Health systems turning to clinical quality to determine compensation
Aurora declined to make a member of its compensation committee available to be interviewed. But in a statement, it said that from 2007, when Turkal became its chief executive, through 2012, Aurora realized $590 million in costs savings. That apparently has resulted in lower costs for patients: Aurora’s overall rates were estimated to be 3% below the average for southeastern Wisconsin and the lowest in the Milwaukee area in 2011, compared with an estimated 23% above the average in 2003, according to a report released in late 2012 by the Greater Milwaukee Business Foundation on Health Inc. Revenue still a top goal The rise in health care costs since the late 1990s has made clear that even nonprofit health systems want to expand their revenues. “The key thing is just because they are nonprofit institutions doesn’t mean they are not trying to maximize profit,” said Robert Town, a health economist at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. In the Milwaukee area, this can be seen in the new hospitals, new towers, new clinics and new technologies added just in the past few years. “Americans treasure growth above all. And everyone who heads an organization wants it to grow. It’s almost professional pride,” said Uwe E. Reinhardt, a health economist at Princeton University. Yet if the nation is to slow the rise in health care spending, health systems cannot continue to grow at their historic pace.
You sure have no idea what that does to him. Put succinctly, it is refreshing in His presence. Of course, waxing somewhat spiritual may sound uninteresting; it is just a proof of individual differences, you may say.
So, with my editors blessing, I decided to go out and put the product to the test myself. What better way to find out the truth that to conduct my own study? To get started, I volunteered to be the “guinea pig”. I applied online for a bottle of Pure Garcinia Cambogia . Pure Garcinia Cambogia is one of the most credible and trustworthy diet supplement suppliers on the market.
High-Fat, High-Calorie Diet Could Lead To Pancreatic Cancer, Mouse Study Shows

Jennifer Lawrence refuses to diet for Hollywood, stays awesome
Researchers from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, purposely made mice obese by feeding them diets high in calories and fat. They found that those mice went on to develop a number of health issues, including pancreatic tissue inflammation, higher insulin levels, metabolic abnormalities and lesions called pancreas intraepithelial neoplasias. These lesions are known to be a precursor to pancreatic cancer . “The development of these lesions in mice is very similar to what happens in humans,” study researcher Dr. Guido Eibl, a professor in the surgery department at the university and member of the Jonsson Cancer Center, said in a statement. “These lesions take a long time to develop into cancer, so there is enough time for cancer-preventive strategies, such as changing to a lower-fat, lower-calorie diet, to have a positive effect.” The new research is published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research . Researchers separated mice into two groups: One was fed a normal diet, and the other was fed a high-fat, high-calorie diet, for 14 months. The normal-diet group gained approximately 7.2 grams over the study period, while the high-fat, high-calorie-diet group gained approximately 15.9 grams. “Our results demonstrate that a diet high in fats and calories leads to obesity and metabolic disturbances similar to humans and accelerates early pancreatic neoplasia in the conditional KrasG12D mouse model,” the researchers wrote in the study. “This model and findings will provide the basis for more robust studies attempting to unravel the mechanisms underlying the cancer-promoting properties of obesity as well as to evaluate dietary- and chemo-preventive strategies targeting obesity-associated pancreatic cancer development.” Pancreatic cancer is notoriously deadly, with the five-year survival rate being just 6 percent , according to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. LiveScience points out that’s often because the cancer is not caught until it’s progressed to a later stage and spread to other parts of the body.
