  • Exposure to prenatal stress linked to obesity risk in adulthood
    An analysis of data on nearly 120,000 young men in Denmark found that those born to mothers exposed to stressful situations, such as the death of a close relative or husband, while pregnant were more likely to be overweight than men born to women without such exposure. The findings were published in the journal PLOS ONE. Science World Report (6/16) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Poll finds increased cloud utilization among providers
    Data from a HIMSS Analytics survey indicate 83% of responding health care providers use services based in the cloud, and many have plans for greater utilization of cloud-based services in the future. However, about two-thirds of cloud users reported hurdles such as cost, privacy and security, and poor customer service. (6/16) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Survey: Few docs seek government work, complicating VA care
    A Medicus Firm survey revealed only 2% of responding physicians expressed interest in employment with the military or another government setting, complicating staffing for Department of Veterans Affairs facilities. As a result, "many VA facilities are forced to rely on locum tenens physician staffing, which further breaks down communication, continuity of care, and systemic accountability," said Medicus President Jim Stone.

Editor's Note 
  • Correction
    A story in Sunday's DiabetesPro SmartBrief Special Report mischaracterized Marjorie Cypress' address. She warned attendees about losing the war against diabetes and encouraged more activism by health care professionals to help address the increasing rates of obesity and diabetes in the U.S. She did not say that the fight against diabetes is a losing battle. SmartBrief sincerely regrets the error.
    For more, read the coverage of her talk in the official meeting newspaper Diabetes Dispatch. LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
