Compiled each business day in 2005 from the most current research available, each of the more than 250 Data Bytes on the CD-ROM contains an abstract of a newly announced healthcare research study, a link to the original study source and a related resource. Users can conduct instant keyword searches on the latest findings in consumer-driven healthcare, disease management, e-health, wellness, Medicare, Medicaid, pay-for-performance, and many other areas. Search results are returned by relevancy and can be printed for easy reference.

According to Melanie Matthews, HIN executive vice president and chief operating officer, the Healthcare Daily Data Bytes 2006, Keyword Searchable CD-ROM is drawn from the Data Bytes that HIN publishes each business day for its clients in the healthcare industry. “So often industry professionals are seeking that one statistic to back up a proposal or budget request or complete a research effort,” Matthews states. The Healthcare Daily Data Bytes 2006 facilitates these tasks by putting a year’s worth of current studies in one electronic tool. “In the time that it takes to hit the “Enter" key, the information appears on the user’s computer screen. With one more keystroke, it can be saved to a file or sent to a computer printer.”

  • Cost of Chronic Health Conditions;
  • Employers Adopting Health Management, Consumer-Directed Programs to Control Costs;
