Improving quality, controlling costs: the role of managed care. Pennsylvania Medical Society Council on Medical Economics

, : Improving quality, controlling costs: the role of managed care. Pennsylvania Medical Society Council on Medical Economics. Pennsylvania Medicine 96(6): 20-23

Recognizing the importance of managed care concepts in the nationwide debate on health system reform, the State Society's Council on Medical Economics has compiled a discussion draft of the Society's positions on "The Role of Managed Care in Improving Quality and Controlling Health Expenditures," excerpted here. In addition to members' comments, the Society is soliciting comments from health caregivers, legislators, regulators, labor, business, insurers, and most importantly patients. Members may obtain a free copy of the complete draft by calling the Society's Department of Media Relations at (800) 228-7823. Direct any written comments to the Society's Division of Communications and Public Affairs.

The size, number, and rate of formation of mature adipocytes were studied in the epididymal pads and retroperitoneal adipose depots of the Sprague-Dawley rat. Early growth of these depots was accompanied by progressive enlargement of adipose cells...

Tunable, mid-infrared radiation was obtained by frequency doubling of a continuous-wave CO(2) laser in orientation-patterned GaAs crystal. Active cooling of the crystal minimized pump-induced thermal effects, allowing generation of output powers e...
