Characteristics in terms of the regularity or irregularity are helpful. The duration of individual episodes may help in terms of differentiation. Re-entrant tachycardias tend to last longer than AT episodes, which may occur in a series of repetitive runs. Clear descriptions of pounding in the neck (the so-called ‘frog sign’) or ‘shirt flapping ’ would point to the possible competing influences of atrial and ventricular contraction on the tricuspid

167. Learning from the Experience of Accountable Care Organizations in the U.S.

public ACOs have been largely stewarded by the Centre for Medicare and Medicaid. Beneficiaries are attributed to public ACOs based on being a Medicare beneficiary that also meets an agreed-upon definition, typically reliant on seeking a certain amount of care from providers included in the ACO.(3) However, providers attached to the ACO may also be delivering care to non-ACO beneficiaries. ACOs are reimbursed using shared-savings arrangements which are outlined in a shared-savings contract between (...) the payer (in the public system this is Medicare or Medicaid, and in the commercial, a private insurer) and the ACO. The shared savings contract defines the terms of the arrangement including a common understanding of the baseline cost of care from which improvements are benchmarked, as well as the extent of risk taken on by the ACO.(3) Providers attached to the ACO have been traditionally reimbursed for their services using traditional fee-for-service payments, although this is increasingly shifting

outcome was the percentage of patients who achieved a response (defined as a 20% to 100% reduction from baseline in the weekly parenteral support volume) at week 20 which was maintained at week 24 and was analysed in the intention to treat population which included all randomised patients. Response was achieved by 63% (27/43) of patients in the teduglutide group and 30% (13/43) of patients in the placebo group (p=0.002). The study used a step-down testing procedure for six secondary outcomes (...) with no formal statistical testing after the first non- significant difference. Secondary outcomes included the percentage change from baseline to week 24 in parenteral support (32% versus 21% of patients in the teduglutide and placebo groups respectively, p=0.030) and the mean absolute change from baseline to week 24 in parenteral support (-4.4 litres/week [from a baseline of 12.9 litres/week] in the teduglutide group compared with -2.3 litres/week [from a baseline of 13.2 litres/week] in the placebo group

Work group con- sensus statements (...) clearly state that “in the absence of reliable evidence, it is the work group’s opinion that” a test or intervention may be appropriate. Recommendations were developed based on a specific definition, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and the resulting literature which excluded conditions such as presence of a neurological deficit or leg pain experienced below the knee, among others.
