A concussion monitor to measure hard knocks
The New York Times
VideoBriefOn a frigid night recently in Randolph, N.J., the Jersey Wildcats junior hockey team flew across the home rink during practice at Aspen Ice Arena, sending ice into the air. Hockey is known for its collisions and concussions aren't unusual, but the players didn't seem particularly worried. On the backs of their heads were flashing green lights, signifying that all was well. The light is part of a head impact sensor called the Checklight, made by Reebok.

Rating sites becoming an important tool for patients
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
Despite physicians' dislike of online rating sites, a survey finds patients are increasingly relying on them when shopping for a new doctor. A survey conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan Medical School found that when choosing a doctor, physician rating sites weren't ranked as high as other factors such as word of mouth from family and friends or whether a physician accepts the patient's insurance. But there is evidence the rating sites have become an important tool. And use of them is likely to continue growing.

The motivation and genesis for the creation of the ASD Mentorship Program
ASD
In one of our initial contacts with non renewing members several reasons for non renewals were the lack of personal contact or interactions with the Academy. These former members felt left out, not having any personal connection with the Academy nor any reason to maintain their membership. It is for these reasons that the Mentorship Program was developed, with the intention to make our Academy more personal and closer together. The belief is that with mentorship creating many more personal interactions, more opportunities to network, interact and learn would occur and benefit us all.

Manage your dental office schedule
By Jill Nesbitt
One of the most critical responsibilities an office manager has is to manage the schedule. The dentist wants it to be productive. The hygienists want it to be full. The assistants want it to have enough time to turn over rooms and catch up on cleaning instruments. The receptionists are busy trying to fill the schedule when it has holes and confirm and take care of patients when it's full.

Swedish researchers report they have found a way to test blood for a protein called total tau, which is released when the brain is injured. The amount of T-tau is apparently key to diagnosing a concussion and predicting when players can get back into the game.
