Examining Hepatitis C Treatment Access: What Nurses Need to Know

WED AUG 12 2015

1:00–2:00 p.m. (EDT)

The development and approval of direct acting antiretrovirals for Hepatitis C is rapidly changing the paradigm of hepatitis diagnosis, treatment and cure for the millions of Americans who suffer from HCV. However, the high cost of treatment has led many Medicaid programs across the country to implement treatment access restrictions, including in some instances, restricting the ability of APRNs to prescribe. The restrictions unfairly limit access and are not based on clinical evidence.

Join the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School, the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable and Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) to learn about current restrictions on access to sofosbuvir (Sovaldi), through a nationwide study and report of Medicaid policies for the treatment of hepatitis C virus.The report was developed by the Center for Health Law & Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School with support from the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable. For more information, go to www.chlpi.org.

Learn how you can utilize this information to expand access to the HCV cure in your state from the following expert presenters: Ryan Clary, Executive Director, National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable; Robert Greenwald, Director, Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation; Harvard Law School and Carole Treston, Chief Nursing Officer, ANAC.

Implementing Self-Directed Care for Adults with Serious Mental Illness

FRI MAY 29 2015

1:00-3:30 p.m. (EDT)

Self-Directed Care (SDC) provides adults diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness the opportunity to assess their own needs, to determine how and by whom those needs should be met, and to manage the funds to purchase those services. In this way the individual assumes control of their own path to recovery. As people take control of their lives and well-being they build their capacity as contributing members of society.  The self-determination movement and self-directed care programs are shifting the balance of control to the individual and creating a new paradigm for behavioral health services. SAMHSA has included self-directed care as a component of recovery. In this webinar we will explore the successes and challenges of implementing self-directed care as a peer-run program.  Expert panelists will discuss various models of peer-run SDC programs and discuss funding options available for SDC.

Transitioning from ICD-9 to ICD-10: Is Your Organization Prepared?

THU MAY 28 2015

3:00-4:30 p.m. (EDT)

On October 1, 2015, the US health care delivery system will go through a monumental transformation -- transitioning from ICD-9 codes to ICD-10 codes. ICD-10 codes will more accurately describe diagnosis and symptoms, as well as inpatient procedures. The ICD-10 implementation will affect your practice operations -- front desk registration, referrals, fee schedules, super bills and software upgrades are just a few of the workflows and tasks that will have to be re-evaluated and revamped in order to minimize interruption of cash flow. Lack of preparation could be damaging to your practice if the new codes are not reported on health claims. If your practice has not begun the activities necessary for this transition, or you need guidance and information to help you get to the next steps, then this session is for you.
