A genuine opportunity exists to reform medical and long-term care systems to be more responsive to people's needs and preferences and provide efficient, cost-effective care delivery. California is preparing to test models of integration for those dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid that aim to improve care while managing costs. The SCAN Foundation has created a conceptual framework for guiding investments in California and beyond that is intended to create a more "person-centered"system that integrates medical care and supportive services. This article describes the foundation's vision and framework for creating a more person-centered system and its support of California's efforts in achieving this goal. Source

An SLI cosmetology image sensor captures one or more images of an anatomical feature and generates a 3D surface map of the anatomical feature using SLI techniques. A feature detection module processes the 3D surface map to detect certain characteristics of the anatomical feature. Feature data of the anatomical feature is generated such as size, shape and texture. A feature analysis module processes the feature data. The feature analysis module compares the anatomical feature to prior images and feature data for the anatomical feature. The feature analysis module categorizes the anatomical feature based on templates and correlations of types of features.

Methods and devices for improving measurements of test meter, and in particular for detecting a presence of an electrochemical sensor or strip in the test meter and a start time of an electrochemical reaction, are provided. In one exemplary embodiment of an electrochemical system includes an electrochemical sensor, a test meter, and a circuit. The circuit is configured to form an electrical connection with the electrochemical sensor such that the circuit can detect three distinct voltage ranges. The voltage ranges can be indicative of an absence of the electrochemical sensor, a presence of the sensor that is devoid of a sample, and a presence of the sensor with a sample. Test meters, methods for detecting when a sample starts to fill an electrochemical sensor for establishing when a reaction starts, and circuits for use with electrochemical strips, are also provided.

An SLI medical image sensor system captures one or more images of a skin lesion and generates a 3D surface map of the skin lesion using SLI techniques. A feature detection module processes the 3D surface map to detect certain characteristics of the skin lesion. Feature data of the skin lesion is generated such as size, shape and texture. A feature analysis module processes the feature data of the skin lesion. The feature analysis module compares the skin lesion to prior images and feature data for the skin lesion. The feature analysis module categorizes the skin lesion based on templates and correlations of types of features.
