Patient Access And Control: The Future Of Chronic Disease Management?

It is not just kidney patients that are active in pain management. I have chronic pain and I have found that doctors are very reluctant to give pain management! I always am actively trying to find a way to relieve my pain!

Editor’s note:Dr. Kaveh Safavi is the global managing director of Accenture Health.

Sufferers of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United States are among the more active practitioners of disease self-management. It involves, among other disciplines, rigorous self-monitoring of blood glucose and blood pressure levels, strict dietary discipline and, possibly, self-administering of insulin injections. It is a complex program of continuous diagnosis and treatment that also entails the regular communication of patient data to, and sharing among, multiple care providers.

Healthcare providers are of course using this data to help monitor and prescribe treatment. But they’re also beginning to integrate the data into patient electronic medical records (EMRs). In 2013, Boston-based Partners HealthCare, for example, became among the first U.S. providers to integrate CKD-related data from at-home devices with the electronic records held in its doctors’ offices. Home patients can access their data and track their progress on a…

Wheeee

I have an 8 week old kitten and he is like a toddler. His name is Rescue and he can try the patience of a saint and I love him so much! I call him rescue because he was rescued from a drain pipe! He has the energy of five people! I have to do 2 more things to make him legal and I have never been happier!

I am an animal lover and I always have been! I love the animal rescue community because they are a group of people who love animals and have hearts as big as gold! I have seen so many dogs and cats in hellish situations that have been saved by these wonderful people! I thank god every day that they help the animals that can’t speak for themselve!

I have to go! Will write more later!

Peace Love and pug hugs!

Today did not turn out like i wanted it to !

I am just sitting here writing this blog tonight and I just am really just hurting physically and it has made me feel like totally crap! Walking to the carry out which is 5 minutes from where i live and by the time i got home i was hurting so bad. I hate being in this much pain. I have been wondering if my depression being the way it is is because of the way my pain is lately! I just never thought  that pain could make my depression  this bad!

It has been so crazy here I just want to scream! My previous spine surgeon must have his screw loose because not only did he schedule a pain management on the same date as my appointment to Ohio State not only that but the exact same time! I am going to Ohio State and i will leave the pain management  open until i know what is going on! Dr V you truly suck!

Peace Love and Pug hugs!

The start to my day is one of being very blessed

I have been trying to figure out where my life is headed and i am still confused as ever! There is so much I want to do with my life and I have no means to do it! Then I have realized more times the I can count how very very blessed I am! I may not have a lot of money but I am very very rich in the things that truly matters to me and that is the love of my friends and the lives of the people i have hopefully touched! I don’t need anything less or more then that in my life! I have to constantly  remind myself of those blessings daily!

I have been blessed in so many ways! God has seen me through so very much! My childhood where i had depression and the doctors didn’t even see it! My adulthood so far with my divorce and my depression and my anxiety and my PTSD! I forget how blessed i am when i am caught up in the pain cycle it makes me not want to feel anything but despair! I have such gratitude to God and my friends because they are the ones who have seen me through everything!

Today I am going to go get the disc of my MRI to take with me to Ohio State!  The appointment is a year in the making and it will answer all the questions I have had  about what is happening to my back! It is the day after my birthday and i will say if i finally get the answers i am seeking it will be the best birthday present i could ever ever have! All I have wanted is to have a life worth living! If what is wrong with my back  can’t be fixed then i have to learn to live with it  the best way I know how! God will bless me with the way I have to live with it!

Well I am on the way to start my day! I will talk to you all later!

Peace Love and pug hugs!

Gmail Password Leak Update

This upsets me because it feels to me that our privacy is being violated yet again and people don’t give a damn! When they hack they aren’t thinking about the chaos that causes!

The WordPress.com Blog

This week, a group of hackers released a list of about 5 million Gmail addresses and passwords. This list was not generated as a result of an exploit of WordPress.com, but since a number of emails on the list matched email addresses associated with WordPress.com accounts, we took steps to protect our users.

We downloaded the list, compared it to our user database, and proactively reset over 100,000 accounts for which the password given in the list matched the WordPress.com password. We also sent email notification of the password reset containing instructions for regaining access to the account. Users who received the email were instructed to follow these steps:

  1. Go to WordPress.com.
  2. Click the “Login” button on the homepage.
  3. Click on the link “Lost your password?”
  4. Enter your WordPress.com username.
  5. Click the “Get New Password” button.

In general, it’s very important that passwords be unique for each account. Using the same…
