What’s New

National Health IT Week, September 26-30.  Join the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMMS) and their co-sponsors for daily events held this week to raise awareness to the importance of Health Information Technology (HIT).  To help providers better understand and adopt HIT, the Office for the National Coordinator (ONC) released the Health IT Playbook with a section dedicated to Rural Care Settings, outlining the unique implications for implementing Electronic Health Records in rural areas and a site dedicated to resources for Critical Access Hospitals and small rural hospitals.

Indian Health Service Awards $6.8 Million for Telemedicine Services.  Last week, the Indian Health Services awarded a contract to Avera Health to provide telemedicine services in all 19 Great Plains Area service units, which serve approximately 130,000 American Indians and Alaska Natives. Telemedicine services use electronic communications to connect health care providers and patients for remote clinical appointments, as well as some nonclinical services. In some cases, specialty care furnished through telemedicine is supplemented by a nurse or assistant who is physically in the room with the patient. IHS has found that telemedicine can be one of the best ways to get health care services where they are needed most, and this contract expands telemedicine services as a means of strengthening access to care at IHS health facilities in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota.

FDA Seeks Technology to Reduce Opioid Deaths.  With support from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) invites computer programmers, public health advocates, clinical researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators from all disciplines to create a mobile phone application that can connect opioid users experiencing an overdose with nearby carriers of the prescription drug naloxone, which can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, but it is not widely available.
