Propecia Generic For Male Pattern Baldness

The drug propecia generic was originally intended for treating prostate enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia. When its branded name Proscar was released in the market, it was noticed that men who were suffering from androgenic alopecia were also being treated by the drug.  It was then that the manufacturer took notice and created some clinical studies and found out that Proscar, which came at 5mg, which at lowered dosage, particularly 1mg, could help fight androgenic alopecia.  Several years later, the brand Propecia, an offshoot of the drug Proscar was approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for androgenic alopecia.

Who is propecia generic intended for?

Propecia generic is meant for men suffering from male pattern baldness and want to stop the progression of their hair loss.  Signs of male pattern baldness would be the thinning of hair on the front, the receding of hairline on the temples, and the formation of a bald spot on the crown.  In due time, this type of baldness will let you end up bald from top to front with a rim of hair at the sides and back.  propecia generic is effective against this type of hair loss because it is able to treat it at the root of the cause – the formation of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).  Basically, this hair loss treatment prevents your hair loss from getting any worse.  If your hair loss is due to androgenic alopecia, then this is the medication for you.  Consult your doctor to know what type of hair loss you are having.

IN THE NEWS: Is fee-for-service billing outdated?

Is fee-for-service billing outdated?
In a new "Mythbusters" entry, the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation dismisses the notion that most Canadian doctors prefer to be paid fee-for-service. The foundation's analysis points to blended models of remuneration -- incorporating salaried work, capitation and some fee-for-service payments -- as the future of physicians' income. [CHSRF]

Patients get email advice
The Canadian Medical Association typically gives advice to its members: doctors. But it's branched out a bit with a new project to give guidance to patients on how best to communicate with their doctors via email. Among the pieces of advice are: keep it short, be clear, don't send attachments without permission, and "do not discuss more than one subject per email."

RE: How physicians move into the future

The GP is a " knowledge worker". He/she must learn what that is, how the role is redefined and how the " work" is redefined and paid for.

The future compensation package will include the patient and evidence of compliance.

The patient will be part of the team with responsibilities to the payor.

RE: How patients move into the future

It is patronizing to simply " instruct".
Now is the tme to "construct" a SAAT ( self assessment audit tool ) that performs across the care continuum as a progress note ( think of it as electronic WEED charting).
This makes your patient your partner in the appropriate utilization of funds supplied.

Therefore, do not simply control the patient...make him/her your partner in the management of his/her own case.

RE: new physician work structures:

Remember the "Z"....

.... the physician's work is the connector between the parallel lines and there is an algorithm for how that performs, is costed and measured in terms of "preferred" , " expected"and "actual" outcomes.

And I predict/forecast that in a " social determinants of heath" perspective there will be " service offsets" to be traded in the future ;)

While it may be advantageous for managing utility billing in the company, billing company has invested heavily in software tools and technologies to streamline the billing process to be effective, well supported. Invoicing utility is without certainly a task that can be easily outsourced, saving owners and managers of time and effort.
