Minority of teens receive health care transition planning

A minority of adolescents with diagnosed mental, behavioral, and developmental disorders (MBDDs) receive recommended health care transition planning, according to research published in the Aug. 27 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Rebecca T. Leeb, Ph.D., from the CDC in Atlanta, and colleagues analyzed pooled, parent-reported data from the 2016 and 2017 National Survey of Children’s Health comparing adolescents aged 12 to 17 years with and without MBDDs on a composite measure and specific indicators of recommended health care transition planning.

The researchers found that about 15 percent of adolescents received recommended health care transition planning: 15.8 and 14.2 percent of those with and without MBDDs, respectively. Compared with those without MBDDs, adolescents with anxiety and depression were 36 and 69 percent, respectively, more likely to receive recommended health care transition planning after adjustment for age, while those with autism

    Core Change fitness studio still adapting since reopening

    “There is so much more than fighting this one virus. We need to pay attention to it, but need to think about things to improve our overall lives.”

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — While many small businesses have slowly been reopening over the last few months, it’s still a tough road ahead.

    Fitness studios are one group of businesses that are still adapting to the new regulations and change of pace.

    Inside the Core Change’s Bearden studio, the whir of music and machines is an encouraging sound for owner Lacey Robinette.

    “It’s definitely been tricky, opening a small business then only having six months to get it off the ground, then being shut down completely. We have certainly felt the impact,” Robinette said.

    She’s one of many small business owners trying to get back on their feet during the coronavirus pandemic.

    “There’s obviously a lot of nervousness and unknown around COVID and

    Here’s a loose guide for following an anti-inflammatory diet (plus a fresh salad recipe)

    On Nutrition

    Inflammation — and anti-inflammatory diets — have been health-and-nutrition hot topics for several years. Naturally, that means the quality of the information you might find ranges from science-based to highly questionable. Seriously, just Google it. (Wait, on second thought, don’t.)

    That’s why I was glad to see a dose of sanity in the new book, “Anti-Inflammatory Diet Meal Prep” by Seattle registered dietitian Ginger Hultin, owner of ChampagneNutrition and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “The most misunderstood thing about an anti-inflammatory diet is that it’s not a miracle cure,” she said, adding that while the physical effects of inflammation, including pain and fatigue, can stem from a chronically poor diet or inactive lifestyle, they can also be a side effect of a number of serious medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, cancer and autoimmune diseases. “Eating an anti-inflammatory diet works in conjunction with medical treatment

    What To Consider When Outsourcing R&D Of Medical Devices

    Founder & CEO of RSIP Vision, bringing custom AI services and R&D to the image processing/computer vision marketplace.

    A Technavio report predicted a $6.77 billion growth for R&D outsourcing services between 2019 and 2023. The reasons that more and more companies turn to outsourcing go far beyond economic gain. Increased flexibility, access to external expertise, focus on core competence, speed time to market as well as savings on hiring, training, managing and headcount all play a factor.

    Development of medical equipment requires adherence to high quality standards and flawless processes. Choosing an experienced outsourcing company with specialized knowledge in the area of interest can deliver faster, better results. An outsourcing team already has thorough medical and anatomical knowledge, has worked for that specific imaging modality, understands the specialized keywords and clinical language, and knows the mechanisms and methods for succeeding in a medical project.

    At the same time,

    Rolling up the latest in startup health insurance offerings, Sana Benefits raises $20.8 million

    Sana Benefits, a manager of self-funded insurance plans for small businesses, said it has raised $20.8 million in a recent round of funding as it looks to roll up all of the latest startup health benefit providers into a convenient package for small businesses.

    Self-financed insurance plans are set up by companies to pay out of pocket for their employees’ healthcare and are typically cheaper, because employers can pick and choose which services they offer.

    According to Sana Health co-founder Will Young, most companies wind up spending too much because they buy off-the-shelf plans from the big insurance companies like United Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna or Humana.

    The company touts partnerships with startups like Beam Dental for dental coverage, PlushCare for telemedicine, Calm and Ginger.io for mental wellness, ClassPass for physical fitness and Maven Clinic for maternity care.

    Its pitch attracted the attention of Gigafund, Trust
