Among the changes included in the president’s 2014 budget blueprint are funding boosts for mental health and food and drug safety as well as the elimination of the SGR formula to set Medicare physician payment rates. The proposal also delays funding cuts to hospitals that treat the uninsured.Medscape: Obama Budget Replaces Sequester Cuts And SGRPresident Barack Obama today released a proposed $3.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2014 that would shrink the federal deficit by $1.8 trillion over the course of 10 years, but not on the backs of physicians. Instead, they are on the receiving end of some federal largesse. For starters, Obama’s deficit reduction, similar to that in the budget plan approved on March 23 by the Democratic-controlled Senate, would replace the automatic, across-the-board cuts called sequestration that include a 2% decrease in Medicare reimbursement for physicians (Lowes, 4/10). Medpage Today: HHS Budget Plan Cuts Billions From MedicareThe Obama administration released its fiscal year 2014 budget proposal Wednesday, trimming nearly $400 billion over 10 years from Medicare as expected. … The $967 billion proposed for the overall HHS budget, however, is larger than the $848.2 billion actually spent in FY 2012 and the $907.8 billion estimated for FY 2013. Medicare would eat up 54 percent — about $522 billion — of the amount proposed for next year, while 31 percent would go to Medicaid, with the remainder spent on other programs, including Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (Frieden, 4/10).Modern Healthcare: Obama Proposes $5.6B In Medicare Payment Cuts For FY 2014President Barack Obama’s highly anticipated fiscal 2014 budget (PDF) released Wednesday proposes $5.6 billion in Medicare payment cuts for that year and about $400 billion in total federal healthcare savings over the next decade. In a news conference at the White House, the president called his budget—which aims to reduce the deficit by nearly $1.8 trillion over 10 years and would eliminate the sequester cuts—“a fiscally responsible blueprint for middle-class jobs and growth” (Daly and Zigmond, 4/10). The Washington Post’s WonkBlog: The White House Wants To Reverse $500 Million In Medicaid CutsThe White House wants to reverse $500 million in cuts to the Medicaid program meant to start in 2014, aiming to ensure that states have adequate funds to assist those that remain uninsured under the Affordable Care Act. A bit of history is helpful here. For decades now, Medicaid has sent states billions of dollars in something called Disproportionate Share, or DSH, payments. These funds, which totaled $11.3 billion in 2011, go to the hospitals that provide a higher level of uncompensated care and are meant to help offset the bills of the uninsured (Kliff, 4/10).The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire: HHS Budget Aims To Boost Mental-Health ProgramsThe Obama administration is proposing to increase spending for mental health programs and the children’s Head Start program while cutting funding for low-income energy assistance and community service grants. The 2014 budget for the Department of Health and Human Services released Wednesday totals $80.1 billion, about $4 billion above the enacted budget for fiscal year 2012. It calls for $1.5 billion for the government to build an insurance exchange that will allow certain Americans to shop for health insurance, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday. The federal exchange is targeted to begin operating Oct. 1. and sell insurance coverage that kicks in Jan. 1 (Dooren and Burton, 4/10).Reuters: Health Budget Spends On Mental Health; Cuts MedicarePresident Barack Obama’s proposed 2014 budget includes an increase of $3.9 billion to the health department as it prepares to implement the administration’s healthcare overhaul, setting money aside for mental health, but cutting medicare. The budget asks for $1.5 billion in increased funding to help set up healthcare exchanges and educate consumers on the enrollment process, which is scheduled to begin on October 1 (Clarke, 4/10).ABC News: Obama Budget Includes $235 Million For Mental Health CarePresident Obama is asking for $235 million as part of his new budget proposal to fund mental health initiatives. Of the funds, $130 million will be used to train teachers and others to identify signs of mental illness in students and provide them with access to treatment. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius wrote in a blog on her agency’s website Tuesday that the funds include $205 million to help identify mental health problems, improve access to mental health services and support safer school environments. The plan would affect at least 8,000 schools according to Sebelius. Another $30 million will go toward public health research on gun violence (Mohney, 4/10). Politico: CMS, FDA Budget Winners; CDC, NIH Take HitPresident Barack Obama’s budget has significant new funding to implement the health reform law, modernize food and drug safety and implement mental health programs. The White House is requesting a 14 percent increase in its budget for the Department of Health and Human Services, much of it focused on the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Haberkorn, 4/11). CQ HealthBeat: HHS: NIH Would Get Unexpected BoostDefying predictions of flat funding or a spending cut, President Barack Obama proposes fattening the budget at the National Institutes of Health by $472 million in fiscal 2014. At the same time, his budget request would slash funding at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by $432 million. Both changes are in comparison with fiscal 2012 spending levels (Reichard, 4/10). This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.

Those destinations include YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Connected TV platforms like Amazon. The PixabilityONE platform can be used by brands and agencies as a self service solution to run their own campaigns, and is also used for all campaigns that Pixability manages for major brands such as Puma, Ford, KIND, L’Oreal and Bose.Analyst firm eMarketer and others are estimating that YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Connected TV will represent over 75% of the ad market for video next year. Yet brands and agencies often have siloed teams to manage, measure and report on campaigns run on each platform. PixabilityONE provides a unified view of campaigns across these premier channels for a more holistic, efficient approach to video advertising.“With PixabilityONE, we can, for the first time, run in-house campaigns across major video ad channels through one platform. At the same time, the platform also delivers campaign performance that’s well above what we see when we run campaigns individually on native platforms,” commented Mark Williams VP of Distribution from Fullscreen, a social content company and a strategic partner of Pixability”Marketing Technology News: Digital Communication Tools Leave Many Workers Feeling Squeezed out by Tech-Savvy ColleaguesThe PixabilityONE platform includes Audience Builder, for audience targeting; the Campaign Optimization Engine (COE) for campaign optimization; and a 24/7 reporting interface that details results across all platforms cohesively. Audience Builder provides a single interface for establishing targeting parameters across premier platforms like YouTube and Facebook. It includes pre-bid campaign brand-safety/suitability filtering; vertical level benchmarks to help with planning; AI-built stock audiences to launch campaigns faster; the ability to save and share audiences across teams; and a creative library to host video ads.The Campaign Optimization Engine (COE) is a campaign optimization engine that uses data science to auto-optimize over 37,000 times a day across all campaigns. Whereas most video ad campaigns are still manually run by humans and may only be able to optimize dozens of times in a day, Pixability automatically optimizes hundreds of times per day per campaign. It’s also the only campaign engine that optimizes to multiple KPIs.Finally, the PIxabilityONE Dashboard allows brands and agencies to manage video reporting holistically across multiple native platforms. While marketers often miss opportunities for cross-platform learnings by managing and reporting on each platform independently, Pixability is the only platform that reports on results from YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and CTV all in one interface. Through integrations with 3rd party measurement partners, it can also report on metrics like brand lift and store visits and break down results on a granular geographic basis.Marketing Technology News: Selligent Marketing Cloud Study Reveal Digital Marketers Struggle to Deliver Consistent Omnichannel Experiences“Using PixabilityOne to execute – and ultimately optimize–our cross-platform video ad campaigns enables us to connect with consumers at every stage in their journey with our brand, ultimately leading us to achieve the greatest impact,” said Hermann Hassenstein, Head Of Marketing Planning, Global Marketing at Puma, Head Of Marketing Planning, Global Marketing at Puma, Head Of Marketing Planning, Global Marketing at Puma.“One of the biggest challenges brands and agencies face today is the siloed management of video campaigns across the most important video platforms, resulting in missed opportunities and a failure to optimize,” commented David George, CEO of Pixability. “Our market-first platform unifies campaign management all in one place, allowing marketers to better assess and allocate their investments to maximize results.”Marketing Technology News: LivePerson Wins 2019 Artificial Intelligence Breakthrough Award
The latest edition of Convergence Research Group’s Couch Potato Report says PayTV revenues in the US declined by 3% last year to $103.4bn while online video streaming service increased revenues by 37% to $16.3bn. However one of CRG’s most interesting findings is that skinny bundles don’t seem to be gaining traction.Skinny Bundles have become much more prominent in the market over the last two years as traditional cable and satellite operators, plus some new market entrants, have sought to establish a programming alternative to Netflix, Amazon and Hulu.However CRG’s finding is that this new mid-market is not proving compelling enough to win over US consumers. CRG’s assessment is that: “Attempts to convert cord cutters to skinny bundle subscribers won’t pay off. With lacklustre margins, programming gaps and technical issues, live multichannel OTT provides little counter to category killers Netflix & Amazon that sell at lower price points and essentially without advertising. We believe a number of OTT plays, including large and niche, will fail due to insufficient subscriber traction, cost, and competition.”Among other key findings, CRG expects the number of streaming subscribers in the US to surpass PayTV subscribers sometime during 2019.
