HIPAA administrative simplification: enforcement. Interim final rule; request for comments. (2/82)

The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) adopts this interim final rule to conform the enforcement regulations promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) to the effective statutory revisions made pursuant to the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the HITECH Act), which was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). More specifically, this interim final rule amends HIPAA's enforcement regulations, as they relate to the imposition of civil money penalties, to incorporate the HITECH Act's categories of violations, tiered ranges of civil money penalty amounts, and revised limitations on the Secretary's authority to impose civil money penalties for established violations of HIPAA's Administrative Simplification rules (HIPAA rules). This interim final rule does not make amendments with respect to those enforcement provisions of the HITECH Act that are not yet effective under the applicable statutory provisions. Such amendments will be subject to forthcoming rulemaking(s).  (+info)

A framework for predicting EHR adoption attitudes: a physician survey. (3/82)

With a focus on improving the quality of patient care, the President George W. Bush called for electronic health records (EHRs) for all Americans by the year 2014; however, recent estimates for EHR adoption in the ambulatory care environment are just over 10 percent. The objective of this study was to determine the individual characteristics and the social and technical factors that may contribute to physician acceptance of EHRs. This first paper of a two-part study presents a framework grounded in Diffusion of Innovations theory and the Technology Acceptance Model, which was developed using case study and survey methods, and tested using structural equation modeling (SEM). Model variables explained over 73 percent of the variance in attitude toward EHRs, and acceptable model fit was achieved. Lack of user acceptance continues to impede diffusion of EHRs, and this analysis supports the impact that leadership and other organizational changes have on user adoption.  (+info)

Exploring medical identity theft. (4/82)

The crime of medical identity theft is a growing concern in healthcare institutions. A mixed-method study design including a two-stage electronic survey, telephone survey follow-up, and on-site observations was used to evaluate current practices in admitting and registration departments to reduce the occurrence of medical identity theft. Survey participants were chief compliance officers in acute healthcare organizations and members of the Health Care Compliance Association. Study results indicate variance in whether or how patient identity is confirmed in healthcare settings. The findings of this study suggest that information systems need to be designed for more efficient identity management. Admitting and registration staff must be trained, and compliance with medical identity theft policies and procedures must be monitored. Finally, biometric identity management solutions should be considered for stronger patient identification verification.  (+info)

Health information technology: initial set of standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for electronic health record technology. Interim final rule. (5/82)

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is issuing this interim final rule with a request for comments to adopt an initial set of standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria, as required by section 3004(b)(1) of the Public Health Service Act. This interim final rule represents the first step in an incremental approach to adopting standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria to enhance the interoperability, functionality, utility, and security of health information technology and to support its meaningful use. The certification criteria adopted in this initial set establish the capabilities and related standards that certified electronic health record (EHR) technology will need to include in order to, at a minimum, support the achievement of the proposed meaningful use Stage 1 (beginning in 2011) by eligible professionals and eligible hospitals under the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs.  (+info)

Mission-driven priorities: public health in health information exchange. (6/82)

Developing state- and nationwide health information exchange (HIE) is one of the health priorities defined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. States are expected to take leadership in statewide planning and implementation. To balance limited resources among mandated responsibilities and emerging HIE accountability, we maintain that state public health practitioners must integrate HIE into our mission-driven practice in five priority areas: 1) connecting real-time disease surveillance and notifiable case reporting through HIE to better protect citizens; 2) sharing public health-managed clinical information through HIE for preventive services, 3) conduct health education for targeted populations via HIE to promote healthy lifestyles; 4) leverage public health informatics with Medicaid information system to provide quality healthcare; and 5) serve as a regulator for standardized HIT to participate in healthcare reform. We summarize public health's broad practice into "Five P's" and link each domain's historical foundation, current and proposed practices to sustain success.  (+info)

Meaningful Use Rules Proposed for Electronic Health Record Incentives Under HITECH Act By: Cherilyn G. Murer, JD, CRA Introduction On December 30, 2009, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) established a "Hypocrisy Hall of Fame" to list Republican Representatives who had voted against ARRA but who then sought or took credit for ARRA programs in their districts. As of September 2011, the DCCC was listing 128 House Republicans in this category.[88] Newsweek reported that many of the Republican legislators who publicly argued that the stimulus would not create jobs were writing letters seeking stimulus programs for their districts on the grounds that the spending would create jobs.[89]. The stimulus has been criticized as being too small. In July 2010, a group of 40 prominent economists issued a statement calling for expanded stimulus programs to reduce unemployment. They also challenged the view that the priority should be reducing the deficit: "Making deficit reduction the first target, without addressing the chronic underlying deficiency of demand, is exactly the error of the 1930s."[90]. In July 2010, the White House Council ...

As a result, the Council of State Govern-ments Justice Center (CSG Justice Center) -the tech-nical assistance provider working in partnership with BJA and Pew -launched a comprehensive analysis of the state s criminal justice system. To guide the CSG Justice Center s ...
This testimony discusses the implementation of high speed intercity passenger rail projects in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act). The $8 billion provided by the Recovery Act for high speed and other intercity passenger rail projects has focused more attention on and generated a great deal of anticipation about the possibility of developing high speed rail systems in the United States. These projects are seen by some as serving an important transportation role, by moving people quickly and safely, reducing highway and airport congestion, and being environmentally friendly. This testimony focuses on (1) the factors identified that affect the economic viability of high speed rail projects and (2) how the Federal Railroad Administrations (FRA) recent strategic plan incorporates those factors.. While the potential benefits of high speed rail projects are many, these projects--both here and abroad--are costly, take years to develop and build, and require ...
Federal and state governments are offering various incentives, rebates and tax credits to encourage investment in both energy efficiency and renewable energy projects because they do understand how the two work separately and together for the benefit of the country. Most notably, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 designated $4 billion dollars in Federal renewable energy loan guarantees and $16.8 billion dollars for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Most of this funding is realized in the form of Federal tax credits which greatly help to offset the costs of on-site renewable energy projects for private business. Federal funding from the Reinvestment Act pushed the U.S. solar industry to grow its revenue by 36 percent, boost its installations by 5 percent, and increase total electrical capacity by more than 2 gigawatts in 2009. Energy efficiency incentives include the Federal Energy-Efficient Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction, in addition to hundreds of ...
By Eric Sauter. A scientist from The Scripps Research Institutes Florida campus has been awarded a pair of research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) totaling just over $1.4 million to pursue drug discovery work in both Alzheimers disease and alcoholism. The grants have gone to Claes Wahlestedt, who is professor and director of Neuroscience Discovery at Scripps Florida. The first grant, which will fund the study of non-coding RNA modulators in Alzheimers disease, is for approximately $924,000 over two years; the other award, about $484,000 for one year, will be used to study and develop novel ligands for a specific receptor that plays a role in alcohol dependence. The studies are being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the economic stimulus package passed by the Congress in February. To date about 100 Scripps Research Institute investigators in California and Florida have won supplemental grants from the NIH under the Recovery and Reinvestment Act. ...
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 established the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program for Medicaid and Medicare providers. Beginning in 2011, eligible Medi-Cal professionals and hospitals will be able to receive incentive payments to assist in purchasing, installing, and using electronic health records in their practices.. The Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT) has been established in DHCS to develop goals and metrics for the program, establish policies and procedures, and to implement systems to disburse, track, and report the incentive payments. OHIT works closely with the Office of the Deputy Secretary for Health Information Technology in the California Health and Human Services Agency to coordinate the Medi-Cal EHR Incentive Program with wider health information exchange efforts throughout California and the nation.

In order to qualify for federal incentive payments available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), health care providers (referred to as Eligible Professionals or EPs in the federal regulations) must meet "Meaningful Use" (MU) requirements for the use of electronic medical records. EPs can receive as much as $44,000 over a five-year period through Medicare, and as much as $63,750 over six years through Medicaid. Providers can choose to apply for whichever program they are eligible, but not for both.. Meaningful use stage 1 is the first phase of the incentive program, and all EPs must adopt an EMR that meets the required criteria by the end of 2014 in order to be eligible for government incentives. For providers to receive the maximum incentive, they must have achieved MU for at least 90 days by the end of the 2012 federal fiscal year (i.e., September 30, 2012). Stage 1 MU consists of 25 objectives and 41 quality measures. EPs must meet 20 of the 25 objectives, 3 core ...
Need an incentive to implement an electronic health records (EHR) system in your practice? How about $44,000? Thats the amount the federal government is making available to eligible physicians as part of its effort to speed up the adoption of health information technology throughout the U.S. In fact, under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act), part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, billions of federal stimulus dollars are flowing to medical practices throughout the U.S. to help physicians set up EHR systems.. ...
In the 20th Century, those records were written by hand and paper copies were generally stored on or offsite, unless required for a hospitalization, doctor visit or research. Sharing patient information with even one consultant or payer typically meant long hours at the copying machine to create thick envelopes filled with data that could take a substantial amount of time to sort; sharing only pertinent information with multiple parties was next to impossible.. Computers and the internet heralded the information age and electronic health records (EHR), which allowed the mass sharing and analysis of data in an instant and without cumbersome and costly paper. In 2004, President George W. Bush created the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), which now synchronizes HIT in the U.S. healthcare sector. Passed as part of the larger American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act created incentives to use health care ...
One legislative effort in particular is driving pharmacies technical prowess. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, a provision of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, includes a "meaningful use" mandate that provides financial incentives for healthcare providers who deploy an electronic health record and can prove they are using the platform in a meaningful fashion, such as recording medications via computerized physician order entry and electronically prescribing permissible medications.. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, charged with administering the program, split meaningful use into three stages, each with its own time frame and measurable objectives. The industry is currently in Stage 1 and recently received the final requirements for Stage 2. Subsequent stages will include different objectives that providers must achieve in order to receive a second round of funding. With objectives built on accomplishments from the ...

In this months issue of Pediatrics, we read a report on the state of clinical information technology adoption by pediatricians, based on an American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) survey from 2009.1 The lessons from this report are that pediatricians were not adopting technology as fast as their nonpediatrician counterparts and, just as concerning, they were using technology that is not supportive of basic child health functions.. Much has changed since 2009. The irresistible force in the electronic health record (EHR) market is the federal Meaningful Use (MU) program,2 a system of financial incentives funded through the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act intended to accelerate the adoption of EHRs. Those who work in EHR implementation know that the primary focus of EHR vendors and their customers during the past 2 years has been to modify their systems to meet the MU requirements. The work is not insignificant. A workgroup convened by the National Association of Childrens Hospitals ...

The Affordable Care Act is a once-in-a-generation change to the U.S. health system. It guarantees access to health care for all Americans, creates new incentives to change clinical practice to foster better coordination and quality, gives physicians more information to make them better clinicians and patients more information to make them more value-conscious consumers, and changes the payment system to reward value. The Act and the health information technology provisions in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act remove many barriers to delivering high-quality care, such as unnecessary administrative complexity, inaccessible clinical data, and insufficient access to primary care and allied health providers.. We hope that physicians will embrace the opportunities created by the Affordable Care Act that will enable them to provide better care for their patients and lead the U.S. health system in a more positive direction. To fully realize the benefits of the Affordable Care Act for their ...

We quantify the fiscal multipliers in response to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. We extend the benchmark Smets-Wouters (2007) New Keynesian model, allowing for credit-constrained households, the zero lower bound, government capital and distortionary taxation. The posterior yields modestly positive short-run multipliers around 0.52 and modestly negative long-run multipliers around -0.42. The multiplier is sensitive to the fraction of transfers given to credit-constrained households, the duration of the zero lower bound and the capital. The stimulus results in negative welfare effects for unconstrained agents. The constrained agents gain, if they discount the future substantially ...

Despite CHIPs accomplishments, the program still struggles to meet two critical challenges: ensuring that millions of eligible low-income children actually have coverage, and sustaining funding to support coverage for all eligible children during economic downturns. Nearly 3 in 4 children who were eligible for Medicaid or CHIP in 2005 were not enrolled in either program, a problem that has been attributed to both inadequate outreach and poor retention. Parents confusion about CHIP income eligibility thresholds in the state of Oregon produced what one researcher called a "gray zone" of uncertain insurance coverage that was associated with more unmet care needs. In addition, adequate state financing of CHIP is less assured during times of greatest need, as state tax revenues decline when more parents are unemployed and more children become eligible for public insurance. The end of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act-enhanced Medicaid federal matching percentage (FMAP) rates in June 2011 ...

The beleaguered IT industry is salivating as the US Congress has taken one more step towards putting a massive stimulus package together that will, among other things, put tens of billions of dollars of borrowed money into the industrys coffers.. David Obey, Democratic chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, introduced a stimulus package proposal yesterday that closely tracks many of the suggestions that incoming President Barack Obama has made to goose the American economy. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009 starts off by reminding us that the country has lost more than 2 million jobs in the last four months and adds that employers in the United States are expected to cut another 3 to 5 million jobs in 2009.. To that end, the stimulus package being proposed by the House has $275bn in tax cuts and $550bn in investments that House members believe could create or save somewhere between 3 and 4 million jobs across the US economy. That $825bn ticket exceeds $700bn ...

Since the new activities authorized by GLB can be exercised only by a subset of bank holding companies (BHCs)--to be called financial holding companies (FHCs)--the definition of this subset is a critical starting point. On this subject the legislation is quite explicit: To be an FHC, each subsidiary bank must be well-capitalized, be well-managed, and have a Consumer Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating of at least satisfactory. The Board recently announced the certification process--perhaps more accurately, the self-certification process--that BHCs must use. This process permits any BHC--including foreign BHCs whose banking presence in the United States is solely through subsidiary banks--that meets the statutory qualifications I just mentioned to file certifications immediately. The Board will check the CRA component of these companies positions as promptly as possible so that qualifying companies may begin as early as March 13 to affiliate with, acquire, or establish a nonbank financial institution ...

Recently, I was contacted by a friend who was unhappy about having been offered the position of Community Reinvestment Act officer at her bank.. I had just completed three years as the CRA officer for a multistate bank holding company headquartered in Cincinnati. The experience was the most enjoyable and rewarding of my professional career (which also includes 10 years in the finance division at the Procter & Gamble Co. and banking assignments in cash management and demand deposit services).. Therefore, I was surprised by her disappointment, and asked for an explanation.. In a Rut. She explained that in her city the CRA officers for all of the major banks were African-American.. In addition, some of those persons had held those positions for more than three years, and none of them had experienced any upward mobility. From all appearances, they were in a rut.. In short, she believed that CRA was the place where African-American bankers went to die.. She had spent five years in retail banking and ...

In 2009, the American Law on Rehabilitation and Reinvestment included provisions for creating incentives for the adoption and meaningful use of information health information technology (HIT). ARRA strengthens standards to maintain the confidentiality and security of health information. ARRA provided grants to help state and local governments, as well as health care providers, in their efforts to implement and use HIT. The CMS also provided incentives within the ARRA to encourage hospitals and health care workers eligible for assistance to become "meaningful users" of certified EHRs. The definition of "meaningful use" was developed by the HHS Secretary through formal rulemaking procedures, providing an opportunity for the participation of the public and professionals. Appropriate use targets are likely to continue to be specified, but to outline the basic requirements that should be included in each EHR. By adopting these recommendations, users will be eligible for federal incentive payments and ...

(b) (1) U.S. persons seeking to avail themselves of this authorization must ...
Additionally, the private sector has already developed compelling models for utilizing health information technology. Major health systems like the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic all have adopted state-of-the-art health IT systems-without federal involvement. Private enterprises are leading the way in developing completely innovative approaches to health IT. Some are even exploring the development of open software for innovators to write electronic health record applications. Such an "open source" model of current business practices. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the use of health information technology was already projected to be widespread by the end of the decade - even without the adoption of the HITECH Act. CBO projected that, without the HITECH Act, two-thirds of physicians, approximately half of hospitals, and at least one in five critical access hospitals would still be robustly using health IT by the end of the decade. Some reports have suggested ...
WASHINGTON, DC - More than 170 public health organizations issued a letter today to Congressional Conferees urging them to maintain the House-passed level of funding for prevention and wellness programs in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. The final U.S. Senate version of the bill removed all funding for these programs.. The funding in the House stimulus could directly save or create more than 20,000 public health jobs. As states, local governments, and communities are hit with economic hard times, they have already laid off more than 11,000 public health workers and left over 10,000 jobs vacant, and at least as many layoffs are expected in the coming year. In addition, by funding the expansion of targeted, effective community-based disease prevention programs, additional new jobs will be created directly in the communities they are serving. The funding would support existing programs, where mechanisms are in place to get the money out quickly so it can have an immediate impact ...

While just 10 years ago the health system largely relied on paper, today nearly all hospitals and three-fourths of office-based physicians are using certified electronic health records (EHRs), in part, as a result of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009.1 Moreover, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more than 90% of Americans now have health insurance, meaning we now have the opportunity to have a clinical record of our care experience that can support longitudinal follow-up and improved population-level surveillance.2 Looking forward, we can clearly envision a health care landscape where data are abundant and flowing and used to guide care delivery decisions-a learning health system described in our Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap.3 Data and analytics have historically been the backbone of public health-used to identify and track epidemics, make causal inferences, and direct resources to protect the health of the most vulnerable members of ...

Particulate Matter Aerosols and Childhood Asthma: Researchers at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey received supplemental ARRA-funds to accelerate the rate of recruitment of study subjects in an ongoing pilot study of indoor air pollution and childhood asthma using a Pre-Toddler Inhalable Particulate Environmental Robotic (PIPER) Sampler. As a result of the ARRA funding, additional personnel were engaged to assist with the field sampling of the homes and construct an additional PIPER. This new sampler can now be used in a larger study to validate preliminary findings, which suggest that PIPER may provide an alternative and more precise method for assessing young childrens exposures to a variety of particulate matter aerosols. 5 ...

PH is an irreversible, malignant elevation of pulmonary vascular pressures that causes death due to failure of the right side of the heart. Although idiopathic pulmonary hypertension is considered a rare disease, its true epidemiology is being called into question because of an increasing awareness that PH may occur in the setting of more prevalent respiratory diseases such as COPD, that it can develop in systemic diseases such as sickle cell anemia, and that right-heart dysfunction may actually occur earlier in the disease pathogenesis than previously recognized. The annual number of hospitalizations attributable to PH in the United States rose significantly from 1980 to 2000, especially for women, and worldwide estimates of all-cause PH are increasing. ...
The original article can be found in: BVI News Online By Robert Jones Business and government leaders are struggling to maintain and rein in rising healthcare premiums and cost which reduce opportunities for reinvestment and offset wage increases for their employees.. According to the Center for Diseases Control, chronic disease in the USA sucks up 75% of healthcare dollars.. Business and healthcare communities have a shared responsibility to work with their workforces and encourage them to be healthy.. However each individual needs to take personal responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. The health care and business communities can provide information and incentives but the ultimate responsibility lies with each of us. The saying you can lead a horse to the water but you cant make him drink is appropriate here.. But in the end leaders must make difficult judgments and decisions on how best to protect and preserve the society in which we live.. Chronic diseases such as heart disease, ...
But fast delivery - everything from Primes two-day service to one-day or one-hour options, grocery delivery and delivery for third-party sellers - doesnt come cheap. In the April-June quarter, for instance, Amazon spent $3.88 billion on its distribution network, or what it calls "fulfillment," up 35 percent from the prior year. The company spent $13.41 billion on fulfillment in all of 2015, up 25 percent from the prior year - and fully 13 percent of its $104.8 billion in total operating expenses.. "Costs to fulfill products is one of their largest expenses, and theyre always trying to figure out how to manage it better," said R.W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian. "In the long term, creating more infrastructure for transportation and delivery will help drive more efficiency, but it adds to costs in the near term.". Such heavy investment is a big part of what keeps Amazons profit margins low relative to other big retailers. Thats intentional; the reinvestment has let Amazon open up new ...
So the tinkerers cant do the math, and the boffins cant tinker. To break that logjam we need an Einstein of engineering. He would be part hacker, part statistician: a special blend of mathematical genius, programmer, and tinkerer.. And hopefully a businessman too.. Unique among technologies, robotics faces an insidious competition: live human beings. Almost every other revolutionary technology - steam engines, air travel, telephones, computers - accelerated crazily as it became better and better at doing what no human being could do, so even the earliest prototypes offered commercial benefits and attracted customers, reinvestment, and iterative improvement. The earliest trains, while expensive, nevertheless moved faster than horses: and that was enough to unleash the investment. But robotic brainpower is different, because it competes with human brainpower; the "robotish-ness" is precisely what humans are better at. The dumbest human still sees, hears, and grasps better than the most expensive ...

The move is expected to have a big impact on the share prices of some medium-seized and larger British companies.. Brown said this consultation would focus on the a new relief for corporate capital gains to facilitate the progress of restructuring and reinvestment, helping business to take advantage of emerging global opportunities.. This is another essential step towards a more modern, more flexible and efficient tax system that will provide the stability that business needs to invest for the future.. The document makes it plain that the government is committed to keeping taxes on business as low as possible and explains how a capital gains exemption for companies substantial shareholdings might work if introduced as part of the UK tax system.. It also explains how a parallel exemption for dividends might work, but sets out connected problems and concludes that a credit approach may be better.. But the government does not plan to restrict interest deductibility as part of the capital gains ...
This article takes a look at the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, which resulted in some significant changes to privacy and security regulations which were outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as well as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The ARRA imposes substantial modifications in four main areas: 1) HIPAA statutory requirements; 2) Increased enforcement of HIPAA; 3) Provisions to address health information held by entities not covered by HIPAA; and 4) Other changes including administrative changes, studies, reports and educational initiatives. This article takes a look at the provisions for entities that are not currently covered by HIPAA, as well as other miscellaneous changes made by the [...] ...

WASHINGTON- The federal economic stimulus package will provide $621 million to build a new military hospital at Fort Hood, Texas, President Barack Obama said today. Obama announced that $621 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment funds will be allocated to the new hospital, which is to serve about 55,000 soldiers, 67,000 military families and about 52,000 military retirees.. "This is the kind of critical investment we must make to support our brave soldiers and veterans who have sacrificed so much for us," Obama said in a White House statement.. Obamas announcement of a new hospital was met with jubilation at Fort Hood, which has deployed the largest number of troops to Iraq and Afghanistan and has outgrown its Vietnam-era Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center.. "Let the construction begin!" exclaimed Army Col. Casper P. Jones III, the hospital commander, upon hearing of the presidents announcement.. ...
OBJECTIVE: To update the definitions and measures for the Nursing Management Minimum Data Set (NMMDS). BACKGROUND: Meaningful use of electronic health records includes reuse of the data for quality improvement. Nursing management data are essential to explain variances in outcomes. The NMMDS is a research-based minimum set of essential standardized management data useful to support nursing management and administrative decisions for quality improvement. METHODS: The NMMDS data elements, definitions, and measures were updated and normalized to current national standards and mapped to LOINC (Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes), a federally recognized standardized data set for public dissemination. RESULTS: The first 3 NMMDS data elements were updated, mapped to LOINC, and publicly disseminated. CONCLUSIONS: Widespread use of the NMMDS could reduce administrative burden and enhance the meaningful use of healthcare data by ensuring that nursing relevant contextual data are available to improve
Comparative Effectiveness Research is an international, peer reviewed, open access journal that strives to cover this emerging field. Comparative effectiveness research (CER) is a PICOT (Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, Time) question-driven, systematic process of investigation; it utilizes the well-characterized design of research synthesis, validated methodology for assessing the evidence and data analysis, which includes acceptable sampling and meta-analysis. CER assembles the best available evidence for ensuring effectiveness-focused, patient-centered and evidence-based medicine, dentistry, nursing and allied disciplines. CER is the critical and timely process of translational healthcare; it evinces the most reliable evidence to compare the advantages, disadvantages and expenditure for an intervention with other available options for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of a clinical condition. CER amalgamates patients, clinicians, caregivers and other stakeholders to

Andrew Hicks. Guest post by James D. Brown, CTO, StillSecure and Andrew Hicks, Director, Healthcare Practice Lead, Coalfire. In January, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced updates to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security rules. These new rules will took effect on March 26 and business associates have until September 23, 2013, to reach compliance. Under HIPAA, a business associate is defined as a person or entity that performs certain functions or activities that involve the use or disclosure of electronic protected health information (ePHI) on behalf of, or provides services to, a covered entity. So what exactly do these new rules mean for our partners and clients?. First, it is important to note that the new rules are really just formalizing and strengthening many of the changes that were announced in the 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act), which clearly defines when ...
Abstract (from Health Affairs): Medicines current evidence base is insufficient for many of the decisions made daily by clinicians, patients, purchasers, and policy makers. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) represents an effort by the US government to address this shortcoming by funding comparative effectiveness research (CER). Prioritizing that research will be a critical first step. To better understand components of an optimal process, NPC reviewed the literature and conducted interviews regarding the prioritization efforts of leading public and private health organizations in the United States and abroad. From this review, NPC proposes a framework for prioritization, poses and answers key questions, and makes recommendations regarding application of that framework. NPC also recommends that during the priority-setting process, there should be transparent conversations among those who make decisions about the priorities and the public.. ...
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates criminal activity for HHS. The special agents who work for OIG have the same title series "1811", training and authority as other federal criminal investigators, such as the FBI, ATF, DEA and Secret Service. However, OIG Special Agents have special skills in investigating white collar crime related to Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse. Organized crime has dominated the criminal activity relative to this type of fraud.. HHS-OIG investigates tens of millions of dollars in Medicare fraud each year. In addition, OIG will continue its coverage of all 50 states and the District of Columbia by its multi-agency task forces (PSOC Task Forces) that identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals who willfully avoid payment of their child support obligations under the Child Support Recovery Act.. HHS-OIG agents also provide protective services to the Secretary of HHS, and other department executives as necessary.. In 2002, the department released ...
