Reactions mixed to CMS decision to release payment data
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
For the first time since Jimmy Carter was president, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has posted physician fee-for-service payment data to its website for public review and analysis. While researchers and number crunchers applaud the move, some in organized medicine are issuing warnings that the data should be used with caution as it can be misleading when taken out of context. CMS made the file available with a caveat that there are limitations to the data — a point with which the American Medical Association agrees, which is why it has successfully advocated for more than three decades to keep it private.

    How paper can help point-of-care diagnostics
    By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
    Noncommunicable diseases or chronic diseases are responsible for 36 million deaths per year, and the majority of these deaths have been reported in low- and middle-income countries. There is a growing need for the development of low-cost, fast, noninvasive methodologies to diagnose and treat these classes of disease. And there is great potential for point-of-care diagnostics in resource-limited settings. Inexpensive and easy to use, paper-based diagnostics have recently received a lot of attention.
