A new study has found a correlation between exercise and the brain. According to this research, exercise is not only good for the heart but also good for the mind. This study reveals that those who run, swim, or participate in other moderately active exercises have brains that look, on average, 10 years younger.

After investigation, Medicare has been found to be paying hospices nearly four times more than it should be for certain patients. Sometimes, hospices were found to be billing Medicare for a more expensive level of care than some patients needed.

As of lately, patients are becoming more responsible for the cost of their own health care. However, recent research shows that the conversation doctors have with their patients highly impacts their cost of care, out-of-pocket expenses and also preventive care and testing. This research suggests that doctors should begin to have more conversations with their patients about health costs.

Vision-related issues during pregnancy are not often talked about, however, these changes and eye issues can occur during pregnancy. There are a few indicators of these vision-related issues that can detect for you and your doctor potential complications for child birth.

3 Healthcare Predictions for 2016

Empty Road To Upcoming 2016 At Sunset2016 will continue to see healthcare grow and change. As it does, MyHealthSpin will help you find easy, simple answers to your healthcare questions.  

Here are our healthcare predictions for 2016:

  1. More Wearables: More medical “wearables” will be developed with increasingly sophisticated technology to offer less invasive, but effective, monitoring and treatment for health conditions. Many healthcare and technology companies will create mobile apps, wearable sensors, and ways for consumers to access their personal health records. Expect to continue seeing devices and apps that allow you to have a more active role in your healthcare. The market for next generation wearables is expected to increase exponentially.
  1. End-of-Life Care: We predict that end-of-life care will gain more public attention as the issue will continue to occupy headlines. Hospice will increase. Physicians will have more end-of-life care discussions with patients due to increasing drug prices, high deductible plans, and new payment models.
  1. Employers: Employers will start to treat healthcare costs much more seriously. They will have an active role in employee healthcare to manage their healthcare costs. Employers may require monitoring health using online tools, they may choose which doctors and hospitals employees go to, and they may require second opinions before high cost procedures or treatments.

Those are just a few of our predictions for 2016. All of these advances and trends will continue to grow in 2016 and beyond.
