Saskatchewan NDP Leader Ryan Meili was back in a familiar spot this weekend. It wasn’t debating on the floor of the Saskatchewan Legislature, but working as a doctor.

Telemedicine companies see funding boom of $788M in Q. We really don’t see this train slowing down, even when the pandemic is under better control.

Great to see Canadian entrepreneurs stepping up!

Starting today, 100,000 medical-grade surgical masks will be rolling off the assembly line daily. In 2 weeks, Zanatta's company will be producing 100,000 N95 respirators a day too.

Self-sufficiency is vital for these essentials. Let's hope Canadian hospitals continue to buy masks from him after this crisis is over to ensure we never find ourselves relying solely on other countries for essential healthcare items in a crisis.

U.S. and state regulators will be on the lookout for coronavirus related fraud of all kinds. Be particularly careful about: a) making health claims about anything being able to prevent or treat covid-19; and b) telehealth reimbursement submissions.

With the recent US emergency expanded Medicare telehealth coverage, private direct medical practices with Medicare participatory healthcare professionals must be more vigilant about refraining from marketing/charging for care coordination, access, electronic communication.

Despite early indications that COVID-19 would mainly affect the elderly, a CDC analysis of the 4,226 US cases as of March 16 shows that older adults are not, in fact, the largest group of hospitalized patients.
Here’s the breakdown by age:

9% aged ≥85 years

26% aged 65-84 years

17% aged 55-64 years

18% aged 45-54 years

20% aged 20-44 years

I am an optimistic person. But it seems rather clear at this point in time that the COVID-19 viral pandemic will become much worse before it gets better. Many more will become infected, and some will die. The effect on the economy and markets is already significant, even devastating, at least in the

I don’t hold children accountable for being out and about. It is the PARENTS’ job to enforce social distancing.

To parents who say that they have ‘no control’ over what their children do, I put together some helpful steps:

1. Sit your child down and explain what is happening, in calm & simple terms your child understands. If too difficult, search for a children-friendly video on Coronavirus & watch together. I posted one a week or so ago. Answer questions if they have any.

2. Explain further that they now need to refrain from making plans with friends. Yes, this will mean temporary inconvenience. No, it does not mean forever. Just temporary while we decrease spread potential.

3. Be a role model for your friends. If children start saying no to their friends, it will make things more acceptable on a social level. Less peer pressure if we do this together.

We will hopefully flatten the curve in this way & lessen the burden on healthcare system and therefore allow more people to heal.

There’s an upside here. If you’re home with your children, this is the perfect time to spend quality time together. The glass half-full.

AMEN! Finally, an issue that actually will do some good FOR PATIENTS — these bills are driving our classes and families into deeper and deeper debt every year with no sign of relief. Not everything can be fixed or relieved at a primary care office or family medical office. There are times we need surgery, or ERs. THANK YOU.

Two bills up for debate and revision in the House this week aim to stop surprise medical billing — when patients are billed for services their insurance won't cover.

Right now, hospitals and insurers keep their secret, negotiated prices hidden from us as patients. The Trump Administration has required hospitals to reveal these hidden prices, and they plan to sue to keep them hidden.

Together, we can demand access to REAL PRICES across the healthcare system!Tell the Trump Administration you support price transparency.

Act now: Make your voice heard. Share your story with HHS by Jan. 29th to support access to electronic health information, including price and quality.

Good work Strada Healthcare. The sad part also on the other side sometimes is when you as a patient ask for a cash pay price AFTER they’ve checked your insurance and you get a cash pay quote from the Docs office of $1,100 cash. It’s not a fair marketplace out there for patients. Keep up the great work you guys are doing! 😀😷😀 we need more offices like you out here in the real world. 🙂

If only “providers” and hospitals were easier to talk to and communicate with about setting up a payment plan. In a perfect world ... 😔 thanks for sharing PinnacleCare. Keep up the good work you all do.

Large medical bills are straining many people’s finances. One study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation noted that one in five Americans who are working age and have health insurance had difficulty paying medical bills. Of the people surveyed for the study, 63% report using most or all of their savings to cover the bills.

Few things in the healthcare market can be as potentially disruptive as retail clinics, and for that reason so much attention is focused on them. A recent survey showed that 91 percent of patients who used a retail clinic reported that they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their visit. With retail clinics being called the healthcare “game-changer”, can DPC compete? Or can retail clinics and DPC live together in harmony? Read more -
