SHIN-NY MILESTONE — New York's massive, state-funded electronic health records experiment has reached an important milestone. The program, called the State Health Information Network for New York, or SHIN-NY, has now connected all eight Regional Health Information Organizations, or RHIOs, across the state, linking the disparate networks to one central hub and allowing an internist in Buffalo, for example, to communicate and share information with a cardiologist in Manhattan. http://politi.co/1Mg9oIV [PRO]

INVESTIGATE HEALTH REPUBLIC — Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is urging the state to investigate Health Republic Insurance of New York and to create a special enrollment period for the nearly 200,000 customers who will lose their coverage as a result of the co-op shutting down by the end of the month. "There needs to be accountability and heads need to roll when it comes to leaving 200,000 New Yorkers in the lurch,” he said.

NOW WE KNOW — The New York Times explains that eating a little bit of dirt is usually fine. “The key to staying safe is ‘a little bit,’ and preferably dirt that is not contaminated by things like insecticide, fertilizer, flakes of lead paint and especially parasites, according to Medline Plus, a service of the National Library of Medicine.” http://nyti.ms/1HoRUod

HAPPENING TODAY — The 45-day public comment period for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan to extend the state's Human Rights Law to transgender New Yorkers begins today, according to the State Register. Cuomo announced in October he would include gender expression, along with a list of characteristics that are not explicitly stated, in the state law that bans discrimination. According to the text of the proposed rule, a new section would be added to the state’s Human Rights Law defining gender identity, a transgender person and gender dysphoria. The section of law would also consider discrimination on the basis of gender identity to be sex discrimination and would require the term “sex” to include gender identity and the status of being transgender. Discrimination based on gender dysphoria would also be considered a disability discrimination. Read the full text of the proposed rule here: http://on.ny.gov/1Q9CZoZ

HAPPENING THURSDAY — The Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society is hosting a seminar that will discuss how to improve communications with patient populations. “As the health care market moves to a more consumer-driven environment, it has never been more important to understand data, manage brands and meet each patient with the right message.” Kelly Stepno and Mark Gerner from Booz Allen are presenting.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA REFERENDUM — WGRZ reports the Seneca Nation of Indians approved a medical marijuana measure in a referendum vote Tuesday. The final vote was 448-364 opposed. This vote allows the nation’s leaders to explore setting up a medical marijuana program. It does not create one. http://on.wgrz.com/1iBYhho

PHARMA REPORT — The Wall Street Journal reports Mylan NV has agreed to sell the rights and assets related to seven generic drugs in exchange for regulatory approval of its hostile takeover of Perrigo Co. “Under the settlement agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, subject to final approval, Mylan is set to sell the seven generics to New Jersey-based Alvogen Group Inc. Mylan, best known for its branded EpiPen injection kit for allergy emergencies, is offering $75 in cash and 2.3 shares of Mylan for each Perrigo share.” http://on.wsj.com/1Mg8Qme

WHAT WE’RE READING:

-A GOOD LESSON IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN REJECTED — In Tuesday’s newsletter, I wrote about new research that found white, middle-aged people are dying in unprecedented numbers. The study was huge news, played everywhere and its authors were quoted widely. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That’s because it was rejected by both The New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association, according to The Washington Post. http://wapo.st/1Mg8v2V

-KENTUCKY ELECTION — Republican Matt Bevin was declared the winner of Kentucky’s gubernatorial election, a race that focused on health care and support for the Affordable Care Act. Kentucky’s Democratic governor, who was term limited, had built a state-based exchange and expanded Medicaid to more than 400,000 state residents. “Bevin, a fierce opponent of the health care law, at first said he would reverse it, but has since softened his position and said he would stop enrolling new people but would not take coverage from people who had it,” The New York Times reported. http://nyti.ms/1MgaaWq

-HOW’S IT GOING — Roughly 250,000 applications were submitted to HealthCare.gov in the first two days of 2016 open enrollment, HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell tweeted. The federal exchange website - the enrollment platform for 38 states - has been operating smoothly since re-opening on Sunday morning.

-FOLLOW THE MONEY — The Congressional Budget Office reported that the Medicare and Medicaid provision in the bill overhauling the mental health system would increase direct spending by about $3 billion over the next decade. The bill expands Medicaid to cover more mental health services and expands access to mental health prescription drugs. It also eliminates Medicare's 190-day lifetime limit on coverage of inpatient psychiatric hospital services. http://1.usa.gov/1iBYYqT

-UNITED STATES OF PRESCRIPTIONS — Eight percent of Americans take five or more prescriptions drugs. http://lat.ms/1H585vV

TODAY'S TIP — Comes from Mount Sinai’s Dr. Shari Brasner: "If you have a family history of bleeding disorders, don’t sign your baby up for elective surgery."

STUDY THIS:

-DOWNLOAD, YES. USE, NO — Researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center, using an online survey, found 58 percent of 1,604 adult smartphone users had downloaded one of the estimated 40,000 available health-related mobile apps, and 42 percent had downloaded five or more. But 46 percent reported having downloaded an app they no longer used, according to the study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research mHealth and uHealth. “Smartphone applications have tremendous potential to help market healthy lifestyle habits to people who may be harder to reach in other ways, especially minorities, and those with lower incomes and serious health problems,” senior investigator and NYU Langone epidemiologist Dustin Duncan, said in a press release accompanying the article.

-TARGETED THERAPIES — Researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine say a new therapy that targets an aggressive form of lymphoma may increase the efficacy of treatment. The therapy targets proteins in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. "Targeted therapies have drastically advanced the field of cancer therapy, but even they have limitations," first author Dr. Rebecca Goldstein, a postdoctoral fellow in medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, said in a press release accompanying the article. "If you use a drug to block one mutant protein, eventually the cancer cell will become resistant to the targeted agent by finding another protein or pathway to use for survival.” http://bit.ly/1Hpxnjd
