Marrakech – Israeli newspaper Haaretz has called out the Israeli Population, Immigration, and Borders Authority (PIBA) for failing to publish Arab children’s names in its most recent list of facts on the state of Israel. On PIBA’s list of most popular children’s names, Yosef, Daniel, Uri, Itai, Omer, Adam, Noam, Ariel, Eitan, and David are present, but Mohammed is not. However, Mohammed is the most popular children’s name in the state of Israel, Haaretz pointed out.PIBA said it did not intend to suppress information, and according to Haaretz this is not a case of racism but of denial. It hides the inconvenient fact that the Arab population both in Israel and in the Palestinian State is beginning to grow larger than the Jewish population. This was a courageous piece of journalism by Haaretz, reminding us that some Jewish people may be able to recognize the truth even if the Israeli state cannot. One wonders if the recent bombardment of Gaza against unarmed civilians was an attempt to even the balance. It was, by any standards, a disproportionate response, given the fact that Hamas was firing rockets into Israel. It defies belief that a people who suffered the worst kind of Nazi brutality could perpetrate a similar aggression with tanks and bombs against an unarmed people.Granted, Hamas forces were hidden amongst the population, but the maelstrom unleashed on ordinary Palestinian men, women, and children may at last have stirred the world’s conscience.Such indifference to civilized standards, whether in Syria, Iraq, or Gaza, is still a violence that destroys civilization and builds resentment and hatred for generations. The Zionists continue to seize Palestinian land, and the West, especially the United Kingdom, allowed and enabled them to do it. This is a real blind spot.President Mahmoud Abbas called it genocide, but if you won’t go with that, ethnic cleansing might also apply. What is certain is that after this latest attack on Gaza, things will never be the same. We all have to bear witness to this atrocity and injustice whenever we can.
The two-week 24th conference in Katowice, Poland, of the parties to the UN Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC), technically started on Sunday, but Monday saw the high-level grand opening. It marks the deadline for the 197 parties that signed the Convention, to adopt guidelines for the implementation of the historic 2015 Paris Agreement.In the French capital, three years ago, countries collectively agreed to keep global temperature rises to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and if possible, to limit the rise to 1.5°C. Now, in Poland, they have to agree on how they will achieve this collectively. “We cannot fail in Katowice,” said UN chief Guterres.Kicking off the event, along with several other high-level representatives, he highlighted four key messages for the thousands of representatives of the world’s nations, non-profit organisations, UN agencies, and private sector companies gathered in Katowice.1. ‘We need more action and more ambition’The Secretary-General started by noting that climate change is already “a matter of life and death” for many people, nations and countries of the world, and that the science is telling us we need to move faster.Citing various alarming UN reports – including one on rising global CO2 emissions and another one on increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere – he called on nations to pay attention to the science and step up their pace as well as their ambitions. “Even as we witness devastating climate impacts causing havoc across the world, we are still not doing enough, nor moving fast enough, to prevent irreversible and catastrophic climate disruption,” he stated. “Last year I visited Barbuda and Dominica, which were devastated by hurricanes. The destruction and suffering I saw was heart-breaking,” he explained, noting that “these emergencies are preventable”.He called on the international community to work to ensure that emissions must decline by 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030 and be net zero by 2050, and that renewable energy will need to supply half to two-thirds of the world’s primary energy by 2050 with a corresponding reduction in fossil fuels.“If we fail, the Arctic and Antarctic will continue to melt, corals will bleach and then die, the oceans will rise, more people will die from air pollution, water scarcity will plague a significant proportion of humanity, and the cost of disasters will skyrocket”, he warned the delegates ahead of their negotiations:.2. Implementation guidelines are essential to build trust among nationsStating that “we have no time for limitless negotiations”, the Secretary-General insisted on the need to operationalise the Paris Agreement, and reminded Member States that 2018 is the deadline that they set for themselves to finalise the guidelines for implementation.“We need a unifying implementation vision that sets out clear rules, inspires action and promotes raised ambition, based on the principle of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in light of different national circumstances”, said the UN chief.“We achieved success in Paris because negotiators were working towards a common goal,” he added as he implored the delegated to maintain the same spirit of urgent collaboration to “ensure that the bonds of trust established in Paris will endure.”3. Adequate funding of climate action will be ‘central’“We need concerted resource mobilization and investment to successfully combat climate change,” the Secretary-General told the delegates attending the COP24 grand opening, noting that three quarters of the infrastructure needed by 2050 for climate action still remains to be built. He insisted on the need to focus efforts on five key economic areas: energy, cities, land use, water and industry.“Governments and investors need to bet on the green economy, not the grey,” he explained, stressing the need to embrace carbon pricing (i.e. charging emitters of CO2 for their emissions), eliminate harmful fossil fuel subsidies, and invest in clean technologies.“It also means providing a fair transition for those workers in traditional sectors that face disruption, including through retraining and social safety nets,” he noted, adding that “we also have a collective responsibility to assist the most vulnerable communities and countries – such as small island nations and the least developed countries – by supporting adaptation and resilience.”In 2015, a total of 18 high-income nations committed to providing US$100 billion dollars a year, by 2020, to lower-income nations to support their climate action. Mr. Guterres urged developed nations to deliver on this commitment.He also urged Member States “to swiftly implement the replenishment of the Green Climate Fund. It is an investment in a safer, less costly future”. 4. ‘Climate action makes social and economic sense.’“All too often, climate action is seen as a burden,” said the UN secretary-General, as he explained that “decisive climate action today is our chance to right our ship and set a course for a better future for all”.The UN chief commended cities, regions, civil society and the business community around the world for moving ahead. “What we need is political more will and more far-sighted leadership. This is the challenge on which this generation’s leaders will be judged.According to the recent New Climate Economy report, “ambitious climate action could yield 65 million jobs and a direct economic gain of $26 trillion US dollars compared to business as usual over the next 12 years”.The UN chief stressed the need to ensure that this economic transformation is led with a commitment to gender equality, and the inclusion of youth. “We must start today building the tomorrow we want,” the Secretary-General said.’Audacity’ and ‘five times more ambition’ neededEchoing the UN Secretary-General’s remarks, the Prime Minister of Fiji, Frank Bainimarama, who presided over COP23 called on the world to deliver “five times more ambition, five times more action” and avoid “becoming the generation that betrayed humanity.”The President of the UN General Assembly, Maria Fernanda Espinosa, called for “audacity” in climate action and noted that multilateralism is the only way to reverse the negative effects of global warming.As for the President of this COP, Michał Kurtyka, referring to the mining past of Katowice, he invited the delegates to “pursue a path of deep but just transition” when bringing the Paris agreement to life. Earlier, the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, presented a “Declaration for a Just Transition,”During the grand opening, the World Bank Chief Executive Officer, Kristalina Georgiewa, also announced that the World Bank would will double its current five-year investments towards supporting climate change initiatives by allocation $200 billion from 2020 on. This will include $100 billion from the World Bank directly, half of which will be allocated to mitigation and resilience-buidling initiatives, and another $100 billion from two World Bank Group members — the International Finance Corporation and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency — and private capital.The event closed with an address by the world’s people delivered by world renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough. The statement was inspired by thousands of messages posted by individuals on social media over the past weeks, urging world leaders for climate action.“Their message is clear: time is running out. They want you, the decision makers to act now. They’re behind you, along with the civil society represented here today,” he said.
Phillip Anderson, policy manager at Prostate Cancer UK, said the changes were “catastrophic”.“A budget impact threshold has the potential to throw the brakes on the most effective new treatments and technologies just before they get to patients,” he said.Pharmaceutical companies have warned that they will choose not to launch drugs early in the UK if they will not reach patients for financial reasons. NHS England did not comment on the analysis. Patients could die while waiting for the right treatmentCredit:Paul Grover One in five new medicines on the NHS could be rationed under new plans to save the health service money, meaning patients will have to join a queue to get treatment.Cancer, diabetes and asthma patients are all likely to be hit by the plans, which will affect even drugs that have been ruled cost-effective by medics.Currently people suffering from illness have the right to be treated with drugs that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) says are good value for money. But new affordability criteria will mean that drugs which cost the NHS more than £20million in total each year could be subject to extra delays or restrictions. Analysis conducted by Nice and the pharmaceutical industry, and seen by the Times newspaper, indicates that the new policy will affect 20 per cent of newly-approved medicines, or around 12 types of drugs a year. Campaigners say the changes could mean patients die while they wait for a treatment to become available. Baroness Morgan, chief executive of Breast Cancer Now, said: “We are hugely concerned that the £20million budget impact threshold would be a massive setback for access to new cancer drugs in England.” Cancer, diabetes and asthma patients are all likely to be hit by the plansCredit:Geoffrey Kidd/Alamy Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The tarmac beneath the car melted in the heat of the rush-hour fire, which delayed commuters heading home for the weekend.No-one has been reported injured and the owner is unknown.Identifiable by its distinctive wedge shape and “scissor” doors which open upwards from the bonnet, the Countash is one of the most outlandish and best-loved cars ever built by the Italian marque. The Countach had distinctive three-section windows and scissor doorsCredit:INS News Agency Ltd/INS News Agency Ltd It was produced between 1974 and 1990. The back end of the mid-engined supercar was completely destroyedCredit:INS News Agency Ltd/INS News Agency Ltd It is a sight to bring a tear to the eye of the most hardened petrolhead: what appears to be a classic supercar worth close to half a million pounds, reduced to a burned and melted wreck.In the 1970s and 1980s, the Lamborghini Countach adorned more boys’ bedroom walls than posters of Farrah Fawcett or Samantha Fox.But on Friday this Countach raised temperatures more dangerously, with the back section of the car engulfed in flames so hot they destroyed half the chassis and melted its fat high-performance tyres. The car was removed and no-one is believed to have been injured in the fire near Weston-Super-MareCredit:INS News Agency Lts/INS News Agency Lts US Magazine Sports Car International placed the Countach in its top ten sports for both the 1970s and 1980s. The car, one of only 2000 ever produced, was spotted on the A370 near Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset, burned and gutted.A modern Lamborghini Aventador, the best-selling of the brand’s current models, costs around £275,000; but this classic Countach is worth around £400,000.The powerful mid-mounted V12 engine looks to have been the cause of the fire, which also gutted the red supercar’s luxurious interior.

Mar 21st 2019, 9:24 PM THE METROPOLITAN POLICE have confirmed that one Paris Saint-Germain fan has been arrested in connection with incidents before Thursday’s Women’s Champions League game against Chelsea. PSG travelled to London for the first leg of their quarter final match against the Blues, with the return match scheduled for 27 March. The build-up to the game at Kingsmeadow, however, was marred by reports of criminal damage and disorder levelled against a group of the French team’s fans.Those reports were later confirmed by police sources, who revealed that supporters had carried weapons to the match on board a coach. “Weapons, including knives and knuckledusters, were recovered along with class A drugs,” a statement released by the Met explained.“One man from the coach was arrested for possession of class A drugs and the remaining passengers were escorted from the area by police.”The coach is understood to have travelled from Paris to London overnight carrying the fans, 50 of whom were denied entry to the stadium on Thursday evening. Reports of vandalism at Kingsmeadow emerged as early as 8pm GMT, including a broken door and pro-PSG graffiti daubed on the walls. The fans are believed to be part of a PSG ultras group known for their violent behaviour, according to the BBC. The group has already been banned from attending first-team and youth matches of the Ligue 1 side, but no such prohibition is yet in force for the club’s women’s team. Chelsea and PSG’s clash suffered no delay despite the incidents, with the Blues taking the lead through Hannah Blundell deep into the second half before Erin Cuthbert doubled their advantage in the 88th minute to secure a 2-0 win for Chelsea.Additional reporting by Sinéad FarrellSubscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: 20,552 Views
Internet se prépare au test du protocole IPv6Le Toile va pouvoir tester l’adressage en IPv6 ce mercredi 8 juin, où plusieurs centaines de sites utiliseront ce protocole en plus de l’IPv4.Devant la pénurie annoncée des adresses en IPv4, Internet se prépare au passage en IPv6. Pour cela, plus de 400 sites web recensés par l’Isoc, avec le soutien de poids lourds américains du web (Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Akamai…), vont effectuer une journée de test grandeur nature, explique 01.net. Ils disposeront ainsi d’une double possibilité d’adressage, en IPv6 et en IPv4. Si l’IPv6 est déjà généralisé dans de nombreux réseaux d’opérateurs, c’est donc la première fois qu’il sera utilisé à si grande échelle.Le système IPv6 offre une possibilité infinie d’adresses IP mais se révèle difficile à utiliser à l’heure actuelle à cause de l’incompatibilité entre les deux systèmes d’adressage et à leur nécessaire cohabitation au sein d’Internet, à travers de complexes mécanismes. Pourtant, la pénurie des adresse IPv4 va pousser dans la généralisation de ce protocole existant depuis plus de dix ans mais qui reste peu utilisé par les entreprises du fait de sa complexité de transition.Le 8 juin 2011 à 17:47 • Emmanuel Perrin

Vancouver-based Nautilus, Inc. has pulled ads for its Bowflex equipment brand from the Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.A spokesperson for Nautilus told The Hollywood Reporter that the company buys ad airtime on multiple news networks and does not normally target its ads based on specific programming, but has asked Fox to stop airing its commercials during broadcasts of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”The decision makes Nautilus the latest in a series of advertisers that have dropped the show after host Tucker Carlson stated during last Thursday night’s broadcast that immigration makes the United States “dirtier.”The comment came as part of a segment in which Carlson argued that the United States ought to prioritize skilled and educated immigrants, and stated that U.S. leaders profess a moral obligation to admit poor and less-educated immigrants “even if it makes our own county poorer, dirtier and more divided.”Pacific Life Insurance Company and SmileDirectClub both pulled their ads from the show in the past four days, and Indeed.com pulled its ads a month ago, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump went old school on Friday, calling reporters from The Washington Post and The New York Times to announce that he had ordered a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare pulled from consideration in the House when it became clear there weren’t enough votes for passage.President Donald Trump about the health care overhaul bill, Friday, March 24, 2017, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. rump says he would be willing to reopen negotiations for a health care bill with Democrats if the Affordable Care Act fails.(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)One of those reporters — Robert Costa of the Post — tweeted news from the surprise phone call a minute after getting it while the president was still talking.Trump’s phone calls came amid a day of drama that played out on television screens leading up to an anticipated afternoon vote on one of the Republicans’ enduring campaign promises, to get rid of the insurance law enacted by former President Barack Obama. Congress was debating the measure when it was taken back before a vote.The calls to Costa and Maggie Haberman of the New York Times were surprising given the newspapers’ aggressive coverage of the president. He has consistently derided their “fake news” and mocked the “failing” Times, which has been seeing an increase in subscriptions.Costa wrote in a first-person piece posted on the Post’s web site that when his cell phone rang at 3:31 p.m. EDT, he thought it was a reader complaint because it was a blocked number.“Hello, Bob,” came the president’s voice. “So, we just pulled it.”Costa multi-tasked, interviewing Trump while posting several updates on Twitter.“President Trump just called me, still on phone,” he posted at 3:32. “‘We just pulled it,’ he tells me.”Costa, a national political reporter for the Post, tweeted a stream of updates: “I don’t blame Paul, Trump tells me” and “What a convo. I’ll type it up quick.”CNN ran a screen grab of Costa’s Twitter feed, even though he’s nominally a competitor: Costa also works as an NBC News analyst.Before 5 p.m., he had posted a first-person account of the conversation under the headline: “Hello, Bob: President Trump called my cellphone to say that the health care bill was dead.”Haberman’s first tweet came at 3:52 p.m.: “TRUMP tells me in interview this is now the Democrats’ fault, and that he anticipates that when Obama ‘explodes,’ they will be ready to deal.” She quickly corrected her typo, meaning Obamacare instead of Obama.She wrote on Twitter that Trump had shown uncharacteristic discipline in saying it was the Democrats who had let him down. Besides Twitter, a quote from her interview appeared in the Times’ online coverage of the events. Trump spoke before cameras in the Oval Office about an hour after the phone conversations.It wasn’t Haberman’s first phone interview with the president. She wrote a piece shortly after his inauguration about life in the White House.Later, Haberman offered a Twitter observation about the president: “Trump is not going away this weekend. He was deeply disciplined in phone interviews. The big question is what happens now when he sits in the White House residence and watches television coverage of the bill’s failure.”Based on the media coverage, it won’t be an easy aftermath.“Is there a sense of how ignominious this defeat is?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked correspondent Dana Bash, calling it an embarrassment for House Republicans and the White House.“The president just suffered a terrible defeat,” said MSNBC’s Brian Williams.Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier said “the president took a hit today,” and batted away colleague Eric Bolling’s attempt to pin blame on House Speaker Paul Ryan and Congress, noting Trump had pushed hard for the bill.“When you can’t tell the elevator story about what’s good about the bill for middle America,” Baier said, “you’ve lost.”
PORTLAND, ORE. – In celebration of Black History Month, the University of Louisville men’s basketball team will wear special adidas uniforms inspired by the creativity, passion and expression of the early 20th century’s Harlem Renaissance at the Cardinals’ Feb. 23 game against Virginia in the KFC Yum! Center. UofL’s women’s team will wear the special uniforms for its home game against Boston College the following day on Feb. 24.Throughout the month of February, all adidas Power 5 conference NCAA men’s and women’s basketball teams will wear a head-to-toe uniform inspired by the ballrooms of that era, including Arizona State, Rutgers, North Carolina State, Miami, Mississippi State, Louisville, Kansas, Indiana, Nebraska, Texas A&M, and Georgia Tech. Considered one of the most influential movements in African American history, the Harlem Renaissance was a creative movement that kindled a new cultural identity. In this era, the Renaissance ballroom became a place that epitomized basketball culture as local teams perfected their game on the same wooden floors that were also used for ballroom dance events and jazz shows. Together, the Harlem community infused their spirit of dance & sport within their day to day lives, and created an indisputable marriage between music, culture, and the game. Inspired by the wooden floors of the ballrooms where basketball became culture, each adidas team jersey also includes patterns which mimic the fabrics and prints of the 1920s that became a means of self-expression and community pride. Each uniform features a unique bean stitch texture around the team name, the word “BALLROOM” on the inner waistband of each short, and a “Celebrating Black Culture” patch. The collection also includes a series corresponding footwear silhouettes which echo the colors of the jazz ballrooms so important to the era. Each detail is meant to be an homage to the art, poetry, sounds and sport of the Renaissance, and to those driving their passion forward.”At adidas, we created the Celebrating Black Culture program as a way of honoring our past throughout Black History Month, but also across the entire calendar year,” said Adam Laitsas, Senior Director for adidas Basketball in North America. “We firmly believe that through sport, we have the power to change lives, and we’re humbled to be able to celebrate these historical sport moments through the new Harlem Renaissance collection, and can’t wait to see each team wear these on-court.”Both men’s and women’s basketball teams from each partner school will rock their unique jerseys in-game throughout the month of February, and the full uniforms from a select group of universities are currently on sale on adidas.com. The Red Louisville Cardinals Harlem Renaissance Swingman jersey and shorts are available through the GoCards.com store at this link: https://uofl.me/2GvFll3 .For more information, visit adidas.com/basketball and follow the conversation @adidashoops on Twitter and Instagram.Print Friendly Version Story Links
© 2012 Phys.org Qualcomm’s Halo technology will be fitted on up to ten electric vehicles; this is a wireless technology that Qualcomm purchased last year from the University of Auckland’s HaloIPT. The Halo system, consisting of a charging terminal, flat pad and receiving pad on the car, transmits kilowatts of electricity over the air. There is a charging pad on which EV owners park their vehicles. The pad is activated by the presence of the vehicle, sending a charge through the air gap between the ground pad and the receiving pad. Halo uses electro-magnetic induction to transfer 3, 7 or even 20 kW of power between two coils. Transmission rates are reported as similar to what can be achieved with a traditional cable charger. Qualcomm claims that energy losses are small and as a result the charging method’s efficiency of 90 percent is comparable to conventional charging with a cable.All of the cars chosen for the trial are fully electric. The trial will be ongoing for about two years. In the first phase, the system will be used on vehicles in controlled environments, with ten to 20 charging pads, to help evaluate Halo’s commercial viability. A second round of trials will involve Renault in 2013. Announcing its participation, Jacques Hebrard, vice president of Energy and Environment Advanced Projects director at Renault, said Renault’s entry in the WEVC London trial will complement Renault’s European research and development project with other partners to demonstrate wireless inductive charging of EVS “in a public environment with a high level of performance and safety.” This document is subject to copyright.

(Phys.org) — Renault and Qualcomm this week signed a Memorandum of Understanding that they will cooperate on work at the upcoming London trial of Qualcomm Halo Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC) technology, an event to take place in a few months. Preparations underway for the WEVC trial involve an assembly of government authorities and businesses, to install and test wireless electric cars. UK company Delta Motorsport, an automotive and motorsport engineering consultancy, has agreed to participate in trials carried out on specially adapted E4 coupes, and France-based Renault will use its vehicles too. Qualcomm’s stated goal is to make the charging of electric vehicles simple and effortless, but the two-phase London trials will also provide some much-needed answers by industry players and consumers beyond ease and comfort. The trial will help to evaluate the commercial viability of wireless charging of electric vehicles; to better understand issues in integrating WEVC technology into EVs; the deployment of WEBC in a “megacity”; and to get user feedback on using WEVC-enabled EVs.

An Evolving LexiconOne of the challenges to answering these questions is the ambiguity that may be found in radiology reports, Carrino said. This may occur when radiologists use different terms to mean the same thing, he said.“We haven’t done a good job of harmonizing our lexicon,” he explained, noting after the session that radiologists need to “make sure we have a uniform lexicon that we can define our data structures and identify our workflows.”Although imaging may contribute to only a small part of each dollar spent on healthcare in the U.S., it is widely seen as a major source of health care costs. Most expenditures, according to a slide shown during the session and attributed to America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), are for prescription drugs. But Carrino cited a JAMA report published in 2018 stating that health care utilization in the U.S. was out of step with that of other major countries. The number of imaging exams may not be as important as their collective price, he said during the AHRA session. The key is determining the value of imaging.Comparative research that establishes the contribution of different modalities under different circumstances could help, he said. But such research needs to determine the value of imaging performed during routine practices, not necessarily under ideal circumstances. Although investment in comparative effectiveness research may be important, according to Carrino, so may be the study of patient-centered outcomes measures.

Radiologists are supposed to fill imaging orders prescribed by clinicians. But clinicians may delegate the ordering of scans to their staff. (One member of the audience noted after the session that nurses may be asked to write imaging orders.)Confusion can result. The radiologist may wonder why the clinician wanted the scan — and to ask “maybe I can help,” Carrino said.Radiologists could be more involved in test selection, he said, but this should be done “in a streamlined way.” Artificial intelligence could help “by gathering the context-specific information that we would need,” he said. Clinical decision support, which is currently being looked at by the Federal government, might help as well.

Photo by Greg FreiherrEfforts to reform healthcare are booming, but finding one that will work well is a challenge.Citing the need to control soaring costs, payers continue trying to reform healthcare. The shift from volume- to value-based imaging is one of these efforts. And it is gathering momentum. Unfortunately, determining the value of imaging is not easy.In a July 21 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2019 session titled “Challenges and Opportunities for Radiology to Prove Value in Alternative Payment Models,” John Carrino, M.D., M.Ph., said radiology practices need to be engaged in the value paradigm. This is the most important point the vice chairman of radiology and imaging at the Hospital for Special Surgery (which ranked number one nationally in orthopedics and rheumatology for 2018-2019 by U.S. News and World Report) said he hoped people would get from his session.Focusing on value “doesn’t mean that you don’t have volume,” Carrino told Imaging Technology News. “And it doesn’t mean that you buy into all these models,” he said, noting that payment models can change. “But you need to be aware of (alternate payment models) and have a strategy that works for your practice.” He emphasized that different practices may have different strategies.In the session, Carrino detailed the proliferation of these models, noting recent emphasis on payment bundling and increasing interest in outcomes measures. Value has become an important focus. “If you have high-quality imaging, does it influence decision-making?” he asked during the session. “Can it save money?” Related content:Liars in Radiology Beware!FFR-CT: Is It Radiology or Cardiology?DR Advances Promote Imaging of Whole Spine How Standardizing Protocols Can Save Time and MoneyHow Artificial Intelligence Might Impact RadiologyHow To Manage Risk in the MR SuiteCMS Proposes New Alternative Payment Model for Radiation Oncology Johns Hopkins Named Qualified Provider-led Entity to Develop Criteria for Diagnostic Imaging Growth Of ACOs And Alternative Payment Models In 2017 FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享
