  • S.D. center takes team approach to preventing amputations
    Sanford Health's new Limb Preservation Center in Sioux Falls, S.D., plans to use a coordinated approach to prevent amputations in high-risk patients. Vascular surgeons, an advanced-trained podiatrist and wound-care specialists will coordinate care with other specialists in infectious disease, plastic surgery, orthopedics, endocrinology, cardiology, nephrology and rehabilitation. "Our mission to protect, prevent and save function in the legs and toes is truly about keeping our patients as mobile as possible," vascular surgeon Patrick Kelly said.

  • Change fee-for-service model to cut spending, report advises
    Health care payment models that reimburse based on services rendered should be replaced with a blended model, according to a report from the National Commission on Physician Payment Reform. A more efficient model would reimburse better for diagnostics and management, incorporate quality metrics into reimbursement rates, eliminate differential payments based on facility, encourage small organizations to share resources and include fixed payments for certain patients.

  • CDC asks health care facilities to help control superbug
    The CDC is asking hospitals, long-term acute-care facilities and nursing homes to adopt practices that prevent carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae outbreaks. CRE bloodstream infections kill up to half the patients who get them. Best practices include washing hands, segregating patients with CRE, and designating staff, rooms and equipment to treat CRE patients exclusively, the CDC says.
