Tropical Dermatology

 Dermatology  Comments Off on Tropical Dermatology
May 202018
 

Tropical diseases are not merely a group of nosologic diseases indigenous to the intertropical zone. Many are diseases of poor public health originating from poverty, ignorance, and population upheaval. Tropical dermatoses represent a public health problem in 127 countries with a population of 3 billion people who do not have access to health care. Currently, infectious and parasitic diseases along with emergent diseases such as AIDS, or old re-emergent, drug-resistant diseases constitute the majority of tropical dermatoses. This handbook presents the geographical distribution, etiology, clinical picture, and treatment of dermatoses in the tropics.

Infectious Diseases and Arthropods, Third Edition

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Infectious Diseases and Arthropods, Third Edition
May 192018
 


With the exception of a few tropical medicine schools worldwide, current medical education programs include almost zero discussion of the interface between infectious diseases and entomology. That is why this book was initially published in the first edition almost 17 years ago.
The third edition of this valuable infectious disease entomology book updates all existing chapters with the newest scientific developments described in the medical and entomological literature in addition to covering 10 entirely new topics not addressed in previous editions, which include:

· arthropod identification controversies
· early beginnings of public health and disease control
· red-meat allergy
· updates on vaccine development for dengue and malaria
· discussion of Chikungunya and Zika viruses
· American Boutonnneuse Fever
· the newest controversies in Lyme disease
· recent findings of viruses in ticks
· bed bug bite reactions
· Morgellons disease (an imaginary infectious disease)

Cartographies of Disease : Maps, Mapping, and Medicine, New Expanded Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Cartographies of Disease : Maps, Mapping, and Medicine, New Expanded Edition
May 192018
 

Cartographies of Disease: Maps, Mapping, and Medicine, new expanded edition, is a comprehensive survey of the technology of mapping and its relationship to the battle against disease. This look at medical mapping advances the argument that maps are not merely representations of spatial realities but a way of thinking about relationships between viral and bacterial communities, human hosts, and the environments in which diseases flourish. Cartographies of Disease traces the history of medical mapping from its growth in the 19th century during an era of trade and immigration to its renaissance in the 1990s during a new era of globalization. Referencing maps older than John Snow’s famous cholera maps of London in the mid-19th century, this survey pulls from the plague maps of the 1600s, while addressing current issues concerning the ability of GIS technology to track diseases worldwide. The original chapters have some minor updating, and two new chapters have been added. Chapter 13 attempts to understand how the hundreds of maps of Ebola revealed not simply disease incidence but the way in which the epidemic itself was perceived. Chapter 14 is about the spatiality of the disease and the means by which different cartographic approaches may affect how infectious outbreaks like ebola can be confronted and contained.

Hospital Economics : A Primer on Resource Allocation to Improve Productivity & Sustainability

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Hospital Economics : A Primer on Resource Allocation to Improve Productivity & Sustainability
May 192018
 

The biggest issue of economics in a hospital are the resource issues. A resource issue in hospitals creates many problems such as the excessive number of patients, poor service quality, lack of diagnostic tools and equipment, dirty and worn out facilities, long queues at the outpatient clinic, lack of drugs and other medical supplies, low employee morale, and so on. Hospital economics mention three main resource issues in as problems including; (1) Resource allocation issue, (2) Resource management issue, and (3) Generation resources issue.

The main economic problem of resource allocation in hospitals are production and cost function. These two functions related to issues of equality and effectiveness of the hospital. This book specifically discusses on the aspect of hospital resource allocation by highlighting the productivity, competitiveness, cost components, economic burden of disease, and economic aspects of infectious diseases originating from the hospital. The resource management issue is related to the use of existing resources in terms of input and output. The main important economic concept is efficiency, both technical efficiency, economical, and scale, as well as the relationship between these concepts. The resource management issue highlight the economic scale, human resource development, quality development, and lean implementation. The issue of generation resources, includes how the hospital is able to get the resources to run operations without having to cover the access of stratum of community thus violating the principle of equality. This book will highlight the issue of generation resources by including a discussion of the revenue components of the hospital and the impact of DRGs.

Value Driven Healthcare and Geriatric Medicine: Implications for Today’s Changing Health System

 Geriatrics  Comments Off on Value Driven Healthcare and Geriatric Medicine: Implications for Today’s Changing Health System
May 192018
 

Value driven healthcare is the lasting legacy of the Affordable Care Act, which had three goals: to improve access to healthcare by increasing healthcare insurance coverage, to improve the patient’s experience and quality of care, and to slow the rate of increase in healthcare costs. Regardless of changes to the financing of healthcare or changes in policy, value-based purchasing for healthcare is to remain a constant feature of the healthcare horizon.

Unequal Coverage: The Experience of Health Care Reform in the United States

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Unequal Coverage: The Experience of Health Care Reform in the United States
May 192018
 

The Affordable Care Act’s impact on coverage, access to care, and systematic exclusion in our health care system

The Affordable Care Act set off an unprecedented wave of health insurance enrollment as the most sweeping overhaul of the U.S. health insurance system since 1965. In the years since its enactment, some 20 million uninsured Americans gained access to coverage. And yet, the law remained unpopular and politically vulnerable. While the ACA extended social protections to some groups, its implementation was troubled and the act itself created new forms of exclusion. Access to affordable coverage options were highly segmented by state of residence, income, and citizenship status.

Unequal Coverage documents the everyday experiences of individuals and families across the U.S. as they attempted to access coverage and care in the five years following the passage of the ACA.It argues that while the Affordable Care Act succeeded in expanding access to care, it did so unevenly, ultimately also generating inequality and stratification. The volume investigates the outcomes of the ACA in communities throughout the country and provides up-close, intimate portraits of individuals and groups trying to access and provide health care for both the newly insured and those who remain uncovered. The contributors use the ACA as a lens to examine more broadly how social welfare policies in a multiracial and multiethnic democracy purport to be inclusive while simultaneously embracing certain kinds of exclusions.

Unequal Coverage concludes with an examination of the Affordable Care Act’s uncertain legacy under the new Presidential administration and considers what the future may hold for the American health care system. The book illustrates lessons learned and reveals how the law became a flashpoint for battles over inequality, fairness, and the role of government.
