Addressing Socioeconomic Disadvantages and Behavioral Interventions for Diabetes Prevention

Created by 
American Medical Association (AMA)
Expired
The socioeconomic disadvantages for those struggling with sub-standard living and environmental conditions are prone to exhibit behavior that produces a substantial increase toward a diabetes diagnosis. The resources available to the communities and individuals that fall within these categories are not equal to those available to individuals that reside at other socioeconomic intervals. The burden experienced by these groups is also profound, thus increasing risk factors. An attention to wider prevention techniques may create an impact for those experiencing disadvantages in their access to care. Addressing the inequalities that exist for certain individuals and communities may affect the manner that we approach methods of diabetes prevention.

Data Acquisition, Curation, and Use for a Continuously Learning Health System

Created by 
American Medical Association (AMA)
Expired
Sharing, curation, and use of data for a continuously learning health system hold great potential in wide and far reaching areas such as clinical care, patient engagement, informed clinical choice, quality improvement, drug and device safety, effectiveness assessments, and scientific discovery. But to achieve this, an unprecedented level of collaboration among and communication between all stakeholders in the health system is required. This paper calls for three key considerations: (1) Foster a culture of data sharing, (2) Create the operational functionality for data sharing, and (3) Build the continuous data-sharing improvement capacity.

Blood Pressure Measurement: Who performs it, how useful is it, and why did medical students recently fail the AMA Blood Pressure Check Challenge?

Created by 
American Medical Association (AMA)
Expired
As we move into the era of population health and big data, it is clear that having the capability of implementing large systematic blood pressure management programs has the potential for huge impact in preventing morbidity and mortality, and creating large cost savings for patients and systems. To roll out a blood pressure management program, we need to clearly define what is an accurate blood pressure measurement and how is it obtained. Who performs the blood pressure measurement? How useful is it? Most recently, the American Medical Association published the results of a Blood Pressure Check Challenge for medical students. One expert commented that these results suggest that the medical students were “falling well below what we would expect in terms of basic clinical competency.” Does this study suggest that there is a larger problem with blood pressure measurements?
