Medical Office Assistant And Pharmacy Technician Courses For Fast Healthcare Careers

June 27, 2020 Posted by kyu7

Becoming a pharmacist or a doctor is a serious educational commitment that takes several years. Especially in light of the almost decade long, immensely expensive process of becoming a doctor, healthcare careers can feel out of reach for many people. But becoming a physician is not the only option for healthcare hopefuls. Aside from nursing, two other prominent healthcare professions are medical office assistant and pharmacy technician. Let’s have a closer look.

Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy technician training has to prepare the student for the crucial role of assisting pharmacists conduct their duties. Most people know about the drug dispensaries found in commercial stores and hospitals, but there’s also a role for pharmacy technicians in medical research, third party insurers and drug manufacturing. Regardless of where the technician takes a job, your training will focus on a strict and accurate understanding of measurement, dispensing systems and drug effects. Though you will have the supervision of a pharmacist, patient safety depends on your ability to provide exactly the dose prescribed, and you’ll also have a chance to make sure they’re receiving the right medication and get to work directly with clients, including calling them to ensure medications are being taken as directed.

Programs are usually provided through vocational schools and colleges, with a length averaging around a year, but some programs allowing completion in less time. Like any healthcare professional, you will have liability insurance and accredited programs are offered in most provinces in Canada. 43% are employed in hospitals or similar facilities, and pharmacist shortages have seen a recent boom in the demand for people with pharmacy technician training, making it a reliable choice for steady and rewarding work.

Medical Office Assistant

In Canada, the role of the medical office assistant is somewhat more abbreviated than your American cousins, because of provincially regulated Medicare instead of a byzantine network of private insurers, but there’s still a strong demand for people with medical office assistant training. As well as clerical work, including working with sensitive and confidential medical records and calling patients to remind them of scheduled appointments, medical office assistants receive some front line medical training to help them understand the ins and outs of their patients’ needs.

One part secretarial and receptionist training, and one part anatomy and health lessons, medical office assistant training is also mostly found through career or vocational schools and community colleges. Like pharmacy technician programs the study time is short. Particular to the program the administrative side of the training also makes graduates flexible, with options to work outside the healthcare industry. If you do decide to stick with healthcare you could find yourself at the front desk of a private practice or part of a team in the medical record archives of a large hospital.

What’s Tantra Got to Do With Yoga?

June 22, 2020 Posted by kyu7

So often we get the question, “What’s Tantra Yoga?” Some may know it as the “yoga of sex” or the “sexy yoga” and think of it primarily as a way to achieve better orgasms.

And then there is the form of Yoga we have become so familiar with in the West, which has a studio at almost every street corner of our modern cities. We show up to a yoga studio, lay down our mat and practice our poses. That’s yoga, right? Yes, but that’s just one form of yoga called “Hatha” yoga.

Hatha yoga is the practice of the physical body. Tantra yoga is the practice of the energetic body.

What’s the “energetic body?” You can look at it this way: All matter is made up of energy frequency, as now proven by Quantum Physics. This includes our body. Life force energy is running through us human beings at all times from the moment we are conceived to the time we die. Life force energy is known by different names in different cultures, like Chi in Chinese, Kundalini in Sanskrit, Reiki in Japanese, or The Force like in Star Wars. Life force and sexual energy are the same. It’s the energy that brought us into this world. Most of the time life force sexual energy shows up in subtle states and then at times in aroused states. Tantric yoga allows to develop awareness of our life force energy and how it manifests in us on physical, emotional and mental levels.

To access energetic awareness we draw on the Chakra system of seven major energy centers in the body. Each Chakra is associated with a different way of sensing, feeling and reflecting. For example, the heart Chakra, located in the middle of the chest between the breasts, is associated with love and compassion, and the ability to connect with other people. This is seen when a person expresses love for something or someone and places their hand on their heart. We all know this experience. If the heart Chakra is out of balance and constricted, we may feel closed off to ourselves or from another. Other Chakras have other affects and all are equally important.

Connecting with our energy centers we can start to clear blocks of emotional, physical or spiritual nature so we may be living life to the fullest. These blocks do not just exist in the mind, they are held in the body. We look to the Chakras to see where we are out of balance. Through breath work, movement, meditation, and emotional and physical release processes, a person can clear these blocks and experience greater joy and aliveness in their life. What also ends up happening is the body starts “working” better, energy starts to flow more easily and we feel more awake and become physically well.

This is also the primary purpose of Hatha yoga – to allow one’s energy to flow more easily. Alignment is the main focus of any Hatha yoga class. The poses (a.k.a. “Asanas”) were designed to get a person’s body into optimal alignment. And not just for the sake of better posture; each pose has an energetic component behind it. For example, Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I) is great physically for building strength in the quadriceps and gluteus but also energetically cultivates more courage and strength to face life’s challenges.

Tantra and Hatha yoga, therefore, start feeding into each other. For example, if a person is practicing a lot of Tantra they may find that their asana practice greatly improves. This is because as their energy runs better, their body naturally goes towards optimal alignment. Conversely, if a person is primarily a Hatha yoga practitioner, their body will start to release emotional blocks as they work on their alignment. This is why not everyone feels at peace or happy during a yoga class. As we start to breathe and stretch into our bodies, old emotions start to arise.

You can see Yoga comes in many shapes and forms. Tantra is one practice that leads toward deeper fulfillment and joy in one’s life. When practiced in partnership with Hatha yoga, a practitioner can experience strength and aliveness in both their physical and energetic body.

trategies to Get Free Publicity For Your Health Club Or Gym

June 9, 2020 Posted by kyu7

You might think that your small gym or health club isn’t newsworthy. Think again! Do something to help others, and you in turn will reap rewards. The opportunities to market your health club are only limited by your own imagination. Here are seven amazingly simple ways to improve your health club marketing efforts and generate free publicity for your gym.

1. Canned food drive

“Free Enrollment when you bring in 5 canned foods!” Your fitness center can partner with a local soup kitchen or Salvation Army. Be sure to tell the newspapers and news stations about the partnership…they eat that stuff up! (And of course, you’re also helping those in need, which always feels good)

2. Write for your local newspaper

Does your local paper have a weekly fitness editorial? Write one for them! Contact your local paper(s), introduce yourself as a local health club owner, and let them know you would like to write a weekly fitness tip/article for them. The worst they will say is no. What other publications are distributed in your area. Community newsletters? Free newsstand periodicals? What about online resources? Are there websites catering to your area? Write articles for them. If you can’t write, have one of your staff members write.

3. Partner with your local radio station

You can have a radio station sponsor an 8-week weight loss contest for your health club. Get a DJ as your advocate. They can announce the contest to the listeners, have them submit applications, maybe even get teams set up between two DJ’s. All participants can have a free gym membership during the contest in exchange for lots of advertising for your health club over the 8 weeks.

4. Run a contest for charity

Get members to have friends and family pledge an amount per mile you spend on the treadmill or for every step you climb on the stairmaster. Even if you only get 2 people to participate, it doesn’t matter. Tell the radio station about it and they will do a story on it. It’s different, it’s interesting, and it’s not negative news…which seems to be all there is on the news these days. Run a successful health club marketing campaign and help others at the same time!

5. Provide free seminars

These can either be onsite at your facility or at a community center. If you call or visit your local Chamber of Commerce and ask about a listing of presentations, you will be amazed. People give presentations on anything from basket weaving to coding HTML. If they don’t already have someone regularly presenting on fitness-related topics, just ask them to put you on the schedule. They announce all upcoming presentations to their member and email list. Come up with a good headline for your presentation though. “Fitness Tips” just won’t cut it. How about, “How to lose that 10 Pounds before Bikini Season” or “Show Me the Diet You’re on and I’ll Show You Why it isn’t Working: A Roundtable Discussion” or “7 Things You Can do Right Now to Begin Losing Weight Tomorrow”. If you hold your seminar at your health club, announce it to all of your members and allow them to bring friends. Then contact your local newspaper and have them announce your fitness seminar to their readers. This is one of the most powerful gym marketing strategies and a great way to become recognized as the best health club in your market.

Health benefits of Raspberry

May 26, 2020 Posted by kyu7

Raspberry, the red-coloured, juicy fruit  with lots of health benefits. Packed with nutrients, minerals and vitamins. This magnificent fruit aids in lowering the risk of obesity, cardiovascular diseases and helps to enhance fertility.

 

According to a latest research, eating raspberries is good for enhancing fertility in both women and men because of its high levels of vitamin C and magnesium. Antioxidants help in protecting the sperm, promotes conception and reduce the risk of miscarriage.

 

Raspberries are apart of the rose family and are believed to have originated mainly in Eastern Asia. The British popularize the fruit throughout the middle ages and exported it to New York in 1771. While there is historical evidence that the raspberry was valued for its sweet berries, more value was placed on the leaves which have been used for medicinal purposes. The leaves are currently used in herbal teas to soothe the digestive system and menstrual cramps.

 

The leaves of the raspberry were also used to ease pain during child birth, diarrhea, obesity and  influenza, hypertension and lower blood sugar levels. With that said, raspberry is a fruit that everyone would want to have as healthy snack because of its countless health benefits.

 

Medical Malpractice New York: Case Of Sheer Negligence Of Healthcare Standards

May 8, 2020 Posted by kyu7

Medical Malpractice in New York is widespread and on the rise. Medical malpractice is the determination that no other reasonable medical professional would have performed the same actions as your provider. However, how is the patient or the patient’s family going to determine if Medical malpractice in New York occurred? This is not the responsibility of the patient. The patient or the patient’s family in conjunction with a medical malpractice lawyer can determine if medical malpractice in New York took place.

When you or your loved one becomes ill you put your treatment in the hands of the physician treating you. You want to believe that the physician is well trained. You want to believe that the physician will treat you based upon the best medical practice and not as a result of insurance guidelines. You want to be confident that your physician takes the time to get a complete history so that no surprises will arise during the course of treatment or surgery. You want to believe this because it is your right to receive the best possible treatment so that you will not be a victim of medical malpractice in New York.

However, if you are misdiagnosed or if your doctor neglects to order further tests due to insurance scrutiny, your sense of trust is now broken because you may have become a statistic of medical malpractice in New York. So many cases of medical malpractice in New York are never reported due to being misinformed or the victim or the victim’s family being so distraught as a result of the illness or death of the patient.

Medical Malpractice in New York can be the result of inappropriate treatment of a problem, treatment that caused new problems to develop, a diagnosis given too late for treatment to be effective or if the doctor initiated the wrong treatment due to minimal investigation of the problem. Medical Malpractice in New York can also occur during surgical procedures. During surgery and while a patient is under anesthesia is the time when a multiplicity of mishaps can occur. A patient all too frequently is given the wrong dosage of medication. A patient may be given an anesthetic that he is allergic to which would have been determined if the doctor took the time to get a complete history. These are all reasons for filing a suit for medical malpractice in New York.

Each and every physician must have Medical Malpractice insurance in New York. This insurance is to protect the physician not the patient. Medical Malpractice Insurance costs in New York are constantly increasing. Due to the increase in Medical Malpractice Insurance costs in New York, many of our fine doctors are leaving the New York area or are changing their specialties. This drain on competent doctors places the patient in a position to be a victim of medical malpractice in New York. If the outcome of your treatment or a loved one’s treatment was not what you expected do not rely upon the word of your doctor. You should seek the guidance of a malpractice lawyer to determine if you were a victim of medical malpractice in New York.

Top 10 Ways Healthcare Facilities Are Using Video Conferencing

April 23, 2020 Posted by kyu7

1. Boundary Less Healthcare via Telemedicine Video Conferencing – video conference solutions enable Doctors and Healthcare companies to offer a low-cost, high-impact way to deliver rapid knowledge to physicians, either to save lives or to gain additional medical training, sales and research. Healthcare Facilities Are Using Video Conference To Improve Patient Outcomes, Increase Revenues, & Reduce Expense.

2. Remote Patient Monitoring – for locations with limited access to specialized doctors, campuses can connect to share resources and offer healthcare programs to all patients across distant locations and even remote villages. Physicians from large teaching hospitals or medical centers can connect with their remote patients, via video communication for the purpose of rendering a diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan.

Videoconferencing enables the patient to see a specialist during a remote consultation accomplished in real-time, or the transmission of images, such as x-rays, along with patient data for later viewing. This is especially important for patients living in rural areas, or who are too ill to travel great distances to visit a specialist or clinic. The specialist can easily control the distant patient side camera, share their PC content, and access browser-based applications like EMR/EHR, PACS, and lab reports. Physicians can provide their expertise even from home and provide accurate examinations.

3. Patient education – Through video conferencing, the patients with chronic conditions can have their questions answered and be given more extensive medical knowledge via our interactive technology. These patients can be provided with a specialist opinion from a large medical center, or suggested a telehealth solution to explore other treatment options.

4. Extend Medical Education and Training to unreachable locations – Video conference enables medical teaching staff to demonstrate techniques and skills to medical students or to doctors renewing their medical license, continuing medical education for health professionals and special medical education seminars for individuals and groups in remote locations.

Healthcare professionals can use their PCs for high definition video calls with colleagues from anywhere. The physician or practitioner can easily control the far-end camera, do Pan-tilt-zoom on camera for a complete view and share content live over video file sharing.

5. Attend video CME events from your home office or desktop

6. Conduct video grand rounds sharing PC content, live patient encounters, or recorded procedures

7. Video connect to nursing schools for up to date training and medical information

8. Effective Administration across all branches – Conduct administrative training and medical education using live or streaming video.

9. Advanced knowledge sharing practices – Physicians who practice out of large medical centers use video conferencing solutions to share healthcare information with physicians working in other areas of the country. For example, Dr A Reddy, in Hyderabad give lectures on cardiology, oncology, and diabetes to physicians around the world, from his home setup.

10. Pharmaceutical Sales & Training – Pharmaceutical companies typically hold between 3 and 4 meetings for field personnel per year to update sales and marketing strategies, bring new products to market, re-certify personnel on compliance and regulatory practices, and potentially to roll-out new hardware or software for sales force productivity. With medium and larger companies, this can mean hundreds, even thousands of employees at a single meeting.

It is not difficult to imagine the costs of travel, lodging, and training facilities for meetings of this size. Also, the amount of time lost in transit to and from the meeting can be anywhere from a few hours to an entire day. In a case study performed to compare various video conference solutions to in-person meetings, the online alternatives realized a 66-95% savings over face-to-face meetings Pharmaceutical companies could realize tremendous savings implementing web conferencing solutions in place of even a portion of their face-to-face meetings.

April 5, 2020 Posted by kyu7

Today, the cost of health care around the world is rising and an accident or unforeseen illness can lead to high financial catastrophe as well. A short term visitors medical insurance can provide a comprehensive temporary visitor health insurance or visitor medical insurance that protects you from the catastrophic costs of unexpected medical expenses.

The visitor insurance allows you to use your own doctors and hospitals. The temporary visitors insurance covers the physician services, X-rays, inpatient hospital stays, laboratory services, outpatient-inpatient hospital surgeries, post surgery nursing care and rehabilitation up to a duration of upper limit of around $2 million.

The Short term insurance or visitor health insurance offer coverage that can easily last up to six months. It is a good solution for people between jobs or those waiting for some other visitor health insurance or visitor medical insurance to start. Typically, temporary or short term visitors medical insurance does not include coverage for preventive care, physicals, immunization, dental or vision care. However, purchasing a short term visitors medical insurance plan will make you ineligible for any guaranteed individual health plans commonly referred to as HIPAA plans. These plans are generally expensive and are intended for people having a pre-existing medical condition. If you wish to maintain your eligibility for the HIPAA plans then you must not purchase the short-term visitors insurance.

If you are waiting for insurance coverage, switching jobs, have been laid off or are a seasonal employee or overseas student, then this short term visitor insurance is a very good option for you. All these conditions require the visitors insurance for a short time. That is why; you should purchase the short-time visitor medical insurance or any other visitor insurance. When you are in such situation, you will require an affordable insurance that can offer a peace of mind to your family members.

For people in transition, short term health insurance is the ticket. Short term health visitor insurance is usually bought in one-month increments. All you need to do is to read all the limitations and the exclusions that are specified on your policy form. You must clear all your doubts with the help of your agent. Taking your agent’s advice before you buy any insurance is a really good idea.

The short term visitors medical insurance works like an indemnity plan which usually gives you the freedom to go to any doctor or specialist that you want. However, most plans require pre-certification except in the time of emergencies. These pre-certification rules need you to get a pre-certification from the insurer before you are hospitalized. If you fail to pre-certify then you may not be covered by the insurance.

Surgery, hospital care, emergency, diagnostic tests, prescription drugs, follow-up office visits and yet some degree of mental health care is incorporated under most health policies even though they might come with certain sub-limits or special conditions.
