Patients and providers will continue to engage with one another virtually after COVID-19, but what this engagement looks like depends on many factors.

This webinar will recap telehealth growth and experiences of the last two years, highlight critical success factors and strategies for increasing telehealth uptake, the state of clinical standards for the practice of telemedicine, and the impact of the regulatory environment.

Each phase of the webinar will provide the opportunity for participant questions.

Patient Centered Transformation in School-Based Health Care: Lessons Learned

June 23, 2015The patient center transformation process is both challenging and rewarding. NYSBHA, in collaboration with Monetfiore School Health Program and the Primary Care Development Corporation, has piloted a draft set of standards adapted from NCQA’s 2014 Patient Centered Medical Home model defining 3 levels of SBHC service encouraging a full service, comprehensive model of integrated primary health care. The principal aim of this pilot is to implement these standards at 5 SBHCs, analyze the feasibility of transformation and post pilot, advocate for the adoption of the finalized PC-SBHC standards by school health funding and regulatory agencies.

Through our PC-SBHC pilot project we have identified the challenges and developed tools for SBHCs to deliver patient centered quality care.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify challenges associated with patient centered care and the tools developed to achieve quality care
  • Practice utilizing these tools to create their own transformation
  • Ask key leaders of the project questions about full process through documentation collection

* Reminder: Sexual Harassment Training DeadlineBy October 9, 2019, all New York State employers must provide all employees with a sexual harassment training that meets standards set by a recent New York State law. New York City employers with at least fifteen employees must provide New York City sexual harassment training that meets standards set by a recent city law by December 31.

One way for employers to comply is by requiring their employees to complete an online training developed by New York City, which is available here. That training also satisfies New York State’s sexual harassment training requirements.

Employers who are subject only to State requirements can use either the City’s online training, although not required to do so, or the State’s online training, which is available here.

For more information about New York State and New York City sexual harassment compliance obligations, see Lawyer’s Alliance for NY’s Legal Alert.
