In my clinical nutrition practice, when a client needs a protein-powder supplement, I generally recommend whey protein isolate powder, even though it’s made from an animal source. I like the fact that whey protein contains all nine amino acids that our bodies must have to produce all the different proteins we need to function. Whey protein is also easily absorbed and used by the body, even after surgery or other stressful events.
In the past, nutritionists referred to the nine amino acids as the “building blocks of protein.” Then they started calling them “the essential amino acids” because the body can’t make these building blocks on its own, but has to get them entirely from the foods we eat. Lately, the experts have further upgraded their admiration for the nine amino acids, referring to them as “the indispensable amino acids” (IAAs). Three of the most important IAAs–leucine, isoleucine, and valine–are the so-called “branched-chain amino acids,” which are believed to help with muscle repair and formation, and even perhaps with blood-glucose regulation.
Another plus for whey protein isolate is the fact that, although it’s made from milk, it doesn’t contain lactose, the enzyme in milk that
Health care organizations have received appreciable support from the digital disruptive environment in their quest to deliver value based care as opposed to volume based care.
Digital health care has transformed the way organizations store their patient data, exchange data on-the-go and secure sensitive data. Health care organizations differ in terms of their information storage needs, and the amount and type of data which needs to be stored. Data storage is also dependent on regulatory requirements which an organization must follow.
In this context, more and more care delivery settings realize that in order to succeed, they must view patients as central to their focus rather than as mere stakeholders.
A transition from an organization-centric to a patient-centric approach for storing and handling health data involves efforts at multiple stages, from defragmenting broken silos pf patient data to exchanging meaningful health data through Health Information Exchanges (HIE).
Accessible Health Care with Digital Technologies will Improve Care Delivery
The use of digital technologies and mobile to enable patients in helping find their practitioner and care setting has made care more accessible.
Delivering accessible care in this way can have a number of implications
