HI150 Automation of Health Information

Discussion Topic: Class team Collaboration on Policies & Procedures for Health Information Exchange of Pharmacy Facilities

CLASSMATE POST #1

So I have worked in a pharmacy for over 10 years, retail, specialty, and long term care. They were all pretty much the same as far as security, fraud waste and abuse training is something that I have to take every year. One of the biggest issues we face is with controlled substances, esp[ecially with the ongoing opioid crisis. So we can talk about the policies for dispensing controlled substances especially those that are classified as C2’s (narcotics), or we can talk about fraud waste and abuse as it pertains to CMS. Let me know what you guys have found so we can post on time. Here are a few links to the information I found.

https://www.cms.gov/newsroom/fact-sheets/health-care-fraud-and-abuse-control-program-protects-consumers-and-taxpayers-combating-health-care

These are just a few of the issues facing pharmacies, there is also HIPAA when a patient doesn’t pick up their medications we can only have prescription adjudicated to the insurance for 14 days, once we void them they have to stay in the vial and we blackout patient information. I am available most of the day tomorrow, I will check in periodically to see where we are.

Pharmacy facilities do not necessarily know when the patient was admitted into the hospital. Pharmacists don’t have universal access to the patient’s labs or discharge summaries notes. In some cases, the patient may use a variety of pharmacies to get their prescription due to not covered under their insurance and it’s cheaper out of pocket at one particular pharmacy than another. This would mean that the pharmacist couldn’t get the list of medications that the patient is already taken would cause them to think of the patient’s safety by having this information upfront could be crucial to have especially if the patient has allergies to certain medication when dispensing or prescribing a drug. If pharmacy facilities could access the proper information through the HIE through the state to local or even the regional health information exchange this would really help the pharmacist have all the information needed to ensure the patient’s well-being.

I do use two different pharmacies to get my prescriptions because I dint have health insurance and one of my medications is $250,00 out of pocket cost and by getting this one prescription from this pharmacy I can get in for $16.00 so I save $134.00 so of course I am going where I can afford it. It was the other pharmacy who called this one regarding this medication cost 🙂

CLASSMATE POST #3

Nephrolithiasis also known as kidney stones are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form in your kidneys. (may clinic, 2020) Kidney stones have many causes. Some of these causes are diet, supplements, medications, excess body weight, and certain medical conditions. Kidney stones form when your urine has more crystal-forming substances than the fluid in your urine can dilute. (may clinic, 2020) The most common symptom of a kidney stone is a sharp pain in your side and back by your ribs. You may have burning or pain when urinating. You may have some blood in your urine. The urine may be cloudy and you may feel the urge to urinate often. One treatment for kidney stones is surgery. Surgery is only required when the stone is too big for the body to pass on its own. This surgery is called percutaneous nephrolithotomy. The make a small incision in your back and use special instruments to remove the stone. The patient then has to stay in the hospital for one or two days to recover.

Dialysis cleans your blood by passing it through a filter. Your blood is on one side of the filter and a fluid called dialysate is on the other. The waste and fluid in your blood pass through the filter into the dialysate. The bigger cells such as RBCs cannot fit through the filter. The dialysate is then drained from your body and the waste and extra fluid comes with it. The difference between hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis is hemodialysis uses an artificial kidney machine and with peritoneal dialysis your belly acts like a filter. If I was prescribed dialysis I would utilize peritoneal dialysis. I chose this option because doctors say that peritoneal dialysis is easier on your heart and better for you. One interesting fact I learned about the urinary system is that there are four different types of kidney stones. I always assumed that all kidney stones were the same and that there was only one type.

Hello Class!

Do you want to learn more about the kidney? It is such a fascinating structure and there is a lot of interesting information that can be found concerning the strange bean-shaped organ.

Check this link out: http://healthresearchfunding.org/7-interesting-facts-urinary-system/
Were you familiar with any of these? Did any stand out?

Now it’s your turn! Go out into the world and bring me back at least 2 strange BUT true weird facts associated with the urinary system (kidney, nephron, urinary bladder, ureters, urethra). Make sure to include your references and perform a quick double-check to ensure your information is true.

Have fun!!
