One reason may be that your heart helps you live, by moving ~5 liters (1.3 gallons) of blood through almost 100,000 kilometers (62,000 miles) of blood vessels every single minute! It has to do this all day, everyday, without ever taking a vacation! Now that is true love. Learn about how the heart works, how blood flows through the heart, where the blood goes after it leaves the heart, and what your heart is doing when it makes the sound “Lub Dub.” About Khan Academy: Khan Academy is a nonprofit with a mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.

Health Planning & Management Community Medicine
This is an animated video lecture on the chapter "HEALTH PLANNING & MANAGEMENT" from the PARK textbook of COMMUNITY Medicine... Hi..........welcome to abmbbs......today's topic is “HEALTH PLANNING & MANAGEMENT”.....this video is based on the HEALTH PLANNING chapter from the PARK textbook of Community Medicine....in the 1st part of the video I would be talking about Health Planning......and.....in the 2nd part, I will briefly discuss... the important Health committees given in the textbook......so.....1st tell me the difference between objective....target....& goal.... objective is the planned endpoint of all activities....it is either achieved or not achieved.....it is precise.... target ….is... a discrete activity which gives us an idea about the degree of achievement...........targets are concerned with the factors involved in the problem....whereas..... objective is concerned directly with the problem in itself.... for example....when I say we will publish a 100 hundred videos by December 2017....it is a target...bcz ..it is concerned with the factors involved with the problem....but.. when I say.... we will achieve a 1000 subscribers by December 2017....it is an objective.....bcz it is concerned with the problem in itself... finally...a goal...is the ultimate desired state towards which all our efforts are directed..it is not bound by time or resources....it is our ultimate destination.. Next we come to plan....a plan is a blueprint for taking action...it prevents wastage of resources & helps develop the best course of action. Next we come to the topic of Planning cycle....it tells us the sequence of steps needed to be taken whenever we are faced with any health situation in a community...at first, we have to analyze the health situation...next , we need to establish the goals & objectives...then, we need to assess the resources & fix priorities...next, we need to write up an effective plan.....&.... skillfully implement it...finally, we need to monitor our plan carefully... & evauate it from time to time..... Next we come to an important question which is often asked in the exams....What is the difference between cost benefit analysis & cost effective analysis?? In cost benefit analysis , benefits are analyzed based on monetary terms......example plan A costs Rs 1000 whereas plan B costs Rs 1500....so plan A is better because it is cheaper... whereas....in cost effective analysis.... benefits are analyzed based on terms of results achieved....example number of lives saved or number of disease free days.... example plan A saves 100 lives whereas plan B saves 50 lives....so plan A is better because it saves more lives. This bring us to the end of the 1st part of the video.....now coming to the diffrnt health committees.... The first committee that you should be knowing about is the BHORE committee....it was also known as the HEALTH SURVEY & DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE....it propagated the idea of social physicians...these people were given a short 3 months training in preventive & social medicine...& they would be allowed to treat minor illnesses in the society...it proposed 2 plans.....a short term plan...& ….a long term plan....according to the the short term plan there would be 1 PHC per 40 thousand patients...& it would be 30 bedded......while...according to the long term plan....there would be 1 PHC per 10 to 20 thousand patients...& it would be 75 bedded....this was what was known as the 3 million plan... Next came the MUDALIAR committee which was also known as …..the Health Survey & Planning Committee...now if you notice....planning starts with “P”..,.& Mudaliar starts with “M”....so we get a bit of a pneumonic here......also dont confuse it with the BHORE committee because that was HEALTH SURVEY & DEVELOPMENT committee....The mudaliar committee gave the concept of ALL INDIA HEALTH SERVICE Next there was the CHADAH committee which proposed the idea of BASIC HEALTH WORKER The KARTAR SINGH committee which gave the idea of Male or female Health Worker There was the JUNGALWALLA committee....which was also called “ COMMITTEE on INTEGRATION of HEALTH SCIENCES “.....now if you notice carefully....I & J look remarkably similar....ha..ha..ha.....so there's another pneumonic for you....& in case you are wondering why such a weird name?.....Jungalwalla....then remember its because this committee proposed the idea of banning private practise... Finally we come to the SRINIVASTAVA committee.....everything about this committee was about health education....it was also called THE GROUP ON MEDICAL EDUCATION & SUPPORT MANPOWER...it proposed the REORIENTATION OF MEDICAL EDUCATION scheme...or the ROME scheme.....notice the under lying theme here?...its all about medical education....This committee also gave the Village Health Guide scheme....& gave the concept of 3 tier village

How Health Insurance Works
When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible? Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of. Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges. Deductibles: Some plans include a deductible, which typically refers to the amount of money you must pay each year before your health insurance plan starts to pay for covered medical expenses. Coinsurance: Some plans include coinsurance. Coinsurance is a cost sharing requirement that makes you responsible for paying a certain percentage of any costs. The insurance company pays the remaining percentage of the covered medical expenses after your insurance deductible is met. Out-of-pocket limit: Some plans include an out-of-pocket limit. Typically, the out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you will pay out of your own pocket for covered medical expenses in a given year. The out-of-pocket limit typically includes deductibles and coinsurance. But, out-of-pocket limits don't typically apply to co-payments. Lifetime maximum: Most plans include a lifetime maximum. Typically the lifetime maximum is the amount your insurance plan will pay for covered medical expenses in the course of your lifetime. Exclusions & Limitations: Most health insurance carriers disclose exclusions & limitations of their plans. It is always a good idea to know what benefits are limited and which services are excluded on your plan. You will be obligated to pay for 100% of services that are excluded on your policy. Beginning September 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (health care reform) begins to phase out annual dollar limits. Starting on September 23, 2012, annual limits on health insurance plans must be at least $2 million. By 2014 no new health insurance plan will be permitted to have an annual dollar limit on most covered benefits. Some health insurance plans purchased before March 23, 2010 have what is called "grandfathered status." Health Insurance Plans with Grandfathered status are exempt from several changes required by health care reform including this phase out of annual limits on health coverage. If you purchased your health insurance policy after March 23, 2010 and you're due for a routine preventive care screening like a mammogram or colonoscopy, you may be able to receive that preventive care screening without making a co-payment. You can talk to your insurer or your licensed eHealthInsurance agent if you need help determining whether or not you qualify for a screening without a co-payment. There are five important changes that occurred with individual and family health insurance policies on September 23, 2010. Those changes are: 1. Added protection from rate increases: Insurance companies will need to publically disclose any rate increases and provide justification before raising your monthly premiums. 2. Added protection from having insurance canceled: An insurance company cannot cancel your policy except in cases of intentional misrepresentations or fraud. 3. Coverage for preventive care: Certain recommended preventive services, immunizations, and screenings will be covered with no cost sharing requirement. 4. No lifetime maximums on health coverage: No lifetime limits on the dollar value of those health benefits deemed to be essential by the Department of Health and Human Services. 5. No pre-existing condition exclusions for children: If you have children under the age of 19 with pre-existing medical conditions, their application for health insurance cannot be declined due to a pre-existing medical condition. In some states a child may need to wait for the state's open-enrollment period before their application will be approved.

What is Primary Health Care ( PHC )?
This is an animated video lecture on PRIMARY HEALTH CARE based on the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE. Hey guys.......welcome to abmbbs.....todays topic is PRIMARY HEALTH CARE.....now this is a topic which is quite complicated in the PARK TEXTBOOK but in this video we have condensed the chapter & given only the must know points. First up...what is the definition of Primary Health Care?? Primary Health Care is the essential health care made universally accessible to individuals & acceptable to them , through their full participation & at a cost the country & community can afford. Now, the definition in itself is pretty complicated & is bound to make you nauseous. But if you break it down to just the main points then it gets pretty simple..........Remember that Primary Health Care consists only of the bare essentials of our health care needs.It is the bare minimum which needs to be given in any medical condition.........….Secondly Primary Health Care must be accessible to the people to whom it is being given.A big tertiary care hospital located 20kms away from the patients home cannot be considered as Primary Health Care............Thirdly the Primary Health Care that is given must be acceptable to the patients.A rectal exam or a colonoscopy might not be acceptable to the majority of the population & hence should not be considered as Primary Health Care..............The community to whom the Primary Health Care is being given must actively take part in the process.Without their full participation Primary Health Care cannot be truly given.............................Finally,the healthcare that is given in Primary Health Care must be in accordance to the economic condition of the country. Next we come to the Principles of Primary Health Care...........Number 1 is Equitable Distribution.......the majority of the healthcare services in India are concentrated in the towns & cities.... whereas the rural areas which need healthcare services more hardly have any.....Primary Health Care aims to redress this imbalance by focussing on the rural areas & bringing these services as close to people's home as possible. Number 2 is Community Participation …....As mentioned earlier, without the full participation of the local population, discharging healthcare needs is not possible...So Government of India is training village health guides & local dais from the local community itself.....these people, being localites, can overcome the cultural & communication barriers more easily. Number 3 is Intersectoral Coordination...Government of India has realised that Primary Health Care cannot be provided by the healthcare sector alone.The different wings of the government must come together & work in an integrated fashion. Number 4 is Appropriate Technology.... Now it goes without saying that the government spending on healthcare is extremely low & our our public healthcare institutions do not have the money for doing costly diagnostic tests & treatments...So Primary Health Care in India must rely on low budget technologies..One such technology is ORS...it is a low cost treatment for diarrhoea & dehydration..it can be stored anywhere & hardly has any side effects. Next we come to the levels of Primary Health Care....First is the Primary level...it is the first level of contact between the healthcare setup & the patient.It includes Subcentre &....Primary Health Centre. The secondary level or the 1st referral level is the Community health centre. Finally comes the Tertiary level which is the 2nd referral level.It includes Medical colleges & hospitals. So......now lets talk about Subcentre in detail....this one...It is the most peripheral & 1st contact point between the healthcare facility & the patient.It has 3 employees.....the health worker male, the health worker female & voluntary worker.Also the ministry of health & family welfare provides 100% funding for subcentres. Guys....thank you for watching this video...Please do not forget to like , share & subscribe if you like our work....the abmbbs community is growing at a phenominal rate & we are truly grateful to you. We believe that medical education should be fun & free for everyone.......Bubyeeee......& happy learning..

Healthcare in Germany
The last international health care system we covered – Singapore – got a great response from all of you. This week. We head back to Europe. Specifically, we're going to Germany. Their universal health care system is based on the principles of Bismark, which say that the state should provide only for those unable to provide for themselves. It's a private insurance system, and it's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. Those of you who want to read more and see references can go here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/?p=57058 Additionally, Aaron's new book is out! Please consider buying a copy.

Why Are American Health Care Costs So High?
In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.) For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-makes-the-us-health-care-system-so-expensive-introduction/ The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the US: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/~/media/Files/Publications/Issue%20Brief/2012/May/1595_Squires_explaining_high_hlt_care_spending_intl_brief.pdf Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/health/colonoscopies-explain-why-us-leads-the-world-in-health-expenditures.html?pagewanted=all This is the first part in what will be a periodic series on health care costs and reforms leading up to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in 2014.

http://pavilionusa.com 314-880-6100 Frequently Asked Questions regarding Health Management Services Organizations: What is a Management Services Organization (MSO)? 1. For those who are not familiar with the term, can you please define what exactly a Management Services Organization is? 2. What is the scope of services generally offered through a MSO? 3. What are the primary reasons a medical practice would utilize a MSO such as Pavilion Services? (To Increase revenue and decrease expenses) 4. What are the benefits to the client when they outsource medical practice business functions? 5. How does a physician practice or organization engage your services? 6. What costs/ fees are associated with utilizing your services? 7. Are your services centered upon a contractual time frame or project based? 8. How do you advocate utilizing an MSO for a small practice that may have limited staff resources to dedicate to central business office functions? A healthcare Management Services Organization MSO is an organization owned by a group of physicians, a physician hospital joint venture, or investors in conjunction with physicians. MSOs generally provide practice management and administrative support services to individual physicians and group practices. One purpose of MSOs is to relieve physicians of non-medical business functions so that they can concentrate on the clinical aspects of their practice. Because MSOs purchase their services as a group instead of individually, they can generally achieve economies of scale. These cost savings may be passed on to physicians, who may use this cost advantage when negotiating with health plans and healthcare purchasers. In other cases, MSOs purchase the tangible assets, such as buildings, equipment, and supplies, of their client physicians and lease these assets back to the physicians. In these situations, the physicians continue to own their own medical records and health plan contracts and continue to practice in their own offices. MSOs have been able to develop discounted outsourced billing, malpractice discounts, discounted equipment leasing, shared staffing and benefits, and EMR. In recent situations we have seen the core MSO operate as a "group practice without walls". The advantage is to develop clinical guidelines and care standards for the practices, thereby meeting clinical integration definitions, and also being able to harvest a shares savings relationship with third party payers, including insurance companies and employers Management Services Organization MSO St Louis

Safely Streamlining Healthcare Policy Management using Ideas from SNLP | DataEngConf SF '18
Don’t miss the next DataEngConf in Barcelona: https://dataeng.co/2O0ZUq7 Download Slides: https://dataeng.co/2tuP2bg ABOUT THE TALK: The administration of medical health plans requires policy definitions that are highly complex with legal, ethical, clinical, and financial considerations. Managing and updating these policies therefore requires significant subject matter expertise, and balancing these considerations makes it difficult to make updates that satisfy all of the constraints. This talk focuses on bringing concepts from computing and language processing such as the use of custom lexers/parsers and git-integration to streamline policy management. The policy representation and translation problem is handled using a structured natural language programming (SNLP) approach which translates from a policy language usable by a healthcare administrator into a semantic serialized object. This makes it possible to build a configuration management framework for policy management that is equivalent to “safe” policy management in mission-critical regulated industries such as developing software requirements for nuclear power systems. ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: Asif is Director of Data Science at Collective Health, a company focused on building a workforce management platform for the $1.2 trillion employer healthcare economy. He has worked in inference and control of complex systems in a number of domains including aero-defense, DNA sequencing, and digital health, and has published on these topics in artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, and controls conferences. He holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and a BS in Engineering and Applied Science from Caltech. Sergio is a Staff Data Scientist at Collective Health, where his areas of focus are medical claims adjudication, insurance plan analysis, and automated decision-making. Sergio has a Master’s Degree in Management Science & Engineering from Stanford, and his tech industry experience spans fields such as machine learning, natural language processing, digital logic design, reliability engineering, and the design of safety-critical control systems.

Care Management System
http://www.healthbi.com Care Management Software Patients over the age of 60 whom possess one of the six major chronic diseases are costing Medicare and private health insurance companies the most amount of money from hospital admissions and readmissions. The main contributing factor for this out-of-control spending is the lack of community care coordination. Once patients with chronic diseases are discharged from hospitals, they enter a fragmented and reactive clinical model that does neither engage nor support them throughout the continuum of care. The current solution to the problem is to wait until the patient reaches the critical point and use ER as patient's entry back to the system. Health Business Intelligence Corp has created an automated care coordination solution that enables healthcare payers and organizations to reduce costs by fully engaging patients and healthcare providers in managing the continuum of care. By utilizing the HealthCollaborate™ Care Coordination Information System, providers will increase performance and reduce penalties by identifying and navigating patients with the highest risk of hospital admissions and readmissions through the ambulatory phase of care. Our automated care coordination tool enables healthcare payers and providers to navigate, monitor and engage patients. HealthCollaborate™ creates a connected community of providers, patients and payers on a single secure platform and allows all stakeholders to communicate, collaborate and share information. HealthCollaborate™ delivers care management teams a fully automated care transition workflow that facilitates patient status alerts, appointment scheduling, patient appointment notifications, reminders and follow-ups, home monitoring and data analytics, medication reminders and information, patient education, electronic referrals, patient outreach, readmission reduction dashboard, medical record exchange and much more. The system is capable of creating interactive communication channels with patients via landline, SMS, secure email and phone app. By pushing information to and retrieving data from patients, HealthCollaborate™ keeps patients continuously in sync with their care plan and engaged with their healthcare providers. HealthCollaborate™ home monitoring system collects and analyzes data necessary to predict potential health problems before becoming acute.

Department of Managed Health Care - Rate Review
http://www.RateReview.DMHC.CA.gov - Here at the California Department of Managed Health Care we understand that health coverage can be a very significant expense and many Californians have questions. Questions like...How do health plans decide how much premium I should pay each month?", "Where is this money going?" and "How much is spent on medical costs?" Let's start with the first question about the rules health plans must follow when deciding how much premium you pay each month. The first factor is the level of benefits your choose, such as bronze, silver, gold or platinum. As the metal category increases in value, so does the percent of medical expenses that a health plan covers. This means the platinum plan covers the highest percentage of health care expenses at 90%. By law, the only factors that can influence premium are your age, whether you purchase family or individual coverage, and where you live in California. Income may also affect how much help you may receive purchasing coverage. Many individuals and families are eligible for lower costs or premium assistance if coverage is purchase through Covered California. Now, let's talk about the rules health plans must follow regarding how your premium dollar is spent: Health plans must use premium dollars to pay for health care services or medical claims, fund efforts to improve the quality of care and cover administrative costs and profit, if any. Medical costs are where the biggest part of your premium dollar must be spent Health plans must spend at least 80 to 85 percent of every dollar on medical cost such as hospitals, doctors, prescription drugs and other services for its members, as well as costs to improve the quality of care. Under the law, plans may use the remaining 15-20% of your premium dollar to pay administrative costs to keep health plans running and to generate profit, unless the health plan is not-for-profit. Administrative costs may include the cost of employees, such as salaries and benefits, as well as office and marketing expenses, taxes, and other fees. What does the Department of Managed Health Care do to keep health coverage more affordable? The Department of Managed Health Care reviews proposed health plan rates and asks health plans questions about their rate increase to make sure health plans are providing detailed information to the public to justify any rate increases. While the Department of Managed Health Care does not have the authority to deny rate increases, its rate review efforts hold health plans accountable, ensure you get value for your premium dollar, and saves Californians money. The Department of Managed Health Care's premium rate review program has saved Californians millions of dollars by negotiating lower premium increases or no premium increases when increased rates aren't justified.

Health plans working with providers are making healthcare better for patients and saving money.
See how Availity is making healthcare better at www.Availity.com Healthcare is a complex world of clinical and administrative data flowing between providers and health plans that most patients don’t realize. This video demonstrates how providers work with health plans, using data to improve patient care. For a patient, it often starts with using a health plan’s online or printed provider directory to find a physician. Once the appointment is made, the provider and health plan start exchanging data about the patient’s eligibility and benefits coverage, co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles, and past healthcare encounters all before the office visit takes place. With an effective multi-payer platform for collaboration, providers and health plans can share information in real time – with consistent, user-friendly workflows that take advantage of best practices in application development and user interface design. So even though most providers work with more than a dozen payers, and health insurance plans have physician networks that may number in the hundreds, or even thousands, there’s only one login and one password to remember. That password delivers access to simple processes for referrals, authorizations, and claims – even claim status and remits can be tracked all in one place. In this introductory episode, Bill finds a new primary care provider (PCP) and goes for a routine physical. He’s in good health generally, and because his health plan was able to share information about his medical history directly with the PCP, the PCP was able to complete an updated HEDIS attestation and refer Bill to a specialist for a checkup on his chronic condition. The video shows how Bill’s PCP office helps him locate an in-network specialist that his health plan knows to have good outcomes for patients with similar conditions. Thanks to the data flowing through the health care system, the specialist is able to see Bill’s history of treatment and verify that there are no gaps in his care. Bill’s check-in, exam, and checkout all happen smoothly because the staff at the specialist’s office use a multi-payer portal that gives them easy access to his administrative and clinical data, in workflows that are designed to be efficient and simple to follow. Even collecting Bill’s co-pay is easy – and the office systems share data, so Bill doesn’t get a bill for the visit. Because the workflows are designed for administrative simplicity, the properly coded claim gets processed quickly, and the specialist is reimbursed in record time. Even better, Bill’s PCP and care team at the health plan get the specialist’s exam notes, diagnosis, and prescription overnight, again ensuring that there are no gaps in Bill’s care. Bill follows his doctors’ advice carefully, and decides that he needs a vacation – maybe rock climbing in the Grand Tetons? This trilogy of short videos highlights ways providers and health plans share administrative and clinical data to make health care more efficient and drive better outcomes. Watch all three parts to see how it works – and what happens when primary care physicians, specialists, and hospitals don’t collaborate effectively.

Payer vs. Provider? Engaging with Third Party Payers in the Transition to Value-Based Care

Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal, Editor-in-Chief, Kaiser Health News; Former Correspondent, The New York Times; Author, An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back, Twitter @RosenthalHealth In Conversation with Mark Zitter, Chair, the Zetema Project Elisabeth Rosenthal will reveal the dark details of the American health-care system. Breaking down the monolithic business into its individual industries—the hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and drug manufacturers—that together constitute our health-care system, Rosenthal will divulge a history of American medicine that’s never been told before. She will also tell patients exactly how they can fight back. After 22 years as a correspondent at The New York Times (where she covered a variety of beats from health care to environment), Rosenthal joined Kaiser Health News last September. She is a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Medical School and briefly practiced medicine in a New York City emergency room before converting to journalism.

GP Mental Health Care Plans
A Mental Health Care Plan is a structured plan for people with a diagnosed mental health disorder. If you have mental health issues, talk to your local GP about developing a plan for you. Your plan will identify what type of health care you need, and spell out what you and your doctor have agreed you are aiming to achieve. It also may refer you to local mental health services where a Medicare rebate may be offered.
