David Warner creates unbeaten opening batting record in 3-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka

first_imgAdvertisementAfter a disastrous Ashes campaign earlier this year, Aussie opener David Warner bounced back to form with three match winning performances against Sri Lanka in the recently concluded T20I series. The left hander demolished the Lanka boys all by himself, scoring 217 runs in 3 matches without even getting dismissed in those games.Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesWarner smashed a swashbuckling 56-ball 100 in the 1st T20I in Adelaide, and helped his team easily chase down a mere target of 118 in the 2nd fixture in Brisbane; scoring 60 from 41 deliveries. Today, in the final match of the series at Melbourne, he yet again played the anchor role remaining unbeaten at 57 while Australia completed their whitewash over Sri Lanka.And with these sublime performances, not only he was judged as the man of the series but created a number of records as well; being the first ever opener to remain unbeaten in all 3 games of a 3-match T20I series and the 1st Australian to score 2000 runs in T20I cricket.

Keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape will vastly reduce your risk of winter emergencies. Before the season swings into high-gear, make sure to do the following:Schedule a maintenance checkup to ensure your vehicle’s systems are in good shape and all fluids are at the right levels.Keep an eye on your tires, as freezing temperatures can deplete them of air. Routinely inflate them so they’re in accordance with the pressure recommendations on the driver side door jamb.Speaking of tires, get new ones if their tread is worn to less than 1/8-inch. Consider investing in winter tires if you live in an area with heavy snowfall. We compiled a list of some of our favorite winter tires.Maintain at least a half tank of gas at all times. This will prevent the gas line from freezing and the additional weight will improve traction.Monitor weather reports and heed all warnings.Don’t rush yourself. Leave the house earlier than usual to allow time for scraping off ice and defrosting your windows. Let your car warm up for a few minutes before driving.If conditions are particularly bad, put snow chains on your tires (learn how to do that here).Note: Find out how your vehicle responds to snowy conditions. We suggest practicing snow driving in a large, empty parking lot. Better yet, consider taking winter driving lessons.Driving SafelyJELENIA GORA, POLAND – MAY 03: Traffic jam on mountain road caused by heavy snowfall on 03.05.2011 nearby Jelenia Góra PolandNow for the tricky part. Before driving, ask yourself once again whether you really, truly need to. Even if you’re a snow-driving badass, you’ll likely encounter many drivers who have no idea what they’re doing, so it’s important to keep these tips in mind:Take your time. Drive well below the posted speed limit and accelerate much more slowly than you normally would.Stick with the lower gears to maximize traction.Be extra cautious when driving over bridges, overpasses, and shady patches — these areas are more likely to be frozen.Leave extra space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you — at least three times as much distance as you normally would.Maintain your momentum as best you can. Start braking early when you see a stoplight ahead.Do not pass plows or sand trucks; the road conditions in front of them are usually much worse.Do not use cruise control or overdrive.Note: Just because your vehicle has all-wheel drive doesn’t mean it can blast down snowy roadways. Always underestimate your vehicle’s capabilities and drive cautiously.Braking and Turning ‘Tis the season for rising winds, falling snow, and treacherous roads. Every year, thousands of auto accidents occur as a direct result of winter weather. As a responsible citizen, the safest thing you can do is stay home until the snow melts. However, there are some places in the country where that is simply not practical (we’re looking at you, Alaska). The second best way to stay safe is to learn how to drive in snow like a boss.Prepping Your Ride Since you probably won’t be driving in a straight line, you should know how to brake and turn effectively in snowy and icy conditions.Like we mentioned before, give yourself plenty of room to stop — ideally three times more space than normal, and potentially more if you’re going downhill.Do not pump your anti-lock brakes. Instead, maintain a steady pressure.Take your time when turning. Slow down, take your foot off the brake, turn the wheel gently, then accelerate after the turn is complete.If your vehicle starts to skid, ease off the brake and accelerator. Turn the wheel in the direction of the skid to straighten your front tires and regain control.Do not brake or turn suddenly.Note: Build plenty of momentum when approaching a hill. Slow down near the top and continue downhill very slowly.In Case of EmergencyYour expert driving skills should prevent you from getting stranded on the side of the road. Still, it’s always a good idea to be prepared for the worst with some crucial must-haves:Keep a roadside emergency kit in your vehicle at all times. It should include jumper cables, a collapsible shovel, road flares, a flashlight, a cell phone, extra batteries, water, non-perishable food, an emergency blanket, gloves, a warm hat, and hand warmers.Pack a winch and strong cable in case you get stuck and nobody’s around. You could also have a passerby attach the cable to their vehicle and pull your car out of the snow.Stow a bag of sand in the trunk. The extra weight will improve traction while driving, and you can sprinkle sand on the road to help your stuck tires grip the ice.Note: If you become stranded, stay in your vehicle to conserve your body heat. Don’t leave your vehicle on; instead, turn it on and off in intervals to save gas and keep the interior warm. Make sure the exhaust pipe isn’t blocked by snow.Get the GearNow that you know how to drive in the snow, let’s get you set up with the gear you’ll need to do it.Thule Snow Chains –  $90These simple chains from Thule are the perfect no-fuss accessories for bad weather. Built with durable, hardened manganese nickel alloy steel, they’ll plow through the snow and provide excellent traction on the road.See ItBlack Diamond Snow Shovel – $41last_img read more

Canadian lacrosse teams promotion fails to score big win with all fans

Canadian lacrosse teams promotion fails to score big win with all fans

first_imgSASKATOON — A promotion by the Saskatchewan Rush of the National Lacrosse League to get fans involved in a singalong of what has become a controversial Christmas favourite is being called silly and tasteless in some postings to social media.Every home game of the Saskatoon-based club features a singalong and during halftime at an exhibition match against the Calgary Roughnecks last Saturday the lyrics to the 1944 classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” were projected on a giant screen, with fans urged to belt them out.Rush players stood along the boards holding signs similar to the front page of a newspaper with the song’s title as the headline, while a penguin statue at the arena entrance was adorned with the title and lyrics.Some comments posted later on the team’s Facebook site questioned why the Rush would get involved with renewed scrutiny of what some people have said are the song’s inappropriate lyrics in light of the #MeToo movement.Have you heard? Baby, it’s cold outside. pic.twitter.com/z3psnBrraF— Saskatchewan Rush (@SaskRushLAX) December 9, 2018CBC Radio joined at least two other Canadian broadcasters last week in pulling the song out of their rotations this year.Rush owner Bruce Urban says the intent was to poke fun at how overly sensitive society has become.“You’re simply mocking the people who stood up to say, ‘Hey, this song seems a little creepy, especially given the current political climate,’” read one of the comments on the team’s Facebook site.Another quipped: “Why not put this kind of effort into something that matters? There are a lot of homeless folks that could use energy like this to help them when it’s cold outside.”One person said the promotion mocked those who say the song sounds “a little creepy,” especially given the current political climate.“This display wasn’t about calling out a dumb piece of news. This was about a professional male athletics team letting it be known that conversations regarding consent are trivial and a joke. Maybe next time, have a little class.”Urban, who was behind the idea, said the intent was to create some levity with what he called a “flirtatious, fun Christmas song.”“For those people who are sensitive, I get it. I’m all for a movement that talks about proper and equal rights for men and women … but we need to keep in the limits and not get carried away as well,” he said.Early last week, Cleveland radio station WDOK-FM announced it would no longer play the song in response to listener feedback. Some took issue with lyrics where one singer is trying to persuade the other to stay inside, with exchanges that include, “What’s in this drink?” and “Baby, don’t hold out.”In Canada, Bell Media, which runs two 24-hour Christmas stations in Ottawa and Vancouver, said the tune would not be on their playlists this year. Rogers Media and CBC Radio made similar moves.“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been considered a holiday classic ever since it won the Academy Award for best original song in the film “Neptune’s Daughter.”The Rush — reigning champions of the 11-team NLL — begin their regular season on the road against the New England Black Wolves on Dec. 28. They play their season home opener against the San Diego Seals on Jan. 5.(CTV Saskatoon, The Canadian Press)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

ORegan says Cat Lake housing money will not be spent on consultant

first_imgOTTAWA — Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O’Regan says the government is “deeply disturbed” by a report that a consultant working for Cat Lake First Nation is demanding a fee of more than $1 million for helping negotiate the band’s recent housing agreement with Ottawa.O’Regan says every penny of the $12.8 million Ottawa promised last month to rebuild mould-infested housing in the community will go to housing.He says his department is following up on the idea that a consultant who is working for the northwestern Ontario reserve says his contract means he is to get 10 per cent of any new federal money coming into the reserve.That would be $1.28 million of the funds for Cat Lake to build 25 new homes and modular housing units and renovate 21 others.NDP MP Charlie Angus says the money is to be used to give the community a new beginning and wants assurances from O’Regan that the funds won’t “go to make some outside consultant a millionaire.”O’Regan says the government’s contract for the funds was signed with the First Nation and nobody else.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN agencies call for more emphasis on aid for agriculture and rural

UN agencies call for more emphasis on aid for agriculture and rural

In a paper prepared for the substantive session of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), currently meeting in New York through the end of the month, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP), also welcomed the G8 agreement to immediately wipe out some $40 billion in debt owed by 18 developing countries without cutting overall funds available to those or other developing countries.However, the agencies said that despite the fact that the majority of poor people live in rural areas and that hunger is a major cause of poverty, initiatives aimed at agriculture and rural development and on direct food assistance have been sorely lacking. “The poorest countries are those with predominately agricultural economies and societies, and the three agencies said there is ample evidence that transforming rural lives and livelihoods is essential for successfully reducing hunger and poverty,” the agencies said. The agencies called for increasing resource mobilization, combined with greater aid efficiency and focusing the aid where the poor are concentrated – in rural areas. They also called for better harmony between actions on aid and those on trade. Increasing developing country access to world agricultural markets and making their agriculture more competitive domestically and internationally will greatly enhance the impact of development assistance.Meanwhile, with the G8 summit also focusing on climate change, the FAO gathered a group of natural resource experts in Rome to discuss ways of giving poor countries incentives under the Kyoto Protocol to improve the use of fuel wood and reduce deforestation, loss of vegetation cover and land degradation.The Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism does give credit for afforestation and reforestation projects, but does not provide incentives for a more sustainable fuel wood and charcoal production and use, which could lead to a reduction of deforestation and land degradation.FAO says that some practical ways in which poor countries could receive payments for reducing emissions while improving the living conditions of their people include introducing more fuel-efficient domestic stoves and substituting the use of non-renewable biomass with biogas, bioethanol, agricultural residues and sustainably produced and harvested fuel wood. read more

Civilians still victims of violent conflict despite recent UN efforts Annan says

Civilians still victims of violent conflict despite recent UN efforts Annan says

“In the five years since the adoption of Security Council resolution 1296 (2000) there have been new challenges to the safety and well-being of civilian populations, and the tools that we have at our disposal to address these concerns need to be developed accordingly,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan says in his latest report on the matter, which the Council discussed today.In his report, Mr. Annan points to the conflicts in northern Uganda, the Darfur region of Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as examples of the forced displacement and violence against women. The occupied Palestinian territory and Colombia were cited as examples of complex situations that include terrorism, and Nepal and Myanmar as cases of economic suffering resulting from armed conflict.“Whatever the nature of the threat to the protection of the civilian population, compliance with international humanitarian law, human rights law, refugee law and international criminal law by all parties concerned provides the strongest basis for ensuring respect for the safety of the civilian population,” Mr. Annan said.The report says that improvements in the design of peacekeeping missions, supported by mandates that address the specific protection needs any given environment will better shield civilians.Jan Egeland, UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, said that efforts by peacekeeping missions to provide physical security for civilians needed to be augmented by concrete measures to facilitate a secure environment more generally.“Year in and year out, we are unable to undertake adequate humanitarian programmes in severe emergencies because no coherent and systematic attempts are made to end the conflict,” he warned. “We become an expensive plaster on an open, unhealed wound. The band-aid approach costs lives and ultimately costs the international community dearly in both moral and financial terms.”In the day-long discussion that followed Mr. Egeland’s presentation, involving some 40 speakers, participants generally agreed on the urgent need for stronger action from the Security Council to protect civilians. A number of speakers voiced concern that the Council has been sending mixed signals regarding war crimes as well as the enforcement of its own resolutions.In that light, some drew attention to the continued impunity for militias in Darfur, which they said was “seriously challenging” the Council’s credibility. They pointed out that the Council’s own resolution had committed the 15-nation body to respond to situations where civilians were being targeted or where assistance to them was being obstructed. read more

No question of privatisation of railways some units will be

first_imgNEW DELHI: Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday said there was “no question” of privatisation of the railways, but said the ministry will invite investments for new lines and projects in national interest. Addressing the Lok Sabha on the issue of Demands for Grants of the railways, Goyal said track kilometre grew from 77,609 km to 89,919 km from 1950-2014 and rose to 1,23,236 km in the past five years. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us “There is no question of privatisation of railways. Railways cannot be privatised. However, if we have to increase the facilities in railways then obviously we need investments for it. We have taken a decision to encourage public private partnerships and we will also corporatise some units,” the minister said. “There is no question of privatisation of the railways, but we should invite investment in national interest if there are new projects and lines,” the minister told the House.

During Congress rule, not one coach was manufactured in Rae Bareli’s Modern Coach Factory, one of the production units of which will be corporatised, he said. But the first coach was made in August 2014 shortly after the BJP came to power, he added. “There is only one difference between winners and losers, losers see difficulties while winners look at goals,” Goyal said.last_img read more

Security alarm What made Indian Inc shell out on cyber insurance

Security alarm What made Indian Inc shell out on cyber insurance

first_imgThe deal has valued SBI Life at Rs 46,000 crore, higher than its rival ICICI Prudential.Google FlickrThe globally orchestrated cyberattacks forced many non-information technology (IT) and -banking companies to shell out on cyber insurance worth Rs 640 crore ($100 million), Business standard reported.”Indian firms are buying cyber insurance from Rs 64 crore ($1 million) to Rs 6,400 crore ($1,000 million). The early adopters and those with cyber insurances are increasing their cover,” Sanjay Kedia, country head and chief executive officer, Marsh India, told BS. He added that companies with exposure to the European General Data Protection Regulation were proactive in expanding their cover as they could be fined as much as four percent of their global annual turnover for failing to comply with insurance rules.Earlier the trend was different with only IT and banking companies would purchase cyber insurance, as their business in developed countries required them to comply with data protection regulations.Now wind moving in all direction forcing companies from manufacturing, pharmaceutical, automobile and ancillary activity, oil and energy, as well as utility companies to purchase customised cyber and commercial crime policies that cover a range of risks.This is now a necessity, claim experts, as India is one of the top destinations for digital services, with the government pushing digitisation and an increasing smartphone and Internet penetration. At the same time, India is also one of the top targets of cybercrimes — it was the third-worst hit country by WannaCry, BS reported.”With a surge in reports of organisations being duped by fraudsters online, such as the Bangladesh Bank heist last year, there has been 25 percent increase in requests for crime insurance policies over the past few years,” BS quoted Sanjay Datta, chief underwriter—claims and reinsurance, ICICI Lombard.The business daily also quoted an EY report published earlier this year saying that it had noted 55 percent of Indian enterprises do not have a threat-assessment programme. The study also found 68 percent of companies would not increase their security spending even if a direct supplier was attacked, and despite knowing suppliers have access to its systems.”The cost of insurance goes up when insurance companies see a weak security system. Companies also do not have a model to measure their losses effectively and hence they don’t see the need to invest (in insurance). Yet, the cost of insurance cover goes down only when the volume of policies increases,” said Sivarama Krishnan, partner and leader for cybersecurity, PwC India.He also noted that unlike health and vehicle insurance, there was no regulatory requirement for cyber insurance. At present, in India, insurance companies provide policies covering common cyber risks such as legal liabilities for data breach, loss of customer information, loss of revenue, ransom and certain kinds of incidental expenses related to cyberattacks, said Venkat Nippani, partner, Grant Thornton India LLP.last_img read more

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Delays Controversial Change After Backlash

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Delays Controversial Change After Backlash

first_img X Insurers vs. Freestanding ERsDr. Robert Morrow said Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas data shows over 80% of their out-of-network ER claims are from freestanding emergency rooms.There have been various reports of ongoing battles between insurers and freestanding emergency rooms; both of which claim to be in the patient’s best interest. And Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas’ potential change in review process adds another layer to that. “Make no mistake—lives will be lost if this policy is allowed to go into effect,” said TAFEC Executive Director Brad Shields. “Patients’ lives and wellbeing are being threatened by health insurance companies who are treating Texans like second-class citizens. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas’ ER patient penalty policy that was set to go into effect on June 4th is a direct violation of both federal and state laws, and indefensible by any logical, ethical, and moral standard.”  In addition to TAFEC believing the review change is in violation of prudent layperson standards, the group also thinks, “by not providing usual and customary reimbursement rates, insurance providers violate the intent of the medical community, and legislators who turned the prudent layperson standard into law,” according to its website. The organization referenced Section 1301.155 of the Texas Insurance Code; which references the prudent layperson standard, defines emergency care, and outlines how insurers must provide reimbursement.But Ho believes there is a direct correlation between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas wanting a stricter claims review process and the existence of freestanding emergency rooms. “I think a small group of bad actors who are operating certain freestanding emergency departments have brought this intervention upon themselves,” said Ho. “I think that this campaign, and it seems to me like a publicity campaign, is being led by a small number of doctors who are making substantial amounts of money off of operating freestanding emergency departments. And I think they’re managing to cloak their behavior well.”Ho believes Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas’ review change could end up saving money for policy holders, because it lowers the amount of wasteful expenditures.  “Our central concern is that the consumer protections are maintained with any changes that goes into effect,” said Ben Gonzalez, spokesman of the Texas Department of Insurance. “One of the things we’re interested in finding out is: HMO’s typically provide coverage for emergency room screenings. And, so, we want to make sure that is maintained. So, when a patient goes into the emergency room with something that they feel is an emergency, something that is life-threatening, they should be covered for that until it’s determined that it’s not emergency. So, any screens that take place to determine whether or not that [emergency] medical condition exists should be covered, as far as we’re concerned.”Gonzalez said, most importantly, people have the right to seek reasonable and legitimate emergency care. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas has said it agrees with that sentiment, and will work closely with TDI to answer its questions before the August 6 rollout. But will those forthcoming answers satisfy both TDI and protesting physicians in Texas?As it currently stands, emergency physician Dr. Alison Haddock still believes a review change like this would be crossing a line. “I’m hoping this is not the place where we’re going as a country,” said Haddock. “Seeing the system break down in this way for our patients is just really scary for us, as emergency physicians.”And she said you never know who won’t seek care, out of fear of receiving a surprise bill. The push-back from Texas physiciansThe Texas Medical Association and 18 other Texas medical societies sent a letter to the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), in protest of the change.The letter states, in part:“BCBSTX is asking [patients] to diagnose their symptoms at a critical and emotional moment, when time can be of the essence. As a result, it is very likely that extremely ill patients will not seek emergency medical care while, bluntly, their conditions worsen or they die…. Scaring them into avoiding emergency care seems a heavy-handed approach that could be detrimental to good patient care.”The entire letter can be found below: 00:00 /04:04 The Texas College of Emergency Physicians also signed the letter.“Really core to me is that patients cannot self-diagnose,” said Dr. Alison Haddock, board member of the Texas College of Emergency Physicians. “I think it’s wrong to be putting that extra burden on patients in their times of greatest need. No one wants to go to ER. That’s no one’s idea of a great time. But when people look at their situation think, ‘I think I’m having a medical emergency,’ they have the right to come access our care…. But we also need you to have the right for the insurance company pay appropriately for care that you need. And that’s something that people get really nervous about and afraid of, and will potentially delay care and put themselves in great danger.”Allison LeeDr. Alison Haddock, an emergency physician in Houston, prepares for her afternoon shift at Ben Taub Hospital.Haddock believes the change is a violation of Texas’ prudent layperson law, which was passed in 1997. It protects patients’ rights to seek emergency care without preauthorization for coverage and doesn’t allow insurance companies to base that coverage on a final diagnosis; but rather the initial symptoms. “Patients come to the ER because they feel that’ they’re having a medical emergency,” said Haddock. “The patient charts don’t tell us the mindset of patient. And that really what the prudent layperson standard is about: in the mind of that patient, were they worried about an emergency, about a danger to their life, or limb, or organ system? That’s what the law is about. Blue Cross Blue Shield said they’ll look at patient charts to figure out if they met the prudent layperson standard or not, but there’s no way to really do that, because this isn’t the patient’s diary. This is their medical chart. So, I think we can pretty safely presume that when patients come to the emergency room, they are coming because of their concern for a medical emergency.” The growing popularity of freestanding emergency rooms in TexasTexas became the first state to allow freestanding ER’s almost a decade ago, in 2009. Now, there are more than 200 such facilities across the state. According to a study of more than 16 million Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas insurance claims between 2012 to 2015, the use of the state’s freestanding emergency rooms shot up 236 percent, as opposed to a 24 percent increase for urgent care clinics and a 10 percent growth rate for hospital-based ERs. Data analysts with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas co-authored the study with experts at Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center.Vivian Ho, a health economist at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy and the institute’s Director of the Center for Health and Biosciences, was one of the co-authors.“The notion that people are walking into hospital emergency departments for things that shouldn’t be treated in an emergency room has been widespread throughout country,” Ho explained. “Ten to 20 percent of emergency department visits could have been taken care of in lower cost, less aggressive care sites. So, we’ve known for a long time that there is a proportion of the population that is wasting the time and the complex resources that we offer in emergency care centers.”Ho said that probability increases when you introduce freestanding emergency rooms into the mix. And, those can get expensive for patients.In 2015, a freestanding ER bill averaged $2,199, as opposed to $168 at an urgent care clinic, according to the aforementioned study. Researchers said there was still an expectation for patients to pay approximately one-third of the price in each case. An average hospital-based ER bill was $60 more expensive than the freestanding ER average, but patients were only responsible for 33 percent of the cost of treatment, the study concluded.  Ensuring patients’ rightsThe Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) is the state’s regulatory body that makes sure companies are in line Texas’ insurance laws and patients’ rights are maintained. Houston Public Media obtained TDI’s letter to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, which outlines specific questions about how the new review process would be implemented.  Wikimedia Commons Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas responds “If you have or think you have an emergency condition, go to emergency room. And if that’s the case, it’s going to be covered,” said Dr. Robert Morrow, Southeast Texas Market President for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. He said the new process, in fact, embraces the prudent layperson standard.“It doesn’t look at diagnosis that somebody leaves the emergency center with. The review looks at the reason the person sought emergency care,” said Morrow. “We follow the law now. That is not going to change.”Morrow said there is no change to benefits to HMO members: it’s a stricter claims review process. He said the emergency claims would not be denied without being reviewed by licensed physicians, which would then still open to the appeal process. Morrow added Blue Cross’ SmartER website helps inform members where to go for non-emergency care, and tries to direct non-emergencies away from the ERs.In a statement, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas said:Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) is pleased to work closely with TDI over the next 60 days. During this time, BCBSTX will provide any further information TDI or Commissioner Sullivan requests while continuing to educate our members on the importance of appropriately using emergency services.We anticipate this thoughtful, multi-step review process will be implemented on August 6, 2018 to provide protection for our members from inappropriate billing, egregious charges and fraud, waste and abuse by out-of-network emergency departments.In an e-mailed statement, Brad Shields, Executive Director of the Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC), said the “real” abuse is “confusing patients and jeopardizing lives by making it more likely that someone in need of emergency treatment won’t seek it…. BCBSTX stands to gain by discouraging Texans from seeking emergency care and they are misleading lawmakers, regulators, and patients with claims they are attempting to prevent the use and abuse of ‘out-of-network’ emergency departments,” said Shields. “The reality is that, according to law, all emergency care must be provided to patients at in-network benefit levels.” The largest health insurer in Texas was set to change a review process on Monday. But it has been delayed until August 6, after getting backlash from physicians in Texas.If the new process is launched, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas said its 500,000 HMO members may have to pay the entire cost of an out-of-network emergency room bill, if they go for something not serious or life-threatening.The insurance carrier said the stricter review policy is designed to help make health care costs more affordable. In an April 18 memo, Blue Cross first explained the change by pointing to examples of people who use out-of-network ERs for things like head lice or sprained ankles.

The study, led by researchers at Cleveland Clinic, uncovered in greater detail the impact of patient education tools on adequate preparation for screenings.For the study, Cleveland Clinic researchers focused on monitoring outpatient colonoscopies over the course of a five-year period. Between 2010 to 2014, more than 2,500 patients with planned procedures received an educational packet by mail, a pre-procedure telephone call and an educational video with details on the importance of pre-procedural preparation. The interactive program, designed and delivered by Emmi, educated patients about their upcoming procedure. It served the purpose of reinforcing the importance of taking the appropriate preparatory steps so that the screening was optimal and repeat procedures were avoided. A unique code was linked to each patient’s medical record to document whether or not the Emmi program was viewed.Of the 1,251 patients who viewed the educational program, analysis revealed higher rates of satisfactory preparation — 92.3 percent compared to 87.4 percent for the group that did not watch it. In addition, there was a reduction in the need for a repeat procedure within three years — only 3.3 percent had an increased need for a colonoscopy compared to 6.6 percent for those patients who did not view the video.“Bowel preparation is crucial to the success of colonoscopies. Our study shows that patient-centered education programs with video components can help,” said Maged Rizk, M.D., a gastroenterologist and quality officer at Cleveland Clinic, who led the study.Colonoscopies remain the primary tool for colorectal cancer screening, which is the third most common cause of cancer related deaths amongst both men and women in the United States. However, nearly 25 percent of all colonoscopies are inadequately prepared for, which may limit the efficacy of the procedure and increase the likelihood for repeat screening. This study demonstrates that engaging educational interventions serve as a means to improve the quality of procedure preparation and can reduce the need for repeat procedures in patients undergoing colonoscopy screenings. In addition, this presents a cost-effective and easy-to-implement intervention that translates to improved quality outcomes for outpatient colonoscopies.Industry studies show pre-procedural education can have a significant impact on reducing anxiety and improving outcomes for patients undergoing a variety of procedures. Researchers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) found interactive multimedia programs reduced anxiety, lowered sedation medication requirements and shortened the procedure times1. A Gallup study generated similar findings after analyzing responses from patients undergoing medical device implantation. Results showed pre-procedural education increased overall patient satisfaction, reduced problem incidence and improved quality of life2.For more information: www.amjmed.comReferences1.
