Home Capital Reports Strong Earnings and Dividend Increase: – Yahoo Finance

These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements, whether written or verbal, that may be made from time to time by it or on its behalf, except as required by securities laws. Assumptions about the performance of the Canadian economy and its effect on Home Capital’s business are material factors the Company considers when setting its objectives, targets and outlook. In determining expectations for economic growth, both broadly and in the financial services sector, the Company primarily considers historical and forecasted economic data provided by the Canadian government and its agencies. In setting and reviewing its targets, objectives and outlook for the remainder of 2014, management’s expectations continue to assume: The Canadian economy will continue to produce modest growth in 2014 with stable to modestly improving employment conditions in most regions, and inflation will generally be within the Bank of Canada’s target of 1% to 3% leading to stable credit losses and strong demand for the Company’s lending products. The Canadian economy will continue to be influenced by the economic conditions in the United States and global markets; as such, the Company is prepared for the variability to plan that may result. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/home-capital-reports-strong-earnings-210000054.html

Patient-Centered Medical Homes Reduce Costs for Medicare Patients

As the number of PCMHs has increased, a new report in the journal Health Services Research finds the model offers a promising option to reduce health care costs and utilization of some health care services. When we looked at the literature, we found that the overall evidence is still fairly limited in terms of how well the model actually works, said corresponding study author, Martijn van Hasselt, Ph.D., of the nonprofit RTI International in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Among the more consistent findings is that PCMHs tend to be associated with improved quality of care and better patient experience with care. Evidence remains fairly mixed, however, with respect to the cost of care, hospital admissions or emergency room visits. The study examined patterns of health care use and expenditures for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries from a sample of PCMHs recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and a set of practices without that designation. The use of a standard definition of a PCMH, with auditing by NCQA, has been lacking in many of the published studies on PCMHs to date. http://www.seniorjournal.com/NEWS/Medicare/2014/20140801_Patient_Centered_Medical_Homes_Reduce_Costs_for_Medicare_Patients.htm
