Who is Pushing for Electronic Health Records and Who Isn't?

Since the federal government is putting huge sums of money into the expansion of the use of electronic health records in the United States it seems like doctors would be jumping on the bandwagon. But this isn't the case although the monetary incentives are great and the cost has been one of the reasons that more haven't already adopted this record keeping and maintaining system.The costs that would be abated by the stimulus money include upgrading computers, new software, and employing technicians. But it looks like many doctors think it is a good idea on paper or in theory, but taking the time out of their busy schedules to learn how-to and then to input the information doesn't appeal to some doctors because they would not see the number of patients as usual and would lose money. Jason Millman reported this response in Hartford Business Journal Online in his article Even With Incentives, Doctors Resist Electronic Records.

Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

How many times have you heard the phrase: "You are What You Eat?" as the chances are good you have heard it at least once a week for the past 15 years but it is very true as renowned cardiologist Dr. William Davis demonstrates.Dr. Davis' central thesis is this: the agribusiness has changed wheat so much in the last 20 years that wheat is no longer the "good grain" that it once was (the line from "America" which says "... amber waves of grain" refers to the old-fashioned four-foot variety of non-enhanced grain from which we made our bread for the last several millennia).In the last half-century or so that has changed as agribusiness has taken over the "development" of wheat to bring higher yields. By playing with the chemistry of the wheat plant, the size is about half of what it was and its nutritional value is nowhere near as good as one might think.Today, wheat is a storehouse of sugar and other ingredients that give Americans everything from what Dr. Davis terms "wheat belly." It's also not the result of a...

 


Interesting Starts In Pharmaceutical Sales Careers

Here's a very interesting case especially if you are interested in pharmaceutical sales careers. Dr. W. was a senior physician who had a huge practice which consisted mainly of elderly patients. So when a new drug which protected elderly patients from stomach ulcers was launched, he quickly put the drug to the test by putting himself and three of his best friends on it since they were all in the same age group that was prone to stomach ulcers.Unfortunately, this drug was initially launched with a four times per day dosing schedule and at this dosage, a significant percentage of patients experienced a very nasty side effect, namely diarrhea. The next day after taking the drug, Dr. W. and his three buddies went out to play their favorite game which was golf. At the ninth hole, all four men suddenly experienced the diarrhea side effect from taking the drug. Their golf game was certainly cut short.When the new pharmaceutical sales rep responsible for promoting this drug visited Dr. W., the doctor told the hi...
