The Three Medical Options Available for Your Health
Sometimes it feels like the world around us is changing so fast and in so many ways that it is difficult to know why these changes are happening. The American medical system has seen significant changes over the past decade with the introduction of new legislation such as the Affordable Care Act. Here are three ways that Americans can continue to receive the high-quality care of medical professionals in this day and age.
Mixing professionalism with personal-level care, a primary care physician gets to know their patients on an individual level. This is a dynamic relationship based on trust; trust that the doctor has the patient’s best interests in mind and trust that the patient will follow the doctor’s orders in order to get better. Unfortunately, this rel Continue Reading
Answers for Hair Loss
Hair loss can be a very depressing thing. Sometimes, hair loss is caused by less than ideal situations such as stress or illness; thinning hair just makes it that much worse to deal with. It’s like, on top of everything that could be going wrong, why does hair loss have to be a part of it? Unfortunately, however, it is, as much as we don’t like it. But you don’t have to just deal with it. The great thing is, with the technology available to us nowadays, we can really do, have and be anything we want! Let’s look at a few ways that you can get your hair back to its former glory.
Renew Your Skin With Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels!
Winter can be tough on skin — it gets dry, chapped, and tough. Sometimes not even the best lotions or creams can help, especially on areas of your body that tend to get calloused and rough, like heels and elbows. Your skin needs attention all the time though, not just in the winter! For those who pay close attention to their skin and skin health, microdermabrasion is a procedure many people choose to have done, to exfoliate. It’s a common treatment at spas. If you have laser hair removal procedures, or indulge in a chemical peel, a microdermabrasion can sometimes help smooth out skin and rejuvenate it.

Our skin is the first line of defense from the sun, bacteria, and other harmful things in our atmosphere. So it’s important that we take Continue Reading
What Is the Future of Telemedicine?
Today is a perfect example of the benefits and future of telemedicine. You woke up to the wind knocking over the furniture on your deck. While you slept, the temperatures plummeted to five degrees, with a windchill factor of 20 below. After a week of rain, sleet, snow intermittingly making everything a complete slushy mess, the falling temperatures have made the sidewalks and streets a skating rink. You woke up relieved that you would not need to drive the 20 miles to town for the doctor’s appointment.
Instead, you have a scheduled phone call and video conference. You will use the special phone attachment so they can check you readings on your pacemaker and you are done until the next month. What a relieve to know that your nex Continue Reading
How to Make Your HR Department More Effecient
Human resources could all the help it can get. They’re so busy and there’s always things coming up and and new projects starting; any little bit of assistance is appreciated. Outsourcing is always an option of course, but that has some risk involved.
Outsourcing HR includes hiring a third party to do all of the administration type work as well as payroll and any other duties that the HR might be in charge of.
The problem with this is that
- You have to pass over your employees sensitive information such as banking information, etc in order for them to get paid.
- It means laying off the HR department you currently have.
So instead of outsourcing and upsetting the current system you have going, why not look in to some human resourc Continue Reading
How to receive immediate care while on Vacation
National Travel Survey reveals that 63% of travelers get sick while on vacation. Who wants to be sick while on vacation? On average, if you’re on vacation, you’ve already saved and budgeted the entire trip, and medical expenses weren’t in that budget. The typical visit to an Emergency Room can run your pockets about $1,500. So you may ask, “How do I avoid those extra medical expenses?”
The answer to your question is simple, Urgent Care
Urgent Care is an immediate care center, walk-in clinic that treats all of your injuries and illnesses when your main physician is out of office, and an emergency room is not applicable. In just the United States, there are about 6800 Urgent Care facilities spre Continue Reading
Why Your Three-Year-Old Should Try Gymnastics
Concerns about the level of physical activity among young Americans is growing. Six to 17 year olds should engage in at least one hour of physical activity, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services guidelines, but almost three-quarters of American children aged five to ten years old do not get enough exercise on a daily basis. Worse still, physical activity decreases as they get older. Combine this with the fact that 40% of a child’s daily calorie intake comprises so-called empty calories from added sugars and solid fats, and the result is that as much as one-third of children are overweight, according to a 2010 statistic by Statistica.
So it is little wonder that more and more parents are opting for Continue Reading
The Magic That Employee Benefits Software Can Work On Your Business
Perhaps one of the most valuable assets to having a full time job are the benefits you receive from that job. With good benefits, even a lower paying job can be worth it, if you’ve got great health insurance, a retirement plan, and good vacation time or sick leave. For an employer though, negotiating employee benefits — especially for small businesses — can be something of a logistical nightmare. Employee benefits for small business owners may be more limited in scope than what a larger business could take advantage of, because there are fewer people participating in the benefits plan. In these cases, looking at Continue Reading
When Your “Cold” Won’t Go Away – Know When to See a Doctor
Wintertime is often synonymous with the common cold. Colds are a viral infection that will typically go away on their own, but often times the persistent coughing and stuffy nose seems to linger for weeks at a time. There are important symptoms to look for that might indicate your cold is something much more serious and may require a visit to your doctor or the urgent care clinic.
Dizziness or fainting.
If you are lightheaded to the point where you might faint, your sickness may be something entirely different than a cold. A medical urgent care center can more accurately diagnose you if you?re experiencing dizzy spells. You may even be dehydrated and need an IV. If your condition isn?t life threatening, consider visiting an urgent care clinic. They can administer the IV and ge Continue Reading
Not All Urgent Care Centers are Created Equal – Choose the Right Facility for Your Needs
Urgent care facilities are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience and quality medical treatment as an alternative to the ER. It seems as if physicians are opening urgent care centers left and right. As with any business, some urgent care facilities are arguably better than others, or can offer some features that other clinics do not. Know what to look for when choosing an urgent care center for your medical needs.
Do they offer extended hours? One of the main draws to an urgent care clinic is the extended hours. It?s tough to see a p Continue Reading
