KHA will host a 340B Compliance Workshop on June 21 in Louisville. The program offers 1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face credits.

Safety net hospitals struggle to stretch scarce resources to provide crucial services to their pa tients. The 340B program is essential in ensuring that hospitals in Kentucky and nationwide are able to continue to provide pharmacy care to its most vulnerable patients.

The subject matter experts at this interactive workshop will present valuable insights on how safety net hospitals can effectively navigate the 340B program so they can improve patient outcomes and help low-income and rural patients access essential pharmacy services.

View the brochure for program details. Online registration...

The CDC considers this the third wave of overdose deaths in the growing epidemic, characterized by a surge in synthetic opioid overdoses, following prescription opioid deaths (first wave) and heroin deaths (second wave). The death rate for synthetic opioids doubled to 6.2 per 100,000 people in 2016.

Because fentanyl, a highly potent synthetic opioid, is increasingly mixed with other opioid and benzodiazepine pills, heroin and cocaine, the CDC suspects fentanyl is also contributing to rising death rates among those substances.

The CAH Swing Bed Management Training with Supplemental Review of the UMRHRC PI/QI Measures from the Pilot Project will be held June 6-7 at KHA Headquarters in Louisville.The program is intended to assist small rural CAH hospitals with training for their staff to improve the quality of their swing bed program.

It will optimize the patient outcome, increase utilization and revenue while preventing denials for their swing bed services. Given the longer training program, more time than in the past will be spent on discussing day-to-day operations.

For details, visit the event page. You can register online to secure your place in this training event.
