Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2014

Thermo Scientific announces a new educational webinar, “Comprehensive Anti-doping Detection using the Q Exactive Orbitrap MS for Equine Urine Analysis,” featuring Dr. Scott D Stanley, PhD, Professor at University of California–Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. The webinar will be presented live October 16, 2014 at 8:00AM PT.

Equine anti-doping analysis is a changing and dynamic field of science. The constant introduction of new drugs and biopharmaceuticals present challenges to the integrity of sports. Anti-doping programs are continually falling under fire due to allegations of perceived doping by athletes with drugs that are rumored to be undetectable by the current testing schemes which in some cases offer limited drug coverage.

The continual advancements of modern mass spectrometry have enabled anti-doping laboratories to significantly expand the drug coverage for both human and equine athletes. Both the benchtop Thermo Scientific™ Exactive™ and the Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive Orbitrap mass spectrometers have been used by the K.L. Maddy Equine Analytical Chemistry Laboratories at UC Davis for the past six years.

Dr. Scott Stanley will discuss key learning objectives of drug analysis, such as expanded drug coverage for anti-doping labs; Detection of both small and large molecules in a single analytical run; Detection of > 600 compounds, including phase I and phase II drug metabolites; and Analysis of >100 samples per instrument per day.

For the past 21 years, Dr. Stanley has worked nationally and internationally in the fields of equine pharmacology, analytical chemistry and drug detection. He is the Principal Chemist at the Kenneth L. Maddy Equine Analytical Chemistry Laboratory, California’s Official Drug Testing Laboratory for all racing horse events. Dr. Stanley maintains an active analytical chemistry research laboratory involved in the steroid profiling methods, and investigation of veterinary drugs produced by veterinary compounding pharmacies. Since opening in 2000, the K.L. Maddy Laboratory has established itself as one of the largest and most respected Anti-Doping and Equine Pharmacology Research programs.

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) November 17, 2014

In CHAMPS Patient Experience’s most recent blog post, Northeast Ohio Healthcare Leaders Discuss the Shift to Value-Based Healthcare, Carol Santalucia shares her thoughts on the topic.

On November 7, Santalucia had the pleasure of attending a luncheon at The City Club of Cleveland on healthcare delivery featuring Northeast Ohio healthcare leaders discussing the shift to value-based healthcare. Not only was it an interesting and informative panel discussion, it was also very encouraging. The Northeast Ohio healthcare leaders on the panel agreed the Affordable Care Act has forced leaders to think about the delivery of healthcare in a whole new way. For the first time, everyone is really challenged to think about wellness rather than sickness.

The Northeast Ohio healthcare leaders talked about the need to look at the value of healthcare in terms of a mathematical equation, with the numerator being quality and the denominator being cost. When looking at the value of healthcare from this perspective, it is clear – healthcare leaders must continue to look at ways to improve quality and/or reduce cost in order to increase value.

The panel of Northeast Ohio healthcare leaders also stressed the importance of going beyond the hospital walls to look at improved quality. We must look at how the patient does once they are discharged from the hospital and back in their homes. Do they have access to healthy foods? Have they made their follow up appointment, and do they have the means to go to the appointment, or is transportation too large of a barrier for them? Do they understand the different medications they are on, and have they gone to pick them up at the pharmacy? Can they afford their meds?

One way CHAMPS has seen these questions being addressed is with the development and implementation of a patient navigation program. Patient navigators, a relatively new segment of the healthcare industry, are helping to make the shift to patient-centered care a reality.

When everyone thinks about the patient experience, they must consider all of these things. It is not just about the service a patient receives in the hospital. It is about their overall health and wellness, about partnering with them, listening to them, and meeting them where they are, to truly make the care “patient centered.” As one of the Northeast Ohio healthcare leaders said, “This truly is the most transformative time in healthcare, and I am thrilled to be a part of it!”

Santalucia closes her blog by asking readers if they have seen their organization prepare for the shift to value-based healthcare.
