AMDCP Credit Designation: This session has been approved for a total of management 1.0 credit hours toward certification as a Certified Medical Director in Long Term Care (CMD).
Session Description: Long-term care (LTC) physicians are required to use certified electronic health records (HER) technology as are all other ambulatory physicians. While many medical directors and nurse practitioners are eligible for their state’s Medicaid HER incentives, physicians face Medicare penalties if they do not demonstrate Meaningful Use in 2014. This presentation shows how physicians can receive and use the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) 10.6 Message standard, mandated by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for use in LTC, in their HER to satisfy Meaningful Use. The basic standard messages exchanged between the LTC facility and pharmacy allows attending physicians to manage their HER census, receive their verbal orders as structured data and ePrescribe. The result is a model which establishes the objective of synchronized ‘Shared Clinical Records’ while allowing each party to document care in its unique regulatory environment.

Describe the difference roles played HIEs, Facility EMR vendors, and private Data Exchanges.
