Use of telemedicine low for substance use disorder treatment - Dotemirates

Use of telemedicine low for substance use disorder treatment

(HealthDay)—The use of telemedicine for substance use disorder (tele-SUD) is relatively low in a commercially insured population, according to a study published in the December issue of Health Affairs. Haiden A. Huskamp, Ph.D., from Harvard Medical School in Boston, and colleagues describe how tele-SUD is being used and identify characteristics of tele-SUD users using claims data from 2010 to 2017. They note several key regulatory and reimbursement barriers to greater use of tele-SUD and note that both Congress and the states are considering or have passed legislation to address these barriers. The researchers found that despite a rapid increase during...

Hypertension is prevalent more in lower income areas

Washington: People enrolled in a large clinical hypertension management trial were half as likely to control their blood pressure if they received care at clinics and primary care practices in low-income areas, suggests a study. The study was published in 'JAHA: Journal of the American Heart Association.' Participants in a low-income area had a 25 per cent higher chance of dying from any cause and a 25 per cent higher likelihood of hospitalisation and death related to heart failure over the course of the study period, than those receiving care in higher-income areas. In addition, participants at low-income sites also...

Cancer: These 4 genes help predict outcome

Extensive research into the role of the tumor suppressor p53 offers a greater understanding of the genetic mutations that are at play in various forms of cancer, as well as identifying four genes that may help predict a person's outlook. The overexpression of four genes can help predict the outcome of cancers that have a p53 mutation, new research finds. The TP53 gene is responsible for encoding what scientists call tumor protein p53 — a tumor suppressor that can stop cells from dividing and proliferating too fast. Researchers have dubbed TP53 the "guardian of the genome" because of its crucial...
