    Health Care Facility Certificate of Need Regulations—Laws That Have Outlived Their Usefulness

    Health Care Facility Certificate of Need Regulations—Laws That Have Outlived Their Usefulness

    Certificates of Need are regulations required by some states before any construction or expansion of services at medical facilities are undertaken. Originally developed to prevent excessive construction of expensive health care facilities, these rules have distorted health care markets and probably should be repealed. Karl Bilimoria, MD, from Northwestern University, Tarik K Yuce, MD, and JAMA Associate Editor Karen Joynt Maddox, MD, from Washington University, discuss the current status of these regulations and their effect on health care markets.

    Elevated Liver Function Tests Following Liver Transplant

    Elevated Liver Function Tests Following Liver Transplant

    There are hundreds of thousands of liver transplant patients, all of whom will be seen in general clinical practices. It is common for them to develop elevated liver enzymes--a potentially serious problem that may be a sign that the transplanted liver is failing. Traditionally, patients with these findings are sent to a liver transplant center for an inpatient workup. A new protocol facilitating management of most of these patients in routine outpatient clinics has been developed, greatly improving the efficiency of managing patients with this clinical problem. Fady Kaldas, MD, director of the Dumont-UCLA transplant center, discusses how to manage elevated liver function results in liver transplant patients on an outpatient basis.

Very Good

Very fun and interesting content. I am a 3rd year medical student, and I really enjoy the historical perspectives and the broad overviews of the the topics coupled with detailed information. The production quality and scripts are also very well done. I think JAMA Clinical Reviews has mastered the Conversational style of instruction. Keep up the good work.
