Social Media Tips for Medical Practices: A How-To Guide

The benefits of using social media in a medical practice are becoming increasingly recognized, which makes the pressure to get involved even greater. As medical practices become more and more sophisticated at using social media for knowledge sharing, marketing, and other forms of communication, those who fail to participate will fall behind. These social media tips for medical practices can help you get started.

    Cal INDEX and Inland Empire HIE will merge to form California’s largest health information exchange; former White House technology advisor named CEO

    Statewide nonprofit health information exchange will include more than 16 million health information records and participation from 150 provider partners

    SAN FRANCISCO (January 10, 2017) --- The California Integrated Data Exchange (Cal INDEX) and Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (IEHIE) today announced a planned merger that will create one of the nation’s most comprehensive nonprofit health information exchanges (HIEs).

    Claudia Williams, former White House technology senior advisor, will lead the new organization as CEO, effective February 1, 2017. The merger, subject to regulatory approvals, is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017 and will operate as a tax-exempt public benefit corporation under a new name.

    The new HIE will combine the 11.7 million claims records from Cal INDEX founding members Blue Shield of California and Anthem Blue Cross with the 5 million clinical patient records of IEHIE and its 150 participating partners. HIEs help improve the quality of the patient experience, support collaboration and coordination and improve efficiencies by making it easier for doctors, hospitals and other care providers to securely review, analyze and share medical information across the healthcare system.

    “The creation of this new statewide health information exchange by IEHIE and Cal INDEX is an important milestone in transforming California’s healthcare system into a coordinated system that delivers higher quality and more efficient care to all Californians,” said Dr. Bradley Gilbert, Chairman of the IEHIE Board of Directors. Mark Savage, Chairman of the Cal INDEX Board of Directors and director of health information technology policy and programs for the National Partnership for Women & Families, added: “Claudia is the ideal candidate to lead this new entity. She is a strategic and transformational leader with national experience managing and scaling health information exchanges. With Claudia, California’s statewide HIE gets the rare combination of breadth and depth.”

    Williams brings more than 25 years of healthcare technology experience to the role, most recently as senior advisor for Health Innovation and Technology in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Prior to the White House, Williams was the Director of HIE for the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. She earned an M.S. in health policy and management from the Harvard School of Public Health and a B.A. in political science from Duke University.

    “Claudia’s track record of developing strategic partnerships with technology, provider, consumer and health plan leaders will be invaluable as Cal INDEX and Inland Empire HIE add new partners and bring value to providers and patients throughout the state,” said Dr. Gilbert.

    “I’m thrilled by the opportunity to lead the new organization and collaborate with our partners to improve patient care for all Californians,” Williams said. “Our goal is to deliver compelling products and services that support California’s hospitals, providers and patients in their efforts to improve care coordination, reduce inefficiencies, address gaps in care and enhance patient experience.”

    About Cal INDEX
    Cal INDEX is an independent, nonprofit organization that is developing a statewide HIE. This uniquely comprehensive collection of electronic patient records includes clinical data from healthcare providers and health insurers combined into a single longitudinal patient record. Cal INDEX’s technology platform provides hospitals and physicians with real-time access to a patient’s vital healthcare information. This innovation will improve the quality of patient care, improve the efficiency of delivering and coordinating care, and reduce the cost of healthcare services. Cal INDEX was founded through seed funding from Blue Shield of California and Anthem Blue Cross. For more information, visit www.calindex.org

    About Inland Empire HIE
    IEHIE’s mission and vision is to achieve continuity of care in the Inland Empire and other communities by aligning providers and patients to securely exchange health information in a trusted and timely manner. The Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (San Bernardino & Riverside) works with other California county hospitals, medical centers, medical groups, clinics, IPAs, physician practices, health plans, public health and other healthcare providers to bring needed technology to participants, allowing them to share electronic patient health records throughout the state. IEHIE gives healthcare providers immediate access to state-of-the-art electronic patient health data. It allows doctors, clinics, hospitals and other healthcare providers to electronically access medical records, which results in timely, secure and improved quality of healthcare for the patients in the community.

    Riverside County Public Health Ready For Meaningful Use Stage 2

    Download Letter

    Dear Health Care Provider:

    The County of Riverside Department of Public Health (DOPH) is committed to the improvement of our health information systems and to ensuring our local providers and medical facilities attain meaningful use certification as defined by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. As part of this process, this letter is to inform you that DOPH is declaring readiness for Meaningful Use Stage 2 (hereafter MUS2). Incentive payments you may receive or will receive under meaningful use may be affected if you or your facility is not able to meet the requirements for MUS2, including the public health integration objectives. In addition, your Medicare payments may be adversely adjusted in 2015 if you are not a meaningful user of electronic health record (EHR) technology, which include MUS2 requirements.

    DOPH has partnered with the Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (IEHIE) to facilitate health care facilities’ compliance with the public health integration requirements of MUS2. DOPH believes that IEHIE is a vital part of improving coordinated care in the Inland Empire and encourages all health care facilities to join. The use of the IEHIE is not required to attain MUS2 requirements, but is strongly encouraged, and may greatly reduce the implementation cost and effort required for your facility to be compliant with MUS2. For more information on joining the IEHIE, please visit www.iehie.org

    MUS2 has five public health objectives, three of which in the County of Riverside rest with DOPH. Eligible professionals (EPs) must meet the core public health objective of immunization reporting, and must meet three of six “menu set” requirements, two of which are public health objectives. Critical access hospitals (CAHs) must meet three core public health objectives, namely immunization reporting, reportable lab results/electronic lab reporting, and syndromic surveillance. Even if the IEHIE transmits this information on your behalf, you alone are responsible for ensuring the objectives are met. Please note that if your facility covers or operates in multiple jurisdictions, you may be responsible for different implementation requirements in jurisdictions outside of the County of Riverside. The five objectives are implemented for the County of Riverside as follows:

    1.  Electronic immunization reporting is to be done to the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), Region 8. Your facility or medical office is responsible for the registration and onboarding process with CAIR if you are not already registered. You may submit this information yourself from your own EHR system; contact the CAIR Gateway for technical requirements. DOPH cannot offer technical support for implementation. If you are a “live” member of the IEHIE, this information is submitted to CAIR for you; self-registration is still required. Registration for all submitters, including IEHIE members, is through the CDPH Health Information Exchange Portal. 

    This objective is a Stage 2 core requirement for both EPs and CAHs. For more information, visit http://cairweb.org/cair-regions/ 

    2.  Electronic laboratory reporting of reportable results is to be done to the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE-ELR). Your facility is responsible for the registration and onboarding process with CalREDIE-ELR if you are not already registered. You may submit this information yourself from your own ELR system; contact CalREDIE for technical requirements. This process is distinct from the CalREDIE Provider Portal. Enrollment for the Provider Portal is a separate process, does not meet this meaningful use requirement, and must go through DOPH. DOPH cannot offer technical support for implementation. If you are a “live” member of the IEHIE, this information is submitted to CalREDIE for you; self-registration is still required. Registration for all submitters, including IEHIE members, is through the CDPH Health Information Exchange Portal.

    Please note that this requirement is specific to electronic laboratory reporting of reportable results under title 17 §2505 et seq. if your health care facility or medical office is not participating in reporting title 17 reportable conditions through the calredie provider portal, reporting must still occur via confidential morbidity report. the calredie provider portal and reporting of title 17 conditions is distinct from calredie-elr. also, under all circumstances, doph still must receive telephone notification on conditions designated as “report immediately by telephone.

    This objective is a Stage 2 core requirement for CAHs only. For more information, visit http://www.cdph.ca.gov/data/information/tech/Pages/CALREDIE.aspx

     3.  Syndromic surveillance reporting is to be done to CDC BioSense. You must first register an operational relationship with our BioSense Data Steward, Rick Lopez (rilopez@rivcocha.org), to ensure that data you transmit is available to DOPH for review. Only emergency departments may apply at this time; non-EDs and provider offices must select another menu set option (see https://questions.cms.gov/faq.php?faqId=2903). Non-EDs cannot onboard with BioSense currently, but this may change in the future. This statement is not a waiver from this requirement.

    Once you have established an operational relationship with DOPH, you may then transmit data to BioSense from your own EHR. Unlike other Meaningful Use information, this data is de-identified. Although DOPH will assist you with constructing this relationship, it cannot offer technical support for actual implementation. If you are a “live” member of the IEHIE, this information is submitted to BioSense for you; self-registration is still required. Certain aspects of county syndromic surveillance will still be maintained in the ReddiNet system, but use of ReddiNet by itself does not meet MUS2 objectives. Registration for this objective is not through the CDPH HIE Portal. All submitters, including IEHIE members, must register with the DOPH Data Steward directly.

    This objective is a Stage 2 core requirement for CAHs. For more information, visit http://www.cdc.gov/biosense/ and http://biosenseredesign.org/

    4.  Cancer reporting is not operated by DOPH. The California Cancer Registry (CCR) is operated by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), not by the County of Riverside Department of Public Health. If you select this menu set option, you must specifically contact CCR. DOPH does not monitor CCR’s readiness status and cannot offer technical support for implementation; it is expected that CCR will be ready to receive electronic reporting by January 1st, 2014. As of this letter, there is currently no interface between the IEHIE and the CCR. Regardless of whether you select this option, you are still mandated to report certain cancer diagnoses to the CCR in general. This objective is a Stage 2 menu set option for EPs only. For more information, visit http://www.ccrcal.org 

    5.  DOPH does not currently operate specialized disease registries. This may change in the future. DOPH will provide advance notification of any specialized disease registry we plan to operate and how to integrate with them. This does not change any existing reporting requirements to other state or federal disease registries which may still apply. This objective is a Stage 2 menu set option for EPs only. 

    Although DOPH does not offer technical support for implementation, we do wish to ensure that all providers and facilities in the county are able to comply. We are working with both the IEHIE and the Riverside County Medical Association (RCMA) to make this possible. The Department is available for questions regarding public health meaningful use requirements and I may be reached by telephone personally at (951) 358-7036 or by E-mail at ckaiser@rivcocha.org

    I look forward to our cooperatively improving the health of all county residents through the superior technical interaction and care coordination meaningful use will make possible. 

     Sincerely, 

    Cameron Kaiser, M.D.
    Public Health Officer

    • Funding UCR School of Medicine

      California’s Senate and Assembly have unanimously approved identical bills appropriating $15,000,000 annually from the General Fund to the Regents of the University of California for allocation to the School of Medicine at UC Riverside. The Inland Empire has the lowest ratio of primary care physicians and specialists of any region in the state. The Council on Graduate Medical Education, a federally funded and authorized group that assesses the physician workforce and reports to federal policymakers, recommends a minimum of 60 to 80 primary care physicians and 85 to 105 specialists per 100,00 people. Sadly, the physician and specialist ratio in the Inland Empire is barely half of that recommended number. The UC Riverside School of Medicine is a critical factor in addressing this need, and consistent state funding is needed for the school to maintain its accreditation.

      Gary Honts Named Chief Executive Officer for JFK Memorial Hospital

      Gary Honts, who has been leading JFK Memorial Hospital in an interim role since September 2012, has been named permanent chief executive officer.  As CEO, Honts will oversee strategic, operational and clinical activities for the 156-bed facility and related outpatient clinics.

      “Gary is a highly qualified CEO with more than 30 years of healthcare industry experience during which he has led a wide variety of healthcare organizations including community hospitals, large trauma centers and an academic medical center,” said Jeffrey Koury, senior vice president for Tenet’s California region. “During his tenure at JFK Memorial, Gary has demonstrated exceptional leadership capabilities.  His extensive experience in hospital operations coupled with his knowledge of the hospital, its staff and the community will continue to make him an outstanding leader of the executive team.”  

      Since joining JFK Memorial, Honts has developed and executed strategies to provide high-quality, integrated care in the Coachella Valley community. Prior to his leadership post at JFK, Honts served as CEO at Creighton University Medical Center (CUMC) and Community Hospital of Los Gatos.  He also held leadership positions at Atlanta Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital (now a part of CUMC) and Hilton Head Hospital.  Honts earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska and a master’s degree in health administration from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Ill.

      “I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Coachella Valley since joining JFK Memorial and I’m eager to continue our plans for growth and service to the community,” Honts said. “With the continued growth in the region, our hospital and its outpatient clinics, such as the JFK Bone and Joint Institute, provide critical services to the area. We’re committed to meeting the evolving health care needs of our patients and the community.”

      JFK Memorial Hospital has been providing medical care to residents in the Central/Eastern Coachella Valley since 1966. The hospital offers a 24-hour emergency room, comprehensive orthopedic services, general surgical services, cardiac and vascular care, urology services, women’s and maternity/obstetrical services, pediatric services, acute care for the elderly unit, ambulatory surgery center and other inpatient and outpatient services.
