Healthcare in a Changing Environment: Connecting Patients to Services

 

Shantelle Leatherwood, MHA,CMPE

Chief Executive Officer

Christ Community Health Services

 

 

The Christ Community Story: Healthcare is changing throughout the country. The way patients receive services and how healthcare providers address patients’ needs are undergoing fundamental change.  At Christ Community and in our community, we face an additional challenge.  Many of our patients come to us with deep-seated emotional, financial, spiritual and physical needs.  We work with them, through a team approach, to take care of their healthcare needs.  Our medical providers also emphasize spiritual as well as behavioral health to address societal problems that ultimately impact the overall health of our patients.  Importantly, the Patient Centered Medical Home model has moved us forward in improving both the continuity and overall quality of comprehensive and team-based patient care. 

 

Time:         Wednesday, April 26, 2017.  Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and presentation at 12:00 noon

Place:        Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis, Room 263.

 

Please RSVP Janis Lamar at jdublin@memphis.edu no later than Friday, April 21, 2017.

4.  Thomas Jefferson University also offers Master’s Degrees in Medical Laboratory Science, Biotechnology and Cytotechnology.  

Are you a graduating senior wondering what you can do with a science background? A 12-month or 2-year graduate degree may be the perfect solution. Jefferson’s Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences & Biotechnology has a variety of options.

·         A Master’s degree in Medical Laboratory Science.

In this program students will gain a solid base in all aspects of laboratory medicine, including 16 weeks of on-site training in clinical laboratory settings throughout the Delaware Valley. These “internships” cover clinical chemistry, microbiology, hematology, and transfusion medicine. Many of these experiences result in job offers!

  • Or, they could explore Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is one of the most promising sectors in our nation’s economy and offers opportunities in fields including research and development, manufacturing, molecular diagnostics, forensic science, agri-biotech, and the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Finally, we have exciting opportunities in Cytotechnology.

Jefferson’s cytotechnology program emphasizes cellular, molecular and immuno diagnostics, as well as modern management and education. This combination of science and real-world skills gives TJU grads an advantage in the cytotech job market, which includes clinical, research, commercial and cytology laboratories.

With a cytotech degree, science doesn’t only translate into a job, it offers career opportunities in a job market that is expected to grow and with salaries ranging from $60,000 to $80,000 per year.

  • All of these Master’s degree options are great steps to a stable career or toward doctoral degree programs, including  even medical school.

I am happy to assist your students.

What You Need to Know

Members of Congress head back into DC this week as congressional recess ends, and there are many urgent items on their plate to be addressed. The most critical is the need for action on the fiscal year (FY) 2017 appropriations bills, prior to April 28, when the current continuing resolution funding the federal government will expire. On the tax reform front, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) has stated that he will soon announce a hearing schedule for the tax-writing committee to examine the Republican tax reform blueprint. And let’s not forget about the Republican-led attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) stated that Republicans are putting the “finishing touches” on an effort to revive their ACA replacement bill and there is now a House "Repeal Obamacare Caucus," currently standing at more than 10 members. However, repeal efforts still face an unclear pathway forward.

At our Joint AACOM & AODME 2017 Annual Conference this week, I will address our membership and touch on many of these impending policy issues, as well as discuss the association’s advocacy efforts on behalf of osteopathic medical education (OME). We will also be celebrating the one-year anniversary of our national grassroots advocacy campaign with an exciting ED to MED Town Hall on Thursday, April 27, during which we will have a panel discussion engaging audience members and virtual attendees on the importance of grassroots advocacy from the OME perspective. I encourage you to attend in person or virtually by submitting your questions using the conference hashtag #EducatingLeaders17. The keynote speaker for our conference this year will be Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer prize-winning columnist, The Washington Post and political analyst, MSNBC, who will employ his nationally recognized storytelling abilities to outline the complexities of the health care landscape during his keynote address, “Today’s News: Who’s Up, Who’s Down and What’s Really Going On.”

We are excited to offer so many opportunities at our conference for you to be engaged and look forward to your continued advocacy.

6.  CASPA, the application service for Physician Assistant programs opens on April 27 for the launch of the 2017-2018 application cycle.  

It's the Final Countdown! The 16th CASPA application opens tomorrow, April 27, for the launch of the 2017-2018 application cycle. PAEA welcomes 219 participating programs, including 5 developing program members this year.

 Every year, our partner, Liaison, International enhances the application so it’s in tip-top shape for applicants and programs alike come launch day. This year, while we’ve added some new options to the application, not a whole lot of changes have been made that will result in a major impact for applicants, advisors, or our participating programs. 

 Over the past five years, we’ve seen a steady increase in applicant numbers at approximately a 6% increase year over year (or cycle over cycle) and we predict we’ll see the same this cycle. Brace yourselves for a busy cycle!

Applicants and advisors should contact CASPA’s customer service team at caspainfo@caspaonline.org or 617.612.2080 for assistance throughout this cycle. Best wishes for a great admissions cycle!

Applicant Help Center: 

http://help.liaisonedu.com/CASPA_Applicant_Help_Center

Five Tips for Your Applicants on Opening Day

  1. Be Prepared: if you thoroughly understand the process and have all your materials read, you'll be in good shape to sail through your application. In fact, you will have a better experience if you spend an extra day or two preparing your materials rather than rushing to create an application. 
  2. Read Up: if it's been awhile (even if it hasn't been) since you've checked out the FAQ, you should review how to prepare pre-launch and learn about application deadlines in our Applicant Help Center (linked above). 
  3. Don't Obsess About Applying on Opening Day: it's not Black Friday or a concert, so relax...a little. We know you've worked hard to get to this point and we want to help you on the way to this important goal. Remember, the application will be available at night, the next day and weekend, and for months after that. You've got enough stress in your life and you can avoid additional tension by simply waiting a day or two to create your account and get started on your application. 
  4. Anticipate Delays: with so many folks trying to apply on opening day, all elements of our operation may move a bit more slowly than normal. Our teams are certainly trained, ready, and eager to serve you during the next cycle, but wait times may be a bit higher for the first few days of the application season - this is normal. See #3 and we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. 
  5. Skip Opening Day: don't take the day off from work or school to complete the application on April 27. Save your time for hiking, shopping, or a vacation instead and come back after the weekend to start your application. 

We realize you're excited, eager, and probably a bit nervous about this process. Be assured our teams understand the importance and the stress that comes with the application process. We hope you will take our advice, be well prepared, enjoy a few extra days of spring, and then undertake a successful application a cycle!
