How Physicians Are Embracing Preventative Care

Joe Cantlupe, for HealthLeaders Media , January 6, 2011

Kanter is excited about the possibilities. I keep thinking about the quality initiatives being launched under healthcare reform, and many of the plans are wrapped around the idea of detecting health issues involving patients before they become full-blown problems. And that's what the POE is all about. Kanter says the POE is working for physicians, too.

"Physicians like POE because it allows them to do what they were trained to do: talk with patients, diagnose issues and treat them," Kanter says.

Preventative vs. preventive June 7, 2010 By Anne 2 Comments Preventive or preventative? Both words have the same meaning[INVALID]intended or used to prevent or hinder[INVALID]but they're not equal in status for careful users of English. Preventive is the real word[INVALID]that is, it is the original adjectival form of prevent[INVALID]but preventative is now so common that we can't help but accept it. Still, if you wish to be taken seriously in formal contexts, you might want to consider using preventive instead of preventative. Although preventative seems to be gaining ground, preventive is still far more common. In web searches, the ratio is still about 3:1 in favor of preventive.
