Video: Medical Diagnosis Decision Influences Accountable Care

Posted by Megan Pennie on Fri, Mar 02, 2012 @ 10:35 AM

Jason Maude, Founder and CEO of Isabel Healthcare, talks about the influence that accountable care will have for patients, especially at the diagnostic stage.

Diagnosis will be ever more important as all costs and subsequent decisions about a patient are based on and influenced by getting a correct diagnosis as early as possible. Accountable Care begins at the diagnostic stage. Clinicians now have the incentive of being paid to "think" about a patient more than "doing" tests or procedures. This paradigm shift puts a strong emphasis on the very first decision made about a patient: diagnosis. It is the single most important decision about a patient.

1 Minute Read: Purpuric Rash Symptoms and Its Differential Diagnosis

Posted by Jason Maude on Wed, Feb 15, 2012 @ 11:30 AM

Purpura is a purplish discoloration of the skin produced by small bleeding vessels under the skin surface which are also known as skin hemorrhages or blood spots. The appearance of purpura is striking, and it doesn’t blanch when pressure is applied, so it can also be known as a non-blanching petechial rash.  Purpuric rash can be further differentiated into the size of the lesions, petechiae are pinpoint hemorrhages less than 2mm in diameter, purpura are 2-10mm wide purple flat lesions and  purpuric ecchymosis are more than 10mm wide and look like a large bruised area. The rash can appear anywhere on the body.
