Radiology and Obamacare

Although the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Obamacare) has been anything but seamless, there are reasons to hope that this law will be beneficial to those in the field of radiology.  And it’s impact will be most directly felt in two ways.

Increase in Demand

First and foremost, Obamacare will provide health care coverage for up to 27 million people that were previously unable to get coverage.  The reasons for such a large number of uninsured are many.  The most common include financial reasons.

For the poor, even basic health insurance premiums don’t fit within their budgets.  For them it often makes more sense to go to the hospital when they are sick.  And while they are provided with care, the taxpayers end up footing the bill.  For many elderly, even those with reasonable incomes, pre-existing conditions make health insurance premiums far too expensive.  Finally there are those that simply don’t want to spend money on insurance because they are in good health.  This includes mostly the young, aged 21-29.

Regardless of the reasons for not securing medical insurance, the Affordable Care Act mandates that all U.S. citizens purchase insurance beginning in 2014 or face a fine.  While the fine in the first year is relatively small, by the second year it will increase substantially.  This will effectively increases the number of insured in this country by nearly 10%.

Undoubtedly, many of these newly insured will look to take advantage of previously unavailable services.  This in turn will force hospitals and healthcare facilities to begin hiring medical professionals to meet this significant increase in demand.  From this perspective, Obamacare could provide a much needed boost to an area of the economy that has seen some contraction in the past several years.  In fact many conservative estimates project the job market in the medical industry will expand by 5-6% over the next 24 months.

Increase in Pay

In any given market, an increase in demand is shortly followed by an increase in price.  And price in this particular instance means salaries.  As hospitals look to fill more and more positions, the pay needed to secure qualified professionals will increase.  Due to an excess supply of medical professionals over the past few years, healthcare providers have been the sole arbiters of pay.  In fact, it is not uncommon for an MRI, CT, or x ray technician to work in multiple hospitals and care facilities just to fill 40 hours of time per week.

This situation will change drastically with the increase of patient demand.  Hospitals will be forced to act quickly to insure they can secure qualified professionals as the existing supply dries up.

Another variable driving an increase in pay is the structure of Obamacare itself.  Under the current system, about 20% of the money spent on healthcare goes to physicians and other medical professionals.  Early estimates and budgets of the Affordable Care Act show an additional $30billion designated to professionals in 2016 alone.  This corresponds to a 5-6% increase in pay across the board.

In addition, the Affordable Care Act offers performance based incentives to doctors and professionals.  The idea is to increase the efficiency of providers, enabling them to still provide the necessary care for each patient, but at a lower cost.  Within radiology itself, much of the cost savings are to be derived from the use of advanced technologies for imaging purposes, and streamlining administrative systems to better handle patients and their records.

In the end, the new healthcare law should benefit both patients and medical professionals by reducing costs to the consumer, increasing overall efficiencies, and providing a boost to both salaries and job openings in the field of medicine.

Spice Up Your Italian Vacation in a Plush Villa

Italian villa holidaysWhen planning an Italian vacation, Italy villas are the perfect choice for a large group, usually families and friends, to enjoy a holiday together. However, many have a glamorized view of what a villa vacation is—living in a villa means taking care of it. Staying in a villa rather than a hotel could mean more work than you bargained for as you won’t have access to the array of help usually provided in hotels.

You’ll need to wash your own dishes, do your own laundry, take the garbage out and a bunch of other things you typically do at home. You’ll also have to buy groceries and cook your own food. Not only that, you’ll also have to purchase common household supplies such as soap, dish detergent, sponges, toilet paper, and even garbage bags. On the other hand, a rental usually comes with a part-time housekeeper who will help you take care of the villa.

In my personal experience, when I first rented a villa, I thought I didn’t need any other help than a cook—boy did it change my mind. My precious time was gobbled up by meager household chores such as washing the dishes, and my sightseeing time was wasted as I was too busy looking around for supermarkets so I could buy groceries. This showed me to appreciate how essential the services of a full-time housekeeper can be. They can surely make a home more warm and inviting. The one who has cared for a house for many years is called a major domo. His or her family may have also served the owners’ family for decades. Not only do they make our lives easier but they also expand our outlook on the Italian culture.

However, if you do decide to splurge on a fully staffed villa, all the household work would go down to a minimum or vanish. What probably won’t completely vanish are the inconveniences that come with ancient villas. Many villas have a limited supply of water, no heated pool, no air-conditioning, no window screens, and some even have no internet access.

For instance, in Provence, traditional homes have shutters to keep it cool and secure, but you must close all of them every time you leave the house. Owners in Italy usually complain about American guests leaving wet towels on antique beds and floors thereby damaging the antique wood. When you eventually vacate a rental villa, you may be asked to clean it before leaving, including taking out all the food from the fridge and stripping the beds of covers.

Even if you do not stay for the whole week, you’ll have to pay for the entire week’s stay as most Italy villas have a 1-week minimum. This is because the rental cost has little to do with the maximum number of occupancy. It relatively reflects the amenities, staff size, and help you can expect from the staff. Rental villas with such high prices often come with enticing perks and enhancements such as 24 hours maid service, airport greeting and escort and other transport services, bathroom amenities such as those little shampoo and conditioner bottles we all love, a fully stocked refrigerator sometimes with little bottles of vodka, and an English-speaking house manager.

The Thrill of Cold Water Diving

The Thrills of Cold Water DivingCanada offers one of the best cold water dive spots in the world and for seasoned divers, this is an opportunity that’s really hard to resist. But like any other form of diving, it requires specific preparation to ensure your safety. The transition to cold water driving comes with its own set of challenges, and the main one is getting used to the temperature of the water.

You can ease yourself into the experience by just testing the water. Enjoy a casual dip or two first and gradually shift to wearing a wetsuit. Then when you feel that you’re used to the cold water, take your first dive, keeping the cardinal rules of diving in mind, of course. Some additional tips that you should consider for this type of diving include:

• To compensate for the increase in temperature, you would need a special wetsuit which is thicker than your regular one. Dive centers can help you out with this concern -they usually assist divers in choosing the right weight for the activity. You also need to read up and inquire about regulators that are intended for use in cold water dives. These are also readily available at local dive shops.

• There are additional pieces of gear that you have to put on to protect you from the extreme temperature so make a checklist of the additional things that you’ll need like a thicker wetsuit and extra weights. A digital dive logbook can help you keep track of all this info. And then practice on putting all the gear on so you would have an easier time on the day of your dive.

• You can read up on the difference of cold water diving but you still need to brace yourself for the first splash of cold water on your face because it can come as a shock to you. And this can affect the quality of your breathing which is a critical factor in diving. Experiencing difficulty in breathing when you initially enter a body of cold water is called the Mammalian Diving Reflex. It is a temporary feeling that will pass when your body has gotten accustomed to the temperature. Some people put this down in a diving blog to share their personal account and allow other divers to know more about the intricacies of cold water diving.

• Learn how to clear your mask in cold water. Because the splash of cold water on your face causes a change in your breathing pattern, the act of exhaling to clear your mask can present a challenge. But if you keep on practicing, you’re likely to get this down pat.

In the end, it shouldn’t matter where you are diving because the basics are the same. While it is true that Great Barrier reef diving is completely the opposite of diving in the cold waters of Tobermory, Canada, it is still going to be a fun activity. Cold water diving may require a bit more thought and preparation because your body will react differently. But if you get all that down pat, then nothing should stop you from trying this out – you can definitely relax even in an extremely cold environment.

Knowing and Protecting Your Rights

If you are moving to California like I have recently, then you need to know that you have fundamental rights when purchasing and living within a condo. It is similar to an apartment where the land lord has specific responsibilities to maintain while you pay rent and live within his building. A condo is not so different! I was having some serious issues with the building’s owner operator when I first moved in so I was forced to contact a condominium lawyer in California. I wasn’t exactly pleased that I had to resort to such shenanigans but he left me no choice; I wasn’t even sure what kind of rights that I had but the individual was not meeting his end of the agreement and I was left feeling like I was being taken advantage of because I didn’t know those rights.
