Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER). Mitochondria are believed to have arisen from aerobic bacteria that established a symbiotic relationship with primitive protoeukaryotes. (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)

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)

For its Recovery Act Signature Project, NHGRI selected the development of technologies that can sequence a human genome for $1,000 or less. NHGRI leadership thinks that truly inexpensive genomic sequencing will revolutionize health and medicine, and Recovery Act funding will accelerate the Institutes research program in this area.. The success of the Human Genome Project was made possible by significant reductions in DNA sequencing costs that were fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as a result of NHGRI funding. To continue its efforts to make sequencing a routine tool in both research and medicine, NHGRI subsequently launched two programs, in 2004, to further accelerate the development of sequencing technologies and reduce the cost of sequencing. The goal of the first program - to produce high-quality sequence of the amount of DNA found in a human genome for $100,000 - has already been achieved. Ultimately, NHGRIs vision is to cut the cost of ...

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 ...

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.

I spent the last few minutes of my doctors visit in early 2013 in silence, as my doctor clumsily typed away notes about my progress. He apologized before he started typing, complaining that he was being forced to transition from paper-based notes to a new computer-based system with which he was unfamiliar. This moment was awkward, but it represented an important trend in healthcare delivery improvement.. Electronic Health Records in the U.S.. In 2015, 84% of primary care physicians in the United States used electronic health records (EHRs). The U.S. trails countries like Australia and the United Kingdom in this respect, where EHR penetration levels among primary care physicians were 92% and 98%, respectively.[1] This discrepancy represents both a performance gap for the United States and an opportunity for continued innovation. The quality benefits of shifting to EHRs are well known; as a result, EHRs have been promoted by the Obama administration and a number of prestigious hospital systems, ...
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 ...
The process by which the Recovery Act produced positive economic activity is straightforward. The bursting of the housing bubble inflicted a huge negative shock on spending in the U.S. economy. As household wealth evaporated due to plummeting real estate prices, both households and businesses radically cut back their demand for goods and services and demand for new construction dried up.. The Recovery Act helped offset this decline in private-sector demand by boosting public sector purchasing. Many kinds of spending outlays (or tax cuts) could have fulfilled this shock-absorbing function in the very short-run. And indeed, the Recovery Act was a portfolio of various spending increases and tax cuts (a portfolio much more heavily weighted toward tax cuts than most observers realized).. The spending increases in the Recovery Act were extraordinarily well-targeted to boost economic growth and create jobs. The package included aid to state governments to prevent layoffs and cuts in service, both of ...
One legislative effort in particular is driving pharmacies technical prowess.

Health care is indisputably one of the most data-intensive industries in the U.S., yet modern dissemination and control of patient data consistently lags behind other industries such as banking, airlines, insurance and retail.[IMGCAP(1)]The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 attempts to rectify this, providing some $36 billion to promote the use of interoperable, certified health information technologies. The announcement last week by Vice President Joseph Biden and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that $1.2 billion in ARRA funding via two grant programs is an additional step in this direction. Historically, savings estimates from these moves have been the subject of wild speculation. Iron Mountain Inc., which provides information protection and storage services to one-third of the U.S. market (more than 2,000 hospitals in 43 states), takes a different view: Cost efficiencies ...
The report offers several policy recommendations to address these concerns, calling on Congress to modernize the Community Reinvestment Act to cover fintech lenders, and states to act quickly. The report outlines how states like California can enact state-level regulations, including requiring increased lending transparency through the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, as well as passing a state version of the Community Reinvestment Act. In Illinois, the most recent state to pass a state-level CRA, advocates partnered with legislators to advance a racial equity slate that included these crucial regulations for nonbank lenders. State and federal regulations need a drastic overhaul to keep up with these trends and avoid another financial crisis caused by predatory mortgage lending, said Debra Gore-Mann, President and CEO of The Greenlining Institute.

Consistent with the points we made throughout the drafting of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), ITTA members strongly believe that the $7.2 billion in broadband stimulus money should be focused on unserved parts of our country. Building out broadband to the unserved will do more to create jobs and open up new economic opportunity than diverting money to other purposes. Making broadband available everywhere will also facilitate other ARRA objectives, such as intelligent transportation systems, electronic medical health records and smart-grid technology. Unless ARRA’s limited funds are focused on bridging the gap between the broadband haves and have nots, ARRA could actually widen today’s digital divide. ARRA is an excellent start to close existing broadband gaps, but it is vitally important to ensure that funding is utilized as efficiently as possible to extend broadband’s reach as far as possible. Thus, connecting the ...

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 ...
In May 2011 NBC received an $86,000 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant through the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (RIOER) to coordinate and oversee the performance of the EETAs. As part of the grant award National Grid has agreed to fund 50% of the cost of each EETA. NBC, using the ARRA grant funds, will pay for the other half.. At the completion of the EETA process each WWTF will receive a Report which can be used to help implement identified Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs). EEMs are defined as improvements to a WWTF, including equipment and physical operating control systems which produce economically feasible reductions in energy use. EEMs include cost effective co-generation and use of renewable energy resources.. Each report summarizes the EEMs studied including a cost to install the measure and the energy savings in kilowatt hours or therms saved along with detailed engineering calculations and assumptions, cost breakdowns, and formulas showing where energy ...
COBRA continuing coverage is usually paid for by the covered individual. That includes both their share and the employers share (i.e., the entire premium). People can pick and choose which coverages to keep and who to cover (themselves or dependents), which could vary the cost.. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Congress is considering expanded COBRA options. A bill drafted by the House of Representatives proposes covering furloughed individuals in addition to those who were laid off. In its current form, the drafted legislation would also cover up to 100 percent of the premium. COBRA law currently allows up to 18 months of continuing coverage, and the proposed legislation could keep that time frame or adjust it. If approved, it would be significantly more than the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA was passed during the 2009 recession and covered 65 percent of COBRA premiums for up to 15 months.. ...

Specifically, Michaelis is investigating the role that a protein known as lamin A plays in the disease.. Michaelis investigations are among the more than 300 stimulus-funded research grants and supplements totaling more than $157.4 million that Johns Hopkins has garnered since Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (informally known by the acronym ARRA), bestowing the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation with $12.4 billion in extra money to underwrite research grants by September 2010. The stimulus package-which provided $550 billion in new spending, including the above grants-is part of the federal governments attempt to bring back a stumbling economy by doling out dollars for transportation projects, ...
The change will be retroactive to January 1, 2012, so workers whose employers implement this program will be able to receive tax benefits for any passes they purchased through the program last year. Unfortunately, the benefit expires December 31, 2013. This isnt the first time that the transit commuter benefit will expire while the parking benefit remains. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA 2009, also known as the stimulus) raised the transit commuter benefit from $120 to $230 per month, but that expired on December 31, 2011. The parking benefit remained at $230 per month.. The current surface transportation bill, MAP-21, signed into law on July 6, 2012, raised the transit commuter benefit a paltry $5 to $125 while raising the parking benefit to $240. The transit commuter benefit is now $240. The retroactive provision will benefit Metra riders who purchased passes that were greater than $125 each month in 2012, which included anyone who traveled between zones A (downtown) and E ...
These two grants laid the groundwork for investment from four additional awards. In October 2009, UW Medicine received a large-scale DNA sequencing project award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), made under the auspices of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The lions share, $25 million, has been used to launch the Northwest Genomics Center at UW Medicine. An additional $2 million grant from the states Life Sciences Discovery Fund is supporting the new centers infrastructure. Deborah A. Nickerson, professor of genome sciences and one of the centers principal investigators, says the grant recognizes UW Medicines expertise in genomics. Weve been working in the area of medical sequencing for quite some time, particularly in cardiovascular disease, says Nickerson.. The lions share, $25 million, has been used to launch the Northwest Genomics Center at UW Medicine. An additional $2 million grant from the states Life Sciences Discovery Fund is ...
As EPIs Elise Gould pointed out back in January, a key barrier to translating overall economic growth in recent decades into rapid poverty reduction has been the rise in income inequality. Were economic growth more broadly shared, the poverty rate would be much lower. Here we make the case that this rise in inequality has large policy fingerprints all over it. Todays data on income and poverty from the Census Bureau shows how a recent policy choice-specifically cutting back on unemployment insurance (UI) in recent years-has stalled poverty reduction.. Unemployment insurance is a key plank of the American social insurance system. During the ferocious period of job loss and historically high unemployment during and immediately after the Great Recession, policymakers responded by significantly expanding the duration of benefits, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) included boosts to the generosity of benefits as well. The result was that in 2009, UI benefits kept 3.3 million ...
Rob Pratt is considered one of the early thought leaders behind the smart grid. He manages Pacific Northwest National Laboratorys (PNNL) Smart Grid R&D program activities for the U.S. Department of Energy. Pratt leads a team that looks at communications architecture, advanced control technology and the combined engineering and economic aspects of a future grid. Pratt said he has seen a boom in smart grid progress over the past couple years. The amount of smart grid being installed as a result of ARRA [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009] is a profound opportunity we didnt see coming, Pratt said. Its really moved the ball along. The demo projects that started before that and continue are introducing smart grid technology to the masses. Utilities are surveying their customers to gather their thoughts and attitudes regarding power delivery and energy usage to better discover how to approach them regarding the smart grid. At present, about half the utilities in the United States are ...

U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand today announced that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will provide a total of $4,180,862 million in funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for biomedical research projects in Western New York. The Roswell Park Cancer Institute will receive $2,231,472 and The University at Buffalo will receive $1,949,390. The ARRA will provide a total of $64,826,308 for projects statewide, including $13,288,446 for those at institutions upstate.. This funding for biomedical research is a wise investment in the Western New York economy, said Schumer. Not only will these federal dollars help New York institutions tackle our biggest health issues, but we will be creating research and teaching positions in the region. I will continue to fight for funding to keep our states world-class schools and research facilities at the forefront of medicine.. It is critical that we invest in the life-saving research at our world class ...
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 [...] ...

In signing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act this week in Denver, President Barack Obama claimed that the law - which among other things will ramp up funding for renewable energy development - is laying the groundwork for new green energy economies that can create countless well-paying jobs.. This statement follows promises he made during his campaign for the presidency. Mr. Obama said, for example, that hed create as many as five million such jobs by investing over $150 billion over 10 years on wind, solar, biofuels and other renewable energy sources.. Hes also proposed a federal renewable portfolio standard that would require 25% of our electricity to come from clean sources - a mandate that would boost demand for windmills, solar farms, and other clean but expensive technologies (nuclear power, however, would be excluded). This transformed energy economy, Mr. Obama said at a campaign debate in Nashville, Tenn., last October, would be an engine of economic growth to rival the ...

PLEASE NOTE: Oregons CHIP is not part of Medicaid expansion so only Medicaid encounters are applicable to that portion of the calculation. However, the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) includes funding for both Medicaid and CHIP. Because providers cannot differentiate between the two funding streams, providers must reduce all OHP encounters by 4.4%. This is Oregons statewide rate of CHIP encounters (aka CHIP proxy). The CHIP proxy is calculated by taking the total OHP encounters for the selected 90-day period and mulitplying that number by .956 as shown below ...

Healthcare delivery now mandates shorter visits with higher documentation requirements, undermining the patient-provider interaction. Electronic health records (EHRs) have the potential to improve outcomes and quality of care in this pressured environment, and are endorsed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act as an important mechanism to support value-based healthcare. However, EHR systems were principally designed to support the transactional needs of administrators and billers, less so to nurture the relationship between patients and their providers. The purpose of this research is to identify ways to use EHRs to support clinical gastroenterologists and their patients while meeting the meaningful use requirements of the HITECH Act.. To improve clinic visit efficiency and meet criteria for meaningful use, investigators developed a patient-provider portal (P3) that systematically collects patient ...

In my continuing saga of researching imagings impact on Meaningful Use, I wanted input from those that might be directly affected by ARRA/Meaningful Use. I reached out to several state and private HIEs to get their perspective on imaging and the impact of ARRA/Meaningful Use.. Overall, I have to conclude that HIEs are not focused on imaging - except as it pertains to results. This may be a function of priorities, and it is hard to argue with a strategy that emphasizes formation of a platform that supports all results including lab, radiology, cardiology, etc. In the case of most imaging services, the report still represents the legal document, so imaging in support of the report seems to be the rule of thumb. Another key aspect of HIEs current efforts seems to be decision support. A prime example comes from Devore Culver, Executive Director of HealthInfoNet, a non-profit HIE in the State of Maine. As Culver explained, there is significant cost savings associated with being able to query a ...

Long-term Regulatory Agenda. The presentation also identifies two long-term regulatory goals to implement certain provisions of the HITECH Act.
