Bicycle Health Review

Bicycle Health is a treatment organization that specializes in the care of clients struggling with opioid use disorders. With nine locations from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Bicycle Health offers comprehensive medication-assisted treatment that integrates counseling with medications to treat opioids such as heroin, Fentanyl and Vicodin. Founded in 2018, the organization offers “telemedicine”, where modern technology enables physician consultations through video conferencing. Beyond the intake interview, individuals do not need to meet with team members in-person. Medication management is offered for clients in need of dual-diagnosis support for co-occurring physical and mental health conditions. The 12-step recovery model is also a component of the programming.

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning treatment clients undergo a comprehensive intake assessment that includes a physical and mental health exam as well as a complete history of substance use and withdrawal symptoms. From there, the Bicycle Health team determines the most effective individualized care strategy tailored to address the specific needs and goals of each client. The facility utilizes Suboxone and Subutex, FDA-approved medications that reduce painful opioid withdrawal symptoms and enable individuals to focus on recovery. In addition, Bicycle Health uses muscle relaxant medications when necessary. Methadone is not offered as it requires in-person visits. Clients can communicate with a physician or health coach through Bicycle Health’s app. There is no set treatment length. Individual needs dictate how long a client will require medication.

Bicycle Health employs an established team comprised of board-certified physicians, family and psychiatric nurse practitioners as well as health coaches. Many of the doctors specialize in preventative and family medicine. Medication management for co-occurring conditions is available as needed.

Extra 

Following the intake assessment, clients are no longer required to show up in-person. Prescriptions can be picked up personally, sent to a nearby pharmacy or even discreetly delivered to the client’s home. 

The Modesto location accepts Medicare.

In Summary

Bicycle Health is an organization that offers a comprehensive “telemedical” approach to care that remotely connects physicians with clients struggling with opioid use disorders. The facility places a premium on privacy and professional, individualized care. For anyone seeking a discrete medication-assisted program with an excellent team of physicians and nurses, Bicycle Health is an excellent resource.

Automotive industry – Wikipedia

Organizations involved with motor vehicles

The automotive industry comprises a wide range of companies and organizations involved in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and selling of motor vehicles.[1] It is one of the world’s largest industries by revenue. The automotive industry does not include industries dedicated to the maintenance of automobiles following delivery to the end-user,[citation needed] such as automobile repair shops and motor fuel filling stations.

The word automotive comes from the Greek autos (self), and Latin motivus (of motion), referring to any form of self-powered vehicle.[clarification needed] This term, as proposed by Elmer Sperry[2][need quotation to verify]
(1860-1930), first came into use with reference to automobiles in 1898.[3]

History[edit]

Fiat assembly line in 1961

The automotive industry began in the 1860s with hundreds of manufacturers that pioneered the horseless carriage. For many decades, the United States led the world in total automobile production. In 1929, before the Great Depression, the world had 32,028,500 automobiles in use, and the U.S. automobile industry produced over 90% of them. At that time, the U.S. had one car per 4.87 persons.[4] After 1945, the U.S. produced about 75 percent of world’s auto production. In 1980, the U.S. was overtaken by Japan and then became world’s leader again in 1994. In 2006, Japan narrowly passed the U.S. in production and held this rank until 2009, when China took the top spot with 13.8 million units. With 19.3 million units manufactured in 2012, China almost doubled the U.S. production of 10.3 million units, while Japan was in third place with 9.9 million units.[5] From 1970 (140 models) over 1998 (260 models) to 2012 (684 models), the number of automobile models in the U.S. has grown exponentially.[6]

Safety is a state that implies to be protected from any risk, danger, damage or cause of injury. In the automotive industry, safety means that users, operators or manufacturers do not face any risk or danger coming from the motor vehicle or its spare parts. Safety for the automobiles themselves, implies that there is no risk of damage.

Safety in the automotive industry is particularly important and therefore highly regulated. Automobiles and other motor vehicles have to comply with a certain number of regulations, whether local or international, in order to be accepted on the market. The standard ISO 26262, is considered as one of the best practice framework for achieving automotive functional safety.[7]

In case of safety issues, danger, product defect or faulty procedure during the manufacturing of the motor vehicle, the maker can request to return either a batch or the entire production run. This procedure is called product recall. Product recalls happen in every industry and can be production-related or stem from the raw material.

Product and operation tests and inspections at different stages of the value chain are made to avoid these product recalls by ensuring end-user security and safety and compliance with the automotive
