Still, Marion noted, even the concept of AI, as applied to imaging informatics, remains an area with some areas lacking in clarity. “The reality, he said, “is that I think it means different things to different people. The difference between last year and this year is that some things are coming to fruition; it’s more real. And so some vendors are offering viable solutions. The message I’m hearing from vendors this year is, I have this platform, and if a third party wants to develop an application or I develop an application, or even an academic institution develops a solution, I can run it on my platform. They’re trying to become as vendor-agnostic as possible.”

Despite the fact that marijuana is illegal under federal law, ten states, as well as the District of Columbia, have legalized its recreational use. And while several other states have passed laws that broadly decriminalize pot, legal marijuana use is still nearly impossible for over one-third of the country. This confusing patchwork of laws helps explain the recent popularity of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other related products, which are, for the most part, legal to obtain and use throughout the U.S.
Feeling achy? Hit the massage table. At E-motion Sports Massage in Everett, clients can loosen up with a cannabis-infused ointment that many say boosts the impact of the treatment. Massage therapists use a cream infused with cannabinoids, compounds derived from the cannabis plant. They don’t cause a high, but they do have powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-killing effects, says E-motion owner Mercedes Diaz. And because the cream reduces pain, she says, therapists can work muscles more intensively — and effectively. “It is really great for muscle and joint pain, arthritis, sprains, strains,” Diaz says. “With cannabis, we can get in there and do so much more.” The ointment comes in different concentrations, so therapists can choose the right one for each patient’s needs. E-motion offers cannabis cream as a $25 upgrade to any of its regular massage services, which run $100 to $120.

Since its founding eight years ago, Collective Medical (not to be confused with employee benefits company Collective Health) has produced a software platform comprised of two main products. EDIE, designed for emergency departments, connects emergency teams across multiple facilities to identify high-risk, complex needs patients and immediately access care history upon admittance. The PreManage product is intended for a wider population of patients, and is marketed to health plans and providers. It also identifies and tracks high-risk patients upon admittance and discharge from inpatient or emergency care, while allowing teams to easily communicate and coordinate throughout a patient’s care.
After being fed data of past pneumonia treatments, the software automatically created cohorts of patients who had similar outcomes accompanied by the treatments they received at particular times and in what sequence. The program also calculated the direct variable costs, average lengths of stay, readmission and mortality rates for each of those cohorts, along with the statistical significance of its conclusions. Each group had different comorbidities, such as diabetes, COPD and heart failure, which was factored into the application's calculations. At the push of a button, the application created a care path based on the treatment given to the patients in each cohort.

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.


Marion expressed surprise at the seemingly all-encompassing focus on artificial intelligence this year, given the steady march towards value-based healthcare-driven mandates. “Outside of one vendor, I’m not really seeing a whole lot of emphasis this year on value-based care; that’s disappointing,” Marion said. “I don’t know whether people don’t get it or not about value-based care, but the vendors are clearly more focused on AI right now.”
We realized that while bootstrapping a company gives you tremendous autonomy to do the right thing, it’s a rate limiter to growth. Building a network effects-enabled platform hasn’t been previously done at scale in healthcare. We raised capital to accelerate our growth across the country, to deepen our technical capability with significant R&D dollars, and to gain partners who can help us think through these things since this is our first rodeo.

Les hôpitaux publics ne sont pas soumis à une convention collective, au contraire des établissements privés. En effet, la convention collective des établissements privés d’hospitalisation, de soins, de cure et de garde à but non lucratif doit être appliquée dans les établissements privés d’hospitalisation, de consultations et soins, de radiothérapie, de collecte de sang, etc. Les établissements privés de diagnostic, de services hospitaliers, d’hébergement médicalisé et social pour personnes âgées, sont concernés quant à eux par la convention collective de l’hospitalisation privée.
En ce qui concerne le secteur dentaire, les dentistes qui emploient du personnel, doivent appliquer la convention collective des cabinets dentaires, qu’ils exercent seul ou à plusieurs sous forme de cabinet dentaire. En revanche, cette convention n’est pas applicable aux prothésistes dentaires, ni au personnel des laboratoires de prothèses dentaires, qui sont concernés par la convention collective nationale des prothésistes dentaires et des personnels des laboratoires de prothèse dentaire.
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
“Smoke in the Kitchen” with Merry Jane. After I was taken down, I got back up. One of our amazing patients is a producer and asked me to come on with Merry Jane. They wanted a food and cannabis experience. Because of my catering experience, and I’m a foodie, they came to my house and shot in my kitchen. They gave me the name Mama Sailene. I’m like your mom, you can come to me. I’m a mother to all. I encapsulate that feeling, you can come to me.

Besides EDIE, Collective now has other software it licenses to payers and accountable care organizations, but it does not charge post-acute operators, ambulatory providers and others who don't have risk. “Our model is that we license our software to those who could see economic benefit through improving coordination of their members, which makes sense,” he says. “Others may not benefit economically, so we don’t charge them.”

The company got its start in 2010. Baran, a Ph.D. student in engineering at the University of Wisconsin at the time, was thinking about how to build apps to make life easier for physicians. He went to a Mayo Clinic Innovation Conference and saw Lyle Berkowitz, M.D., of Northwestern Medicine speaking. “Lyle happened to be speaking there on that very topic, coming at it from the physician perspective,” Baran recalls. “I realized this is exactly the person I need to work with. A few weeks later I drove to Chicago, met with him, and the rest is history. We started this company and have been going ever since.”
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.
