Insider QA Cigna CEO seeks deeper push into patient health

Call Cigna a health insurer, and CEO David Cordani will try to correct you.He doesn’t consider the company a pharmacy benefit manager either, even though Cigna just spent roughly $52 billion on one of the country’s biggest prescription processors, Express Scripts.The 52-year-old executive sees Cigna as a “health service company.” That bulky label reflects insurers’ growing interest in being involved in more than just waiting to handle bills from a claim after people get sick.Cordani spoke recently with The Associated Press about this shift and other topics. The conversation has been edited for clarity and length.Q: One of the benefits from acquiring Express Scripts is more patient data. How will that affect a typical patient’s care?A: You could more effectively predict health issues before they transpire. You can predict in many cases a heart attack … a high-risk maternity event, and then seek to engage with the physician and with the individual to effect lifestyle, behaviour or in some cases augment that with medications.Q: You want to use this deal to expand what’s called value-based care, which shifts the financial focus to how a patient does instead of on what kind of treatment they receive. Why is this shift so important?A: Everybody benefits, starting with the consumer: Better quality, better service, better outcome, and the practicing physicians are rewarded more meaningfully. The combined company will be able to expand and deepen those relationships significantly. Those that are creating the most value get rewarded more, and the consumer benefits by getting more personalized, higher-quality care.Q: You talk about working with health coaches and case managers to help people. How would that work?A: It’s lifestyle and physical activity. Figuring out creative ways to get the right physical activity that works for somebody to give them cardiovascular health is a life-changing event. But it’s got to be done in a way that works based on an individual’s lifestyle as opposed to the old archaic ways of incenting a gym membership.Q: Is there a risk here of the insurer encroaching on the doctor’s turf, deciding what care is best for the patient?A: We don’t seek to own the physicians. Our number one strategic imperative is to be the undisputed partner of choice. While that risk exists, we need to acknowledge it but make sure our actions reinforce that we’re trying to lock arms and enable. In some of our larger collaborative relationships, we employ and pay for health advisers, health coaches, nurses and will embed them in the physician’s office at the discretion and direction of the physician. We don’t tell them they have to, we offer it as a service.___Follow Tom Murphy on Twitter: @thpmurphy .Tom Murphy, The Associated Press read more

UN envoy stresses need to tackle impunity in DR Congo

“We will not repeat the past mistakes, we believe that there should not be amnesty for those accused of having committed serious crimes, nor should they be integrated in the armed forces of the DRC,” the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General to the Great Lakes Region, Mary Robinson, told reporters in the eastern city of Goma on Friday.“The international community represented here must contemplate a holistic approach of resolving this conflict, the military approach when necessary and the political approach that can yield a lasting and durable impact for the region.” Ms. Robinson was in Goma as part of a four-day tour of the region with the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in the DRC, Martin Kobler. Boubacar Diarra, Special Representative of the African Union; Koen Vervaeke, European Union Senior Coordinator for the Great Lakes region; and Russ Feingold, US Special Envoy for the African Great Lakes region and the DRC are also taking part in the tour.Mr. Kobler, who also heads the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO), expressed satisfaction at the decision by Heads of State at the Kampala talks in Uganda on Wednesday, to include MONUSCO as a key player in the Joint Verification Mechanism (JVM), which monitors the common borders of the 11 members of the International Conference for the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR).Mr. Kobler said this would enhance the mechanism’s ability to verify and be able to ascertain facts expeditiously.While in Goma, the envoys were briefed by MONUSCO’s Force Intervention Brigade. They also met with the Governor of North Kivu province, visited the Mugunga camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) on the outskirts of the city, and were briefed on humanitarian issues.At the conclusion of the visit, they departed Goma for the Rwandan capital of Kigali. The M23 – composed of soldiers who mutinied from the DRC national army in April – along with other armed groups, has clashed repeatedly with the DRC national forces (FARDC).In the past year, the fighting has displaced more than 100,000 people, exacerbating an ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region which includes 2.6 million IDPs and 6.4 million in need of food and emergency aid. read more

Richie Incognito Files NonInjury Grievance Against Dolphins

Photo by The Associated Press.Embattled offensive guard Richie Incognito has filed a non-injury grievance against his team, the Miami Dolphins.”The grievance challenges his suspension for conduct which was alleged to have occurred while he was with the club,” the NFL Players Association said in a statement. ”In the grievance, Incognito requests that the hearing be held on an expedited basis so that he can immediately resume playing for the team.”The NFL Players Association will continue to protect the rights of all players.”Incognito was suspended by Miami on Nov. 3 for misconduct related to inappropriate treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, including racial slurs in voice and text messages. Martin left the Dolphins last month, checked into a hospital briefly and has not returned to the team.The NFL is investigating whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin. Incognito has said the conduct was all part of the normal locker room environment.Incognito has missed one game, and the suspension by the team can last for four games. The Dolphins, who have not said how long Incognito is suspended, said they do not comment on grievances.Martin is scheduled to meet Friday with Ted Wells, the independent investigator hired by the NFL. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also plans to meet with Martin.A second-year pro, Martin left the team because of what his attorney has alleged was daily harassment by teammates, including Incognito.On Monday, Ross announced the formation of two committees to examine the Dolphins’ locker room culture. In recent days, players have been virtually unanimous in saying it doesn’t need to be changed. read more

Memory of former Buckeye Connor Senn lives on without Crew

For the first time in the 10-year history of the Ohio State men’s soccer team’s annual Connor Senn Memorial Match, the Columbus Crew won’t be playing. The Crew have designated their July 26 match against the English Premier League’s Newcastle United as this season’s unpaid game. Crew technical director Brian Bliss said an additional non-league match, including the Connor Senn Memorial Match, would cost the club $10,000 because of the Major League Soccer Players Union’s most recently ratified collective-bargaining agreement, which stipulates that MLS clubs can schedule only one non-league “free game” per season. “Anything after that, we have to pay our players,” Bliss said. “It comes down to a matter of resources and how the club wants to spend its resources.” The Crew competed in each of the previous nine editions of the match, which honors Connor Senn, a former OSU player who died Sept. 26, 2001, from a congenital heart defect during a game against Akron. With the Crew opting not to participate in this year’s event, the Buckeyes will instead host the Dayton Dutch Lions of the USL Pro league in today’s match. Crew defender Danny O’Rourke, a childhood friend and teammate of Senn’s, told The Lantern that he and other Crew players have committed to playing a small role in today’s festivities. “Some of my buddies like Will Hesmer, Chad Marshall and Duncan Oughton will be out there mingling with the crowd and signing autographs,” O’Rourke said. O’Rourke said he is disappointed the Crew won’t be participating on the field. “I think the whole cause of the game got lost in the process,” O’Rourke said. “The whole point is to celebrate soccer in Columbus, to celebrate the best college team in Columbus and the best pro team. It’s just sad that it gets lost.” OSU athletic department spokeswoman Alissa Clendenen said there were several factors involved in the Crew’s decision not to play in the match. “We have definitely enjoyed the ongoing partnership with the Crew the last nine years, and are disappointed for it to change, but excited to play the Dayton Dutch Lions,” she said in an email to The Lantern. Crew coach Robert Warzycha said he hopes his team will return to the memorial match in the future. “We’ve been participating in the game for so many years,” he said. “We have to make sure we find time, and, whatever happens, hopefully participate next year.” The 10th annual Connor Senn Memorial Match will kick off at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Sergio Garcia sorry for fried chicken remark about Tiger Woods

first_imgI apologise for any offense that may have been caused by my comment on stage during the European Tour Players’ Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner.”On a night when South African Ernie Els was lauded for his British Open triumph last summer, the final award went to Rory McIlroy.The Northern Irishman took home the Players’ Player of the Year award went to Rory McIlroy as his peers recognised his achievements of winning USPGA Championship, winning the Race to Dubai, reaching the summit of the world rankings [now occupied by Woods] and topping the US Tour money list.McIlroy received the award from Luke Donald, the winner of last year’s peer prize.Sergio Garcia lays into Tiger, says he’s been lying to media for 15 yearsEuro skipper Paul McGinley opts for 3 Ryder Cup wild cards FOR THE FIRST time since last September, the victorious 2012 European Ryder Cup team were reunited but a joke, made in haste and poor taste, by Sergio Gacria has overshadowed the reunion.The Spaniard has been the focus of increased media attention since his latest falling out with long-time rival Tiger Woods at The Players’ Championship at Sawgrass. The thin veil of cordiality has been torn down in the past two weeks and both Garcia and Woods have been openly critical of several aspects of each other’s lives, game and personalities.While both players are now hoping for the story to go away, Garcia’s comments at the European Tour Players’ Awards on Tuesday have kept the feud front and centre.Asked if he would invite Woods over tour dinner before next month’s US Open, Garcia remarked, “We’ll have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”The fried chicken remark may be associated with racial stereotypes of African-Americans and is redolent of the comments made by former US Masters winner Fuzzy Zoeller, about Woods, in 1997. Following Woods’ first Masters win that year, Zoeller remarked that fried chicken would be served as the main dish at the traditional winners’ dinner in 1998. Garcia, through the European Tour, was prompt in issuing an apology. It read:last_img read more

Sony PlayStation CEO Disses Nintendo

first_imgThe Sony PlayStation team is finally standing up for the brand. The CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Jack Tretton, has stated that the Nintendo DS is for kids only, while the Wii is already outdated. Here is the quote from Mr. Tretton when he talked to CNN about Nintendo:If you’re really going to sustain technology for a decade, you have to be cutting edge when you launch a platform. Here we are four years into the PlayStation 3, and it’s just hitting its stride. We’ll enjoy a long downhill roll behind it because the technology that was so cutting edge in 2006 is extremely relevant today Referring to the Wii controllers that Sony Move has mastered, Tretton went on to say that motion gaming was “cute.” Tretton also said that he believes the PlayStation 3 will last for at least six more years, while staying relevant.

3rd District campaign mailers had mixed message

first_imgAs political campaigns look for new ways to reach voters and earn their support, some traditions hold true. Campaign mailers once again flourished in Clark County, specifically relating to candidates in the 3rd Congressional District race.A few pieces of literature were sent before the primary, but many likely noticed their mailboxes filling with campaign materials in the weeks before the Nov. 6 election. Six mailers alone went out in the days preceding the election.Along with digital advertising, print materials represent a large chunk of campaign spending.Are these mailers even effective?If you ask Travis Ridout, professor of government and public policy with Washington State University, the answer is not really.Ridout said there’s not a lot of solid research into the impact of campaign mailers — despite their popularity. But he suspects they have an impact, albeit a small one.“One reason they may be useful is that they can be targeted to specific types of voters, e.g., you can send a message about child care to a mother of young children, and you can ignore voters whom you presume are going to support the other candidate,” Ridout said. “So that makes mailers particularly efficient. They can also help to build name recognition for a candidate — and remind voters when ballots are due.”But can mailers influence a voter to vote for a specific candidate?A 2017 study conducted by two political scientists in California found mailers, and outreach in general by candidates and volunteers, had no “measurable change in voting incomes,” as reported by The Atlantic.last_img read more

Physicists theorize entangled quantum batteries could be almost perfect

first_img More information: Extractable work from ensembles of quantum batteries. Entanglement helps, arXiv:1211.1209 [quant-ph] arxiv.org/abs/1211.1209AbstractMotivated by the recent interest in thermodynamics of micro- and mesoscopic quantum systems we study the maximal amount of work that can be reversibly extracted from a quantum system used to store temporarily energy. Guided by the notion of passivity of a quantum state we show that entangling unitary controls extract in general more work than independent ones. In the limit of large number of copies one can reach the thermodynamical bound given by the variational principle for free energy.via Arxiv Blog (Phys.org)—Theoretical physicists Robert Alicki and Mark Fannes of the University of Gdansk and the University of Leuven respectively, have uploaded a paper to the preprint server arXiv where they theorize that it should be possible to build an almost perfect entangled quantum battery. They suggest that as the number of entangled batteries increases, their overall performance approaches the thermodynamic limit. © 2012 Phys.org Explore further Chinese team builds first quantum router Journal information: arXiv The teams’ ideas are based on work that has shown that some quantum systems possess some amount of energy while others do not, i.e. those in a passive state. The difference between the two is considered to be extractable work. In their paper the two show that under normal circumstances, the work extracted from such a system isn’t perfect, but when entanglement is considered, things can be improved. They suggest that if a quantum battery were made that was also entangled, more work could be extracted from the system as more of the entangled batteries are added to the system. Such work could theoretically be extracted instantly, because of the properties of entanglement, which they say, would mean that as more batteries are added, the closer the whole system would come to being a perfect battery, i.e. one that doesn’t lose any energy when it’s transferred.Their theory is not without its flaws, the pair acknowledge, the main one being that no one knows how to build such a battery using current technology. Another is that even if there were a way, the practicalities of building a real battery would likely introduce inefficiencies into the system, removing its perfection.On the other hand, as some have noted, nature seems to have found a away to overcome the problem of building such a battery as, biologists have shown that the process of photosynthesis achieves perfect energy transfer, though nobody has been able to explain how.If ever an entangled quantum battery were made with nearly perfect energy transfer, it could be used to power atomic or even subatomic devices, or perhaps more practically, allow for the creation of batteries that are far superior to those used in everyday applications such as lithium-ion battery packs.

The tale of Draupadis escapade to earth

first_imgWhat happens when Draupadi, bored of heaven, decides to escape to earth with Amba, Kunti and Gandhari? They land up in New Delhi only to soak in as much of the mortal world as they could.‘Ms Draupadi Kuru: After the Pandavas’ is an interesting take on the feisty queen, a feminist in her own right, by filmmaker, writer and stand-up comedian Trisha Das.According to the author, Draupadi had “spent virtually her whole life juggling the five of them (Pandavas) so that none felt less of a husband to her than the others. Each had constantly tested her: Yudhishtra with sarcasm, Bhima with fits of jealous rage, Arjuna with self-pity and endless ‘what if’ conversations and Nakula and Sahadeva with defiance and sulking. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf“She had cajoled, calmed and even coerced them on a daily basis so that they remained fit to function as rulers without killing each other. Exhausting for five women, let alone one.” Das says she’s been always a big fan of the Mahabharata and knew she wanted to write a fan fiction novel. “These four women – Draupadi, Amba, Kunti and Gandhari – have always fascinated me and I wanted to try and use their perspective in a fun, yet meaningful way,” she says. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThus was born “Ms Draupadi Kuru: After the Pandavas,” which she says is “sort of like Jane Austen meets Hrishikesh Mukherjee meets documentary meets humour meets fantasy meets mythology.” Das says her book, published by HarperCollins India, is not a retelling or a reimagining but a contemporary story which “starts thousands of years after the Mahabharata ended, in present day India.” Religion doesn’t come into play at all in the book and was never an area of focus, she says, adding “I’ve always tried in my writing to be respectful to both religion and mythology.”  Das chose the character of Draupadi for her book as “I think she most closely represents a modern Indian woman in terms of outlook and personality. She seems to have a relatively modern sensibility and a questioning nature.” Draupadi, according to her, is “strong, passionate and fiery. She’s intelligent and loyal. She’s headstrong and impetuous.” Asked if she was apprehensive while choosing the topic of the book, she replies, “No. This book comes from a place of love and respect, not fear or apprehension.”last_img read more

The draft Roadmap is a proposal to deliver better care and result in healthier people through the safe and secure exchange and use of electronic health information.HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell commented: “HHS is working to achieve a better health care system with healthier patients, but to do that, we need to ensure that information is available both to consumers and their doctors. Great progress has been made to digitize the care experience, and now it’s time to free up this data so patients and providers can securely access their health information when and where they need it. A successful learning system relies on an interoperable health IT system where information can be collected, shared, and used to improve health, facilitate research, and inform clinical outcomes. This Roadmap explains what we can do over the next three years to get there.”The draft Roadmap builds on the vision paper, Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A 10-Year Vision to Achieve an Interoperable Health IT Infrastructure, issued in June 2014. Months of comments and feedback from hundreds of health and health IT experts from across the nation through ONC advisory group feedback, listening sessions and an online forum aided in the development of the Roadmap.“To realize better care and the vision of a learning health system, we will work together across the public and private sectors to clearly define standards, motivate their use through clear incentives and establish trust in the health IT ecosystem through defining the rules of engagement. We look forward to working collaboratively and systematically with federal, state and private sector partners to see that electronic health information is available when and where it matters,” said Karen DeSalvo, M.D., national coordinator for health IT.The announcement is linked with the administration’s Precision Medicine Initiative to improve care and speed the development of new treatments, as well as the department-wide effort to achieve better care, smarter spending and healthier people through improvements to our health care delivery system.As part of this work, HHS is focused on three key areas: improving the way providers are paid, improving and innovating in care delivery and sharing information more broadly to providers, consumers, and others to support better decisions while maintaining privacy. The draft Roadmap identifies critical actions to achieve success in sharing information and interoperability and outlines a timeframe for implementation.The draft Roadmap calls for ONC to identify the best available technical standards for core interoperability functions. With today’s announcement, ONC is delivering on this action with the release of the Draft 2015 Interoperability Advisory: The best available standards and implementation specifications for interoperability of clinical health information (“Standards Advisory”). The Standards Advisory represents ONC’s assessment of the best available standards and implementation specifications for clinical health information interoperability as of December 2014.The draft Roadmap, designed in concert with the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan 2015 – 2020, is based on a core set of building blocks that are needed to achieve interoperability:1.  Core technical standards and functions;2.  Certification to support adoption and optimization of health IT products and services;3.  Privacy and security protections for health information;4.  Supportive business, clinical, cultural, and regulatory environments; and5.  Rules of engagement and governance.The public comment period for the draft Roadmap closes April 3, 2015.
