The video above provides an overview of the Colorado Health Information Exchange – CORHIO (TM). What I found particularly instructive about this video was the discussion around the risk reduction and healthcare savings.

The Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis Part 22: The Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) of membrane transporters

glucose_2

Professors Bernard Thorens and Mike Mueckler have written a review titled ‘Glucose Transporters in the 21st Century‘.

In the article they note that the glucose transporters (members of the GLUT family) are part of the Major Facilitator Superfamily of Membrane Transporters (e.g. see this paper).

This superfamily of membrane transporters is responsible for transporting a large variety of compounds across the cell membrane and along an electrochemical gradient.

The Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis Part 21: Glucose as a Signalling Molecule

glucose_2

Professors Bernard Thorens and Mike Mueckler have written a 2010 review titled ‘Glucose Transporters in the 21st Century‘.

In their paper they note that Glucose not just a source of energy but is also a signalling molecule. Thus they state that Glucose influences various processes including

(a) The activity of neurons that regulate Glucose (e.g. see this paper)

(b) Gene transcription

(c) Enzyme activity

PMD Health Information Exchange

The pMD® YouTube channel features a video on the pMD DATA EXCHANGE (TM).  The amusing back story in the video is that transfer of health information has been happening for a very long time – only in paper format. The possibilities for exchange of information using digital data is transformative – the point of Health Information Exchanges.

Developing Health Information Exchange Capabilities

There is a good overview of the benefits of Health Information Exchanges (HIE’s) in this video on the YouTube Channel of The Journal of the American Health Information Management Association. The narrator argues for HIE leaders to network and build a body of knowledge on key issues. These issues include change management, capabilities, engagement and healthcare cost efficiencies.
