access to digital technology for telemedicine use among medically underserved patients managing a chronic illness.As the prevalence of chronic conditions grows,1 factors beyond access—such as patient education—must be considered since such factors may be central to successful long-term management of chronic conditions. Patient education is "any set of ... Read More

    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to describe barriers to health care facing Laotian Americans in Middle Tennessee, and to suggest policies that might address these barriers for Laotian Americans in the United States (U.S.). Disparities among racial and ethnic groups in access to health care are well documented.1,2,3 Racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S. continue to receive lower quality care than White Americans.1 Besides influencing the quality of care, these barriers create an economic burden. It is estimated that during the period 2003–2006, eliminating health disparities for Asian Americans would have eliminated $11.4 billion in additional direct medical costs.4 Previous studies of Asian Americans found that ...

For example, New York's Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, a Medicaid initiative designed to reduce preventable hospitalization by 25% over five years, sets the stage for particularly ...
