New Study Shows Decrease In Total Medical Malpractice Claims, Increase In Size Of Paid Claims. - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good afternoon!

Gene writes today about a new study that confirms that the total number of claims paid for medical negligence has been decreasing for the last two decades, while the amount paid on each claim has been increasing.

The reason for both trends is relatively simple: the cost of pursuing a malpractice claim has become so great that few attorneys can afford to file a “modest” claim for damages. As a result, there are fewer cases filed, but those that are filed are in cases with large damages.

Good afternoon!

Gene writes today about promising new research in the field of lung cancer. New therapies are being developed that better target the particular type of cancer by matching it with the appropriate drug, thereby reducing the need for systemic chemotherapy.

Virtual Reality In The Hospital? - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good afternoon!

Gene writes today about virtual reality in the hospital. A recent study looked at how patients might benefit from virtual reality use to help reduce stress and ease pain. Instead of looking at the four walls of a hospital room, patients could be in another (virtual) world, swimming with whales or visiting a beautiful landscape.

This can particularly benefit child patients, who often suffer even more stress while hospitalized.

New prostate cancer screening guidelines gain acceptance, if not clarity - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good morning!

Are you a man? Do you know a man? If so, you may be interested in the recently updated prostate cancer screening guidelines from the US Preventive Services Task Force. In sum, the Task Force recommends that men younger than 55 and older than 70 do not get screened using the PSA lab test. For those 56-69, the Task Force recommends discussing the risks and benefits with their doctor.

A more in depth discussion about the Task Force's reasoning - including the real risks of testing, and the likelihood that testing will prevent death from cancer - can be found here:

Physician Orders Under Electronic Records Systems - Chemnick | Moen | Greenstreet, Seattle Washington

cmglaw.com

Good afternoon!

Gene writes today about how physicians enter orders for their patients. With the advent of electronic medical records, physicians must enter each order electronically. If one assumes many orders throughout the day, this adds up, and takes away from time the doctor can spend with the patient.

Where is the app, Gene wonders, that will allow such orders to be dictated into a smart phone? In an age where we can order pizzas with such technology, perhaps we can figure out how to cut the cord keeping doctors tied to computer monitors.
