Unicist approach to ethical issues of EMR

To translate this post, click on the title to open it and then click on your flag in the right menu.

Ethical and legal issues of EMR are still unsolved. The problem is extremely complex. On one hand EMR allow the achievement of “absolute” transparency of the information needed to cure patiens. But on the other hand this information needs to be safe, secure and confidential. This appears to be the main problem of Obama’s Administration project. See Medscape article:

Excerpt

“No doctor can ignore the growing pressures to start using an EMR. With the Obama administration avidly promoting healthcare information technology, and tens of thousands of dollars at stake in incentives and future penalties for doctors, more physicians will be implementing EMRs in the coming years. Under the recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, physicians who demonstrate meaningful use of EMR by 2011 will be eligible for full federal subsidies of up to $44,000. Failure to implement EMR by 2014 may also result in increased malpractice premiums and increased exposure to malpractice claims, as well as a reduction in Medicare reimbursement, beginning in 2015.”

Unicist Complexity Research – Clinical trial paradigms are changing

To translate this post, click on the title to open it and then click on your flag in the right menu.

A couple of years ago Wyeth introduced a new R&D protocol in drug development. It was named “Learn & Confirm” and relies most heavily on biomarkers and pharmacogenomic approaches. 

As part of Learn and Confirm, Wyeth drug-development teams were encouraged to examine each compound coming through the pipeline for ways that the company can employ a biomarker-based or pharmacogenomic approach that can help move it downstream.

This R&D Methodology was based on the research developed by Lewis B. Sheiner synthesized in the paper  “Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics” .

This methodology is naturally consistent with the unicist complexity research methodology.  Therefore we working with CROs to expand this technology using the unicist healthcare cybernetic approach synthesized in the Unicist Cyberstation.

The Unicist Research Institute invites you to toast on its 33rd Anniversary.  We invite you to light a candle for one minute on Monday, 1st of June at 1:00 pm New York time for the new era that began in the field of complexity management after the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

33anniversary

We are celebrating this anniversary having installed the countdown of the first ontology based knowledge building search engine available in the world:

We are making a business knowledge building engine available for the business world. It includes the technical, analytical and fundamental knowledge to make reliable decisions. The factual and analytical knowledge-base is provided by the existing search engines. The fundamentals knowledge bank is provided by The Unicist Research Institute based on almost 3,000 ontological structures, including the archetypes of 51 countries,  researched and discovered during the last 30 years in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. The unicist ontology based fundamental analysis made the approach to complexity reliable and a cybernetic approach to business possible. This participative knowledge building technology will expand the technical, analytical and fundamental knowledge bank ad infinitum.

Unicist innovative approach to medical technology

To translate this post, click on the title to open it and then click on your flag in the right menu.

In the field of medical innovation security, reliability and effectiveness are basic. That is why the separation between innovative and conservative physicians is so evident. The approach to innovation requires overcoming ethical, technological and human barriers before a new technology can be considered as a standard.
Innovation in medicine is easy to be accepted in the field of new or “extreme” diseases. But it is problematic in the rest of the medical practice. But innovation in medicine is a key to improve the quality of life of the population.

Physicians need to be spontaneous learners

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog.

Curing implies being based on the secure knowledge of the problem that is being faced but also having the capacity to extend the boundaries of this knowledge based on the finding of diagnosis. To do so physicians need to have an extreme learning capacity to be permanently updated on the findings in the specific patient’s case and the findings of colleagues in the medical community.

…ordinary people do;
they raise when they do what they love;
but they elevate much more when they do what they love
and love what they do…

An analogy to guide reflection

Only those who love what they do
can access the real knowledge
of what they are doing….

Paradoxical diagnoses – Fallacies are not reasoning errors

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

Until the development of integral logic, fallacies were considered reasoning or foundation errors. This research has demonstrated that fallacies are not errors; instead they are functional conducts or behaviors that ascertain beliefs or needs.
Fallacies respond to four elements that condition it:
– the capacity to reason
– the capacity to relate emotionally
– the capacity to elaborate frustrations
– the strategic style and stereotype from which the individual approaches reality

A fallacy is an unconscious lie. Fallacies rely on ethics based on intentions rather than on acts. That is why there are cultures, worldwide, considered less trustworthy. This happens, quite naturally, when the ethics of such culture lets intentionality supersede functionality.
Fallacies are the drivers of many human activities achieved through evasion from a reality man are unable to face. Man needs fallacies to face situations that affect his self-esteem; in turn, people gather to share fallacies.
Ordinary people are set apart by strengths and united by weaknesses. Therefore, what joins men, among other things, are the fallacies shared as “truths”.

Conceptual structure of fallacies

We have been able to discover the conceptual structure of fallacies and validate it analyzing the most significant fallacies incurred by human beings. To do so we considered the accepted bibliography on fallacies and developed their implicit logic.
Then we have validated the logic of fallacies through applications, and developed the predictions in order to validate their functionality.
Fallacies are, as described at the beginning, mental constructions in which the individual perceives apparent facts; he contextualizes them within a framework of hypothetical ideas so as to confirm a preexisting belief. It is the “negation” of scientific thought that, due to its characteristics, is eminently temporary and never confirms beliefs.
Fallacies become extreme and destroy themselves, thus becoming dysfunctional, when the facts these are based on are unreal, and require relying on a truth not to satisfy beliefs, but needs.
The difference between belief and need is based on the fact that belief is functional to an individual in his environment, whereas need is mandatory in its contribution to the individual’s survival. When need prevails, fallacy becomes what we may call a “lie” with a foundational appearance.
The difference between fallacy and lie is based on the fact that in fallacy there is at least the presence of apparent facts and foundational hypothesis. In the case of non-conscious “lies”, there are unreal facts and ideas are truths.

Unicist education for the elites

To translate this post click on your flag in the right menu of the blog’s homepage.

The elites are responsible for proposing new ways to foster evolution. The education of the elites is one of the problems that defines if evolution is empowered or inhibited. Because of ideological reasons, many cultures do not foster the education of the gifted and talented. Other cultures, as it is seen in the following excerpt, research to find the best ways to foster their gifted and talented members.

The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT)

“The National Research Center on Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT) current 5-year research plan will lead to empirical and descriptive understandings of “what works in gifted education.” This plan requires the integrated study of identification systems, model-based curricula in reading and math, and assessments. The focus of the research study will be to: (a) extend and enhance prior studies by developing a defensible identification system; (b) analyze the effects of curricular units in reading and math on students identified using traditional and expanded criteria; and (c) measure outcomes using extended standards-based assessments, structured performance assessments, or standardized achievement measures. An identification system will be created to be responsive to students from across all cultural groups and from all socioeconomic groups. In the spring of 2008, a talent pool of grade 2 students will be identified using the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, Cognitive Abilities Test, and teacher rating scales. This talent pool, as well as their classmates, will participate in the math or reading curriculum (randomly assigned at the school level) in grade 3 (2008-2009 academic year). In the spring of 2009, a second group of grade 2 students will be identified using the same criteria, and they will participate in the reading or math curriculum along with their classmates during the 2009-2010 academic year…..”  http://www.gifted.uconn.edu/NRCGT.html
