Help Protect Telehealth Access for Our Seniors - Urge your Representatives to Cosponsor H.R. 7663!

Help Protect Telehealth Access for Our Seniors - Urge your Representatives to Cosponsor H.R. 7663!

Click Here to access this link to support the HR 7763.

Ask your Member of Congress to support and cosponsor commonsense legislation that would ensure Medicare beneficiaries may continue to access care through telehealth after the current health crisis has passed. The Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020 (H.R. 7663) would do just that.

For too long, outdated and overly burdensome restrictions in Medicare have severely limited access to telehealth services for our seniors and vulnerable populations. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and in-person care was not an option for many patients, particularly the most vulnerable populations, Congress permitted providers to deliver care via telehealth on a temporary basis – providing a lifeline to patients and providers. Throughout the pandemic, health care systems, providers, and the federal government have invested time and resources in telehealth to ensure patients can continue to receive necessary care in a safe and effective manner.

There is no longer doubt that clinicians and patients benefit from telehealth – for many it has been the only safe means to access vital care. However, our seniors will again lose access to this important service unless Congress takes decisive action and makes these changes permanent.

Back in June, AdvaMed, the Alliance for Connected Care, American Telemedicine Association, eHealth Initiative, Health Innovation Alliance, HIMSS, and PCHAlliance led 340 healthcare organizations in a letter urging Congressional leaders to make telehealth flexibilities created during the COVID-19 pandemic permanent. This legislation is our best chance to achieve these goals.

Now we need your help to protect the critical gains. We must continue to ensure access to quality care. Tell Congress we can’t go back and ask your Member of Congress to cosponsor bipartisan legislation that makes these important changes permanent.

Instructions:

1. Fill in the form with your information to identify your Member of Congress.

2. You will see a preview of the pre-written personalized letter that will be sent to your Member of Congress. Feel free to edit the letter or leave it as is, but we strongly encourage you to add a personal story about how telehealth has played an important role for you or your organization.

3. Hit the 'Submit' button to send the letter!

Thank you for your help protecting telehealth for all Medicare beneficiaries! Please share this campaign with family and friends, and spread the word on social media.

PCS Webinar June 1st @ 9am: How the Final Rules on Information Blocking Will Affect Your Organization

On May 1, 2020, the Office of National Coordinator (ONC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) simultaneously published their final rules implementing the 21st Century Cures Act.  On April 24, 2020, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) released its Proposed Rule on Civil Monetary Penalties (CMPs) to be imposed against actors who engage in prohibited “Information Blocking.” These new rules and standards will turn on their heads certain policies and procedures that covered entities and business associates may have adopted in accordance with HIPAA and permitted business practices, and now all need to be updated to ensure that they do not violate these new 21st Century CURES’ Act rules.  There is a lot on everyone’s minds these days, but deadlines loom around the corner and implementation cannot be completed hastily.  Join us for this Webinar to get a lean and focused overview of what you need to do to comply.  All types of Healthcare Providers, Health Information Exchanges, Health Information Networks, and Health IT vendors will benefit from this Webinar.

HLNY/HIMSS Webinar: Harnessing Innovation to Rethink Your Ambulatory Care Environment 6/18 @1pm

Healthcare Leaders of New York (HLNY) & the New York State Chapter of HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) is proudly co-hosting: Harnessing Innovation to Rethink Your Ambulatory Care Environment

Organic growth and acquisitions have rendered existing Ambulatory Care Networks obsolete and inefficient. Healthcare systems are focusing on developing ideal geographic distributions of new and current sites of care that optimize access, capital costs, operational costs, and population health management goals. They are creating standardized templates for the “Medical Office Building of the Future,” including a common vision for the end-to-end flow of patients, staff, and providers in the new facilities, and space requirements to support lean operations, and virtual care. Healthcare executives and ambulatory care managers must understand how to deploy ambulatory care to best support their organizations’ strategic, financial, and operating goals.
