Medicare definition: Federal program, created by Public Law 89-97, Title XVIII-Health Insurance for the Aged, a 1965 amendment to the Social Security Act, that provides health insurance benefits to persons over the age of 65 and others eligible for Social Security benefits. It consists of two separate but coordinated programs: hospital insurance (MEDICARE PART A) and supplementary medical insurance (MEDICARE PART B). (Hospital Administration Terminology, AHA, 2d ed and A Discursive Dictionary of Health Care, US House of Representatives, 1976)
Medicare definition: The US federal health insurance program run by the Health Care Financing Administration for people 65 years of age or older, certain people with disabilities who have not reached this age, and individuals with permanent kidney failure with dialysis or a transplant. People over 65 years old, younger disabled people, and dialysis patients are eligible for the program regardless of their income. Participating beneficiaries pay part of healthcare costs through deductible amounts. Limited monthly premiums are required from beneficiaries for non-hospital coverage.
Mandatory Programs definition: Programs in which participation is required.
Medicaid definition: Federal program, created by Public Law 89-97, Title XIX, a 1965 amendment to the Social Security Act, administered by the states, that provides health care benefits to indigent and medically indigent persons.
Medicaid definition: A joint federal and state program that provides assistance with healthcare costs to people with low income and limited resources. Medicaid is run by state and local governments within federal guidelines. Healthcare bills are paid from federal, state and local tax funds. The eligibility for the program does not depend on a person's age. Participating beneficiaries usually pay no part of costs for covered healthcare expenses except a small co-payment required in some cases.
Program Development definition: The process of formulating, improving, and expanding educational, managerial, or service-oriented work plans (excluding computer program development).
Program Evaluation definition: Studies designed to assess the efficacy of programs. They may include the evaluation of cost-effectiveness, the extent to which objectives are met, or impact.
Software definition: Sequential operating instructions for a particular problem or function to be run on a digital computer.
computer program/software definition: data and instructions stored in the computer in a format to be used by the computer for its processing functions.
Computer Program definition: A set of coded instructions, which a computer follows in processing data, performing an operation, or solving a logical problem, upon execution of the program.
Immunization Programs definition: Organized services to administer immunization procedures in the prevention of various diseases. The programs are made available over a wide range of sites: schools, hospitals, public health agencies, voluntary health agencies, etc. They are administered to an equally wide range of population groups or on various administrative levels: community, municipal, state, national, international.
Diversion Program definition: A type of program designed to assist individuals and families to address diverse issues such as alcohol and drug abuse, child disobedience, behavioral deviations, misdemeanor and felony. Essential components of the program include but are not limited to: information and referral, case management, advocacy, short term support, help in identifying and assessing the services most appropriate to meet the needs of the individual and family. The program helps to guide each individual towards a positive understanding, acceptance and change of the problems at hand whereby the health and safety of the public is maintained.
Intramural Research Program definition: The office that oversees research efforts which take place on the NIH campus.
Program Research Project Grants definition: The program project grant is an institutional award made in the name of a program director for the support of a broadly based, long-term, multidisciplinary research program that has a well-defined central theme, research focus, or objective. The grant funds at least three interrelated projects and, often, core resources that support at least three projects at all times. Interrelationships and synergism among component research projects should result in greater scientific contributions than if each project were supported through a separate mechanism. The grant is based on the concept that projects closely related to a central theme can be conducted more effectively and efficiently through a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary approach.
Career Transition Award definition: The purpose of the NCI Transition Career Development Award (K22) is to provide "protected time" for newly independent investigators to develop and receive support for their initial cancer research programs. This award is intended to facilitate the transition of investigators from the mentored to the independent stage of their careers in cancer research. It applies to clinicians who are pursuing basic science careers; clinicians who are pursuing careers in patient-oriented research; and to individuals pursuing careers in the prevention, control and population sciences.
Fellowship Program definition: Stipends or grants-in-aid granted by foundations or institutions to individuals for study.
Specialized Center Grant definition: Support all aspects of R&D from basic to clinical and may involve ancillary support activities such as patient care. They differ from program project grants in that they are usually developed in response to an institute initiative and subsequently receive continuous attention from its staff. Centers also may serve as regional or national resources for special research.
monitoring program definition: An officially or unofficially instituted program to track acts of a particular type or categorization.
COILS Program definition: A program that compares a sequence to a database of known parallel two-stranded coiled-coils and derives a similarity score. By comparing this score to the distribution of scores in globular and coiled-coil proteins, the program then calculates the probability that the sequence will adopt a coiled-coil conformation.
Program definition: A broad framework of goals to be achieved.
phastCon definition: A computer program based on a two-state phylogenetic hidden Markov model (phylo-HMM) that works by fitting a phylo-HMM to the data by maximum likelihood, subject to constraints designed to calibrate the model across species groups, and then predicting conserved elements based on this model.
Chromint Software definition: A method for detection of chromatography peaks based on the analysis of the profile of the first derivative of the signal calculated with a Savitzky-Golay filter. This provides a list of peaks and their position with typically around 25 peaks detected per electropherogram.
