For Sale – Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070ti

Hi guys,

Purchased this 1070ti from these forums in March. Thread here:

For Sale – Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070ti

Used it for about 2 weeks to play Overwatch and has been pretty much unused since, as I’ve been abroad for most of the time. Bit of a waste to have this in what is only a HTPC so looking to move it on to someone who will use it properly. Excellent condition given how little its been used.

£240 delivered.

Price and currency: 240
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT
Location: Slough
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

A web-based approach to preauthorization for insurance

Preauthorizations for insurance are akin to a four-letter word for providers. A March 2018 study by the American Medical Association showed 84% of physicians found the burden of having to get insurance prior approvals either high or extremely high, and 86% said the problem is just getting worse.

Enter startup ZappRx with a portable web-based app it hopes will eliminate the tedious back and forth with insurance companies and streamline physician communication and patient consent. Armed with six years of research and product development, as well as $41 million in just-raised B-level funding, ZappRx hopes to tackle this relatively obscure — and often overlooked by mainstream health IT efforts — problem on a broad scale.

And there’s no question it is a problem. Today’s aging population requires more access than ever to specialty medications for conditions ranging from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to cancer, and the vast majority of those drugs require preauthorization for insurance payment due to their high cost. In most practices, prior authorizations are done by staff, by hand, and transmitted via fax machine.

“The way they tracked preauthorizations before involved sticky notes and whiteboards and Excel spreadsheets,” said Libby Webb, senior vice president of product at ZappRx. “There was nothing that existed that kept that information in a centralized location.” The process was labor intensive, but also off-putting to patients. The AMA study showed 78% of doctors believed the delays inherent in preauthorization for insurance could lead to patients abandoning the treatment altogether.

With the ZappRx platform, the provider’s team can use an iPhone or iPad or tablet to fill out forms for preauthorization for insurance, capture patient consent and send the information to the insurance company. A central dashboard allows staff to see at a glance exactly where each request stands and provides access to any needed follow-up requests. For states allowing electronic physician signatures, that feature is built in. “The app saves all the data and it’s essentially ‘one and done’ for each patient,” Webb said.

“From the moment a patient is diagnosed and drugs are selected we process that entire journey through our web-based app today,” Webb said. “Otherwise it is a paper-based process with staff literally filling out forms by hand and faxing them to the payer for prior authorization. There is no way to know what’s happening with the payer or when forms are sent to the specialty pharmacy. It’s a black hole.”

The black hole is why ZappRx was founded in 2012, Webb said. The CEO had a family member who, while waiting on preauthorization for insurance of a specialty medication, grew dramatically more ill. So the idea for ZappRx was born with the hope that medications could get into the hands of the patients more quickly than before.

But providers and payers may also benefit from the streamlined process. Insurance companies devote a lot of staff to handling incoming faxes and they also have to spend time deciphering handwritten and often blurry paperwork, Webb said. Instead payers can print the ZappRx form and move forward. Provider practices may find this also eases the administrative burden for them, Webb said, which can translate to less staff turnover. “People don’t go into medicine to do paperwork.”

To date the ZappRx solution is at work in over 30 practices and large academic medical facilities. Now the platform is focused on three pulmonology diseases, and is in beta for gastroenterology, and with plans to move into rheumatology and orphan diseases/cancer in the near future, Webb said.

And, while ZappRx does not currently integrate preauthorization for insurance with any EHRs, Webb said the company is ready to work with customers on a plug and play API-based integration layer to make that vision a reality.

What’s Next for Visual Studio

Since we launched Visual Studio 2017 in March of that year, it has become our most popular Visual Studio release ever. Your feedback has helped our team publish seven updates since our initial GA, which have improved solution load performance, build performance, and unit test discovery performance. We’ve also made Visual Studio 2017 our most accessible releases ever, helping developers with low-vision or no-vision be more productive.

Our team is focused on introducing features that make every developer more productive: better navigation features like “go to all” (Ctrl + ,), features to improve code quality like Live Unit Testing, and most recently, to enable real time collaboration with Live Share. And we have even started to show how we will use artificial intelligence to assist developers with IntelliCode.

Now, it’s time to start to look at what comes next.

The short answer is Visual Studio 2019

Because the Developer Tools teams (especially .NET and Roslyn) do so much work in GitHub, you’ll start to see check-ins that indicate that we’re laying the foundation for Visual Studio 2019, and we’re now in the early planning phase of Visual Studio 2019 and Visual Studio for Mac. We remain committed to making Visual Studio faster, more reliable, more productive for individuals and teams, easier to use, and easier to get started with. Expect more and better refactorings, better navigation, more capabilities in the debugger, faster solution load, and faster builds. But also expect us to continue to explore how connected capabilities like Live Share can enable developers to collaborate in real time from across the world and how we can make cloud scenarios like working with online source repositories more seamless. Expect us to push the boundaries of individual and team productivity with capabilities like IntelliCode, where Visual Studio can use Azure to train and deliver AI-powered assistance into the IDE.

Our goal with this next release is to make it a simple, easy upgrade for everyone – for example, Visual Studio 2019 previews will install side by side with Visual Studio 2017 and won’t require a major operating system upgrade.

As for timing of the next release, we’ll say more in the coming months, but be assured we want to deliver Visual Studio 2019 quickly and iteratively. We’ve learned a lot from the cadence we’ve used with Visual Studio 2017, and one of the biggest things we have learned is that we can do a lot of good work if we focus on continually delivering and listening to your feedback. There are no bits to preview yet, but the best way to ensure you are on the cutting edge will be to watch this blog and to subscribe to the Visual Studio 2017 Preview.

In the meantime, our team will continue to publish a roadmap of what we’re planning online, work in many open source repositories, and take your feedback through our Developer Community website. This blog post is just another example of sharing our plans with you early, so you can plan and work with us to continue to make Visual Studio a great coding environment.
