  • the end of inflation may be the beginning of something malevolent: a long, slow retrenchment in which consumers and businesses worldwide lose the wherewithal to buy, sending prices down for many goods. though still considered unlikely, that would prompt businesses to slow production and accelerate layoffs, taking more paychecks out of the economy and further weakening demand. bls.gov

  • a geographic information system can map the residences of older adults and persons with special needs who will require assistance during an emergency evacuation. after hurricane charley crossed florida in 2004, cdc provided population maps for the three most damaged counties to enable workers to identify and interview someone from almost 600 households with an older adult (23). in one county, workers found that in one-third of the households with a chronically ill older adult, at least one of the older person’s conditions had worsened because of the hurricane; 28% of the households reported that an older adult was unable to receive routine care for a chronic disease. in another county, 9% of households with older adults did not have access to prescription drugs. local health care providers used this information to accelerate restoration of medical services and access to medications in the affected areas (23). cdc.gov

  • and, last, i think the intelligence community has to accelerate the moves it has made in recent years toward greater openness. in today's environment, the community has to be able to explain more effectively to the public, to the press, to congress and others what it does for a living, what the realities are, and where there are efforts being made to change. cia.gov

  • and having a chronic illness can accelerate aging. telomeres show that health conditions and related treatments that cause premature aging — such as depression, chemotherapy for people with cancer, and haart (highly active antiretroviral therapy) for people infected with hiv — are all damaging to us at the molecular level, says epel. everydayhealth.com

  • the synchrotron can be used to accelerate electrons but is inefficient. an electron moves much faster than a proton of the same energy and hence loses much more energy in synchrotron radiation. a circular machine used to accelerate electrons is the betatron, invented by donald kerst in 1939. electrons are injected into a doughnut-shaped vacuum chamber that surrounds a magnetic field. the magnetic field is steadily increased, inducing a tangential electric field that accelerates the electrons (see induction). factmonster.com

  • i also know that at times the government has an opportunity to help accelerate sometimes through financial or other arrangements activity and i was thinking, for example, the hl7 function, you know, ehr functional standards work that occurred recently where appropriate funding seemed to accelerate development of at least a draft standard for trial use. hhs.gov

  • health system engineers integrate organization and industry knowledge with structured methods, advanced analytics, innovative technology and change management to accelerate the discovery, translation and application of solutions to meet strategic healthcare delivery and business objectives. working with leaders, multi-disciplinary teams and or subject matter experts, the hse is typically responsible to: mayoclinic.org

  • in 2017, the u.s. fda approved a diagnostic test that can aid the diagnosis of sepsis and, in the same test, identify many of the common bacterial causes and their susceptibility to antibiotics about an average of 42 hours faster than current tests. the blood test, accelerate phenotest bc kit, made by accelerate diagnostic, may allow a more rapid and specific diagnosis and provide information about treatment options (antimicrobial drugs) to treat the causative agent(s) of sepsis early and more effectively. the test can identify the genus and species of common gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial infections that can lead to sepsis, show their sensitivity or resistance to several antibiotics, and can identify sepsis caused by candida fungal species. medicinenet.com

  • i'm excited that we are rapidly discovering biological ways for how we might repair and protect the brain. within the last four years, we have a whole set of different families of drugs that appear to accelerate repair to the myelin (coating of nerve fibers) in animals. these are the first positive clinical trials. we're taking baby steps. medlineplus.gov

  • although survival rates are increasing for many cancers, our work is far from over. asco's research priorities to accelerate progress against cancer are intended to serve as a guidepost for steering future research in directions we believe have the greatest potential to accelerate the pace of progress. we identified a list of research priorities that help fill critical gaps in cancer prevention and care -- from increasing diversity in clinical trials, to better predicting responses to immunotherapy, to reducing the impact of obesity on cancer incidence and outcomes. medpagetoday.com

  • some experts recommend giving corticosteroids to accelerate fetal lung maturity when early delivery may become necessary and gestational age is < 34 weeks. corticosteroids may be used if bleeding occurs after 34 weeks and before 36 weeks (late preterm period) in patients who have not required corticosteroids before 34 weeks (1). merckmanuals.com

  • the nih blueprint for neuroscience research (blueprint) aims to accelerate these discoveries. blueprint, a collaboration among 15 participating nih institutes, centers and offices (ics) that supports research on the nervous system, seeks to enhance cooperative activities and to accelerate the pace of discovery and understanding in neuroscience research. blueprint was initiated in 2004 by the nih director (dr. elias zerhouni), based on the premise that, by pooling resources and expertise, blueprint ics can take advantage of economies of scale, confront challenges too large for any single ic, and develop research tools and infrastructure that will serve the entire neuroscience community. more… nih.gov

  • usa.gov is an interagency product administered by usagov (formerly the federal citizen information center), a division of the u.s. general services administration's technology transformation service. it got its start when internet entrepreneur eric brewer, whose early research was funded by the department of defense, offered to donate a powerful search engine to government. that gift helped accelerate the government's earlier work to create a government-wide portal. usa.gov
