It looks as if no development took place in the area and no one paid attention to hill station's uplift, chairman PBoI said after visiting different parts of Fort Monroe.
It would help promote tourism in the country, chairman PBoI said, adding that foreigners would visit such areas in greater number once these are developed on international standards.
Given the high volume of patient care claims that PBOI submits annually--the group sees between 40,000 and 60,000 patients every year--Bizub says the need to select an RCM vendor integrated with the organization's EHR was vital; this was particularly so since most of PBOIs billing operations are outsourced.
The folks at PBOI went live with an enterprise performance management (EPM) system shortly after having implemented their EHR in 2006.
The PBOI was used in this study to assess the extent to which the clinicians' impressions of Paul corresponded with the traits and characteristics that they might attribute to him on the basis of his stated birth order.
Each PBOI scale originally contained nine items; however, three items from the First scale were excluded from the analyses because they were endorsed uniformly by participants in all birth-order conditions as probably true of Paul.
It is important to note that the terms birth order or birth role did not appear anywhere in the PBOI items or in the title of the questionnaire.
Because the use of the PBOI for this study differed from the original purposes of the instrument, its psychometric properties were evaluated for this sample.
The PBOI items were also factor analyzed using the principal components extraction method and an oblique rotation, a method identical to the factor methods used in the instrument's development (Campbell et al., 1991).
A third preliminary analysis was performed to examine the frequency with which the clinician respondents endorsed the PBOI items (i.e., attributed them to Paul) compared with the frequency with which such attributions were made by persons who exemplified the four birth orders.
To investigate this possibility, the mean proportion of items that clinicians attributed to Paul (i.e., answered affirmatively) was calculated using the items within each PBOI scale corresponding to his stated birth order.
On the basis of these results, I concluded that the PBOI was a valid tool for assessing the participants' birth-order-related impressions of Paul.
