Fluconazole 150mg – Your Best Way in Treating Fungal Infections

Fluconazole 150mg is a medication that is used in treating fungal infections of certain types.  Fluconazole 150mg treats fungal infection by killing the fungi itself.  This medication is used for a multitude of infections.  Additionally, fluconazole 150mg can be used in preventing fungal infection on people whose immune system is compromised.

Fungal infections are not always limited to the skin wherein you can treat them using antifungal creams.  Also, there are times that some skin infections cannot be treated using creams alone as some of the components of the fungus may have buried themselves already deep in your skin which is why the use of medications like fluconazole 150mg is necessary in order to fully purge them.

If you are using fluconazole 150mg, it is important that you keep this medicine for yourself and never share it with others.  Fluconazole 150mg is a prescription medication which means this has likely been prescribed to you.  Sharing the medication with others whose condition or allergic reaction has not been established can be particularly risky which is why it is highly suggested to keep your dosing of fluconazole 150mg to yourself.  Read more…

Going digital? Let the government pay

Don’t miss out on valuable subsidies

As electronic medical records become increasingly commonplace in Canadian doctors’ offices, the old excuses about difficult, unreliable software have largely been proven spurious. But still most physicians have resisted switching entirely to digital. Why? The reasons are no longer functional — modern EMR systems are excellent, safe and easy for even basic computer users — but rather financial: the costs of EMR implementation and maintenance, and the requisite hardware, can easily run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Changing your whole charting process is hard enough. Changing your whole charting process and paying through the nose for the privilege? For a lot of physicians in private practice, that’s asking too much.

A consensus has emerged in the nascent EMR-adoption literature that the cost of setting up an EMR system may be the greatest barrier for many interested doctors. Mercifully, provincial governments have taken note and, over the last three years, many have created substantial subsidy programs to lighten the financial burden.

    Good old "mother" government, eh ! :)

    Apart from the stress that comes with constant , rapid changes that occur in the software/hardware world of technology...... there are the "real life ,in the moment " necessities of information in hand that is fully under your control.

    Apart from what your "directional' plans are for joining the system and the "realtime" EDI ( electronic data interchange ) I would be thinking about the following to keep my " operational" plan running smoothly.

    1. the history and reputation of DR. Lawrence Weed

    He revolutionised the record-keeping, data use/storage , "problem-based" linked to "evidence-based" record keeping since the 1960's.

    He founded this company which brings his intellectual properties into the "tech" age:

    If you want to consider a simple " in-house/personal files complement why not use the " physician one-write " ?

    For years "corrections services" used this for the simplicity of collecting all data related to a problem -based charting perspective (SOAPIER )..... on one page ......and relevant copies automatically taken from their "section" at point of charting for other professionals serving the client
    ( great for neww collaborative patient-centred teams )

    For years these "physician one-write" paper forms were supplied free by the drug companies

    [ they could do that again :)]

    Inter-office treatment plans could easily turn this into your "problem-oriented" record of disease specific /per visit episodes/ per client.

    P.S. I do not know any professional who does/did not have some recording process that backs up dependence upon technology
