An estimated 14.5% of the 1 122 900 US individuals 13 years of age or older living with HIV in 2015 did not know they were infected, found a recent CDC study that analyzed National HIV Surveillance System data. They account for about 40% of ongoing transmissions of virus in the United States. Across states, the percentage of undiagnosed HIV infections ranged from 5.7% to 18.5%; half of undiagnosed infections were in the South.
Two unrelated measles cases in the Denver metropolitan area cost nearly $70 000 to investigate, according to a recent CDC report. The cases occurred in unvaccinated individuals who had traveled to countries where measles is endemic. Each case exposed multiple people in health care facilities and public places in the United States to the measles. The first was a 14-month-old boy who had spent 3 months in India in 2016.
In theory, patient web portals sound great. Log on and check your medical test results. Easy peasy. In execution, though, they haven’t been so great, according to recent research. Often, patient portals fail to present information in a patient-friendly format. Take the findings of a study out this month. Researchers interviewed 95 adults, patients at one of four large outpatient clinics in Houston, who’d viewed a test result on their portal.
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".
