Prevention EHR Retention Brochure

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Prevention EHR Retention Brochure

Retention is crucial for continued provider success in utilizing EHRs to ensure that patients receive potentially life-saving preventive services.  It’s normal for practices to encounter challenges when implementing a whole new way of managing and documenting patient care. This communication piece will help you communicate the important message that by sticking with the project, practices will not only improve their quality of care, but be well positioned to qualify for Medicare payment incentives.

If any QIO would like to customize this Prevention EHR Brochure, they may contact Anthony Culver at aculver@tnqio.sdps.org.

Individualized Wheelchair Seating Guides for Older Adults

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Individualized Wheelchair Seating_PartI_RaderJonesMiller

IndividualizedWheelchairSeating_PartII_JonesRaderMiller

Current seating methods are clearly not meeting the needs of elderly persons. However, few caregivers know what to do about it. What is needed is individualized seating. Individualized seating means identifying the person’s body contours, range of motion, orientation in space, and implementing a seating system that best positions and supports the person for comfort and function.

You will note that there are two Parts to the Guide – Part I is a Guide for Caregivers and Part II is a guide for Professionals. Although some of the content is the same in each of the guides, there are some significant differences in several chapters. Please refer to the Tables of Contents of each guide to determine the differences and identify your particular needs.

Anticholinergic Pocket Card

Many commonly used medications exhibit anticholinergic side-effects.  The elderly are more susceptible to anticholinergic adverse effects and severity can be cumulative as the number of medications a person is taking may increase.
The Kansas QIO has created a pocket card that lists commonly used medications that have anticholinergic properties.  The list is not to be considered all-inclusive.
