Vitamins and Supplements – Can You Dispute The Finding?

Findings on Vitamins and Supplements?

Are you one of those who debunks Dr. Linus Pauling and his Vitamin C theories?

The problem with that is that there is actually much documented evidence to show that Vitamin C really does help prevent and EVEN CURE many of our major diseases.
Another problem with it is that most of his detractors have two less Nobel prizes than Dr Pauling.

Can Abortion Be Limited By Regulating Medical Practice?

Sandra Noble No Comments

Can Abortion Be Limited By Regulating Medical Practice - abortion

Healthcare providers are already burdened with compliance to rules, regulations and legislation. Doctors, especially in the small / solo medical practice, are struggling to comply and stay afloat financially.

  • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) has been around for a while.
  • The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health / HITECH Act portion of the Stimulus Bill of 2009 is forcing hospitals and physician practices to invest in electronic medical record systems
  • CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) is preparing for stage 3 of meaningful use compliance attestations.
  • And now it looks like the ICD-10 transition will finally become a reality – in less than 3 months!

Despite the fact that electronic medical records / electronic health records (EMR / EHR) software is being implemented, many regulations mean more paperwork and more administrivia.

But these days Abortion

is a HOT topic.

Not for the usual reasons, as politicians are jumping into the presidential race. But it’s more about Planned Parenthood and the explosive, repulsive video which indicates that Planned Parenthood modifying the abortion procedure so they can sell fetal tissue.

So timing of the webinar on the use of medical practice regulation to limit access to abortion, is impeccable. It takes place July 27, 2015 at 9 PM EST. You can register at National Physicians Alliance

This webinar was advertised before the planned parenthood news flash and video made the headlines. But it certainly reinvigorated the conversation about abortion.

Do You Have Prescription Drugs Laying Around Your House?

Health Care Provider Public Service Announcement…

One of the reasons for safety caps on

Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

The health care legislation currently in the news is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare“. This health care reform act has an individual health care insurance mandate and an employer mandate, but it doesn’t mandate an EMR softare solution.

However, any health care provider who wants to participate in the Obamacare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), will need Electronic Medical Records to document the clinical aspects of the patient encounter and track encounters to ensure the provider gets credit for contributing to ACO objectives.

Electronic Medical Records Mandate

But the health care legislation that initially mandated the Electronic Health Record (EHR) / Electronic Medical Records (EMR) was the HITECH Act of 2009 (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act). Healthcare providers which accepting Medicare and Medicaid should already be aware of the 2014 deadline for EHR / EMR technology. Medical providers submitting Medicare claims, will begin getting zapped with penalties in 2015.

Is Health Care Legislation The Only Reason For Electronic Medical Records?

All Health Care Providers

Ignoring the Electronic Health Record mandate is not an option, even if you don’t send claims to CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) for reimbursement. Some great reasons below…

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Sandra Noble No Comments

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Alert: webinar starting now! http://goo.gl/DHQM5S

Is Obamacare Shutdown In The Future For Your Medical Practice?

Today we are still in the midst of the Obamacare shutdown.
Yes, Obamacare is the law of the land. And the sign up for Obamacare health plan via the health insurance exchanges has started. So that’s not what’s shut down.

Government Shutdown
Congress and the Obama administration are at an impasse – over Obamacare. So Congress refused to pass funding bills to fund the federal government unless Obamacare is defunded, delayed or derailed. Hence we have a partial shutdown of the federal government. This is what I’m calling the Obamacare shutdown.

Personal Shutdown
When people are overwhelmed and have too much to do, their response is to simply shut down. Psychiatry, psychology and healthcare providers are skilled at dealing with the personal shutdown patients.

Medical Practice Shutdown
Current issues in medical office management:

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) / Affordable Care Act (ACA) / Obamacare
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health / HITECH Act
Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements
Electronic Health Records / Electronic Medical Records
Accountable Care Organization (ACO)
Clinical Quality Measures
Ability to handle surge in new paitents from Obamacare

All are rules, regulations and reporting requirements are reasons to consider shutting your medical practice down. Many physicians who are near retirement age are choosing to ignore health information technology and other changes.

Will Immigration Bill Mean A Healthier Prognosis For Obamacare?

Will Immigration Bill Mean A Healthier Prognosis For Obamacare?

Now that some of the natural disasters have abated, politicians, activists and the US Congress can focus on fighting about the Immigration Bill and illegal immigration. Although there are already laws on the books, the illegal immigrant problems in the United States won’t be resolved without yet another immigration law.

Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act  (S.744) is the official name of the immigration bill before the Senate.

Both the current immigration reform bill and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA / Obamacare) are highly controversial. And, Obamacare and immigration reform have hundreds of pages to explain the details of the legislation.

The United States immigration debate is about illegal immigration. But the Immigration Reform Bill has a section that deals with physicians who study in the United States.

Buried in the immigration bill are provisions that should benefit rural and under served patients and communities.

The Immigration Bill – Helping The Physician Shortage

June 18, 2013 ·

Immigration reform and health care reform both receive a
great deal of press. Living in Texas, I follow the immigration debate closely. As a border state, Texas has almost 1.4 million unauthorized immigrant adults, with two-thirds of those living with American born, citizen children. More than half, 59%, of those adults and 36% of their children have no health insurance. The coverage and care of this population is one side of the immigration debate.

Another side of equal concern is the use of foreign born, American trained physicians (FBAT), in America. Unless you have been hiding in a closet, you know that we face a physician shortage. A viable source to help in this area are physicians born in other countries who attend medical school abroad, but come to the US for residency and fellowship training. Currently we have in place a program called the Conrad 30, which helps states place these FBAT physicians in rural areas where American born, American trained (ABAT) physicians are harder to place.

Conrad 30, J-1, and H-1B candidates and the process for sponsoring and hiring one of these candidates can be complicated and expensive.
Many facilities abandon the idea before they even start when they hear some of the complexities involved.

Given our involvement in Primary Care, I believed I was aware of the legislation impacting our world, but I was surprised to read an article today stating that the immigration reform bill currently under debate will affect both these areas of concern. Although it is unlikely that the bill will ever pass in its current form, tucked away in the middle of the bill is a section that addresses the hiring of FBAT physicians and the Conrad 30 program. Carl Shusterman, an immigration attorney from LA, is very excited about the physician part of the bill. He stated that the Conrad 30 is a good program but,  “like any program there are a bunch of flaws that we have been trying to correct for 20 years and this bill corrects most of them.”

This part of the bill is not very controversial and will likely remain untouched as the haggling continues, and will hopefully make the hiring of FBAT physicians easier. In the article Immigration Bill Lowers Hurdle for Foreign Born Docs , John Commins, does a great job summarizing the effects of Immigration S.744.

Will Immigration Reform Bill Mean A Healthier Prognosis For Obamacare physician shortage?

Easing the restrictions on the placement of FBAT candidates
won’t solve the physician shortage, but every little bit helps. Now, here is
where I need to choose my words carefully. We talk to many facilities, even in very rural communities, who are unwilling to consider these candidates. Their open positions remain open for well over nine months, yet they remain committed
to hiring an ABAT physician. They offer a variety of potentially valid
objections including, they will only stay for as long as their J-1 status
allows, the sponsorship process is too complicated, they won’t be accepted by the patients, and they are not trained as well as ABAT candidates.

Our goal is to help our clients provide medical care to patients who are not being seen and to bring revenue to a facility that needs a provider. FBAT candidates have completed the same residency and fellowship training as any ABAT candidate and are well qualified. Most are Board Eligible
or Certified. If they are welcomed into the community, in most cases, they
become involved and often stay. On the other hand, even if they do not, the facility has seen revenue and patients for three years that they would have missed without the provider. And as far as the patients not accepting them, it does not take long, when there is a need, for patients to find that an FBAT physician trained in Primary Care is a compassionate provider, and that
overcomes most objections.

When our clients open their parameters to allow us to speak
with FBAT candidates, they see a pipeline that they were previously missing. Improving the legislation, making it easier for hospitals and states to navigate Conrad 30, will eliminate one log jam. Educating administrators and consumers about the benefits of FBAT candidates can eliminate another.

Maybe we will get lucky and they will pass some form of Immigration S.744 and they won’t tinker with that section in the middle about physicians. Well, we can hope.

Let’s make a plan. Let’s go from chaos to calm. Let’s get things inline. The Inline Group.

The Immigration Bill – Helping The Physician Shortage

The Conrad Murray trail and guilty verdict put a dark smear on the profession of doctors and health care providers. But the Conrad State 30 program is a bright spot. Revisions in the Immigration Reform Bill relative to the Conrad 30 program are expected to survive all the political wrangling.

To be successful, the Affordable Care Act (Act) requires an adequate supply of doctors. Obamacare is expected to increase the severity of the physician shortage in the U.S.

On the other hand, the Conrad 30 provisions of the Immigration Bill may stop the hemorrhaging.
