  • Predicting high-cost privately insured patients based on self-reported
           health and utilization data.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Efficient targeting of high-cost patients is crucial to the success of innovative care delivery models that attempt to lower costs and improve quality of care through more intensive care management of patients. The results of this study show that in the absence of claims data on prior use and expenditures, patient-reported measures of health status and prior healthcare use are reasonable predictors of future healthcare costs for a privately insured population.

  • Leveraging EHRs for patient engagement: perspectives on tailored program
           outreach.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Patient reactions highlight the challenges of leveraging EHRs for tailored messages. Some viewed messages as caring reminders to take preventive action and others raised concerns over intrusiveness. Optimal lifestyle program outreach to improve quality of care for women at high risk for diabetes may require communication from personal physicians, careful development to mitigate concerns over privacy and authenticity, and techniques to counteract the threatening nature of personalized risk communication.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Health-related and academic sources are largely absent from the Twitter conversations with US Congressional health policy staff. Even within social media, traditional and political news media are important information intermediaries that researchers and journals should target to disseminate health policy evidence.

  • The price may not be right: the value of comparison shopping for
           prescription drugs.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Price shopping for medications within a small geographic area can yield considerable cost savings for the uninsured and consumers in high-deductible health plans with high negotiated prices. Clinicians and patient advocates have an incentive to convey this information to patients to improve adherence to prescribed medicines and lower the financial burden of purchasing prescription drugs.

    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: US internal medicine physicians who completed residency between 2003 and 2013 reported high levels of adoption of overtreatment guidelines. Physicians who reported the highest levels of guideline adoption reported recommending services targeted by these guidelines in their practice.

  • Availability and variation of publicly reported prescription drug prices.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Publicly reported information on state prescription drug price websites is often deficient. When prices are reported, there can be significant variation in the prices of prescriptions, which could translate into substantial savings for consumers who pay out-of-pocket for prescription drugs.

    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The 3-year community-based patient navigation program effectively increased cervical cancer screening uptake and adherence and improved the cost-effectiveness of the screening program for Hispanic women 18 years or older in San Antonio, Texas. Future research is needed to translate and disseminate the patient navigation program to other socioeconomic and demographic groups to test its robustness and design.

  • A primer on exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, fat malabsorption, and
           fatty acid abnormalities.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Alkaade S, Vareedayah AA Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is characterized by a deficiency of exocrine pancreatic enzymes, resulting in deficits in digestion of all macronutrients, with deficiencies in digestion of fats being the most clinically relevant. The leading cause of EPI is chronic pancreatitis. However, many other causes and conditions may be implicated, including cystic fibrosis, pancreatic duct obstruction, gastric and pancreatic surgery, diabetes mellitus and other conditions. Physical and biochemical causes of EPI include decreased production and secretion of lipase, increased lipase destruction, pancreatic duct obstruction, decreased lipase stimulation and degradation, as well as gastrointestinal motility disorders. EPI is largely diagnosed c...

  • Guidance for supplemental enteral nutrition across patient populations.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Nguyen DL Enteral nutrition is preferred over parenteral nutrition as a result of the greater safety of enteral nutrition therapy and comparative convenience. A wide variety of enteral nutrition products have been developed, including disease-specific products to help manage the nutritional needs of patients with kidney failure, liver failure, lung disease, diabetes, and other conditions. An assessment of each patient's nutritional needs and digestive function should be conducted prior to initiation of enteral nutrition therapy. Other considerations in determining the appropriate route and method of enteral nutrition administration include the time and nursing involvement required for administration, potential complications of medication administration, and concer...

  • Options for addressing exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in patients
           receiving enteral nutrition supplementation.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Freedman SD Patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) have suboptimal secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes and experience a range of clinical symptoms related to the malabsorption of fat. In patients with EPI unable to meet their nutritional requirements, enteral nutrition (EN) support is used to augment nutritional status. In addition to protein and carbohydrate, EN formulas contain fats as a calorie source, as well as vitamins and minerals to help prevent nutritional deficiencies related to malabsorption. Semielemental enteral nutrition formulas are advantageous as they contain hydrolyzed protein, shorter chain carbohydrates, and may contain medium chain triglycerides as a fat source. However, severely pancreatic insufficient patients may be una...

  • Considerations for optimal management of patients with pulmonary arterial
           hypertension: a multi-stakeholder roundtable discussion.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Studer SM, Kingman M, Calo L, Cannon HE, Dunn JD, James T, Lewis SJ, Gilkin RJ, Pruett JA A roundtable panel of national and regional managed care decision makers and providers met to discuss pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and strategies for management. As a rare, complex disease with high economic costs and potentially devastating outcomes, PAH necessitates that managed care providers balance optimal care with efficient use of healthcare resources. PAH specialists are recognized by health plans as knowledgeable experts and integral partners in managing patients and resources. The diagnosis of PAH must be confirmed by a right heart catheterization. Available therapies are indicated almost exclusively for patients with PAH (riociguat is also indicated in chr...

  • Parkinson's disease and Parkinson's disease psychosis: a perspective on
           the challenges, treatments, and economic burden.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Fredericks D, Norton JC, Atchison C, Schoenhaus R, Pill MW Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease associated with a decrease in the neurotransmitter dopamine and characterized by the cardinal motor hallmarks of resting tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia/akinesia, and postural instability. Lesser-known features of PD revolve around nonmotor concerns including psychosis, dementia, sleep disturbances, autonomic dysfunction, and sensory abnormalities. Parkinson's disease psychosis (PDP) contributes significantly to morbidity, mortality, nursing home placement, and quality of life (QOL). PDP management suffers from a lack of safe, effective pharmacological agents and the opposing nature of atypical antipsychotics and dopaminergic therapies. Pim...

      Authors : Milling TJ, Frontera J Thrombosis is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Arterial and venous thromboses are implicated in the pathogenesis of major disorders, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and venous thromboembolism. Over the past decade, direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) (eg, direct thrombin inhibitor and factor Xa [FXa] inhibitors) have been adopted as alternatives to warfarin due to their clinical advantages and efficacy for the treatment of thrombosis. As with all anticoagulants, treatment with DOACs is associated with a risk of major bleeding, including life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeds and intracranial hemorrhages (ICHs). In turn, the burden of bleeding associated with DOAC treatment is itself associat...

  • The relationship between adherence and total spending among Medicare
           beneficiaries with type 2 diabetes.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: This study describes a widespread variation in medication adherence, pharmacy cost sharing, and medical spending in a sample of Medicare beneficiaries with T2D. We found that lower adherence was correlated with higher cost sharing in the Medicare population, perhaps because of unobserved confounding factors. However, the existing literature on patients with employer-sponsored insurance suggests some of this correlation may be indicative of causal relationships.

  • Real-world evidence and the behavioral economics of physician prescribing.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: This article presents a review of leading behavioral economic theories and their application to the results of an Oncology Medical Home pilot that reversed incentives from drug administration to patient care. A host of these theories may explain the irrational economic actors in regard to physician prescribing, including heuristics, framing, and defaults. Ultimately, the complex interplay of behavioral economics may result in reimbursement methodology alternatives to the prevailing fee-for-service payment system having less impact on prescribing behavior than has been conjectured.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Chargemaster rates on uninsured and OON patients impose significant financial burdens on the vulnerable, distort medical prices, and inflate healthcare costs. Applying rudimentary contract law to these practices offers a solution that is simpler and more effective than other administrative and legislative schemes recently adopted in several states. It will prevent providers from hiding behind a convoluted hospital pricing system, encourage the development of attractive narrow-network insurance products, and shield urgently sick individuals from the dread of medical predation. Patients and payers should know that they are under no obligation to pay surprise bills containing chargemaster rates, and state attorneys general can use the law to prevent providers from pursuing charge...

  • Applying organizational behavior theory to primary care.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: We examined the issue of attracting medical students to primary care through the lens of organizational behavior theory. Assuming there are reasons other than lower income potential for why students are inclined against primary care, we applied various principles of the Herzberg 2-factor theory to reimagine the operational flow and design of primary care. We conclude by proposing several solutions to enrich the job, such as decreasing documentation requirements, reducing the emphasis on specialty consultations, and elevating physicians to a supervisory role.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The Medicare program is moving toward value-based purchasing and penalizing home health agencies with poor quality of care. It is critical for home health professionals to invite paid and unpaid supplementary caregivers to initiate care plans and assess their competence. Policies that support unpaid supplementary caregivers can also assist caregivers to care for their loved ones and prevent them from using expensive hospital resources.

      Abstract: Conclusions: Consumer cost sharing reduces the use of physician-administered specialty drugs for rheumatoid arthritis. The higher use of patient self-administered specialty drugs suggests that the disincentives for use of physician-administered drugs were offset by an increased incentive to use self-administered drugs.

  • Effects of Medicare Part D coverage gap on medication adherence.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: Conclusions: Medicare beneficiaries reduced medication use (mainly brand-name drugs) after entering the coverage gap. This result suggests that while beneficiaries' financial burden would continue because of the coverage gap, the gap would not result in a large reduction in medication adherence for essential drugs for diabetes and heart failure.

  • Medicare prescription drug plans as perceived by public health providers.
    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Chan LL, Ko G Providers' knowledge of and satisfaction with Medicare Part D (MPD) remained poor 6 years after the initial implementation in 2006. In the San Francisco Department of Public Health, despite providers' extensive prescribing experience and efforts to prescribe generic over brand medications, identifying a patient's MPD plan, conforming to the formulary, and completing prior authorization requests remain time consuming and challenging to many providers. We advocate for the federal government to take an active role in simplifying, standardizing, and unifying enrollment and formulary information available to providers by creating a provider portal. New regulations should also require MPD companies to conspicuously post formulary information online for eas...

After controlling for clinical, demographic, and hospital factors, cesarean delivery rates increased more rapidly among births covered by private insurance, compared with Medicaid. Changes in insurance coverage associated with healthcare reform may impact costs and quality of care for women giving birth in US hospitals.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The REC program serves as a unique opportunity to address the health information technology needs of PCPs working in underserved areas. Over the course of 2 years, the program has exceeded its goal of enrolling 100,000 priority primary care providers. Provider engagement is the first step in a 3-step process aimed at getting providers to adopt and become meaningful users of electronic health records. Significant work remains for the RECs to meet these objectives, and future research should evaluate the success of the REC program in meeting subsequent milestones.

    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract:
      Authors : Levine LA Peyronie's disease (PD) is characterized by the formation of palpable fibrotic tissue in the tunica albuginea of the penis. It is thought to manifest in response to recurrent microtrauma during erection in those with risk factors that may include wound-healing disorders. The initial stage of PD is thought to last from 6 to 18 months, and it is characterized by an inflammatory period with pain in approximately one-third of men. This initial phase is followed by a chronic phase when pain typically resolves and the deformity stabilizes with no additional plaque development. PD has been reported to develop in up to 9% of adult males according to published literature, but the incidence may be even higher. The most frequently affected age group is men between ...

The drivers of this diversity include increased patient demand requiring a larger number of primary care access points; the need for lower-cost delivery structures that can flourish in a low-margin business model; greater interest in primary care delivery by retailers and hospitals that see their involvement as a means to enhance their core business goals; the increased desire by non-physician providers to gain work independence; and a growing cadre of younger PCPs whose career and job preferences leave them open to working i...

    • Authors: The American Journal of Managed Care
      Abstract: Conclusions: Despite a universal testing policy, the rate of centralized HER2 test documentation was lower than expected and related to disease severity. Differences in regional reporting likely reflect ascertainment bias inherent to centralized pathology reporting rather than testing access. Improved HER2 reporting is encouraged for cancer registration, quality-of-care measurement, and program evaluation. PMID: 23379747 [PubMed - in process] (Source: The American Journal of Managed Care)
