Fighting in northwest Pakistan may displace up to 90000 people – UN

The UN refugee agency today warned that military operations against insurgents in the north-west region of Pakistan known as Mohmand agency could displace up to 90,000 people by the end of February if the fighting intensifies.According to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which aims to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees worldwide, fighting has already displaced some 25,000 people over the past week.UNHCR has established two new camps, mainly to accommodate people who have been fleeing the Sagi and Dawezai areas of Mohmand agency since military operations intensified on 27 January. The agency said that many of those arriving at the camps have little more than the clothes on their backs, and winter clothes and shelter are urgently required.The two camps are the first to be established by UNHCR for conflict-displaced Pakistanis within the tribal areas of the north-west since military operations against insurgents began in 2008. In previous waves of conflict people fled to settled areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, seeking refuge in and around the city of Peshawar.UNHCR has also deployed engineers, field and protection staff to Ghalanai, the administrative capital of Mohmand agency, and helped authorities to set up camps at Nahqi and Danish Kol to the north and north-east of Ghalanai. Each registered family receives a tent and other relief supplies – these typically include sleeping mats, blankets and kitchen utensils, and warm clothes for children. People are also receiving hot meals and UNHCR is in discussions with the World Food Programme regarding the provision of food rations.“While UNHCR has set up these camps within Mohmand agency, we are also advocating that displaced people be allowed to move further afield to stay with relatives and friends in Peshawar or other settled areas,” UNHCR’s spokesperson, Adrian Edwards, said at a press briefing in Geneva. “We are urging authorities to ensure displaced people have freedom of movement and we have deployed staff to monitor the situation.”Mr. Edwards said UNHCR is also concerned at reports from people arriving at camps that some young and middle-aged men have had difficulty leaving the conflict zone and are urging authorities to ensure that any screening activities to identify militants do not prevent civilians from leaving the area for safety.Successive waves of conflict in Pakistan’s tribal areas mean that today there are around one million people displaced, including almost 140,000 people from Mohmand agency. Of these, most live among host communities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 4 February 2011The UN refugee agency today warned that military operations against insurgents in the north-west region of Pakistan known as Mohmand agency could displace up to 90,000 people by the end of February if the fighting intensifies. read more

Canadas new Viola Desmond 10 bill named international banknote of the year

HALIFAX — Canada’s new $10 bill featuring Nova Scotia human rights icon Viola Desmond has been named banknote of the year.The bill, which also features a map of Halifax’s historic north end as well as the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, was honoured in a vote by the International Bank Note Society.The society says in a news release that the Desmond bill was a favourite of its voting membership right from the start.The purple polymer bill was the first vertically oriented banknote issued in Canada. New $10 bill featuring Viola Desmond enters circulation Viola Desmond will be first woman other than the Queen featured on Canadian currency Bank of Canada releases short list of women who could be featured on next bank note Desmond is the first black person — and the first non-royal woman — on a regularly circulating Canadian banknote.The bill marks a growing recognition of Desmond’s refusal to leave the whites-only section of a Nova Scotia movie theatre on Nov. 8, 1946 — nearly a decade before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Alabama — and the seminal role it played in Canada’s civil rights movement.Desmond, a beautician and entrepreneur from north end Halifax who sold her own line of cosmetics, was headed to Sydney, N.S., when her car broke down. Stuck in New Glasgow overnight, she decided to watch a movie at the Roseland Theatre.The segregated theatre relegated black patrons to the balcony, while floor seating was reserved for whites. Desmond, who was shortsighted and could not see properly from the back, sat in the floor section and refused to leave.She was dragged out of the theatre by police, arrested, thrown in jail for 12 hours and fined.It would take 63 years for Nova Scotia to issue Desmond, who died in 1965, a posthumous apology and pardon.Desmond’s story went largely untold for a half-century, but in recent years she has been featured on a stamp, and her name graces a Halifax harbour ferry. A Toronto park and streets in Montreal and New Glasgow bear her name, and she was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2017.The bank note society also honoured notes from Switzerland, Norway, Russia and Solomon Islands.The society says 150 new banknotes were released in 2018, but only 10 per cent of them featured sufficiently new designs to be nominated. read more

Ban commends intensive diplomatic efforts to end Ukraine crisis urges respect for

A statement issued by his spokesperson said the Secretary-General has closely followed the intensive diplomatic efforts under way in Minsk, Belarus, over the past two days. The talks have resulted in a ceasefire and, reportedly a peace roadmap towards ending the Ukraine conflict.In that regard, Mr. Ban, according to the statement, expects that the commitments which have been made in Minsk will be respected by the parties. “He urges the parties concerned to ensure that a genuine and lasting cease-fire will commence on 15 February as agreed, paving the way for a broader political settlement of the conflict, based on the Minsk accords,” it adds. The United Nations stands ready to assist in any way deemed helpful, the statement continues, noting that the Organization will continue to monitor the human rights situation and deliver humanitarian support to those in need. “The Secretary-General joins the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany in reiterating full respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” the statement concludes.The Ukraine crisis began to deepen in late February 2014 when it evolved from an initial internal political crisis into violent clashes in parts of the country. It later reached full- scale conflict in the east. Despite an earlier Minsk cease-fire, the situation in Ukraine has since continuously deteriorated, with serious consequences for the country’s unity, territorial integrity and stability. Recent media reports have suggested a potential worsening of the situation amid claims of a massive recruitment campaign by anti-Government groups. read more

Dotting the i Isaiah Prince shedding criticism ahead of Fiesta Bowl

OSU sophomore offensive lineman Isaiah Prince (59) waits for the ball to snap during the first half of the Buckeyes game against Nebraska on Nov. 5. The Buckeyes won 62-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The spotlight can be an intimidating setting for a first-year starter, especially for a first-year starter at Ohio State. Redshirt freshman right tackle Isaiah Prince has melted a few times under the spotlight, most notably in the loss against Penn State and versus Michigan when the offensive line allowed six and eight sacks, respectively. Prince was responsible for several of those.With such a large fan base behind them, OSU players are often thrown into the line of fire with just one mistake. Redshirt junior guard Billy Price is no stranger to that and has coached Prince through his struggles this season.“Billy has been through it before with his criticism, especially after his game against Virginia Tech so he’s definitely been someone to guide me through all the criticism I’ve taken this year,” Prince said. “To be honest, I really don’t pay attention to criticism. The fans aren’t my coaches. They really don’t know what goes on between us so I don’t really pay attention.”Meyer said before the team left for Phoenix that Prince had been working harder in bowl practice than any player he has ever coached. For good reason, too.Per College Football Film Room, Prince has allowed 25 quarterback pressures combined in Wisconsin, Michigan and Penn State games. Clemson ranks fourth in the country with an average of 3.5 sacks per game. Tigers’ defensive lineman Christian Wilkins, who will line up across from Prince on Saturday, has excelled in his second year with the Tigers. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound sophomore was named a first-team Freshman All-American in 2015 and an Associated Press third-team All-American this season. Wilkins has registered 3.5 sacks through 13 games and leads the team with 12 tackles for loss.The OSU offensive line will likely see several different looks from the Clemson defensive front that has two freshmen and redshirt senior second-team All-American Carlos Watkins. Senior linebacker Ben Boulware and redshirt sophomore linebacker Kendall Joseph also have a knack for getting to the backfield, and Boulware rushes primarily on Prince’s side. He leads the team with 114 tackles, including nine tackles for loss and four sacks.“That’s just our DNA — tackles for loss, sacks, just getting after the quarterback,” Wilkins said. “We’ll just stay within our game and do what we do best.”OSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa is at the end of his first season with the Buckeye program, taking over for Ed Warinner after co-offensive coordinator became his sole responsibility. Prince said Studrawa’s coaching style differs from Warinner by the amount of time spent on technique. So, when Prince was putting in extra hours outside of the practice schedule, he was working on the fundamentals — footwork and hand placement.“You could have a really good play and look really good, but if the technique isn’t good, you’ll still get a minus,” Prince said. “It definitely helps us get better.”Studrawa said that Prince’s attention to detail and practice habits have significantly improved since OSU’s last game against Michigan on Nov. 26.“We’ve really studied the mistakes he’s made,” Studrawa said. “We’ve studied why they were made, and he’s put the time and effort into trying to improve the little things that can make him a better player.”One benefit Prince has in his development ahead of Saturday’s College Football Playoff semifinal is having the ability to face OSU’s defensive line in practice. Defensive ends like redshirt sophomore Sam Hubbard, redshirt junior Tyquan Lewis, junior Jalyn Holmes and freshman Nick Bosa have combined for 17.5 sacks this season, which makes Prince believe they’re the best unit in the country.For the past few weeks, Price has noticed Prince take accountability for his mistakes rather than “pointing the finger.” To Price, that is vital to the redshirt freshman’s development ahead of his biggest game of his young career.“They’re a really good football team, and their front-four is very good,” Prince said. “Definitely important to go out there and be nine (units) strong.” read more

Buckeyes go cold in nonconference clash with Kansas

There are cold streaks and then there’s what transpired with the Ohio State men’s basketball team against Kansas Saturday. Trailing by two at halftime, the No. 7 Buckeyes misfired their way out of contention, shooting just 25 percent from the field and 11 percent from the 3-point line in the second half, including a stretch of more than 10 minutes in which they didn’t make a field goal. “I asked Santa for Christmas to improve our jump shooting,” a frustrated Thad Matta said after the game. The result was a 74-66 loss to the No. 9 Jayhawks, the second defeat of the young season for OSU. The frigidity of the Buckeyes shooting did not affect Kansas’ Ben McLemore, who many project to be a lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. The Jayhawks’ star redshirt freshman described by Matta as “as good as any player in the country” scored 22 points and was one of four Jayhawks to reach double figures. When a jump shot from junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. ended another extended Buckeye dry spell in the game’s closing minutes, the sold-out crowd at the Schottenstein Center let out a sarcastic cheer that was more a release of frustration than a celebration. OSU, ranked the No. 4 team in the country before the season, has now lost both of its major non-conference tests, the first being a 73-68 defeat at Duke, leaving some to question how good the Buckeyes really are. With a consistent second scoring option behind junior forward Deshaun Thomas yet to emerge, Duke and Kansas focused their defense on Thomas and dared another Buckeye to score. “It was probably a good matchup for us to be able to put a guard on (Thomas) and then we doubled him on the post with Jeff (Withey),” said Kansas coach Bill Self. Thomas still led OSU in scoring with 16 points, but with Smith, junior guard Aaron Craft and sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross combining to shoot 6-27 from the floor for 17 points, Kansas was never forced to make an adjustment. “They were doubling (Thomas) 16 feet from the basket,” Matta said. “When that happens you got to break the dam by knocking some shots down so it makes them think, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t do that.’” A bright spot for the Buckeyes was Shannon Scott, who finished with a career high 15 points and added four assists. Scott entered the game with OSU trailing 11-6 early in the first half and immediately sparked his team. The sophomore guard drove to his right past two defenders and laid in a tough shot off the glass. He then stole the ensuing inbounds pass and was fouled going to the rim, making one of two free throws. Later in the half, Scott scored seven points in a 14-0 Buckeye run that saw the home team take its first lead of the game, 31-23. “I just wanted to come in there and push the pace,” said Scott. “They weren’t getting back on defense at first so I was able to come in there and do that, get easy layups for myself and my teammates.” OSU overcame a two-point halftime deficit to knot up the score at 45 with 13:31 left in the game. The crowd rose to its feet, but that’s when the Buckeyes, who shot 46 percent from behind the arc in the first half, started their shooting hibernation. OSU struggled to get to the rim and settled for 18 3-pointers in the second half, only making two. When sophomore forward Amir Williams banked in a layup with 8:14 left on the clock, it was OSU’s first made basket in more than 10 minutes. “There was one point in the second half where I turned to the bench and said, ‘Hey let’s call a play where we score,’” Matta said. The Jayhawks shot only two deep balls in the second half, instead forcing their way inside where they scored a total of 34 points compared to OSU’s 22. Of the eight Buckeyes to enter the game, only Williams – he was 2-3 from the field – shot better than 45 percent. “We had great looks, wide open looks. I trust my teammates,” Thomas said. “When they had good looks and they didn’t knock them down, I told them to keep shooting. They just weren’t falling.” The Buckeyes will hope their shooting improves before Big Ten play, which begins Jan. 2 against Nebraska, and will have three days off before preparing for their non-conference finale against Chicago State next Saturday. OSU’s record now stands at 9-2, but despite the pair of losses, the team maintains that teams like Kansas prepare their squad for challenges down the road. “We have two losses on the year,” Craft said. “Kansas and Duke are two of the best teams in the country. That’s not an excuse, we’re not backing down. We want to play teams like this and going into Big Ten season we have to know every game is going to be like this.” read more

Google Cr48 will be the first Chrome OS netbook

first_imgWe knew Google Chrome OS was on the way and recent rumors made it clear that there would be hardware associated with the launch. That hardware is the Google Cr-48 laptop, an all-black, function key-less, 12-inch computer that lacks any of the branding we’ve come to expect on a portable computer.Most of today’s news has focused on Chrome OS as well as on changes to Google’s Chrome browser, but the search giant pulled out some interesting hardware as well. Engadget reports that it will run a 12.1-inch display and pack both a full-sized keyboard and a plus-sized trackpad. It will have all the frills we’ve come to expect from netbooks, like a webcam, as well as some nice extras, like 802.11n WiFi instead of the wireless g generally seen. The Cr-48 will use flash storage and run for over 8 hours on its battery. The processor and memory specs have yet to be released, but they should prove to be quite interesting as they will give us some insight into the amount of performance the system has, as well as what Google deems necessary to power the OS.In case you’re wondering about the name, Cr-48 refers to an isotope of the element chromium (though you’ll probably see it spelled Cr48). It’s a pretty clever naming convention on Google’s part and, if nothing else, they’ll avoid any unnecessary lawsuits like when Google named their first phone the Nexus One.Before you pull out your credit card you should note that this device might never go on sale. Chrome OS is still in beta and this laptop was developed for Google to give out to testers. The company has launched a pilot program that any person or business in the US can sign up for. This will get you in a limited beta program where you’ll be able to use the notebook and send feedback back to the mothership.cr_48_google_01cr_48_google_01cr_48_09cr_48_08cr_48_07cr_48_06cr_48_05Images via Googlelast_img read more

How Ryanairs loudmouth approach helps them find fun irreverent and cheeky staff

first_imgHow Ryanair’s loudmouth approach helps them find ‘fun, irreverent and cheeky’ staff The HR department says the company’s colourful media profile acts as a sort of recruitment filter. Share7 Tweet Email4 Monday 6 Mar 2017, 7:44 AM By Fora Staff Short URL 17 Comments Mar 6th 2017, 7:44 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Take me to Fora 13,861 Views Get Fora’s NEW daily digest of the morning’s key business news: RYANAIR IS RENOWNED for its loudmouth, straight-talking antics, but it’s not just a ploy to drum up free publicity – it apparently helps them attract the right kind of employees too.That’s according to Darrell Hughes, the airline’s deputy human resources director, who said the company’s no nonsense image acts as a sort of recruitment filter.“It is good for us to have that visible symbol of our culture and values that’s out there,” he said.“It helps from a selection point of view because we’re such a well-known organisation that when people walk in the door … they have an impression of us – some good, some bad – but they’ve a good idea of what we’re all about.“You get this kind of self-selection when people are coming in for an interview.”He said the airline mainly looks for applicants that are “hard-working, dedicated, a little bit irreverent, cheeky and fun” – terms that Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary could be associated with due to his larger-than-life approach that garners media attention.However, it’s not just O’Leary that is known to speak his mind. Last year at a conference, the company’s chief technology officer let loose when he quipped that big data is “wank“.Ryanair’s marketing team has also leaned towards edgy ploys. Most recently, they took a swipe at Aer Lingus when two of its employees were suspected of facilitating the trafficking of illegal immigrants earlier this year. Source: RollingNews.ieTech environmentSpeaking last week at the Talent Summit in Dublin, Hughes also explained how three years ago, Ryanair adjusted its ‘company culture’ to accommodate its growing tech team.In 2014, the airline launched its Ryanair Labs tech division to improve the digital side of the business.This involved setting up a technology and innovation hub in Dublin to house staff who would work on Ryanair’s new app and other such projects.Hughes said the company recognised its traditional way of managing staff wasn’t going to cut it for the techies who were coming on board.“The culture (we have) is a fantastic way to run an airline. But when it comes to creativity, it can stifle creativity and long-term thinking sometimes.“We recognised that having that same culture of task-driven, rapid decision-making – where you’re told to do something on a Monday and it’s done by the Friday – wasn’t going to work in the (Ryanair Labs) kind of environment.”He said this is why the tech and innovation wing of the company has its own dedicated space to house more than 70 staff.“We put them in a physically separate space. It’s slightly different, a bit more creative, it has breakout areas, all that good stuff.“We recognise that was now a culture that we had to think carefully about. Those people still have tasks to do but they’re given an environment that allows a slightly different culture to develop.”He said the airline currently has over 14,000 staff based across 14 hubs across Europe.Written by Killian Woods and posted on Fora.ielast_img read more

Why Some Patients Getting Drugmakers Help Are Paying More

first_img Share Getty Images/Via NPRAs the price of specialty drugs continues to rise, some health plans are shifting more of the cost to patients.Since Kristen Catton started taking the drug Gilenya two years ago, she’s had only one minor relapse of her multiple sclerosis, following a bout of the flu.Thanks to the medicine, she says, she’s able to walk comfortably, see clearly and work part time as a nurse case manager at a hospital near her home in Columbus, Ohio. This is a big step forward; two drugs she previously tried failed to control her physical symptoms or prevent repeated flare-ups.The drug is expensive — about $90,000 a year. Novartis, the company that makes Gilenya, helps defray that cost for Catton and other patients by making their copayments directly to the patient’s health plan; Catton’s copay for the medicine is roughly $3,800 a month.Until recently those payments by the drug company helped Catton save money on her medical out-of-pocket expenses, because they counted toward her family’s $8,800 annual pharmacy deductible on their health plan.Courtesy of Kristen CattonHospital nurse Kristen Catton relies on medication to keep her multiple sclerosis in check. The drug’s price: $90,000 each year.But his year, Catton got a shock. Her health plan changed the way it handles Novartis’ payments, and the money no longer counts toward that deductible.Catton is one of a growing number of consumers taking expensive medicine who are discovering they are no longer insulated by copay assistance programs that used to help cover their costs.Through such programs, consumers typically have owed nothing or have had modest monthly copays for pricey drugs, thanks to a financial contribution by the drugmaker that chips away at the consumer’s deductible and out-of-pocket maximum limits until the health plan starts paying the whole tab.Under the copay accumulator programs introduced by some health plans in 2018, the process has changed.In Catton’s case the change meant that after she hit the drug manufacturer’s payment cap for the copay assistance in April, she’s had to pay the entire co-payment herself — roughly $3,800 — and will have to continue to pay it until her health plan’s pharmacy deductible is met.For May, Catton has put the $3,800 copay on a credit card. But, she says, her family can’t afford to pay nearly $9,000 a year out-of-pocket for the foreseeable future.“I’m talking to my doctor to see if I can I take it every other day,” she says. “I guess I’m winging it until I can figure out what to do.”Drug copay assistance programs have long been controversial. Proponents say that in an age of increasingly high deductibles and coinsurance charges, such help from the manufacturer is the only way some patients can afford crucial medications.But opponents to such assistance say the programs increase drug spending on expensive brand-name drugs by discouraging patients from using more cost-effective alternatives.That last argument misses an important point, according to Bari Talente, executive vice president for advocacy at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.“Generally the multiple sclerosis drugs are not substitutable,” she says. “Most have different mechanisms of action, different administration and different side effect profiles.” And generics, when they’re available, are pricey too — typically costing $60,000 or more annually, she says.Most annual copay assistance limits for MS drugs, if available, are between $9,000 and $12,000, Talente says.Some employers argue that the drug copayment programs are an attempt to circumvent their efforts to manage health care costs. There’s also the issue of fairness, they say.“From an employer perspective, everyone under the plan has to be treated the same,” says Brian Marcotte, president and CEO of the National Business Group on Health, which represents large employers.If someone needs medical care such as surgery, for example, that person doesn’t get help covering his deductible, he says.In an NBGH survey of about 140 multistate employers with at least 5,000 workers, 17 percent report they have a copay accumulator program in place this year, Marcotte says. Fifty-six percent say they’re considering them for 2019 or 2020.Marcotte says that if there is no other comparable drug available, drug copayment programs may have a role to play if they can be structured so that participating patients are paying some amount toward their deductible. But, he argues, assistance programs for drugs that are available from more than one source — such as a brand drug that is also available as a generic — shouldn’t be allowed.In 2016, 20 percent of prescriptions for brand-name drugs used a drug copay assistance coupon, according to an analysis by researchers at the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics. Among the top 200 drugs (based on spending) in 2014, the study found that 132 were brand-name drugs, and 90 of them offered copay coupons.Fifty-one percent of the drugs with copay coupons had no substitute at all, or only another brand drug as a close therapeutic substitute, the analysis found.Advocates for people with HIV and AIDS say copay accumulators are cropping up in their patients’ plans and beginning to cause patients trouble. Drugs to treat HIV typically don’t have generic alternatives.The biggest impact for the community their organizations serve may be for PrEP — a daily pill that helps prevent HIV infection, says Carl Schmid, deputy executive director at the AIDS Institute, an advocacy group. A 30-day supply of PrEP (brand-name Truvada) can cost nearly $2,000. Gilead, the drug’s manufacturer, offers a copay assistance program that covers up to $3,600 annually in copay assistance, with no limit on how much is paid per month.“They’re at risk for HIV, they know it and want to protect themselves,” Schmid says. “It’s a public health issue.”Earlier this month, the AIDS Institute was among 60 HIV organizations that sent letters to state attorneys general and insurance commissioners across the country asking them to investigate this practice, which has emerged in employer and marketplace plans this year.Compounding advocates’ concerns is the fact that these coverage changes are frequently not communicated clearly to patients, Schmid says. They are typically buried deep in the plan documents and don’t appear in the user-friendly summary of benefits and coverage that consumers receive from their health plan.“How is a patient to know?” Schmid asks. They learn of the change only when they get a big bill midway through the year. “And then they’re stuck.”Kaiser Health News, a nonprofit news service covering health issues, is an editorially independent program of the Kaiser Family Foundation and is not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.

FMV CultClassic Night Trap Coming to PS4 and Xbox One This Spring

first_img PlayStation 4 Becomes Fastest Console to Sell 100 Million‘Death Stranding’ Is Your PlayStation 4 Holiday Exclusive Stay on target Consider this a story I didn’t think I’d ever be writing. Developer Screaming Villains will soon release a 25th-anniversary edition of the FMV cult-classic, Night Trap. Yes, the Notorious Sega CD game that starred Dana Plato will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Spring.For those who may not remember, Night Trap was essentially a made-for-TV horror movie disguised as a video game. Players had to trap vampires that were chasing teenage girls inside of a house. The game was highly controversial when it first came out and was one of the reasons we now have the ESRB. It’s also considered one of the corniest games of all time because of the terrible acting. Despite all of that, it still has a devoted fan base.Limited Run Games, who is responsible for creating physical versions of digital PlayStation Vita titles, will be releasing the PS4 edition of Night Trap on disk. There will be three different covers; each resembling one of the three Sega CD releases. As you have no doubt surmised, there will only be a limited amount of physical Night Trap disks produced.AdChoices广告center_img Will Night Trap cause the same amount of controversy now as it did back in the day? It’s unlikely, but the think-pieces and editorials this re-release will inspire should be interesting. Night Trap was never one of the best games out there, but it is a historically significant title regardless. And who knows, now that it will be on current-day systems, it may find an entirely new audience. Let’s just hope it doesn’t usher in a new era of FMV games. We don’t need any more of those.As a fun bonus, video game journalist Chris Scullion interviewed the remaster’s developer, Tyler Hogle. The two speak for nearly an hour about how Night Trap was updated for 2017. The interview was recorded last month but was posted today to coincide with the announcement. You can hear the interview by following this link.last_img read more

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  Pueblo Radiology Associates utilizes a universal PACS that saves the facility the expense of having to add additional radiologists.The processes within a radiology practice are numerous and complex, and many of them can require extended periods of time. There is the time that is needed to wait for imaging orders — more time if written orders are illegible and require additional correspondence between the referring physician and radiologist. Time is also lost waiting for films and cassettes to be received and uploaded to the picture archive and communications system (PACS), and still more time is needed for second opinions if required. Collectively, the time that these individual processes take often leads to longer turnaround time, which can result in patient anxiety, medical error and increased medical costs. Due to these reasons and the implementation of Stage 2 meaningful use (MU) criteria, which bases medical reimbursements on the efficiency and accuracy of care, imaging centers around the country are looking to find ways to cut time, and increase the accuracy and standard of medial care. Wireless DR In order to help imaging centers comply with the efficiency requirements that Stage 2 MU presents, manufacturers have developed equipment to streamline imaging. One technology that has made a big difference is the wireless X-ray system, which allows faster image access. With wireless imaging systems, radiology technicians are also able to move detectors between different rooms and systems. Manufacturers including Carestream and GE offer wireless solutions for their digital radiography (DR) X-ray systems. Bryan Medical Center in Lincoln, Neb., has been able to regain significant time by installing wireless DR systems. Within its two hospitals and two outpatient imaging centers, the center conducts a total of 73,000 X-ray exams and 155,000 radiology exams, according to Sharon Harms, director of radiology. The center used computed radiography (CR) systems in 2011; however, staff discovered they could save time by replacing CR systems with wireless DR systems. According to Harms, “Today 90 percent of X-ray exams are conducted using DR systems that offer image access on the console in about five seconds and immediate transmission to the PACS for reading by radiologists and access by physicians.” Employing wireless Carestream DR systems has also helped the Bryan Medical Center boost staff productivity because it no longer needed to transport or process CR cassettes. The wireless DR systems are one part of the solution that has helped the medical center reduce average report turnaround time from almost 24 hours to less than 45 minutes.Unified PACS SystemsOther areas within radiology practices that can exhaust time include second opinions, consultations and multiple interpretations. The correspondence needed for these processes often prevents radiologists from getting reports back to physicians. In radiology practices that have multiple radiologists, cover wide service areas and perform imaging for several different facilities, if a radiologist has to send out a report to a colleague for consultation, depending on schedules and the business, turnaround time for that exam can nearly double. One simple way to streamline this is to utilize a unified PACS system that allows radiologists and other medical professionals universal access to images despite location. This was the approach that was used in the southern division of Pueblo Radiology Associates in California. “We have one PACS system across all of our enterprise and we can work across the network. So, I happen to be sitting in Santa Barbara today and I can either primarily read, I can consult or I can ask others to consult on my cases regardless of where I’m sitting,” said Lawrence Harter, M.D., FACR, president of Pueblo Radiology Associates Inc. The company deployed a unified PACS system across six hospitals and seven outpatient imaging facilities to become as efficient as possible.Having a unified PACS allows practices to more effectively utilize their existing workforce during times when certain offices are less busy. Because everyone has access to work lists and patient images, Harter said that radiologists who are less busy can get on the work list and help to interpret exams. “What that’s allowed us to do is to manage our manpower a little bit better. So for instance the facility I’m in now really requires four radiologists a day to do the work, but we only staff it with three because we’ve got people who are off-site at less busy places helping us with our workflow. It saves us the expense of having to add another radiologist.” A universal PACS also limits delays between second opinions and other processes that require radiologists to either send or receive images from colleagues before an interpretation is made. “If someone has had an examination in another facility that we don’t operate in, we can still see it for direct comparison, so we don’t have delays in trying to get old films,” said Harter. And with the universal PACS, this can happen within a matter of seconds.Viewing and Storing Physician OrdersFor many imaging centers, the process of receiving imaging orders from referring physicians has sometimes proven to be unnecessarily time-consuming. Patients with imaging orders that are illegible require additional time for radiology technicians to contact the referring physician and get the correct order. To fix this seemingly simple issue, imaging centers have begun to employ databases that allow referring physicians to request orders electronically. These computerized physician order entry (CPOE) orders can then link to patient electronic health records, and radiology technicians can also view these electronic orders (EHRS), making verification of exams quick and easy. “When a physician orders an outpatient exam through our scheduling center, the order is electronically linked to the patient appointment in the scheduling system at the Bryan Medical Center,” explained Harms. When a patient comes to radiology, staff can quickly verify that the order is correct by viewing the appointment, which automatically links to the imaging order in the computer. Because all staff members have computers in their work areas, they can view changes and add-ons to the schedule immediately. The Bryan Medical Center can attest to the increased efficiency that switching from paper- to electronic-based physician orders has brought. “Previously, paper copies of orders were faxed to our departments and had to be distributed to various modalities,” Harms said. “If a paper copy was missing, this resulted in phone calls to track it down. Now the electronic orders are reliable and quick to use.”Identifying BottlenecksAlthough many centers want to make changes to comply with Stage 2 MU criteria, an in-depth review of processes already in place is necessary before radiology practices can make changes to increase workflow efficiency. For some practices, identifying the areas where radiologists and technicians can become more efficient will happen over time and solutions will be created and implemented organically as a response. This was the case for Pueblo Radiology Associates. “It grew slowly. It started with the PACS system at one facility,” recalled Harter. “As each hospital and imaging center added on, we felt that having a unified system was better for patient care and staff understanding. It allowed more ease of use, and there was uniformity for training.”For other practices, this internal analysis will require a more proactive approach. Harms says that annually the Bryan Medical Center administration conducts and reviews in detail a Press Ganey survey, which identifies physician satisfaction. The center also records productivity data from two sources — Truven ActionOI benchmarking and an internal productivity system that the finance department uses to track productivity. This information, which includes hours worked per procedure and/or hours worked per ambulatory procedure codes (APC) relative weight, is collected on an ongoing basis and reviewed biweekly, Harms explained. The data from these sources — along with a departmental quality control committee, interdisciplinary lean teams and departmental management teams to review physician satisfaction data, staff productivity data, expense reports and other factors that highlight areas of inefficiency in radiology workflow — help the center identify areas of improvement and implement lean processes early on.   FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: New Advances in CT Imaging Technology Cynthia McColl… read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
