The performance of programs executed on parallel systems is innuenced by a large number of factors related to the match b e t ween system and program characteristics. Performance debugging helps in understanding the behavior of the programs. Possible bottlenecks and unbalanced work distributions among the processors are identiied. The portions of the code(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors examined the impact of budgeting based on diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) on inpatient psychiatric care in Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers. DRG-based budgeting was implemented by the VA in 1984 and suspended in 1988. METHOD Computerized discharge abstracts were obtained for all episodes of VA inpatient care(More)
Discharge abstracts were analyzed for all patients discharged from Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers with a primary non-substance abuse psychiatric diagnosis over a twelve year period (1976 to 1988). Patients were identified as Mentally Ill Chemical Abusers (MICAs) if they had a primary mental illness diagnosis and either a secondary(More)
Apoptosis is a physiological process of programmed cell death responsible for homeostasis in the body. In skin, apoptotic process regulates keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation in that way maintaining homeostasis of epidermal compartment. The process of apoptosis is controlled by proteins of the Bcl-2 family, several proapoptotic (Bax, Bak, Bad)(More)
Loops represent the core of most applications in that they contain the bulk of the computations. An eecient parallelization of loops leads to good overall performance of the applications. High Performance Fortran provides a set of directives to be used to exploit the potential paral-lelism of the code. Our studies focus on the analysis of the performance of(More)
