RELATED WORK Milton Wider, Yin M. Myint et al , discusses the comparative results of three thresholding segmentation methods. From this comparison it can be clearly seen that the proposed method is the most appropriate method for appendix image segmentation. When analyzed the extracted appendix image, it can be concluded that the normal probe view is the best transducer position. The Appendix ultrasound images with five different probe positions are taken using Aplio MX, Toshiba ultrasound machine available in the lab. J. Lam, C. Pahl, et al , proposed a series of image processing method including image enhancement, image segmentation and edge detection before measuring the appendiceal.
In this domain the White City VHA scores range from ones to fives. Two of the three elements scored a five, and one element scored a one. The VHA has a clear statement and commitment to PFCC. A model, Health for Life, was developed by the Office of Patient Centered Care (OPCC), which focuses on the whole person. Veterans health care goals, not the disease, are at the center of the care.
Labs such as Arterial blood gas gives information about a patient oxygenation, ventilation, and acid-base balance. Assess collaboration of client with healthcare team such as the physician, respiratory therapist.

The purpose of the HIPAA transactions and code set standards is to simplify the processes and decrease the costs associated with payment for health care services.

When the regulations take effect in October 2002, standard formats and code sets will take the place of any payer-specific or location-specific formats or requirements. ICD-9-CM Volume 1 and 2: Diagnosis Coding - ICD-9-CM is used to code and classify morbidity data from the inpatient and outpatient records, physician offices, and most National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) surveys.

Having standardized terminology will simplify the transference of data among providers and decrease misunderstandings. I feel that only a few individuals directly mentioned how big of an impact standardization will have on overall clinical workflow. Standardization will allow clinicians to dedicate more time to patient
