Knowing this plant, that’s a female plant from the earth, gives me a way to get back to my center. I’ve also always sought a very active, wondrous, explorative, expansive path to deepening my spiritual growth. I’ve traveled many places solo and I have an incredible, deep meditation practice. I surround myself with a lot of truth, and getting into the flow of the universe.
Each year, to accompany our Healthcare Informatics 100 list of the largest companies in U.S. health information technology, we profile fast-growing companies that could very well make the list in the future. Below are write-ups of the third and fourth companies that made this year’s Up-and-Comers rendition. The remaining two write-ups will be published later this week.
Cannabis delivery has never been easier thanks to Vireo Health’s New York medical marijuana delivery service. We understand that individuals prescribed medical marijuana can’t always make it to a dispensary. At the same time, cannabis-based capsules, oral solutions, vaporization cartridges, and vaporization oils can be a vital part of treating chronic pain, cancer, AIDS, epilepsy, and other serious conditions. Going without that vital medication for even a day can be painful and difficult.
You can either throw a tremendous number of expensive, scarce bodies at the problem, which isn’t scalable, or you can use technology. I’m not talking about mere notifications that an encounter has occurred, which we do, but a deeper level of collaboration. A mental health provider in the emergency department creates a crisis plan for the patient at 3:00 in the morning that involves a primary care provider who is affiliated with a multi-specialty clinic that is not connected to the health system and a Medicaid managed care manager. How do you help those individuals get on the same page and interact with the patient in sequence so that we’re not wasting resources or missing opportunities to help the patient navigate across the continuum, efficiently using the existing technology infrastructure of each organization? That’s the set of problems that we’re focused on.
From 2010 to 2016, the # of recorded neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) cases increased by nearly 200% in Kentucky. Our partnership with the Kentucky Hospital Association will enable physicians to identify and treat NAS cases before they escalate. http://www.modernhealthcare.com/article/20181015/NEWS/181019931/ky-initiative-looks-to-curb-rise-of-babies-in-opioid-withdrawal …pic.twitter.com/Uf2HlEexnu
The findings were then reviewed with the physician IT group, or what Sanders calls the PIT crew, to select what they refer to as the “Goldilocks” cohort. “This is a group of patients that had the combination of low cost, short length of stay, low readmissions and almost zero mortality rate. We then can publish the care path and then monitor adherence to that care path across our physicians,” Sanders says.

Despite this, the mail order marijuana is already alive and lucrative in Canada. Due to legal restrictions against Canada Post seizing mail, cannabis is already being delivered to customers in all provinces. As it becomes legal across Canada, these businesses will likely grow and gain more customers. In fact, it’s projected that marijuana sales will outsell liquor in Canada by 2020.
As a young adult, I was in a very serious car accident. I broke a lot of bones — my second vertebrae, my neck, ribs, a compound fracture in my leg... It’s a miracle I’m not a quadriplegic. I was on a respirator and couldn’t breathe because there was fluid between my lung and ribcage. I couldn’t move because I had this thing holding up my head. A nurse around every few hours to help me cough so I wouldn’t get pneumonia. Eventually after getting off the respirator, one nurse came around and he mentioned cannabis. He said, “Did you know cannabis does the same type of thing to your lungs? It’s a bronchial dilator. The drug I’m pumping into your lungs is a bronchial dilator.” From that point on I realized I had a choice. I never took another pain pill. I just used cannabis for the next eleven months to recover. I always loved cannabis, but now I had an even more personal connection to the plant.

The vote does not immediately translate to an open application process for those seeking a permit to open a dispensary, but rather to begin the conversation and research into creating the rules and regulations that will allow medical marijuana sales in the future. With the total ban in place, City Council would have been unable to approach the topic with any real meaning. At least with the new amendment, Fresno can move forward on deciding what medical marijuana operations could look like within city limits.
It was the year 2000 and I left Abott’s Habit. A friend of mine was moving out of town and all his friends needed weed, so that’s how I started my delivery service. It was just me with a pager, seven days a week. I couldn’t keep up with all the orders. My team grew to four girls and we split profits evenly. It became more like a private club, with a password to access. Eventually a woman I had a catering company with got upset and reported me to Santa Monica Police. They came in, raided us and took everything. I went to court and had to go through the legal system. Today I have an amazing lawyer who helped us file for a delivery license in California so we can transition to the recreational market.

“Every hospital has been struggling with this for decades, managing clinical variation,” he says, noting that traditional methods of addressing clinical variation management have been inefficient, as developing care pathways, which involves identifying best practices for high-cost procedures, often takes up to six months or even years to develop and implement. “By the time you finish, it’s out of date,” Sanders says. “There wasn’t a good way of doing this, other than picking your spots periodically, doing analysis and trying to make sense of the data.”
A recent evaluation of Collective Medical’s impact throughout the state of Oregon, conducted by the Oregon Health Leadership Council, found a promising downward trend in ED visits by patients with history of high ED utilization during a three-year period. As a participant in this evaluation, Kaiser Permanente Northwest initially used Collective Medical’s EDIE application to identify and collaborate on care plans for a group of approximately 363 patients with complex clinical and social challenges who visited the ED more than six times in six months. Over the three years of this program Kaiser has seen a 42 percent reduction in ED visits and a 47 percent reduction in inpatient admissions for those individuals enrolled in this program.

Collective Medical is engaged with every national health plan in the country, hundreds of hospitals and health systems, and tens of thousands of providers and care managers including those in emergency departments, primary care practices, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, emergency medical services, and mental and behavioral health organizations. Collective Medical’s network has visibility across 13 states, with an additional 10 states expected to go live in 2018.
Because Pot Valet collaborates with many dispensaries, it is able to offer patients the widest choice of marijuana strains and other products. Flowers, concentrates, oils, lubricants, vapors, feminine hygiene products, and even a variety of cannabis edibles, patients have access to the largest selection of marijuana available anywhere in California, all products are tested in laboratories for quality and assurance.

Collective seeks to close provider communication gaps that undermine patient care. It uses data feeds, risk analytics, notifications, and shared care guidelines to reduce emergency department (ED) utilization, inpatient readmissions and downstream care transitions, including to post-acute operators. After collecting data from all EDs visited by a patient, its solution packages that data into actionable insights, and delivers them to clinicians via real-time notifications. Collective is currently partnered with more than a dozen state hospital associations, and recently added the Florida Hospital Association to its network of partners.


Cool Collective Medical Technologies (CMT), the leader in network-driven collaborative care manageme...nt, today announced that it has, through its EDIE and PreManage applications, earned Certified Status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance.

Clovis was incorporated as a city in February 1912. Sadly, the lumber mill burned down in 1914 and was never rebuilt.  Clovis still has remnants of its rich wild-west heritage, reflected in the slogan "Clovis – A Way of Life". The Clovis Rodeo is still in operation after 100 years.  The bronco-carnival features big hats with lots of cattle, farmer's market, and festival.  Recently "Old Town Clovis" was given a facelift of sorts to bring back its old charm and feeling - in a new (shiny) kind of way.
