first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Wolf Administration’s PA Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Sharing Data with 10 Other States and D.C. National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Results,  Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – The Wolf Administration’s Department of Health today announced that the Pennsylvania Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PA PDMP) is now sharing data with drug monitoring programs in 10 states and Washington D.C.“We are pleased to be working with other states to stop prescription drug abuse because the issue of addiction doesn’t stop at Pennsylvania’s border,” Governor Wolf said. “Sharing this information will help curb doctor shopping and save lives. We will soon connect with even more states to ensure the greatest level of protection for every Pennsylvanian.”Users of Pennsylvania’s PDMP can now see if their patients have filled controlled substance prescriptions in: Connecticut; Illinois; Louisiana; Massachusetts; New Jersey; New York; Ohio; Virginia; West Virginia; and Washington D.C. Additionally, a one-way sharing connection has been established with Maryland, enabling their program users to search the PA PDMP.“This interstate sharing of patient data helps providers get a more complete picture of their patients’ controlled substance prescription histories, regardless of which state they filled their prescription in,” Department of Health Secretary Karen Murphy said.The Department of Health’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program office manages the PA PDMP system, which collects Schedule II-V controlled substances data and stores it in a secure database only available to health care professionals and others as authorized by law.The PA PDMP system has improved the quality of patient care in Pennsylvania by providing prescribers and dispensers access to information about all controlled substances dispensed to their patients. This system also assists prescribers in referring patients with the disease of addiction to appropriate treatment.Health information in the PA PDMP system is protected by the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and other state laws. The HIPAA privacy rule and state law protect the privacy of individuals’ health information.Pennsylvania residents and/or patients, licensed medical professionals, and users of the system can request information by contacting the PA PDMP office at RA-DH-PDMP@pa.gov.For more information, please browse the PA PDMP website for the latest updates at www.doh.pa.gov/PDMP.center_img June 29, 2017last_img read more

Former Keva chairman calls for end of private pensions in Finland

first_img“It has been seen that a public entity – Keva, that is – can look after pensions for smaller cost and in a more just manner. In addition, their investments have yielded more than those of private pension insurance companies.“A public monopoly would serve the interests of pension savers better than the current setting, where competition is only nominal.”Kataja also argued that the current system wastes resources on high management costs and paying bonuses to the companies that switch insurance companies.“A single institution would be easier to supervise than a system consisting of several players,” Kataja said.“One large actor would also have the best chances to perform well in terms of investment returns.”Suvi-Anne Siimes, managing director at Tela, responded to Kataja’s proposals by pointing out that the main task of the occupational pensions system was to secure pensions for current and future pensioners.Tela represents all statutory earnings-related pension insurance institutions in Finland.“There is a strong basis for the current, diversified model in Finland, the most important duty of which is to secure statutory pensions,” Siimes told IPE.“In the Finnish occupational pension system, unlike in so many other countries, pension assets are kept separate from the state budget.“This means the funds cannot be used for anything else except paying out pensions – for example, for balancing state or municipal economies in harder times, unlike in some other countries in Europe, as seen recently.”The current structure also reduces investment risk, as each institution follows its own investment strategy, Siimes said.“In a more centralised system, investment portfolios would also be more centralised, which would increase investment risk in the whole system,” she added.“In the current system, if one investment fails to perform well, another one will balance it.”In early 2013, the Finnish Centre for Pensions published a study comparing the costs of the Finnish occupational pensions system with corresponding systems in other countries.It found that the operating costs of the Finnish system were the lowest in the Nordic region, and that the pensions landscape comprised fewer institutions than in other countries researched. The Finnish Pension Alliance (Tela) has criticised the recent suggestion of Sampsa Kataja – a local MP and former chairman of Finland’s local government pension institution Keva – that the country’s pensions landscape should be simplified into a monopoly of one public pension institution.Kataja, currently serving as an MP for the centre-right National Coalition Party, told Finland’s national public service broadcasting company last week that the current system, which consists of several institutions for statutory pensions, should be dismantled and a public monopoly established instead.According to Kataja, supervising a single and public institution would be easier and more profitable than the current setting of several public and private bodies for statutory pensions.“Pensions and contribution rates are defined in the law, meaning there is no real competition in the market in any case,” he said.last_img read more

Awoniyi reflects on successful time with Mouscron

first_img Asked about why he was successful with Mouscron, Awoniyi told Tribalfootball.com: “Of course I played more games and got the chance I deserved. I had a great time in Mouscron. “Football is about your presence being felt and making good use of the chances that come your way and I think I had both while at Mouscron last season.” Some took it as a surprise that Awoniyi moved on from Belgium after his successful time in the Jupiler Premier League, instead of moving to Bundesliga side Mainz on loan last summer. And Awoniyi says it was a decision made between himself and Liverpool to take another step in his young career. read also:Bundesliga: Awoniyi rules self out of Dortmund clash “I had two years in Belgium which were great seasons for me and there are lots of reasons why I chose to leave, but Mouscron will always be a club that I respect a lot. “Leaving for me had always been the plan between me, Liverpool and my agent to fulfil my goals and targets, as I continue to develop my football.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Liverpool loanee, Taiwo Awoniyi, has said he needed to move on from Belgium after two consecutive seasons. The Nigerian has been unable to play for Liverpool since joining in 2015 due to his work-permit ineligibility. He was sent out on loan to FSV Frankfurt and NEC in the Netherlands before arriving in Belgium with Royal Excel Mouscron. It was with Les Hurlus where the physical striker established himself as a senior footballer at the age of just 20, scoring ten goals in his first spell with the club. Awoniyi’s next spell at Gent wasn’t as prolific, having scored 3 times in 21 outings, and the loan was cut short in January 2019. The 22-year-old then re-joined Mouscron and immediately regained his goalscoring touch, bagging himself 11 goals in 16 appearances.Advertisementcenter_img Loading…last_img read more
