    Medicare, launched in 1966, was a landmark advancement in health care for the United States. The staff at Susan Polk Insurance, Inc., providing insurance plans for Medicare in San Luis Obispo, would like the public to know more about the history of Medicare.

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (PRWEB) May 23, 2018

    Medicare then and now

    A little known fact today is that “Medicare” was originally the “Dependents’ Medical Care Act,” that was passed in 1956 to provide medical care for families of military personnel. Four years later, in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower held the first White House Conference on Aging during which a health care program for social security beneficiaries was proposed. Congress enacted Medicare and Medicaid in July 1965 under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act. President Lyndon Johnson signed the bill into law on July 30, 1965. The bill provided health insurance to people age 65 and older regardless of income or medical history.

    The first two people to become Medicare recipients were former President Truman and his wife, former First Lady Bess Truman. President Truman paid $3 per month for their Medicare coverage, which was deducted from his monthly social security payments.

    The Medicare program is operated and monitored by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a branch of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). CMS also monitors Medicaid programs that are offered by each state.  

    In 1966, Medicare ended the racial segregation in thousands of waiting rooms, hospitals, and physician practices by making payments to health care providers conditional on desegregating services and facilities.

    History is important

    History is important because it is helpful to know how things came to be and the influence something from the past has today. With at least 55,000 people receiving Medicare in San Luis Obispo County and another 67,000 in Santa Barbara County, The Polk Insurance Agency would like to share the origins and benefits of Medicare not only with the Central Coast communities, but elsewhere.

    Learning more about Medicare. Its origins and how the program has improved health care for so many American’s brings the significance of this program to an entire new generation who, in turn, will benefit from Medicare in the future.

    Who pays for Medicare?

    Medicare is funded from two trust funds held by the United States Department of Treasury:

    The Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund that pays for Medicare Part A benefits and Medicare program administration, including fighting fraud and abuse.

    The Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI) Trust Fund that pays for Part B and Part D benefits and Medicare program administration, including fighting fraud and abuse.

    The HI Trust Fund is funded by payroll taxes shared by employees and employers, taxes on self-employed people, income taxes on social security benefits, Part A premiums from people who are not eligible for free Part A and interest earned on the trust fund investments.

    Medicare Part B and Part D premiums along with funds authorized by Congress and other sources such as interest earned on the trust fund investments fund the SMI Trust Fund.

    Beginning in 1966, workers paid 0.35 percent of their earnings into the Medicare system. The Medicare tax hit 1-percent in 1973 and the current 1.45-percent went into effect in 1986. Employers pay a matching percentage.

    Beginning in 2013 workers earning more than $200,000 ($250,000 for couples) paid an additional 0.9-percent. Self-employed workers pay 2.9-percent of earned income into the trust fund.

    As a point of interest, in 2014 just the Part A contribution of local workers and employers to Medicare from San Luis Obispo County was more than $7 million.

    What Medicare has meant to Americans

    Before Medicare older adults often paid over three times as much for health insurance as younger people. Approximately 60-percent of people over 65 had health insurance, but the rest could not afford it. Today, many are eligible for dual coverage by both Medicare and Medicaid.

    By July 1966 more than 19 million people were enrolled in Medicare, or roughly 8-percent of the United States population for that year. Today, Medicare serves approximately 56 million people, or 17-percent of the population.

    Congress expanded eligibility to younger people with permanent disabilities, for people with end-stage renal disease and in 2001 to cover younger people with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Over the years, Medicare has included benefits for speech, physical and chiropractic therapies.

    In the 1980s the options of payments to health maintenance organizations (HMO) was added. The HMO option was formalized in as Part C under the Balanced Budget Act 1997. Medicare Part D was passed and signed by President George W. Bush in 2003.

    With Medicare Part C recipients began choosing coverage from private plans. The Susan Polk Insurance Agency specializes in serving Medicare-eligible people by helping them navigate the private plan system and offering plans to provide them with the best possible access to health care.

    Chief Information Officers from healthcare organizations look to the cloud, but with wary eyes around security and compliance.

    SEATTLE and MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) May 23, 2018

    Datica™ today released its 2018 CIO Cloud Perspective Survey titled “Healthcare Cloud Take-off: Waiting for the Fog to Clear.” The survey report has uncovered why chief information officers mark cloud migration as a pressing priority but also includes new details on why shifts to the cloud are happening slowly. From the survey, 17.7 percent of the respondents say they work with healthcare organizations that have more than 50 percent of the existing software infrastructure remotely hosted or in the cloud. Nearly 15 percent of those who took the survey say 25-50 percent of their infrastructure is cloud-based.

    Healthcare systems that have taken an on-ramp to the cloud are still in the minority, but the respondents of this survey who have made the cloud shift a reality are learning what works and what doesn’t. In 2015, and prior to cloud hosting becoming a mainstream topic in the medical industry, a paper from the Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research concluded that hospitals of all sizes would use cloud-based Healthcare Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Platforms to deliver healthcare information services with low cost, high clinical value, and high usability. Now, three years later, roughly 20 percent of hospitals have adopted those cloud-based infrastructures.

    Compliance, security, and privacy key to cloud adoption

    Another finding: Compliance, security, and privacy are the three primary concerns for those hospital CIOs who have considered implementing digital health technology from outside vendors. The survey questions drilled down deeper to uncover the following:· More than half of the respondents have concerns (52.57%)
    · Slightly less than half say they are comfortable assessing compliance of vendors (44%)
    · A mere 3.43 percent stated no concern for cloud-hosted applications because they weren’t allowed

    “These survey findings mirror what we’ve been hearing in high-level conversations at Datica,” said Travis Good, MD, CEO and Chief Privacy Officer for the company. “Although cloud hosting for healthcare has become mainstream, the understanding of and confidence in the cloud to meet the exacting standards of the highly regulated industry is still a major concern for healthcare systems.”

    Even though new tools and changes in the regulatory environment have made cloud a safe option for storing sensitive information, including Protected Health Information (PHI), the survey shows the majority of survey respondents do not have a strategy for moving their data centers to the cloud. Although nearly 60 percent of those who took the survey place cloud hosting in their organizations’ Top 10 priorities, only about 30 percent have a strategy in place.

    About Datica’s Hospital CIO Survey
    Conducted around the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference in Las Vegas, and with the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) CIO members, the research sought to provide an in-depth look at the current state of the cloud from the seat of the chief information officer of leading hospital organizations. An executive of Datica outlined the survey in person at the CHIME CIO forum at HIMSS18. Using an online survey, CIO leaders from 175 leading healthcare organizations participated in this research and final results were tabulated in April. Datica segmented survey responses and provided analysis to reveal five key findings for the report.

    NEW YORK, May 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The healthcare cognitive computing market size is projected to cross $13.3 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 34.0% during 2017-2023. The growth in the healthcare cognitive computing industry size will be led by increasing burden of chronic diseases, technological advancements in the healthcare industry encouraging the use of cognitive computing in healthcare, and rising adoption of third computing platforms.*Request to get the sample pages: **https://www.psmarketresearch.com/market-analysis/healthcare-cognitive-computing-market/report-sample*

    Increasing burden of chronic diseases is driving the healthcare cognitive computing market, with the rising need to manage complex and large volume of data. Complex diagnosis and treatment options of these diseases have enabled the market players to develop various cognitive computing solutions to enable faster and effective decisions by healthcare providers. Companies such as IBM Corporation are increasingly collaborating with public organizations to address the concern of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer, since these diseases have witnessed a significant increase, over a period.

    The healthcare market is characterized by increasing adoption of cognitive computing technology for research related to various chronic diseases. This increasing adoption has allowed the healthcare cognitive computing market players to enter into partnership with several research institutes for the testing and implementation of cognitive computing solutions offered by them. For instance, in November 2017, Royal Philips, a global provider of healthcare technology, and Nuance Communications Inc., an intelligent voice and language solutions company that provides 70% of radiology reports in the U.S., announced that the companies would together bring AI-based image interpretation and reporting capabilities to radiologists. They announced that their initiative would leverage assets from Philips Illumeo with adaptive intelligence and Nuance PowerScribe 360 to help reduce discrepancies and improve radiology reporting, accuracy and standardization.

    “It’s been a long-held and firm belief of mine that a good company cannot become a great one if it doesn’t put their people first and foremost,” states AP CEO Lon T. Dolber. “At American Portfolios, we strive to make sure our employees are happy, knowing that they will deliver optimal customer service when their needs are met.”

    HOLBROOK, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 25, 2018

    For the third consecutive year, American Portfolios Financial Services, Inc. (AP), a privately-held, independent broker/dealer that services financial advisors across the country, has ranked within the Top 10 Small Best Companies to Work for in New York State for 2018 by the New York State Society for Human Resources Management (NYS-SHRM) and the Best Companies Group (BCG). AP was ranked among 28 small-sized New York businesses in the category of employers with 15-99 United States employees. Among a select group of New York-based companies across varying industries, AP was honored at the program’s 11th annual awards ceremony.

    “It’s been a long-held and firm belief of mine that a good company cannot become a great one if it doesn’t put their people first and foremost,” states AP CEO Lon T. Dolber. “At American Portfolios, we strive to make sure our employees are happy, knowing that they will deliver optimal customer service when their needs are met.”

    Vice President of Human Resources Lisa DiBella shares this sentiment. “We have always been dedicated to creating a positive and supportive work environment, realizing that when you treat the people who work for you well, they are not only better equipped to do their jobs, but they are more motivated to go the extra distance for the company and its customers. We’re so pleased that the NYS-SHRM and BCG have recognized our efforts by bestowing this wonderful honor upon us for a third year in a row.”

    The annual awards are part of a program that identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in New York, whose practices benefit the state’s businesses, economy and workforce. AP has been formally recognized by the NYS-SHRM and the BCG in the category of small/medium-sized employers since 2016. These accomplishments directly correlate to the firm’s noteworthy achievement of having been named Broker/Dealer of the Year three times in a row (2015, 2016 and 2017) by Investment Advisor magazine.

    AP’s current count of 100-plus employees work collaboratively to service the business needs of 815 independent investment professionals, as well as their affiliated assistants and support staff, located in 372 branch offices throughout the United States. Employees are part of a corporate culture that embraces the tenets of the company’s strategic roadmap for sustainable growth, which is built on six equally important, interconnected strategic company perspectives—People, Innovation, Process, Customer, Financial and Community—and the foundation from which all planning and executions are derived.

    AP continually strives to ensure that its employees are afforded a positive and supportive work environment. Employees receive a robust benefits package, inclusive of health insurance, free life insurance, unprecedented 401(k) matching, stock options, bonus incentives, and performance and service awards. The firm is highly invested in the educational betterment of its employees, offering tuition reimbursement, free license testing, and unlimited training seminars and courses. The company also provides Six Sigma training, which helps staff members to firmly establish the “Voice of the Customer,” resulting in the ability to exceed client needs and expectations. The company also recognizes the importance of work-life balance by offering employees a flexible work schedule, health and wellness lunch and learns, appreciation events, massage sessions and private coaching sessions with a registered dietician. In 2017, the firm implemented several new initiatives, including an employee mentorship program designed to nurture AP’s emerging business leaders, shortened working hours on Fridays throughout the year and a casual dress code. At the start of 2018, AP employees began receiving full pay for up to a maximum of 12 weeks of leave while out on FMLA in order to maintain financial stability and began formal training in the AP W.E.L.C.O.M.E. Treatment, a five-module program that instills the firm’s core customer service principles.

    As an integral part of its strategic focus, ingrained in its corporate culture is a keen awareness to the community by taking part in socially responsible programs, such as its ongoing association with non-profit organizations like World T.E.A.M. Sports (WTS), which organizes athletic events for disabled and able-bodied citizens to achieve a common goal. Employees actively volunteer, coach and compete in WTS events, such as the annual Face of America Bike Ride, Coastal Team Challenge and Adventure Team Challenge, which is conducted through the firm’s long-standing support of The Center for Discovery, a non-profit research and innovation center that provides high-quality programs and unique opportunities for children and adults who have complex disabilities, medical frailties and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The firm also has an enduring relationship with Virtual Enterprises International, Inc. (VEI), an experiential learning program that fosters the nation’s future business leaders, through the hosting and judging of business plan competitions, and facilitating summer interns at the corporate offices and practices of its investment professionals through its AP-VEI Fellows Internship Program.
