Avi Weisfogel, DDS is the creator of the Dental Sleep Masters Model. Sleep treatment is a relatively new area of science that many dentists are becoming interested in. Using oral appliances to help alleviate sleep problems is becoming more and more popular. It has been reported that 90 percent of people with obstructive sleep apnea are not even aware of their condition.
Dr. Weisfogel’s goal was to use a tested practice model to help dentists diagnose and treat patients more effectively. Sleep apnea is related to serious conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. By increasing the diagnose procedures, more people can get the help they need to stay healthy for a longer period of time.
The new system created has helped both primary and secondary care physicians to identify the condition more often as well. Physicians and dentists alike can help offer clinical support to suffers of sleep apnea. As more things are discovered, it is believed that the opportunities in the field will increase. As new devices evolve, more people will respond positively to them and therefore the industry will grow.
Most earlier devices were too large and bulky to help suffers, because they were uncomfortable. As they get smaller and smaller, there will be more demand for the devices.
Dr. Weisfogel established his own dental practice in 1989. He managed the office for over 15 years. During this time, he began researching sleep problems and how dentists could help patients get better sleep. He started several companies related to the sleep disorder problem.
In 2014. Dr. Avi Weisfogel started Dental Sleep Masters. He holds seminars and workshops to help dentists and physicians learn about the benefits of the treatments available. He earned a BA Degree in biology from Rutgers. He earned is DDS from New York University.
CTCA has joined hands with Allscripts Sunrise and NantHealth to roll out the Clinical Pathways program. The program will link up NantHealth’s eviti® solutions and Allscript’s electronic health record (HER), thus enhancing an efficient cancer treatment process and smooth delivery of clinical services by medical practitioners. NantHealth brought with it a clinical operating system, NantOS that incorporates a database for cancer care.
Benefits to Patients
As stated in this article, Clinical Pathways will integrate a compilation of cancer research reports from oncologists drawn from across the United States and beyond. These reports improve cancer treatment, which makes them the best patient-centered medical advancement in the recent times. This integration will also link up patients and medical practitioners as well as individual partner patients with the clinical teams that they may require. With this kind of partnership, patients will have a clear understanding of their diagnosis and treatment process. On top of that, Clinical Pathways will provide patient treatment data to health insurance providers to hasten insurance approval when the need arises. Patients at any of the five CTCA hospitals will have access to these services.
Benefits to Physicians
According to Wikipedia, physicians will also have their fair share of benefits from Clinical Pathways. The program will offer them a platform to solicit reliable and accurate medical information from Evidence-Based Medical Library. The library has more than 2,700 cancer treatment prescriptions and regimens compiled from government agencies and oncology associations. These regimens details expected treatment costs and clinical outcomes.
CTCA is a conglomeration of five hospitals that specializes in cancer treatment across the U.S. Founded by Richard Stephenson in 1988, the organization was initially headquartered in Illinois but was later moved to Boca Raton, Florida.
During the first 17 years, the organization was operating in only one hospital: the Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Illinois. The other four hospitals have been established in four different states, including Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Georgia.
