To allow comparing between interferograms created from data of different wavelengths, the ALOS interferogram phase values were recomputed (and wrapped to dimensions of -[pi];[pi])to the scale of ERS/Envisat using a simple formula:
Using Equation 1, the phase difference in ALOS interferogram is recomputed by a ratio of ALOS/ERS radar carrier wavelengths.
ALOS interferogram shows clear high coherent areas.
It is possible to compute the corresponding rate of subsidence from ALOS interferogram (i.
We use the simulation to show that measuring ACH against a fixed time interval following hospital discharge is not ALOS biased.
Such an alternative measure might better reflect agencies' impacts on readmission rates when ALOS varies over time, as some changes in the reported ACH measure might only reflect changes in ALOS.
We calculated ALOS as the sum of the LOS for all patients divided by the number of patients for each HHA and month.
Maintaining and utilizing physician performance profiles in the context of 1:1 proactive discussions also produced substantial persisting results that reduced ALOS, denial rates, and the utilization of drugs, imaging studies and laboratories.
Relational coordination, frequent, accurate, timely communication plus problem-solving, shared knowledge and goals, and mutual respect among health care professionals also is shown to improve quality of care and decreased ALOS.
Three other women share the limelight with Alos in Tuba's Council, which accounts for 50% of the representation of women.
However disappointing the statistics and the system are, there are a few women who have dared to pierce the formidable walls of the political system and have emerged as victors:Tuba Councilor Jessie Marie Alos, Benguet Vice Governor Edna Tabanda and Atok Mayor Concepcion Balao.
Alos, 51, was an AB Literature and Philosophy major from the University of the Philippines Diliman, who had entered politics as a political neophyte in 1995.
