Protests in multiple Chinese cities over the strict COVID-19 policies enforced by China’s government reflect the growing sentiment of people around the world. We’re tired of the pandemic, and tired of the myriad ways the SARS-CoV-2 virus has changed our lives forever. But the demonstrations in China also reflect a more specific, local frustration with a strategy for controlling the virus that every other country in the world has long since left behind.

China’s zero-COVID strategy is an extension of the drastic measures instituted, not only in that country but in others around the world, including the U.S., during the early days of the pandemic in an effort to quash the virus as quickly as possible. That made sense at the beginning when people had no immunity to the virus, and there were no vaccines or treatments to fight it. In fact, instituting lockdowns and keeping people from mingling are

As part of the Digital Innovation Hub at La Trobe University, Cisco’s Innovation Central Melbourne set out to define digital literacy for healthcare. With this initiative, Cisco and La Trobe University examined how the healthcare workforce can become more digitally driven, with data and technology creating valuable insights, enhanced clinical efficiencies and knowledge-flow-to-value for patients.

Digital literacy is using technology and tools to lead to more efficient use of staff, better care coordination, improved patient experience and better enterprise performance against key performance indicators (KPIs), such as: bed turnover rate, average length of stay, occupancy rate, and patient satisfaction.

The big picture is not just about technology. Digital culture is also focused on social and cultural issues, communication, and collaboration.

This data collection draws on Medicare and Medicaid administrative data to present national and state-level information on people who are covered by both Medicare and Medicaid, referred to as Medicare-Medicaid enrollees (also known as dually-enrolled beneficiaries). Medicare-Medicaid enrollees qualify for Medicare coverage on the basis of age (65 and older) or disability. To qualify for Medicaid benefits, Medicare beneficiaries must meet eligibility criteria based on financial (related to income and wealth) and non-financial (generally, age or disability) requirements. For “partial benefit” enrollees, Medicaid pays Medicare premiums and, in many cases, also pays Medicare’s deductibles and cost-sharing on behalf of Medicare-Medicaid enrollees. Medicare-Medicaid enrollees who also receive the full range of Medicaid benefits that are not covered by Medicare are generally referred to as “full benefit” enrollees. This data collection includes the number of Medicare-Medicaid enrollees and Medicare and Medicaid spending on these enrollees.
