Managed Care Managed Care ist keine in sich geschlossene Theorie, sondern vielmehr ein Bündel ganz unterschiedlicher Organisationsmodelle und Management-Instrumente, die in vielfältigen Kombinationen eingesetzt werden. Genau aus diesem Grund ist es auch nicht möglich, für oder gegen Managed Care zu sein. Dies kann ausschließlich auf der Ebene der einzelnen Organisationsformen oder Management -Instrumente stimmen. Managed Care hat sich in den letzten Jahren deutlich weiter entwickelt und neue Themen sind hinzugekommen. Diesen Entwicklungen hat der Autor in dieser Auflage Rechnung getragen. Neu hinzugekommen sind beispielsweise Kapitel zu Consumer Driven Health Plans (CDHP), Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), Medical Homes, Pharmaceutical Benefit Management, Bundled Payments, Pay-for-Performance, Public Reporting und Patienten Coaching sowie eine Vielzahl neuer Fallstudien.

´´Witty, occasionally crass, and an unqualified delight.” (Kirkus Reviews)Is it too much to ask that a managed care facility refund a year’s advance payment when your grandfather dies before he can move in? Frank Johnson doesn’t think so, which is why the 33-year-old now lives in a nursing home, locked in a chess-match feud with management that doesn’t occupy nearly enough of his time. When foster kid Elroy is thrust into his life, Frank decides to turn this forced relationship to his advantage - launching a string of absurd decisions, inappropriate behaviors, and unexpected glimpses of tenderness that ultimately turn a New Jersey suburb upside down. A laugh-out-loud celebration of bad choices for good causes, Managed Care is an offbeat story about three misfits on the social fringes of suburbia and their ridiculous campaign to introduce an unfiltered version of intimacy to their stale, impersonal community. Because, according to Frank, it’s probably what Jesus would have wanted. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith Barbaria.

Circadian Rhythm is the name of a boat that was the vehicle for many summers of rollicking good times for a group of blue-collar yachtsmen. This book describes these adventures and provides the listener with a glimpse of the champagne life style on a beer budget. The intrepid crew of Circadian Rhythm could barely make the month´s payment on the boat, but still managed to bang heads with the ´´blue-bloods´´ of the New England sailing world and come out ahead. This book is for the armchair sailor and active sailor who enjoy a good yarn with a few chuckles mixed in. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Chekijian.

A hard-hitting critique of how managed care and the selective use of science to privilege quick-fix therapies have undermined in-depth psychotherapy - to the detriment of patients and practitioners In recent decades there has been a decline in the quality and availability of psychotherapy in America that has gone largely unnoticed - even though rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are on the rise. In Saving Talk Therapy, veteran psychologist Dr. Enrico Gnaulati presents evocative case studies from his practice to remind patients and therapists alike how and why traditional talk therapy works and, using cutting-edge research findings, unpacks the problematic incentives in our health-care system and in academic psychology that explain its decline. Beginning with a discussion of the historical development of talk therapy, Gnaulati goes on to dissect the factors that have eroded it. Psychotropic drugs, if no longer thought of as a magical cure, are still overprescribed and shunt health-care dollars to drug companies. Managed-care companies and mental health ´´carve outs´´ send these same dollars to administrators and slash payments to therapists, driving many talented ones away and overburdening those who remain in the system. Drawing back the curtains on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) - a short-term, goal-oriented form of psychotherapy that is preferred in the managed-care world - Gnaulati shows that, while it might prove effective in the research lab, those findings don´t readily apply to people´s complex emotional problems. Gnaulati also casts a spotlight on how CBT´s favored status in graduate programs prevents trainee therapists from acquiring the relationship skills necessary to caringly and carefully treat patients. Saving Talk Therapy is a passionate and deeply researched case for in-depth, personally transformative psychotherapy that incorporates the benefits of evidence-based practice and psychotropic d 1.

´´Let me tell you one thing, Beast: if your prince ever returns, watch his back. There are thousands who would gladly throw daggers at it.” And Belle would be first in line. Ten years ago he was Prince Aiden, heir of Jereena, at the top of the world - now, they call him Beast. Aiden has landed on his feet: His exclusive club is the place to be, and he makes hundreds of thousands a night. What else could he possibly want? Belle grew up during the Anarchy, and the corrupted system screwed her big time, but she managed to get by. Then, her stupid brother goes and steals from the Beast, who demands her as payment. Well, her, a pile of cash, or her sister. Options two and three aren’t acceptable. Beauty and the Beast is the third volume of Not Quite the Fairy Tale. However, it´s a stand-alone. I do recommend listening to at least Cinderella first, to ´´get´´ the world...but it´s not necessary. Believe me, you´ll enjoy it regardless. Beware of strong language and sexual situations. 1.

This week on Car Talk, Andy borrowed his Dad´s Buick for a romantic drive to the country. All was right with the world, until he ran out of gas. A Good Samaritan gave him a few gallons, but somehow Andy managed to drop a straw into the gas tank. Now, Dad´s car is running lousy, and Andy needs to know if one straw could cause a few boat payments worth of damage. Elsewhere, Brian is trying to decide whether his Mercedes´ new noise is the sound of it playing Taps; Mary wants to coax a few more miles from her Altima´s slipping clutch; and Gail wants to retro-fit a vintage VW Beetle with air conditioning--maybe a nice window unit from Home Depot? Also, on Stump the Chumps, did Tom and Ray successfully diagnose Susanne´s overheating Mazda? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: July 28, 2012] 1. Language: English.

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open-source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Creation and transfer of coins is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority. While inspired by and in most regards technically nearly identical to Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin has some minor technical differences compared to Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Litecoin also has almost zero payment cost.Litecoin was released via an open-source client on GitHub on October 7, 2011, by Charlie Lee, a former Google employee. The Litecoin network went live on October 13, 2011. It was a fork of the Bitcoin Core client, differing primarily by having a decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes), increased maximum number of coins, different hashing algorithm (scrypt, instead of SHA-256), and a slightly modified GUI.During the month of November 2013, the aggregate value of Litecoin experienced massive growth which included a 100% leap within 24 hours.Litecoin reached a one billion dollar market capitalization in November 2013. By late November 2017, its market capitalization was US $4,600,081,733 ($85.18 per coin).In May 2017, Litecoin became the first of the top five (by market cap) cryptocurrencies to adopt Segregated Witness. Later in May of the same year, the first Lightning Network transaction was completed through Litecoin, transferring 0.00000001 LTC from Zürich to San Francisco in under one second. 1.

After waking up in a hotel room while on a business trip to Oregon on September 11, 2001, and learning that his colleagues back in the World Trade Center had perished, Alan Schnur resolved to start over with a life filled with more than hard work alone. He vowed to also attain the freedom to spend time with his family and travel the world for weeks on end. Time to reflect and share his wisdom with others. He started over in the real-estate trenches and developed practical and straightforward business processes to buy property with no down payment...to turn a single property into hundreds more that generate guaranteed passive income...to ramp up his investments until he owned the most stable and profitable types of properties...to leverage tax benefits from multiple income streams and know when to sell...and to surround himself with a team of ´´warriors´´ who share his cash flow mindset that generates millions of dollars. Alan has bought more than 2,000 apartment units and managed more than 7,000 units, along with hundreds of single-family houses. He owns numerous medical, office, and warehouse buildings, along with over a dozen shopping centers around the United States, and builds multi-million-dollar custom homes. He has lectured on his business systems at Harvard University and received an award from the Mayor of Houston. He travels all over the world and mentors others so that they, too, can achieve this same cash-flow mindset that leads to financial freedom and a fulfilled life. And now, with this easy-to-understand manual that guides you through every step in the process, with the insight of Alan’s years in the real estate trenches, you can do it, too. 1. Language: English.
