Tertiary level treatment to sick children must be provided within stipulated time: Brahm Mohindra



CHANDIGARH, JUNE 25: The Punjab Government has issued order to all Health Mobile Teams to ensure tertiary level treatment services to sick children within stipulated time as per guidelines set under the "Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram”.

Giving details here, Brahm Mohindra, Minister for Health & Family Welfare said that confirmation of preliminary findings, referral support, management & follow up of screened children are key factors of the RBSK. "It has been learnt that Parents of the children, who were confirmed cases of Neuro-motor impairment and other serious diseases, would be counseled to commence the treatment of their children as early as possible and it is also the responsibility of health teams to motivate them.”

Mohindra said "We strictly instructed the Mobile Health Teams of RBSK who were conducting screening practices and examine the children that they would ensure the proper follow up of suspected and confirmed cases of children who were suffering from 31 identified diseases”. He said that to save the priceless lives of State children, early intervention is primary need to minimize disability of child as once the disability is already established then it would take more time to recover.

The Minister further said that experts have proved that the period from birth to 6 years are the most critical years for all children. This is especially true for children with developmental delay. Therefore, it stands that early identification and early intervention programs can significantly improve the quality of their lives.

He apprised that children in all 19760 Government & Government aided schools and in all AWCs (26533) were screened as per guidelines for 31 diseases during 2017-18.

He further informed that Rs. 4.73 crore has been spent for the tertiary level services, under which around 584 children have availed treatment of Rheumatic Heart Disease/Congenital Heart Disease at PGI, Forties, CMC & DMC and other diseases at empanelled hospitals. He said that 243 patients of thalassaemia were getting treatment at Six Thalassaemic societies & District hospitals.

He further said that from April 2017 to May 2018, total 84701 children have availed healthcare services free of cost at Government hospitals in the State.
 
Divulging about the initiative taken by the state government, he said that:

  • MoU have been signed with Smile Train for free treatment of Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate/Both or alone.  Treatment is provided at 9 Medical institutions .

  • MoU have also been signed with Cure International India Trust for free treatment of Clubfoot. Five Clubfoot clinics have been established at District Civil Hospital Bathinda, Gurdaspur, Jalandhar, Ludhiana and SAS Nagar.

PLAYING GOD?
Google can predict when you’ll die using AI

Google can predict when you’ll die using AI



Google knows everything (or at least it feels that way), and now it can even tell you when you’ll die.

The tech giant has partnered up with Stanford University to help test a new computer system to predict the time-of-death of hospital patients.

What’s more staggering is that trials put the accuracy of the AI’s predictions as high as 95 percent.
 
While there are several barriers to scale up the technology for widespread use in hospitals, they're not insurmountable, and the healthcare potential of an AI-based prediction system for the likelihood of death, discharge, and re-admission is massive.
 
It works by taking in personal data such as age and ethnicity which is then combined with hospital data like vital signs and any prior diagnoses.
 
And what makes the system particularly accurate is that it’s fed data typically out of reach for machines, like doctors notes buried away on charts or in PDFs.

As the AI program is used more and more, it gets smarter at predicting the death of the patient.
 
"These models outperformed traditional, clinically-used predictive models in all cases," explained Google's Alvin Rajkomar.

The system was trained through analysis of 160,000 adult and child patient files from Stanford and Lucile Packard Children's hospital.

When the algorithm was applied to 40,000 active patients (it was asked to predict which would die in the next three to twelve months) it was correct in 90% of cases.
 
Google's findings were published in the Nature journal in May.
------
Hospitals, doctors and other health-care providers have been trying for years to better use stockpiles of electronic health records and other patient data.
------
In one major case study in the research, Google applied its AI algorithm on a patient with late stage breast cancer, and predicted that there was 19.9% chance of the patient dying.

The hospital's Early Warning System, on the other hand, predicted a 9.3% chance of death.

A few days later, the patient died.
 
Hospitals, doctors and other health-care providers have been trying for years to better use stockpiles of electronic health records and other patient data.
 
More information shared and highlighted at the right time could save lives. But current methods of mining health data are costly, cumbersome and time consuming.
 
Google has long sought access to digital medical records, with mixed results. For its recent research, the internet giant cut deals with the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Chicago for 46 billion pieces of anonymous patient data.
 
Google's AI system created predictive models for each hospital, not one that parses data across the two, a harder problem. A solution for all hospitals would be even more challenging. Google is working to secure new partners for access to more records.

A deeper dive into health would only add to the vast amounts of information Google already has on us. "Companies like Google and other tech giants are going to have a unique, almost monopolistic, ability to capitalize on all the data we generate," said Andrew Burt, chief privacy officer for data company Immuta. He and pediatric oncologist Samuel Volchenboum wrote a recent column arguing governments should prevent this data from becoming "the province of only a few companies," like in online advertising where Google reigns.

This is such a TERRIBLE misuse of statistics... A patient with either 9 or 19 % chance of death should NOT die...
Both the prediction models are WRONG in this case

ARE WE FOOLS?
Sooner or later, we have to recognise this, better we do it now!
05.06.18 - KRUNESH GARG
Sooner or later, we have to recognise this, better we do it now!



John Muir, a famous Scottish environmental philosopher once said, "God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools”.

It is us, the fools that have destroyed our environment and it is from us that it needs protection. Saving the environment should be our biggest priority right now. Because by destroying the environment we are destroying our very own future. Celebrating Environment day is a small but a positive step towards saving the environment. 

World Environment Day is a campaign celebrated annually on 5th of June to inspire people worldwide to stop negative environmental changes. This campaign was established to focus on environment conditions and encourage people to be the active part of positive changes in the environment on earth in order to ensure the safe future of our planet. It is the single largest celebration of our environment each year and is celebrated by thousands of communities worldwide.
------
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
------
This year India has been chosen as the host country for global World Environment Day celebrations, succeeding 2017 host Canada.

India has chosen the theme "Beat Plastic Pollution” for 2018, which urges governments, industry, communities, and individuals to come together and explore sustainable alternatives and urgently reduce the production and excessive use of single-use plastic polluting our oceans, damaging marine life and threatening human health.

Since its first celebration on 5 June 1974, millions of people across the world have taken part in thousands of events to raise awareness and generate political momentum around growing concerns such as the depletion of the ozone layer, toxic chemicals, desertification and global warming.

So, events range from neighborhood clean-ups, to action against wildlife crime, to replanting forests are involved in this. 
------
"The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved”
------
The Day has developed into a global platform for taking action on urgent environmental issues, driving change in our consumption habits as well as influencing national and international policy.

But a lot more needs to be done by us. Taking care of environment shouldn’t be a one day thing. We need to work towards it every day. Every day we should try to preserve the environment so that our coming generations also gets a chance to experience the beauty of mother earth and its wonderful nature. As a famous Native American proverb goes, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” So let’s leave this wonderful gift of nature for our children’s too. Let’s not completely destroy it.

‘Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans’, these words of Evo Morales, President of Bolivia should awake us from slumber.

A famous British architect Richard Rogers said, "The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved”. So on this World Environment Day, I urge people and governments everywhere to overcome indifference, combat greed and act to preserve our natural heritage for the benefit of this and future generations.
