Great Service 👍🏼
One slide had me pondering,
#realDonaldTrump image flew by.
He was constructing a Wall. A Barrier where Non Americans walk into USA. No Fence, No Customs, No Declaration, No #Covid Questions.
Canada Border Closed.
I just watched this video by #realDonaldTrump which explains a lot. He talks Regulatory Reform, Property Rights, Stepping up Ventilator manufacturing and sharing with less fortunate countries. He called #COVID19 the China Virus. At the time he was mocked for this by #MSM
#Telehealth in speech #realDonaldTrump Covid-19 necessitated Distance Assessment and management of Patients by Medical Staff. No credit by #MSM . In Fact @Twitter banned him for “inciting a riot”. He did not. Why was Nancy Pelosi’s elevator unlocked? Capitol police stood back.

Most people with a hereditary cancer predisposition have no idea they are at increased risk. How do we find them?! Tech can help do this in a scalable way, but it has to clinically valid, right? Yeah. Our poster # CAN58 is on just that. Highlights here. 1/n #NSGC21 #GCChat
How does tech help here? Think app, chatbot, website etc that a patient quickly fills out while in the waiting room at the doctor or mammography center. It asks about their personal and family history of cancer to figure out if they meet criteria for genetic testing 2/n #NSGC21
The fab cancer GCs & software engineers @genematters have made such a tool, so we set out to make sure it gives people the right assessment. To do that we compared the tool's assessment to the assessment made by a cancer GC who saw the patient for pre-test GCing. 3/n #NSGC21

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

1/ Report on #telehealth from GAO has reasonable methods but draws the wrong, negatively skewed conclusion toward telehealth reimbursement that compromises health equity. Below is an elaboration…
2/ First, the researchers methods are reasonable. They primarily rely on CMS reports, which have limited utility given lack of granularity of those data, especially around disparities. But the researchers did supplement with interviews with providers, consumers, state leaders.
3/ Report appropriately finds that Medicare telehealth waivers resulted in increased utilization of telehealth services & provided beneficiaries access to services that would not have otherwise been available during the early days of the #COVID19. That was the point of waivers.

(Thread 1/n) The Future of Health & #Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us?

@daniel_kraft eloquently summarizes the early innings of #healthcare #technology, and its #future. #mustwatch

My favorite takeaways below:

(Thread 2/n) The Future of Health & Medicine:
Where Can Technology Take Us?

Some companies discussed: $TDOC $DRIO $GDRX $AMZN $UBER $AAPL $FIT $AMWL $GOOGL

@TeladocHealth (I think) would be wise to purchase
@DetectTest @VitalConnectInc @TytoCare @HeartFlow ImageImageImageImage
(Thread 3/n) The Future of Health & Medicine
Glucose Monitoring paving the path forward.

Diabetes care started the path forward. Wearable monitoring, is still in it's infancy. What other applications will come?

The folks who are anti-diversity need to update their tired playbook.

Sharing space for win-wins is not the same as hating people in a space.

Violating professional ethics by trying to diagnose via Twitter only damages own professional reputation by displaying poor judgment.
The time to have diagnosed by Twitter was here - instead of holding leadership accountable, people scrambled to put guardrails and install people to be "adults" in the room to reassure the public.

Actually don't be reassured.
Do something.…
This was time to raise alarm, not "reassure"

All of you who distribute pacifiers and those eager to be pacified killed Americans

Plus, there was utterly bad and WRONG advice from a #physician and #publichealth #leader that "no need" to think about DNRs.

Last weekend, I made a threat on the ongoing #SocialMedia shutdown in Uganda and some implications on the future of #internet & Uganda's #digital agenda.

The thread attracted a lot of engagement and questions. Tonight, I will share some final thoughts on the subject. (1)
Conceptually, social media sites are the largest on-boarding platforms for internet users in Uganda. Notably, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat attract the highest internet traffic- which drives demand for other platform services e.g Google and Zoom recently.
So- when we talk about an "open internet", we mean the FULL resources of the internet. Any encumberance on selected applications has ripple effects across the entire network thus jeorpadizing standardization of internet/data transmission which is essential for innovation & growth

My last #telehealth shift, 100% of my patients were #COVID19 positive, seeking assessments whether they needed to go to the hospital.

Some did. But for those who could stay home, it was a privilege to allay fears & explain red flags. (Get a pulse ox!)…
People are worried - and they should be.

One patient told me recently, "I didn't really expect this disease to be this bad. I wish I could warn people."

I wish he could, too.

1/ @HHSGov⁩ ⁦@SecAzar⁩ has extended the #COVID19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) declaration effective Jan. 21, 2021 for an additional 90 days.
2/ This means that all of the #telehealth and other waivers and flexibilities that have been implemented during the #PHE will remain in effect until at least April 21, 2021.
3/ As in the summary & impact table by @AmerMedicalAssn, the Consolidated Appropriations Act signed into law 12/27/20 included provisions that offset most of the 10.2% budget neutrality adjustment that was slated to take effect for Medicare-covered services provided as of 1/1/21.

For @tadorna, #Covid19 made him feel like a #patient - again. We should not ever let #diabetes define us. It made him feel vulnerable because of this whole lot of uncertainties. Lack of #insulin and supplies was a worry.

For Bastian, #PeerSupport was key during this #pandemic. #telehealth for him is uploading his data and having a Zoom call with his endo. We #PwD want digital AND personal interaction with our #HCP.

#ICYMI: A new @CDCMMWR shows that an estimated 41% of U.S. adults reported avoiding medical care because of concerns about #COVID19, including 12% who avoided emergency care, and 32% who avoided routine care. Image
You should NEVER put emergency care on hold. Know the signs & symptoms of a medical emergency.

More via @HHS_ASH:
If you've recently missed routine medical appointments, call your provider to see if #telehealth appointments are available.
