After EMR Implementation, Surgeons Spend Less Time Interacting with Patients

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

– Implementing an electronic medical records (EMR) system at an orthopaedic clinic may have unanticipated effects on clinic efficiency and productivity – including a temporary increase in labor costs and a lasting reduction in time spent interacting with patients, reports a study in September 19, 2018 issue of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio in partnership with Wolters Kluwer.

Simulations Enable “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure” Stereochemistry

University of Utah

“We used our data-driven tools to derive significant insight into how the process works that allows us to design the correct additives to get the desired outcomes,” Sigman said. The results allow chemists to control which stereochemical product comes out of the reaction, simply by selecting the right ligand. It’s more than just a laboratory convenience, though. The study also reveals much more about how this important chemical process works.

Drug Overdose Epidemic Has Been Growing Exponentially For Decades

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Death rates from drug overdoses in the U.S. have been on an exponential growth curve that began at least 15 years before the mid-1990s surge in opioid prescribing, suggesting that overdose death rates may continue along this same historical growth trajectory for years to come.

Cancer Immunotherapy Might Benefit From Previously Overlooked Immune Players

University of California San Diego Health

Using a bioinformatics approach, University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers found that CD4+ T cell’s binding partner, a molecule called MHC-II, may have even more influence on emerging tumors than MHC-I, the better known partner of CD8+ T cells. The finding, published September 20 in Cell, may help researchers improve cancer immunotherapies and predict which patients will respond best.
