  • Anew report, published in Health Affairs on July 28th, paints a daunting picture. Health spending will rise by 5.8% each year from 2010 to the end of 2020, according to actuaries at the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In 2020 health care will account for one-fifth of America’s economy. The federal government will pay for a greater share than ever before.http://www.economist.com/node/21524889
  • The Obama administration proposed much-anticipated rules Thursday to spur changes in the way that health care for older Americans is organized and paid for. Here are key details:1 What does it mean? The rules lay out a path for doctors, hospitals and other providers of care to form teams called "accountable care organizations," which, supporters say, would save money by better coordinating medical services for Medicare patients. Under the rules, teams that treat patients for less money would be rewarded financially by the government if they also meet certain measures of quality.2 What are ACOs? They are a form of managed care that differs from health maintenance organizations, which were widely unpopular. ACOs are run by doctors or hospitals, rather than by insurance companies. Some ACOs already have sprung up, but the federal law enacted a year ago to overhaul the nation's health care system tries to spur their development by weaving them into the large Medicare program. To qualify as an ACO, the rules say, the doctors or hospitals that run one must be able to provide primary care for at least 5,000 patients.3 Who would be affected? The Obama administration hopes many of the more than 45 million seniors and others who rely on Medicare will ultimately get their care this way; the administration's early estimates are that 1.5 million to 4 million people would participate by 2014. But it remains unclear how many doctors will sign up to start ACO's next year.4 How much would be saved? Health and Human Services officials predicted Thursday that the Medicare ACOs will save the financially strained program $510 million to $960 million during the first three years after they go into effect next January.5 What do patients have to do? Unlike in Medicare Advantage, the managed-care part of Medicare, patients will not sign up for an accountable care organization. Instead, they will be assigned to one after the fact if their primary doctor belongs to it. The rules call for patients to be told whether their main doctors belong to an ACO.6 What do critics say? Some doctors fear that the new approach will unfairly give the advantage to larger systems that can afford the computerized databases and other resources needed to coordinate care with hospitals and specialists. Critics have worried that the arrangements could become large health-care monopolies that could suppress competition for patients and, as a result, drive up costs.7 What do supporters say? Donald Berwick, a Health and Human Services administrator, said ACOs would help unite what has been fragmented care for older patients who have several chronic medical problems, which sometimes are treated by doctors who do not communicate with one another. He said ACOs encourage doctors, hospitals, nurses and other care-givers to share medical records, emphasize preventive care and "invest in keeping people healthy.”8 How do the rules help new ACOs? Unlike well-developed ACOs, newer organizations will be shielded from any downside risk for the first two years.9 How will quality be assessed? The 65 standards by which an ACO's quality will be judged fall into five areas. They are patients' experiences in getting care; the extent to which care is coordinated; patients' safety; the degree of emphasis on preventive health; and the effectiveness in treating patients who are sick and frail. Other rules are intended to prevent doctors or other care providers that band together from violating antitrust laws.

  • Major U.S. health insurers, including Aetna Inc., Humana Inc. and WellPoint Inc., are retooling to become more than just health plans, in the wake of the federal health-care overhaul that is changing the rules for the industry’s core business.Diversification plans, touted in meetings with investors this year, include stepped up acquisitions and partnerships that will allow the companies to employ doctors directly, deliver health-information technologies, and participate in new hospital-doctor groups known as accountable-care organizations.Wall Street Journal; May 12, 2011
  • SET-UP SERVICES
  • Natural HealthlinkA study published in the Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association found that 21.3% of community-dwelling patients 65 years or older were using at least one drug inappropriately prescribed. Moreover, many of these drugs have side effects or interactions. Natural Healthlink is a program to help patients reduce their reliance on prescription drugs. The program ensures that the drugs patients are taking are necessary, and helps patients shift towards natural alternatives wherever possible.
  • NuSkin - AgeLocPartnered with the Stanford School of Medicine, Nu Skin's product line, AgeLoc, is an anti-aging product platform and the outcome of 27 years of nutriceutical research. AgeLoc technology identifies, targets, and resets youth gene clusters containing multiple genes, literally reversing the signs of aging. The unique aspect of AgeLoc is that it identifies the sources, our genes, and through the introduction of nutriceutical formulas, changes the activity level of targeted genes.Doctors will benefit from offering NuSkin’s products because it represents a cash sale. The benefits of receiving income from channels that need little or no day to day attention is what large wealth is based on. The doctor can reasonably expect to recoup his investment and start turning a profit well within the first year. NuSkin creates a revenue stream independent of mandated reimbursements rates.
  • YMCAResearch at the National Cancer Institute suggests that daily exercise and social interaction are both shown to decrease the risk of deadly and costly diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. YMCA is national leader in physical fitness and community programs with over 2,600 facilities offering physical, recreational, nutritional, and educational activities, many of which are targeted at the health and wellness of seniors. YMCA also offers programs, such as, free yoga, cycling, Zumba, Tai-Chi, Qi-Gong as well as aquatic exercise programs that focus on wellness or keeping seniors active in spirit, mind, and body. YMCAs also provide a social gathering place for seniors, as well as social programs, camping trips, special events, presentations, and personal assistance, such as, legal assistance and health counseling.YMCA has agreed to offer its corporate discount rate of $45/month per patient to each of our ACOs. Patients who visit their YMCA 12 times per month will have their gym membership paid for by the ACO. ACOS will not be liable for gym dues when patients who enroll in the program do not visit 12 times per month. The patient who does not meet the required amount will be ineligible for the program in subsequent months unless they re-apply.

    • 63. The only way to fill beds under such a scenario is to compete for patients.
    • 64. Therefore a well-designed marketing and PR campaign must be an integral component of any ACO.</li></ul>ASO partner organizations BannerCaswell Productions and Ethnic Media Marketing Inc. have a combined 35-year track record in health media.

    • 69. ASO History (2006 – 2011)<br /><ul><li>In 2006, Woody Anderson began developing an HMO strategy that incorporated a wellness program that focused on travel medicine and clinical trials – as a way to reduce the cost of American healthcare and increase the quality to the patient.
    • 70. In 2008, he expanded into the emerging field of Adult Stem Cell Therapy with RNL BIO.
    • 71. In September 2009, Congress passed the H.R.3590 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and Woody’s strategy shifted from HMO to ACO development in California.
    • 72. In June, 2011, the strategy expanded nationally to cover existing ACOs under development as well as to establish new ACOs… and the ASO was formed.</li>
