This commentary analyzes the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model within a framework of the 8 basic payment methods in health care. PCMHs are firmly within the feefor-service tradition. Changes to the process and structure of the Resource Based Relative Value Scale, which underlies almost all physician fee schedules, could make PCMHs more financially viable. Of the alternative payment methods being considered, shared savings models are unlikely to transform medical practice whereas capitation models place unrealistic expectations on providers to accept epidemiological risk. Episode payment may strike a feasible balance for PCMHs, with newly available episode definitions presenting opportunities not previously available. © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2017) - CHANCE6 Studios, an indie-gaming consulting firm and developer of cutting-edge games, is proud to announce its presence at this year's PAX East conference, scheduled to take place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), March 10th-12th. The event, one of the largest of its kind (matched only by its sister conference, PAX West), draws tens of thousands of attendees each year looking to see, hear and experience the insanity of over a hundred thousand square feet of show floor and all genres, platforms and styles of games represented. The technical wizards behind the groundbreaking, third-person psychological thriller, COLINA: Legacy (CL), will be on hand to showcase the exciting new video game's features throughout the conference at booth #12128 -- which has been cleverly designed to replicate the eerie aesthetics of the game itself. CL evangelist, Sean Slavik of CHANCE6 Studios, could not be more excited about the game's upcoming debut: "COLINA: Legacy has been a true labor of love for the talented team that has spent over two years creating the most user-immersive experience possible," he states. "As a tribute to the game's incredible storyline -- and added treat for attendees -- we have decided to upgrade the traditional booth experience by formatting the 20'x20' space to reflect 'granny's kitchen' -- an eerie vision from CL's complex world of horror and suspense." Falling under the genres of psychological horror, indie, adventure and puzzle, CL explores player perspective and achieves complexity while not losing its simplicity, providing an enjoyable, thrilling experience to its players. Set to last about six hours for the experienced gamer, the CL plot follows a young boy, Alex, as he navigates through a house of horrors while deciphering clues, analyzing puzzles, and engaging in combat. The experience is designed to provoke innovative thinking within the player and help cultivate problem-solving skills. Scheduled to officially launch winter 2017, CL will be available in North America and additional markets -- for a very reasonable $15.00 (USD) -- on platforms including Xbox One, PS4, PC, Linux. Built using UNITY, a top game development platform, CL currently offers subtitles in over 30 languages and features voice acting in seven languages with a potential to expand -- Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese (Brazilian), French, Spanish, German and English. Unlike other horror games, CL refrains from the use of explicit gore and violence, while focusing on strong storylines, pacing and ambience to build and exploit tension. "We look forward to entertaining the thousands of enthusiastic gamers anticipated at this year's PAX East conference," Slavik adds. "We invite attendees to step into 'granny's kitchen' -- if they dare -- and get up close to a captivating world of horror and psychological intrigue. Just like our main character Alex, booth goers may just find themselves hoping for a safe passage out..." The creators of COLINA: Legacy will also be giving away three-day passes to 10 lucky winners for the long sold-out show. Interested parties are simply asked to share the COLINA: Legacy contest image on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (or all three) with the copy "This #CLSwan wants to go to #PAXEast17!" and tag COLINA: Legacy. You can find the complete rules and guidelines here. To reserve the opportunity to demo CL at PAX East, please click here.

Aims & objectives: Twenty-six cancer survivor volunteers participated in a study of the efficacy of perceived relaxation after performing restorative yoga combined with Reiki. Results: Subjects scoring high ratings of Meaning and Peace in life demonstrated greater perception of depth of relaxation. A comparison of subjects receiving concurrent Reiki (19) and restorative yoga with those who only received restorative yoga (7) showed that Reiki subjects experienced greater perceived depth of relaxation than subjects who were not afforded the Reiki intervention. Non-Reiki participants also showed more difficulty overcoming intrusive fearful thoughts than the Reiki group. Conclusions: Clinical implications suggest that patients should be screened and treated for trauma-like symptoms including intrusive thoughts linked to anxiety and depression before referral to complementary programs that offer meditative or relaxation interventions. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
