    Patients and providers concerned over Amazon’s health-care expansion

    Elderly patients used to take cooking classes and do puzzles at Iora Health clinics, which also paid for taxi rides so they wouldn’t miss appointments. The late-night phone calls, free transportation and ability to text with clinical staff helped pull Deborah Wood of Kennesaw, Ga., out of a spiraling health crisis, she said. But since Amazon bought Iora parent company One Medical and rebranded it as One Medical Seniors, appointments have gotten shorter, clinical staff have lost their jobs and some of the unique offerings have disappeared, patients and former employees told The Washington Post in interviews. The changes for senior patients like Wood highlight Amazon’s recent effort to consolidate…

    IVF court ruling further upends women’s health care in Alabama

    AUBURN, Ala. — She removed the tiny vials from her refrigerator and began filling syringes laid out on her dining room table, determined to continue injections that could make her a mother. “I am going to keep fighting,” said Gabrielle “Gabby” Goidel, wincing as her husband gave her the first shot of an in vitro fertilization cycle precisely timed so a doctor could extract eggs, fertilize them and implant embryos before month’s end. Just a few days earlier, Alabama’s Supreme Court had ruled that frozen embryos are children and that people can be held liable for destroying them. The outcome had thrown countless women’s hopes and plans into doubt. Already,…

    How much to save for retirement healthcare: The number is rising

    What would you and your spouse do with $351,000 when you retire?   That may sound like a nice nest egg, but you may need every penny just to cover health care costs in retirement, including Medicare premiums and drugs after insurance pays its part, according to recent research.  And that figure is conservative, the research notes.  Americans already lack retirement savings. A New York Life survey of 2,202 adults last month showed only 4 in 10 have a nest egg, even though 74% expect to retire at 64. That shortfall means many retirees may find their golden years tarnished by financial stress.   “People have so many different financial…

    Children’s Hospital LA launches AI-driven ER patient app

    Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has partnered with Vital to integrate an artificial intelligence-driven tool called ERAdvisor that can improve the patient-family experience with clarity and predictability. WHY IT MATTERS Closing the gap between clinical documentation and clarity with plain-language test results and predictable wait times may ease the strain on patients and their families at CHLA, according to an announcement from Vital on Monday. Upon ER registration, families receive a text message inviting them to log into a secure web-based interface and then receive real-time notifications and information on their child’s status, location within the department, lab and imaging status and changes in care.  Patient families access the free multilingual…

    Destroying Gaza’s Health Care System Is a War Crime

    On Jan. 26, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague issued an initial ruling in South Africa’s lawsuit accusing Israel of genocidal acts in Gaza. The court did not call for an immediate cease-fire, nor did it rule on whether Israel is in fact committing a genocide, but it did instruct Israel to take provisional measures to prevent genocidal acts. In its ruling, the court noted “a large number of deaths and injuries, as well as the massive destruction of homes, the forcible displacement of the vast majority of the population, and extensive damage to civilian infrastructure.” A less noted pillar of the case against Israel, however, is…

    How a new California agency aims to cap your health care costs

    In summary California’s new Office of Health Care Affordability has a mandate to control price increases. It’s proposing a target that’s among the most aggressive in America. A new state office charged with controlling the rising cost of health care in California is moving toward one of the most aggressive goals in the nation, aiming to cap cost increases to 3% a year. You might not notice right away if the Office of Health Care Affordability commits to the tentative goal it released last month and takes steps to enforce it. But, over time, experts say the cap on price increases could make a difference in how much Californians pay…

    What long Covid patients need to know about health insurance

    Halfpoint Images | Moment | Getty Images Navigating the health insurance system is often difficult and overwhelming, even in the best of times. For patients with long Covid, a relatively new condition that frequently leaves patients with a lengthy and unpredictable list of debilitating symptoms, it can be especially nightmarish. “Even if you remain on the same [health insurance] plan you had before Covid, you will probably utilize the health-care system more, whether it be more office visits, more prescription medications or even more medical devices,” said Caitlin Donovan, a spokesperson for the National Patient Advocate Foundation. Indeed, nearly half of people with long Covid reported increased medical expenses, according to…
