Widely Prescribed Stimulants and the Risk of Psychosis in Young People with ADHD is organized by Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) and will be held on Jul 14, 2020. Description: The prescription use of stimulants such as Ritalin and Adderall (methylphenidate and amphetamine, respectively) for the treatment of ADHD has been increasing. In 2007, the FDA mandated changes to drug labels for stimulants, based on findings about increased risk for psychosis. We studied whether the risk of psychosis in patients with ADHD differs among various stimulant types and found that patients prescribed amphetamine were at a higher risk of new psychosis requiring treatment with antipsychotic medicines than patients who had been prescribed methylphenidate.

Medical Command Center Exchange (MCCE) is organized by IQPC Exchange and will be held on Jul 15, 2020. Description: Communicating Data & Analytics in Real-Time: Normally to move to a Command Center model takes approximately 18 – 24 months to complete (including buy cycle). The process would typically start with a comprehensive review into the processes at each of the hospitals or medical systems in a practice or hospital group, with an eye towards lean/efficient business practices, and decide what the future state of the hospital system should look like, while testing the new processes along the way. This has been placed into hyper-drive by the COVID-19 Pandemic, which has caused major disruptions within the healthcare system. To deal with the crisis, many hospitals created ad hoc command centers, utilizing the resources on hand (think lots of excel spreadsheets being manually updated), all while working on reduced revenue, as they were forced to cancel elective procedures, which typically provide the most revenue for hospital systems. As they pick up their heads, these leaders are looking forward and seeing the value this model has been providing, they are looking backward and seeing where they can build in great efficiency, as they plan for an ongoing pandemic, along with general healthcare during a public health emergency. Topics Featured: • Communicate Data and Analytics in Real-Time • Fireside Chat: From Zero to Pandemic - Building a Command Center from Scratch During a Public Health Crisis • Using AI and Predictive Analytics to Improve Patient Care (PH) • Quickly Increase Beds without Opening More Facilities (PH) • Working With Government Agencies During a Pandemic Note: Please note that your registration is not free and that there is a booking fee involved.
