CDC reports Opioid prescribing is still high, varies widely throughout the United States

July 6, 2017

Centers for Disease Control and PreventionWashington, D.C. – The amount of opioids prescribed in the United States peaked in 2010 and then decreased each year through 2015, but remains at high levels and varies from county to county in the U.S., according to the latest Vital Signs report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In 2015 six times more opioids per resident were dispensed in the highest-prescribing counties than in the lowest-prescribing counties. This wide variation suggests inconsistent prescribing practices among healthcare providers and that patients receive different care depending on where they live.

AAA reports OPEC Meeting Disappoints, Gas Price Surge Avoided

May 27, 2017

AAAKnoxville, TN – Motorists will not have to worry about surging gas prices this holiday weekend after all. Thursday’s OPEC meeting had the potential to cause a stir in the stock market. What actually happened was quite the opposite.

This agreement – implemented in November – was an attempt to reduce global crude oversupply and drive up oil prices to $60.00 per barrel.

Heart Failure Patients readmitted to the same hospital may have better outcomes

May 27, 2017

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – When patients with heart failure were re-hospitalized within a month, those who returned to the same hospital were discharged quicker and were more likely to survive, according to new Canadian research in the Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

In both Canada and the United States, ambulance policies usually require patients be taken to the nearest emergency room, even if a patient has recently been hospitalized somewhere else.

Time is important when seeking hospital care for acute events like heart attack or stroke, but for treatment of a chronic condition like heart failure, continuity of care seems to be more important, researchers said. (American Heart Association)
