Event Information: Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators? Webinar: Oral Health
Date and time:  Thursday, March 24, 2016 12:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
Duration:     1 hour

Oral health is an essential part of staying healthy, especially for people living with HIV/AIDS. Inadequate oral health care can undermine HIV treatment regimens and diminish quality of life. People who are HIV-positive need comprehensive and individualized oral health care, yet many people with HIV have unmet needs for oral health care.[1]

Join us on Thursday, March 24 at 12 p.m. ET to learn how the Boston Public Health Commission’s HIV Dental Ombudsperson Program is working to remove or reduce barriers to oral health services for people living with HIV/AIDS. This webinar will include information about the importance of oral health and strategies to improve oral health among people living with HIV/AIDS.

Purpose of the Activity: ODPHP has identified a gap in health care and public health practitioners’ knowledge of current data related to national health priorities. These priorities are the basis for health improvement planning across the U.S. and among states, local health departments and hospitals, especially as they engage in the process of public health accreditation and in meeting the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. This series of webinars is designed to increase practitioners’ ability to identify critical health issues/needs for planning, understand data trends and analysis, and apply interventions at the community level that have been evaluated and shown to “move the needle” toward higher levels of quality and/or health improvement.

Objectives of the Activity: By attending this educational activity, participants will be able to (a) Describe the critical health issue (LHI) that is the focus of the webinar and discuss its implications for the health for the nation; (b) Identify the current data and trends for the LHI; (c) Explain at least one evidence-based strategy that can be used at the community level to address the LHI.

Target Audience: Nurses, Physicians, Health Educators, Public Health practitioners, interprofessional public health practitioners.

Teleneurology: Why It Works for Rural Hospitals Tuesday, February 23, 2016
2 PM Central Time

Sign up today!

The webinar will focus on the benefits of teleneurology to rural hospitals. Attendees will learn how teleneurology can accelerate diagnosis and treatment of stroke and other acute neurology patients, and can prevent rural hospitals from having to transfer those patients to facilities in metropolitan areas to get the care they need.

Hear from a rural hospital CEO that has successfully implemented a teleneurology program.

Following a brief introduction of telemedicine and its basic components, the webinar will focus on results that best-in-class teleneurology providers are achieving, including:

*   Average response time of 3.5 minutes

*   Average diagnosis and treatment time of 21.8 minutes

*   40% decrease in time from emergency department arrival to admission

*   1 to 1.2-day decrease in hospital Average Length of Stay (ALOS) for stroke patients

Attendees will learn how teleneurology consultation via two-way videoconferencing and remote patient monitoring technology is used effectively across the spectrum of acute neurological emergencies, including cases involving status epilepticus, coma, intracranial hemorrhage and utilization of tPA.

Cost: Free

Who should attend: Rural hospital Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Medical Officers, Chief Nursing Officers, Nurse Practitioners/Physician Assistants, Hospitalists, Physicians, Emergency Room Directors and other Clinicians

Presenter: Duane Miller, MBA, FACHE
