Diagnostic Health Center has implemented a new Web-based patient referral management platform that streamlines the prior authorization process for its imaging services.

According to Ed Field, director of imaging services for Diagnostic Health, the automated processing technology helps patients get imaging procedures approved and scheduled faster while saving time and money for referring physician offices in the Beaumont-Port Arthur region.

SETMA’s soon-to-be 21 years of healthcare delivery can logically be seen in three seven-year segments:

• 1995-2002 – marked by the development of a team approach to healthcare, electronic medical records, which morphed into electronic medical management, population health, and the foundation of analytics and data management with 1999-sentinel events that continue to define our care delivery.

I do enjoy the winter break from heat and weeds and daily responsibility outside in the yard but really welcome some “inspiration” during these colder months. And what a more perfect place to go for inspiration than the great gardens of the world. Versailles is such a garden. In these stately French green spaces with their topiaries and fountains and lakes, you can just imagine yourself in formalwear with nothing to do but stroll the paths and eat bon-bons.

Ahhh, Peter, the loudmouth, the out front one, the oft spokesperson for the disciples, the leader, and the one to get into major trouble while serving the Lord – we can learn from him. He, perhaps, was an unlikely candidate for Christian service, but his life should serve as an example of forgiveness to those of us who would follow in his footsteps.

Q. I was renting a house with two of my friends. The house burned down because of the electrical fault. We still have six months more to go on lease. We did not have a renter’s insurance. The fire was not our fault. We lost most of our property. We assume the owner has insurance. Can we file to recover for our damages? Can we get compensation toward rent?
