Why do patients have to fill out forms when visiting a doctor? Why isn't there a "Facebook connect" for patient history/information?
There are many (many) reasons - so I'll list a few of the ones that I can think of off-hand.Here in the U.S. - we have a multi-party system: Provider-Payer-Patient (unlike other countries that have either a single payer - or universal coverage - or both). Given all the competing interests - at various times - incentives are often mis-aligned around the sharing of actual patient dataThose mis-aligned incentives have not, historically, focused on patient-centered solutions.  That's starting to change - but slowly - and only fairly recently.Small practices are the proverbial "last mile" in healthcare - so many are still paper basedThere are still tens/hundreds of thousands of small practices (1-9 docs) - and a lot of healthcare is still delivered through the small practice demographicThere are many types of specialties - and practice types - and they have different needs around patient data (an optometrist's needs are different from a dentist - which is different from a cardiologist)Both sides of the equation - doctors and patients - are very mobile (we move, change employers - doctors move, change practices) - and there is no "centralized" data store with each persons digitized health information.As we move and age - and unless we have a chronic condition - our health data can become relatively obsolete - fairly quickly (lab results from a year ago are of limited use today)Most of us (in terms of the population as a whole) are only infrequent users of the healthcare system more broadly (cold, flu, stomach, UTI etc....). In other words, we're pretty healthy, so issues around healthcare (and it's use) is a lower priorityThere is a significant loss of productivity when a practice moves from paper to electronic health records (thus the government "stimulus" funding - which is working - but still a long way to go)The penalties for PHI data breach under HIPAA are significant - so there has been a reluctance/fear to rely on electronic data.  This is also why the vast majority of data breaches are paper-based (typically USPS)This is why solutions like Google Health - and Revolution Health before them - failed - and closed completely (as in please remove your data - the service will no longer be available)All of which are contributing factors to why the U.S. Healthcare System looks like this:===============Chart Source: Mary Meeker - USA, Inc.

How do you get discharged from the Marines?
Ah, a subject near and dear to my heart. I thought about this almost every day while I was in the Marine Corps. It's just something you go through. I had seen guys get out on a medical discharge. It's possible. One guy got out because he couldn't shave everyday without getting painful bumps on his face and he couldn't use Magic Shave for some reason and he actually got out early. He was a shit bird anyway so no great loss. I saw guys go AWOL and never come back. Other than honorable. There really is no way to get out without screwing up your record unless you get a medical of some kind.If you don't care about ever getting a job then go ahead and just tell your CO that you want out of the Marine Corps. He might be able to help. You might save him some paperwork. Don't bother trying to pop on a piss test. That could take years.Or you could suck it up and do your time. Honestly, is it really that bad? You could try changing your MOS to something more appealing. You'd still be in the Marine Corps though.Now for words of encouragement. Remember when you were in boot camp and you thought it would never end? And those 3rd phase guys would say, "Stay motivated, Recruit" and it helped a little. And then before you knew it, you were one of those guys saying, "Stay motivated (or medicated, as it were)" and things started to look up. Well, it's just like that only longer. Everybody wants to get out at some point in their career. The problem is it's such a pain in the ass to get out. It's not like quitting McDonalds.I suggest you do your time and make the best of it. Then get out and join the reserves or get a job at Burger Fling and quit after the first day. And when they ask why, say "because I can!" Oh and grow a beard. Don't forget to grow a beard. And don't cut your hair for six months. That'll show 'em!One more thing. Don't forget that rank has its privileges. You may be getting pissed on now but that could change any time. Try applying yourself and see if that doesn't change your whole experience.
How can my wife receive my VA benefits if I pass away?
You would be best informed by calling the VA and telling them that you are interested in completing your advance planning and they can instruct you on how to proceed from there. I also encourage your wife to complete HER advance planning paperwork as well. (Do it together! Make some memories and ensure that you’re both on the same page!) Have you both talked about what you would like done in case of a medical emergency? Please complete Living Wills or your Advance Health Care Directives. Also, if you have children or assets, please go to an estate attorney and complete a Will or Trust. The VA can help with information regarding your benefits and also, options for body disposition and details on if you would like a military funeral/burial, etc…It’s best to do your advance planning while you are young and healthy and while the situation isn’t an emergency. Good for you for wanting to organize everything!I am not a doctor or lawyer, but my company provides a living will and a booklet that covers things like bills, social media information, passwords, information on obituaries and funerals and life celebrations and what you want done with your belongings, etc…The Good To Go! Departure File covers everything a traditional will or trust doesn’t cover. Feel free to investigate my site to learn more. www.goodtogopeace.org
How can I legally research the name of a WW2 US soldier? (I do not have much information)
David Fred shows you a valid link. It’s a start. Due to mis-adventures on my part over the years I ended up losing several of my discharge papers. That link, while it took awhile, got me the important stuff.Easier and quicker if you’re the actual Veteran. And be sure when you fill out the forms you ask for “Medals and Awards” for items to be included. That takes a bit longer yet. I wanted to be aware of anything which I was entitled to (hint, hint, VA benefits) that were earned during the times and places I served but weren’t awarded until after I was discharged.Try that Ancestry site. Even with changes in surnames. My Great-Great-Grandfather on my Mother’s side served during the US Civil War. Even with mis-spell’s due to his name not even being my Mom’s maiden name, it put me on track. I was able to then Google the surname as mis-spelled on “Suttler’s Receipts” when he was a POW.Also the Church of Latter Day Saint’s (Mormons, I believe), have a site that may track as you get closer and whittle down the options.As a side note, I have expanded the topics categories to include Genealogy this may be useful to others. And it may open more ideas from others more well in it than I on your search.It can end up being fascinating.
Why do ex-employers refuse to fill out the VA form 21-4192 for a vet?
VA Form 21–4192 is an application for disability benefits and like similar state benefits, it must be filled out by the veteran or by his or her qualified representative. This is a private, sensitive, legal document and every dot or dash in it can be critical, so must be accurate and verifiable.Employers have zero responsibility to fill out this form or furnish information for it, however, Social Security would have all the information required that the Department of Defense did not have. The veteran’s DD-214 is likely required, but does not furnish all the information required on the form.
How do you get the VA to upgrade a disability?
There is a possibility that Veterans can get their disability pension, and/or compensation upgraded, regardless of their present percentage rating.One can ask their VA Benefit, and/or VA Regional Office, or closest VA Vet Center, for the necessary VA Application Form, for upgrading your current Service Connection Disability Percentage Rating.After one receives the upgrade VA form, fill it out. There is assistance provided at one’s VA Regional Office or nearest VA Vet Center if one needs help feeling it out. Also, there are various Non Profit Veteran Service Organizations that may help. One can also ask the VA will they refer one’s request on to the VA Board Of Pension And Compensation for a upgrade evaluation, where one might stand a better chance in getting what one is seeking.To accommodate one’s application, it might be very beneficial and helpful, if one writes a Brief Narrative, explaining how bad, and the pain and suffering one is continued to endure because of one’s service connected disability(s).It is advisable to go to one’s primary care Physician to notify him/her that one is filing a claim with the VA for a disability percentage upgrade. One can ask their physician if they will you do a medical/ and/or mental health opinion to how bad or how my disability has become worse.Also send that to the VA. Send copies only ! It pays to be Patient and Persistent when dealing with a government agency.
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.
