2010 Conference Update - “Navigating the River of Change in Healthcare”

When the 2010 Conference Planning Committee decided on the theme for the upcoming conference, little did they know they would be navigating some major changes as they worked to plan and deliver an outstanding educational event! The changes started with the resignation of Mary Kay Chess, NCHN Vice President and Chair of the 2010 Annual Conference Committee. Mary Kay, former Executive Director of Health Future, LLC resigned to assume a full-time teaching position with Bainbridge Graduate Institute (BGI). Dr. Chess is on a team to expand BGI’s role in Seattle. She is also providing Executive Coaching to leaders in healthcare, non-profits and in academic roles. The Board of Directors appointed Tara Cramer, East Georgia Health Cooperative, GA and Heather Fuller, Sunflower Health Network, KS as co-chairs of the 2010 Conference Planning Committee. Thanks to Heather and Tara for accepting this leadership role and to Mary Kay for her services over the past couple of years as a Director and Vice President.

Then, last week, the Hyatt called and announced they were undertaking a major renovation and moving our conference to the Convention Center. After much discussion, it was determined that it would be in the best interest of conference participants to locate a new property so that we could keep the conference in the same facility as our sleeping rooms. If you already had reservations at the Hyatt they are planning to do a block cancellation of all NCHN reservations and you should receive a cancellation email. If you have not received such an email by March 10, please let us know by emailing

Our new hotel is Omni La Mansion del Rio.  You may make reservations by calling Omni Reservations at 1-800-THE-OMNI and referring to the National Cooperative of Health Networks Association (NCHN) --16th Annual Conference. The room rate is $159 for single or double, plus local applicable taxes and fees.  Reservations should be made ASAP but no later than March 26.  Additional details are located on our website. The Board of Directors and Staff apologizes for this unexpected change.

Where: San Antonio, Texas
Registration limited to the first 32 who pre-register, so reserve early!

About the Workshop
Hospitals face escalating supply-chain costs, declining reimbursements and the need for improved efficiencies. How can healthcare organizations help their employees understand the financial impact of these issues and how their day-to-day actions can make a difference to the bottom line?

An increasing number of healthcare providers are using a sophisticated business simulation called Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy to improve the business acumen and financial literacy of their people.

Zodiak is an engaging, fast-paced simulation that helps clinical and nonclinical employees understand how their actions and decisions affect key hospital metrics. Paradigm Learning will offer an abbreviated version of this award-winning simulation at a preconference workshop on Sunday, April 18. This two-and-a-half-hour experience is limited to 32 participants.

So register now to reserve your seat and get into the game!

Monthly News Recap

Meaningful HIT Adoption for CAHs

[Excerpted from CMS Proposed Rule: How to Stretch Without Breaking]

Let's Get Meaningful
One thing we can all agree on: for the EHR incentive program to be meaningful, it needs to be designed to support our national goals of reducing healthcare costs and increasing healthcare quality. We’re moving to electronic health records not for the technology’s sake, but because we believe the technology is a means to actually help people and make things better.

The main area where people disagree is whether or not the meaningful use bar has been set too high to facilitate the accomplishment of these common goals. Those who argue for a high bar believe that lower standards will lead to watered down benefits. Those who argue for a lower bar believe that unachievable standards will lead to dramatically fewer providers making EHR adoption (and accompanying quality and efficiency) gains.

Mixed into all this are accusations from high-bar proponents that people who disagree with them are lazy whiners who should be focusing on meeting the standards rather than arguing against them, as well as suspicions from lower-bar proponents that advanced-EHR hospitals, systems, and provider groups have found a way to skim billions from the tax-payer trough for work that they have already done.

Let’s leave behind the name-calling and get meaningful! Continue reading...

Sebelius, Solis Announce Nearly $1 Billion Recovery Act Investment in Advancing Use of Health IT, Training Workers for Health Jobs of the Future

Grant Awards to Help Make Health IT Available to Over 100,000 Health Providers by 2014, Support Tens of Thousands of Jobs Nationwide

WASHINGTON, DC - Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis today announced a total of nearly $1 billion in Recovery Act awards to help health care providers advance the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology (IT) and train workers for the health care jobs of the future. The awards will help make health IT available to over 100,000 hospitals and primary care physicians by 2014 and train thousands of people for careers in health care and information technology. This Recovery Act investment will help grow the emerging health IT industry which is expected to support tens of thousands of jobs ranging from nurses and pharmacy techs to IT technicians and trainers.

The over $750 million in HHS grant awards Secretary Sebelius announced today are part of a federal initiative to build capacity to enable widespread meaningful use of health IT. This assistance at the state and regional level will facilitate health care providers' efforts to adopt and use electronic health records (EHRs) in a meaningful manner that has the potential to improve the quality and efficiency of health care for all Americans. Of the over $750 million investment, $386 million will go to 40 states and qualified State Designated Entities (SDEs) to facilitate health information exchange (HIE) at the state level, while $375 million will go to an initial 32 non-profit organizations to support the development of regional extension centers (RECs) that will aid health professionals as they work to implement and use health information technology - with additional HIE and REC awards to be announced in the near future. RECs are expected to provide outreach and support services to at least 100,000 primary care providers and hospitals within two years.

"Health information technology can make our health care system more efficient and improve the quality of care we all receive," said Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. "These grant awards, the first of their kind, will help develop our electronic infrastructure and give doctors and other health care providers the support they need as they adopt this powerful technology."
