These systems support a fragmented delivery system at substantial cost to taxpayers and Medicare beneficiaries. Policy analysts have long been interested in encouraging improved efficiency and care coordination by bundling Medicare payments for a(More)
Coupled oscillator arrays (COAs) have been introduced as a simple, low cost method to achieve spatial power combining with the flexibility to generate the phase shifts necessary for beam steering applications. One difficulty in fabricating large scale COAs is the need for tight fabrication tolerances in order for the oscillators to lock to a single(More)
Numerical simulations of three separate events of tropical cyclogenesis (TC-genesis) off the West African coast between the years of 2006 and 2008 were performed. The purpose of this study was to investigate the processes that take place during the transition of an African easterly wave (AEW) and any associated mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) as they(More)
The application of Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy to the quantitation of effective nucleoside loading on a solid support, via detection of a reaction intermediate, was developed. 4,5-Dicyanoimidazole (DCI) activator is reacted with a known amount of polystyrene-bound phosphoramidite to form a diisopropylamine-DCI salt complex that is(More)
This evaluation of substance abuse and mental health treatment services in Arizona discusses and illustrates the use of data already collected by the State to manage and monitor the public behavioral health sector. The authors utilize a framework that focuses on rate-setting and financial incentives; provider profiling and education; and monitoring of data(More)
To achieve quality improvement in hospitals requires greater attention to systems thinking than is typical at this time, including a shared understanding across different levels of the hospital of the current state of quality improvement efforts. A self-administered survey assessed the perceptions of board members, C-suite executives, and clinical managers(More)
