Don’t forget to vote…

The upcoming election is of great importance for healthcare providers. Additional cuts to Medicare and Medicaid funding for hospitals would mean a decline in safe patient care. No matter which party you’re affiliated with, make sure to vote for improving healthcare.


What about prevention?

According to a study conducted by the CDC, only about half of the adults in the U.S. received selected preventive services, such as screenings, consultations, and prescriptions, from healthcare professionals before 2010. The study was conducted before the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, which has since provided 54 million Americans at least one free preventive service through private insurance companies.


Saving lives at any age

A campaign was recently launched to help educate older adults about the importance of registering to become an organ, eye, or skin donor. The campaign was started to help dispel the myth that anyone over age 50 isn’t allowed to become a donor or receive a donation.


Cancer projections on the rise

A new report has projected that by 2030 the worldwide incidence of cancer will increase by 75%. Cancer trends vary by country and are based on development; countries with a low Human Development Index (HDI) experience a higher rate of cancer related to infection, such as cervical cancer. Countries with a high HDI experience higher incidences of cancer related to “westernized” lifestyles, such as lung cancer.
