Advocacy Updates

 

During a recent meeting of the State Consumer Health Information and Policy Advisory Council, representatives from AHCA reported that in order to develop the "form" (required by HB 843) they will first need to initiate a formal rule making process.  We expect that process to be initiated in the near future as AHCA works to develop an explanation of the quality measures and the relationship between patient safety and the hospital's data for the quality measures as required in the law.

 

 

As you know the first day of the upcoming Legislative session is January 14, 2020 and we will hold an onsite meeting of the Advocacy Committee from 3-5 PM on January 22, 2020 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Tallahassee Florida which will be followed by a reception (hosted by our Business Partners from 5:30 to 6:30) and our FSHRPMS Advocacy Day will be January 23, 2020 at the Florida Capitol from 8:30 AM to 3 PM. Please  click here to review for the full schedule and register for our 2020 Advocacy Day.  We have secured a special discounted room block at the Hilton Garden Inn at the rate of $194.00 per night (breakfast and free parking included).

Advocacy Alert - AHCA Quality Measures Form

As you know House Bill 843 was signed into law and the effective date was July 1, 2019.   

The law requires AHCA to create a "form" with data that must be provided (by each hospital) to patients or a patient's representative. 

During a meeting yesterday of the State Consumer Health Information and Policy Advisory Council, representatives from AHCA reported that in order to develop the "form" they will first need to initiate a formal rule making process.  We expect that process to be initiated in the near future as AHCA works to develop an explanation of the quality measures and the relationship between patient safety and the hospital's data for the quality measures as required in the law.

Many of you have contacted me with concerns about the “form” mentioned above as well as the development of the “explanation” required in the bill.  Please note that I have been in contact with the leadership of AHCA and I will be working with our Advocacy Committee to provide input on both the “form” and the “explanation” of the relationship between patient safety and quality measures. Please be sure to follow future Advocacy Alert Messages for an update on the timeline and the specifics of the form development and implementation.
