Today's Globe: circumcision, mental health settlement, digital doctoring
The World Health Organization and UNAIDS yesterday recommended that African males living in the heart of the AIDS pandemic protect themselves against HIV by undergoing circumcision -- medical advice that could lead to surgical procedures on tens of millions, from infants to elders.
Tri-City Mental Health Center, a non profit organization with facilities in suburbs north of Boston, has agreed to pay the state more than half a million dollars to settle allegations it billed the state Medicaid program and the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health for services it never rendered, officials said yesterday.
With the overwhelming advancement of innovative drugs and procedures, doctoring has moved from an individual endeavor to a team effort, and it is technology that binds the team together, Dr. Joseph B. Martin, dean of the Harvard School of Medicine and chairman of the New England Healthcare Institute, writes in an op-ed piece.
