To help fund Collective Medical, Green and van den Akker entered business plan competitions, with the motto “Save lives through better technology in healthcare,” and won a total of $15,000. “We didn’t try to raise money, we were more focused on making sure we can drive value for hospitals,” says van den Akker, who developed the technology using HL7 standards to connect different electronic health records. Green tried to drum up more customers, while holding jobs at National Instruments and later Dell in Austin, Texas.
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.

Mulvey’s standard class costs $29 and lasts 90 minutes, about 50 of which is spent stretching and posing. Before instruction begins, students are given time to mingle, offered hemp tea, and encouraged to smoke and share weed. A break during class allows more socializing and consumption. The communal periods are essential to her goal of helping cannabis lovers connect without judgment or stigma, Mulvey says. “My mission is to bring it to the community and remove the shame.”
Interoperability is the base layer. Then, how do we use data to coordinate human behavior? We make it easier for them by meeting them in their workflow, not making them go look up information. They can understand which of their patients are at a place of need and coordinate with others who can help meet the needs of that individual, to lift them up and catch them before they fall.

Anderson, who’s been practicing emergency medicine for 30 years, relies on Collective Medical for 40% of his patients. Recently, a 25-year-old woman showed up in the ER at Auburn Medical Center with abdominal pain. At check-in, an alert popped up next to her name. It was her fifth visit in a year. Her chart showed that she had also been to St. Francis Hospital, Highline Medical Center and Valley Medical Center—all within a 20-mile radius of Auburn. Her prescription drug history revealed that six doctors had ordered narcotics. Anderson contacted her primary care doctor, who was unaware of her ER visits, for a next day appointment, and started her on a treatment for opioid dependence.

Workshops are generally a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on demonstrations, so students should be prepared to get their hands dirty — literally. Mixing soil is a key element of the Methods of Cultivation class. Smoking is prohibited in the classroom, though vape pens are allowed. Still, the focus is on instruction rather than consumption, the owners say.

The solution has been supporting the integration of behavioral and physical health in states like Washington, Oregon and California for several years and we’re excited to see how it can impact patient outcomes in South Carolina.”
While the city Excise department has targeted the areas such as Dhoolpet, Mehedipatnam, Nanakramguda, etc., which are prone to ganja peddling, peddlers have found their ways to deliver the drug to specific location with the help of a phone call. Akhil (20) (name changed), a student from a reputed engineering college in the city, was addicted to the drug and is currently undergoing a de-addiction therapy.
The original text amendment included commercial operations open to both medical and recreational marijuana. After a tense debate from City Council and passionate testimonies from the public, City Council Member Steve Brandau motioned to revise the amendment to limit all commercial cannabis operations to that for medicinal purposes only, Garry Bredefeld seconded the motion. Council President, and co-sponsor of the amendment, Clint Olivier, declined the revision before ultimately voting ‘yes’ alongside the rest of the council.

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.

There continues to be growing interest, and also some hype, around AI tools, but Sanders notes that AI and machine learning are simply another tool. “Historically, what we’ve done is that we had an idea of what we wanted to do, conducted a clinical trial and then proved or disproved the hypothesis, based on the data that we collected. We have a tool with AI which can basically show us relationships that we didn’t know even existed and answer questions that we didn’t know to ask. I think it’s going to open up a tremendous pathway in medicine for us to both reduce cost, improve care and really take better care of our patients,” he says, adding, “When you can say that to physicians, they are on board. They respond to the data.”

I really do not understand why everyone is so butt hurt by the customer service. They always reply to my emails. They answer my support tickets. Does everyone on this review page expect that they will be perfect 100% of the time. No. No one on earth is. Give them a break. Can you see how many orders they are getting? Obviously they are busy. I have spent over $1000 on this website. The only hiccup they have made was with my December, 5 order. They sent me a email and are replacing my order and I might still receive my original order. That is fine with me. Its Christmas, quit being cry babies. Thank you Jay and everyone on the Ganja team for all that you do for me and everyone else. Keep up the good work.
The world is focused on these opportunities for good reason, but it’s a necessary but insufficient condition of driving coordination across an otherwise highly fragmented set of providers in a landscape. We have data silos and we need to unify those. We should have a single patient record that isn’t replicated with duplicative tests or because a patient goes from one site of care to another. However, it’s highly unlikely that the entirety of the country is going to be comprised of organizations like Kaiser, Intermountain, and Geisinger. Even those organizations — and I can say this because Kaiser and Intermountain are among the owners of our company — still have affiliated providers that they don’t own and that aren’t on their same record of care. They still require collaboration and coordination across those disparate providers.
“We had a guillotine over our head,” says Stephen Anderson, an emergency medicine doctor at MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, which operates eight hospitals in and around Tacoma and Spokane, Washington. Hospitals pleaded for their own solution. “[We said] instead of blocking access, let us coordinate care of high utilizers.” The governor gave them three months.
