Penn State Health and Highmark Health have inked a $1 billion deal to form a value-based community care network that aims to improve population health and protect market share by keeping more patients in the region, especially for complex care. Anchored by the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, the plan also calls for collaboration with community physicians and will include new facilities and co-branded health insurance products.
Nurses are increasingly front and center in healthcare innovation efforts, from the classroom to the bedside to the executive suite. Consider these examples from recent FierceHealthcare coverage:Now, a trio of healthcare leaders with nursing backgrounds take a deep dive into the workings of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses’ 16-month, hospital-based nurse leadership and innovation training program, the Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy.
It’s been about 10 years since the word “mHealth” became part of the healthcare lexicon. And since then, the number of mobile technologies, tools and apps has exploded. But has the trend had any impact on outcomes? Well, it’s hard to say. “The evidence to support their rapid and widespread use is limited,” writes Amira Roess, Ph.D., in a recent New England Journal of Medicine “Perspectives” piece.
I've been on Twitter since 2009 and I still don't really understand how to reply to posts with more than one or two comments in a single thread. I think I'm going to just stick to RTs from now on, stop randomly stumbling into the middle (or beginning? Or end?) of conversations...
@ChrisBramwell My dog spotted a slice of pizza up in this tree once. She barked & jumped but couldn't get at it. With hard work and training, she learned to climb that tree. A year later, her diligence paid off: If you look closely, you will see a piece of toast on the magic carbohydrate tree. https://t.co/1jffUshLEA
As long as I've been writing about rising health insurance copays & deductibles (and it's been a long time), it feels like we've reached a tipping point. Hospitals will feel the pain. https://t.co/raLolee4Si
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
