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.
“That was a major effort, but some of us had been data scientists before we were physicians, and so we parameterized all these calls. The first pneumonia care path was completed in about nine weeks. We’ve turned around and did a second care path, for sepsis, which is much harder, and we’ve done that in two weeks. We’ve finished sepsis and have moved on to total hip and total knee replacements. We have about 18 or 19 care paths that we’re going to be doing over the next 18 months,” he says.
Yes! Sister Sesh Sunday is a movement 100% connected to Ganja Goddess Getaway. It’s a way you can virtually connect to one another, especially after you’ve experienced a Ganja Goddess retreat. We’ve been through something wonderful together. We’ve made time to practice radical self-love. Not many people know what that feels like. Those skills are honed in for me. On Sunday, take a selfie and post it at 4:20. Tag #SisterSeshSunday and @ganjagoddessgetaway. That’s it. We’re virtually connecting to say we’re practicing radical self-love this week. We’re putting our intentions out to be our best self this week. We’ve got a whole tribe who can support you.
“Certainly, this is another year where machine learning is absolutely dominating the conversation,” said James Whitfill, M.D., CMO at Innovation Care Partners in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Monday. “In radiology, we continue to be aware of how the hype of machine learning is giving way to the reality; that it’s not a wholesale replacement of physicians. There have already been tremendous advances in, for example, interpreting chest x-rays; some of the work that Stanford’s done. They’ve got algorithms that can diagnose 15 different pathological findings. So there is true material advancement taking place.”
These guys rock! I have wanted to write them a review for a while and after my last delivery, i gotta do it. I ordered... read more before they opened and they still had my delivery at my door in 30 mins. The people are always friendly and happy to chat with me on the phone when I have questions or need advice. It's great to know there are people that genuinely care about their customers in the cannabis industry. read less
Health information exchange has made tremendous advancements, particularly in the last several years, in linking communities together to unify a care record. There’s a lot more work still to be done, but they’re making great strides. You have the networks like CommonWell and Carequality that are doing that with CCDs and certainly have ambitions to do more. You have platforms like Epic Care Everywhere that are, in some regards, even more advanced in how they link data from Point A to Point B and unify that into a single patient record.
“It turned out that little hospital was part of what would become Providence St. Joseph Health, the second-largest nonprofit health system in the country,” Klomp says. Eventually use of their Emergency Department Information Exchange (EDIE) solution started to spread across the state of Washington. The Washington State Health Care Authority reported that use of EDIE by hospital EDs had helped save the state $34 million in Medicaid spending and there was a 9.9 percent reduction in total Medicaid ED visits across the state. “That was big,” Klomp says. “There were compelling results around opioid utilization, in terms of visits resulting in opioid prescriptions and related deaths.”
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
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.
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. With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, CMT meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information. See More
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.”
Our objective is to connect healthcare at scale. Virginia is a perfect example. You have 130-some hospitals and health systems, hundreds of post-acute operators, and thousands of ambulatory providers across the state, along with Medicaid, Medicare, and commercial health plans. The state’s objective was not only to reach a level of interoperability in terms of data sharing, but even more so, to reach a level of collaboration to manage down medically unnecessary utilization, avoidable friction, or risk.
Cannabis reputedly helps unlock the creative parts of your brain. Put that theory to the test with a pot-friendly night of art at Puff, Pass and Paint. The $39 cost includes all art supplies and instruction. Attendees must bring their own cannabis, but smoking, edibles, and vaping are all encouraged as part of the creative process and the social experience. The Colorado-based company offers classes in six states and the District of Columbia. In Boston, they’re available one weekend per month, and the company hopes to launch a weekly schedule soon. During the two-hour class, the instructor provides an example of painting and teaches participants how to re-create the artwork. Attendees are urged to follow their THC-heightened inspiration wherever it leads, says national director Tyler Joyner.
Situations like these make Baumgartner stand out in a state packed with anonymous delivery services. Whatever condition or ailment you suffer from, Carla Baumgartner and her team of doctors and professionals will find a product to give you relief, thus improving the quality of your life. So many dispensaries in California only focus on the percent of THC in their products, rather than the quality and characteristics of the high certain strains and products give. At Ganja Runner, they carry strains developed to help people in need, like 2:1 CBD:THC flower. Recently, Hmbldt metered dose pens have become very popular due to their simplicity. “I love them [Hmbldt pens] because it’s easy to pick the right medicine. If you’re anxious, use the Calm pen… If you’re in pain, use Relief. The simplicity is what Ganja Runner is all about.”

The AI application uncovered relationships and patterns that physicians either would not have identified or would have taken much longer to identify, Sanders says. For instance, the analysis revealed that for patients with pneumonia and COPD, beginning nebulizer treatments early in their hospital stays improved outcomes tremendously, hospital leaders report.


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.

First time buying weed at a recreational dispensary. Honestly, I was a little bit nervous as I approached the security guards. However, they were friendly... read more and had good vibes, helped me out and told me where to go with a smile. The building was professional, well-kept, clean, and had interesting facts about their weed and what they sell. The staff were also very professional and friendly. Don't cry about the price, either, people. I've worked in the fields, growing acres of weed in 100+ degree weather. It takes time and hard effort to grow quality plants. If you want quality shit, you pay for it. This place has it. read less


Artificial intelligence solutions—and certainly, the promotion of such solutions—were everywhere this year at the RSNA Conference, held this week at Chicago’s vast McCormick Place, where nearly 49,000 attendees attended clinical education sessions, viewed nearly 700 vendor exhibits. And AI and machine learning promotions, and discussions were everywhere.
The state evaluated a number of different paths and vendors and ultimately partnered with us. In five months, we connected 100 percent of the state’s acute care hospitals. We brought on all of the managed Medicaid organizations. In the next wave, we’re onboarding skilled nursing facilities and non-Medicare and other ACOs. We’re beginning to bring on ambulatory providers as well.
The fast-growing pot industry not only raked in $2.7 billion in sales this last year, it’s also produced quite a few ganja-based startups. It’s legal to light up a bowl for recreation or medical reasons in 23 of these 50 United States now and soon as there’s a growing industry, there are technological innovations to support it. We’ve counted at least 8 on-demand delivery apps out there that will bring medicinal grade weed varietals right to your door.
With Vireo Health’s New York medical marijuana delivery service, we aim to make medical marijuana more accessible to those who can’t visit one of our dispensaries, or who desire the convenience of home delivery. We currently offer our specialized cannabis home delivery service in New York City, Westchester, Rockland, Nassau, and parts of Suffolk County. You’ll receive the same high-quality cannabis products available in our New York dispensaries, right at your home. That’s just one way that Vireo Health is improving the medical marijuana system in New York.
Klomp, who helped out with strategy while working in private equity at Bain Capital in Boston, quit in 2014 to join Collective Medical. And last year, Benjamin Zaniello, who was a chief medical information officer at Providence Health & Services in Washington, joined as chief medical officer. Zaniello helped implement Collective Medical at Providence. He was impressed. “They did this alone for many years,” he says. “It wasn’t just a bunch of people with a power point and a dream, or someone from Google with a personal story in healthcare who wants to fix the system.”
“Certainly, this is another year where machine learning is absolutely dominating the conversation,” said James Whitfill, M.D., CMO at Innovation Care Partners in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Monday. “In radiology, we continue to be aware of how the hype of machine learning is giving way to the reality; that it’s not a wholesale replacement of physicians. There have already been tremendous advances in, for example, interpreting chest x-rays; some of the work that Stanford’s done. They’ve got algorithms that can diagnose 15 different pathological findings. So there is true material advancement taking place.”

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.

The AI tools from Ayasdi revealed new, improved care pathways for pneumonia after analyzing thousands of patient records from the hospital and identifying the commonalities between those with the best outcomes. The application uses unsupervised machine learning and supervised prediction to optimally align the sequence and timing of care with the goal of optimizing for patient outcomes, cost, readmissions, mortality rate, provider adherence, and other variables.
Collective Medical addresses those challenges by mining data universally available in all EHRs and filtering those data, displaying directly within a clinician’s workflow only what is relevant to a particular care decision. Furthermore, Collective immediately alerts a patient’s entire care team when an event, such as an ER admission, occurs, thereby accelerating care coordination.
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.
