Thread: Thoughts on #valuebased & #patientcenteredcare

Within #healthcare & #advocacy there seems to be a great deal of discussion on both #valuebased care & #PCC. #Healthcare costs have skyrocketed’ & thus a need to #reduce. I am not an #economist but as a #caregiver I 1/
definitely have seen ‘waste’. From my POV costs will continue to skyrocket even if #valuebased care is implemented. One reason (again not an economist) is the vulture ‘istic’ aspect of industries profiting from our system. The other reason is that our system is not centered 2/
around the #patient or patients needs. Thus, if the value based metric is reduced hospital admissions, this, on the face seems straight forth, however if the patients needs are not taken into account but only focused on established metric, costs could (& I will argue often r) 3/

കെ.ആർ ഗൗരിയമ്മ എന്ന മുപ്പത്തിമൂന്നുകാരി 68 വർഷം മുൻപ് തിരുകൊച്ചി നിയമസഭയിൽ നടത്തിയ ഒരു പ്രസംഗമാണ്.

മന്തുള്ള വീട്ടിലെ പെണ്ണിന്റെ പേറെടുക്കാൻ പോകുന്ന മിഡ് വൈഫുമാർ ചെയ്യുന്നത് എന്താണെന്നു നിങ്ങൾക്കറിയുമോ, മിസ്റ്റർ ഗോവിന്ദ മേനോൻ (പനമ്പിള്ളി)? വേണ്ട കോളറയുള്ള വീട്ടിൽ?
അല്ലെങ്കിൽ വസൂരിയുള്ള വീട്ടിൽ? അവിടെയൊക്കെ പേറ് നടക്കുന്നുണ്ടെന്നെങ്കിലും നിങ്ങൾ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടോ മിസ്റ്റർ ഗോവിന്ദ മേനോൻ?

'ഒന്നും വേണ്ട.... നാട്ടിൽ കോളറയുണ്ട്, വസൂരിയുണ്ട്, പ്‌ളേഗുണ്ട് എന്നെങ്കിലും നിങ്ങൾ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടോ?
ഇതിനൊക്കെ ഇടയിലൂടെ ഇന്ന് ഓരോ വീട്ടിലും കയറിയിറങ്ങാൻ ധൈര്യം ഈ മിഡ് വൈഫുമാർക്കു മാത്രമേയുള്ളു. അവർ നിങ്ങൾ ഭരണക്കാരേപ്പോലെ അറച്ചു നിൽക്കില്ല. ഓരോ വീട്ടിലും പോകും. പക്ഷേ, അവർക്ക് ആഴ്ചയിൽ നാലു നാഴി അരി കൊടുക്കണം എന്നു പറഞ്ഞാൽ നിങ്ങൾ ഖജനാവിനുമേൽ കെട്ടിപ്പിടിച്ചു പൂണ്ടുകിടക്കും.

#जनपदोद्ध्वंस [ #Epidemic ] के कारण के विषय में भगवान् आत्रेय से अग्निवेश का प्रश्न -

#अग्निवेश ने कहा ‘एक ही समय में भिन्न-भिन्न प्रकृति, आहार, देह, बल, सात्म्य, मन और आयु के मनुष्यों का जनपदोद्ध्वंस ( #महामारी ) एक ही व्याधि से कैसे होता है ?’

भगवान् #आत्रेय का उत्तर - प्रकृति आदि भावों के भिन्न होते हुए भी मनुष्यों के जो अन्य #भाव_सामान्य हैं, उनके विकृत होने से एक ही समय में, एक ही समान लक्षण वाले #रोग उत्पन्न होकर #जनपद को नष्ट कर देते हैं। वे ये भाव जनपद में सामान्य होते हैं। जैसे-#वायु, #जल, #देश और #काल
(१) विकृत (रोग पैदा करने वाली) #वायु के लक्षण -

ऋतु के विपरीत, अतिनिश्चल, अति वेग वाली, अत्यन्त कर्कश, अतिशीत, अति उष्ण, अत्यन्त रुक्ष, अत्यन्त अभिष्यन्दी, भयंकर शब्द करने वाली, आपस में टक्कर खाती हुई, अति कुण्डली युक्त , बुरे गन्ध, वाष्प, बालू , धूलि और #धूम से दूषित हुई।

Today @DrMikeRyan -- who heads up @WHO #COVID19 response -- received Ireland's Trócaire’s Romero Award. His speech was extraordinary. Some is in the clip below. And in a thread, here are key transcriptions.
#COVID19 does not discriminate. We too cannot, must not, discriminate in our fight against this #pandemic. Doing so will only work in the pandemic’s favour. The last eight months have shown us that unity, not singularity, defeats pandemics.”
“We are pushing nature to its limit. We are pushing population to its limit. We’re pushing communities to their limits. We’re stressing the environment. We are creating the conditions in which epidemics flourish. We’re forcing & pushing people to migrate away from..."

Independent SAGE
A Beveridge Report for Britain's COVID-19 Public Health Disaster
Sir David King, Convenor of Independent 'SAGE
@BylineTimes CMO, former director of public health John #Ashton, praises the recommendations of the independent report convened by Sir David King
Four months into the #COVID-19 pandemic and with the total of deaths in hospital, care home and community settings heading north of 50,000, we have at last had the benefit of a coherent and transparent analysis of the challenge the country faces with clear guidance ahead.
Published on 12 May, the Independent #SAGE Report identified the priorities for action to support the gradual release from social distancing by means of a sustainable response, until such time as effective treatments or vaccines become available.

This is of course - how most politely to put it - poppycock. Yes, the official so-called active cases count is dropping but that is not because India has the epidemic under control. New cases, officially, are at 85 k plus per day, deaths at 1100 a day.
Unofficially, of course, no one has a clue what the real numbers are. This is just the kind of false optimism and pseudo-science that today's Lancet editorial is all about. India is shoring up big real problems.…
This fetish with recovered cases is a peculiar affliction of those who want to put a falsely positive spin on the #epidemic. #Coronavirus infection is an illness that naturally recovers, (unless it kills). Recovery does not mean a bounce back to vigorous health for 10-15% of..

After the Birthday Party yesterday, when the hangover lifts the reality bites. This #Coronavirus #epidemic in #India shows no sign of abating; another 96k new infections as we march towards #6MillionCorona cases by the end of September. And that's just the Reported numbers. Image

No let-up. #India #Coronavirus #epidemic. Above 95k new cases for 3 straight days now, brings the total to 3 days short of the #5millionCases point. Image
As of yesterday, the world league table for cumulative cases of #Coronavirus infections reported looked like this:: Image
But in terms of the latest single day cases reported, India is firmly in the lead. Image

Another daily record has been set by #India's #Coronavirus #epidemic. Yesterday there were a whopping 78,761 new infections taking the total to above 3.5Million well on course for the 4 Million prediction by 5 September.
Over the last 5 days the compound daily growth rate has been 2.27% per day. That sounds tiny but such is the power of compound growth that at 2.27% per day the doubling time (to 7 million cases) is 30 days. So we COULD be looking at 7 Million by early Oct.
In the last 14 days we added almost a MIllion new cases (well 9.53 lakhs actually) That figure is more than the cumulative total number of infections in all countries except Brazil America, and by a narrow whisker, Russia.

There are many ways to understand the scale of #India's #Coronavirus #epidemic. First, the basic numbers: Another 76,472 cases added 24 hours to 8.00 am today, bringing the total to #3.4Million. Image
That puts #India miles ahead of every country except Brazil (3.81M) and USA (6.1M). But India is ahead of even Briazil and USA in terms of new cases yesterday:
India: 76,472
Brazil: 48,112
USA: 49,601 Image
In the last 14 days #India has ADDED 9,40,000 cases. By tomorrow, India's Last 14 days New cases will exceed the total number of infections recorded in any country except Brazil and USA Image

It is widely believed in #India that the mortality from #Coronavirus is low, under 2%. Many commentators take the reported numbers, 51k deaths, 2.65 million infection as of today, and derive a mortality risk of 1.9%. This is of course silly, because 32% of that 2.65M are recent
32% of 2.65M occurred in the last 14 days. But even of you factor that in the mortality is low (2.8%). Deaths may be under-counted and under-reported, but so may cases especially the asymptomatic ones that may never come to attention. But all of this misses an important point
The actual risk of serious illness or death contingent upon catching #Coronavirus is not so important as the behaviour of people as a consequence of their perception of that risk and its unacceptability and avoidability. The fact is that India is now at a stage where #Coronavirus

As #India's #Coronavirus #epidemic scales new records - 2.088 Million cases so far and 61,000 cases in 1 day - it's worth noting that India's epidemic is still growing. One measure is the number of cases in last 14 days. So while India is No.3 in the world for total cases-see pic Image
In terms of recent cases, i.e new infections recorded and reported in the last 14 days, India is not far behind America. Image
In terms of the proportion of total cases that occurred in the most recent 14 days, India's RQ Recency Quotient of 38% is exceeded only by the Philippines and Colombia. Image
