Why Medicaid fails to provide reliable non-emergency medical transportation

Medicaid fails to provide reliable non-emergency medical transportation, state report finds

Audit: 32 acts of potential mistreatment of at-risk Colorado adults were never reported!


The state department that administers Colorado’s Medicaid program failed to provide proper oversight of its contracted transportation service, and didn’t report incidents that could have involved mistreatment of at-risk adults, according to audit results published Monday.
Some of the 32 unreported incidents potentially involved drivers “not safely securing (Medicaid) recipients into vehicles, resulting in recipients falling out of their seats,” Stefanie Winzeler, team leader at the state auditor’s office, told state lawmakers on the Legislative Audit Committee. “This could be caretaker neglect due to the provider not securing or providing adequate physical care to the recipient.”
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing administers Colorado’s Medicaid program, which provides health care coverage to 1.5 million low-income people and people with disabilities. The state is required to provide non-emergent medical transportation, or NEMT, to Medicaid recipients who need help getting to their scheduled appointments. The federal government reimburses Colorado 50 cents for every $1 the state spends on NEMT services.
From July 2020 to August 2021, the department contracted with the broker IntelliRide to run the NEMT program statewide. This included coordinating transportation for Medicaid recipients, paying transportation providers, and billing the department for reimbursement, according to the audit report released Monday. IntelliRide, which is part of the global public transportation company Transdev, was paid $2.9 million to administer the program.
After each of the 32 instances of potential passenger mistreatment, the health care policy department should have reported what happened to Adult Protective Services or law enforcement, according to the audit report. All of the incidents occurred during the audit period of July 2020 to February 2021 when IntelliRide was the statewide contractor.
Some incidents involved injuries, Winzeler told lawmakers, and some involved a driver speeding or running red lights with the Medicaid recipient in the vehicle — which “could also be considered caretaker neglect if the caretaker created a hostile or fearful environment,” Winzeler said.
During the audit period, 35,423 Coloradans covered by Medicaid received approximately 640,500 non-emergency rides to medical appointments, for a monthly average of 80,100 rides.
“Unfortunately, it was not surprising, but really concerning,” Julie Reiskin, executive director of the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, said of the unreported incidents of potential mistreatment. Reiskin, who uses a wheelchair and has spent years advocating for people with disabilities, said that most of the transportation-related safety concerns she hears involve cab drivers.
Reiskin believes having more people at the health care policy department help to oversee the NEMT program could have helped with that issue. “Given everything, (the staff member) did a great job, but they had one person doing this for the whole state,” she said. The department has since assigned another full-time equivalent staff member to NEMT, according to the audit report.
For people mistreated by someone driving them to an appointment, Reiskin recommends filing a complaint with Medicaid as well as with the Public Utilities Commission, if the driver worked for a cab company. They should also involve an outside advocate such as the Cross-Disability Coalition or Disability Law Colorado, she said.
The attorney general’s office also takes complaints about abuse, neglect and exploitation through its Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Millions paid for ‘noncompliant claims’

The department paid IntelliRide $33.2 million to reimburse it for transportation services provided during the audit period. But auditors found that $291,600 of that money went to pay claims “that did not comply with federal and state requirements.” Some claims that IntelliRide submitted for reimbursement, and which the department paid, did not include details supporting that the rides were actually provided, while other claims were overpaid, and some claims requested reimbursement for rides that didn’t take people to medical appointments.
Another $5.18 million — approximately 16% of what the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing paid IntelliRide for services during the audit period — went to “potentially noncompliant” claims, such as taxi rides that may have been reimbursed at the wrong rates, according to the report.
Meanwhile, many Medicaid recipients who raised concerns about IntelliRide were essentially ignored.
More than two-thirds of the complaints Medicaid recipients filed with IntelliRide about the medical transportation service were not resolved, the audit found, including 75 complaints about health or safety risks that IntelliRide never investigated or reported to the department.
“The report was just released this morning and we are still in the process (of) reviewing all items very carefully,” Mitun Seguin, vice president of marketing and communications for IntelliRide, told Newsline in a Monday email. “From a high level, we agree with the findings and have already been taking corrective actions on many of these items already. We have also been seeing good progress in several areas. We take all feedback very seriously and will be ensuring corrective action in all the areas of concern.”

Changes to non-emergency transportation

As of this month, IntelliRide is no longer the statewide NEMT administrator. The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing moved to have IntelliRide administer NEMT for just nine Front Range counties — Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, Larimer and Weld — while Medicaid recipients in the remaining 55 counties must contact transportation providers directly to schedule appointments.
“By moving to this hybrid model, we received some positive initial feedback from advocates and stakeholders,” Kim Bimestefer, director of the department, told lawmakers during the Monday hearing.
Reiskin agreed the new model might be for the best.
“When you build these statewide contracts, they often don’t work well in rural areas,” Reiskin said. She pointed out that coordinating medical transportation in smaller communities requires building relationships with providers, including those that may not necessarily be technologically savvy.
But the real problem, according to Reiskin, is that there are areas of the state that don’t have any transportation providers.
“I think telemedicine is helping to some extent with that,” she said, adding that in-person visits are sometimes necessary.
Medicaid should also make sure that people who need to travel long distances to appointments receive adequate funds to cover food and lodging, Reiskin said.
“So you have a critically ill child and you’re having to already take time off work — you know, most of these folks are paid hourly — it would be nice to at least give them enough to stay somewhere safe and eat while they’re with their child,” she explained.
The department agreed with how auditors said it should improve NEMT services, and said it would make the recommended changes. Those included:
Implement information technology to pay medical transportation claims in line with state and federal Medicaid requirements, improve documentation of services, recover payments for claims that did not comply with requirements, and investigate potentially noncompliant claims.
Ensure the NEMT contractor meets requirements for reliable transportation and customer service, and establish a process to assess Medicaid recipients’ satisfaction with their transportation services.
Ensure the medical transportation contractor pays local providers accurately, and that it “tracks, resolves, and reports complaints and incidents.”
Report incidents of potential neglect or mistreatment of at-risk adults to law enforcement and Adult Protective Services.

Find the Best EHR With This Checklist
Are you still searching for that "perfect fit" when it comes to your EHR software? The childhood fairy tale Goldilocks and The Three Bears comes to mind when anyone discusses the perfect fit. One may be too large, another too small, but the simplicity of the story offered “one” as being “just right!” It isn’t just a childhood story to expect the same outcome within your practice.  How might that storyline unfold if our main characters were from a small-to-medium size medical practice searching for the perfect electronic health record (EHR)? The “just right” EHR should: Meet the needs of your specialty and unique workflow requirements. Look for templates that are specialty-specific and offer the ability to display the available templates based on the individual specialty of the provider. Within the note, look for the ability to retain the provider’s style both in content and process. Can you incorporate free text, drop-down, point click, by exception dictation, and even Dragon or other voice recognition workflows within the same note? Are you able to add and remove sections or even change the options within a designed picklist on the fly? Provide a flexible appointment scheduling module. An EHR system should accommodate your scheduling needs. It should recognize the need for appointments to be scheduled, modified, rescheduled, and deleted, even as a reoccurring block of appointments. Maybe your practice needs more flexibility to accommodate walk-in patients, the virtual patients, or the ability to recall a patient for an annual wellness visit. Will the system accommodate these appointment types? And when those appointments are scheduled, can you view a single day across multiple providers on the same screen? Support a positive patient experience. The delivery of healthcare is changing, and adapting can benefit both the patient and the practice. The “just right” fit delivers the following without adding a completely separate process: tele health that works in conjunction with the patient portal unlimited access to your practice and a flexible platform that can adapt to your device of choice so that documentation can be completed simultaneously with clinical care the ability to share data across the practice and reduce the administrative burden to both the provider and the patient (ex: kiosk patient check-in). Help the business management side of the practice.  If services rendered are not reimbursed accurately and in a timely manner, medical practices will not survive to treat the patients. It is a wicked reality. Filing an insurance claim or even being able to obtain the eligibility and authorization for the patient’s insurance is essential to the financial health of a practice. The “just right” EHR will guide the staff through the maze of reimbursement, from the first step of checking eligibility by type of service to providing the necessary alerts to help the staff make the best financial decisions. In a recent article featured in The American Chiropractor, Karna Morrow, Practice EHR’s Implementation Manager provides a more detailed perspective of what "just right" could look like in a multi-disciplinary medical practice.  Continue reading the full article here.  If you would like to learn more about Practice EHR’s solutions and services, please request a free demo by clicking on the tab at the top of our homepage.

“Work From Home” - What COVID-19 Alert Level 3 Means For Businesses
Employsure is here to support business owners to comply with the restrictions under the COVID-19 alert levels. The Government last week outlined the details of what relaxing restrictions from Alert Level 4 would look like, and has now announced the lowered restrictions under Alert Level 3 will come into effect at 11:59pm on Monday 27 April. Alert Level 3 will last for a minimum of a fortnight, and will then be reviewed by the government, before it makes a further decision on 11 May. Business owners that want to open can spend the next week preparing to do so, e.g. get stock etc, but have been asked to stick to social distancing and their bubbles. Schools and Early Learning Centres can be accessed for cleaning, preparation and maintenance. On 28 April, teachers will be allowed into the building – students who can attend will be allowed in the next day. “For those who can work from home during this period, it will allow them to still enable cash flow into their business, while eliminating the risk of spreading the virus between potentially infected employees,” said Employsure Senior Employment Relations Adviser Ashlea Maley. “While this may not be an option for all businesses, it is still the best course of short-term action, to keep things running as smoothly as possible. “Allowing more businesses to resume operations will help reduce the unemployment rate and will allow the economy to begin to correct itself. “While it would be good to see all businesses operating as soon as possible, the risk is still too high.” What businesses are open? Under Alert Level 3, major restrictions apply to hospitality businesses like restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as retail and hardware stores. Non-essential businesses that meet safety guidelines will be allowed to operate, but transactions but must be done through an app or online portal - not be face-to-face. Contactless food delivery or click and collect services must also be adhered to. Businesses that don’t have a customer-facing function and are only accessed by staff can reopen, but staff must practise physical distancing and comply with health and safety standards. The Government’s main message to employers is to still work from home if you can. Schools will open for children up to and including year 10 but physical attendance is voluntary. Those in years 11-13 will continue to learn from home. Looking ahead: “We won’t yet know the full extent the government’s decision to lower the alert level will have on small business owners,” said Ms. Maley. “For those non-essential businesses that can’t operate from home and have to return to the workplace, these next few weeks will be the factor in deciding if the decision to relax restrictions was the right one. “If they stick to good hygiene and abide by the safety measures they put in place, I can see this as a positive step forward. “Employers should ensure all staff are abiding by the rules and should take the correct steps in maximizing safety if a worker breaches them. “The coming months will be a new test for New Zealanders, and it’s up to all of us to work together, to ensure we can come out of this on the other side.” Resource Hub For Employers: To help employers meet this unprecedented challenge, Employsure has built a free Resource Hub, containing workplace policies, communications, checklists and FAQs. All information is free for business owners and can be found at employsure.co.nz/coronavirus #covid19 #newzelandbusiness #employee

What is micropipette used for?
A micropipette is a conjoint yet vital laboratory apparatus used to precisely and exactly hand over capacities of fluid in the microliter assortment. Micropipettes are available with Micropipettes Suppliers in a single network and multi-channel alternatives. Whereas the single network micropipettes are used in laboratories that implement investigation connected to molecular natural science, microbiology, immunology, cell culture, diagnostic chemistry, biochemistry, and heredities, the multichannel micropipettes are suggested for ELISA (investigative test), molecular transmission, dynamic studies, and DNA intensification. Kinds of micropipette found with Micropipettes Dealers Micropipettes can be categorized reliant upon: Functioning Standard: The needle achieves the subsequent two purposes- Air Dislodgment Micropipette: This kind of micropipette efforts on the air dislodgment code. It entails a piston that enunciates and distributes fluid mockups as the air pocket transfers up and down, correspondingly. The inner tool of the pipette does not come in unswerving interaction of the taster/fluid. As an alternative, a throwaway pipette slant is used to pull the fluid into and distribute it from the pipette. 2. Positive Dislodgment Micropipette: In these micropipettes, the piston comes in the shortest interaction of the example. The throwaway tip in a positive dislodgment micropipette is a microneedle created of a tube and a piston (portable inner portion) which unswervingly relocates the fluid. Working Apparatus: Perfunctory Micropipette: These micropipettes are functioned physically founded on a piston-shaft coil device. 2. Microelectronic Micropipette: An electric micropipette is typically computerized. The pronouncing and supply of fluid is done by the one-touch keys as an alternative to physical needle pressing and lowering. Microelectronic pipettes also often permit the operator to generate ritual agendas on the expedient permitting the pipettes to ensemble assorted application requirements. Amount of Stations: Solitary Station Micropipette: A solitary station micropipette available with Micropipettes Dealers is the one that has a solitary station to enunciate or distribute the fluid. 2. Multi-Channel Micropipette: A multi-channel micropipette has manifold stations to enunciate or distribute the fluid. The normally obtainable multi-channel micropipette alternates with Micropipettes Suppliers are the 8 stations, 12 stations, and 16 stations. Multichannel micropipettes decrease the amount of work of a solitary station micropipette when occupied with great dimensions of examples. Capacity/Aptitude: Static Capacity Micropipette: In a static capacity micropipette, the capacity of fluid to be enunciated or distributed remains static. These micropipettes are used when the same capacity of fluid is to be distributed manifold times. 2. Adjustable Capacity Micropipette: This micropipette originates with a precise minutest and extreme capacity variety. The capacity of the fluid to be enunciated or distributed can be attuned (within the tool’s volume range) contingent upon the necessity of the user. Air dislodgment micropipettes function by piston-driven air dislodgment. When the piston is pushed down, the air within the casing of the micropipette gets expelled out due to the clout of which the liquid present in the micropipettes slant also gets detached. When the piston moves up, a void is shaped in the space left empty by the piston. This reasons the air from the slant to rise in instruction to fill the space and the slanted air is then substituted by the fluid, which is drained up into the slant. Positive dislodgment micropipettes function by piston-driven dislodgment. The piston in a positive dislodgment micropipette is in straight interaction with the fluid. When the piston is pushed down, the fluid which is existent in the sleeve of the micropipette bought from Micropipettes Dealers also moves down and gets detached through the slant. When the piston is drawn up, it also pulls the fluid along with it in the ascendant course. Accurate extent of fluid depends on the precise micropipette practice. The air dislodgment micropipettes effort on the common air dislocation code. A plunger is lowered by the thumb and as it is unconstrained, fluid is drained into a throwaway tip. When the plunger is pushed again, the fluid is distributed. In amongst these steps, there are numerous small paces that aid in making the fluid distributing process more exact. Some micropipettes transport the static volume of fluid. Though, the bulk is adaptable with the adjustable volume background.
Employee V/s Entrepreneur | Which Path to choose in 2021?
Introduction to Employee V/s Entrepreneur Employee V/s Entrepreneur. You must have listened to both words. Moreover, Entrepreneurship has become quite popular over the past years. Instead of working as an employee, many people want to start their own business. You may have also listened to your parents, relatives, or people saying to have a secure job. What is right? Should we choose a job and feel secure in our life because entrepreneurship, starting your own business is very risky. While being an entrepreneur can have many important advantages, there are also some issues related to it. Till now you were confused between job and entrepreneurship but after reading this article you will be cleared and you will make a decision on your own, what to do? Because I know both worlds and give you all the pros and cons of employee v/s entrepreneur in the following article. In today’s world, people are very much confused about what to do. Should they take some risk and leave their 9-5 job, or should they build a business with their job? Should people who have their own business also close it? There are unlimited questions like this, but that all questions will be solved as today you will learn the pros and cons of entrepreneurship, job, and shifting from job to entrepreneur. First, let’s see what are the conventional concepts and things which we have been taught till now about employee v/s entrepreneur. What have we been taught about jobs and entrepreneurship? Generally, in most families, we have been taught about having a secured job. The thing which most parents want their children to have is a secured job. But according to the conference board, 53% of Americans are currently unhappy at their job. Then why do they say so? To let their children be unhappy? So we have to choose entrepreneurship right? But According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, shows that approximately 20% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. Only 25% of new businesses make it to 15 years or more. We can say that 90% of startups fail. This clearly means there is a lot of risk in entrepreneurship than a job. Because we get at least job security and we get a paycheck every month in the job. But have you seen any millionaire or anyone who is fulfilling his dreams and is successful because of his job? People who are billionaires today were always entrepreneurs, never at jobs. But no one in our society generally talks about entrepreneurs, they just talk about jobs or self-employed. So what to choose? We will look into it. This was just what have we been taught. Pros And Cons Of Being An Employee V/s Entrepreneur Pros Of Being An Employee It is not a secret that many people hate their jobs. For some people, it’s because of their boss or colleagues. For others, it’s because of the perceived lack of work-life balance. Regardless of the reasons, there are also many benefits of working a 9-to-5 job that could lead you to think otherwise. Let’s have a look at some of them: #1 Regular Paycheck Whether the business is in loss or profit, it is the best thing about the job is a regular paycheck. Like if you have done any EMI, then you don’t have to worry about that. In fact, a paycheck is the most exciting thing for many peoples. If you are in a job, then just imagine the time when the paycheck comes. You have your widest smile while seeing the text of salary, haven’t you? Why? Because money cannot buy you happiness but can give you stability and security. It gives you a kind of feeling of security and independence. As long as you will give value to the company, you will receive a paycheck. #2 A Sense Of Identity Have you visited your relative party, or any kind of party, meetups, meetings? What is the question someone asks you there if he doesn’t know you? First, he asks your name, and then in most cases after that What do you do? At this time job gives you an identity. Though many people hate their job in this situation they proudly say their position. For Example, Your Name, FBI. This is the benefit of having a job as it will give you a perfect definition of who you are. #3 Experience You may have listened to people saying before starting your own business, you should once be in the job. Even I believe that before starting your own business, you must gain experience of business by doing a job, not for the paycheck but the experience. As a job gives you a lot of experience. In fact, if you get a job in the business which you are going to start, then the job will teach you a lot about management, sales, some strategies, and many people. #4 Meet new people  The job allows you to meet many new peoples who can be your friends, mentors, colleagues, or competitors. This helps you to improve your social skills. This helps you to improve your confidence, communication skills, and also meetups. It is fun working with new people which you get here. Maybe one of them is your best friend forever. #5 Work-Life Balance In your 9-7 job, though you don’t get time between 9-7 you get time after that. You don’t have to bother with stress after that. In our life, there’s not only work but our lives also matter which includes our family. The best thing about it is after 7, we are free of stress, work, and the burden of work. And we can easily give time to our family. This is the work-life balance. #6 Work with a community  On the job, we mostly work with a community. The community doesn’t here mean your home community but office community. We as an employee work with other employees as well. We can tell it as our work family. Sometimes all the people enjoy and do the work which is like working fun. Cons Of Being An Employee Till now you may think that job is the best, as we get many works as well as social advantages. But we can decide by seeing one side of any coin. If we see only the pros of anything, then we would definitely say “YES”.  #1 Less Job Security  The thing which you have to keep in mind and which people ignore is businesses are not emotional. They don’t want people who don’t have the proper skills to work. Today robots are taking place of humans. It is not popular till now, but it will be common soon. It is said that in businesses you have to fire 10% of your employees every year of bad performance. Businesses don’t want quantity, they want quality. In fact in today’s world people with high skills also don’t get a job. Job security is in very few jobs today. Remember this point always “If you don’t come to work on time, you’ll be fired.” #2 You can’t decide Your Job Earnings And Reward [ Income is not equal to action ] Know more: click
9 Interview Questions EVERY Recruiter Should Ask Their Candidates
Interview Questions Recruiters face enough challenges as it is without worrying if they asked the right questions in an interview. It is essential when determining who the best fit for a job is. Of course, ensuring that a candidate has the required skill set is of primary concern, but it is also important to dig a little deeper and find out what kind of person they are. The goal is to snag a complete candidate, one with both the right personality and expertise. So here are the best nine interview questions for you to ask your next star candidate. 1. “What hobbies do you have?” Starting with an easy one here, and this question should be obvious for recruiters. Primarily it gives your candidate a chance to relax, but it can also offer you a key insight. For example, if they enjoy playing a lot of sport, it shows they are energetic individuals who are health conscious. If they like writing or drawing, ask them how they can transfer that creativity into their new role. Always have a follow-up question and try to revert it back to the role at hand. 2. “Tell me about your greatest professional achievement?” You want a candidate that has their sights set high, right? This question allows your potential employee to share some of their proudest professional moments. You can assess each achievement and see how ambitious they are. There is a big difference between a candidate who tells you their greatest exploit was always being on-time for work and one who boosted website traffic by 65% over a six month period. 3. “What was the biggest obstacle you have overcome?” Everyone faces certain challenges in both their personal and professional lives. What’s most important in this case is how your candidate overcame each hurdle. What did they learn from this experience? How would they deal with this obstacle if it were to happen again? It gives you an opportunity to see their problem-solving skills and how they can deal with pressures of the role. 4. “Are you interested in continuing to develop your professional skills and knowledge?” Continuous learning has seen rapid changes and growth, with companies looking to upskill and nurture their workers. Learning has become a key goal for companies, with many encouraging their employees to partake in various courses in order to improve their base level. You want your candidate to believe in continuous learning and know that the business values their personal and professional progression. 5. “Can you tell me what the key trends are in this industry?” Every industry has its own niche trends that are constantly changing. See if your candidate is up-to-date and informed about the latest insights. It’s important to understand the industry you work in, and if your candidate is ill-informed from the get-go, then that alone should be a telling sign. 6. “What is your biggest strength?” A much more comprehensive question compared to the now mundane “what are your weaknesses?” archetype. Candidates predict the latter and generally have a bland, pre-prepared answer. When asking about strengths, it allows the interviewee to paint their skills and traits in a positive light and generate a greater variety of answers. 7. “Tell me about a time when you got it all wrong?” This question allows you to see how honest your candidate is. No one is perfect, and a dishonest answer should be a major red flag for any recruiter. When the interviewee extrapolates, ask them what they’ve learned from the tough experience. Admitting to errors or blunders also shows that they can take ownership of situations and look for solutions rather than transfer blame. 8. “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” You want your star candidate to think ahead. Only ambitious employees will truly push the boundaries, and that’s the kind of person you want working in your company. It also gives insight into how long the candidate might plan on staying at your business. The right candidate will list their career goals and be a motivated individual who is looking for career progression. 9. “Do you have any questions for me?” A candidate that doesn’t take the opportunity to ask questions is missing out or is struggling to think of a question off the top of their head. Even simple queries like: “how long will the probation period be?” or “what learning opportunities will be available to me?” are most definitely a positive look. It shows that the candidate is fully invested in the position and sees it as a long-term investment. This Post origioally featured at Khawaja Manpoer's Blog
The Vacuum That Needs To Be Filled By The HRs
The ongoing pandemic has taken a toll on economies across the globe and the standstill seems to be rather longer than what we were expecting with no end at sight and the WHO confirming we might have to live with the virus for some time now. While all are confident things will return to normalcy but some organizations in the E-Commerce, Logistics, E-Services have taken upon themselves to do something about it with their demands ever-increasing with each passing day they seem to have transformed further digitally to ensure there are no brakes in their operations during this gloom. This looks to be the New World Order Digital Transformation along with upskilling your workforce working remotely enabling many possibilities. While millions are working from home, technology has in fact taken over our lives in a way very few predicted and even fewer for the year 2020. During these times of survival and staying along the growth curve human resources would play a pivotal role in ensuring they attract the right talent to organizations. Today our heroes are the front-line health workers, law enforcement agencies and sanitation workers but when this ensuing battle against the unknown ends the world would need a hero to bring back pace to its economies to bring back certainty among the working class to bring back trust in the Investors to bring back hope in humankind and that space is going to be filled by human resources since they are the people who make the company and the work culture in it. While experts predicted AI taking over human resources this ongoing lock-down has proved that recruitment does need a human touch it. Human resources as we know aren’t just people who work in corporates doing white-collar job hiring or people organizing birthday parties and decorating their desks they are also the people who bring the labor force into action in various industries ranging from Manufacturing to Infrastructure developments etc. who we call as Field Officers or Contractors on Field. With the guest workers across the country facing the wrath of Covid-19 and returning to the hinterland it will be the Human Resources department which would bring people back to the Industries companies and Assembling Plants. It could be safely assumed that the HR department would eventually bring the ailing world back to its feet once this pandemic comes to an end with finding the right resources for every job available and whenever the need arises. A company’s success is completely credited to the people working behind it and it is every CEO’s priority concern that Talent Acquisition development and Retention is taken care of and they have lost a lot in this ensuing battle and they would be very determined to draw first blood and attract the best talent to their organizations even if working remotely.

Hyaluronic Acid - The Natural Skin Plumping Sugar
Despite its tough pronunciation and even more complicated spelling; hyaluronic acid is an important part of your daily skin care routine. It's widely used in serums, sheet masks, and moisturisers. This is because HA, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, binds to water and plumps the face, giving it a dewy, glowing appearance. It's clear that word of its benefits has spread, as it's one of the most sought-after ingredients in skin-care products. Aside from increasing skin moisture levels, hyaluronic acid serves other functions. What is hyaluronic acid, exactly? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the skin that helps water bind to collagen, keeping it in place and giving the skin a plumper, dewier, and more hydrated appearance. Essentially, hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, which helps to maintain the skin's youthful, full, and bouncy appearance. Collagen in our dermis determines the structure of our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is covalently linked to water molecules on one side and collagen on the other, providing plumpness to the skin. What is hyaluronic acid's function? As we age, our collagen and hyaluronic acid levels gradually decline, causing our skin to become increasingly dry. Furthermore, winter heaters, specific skin care products, and underlying skin disorders can cause microscopic tears in the protective skin barrier, allowing water to escape. As a result, implementing a customised skin care regimen that includes moisturising products could be extremely beneficial. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, colloidal oatmeal, urea, propylene glycol, and sorbitol are humectants, which draw water to the skin to hydrate it. These chemicals can be found in a variety of products, such as moisturisers, eye creams, and serums. The use of HA-containing products tightens the skin around the eyes, increases moisture to reduce puffiness, and softens fine wrinkles throughout the face. Hyaluronic acid is effective when applied topically due to its ease of penetration. Our skin is the largest organ in the body, soaking up up to 60% of the nutrients applied to it. Furthermore, the lightweight, fluid nature of hyaluronic acid, as well as its ability to retain moisture from the environment and deeper dermis to completely hydrate the skin, are benefits. Who should benefit from hyaluronic acid? All skin types benefit from hyaluronic acid. It is non-irritating in general and does not aggravate acne, rosacea, or allergic skin conditions. However, there is a very small chance of experiencing any negative consequences. Individuals with dry and/or older skin will benefit the most from the application of hyaluronic acid. Because our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid as we age, people in their forties and fifties will benefit the most from applying it topically. Despite the fact that the term "acid" appears in the term of hyaluronic acid, those with sensitive skin should not be worried; it is completely safe for everyone. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in our bodies, there are no known side effects from using it. If you have an allergic reaction to it or a product that contains it, contact your dermatologist immediately; the reaction could be caused by another active or inactive ingredient. Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Injections of hyaluronic acid are also available. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance found in dermal fillers that attracts water after injection to replenish volume and restore lost structure. This helps to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also reducing the overall sunken or drooping appearance of the face. These dermal fillers can be used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, undereyes, lips, and back of the hands, among other things. Because the quality of fillers varies, it's critical to consult with your dermatologist about your options to ensure you get the best one for you. A cosmetic surgeon compares different types of hyaluronic acid fillers to different types of paintbrushes. They all contain the same component, but the density, lift-ability, and durability of the molecules vary depending on their size and arrangement. Additionally, it is reversible. Because it is injected into your face, it is not permanent. Because hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are reversible, your dermatologist can dissolve the filler quickly using the enzyme hyaluronidase if you are dissatisfied with the results or if a blood artery is blocked during the injection process. The enzyme works quickly; the substance dissolves quickly and is completely destroyed within 24 to 48 hours. Individuals who are allergic to bees, on the other hand, should proceed with caution — and consult a dermatologist — before attempting hyaluronidase-based therapy because the enzyme is found in bee venom. Hyaluronic acid fillers, on the other hand, are not for everyone. Except for pregnant women, the vast majority of people can benefit from hyaluronic acid fillers. Pregnancy and fillers have not been thoroughly studied, but dermatologists generally avoid injecting pregnant women due to uncertainty. Furthermore, if you have a current skin infection, you should avoid these fillers. First, treat the infection, and then return to your appointment once your dermatologist has given you the all-clear. If you're thinking about using hyaluronic fillers, there are a few minor risks to be aware of. Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects of any injectable treatment. The good news is that these shortfalls will only last a short time. Tenderness should subside within a few days. To reduce the risk of bruising, blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and red wine should be avoided for about a week before treatment. Furthermore, arnica and bromelain may aid in the reduction of swelling and bruising.
12 Questions About Breast Lift Surgery Answered By A Plastic Surgeon
Are you experiencing sagging or loose skin in your breasts as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss? Are you prone to irritation of the skin as a result of sagging breasts? Are you concerned about the appearance of your breasts (as a result of volume loss associated with ageing)? If this is the case, a breast lift procedure may be beneficial. This procedure repositions your skin, nipple, and areola to restore your youthful breasts. Apart from cosmetic concerns, a substantial body of clinical evidence suggests that a breast lift may benefit a variety of health problems. What Exactly Is a Breast Lift? A breast lift, alternatively referred to as a "mastopexy," is a surgical procedure that raises the nipple and areola. Additionally, it corrects breast sagging and drooping by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining breast tissues. If your areola is not proportionate to the size of your breasts, the procedure may reduce its size. How long do the effects of a Breast Lift last? The outcome of the procedure may vary from patient to patient. This will depend on a variety of variables, including the following: How you care for your newly formed breasts The surgical procedure that was performed Your age The anticipated outcome Your eating habits Elasticity of your skin In most cases, the effects of a breast lift last up to two years. However, because the procedure cannot reverse the effects of ageing on the breasts, you may require additional surgery to maintain the results. Prior to the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will conduct an examination of your overall health to ensure long-term results. Does a breast lift result in an increase in cup size? The procedure does not alter the shape of the breasts; rather, it realigns the skin, nipple, and areola. As a result, the breast contour appears younger and more defined. If you want to increase the size of your breasts, you may benefit from a surgical procedure called breast augmentation or breast lift with implants. This procedure enhances the appearance and size of your breasts by using implants or your own body fat. Can I discontinue wearing a bra following a breast lift? No, your surgeon will instruct you to wear a special bra or compression garments following surgery to help reduce swelling and support your breasts as they heal. Indeed, your surgeon will likely advise you to wear a support bra following surgery. This also allows time for your breasts to adjust to their new shape. How is a lollipop breast lift performed? The lollipop lift is a surgical procedure reserved for patients with breasts of average size. This is accomplished by cutting around the areola, which runs down the centre of the lower breast and resembles a lollipop on a stick. These incisions will be used by your plastic surgeon to elevate the breast and reposition the nipple and areola into the desired position. After repositioning the skin, your surgeon will tighten and secure it with sutures. With this surgical technique, scarring is minimal. However, because your surgeon will be working with a small incision, it will be challenging to perform. What is ananchor breast lift? An anchor lift, also known as a standard breast lift, entails creating an inverted anchor-shaped cut around the perimeter of your areola that runs down to the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease. This procedure is recommended for patients who require extensive skin and breast tissue removal. However, this surgical technique is quite invasive and carries a higher risk of undesirable scarring. Is it possible to lose weight following a breast lift? Excess skin is removed during the procedure to firm and define your breasts. However, it does not remove a large amount of skin or tissue, resulting in noticeable weight loss. Are Breast Implants needed in a breast lift? Breast lifts are performed without the use of implants to enhance the appearance of your breasts. Rather than that, your surgeon will reposition the existing breast tissue, nipple, and areola to create the appearance of younger, more defined breasts. Breast augmentation is a procedure that involves the placement of implants in the breasts. In some instances, breast augmentation can be combined with a mastopexy in Mumbai to achieve the most optimal and long-lasting results. Does breast lift surgery reduce the size of the areola? Yes, surgery can help reduce the size of enlarged areolas caused by sagging breasts. To achieve optimal cosmetic results, the majority of patients who undergo a breast lift require areola reduction. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will determine whether areola reduction is necessary for your breast condition. How is a breast lift different from breast implant surgery? A breast lift aims to enhance the shape and symmetry of your existing breasts by reshaping and lifting them for a more youthful appearance and contour. Breast implants, on the other hand, increase the volume of your breasts to increase their size, but they do not alter the placement of your breasts. Breast lifts and breast implants are frequently used in conjunction to achieve the best and most durable results. How much does a breast lift cost? Naturally, the cost of a breast lift surgery in Mumbai is dependent on a variety of factors, including the following: Your surgery's supplies and equipment The medical facility's or clinic's cost Anesthetist's fee Assistant surgeon's fee Your breasts' condition Your desired results Additionally, the surgeon's fee. It is critical to keep in mind that each treatment plan is customised to your unique health and cosmetic needs, as well as desired outcomes. As a result, total fees may vary between patients. Additionally, you should understand that a breast lift is a cosmetic procedure. In other words, the procedure is performed to enhance the appearance of the breasts. Your health insurance will not cover this procedure. Is it possible to avoid scarring following a breast lift? The majority of patients are so pleased with the results of their breast lift that they are unconcerned about the appearance of their surgical scars. Many patients discover that the benefits of breast lift surgery in Mumbai outweigh the potential for scarring. However, it is natural for patients to be concerned about the appearance of scars following complete healing of surgical incisions. The truth is that visible signs of breast lift surgery are possible. Your scars, on the other hand, should fade and lighten in appearance over time. To achieve minimal scarring, most surgeons make small, inconspicuous breast incisions during the procedure. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the surgical technique and incision placement in detail.
