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 ...
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 ...

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 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 ...

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.

"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.

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 ...

President Obama has said, "It is simply unacceptable for individuals, children, families, and our nations veterans to be faced with homelessness in this country.". On February 17, 2009, he signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a nearly $800 billion stimulus package of temporary programs aimed to alleviate the recessions negative effects. The package included a three-year, $1.5 billion program called the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP).. Administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HPRP targeted two populations: people who without assistance were at risk of losing their current housing (homelessness prevention), and people experiencing homelessness who needed assistance to obtain and then retain housing (rapid re-housing).. Communities could use HPRP funding for financial assistance, including rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, moving costs, or hotel/motel vouchers, and for housing ...
The Department of Physiology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis has been ranked third out of 186 physiology departments in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico by the American Physiological Society..

With 19 full-time faculty members and a budget of more than $16 million, UTHSCs faculty generates an average of $586,499 per member.. Dr. Gabor Tigyi, chair of the UTHSC Department of Physiology, said he believes the higher ranking is the result of the faculty attracting seven new grant awards from the National Institutes of Health. In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act infused the NIH with a one-time grant of approximately $8 billion to fuel exceptional scientific endeavors aimed at improving the length and quality of life of U.S. citizens.. The department ...
On Nov. 1, when temporary funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expires, SNAP benefits will be cut immediately for every SNAP recipient. The current farm bill includes devastating cuts to SNAP of $20.5 billion over 10 years. If those cuts occur, more than 38,000 people in Minnesota, a great majority of them senior citizens, will lose SNAP benefits entirely.. Millions of Americans continue to struggle through this painfully slow recovery. Working-poor families and 50,000 Minnesota seniors rely on SNAP to help meet their nutritional needs and spare them the impossible choice between buying food and paying for other necessities like housing or health care. SNAP is nothing short of a lifeline.. Most Minnesotans expect their representatives in Congress to protect a vital program like SNAP. Local charities serving the hungry need SNAP to remain robust. Our emergency food providers do not have the capacity to make up meals lost to a diminished SNAP program.. Advocates for ...

On Tuesday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report on the estimated impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (a.k.a.-Obamas $787 billion fiscal stimulus) The report provides conclusive evidence that the stimulus did exactly what it was designed to do and helped to avert another Great Depression. Heres a summary: It raised real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) by between 1.7 per cent and 4.5 per cent;. Lowered the unemployment rate by between 0.7 percentage points and 1.8 percentage points;. Increased the number of people employed by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million; Increased the number of full-time-equivalent jobs by 2.0 million to 4.8 million compared with what would have occurred otherwise.. Naturally, the Republican leadership is in a frenzy over the report and trying desperately to underplay its conclusions. Thats why House minority leader John Boehner launched a counterattack earlier this week claiming that the stimulus has ...
