The crisis is most acute in nursing, with an estimated 1.2 million nurses needed to replace those leaving this year, in a field where the average age is significantly higher (50 years) than the average age workers (42 years old). Tyler said the first step to solving this problem is to understand what motivates nurses to choose the profession.

“Nurses, in particular, do it because they really care about people,” Tyler said. Making sure their working conditions help them as much as possible – through fair pay, meaningful benefits – gives them a way to focus on their patients and not on whether a move to an intercity hospital is what that they need.

Tim Glowa, director of human capital services at Grant Thornton, said hospitals also need to broaden the candidate pool, which means considering international talent. Tyler said one of the few ways the government can help health care is by making it easier to accredit workers who cross international borders for jobs.

Fortunately, people drawn to health care are naturally resilient and optimistic. And, more fortunately still, there are reasons for optimism.

Where does it hurt? Find and treat pain points

The key to winning as an employer is to think like a marketer. Best practice is to survey employees and hold focus groups to determine what matters to them, including benefits, and satisfaction levels. You can then estimate the likelihood that a given employee will leave your organization and take the appropriate steps to retain them.

Grant Thornton’s study found that among healthcare workers, the top three stressors are personal debt, medical issues and mental health. It’s a valuable starting point for thinking about which benefits make the most sense.

Consider, for example, financial coaching for young employees, extra payouts into retirement funds for older workers, meal services for busy parents, and student loan relief for new grads. While hospitals may not offer the option to work from home for all workers, you can offer longer shifts for fewer days. Given the importance of mental health, you can enhance your employee assistance programs and offer services beyond traditional employee supports.

Plasticizers Market 2022 – Opportunities and Strategies – Forecast to 2030

Business Research Company Plasticizers Market 2022 – Opportunities and Strategies – Global Forecast to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, July 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rising demand for plasticizers from the healthcare sector is expected to propel the growth of the plasticizers market in the coming years. Medical product manufacturing companies are increasingly using flexible plasticized PVC in the production of products such as blood bags, biohazard containment structures, IV tubing and many more. For example, around 170 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand have accepted IV bags, face masks and oxygen tubes for recycling. The Vinyl Council of Australia is in charge of this program, which is funded by Baxter, a medical device company that also sponsors a recycling program in Guatemala. According to the plasticizers market overview, the growing demand for plasticizers from the healthcare industry is driving the growth of the market.

Environmentally friendly plasticizers are a key trend shaping the outlook for the plasticizers market. Eco-friendly plasticizers are organic esters that can be amplified into polymers to improve the flexibility and stiffness of the final product through internal alteration of the polymer morphology. According to the growth of plasticizer market trends, eco-friendly plasticizers are biodegradable and have all the properties of a plasticizer. They are generally inert materials with low vapor pressure and high boiling point. Due to these factors, traditional plasticizers (plasticizers based on phthalates) have been increasingly replaced by environmentally friendly plasticizers.

Ladder works is a publishing platform for various picture books and online programs whose mission is to empower more than one million children to become social entrepreneurs. Our current series features our interplanetary journalist Spiffy’s interviews with inspiring social entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial ecosystem builders advancing the UN SDGs.

Good morning! My name is Spiffy, I’m an interplanetary journalist. I spoke with innovators around the world working on good health and well-being. One such person is Anthony Scarpone-Lambert, co-founder and CEO of Lumify, who agreed to speak to me today.

Nice : Welcome, Anthony! Glad to have you here. What challenge is Lumify addressing?

Anthony: Thanks for inviting me, Spiffy, hi everyone! My name is Anthony and I am a registered nurse and co-founder and CEO of Lumify. While working in an emergency department during the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt frustrated with the difficulty of accessing the equipment and resources I needed to excel. I saw my nursing peers underutilize resources, leading to us feeling burnt out and overwhelmed. I knew there had to be a better way! That’s why I created Lumify, a digital home for healthcare professionals that unifies everything we need on one web and mobile platform. With Lumify, healthcare workers can buy our equipment, find continuing education, exchange tips with their peers, schedule therapy, and more!

Nice : What motivated you to do it?

Anthony: I was driven to create Lumify to solve problems I encountered as a frontline nurse. A thought I often thought about was that healthcare workers look after others, but who looks after them? My personal passion for supporting my fellow healthcare professionals motivates me every day to continue working hard to achieve Lumify’s mission of ensuring that all healthcare professionals have the equipment and resources they need to excel at the bedside and beyond. Starting a business, especially as a young person, was not easy. There are constant ups and downs, obstacles and stressors. However, my unwavering desire to have a positive impact on the lives of healthcare workers has always kept me going, even in the most difficult times.

Nice : Can you tell me how you and the company are moving towards a fairer world?

Anthony: This year alone, nearly two million healthcare workers quit their jobs, and a recent survey of 1,000 healthcare workers found that 28% had quit because of burnout. To make matters more urgent, a recent report by the World Health Organization noted that there is a projected shortage of 5.7 million nurses by 2030. As a nurse myself, I have seen first hand the lack of support for healthcare workers and how this exacerbates burns. out. When healthcare workers are not supported, patient health outcomes decline. That’s why at Lumify, we work to create a world where all healthcare workers feel supported, allowing us to excel and provide the best care to our communities.

Nice : Is there a recent Lumify milestone or initiative you want to share?

Anthony: We founded Lumify just over a year ago; however, we have already served 55,000 healthcare workers and over 250 healthcare systems. The company’s impact on healthcare is huge and we’re just getting started! Studies show that when healthcare workers are supported, patient health outcomes improve. While many healthcare startups focus directly on patient care, we understand the importance of supporting healthcare workers first in order to positively impact care at all levels.

Nice : Please share an experience where you faced failure and didn’t give up. What did you learn from this?

Anthony: Growing up, I was a performer on Broadway. I performed in two shows when I was 12. The road was filled with failed auditions, rejections, and days when I didn’t feel good enough. One particular failure I remember was my audition for Matilda. While my dancing was perfect, my voice broke on the last note when I sang the audition song. I remember the casting directors’ smiles quickly spilling over. Shortly after, I was rejected. My time on Broadway taught me an important lesson: the power of courage. Courage is a combination of passion and perseverance to achieve a goal. You don’t have to be the most talented or smartest person in the room to achieve your goals. You just need to keep it grainy.

Nice : What have you unexpectedly learned from someone recently?

Anthony: Recently, I heard about the principle of paramecium from Angela Duckworth, an American scholar, psychologist, and popular science author. The principle of paramecium is based on paramecium, a eukaryotic organism that is only one-fifth of a millimeter long. Although a brainless single cell, the paramecium survives and thrives using one basic principle: if things look up, keep swimming in that direction, and if not, change course. Dr. Duckworth relates this principle to life. If you don’t have your whole life mapped out right now, that’s okay! If you feel lost or stuck, try something new. If you feel things are improving, continue in that direction.

Nice : I learned something new today! Is there anything else you would like to tell our audience?

Anthony: I have often been confronted with the impostor syndrome throughout my life. Imposter syndrome involves feelings of self-doubt despite accomplishments, experiences, and upbringing. While my peers often saw me as a smart, outgoing, and talented member of the community, I often didn’t feel good enough. I hope my story reminds you that no one is perfect and has it all figured out. Rather than comparing yourself to others, focus on working hard to achieve your goals and striving to have a positive impact on our world. You have this!

Nice : We all have that! Thank you for speaking with me today, Anthony, it was an honor!

Anthony Scarpone-Lambert, BSN, RN, is the co-founder and CEO of Luminous, the digital home of healthcare professionals. Anthony grew up as a Broadway performer and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He is the first nurse to receive the President Penn Innovation Award, and Lumify is the first company entirely run by nurses and backed by Y Combinator.(Nominated by Lorenzo Thione at Gaingels.

Assisted living communities, continuing care retirement communities and skilled nursing facilities are seeing a recovery in the workforce, according to a new report from the National Investment Center for Aged Care and Housing slower than other health sectors.

In a market trends blog, NIC senior data analyst Omar Zahraoui compared employment patterns, including workforce contraction and recovery and wage increases, since March 2020 in long-term care sectors with other adjacent sectors of the healthcare industry.

Referring to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Zahraoui said the number of workers in the retirement community in assisted living and continuing care dropped significantly during the height of the pandemic – 7.5% for March assisted living. 2020 to November 2021 and a drop of 13.9% for CCRCs. from March 2020 to January 2022. Skilled nursing experienced a 15.1% decline in its workforce from March 2020 to March 2022.

Faster recovery in assisted living

On a positive note, the Assisted Living and CPAB sectors have seen total employment increase by 1.8% and 0.8%, respectively, in recent months from lows related to the pandemic. But employment figures remain well below pre-pandemic levels of March 2020, at -5.8% for assisted living facilities and -13.2% for CCRCs. The skilled nursing sector remains at 14.7% below pre-pandemic employment levels.

“These statistics show that assisted living is seeing a relatively rapid recovery in the workforce compared to CCRC and skilled nursing,” Zahraoui said, adding that data from NIC MAP Vision shows that occupancy and assisted living applications also recover faster than for skilled nursing and CCRC.

Adjacent health industries – including home care services, general medical and surgical hospitals, individual and family services and doctors’ offices – fell in the early months of the pandemic but began to recover rapidly , said Zahraoui. Home health and individual and family services took two years to return to pre-pandemic levels, while the assisted living, CCRC and skilled nursing workforce did not only recently started to recover.

BLS data from May showed that total employment in some of these sectors exceeded pre-pandemic levels in March 2020, at 1% for home health, 1.5% for individual and family services and 4.4% for medical practices.

Other industries are seeing success in recruitment and retention

“The relatively rapid recovery in these healthcare industries suggests that these sectors have been successful in attracting and retaining workers during the pandemic – some of whom may have been part of the elderly housing and skilled nursing workforce before. the pandemic – and demand has been relatively strong for skilled nursing and senior housing,” Zahraoui said.

Among the factors influencing the workforce recovery for assisted living facilities, CCRC and skilled nursing providers, he said, are macroeconomic market conditions, the continuing COVID pandemic -19, workforce size and growth, demand patterns and competition.

“The relationship between labor and demand in the senior housing and skilled nursing sectors has never been strong and will remain critical,” he said. “The pandemic has shown that residents and staff are part of the success equation for a smooth recovery.”

Higher salaries in skilled nursing

The elderly housing and skilled nursing sectors have responded to the workforce crisis by implementing the largest wage increases in the health industries, but a faster recovery in nursing care. home and individual and family services revealed that the drivers of workforce recovery go beyond competitive wages, Zahraoui said.

Average hourly wages in assisted living facilities and CCRCs increased by 17.1% and 16%, respectively, from March 2020 to April 2022, while skilled nursing saw their wages increase by 18.2%.

Skilled nursing workers now earn 17% more than assisted living workers and 8.7% more than CCRC workers. Skilled nursing workers also earn 4.3% more than workers in home health services and 19.7% more than workers in individual and family services.

“The job isn’t done yet” was a key part of a White House roundtable this week marking the fifth anniversary of a task force’s urgent recommendations to improve healthcare cybersecurity.

Biden administration officials, cybersecurity experts and industry leaders gathered in Washington for a briefing and roundtable to take stock of developments since the “Cybersecurity Improvement Report”. in healthcare” from June 2017, warning that healthcare cybersecurity “is in critical condition”.

The report contained dozens of recommendations developed with input from the Department of Health and Human Services and public and private sector safety experts.

Some experts, including people who worked on the 2017 report, told Information Security Media Group that the healthcare sector has since made improvements.

But the sector — especially during the coronavirus pandemic — has in many ways slipped into a weaker cybersecurity position, says at least one member of the original report’s task force.

“We’ve seen hundreds of healthcare delivery organizations disrupted by ransomware attacks,” says Josh Corman, who ended an 18-month tenure as chief healthcare industry strategist earlier this year. Health at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency on issues related to coronavirus and public safety.

The 2017 report was a requirement of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act 2015 (see: Analysis: Are HHS cybersecurity recommendations feasible?).

Among those present at this week’s event celebrating the report’s wooden anniversary were members of the executive committee of the Health Sector Coordinating Council’s Cybersecurity Task Force, said Erik Decker, CISO of Intermountain Health and committee chair.

Participants “committed to continue to evaluate the 2017 report, to identify areas where it could be updated, and to align with establishing a system that ‘you must all beat us to beat one of us,'” he said.

Another member of the HHS cybersecurity task force, former health IT director David Finn, who did not attend the White House meeting, told ISMG he had an assessment. mixed results of the past five years of cybersecurity efforts.

“There has been a lot of progress in the security industry since the report was released, less because it was passed and implemented by Congress than because it galvanized the industry to an incredible degree. “said Finn, who is now vice president. education and networking associations within the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives, a healthcare CIO and CISO professional organization.

Neither HHS nor CISA immediately responded to Information Security Media Group’s request for comment on the meeting and for additional details on what was discussed.

More attention needed

The need for continued attention to industry cybersecurity practices is evident. For example, during the ongoing pandemic, the sector has had to deal with record numbers of patient cases and the rapid adoption of less approved technologies for teleworking and telehealth, while also dealing with staff and resources. record – while dealing with record volumes of attacks by adversaries to disrupt and delay patient care.

Healthcare organizations unable to offer their services to more traditional, higher-margin patients during the pandemic – such as elective surgeries and non-coronavirus elective care – have suffered financially, leading to further cuts in areas such as safety, Corman told ISMG.

The persistent divide between large organizations that nonetheless possess more resources than their smaller counterparts also remains a concern, Decker says.

“We are concerned about the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’, especially small organizations that are at risk but lack the resources to address the cyber threats we face,” he said. “It is at the center of our concerns as we continue our efforts.”

One thing HHS could do to improve things is finally release a formal cyber incident response plan for the industry, Corman says.

Among the 2017 task force recommendations, HHS was to identify critical incident response plans for use by the healthcare industry. “HHS, from an incident response perspective, was unprepared for what we faced during the pandemic,” he says.

A reading of the White House meeting reports that Andrea Palm, deputy secretary of HHS, told attendees that the department was working to finalize incident response guidelines.

Another ongoing challenge is the industry’s stubborn perception that cybersecurity resides in its own bubble and does not consider the quality of patient care delivery, Finn says.

“Cybersecurity is still considered an IT and security ‘problem’. Although we are making progress in this area, the industry has been slow to recognize that this is a business risk issue,” he says. “Security does not understand or experience the impacts of an attack. Clinical care and quality of care suffer.”

The task force report addressed related governance issues, and while many of these recommendations were addressed by government entities, “we don’t see the same attention from individual vendors or business associates,” says- he.

Progress axes

Some members of the task force claim that the health sector has achieved certain achievements such as generally higher levels of awareness and attention.

Perhaps the most significant advancements are in medical device security and Internet of Things medical technology, according to Finn. “The task force report has highlighted the magnitude of the problem and the multitude of unique needs and issues. time was a joke.”

Device makers, hospital administrators, clinicians, biomedical engineers and computer scientists and security officials have understood they should work together, while the Food and Drug Administration in particular has provided more guidance. detailed information on cybersecurity, he says. “The mission isn’t over, but it’s getting the kind of attention it needs.”


HHS has been working to find deeper collaboration with the healthcare industry on issues related to cybersecurity. For example, in 2020, HHS launched the Healthcare Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center. The center is responsible for directing HHS’s sharing of cybersecurity information, including mitigation resources. It frequently distributes educational material as well as notices related to the latest threats.

Corman says that over the past five years, among the most notable developments has been the recognition by healthcare, as well as the federal government, of the importance of software bills of materials.

President Joe Biden’s 2021 Executive Order on Cybersecurity mandated SBOMs for products sold to federal agencies by contractors. But even before that, some in government and health sectors had been touting the importance of SBOMs for several years, Corman says.

Most notably, this includes the FDA, which recommended “cybersecurity nomenclatures” for medical devices in draft premarket guidance released in 2016, then changed that for SBOMs in updated draft guidance released in April. , he says (see: FDA document details cyber expectations of device makers).

Another major breakthrough highlighted by Corman is changing federal regulations on physician self-referral to help smaller, underfunded health care providers.

HHS amendments to the Stark Act allow large hospitals and health care delivery systems to donate cybersecurity software, hardware and services to smaller affiliated clinics and medical practices without violating federal antitrust laws. -bribes (see: HHS rule changes allow cybersecurity donations).

Whether you’re talking about the business side of healthcare or the day-to-day work of healthcare professionals, adopting technology solutions is a necessity for achieving faster results, improving patient outcomes and saving time. But beyond that, technology has the potential to revolutionize the field of patient-provider interactions, making it easier for providers and enabling more personalized interactions with patients.

In an increasingly technology-driven world, it is imperative that the healthcare industry not only sees technology as a tool for diagnosis or care, but as an essential part of a more holistic approach constantly evolution. Health leaders need to think broadly and holistically when it comes to incorporating technology into their planning for the future. Leveraging the possibilities of using technology to save time, provide more accurate care, and personalize care delivery will inevitably be the future of care.

Personalized care

The technology has already shown its potential to help with personalization through machines and devices that provide more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. As technology advances, the possibilities for personalizing healthcare are increasing.

In terms of administrative work and processing patient data, technology-assisted data assessments can help providers better understand patient needs and adapt their care plans. New technological tools are helping to analyze patient data and make connections between patient records that medical professionals could not on their own. These technology tools provide more context and detail for professionals to develop specific plans that benefit their patients, while ensuring that all aspects of their patient’s story are considered. While investing in systems for this level of care may seem daunting in the immediate future, the long-term benefits offer enough potential for a significant return on investment.

Automate processes to save time

Healthcare professionals spend a considerable amount of time on administrative tasks such as updating patient data and records or managing appointment schedules. In 2021, physicians reported spending an average of 15.6 hours per week on paperwork and other administrative tasks. This time can be used for active patient care through the use of technology. Technology solutions save suppliers time by helping to make these administrative processes more accurate and efficient.

New web-based applications and solutions, such as Iqvia, a healthcare information technology service, allow patients to virtually access their own medical records outside of appointments. These services also make it easier for patients to schedule appointments, make payments, and view test results. Giving patients the tools to engage in their own care not only increases patient empowerment, but also saves providers time by reducing unnecessary administrative communications with patients.

In terms of appointments with providers, telehealth options have been on the rise since the pandemic has increased the risk of in-person appointments. But telehealth options have benefits beyond health and safety concerns. In general, these solutions help providers maximize the time they have reserved for patients and reduce transportation-related appointment cancellations by reducing barriers preventing patients from getting to appointments. As we move into an environment where patients are more willing to visit doctors’ offices or hospitals and are not turning to telehealth out of fear, health officials should not abandon telehealth options as a pure COVID-focused innovation, but rather continue to invest and think more broadly about what the real possibilities of telehealth look like in a stabilized public health environment.

Optimize accessibility via the cloud

Cloud-based technology also offers providers the ability to operate more efficiently through easy access to patient information. Through the use of cloud technology, healthcare professionals can access data and files anywhere they have an internet connection. In addition to accessing patient information, cloud-based technology also makes it easier for providers to collaborate and share data. Cloud computing is accelerating the sharing of electronic records between providers and facilities, enabling closer collaboration between professionals regardless of location.

As our world continues to transform into a remote landscape where location is no longer a key factor in accessing patient information, healthcare providers must continue to seek cloud-based solutions for patient data. patients to ensure that patient treatment is not slowed down due to an inability to take advantage of all possible technological solutions.

Rely on wearable technology

Patients can also share data with their providers from anywhere, in real time, through gadgets such as wearable health devices that use cloud-based technology. Wearable healthcare technology has a variety of uses when it comes to providers’ ability to care for their patients. Throughout the pandemic, the wearable tech space has seen an acceleration of new uses, including real-time COVID-19 symptom monitoring, allowing providers to help patients before things get out of hand.

Some tech companies, such as BioIntelliSense, specialize in wearable health devices that monitor patients’ vital signs in real time to provide accurate health information and detect early trends that could indicate something more serious. These cost-effective solutions allow patients to access medical-grade care in the comfort of their own home. Especially in an era of increasing remote patient care, providers have a responsibility to determine how best to use wearable health technology to aid in more accurate preventive and diagnostic care for their patients.

Ultimately, success in healthcare comes from a variety of factors, the most important of which is the hard work of the people who make it work. Some may think that technology might dampen the level of human connection that makes the healthcare service what it is, but through thoughtful application, technology has the ability to personalize healthcare provider administration, speed the process of finding solutions and allowing greater accessibility of the moment. and where providers can help their patients.

Land & Buildings to vote against Healthcare Realty Trust’s proposed acquisition of Healthcare Trust of America https://ipmsguatemala.org/land-buildings-to-vote-against-healthcare-realty-trusts-proposed-acquisition-of-healthcare-trust-of-america/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://ipmsguatemala.org/land-buildings-to-vote-against-healthcare-realty-trusts-proposed-acquisition-of-healthcare-trust-of-america/ Land & Buildings said Thursday it would vote against Healthcare Realty Trust’s proposed acquisition of Healthcare Realty Trust of America at a July 15 special meeting, and it urged other shareholders to follow suit.

Land & Buildings said Thursday it would vote against Healthcare Realty Trust’s proposed acquisition of Healthcare Realty Trust of America at a July 15 special meeting, and it urged other shareholders to follow suit.

In a presentation released yesterday, Land & Buildings said one of the reasons it opposes the acquisition is that there was a “fault process and valuation” of a $5 billion all-cash offer that Toledo, OH-based real estate investment firm Welltower made after Healthcare Realty Trust announced plans to acquire Healthcare Trust of America.

“We see little strategic rationale for Healthcare Realty’s acquisition of Healthcare Trust of America and find it baffling that HR [Healthcare Realty] rejected Welltower’s cash offer to pursue a value-destroying transaction,” Jonathan Litt, founder and chief investment officer of Land & Buildings, said in a statement.

On March 28, Healthcare Realty Trust announced that it had received an unsolicited, non-binding proposal from a REIT to acquire all of the company’s outstanding common shares for $31.75 per share. Welltower CEO Shankh Mitra later confirmed his company was the bidder, according to Bloomberg.

Land & Buildings also argues that Healthcare Realty Trust’s valuation is likely to be adversely affected by Healthcare Trust of America’s “historic business valuations and substandard assets” and Healthcare Realty’s “history of underperformance”.

Land & Buildings said it believed it had the backing of other shareholders not to support the proposed acquisition.

“Many other HR shareholders we have spoken to plan to vote against the deal, and we believe it will be difficult to meet the 2/3 threshold needed for approval at the July 15 special meeting. “, Litt said. “We encourage the board to seriously reconsider whether the path it has chosen is the right one for all shareholders.”

In a statement Wednesday, Nashville, TN-based Healthcare Realty Trust said it remained committed to the transaction.

“The combined company will have unparalleled market scale in concentrated clusters, significant business and operational synergies, a larger development pipeline and a strengthened balance sheet with increased liquidity and better access to capital. The transaction is expected to be accretive through near-term spend synergies, with additional value from operational uplift through large-scale platforms,” the REIT said.
