How some doctors ended up prescribing fewer pills
"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd. Yata used to be when doctors prescribe a drug. They'd open up a a book summarizing drugs and dosages or go by memory for the common stuff but nowadays now you can type in whatever it is and then placing an order via computer. See you type in an order of the name of the drug. And it will pre populate everything one Carlos Monte as an emergency medicine physician at San Francisco General Hospital. He also studies decision making in healthcare. He says for an antibiotic default dose programmed into a doctor's computer might be pretty standard but for pain. The the number of opioids prescribed might vary a lot depending on the patient and their type of pain. Well we wanted to look at is whether and to what extent the precepts the default upsetting that we had in the electric medical record influence provider prescribing specifically would lower defaults resulting fewer opioids being prescribed. Soman toys team systematically changed the recommended opioid pill number defaults in the computer systems of two hospitals in the San Francisco Bay area during an eight month period rid. Each hospital's pre existing defaults were twelve and twenty pills respectively. The researchers dialed in new defaults of five ten fifteen or an unspecified number of pills compared to doctors prior prescribing habits. The new default settings resulted in fewer opioid pills prescribed overall and fewer prescriptions shins exceeding the maximum recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So this is suggestive that hospitals other departments clinics can change the setting England impact opioid prescribing. Pretty much immediately as the really low constantly prevention and can be done really quickly. The results are in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Russian internal medicine. Definitely not a silver bullet. The epidemic has a lot of different issues that need to be addressed in this one small tool so that we can use to address. There still could be a useful prescription for physicians.

"They have made this really rare decision to be out of network with all private health insurance. They're also the only trauma center in San Francisco. So if you have a trauma, I if you fall from a height if you are hit by a bus, an ambulance is going to take you to San Francisco General hospital, and if you have private insurance they are not going to be in. At work with your health insurance. So let me tell you what pigeon. I wrote about their who this was just a horrific story. This guy named Justin who was walking on the sidewalk and this poll hanging off the back of a public bus hits him in the face and knocks him unconscious next thing he knows he wakes up at San Francisco General he has a severe concussion he has laceration to the face. He also ends up with a twenty seven thousand dollar Bill. So this guy was hit by public bus take into the public hospitals public health bus. Yeah. Like everything about this with so horrendous for twenty seven grand what kind of treatment? Did he receive any was there? He got a CAT scan some pain meds, and some stitches of that was very, very basic. It was a pretty. Yeah. I mean, it was not a complicated. Visit and you know, this is a case where he he had no choice. You know, he was knocked unconscious. I think healthcare is the only good you purchase when you're not conscious. You know, someone else called an ambulance. The ambulance took him to place. He you know, he's having this work done when he's not awake. And I think that is that is one of the. Reasons I find these e r situations especially frustrating is because you do have people who aren't able to shop. You can't decide if you want to go to the emergency room if you're having a true emergency. And that creates this monopoly like behavior where you see this billing at absurd rates because patients just can't say, no, the presumption from when I was younger, what was explained to be once that they've got to charge everybody these big numbers to keep the place hot and ready for the serious catastrophic injury when you walk in the door, and you've got poison Ivy. They gotta give you a Bill to help pay for the guy that had the steering wheel go through his neck. Yeah. I mean, I hear that a lot from virgin. I am very skeptical that argument one because I see the prices just very the price of being prepared seems to vary wildly from one hospital to another. So the that seems a little bit of a false justification. I do understand, you know, they need to keep the lights running. They need to keep it on. They need to be ready for the gunshot wounds. But they also charge the guy with a gunshot wound. A lot more than the poison pie poison Ivy person like they essentially have these things called facility fees, where if you're, you know, the poison Ivy person you get a level one facility fee, but if your gun shut person, you're going to get level five and that's going to be quite expensive. So it's not like you. I do understand people have to contribute voidable. It doesn't happen in Canada. Right. Like, if you have a healthcare system where you decide that patients shouldn't be the ones bearing those costs, then you you can avoid it. If you want to create a policy situation that avoids it close the more and more uninsured. People are using the emergency rooms for regular medical care. They go there with the flu. Do they should be seeing a doctor, and they shouldn't be cluttering up emergency room?.
Shkreli awards for the worst actors in health care
"Medical care is in a crisis. This is Dr Michael Wilks where they second opinion as a nation. We spend eighteen percent of our gross national product on health care, frankly, we are not getting good value. There are loads of problems getting doctors to modernize their practices creating a larger role for mid level providers, like nurse practitioners, and physicians assistance. And of course, greed the enormous drive for profit in America has become the major influence in healthcare delivery. And this greed is not confined to any one sector the list of greedy organizations in medicine is long and diverse. But at the very top of that list are the pharmaceutical companies drugs that have been around for decades like insulin discovered. Nearly a hundred years ago have reached record high prices. Drug companies take a drug like insulin. Make a small change that allows them to keep the drug on patent. This abhorrent practice is called ever-greening in this case. What's ironic is at the very researchers at the university of Toronto who discovered the drug insulin gave the patent to drug companies for free. So that the drug could be available to the public ninety eight years after it was discovered drug companies still refused to manufacture a generic affordable. Brand I have patients that are taking half or a quarter of their required dose because they can no longer afford to take the full dose. The makers of insulin are not alone. Perdue pharma influence doctors through unethical marketing, free, lunches payments or gifts, and so called education campaigns to write unnecessary. Opioid prescriptions, which we all know has resulted in tens of thousands of opioid deaths. So it is no surprise that. Nostrum laboratories was at the top in the list of shit Crowley awards. Nostrum increase the price of an old antibiotic used to treat a urinary tract infection by a mere four hundred percent why because they could thus SHA Crawley awards given annually by the loan institute are for the worst actors in health care this year. Three of the top ten were pharmaceutical companies the award is named after the convicted felon and CEO of turing pharmaceuticals Martin Shkreli who jacked up the price of an old lifesaving antibiotic to unaffordable prices. Other winners included the convicted felon, Dr Fata who is a Michigan cancer, doctor who treated more. More than five hundred and fifty people for cancer who it turns out didn't really have cancer. Other winners were San Francisco General hospital for gross overbilling nursing homes that provided unnecessary care and then build for it and Hennepin county medical center for conducting drug trials on patients without their permission. We can all be outraged. But unless we put a cap on this greed, this behavior will just continue. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion.

Everybody worked together and then start to volberding him. He shut down the bat houses when at the very beginning to help try to get the disease under control. It'd be great. If like, we should get public house private sectors and nonprofits to come together to help resolve the homeless issue. But there seems to be nobody to advocate for them. You know, the the gay community really rallying people rallied behind them, they advocated, and they they got it done. And as you say the the aids epidemic.

Don't you think? Absolutely. And has the public health system doing that? Now, I don't know. Well, that's what I'm looking towards the tech meter to help out to come up with solutions. I mean, there's so much creative energy up. Their bottom line is the here's the here's the different problem. The homelessness the ones that are in the tents on the streets are chronically mentally ill or their drug addicts. They just are. I'm not talking about the people living in the motels. I'm not talking about people living in their cars. I'm not talking about the people couch surfing. I'm talking about the tense. The people are there chronically, and those are meant that's mental illness period part of the mental illnesses that create that glues. They lose insight is the the fact that they're not well, and they do not they're not willing to trust or take any care from anybody. So the nature of the brain disease makes them push away care and the state leave them alone. Right. It's like literally if you're having a heart attack and part a side effect of that made you not able to consent for care. You said, okay. You want to have your heart attack? Good. No, we'd be we'd be considered ethically bankrupt. If we did that, but somehow because of brain diseases, we language on the Risi. Yeah. So we have to do with that. Segment of the population to though, the HIV population, and San Francisco at clinics and many different neighborhoods that you know, taking the tenderloin. Just so, you know, like the company I work for they donate fifty million dollars to destination home down here to try to help solve the problem in Santa Clara. Tony, I don't know how that's going out. I think there's too much focus on housing and not enough focus on the care of the chronically mentally ill. Would they need to come up some creative solution for that? Once we have the housing these people that are on the street will not go in because they don't want the housing on average. I will just say it took fourteen context to get one homeless person into a shower when they don't want it. They don't want it. And that's because of these illnesses. So it's all the focus is on housing. And that's good. We need the housing, but we need this other system as well. This midday live..
