16.9.19: Canada: Dentists recognize oral cancer

The prognosis of oral and jaw cancer is still poor. Advances in treatment have only minimally improved survival rates. If, on the other hand, the cancer is detected at an early stage, the survival rate is around 80 percent over five years. From Canada comes the news that dentists in Ontario have detected more cases of oral cancer and its precursors than ever before. A team from the Department of Dentistry of the University of Toronto examined 63,438 biopsies performed between 2005 and 2015. There was a sharp increase in the total number of carcinomas and dysplasias diagnosed by dentists. A total of 828 cases of oral cancer between 2005 and 2015 and 2,679 premalignant lesions were diagnosed. Over the years, however, the percentage of oral cancer diagnoses rose significantly. In 2005, when only 56 cases of cancer and 99 cases of oral epithelial dysplasia were detected by biopsy, by 2015 the number had doubled to 103, with dysplasias actually tripling and reaching 374 diagnoses in 2015. The authors lead the increase u.a. back to comprehensive training and education programs. While advanced oral cancers are relatively easy to detect, early stages and premalignant lesions could easily be overlooked without special training.

01.07.19: Doctors, dentists and IT experts agree: telematics infrastructure is not safe
The medical associations MEDI GENO and the Free Medical Association as well as the Free Association of German Dentists (FVDZ) warned of dangerous security gaps in the telematics infrastructure (TI) last Thursday at a joint press conference in Berlin. In addition to the representatives of the medical and dental profession, two IT experts and a lawyer also sounded the alarm that the patient data was massively threatened by forced networking and centralized storage. A major criticism is the lack of testing of the system. Werner Baumgärtner, chairman of MEDI GENO, stated that security tests for the connection of the practices to the TI are forbidden by law. Security researcher Hartmut Pohl stated that there is a high risk potential for centralized data storage: “We have 100 million authorized access points in the health sector, and centralized data storage makes hacker attacks easy.” What happens to patient data can be seen in the USA, “where a patient file is illegally used a sum of between $ 500 and $ 1,000 is traded. ” Silke Lüder, Deputy Chairwoman of the Free Medical Association, said that the Digital Policy of Minister of Health Jens Spahn is raising the level of medical confidentiality: “For me, this is a digital rape if I am forced to save my patients’ data in this way.” FVDZ Federal Council Member Bertram Steiner emphasized that dentists are fundamentally open to digital developments. But they have to be meaningful. “We know where digitalization benefits the patient and where it only unnecessarily devours money.” The medical associations are now planning to sue both the Kassenärztlichen associations for the reduction in fees as well as for faulty installations.

After a successful exam, Ms. Jovanovic leaves us to change her career. We wish her all the best and also colleague Stuckenberg moves on for further education. With both we lose popular employees.

5.6 .: the electronic patient record as Mr. Spahn’s all-purpose weapon to improve the healthcare industry. Be skeptical, as this article from the Free Association of German Dentists suggests:

EPO: Data protection apparently secondary
It is rarely considered, but has long been legal: Even in the hospital, only the respective physicians may access the patient data. Now, with the accelerated introduction of electronic patient records (ePA), this principle seems to be systematically and deliberately disregarded. According to representatives of Gematik, in view of the short deadlines, it is necessary to cut corners and have decided to first introduce the patient file and later to allow selective access rights. That is, when a patient grants access to a doctor, “all or nothing” applies. For example, if a patient wants to give information to her dentist from the file, he or she can also see the data of the gynecologist. “It is a basic promise of the electronic patient record that insured persons can decide for themselves whom they want to provide which data,” explains health spokeswoman for the Greens, Maria Klein-Schmeink. So the acceptance is put at risk. Spahn bears the responsibility for his “exclusively politically motivated deadline”. The political spokeswoman for the FDP, Christine Aschenberg-Dugnus, complained: “The fact that the government is presenting a semi-finished product is another loss of confidence in digitization.” Patients have a right to a safe patient record. The Federal Ministry of Health, meanwhile, confirmed that there will be no possibility for patients to individually adjust their electronic file in such a way that, depending on the doctor, only part of the information can be viewed. That’s what you‘re working on, said a spokesman. (The Ministry of Health might have to get a few tips from Estonia, where all this has worked for years. Dr. R.)

Our recommendation: Let Mr. Spahn feel that as a patient and voter you are not amused about such a policy.

08./09.11 .: The practice is legally forced to join the telematics. A, as we find, completely useless and dangerous process (s.u.). Especially since the only previous “benefit” is to verify your identity on behalf of the health insurance companies.
All other promised benefits are still in the stars – except the additional administrative burden and costs (not only the cost of about 4000 €, but also monthly maintenance costs of 80 €). The connection worked – contrary to all fears – smoothly. For a big praise to the Telekom.

This of course fits the message from Heise Security that the started with much hype patient record of private and public health insurance, now already serious safety deficiencies. More about this under the article link

9.11 .: “Patients should only use the latest cards.

Outdated health cards are causing delays and problems with online data reconciliation in practices. The Federal Ministry of Health has now asked the health insurance companies to inform their insured persons: they should only use the latest card. The KBV (Kassenärztliche Bundesvereinigung) expressly welcomes the initiative of the ministry. “It is high time that the health insurances provide the insured persons with the latest cards – and these are also used,” said Drs. Thomas Kriedel, board member of the KBV.

As far as a section of the DZW Article 42/2018. You will ask yourself, what does that have to do with me? Since we will receive our compulsory connection to the telematics from next week (s.o.) From then on, we CAN NOT read obsolete maps anymore. This was still possible with the old devices – the new devices will not accept these old cards anymore. Even a replacement procedure (written certificate from the health insurance that you are insured there) is no longer possible.
If you come with an old card in the practice, so we can not treat you then unfortunately. There are then only two options for you: Ask the KK, if a new insurance card is present (possibly already sent, but not plugged?) Or treat yourself as a private patient and to have the bill reimbursed by your health insurance / insurance.

09.11 .: Sold as latest development from America – a computer sensor that measures periodontitis markers (see article from the Dental Tribune). We have been offering such marker systems here in practice for more than 3 years (Oralyser) and we do not need sensors or computers, just a little bit of your spook and 10 minutes of time.

13.11 .: Big Cinema: Freddie Mercury’s teeth

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody” about the career of the band Queen is very successful in the German cinemas, especially the Freddie Mercury actor Rami Malek shines in his role. Even visually, there is hardly any difference to the original. This is partly due to the work of Christian Lyons. The Briton designs with his company “Fangs FX” for decadesteeth and prostheses for numerous film and television productions. Also in “Bohemian Rhapsody” Lyons is responsible for Mercury’s characteristic teeth, including the unmistakable Vorbiss. To find the perfect model for Rami Malek, five different sets of different sizes were made, one of which was perfect. It’s a child of magic!

September

01/09/18: Increase of additional contributions: Health insurance companies often provide inadequate information. The Federal Insurance Office (BVA) reminds in its annual report that some health insurance companies inform their insured rather reluctantly and inadequately about changes of the cash-specific additional contributions. Insured or competing health insurance companies have “regularly brought problems in connection with the information of the insured persons about the collection or increase of the additional contribution rates to the Federal Insurance Office” in the last year. According to the current legal situation, health insurance companies have to provide a separate letter when introducing or increasing the additional cash contribution. If the additional contribution rate exceeds the average additional contribution rate, the health insurance company must point out a special termination right. Examinations of the information letters showed that only in some cases did the information letter correspond to the legal situation completely. The BVA criticized that some health insurance companies linked the information letter with advertising, so that the insured did not make use of their special right of termination.

09/11/18: Physician Monitor 2018: Physicians complain of bureaucracy burden. Doctors spend 7.4 hours per week on administrative work and seven hours on psychotherapists. Thus, the bureaucracy burden in the practices is consistently high. This is confirmed by current figures from the Physician’s Monitor 2018, which the Kassenärztliche Bundesvereinigung (KBV) has published in advance. Administrative work has the second largest share of medical and psychotherapeutic working hours after the patient consultation. “Every minute more bureaucracy is missing in patient care and frustrating the doctors,” Dr. Thomas Kriedel, Member of the Board of KBV “Here you have to start, if you want to generate more treatment time.” The goal must be to reduce bureaucracy continuously and not – as the regulations of the appointment service and pension law fear – continue to increase. More than half of the doctors and psychotherapists surveyed said they did not have enough time for their patients.
For the survey, around 11,000 contract physicians and contract psychotherapists were surveyed throughout Germany on practical issues. All results will be presented in October.

And there are only a few benefits – apart from the participating companies, which earn about 3000 – 4000 € per practice -. The second message, however, can be heard and recognize the direction in the industry, politicians and health insurance companies want to go … namely your data – so defend yourself!

Telematics Infrastructure (TI): Politicians think extension of time is possible
The connection of the medical and dental practices to the TI is problematic and tedious. The main reason for this is the delivery difficulties of the industry. By December 31, 2018, all practices should be connected to the TI and be the first application to be able to carry out the insurance master data management (VSDM). So far, about 20,000 practices of the approximately 200,000 practices participate in the TI, so it is unrealistic that the deadline can be met by the end of the year. The Federal Dentistry Association (KZBV) has long been advocating an extension of the deadline. The KZBV calls for the abolition of sanctioning and auxiliary extension until 31.12.2019. Meanwhile, politicians also plead a turnaround. The health politician Tino Sorge (CDU) demands a “rapid rethinking” in the rollout of the TI. “The doctors are not to blame. They must be protected against unjustified sanctions, “said Sorge. He also does not believe in the set deadline. “We are at a crossroads in the TI rollout. Now pragmatism and team spirit are needed – among service providers, payers and industry, “said Sorge. Health politicians of the FDP and AfD have already spoken in favor of extending the deadline until 31.12.2019. Source: Ärzteblatt

For your info: insured master data management – sounds so huge, but is only an address check, the doctors / dentists was stopped; i.e. We do small-scale tasks for your health insurance – so you can of course save administrative costs. And a huge step for the bureaucracy and less for the people.

And the second message shows what industry, health insurance companies and politicians are all about:

Medical profession protests against cash access to practice management systems
When expanding an electronic patient record (ePA), there are currently considerations of granting health insurance companies direct access to the practice management systems of physicians and psychotherapists. Well-informed circles report that the Federal Ministry of Health is approaching the AOK model for the ePA. The Kassenärztliche Federal Association (KBV) and the Kassenarztliche associations (KVen) were outraged and vehemently reject the plans. “We will not accept systems that interfere with our practice systems, as currently promoted by a type of cash. Access by a third party is unacceptable to us, “it says in a joint statement.
Moreover, according to the wishes of Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn, members of the statutory health insurance (SHI) should be able to view their patient data via mobile phone and tablet by 2021 at the latest. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the CDU politician wants to make the corresponding health insurance plans this month. Source: KBV, änd, Ärzteblatt

Stiftung Warentest “checks supplementary dental insurance

In the meantime, more than 15 million legally insured persons have taken out private supplementary dental insurance. But the market for additional policies is not very transparent. Most insurers offer different rates with different levels of benefits.

13.03 .: Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are suspected to trigger head and neck tumors. Research from the University of Rochester has now revealed why these viruses can survive unnoticed in the mouth and throat. More in ZWP – online …..

18.03 .: Supplementary insurances – in times of high dentist costs, the business of supplementary insurances is booming – but the variety is confusing and difficult for the layman to understand. The magazine Ökotest made a comparison between the common Internet comparison portals a few weeks ago (Dec. 2017) and came to rather poor results. The article can be viewed on request in our practice. Our recommendation is still a personal consultation with one of the consumer centers. However, you should be aware of what you need for treatment or need in the near future. For this you are welcome to make a consultation and diagnosis appointment with us (we will prepare a private consultation agreement beforehand depending on your temporal consulting needs).

18.03 .: Lately, cases are accumulating in which certain health insurance companies (Pioneer here is the DAK) Reclaiming money for already incorporated dentures for formal reasons. In the past it was assumed in good agreement with a repair or loss of dentures that the processing by your health insurance company went without any problems “over the stage”.
Unfortunately, in times of electronic retrievability of data, this is no longer the case. Thus the KZV Hessen writes: “Starting from the billing month January 2018 … treatment plans which are in need of authorization and whose date of incorporation lies before the approval date, can no longer be billed, because the health insurance companies regularly object to such cases in the context of a reporting procedure”.
And also in North Rhine reported only on Saturday the KZV chairman Ralf Wagner of such practices. Now, other funds such as the BKK Euregio have discovered this “playground” and demand money back for a periodontitis treatment already provided, if the prescribed X-rays are not exactly 6 months old!!
This would mean that we would not get paid for our treatment and might even have to pay it back.
If the cash register would be so bad …. but with a financial reserve of 19.2 billion euros and a profit from 2017 of 3 billion euros alone, my understanding of such harassment slowly ceases.
So far, we have always ignored this because of your emergency situation, but unfortunately this is no longer possible with the growing rage of some coffers. We weredn, however, do everything possible to keep the waiting and processing time as short as possible and the usual speed to offer you even wieterhin can. It should not fail us – but you steam your cash – you pay them eventually! IWW online 25.2.18, own research 17-3-18

6.2.18: Verband der Ersatzkassen (vdek) publishes survey on medical care

The vast majority of the German population is satisfied with the medical care, this is the result of a Forsa survey of 1,000 insured persons commissioned by vdek. 30% of respondents are very satisfied with the status quo and 55% are satisfied. The majority of respondents also respect the performance principles of the statutory health insurance (SHI). Rising costs of benefits in SHI should, according to respondents, not be imposed on the insured, but should be financed jointly by employees and employers or by the state through tax subsidies. Moreover, 60% believe that additional costs for social care insurance should be financed by state subsidies through tax subsidies. Only nine percent are in favor of additional private protection.

16.02.2018: Financial test: Which health insurance company grants which subsidy to the PZR? The journal “Finanztest” has now determined which statutory health insurance companies pay which grants for professional dental cleaning (PZR). Forty-two of the 74 health insurances pay this subsidy, which usually ranges between € 35 and € 60. This is what the magazine published in its March issue. “Financial test” shows in a table, how much the respective health insurance pays the insured regardless of any pre-existing conditions for a PZR. For the grant, they have to submit the bill to their fund office and possibly be enrolled in a bonus program, but they do not fulfill any other conditions. The highest subsidy among the funds opened nationwide – a total of 60 euros per year – is provided by DAK Gesundheit, BKK VBU and Viactiv KK. For the additional payment of up to 500 euros per year at the AOK Lower Saxony, some rules apply: for example, the high budget for various extra services overall.
